I am a college graduate with a BA in psychology & homeland security, currently studying to complete my MS in Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in both addiction and school counseling. In order to put myself through college i have worked in many retail environments. Through working i have learned a ton of tricks and tips for makeup, skincare, and other products. I worked for a few very prestigious companies but prefer not to mention names. In addition, i have a wide array of interests- poetry, the arts, music (and by music, i mean Bruce Springsteen!)
I love my dog, Oreo, and enjoy finding products that are great for her too!
EDIT 11/28/12: I love finding products that are great for my dog, Billy’s skin too- and products that don’t test on animals! Did you know that beagles are the dogs used to test many eye products?! Oreo sadly passed away of old age on April 9, 2012.
I started this blog because i am a product junkie. I am passionate about skincare and education- i believe people should know EXACTLY what they are using on their bodies. I constantly look into products that are methylparabens free and SLS free. Similarly, i prefer products that are made by small businesses over large businesses as a result of having spent so many years in the so-called “ethical” business of cosmetics and skincare/bath body stores. I have acquired a ton of products through working. I will not tell you what you want to hear about products – everything you find here is my own personal opinion.
