Hair Treatments -Kérastase - Paris Chronologiste Essential Revitalizing Balm

on 4/8/2019 2:35:00 AM


This is a seemingly thicker conditioner that one would believe to be nourishing and repairing for damaged hair.

It is everything but.
Sadly, it is not for dryer stressed out hair. It is more for a normal hair type that does not require anything more than a fluid light conditioning.

Although the product does contain an impressive array of actives, I find it not conditioning enough and have to blend it with the Olaplex 3 to have any effect at all.

Foundations -Pacifica -Alight Clean Foundation

on 4/8/2019 1:46:00 AM


Can’t believe no one has reviewed this yet! I just got this last week after someone suggested it to me. I avoid silicones in my skincare and makeup because they break me out and this does not have any.

At first I tried pacificas other foundation the crystal blur- it was awful it caked up and looked so obvious I was wearing foundation. So I was scared to try another but I finally did at Ulta and I could not believe it! This one is not at all like the crystal blur. This covers so well and looks so even and smooth. On me it is a dewy to natural radiant finish but I’m oily and acne prone. It lasts all day on me but it does have a tendency to move if you touch your face even the slightest bit. It never really feels like it settles. But I read reviews that it settle in peoples lines and I have not noticed that at all. It does not dry me out or accentuate dry patches. It comes in 30 shades as well which is a big improvement for Pacifica.

This is a fabulous foundation if you also avoid silicones. It does have coconut which can break people out but coconut does not break me out for some reason. It also is a really good price and comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump. I think it performs as well as high end foundations I’ve tried. Would recommend everyone who is not sensitive to coconut try this!

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Moisturizer


I really dislike this moisturizer I’ve been using it for about two months now and my skin got very dry and irritated while using this moisturizer, it just wasn’t moisturizing enough. The texture is like a regular moisturizer and it’s non greasy and very lightweight on the skin it also absorbs very fast. Sadly it just isn’t cutting it for me so I started mixing this with my tatcha Camelia oil and that oil has been a life saver for me because since I’ve been adding the oil my skin is no longer dry irritated or itchy and it’s not because of this moisturizer either it’s the tatcha oil that made this work for now. With that being said I recommend this to normal and oily skin types because this isn’t heavy it’s lightweight and non greasy but this is not for skin that needs real moisture.

Mascara -essence -Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara

on 4/8/2019 12:36:00 AM


I tried this mascara today, and I'd say it's just as good as if not a bit better than most drugstore mascaras. It's VERY black, goes on quick--I only needed about two coats--and any smudge on the lid is easily buffed out. Didn't smell weird, and the packaging is weighty in the hand in a good way so it doesn't feel like it would slip out of your hand while using it. It's decent at separating lashes, however, I notice that with many mascaras the first few applications are a bit goopy and then after it dries out a tiny bit with normal use it becomes a lot more manageable. So I had to use a lash spoolie with it today, but overall I'm pretty pleased. Went on much quicker than my normal mascara, held a curl ALL day long, lengthened well, and created some decent volume. I also scraped the brush against the side of the opening to get rid of a bit of extra mascara on the brush and that seemed to work well for me. I'll update this review as needed, but you could do a LOT worse than this for $5.

Moisturizers -Algenist -Sublime Defense Anti-Aging Blurring Moisturizer SPF 30

Love it so much! The only cream primer/sunscreen combo that doesn't irritate my rosacea or give me oil slick skin an hour later.

Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand -Finchberry Cranberry Chutney Handcrafted Vegan Soap

on 4/7/2019 11:54:00 PM

I went to a local boutique and I picked up some Finchberry Soap in Cranberry Chutney. Research this brand and you will find this soap is some of the most beautifully crafted soap you've ever seen. I love that this soap is natural and the scent of it is amazing as well. This soap doesnt leave over "scum" whenever you put it on the side of the shower overnight like other soaps do, which i love. I just cant say enough good things about this brand and soap. It's my absolute favorite! It lathers so creamy and well. IT was $10.70 for a bar and I am in love. Its expensive but it's a luxury to have and worth it. I can even wash my face with it and it works good at removing makeup. Love this, give it a try!

Gels/Soaps -NIVEA -Foaming Silk Mousse Body Wash - Vanilla Caramel

on 4/7/2019 11:48:00 PM


I bought this because I like the idea of a mousse body wash. The smell is okay, nothing super special. It is very silky and satiny feeling while bathing, however I don't notice any special benefits to my skin. Also, I don't feel "clean" if I just use this, I always have to bathe with this plus traditional dove soap. I won't buy this again for the reasons aforementioned.

This dried my hair badly and left my hair frizzy. Unless what I got off Amazon was not the real thing.

In search of a good dark brown eyeliner, I purchased this! It lasted all day and is a very rich dark brown that defines my eyes! I love how its automatic and it's very easy to apply. This lasts all day until you take it off. I love it and will continue to repurchase. ``

Bronzers -wet n wild -ColorIcon

on 4/7/2019 11:33:00 PM


On a budget and out of bronzer I headed to my local drugstore. I had never tried any wet n wild products before and with very little money to spend I had to buy some foundation and bronzer from this particular brand. I am absolutely pleased with the wet n wild brand thus far. I've used many high end brands such as estee lauder, lancome, ect and this bronzer is fantastic! It is very pigmented so a little goes a long way! I didn't know i could get away with buying a bronzer and a foundation for like $12 at a walgreens and they weren't even on sale there! I got this bronzer in the colour "You're Dragon Me Down" and it is a limited edition one.I will be heading back to buy some more since it is limited edition as this is a staple for me. plus this brand is cruelty free. I need bronzer to slim up my face and this did the job! I use it every time I do my makekup. I got the money up to go and buy more high-priced "quality" makeup but ended up being able to spend my money on other things because wet n wild is quality makeup even if it is cheap. :) I hope this Helps. and i also love that this brand is cruelty free! major plus! kudos to wet n wild.
