Even though the green beauty market is quite crowded, where new brands pop up every single day, Kypris Beauty clearly holds its own ground, thanks to a carefully curated line of Beauty Serums and Beauty Elixirs. I held off on purchasing their products for a very long time, primarily because I was in no immediate need of new … Continue reading Kypris Beauty Serums – Antioxidant Dew, Clearing Serum, and Moonlight Catalyst
Apart from the Empties from the #GreenSurvivor challenge, I have a whole bunch of other empties that I wanted to summarize here. It gives me such a sense of achievement to finish up products – I’m sure I’m not alone here, right? This post has been in Draft status for the longest time, and I’ve already collected many more empties that I’ll post soon. Also, I have decided that I need to put a spending ban – my stash is out of control (again!). The sheer number of products I have can sustain an entire family for at least a couple of years. So, I’ve started giving away samples and products that I know I’ll never get to — especially to those who are just getting started on their green beauty journey and would like to make the switch. I am putting it in writing here so I can be held accountable – I will not be purchasing any new skincare and makeup items, unless it can’t be substituted with a similar product from my stash.
Packing my clothing, shoes etc. doesn’t take me much time at all, but as you’ve probably guessed, skincare and toiletries in general is another matter. It takes me several hours to get those sorted out, and decanted into smaller jars, and bottles. I’ve gotten better at this, having traveled quite frequently in the past year … Continue reading What’s In My Travel Bag?
My Instagram followers are probably well aware that I’ve had a bit of a splurge in the last two weeks, ever since the #greensurvivor challenge hosted by Tamara ended (Participants needed to cough up 2 – Makeup, 3 – Skincare and 4 – Body care empties by 02/19). In addition, ahem, I bought a couple of other products from Tatcha, Fig + Yarrow, and RMS Beauty over the weekend (need someone to snatch away my credit card from me – No, that won’t work either because I have it memorized). By the way, all of this week, F + Y has an amazing 40% off discount sale that you must take advantage of! I’ve been lusting after this brand since a long time, and finally took this opportunity to splurge. RMS Beauty was giving away 4 lip shines for $60 only (40% off) as a V-Day special — I’ve never bought anything from them previously (gasp!) since I have a lot of makeup products that still need using up, but my inherent hoarder mentality couldn’t resist this offer. I’ll post pictures of these hauls as soon as my packages arrive. AND, I won Deep Steep and the super awesome Kjaer Weis $75 Gift Card Giveaway (still waiting on the goodies to arrive…). Guys, I never win giveaways! I’m super stoked.
