Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Review

My Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk review may surprise you. This is one of those things I just Had to. This may surprise you but I won’t be buying this again or recommending it.

Pros: It is a good moisturizer. My skin responded well to it. I like it a lot.

Cons: Firstly, it is not worth the price tag. I have tried many moisturizers and this simply compares to many other affordable moisturizers out there. Another sticking point is that you, well I, needed more than the recommended 3 to 5 drops to cover my face–it finished quickly.

Overall: it’s good (just good) and I don’t value the price point. Nothing about it stood out to make me think it isworth the asking price.

Sephora Cream Blush Review

Good morning beauties! Today I’m sharing my love for Sephora’s Cream Blush in Coral Rose. This is not a new item, I purchased this last summer when I was looking for a softer blush. In the midst of putting away winter make up and pulling out spring and summer make up I thought I would share a review with you!

 I normally like to wear a cranberry-ish blush but I have been moving into more neutral blushes or just highlighting. The minimum. Tori at my local Sephora immediately showed me this beautiful coral blush. True to myself I gave her a hard time and wasn’t really willing to try but I’m so glad that I did  because it is gorgeous. I am also digging this cream formula. This is definitely worth a swatch on your next visit to Sephora if you are looking for a lightweight blush for a kiss of color.

xx, Pasch


Review: Pulsaderm Buddy


Hi beauties!  I was so happy to try the Pulsaderm Buddy.  Having a good skin care regimen is very important and this product is a winner.  It is priced right, works well and is user friendly.  I used it on my face at night for a little over a month.  I thought I could give a better review if I used it at the end of the day (stored in shower)–clear off all of the days makeup and see how it cleaned my skin.  I didn’t quite use as directed, I wet the brush instead of my face to begin.  Please visit the site for more information or to purchase here.

Pros: the brush is soft and gentle, made my skin look and feel fresh and clean, great size–compact, plug-in charger, you can choose from a select range of colors, water resistant, affordable, love love the travel bag it came with.  A great product.

About:  “All the power, half the size: Pulsaderm Buddy ($69) stimulates and invigorates through two speeds of state-of-the-art proprietary sonic pulsation technology. Weighing in at just 4.2 ounces and measuring 2 x 2.5 x 3.5 inches, Pulsaderm Buddy is much smaller, lighter and more affordable than leading competitors. Available in six fun colors (black, white, lavender, blue, green and pink), the Pulsaderm Buddy comes with two brush heads—Regular and Sensitive.”

Cons: none.

OCM Product Update + Review

 Update and review of 2 OCM Products.

Hello beauties! It’s no secret I use the OCM (Oil Cleansing Method) as my skin care routine and I have 2 goodies to share. They’re not new but they’re new to me. I’ve been using coconut oil for years and it works great but my sister gave me the Deep Cleansing Oil from DHC to try. I LOVE IT.

True to Amazon, when I went to order the beloved DHC Deep Cleaning Oil I was shown “What others have looked at or purchased.” It’s such a TRAP lol!!! Anyway…I saw the Garnier Nourishing Cleansing Oil and just  These products are not new, but they are new to me. DHC retails for about $25 vs Garnier at about $6. That’s a win for me if the Garnier is great. Guess what? IT IS! I love how the Garnier cleanses my skin. My skin is super dry. It cleaned off my makeup and left my skin feeling clean and soft. I’ll be sticking with this Garnier Nourishing Cleansing Oil for now and save my money.

Have you tried either?

Pros: it’s natural, gentle, affordable and long lasting.  My skin responded well to it and I found it soothing.  I have sensitive skin so was hesitant but committed to the review.  Besides, it is all natural so I went for it, safe enough for a baby they say. I went on to buy a charcoal one for my daughter with oily skin.

Cons: none.

March Makeup

beauty blogger, makeup junkie

March makeup…maybe?  One of my favorite followers on Instagram, thatcrazy8, shared what she going to reach for in March. I told her I’d share mine, you know as a beauty blogger (or makeup junkie) you acquire a lot of makeup. I do try to rotate my products so I get to use/try them all. Since January, however, I’ve been stuck on my January and February favorites.

Soooo, in response to thatcrazy8, I’m hoping to go back to using my MAC Paint Pots as primer, pink and purples lip glosses and the 2 eyeshadow palettes in the picture. I’ve been moving away from lipstick for some reason…

Do you have anything you’re hoping to use more in your makeup stash this month?
