Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer – Oily Skin Review

We here at Leslie Here – which is just….me…Leslie (hi!) – love a good one-two punch. Any sort of product that promises to do two things at once. One that helps to eliminate the need for two steps, the need for two products, the need for two PURCHASES. YAS.

Another thing we (I, me, just Leslie) love to do is watch endless amounts of YouTube videos, and this product, the SmashboxΒ Photo Finish Primerizer has been on the lips of so many “gurus” lately. I have been curious about this since it launched, and then gosh darnit, if it wasn’t 40% off during the “Love Your Skin” event that Ulta always reels me in with!

So I got it, and here we are.

The Ordinary. Skincare Review – Round 3!

Leslie here with yet another round of thoughts on items from The Ordinary! This skincare line is extremely affordable, but made with clinical technologies, and very straightforward ingredients, claims, and marketing. I, for one, have had great luck with almost everything I have tried from this brand and will continue to try ALL THE THINGS.

On the chopping block today, we have: Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%, Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, & Argireline Solution 10%. Let’s. get. in. to. this!

In Rotation – Current Faves, Recent Empties

Leslie here! Have you missed me??

I know I’ve been slacking on this blogeroni, but I’ve actually been kind of boring lately. I’ve been on a ‘no buy’, and just trying to use up the products I already have in my stash. It’s kind of satisfying finishing something! And getting to use an entire product to the end, you get a clearer picture of what the product can offer you. I am really loving my skin these days, and I think its due to the combination of products (and consistency!) that I have been using.

These are some of the things I am PLEASED about having to completely use up. As well as a few (ok a lot of) items that I have recently used up (with mini reviews!) Let’s go! Continue reading

But finding an SPF for your face when you have oily, sensitive and acne prone skin can be tough. ENTER – Cane + Austin Prime & Protect.Β  Continue reading
