SiO Beauty Face Lift and Brow Lift | Review

As someone who’s had horrible acne growing up, skincare easily became an obsession of mine. I began doing a ton of my own research and trying out different products and went full force in my early twenties. I wanted to take care of my skin and do anything and everything possible to make it not only clear of blemishes but also prevent any wrinkles and fine lines. This review will be about an incredible product from SiO Beauty that has immediate results to fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

SiO Beauty FaceLift and Brow Lift Review

Something I’ve heard repeatedly from family and friends older than me is how they wish they began to take better care of their skin earlier on, specifically in their early to mid twenties. Needless to say with that message drilled in my head at a young age, I began incorporating anti-aging and smoothing products into my regimen by the time I turned 22. I turn 26 in just a few days and I feel skincare is more important than ever so when I heard of SiO Beauty’s FaceLift Patch Pack and what it’s designed to do, I was immediately intrigued.

Holiday Makeup Wishlist | Sephora VIB Sale + Ulta Beauty 2017

A few days ago, I published my first ever Anti-Haul where I listed a few products/brands I won’t be spending my money on. As I was scrolling through Sephora, Ulta, and numerous Instagram pages to remind myself which products I wasn’t going to bother with, I was left drooling over holiday makeup items I’m eager to get my hands on. Moreover, Sephora’s annual VIB Sale is right around the corner so now is the perfect time to share my wish list and get recommendations from all of you!

HOLIDAY MAKEUP WISHLIST 2017

Most of these are new launches for Holiday 2017 and some products may be new releases or products I just haven’t got to trying yet. Nevertheless, the makeup industry has left me wishing I had a few thousand bucks to spare on the following products.

7 Affordable Makeup Brands | Product Hits and Misses

As a beauty enthusiast, I love trying makeup in all price ranges – luxury, high end, and drugstore. As much as I love me some luxurious and prestige beauty products, I am a huge fan of affordable makeup. Why spend $30 on a primer when you can find something that does a wonderful job for just a few bucks? Also, it’s great to be able to find affordable dupes of pricey items we’re unable to get our hands on or reason to purchase. Moreover, if you’re new to makeup or wanting to experiment with certain types of products and shades, it’s always great to test out affordable items before taking the splurge on high end products.

7 Affordable Beauty Brands To Haul + Hits and Misses

That being said, I wanted to share affordable beauty brands I absolutely love. Not only do these brands have great prices but the quality of many of their items are incredible for the cost, some even perform better than products that cost double, triple, even quadruple the price! Like any other brand, these do have products that didn’t work for me so I’ll be sharing a few misses along with the hits.

Anti-Haul: Beauty Brands and Products I Won’t Be Purchasing

My first ever anti-haul! The beauty industry is constantly growing and new products are being released left and right, it’s nearly impossible to catch up! That being said, I feel there are quite a few products that are hyped up so much when the products themselves don’t seem appealing, innovative, etc. Moreover, I know it’s “just makeup” but there are a few brands I refuse to support for various reasons..when you see the names, you’ll more than likely know why. If you don’t, you’re welcome to google it and see why – I’m just one of many who have the similar feelings!

Anti-Haul: Makeup I refuse to Purchase

Just to be clear, if I mention a single product that doesn’t mean I dislike the brand whatsoever. Every brand has hits and misses, I’m just sharing the products I feel aren’t worth purchasing for MY own needs.
