Lotions/ Creams -Trader Joe's -Mango Body Butter

on 4/18/2018 5:54:00 PM

This is my favorite so far of the Trader Joe's Body Butters. It's usually out in the summer months, it doesn't not have much of a smell but lets face it Mangos don't have much of a smell so I guess its pretty accurate. It moisturizes really well and I love the orange colored container. I stock up every summer so that I don't run out til the winter scents come out.

I am not happy that this is $10 and didn't love the scent (Orange Blossom Honey) at first and it isn't the greatest moisturizer of all time or anything but its decent. And now that I am at the end of the tube I kinda actually do like the smell now. I probably wont buy again though as I can get other natural body moisturizer for the same price but in much larger tubes.

I got this in Snow and before this I have only used drug store foundation. 20 yrs of drug store foundation, what was i thinking? I am very impressed, it actually for the first time in my life matches me to the color of my neck and covers up so much. I am in love. But even so this is my first time using non drug store makeup so I do want to keep trying new more expensive foundations until i find a holy grail but this is differently a favorite right now.

This wasn't for me. I have rosacea on my cheeks and I had heard some use this for Rosacea but it made my cheeks burn. I had to wash it off. However some probably did soak in and when I woke up the next day my skin somehow looked different and brighter. Even so I can not use this and risk making it worse.


Liquid -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

I was so excited to finally try this foundation. Urban Decay is one of the only high end (ish) makeup brands that isn't severely ramped up here Sweden, which makes UD products pretty affordable in comparison to most other high end brands. For reference, I paid $42 here in Sweden, compared to the $40 listing at sephora.com.

I really appreciate the different shade numbers corresponding to different undertones. More brands should do this. I went with 0.5, which is the lightest shade with cool undertones. Unfortunately, it's not a perfect match for me - it just doesn't look quite right. I think it's the undertone that is the problem, I think it's a little too warm for me. More neutral and peachy than cool and pink. It's not an awful match, just not a perfect one. A few lightning drops from The Body Shop might do wonders - I've yet to try that.

I usually don't like really runny foundations because they are hard to apply - a sponge will take away any coverage, and a brush will often make the application look streaky. This is the first thin foundation that have thoroughly enjoyed the application of. I use a pretty dense buffing brush (think Real Techniques Sculpting brush or Elf's Ultimate Blending brush) and it goes on very nicely. A lot more coverage than you would expect (though still only medium coverage at most) from the consistency, and it never looks streaky. The finish is more dewy than matte, but not extremely so. It looks pretty skin-like, so it definitely lives up to its name.

My problem, apart from the shade not being quite cool enough, is the longevity. It "lifts" pretty early on in my t-zone. Within maybe 4 hours, my t-zone will start to look oiler than I'm used to, and if I touch my skin the foundation all but wipes off. I'm a glasses wearer, and though no foundation has ever stood the test of time around where my glasses rest on my nose, this one does especially bad.

I do really like the initial finish of the foundation, so I'm going to keep trying to find products that work well with it and that can give it a longer wear time. I'll update the review if I do. As if right now, it's a pretty straight forward 3/5. It probably works better on people with normal to dry skin, as opposed to my combo skin.

+ Cruelty free (parent company, L'Oreal, isn't though)
+ Vegan
+ Nice looking see through bottle, good pump
+ Natural but pretty radiant finish
+ Quick and easy to apply pretty flawlessly

- I find 0.5 too warm
- I get oiler in the t-zone than I'm used to
- Doesn't wear very long or very well

An excellent cream for sensitive skin. My skin can get sensitive, and this is so gentle and hydrating to use. You can use it as an eye cream as well. I like the hermetic design of the pump (I hate jar packaging so it's nice to have a pump product). This doesn't feel too heavy or too light, it's just right and calms down my skin.

Treatments (Face) -Dr. Brandt -Laser Tight

I bought this at Marshall's for $19.99 so thought I'd try. Due to the reviews I'm surprised to find that I LOVE this product. I break out at the drop of a dime and this has not irritated my skin at all. The dimethicone as a preservative also makes it wonderful to use before makeup as a primer. This does seem to have an accumulative effect on my skin as it looks better even when I don't have the product on. My oil slick of a face is a little better with this is better for a few hours. I would recommend this skin cocktail if you have aging, oily skin.

This mascara which was suppose to be waterproof was very disappointing. It smudges right away and was almost impossible to get off with cleanser and waterproof eye makeup remover. Not sure how that works. I'm 54

This mascara is suppose to be waterproof but it's not at all. It smudges within the hour of having it on. I love the brush though & it's easy to get lots of lashes in a breeze. Also, it requires a makeup remover to get it off unlike Blinc Amplified Mascara (super waterproof) that comes off with just warm water. I'm 54.


BB Cream -Maybelline -Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

Love this BB cream. It's light but not too light & does blur imperfections and even skin tone. I use it everywhere on my face including my eyelids. I need a bit of concealer for dark parts - ie eye corners and expression lines. That's it. Awesome value and for those Canadians that think it doesn't have spf, it does. Listed as 1st ingredient Titanium dioxide. It doesn't however say SPF on the label.


Lotions/ Creams -Alpha Skin Care -Renewal Body Lotion with 12 AHA

Not sure if this Alpha Skin Care product is the same as mine. I'm from Canada and just purchased Alpha Skin Care Enhanced renewal cream 12 percent AHA. This one appears to have the same ingredients in the same order. I am new to using AHAs and have very dry skin. I was nervous because I already use retin A and Vitamin C 20% and thought my skin would react badly but it didn't. It's a well formulated cream. For my 54 year old skin, I use it every second night alternating with my retin A & I use vit C serum during day. I use it on my face but not my eyelids. I may start using it on my body to firm up skin there too. Great value.


Liquid -Maybelline -Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

I should have listened to our fellow reviewers but i didnt. I wanted to love it, but this foundation emphasizes even slightly dry skin like crazy, even on my combination/oily skin. My skin is tan/olive depending on the season with a strong yellow undertone. I wear a shade 332 in Fit Me, and the Golden 312 is a great match as soon as I apply it, but it oxides for like 30 minutes and once it dries it is 2 shades darker. I tried going up to 310 SunBeige but it is just too pink! I coyldnt find a medium shade that has a yellow undertone in the superstay. Im dissapointed and feel like i wasted my time and money.

I got these in my 2 UD Go-To Colors: Backtalk & 1993 (which I Have in liquid lipsticks, hi-fi lipgloss & regular lipsticks), as well as a mini set liquid lipsticks (4) crimson, amulet, backtalk & purgatory then a sample of Big Bang & I like them but they were $9 each for bTalk & 1993 (Big Bang was free) I don’t remember what I paid for the 4 set. These make my lips dry & the big 1s are nice but the little 1s aren’t airy/mousse-y anymore they are crumbly & dry. These are my go to colors or I wouldn’t have bought them. I don’t know if I’d go for any more colors. They do wear a long time but dry out my lips & the colors are beautiful. Grade: B+

So far so good. I have very dry 54 year old skin and didn't think I would like it because it is so thin and almost more like a serum. I was surprised that it did the job of moisturizing my skin enough and priming it well for my BB cream. I have to use 2 pumps so it probably won't last that long however.
