A dermaroller/microneedling tool is covered with tiny needles that you roll along your skin.  These needles create a lot of very small micro-injuries and those injuries trigger your skin to send collagen and elastin to help repair the issues.  Collagen and elastic production is responsible for tight and clear skin, so it can help with a variety of issues and, because it can be done inexpensively in the home, it has become a popular way of assisting your anti-aging skin routine.

Top 5: Cruelty Free Makeup Brands

Top 5 Cruelty Free Makeup Brands Thumbnail

Here are my Top Five Cruelty-Free makeup brands listed, all confirmed on the Leaping Bunny website. Whether you’re looking for bold colors or natural and easy multi-tasking products, this list has you covered.  All of these brands have cruelty-free cosmetics and all of them have vegan options for those that abstain from using any animal products.  What I loved most about researching for this list is finding out why the creators of these brands prioritized cruelty-free.  It’s an obvious statement to say a lot if not most people prefer to know their products aren’t tested on animals.  Knowing which brands prioritized that out of a love of animals rather than a desire to bring consumers what they want was really interesting, from my perspective anyway. Obviously, I couldn’t possibly fit all of the cruelty-free makeup brands into this one video, so I highly recommend you look at the Leaping Bunny


How to Do a TCA Peel at Home | TCA 30% Chemical Peel | Before & After Results

Chemical Peel Thumbnail

While I was in recovery for my cervical disc replacement and on bedrest, I decided it would be the perfect time to do a TCA chemical peel at home. I have had experience with 10% and 15% TCA chemical peels and it was my intention to purchase a 20% TCA peel, but I accidentally ordered a 30%. I went easy with this round because it was the first time doing a 30% TCA chemical peel, but I think next round I’ll let the chemical set a little more before neutralizing.

DUPE IT: DIY MAC Fix + and Diamond Glow Finishing Spray

DIY MAC Fix+ and Diamond Glow/Strobe Spray

Ooooh, shoot, you guys! It’s that time of year that we start thinking about others while looking at all the bomb makeup deals we would be able to take advantage of if our capitalist society was based on every man, woman, and child having the right to great cosmetics…but, you know, it’s nice to give, or whatever. If you still want to pamper yourself, why not create some beautiful finishing sprays for pennies on each dollar you would pay for a fancy pants one from MAC Cosmetics. Note: this is a finishing spray, not a sealing spray. This will cut down any excess powder and blend your products into your skin so that it looks more natural, but you won’t really be able to use this instead of Urban Decay’s All Nighter if you plan on dancing your booty off all night and working up a sweat. Enough chatter, ONTO


HOT OR HYPE: Glamglow Pout Mud Exfoliator & Wet Lip Review | At Home Lip Treatment

Glamglow Pout Mud Exfoliator Review

I got my hands on the Glamglow Pout Mud Exfoliator and Wet Lip duo, so I decided to do a little review for y’all. This winter you can keep that pout looking smooth as a smooth thing by using this Glamglow mask for your lips. Here, I teach you how to use Glamglow Pout Mud to exfoliate dead skin and rejuvenate and hydrate with the at home lip treatment. You guys will probably know that my Hot or Hype videos usually end with me saying “nope, this doesn’t work” or “meh, I guess this is ok”, but this one had me shooketh to my core(eth).  It seriously worked!  I have perpetually dry and cracked lips because water tastes like nothing and I don’t drink it unless I’m not too lazy to make it fancy (which I’m often too lazy to even put on real pants, let alone putting juices and


Hanacure Mask Demo & Review | Hot or Hype

Celebrity Face Mask

A celebrity favorite, but is it worth it? You’ve likely seen all the Instagram photos of celebrities looking like they aged a lifetime in a matter of minutes because of the tightened and dried face mask. These photos seem to be every-damn-where and the advertising hogs the algorithm of the feed of any social media site. So, you know everyone is doing it, but is it worth the money? This single-use mask comes with a lifting serum that you pour into a gelling pack and you shake it to activate the product.  It also comes with a synthetic-hair brush applicator for ease of application.  The packaging is clean and beautiful, the product per facial is so generous you’d probably be able to share it with a friend, and the cost is $29US. The feeling when you first apply the Hanacure Facial Mask is cooling, tingly and quite nice, but within


My Skincare Routine | Product Listing

A skincare routine for dry skin!

Skincare Routine for Dry Skin So many people ask me to recommend skincare products to them or look over the products they already use that I just had to do this video. I am not going to tell you these products that I use in the video definitely will work for you, but I find them effective and certainly think it’s worth a shot. Finding products that meet your needs is a lot of trial and error, but if you think your skin problems are beyond help, I always recommend a visit to your local esthetician or dermatologist. My skin type is dry with a tendency towards developing small blackheads on my nose, cheeks, and chin.  I often find that traditional blackhead products dry my skin even further, so I prefer to focus on moisturising, and I save my blackhead treatments for once or twice a week.  Most of these
