Fragrances - Atelier Cologne - Pomelo Paradis

Pomelo Paradis is grapefruit with sugar piled on top. It truly smells like citrus and not "perfume-like" at all, which I have found to be true for everything I've tried by Aterlier Cologne. It does not project much or last long, but it's a bright, fun scent for an hour or two after spraying. Great as a sample but not worth purchasing a bottle.

Well... this one gives me mixed feelings.
Pros:
It's really beautiful mascara, gives the curliest, longest, thickest lashes you have ever dreamed. Looks like false eyelashes!!!
Cons:
1) I bought Le Volume in Ultra Noir 3 months ago. And it flakes like crazy since I have been using! After being with for, maybe, 3 hours I must go to check my face into the mirror and try to wipe …

Well done, La Roche-Posay! I really like this product because:
1) It does not dry out my skin ( I have combination, sensitive skin )
2) Not irritating
3) Does not oxidizes (no orange look)
4) Very affordable (good quality and just for ~15 euros)
5) Gives light coverage (it masks pores on my cheeks and redness), and if you want, you can build it up to wanted coverage
6) …

I got the color Happy, and it is a beautiful, beautiful color. But this stuff is sheer, and I mean SHEER. I had to put on multiple layers to get it to even show up, and I'm pretty light. Kind of defeats the purpose of something that's supposed to be quick and easy. Ended up returning it. I gave this 3 stars because while it didn't work well for me, the quality of the product …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Molton Brown - Replenishing Hand Cream Gingerlily

This hand cream surprised me. It is very thick going on. A little goes a long way. But my skin drinks it up and it has no greasy feel almost immediately after rubbing it in. And no oily fingerprints on water glasses, paper etc. Very soft generic scent is ok going on and doesn't really last so it doesn't compete with my cologne. I wish it came in a pump rather than a squeeze tube, but …Read more

Lips - TONYMOLY - Cherry Lip Balm

This came in a beauty box. I am really past the point of wanting to dip my finger into a pot of tinted lip balm to smear it on my lips and then hunt for a tissue to wipe my finger and dig it out from under my fingernail. It's an ok balm, ok tint, but quite Chapstick like in it's consistency (= lots of wax), and a bit too fragrant for me. I think this would be good for a tween or teen …Read more

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint

This came in a beauty box. Ooh this didn't work for me in every way: too drying, too thick even after just 1 swipe with the foam applicator, too hard to take off and their Rose shade is the color of death on me. Really- like what I would look like in the coffin. Usually I like a neutral, close to natural lip color so that was surprising. So no, no, and no from me.

Gels/ Soaps - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Body Wash

I bought this as I had a reoccurring skin infection of ringworm that I picked up at the gym. This has been the only thing that's kept the infection from coming back, so in that respect, it's a great buy. The only problem is it is quite expensive for the quantity you get, which stops me from using it as frequently.

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash

Tea Tree oil has been proven to be just as effective as antibiotics at clearing acne at concentrations of 5%. I recommend this product completely, it must have a 5% concentration because it cleared my skin up completely with twice daily use. I used it for years, and any time I stopped, I would break out again. I think the trick is to leave it on your skin for a moment or two, so that the tea tree …Read more

Sunscreen - Drunk Elephant - Umbra Sheer Physical Defense Sunscreen SPF 30

This is a superior physical sunscreen. A whopping 20% zinc, extra antioxidant support, no silicones, moisturizing, not ghastly white or greasy. I shake the tube and generously pat into face, ears, neck, chest and backs of hands. Doesn’t sting even on rx retinoids (& EVERYTHING stings me right now). The silicone free aspect allows my skin breathing space (too many silicones make my face get …Read more
