Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration

on 3/24/2017 10:19:00 PM

Hands down: the best lightweight lotion for sensitive skin. Yes I use it on my face day and night.
It becomes my new favorite. I used to love CeraVe and FAB but now I found that all I want is a fast absorbing lotion with oat in it, which soothes the redness caused by Retin-A.
It's about 'half the weight' of Aveeno regular daily moisturizer. It doesn't sting my face like most FAB creams and moisturizers do when first apply on. If you have used Aveeno Eczema Therapy, you will know how great Aveeno's colloidal oatmeal can relieve the itchy, patchy red eczema. Thank God Aveeno finally makes something good for oily skin with same problem. It's not a surprise that it's on Allure's best beauty product list.
Love, love, love everything about it.

Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay in place Makeup

This foundation gives full coverage and it's very long-lasting but it's definitely not for dry skin as it is very heavy, mask-like, cakey, and it enhances flakes and dry patches. It's definitely not for everyday use as well because it's like cement on skin literally "smothering" your skin making it impossible for your skin to breathe and clear its impurities, which is very important for good healthy skin.

Liquid -L.A. Girl - LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Illuminating Foundation

NO..just no. I have dry and dehydrated skin and this foundation CREATED and ENHANCED flakes on my face even with heavy moisturizers under. After 5 hours of wear, it also managed to make some parts of my skin oily on top of making some parts HELLA flaky. I was an oily cakey mess. It looked like I was wearing a HEAVY mask. EW. I'd run far from this if you have skin type like mine. Actually, I don't see how it would be good for oily skin either as it doesn't control oil either. The coverage is good though.

Shampoo -LUSH - Daddyo shampoo

foto

I had dark brown that was also dyed a darker brown.. i wanted to go lighter and my hair turned a comically orange color.. despite the fact that the hairdresser put toner in.. this purple shampoo is stronger than i thought.. it really helped cut the brass.. however, if you are putting it on dry hair it stains your hands purple.. make sure to wash them. I really thought it wasnt going to work but I am very pleased with this shampoo and the smell is very strong.. however i love the smell.. like lilacs..

Highlighters -E.L.F. - Studio Illuminating Palette

This is a fantastic and cheaper alternative to Hourglass illuminating powders. I find it very similar, maybe a touch more chalky. But for the price point it is an excellent dupe. I will always have this on hand, as long as they don't dc.


Mascara -Lancome - Definicils High Definition Mascara

foto

This was my HG mascara in the nineties and early 2000's, but now compared to other more robust offerings, it seems anaemic. It does build nicely, and lengthens well. But I cannot get the thickness I desire and it takes 2-3 coats to get the length I would like. I bought a tube recently thinking it might be better than what I have been using over the last few years, but it's not as good.


Hair -Head and Shoulders - Head and Shoulders Green Apple Dandruff Shampoo

foto

I had a really bad case of dandruff that is extremely itchy and inflammed. This helped soothe it. I still have it but i think i will just keep using this until it does go away. I never really had dandruff so i wasnt sure if this would actually help but it does!


Mascara -BeneFit Cosmetics - They're Real

foto

I come back to this again and again. I like a lot of lash: big, thick, long. This is the best mascara for getting my lashes to where I want them to be with just one good coat. I left one lippie off because it is hard to get off, even with a biphase remover. I move away from this over and over because i want something easier to remove, but I always come back.


Eye Primer -Wet 'n' Wild - PhotoFocus Eyeshadow Primer

foto

This is hands down the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used. I love the Milani one too but this is better. If you have oily lids, this will be your best friend. My shadows stay in place and no creasing.

Body Scrubs -Tree Hut - Shea Sugar Scrub Moroccan Rose

I absolutely loveee Tree Hut scrubs. They're nice and gritty but not too harsh... I've only bought them at Walmart or Ulta and I always get a good price (between $5-$8) This Moroccan Rose scent in particular smells AMAZINGGG lol. If I had to describe it: a fresh rose scent (not those disgusting perfumey rose scents) mixed with warm almond lol... It's very feminine and fresh like a spa, but it has a warmth to it. The ONLY thing that's kind of annoying is the container...when I shower, moisture gets in the tub and I have to make sure there's no water in there when I'm done so it won't dissolve the sugar. But other than that it's perfect! Will definitely repurchase over and over!
