Whitening Mask

WOW. This was bad. Left it on for 10-15 minutes, and SHOOK!!! Once I rinsed it off, 2-3 pimples formed within that time frame. I was shocked. I tried it another night and the same thing happened. I thought I was delusional, but another review says the same thing!!!!!! This also left and super yucky waxy film that was hell to rinse off.

Where have you been all my life???? I love this powder! Smooth, oil controlling, what could be better!? I wouldn't use this under the eyes as that would create too matte of a look but to cut down the grease and shine on the t-zone is amazing. Don't let the yellow look of the powder or sulfur smell scare you, the way this makes the skin look is well worth it! You have to understand that this is a MAKEUP product to be used alone or over foundation to control oil. It's not meant to treat the skin at night or to be used as a skincare product.

Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30

I was looking for a simple, basic moisturizer with SPF that was not too expensive, and this was on promotion at the time. I'd say this is OK, nothing too exciting. I like that the ingredients are simple because currently I am using prescription grade actives and don't want to do too much. This goes on smoothly, doesn't irritate my skin, and leaves me a little dewy, but not greasy. I feel like it plumps up the skin. It works well alone or under makeup. It doesn't leave a white cast or need excessive rubbing - but that is because it is not a mineral sunscreen, which I'm learning is probably worth the extra effort. This is not my favorite, but I like it for quick application. I was drawn to it because it has some soothing ingredients like aloe, green tea, glycerin and NO SILICONE which is hard to find! Cons: contains chemical sunscreen & fragrance which is less then ideal I'm on the fence if I would purchase it again... I do think it's a bit pricey for how simple it is. Packaging is cute, but leaves something to he desired for the price point.
