Wellness by CLEAN:  Purity ($76.00) & Harmony ($76.00)

Purity eau de parfumhas top notes of bergamot, mandarin, tea, and ewberry, along with notes of rose, jasmine, muguet, and geranium at the heart. The base consists of cedarwood, sandalwood, elather, and musk. CLEAN describes this scent as “softly soothing and centered.” Between the two new Wellness offerings (Purity and Harmony), I do prefer Purity if only because it smells a bit more like a soapy fragrance than traditional soap. There’s still the cleanly scent easily detected, but there’s some sweetness and floralness (the rose, jasmine, and bergamot coming out to play) that lifts it up.

Harmony eau de parfum has top notes of Italian lemon, eucalyptus, and rosemary, along with notes of rose, jasmine, and orange blossom at the heart. The base consists of cedarwood and musk. Again, CLEAN describes this scent as “for centered, balanced living.” I found this one more closely scented to soap. It seems lighter than Purity, as well. I think this is a great, wearable scent for those who don’t like the more cloying traditional scents and perfumes.

The best thing about taking photos of every look you do is that you have the ability to go back in time and reminisce (good or bad…).  Not only will you stumble upon some looks where you’re like, “What was I THINKING?!”, but looks that make you go, “I need to do that again!”  You start seeing how you’ve improved, how you’ve gotten better at certain areas of your makeup.  It’s exciting and fun, and it really does make me feel more encouraged to keep going and growing and trying my heart out.

I would love to have you all look back on your makeup history and tell me how you’ve changed, how you’ve improved. If you have photos, even better, but alas, I know most of us are not nearly as camera shameless as I ;)  Please share your stories as we reflect back today!

I also made a corresponding close-up timeline (each close-up comes from the full-face photo in the above timeline). Continue reading →
