Cleansers -CeraVe -Foaming Facial Cleanser

foto

This is a first impression review- if I don't update this it means I agree with what I have written here.

I have combo skin and it is currently a bit dehydrated from my own foolishness. I've been using this to give my skin a break and my skin has been much happier. This is perfectly PH balanced which is super important!! Foams well- could likely be used with a spin brush if you have one. I will try it with mine once I let my face chill.

I know there a few questionable ingredients to pay attention to, but I do like that it includes Hyaluronic acid. For those that may not know, this ingredient is a really strong humectant that encourages your skin to draw in and hold more moisture. Great for dehydrated ( not the same as dry) skin. I also like that by using this, at least my cleanser is gentle and I can always add spot treatments etc to treat problem areas. Thus far, I haven't had any issues. I know Cerave is a dermatologist's favourite and a lot of aestheticians have mentioned it as well.

I don't really think it's fair to rate this a 1/5 just because it didn't remove all of your makeup. Makeup removing products exist for a reason. I remove mine with micellar water and this easily removed the excess- my cotton pad I toned with came clean. Just my opinion.

Liquid -sisley -Phyto-Teint Eclat Liquid Oil-Free Foundation

One of the few non-organic foundations I'd repurchase again and again. Texture is just beautiful, very smooth and easy to apply, to be expected for such a high price point though. Did not break me out either, which is rare with foundations that are not natural. The coverage is medium, stays on quite well, and has never given me any problems with any product I use underneath as a base.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Calamine Lotion

My go to spot treatment. Extremely cheap, large size and very affordable. My skin just loves this stuff. I was trying some new, trending face care regimines and didn't realize how much it was irritating my face- or more so I didn't realize my face wasn't just breaking out but it was getting irritated/reacting.

I put this on overnight when it was really upset and woke up to almost no redness. It IS drying, yet not irritating. It's really hard to explain- drying yet soothing?? Kind of a paradox.

Lately I've liked to put on my other night treatments (salicylic acid or tea tree products) on my pimples or spots and then put the calamine over it once it has absorbed a bit. I think it protects the spot and enhances the effectiveness.

Obviously this isn't marketed towards acne specifically, so the bottle is a bit clunky and mine has a screw cap. You can easily transfer this to a different bottle- just make you shake it before each use!

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Snow White

I love this color!!! Super pretty. It's not a classic red but more of a deep red...BUT I hate this formula and the packaging. The formula is super moisturizing but it is soo messy and gets everywhere. It bleeds out quickly and doesn't stay in the lines : ( the packaging feels so cheap and the lid doesn't stay on good.....i really wish this was better....


Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand -Now solutions Grapeseed oil

It's that time of the year again - September- which means I need to start moisturizing my hair and face again.I recently started researching oils, as I was looking to hydrate on a budget. This cost me around $6.00 on Amazon for 16 oz which is great compared to the pricier oils out there ( I wanted to try argan or moroccan but have very thick hair so 1 ounce won't last long on me). I LOVE this oil. A little goes a long way - i squeeze the size of a dime in my palm when my face is dry and massage it all over. I also use this on my hair and love how lightweight it feels on my wavy hair (I love coconut oil hair masks but coconut oil is very heavy). This is a great cheap oil that truly moisturizes and makes me feel glowly from within.

Shampoo -Garnier -Whole Blends - Maple Remedy

The smell is divine! The shampoo and conditioner did not work well for me though. I have fine, normal to oily hair, and this formula is just too heavy. My hair was super oily on day 2. It is better suited for people with coarser/drier hair. The smell though!

Lipstick -Sephora Collection -The Red R04

The color payoff is good on this classic red. It was a little dry for me and it seemed to wear off quickly...

Moisturizers -Cetaphil -Moisturizing Cream

foto

I love this moisturizer. It has a creamy consistency. It doesn't contain fragrance. It is very hydrating and soothing. My skin feels good after using it. It never breaks me out. I use it on my face and body.
My only complaint is I wish it weren't in a tub. Jars and tubs expose it to air and bacteria from having to dip into it. This can make it expire faster. If this were a small jar that wouldnt be a problem, since I would go through it faster. However, I am glad the large container saves on cost. I have bought this multiple times and will continue to do so.

Pros:
does its job at moisturizing.
Hydrating and soothing.
No irritating ingredients.
Good deal.

Cons:
owned by a company that tests on animals.
Unsanitary packaging when compared to pump packaging.
