Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Brush On Block SPF 30 Mineral Powder Sunscreen

I am the type of person that forgets to put sunscreen on unless I am purposely going without makeup for a day outdoors. I do make an effort to wear sunscreen under my makeup but truthfully that is only when I know I will be exposed to the sun. When I saw this powder sunscreen in a two-pack at Costco I snatched it up and immediately threw one in my purse, problem solved! Now I have sunscreen with me all the time. There is a locking mechanism on the cylinder and the brush has a retractable sleeve to protect and keep it in shape. The brush is not scratchy and works well to deposit and blend product on skin. It is a broad spectrum SPF30 mineral powder that claims to be sweat and water resistant. The only downside to this is that it’s hard to tell how much has been applied. I pretty much do my face in quadrants, shaking the tube between each section to make sure enough product comes out. Would I recommend this sunscreen? Absolutely. It has become my safety net and it hasn’t failed me yet.


Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Rahua Voluminous Shampoo

on 7/17/2018 2:46:00 AM

This, for years, until this month, was my absolute holygrail haircare product.
Unfortunately this year, this brand mades some bad changes to their formulas.

This shampoo specifically changed colors, from amber to green. The new formula is not as good, or organic/natural as the old one. This new formula contains sodium alpha olefin sulfonate, which is used in many (read not organic or natural products) to create foam. This was i imagine a cost cutting measure for the company. Very unfortunate since it alreadh charges high prices. But id rather they increased the price than change the formula.

This is a hg for me! I am getting oilier skin by the year and this stuff works and feels so fresh and cooling!! I have the original formula. It wouldn’t be good for dry skin. I love the feeling of a good face wash followed by Sea Breeze 😎...try it! An oldie but a goodie.


Foundations -Unlisted Brand -CYO-Long Lasting Lifeproof Foundation

on 7/16/2018 8:59:00 PM

This review is based off only wearing twice so it is somewhat of a first impression and will update if need be, but honestly I can tell that this is a fantastic foundation. My skintype is sensitive,acne prone, prone to dehydration, lots of redness and scarring from previous acne breakouts. I decided to buy this foundation after seeing a few good reviews on YouTube- and I figured for $7 if it ended up being crap I wouldn't have lost too much. Boy am I glad I gave this foundation a try! It definitely has a medium- high medium coverage. I typically don't go for full coverage but I am sure this can be built up to being very close to full coverage. The shade I have is "103" which suits my lighter skin tone (I have warm-beige undertones). In the winter I may need to buy 102. Anyway, this foundation is also weightless and extremely comfortable to wear. The finish is satin/ very skin like. I think if you have very oily skin or prefer a matte finish this is NOT going to be your cup of tea. The wear time of this foundation for me was about 8 hours and I did touch up once. It did start to look more worn as the day went on, but I feel that it broke down very grasciously. I never felt that I looked like a greaseball. I haven't experienced any breakouts yet and from looking at the ingredients list on cosDNA.com I don't think I should have any problems with that. Overall this is my new go to foundation! So impressed, beats my $45 Juice Beauty foundation.


Eyes -Unlisted Brand -One Two Cosmetics Magnetic eyelashes

Pleaseeee do not waste money on these!!! As other raters have said, it takes forever for the lashes to arrive in the first place. Like a month. Once they do, you will go through the long process of trying to figure out how to use them. And once you do figure out how to use them, you can expect to throw them out after about three wears. Literally the $3 glue-on lashes from the drugstore last me ten times longer. After a few wears, the lash fibers start to fall out and become misshapen and they are impossible to remove without ruining them and your own natural lashes. Would be ok if these lashes were $5 a set because they’re literally disposable but $60-$100?? No way.

Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand -Jao Goe Oil

on 7/16/2018 7:38:00 PM

This stuff is freaking amazing!❤️❤️❤️

I randomly picked up the tester of this stuff while shopping with my brother in Toronto at Anthropologie (mini vacay to visit him). Once I squeezed out a dime sized amount; I quickly realized that I could not only treat my parched hands to a moisture drink, but also my arms and legs and hair flyaways (a little goes a very LONG way).... The smell is intoxicating (Tahitian monoi). The remainder of the evening I couldn't help but feel how soft and silky I was.... It was incredible! I literally kept stroking my arms and legs people! Lol. This feeling lasted till the next day up to my shower. After breakfast, I told my brother we were going back to the store cause I needed this oil in my life!

Goe oil is made from a combination of 28 skin perfecting plant, fruit and flower oils/butters. It absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling incredibly soft, smooth and radiant. It can be used all over! Body, cuticles, hair, feet the list is endless!


Hair Color -Unlisted Brand -Cover Your Gray Fill-in Powder

I tried this out to help cover grey, but it's meant just for the scalp, I think. It does transfer throughout the day. The brush that comes with it sheds. It doesn't cover up your grey hair completely, although it does help blend them in with the surrounding area.

I think the application is much more comfortable with the spray-on root concealers with my dark brown hair and fair scalp, rather than the powders. The results are just as good, too. I'd skip this one in the future.

Quite a nice hair colour that delivers a permanent result without damaging the hair much. No strong smell observed.

Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-exfoliating Shampoo

on 7/16/2018 7:39:00 AM

This has to be the most expensive shampoo I have ever bought, but I did so because I am basically addicted to Head&Shoulders shampoos and have been so since my teens. If I go for more than a week without a Head&Shoulder wash, my scalp is dry, itchy and full of flakes. When I first moved to Japan, more than 20 years ago, I would stock up in Head&Shoulders shampoos whenever I traveled abroad, before I realized that the geniuses at P&G were actually selling it here, but under the brand name Head Spa. I tried to contacting the P&G customer service here in both Japanese and English, with no success. Great products, lousy staff. So having heard reviewers rave about a natural shampoo that achieves the same results, I just had to try it. It smells nice, but I feel like it really dries my hair out. Nothing a good hair pack can`t fix, but to be safe, I wouldn`t use it more than once a month. The product is really watery, minty smelling and feels nice on the scalp. It doesn`t foam a lot, so I feel like perhaps I am using too much to get my scalp cleaned?! I don`t know, but if I were to use it more often, I would use a jar up rather quickly. I don`t think I would repurchase, because it`s really expensive (58 bucks on Beautybay), and I much prefer my experience with Chronologist from Kerastase. That is cheaper, smells really great and exfoliates without drying out. If the Briogeo shampoo works as well as Head&Shoulders to help stabilize my scalp, I can`t really say, because I don`t use it all that often (too drying and too expensive). I`ve been looking for a good replacement for Head&Shoulders, because I really hate P&G, but so far, no luck. If you know anything, please shoot me a message here. Thanks.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Refresh Skin Therapy Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel

on 7/16/2018 7:19:00 AM

This is a strong exfoliating treatment, although I wouldn't say it's quite as professional strength or dangereously strong as the packaging implies. It does work and rinses off easily after the recommended 1-3 minutes. The only reason I wouldn't buy this again is because there are other treatments out there that do the same thing, and the company's marketing feels really spammy to me.

This is a good, unscented sunscreen for sensitve skin. That said, I did find it left a slight whitish and tacky finish, so I would not purchase this again.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum

Meh. I keep buying increasingly
expensive products, hoping they'll somehow take my (already pretty good) skin to some sort of higher nirvana plane of glowiness. I bought into the ITG hype--might I note that they get so much stuff for free, and it's unwise to completely trust them when they recommend an absurdly expensive product. Is this product good? Sure, I guess. Is it even better when you don't have to pay for it? Of course. Is it good when you factor in that it costs double or triple or quadruple what many other really good oils cost? Naaaaaaah.

There was once a time when $90 seemed like an absurd amount to spend on a serum..I miss those days. Anyway. This was like..fine. I have dry skin, not blemish prone or especially sensitive, though I do have some reddish rosiness on my nose and cheeks, which is either natural coloring or very mild rosacea. It's a dry oil, as others have noted. Doesn't moisturize my skin esp. well-for comparison, Sunday Riley Juno and Artemis both felt like they moisturized a lot more. This didn't really do anything special to my skin. It looked clear and slightly glowy, but then it always kinda looks that way when I remember to stick to a decent skincare routine. Maybe it's worthwhile if you have very reactive, blemish prone, or oily skin, but for me it was a big fat meh. Would not repurchase. Think hard before you buy this one- think reeeeally hard.

Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand -Sol de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

PROS

- long lasting scent
- absorbs quickly

CONS

- price
- formula sucks

COMMENTS: As a lotion, it’s not worth the price (I bought mine for 20% off from Dermstore, though). I don’t feel like it does anything. However, I buy it for the scent and nothing more. The body spray isn’t anywhere near as potent as the lotion, so this is what I prefer to use. I apply over a more preferred body lotion and only to my upper body. This acts as my perfume for the day. I can even smell it on my clothes.

I was not a fan of this, even though the packaging is adorable, with a beautiful little box and heavy glass jar. I have the colour "Coral" which is indeed a coral colour. The formula is quick sticky, like an opaque lip gloss, whereas I was expecting more of a tinted balm or moisturising colour. Not for me, I'm afraid.
