Treatments (Eye) -SkinMedica - TNS Eye Repair

on 2/22/2017 3:22:00 AM

I've used a lot of eye creams over the years and felt like i could actually see that this made my under eye area look more moisturized and brighter. I'm on my second jar. The cream itself is thick and easy to spread.

I don't love the jar packaging. I also found using the spatula that came with it resulted in too much product being wasted because too much product gets onto the spatula. So now I just dip my finger into the jar...which might not be that sanitary but better than wasting product.

The instructions say to avoid the eyelids. I don't know if this is for legal reasons because they didn't test it on eyelids or if some people had bad reactions. Anyway, I put it on my brow bone and on the inner corner and then a bit on my eyelid and have no problems. I probably use too much sometimes but haven't noticed any puffiness from it.

The only thing I have noticed is that compared to my previous eye cream that this one sometimes balls up under my sunscreen during the day. I'm not sure why this happens and why it only happens sometimes.

Also, I typically can't use silicones and end up with milia. This has one silicone ingredient and I haven't had any new milia.


Moisturizers -Hada Labo - Gokujyun Perfect Gel

I have combination skin. Normal at the sides and oily at t zone. When i first started using it, it was moitsurizing.. but after a few times of using it, i start to have clogged pores, which never happened before in the past.

I tried not to waste it and put it on my legs, but even my legs have tiny bumpbs after just 1 time application. So i tossed it..


Toners -Hada Labo - Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion

It was good for me, initially. As mentioned by other reviewer, it hydrates skin and my skin feels smooth after application. However.. after about 5 to 6 months of using it, i start to have blackheads/whitehead on my forehead area.. and ot just gets more and more + bigger in size. I am not sure why but i cant use it anymore :(


Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara

Of the countless mascara brands I have tried over the years, this is the best every day brand. It separates and makes lashes look soft and natural like no other. I always go back to it. It is buildable, though far from dramatic. When I want dramatic I go to my fiber lash brand instead. The Full & Soft actually makes a better base to my Younique fiber mascara than the one they use. It leaves your lashes looking softer if you use as a base for their fibers.


Blush -Giorgio Armani - Cheek Fabric #305 Dolci

I read about it on Beautypedia and I decided to give it a try. I ordered it online (Selfridges) in the color 507. Once it arrived I unpacked quickly in excitement. I took my hakuhodo J110 and OMG just one light sweep and the brush was loaded with color. Not just that my cheek never looked this way since I graduated from college ..healthy glow like it is from within. All natural and not like some other blusher which gives you this artificial fake glow and color if you by mistake overdone. They also raved about Chanel le blush creme which I also tried but this one truly knocked that out of the water and exceeded all expectations. And of course I will purchase it again and again it is now my HG blusher. seriously it worth every penny.


Foundations -L'Oreal - Infallible Total Coverage

I love this foundation so much! For me it stayed on perfectly for hours and I did not have to redo my powder for hours which is so rare for me. In the winter I have quite dry, acne prone skin and this didn't break me out at all and nor does it cling to any dry patches. I bought the porcelain shade which is perfect for my very pale skin, I find it so hard to buy drug store brands light enough unless I'm wearing fake tan. I really don't understand what's with the bad reviews! Each to their own I suppose. The packaging could be a bit nicer but I bought it as part of a deal for 2 for £12. I prefer it so much better than the L'oreal Infallible 24 hours. I wish that it would have smoothed out my old acne scars a bit more but I have yet to find a foundation that does. Other than that, it covers any redness or blemishes easily and it feels weightless on my skin. I adore it and will definitely be buying it when I run out.


Treatments (Face) -Dermalogica - Gentle Cream Exfoliant

foto

I like that this product leaves my skin with a glow and is not too drying. I use it twice a week and it helps clear pores/blemishes and leaves my skin looking more even/smooth. I find all Dermalogica products are expensive but that would be my only gripe really. You don't need a lot though so it does last. Make sure you don't leave it on past the recommended time or use it near your eye as it can irritate if you do!


Liquid -Clinique - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

Meh. I got a sample of this at the Clinique counter. I don't even know why I bother to try Clinique foundations anymore. They just don't come in the shades and formulas that agree with my skin. I often find that break my skin out or that the color palettes are just odd. In this case the SA gave me a sample in Linen. It looked ashy on my skin for an hour or two and then turned a bit orangish. It's very thick and unnatural looking on my mature skin and it felt tacky forever. I pitched it and never looked back.


Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

Amazing for those who have combo/normal/dry skin. Something about it that just gives a glow from within!
Medium coverage, buildable.
NC 25-30 skin tone No 53 was a perfect match - oxidises a bit to match

Foundations -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

I came across this stick foundation a few months ago and I was really excited about trying it out because I travel fairly frequently, but alas it wasn't meant to be. It's a fantastic idea and I can see that it's a wonderful product if you don't have dehydrated skin like I do. Unfortunately I use Retin A on a fairly regular basis and it dries out my complexion and this makeup really emphasized the dryness and flakiness despite moisturizing first and using a serum. It just looks caked up and heavy on my skin and it emphasizes the dry areas around my nose and mouth. Also I couldn't find a good color match on it. Ivory 140 came close but it was a little too pale for my complexion and Buff 210 gave my skin a ghostly greenish tinge that was really unflattering. It's really a shame because this is a perfect makeup for travel and for touch ups during the day. I'll stick to my Renergie Lift foundation for the time being. But if I could find a better color match and prep my skin so that it's dewier I would definitely give this foundation another try.
