Cleansers -No7 -No 7 Radiant Results Nourishing Micellar Cleansing Oil Review

on 9/9/2018 11:46:00 AM

The Boots Number 7 brand is usually a brand that is just okay for me but does have a few gems that I really like using. The No 7 Radiant Results Nourishing Micellar Cleansing Oil was a miss for me for three reasons. The main reason this didn't work well for me is that even though this remove all my makeup very well, it left the feeling of an oily residue which I then either used another cleanser or a micellar water cleanser to remove afterwards. Another reason I wasn't a huge fan of this product is the amount of denatured alcohol used, and also the amount of fragrance used. Thankfully this is a rinse off product so it isn't nearly as big of an issue if it was a leave on product. The price is a nice deal but there are better cleansers out there. My video review can be seen here:




Deodorants -Unlisted Brand -Sure 48hr Confidence Invisible Solid - All Scents

Found this at Dollar Tree (you can find in other stores however), in the Soothing Calendula Scent, and after using it a few days, went and bought a backup! This stuff works great, is super cheap, and does not leave a bunch of icky residue underarms. It truly is an invisible solid. Only "cheap" deodorant I have found, that actually works well. Will def. continue to use Sure!

Treatments (Face) -Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare -Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Overnight Serum

foto

Awwww I wanted to love this serum as I loved the eye cream and acid toning pads BUT

This was the most disapointing skin care purchase for 2017. The product did way LESS for my skin compared to the Verso Brand of Retinol face serum which is similar in price. It did less for my skin that the far cheaper Indeed Labs Retinol Reface.
So I would not repurchase again. Also it does not absorb that well into the skin.
Disapointing results all around.

The pump dispenser is the best thing about the product- giving really great volume dispensing control.

Skincare - Body -The Body Shop -Olive Dry Oil Mist

I have normal skin. Not too dry and not too oily. And this Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist is easily the best product ever. I spritz it on after my shower or after I take off my makeup, and it makes my skin feel so much better. And even though it’s an olive oil mist, it doesn’t make my skin too oily. I love this product!! Easily 5 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Keep up the great work!!

Self Tanners -L'Oreal Paris -Sublime Bronze Tinted Lotion in Deep

This is the best but you must get “deep” for it to work! I’ve tried Tarte Brazilliance ($42), Clarins gelee Tanner ($32), and FakeBake Dark ($38) and none of them got me such a beautiful medium brown color as the Loreal Sublime Bronze in Deep. Ulta usually carries the Deep but drugstores only have Medium. You could order online for the Deep.

I exfoliate very well, then apply lotion to my ankles, wrists, and knees. You just wear rubber gloves when applying this tanner bc it is so pigmented it will stain your hands no matter how hard you scrub afterwards. I apply generously all over and then let it dry for 20 minutes, wear long sleeved pajamas to bed and wake up with a brown (not orange!) tan. If you do the same thing the next night, you will get pretty dark. If you are very fair, I would suggest mixing a dollop of this into your favorite body moisturizer and apply in order to get a base tan, then try the next night without the moisturizer. This tanner is just very pigmented so if you’re fair it might streak. I’m already NC 25/30 so I use it straight out of the bottle. I actually like the smell of it - smells like shampoo. Only downfall - it has glitter! But no one will see me at night with glitter all over me. Definitely worth trying since it’s only $10. Better than high end!!

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Satin Lipstick - Twig

foto

If I had to pick my favorite lipstick ever, it would have to be MAC Twig lipstick. I love the satin finish as it is soft on the lips and doesn't feel dry, and comfortable on the lips. The shade colour is my favorite, a deep-rose colour with a stunning Pinky-brownish undertone. The shade is a perfect nude for olive/Indian skin tones. I like pairing the lipstick with Rimmel London Spice lip liner, which I think goes quite well together. I would defo wear this shade on a date.

Lasted for a few hours, the pigmentation is good and there isn't a weird smell to it. The packaging on the other hand, I always thought it was plain and boring compared to other lipsticks. The quality and quantity you get is good though. Rachel Green from Friends is very much a style icon, so would I recommend this lipstick? 100%

Cleansers -Philosophy -The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

on 9/9/2018 8:36:00 AM

I have been buying this for years and was very happy with it! However, when I repurchased it, I was extremely disappointed to find that the formula had been changed! Why? I don't understand companies who change the formulas of products that have been beloved by consumers for years!

Problems:
It will not come out of the bottle!
It is thick and sticky and the consistency of Elmers!! By the time I get it out of the bottle and thin enough to put on my face, the grains have all gone down the drain!!


I will not repurchase this! Find a dupe ladies! Don't pay $25.00 for a bottle of glue and put it on your face …. Just sayin


Polishes -wet n wild -Megalast - Haze Of Love

on 9/9/2018 7:47:00 AM

Polishes like Wet n Wild Haze of Love are so great that I don't know why I buy other brands.
I was on vacation, wearing OPI. It chipped the 1st day, I bought this hurriedly in a Walgreens.
A true One Coat Winner!!! The polish is a deep velvety crème brick red, it's not wine but not glaring red either.
The consistency is perfect, not too runny, not too thick. The wide one swipe, full brush makes it a breeze to apply.
From force of habit I used 2 coats, a top coat of Seche Vite and I was done in less than 10 minutes!
Very highly recommend.
ETA: This lasted a full week without chipping!

Eye Makeup Remover -NIVEA -Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover

foto

I have just finished my third bottle of this eye makeup remover. I have tried SO many eye makeup removers (Garnier, Boots Botanics, La Roche Posay, Estee Lauder, Clarins, The Body Shop Camomile) and this one is the best by far. It NEVER stings my eyes no matter how much I use on a cotton pad. I wear a lot of eye makeup and it takes off mascara exceptionally well without having to really scrub the eyes! It's not drying or irritating. Inexpensive.I will continue to use this as I have not found an eye makeup remover as good as this one.
