For the last ten years, I have been a part of the video game industry — working on titles like STAR WARS: The Old Republic, Marvel Heroes, and more recently League of Legends. Over that time, I struggled with skin issues and became a regular contributor in skincare and beauty-centric communities, such as MakeupAlley and Reddit, in my spare time.

I recently left my job for my own mental health and began exploring sharing my long-time passion of beauty and skincare with others. I’ve invested countless hours in researching and understanding the science behind skincare, and I want to teach others what I’ve learned so that they can have a better understanding of their own skin.

Together, we can embark on a journey to change what people see in the mirror. As someone who has suffered severe mental illness, I know how painful it can be to not be greeted by a reflection of who you feel like on the inside.

Let’s change that. Your support means I can keep doing what I want to do: writing content multiple times a week here on, buying new products to give you honest reviews, paying for my web hosting, and buying new equipment so I can create content in more ways than one.

Thank you so much!

– Kristen
