REVIEW: Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation in “Ivory”

Since I’m getting married in February, I’ve made it a recent goal of mine to find the best wedding/photograph friendly foundation for the big day. There have been many that have come close, but recently, I decided to try the Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation after reading some reviews. While I can say that most likely this won’t be my big-day-foundation, it did come dangerously close to being picked.

004

The Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation a “long-wear, oil-free foundation for a photo-ready, natural-looking matte finish.” In addition, this foundation features “the same great formula with revamped packaging and a broader shade range” than the previous version of this foundation. It provides “12-hour wear, highly-pigmented formula that blends seamlessly onto skin, hiding even hard-to-cover imperfections. It leaves a flawless finish, making it ideal for video, photography, and special events. Infused with a silk powder blend, it absorbs oil and balances moisture for normal to oily skin. Get smooth skin and visibly even the look of skintone with this long-lasting foundation.”

I have to say that this is a good foundation. It provides a natural-looking finish and is oil-absorbing and non-drying on the skin. For these reasons, it feels light on the skin, conceals redness and pores, and doesn’t feel like foundation on the skin. However, what I didn’t really like about the foundation that it only looked great in the beginning right after application. I felt that this foundation was more full-coverage, but as the day wore on, it got patchy and parts of my face and when I would blot, the foundation that was sitting on my skin would move around. Then, coverage was compromised. I didn’t feel that it was particularly long-wearing because throughout the day it wouldn’t look as good, and even with a good primer and setting primer, the foundation would “lift” in odd places like my forehead.

005

The color match was pretty good. The shade “Ivory” was for “very fair with warm undertones.” The “Rose Ivory” was too pink for me, but it would’ve been better had “Ivory” been slightly on the peachy/pinky side. I’ve read that this foundation has worked great for other people, so take that into consideration. It’s not a bad foundation, but for me, I need something that’s a little bit more reliable. While the search for the most perfect wedding foundation continues, I think this foundation isn’t too bad and I still feel like there will be many people out there who will like this.

REVIEW: Clinique Acne Solutions Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup in “Fresh Alabaster”

I don’t tend to use a whole lot of acne products, and I certainly haven’t used Clinique in about 15 years. However, recently I was in desperate need of some extra moisture for my skin, so I turned to the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin. When I made that purchase, I also got the Clinique Acne Solutions Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup in “Fresh Alabaster” because of MakeupByTiffanyD. I think it’s a great alternative for lightweight liquid foundations that are more expensive, such as the Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup.

001

002

The Clinique Acne Solutions Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup is a “liquid makeup that neutralizes redness and blends away blemishes.” It contains 0.5% Salicylic Acid, which is the component that is used to treat acne. This is a very natural-looking non-irritating, oil-free foundation, and the 0.5% Salicylic Acid helps to control oil for me since I have an oily t-zone. I don’t think that the small amount of 0.5% Salicylic Acid is all that effective in actually treating acne or preventing it, however what’s great about this foundation is that it delivers that second-skin feel without looking heavy or cakey.

I think that despite its lightweight, watery feel to the foundation it provides great coverage and immediately gets rid of pores and tones down redness. The coverage is pretty good and this foundation doesn’t need a setting powder. I looks quite matte at first, but it settles and looks very natural on the skin. It’s also very long-lasting — probably because it’s designed for acne-prone skin, which tends to be much oilier.

003

I don’t think this is the best foundation in the world, and I don’t think it’s going to totally treat acne-prone skin. However, the 0.5% Salicylic Acid does help in controlling oil, it’s long-lasting, and it doesn’t require a setting powder. So, in that aspect, it’s a very low-maintenance product that is travel-friendly and doesn’t break the bank. I would consider using this in the summer months with the heat and humidity are high. If you’ve got major oily skin, then I think this would be a great option year-round since it curbs oil pretty well.

Caolion Premium Hot & Cool Pore Pack Duo

I’m all about masks and pore treatments. Unfortunately, it’s truly difficult to find pore masks that really do the job. I can’t tell you how many times I’m amazed with my pores after a mask session until I look really, really closely…and they’re still clogged up. On a whim, I purchased the Caolion Premium Hot & Cool Pore Pack Duo when Sephora was advertising their Kbeauty stuff. And, I have to say, I’m quite happy with this product and I would definitely recommend it. Right off the bat, it’s pricey because it’s $30.00 and you don’t get a lot of product. That’s a bummer because I think that this mask is quite good.

008

009

The Caolion Premium Hot & Cool Pore Pack Duo is a “detoxifying duo featuring a steaming mask that opens and deeply cleanses pores, then a cooling mask to tighten and minimize the appearance of pores.” It’s a double-decker product with two different masks housed in its own tub. It’s stacked together, which makes using it and traveling with it much easier. The set contains the Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack and the Premium Pore Original Pack. Step 1 is the top layer and step 2 is the bottom layer.

It’s best to use the masks at night after you’ve removed your makeup and cleansed your face. On dry face, I use Step 1 (the black one) and apply it to my nose, chin, and forehead since that’s where my pores are most clogged. There’s small granules in the mask, so you gently massage the targeted areas for about 2 minutes. The granules won’t dissolve and it will feel grainy, like you’re exfoliating. But it doesn’t hurt or feel uncomfortable. The mask will start to cool your face and you’ll feel like a menthol-effect. Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Be careful around your eyes because the cooling sensation will make you eyes irritated and red!

010

After rinsing off Step 1, dry your face again, and immediately apply Step 2 (the gray one). There’s no need to massage this product, so just slap it on and leave it on for about 15 minutes. This product pretty much tightens your pores after you’ve removed the gunk with the first step. Rinse, dry, and apply your nighttime skincare products afterwards. Your skin will feel super soft and smooth, and whiteheads and blackheads have been removed. I will say that the first 2-3 times you use this mask, you’ll see a drastic difference in your pores and the pore size. I felt that the second time I used this mask I saw much better results, and I think it’s because the first round just got the “initial gunk” out and the second round got the rest out lol.

011

012

013

I really recommend this mask duo and it’s a great maintenance product too. However, the set is quite small and won’t last long. For example, you have to use heaping amounts of the products to get the desired effect. Taking out one scoop won’t do; for me, I needed one full finger-scoop for all areas of my face (nose, chin, forehead). I don’t use this on my cheeks, but if I did I would need 5 finger-scoops of each of the masks! When you use this product generously, you’ll run out quickly. I’ve used my set about 4 times now and I’m pretty much done with it. It’s such a shame since the product works well, but you don’t get a lot of use out of it unless you’re only treating your nose. But that wouldn’t make sense to just do your nose. I still recommend it, but for the small amount you get, I feel like this should be half the price.

The set contains:
– 0.7 oz Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack
– 1.05 oz Premium Pore Original Pack

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin

I’m the last person on Earth to have dry skin, but lately, it’s been a strange problem of mine. I live in Texas and the fall/winter season is pretty non-existent. If anything, the weather is cool and nice; but it’s never been to the point where I’ve needed to switch out my moisturizer. I’ve needed something extra to add to my skincare routine during the day time, and because I didn’t want to spend too much money on a new moisturizer, I decided on the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin.

006

The Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin is a “cream-gel that instantly rehydrates for 24 hours while helping fortify and repair skin’s moisture barrier.” It’s super lightweight and smooths onto the skin very easily. I like that even though it’s for drier skin types, it sinks into the skin quickly and doesn’t look or feel oily afterwards. I’ve noticed that even though I have combination skin with an oily t-zone, applying this allows my skin to not feel dehydrated, and the best thing is that I like the extra moisture even when my skin isn’t all that dry feeling.

I haven’t used Clinique in probably 15 years, but I think it’s a good fail-safe option for everyone. I’ve found that with the temperature changing, my skin has been adjusting slowly and it feels more comfortable with something extra. With this, I like how it locks in moisture and allows my skin to feel hydrated and healthy without looking like a grease ball. I don’t like heavy creams, or anything heavy in general on my face. However, this feels nice and absorbs quickly.

007

“This rich, oil-free cream-gel instantly rehydrates. Skin stays comfortably plumped, even 24 hours after you put it on…[and with] daily use [it] helps fortify and repair skin’s moisture barrier to keep moisture in and environmental irritants out. A better barrier means happier skin.” This made a huge difference for me. Before, my skin would feel tight and uncomfortable even after moisturizing and applying primer. My skin would continue to get and feel oily, but the tightness around my mouth and eyes persisted. I finally decided to give this a go because I wasn’t a fan of heavier creams, and everything else I tried left my skin looking SO oily and slippery. I use this in the mornings after I’ve cleansed my face with Cetaphil. I allow just a few minutes for it to fully absorb and apply my sunscreen and foundation afterwards. It’s made a huge difference for me and how my skin feels, so if you’re having the same issues as me I would recommend this!

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC-2

I’m picky about concealers, but for the most part, I don’t really use them to begin with unless I really need it. I’ve tried expensive concealers like the Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer, to the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer from the drugstore. For awhile, I used the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, which has been a longtime favorite of mine. Recently, I decided to abandon regular foundation wear and just use BB/CC creams. However, I got bored of that when I re-gained my love for mineral makeup. While those foundation offer a decent amount of coverage, I kept going more and more minimal.

For my minimal-look, just a setting powder wasn’t enough and didn’t do much for my skintone either. I came across the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer out of curiosity and by total accident. As a “two-shade concealer that can be color-customized to address your tone and imperfections,” this was perfect for what I was trying to achieve.

005

In the mornings, I’ve been applying this concealer around my nose, my chin, and on spots or redness before setting everything with whatever setting powder I have on hand. What I’ve come to realize is that this “customizable concealer naturally and completely covers dark circles, blemishes, scars, minor imperfections, and discolorations with a unique two-shade system,” and is perfect for the lazy girl like myself who just can’t be bothered. I like that “one shade is formulated to match skin’s depth of color, while the other matches skin’s undertone. This dual-shade camouflage makes it possible for everyone to custom-blend her own perfect shade.”

This concealer is very thick, so a little bit goes a long way. Seriously, a swipe of a finger is literally all the product you need. I use that one swipe and dabbed little bits of product onto my face, and the “high-level of pigment requires very little product to achieve perfect coverage that lasts for up to eight hours.” It certainly doesn’t budge because of its waxy texture, so it’s easy to slap on and go without worrying about the product budging or smudging.

I’m using the shade SC-2, which is for fair to light skin tones. The light shade is a perfect match for my skintone, and the salmon shade is perfect for under the eyes. For severe discoloration, mixing the two shades is an amazing way to customize a shade for your skin. In addition, this compact will probably last forever since it takes so little to get the coverage your need. For some like myself, you won’t be using this everyday; however, if you did, you wouldn’t make a dent in this product for a long time — like, probably years LOL. I recommend this and it’s worth the money. If you need concealer and find it annoying to use/but, this is a great deal and great product for the low-maintenance and high-maintenance makeup individuals. :)

REVIEW: Skinvolve Body Boost Gel

I’m not one to spend a lot of money on body products, and most of the time, I find myself too lazy or forgetful to even apply lotion. However, lately I’ve been concerned with body-related concerns like cellulite and things like that. When I was 18, obviously, these concerns didn’t really cross my mind. But now, I find myself being more aware these concerns and I’ve been looking into finding products for these concerns.

017

018

Recently, I was recommend the Skinvolve Body Boost Gel, and I’ve been surprised by results. Now, you have to be realistic with things like this. Obviously, it’s not a miracle product and it doesn’t replace a healthy diet or exercise. The body booster gel is designed to work alongside a proper routine. What I’ve found is that this product is great at ASSISTING.

“Body Boost Gel’s power ingredients rev up the “lipolysis” of your skin cells. Essentially that means, it is the releasing of “fat cells” within your skin to give you tighter, smoother skin, free of lumps and bumps. This works through the stimulating ingredients used and the concentration of each ingredient within our Body Boost Gel. Ginseng, Green Tea, Guarana, Menthol, Aloe Vera, & Vitamins A,B,C,E are our boosting properties that take us to the next level of skin perfection. Massaging into skin alongside daily use and healthy diet are key to see results.”

How to Use:
Apply a spoonful amount and massage into any part of the body until dry, especially stubborn fat areas like lower stomach, back of legs, and booty. You will feel a cooling effect.

019

I like to apply this before I go to yoga. I slather on the gel onto my tummy, butt, and thighs and wait for a bit to dry. You’ll feel a cooling sensation that’s kind of intense…but it’s bearable and doesn’t hurt. After letting it dry, I put on my usual leggings or work out shorts and go to yoga. Afterwards, I rinse off in the shower and apply the gel on again. But I leave it on overnight and let it do its thing. The benefits of this gel is that it claims to fight cellulite, smooths, moisturizes, and tones your skin. I like how my skin feels and it looks and feels nice. Although your existing flaws are still present, it’s less noticeable and you feel like you’re doing something about it — which is always a good thing.

I recommend the Body Boost Gel and it’s great for allowing it to work in a small way.

REVIEW: Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation SPF18

As you know, foundations and base products are always on my radar. I get into moods when I’m really into YSL makeup and sometimes I get into moods where I don’t feel interested in them at all. Lately, I’ve been in the mood for YSL makeup and decided to get the Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation after reading reviews online. To get to the point (lol) I love this foundation and it’s quickly climbed its way to the top of my foundation list. It’s well worth the high price tag and I recommend it for all occasions and all seasons.

008

009

The Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation is a “revolutionary, fine-as-ink foundation with broad spectrum SPF 18 that perfects the skin while it wears weightlessly for 24 hours.” Designed to be long-wear, it’s deceivingly lightweight and completely natural looking on the skin. If you’re one to not wear foundations or you’re just plain afraid of foundations…I’d suggest this one. It’s undetectable on the skin because of its texture; it’s impressive that it provides a skin-like finish and controls oil very well.

The Fusion Ink Foundation is named correctly, lol. It’s very much like ink for the skin. It’s also very watery, so you need to shake it really well before applying. It blends like butter on the skin and disappears into nothing; surprisingly, it provides really great coverage so a little bit of product goes a long way. In addition, when you apply more coverage since the formula is buildable, it doesn’t get thick or cakey on the skin.

“Get all-day comfort, broad spectrum sun protection, and a soft-matte finish with this featherweight foundation that suits every skin type. Its innovative hybrid stain technology provides a lightweight yet high-coverage formula, and its exclusive extendable polymers offer buildable coverage that lasts for a flawless finish.” I’m very impressed with this foundation and I highly recommend it whether you like foundation or not. More importantly, whether you have good skin or not, this foundation will help both and makes the use versatile as well. I’ve worn this for weddings and nights out, but I’ve also worn it to work and on the weekends — just with a lighter hand.

010

I purchased the shade “B10 Porcelain” and I’m quite happy with it. It’s the lightest shade in the range and leans towards a neutral-peach undertone, rather than pink. It matches my skin nicely and blends out seamlessly, which I find to be the most important feature in foundation. I’ve applied this with a buffing brush, a foundation brush, and my fingers. However, I’ve noticed I don’t like how it looks when I’ve used a damp Beauty Blender. I think it’s because it breaks up the natural formulation of the foundation. The best thing about this foundation is the “special sweat and sebum-controlling agents” that allow for 24-hour of coverage and wear. I would never wear makeup for 24 hours, but even on long days (12+ hours), this foundation has held up nicely.

Oil-control is great without the skin feeling or looking dry, and even through humidity, heat, and and sweat, this foundation has looked great. It doesn’t budge and it doesn’t wear off in weird spots like some foundations do. Additionally, the foundation’s “dry oil complex allows it to set in seconds,” which makes application really fast and there’s also no need for a powder since the foundation works well on its own.

011

I love this foundation and it’s one that I reach for every day almost. Even on weekends or when I’m going to an evening yoga class, this foundation doesn’t bother me or make my skin look bad. Even when my skin isn’t doing as well, I find that this foundation helps you cheat a little bit. Because it’s “formulated with pure-micro-coated pigments, it delivers lasting, radiant color, and the face-zoning applicator allows you to perfectly apply it to the face for precise, easy-to-use application that’s never cakey or heavy.” I highly recommend this foundation because it’s well worth the price tag. In fact, if I didn’t have any other foundations to wear and I was left with just this, I wouldn’t even complain. :)

Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in “Lychee Parfait”

In experimenting with some fall colors, I’ve come across Laura Mercier’s Crème Smooth Lip Colour in “Lychee Parfait.” Not straying too far from my usual tones, “Lychee Parfait” is a neutral pink rose that is surprisingly flattering even though it’s not really that pink. The Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colours are “luxurious medium-to-full-coverage lipstick[s] that give lips the ultimate in color, texture, and finish.” It’s smooth and creamy; buildable in intensity, and looks great on the lips.

001

002

I’m new to this range of Laura Mercier lipsticks. However, because my experience with “Lychee Parfait” has been so great, I’m open to looking into other colors like “Peche” and “Antique Pink.” In addition, the formula is really nice and comfortable to wear. It’s not heavy even though it’s a medium to full coverage lipstick; and, it keeps the lips hydrated without looking too glossy or shiny. The texture is smooth even when my lips are feeling dry.

“This cream formula envelops lips in rich color with a semi-lustrous finish that lasts six to eight hours. The cushiony, lightweight texture feels comfortable, while pure olive oil and vitamin E nourish lips. Color glides evenly onto lips without skipping, dragging, feathering, or setting into fine lines. You’ll have the appearance of visibly fuller- and younger-looking lips in just one swipe.”

003

“Lychee Parfait” is a neutral pink rose and it’s a great my lip but better kind of color. It’s great for every day wear, and can be amped up at night if needbe. I like to add a light layer for a more natural look. But I also like to apply it fully with a heavier hand, as it gives my lips a plumped and fuller look. Another minor thing that really does wonder for me is that this lipstick is a fragrance-free formula, which is a nice surprise from the traditional fake-vanilla scent I find in many lip products. Because this isn’t dry, I find it easy to wear and I really recommend this lipstick and this shade!

REVIEW: SK-II Auractivator CC Cream

I’m a sucker for base products and SK-II products and I couldn’t wait to share this post with you. Normally, I’d spread out the base-related posts but I was too excited about the SK-II Auractivator CC Cream. “The new SK-II Auractivator CC Cream is formulated with Day Soft Aura White, to create irresistible glowing skin,” and includes 5 skincare benefits in just one step.

001

002

• Brightening: 40% of whitening ingredients from SK-II’s best-selling
Cellumination Aura Essence, boosts skin’s inner luminosity
• Protection: SPF 50 PA++++ protects skin against future damage from
harmful UVA and UVB rays
• Coverage: The natural tint conceals spots and imperfections for
a flawless finish
• Moisturizing: The light, hydrating formulation glides easily onto
the skin
• Glowing: Iridescent micro pearl pigments instantly improve skin’s
surface glow

003

SK-II claims that their secret ingredient “Day Soft Aura White complex” is part of this CC cream’s greatness. The “Day Soft Aura White complex is composed of UME extract, Niacinamide and concentrated Pitera.” This cc cream is thick in texture, but it’s easily spreadable onto the skin. It blends easily and quickly, taking away redness and blurring pores upon contact. It leaves behind a dewy film that can look greasy soon after, so I tend to powder over my t-zone when I’m wearing this product.

Additionally, the added skincare benefits of SK-II let’s me feel better about just slapping this product on for long flights, traveling, and definitely lazy Sunday’s. Auractivator CC Cream is especially light and glides easily over your skin for even and breathable coverage. I’ve both used both my fingers and a foundation brush to apply this, but honestly, I think it’s faster and better with the fingers. Something about the warmth of your fingers helps this product work better, I think.

004

Because this is a CC cream, it comes in 1 shade. It’s a pretty standard neutral peachy shade that warms up to the skin and blends invisibly. It doesn’t leave a white or gray cast on my skin, but I do feel that it may just be a tad dark. However, because the formula is so blendable it’s pretty much undetectable on the skin. I highly recommend this CC cream; unfortunately, you can’t get it in the US so I’ve ordered a backup online. Remember to use trusted eBay sellers only!

This CC cream is perfection on its own and I find that I prefer it that way. Because it’s designed to color-correct, pigmentation and redness pretty much instantly go away with this product. It provides an even invisible coverage that really lets your skin shine through. In some cases, I’ve worn this underneath mineral powder foundation for additional coverage, but most of the time, I don’t really need it. The finish is dewy, so be aware when attempting to work out after apply this product lol.

REVIEW: Boscia Sake Treatment Water to Hydrate and Brighten

Now that summer is quickly coming to a close with fall upon us, my brain has already decided to plan ahead into the cooler and drier months. While actual cooler weather for Texas is still a few months away, I’ve regardless began to incorporate hydrating products into my skincare routine. Additionally, many of you may already know that I’m a big fan of SK-II products and I find that it’s important to invest in skincare. So between the two, I was excited to see that Boscia had released their new Sake Treatment Water to Hydrate and Brighten. Much like SK-II products, sake is at the heart of this treatment water so I was curious about how it would compare.

As an “innovative, sake-infused, Treatment Water that hydrates, brightens, and preps the skin for maximum absorption of treatments, serums, and moisturizers,” this is a great first-step in my skincare routine. For now, I’m not using typical toners per se; instead, I’m using the Boscia Sake Treatment Water to prep my skin after cleansing both morning and night. This “Sake Treatment Water allows for greater absorption of skincare products. It is rich in vitamins and minerals that deliver powerful hydration and brightening benefits to the skin. Formulated with the finest sake grade to deliver powerful hydration and brightening benefits to skin, it works to revive the skintone and texture while it primes the skin.”

005

The use of this product is much like the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence in that you pump the liquid into your hands and press it directly onto the face. As you gently press the product into the skin, you are to massage onto the skin to activate formula for instant hydration and a brighter complexion. You can use a cotton pad, but it’s probably not a good idea since you can waste so much product like that. Occasionally, I’ll pump a little onto a thin cotton pad and place it on a specific trouble area (like a breakout) if my skin really needs it.

I really like this treatment water and I really enjoy starting off my skincare routine with this product. It’s non-drying and doesn’t leave a slippery feeling on the skin like some toners do. I like that the ingredients are all essential for good skin, such as: sake, which is “highly-rich in vitamins and minerals to provide powerful hydration and brightening benefits.” Additionally, ingredients like vitamin B3 and Sodium Hyaluronate “revives skin’s healthy tone and texture to prime skin for greater absorption of products,” and “hydrates as it penetrates skin and supports the skin’s ability to attract and maintain moisture” respectively. And, finally, “Jojoba Leaf helps to prevent free radical damage while nourishing the skin.”

006

I use this product as instructed morning and night before my skincare routine begins. My skin looks bright and healthy even before I carry onto applying serums and creams. More importantly, it doesn’t interfere with my original routine and I do feel that it has made a positive and effective impact on how my routine unfolds. There is pretty much no smell to the product and feels very much like water, just a little thicker in consistency. It absorbs nicely into the skin without drying out the skin. My skin is nicely prepped before moving onto other steps, so I feel that it’s made a huge difference in my skin such as pore sizes and redness. When I do have a minor breakout, I concentrate the product onto those areas and the trouble spots seem less irritated and red.

I can’t say that this product can replace SK-II, but it comes very closely to being effective for a cheaper price. However, it’s still expensive for what it is because it’s $46.00 USD for 1.85 oz. Also, since I feel that I will be going through the product quickly because I use it day and night and as a treatment product, it’s not really that cost-effective. If you want to compare it to SK-II, however, it still comes out to be cheaper so that may be a selling point for some. For example, even if you double the amount (2 bottles = 3.7 oz.) of the Boscia Sake Treatment Water to Hydrate and Brighten at $46.00 each, you’ll be at $92.00 before taxes. This is still cheaper than 2.5 oz. bottle of SK-II for $105.00 before taxes. I still recommend the Boscia treatment water, so if you’re looking for something that’s sake-related, give this a go. Next on my list is the Sake Balm, which has been on my radar so check back for that!
