Neck/Decollete Cream -Revive -Neck Renewal Cream

I have been using Revive Fermitif' Neck Renewal Cream for over a week now, and although it is too early to see the full results, I have noticed improvement in the texture of my skin.

I am giving it 4 stars at this point because it is too early to say how good it is.

Moisturizers -Clinique -Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

foto

I have very dry skin and decided to purchase this to keep my face hydrated. It felt odd on my skin and it did not feel moisturized at the end of the day. I still had dry patches. I was hoping for a miracle but it didn’t happen. It has a nice texture and doesn’t go on thick and doesn’t sting. It just didn’t seem to do anything for my skin unfortunately except make it appear a little more glossy after applying. I suggest trying a sample first before making a full purchase like I did to see if this will work for your skin.

Skincare - Body -Egyptian Magic -Healing Cream

I did not immediately appreciate Egyptian Magic until I figured out how to use it. It's an oil, so you only need a TINY TINY bit for effective moisturizing without greasiness, and this applies to all oils. Start with too little and build up if you need to. This is a solid that melts as you rub it in so it's super travel friendly. I take maybe half a pea amount for my hands and cuticles, and then pat my face, especially the eye area, before bed instead of a night cream. My lashes seem healthier and my eyebrows are better behaved. My cuticles don't rip up if I diligently use this after washing my hands. My lips are healed. This is nothing like Vaseline in that it sinks into your skin. For very chapped lips I use this first and then seal it all in with Vaseline. The main ingredients are olive oil and bees wax, so it has a very natural olives with a touch of honey scent. This may bother you but I don't mind. I do think it's overpriced considering the ingredients but as long as my skin loves it I'll use it. It'll last ages anyway.

Lip Treatments -Bite Beauty -Agave Lip Balm

I got this in a blister pack with the Sephora birthday gift, and I have to say, I do like how thick this is. I've been wearing it overnight and it easily lasts until morning. It also happens to be pretty good to wear underneath lipstick, and a little goes a long way. However, it's way too expensive for how little you get in a tube.


Tinted Moisturizer -Hourglass -Illusion® Hyaluronic Skin Tint

This just didn’t work for me. I found it applied well and had a lovely finish after blending. It, it only looked good for about 4 hours before it started breaking down like crazy. I tried it with primer (Hourglass veil, which I love), without primer, setting, no setting; it made no difference. Contrary to some, I actually really like the packaging. It may not look amazing, but it’s very practical.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Telescopic Mascara

The first time I used this, I hated it. Too clumpy, takes too long to dry, and too easy to bend the wand the wrong way. The second time I used it, I still wasn't crazy about it . . . but had to admit my eyelashes were suddenly very fluttery, as if I was wearing falsies.

I see why this is a well-loved product, because it seems to corner the market for length. I've never used a mascara that made my eyelashes look so outrageously long, so I'll hold on to this for special occasions, but I still like to go for modest length in my everyday makeup. Probably won't buy it again, though, since I still find it hard to work with. The finished look is somewhat spiky, so if you prioritize definition like I do, this will not be your friend. I'd also recommend pairing it with an eyelash curler.

Sunscreen -Shiseido -Ultimate Sun Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen + WetForce for Sensitive Skin & Children

For many years I have used Shiseido sun products for my face. I got this to use under makeup and also for swimming. The formula dries like clay. There is no way you would want to use this under makeup. So, I thought I would use it for swimming and whenever I’m not wearing makeup. Big mistake. This stuff doesn’t come off. I expected that because it is water resistant. When this stuff comes off, it brings your face with it. It’s a bit extreme. It does work quite well as a sunblock and is water resistant. I have gotten others from Shiseido that have the same amount of protection without the drying and face peeling effect. So disappointed with Shiseido.

Treatments -Sally Hansen -Cuticle Rehab

I am embarrassed to admit I thought this was cuticle remover when I purchased it. So I was impressed by the watermelon scent. It doesn't double as a cuticle remover, in case you were curious. But I have to admit it doesn't really moisturize the cuticles either. In my opinion, a product like this may make the nails more brittle and dry. The only product that is adequate moisture for the cuticles is a cuticle oil, applied at least once a day before bed, if not more often. The brush applicator on this is also ridiculous because the product is too thick for squeeze tube.

Cleansers -Farmacy -Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm

I bought this as it has non-comedogenic and non-irritating ingredients, and from amazing reviews, but I'm not in love. I feel like it doesnt effectively remove makeup just by massaging the balm in and rinsing it off (is there such a product that does this?) It definately works better when you use a wash cloth to remove the balm as the first step to a double cleanse. I've done a double cleanse with just my current face wash alone (1 st step wiih a washcloth, 2nd cleanse without), and it yielded the same results, so this cleansing balm was not necessary. Also, Sometimes it dried out my face and other times it didnt. As for packaging, I like how it came with a spatula and thats about it. I dont really care to judge it as it serves it purpose lol I will finish this product but I wont repurchase this because it is not what i think a cleansing balm should be. I believe a cleansing balm should effectively remove makeup without having to use a washcloth. I do reccomend it for light makeup days, but not glam days/night.

Lipstick -Besame -Enchanting Lipstick in Red Hot Red

I was looking for a warm red lipstick for my skin tone. I fell in love with the color as it complimented my skin tone so well, but the shape of the lipstick was made......differently. I couldn't deal! There were instructions on how to apply the lipstick: It was reccomended that you sit in front of a mirror with a lip brush and your elbow on the table....and then you are supposed to line your lips with the lip brush and fill in. Whatever it was (going off by memory), I wasnt down, and i felt it was hard to apply the lipstick itself without going past my lips (LOL clown lips). I dont know...I was not coordinated for this. I had to return this product and I dont reccomend this, unless you are down for a challenge. Love the shade range of this line though!! If they change the shape, they will have my money, but until then, I'm saving.
