Treatments (Eye) -CLINIQUE -All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

I bought this product twice, so I used it for almost a year and I am sure about the results now. It helps a bit with the puffiness but not with black circles, at least with me. It keeps the skin under the eyes smooth and ready to concealer. I don't think it has any effect on small wrinkles, it hydrates but it is not a very rich texture. I have tried a lot of eye products and I can say that this one is a bit above average but don't expect too much.

Foundations -L'Oreal Paris -Infallible Pro-Glow 24HR Foundation

I love this foundation. I have combo skin (oily tzone but can get dry patches elsewhere -- especially in Canadian winters!)
This stuff looks so natural and dewy and is super buildable if you want more full coverage. I have tried SO many high end (Sephora) foundations and this is by far my favourite. However, if you are extremely oily and prefer more of a matte/satin finish - this is definitely not the right choice for you!

Hair Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Pravana Hydrating Intensive Leave-In Treatment

I love this product. I have long ass hair -- nearly reaching my bum. It's fine but there is a lot of it! I am blonde -- highlights x2 yearly and have extremely wavy/tangled hair nearly every time I shower. (It literally takes me 40 minutes to brush it out). Well, this stuff is a life saver. I have tried SO many different products and this is by far the best. I love the smell and natural ingredients. The price is on the steep side but to be honest a couple of sprays is all you need, so it lasts a while! A big issue I find with leave in detangler treatments is that they tend to make the hair quite heavy and greasy - I did not find that at all with this guy (and I would say that my scalp is more on the oily side). Anyways, I am currently on my second bottle of this stuff - I LOVE IT!

*QUARTZ*
*I have sensitive,acne prone skin.I have a little it of redness on my cheek.My skin did NOT react to it at all.
It lasts a day, if ind it looks better when you wear it for a couple of hours.The product has no smell. The pigmentation is NOT like OFRA's powder highlighters instead of the highlighter giving a powdery,Powerful look it gives a 'my skin but better' glow,it does not contain chunky pieces of glitter instead it glistens.
I would recommend it for someone who wants a natural glow.
This is one of fav highlighters ever!

Eye Makeup Remover -Yves Rocher -Pur Bleuet Express Eye Makeup Remover

I had the previous YR purple bottle , and after shaking the liquid, it was evident there was mold inside. The mold was thick, cotton like, and disgusting. The sales person denied it was mold, claiming it was normal to see a cloudy liquid. I had been using this YR makeup remover for 10 years, and I can identify sny abnormalities. Now, YR made a new blue bottle makeup remover. The ingredients are identical except for 1 ingredient. I do not trust this brand.


Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand -Galderma Excipial Repair Sensitive Hand cream

This is the first non-steroidal topical cream I've ever used on my eczema (I've had chronic eczema for 40 years) that significantly calmed the skin and had a noticeably soothing effect. I really like it and will try to buy more of at the earliest opportunity.

Moisturizers -BORGHESE -Cura di Vita Protettivo Protective Moisturizer SPF 15

I have been using this item for the last 30 years or so, along with Borghese's Spa Lift for Eyes and Moisture Intensifier in the winter. I have normal, fair skin, which freckles easily in the sun. By using this, I don't have any freckles or lines on my face, no freckles or spots on my hands, where I will also use it if I forgot to bring a stronger sunscreen along. It is one of the few moisturizers that have a sunscreen at all. The SPF is fine unless you are running around outside or lying on beach for hours. Then you should be using SPF 50. If I have suggestions to Borghese about this formula, it would be to up that SPF number and stick some zinc oxide in it. If you have dry or oily skin, you might want something different and I think they have another item they sell for that. As the other reviewer said, it is light. I think that's a good thing. It is quickly absorbed and if you use it over the Intensifier, is very adequate for drying winter conditions. I've also used Lancome, Clinique, Nars, Clé de Peau, Dr Brandt, Murad, PTRoth and others over the years. I always come back to this. For the money, it's the best. Maybe I'm old school but if I don't see results, I am not going to listen to a sales pitches. So I also never use any of the makeup removers any of the cosmetic companies make. Cold cream removes all makeup, including waterproof, and is a moisturizer at night, without drying alcohol in it. Get a small or sample size of Cura di Vita with SPF 15 somewhere, use it for a week or 2 and then decide for yourself.

Liquid -Almay -Clear Complexion Makeup

This has been my go-to foundation since high school (in my early 30s now). It didn't break me out; provided good, buildable coverage; a great color match; a matte finish that helped control oil; and lasted most of the day on my oily skin. It practically checked all my boxes.

However, I picked up a new bottle 1-2 months ago and almost immediately noticed some differences in the formula and overall appearance---at least a shade darker than the ivory 100 that I've used forever; oxidizes upon drydown; sheerer coverage that doesn't layer as well; separates and becomes blotchy on my face after ~4-5 hours of wear, regardless of setting powder used. The main (major) disappointment for me, though, is that within 2-3 days of wearing it, I began to break out pretty badly, especially in places that rarely break out. I also noticed that after washing my makeup off at night, my skin just started looking... bad. Clogged pores, uneven tone, rough texture... my skin looked and felt like sandpaper.

This led me to inspect the labels on the old and new bottles of the foundation, and, lo and behold, they have upped the salicylic acid content from 0.5% to 2.0%! This increase may not seem like much, but for people who regularly use skincare products containing acids/chemicals (like myself), this foundation could possibly interfere with those products and cause reactions/irritation/breakouts. From what I could tell, there was no label on the bottle indicating a new/improved formula, so I wanted to point this out in case it could help those using acids or those with sensitive skin.

Pressed Powders -ColourPop -NO FILTER SHEER MATTE PRESSED POWDER

on 10/5/2018 9:30:00 AM

This product is pointless: it's NOT sheer at all, it adds coverage and cakeyness. I don't feel like it sets my foundation and I don't feel like it takes away shine. Also, the price is expensive, because you only get 5.5g of product! That's the size of a blush! The only positive is the packaging, I think it looks cute. But the powder feels very dollar store.
