Good Molecules eye gel

A while back Good Molecules gifted me a few of their most popular products and since then I’ve been interested in trying more products.

If you don’t know what Good Molecules is, it’s the affordable skincare brand sold on Beautylish.

They offer a nice variety of products to fit different skin concerns without being overwhelming.

Today I’m talking about the Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel. (not gifted)

I was initiag surprised at this squeeze tube packaging. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an eye cream come in thus type of packaging but you know what? I like it! I like the idea of being able to squeeze out the very last bit of the product, haha.

Even though I knew it was a gel, the texture itself surprised me as well.

The only thing I can compare it to in looks and expectation is vasaline. But, it’s not actually anything like it.

The gel went on nice and smooth and quickly absorbed into my skin. The yerba mate is used to achieve more radiant, energized skin.

Like with all skin products, I’ll need to continue to use this to see the lasting effects but for now, at $6US, I would definitely recommend trying this eye gel.

Morning must haves

It’s officially heater season and with it comes dry skin and a runny nose for me.

Fortunately I’m not having to worry about people seeing my flaky skin but it’s still a concern so I’m doing everything possible to protect my skin.

With all the skincare I have, I probably overdo my routine but I do have some staples I stick to:

Saturday Skin 10% Glycolic Acid + Pore Control Compkex (gifted) : helps refine and smooth skin’s appearance. I use this 4-5 times a week

Peach & Lily The Good Acids Pore Toner : an exfoliating toner that’s gentle enough for daily use. It’s designed to wipe away dead skin cells and has ingredients to keep your complexion clear, which is perfect for mask enduced acne.

Innisfree My Lip Balm : this is a mousse texture balm that instantly hydrates your lips. I apply this right after toner and leave on while I finish my skincare routine and makeup.

Fresh Beauty Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence (gifted) : this is for smooth, luminous skin and makes my skin feel instantly hydrated.

Saturday Skin Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado (gifted) : helps with dryness, dark circles and puffiness. This adds instant hydration to my undereye area.

Tatcha Serum Stick: a concentrated treatment and touch up balm. I use this on my chin, my eye socket area and between my brows. These are my driest and most wrinkled areas so I figure they require the high intensity stuff

Laneige Water Bank Hydro Essence (gifted) : help with dryness, dullness, uneven texture and oiliness. This is described as “an essence that drenches the skin in esencial moisture” and that’s exactly what it does.

Saturday Skin Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream (gifted) : helps with dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. This is a great moisturizer that doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily and is lightweight.

Are any of these part of your morning routine? What are your must haves?

Dr Denese Skincare Review

I was gifted various skincare products from Dr Denese Skincare for review.

I love a brand that offers a full range of skincare products, I think it’s the easiest way for someone to establish a routine.
These products contain a range of ingredients including: Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Ceramides and Retinol to name a few.

I’ve been using some of these for a few weeks now, slowly integrating them into my existing routine, and I love the results I’ve seen so far.

One of my biggest concerns is a very oily t-zone, the face serum helps mattify this area without drying out the rest of my face and gives me a blurring effect.

The hydrating dream cream is hydrating without making me oily and the spf offers a lightly tinted matte finish that really smoothes out my skin, tones down my redness and doesn’t make me oily.

Of all the products, the sunblock is the one product that I was most blown away by. With this, I’m able to go without foundation and just set my face with powder and have an almost flawless complexion.

I enjoy using the eye masks before applying my makeup and I feel like it helps hydrate and absorb creams in this area. My favorite part of this are the little plastic tweezers that come on the inside of the lid to help grab the eye masks.

Overall I would recommend this product to anyone starting a skincare routine and also to any skincare junkie.

September 19 Weekly Empties

Even though it’s only Tuesday, I know I won’t have any other empties this week so here are my accomplishments!

Pixi Retinol Tonic – it was OK, I’m not really excited about the product or results for the cost

Available at Ulta


Petite N Pretty Fully Feathered Volumizing Mascara – I got this in a Boxycharm and I really liked the way it made lashes look but I don’t know that I’ll be paying the $16 for it but if this is in your price range I definitely recommend it!

Available at Ulta


Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat shampoo and conditioner – these lasted me a while because I wash my hair once or twice a week. I really like the oil and protective primer but the shampoo and conditioner left my hair feeling a little coarse, I have thick wavy, color treated hair. I won’t be repurchasing these.


Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads – I received these through Boxycharm and was able to buy backups from their pop-up sale because I really enjoyed these! They’re gentle enough to use daily or you can use them 3-4 times a week

Available at Ulta


And I used a few TonyMoly face masks which I love for extra and quick hydration

What empties do you have this week?

Farmacy Green Clean Makeup removing balm

Recently I’ve been enjoying buying mini sizes of products for two reasons. I can try the product out before committing to it and there’s more of a chance I’ll use it all up and feel better about my spending habits.

Last night I finished 0.4 fl oz of the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup removing balm

I enjoyed the scent and how soft it melted onto my face. It doesn’t feel oily or heavy and it removed my makeup nicely.

I did have to focus on my mascara more in order to get it off but that’s pretty standard; I use two or three coats of mascara.

I enjoyed this balm but have another to use up before deciding if I will purchase a full size.
