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. Recently, I’ve decided that life is short and if I want to wear silk and cashmere then I am going to wear silk and cashmere. Lack of dry cleaning facilities be darned, I’ll hand wash! 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.

Everlane Lightweight French Terry Crew – a review

Welcome to my first Everlane review! I’ve talked a fair bit about sweatshirts already, but I felt that there was room for one more in my collection. My Everlane Lightweight French Terry Crew is different from my other sweatshirts in shape, fit, colour, and fabric so I think it was a worthwhile addition to my closet.
