Hair -Aussie -3 Minute Miracle - Moist

I have an oily scalp and very dry ends. This smells so great and made my hair smooth. It made my hair a bit limp though, my curls didn't hold for anything.

Moisturizers -Clinique -Anti-Blemish Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment

on 6/22/2018 3:47:00 PM

After seeing quite a few rave reviews about it I bought it and was really excited to use it for my acne but unfortunately it didn't do anything for it. The moisturizer is light weight and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving my skin greasy. I found that it gave me the right amount of hydration but if your skin is dry you might need to use something else on top of it. It didn't break me out more than I would have without it but it didn't lessen my acne nor did it make any pimples disappear more quickly. Overall I would consider it okay as a moisturizer but not a great acne treatment for me.


Cleansers -La Roche-Posay -Cicaplast Cleansing Gel B5

on 6/22/2018 3:31:00 PM

Unfortunately this cleanser is way too drying for my skin.
Although it is especially made for sensitive and reactive skin, it has a surfactant (a foaming aid and a conditioning agent) that can be too harsh for sensitive skin types.

The product contains 5% vitamin B5 along with the minerals of zinc, copper and manganese to aid healing of damaged skin.
Unfortunately the formula is a foaming gel instead of an oil cleanser that would have been more suitable for this kind of skin.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Panthenol, Peg-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Glycerin, Coco-Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Polysorbate 20, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Citric Acid, Cocamide Mea, Copper Gluconate, Manganese Gluconate, Peg-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polyquaternium-11, Ppg-5-Ceteth-20, Propylene Glycol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil / Sweet Almond Oil, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Hydroxide, Zinc Gluconate

Foundations -wet n wild -Mega Cushion Foundation SPF15

on 6/22/2018 3:31:00 PM

Price is right, coverage is good, application is easy, finish is skin-like. Definite repurchase.

I love cushion foundations for their skin-like finish. I didn't try this one for awhile because I have normal - oily skin and was concerned it would slide off. But, after a light application of powder it stays put all day.

The mirrored top already broke (and I've had it less than a week) which doesn't effect the product since the inner seal is fine.

I wash the applicator pad after each use, first with an oil based hand soap and then with my Daiso sponge & brush cleaner. I noticed if I don't do this the sponge can get smelly. Don't want that.

I have tried applying with a brush and with the applicator provided, and vastly prefer the sponge. It gives that natural skin finish. My skin has hyper pigmentation due to scarring, as well as a small bit of texture and medium pores on my cheeks. Cushion foundations applied with teh provided sponge give the most natural finish that I can;t get with any other foundation product/application.

The coverage is good, and the shade range works for me. I am pale, so even with my summer tan I can find a match.

The other cushion foundation I've used is the Maybelline. Because the amount of product is generally less than other formulas, I don;t like to spend much. Both the Maybelline ($16) and Wet n Wild are great products and I will definitely repurchase.

Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye

on 6/22/2018 3:06:00 PM

This product is so thick and viscous, it barely comes out of the tube. I tried applying it in so many different ways - with a beauty blender, concealer brush and my fingers - and it was such a chore to try to blend out every time. Even if I applied just the tiniest amount, it immediately settled into fine lines that I didn't even know I had. When I set it with loose powder, my under eye area looked crepey and dry. I don't have this problem with other concealers. The opacity and color definitely brightens the under eye area, but the consistency is so impossible that it's not worth it. Definitely skip this product. There are plenty of color correctors and under eye concealers out there that are way better.

Brows -Essence -Make Me Brow

I've repurchased probably 15 times, I go through this pretty fast and would say that if I use it often it doesn't last me much longer than a month, but for $3.99 can I really complain? Its neutral enough to use on my brows and I use the 003 shade which matches good but I can see some people might not be able to find a shade. I won't take off a lippie for that though.. cause its HG for me.

Moisturizers -Sulwhasoo -First Care Activating Serum

on 6/22/2018 2:08:00 PM

I ordered samples of this due to how pricey the full size is. After using it nightly for 30 days, I noticed no difference! This is very unlike Sulwhasoo products as I've had much success with their ginseng line and currently trying out the timetreasure line which I'll post reviews as soon as I've reached 2 months.

Anyways, usually a skincare product starts to show results within the first month for me...some as soon as the next day. So I'm ditching this one for good. But I'm not sad because my skin is doing really great from their other products and I don't need another product to add to my regimen.

Treatments (Face) -Sulwhasoo -Capsulized Ginseng Fortifying Serum

on 6/22/2018 2:03:00 PM

I don't know if this serum alone works wonders. But what I can tell you is that after using this serum with the ginseng eye cream, my skin is softer, smoother, and brighter. Also, I'm very acne prone but this did not clog my pores or give me any negative side effects. I just wish the price tag was not so steep. Also, I go through this every 2 months when I use it once a day but I do put some on my neck as well. But $200 CAD every 2 months just for 1 product out of the 5 I put on my face? QQ

Sadly I'm a sucker for this product as I haven't found anything cheaper that works as well. Most cheap products end up breaking me out or not doing anything at all which is worse because it's like throwing $$ in the trash. I would rather just save up my measly dollars and purchase this. I just hope that the Canadian dollar goes up so I don't have to pay so much.

Since I love both this and the ginseng eye cream (which although is only meant for eye area, I started using all over my face and it's great!), I've ordered samples from Sulwhasoo timetreasure, snowise, and hamonizen line. If the samples work well then I'll get the full size as I did with this one.

Treatments (Eye) -Sulwhasoo -Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Eye Cream

on 6/22/2018 1:55:00 PM

I just turned 32 and realized that after a close up in the mirror, there were fine lines under my eyes YIKES! Sadly in my teens and 20s, I never used moisturizers let alone eye creams. I have been living in Canada for 20 years now and most of that time was spent in northern Canada and prairies where dry and cold is an understatement. I started suffering from acne when I turned 18 and at the time the treatment for acne meant drying out your skin like crazy with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and other topical medications. Sadly, I never used anything with oil in it or moisturizers for fear that it would clog my pores and cause more acne.

Anyways, so I tried some cheaper eye creams (innisfree orchid eye cream, benton fermentation eye cream) but I saw no improvement after 30 days. I also started to notice a small amount of milia under my eyes.

I went back to the internet and did some research. People raved about this eye cream on Reddit and here so I finally caved. First I ordered samples from ebay and after using 100 samples, I decided to buy the full size. OMG the price is so steep especially right now when the conversion rate of 1 CAD=0.73 USD.

I have to say though that this cream did get rid of the fine lines around my eyes after 60 days. My eye area looks much more youthful in general and I even use it around my laugh lines. If I could afford it I would probably get a big tub of this for my entire body. Also I like the faint ginseng smell.

Blush -Glossier -Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

on 6/22/2018 1:48:00 PM

Honestly, amazing.

I started off with Dusk and Haze, and immediately realized I need Beam and Puff (now Storm and Dawn too!) I love mixing the colours, especially Dusk and Haze- it creates a stunning dusty raspberry colour. The colours seem intense when you first squeeze them out of the packaging but as soon as you start to blend it just gives the most naturally gorgeous flush of colour, and you can easily build up the intensity.

The ONLY downside, is the packaging. Although its super cute and very fitting of the name, it's very easy to squeeze out a little (or a lot when I first tried) too much product. I recommend shaking the tube so that all the product moves down to the cap, and GENTLY squeeze the end until you have the tiniest little drop on the back of your hand. It's better to squeeze out more than to be stuck with too much on your hand. But even with that tiny little drop, you' be surprised at the surface you can cover.

It doesn't feel tacky at all, and is easily applied over and under powder. I love them so much, and it makes it much more fun when picking out a blush for the day.

Puff: gives me a fresh flush, just the right amount of pink without being overpowering
Beam: Makes me look like I spent the day on the beach and got a bit of colour on my cheeks, I always apply it further out than the others and a bit on the bridge of my nose.
Haze: the richest of the four I own, gives a deeper flush, a beautiful raspberry colour that is stunning sheer and great to build up when wearing a heavier look.
Dusk: I mainly use this to mix the other colours to tone them down a little and change them up, it's a gorgeous colour but I don't find it pops as much as the others on me, so when I use it I typically apply it below where I'd apply my blush to really bring out my cheeks.
