Treatments (Face) -Estée Lauder -Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

I have used this over 16 years. I initially reached out for a serum which would help shrink my pores and it worked wonderfully then. But as the years went by the serum seem to have lost its touch.

I continue using and repurchasing it because I have become accustomed to using it over the many years but I am not able to say that it is actually doing anything anymore. My pores have grown bigger and my complexion is not even.

In my country, this item has been running out of stock for some time and I went 2 months without it..didn’t make a difference though

Moisturizers -Yves Rocher -Hydra Vegetal gel creme 24h intense hydrating gel cream

on 4/19/2019 6:45:00 AM

My skin is almost normal except the times my Eczema relapses and changes it to superdry,sensitive,red and flakey.I bought this product when I was in one of my healthy,normal skin periods.as spring began,all of my rich,suitable for dry to very dry moisturizers felt too heavy and I bought Yves Rocher Hydra Végétal 24H Intense Hydrating Gel Cream on a whim,just because I knew the brand,it was written on it that it's for normal to combination skin and that it wasn't expensive(7.5 USD).I didn't want to pay much for my normal skin moisturizer as I suffer from Eczema 80% of the year and there are very short periods that my skin behaves.
It says on it's packaging that this formula contains more than 85% ingredients from natural origin.it's colorant free,mineral oil free and paraben free..it also says: "our Botanical Beauty researchers have selected Maple and Blue Agave Saps combined with Botanical Betaine for their ability to moisture capture.as a result,they lock in a water supply deep inside the skin.perfectly hydrated throughout the day,your skin recovers it's freshness.it is visibly plumped and beautifully radiant" instructions to use is: apply it's fresh and light texture morning and evening on entire face

Now lets start the review
I LOVE this cream! and I never expected to love it as it's not as expensive and hyped as the other moisturizers I usually use.it's what I wanted Clinique Moisture Surge to be and it wasn't
If you want a fragrance free moisturizer skip this one as it has perfume.when I first applied it I was scared that It's fragrance may irritate my almost sensitive skin but fortunately it never happened.there was no redness,sting or irritation.I'm a perfume junkie and this is a fresh,soothing scent so I don't have any problem with it until it doesn't cause break outs.and yes,it didn't clog my pores and didn't cause any pimles(eventhough I usually have super dry skin,it's also prone to tiny acne and blackhead and whiteheads,I have the best of both worlds :/ )
first days that I used it I wasn't so existing to see how radient,smooth and plumped my skin looks.I thought it's just silicone's temporary effect but gradually I started to see that it's really hydrating my skin.even relatives and friends had noticed a dramatic change in my skin,I even received complements like:you're skin looks so healthy and glowy,are you on a special diet?
If you'd like your moisturizer to completely absorb in a minute you may not like this one.It doesn't feel heavy or sticky on skin,not at all,but leaves a dewy,but not oily layer on skin for hours.I applied it every night and whenever I wokeup my skin was soft and hydrated.no dry patches.at the time that I used it there was no signs of Eczema but silly me traveled without it and had to buy another moisturizer which broke me out after a single use and my Eczema started.now that my skin is superdry and flakey,this Yves Rocher gel cream doesn't do the job anymore.I have to use lipid replenishing rich creams but whenever my Eczema calms down,I will definitely go back to my beloved Yves Rocher Hydra Végétal Gel Cream as this one paired with Yves Rocher Nutritive Ultra Rich Velvet Face Wash made my skin look at it's best
I haven't tried it as a makeup base many times but few times that I used it with Yves Rocher Zero Default Comfort Cream Foundation,it performed well.foundation blended on it smoothly as if it was a primer
The only CONs I can think of is that it comes in a jar,even though it's an elegant,good looking glass jar it's not hygienic.however I solved that by using plastic spatulas instead of putting my finger inside it
The above photo seems to be the older packaging.I uploaded pics of how it looks like nowadays.it says on it's packaging that it's made of recyclable glass jar and it's cardboard is from sustainably managed forests which is another plus
This moisturizer deserves being more popular.recommended if you're skin isn't extremely dry or extremely oily

Lotions/ Creams -Soap & Glory -Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Buttercream

An absolute dream for dry skin, rich, nourishing and the fastest absorbing 'body butter' I've tried. The smell is VERY gourmand so beware if you dislike creamy/caramel/nutty scents.

Deodorants -Unlisted Brand -Dry Idea Roll-On Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant

on 4/19/2019 3:45:00 AM

In love with Dry Idea. Rolls on great, you DO NOT hold it upside down to apply, smells so subtle and clean and dry, dry, dry all day. Finally, MY deodorant. But in my sad case I wound up with RASH, RASH, RASH. Sooo disappointed. I tried it three different times just to see. I’m on the third try and my underarms are burning and itchy after 3 days, so that’s it for good. The first time I actually wound up with open sores. Yes I know, why try over n over—because it was that good. I wish they’d remove whatever the horrible chemical is.


Lipstick -Kat Von D -Studded Kiss Lipstick - Lolita

I am really enjoying the Studded kiss lipsticks.
They have a good wear time, they feel nice on the lips and do not dry out my lips.
I really like the Shade Lolita (satin-matte chestnut rose).
It is a great everyday shade that works well for just about any occasion.
On most days I like to tap it onto my lips or use my finger to apply which leaves me with more of a stain of color that last quite a while.
I also really enjoy the light sweet scent.

Skincare -L'Oreal Paris -Pure Clay Detoxify and Brighten Cleanser

While this cleanser does a good job at getting your face clean w/out drying it out. There’s a more efficacious way to use this then just wetting your hands and washing. Btw, this doesn’t emulsify too much. It almost has a mask like texture. Anyway, apply this with dry hands to a dry face. Give it a couple of minutes then wet it massage into face and rinse. I found this product to work better with this technique. Only my opinion!!

Highlighters -bareMinerals -Invisible Glow Powder Highlighter

i bought this once at full price and another during ulta’s recent spring sale. this product is very subtle and gives a very nice hint of sheen on the skin. the powder is super soft and finely milled. i like to use this as an all over face powder versus a highlighter. it gives my skin a super healthy and glowy look to it.

imo this is also a perfect highlight to wear to work for that fresh faced look

Cleansers -Palmer's -Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil

on 4/19/2019 1:01:00 AM

Finances forced me to ditch my beloved Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. I found out about Palmer’s cleansing oil from a Makeupalley message board... and it’ll do nicely! (Palmers: $10 for a 6-oz bottle; Clinique: $30 for a 4-oz jar).

The trick to dissolving makeup well is to apply a couple of pumps of the oil to a DRY face with DRY hands, massage in throughly until makeup is dissolved, and THEN add water to emulsify and rinse. There is a light, natural rose scent in this product— nothing obnoxious and it doesn’t linger after washing. I like roses so that’s a plus for me.

FWIW I have combination skin and I don’t get an y oily residue at all from this product. In fact, my skin feels a bit dry after cleansing and I have to use a moisturizer.

Conditioner -Unlisted Brand -Moist Diane EXTRA Damage Repair Treatment

on 4/19/2019 12:46:00 AM

This is a review for the Damage Repair Treatment conditioner, not the shampoo. I disliked this as a conditioner, since it did not condition, made my hair frizzy and oily, and took too long to rinse out. Since I didn't want to waste it, it worked better as pre-shampoo treatment on my coarse, colored hair. However, I don't use pre-treatments so can't compare it to others. This product is too natural for me. Without more suds my hair feels gross and I get slight breakouts on my face from the oils and humectants. The one good thing about this treatment is that it was gentle on my scalp.

Moisturizers -Tarte Cosmetics -Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H20 Serum

Was recommended this product for my sensitive dry skin, I was little unsure of it until I felt it on my skin and soaked right in and my moisturizer went on even better.. It’s pricey although worth it to me since I have sensitive skin and this is fragrance free and I have not had any issues with it...
