Tinted Moisturizer -Philosophy - Renewed Hope in a Jar Skin Tint

on 10/23/2017 3:43:00 PM


Love it! Absolutely love it! Sooo light and creamy, blends in easily with fingers or a dampened cosmetic wedge. It doesn't feel sticky or tacky, and gives me a smooth, glowy, natural look. Not a "made-up" look at all. It has surprisingly good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, is buildable, and blurs my pores and fine lines. I really don't need to use much (which is good b/c it is expensive!) If I also wear blush and mineral powder, they just glide over it and blend in beautifully.I don't need to set it with powder except in my T-zone, and I don't get much shine- through during the day. It lasts all day and makes my skin look and feel smooth and fresh. And, I love that it is a moisturizer and foundation in one, which saves me time in the AM. What more can I say?...My Holy Grail!!

Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

on 10/20/2017 10:51:00 PM


I was looking for an effective cleanser, more straightfoward than luxe, and not terribly expensive. My sister uses this and swears by it. This cleanses my face without drying or stripping. I have somewhat oily skin and have not suffered any ill effects— redness, irritation, breakouts- from using this. It cleanses effectively, and mercifully, rinses away easily. I moisten skin with a little bit of water and i use a facial brush ($5 from Wal-Mart) to massage this all over into a gentle lather. Alternatively, i will use a small piece soft cloth for that allover massage. I do not get this near my eyes and would caution against this. This formula is fragranced, not strongly, but it is there. Actually, it smells identical to Princess Marcella Borghese’s Crema Saponetta- although that has a good deal more fragrance than this. Since i liked that product, i did not mind the scent using the purity. Pricewise, it is probably more cost-effective to buy the largest size (which i believe has the pump). However, i do not have the counter space for this. Also nice is that Philosophy sells small bottles of this which is perfect if you want to try this out, or for travel or to tuck into your gym bag. I would probably buy the largest size, decant into the smaller bottle (which has a flip cap), and store the large bottle out of sight. The smaller bottles are 2 oz or 3 oz, and are available stand-alone as well as sold in mini-sets paired with the exfoliating wash or their micellar water. I would re-purchase this.

Cleansers -Philosophy - Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser

on 10/19/2017 5:16:00 PM

I have officially found my HG cleanser after years of looking for one that would tame my very oily skin and my acne. I don't have bad acne but it's very stubborn and nothing seemed to help and get rid of the pimples under my skin. It is very drying so I use it with the aveeno clear complexion daily moisturizer and my skin has never felt and looked better. It's not an over night thing, you have to give it some time but gosh is it ever good! LOVE LOVE LOVE this product !!

Cleansers -Philosophy - the microdelivery exfoliating wash

on 10/17/2017 9:34:00 PM


Purchased when ULTA had a great sale on this wash. This is not a wash for sensitive skin. This is a tad gritty. I only used it once a week, twice tops. I find the formula also to be a little thick. Hate that there is no pump, but with the thicker consistency and grit, I am uncertain if a pump would even work with this product. I ended up designating it for use in the shower for my body, too harsh on my face.

Masks -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask

on 10/17/2017 9:29:00 PM

So disappointed with this mask. I have large pores on my nose that tend to get congested. I usually need to use a pore strip once a month to keep the pore "clean". I love Purity cleanser, so I gave this mask a try. First this mask has grit to it. I don't like to use any harsh gritty masks or scrubs. I did stick with it, due to great reviews on ULTA and Sephora online. Mask applies with grit, dries in about 10 minutes. Rinses with warm water easily. Due to the exfoliating nature of this mask I do not use a separate scrub when I apply this mask. It does save me some time in that regard. It did nothing special for my pores. I finished a whole full size tube prior to this review.

PRO: saves time as it is a combination of a clay mask with exfoliation
didn't cause break outs.

Cons: I think it's too harsh.
Didn't help with my congested pores.
