Cleansers -Ole Henriksen - African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser

Great cleanser, a little goes a long way. I have combo/dry skin and this doesn't dry out my skin or have that tight feeling. It's very effective at removing all my makeup without cleansing twice. I do use this with my clarisonic and works wonderfully. The smell is amazing.. Kinda like oranges. I may or may not repurchase this product again, I like trying new cleansers
Cleansers -Bioderma - Sensibio H2O (aka Crealine H20 Solution micellaire)

Bought this product today after hearing soo many positive reviews, I bought this at my local drugstore here in toronto. For 250ml it cost me $22 so it is quite expensive. My thoughts so far it removed all my makeup effortlessly including eye makeup however I wasn't wearing any waterproof makeup. Downside of this product.. it really irritated my eyes and burned them. I now have bloodshot eyes and I'm hoping it will go away by the morning. I will not be using this product on my eyes, just on my face. I also do recommend to cleanse the face afterwards as well. Overall it's a good product

Love this eyeshadow primer! Makes my eyeshadow last all day without the slightest crease! Once I finished my tube I decided to try udpp to see what the hype was about.. and I wasn't as happy I noticed some creasing halfway through my day.. I will definitely be purchasing too faced shadow insurance again!
I have been loving this foundation its perfect for my dry/combo skin that leaves my skin with a subtle glow. I do however powder where I don't want shine such as my nose forehead and chin. It lasts me all day and feels like I'm not wearing anything on my face. However as much as I love this foundation I still think I want to try other ones out there. Not sure if this is my hg foundation yet.
i love benefit packaging i think its quite adorable, which drew me to this product. i had a spehora associate try this on me and it gave me a great glow. i thought it looked very nice so i bought it. i did return it because once i used it again i was as crazy about it and for the pricepoint you really dont get a lot of product. i figured i can get a nicer product for the same amount.
when i first tried this product it just felt very stange to me, its a cream but once you blend its a powder formula. i bought this because i had a sephora employee apply this and i fell in love and bought it right away it gave me a nice glow, and looked flawless. once i got home and i applied it the same way the associate did (with a sponge) it looked very dry and cakey, wasnt for me at all. i was quite sad because in the store i loved it. i returned it but i suggest trying it out first. it does have cute packaging though
Cleansers -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Cleansing Oil

bought this cleanser because i was looking for something new and something that is good for my skin. i have combo/dry skin and tend to get dehydrated skin often. i opted for josie marans argan cleansing oil because it had great moisturizing properties.so i purchased it, took it home, used it and at first i loved it, because it made my skin so soft and it left a nice glow. it also has a great citrus-y scent that i lovee! now that i have been using it for about a month i'm not crazy about it anymore. i'm finding that it is leaving my skin tight and dry which is the opposite effect of what it should be doing. oh and the packaging is quite awful as well. it has a nice pump, but if you accidently knock it over the oil will leak everywhere and its a pain to clean! i wouldnt purchase this again, im going to look elsewhere.
Tinted Moisturizer -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Tinted Moisturizer

after looking for a good tinted moisturizer i stumbled upon josie maran. I bought the shade 'creme' and at first i loved it, it had a nice finish and looked great. it has a very thick consistancy and is quite oily, i definitely wouldnt recommend this to someone with oily skin! within a few days of wearing it i noticed i have been getting breakouts and congested skin which i dont normally get. i'm disappointed that i spent so much on a tinted moisturizer that i cant wear on a daily basis. if you want to purchase this i HIGHLY recommend sampling it first and trying it out for a few days, dont rush like i did!
