BB Cream -Kanebo - KATE Mineral Cover BB Gel Cream SPF30 PA++
taliaseki 5/13/2013 11:50:00 AM
i have this one in b shade which is lightest. my skin is light but this was too light for me. it is sheer so being a bit lighter would not be a problem but this is whitish and makes me look ghosthish. maybe it is designed to cover yellow tones and i am too pinkish for it. any way pros light and sheer, not oily and did not break my acne prone skin. has a good spf cons does not have much coverage staying powder is almost zero. does not stick to your skin. i can hardly keep it on my nose. does no help to cover or calm redness on my skin which was my main issue. i can say garnier bb cream is much better than it in terms of calming redness and having an even skin tone. looks cakey with powder on. i bought it because of good reviews here but totally disappointed. I bought it from ebay as it is not available in my country. I thought item is not popular enough to have fakes around but i may be wrong.
Moisturizers -Nuxe - Creme Fraiche de Beaute Light
taliaseki 9/4/2012 10:33:00 AM
Well, moisturizing, mattifying and calming. It is like L'Occitane - Rice Ultra-Matte Face Fluid but moisturizes efficently which rice fluid cannot. I would rate it 5 lippies as a moisturizer but it balls up. Maybe mine have waited long on the shelves. The other users do not mention issue. But balling up is something i cannot forgive so my thumb is down.
It is a harsh scrub and makes my sensitive face red after using. but it really takes off dead cells. I bought bioderma hydrabio scrub which has smaller particles and more gentle. and also very moisturizing.
Cleansers -Christian Dior - dior make up remover cleansing oil
taliaseki 8/25/2012 5:42:00 AM
pros: It takes of all makeup. cons: It does not rinse off. Make up goes but a layer of oil stays. So i have to wash my face with a foam cleanaser after using it. i have used MAC shisheido and precleanse before and MAC seems to be best in cleaning and rinsing off.
I really makes a matt and smooth velvety makeup base. But it does not give any moisturizing. I have an oily but dry acne prone skin and need oil to decrease moisture to increase. when I use it with other moisturizers it does not mattify as it does when used alone. So i will ot purchase. Search is not over for me.
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - Rice Ultra-Matte Face Fluid

well, i bought it on the search for something mattifying. But i live in a dry climate so need efficient mositurizing. this one is not as mattifying as cellex seboregulator or bioderma sebium pore refiner but moisturizes better than them. still i need better moisturing. so search is not over. I will try nuxe fraiche light and write a review for it as well.
I really do not understand what it makes. there are better leave on conditioners, better frizz easers, etc. I use it after straightening to frizz ease but bed head after party is better.
well it is is nice mask. It makes my hair soft, takes off some of the freeze, looking it healthier. But i use elseve masks as daily conditioner which i buy from supermarket and they make the trick and i will be paying much lower.
Skincare - Face -Cellex-C - Clear Complexion Seboregulator
taliaseki 8/25/2012 5:12:00 AM
pros: helps sebum regulation not a miracle but works cons: it has menthol in, which is drying i guess. i have a oily but dehydrated skin and this gives no moisturization at all. the packing is not a pump but a big jar which is not hygenic. i will not be buying again.
Liquid -By Terry - Cover Expert Perfecting Fluid Foundation
taliaseki 6/21/2012 8:06:00 AM
Well, it has a good cover and nice finish especially with wet sponge. But it transfers and oxidizes.I will stich to double wear i guess.
well, i am writing this review in astonishment. I have never used tinted moisturizersbefore. I have a an oily acne scarred sensisitive skin that becomes red so easiliy in seboreic areas. so i have to use fullcover and longstay foundations like estee lauder double wear or by terry cover expert daily. My lightest daily make up is a lancome mineral powder with a strong kabuki. Today in lunch time i went to sports club and swimmed and has some steam and when i got out i have noticed i do not have my make up purse with me and i do not have even a moisturizer. i rush into a market on the way back work to buy a cheap moisturizer to save my day. This one was cheap enough and i did not expect more than some moisturizing and slightest cover on my reddened skin would be a great extra. I tried it on and shocked. It is very sheer but evened out my skin more than many medium cover foundations. It is moisturizing and sun protection is an extra. i will keep that one at my sports bag for good.
Sunscreen -Neova - z-silc sunblock spf30 (ProCyte)
taliaseki 3/26/2012 4:58:00 PM
well, it is a healty sunscreen option. makes a little white cast,not a big issue; dries matte but makes my oily skin even oilier in a few hours. so i wil not purchase it again.
Treatments -Goldwell - Rich Repair 60 Second Treatment
taliaseki 3/26/2012 4:54:00 PM
well, worst hair treatment after that pureology disappoinment. I put this on at the shower after shampoo and it does not soften my hair. i cannot take my fingers through my hair even before i rinse it. I makes my hair dry and crunchy (when compared to other masks i use; penetraitt by sebastian, elseve color mask, protein fx etc.) It is only superior to putting on nothing.
well, best mineral makeup so far. the ones i have used before are laura mercier, bare escentuals clasic and matte, jane iradele compact, prescriptives, lancome ageless minerals normal one. and the ones i have tried but did not liked enough to buy are, everyday minearals, glominerals. this one is the thinnest powder and but covers very well. while covering enough my acne scarring reddish porefull awful skin good enoughand gives quite natural finish. not so shiny not so matt, not thick and masklike. also oscilating thing does good job, feel like polishing :) what i hate with it is the colors, although have a big scale ivory shades are two pale and even beige 10 is too dark for me. Also as they do not sell it in Turkey i have to buy them blind. now i have a dark and pale shade and have to mix. the colors are very different from ageles minerals spf 21 which beige 30 suits me well.
Treatments (Eye) -Dr. Denese - HydroShield Eye Serum
taliaseki 1/24/2011 8:26:00 AM
well another undeserved good reputation... sorry girls, It does not hydrate. what i understand from moistiruzing is my under eye are would become just as i have stepped out bath. fine lines minimal and all under eye are a bir blumped and smooth. This eye serum like many other, do not take the crepiness under my eye. I have tried it under cellex eye balm (another undeserved good reputation). well i buy dimeticone online to make my own hand creams and this serum is mostly dimeticone. Dimeticone is a silicone which does not leaves oiliness after a few minutes. The simple miracle this serum does... but not very bad. My previous eye cream was clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate and it was a bit better. well i am over 40 and still searching a moisturizing eye cream. I will go on with tns iluminating (an undeserved low reputatin) which i have tried anf found to be moisturizing plumping and illuminating. No no miracle probably C vit. these effect last only a few hours but better then putting on dimeticone.
