I /LOVE/ my Curology routine. I’ve never felt more confident in my skin. I’ll definitely be on this plan for a while. I also love the very straight forward emails. I’m always aware of what i’m putting on my skin. Thanks Curology for being the best!!


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

I will start with the packaging which is different than any other. It comes in a bubble-like pot with a twist cap.
The scent is magnificent and extremely strong so for those who don't like strong scents, this is not for you. I don't need to wear perfume because the fragrance is the star of the show.
The cream is easy to Blend and absorbs quickly. What a treat in my Boxycharm Box. I would definitely purchase another one when this runs out.

Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa

on 4/24/2019 2:10:00 PM

foto

The shampoo with this scent does not leave my hair feeling fluffy and clean but weighed down. It was supposed to be a volumizing formula. Mimosa part of scent is very good but the coconut is strong and is what lasts on my hair all day. Hate that and had hoped for more mimosa. The bottle is clear plastic and rather hard to squeeze. I can see this clear plastic not being in good condition for the entire life of the product since the plastic is rather brittle.This is a new line but it's not made by a notoriously natural brand but is a Unilever product so that dampened my enthusiasm for this new product.

Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa

I'm reviewing this on the hand Lotion. This little gem came in my Target Beauty Box and I am very Impressed with this brand.
This is Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Luscious Hydration.
The smell is Floral divine and is Long Lasting. The texture goes on very liquid and takes some time to absorb into the skin but when it does, it leaves your hands feeling super smooth with a wonderful Fragrance.
Love Discovering new Products. I really Recommend this!

Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand -Makeup Eraser - Makeup Eraser

on 4/24/2019 1:33:00 PM

I wish I was the marketing genius who came up with this. I got sucked in by the description - and it was too good to be true.

I am not impressed with the product. It's basically a glorified washcloth made from leftover plush polyester blanket material with finished edges. Sure, it's soft with a nice nap, but it requires rubbing and wiping. It wasn't particularly effective for makeup removal in my experience - stubborn product stayed put and the rest just smeared, and it's hard to get into corners and crevices. Yes, I used it as instructed. And then there's all that residue transfer to the Makeup Eraser itself - it's unhygienic to reuse it and/or I have to spend time cleaning the thing that cleaned my face. Ain't got time for that, LOL!

I have combination and aging skin, so all the tugging, rubbing, digging, and wiping is tough on my face. I suppose if I used cotton pads or wipes on a regular basis and my skin didn't mind, this would be fine. I'll take a good facial cleansing oil/balm over this mechanical makeup removal tool any day.

Top/Base Coats -Unlisted Brand -INM - Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat

on 4/24/2019 1:30:00 PM

foto

I don't know why I haven't just bought a new top coat, maybe out of laziness - but it's worse than almost any other top coat I've used, so it actually wastes time. As someone else pointed out, maybe they changed the formulation on this. This stuff sucks. It peels off and it makes my nail polish chip after like a day. Even if I just do a coat or two of clear it just peels off.


Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand -Makeup Eraser - Makeup Eraser

I bought my first set of 2 about 10 years ago and just recently repurchased because they had lost their edging and were looking old. I like these so much better than Jane Iredale Magic Mitt because these are a lot softer and easier on skin. They do remove makeup but not so good on all eye makeup especially waterproof. Very sturdy and plush. Easily removes foundation and sunscreen. Two sides: 1 microfiber side and 1 side that has longer loops supposedly best for exfoliation. I hardly ever use the long fibered side and I get nice exfoliation from microfiber side. Way better than a normal wash cloth. I get a thrill out of seeing all my makeup on the wipe. I can easily toss these in the washer or wash with soap or face cleanser to get them clean (for short term). I always wash them in the washer after using a couple of days. No special wash instructions, and I often throw these in the dryer. On their own they take a little while to dry.

Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Crazy Rumors HibisKiss Flavored Lip Color

foto

I used these years ago and LOVED them, but stopped using them when they became somewhat difficult to find. But now, there's this lovely used book shop in Charlotte, NC that carries the whole range and I'm so happy, because it's reignited my love for these wonderful tinted balms.

I picked up the shade Tropical, which appears to be a dark berry shimmer in the tube, but translates to a luminous pink flush on the lips. I have been going for a very minimal makeup look lately - just mascara, a little blush, and this balm, and it really makes me look so fresh and awake. I've used other colors in the range - Coral (a lighter version of Tropical), and Sunset (a pretty, almost coppery shade that looks great when my skin is a touch more tan). I love them all, and now that I have access to every shade, I'll be picking them up.

I love the formula. I've always found these to be very hydrating, and surprisingly long-lasting for such a silky balm. It really glides on the lips. The scent / taste is a sweet hibiscus (which my husband LOVES), and it's not cloying or artificial-tasting. Even after the creaminess wears down, my lips still feel hydrated, and there's a touch of shimmer left behind. Also, it's got titanium dioxide, which can act as a sunblock.

The packaging is like a typical lip balm tube. (It used to be slimmer, but I actually prefer the bigger tube.) You get a little over 4 grams of product (4.4ml), which is about the same as a typical tube of balm, and slightly more than the average lipstick. You won't get a precise lip line with this, but it's just a tinted balm, so you won't really need that kind of precision. However, sometimes the balm doesn't want to retract, so I need to push it down with my finger, so one lippie off on packaging for that.

This seems to run for $5 across the board, which is a little more than I used to pay for it, but that was a while ago so a price increase was to be expected. I don't mind, as it's truly a fantastic product that I keep coming back to over and over. This baby stays in my Kavu bag or my pocket at all times. I'll repurchase this shade and buy the other shades in the range. Anything that's kept me coming back for this long will always stay in my HG list.

Also, Crazy Rumors is a vegan / cruelty-free brand, so bonus points for that!

Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand -Foreo LUNA fofo Smart Facial Cleansing Brush

on 4/24/2019 8:23:00 AM

This is one of the worst purchases I have done lately.

I was excited about testing this new Foreo brand, but my Luna Fofo stopped working after about 150 usages (not 400 as promised by the manufacturer). When I opened the battery slot (another fun thing is to find a screwdriver for this device) the batteries were corroded and wet, the water must have been leaking inside. But Foreo says on its website that Luna Fofo is waterproof! After I researched the web a little bit I found out that a lot of people have experienced the same problem with Fofo. In each case Foreo agrees to make "a huge exception ONLY for you" and send you another device even though it is not covered by warranty, Obviously Foreo knows that the device is defective, but they still continue selling it. This is false advertising 101. Shame on them.

Please dont waste your money on this useless device.

Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Invisible Zinc - Face & Body Sunscreen SPF 30+

on 4/24/2019 7:42:00 AM

foto

I've been using this for about 7 years, along with the tinted daywear.
They are all excellent and provide the absolute gold standard in physical sunscreen.
Don't expect a watery, silicone-y product. This is an actual physical layer of protection, which looks beautiful, glowing and luminous on the skin.
For face I use the tinted version, but I have also just mixed in some foundation to the untinted version. It's good to play around and have an open mind.
I apparently, and consistently, look about 8 years young than I am. I do credit this product with some of that.

Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand -Invisible Zinc - Tinted Daywear - Medium

on 4/24/2019 7:39:00 AM

foto

I've been using this product (and other invisible zinc products, such as the waterproof one for my chest, and the untinted one which I mix with this, the medium tint, for a lighter shade) for about 7 years.

This product both looks beautiful on my skin (dewy/glowy, a perfect golden tint to match my mid-toned olive undertoned skin), and provides me with the very best sun protection I believe is available in the market.
When my face is going to be receiving a lot of direct light, this is what I trust. It forms an actual physical (though beautiful) protective layer on the surface of the skin, protecting against sun but also free radical damage which the chemical sunscreens can actually contribute to.

It does go on a bit 'heavy' but it settles down and feels good to me. I would encourage persevering beyond initial impressions.

Oh and I apparently look consistently about 8 years younger than my age...

Masks -Unlisted Brand -May Lindstrom- The Problem Solver

on 4/24/2019 1:14:00 AM

Overpriced for the ingredients. I think the main ingredient doing the heavy lifting in this formula is the vitamin c.... which, yes, comes in a powder form. Any vitamin c will brighten the skin and so on.

The first time I used this, i think my complexion was nice afterwards. The subsequent times i used it, i think it broke me out. FYI I've never kept this on for the recommended 30 or 40 minutes bexause my skin is on the sensitive side. I recommend always patch testing and starting below the recommended times, working your way up.

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -Heimish All Clean Balm

on 4/23/2019 10:34:00 PM

foto

I love the new flip cap packaging!

This is my first cleansing balm ive tried and i love it. Ive always used cleansing oils and since finishing up my bottle i decided to get this. I was contemplating on this one or the Banilla Zero and i saw a review saying Heimish has a thinner oil consistency so i went for it. This smells really nice, like fruity and a little herbally. Nothing too medicinal like Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil(smells so bad to me)

This melts in contact and takes off all my makeup. I do still do a double cleanse after just so i wash off the coconut oil in this, but other than that the ingredients in this is awesome. Again the packaging is very pretty and sits really nicely in my bathroom. Theres nothing i can say bad about this. The price is affordable also. Id repurchase!
