Lotions/ Creams -Dove - DermaSpa youthful vitality hand cream

on 4/28/2017 2:35:00 AM

I was drawn by the super sleek packaging of this product, the promise of younger-looking hands and Dove's overall reputation when it comes to affordable, OK quality products.

What I got - a hand cream that is easily absorbed, which I really appreciate. However, it has waaay too much perfume, and it smells so intense that I avoid applying it in closed places while in public, as I know it will bother some people. Also, it doesn't provide nearly as much hydration as I need, and it certainly does not make skin look any younger. Not repurchasing.

For this during ulta's beauty days and am impressed. Wears well, brush is nice and does not clump.


Moisturizers -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 with Sunboost ATB

A great daily moisturizer without the greasy feel that normally accompanies SPF. No shine if worn solo. Packaging feels very secure. Glad they sell different sizes as well, as I don't like to buy huge sizes of products that may deteriorate over time (especially if they're expensive).


Cleansers -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Cleansing Oil

I do love this oil. For a deluxe sized sample in a sample pack of some Josie Maran and fell in love, unfortunately the price point is high. I use this on dry skin as a first cleanser and it feels so wonderful on the skin. No discernible scent I can find memorable.


Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice - RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

Lovely antioxidant serum, especially if your skin is on the dry side. Consistency is like runny honey and it feels hydrating. I stopped using this in the morning as I started using a separate vitamin C serum which this also contains. Also it takes quite a long time on me to absorb so isn't the best to apply under makeup. I've switched to using PC light antioxidant serum so won't repurchase.


Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice - RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

I use this everyday, I apply over my Vitamin C E Ferulic serum once its dry. This stuff is very light and absorbs quickly and easily leaving no trace on the skin which makes it great for layering products. After this I apply my spf Moisturiser. It is expensive for the amount you get, I try to buy when on offer. My skin has massively improved over a few months but that's with use of several products to target my problem areas. I see this as more of a preventative measure of skin care and I will continue to repurchase.


Concealers -NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer

I really like this concealer- It has really good coverage for my dark circles and with some colour correcting it all but gets rid of them, score! I have combo skin and my undereye area had always been a pain for me- I have some dry skin and some oily patches there, but I didn't find it dried out my skin much at all. I've tried quite a few concealers and I've always had a pretty big problem with creasing and smudging even with baking and setting, but I've had 0 problems with this one. I think going a bit higher end worked out.

I got the shade Chantilly hoping it would be a tad lighter than my skin for highlighting a little, but if you're very pale like I am the shade is basically a skin match. I can't complain too much though, now I use it for covering imperfections and the occasional spot and I think I prefer using it like this and highlighting with something else.

Lip Treatments -Badger - Cocoa Butter Lip Balm in Creamy Cocoa

I'm not sure why it happened, but my lips got super irritated and chapped from this lip balm. They were bleeding, the corners of my mouth cracked and were bleeding, it was brutal. I had to use burts bees and aquaphor, they're mostly. healed up now, but yeah... Had no clue why it was happening, but super painful and super ugly. A direct correlation to this because when I used it again a few times, same result. Got rid of all my badger lip balms.

I liked the tube- a big, fat tube with a great twisty bit and all; I liked the smell and lack of flavor and feel... but I didn't like my lips cracking and bleeding.

Treatments (Face) -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Pads

foto

I like these as a drugstore SA option. I picked them up because of a review I saw on Caroline Hirons' blog. The directions on the packaging instruct to use these one-three times per day. I think the alcohol content is way too harsh/drying/irritating to use these every single day, which is evident once you open the jar. The strong alcohol scent is very potent. I do feel these were the most helpful when swiping over any problem areas on my jaw line, and especially on my chest or shoulders, which is the purpose I would end up repurchasing for. I think Nip & Fab makes better SA/glycolic pads for the face or even Stridex feels slightly more mild on the face than these do!
