Treatments (Face) -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -TCA Peel

on 9/18/2018 10:39:00 PM


This isn't my final rating - I did the peel about 15 minutes ago and wanted to start my detailed review while the details are fresh. I'll update daily so others can know what to expect. I kept the rating the same as the average but I'm guessing it'll be bumped up to a 5 if all goes well.

I have pics of the process - just click on my name.

I have the 15%. This is my first TCA peel, though I am very experienced with high % glycolic and lactic. I figured I can layer it (it apparently adds 25% to the strength each additional layer, which would make it 18.75%. That's as far as I want to push it on my first peel with this product. I know I can keep layering to get it up to 20% if I felt like it over time, while not having to buy a 20%+ peel and dilute it at first.)

Anyway, I did this setup:

*Shallow bowl that I poured the neutralizer in. I put 3 q tips and four cotton rounds in it so I wouldn't have to fumble around while my face was on fire.
*Thin gauze pad for applying so I wouldn't soak up too much product - I am afraid of drips, of course.
*A layer of vaseline over my eyebrows and then in a complete circle around my eyes, and on the edges of my nostrils, and around my lips.

I had no makeup or products on today to start, so I wiped my face with alcohol, then washed with the enclosed cleanser, and wiped again with alcohol. It is important to defat your face so it can penetrate better. I sometimes do not defat and even a high % glycolic peel won't burn much or be very deep - that natural oil (even on dryer skin) really works to buffer.

I applied it starting on my forehead and worked my way down. The center of my forehead frosted in less than a minute, and then a small section on my right cheek, and then a small section on my left. I used the soaked q tips to neutralize it and kept going.


After five minutes I put another layer on and holy crap more burning. So bad. I had to turn on my hair dryer (on cool) to help. I lasted about two minutes this time, again waiting for a frost and neutralizing with q tips. I used a cotton round of neutralizer, splashed water well, patted dry, and then did another cotton round of neutralizer.

The frosting was light on my cheeks, and I wasn't sure if it was a full frost, but I want to be conservative. It wasn't white-white or anything, but you could tell something was going on.

I put on a thin layer of antibiotic cream. Where my face is most damaged, it is very hot and red and looks like I've put acid on my skin. Ha. I don't feel discomfort, just maybe like a mild sunburn right now. I want to put vaseline on but I hate sleeping with it. I'll do it anyway.

Day 2: Where I frosted on my cheeks is a bit darker and a few spots are brown, but nothing serious. I'd forgotten to get a week of groceries before I did this, so I waited until after dark and went to the grocery store with no makeup on. Ran into a friend and she didn't notice anything amiss. Put a thin layer of antibiotic cream on the darker spots and vaseline all over. Feels like a sunburn when I touch it. Started taking vitamin C to help heal. (I don't get a lot in my diet.) Photos are in my profile.

Day 3: Dark/red/brown spots the same, no peeling. It is very itchy though. I couldn't find any anti-itch stuff at the store that didn't have undesirable ingredients in it. (Alcohol, AHAs, menthol, etc.) I won't take photos if there's no real change.

Skincare - Face -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -Mandelic Acid Toner

on 9/12/2018 12:21:00 AM


Ok, I needed a toner.. not to necessarily "do anything special ", just to take off any remnants of my makeup after washing my face.. I noticed about 2 days later that I was peeling.. peeling like I did an actual peel! That may be ok, but only if that is what you are going for.. I think it should be advertised as a peel as opposed to a toner

Treatments (Eye) -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -Bellevolve beautifeye lifting serum

This has been my go-to eye serum for the past few months. Love how soothing and refreshing it feels on my tired eyes. And I love using the metallic roller to massage my tear trough areas. I was also surprised when I saw the before-after photos because it showed me something that I didn't see based on daily observation. Here's a summary of the goods and bads based on my experience.

What's Great?
1. Well-designed & Quality Packaging
2. Cool, Soothing and So Refreshing!
3. Lightweight and Long-Lasting Hydration
4. No Millia
5. Product Lasts Forever
6. Reasonably-Priced

What's Bad?
1. Don’t Expect Miracle!
2. Shake Well on First Use

Primer/ Corrector -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -Triage Baked Mineral Corrector

on 6/30/2018 3:00:00 PM

I bought this powder because it is for ruddiness. I don't wear foundation, but I have some ruddiness around my nose, and I have melasma patches on my cheeks. I think this works nicely to minimize discoloration after patting on my It Bye Bye Pores powder. Then I spritz with rosewater as my final step. This powder adds a nice glow, and my red areas look much better. Not as much benefit for the melasma, but mine is bad. It cost $29, which is high, but I think this will last me a very long time. It also does not come with an applicator, so not very portable. I apply with my Elf pointed powder brush. Nice powder.

Lipstick -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) -Hydrating Lip Balm

on 6/30/2018 2:50:00 PM

Love, love, love this! I am a lipstick fiend and have about a million lipsticks, glosses, tinted balms, etc. This one, in the black currant shade, is the one I reach for every day. I favor sheer, deeply tinted lip balm for every day, work, etc. This one is so pretty, moisturizing, comfortable, and reasonably long lasting. It costs $9.99, which I think is reasonable for size and quality. I signed up for their mailing list and receive sale notices. Did I mention how much I love this? Love it!
