Gressa Bronzing Serum

The more I play with makeup, the more I realized I needed a solid liquid bronzer. You can really sculpt out the face before laying down your foundation to create a beautiful, natural contour. Most of the bronzers I’ve ever used (both powders and creams) contain some form of mica/shimmery component.

Vered Divinité

Famed New York esthetician Vered Back is the master creator behind VERED organic Botanicals. Several years ago, I recall seeing an article about her and her hand crafted skincare and perfumes.

Fast forward several years to present day me; blogging about all things related … Continue reading Vered Divinité

These Multi-Use cremes pack a punch! Habit is vegan and cruelty free. They are also made … Continue reading Habit Cosmetics

The entire line is built around the prized ingredient, nilotica (NILE-oh-TEE-CA). It’s an incredibly rare form of shea butter that grows near the Nile Valley with a composition of 25% higher essential fatty acids than shea butter … Continue reading LXMI
