• Ole Henrikson Walnut Scrub

    For the longest time I didn’t use a face exfoliator. I don’t know why. Maybe laziness? I just thought of it as a skincare step I didn’t need. But, during the Sephora Appreciation sale, I thought that I may as well pick one up and see if it does anything for my skin. I scoured all of the exfoliators, read all the reviews and landed on the Ole Henrikson Transforming Walnut Scrub.  Today I’ll be talking about my new exfoliator and how I like it.  The Ole Henrikson Walnut Scrub is a cleansing facial scrub. It is formulation with a blend of walnut powder, ginseng, and chamomile extracts. It is meant…

  • Naturally Well Co | Review

    As a beauty blogger I have begun to reach out to brands to see if they would like to collaborate for a review. When it’s a local, Canadian brand it’s even better. I recently reached out to a brand called Natural Well Co (or cynthia_aesthetics on insta) because they looked like they had amazing bath and body products. This is an Etsy shop and can be found here.  The owner of the company was super sweet and we exchanged a few instagram DM’s before she sent me some products. She wanted to make sure I received exactly what I wanted in the scents I wanted. She would respond to my…
