Best of 2017: Makeup - Cheek

Guerlain bronzers were one of my best finds this year. Unfortunately, I'll never get to try the coveted, yet discontinued, #8 terracotta bronzer, but I'll settle for #9. Even if I'm using another bronzer, I add a bit of 4 seasons for contour and blush.

Review: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

Since I changed up my skincare routine almost a year ago, Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is the only cleanser that I have bought more than once.

Product Claims: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is your must-have cleanser and go-to makeup remover. This gel cleanser for all skin types gently washes off every day impurities like dirt and makeup—even mascara—without drying the skin.
