Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Cologne

on 12/12/2017 6:52:00 AM

Thankfully I received this as a sample because I was on the verge of blind buying it (usually not a good idea). I'm extremely glad I got a chance to try it first because once the short life of bergamot goes away you're left with a dupe of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino. If you like neroli and want a nice clean cologne for summer this is definitely for you. The scent life was short, only about 2 hours and as a cologne stayed close to the skin. I'm not a huge fan of neroli so this was a no-go for me, especially since I have Eau de Rochas which is perfect for summer and has a lot more depth and staying power. The good news is that it comes in a generously sized bottle for a reasonable price so reapplying isn't a problem, especially if you take a spray decant with you on the go. The reason I gave it a lower score was because there are similar, better options out there and for the longevity issue. Some other reviewers got a longer scent life out of it so it might be a good idea to try before you buy and see how it performs in the heat.

I find this product to be okay. Sadly the dark shade is not dark enough for me. So I hardly use the powder but the gel comes very handy.it's quite inexpensive.


Powder -L'Oreal -True Match Super-Blendable Compact Makeup in Soft Sable

on 12/12/2017 6:20:00 AM

I haven't tried that many powders so I still reserve my definitive judgment but so far, I like it. It's finely milled, the color match is good and it keeps the oil at bay for some time. I live in a very humid region so makeup longevity is an issue but this really helps.
I love the compact packaging, easy to sneak in a clutch.
Money well spent

Love this product. I use it after I washed my hair. I apply it to the ends of my hair and blow try it. It makes my hair look shiny and less dry. I already bought a second bottle for if I run out of the other one.

I love to use this product for taking off my eye make up. I mostly wear liquid eyeliner and mascara. It's very easy to take it off. I don't use it for my face since I prefer to use a cleansing balm and toner. It's a good value for money. Definitely will keep buying this!


Blush -MAC -Mocha

Mocha blush is a classic. I’ve owned this several times and I’ve bought it for my mom. It’s a very wearable everyday pink. On me, it’s very neutral. It’s not peachy or yellow or blue. I personally don’t see the plum and it reads slightly warm on me. I have a hard time with pinks, but I love this one.
The formula is amazing. It’s Pigmented and buildable and blendable. My mom struggled with hard pan but I never have. I’m not sure what she and I do differently.
I love that I can get it in a pan and pop it in a palette.


Shampoo -Organix -Bamboo Fiber-Full

This shampoo has been one of the worst I've ever tried. It dried up my daughter's scalp & mine (I have oily roots) and it made both our scalp itchy. It smells good, but that was the only plus.


Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand -AmLactin 12%

I bought Amlactin for KP on my arms. It didn’t work for me. (MUAC glycolic body lotion does) But I still used it on my body because it’s an excellent moisturizer. In fact, of all the mainstream lotions and homemade exotic body butters/oils I’ve tried, this is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. Hands down.

Then one day tried it on my face. I am NOT a fan of cream/lotion on my face, I hate them, really. I use oils to moisturize and cleanse and have been for a decade. But I really love the Amlactin!
If you have dry, flaky, dehydrated skin and you want to put something on that will absorb fully, leave your skin soft and plump and possibly do some work on tone and texture, this is it. Before using Amlactin, my face could stand to be moisturized with oils at least 2 times a day, maybe 3. It’s just dehydrated and can get dry. Amlactin leaves my skin soft and plump for like 24 hours. It banishes crepey-ness, any flakes, it plumps lines and is really helping with my skin tone.

Of course, it contains mineral oil and 12% ammonium lactate, and it’s very rich on the skin, so it’s probably not ideal for everyone. But I love it. Just a tiny bit, a dime size on freshly washed skin. It absorbs, doesn’t leave a silconey film. I don’t use it every day because I use other actives like Retin a, C E Ferulic and occasional Mandelic peels. Probably about 3-4 times a week.

Ounce for ounce it’s way cheaper than other lactic acid face creams, and I love how it leaves my skin. The MUAC glycolic body lotion works wonders on my KP, but it’s nowhere near as moisturizing and softening as Amlactin. I’ve ordered 2 more bottles recently because I love it that much. I use it head to toe.

I cant put into words how highly I recommend and love Amlactin. Put aside the Cerave and Ceptapil and E45, and try this.

It’s rated pretty well on cosdna, and reviewed highly on acne.org.

Highlighters -Essence -Strobing Highlighter

on 12/12/2017 3:40:00 AM

Just. Don't. I've never felt the need to actually create an account on this app in order to leave a warning to people thinking of buying a product. I've had mostly good experiences with Essence products, I use their felt tip liner and their face contouring powder set and am happy with both. So I purchased this highlighter yesterday without swatching it and when I used it this morning I stood there wondering what I was doing wrong - it's almost like it wasn't making contact with my skin at all. The bits of shimmer you see in the pan must be some kind of optical illusion, because they do not show up on your skin. And I started getting reckless with the product to make sure because I don't have any important appointments today. Don't waste your money. There are better products at slightly higher price points.
