Review: Alba Botanica Good and Clean Cleanser

Hey guys!
So about a month ago I was looking for a new facial cleanser because I became really unhappy with the one I had from Burts Bees. I really love Burts Bees, but they changed a lot of their formulas, and my face wash was just not working anymore. My pores felt really clogged, and my face just wasn't getting clean. So, I went to Target with no product in mind really, and this one caught my eye.

I had never heard of this brand before, but I looked it up and saw that a lot of people love it, and specifically, this face wash. They don't test on animals, and they use natural ingredients that still allows this product to gently cleanse sensitive skin which is exactly what I needed. I really wanted something that would cleanse my face and leave my pores feeling nice and clean, but isn't too harsh that would cause my skin to break out into a rash. I love my skin, but boy do I have to be extra careful with it! Even sunscreen gives me rashes, which can be quite annoying in the summer.
This face wash smells ah-mazing as well, and really leaves my skin feeling refreshed! I use it once a day when I take my shower in the late afternoon/night, and then I follow up with my F.A.B. face lotion. I only wash my face once a day because it is super sensitive and pretty dry, so I really don't need to in the mornings - I just put on some lotion and BB cream and I'm good to go. I have noticed that since I've been using this product, my skin has been glowing in the mornings, and it has fixed all of the issues my previous face wash caused. I am very pleased with this product, and I definitely recommend it for all skin types! It has become my new favorite facial cleanser.

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a great rest of your day! (:

Review: Essie Quick-e Drying Drops

Hey guys!
Last week, I bought the Quick-e Drying Drops from Essie, and I've been dying to post this review! I had planned on posting it last week but I got super busy and then  really sick, but finally here it is!

The bottle itself looks like a normal Essie one, however it comes with a little dropper which allows you to place little drops onto your nails wherever needed. 
I went through my normal nail polish routine, painting my nails with Essie's "muchi muchi", and used the drying drops after I applied the top coat to all of my nails. They dried within a couple of minutes, which made it a lot more convenient since I painted them at night.

 Overall, I'm really satisfied with how my nails turned out since they dried so quickly, and I'm very glad I bought this product - I highly recommend it! If you're someone who paints their nails at night like me, or before you're going to be doing a lot with your hands, you should definitely think about buying this. However, your nails can still get dents or little marks on them from things like sheets, so just be careful with your nails like usual!
I will be using this product a lot in the future, and especially for Prom this weekend! I'll be posting a ton of pictures on either Sunday or Monday from Prom, so be on the look out for that! (:

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a great day! (:
