Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -By Wishtrend - Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum

I concur with most thing mentioned by the previous reviewer. This is a potent and affordable Vitamin C serum that is easy to incorporate into your skincare regime.

It comes in a tinted glass bottle with a built-in dropper. The texture of the serum is runny, water-like consistency and finishes off with a slightly sticky feeling. It does not burn nor does it cause the skin to feel tight at all. One thing about all active skincare products is that you have to finish it quickly upon opening- ideally within 3 months.

I apply this for 2 consecutive days before moisturiser and you can see the noticeable brightening (eg; glow) effects.

I highly recommend this product!

These get every single hair I pluck..not missing one! Great size, great slant, and great assortment of colors! The lighted magnifying mirror and plastic tube case that mine came with are very handy as well...definitely recommended!

I will repurchase this, the beauty blender really makes foundation and primer look amazing. I use it damp and I need only a very small amount of foundation and it blends so nicely with this.

If you have puffy eyes from crying or too much salt, this will work, but it does nothing for dark circles or wrinkles (it doesnt promote use for this). I heard it's good for cellulite but it didn't do anything for mine.

Picked this up in despair when my hair turned to frizzy straw this summer - too much sun, too much humidity etc.
I picked up a little plastic ampoule for cheap at Shopper's Drug Mart, figuring what the heck....
Well I was very happily surprised - a 5 minute application turned my locks into well conditioned wavy ringlets - I have very curly hair, and I found I liked the look so much I didn't even need to bother setting it or using any heat on it....figured maybe I should give my hair a rest and just put it up in a casual chignon twist.
This worked really well (I always liked the Greek goddess look you see in museums and figured this gave me Greek goddess locks ha ha in my mind), and since I only used half of the ampoule, I'm going to use the rest and then buy the full size ASAP.
Thank you MUA, I would never have picked this up without your great advice!

Lipstick -MAC -Love Drought

on 8/16/2018 10:50:00 PM

This lipstick came in the MAC Nude Lip Trio. Being the nude lip fanatic I am, I was excited to try this out. Unfortunately, it is a soft, rosy plum with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. I would not describe this as a nude and I feel like the metallicness of it can be unflattering on most people. I will not purchase.

This powder is absolutely awful!! Not sure what is in this powder but it burns my face so bad. For several months I could not figure out what was causing the awful burn!! It's this powder!! . it's been about a week since I discontinued using & threw this in the garbage, my face is still a little red but it's on the mends after I quit using this. If you have sensitive skin stay far far away from this product.


Moisturizers -Pro Activ -Complexion Perfecting Hydrator

on 8/16/2018 9:49:00 PM

This is a moisturizer for acne prone skin. It keeps skin soft and supple. Even though I stopped using the 3 step system, I continue using this moisturizer as it does not clog up my skin. On winter nights, I apply a thicker layer before going to bed and wake up with soft, supple skin. This is not a heavy moisturizer and more suited for combination and oily skins. Dries well.


Liquid -Unlisted Brand -Moonshot Face Perfection Liquid

I did quite a lot of research for this foundation and the reviews are evenly split between 2 groups. 1st group of people are complaining about this light coverage, poor longevity and poor oil control. 2nd group of people are raving over its 2nd skin effect and moisturizing factor. Hence, you'll need to consider all these factor + your skin type before you make your purchase.

I bought this with the expectation with 2nd skin effect (cuz I do have a couple of medium - full coverage foundation) and it meets my expectation. It is s liquidy and it adheres well to my skin like a magnet upon application. It was dewy upon application and quickly set to satin finish. There's a scent to it and it does lingers on for quite some time, hence if this bothers you, skip this.

There's a term "it looks like my skin, but better!" This is exactly how I'd describe this foundation. I love it! Its oil control ability is pretty...acceptable (as compare to a certain drug-store light weight finish liquid foundation) and lasted me a good 4-5 hours before I start blotting. I have oily T-zone and SG is really hot & humid all year round. This is not the foundation to-go when you are looking to be out the full day, but its good for a dinner date or a quick shopping.Application of primer and fixing powder will help to lengthen its longevity.

This foundation does not blur out pores, nor accentuate it. It does not sink into your fine line. It barely oxidise. And it's pretty moisturising, hence its is really good for dry skin type. I wouldn't recommend this for oily skin type though.

So I guess this is pretty good and I'll reach for this if I need light coverage and I don't want to splurge too much for high-end foundations. Oh! Did I mention that I love its dropper for dispensing of the foundation instead if the usual pump.

As a guide, my skin tone is usually N23 or Sand for most foundation and this foundation shade 301 matches like a dream!

Foundations -La Prairie -Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation Sheer

on 8/16/2018 9:01:00 PM

This is the best foundation I've ever had.
The coverage is amazing and you can build it by adding more layers for even better results. You will never feel cakey by wearing even 3 layers of this foundation (usually 2 layers are more than enough).
It is pricey of course, but only a small drop can cover a very large area on your face so you don't really run out fast of this foundation.
The concealer on the top is just heaven-sent. It can cover anything and it does feel very light on your skin.
I will def buy it again !

Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Lansinoh Lanolin

This is a wonderful lip balm, much less greasy yet more effective than Aquaphor or Vaseline for me. I also use it as a moisturiser for my very dry skin (face and body) and it works wonderfully, it feels more emollient than a lot of other occlusives, so it doesn't just seal in moisture it feels like it actually provides hydration too! Fragrance free and lasts a very long time.

Conditioner -Garnier -Whole Blends - Nourishing Avocado Oil and Shea Butter

on 8/16/2018 8:49:00 PM

This conditioner is fabulous, it's creamy, thick, buttery and makes my fine, dry, wavy hair feel and look super shiny and bouncy, the only thing I don't care for is the smell, specially considering that the honey and the shea butter formulas smell so good. I air dried my hair and it looks great. no frizz, shiny and lots of body.
The next day my hair is super soft and shiny, the ends are soft and healthy looking, I have old balyage that I covered and you can't even tell that the ends are so dry and frizzy.

Treatments (Face) -Sunday Riley -Luna Sleeping Night Oil

on 8/16/2018 8:48:00 PM

This product just didn't do anything for me and was a disappointment overall. And I'm a fan of Sunday Riley's products. Good Genes, Ceramic Slip, Tidal, and CEO are all favorites of mine. Great results for my combo-oily skin. But when I tried the Luna Sleeping Oil, there was no noticeable difference in my skin's appearance whatsoever. This stuff just isn't for me.

And it just sits on top of my skin as a greasy layer. I dislike the way it feels.

I wouldn't buy this product again.

Foundations -Rimmel -Clean Finish

I kinda bought this on a whim because it was so cheap.
I found it for like $2.80 at big lots and it looked like a pretty good match with my skin tone so i figured why the hell not? I got the #240 “soft beige” shade and it went perfectly with my skin tone. I own their matte mousse foundation in “true ivory” and like it but usually use it when i get all dolled up and wanted something more neutral and lighter for the off days. Idk about the rest but going off of what im seeing in alot of these reviews I guess I must have gotten lucky or gotten a bottle with a better batch in it coz it didn’t oxidize on me and stayed true to its shade indoors and out in the natural light and it Applied nicely to the skin. It went on rather smoothly and didn't cake up or crack it kinda just melted right in and gave me that “second skin” look. The coverage was also better than decent. I had a few dark spots and minor reddish post acne marks and it covered it all nicely. (I used the Kat von D lock it edge foundation brush btw ) Another pro is that it hasn’t irritated my skin or caused any break outs and i’ve worn it for a few weeks now so I think it’s safe to say that It isn’t one of those pore clogging mask like foundations atleast not for me anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the little spatula that comes attached to the top can be a good thing if you are the type that likes to take the amount of product that you are going to use and put it on the back of your hand and picking it up as you go with a beauty blender or brush or if you just want to use it to dab a tiny amount around your face and then blend it out. Only complaint is why the holes in it though? I don’t see the point of that but its not a big deal to me.
Overall i’d say for the price paid it’s a good foundation. It has better than light coverage that doesn’t feel heavy but still leaves you looking flawless yet natural and doesn’t irritate the skin or oxidize. If I ran out I think i would consider buying it again

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Mirvaso by Galderma

Please be very careful before using this product for rosacea redness. It works for about 8 hours, then sends you into misery with rebound and making the redness and flushing much worse than baseline. There is a small minority, going by reviews, who do OK with this product but the majority has their rosacea worsened. I had 24 hours of full face burning and flushing and sunburn-coloured redness after use. Check hundreds of reviews of Mirvaso for rosacea here in this post I made, tracking reviews over a long time, and they are mostly negative. Be warned and informed before using this cream http://scarletnat.blogspot.com/2013/12/mirvaso-inventory-of-patient-responses.html
