Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50

on 3/28/2017 4:03:00 PM

In my life search for the perfect facial sunscreen (ongoing), this is one of the best. It applies like a dream; it's unfragranced but has a pleasant smell; it has a sort of whipped mousse consistency that makes it feel light but at the same time it's moisturising; all these aspects make it a pleasure to use. It doesn't ball up under makeup either. It has a good % of zinc oxide, is water resistant, and was recommended by my derm so I know I can trust it for protection. The trade off (and there's always one with SPF) is the GREASE. Makeup slides around on top of it and goes on very sheer, all day I look like I have the sweats. The search continues, but I'll continue to repurchase until I find another, more cosmetically elegant alternative.


Bronzers -The Body Shop - Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

It's cruelty free, but CRIMINALLY GOOD!! I love shade 01 (the lightest) as it's got no shimmer, or orange pigment it's perfect for all over dusting on light/medium complexions and will build to a natural looking colour. Secondly it's the perfect contouring bronzer, light enough for everyday, that won't give you that "gulp, I've got to blend that!" Moment. You can just apply merrily and look great 👍

Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Bondi Sands - Self Tanning Foam Dark

I have brought 4 of these over about a year and a half. IT SMELLS LIKE COCONUT!! WHATS NOT TO LIKE! It gives you a great "natural" as can be from a bottle tan. Apply, leave for 1, 2 or 3 hours (depending on how deep you want the tan) then shower off and it keeps developing whilst you feel clean and fresh. No more "fake tan sheets". I apply mine with latex gloves, meaning no tan build-up on your hands from application and no product waste absorbing into the mitts you can buy. After tanning body and face I pull on the glove line and rub a bit on the top of my hands, then take them off and let the tan do it's magic

Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Beautifully Precise Powder Brush

on 3/28/2017 3:44:00 PM

This brush is so wonderfully soft that you just want to keep swiping it over your skin. I love the large shape and how it effortlessly applies my pressed powder or even my HD illuminating setting powder. It gives my skin a flawless finish that I would only expect from a high end product. I got this for $12 but Elf often has sales so you could easily get it at a discount. Also: the see-through glass-type handle is just lovely and pretty. All in all, fantastic product for a great value!

Sunscreen -Paula's Choice - RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30

I was looking for a good tinted sunscreen to wear on days i didn't want to wear makeup, and this isn't it. This stuff didn't show up on me in the least bit. And I only have slight redness on my chin and few places, and some slight age spots on upper cheeks, and it didn't cover them even the tiniest bit. For reference, i'm around NC15, with slight olive/neutral undertones. It's more like the product is tinted just to show you were to apply it, then it instantly aborbs to clear. I'm shocked that people are saying the tint is too dark or too pink, because i literally can't see it on my skin, even in my magnified mirror.
And that fact could be forgiven if it were cheap and had good protection. It doesn't. First, it's like $35 for 2 ounces (not that cheap in my opinion). Second, it only has a spf of 30, and with 13% zinc oxide, has a ppd of around 6. Yes, 6. You'd be better off buying some cheapo Banana Boat/Hawaiian Tropic stuff for better protection. The only plus i'd say is that it has some nice antioxidants in it, but i use seperate antioxidant serums/gel so i don't need those in my sunscreen/whatever this stuff is supposed to be (sunscreen? tinted moisturizer? moisturizer? it has an identity crisis). Plus, those ingredients are further down the list, so there's no way to know what percentage is actually included.


Eyeliner -Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I’d heard that there were a lot of mixed reviews on this liner. I got mine as a gift from a fellow makeup addict who did not like this product. I must say though that this liner does exactly what I want it to do, which is last all day and remain looking identical to when I applied it at 7AM. You do need to build it a bit to achieve that coveted midnight black but it isn’t too arduous or time-consuming. The tip is really easy to handle, even for an Edith VonShakyhands such as myself! I also use Lancome’s liquid eye-liner, which I did buy myself. But if I had to repurchase one of these products, it would probably be Kat Von D, just because I find it’s easier to handle and achieve different looks.


Styling Products -Garnier - Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum 3 Day Sleek

I love this hair serum. Its so light on the hair and never feels like theres any build-up. It makes hair feel soft and less dry. The bottle is easy to travel with since you can turn the pump to lock it. I use this before straightening and blow drying in addition to the heat protectant from Garnier.


Shampoo -LUSH - Fair Trade Honey Shampoo

My label says "Fairly Traded Honey" but I'm sure it's the same thing. So I HATE the scent of this, I am thinking I just hate natural honey scent since this is one of a few products I have hated the scent of that is honey based. The shampoo itself is okay, it's very thick so I make sure my hair is very thoroughly wet before applying this and I rinse it well after use. When I use this with body shop banana conditioner or Briogeo repairing mask my hair is left incredibly soft and shiny. It doesn't work with all my conditioners and I have not tried it with any lush conditioners. Not sure I would repurchase put as a yes because I love the way it works with Banana Conditioner and Briogeo.


Styling Products -Yves Rocher - Traditional Tiare Oil

Just like the matching eau de toilette, this smells like Summer in a bottle. Quite intense scent upon application but amazing once settled. It nourishes skin and makes it soft. Quite pricey so I use it as a treat. Glass bottle which I just do not understand, not travel friendly at all but it can be easily decanted into a smaller plastic bottle. The packaging is my only complaint though. This stuff is pretty great.

Use VERY sparingly on dry hair if you have fine hair like mine, as the oil is quite thick and heavy. Really good as a pre-shampoo treat though, and I will also probably use this during Summer at the beach/pool as either a pre-treatment or a nourishing treatment after swimming.


Treatments (Face) -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment [DISCONTINUED]

I was so devastated when they discontinued this product, it was my HG. I actually don't like any of their other acne treatments that I've tried, I find them too harsh. This was gentle and soothing and alcohol free and had no irritating ingredients which is rare to find with acne treatments. The closest thing I've found to this product since they stopped selling it is Avon's Clear skin Blemish Clearing Treatment...which I've reviewed if u wanna check it out. But I really wish they would bring back this product...grrrr
