Sensitive Skin Care with Aubrey Organics

There are a lot of products and items that come across my desk. A lot of them are actually really great items, and those are the ones I post about the most. Once in a great while, there’s something that is truly abysmal, and I don’t usually share those. That doesn’t happen too often, luckily. Occasionally, there’s something that just rocks my world, and I’ll keep buying it. I’m sharing about one of those types of lines today.

I’ve mentioned it before, but my parents were kind of hippies. In today’s world, they’d be called crunchy. They built their own house (with their own hands), chopped wood, had a goat for milk and grew a lot of our food. I had no idea that not everyone shopped at health food stores or baked their own bread. What chu talkin’ bout with this store bought bread stuff?

IT Palette – Color Spectrum Review

sephora-it-palette-650

Today, I’m swatching the IT Palette – Color Spectrum from Sephora. I’ve had this palette for a while, as I bought it last summer when it was on sale at my local store. As of this post, it’s still available on the Sephora site. I have a problem. It’s a problem that I’m sure many of you have as well. I buy makeup, then never seem to do anything with it. Perhaps it’s that I get something that I’m more enthused about. Or I don’t want to disturb the colors in the new palette. Whatever it is, I need to get over it.
