5 Clean Skincare Products You Have To Try

Why would you buy products made with potentially harmful chemicals when there are plenty of clean products that work just as well or even better?

5 Clean Skincare Products You Have To Try

The United States hasn't passed comprehensive cosmetic reform in almost 80 years. As a result of this, many beauty products contain confirmed carcinogens as well as other harmful chemicals and possible irritants. For those of us who use many self care products, it's hard to determine what's safe to put on our bodies. All of these products are free from hazardous ingredients, and actually work!

Pacifica's Face Wash


I've tried this face wash in both the coconut milk formula and the kale detox formula and they're both amazing, especially for sensitive skin. The coconut milk wash is moisturizing but not heavy, and the kale wash is light and not stripping! Both formulas are sold on Pacifica's website, Ulta, and on Amazon.

The Ordinary's Niacinamide


I'm far from the first person to recommend this, but niacinamide is a game-changer for oily, acne-prone skin. I buy bottles of this months in advance so I know I'll never run out because it's that good. Run don't walk!

The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid


I usually only moisturize with rosehip oil (yes, even though I have oily skin), but in the winter when I feel like my skin needs more moisture, I use this twice a day and its fantastic. It's definitely moisturizing without clogging your pores or feeling too heavy.

Bolden's Clear Skin Clay Mask


This face mask is great for acne-prone skin! It's cleansing but doesn't leave your face feeling dry at all. Bolden is a black owned brand, and the formula is made with darker skin tones in mind, but it works for all skin tones! I have light skin and this mask is one of my go-to's.

The Ordinary's AHA and BHA Mask


This peeling solution is intense, so if you have highly sensitive skin I might recommend against it. However, for anyone concerned about acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, this mask is amazing. You can apply it to your face (avoiding your eye area) and leave it on for no more than 10 minutes (but I try to wash it off after about 7). After using this regularly for several months I've definitely noticed a difference.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
