I used to think my skin just didn’t like foundation. I have some dry patches and no matter what hydrating primer I used, you could still see texture and I hated it. That is until I realized I’m all about the medium-coverage, CC cream-like formulas I can layer on without looking cakey. So, when I heard Sephora Collection was launching Best Skin Ever Foundation, I knew I had to do a review. I figured, anything with skin in the name is going to be right up my alley and it turns out, I was right.
Best Skin Ever Liquid Foundation is Sephora Collection‘s latest launch, a luxe foundation without the luxe price tag. The medium-coverage, natural-finish foundation has a long-wearing formula with skincare benefits. It has red algae extract for hydration, hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and even brown algae extract, which the brand says helps shield skin from pollution.

There are a whopping 51 shades taking into account undertones so you’re sure to find a few that work for you. I chose 15.5N, a light shade with neutral undertones. I prepped my face with moisturizer and decided to skip primer to see how the formula would sit on my skin. My goal? To even out my skin tone and tone down my dark circles (it’s been a tough year), but not completely cover my freckles. Especially now, I just want to look like a more improved version of myself.
I applied the foundation with my fingers, which is often how I prefer using a lightweight foundation. It went on smoothly and I used a makeup sponge to blend under my eyes and around any discoloration.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easily the formula melted into my skin. When I added a little more around my dark circles, it didn’t ball up or become cakey. Plus, it felt natural and not too dewy. I didn’t even need powder. Even without concealer, I felt a lot more confident to go on with my day of Zoom calls. I can see myself wearing Best Skin Ever now during quarantine as well as when I finally go out and see people in the real world. A little concealer, mascara and blush and I’m good to go.
Want to try it yourself? It has five stars on Sephora’s website already so it seems I’m not the only fan. Best Skin Ever just launched so grab your shade now.

How To Keep Your Car’s Interior Spotlessly Clean
Most of us have a habit of taking our cars/vehicles to the carwash whenever it seems/feels dirty. Although the carwash might be efficient in cleaning your car’s exterior, it certainly doesn’t with your interior. You can, however, take up the responsibility to keep your car clean by cleaning it every once in a while. Most people have a weekly cleaning routine for their homes and even their car’s exterior; why not do the same for the interior.
Under normal circumstances, your car is more likely to get dirty faster than your home. Aside from snacking and food particles falling all over the car, your dirty shoes will always soil the carpet and other parts under them. While vacuuming may help remove most of the dirt, it certainly doesn’t deep clean the carpets and seat undersides. The only way to keep it clean is to take your time to clean it as often as possible.
According to experts, you should clean your car at least once every month. Christian Newman, the owner of C&J Automotive Detailing, notes that those who have a habit of snacking while driving and dogs/pets in the car should clean the car every other week. There’s thus a good chance you aren’t cleaning your car enough. Below are a few simple tips and steps from Mr Car Mats to keeping your car clean and hygienic.
- Vacuum Everywhere
Although most of us will only vacuum the carpets, doing so pushes dirt and dust onto other parts, such as the seats, dashboard, and compartments. One way to prevent this is to vacuum every inch of the car’s interior. Start with the door panels, dashboard, and console, then finish with the carpets. Be sure to use a strong enough vacuum cleaner for the best results.
- Open And Clean the Door Area
The door jamb is one of the most neglected areas in a car. While this may be the first part you will set your eyes on before getting in or out of the car, most people hardly vacuum or clean it. This could be because it requires a little more effort and attention. Nonetheless, use a cotton cloth or swab to polish the area mildly to remove any dirt trapped within. Consider oiling it to keep it moist too. Get more done with these tips.
- Use Vinyl Cleaner To Clean The Vinyl
The vinyl cleaner will come in handy in removing dirt from dusty or fingerprint-smudged dashboards and door insides. Start by wiping the dust off using a cotton cloth, then a microfiber cloth dabbed in the vinyl cleaner to wipe down any remaining dirt. Be sure to clean every part of the dashboard and the door, especially door pockets. Vacuum and declutter the door pockets first before doing this. Do not use the vinyl cleaner on the steering wheel.
- Wash And Wipe Down the Windows
Dirt and dust may collect on your windows too. You should be able to notice the dirt when rolling the windows down. Giving the windows a good clean and then wiping them with a microfiber cloth can help remove any remaining dirt. Be sure to wipe the mirrors and door handles as well.
9 Ways To Create The World’s Most Relaxing Bath
You’ve been busy all week, so what better way to energize yourself and recharge than by planning some Sunday me-time? It’s important to find a way to ease your stress and calm your worries, which is why a relaxing bath is just the cure! Turn your personal master bathroom into your own in-home spa with the following tips:
- Compile Your Bath Essentials
In order to make the most of your relaxing bath, you will need to compile all of the essentials such as scented candles, your favorite book, essential oils, and a block of luxurious bath soap. You can easily transform your bath water into swirling decadent honey by adding some Creme Brulee by Laura Mercier. For the ultimate relaxing experience try bath bombs from CBDSupplyUK.co.uk.
- Drop Some Scented Oils
Give your bath an even more relaxing effect by dispensing some scented rose or lavender oils when your bath is half full. A great product I highly recommend trying is Nicolas Malleville’s Coqui Coqui which is an all-natural bathing oil that adds a touch of luxury.
- Choose The Right Temperature
It’s important to make sure your bath is neither too hot nor too cold. You want to relax, but using water that’s scalding will make you feel dizzy, which is the opposite of what we want to achieve.
- Choose Relaxing Music And Light Candles
There are some fantastic playlists readily available on Spotify to make your bath more relaxing. Try searching for terms such as calm, easy listening, or relaxing.
- Bring Indulgent Snacks
I personally prefer to sip chamomile or green tea, but bringing any kind of indulgent snack with you can help you unwind. For example, your favorite box of chocolate desserts and a good quality wine can help you blow off steam. Leave your snacks within reach, but don’t bring them too close to the tub where you may accidentally submerge them.
- Tie Up Your Hair And Try A Face Mask
Nothing says spa-like tying up your long hair and letting yourself experience a moisturizing face mask. Personally, I highly recommend the masks by Glam Glow as they offer some high-quality products.
- Opt For Plush Towels And A Terry Bathrobe
Plush absorbent towels are the way to pamper yourself when getting out of your bath! Consider leaving your towel on or near your heater to make it warm while you’re in the bath. It’s also a good idea to keep a terry cloth bathrobe nearby or your pajamas ready to go when you get out of the tub.
- Let Yourself Relax!
The point of this bath is to give yourself the adequate me-time that you deserve. Do something you love such as munching on chocolates, reading a book, flipping through your favorite magazine, or just calmly listening to music.
- Take A Nap
After you’re out of your bath, why not keep the relaxation going by taking a short nap? Keep playing relaxing music and lay down to enjoy whatever is left of your day. You may even wish to warm a towel in the microwave to keep wrapped around your neck for comfort.
