Treatments (Face) -Kiehl's -Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution


I bought this product about a week ago. I can't fault the texture and feel of it on the skin. For something that you expect to be quite harsh, it is very silky and does not irritate my sensitive skin at all. It is also non drying on my skin.
However, I have dark scar marks from the aftermath of spots that i'm dying to get rid of. So far I haven't seen any difference in them, however it has only been a week.
Also this solution is also no good at preventing breakouts, and although it says on the bottle you can use it as a spot solution, I don't think it does anything compared to say, teatree oil.
I will persevere though because it's only been a short amount of time, hopefully I will see results.
Remember if you are not satisfied with Kiehl's products after 28 days, you can take them back and get a refund with their 28 day skincare guarantee!

Hair Treatments -shu uemura -Essence Absolue

This is lovely. I adore the feminine floral scent, and it makes my hair super soft. I bought a small travel size at a warehouse sale, so it didn't cost too much and it lasts forever. I just apply a tiny amount, less than a pea size, to my ends, on either wet or dry hair. A little goes a long way.

Treatments (Face) -Estée Lauder -Perfectionist Correcting Serum


I'm 28 and the lines beside nose begin to appear. I purchased full-size serum, thought it has potential. I have been using this product for 6 months, at daily nighttime skincare routine. The texture gets dry fast so you need to blend it rapidly, you also need more amount than usual for the whole face.
I can see the instant results, my skin looks more even and smooth after applying. However, I think it's just temporary. I have seen no considerable results after 4 weeks or six months. I don't think my fine lines are actually minimized (but maybe because my fine lines haven't been clearly seen yet). Using this before makeup for a smoother base is also a good idea. I'm still quite disappointed with this serum compared to other EL products.
However, using this product, I hope it could prevent aging and wrinkles in the future. I understand once the wrinkles appear, it's nearly impossible to take them back. So I think prevention is better than treatment.
I won't purchase this serum again. I will try the new one Perfectionist Pro, hope it would be better.

Treatments (Face) -La Roche-Posay -Effaclar Duo (US Version)

on 9/13/2018 9:46:00 PM


I wrote a whole long review but deleted it. I don't have cystic acne like some people, but I would occasionally get some, plus infected whiteheads I messed with. So I hoped products like this would cut the infection rate. Basically I hated BP treatments since using Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing lotion. It made my skin taught, shiny, flakey and raw while I still had breakouts. It was a mess. Because I'm more dry than oily, these types of treatments tend to be disastrous.

Eventually I tenatively tried this and thought it was working better, but after some time I felt the same. Oddly, I use Clean and Clear 10% BP as well as Equate's version and those are fine. But every time I pull this out, it does the same. I tried enough times to give it another chance until I just chucked it. So maybe it works for some, but it messes my skin up badly.

Concealers -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

I don't usually use Estee Lauder, but I picked this up really cheap at a warehouse sale. It has become my go-to concealer for spot concealing, pimples and stuff. It covers perfectly and doesn't tend to cake and bring attention to itself as much as some other concealers.

BB Cream -CHANEL -CC cream

on 9/13/2018 9:40:00 PM


I bought this cream having very high expectations after reading all the great reviews it received. Sadly I ended up really disappointed since it made my skin break out in a way I’ve never experienced before! Not just pimples but like small cysts or something. I really wanted to love this cream and and I did when I first applied it, scent, texture and colour, everything was great but then came this little issue with the break out.. Of course there’s always a chance this reaction comes from something else, but I’m really sceptical since the only change in my routine and diet was this cream. The bumps would literally arrive at the end of every day I wore it, get better during the night and all the next day until I applied this thing again and then voila! I used to wear MAC cream which was great but sadly got discontinued. Trying Clinique now so let’s see how that will turn out!

Mascara -MAKE UP FOR EVER -Smoky Extravagant Mascara

on 9/13/2018 9:38:00 PM


This was absolutely terrible. I don't know if I got one that went bad or something, but it was goopy as heck. I couldn't make it work, I threw it out after two tries.

Polishes -Illamasqua -Pink Raindrops

on 9/13/2018 9:36:00 PM


Ugh, terrible. I expected it to be, well, a pink version of Raindrops. It's not. The formula is atrocious, thick and goopy and uneven. If you do manage to get it on, it doesn't even look particularly pretty, the glass flecks aren't as pronounced as in Raindrops. Total fail.

Eye Primer -MAC Cosmetics -Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base

on 9/13/2018 9:34:00 PM

I've avoided MAC primers in the past because back in the day they weren't very good. Well, I'm sure glad I gave this one a try. It's my new HG eye primer. And I've already used up two tubes within the past two years, so I'm not saying that lightly. My previous favourite was NARS Pro Prime. I still like that one too, but it's so expensive considering how fast I go through it. This MAC one has better packaging (but be careful, because it has a large opening and it's easy to squeeze out too much), and it's much better value for money. For reference, my lids aren't particularly oily or dry, and I really just need my shadow to last all day. This certainly works for that.

Primer/ Corrector -Hourglass Cosmetics -Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

on 9/13/2018 9:26:00 PM


I almost never return make-up, but I returned this. I was really happy with it at first. I loved the feel of it and it made my foundation apply better and last longer. However, within about two weeks I started to get milia around my eyes. I haven't had milia in more than a decade! I wasn't using any other new products so I was pretty sure this was it. And I was right, the milia stopped as soon as I stopped using this. Such a disappointment. Also, the packaging is very pretty but not at all travel friendly.
