Sticky, thickly and eye irritating, be careful if you have oily and sensitive skin.


Moisturizers -Estée Lauder -Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Estee Lauder's Hydrationist collection is simply beautiful. This cream which I have used all winter and still now heading into spring is just a pleasure to use. There are several products in this line up, some have been discontinued over the years, there is the Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme which comes in a dry skin formula or Normal to combination skin formula. There is also a version available in pump form one with and the other without sunscreen.

Beautiful textures, beautiful light non overpowering fragrances, the creams and lotions sink in beautifully delivering their generous ingredients of anti oxidants, anti irritants, plant extract and botanicals. The cream spreads easily and does not at all feel heavy or greasy, it provides just the right amount of moisture to soothe dry skin and condition it beautifully. I have tried all textures including the lotion on hot summer days when you dont want anything too heavy. Take the required amount of cream with a disposable cotton tip not your fingers, your cream will last longer that way and won't spoil.

I have seen soothing and nourishing qualities from the use of this collection I highly recommend it.

Well done Estee Lauder I can always count on you for quality and glamour.

Eye Shadow -BH Cosmetics -Take Me Back to Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Eyeshadow Palette

Very nice colours, with pay-off. Also very versatile, since it can be used for multiple looks.


Cleansers -LUSH -9 to 5

I've been searching for a new cleanser ever since my HG got discontinued and this was the latest one I got.

I tend to double cleanse my face, first with some sort of oil cleanser, before using a second cleanser to make sure all the makeup is gone. The cleanser leaves like a filmy texture behind which is unusual but not 100% unpleasant. I really do like the smell though, it's very nice and sweet.

Still wouldn't repurchase because it costs almost $40 in my country and that is way too much.


Toners -L'Oreal Paris -Hydrafresh Toner

It’s supposed to be alcohol free but it irritates my eyes and no other results from it what so ever. Disappointed.

I bought the mini version of it and I love its colour! It really gives an effect of wet cheek bones. Apart from that, it feels a bit greasy and I don't like its scent.


Treatments (Face) -Palmer's -SKIN SUCCESS FADE GEL

Palmer's Skin Success is a rather successful line of products that is a sub brand of product out of the many sub brands from Palmer's which is mostly known for the Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E.

The skin success line features Hydroquinone as it's main skin lightening ingredient at a concentration of 2%. This is the concentration that is allowable over the counter, at 4% or more generally one would need a prescription from your doctor or dermatologist. This fade gel according to the packaging should visibly fade Dark Spots, Age Spots, Post-Acne Scars, Discolouration and Melasma.

Among the well researched, and safety proven Hydroquinone, this and many of the other products in the skin success line utilise other well known research backed and proven effective skin brightening ingredients like Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin E, Hydroxy Fruit Acids such as Lemon, Sugar Maple, Orange, and Blueberry extract although they don't work exactly like Lactic Acid or Gylcolic Acid they do have some effectiveness from their own acid content.

This formula is in gel form and can easily be worn under make-up after cleansing and toning. Be warned as it does contain alcohol, probably the only peeve I have with product as a high amount of alcohol (it is the second ingredient after water in this formula) has been shown to cause free radical damage, can be extremely drying and possibly prevent those with a sensitive acneic skin to break out.

If you don't want to use this on your face then you may use it on the discolourations on your body such as your back, elbows, knees, underarms, in between thighs or buttocks, any areas of friction that cause excess melanin production.

This is wonderful for combination to oily skin's as the formula is very lightweight and easy to wear, however remember it does contain alcohol so please monitor your skin closely whilst using this product. If you are flaking or starting to get irritated or at all itchy or uncomfortable, then reduce application to every other day and build up your tolerance to it.

Even though the packaging states that this is for sensitive combination skins, I don't think anyone with sensitive skin ought to use it, the alcohol would be murder for your fragile easily irritated skin.

This product should solely be used for those with a strong resilient combination to oily skin that can withstand alcohol content. I believe the reason why they included alcohol is to increase the penetration of the active ingredients, an old fashioned formulary technique.

The colour is beautiful, but it's difficult to apply without being patchy.


Foundations -CHANEL -Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

I am surprised that there're so many negative reviews, because I personally haven't encountered any of the problems other reviewers had mentioned. I have combination to oily skin that is not dehydrated at all. I don't use any moisturiser or primer with this foundation and I can get away with that. It does set very quickly. But I find that I have enough time to spread the foundation as long as I apply it bit by bit in smaller areas each time, as opposed to what YouTubers would do (Dot the foundation all over and then blend). Oh, I use my fingers. In terms of the finish, I don't find it emphasize pores (I have many) or dry patches. It is a traditional matte finish that is very sophisticated but a little flat. The coverage is more of a medium. After 4 hours, my oil starts to come through which is pretty normal for my skin. But I don't find excessive oil make it cakey or patchy, only more natural. Only criticism: the shade range is small and peachy/pink. Can't find decent cool/warm yellow shades. Although the shades have the same names as of other ranges from Chanel, the actual colours are different. In all, I think you can only pull this foundation off when you have: -combination to oily skin -no dehydration or dry patches AT ALL -pink to neutral undertone Lastly, do I think it worths the money? No. Not that it's a bad foundation, it's just I can find similar foundations with a better shade range from cheaper brands.


Eye Primer -theBalm Cosmetics -Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer

Quite decent for oily eyelids, but have to wait at least 10 minutes for it to dry before applying eye shadow.
