This post is pretty exciting for me to finally be writing! I’ve been trying out a new skincare tool (for those that don’t know I did an entire series on the Clarisonic in the past!) & it really is a bargain. For the longest time I’ve wanted a Foreo Luna but was never able to get my hands on one & justify the cost.

Like many of the posts up for this time of year I’m complaining about dry skin. Much like oily skin, it makes apply makeup & keeping it looking great harder than necessary. I’m constantly on the search for better products to perfect my skin both in photographs & in real life.
