Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Lip Balm!

my answer: I wish they were more that had higher SPF ratings! I love lip balms that last at least a few hours on lips, because so many just disappear SO quickly that you feel like you’re always re-applying.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Eye Cream!

my answer: I’m not sold on the idea of eye cream as a whole; I’m just not convinced they’re necessary if you’re using an effective moisturizer/serum on your face already, though I’m sure they have benefits and work well for some (and less well for others). It’s not something I have in my routine at present based on what I’ve read up until now. My eye area is somewhat sensitive, and nearly every eye cream I’ve tried has burned the eye area–and I’m applying on the orbital bone/eye contour (not directly onto the lid!), which is why the whole face moisturizer/serum makes the most sense for me.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Drugstore Skincare!

my answer: This is true of high-end, but they can be really obnoxious in scent! Sometimes with sunscreens, the texture doesn’t seem as refined, so it doesn’t apply as smoothly or dry down as quickly. I like the price point, which is a given, but this is really important, because you can use as much as you need–you don’t feel bad using it or feel like you should be conserving it!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about High-End Skincare!

my answer: A lot of them are very perfume-y, and when it comes to scents in skincare, I am far more sensitive to them. I think everyone (whether it’s $5 or $50) over-promises on benefits, but when it’s high-end, it can be frustrating when they don’t perform well. I like the texture, though, of a lot of higher-end skincare products.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Glitter Top Coats!

my answer: I love that they can add pizzazz to any manicure, but I get really annoyed when you have to fish shapes or bits out of the bottle or if you have to do a lot of maneuvering of the glitters on the nail so there aren’t empty areas.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Brow Gel!

my answer: I love it and try to use it more often to keep brows in place, but sometimes I feel like I’m over-paying for the product (probably because I am).
