Having ultra sensitive, fussy acne prone skin is hardly anything to brag about.  And it makes going bare skinned at times… daunting. So after a month of using PMD I’m excited (nervously so) debuting makeup free skin.  Their personal microderm tool seemed to give my skin a complete 180.  My uneven skin tone, breakouts and […]


As dedicated as I am to my skincare and specific skincare companies, I’m quite opposite with my makeup.  I know what brands suit my overly fussy skin, but much more than that I’m always looking for ‘the next big thing.’  That being said I have those ‘ride or die’ products I would never go without.  […]

Good skin is hard for me to come by. And good products are even harder. It’s not often I highlight an entire skincare brand on here, as my skin is all too fussy for just one line.  To have one company meet all my requirements is quite a lot to ask, so my skin does […]


It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared  beauty post on here!  But with all the changes in my life lately I think it’s just one of those things that has taken a big back seat. Or more something I haven’t focused on much.  (Also But while I may not be lining products up or […]
