A dupe for Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In One Lactic Acid Treatment that’s too good to keep to myself!

Sunday Riley Good Genes

It’s very dry where I live. Think of a desert with snow. As I’ve aged I’ve found that my skin is less able to cope with the climate than it was when I was younger. It’s still oily but now, for the first time in my life, I am having to deal with the occasional dry patch, some redness, and a general tight feeling in my skin. Unpleasant. I got this generous sample size of Sunday Riley Good Genes All-I-One Lactic Acid Treatment in a Sephora Favourites box of goodies I bought last winter. I finally got around to using it in February and within a few weeks my skin was looking the best it had in a long time. Colour me impressed.

Everlane Shirred Silk Shirt – A Review

Welcome to another Everlane review! In the past I’ve stayed away from delicate fabrics such as silk and cashmere. I was worried that I would not be able to properly wash them (we do not have access to reliable dry cleaning where I live) and end up ruining the garment.

I’d been eyeing up Everlane’s silk shirts for several months so I was delighted when the chance to try out their Shirred Silk Shirt came up. I ordered it in black because I did not want to tempt the fates with a lighter colour.

What’s in my product empties box and a mini review of each item

I’ve finished up quite a few products lately and I thought I’d give you a run down of my thoughts on each item in my product empties box with a mini review of each!

Deva Curl Leave-In Decadence

I like to use a leave in conditioner on my hair before applying my styling product. This one was fine. It was not too heavy or greasy. It did not have too much of a scent. I love the Deva Curl shampoo and conditioner that I use but I have to say that this leave-in is nothing special. It does the job but I wasn’t blown away by it and I don’t feel the need to repurchase.
