Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Yesterday

When The Ordinary first came out I bought everything for my son. He was overwhelmed so I used what he didn’t. Out of everything the niacinamide was the only product I saw results. It kept my sebum levels even. Made my skin glow and wasn’t a sticky serum. Now I use it in my moisturizers that have all amazing ingredients but lack this one. With The Ordinary serums I’m starting to see they are made …Read more

Hair - AVEDA - Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair

Yesterday

Much prefer the Redken blowout lotion. Comparatively, my long hair was frizzier and less smooth/soft using the Aveda. Not a big fan of the herbal scent, either. It didn’t leave my hair feeling/looking greasy, but it also didn’t really seem to add any smoothing, shine, or other benefits. Also it’s double the cost of the Redken, which I think works better and is lighter in texture.

Misc Beauty Tools - EcoTools - Ecofoam Makeup Sponge

Yesterday

This is called the "Perfecting Blender" and comes in different shapes, colors and also a duo pack, all are made with the same (usually green) "Eco Foam". I like the wedge shape but its a very firm and dense foam that doesn't get very wet and doesn't expand much at all. Lasting power is extremely poor. The first one of mine started tearing and breaking off little …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - NIVEA - Creme

Yesterday

The original Nivea cream has been a staple in my skincare for 40+ years. It serves as an excellent hands and feet moisturizer, waterproof mascara remover, and it's the only thing that cures my sometimes very dry and chaffed lips. No lip balm ever came close for that. I usually buy this cream in a tube, and always have one on me. I also love the "light" version as a body …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary "Buffet"

Yesterday

My nearly 60 years old facial skin did not show any improvements from using this product... I used it morning and night for about 6 weeks, after cleansing, and found that it made my combination skin produce much more oil(s) than usual. Not so much an issue at night but, during the day, the oils came right through the makeup, and made my face very shiny. I had to use blotting paper nearly every …Read more

this is the worst eyeliner i have ever used! I'm intrigued by the inconsistencies in reviews for this product - mine is incredibly dry and sticky and i wonder if the formula is off ? i find it impossible to apply and it smudges really quick. mine is destined for the trash. don't waste your money.

Highlighters - Maybelline New York - Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter - Molten Gold

If you enjoy highlighters, this is a good one and won't break the bank. It's said to be a dupe of the Mac Whisper of Gilt. I don't own that product, but on its own merits, if you want a pale yellow gold highlighter with shimmer, blinding bling and no chunky glitter, you've got it. Texture is slightly less creamy than Ofra's highlighter. It has a geometric impressed …Read more

Cleansers - Farmacy - New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains

2 days ago

I love cleansing powders and I really like Farmacy as a brand which had me hunting down this product to test out, assuming I would love it and jump to purchase it. Well, first of all you can’t find it anywhere - out of stock online at Sephora, not in store either, until a recent trip across the border where I spotted one bottle in Sephora. I asked the SA if there were any in the back, she tells …Read more

I wanted to add a little extra moisture and heat protection to my dry hair before using my curling wand, so I gave this a try. I already use (and love) the Redken blowout lotion on wet hair pre-blowdry. Although on the bottle of this spray it says it can also be used on dry hair, I would argue against it. It made my hair feel tangled, rough and almost greasy. It never really "dried" and …Read more
