Acure Brightening Facial Scrub (Exfoliator)

acure-brightening-facial-scrubAcure Facial Scrub

My skin with #nomakeup + #nofilter + flash 😳 My skin is not perfect. I obviously have some red spots, discoloration, and SUPER DRY skin. However, I’ve been loving this exfoliator because it’s been so helpful in cleaning off the dry, dead skin cells, plus of course #crueltyfree & #vegan . Since it’s colder out here in #NYC , Ive had to exfoliate less (from 5 days a week to about 2-3), so I might use it in combination with a gentler exfoliator to continue to exfoliate every day bc that’s what I think helps my skin the most (this one is pretty coarse/rough). I still love it though, it’s definitely kept my skin matte and clear overall.

8/10 – recommended for people with dry/combination skin like me!

Sunset Bagels in Brooklyn, NY! So many delicious vegan options!

So my husband and I have recently discovered this place, and it has been our go-to for random lunches and snacking (because we love snacks).

These are actually some of the best bagels we’ve had and they have a lot of vegan options as well. If you’re in NYC we definitely recommend going to this place for awesome food. I’ve also had their veggie supreme burger (without cheese) with their waffle fries and it was absolutely delicious and filling. They also deliver via seamless ! The only negative is that they are very slow in terms of giving you your food after you order. I usually have to wait like 10 minutes or more until I get my 2 bagels. To me, it’s not a big deal and it’s definitely worth it!
