Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - - Vivo Per Lei Facial Peeling

on 9/24/2017 9:48:00 PM

I can't even remember how I ended up with this product, but I certainly had no clue about these sorts of facial peeling gels or how to use them. Once I learned, I developed mixed feelings about the product. It can sometimes work well for me, exfoliating my face fairly gently and leaving it smooth. On the other hand, I find this peeling gel doesn't do much if I've used any sort of exfoliating product already in a given week, so I am limited to weekly usage if I want to get any tangible results... otherwise, I just wind up rubbing the gel on my face very hard with little to show for it. As far as physical exfoliants go, this product is gentler and more effective than many exfoliating products with much larger exfoliants, but I only get results if I use it fairly infrequently (once a week or less often). As my first experience with peeling gels, it's been a bit lackluster, but perhaps I just don't care for the entire experience of the product type. Your mileage may vary, but this product is nowhere near a must have for me.

A nice, sulphate free shampoo that clarifies well. Very refreshing on a hot day because of the tingly peppermint!

These wipes burned my eyes and face. They didn't cleanse well. I usually added some coconut oil to get them to remove makeup. I was not impressed. I'll give the sensitive version of these wipes a try.

Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

I've noticed that my once combination skin that was on the oilier side is now way more on the dry side..... as in Sahara Desert dry. I needed something especially on the side of my face that would be hydrating enough and not break up my foundation as no matter what Foundation I use and no matter how much primer I use it always tends to break up because of dryness on the lower side of my face.

Enter Clinique Moisture Surge intense. I wore this every day for five days. It definitely does deliver moisture and made my skin I must feel sticky. My makeup didn't look too bad over it however within 3 days I started to notice breakouts. By day 5, I have white pimples all over my face. This has never happened to me with any other product. I am very sensitive to wheat and I noticed that they have a wheat bran in this. Not to mention a whole slew of pore clogging ingredients . I'll stick to my derma e and my andalou and just add some Argan oil for moisture.

Mascara -Marcelle - Ultimate Lash

New HG for me. It gives a clean but volumized look. It DOES NOT irritate my eyes! At ALL! That is big for me. I always buy $$$ these days the pricier the better thinking they will be less prone to hurting my eyes but all of them have given problems. The worst offenders have been Guerlain (huge cyst/swelling), and Lancome (painfully hurting) and Dior (flaking and constant tiny specks in eyes caused massively sensitive and red eyes weeks after using it regularly). Marcelle? The answer was so near all along? (Even though it is not waterproof it doesn't smudge or flake even with slight tearing. My YSL always washes off and smudges AND irritates my eyes AND clump city! My lashes are genuinely definitely thicker (Benefit, YSL and Dior mascaras all mad my lashes fall off maybe from the formula or fragrance?). This has none of those issues but looks better. I have to stop being suckered in by beautiful packaging and go for end result. This genuinely rocks my socks.

Foundations -Yves Saint Laurent - All Hours Full Coverage Matte Foundation

foto

This foundation has a beautiful finish with a medium coverage, but does not last "all hours" as it claims on my combo oily skin. It wears like a hydrating bb cream, and my blush and hightlighter are gone within a couple hours. Therefore, I cant reccomend it to anyone needing it to last, but I can recommend it for the finish and feel. This would work on dry skin. Im glad I just got a sample.


Liquid -Dior - Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF25

After waiting FOREVER (since 2011) for this wonderful foundation to add shades that will match my very fair skin (the pre-2011 versions were all too orange), DIOR finally came out with new shades! Hallelujah! Love this foundation: good coverage, good finish, long-lasting, and NOW finally it's light enough for my skin ton

Cons
- would be nice if Dior added even lighter shades
- Not very moisturizing
