    Belle, what are your thoughts on Drunk Elephant in general? I’m hearing a lot of buzz but not sure how much of it is just marketing – I trust your review!

      A complete stranger’s take, fwiw: I am a DE convert. My skin is more even, less red and has fewer breakouts since using the line for the last 2 months. I’m in my late 3os with oily, acne prone skin I’ve been at war with since I was 12. I still use my prescription retinoid as well, but I was using that before DE so the change is definitely from the new products. I highly recommend trying the ‘littles’ set on their website which lets you try the entire line with generous sample sizes.

    I rolled my eyes so much at all these college “rules”…until I remembered that my college didn’t admit undergraduate women at all until the 1970s. Sigh.

    I am a HUGE Make-up Geek fan and I have about 20 of their eyeshadows, 3 blushes and a number of their brushes. Amazing price for fantastic products. i also own 4 Wayne Goss brushes and they are amazing!

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.
