Welcome! I’m Alice, and on my channel, I sort through the makeup/skincare hype and discuss REAL thoughts on products – no first impressions/sucking up involved. I strive to be honest, family-friendly and create content with all demographics in mind!

This video is part of an (extremely long) series in which I trial a brand or theme’s skincare products for two weeks; afterward, I give a review of each product based on my experience, the ingredients, and the cost. I film these bare faced (with the skincare discussed applied) for transparency.
Common Questions/Gripes –
🔹”Are you sponsored?” No, never. I don’t want money from any brand to corrupt what I do here.
🔹”Two weeks isn’t enough time” In my own experience, the changes from week 1 to 2 are often intense, but past that, the EFFECT seems to taper out. YMMV, and some products only show the effect around 6 months (retinol, peptides, etc).
🔹”Can you discuss more studies?” Not really – due to time constraints. I wish I had endless time, and if I did I would offer citations. Unfortunately, I cannot make a thesis out of each video. I apologize!
🔹”Can you tone down the science?” I get this a lot and like the above question – not really. I try to walk the middle ground here, but skincare IS science. It’s tough to separate!
🔹”Should I rely on your review?” These videos are made to share my own experience and general thoughts. For YOUR routine, I always recommend visiting your dermatologist!

– the witch hazel is supposed to de-puff baggy undereyes. I’m still hesitant of this use, but please feel free to comment your thoughts!
Complete and total side note: for those of you curious about individual lashes, this video turned out to be an interesting comparison of with and without lashes! No mascara in either before or after, just individuals!
