I found this at Marshalls for $4 so I thought I would try it,
and I like it, not drying makes my face feel really good after washing


Fragrances -LUSH - Twilight Perfume- Forum Special

I believe Lush have revamped the packaging, but the scent is out of this world.

I use it whenever I just run errands or hit the gym, nothing too strong, yet I do smell like a sweet bouquet of heavenly goodness. Definitely a scent you will recognize on others. It helps me relax, unwind a bit and is a great value for money in my opinion. You can read more about the brand's Twilight line in a separate review here (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2017/09/17/Favourite-Body-Care-Products-Sep-17) but in two words - it is worth it. Just give it a whiff and see how you like it!


Bath Treatments -LUSH - Twilight Bath Bomb

This is hands down the cutest Lush bath bomb I have tried.

I love the smell of it (sweet, but not OTT; a bit of lavender but nothing granny-like). It helps me relax and unwind, especially after a very stressful day at work. Works every time and I even break it into two (because I am greedy that way lol) so that I can use it twice. The entire Twilight line is heavenly, you can see more photos + read more about it in a separate review here (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2017/09/17/Favourite-Body-Care-Products-Sep-17). I am very happy with my picks and can't recommend these enough!


Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - BCL Spa Massage Cream Spearmint + Vanilla

on 10/23/2017 7:26:00 AM

I am new to the brand, but these gel lotions/massage creams are such good body care products.

They are lightweight, smell great, have great nourishing ingredients in them and are fabulous for someone with drier skin. I use these both in the morning/evening, since the lotion absorbs really fast - your clothes won't stick to the body.

Cleansers -Paula's Choice - Perfect Cleansing Oil

on 10/23/2017 7:19:00 AM

I love this cleansing oil! I was using Clinique for at least three years. The Clinique oil was ok but left my skin feeling a bit hot and seemed red. This oil is so mild. The oils are light and gentle. There is not an ounce of fragrance. Obviously, I close my eyes when I use any cleanser, so I can't say that it would sting. My skin feels soft, not a breakout or irritation to be seen. It is way lighter than the Burt's Bees, lighter than Tatcha, and less greasy than Simple. I really love it in my double cleansing routine. Yes, PC is coming out with a lot of products, but at least they follow her philosophy of no fragrance or irritating ingredients. In fact, her products are improving. I could never use the 4% BHA foam, but can completely use the new 4% BHA serum.

Fragrances -Lancome - La Vie Est Belle

I’ve tried this several times since I keep getting samples. If you’re sensitive to patchouli you won’t like this. I don’t think this is as universally appealing because of that patchouli.

It does last and packaging is nice.


Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I have to say I do not understand the rave reviews. Firstly - while it’s cheap, you don’t get a lot of product for your money, putting it at about the same price as high street foundations. It markets itself as very lightweight and this may be true if you have very young skin but I do not find it to be so on my skin. I am in my 30s and while I have no proper lines or wrinkles I have very fine lines across my forehead. This sits in them terribly and really makes me look old. Not good! Compared to (yes a v high end) but still lightweight foundation like a ysl cushion foundation, I’d rather pay the money instead of looking older than I am


Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

on 10/23/2017 6:33:00 AM

I’m afraid that while there’s no denying this product is excellent value for money and provides a solution to the instability of vitamin c, I would not purchase again. The cons just out weigh the pros. I understand the science behind why it’s gritty but I find rubbing it into my face irritating, for some reason the taste always ends up in my mouth and lastly, for me a vit c product is for the mornings so retinols may be used at night. This just doesn’t work under make up particularly if you’re in a hurry. If you’re able to leave it for ages it’s not too bad but I find it balls and is gritty under the make up if doing a normal morning for work make up. I will try the newer one and see if it’s any better


Scrubs -Clinique - 7 Day Scrub Cream

The creamy base allows me to use this on my combination 62-year old skin. I use glycolic acid pretty regularly so this helps the flakes when they appear. But I’d only use it once a week at most and I remove it with a damp microfiber cloth. Clinique was one of the first companies to introduce the whole exfoliating practice well before the other lines. While there are literally dozens upon dozens of other products, I like this because it is unscented: it’s the essential oil components of other products that just kill my skin and leave me blemished and red.


Palettes -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Prism

foto

I just purchased this palette a couple days ago and first things first, I LOVE THE COLORS. So I did some swatches and noticed the formula feels WAY different than modern renaissance! It's on the chalkier side for sure, and the pigmentation isn't as good either. I'm not complaining just yet because I can build up the colors that's just something I noticed off the bat. I have yet to do a look with this palette but will be doing one soon!
