REVIEW: Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque
Kaitlyn Elisabeth Beauty
Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn Elisabeth Beauty: "When I see results from a face mask immediately, it urges me to up my masking game. The Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque ($60) is one of those masks. This mask contains charcoal, one of the hottest skincare ingredients in the past year. It draws out the impurities from your skin, such as dirt, oil and environmental pollutants."

OOTD: 'Lace & Frills'
Allure Of Simplicity
Aney, Allure Of Simplicity: "There's nothing I love more than a feminine combination — and this top sold me the second I saw the lace and frill design. It's such a delicate piece that exudes a beautiful vintage parisian feel. I went for a more casual look, but it can easily be dressed up with a flowy pleated midi skirt or a pair of blush-beige culottes." Find out more about Aney's outfit, here.
