Medicine cabinet replenished with some (actually good) new stuff
In the beauty world, flashy new products come around so often; anyone who’s done their fair share of test-driving knows that things are best approached with a little reservation. Some that show promise at first may end up falling short of the hype, for example. On the flipside, there are those downplayed beauty finds that deliver amazing results.
As tempting as the idea of scoring a total beauty upgrade is, there’s really no saying that the slather will 100% be worth the spend. Besides, loyalty to a routine that already works has its merits…and implies that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Alas, sometimes, it does pay to make a little room on that beauty counter. Especially when it means bagging a truly worthwhile new addition. It’s only mid-March, but on this, the verdict is in. We’ve actually met a two-in-one conditioning cream that made us, skeptics of multi-tasking personal care products, praise something from the category. Then there’s the elaborate three-pack sheet mask combo we’re certain is the closest we’ve ever gotten to well-rested skin in a flash.
