My name’s Simone and I have been a skincare/beauty lover for years. I have struggled with clearing my skin (and keeping it clear), smoothing my texture, and nourishing my skin for a flawless makeup application. I relied on research and a LOT of experimenting with new products in order to start seeing results and figured I start a small blog to help others that may be struggling with similar issues! I’ve dealt with all of these issues and I have literally tried everything under the sun to fix them. My skin has been oily and acne-prone since about sixth or seventh grade. I remember begging my mom to take me to a dermatologist and buy me makeup to cover up all of my acne ten years later and the struggle is still real! Throughout the years I have used prescriptions (both oral and topical), drugstore products, and even natural/organic alternatives. They usually work for a while, but then my skin gets used to it and boom – we’re right back to where we started.
In school, I majored in Chemical Engineering with the hopes of working with either a beauty or skincare company to help people like me that just can’t seem to find the perfect product or combination of products. I have learned a lot about skincare in general over the years – both through trial & error and in my own research.
Here I’ll try out products (both skincare & cosmetic) and provide you all with my most honest and informative reviews – including whether I would recommend them to anyone with a different skin type or continue using them myself. If there is any product or brand you would like me to try in particular, please let me know! I am always on the hunt for new items to try and I know how much I rely on other people’s reviews before making a purchase (especially on higher end brands).
So here’s to all things skin – hopefully we can lessen some of the struggles together!
