[Etsy Product Review] Paper and Slate Candles

Photo credit to Paper & Slate Candles Etsy Store

At the beginning of 2018 one of my favorite content creators started an Etsy shop called Paper and Slate Candles. Mary Kate Wiles, the owner, hand pours each candle and wax melt in LA. But these aren't just candles with amazing scents. They are candles inspired by the characters from shows Wiles has been in. She has three different sets of characters. One set, three candles, is based on the Bennet sisters from the "Lizzie Bennet Diaries," a web series/fictional vlog based on Pride and Prejudice. One set, four candles, is based on the characters from "Edgar Allen Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party," a web series starring literary characters (produced by Shipwrecked Comedy). The newest set, four candles, is based on "The Case of the Gilded Lily," a film noir short also produced by Shipwrecked Comedy.

The candles themselves are 8 ounces but are mighty. They last for a long time. I usually burn mine for a couple hours at a time throughout the week and about a month to completely burn through one. As I mentioned, the scents are amazing-they fill up the room in refreshing way. I've used the Lizzie Bennet candle, which is scented with teakwood, and the Lenore candle, which is rose and cedar, and both are wonderful. My next candle is the Ford Phillips, which is tobacco and rain. I'm really looking forward to it.

Additionally, the artwork on the jars is delightful. I've cleaned out one of the glass jars and am using it to store small, easily lost things. I don't plan on getting rid of any other jars in the future.

The best part of Paper and Slate candles, though, is that it allows me to support a creator who's work I genuinely enjoy! You can find Paper and Slate on Etsy, Instagram, and Twitter.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
