It is way too strong for me. I got it as a present if I wear it people start to cough. Don't get it.


Bath Treatments -Fresh -Sugar cubes

on 1/18/2018 12:55:00 PM

I started using the Fresh sugar cubes but not in my bath. I'm into exfoliating so I decided to use them in the shower. I would shower first then break one in my hand and begin to scrub in a circular motion on my knees and elbows because they need the most help. I did try this method once on my whole body but it would be very costly. I really like the faint fresh smell after using on my body.


Eyes -It Cosmetics -Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer

Love the it lash primer .I actually really like the thin applicator brush and use it on my eyebrows as a filler. I apply using really light strokes in a upward motion .,beginning in the front and slowly working my way to the end of my brow.There are many ways to apply it . I just like to concentrate on the areas where the hair on my eyebrows is sparse .When the product is almost gone and slightly dried out it really looks more realistic when applying to eyebrows. I love the applicator brush so much I keep it long after the product is gone . I cleani it off and dip it into mascara and other products.

Highlighters -Becca -Shimmering Skin Perfecter Liquid -Champagne Pop

This is such a beautiful liquid highlighter. The color is a beautiful peachy gold on me, but I find though that it doesn't last very long on my combo/oily skin. I've tried this as an all over shimmering primer and I do not recommend it. I felt like it made my foundation slip off much more quickly. So I prefer using it a highlight on the cheeks or as a liquid highlight base and then top it off with a powder highlight. Really pretty but I probably won't repurchase this again.

Foundations -Clio -Kill Cover Realest Wear Moist Foundation (SPF35/PA++)- No. 3

Okay I am a makeup artist and could not find a foundation for myself that is full coverage and gives enough moisture. I found this quickly looked online and grabbed 2 bottles $40 each but it was worth it. This is the very best I have found ever it's more like a professional foundation far superior to North American brands, you don't need very much at all a little goes a very long way and the result is it covers my sun damage spots and acne scars and my dark undereye area no need for concealer with this it leaves a smooth dewy finish and my large pores are gone it's pretty flawless and I don't feel coated in makeup either, it lasts all day doesn't rub off onto clothing very easily. But here's the thing the shades are very very pale I had to mix a very dark foundation with this one to get a match and in the summer I had to apply a light layer of a dark foundation overtop but it's still worth it it's really the best. I'm warm toned with yellow undertones so Asian foundations great for me I can never find a foundation that's warm and yellow toned everything looks pink or purple but not this they have different tones so look at their chart first. If I apply it without mixing a dark foundation in I look like a ghost so if u are very very pale u will love this but it's still worth it having to mix it oh and my big problem is my fine lines this doesn't make them worse it smooths them out but sometimes I dab jojoba oil on them after applying and if they were showing they go away!

Liquid -Maybelline -Fit Me! Dewy/Hydrate and Smooth (formerly Fit Me)

on 1/18/2018 12:29:00 PM

I have terribly dry but generally good skin (not much to cover up) so I found this foundation to suite me pretty well. Im an nc 30-35 in Mac (depending in the time of year) and the shades 220 and 240 suite me pretty well, alone or mixed together. It stays on well through out the day, doesn't transfer or crease, has medium but build-able coverage and looks incredibly natural. The consistency is a bit runny so its very easy to blend into the skin, even with just my fingers. And because it's runny, it's easy to pour out too much which is why I wish it came with a pump. My mom in her 60s also uses this and she loves it.

Primer/ Corrector -Clarins -Instant Light Complexion Illuminating Base

I have this in 01 Rose (Palest) and it’s a gorgeous illuminating cream that gives a subtle non-glittery sheen to your skin. Looks fantastic with any foundation or even just on its own! Smells divine, lovely texture but to be honest it’s not great for longevity or oil control by the end of the day so would not recommend for those with oily skin. It comes in 3 shades - Rose, Peach & Gold. One tube seems to last many months and has a handy pump dispenser. Great for travel. Not the best primer out yet there but lovely for those who want a natural glowy look.

Skincare - Face -Cetaphil -Redness Relieving Night Moisturizer

The first time I bought this product I was experiencing a lot of winter dryness on my face mostly around my nose, eyes, and forehead. The moisturizer I was currently using was more for oily skin types so it gave me a lighter moisturization. So I started looking online for something that was very moisturizing but wouldn't cause my skin to breakout or get irritated, and after some searching online I found this one. I noticed it had a lot of great ingredients [Niacinamide, licorice extract (listed as 'dipotassium glycyrrhizate), shea butter, ceramides] and it's fragrance free.

During the winter months I tend to get dry patches around my nose, eyes, and forehead. So since my skin leans slightly toward the oily side I usually don't apply this all over my face, but what I'll do is I will first apply my light moisturizer all over my face then I'll take the Cetaphil moisturizer and use it as a "spot treatment" on my dry areas. I really like the pump-style dispenser which helps keep the ingredients in stable condition, and small amount of this moisturizer goes a long way. When I applied it to my skin it felt very moisturizing but not too heavy or greasy. I was so relieved that this moisturizer didn't irritate my skin or cause me to breakout! I have since finished my first bottle of this product and have purchased another, I would definitely buy it again!

Pros: Not too heavy, Very moisturizing, Fragrance free, Good packaging, Good ingredients [Niacinamide, licorice extract (listed as 'dipotassium glycyrrhizate), shea butter, ceramides]

Cons: None that I noticed.

Please understand that my experience with this product may be different from yours.





Shampoo -Marc Anthony -bye bye frizz shampoo

on 1/18/2018 12:07:00 PM

I can't remember how I liked the shampoo but I the conditioner is great! I used it on my dry damaged bleached hair after bleach had ruined my hair by causing it to melt and nothing was helping. This and coconut oil gave me even better hair than before the damage. No other conditioner was helping this one always smooths and softens my hair and gives it a healthy shine and movement. However I wouldn't use this as a remedy again for bleach damage I have found much more appropriate products made for that now but would use it with them. Now since this site won't let me add a review for the 30 frizz free treatment I'll do it here it's good on curly frizzy hair I used it on my daughter that has crazy triangles hair it turned it to silk no tangles I tried and it just made it gross and dry and tangled and if u colour ur hair be aware it will lighten ur hair colour I already knew that would happen so wasn't surprised when my brown lowlights turned orange I wouldn't recommend it on coloured hair or bleached hair made my daughters curly frizzy tangled hair silk like made my soft hair straw like and tangled.


Lipstick -L'Oreal -Jennifer's Nude

I love many things about this lipstick: the price, the colour (which is a perfect pinky nude), and the texture/appearance of this lipstick (shiny, a bit sheer, hydrating). The one problem with this lipstick is it has that artificially floral, old lady perfume smell. I don't notice it too much once I'm wearing it, but while I'm applying it the smell is overwhelming. I find it so overpowering and off-putting that even though I really enjoy the look and wear of this lipstick, I will look for a less smelly alternative when I run out.

I got this in #02 Red. It settles a bit into dry patches but its not drying and it is very comfortable, feels like nothing on the lips. Its a very natural tint and it gives the lips a healthy flush. The skinny applicator also provides a mess-free application.


Scrubs -Unlisted Brand -Saturday Skin- Rub A Dub Refining Peel Gel

on 1/18/2018 11:33:00 AM

I really wanted to love this peel and at first I did. Using it was easy and it felt really nice using it on my face. This felt like a much more gentle physical exfoliator- so many can seem too rough for my sensitive skin. I also like how this doesn't have any overwhelming fragrance. Once I rinsed it off my skin initially felt very soft and clean but shortly after it left my skin feeling very dry and flaky. I found the culprit- denatured alcohol is one of the first ingredients. I am so bummed that they included that because otherwise the formula is amazing- lots of peptides! My skin just cannot handle the denatured alcohol- it leaves it feeling red, dry, and very flaky after using products that contain a significant amount of it. I have been impressed with other Saturday Skin products and I love how they are affordable and also use the airless jars for packaging their Featherweight Face Cream. This one is a no for me. My more detailed review is here:




Treatments (Eye) -Deciem -The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

on 1/18/2018 11:24:00 AM

foto

First off, unlike some of the reviewers on here, I am not taking off lippies for this product's "failure" to get rid of my dark circles. No topical product can do that, people! Neither does this one claim to, actually. So, please stop.

However, I just don't get this serum. The texture is weird and I don't understand how one is supposed to use it. It creates a weird film on skin, so applying anything over it either causes it to ball up, or feels like it's just sitting on top of it without absorbing into the skin. Over lighter serums or on it's own its WAAAY too drying... Yes, you do get the tightening sensation, but I wouldn't say it takes away the puffiness, and it makes me suspect it's not the caffeine, it's that weird gel-like texture that is doing the tightening.. I get the same results from a cold water compress (wet a small cloth or tea towel with cold water and gently press onto your eye area and hold for a couple of minutes).

I got this in a Black Friday set, so can't return it. Oh well.
