ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

I’m always doing something to my skin….always trying to make it ‘appear’ a particular way – brighter, more even toned, pimple free, etc. My focus is largely been on improving the outward appearance of my skin. But until I decided to do a four week trial of Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, I never gave [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future

#FlawlessFuture

Ahh, the pursuit of flawless. For me — it started in my early twenties (while battling adult acne and hyperpigmentation)….A few years later I started my blog and the social media flood gates opened and that lead to this breakneck pace of needing to ‘flawlessly’ maintaining 930,747 social platforms without missing a beat…yikes, the pressure!

Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide

Now how does that famous quote go?…”Flawless skin is next to godliness”. Ok, I just made that up. But when my skin is free of imperfections, I gotta tell you — I feel unstoppable and maybe even a little Godly. I feel like the Queen of Everything. But with skin-tuations (I just made that up, [...]

Garnier-Ultra-Lift-Transformer-10776

Today’s Topic — Skin Care. If you’re anything like me, your routine requires many steps. First I cleanse to remove the grossness of the day.

Hyperpigmentation Series: Lancôme DreamTone

Lancome-DreamTone

Do you dare to go bare? No, not down there, silly! I’m talking about up top…your face. How often do you go bare there?… If you answered “not often”, you’re not alone. But what’s stopping you? For many it’s uneven skin tone and complexion-marring dark spots. This certainly was the case for me years ago [...]
