Hey everyone! How are you? (Mental health check in the comments). I haven’t updated in a while but I wanted to drop in and rave about my Amika hair dryer for a minute. Specifically, the 1875 watt Brooklyn Heat. I’ll also mention their amazing 3D Volume and Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner later on.
I bought this dryer a little over a year ago and it is the absolute best hair dryer I’ve ever used! I cannot believe the quality, super high end. Not to mention the design is to die for – right down to the box it comes in, beautiful. The price point of Amika dryers is a little steep (around $120) but in my opinion absolutely worth it.
Now down to the actual specs – Brooklyn Heat comes with 3 temperature and 2 speed settings. The LED lights indicate changes in the temperature and speed (super pretty btw). There is a removable end cap + lint filter which makes for seamless cleaning. There’s also a cool shot button which I love, it helps set your look perfectly because this baby gets HOT!
Amika hair dryers are next level and I highly recommend investing! Another product I swear by is their 3D Volume & Thickening Shampoo + Conditioner.
Cruelty-Free, Vegan and recyclable while also being free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and petroleum is no easy task! Wow!
This weightless shampoo thoroughly cleanses and plumps from root to tip for the ultimate go-big moment now, and healthier-looking hair every time you use it — thanks to redensyl®.
I can honestly say I’ve seen a big difference in my hair since I started using both the shampoo and conditioner. It’s definitely much thicker, I was actually getting worried at how thin it was getting until I switched to Amika. The scent is a big plus for me too, it smells so good! Again, the price point is a little steep but with the results and quality I can say it’s worth it.
Thanks for reading, I hope you’ll check out Amika – let me know if you’ve tried them before in the comments.
How’s everyone doing? I just wanted to drop in and rave about Fenty Skin’s new detoxifying clay mask Cookies N’ Clean for a minute! This won’t be a particularly long review but this product is worth a special mention! The first thing I noticed is the texture, super bouncy! I don’t know if ya’ll have been keeping up with the reels for Cookies N’ Clean but you can literally bounce the product with your finger! It’s too pretty, a light grey with black charcoal beads that break to darken the mask when you massage it in. It’s TRULY a masterpiece!
Let’s get down to the details:
Unique lightweight and fragrance-free whipped clay formula helps extract dirt, oil, and impurities
Encapsulated charcoal bursts upon massaging the mask into skin and helps detoxify
Salicylic acid helps clarify pores
Instantly refines skin’s texture and minimizes the look of pores
Instantly reduces excess oil and fights shine throughout the day
Tested on all skin types, including sensitive skin
Now that we’ve peeped the specifics I want to dive in to what using the mask is like. Firstly, there are a LOT of charcoal beads – which I love! The mask itself applies evenly despite the beads which do break when you massage them in. I find them a little hard to break but I feel like this helps exfoliate. The sensation from the mask is the best part, icy – clean and fresh I absolutely loved the way it made my skin feel during and after treatment.
Packaging recommends 2-3 times a week and I agree so you don’t dry your face out. I say this because it CLEAN cleans your pores! I was having an oily acne moment complete with itching and one 15 minute application cleared it right up. I can’t recommend this mask enough, let me know if you’ve tried it in the comments and keep an eye out for my upcoming review of the entire Fenty Skin line! ✨
Do you have #fobo (fear of breaking out) – me too! I’m so super excited to share with you Dermala’s Best Cleanse Forever Hydrating Cleanser & Oat So Sweet Daily Moisturizer! Both formulated to improve acne prone skin. Ahhh! I’m so impressed with each! The cleanser smells super fresh, clean and left my face oh so soft! Best Cleanse Forever features some pretty amazing ingredients:
SE Microbiome & Sugar Complex (prebiotic + postbiotic essence)
All favorites of mine with a ton of benefits you can feel after one application! I followed up with Oat So Sweet and I am definitely sticking with it as my daily moisturizer. Dermala products are inspired to work with your unique skin-and-gut environment, the microbiome, so you can achieve glowing blemish-free skin through the natural power of probiotic skincare – how cool is that?!
Definitely recommending this brand HIGHLY and look forward to exploring more of their products. Best Cleanse Forever is so lovely as is Oat So Sweet, thank you for sending them my way to try Dermala!
Once again I’d like to thank Influenster for sending over Replica – Beach Walk by Maison Margiela free for me to try in exchange for an honest review. Firstly the packaging is cute, the box has a matte feel making it a little hard to open – I actually had to open the bottom first. Still not entirely sure if It’s meant that way. Initially I couldn’t get the pump to work so I had to unclog it with a needle – unexpected due to the products super high price point.
The scent! Wow! Strong and long lasting this perfume induces clear memories of the ocean and beach. I am literally transported back to my teens and the nostalgia factor is off the charts. I recommend wearing this out in the Summer, night or day. It’s super clean and appropriate for most occasions.
For this post I will be focusing on a few of my favorite Truly Beauty products. Let’s start with the Unicorn CBD Body Butter – Absolutely love the whipped texture of this! Very soft and smells just like cotton candy. It leaves my skin feeling amazing and really helps my dry spots especially my elbows! You can really tell the difference between this and the Unicorn Butter Truly makes without CBD. I definitely recommend spending the extra for the benefit of the added CBD. One con I have is that it’s not the easiest to apply – you really have to let it warm in your hands well before application, I would say its harder than your average whipped butter.
Next up is the CBD Jelly Anti-Blemish Body Mask which I absolutely love! If you’re a fan of watermelon this is for you! It’s SUPER scented and the scent actually carries a while. My favorite thing about this mask is the texture – as the name suggests it’s actually jelly. Pairing this mask with the CBD Jelly Anti-Blemish Body Cleanser has been a complete game changer for me and I cannot rave about this line enough!
Moon Rocks Whipped Body Scrub is soo good! Again as with most Truly products the scent is heavy. Blue Tansy and Lavender are what I pick up on the most, it’s heavenly but like i’ve said before I have seen people complain about the scent being too heavy – in my personal opinion this is not the case but I am a big fan of scented skincare. This product is super exfoliating and really gets the job done, the whipped consistency is again beautiful! Truly has been blowing me away with their textures and this is definitely a stand out product.
Last but not least i’d love to shout out the Truly Unicorn Fruit Lip Plumping Balm! I absolutely love the whipped consistency of this balm! It’s minty and plumps my lips without burning. It also leaves you with a nice glossy shine. The rainbow swirl is beautiful as with all truly unicorn products! Definitely recommend especially for the price point.
Thanks for reading and I hope to have more Truly Beauty centered reviews soon!! I’d rate this brand as a whole, a solid 4 1/2. They’re definitely not just a famous TikTok trend – their products are worth it and super beneficial.
I’m so thrilled to announce Tru Earth’s new scent of eco-friendly laundry detergent strips! This is especially exciting because there was only one other scent previously (which I absolutely adore) Fresh Linen. This new scent option launched April 2nd 2022 and is currently available to snag which is a huge deal because it’s also Tru Earth’s 3 year anniversary!
Every Tru Earth Laundry Detergent Eco-Strip is ultra-concentrated and hypoallergenic. You get eco-friendly cleaning power in a tiny, pre-measured strip of detergent that you just toss in the wash.
Gently scented Lilac Breeze is a sensory delight, evoking memories of fields of fresh lilacs in a warm summer breeze.
New zero-waste compostable packaging
No measuring & no mess
Dissolves completely in Hot or Cold Water
Works in all washing machines, including HE. Front loads or top loads.
Helps keep 700,000,000 plastic jugs out of landfills per year
Tru Earth Eco-Strips are a smarter way to clean laundry, period.Each strip packs ultra-concentrated, eco-friendly cleaning power into a tiny, pre-measured strip of detergent that you just toss in the wash. Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE).
The smart formulation effectively seeks out and dislodges dirt molecules and stains, keeping them in suspension until they are rinsed away. It makes your laundry washing chore easier, healthier, more economical, and much kinder to our planet.

Detergent that cares about our planet – 94% less transportation pollution
We care about the future of the world we live in. This is why Tru Earth Eco-Strips laundry detergent has a dramatically smaller eco-footprint than liquid and powder detergents. Its packaging uses less plastic, and its light weight reduces transportation fuel consumption and global-warming carbon emissions by 94% compared to today’s leading-brand liquid and powder detergent.
Over 30 billion of loads of laundry are done in North America each year, and the environmental impact is massive. A load’s worth of today’s leading detergent weighs in at over 40 grams. A single Tru Earth Eco-Strip weighs less than 3 grams, or a whopping 94% lighter! With so much less to truck around, and no plastic jug, Tru Earth Eco-Strips helps you lighten your load on the environment. If everyone switched to Tru Earth Eco-Strips, the annual eco-savings would be enormous:
Eliminate one billion plastic jugs (you read that right!), saving 700 million from going to landfills
Save truck fuel and CO2 equivalent to taking 27 million cars off the road for a day, or planting nine million trees
No More Measuring – No More Mess
Let’s face it. Traditional laundry detergent is messy, and wastes so much space. Measuring out detergent whether it is liquid or powder almost always results in spillage. I don’t know about you, but when I’m doing laundry, I don’t need another thing to clean up.
With Tru Earth, 1 strip equals 1 load. No measuring and nothing to spill.
Uncompromising Cleaning Power
Just because you want the chore of doing laundry to be simpler, cleaner, and more eco-friendly doesn’t mean you have to give up cleaning power. This is why we haven’t cut any corners with Tru Earth Eco-Strips Laundry Detergent.
Each strip of Tru Earth laundry detergent weighs just 3g, and packs the same power as 40g of premium liquid or powdered detergents.
Take back your cupboard space! Traditional detergents fill up valuable cupboard space. Tru Earth Eco-strips give you back your space with our ultra-efficient packaging. Our packaging is so efficient that, you can fit over 400 loads worth of Tru Earth Eco-Strips in the same space as a single 100 load jug of traditional detergent.
Wow! This is such an amazingly beautiful scent! Lavandin and Clary Sage are paired perfectly with Virginia Cedarwood and Vetiver. The packaging is just stunning as well, a smooth black flask!
It’s kind of pricey but worth it, in my opinion – i’m rating 4 1/2 stars for this reason alone. Thank you Influenster and Ralph Lauren Fragrances for sending me this fragrance for free in exchange for my honest review, I love it!
So excited to have received the Tatcha Indigo Overnight Repair Cream free from Influenster in exchange for my honest review! My expectations were super high and I have to say Tatcha definitely lives up to the hype. This cream goes on powder soft and leaves your skin feeling amazingly hydrated. I cannot believe the difference since I started applying before bed! I had severe “acne rash” not quite sure exactly what beside my nose but it’s 100 percent gone, score!! Love this stuff and highly recommend – it’s literal magic in a jar!
Completely in love with my FOREO Luna 3 that I received complimentary from Influenster! It is too amazing for words! It’s the first in skincare technology and there are 16 intensity settings plus it’s app controlled! How crazy is that? You can even set a custom routine the device remembers while the app is off 😱
As for functionality the Luna 3 is completely waterproof and my face feels so clean! I could instantly tell the difference after my first use. I am using the Luna 3 for normal skin and it easily exfoliated my dry patches away, my acne was even less red after. I highly recommend this magic device, it truly is something special and definitely worth the price point in my opinion.
