Beauty site Into The Gloss is one of my favorite blogs to visit. There's something special about sharing the different products that make you feel pretty and confident. Celebs, designers, and writers share with Into The Gloss their skincare routines and favorite makeup products.One of their best interviews is with actress Debi Mazar. What a fireball!

It is only right that a beauty site such as this should branch out and do something that's never been done before. Enter Emily Weiss, founder of Into The Gloss and who just started skincare brand, Glossier. Glossier is a "modern beauty brand inspired by real life." I love that! Glossier will be releasing several products in different phases. Phase 1 consists of a face mist, priming moisturizer, a perfecting skin tint, and a skin salve which I happily already own.

I have a mild obsession with all-purpose creams, ointments, or lotions. This balm dotcom universal skin salve is just that. The waxy thick texture can be used on your lips, dry areas like elbows, on scratches, and under your eyes for instant and lasting moisture. I even tried it on small rash I had on my forearm (cold weather problems) and was satisfied to see that it helped minimize the itching and redness. I like the dewyness of this balm and they are not lying when they say it is long-lasting. However, I do wish the tube was bigger.

Glossier's motto is "Skincare first. Makeup second. Smile Always." What's something that makes me smile? Their packaging. All of their products are super girly in light pink but also super minimal — perfect so you can decorate the bottles with stickers which conveniently come with your package. FYI I added a rainbow sticker on my tube.

I'm looking forward to seeing the next phases of Glossier. Until then I will contemplate whether I should buy their priming moisturizer. I think I will.

Will you check out Glossier? Any Into The Gloss fans?

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Smooth and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

October 4, 2014

Ricky's NYC is this amazing beauty store that has everything beauty related at your fingertips. From hair care, skincare, makeup, and accessories this place has it all. For anyone who is a beauty junkie this store is like Disneyland! You can spend so much time browsing through products. They carry many drugstore brands and even higher-end brands like French brand Embryolisse. I definitely recommend going to this store if you're in New York. 

I've been wanting to buy Embryolisse's Lait-Crème Concentré for a while now — since August to be exact. After not being able to find the smaller version I was finally able to find it at Ricky's. This Embryolisse cream is multipurpose. It can be used as a makeup primer, a makeup remover, or as a moisturizer. Since the weather is getting colder I've been using this product as a nighttime moisturizer. After I cleanse my skin and remove all of my makeup I apply this cream all over my face. It leaves my skin soft, hydrated, and the smell is so delicate and lovely. Using this really does make me feel French!

I'm also always on the lookout for any frizz-fighting conditioners therefore Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Smooth conditioner was something that I definitely needed to buy. Overall, Aussie products are great and I've used their original 3 minute conditioner which gave me awesome results. This newer version though helps fight frizz for 24 hours! After washing my curly hair I applied this conditioner and I did not rinse it off. I left it on and then styled my hair as usual. My hair felt soft and my curls were more defined. 

I'm already making a list of other products that I want to buy for the next time I stop by Ricky's. Have any of you been to a Ricky's? Have you tried any of these products? Follow me on Bloglovin!
