Mask Yourself This – Some Borghese Mini Reviews

Borghese

Like every other brand, both old and new, Borghese is now on a quest to market itself to a younger crowd.¹ Which I totally understand and think is a good thing. The market has changed a lot. There are “influencers” and most people/new customers take recommendations from people online or on apps versus sales associates or glossy mags. I get it.

2017 Empties

Empties are posts that I do where I tally the amount of beauty products that I empty. It also is something that I do that makes me feel like a total hoarder (empty bottles accumulate until the end of a month for a “photo shoot”), but hey, bloggers are weird people. There’s a few reasons why I’m so consistent with my Empties post. Firstly, it helps me keep up with what I’m actually using. I can quickly reference and see if something was a hit/miss for… Continue reading | 18 Comments

I’m continuing the week with more gift guides! Here’s my gift guide for those that appreciate naturally beautiful products. Warning, it’s rose-heavy. I’m sorry. I can’t help myself.

1. Rodin Jasmine & Neroli Gift Set – This Rodin gift set has the best products, imo. It has the limited edition face oil, hand cream, lip balm and sample of the body oil. I adore the limited edition vintage wallpaper packaging. Retails for $134… Continue reading
