St. Ives Apricot Scrub: Review

Let's talk skincare! For the past couple of months, I've been dealing with some really bad breakouts on my face. They come and go and honestly it does suck seeing my skin not looking its best. I've been trying all types of skincare products and changing things up to try and see if anything improves, and guess what? It did!
So, I have to give some credit to this amazing scrub. I heard so many good things about it before I got it, but I wasn't that excited to try it out. Yet let me tell you, when I finally got my hands on it, I realized why everyone was in love with it!

The best thing about it is that it's not harsh on your skin at all. You do get the exfoliating effect, and you can feel how fresh your skin gets after using it, but it doesn't feel too abrasive.
It can be used twice a week, but at some point I used it every other day and it left my face feeling super smooth and way less bumpy. I always felt so refreshed after using it because of that! And it helped me out with my breakouts since it cleaned my face well and allowed any cleanser or face wash I used after to really have an effect.

Can you tell I love this product? I honestly don't have anything negative to say about it. It's just that good! Overall rating? I'd give it a 9.5/10.

Huda Beauty's Liquid Lipstick: Review

Okay so, I already mentioned this in my Instagram post (check it out here if you haven't already), but I absolutely love this lipstick shade! Honestly, I'm a pretty basic gal. Most of my go-to lipstick shades are nudes and browns #noshame. This shade is kind of out of my comfort zone since it definitely is more dark than what I usually go for, and it has a purple tint to it. In my opinion, it's such a good shade!

The formula is quite good and it dries nicely and smoothly. The wear isn't the best out there, as it fades on the inside of your lips when you eat or drink, but it's easy to reapply and it doesn't crust or feel weird. The color just needs a swipe or two to make sure that it reached its full potential and the color pay-off is looking good. It's transfer-proof which is always a good thing! However, it might need lip balm after using it cause it can dry out the lips a little.

So, my overall review? I'll give this product a 8.5/10. I'm kind of biased cause I just love the shade too much!
