Styling Products -Redken -Diamond Oil Glow Dry

I was intrigued by this products beautiful bottle and it’s promises to cut drying time.

Unfortunately there was no tester available in store, I asked the staff and they said they couldn’t for this product? Red flag there. Should have known better, I wouldn’t had purchased it otherwise.. I did not like the smell after purchase at all.. to me it smelt musky, like a mix of bad musk perfume and mothballs. :-/

If You are considering purchasing this product, DO NOT unless the salon can provide a sample to try out first. (Shouldn’t they do this anyway?)

It didn’t do much for my long wavy blonde hair, did not particularly notice any faster blowdrying time or shine. It actually felt quite drying, like alcohol in my hair. :-/ After a few months ended up emptying the bottle and purchasing cheaper and better stuff. I kept the pretty bottle though, hopefully can get my use out of it ..as it is VERY Pricey. :-/ Save Your money.


Moisturizers -Belif -The true cream - Moisturizing Bomb

HG alert!!! I LOOOOOVE this stuff! so I have combo oily skin and I use a lot of BHA and retinol. I like to have a deeply moisturizing night cream. For years I used Estee Lauder Hydrationist, but recently its just not doing enough. I've been using Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Clear skin hydrator which worked well in the summer. But in this Minnesota winter, which has only barely started, it's not enough. I had a sample of the aqua bomb and I liked it fine but it was too light. I took a chance on this during the Sephora sale and got the kit with the eye cream. And now I'm in love.
This is a white cream that's actually quite light. I generally don't like gels or heavy greasy creams. This is like a fluffy lotion. It absorbs beautifully. You don't need much. It does not break me out. You have no idea how often that ruins good products for me. And, most importantly, when I wake up in the morning, my skin is soft, plump (I hate that word, but there's no other way to say it), and hydrated. It's not greasy, just hydrated. My skin looks so amazing in the morning that I don't want to put makeup on it!
The jar is a lightweight plastic but I'm cool with cheap packaging if it makes the product cheaper. And this is very reasonably priced at $38. PC is $33 and EL is $48 for reference. It's a simple moisturizer and that's all it claims to be so I'm not bothered by the jar packaging at all. If you want an all in one product with anti aging ingredients, this is not it. If you want a super awesome night moisturizer, go get it.


Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -CSI Vitamin C + 12% Youth Serum

Excellent product. I was skeptical at first, but after just a few applications my skin looked firmer, smoother, and brighter. I have sun damage on my chest—the skin there is rougher and redder than elsewhere—and the CSI has made it look much better. I've also applied it to a burn scar on my hand that was healing slowly, and it worked wonders. My facial skin is oily, but the serum hasn't caused any problems at all. And the price is amazingly cheap for a Vitamin C product if you buy it directly from Vitacost (which often has sales, too). I usually use it twice a day as the last step in my skincare regimen; sometimes I skip it in the mornings. I've already repurchased this twice.


Masks -The Body Shop -Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask

on 11/23/2017 6:31:00 PM

This mask claims to boost hydration, replenish the skin, and make your skin softer after one use. This mask did nothing at all for my skin so I returned it. I tried this mask 3 or 4 times and each time I saw no difference in my skin. It's pretty pricy so I'm very glad I returned it. The mask itself is a non sticky thin jelly texture. It goes on easily and washes off easily. I let it sit way longer than the advised 10 minutes with no effect. The jar is nice and heavy but narrow so you have to dig in to get product. Overall, I do not recommend this. Just get a really good moisturizer.


Conditioner -Kerastase -Masque Elixir Ultime

Just finished the jar and to be honest didn't really notice much difference because I've been using it on and off and was using the matching shampoo and hair oil. My hair does look and feel better but I don't know which product made the difference. I'll probably purchase it again because I love the fragrance of this whole line.


Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-exfoliating Shampoo

on 11/23/2017 6:04:00 PM

I tried a mini size from the holiday set and I don't think I'll purchase the full size because it's VERY drying. Yes, my hair felt very clean but very very dry too and not even the briogeo mask that was in the set couldn't fix it.


Cleansers -CeraVe -Foaming Facial Cleanser

I purchased this twice, just finished the second bottle and won't repurchase again. I thought it removes makeup and was using it night and day but I used a bioderma cotton and was still a LOT of makeup left. It doesn't dry out my skin and it's ok to use it just in the morning but I'm looking for something better not just ...blah


Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand -Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

on 11/23/2017 5:54:00 PM

Just returned this because I couldn't stand it anymore...it has a dark and orangey tint, oxidizes even more throughout the day, makes my face feel dry when first applied, makes my pores a little bit smaller but just for one hour or so until my face starts getting oily, and no, it doesn't control oil as promised and my makeup doesn't last longer either.


Cleansers -Cetaphil -Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

I really wanted to like this product because of its amazing reviews but I don’t understand the hype?

First of all, I used this and the third day of using it I had red spots all over my face? Like all over, and I have really clear skin . It was really weird it wasn’t like acne spots or anything it was under my skin and it was itchy a little. I’m assuming I’m allergic to it. I stopped as soon as possible and went back to my Cerave Foaming wash and it cleared up within two hours which was really weird.

I rarely breakout, my acne is well under control right now so those spots were really strange. I’ve never had an allergic reaction to anything before using this.

Second, I have this app called “get dirty” and it tells you all the true ingredients in a face wash and this one. Omg. It’s so bad you guys. There are so many parabens in this that are extremely toxic and cancer causing. The toxicity rating on the app for this product is so bad and is a 10! How is this product allowed on the market!? I looked up other drugstore face washes to compare like the Cerave and Neutrogena, Biore, Vanicream, Purpose. None of their products were bad like Cetaphil’s daily washes ingredients. Stop using this crap. Nothing in it is beneficial for your skin. It’s full of toxic parabens and has common allergen ingredients.


Pressed Powders -MAC -Blot Powder

I’m NC20 olive and wear shade Light. I prefer the lightest shade as I see it as a translucent product; it disappears into my skin after a few minutes of wear.

I set my foundation or sunscreen with Make Up For Ever Ultra HD loose powder and carry Blot in my purse to keep oil at bay. I always Blot with a blotting tissue first, then apply a dusting of Blot powder. I think it’s a really effective powder that instantly refreshes my face.

I have sensitive eyes and find that it doesn’t irritate my eyes at all when applied on the lids.

I am giving four stars as it is not as finely milled as I’d expect a 5 star product to be.
