Today is no ordinary day. This morning, Victoria Health exclusively launched The Ordinary from DECIEM and to quote their fellow Canadian Drake, nothing was the same (sorry, couldn’t help myself lol). In all seriousness, this is one of the biggest skincare launches in the history of the beauty industry and excited doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel or how important this is, not only to me, but to the industry as a whole.

One of the things I missed most about not sharing my skincare routines on Instagram is the discussions I had with all of you. I missed talking about the products and how and why I used them and getting really helpful feedback and tips. Now that I am getting back into sharing my routines I just had to do a blog post on this one because I’ve done it twice already and each time I can’t get over how much better my skin looks. The star product in the lineup is the Sacred Ground Mineral Mask from MOSS and it’s really what inspired this post because I have so much to say about my experience with it so far. It’s an incredible product and one I think you all need to know about. Since it’s such an involved routine I thought it would be good to fully explain how and why I use each product and what each step entails, so you know exactly what I did and could recreate it yourself. Enjoy! Continue reading →
One of the things I love most about my birthday is the freedom to treat myself all month long (yes all month, hello Leo season!) without feeling guilty and what I unabashedly want most is more skincare. Yep, I love skincare so much that I have multiple categorized (cleansers, toners etc) and ranked (most wanted to casual wants) wish lists dedicated to all the beautiful products I can’t wait to get on my face, and this post is a look at the things I want right now.

One year ago today I started Detail Oriented Beauty (you can see my first post here) as a way to share and document my skincare and green beauty journey and what a journey it has been! I can’t thank you all enough for the constant love, support, friendship, laughter, advice, help and encouragement you have given to me because without it I wouldn’t still be doing this. I always say that the best thing about having my Instagram account and this blog is the connections I’ve made and I have truly loved getting to know each and every one of you in our lovely little skincare community. It has been amazing to talk about and share my love for skincare with you all and I have learned so much in the process and been able to help others in a way that I never had when I was struggling with my skin, which means the world to me. I’ve learned a lot (my skin hates lactic acid but loves niacinamide), discovered a lot (La Belle Lune, Bravura London, NIOD etc) and made a lot of amazing friends (you know who you are!) and I have loved every minute of it, no matter how frustrating it seemed at times.
