Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay -All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

Yeah, it just doesn't work for me. Maybe I don't know how to apply it or use it. I spray it on after I've applied all my makeup except for mascara. The mist isn't fine enough and I end up with little dots of this visible on my face. I don't apply much, a couple small sprays. Not only does my skin appear worse (some places look too shiny, other areas get dry looking) but it destroys my eye makeup. It melts all over my eyelids, streaking etc so that I have to remove it all and start over. I've even taken the nozzle off, cleaned it etc to better improve the spray. I'll give it one more chance, lol, and try to hold the bottle back farther from my face

Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand -Microfiber cloths

These cloths have such stellar reviews from just about everybody, but unfortunately they didn’t work for me. Like many other reviewers, I purchased mine from the auto care section in Walmart. At first, I loved them; they took care of the little flakies like nothing else. However, after week of using them, I started to break out all over my cheeks and chin. At first, I didn’t make the connection because I didn’t know cloths could break you out. I stopped using my other skincare products, but the breakouts continued. Eventually, I quit using the face cloths, and my skin began to clear up. A little while later, I gave them one more chance in case the first time was a fluke, but the exact same thing happened. I am quite puzzled, because I’ve never had a problem with other washcloths.

I didn't like it that much


Gels/Soaps -Trader Joe's -French Liquid Soap Orange Blossom Honey

I have struggled with dishydrotic eczema on my hands for most of my life. I'd break out in fluid filled blisters between my fingers and red rashes on the backs of my hands/wrists. I used prescription steroids (topical, injections, and pills) to try to control the symptoms only to have them return. The biggest culprit was Softsoap Aloe soap and most anything with fragrance or essential oils.

Last fall, I picked this up at TJ's because I love the smell of orange blossom. I noticed as I used it that my hands started clearing up dramatically. It's less about what's in this soap than what's not in it I'm guessing. It doesn't trigger my eczema like soaps with cocoamidapropyl betaine or methylchloroisothiazolinone do. It's so amazing!! I don't have to slather prescription creams on my hands anymore! Unless I have to wash my hands in public because I forgot hand sanitizer and it'll take several days to get them calmed down.

The only downside is that there's not a TJ's in my state and it's almost a 6 hour roundtrip to go. But when I do go, I buy at least a dozen bottles at a time plus all of the other awesomeness that they carry. I just pray that they don't d/c it!! 🤞🤞

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.

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

:)
