Note: This jar (provided for review by the brand) is the older packaging with the former name, Leejiham Vita Propolis Cream. Glow Recipe still uses this name and you’ll probably find more reviews under the old name. Continue reading “Bee Mine: Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Cream Review”
Why do I love Farmacy Green Clean AND why will I not repurchase?
After sniffing 4 tubs of this cleansing balm, I concluded that the scent (the true joy factor) is extremely inconsistent from batch to batch. With an unreliable joy factor, this is just not worth the risk to buy.
I actually loved this on first smell when Bella Noir Beauty (her review here) let me try hers after raving about the scent: key lime pie mixed with heaven. Throw in the creamy lime color, and there was SO MUCH JOY that I resolved to buy this the next time I needed to restock cleansing balm. I also recommended this to a few of you during the fall Sephora sale based on pure yumminess. Continue reading “Who Nose: Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm Review”
Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule is an old favorite with a new name. I first used it 3+ years ago, practically an eternity for a skincare addict. It’s about time I shared my love for it. (This particular bottle was sent by the brand, but I’ve purchased multiple bottles on my own.)
2017 was a long year. Instead of recapping all the awful things that have become the new normal, let’s bury our heads in fluffy beauty stuphs. Continue reading “2017 Furvorites”
I got the blues…and I’m happy about it.
Blue skincare is one of my obsessions. Most often, blue is associated with anti-inflammatory azulene (from blue chamomile) or with skin-regenerating copper peptides (not to be confused with copper metal).
My latest obsession, NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum (aka CAIS), falls into the latter category. Can you blame me for loving it? It’s like gazing upon a sea of hopes and dreams.
The pawpularity of feline fashun is undeniable. At the furfront of this trend is Paul & Joe Sister, which needs no introduction to us CATTE LADIES. We’ve been fans of the Purrisian label’s catte-themed threads longer than this blog has existed.
Pssst…Through Nov. 30, 2017, use coupon code PVTS25 for 25% off the whole Paul & Joe Sister site!
What better way to wear your heart on your sleeve than to literally wear your beloved cat—or dog if you’re into that—on your shirt?
Animal Hearted—which donates 25% of proceeds to animal rescues and sanctuaries—does custom pet shirts (and its own designs created in-house). Given
my our obsession with a certain feline, we pounced on the chance to try the custom shirts (courtesy of Animal Hearted).
Tl;dr: The purrrfect purrresent!
Sandwiched unassumingly between Chanel and Dior at London’s Covent Garden (aka beauty heaven–just see the list of beauty shops) is a bright, airy Deciem store featuring practically all the brands under the Deciem umbrella.

I started my campaign for sunscreen balls needing 3,500 votes. Just yesterday, the final vote was cast, meaning that my balls can move to the next stage in Volition Beauty’s process: testing and refining prototypes to make the balls of my (and I hope your) dreams. Awww yeah!
I’m so excited, but above all I feel #blessed (saying that
un-ironically mostly un-ironically). Thank you to everyone who voted and everyone who encouraged others to vote. ❤ Whether you were there on Day 1 or Day Whatever Yesterday Was (it’s been a loooong campaign) and whether you posted on social media or voted under your cat’s name, you’ve been essential to a successful campaign–way more so than my ball jokes (which will continue thankyouverymuch).
Stay tuned as I shape and tweak my balls into a final product.
WE DID IT! 😭🎉 . 🏐⚽️🏀 After months of shameless promotion (and puns), my balls will become reality! Thanks to you all–from Day 1 through today–who voted and who posted on your blogs and Instagram and everywhere else about my balls. You are influencers in the best way. I've especially been heartened and humbled by the flood of stories and posts in the last three days, as the campaign clock was ticking down. It really is YOU–this true *community* of skincare and AB fans–that turned my dream of balls into a product that will now be prototyped and tested and made ready to be rubbed all over your face! ⚪️💖⚪️ With ball my heart, THANK YOU. -Angela
My idea for sunscreen balls feels like a neverending quest–even though the voting campaign only started in the spring. Good news: Volition Beauty has lined up a lab to start making prototypes. BUTT my balls won’t move any further unless the vote goal is met. So pleeeaase vote HERE. Only a week left! My balls thank you.
