Is It Worth The Hype? Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask Review

When it comes to my face, I am always fighting imperfections. I’m creeping up on 30 years old, and I still get acne on occasion (OMG are you kidding me right now). It’s just a part of life I guess, but I will always do what I can to avoid it.

New Brush on the Block: Meet Brushopolis (Our Review)

As a hairstylist let me be honest, I’ve gone through a ton of brushes trying to find the best that will hold up to my daily abuse. On an average day, I do at least 4-5 blowouts. So basically, finding a high-quality brush that will hold up to my abuse is a top priority.

A hairbrush is just a hairbrush though right?

Dead wrong.

There are tons of different types of brushes out there, especially when you are a stylist. Different sizes, different shapes, different bristles, different cores. I could go on and on about it.

As a professional in the beauty industry, I always research all of my cosmetics before I buy because I don’t want any questionable ingredients in my makeup that could be bad for my skin or otherwise. That’s why, when I was looking for a new makeup to use, Max Factor caught my eye. I checked the list before purchasing and found nothing that would raise any huge red flags.

I was also immediately impressed because as I read about the brand, I found that Mr. Max Factor is in fact, one of the original fathers of cosmetics. After reading that I dove a little bit deeper into the history and could not wait to try out the products. And on top of that, I loved the price point.
