This gives me the prettiest, softest, medium coverage. I love it!


Masks -Paula's Choice -Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask

foto

I tried a sample of this.. the formulation pilled off my face, neck and chest so much, that I had to remove it with micellar water. I could not stand it! So thick and filled with silicones. You're better off putting some squalane on your face, at least it soaks in, unlike this mess... Also, it contains both Vitamin C and Vitamin A, although in very small amounts, they are still skin irritants. So if you have very sensitive skin, it's probably not for you..

I tried a sample version of this, definitely saw brightening results overnight! Feels very nice and smooth on the skin. Will purchase in full size if I ever become a millionaire :)


Skincare - Body -Paula's Choice -RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Body Lotion

Great packaging as always. The formulation is packed with silicones, however since it's for the body I don't mind. It doesn't pill, even if I apply other moisturizers on top. Great for ingrown hairs, keratosis pilaris, uneven skintone and textural irregularities. Makes you so smooth! I will definitely repurchase. It says not to use on freshly shaved legs, however I haven't experienced any irritation from doing so. It's slightly overpriced (as most PC products), however it makes my skin really smooth, and the tube lasts forever (I use a couple of times a week). So can recommend, if you feel like splurging a bit :) Try this and their 2% BHA spray for body also. (protip: both products can be used for face as well, for a cheaper price pr. ml. than their face products..)


Moisturizers -La Roche-Posay -Hydreane Legere moisturizing cream

This is an exceptionally elegant and light moisturizer with a superb silky finish without any oily residue yet hydrating enough even on a colder day.

It is a product that is worth considering if you need a moisturizer that is reasonably priced, has an elegant finish and hydrating.

It does not have any outstanding ingredients (with the exception of the mineral water it is based on) or a revolutionary technology however the composition is definitely a very good one considering that it does strengthen the skin-barrier (instead of making it weaker).
It has an excellent humectant (beside glycerin) that provides lasting hydration to the skin.

I also like that the fragrance is almost undetectable and of a very pleasant kind.

It has an almost identical composition to the Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer, (without the prebiotic water). Some people experienced that it is "peeling" on the skin after application. The Hydreane Light moisturiser does not "peel" at application but is absorbed rapidly into the skin.

Mascara -Isehan -Kiss Me by Isehan - Heroine Make Long

This makes my short dark lashes look like I have false ones one.

Curl my lashes and putting a light coat will not pull my lashes out the curl. It doesn't take too long to dry, so adding another coat makes my lashes look boom. Worn with contacts I had no irritation.

However I will not buy this again. Getting this stuff off is a mission in trying to keep my lashes... this will stay long after I want to part with it. Apparently there is a remover from the same company so I would suggest buying this at the same time. I didn't. I got around this by using an oil cleanser on a clean mascara wand. Comb through my lashes and leave for a few minutes whilst I cleanse the rest of my face. Then I will place a cotton pad with oil cleanser on placed over my closed eyes and lightly wiggle the mascara off. It worked so that I kept My lashes but it was too much work for me. I stopped reaching for it and then the 3months were up and I dumped it.

**I am reviewing the lotion version of this, could not find it anywhere**

Great packaging, not that much stinging, however super overpriced compared to what it actually is.. Glycolic acid is very cheap, why does it have to cost €33?? Also it's loaded with silicone, not great for layering, because it will pill up. One pump applied to my face and one pump applied to neck and chest, and still I get pilling if I try to layer it with ANYTHING. Definitely will not repurchase. I recommend acid products from The Ordinary, they are cheaper and more effective than PC.

To be fair, PC is a great brand because: trustworthy formulations (for sensitive skin), always fragrance free and not animal tested.
I just don't see any benefits from many of their products, sadly.


Skincare - Body -Paula's Choice -Clear Acne body spray

Great product with easy application. I used it on my face (spraying on my hand and dabbing on face afterwards, as instructed by PC). Much cheaper than their face products, and with a great formulation (same 2% BHA as their expensive face products, and with more calming ingredients too). If I ever order from PC again, I will definitely grab another bottle of this. PC products have lots of silicones, but not this one, which makes it great for layering.


Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice -Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment

foto

Very overpriced and did nothing for my complexion. I got the travel size, to try it out for a few weeks. It did not sting, it smelled strange, and made my face very sticky. I saw no results other than the moisturizing effects. I switched to The Ordinary and saw results overnight (Granactive retinoid 5%), for a much cheaper price. Don't waste your money, folks!
It gets two stars for great packaging though, and a trustworthy formulation.


Treatments (Face) -Lancome -Absolue Precious Cells Revitalizing Rose Lotion Toner

Launched in January 2018, this is a gelled toner/treatment lotion that appears thicker and less fluid than a normal toner.

Its exceptional visual effect is one part of the pleasure it can give, since the real rose petals are suspended in this somewhat thicker pink coloured gel.

However, the formula is exceptionally hydrating and gives a visibly pumped effect after application.
I use it morning and night as a treatment lotion and apply with fingertips directly to the skin.

The only drawback is that the gel is too thick to be dispersed easily from the opening of the bottle. A pump would have been a more practical solution, although aesthetically the packaging might not have been as striking as it is today.
