Hair Treatments -AVEDA -Sun Care Protective Hair Veil

on 4/21/2019 10:20:00 PM

I bought this after bleaching my hair a few times but i feel like it might have been an expensive mistake.

Pros:
UV protection (but needs to be reapplied every so often)

Cons:
contains lots of alcohol
gives hair a bit of a crunch to it
smells terrible (gawd forbid it gets in your nose because you'll feel like you've just inhaled asbestos or something. don't breath when and right after you apply it)

I'll probably use other methods to protect my hair from the sun.


Cleansers -REN Clean Skincare -No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm

It's so thick you can barely get it out of the tube!! It's hard to get off and doesn't get all my mascara off. It's also pretty expensive and seems like extremely thick Vaseline. Will def not repurchase and almost returned it.

Lipstick -Burt's Bees -Matte Lip Crayon

I picked this up in Redwood Forest since I'm allergic to a lot of drugstore lipsticks and was hoping natural products would fit me better. This is seriously an overpriced tinted lip balm, no joke. I needed to apply this with a heavy hand to even see anything. It barely showed any color on my lips (and I'm extremely pale with light pink lips), smelled like a crayon/similar to their lip balms, and dried my lips out badly. I had to use lip balm (not Burt's Bees) for two days to get them back to normal. My mom has also tried these before and agreed they were drying for her as well.

I'm overall finding that I'm not a fan of Burt's Bees lip products, so maybe my body chemistry just hates them. But I feel like there are better lipsticks out there that are less drying with a more opaque color for this price or a bit more.

i picked up this product at nordstrom rack for $14. the shades are all super creamy, but what made me buy a second one (since it is discontinued!) is the purple shade. applied wet, it is soooo pretty and rich. i love it! <3 love this for my olive skintone - highly recommend to anyone wanting a warn palette with lots of fun shimmery colors that you don't typically find in many palettes (in my opinion)

Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees -Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme

I will be honest, I was not a Hand Cream Purchaser or interested in any Hand Cream Products. This little gem came in a Subscription Box and I love it so much, I already bought 2/2 Ounce Jars
Packaging comes in a glass jar with a twist off cap. The thing that Lured me in was the Scent! Can I say it smells soo good, I that I want to eat it?! After Appliying and Rubbing into the Skin, it leaves your hands feeling Butter Soft and Smooth. I have already repurchased this twice and can't stop using it. The Fragrance is just divine and this is a Top Quality Product. I highly recommend the try. I always get asked what yummy perfume I am wearing and it is just a Hand Cream. You won't be disappointed and if it were Edible, I would eat it.

I love this oil, but once I discovered the recipe on Ana's blog I've been making it myself since the shipping and duties to Canada are just too pricey. Recipe below:

4 oz Jojoba Oil
4 oz Grape Seed Oil
4 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 drops Tea Tree Oil
2 mL Vitamin E Oil
2 mL Vitamin A Oil

Lipstick -MILANI -Color Statement Lipstick- Pretty Natural

on 4/21/2019 7:31:00 PM

I bought on a whim and am so pleasantly surprised! I couldn’t quite confirm what the actual color would look like based on the end of the tube but it’s a beautiful color that gives my light skin/dark hair/eyes a perfect finish. Best described as possibly a mid tone “pink”, although not Barbie pink/fuschia/rose, nor too bright or too brown. The smell is definitely jolly rancher watermelon (😄), but fades quickly and doesn’t taste like it. The wear is great but not drying. Definitely could pass as a higher priced department store brand. Will definitely check out more Milani items!

Styling Products -Phyto -Phytokeratine Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray

on 4/21/2019 6:46:00 PM

So far I love Phyto styling products. This is the best thermal protectant on the market! I have gone through so many bottles and I never buy anything again unless I really like it. Its a sprayable lotion type consistancy and it really protects my hair from heat styling. It also doesn't affect the effectiveness of the flat iron, which another reviewer mentioned. This product has good ingredients, has great fresh scent and is silicone and alcohol free. The only negative is the price, I bought my first bottle at Ulta for $32. I was able to find it on Ebay for $15 - $20 price range with free ship. I will always continue to purchase this.

Loose Powders -RIMMEL -Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder

on 4/21/2019 6:38:00 PM

This is an average powder at a budget friendly price.

The oil control is poor, it highlights my pores (most notably on my nose) and it’s not as translucent as I had hoped. It has a slight pink tinge which does alter the colour of my foundation a touch. That said, it’s very finely milled and does not break me out which is a relief. It does have a fragrance but not enough to cause irritation - weirdly, I quite enjoy the smell.

Overall, I find this sits better on top of thicker/creamier foundations. The more watery/liquidy ones do tend to struggle somewhat with this in my experience.

Not for me, but at only £7 a tub (and more often than not, on an offer in Boots or Superdrug), this is not completely terrible.

Treatments (Eye) -CeraVe -Eye Repair Cream

I don't love it. I expected SOME results for the price, but I got no results. It's also greasy and made my eyes burn. The only thing I like about this product is the tube which keeps it hygienic. No finger dipping required.
