Image is a cartoon still from beauty and the beast. The character Belle is shown making a derisive face and she has hipster glasses photoshopped onto her face. The picture meme reads: Be your guest? Unlikely.I’ve noticed I’m discerning, but we all think we are, right? In my case I have some particulars that may be a little less mainstream. Hipster bloggers unite? Anyway, it’s helpful to know these because when I review, they’re all taken into consideration. And because my situation is not typical (I have a significant disability), you may need to disregard some of my observations that do not apply to you. I believe there are people out there with the same issues as I have, and because few people reviewing cosmetics have these exact concerns my special considerations will be very helpful to other people like me. Maybe that’s you! Read more…

Image is a photo of a white-skinned female model of unknown ethnicity with short, white-blonde straight hair. She is making a neutral expression.Remember: bleach can be dangerous. The only way to know how your scalp and hair will react is to try things out on your own body/head/hair, but don’t sacrifice your safety. Testing your personal reactions can be done smartly. To do this responsibly like a real adult, consider performing a strand test.
 
What this entails is choosing a tiny portion of your hair no one will see (behind your ear is a good spot) and trying the bleach there first before you do a large amount of your hair. It’s the only reliable way to know if you’re allergic, if your scalp will burn, if your hair will survive, and what color it will turn out to be, and it’s also a good idea if you’ve done things to your hair already (coloring, perming, relaxing).

image is a picture of actress Emilia Clarke playing Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. She is white blonde, and has a pensive or inquisitive look.Change is fun. It’s exciting and adventurous experimenting with your looks, imagining yourself in a new light, and then making that into reality. It’s somewhat less exciting if all of your hair falls out and you burn your freaking scalp. Here’s why people write guides.
 
With my guide you will need to spend somewhere between 30 and 55 US dollars. I’ll be including links so you can see examples but if you want to find cheaper products you probably can. Truly frugal and clever people could probably do this bleaching stuff for about $20. If you’re a first-timer there’s no shame in spending slightly more for now so you can do it right, though. Pick the option that’s right for you and keep in mind that some of these are one-time costs for shit like bowls. Also you will likely have enough product for bleaching more hair or retouching your roots for 1-2 years. When I started I literally could not believe how cheap these products were. Read more…

Image is a photo of the packaging of the Bihada Sizuku sheet mask. There is an image of an aloe vera plant set upon a black background and the words Sizuku Natural Pulp Essence Face Mask in the center.I love sheet masks. They’re soothing, relaxing, fun, and I feel like a Sheet Princess with one of these on. A lot of them are rather great for improving dumb skin and maintaining good skin, and there are a lot of great ones for low cost. I typically enjoy wearing the moisturizing types and leaving them on while I watch 1-hour-long shows like K-Dramas or Doctor Who. Most packages recommend 20-30 mins but I find that with moisturizing products there’s no harm in keeping them on longer and I just like going to my happy place as I watch a show in Sheet Princess mode.
