Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena -Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

Pretty greasy to be oil free but I always end up coming back to this because its cheap and it does the job. doesnt sting the eyes and doesnt have a strong smell. Ive tried clinique, lancome, chanel, missha and they all work the same, honestly. Just the greasiness level differs, but since i do clean my face with a cleansing balm, i really dont mind the residue. I do a double cleanse too. This takes off my makeup and false lashes just as good as the others ive mentioned. Theres no need to spend more for a makeup remover imo. I like the cleansing wipes by neutrogena also!

i usually use this for spot cleansing when i mess up my eye makeup or if i am taking off my fake eyelashes. I rub a drenched qtip on the band and it just slides right off after a couple of seconds.

Cleansers -Now Foods -Vitamin C & Manuka Honey Gel Cleanser

I really loved this cleanser at first. I used it in the shower to take off my makeup and it did a very good job of that.
But over time it seemed drying, and my cheeks got a bit dry and red after using it.
Also, it contains phenoxyethanol, which is a possible carcinogen and that's not good at all. Especially since its supposed to be a natural product.


Shampoo -Redken -Color Extend Blondage Color Depositing Purple Shampoo

Holy dermatitis!! My neck and chest erupted into a red hot rash from this shampoo.
I know it was this shampoo because I did not change anything else in my product lineup and It was only on my chest and back of my neck. If you look at the back of the bottle is says to do a patch test before using. Well I didn't see that little notice and here I am with a raging rash from hell. Do not buy this shampoo its toxic, especially to sensitive skin like mine.


Treatments (Face) -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -Gly-Luronic Acid Serum

I've tried the MUAC 40% Lactic Acid, 30% Glycolic Acid, 25% Madelic Acid, and 15% BHA. The 40% Lactic and 30% Glycolic over-exfoliated and my skin looked shinny. The BHA was very harsh, and didn't work on deep cysts.

This serum is the best of the four for my skin. The level of exfoliation is just right. It cleared up the cystic acne on my cheeks and chin after 2-3 nightly uses, and it also got rid of the some of the texture on my skin. As previous reviewers stated, it does give you radiance. I've found that I look better-rested since using this product, though I haven't really changed my lifestyle.

The product is packaged in an airless pump, ensuring you get the last drop of product and minimising the product's contact with air.

I apply it after I've washed my face and before any other products. It tingles a bit for 30 seconds, then settles to nothing. After the serum, I apply the Suqqu Moisture Repair Essence N, Suqqu Moisture Hydro Lotion, and Sisley Black Rose Cream or Mask.

I can see myself using it until it runs out, but I am going to reduce my use from nightly to 2-3 times per week to avoid over-exfoliation.

Overall, I would recommend this over MUAC's chemical peels, if you are starting to experiment or if you've found the peels to be too harsh.

As always, avoid the sun, seek shade, and wear plenty of SPF 50+ sunscreen.

Cleansers -Sulwhasoo -Gentle Cleansing Oil EX

This is such a pretty packaging but it smells like herbal medicine. I cant handle the fragrance. It rinse off perfectly and has a thicker feel to the oil. I was so put off by the scent i returned it.

Scrubs -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

I really did not think it would work but surprisingly it does.
It leaves my skin soft and gently exfoliated without being too harsh or leaving my skin irritated and dry.
I like to use it once a week and on occasion, I will use it twice back to back. 2-3x month.
Not a miracle worker but it does a pretty good job.
I have also used it on my underarms and feet with good results but it did take a few uses before I saw real improvement.
I have done a few tests to see if it was really working and it did show improvement on the side I was using it on.
On that note, I also rubbed it on a placemat and it beaded up the same way it does when used on the skin, just slightly less, so I am not 100% convinced all the debris we see is the skin being exfoliated off but it does do something.
I like the clean look of the packaging the pump could use some improvement because as you approach the halfway mark and beyond it does not pump properly. I have about a third of the bottle left and it is very hard to get anything out through the pump so I have to unscrew the top to get the product out.
I don't think I will personally purchase this again because I feel if you are already using glycolic acid or similar acid I do not think this is really necessary and over exfoliating can cause more damage and more blemishes.
I think I might end up purchasing it mainly for my daughter who is going into junior high and she can use it as needed.

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane

I really enjoy using this in my hair. My hair is very long and I only use 1 drop of this to moisturize. It makes my hair smooth and healthier looking. Sadly, I can't use this on my face. It's not enough moisture, but the original squalane oil is great for your face!

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

Most moisturizers break me out or inflame my very sensitive rosacean skin. I can actually use this! It feels so soothing and cool when applied. The amount of moisture is perfect for my skin. Ive been using it for almost a month with zero reactions. This is the calmest my skin has been in 20 years. I'm so excited that I finally found a moisturizer I can use on my crazy reactive skin!

Eyeliner -Kat Von D -Tattoo Liner

When I swatched this on my hand I was not impressed it was dull and not very pigmented.
However, on the lid, it gives a nice very dark black line. I like how fine the point is making it easy to stay close to the lash line. It is also fairly easy to get a perfect little flick.
It lasts all day and does not smudge on me which is very impressive.
The best part is that is last throughout my day but washes right off at night without having to scrub at all.

Liquid -Deciem -The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

I absolutely love this foundation! I feel like I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation for the past 25 years. I've never found one better than this! The coverage is really good. I have rosacea, so I have lots of redness that this product covers perfectly. The texture of it is amazing. It just glides on the skin like water. It doesn't cake or flake at all. It looks so natural, like real skin. The best part is it doesn't break me out AT ALL, which is amazing in itself. As for the shade, I usually wear the lightest in every brand. I'm a natural redhead and wear MAC nw15, Revlon buff, Bareminerals Fair, Covergirl Ivory. I purchased 1.1P and it's almost perfect. I would still like to try 1.1N, 1.0N and 1.0P, but 1.1P is really nice. Not too dark, not too pink, not too yellow. It's a good starting point if your coloring is similar to mine.
