Fragrances -L'Occitane -Verbena

This product is like heaven on Earth to my nose. It is a true beauty. This is truly what I want to smell like everyday all day in all four seasons. There would never be a time where I grew sick of this. The only problem that I've encountered is the longevity. If only this lasted on my skin more than one hour or less it would be my signature scent. So basically ever since I tried this 3 years ago for the first time I have been trying to find it elsewhere but with longevity. I don't even know if it's possible to make this beautiful Citrus last long. With my luck it's just not possible and I'm never going to get what I want and need. So for now I'll keep carrying the big bottle in my purse and touching it up every couple hours. It's worth it. Even with using the gel and lotion does not help make it last very much longer at all. Although I'm in love with the fragrance I had to take one Lippy off for the duration

Masks -Alba Botanica -Hawaiian Papaya Enzyme Facial Mask

I heard papaya was a good exfoliate for sensitive skin so i grabbed a trial packet of this from target. It tingles or i guess slightly burned? Nothing bad though, i figured id feel something of the sort anyways. I washed it off after 5 mins and my skin looked n felt so nice. I ended up purchasing the full size because of this. Ill probably try the other products in this line as well.

Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

on 7/21/2018 8:52:00 PM

I am so very surprised by how much I loved this foundation. I am 48 with combo skin that leans towards oily. I am also cursed with large pores.
First let me say that I used UD optical illusion primer. I love this so much. It helps minimize the pores for me.
I got the 1.2N shade. It's a good match. I have been using LM Minerals in Tender Rose or KA sensual skin in sx5 or Bare Minerals fairly light. I used my beauty blender.
The coverage is better than I thought it would be. It feels lightweight yet covered everything great. But didn't look or feel caked. It lasted very well too a full 10 hours of hot summer with the heat index around 115 today. Still looking great when I washed off.
The price of this is so much less than my others that I can see myself using and switching to it.
Overall I really loved this. Well worth a try for the price. Great coverage.

Moisturizers -Nuxe -Nuxellence Detox

foto

This is a night cream from Nuxe. Nuxellence Detox is an anti-aging night cream that makes your skin look rested and relaxed, and brighter. I have to admit, it made my skin feel really nice and look good. I could not get past the awful smell. I put it on (a sample) one night and right away noticed the fragrance. Unfortunately, Nuxe products are quite fragrant. This does not work for me, and I couldn't get past the smell of wet paint drying (which is what this product smells like to me). On the plus side, it's in a pump, which is my preference as jars are unhygienic and compromise ingredients in formulas.


Cleansers -Aveeno -Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser

on 7/21/2018 8:41:00 PM

I usually use Pacifica's quinoa sensitive face wash but my stores aren't carrying it any more so i saw this and decided to try it. Its not bad really. It does the job and doesn't irritate my skin (so far). It makes my redness in my t zone less noticeable too. So far though, this is the only product i like out of the utra calming line. If i can't get my Pacifica wash then this will become my ds back-up. Still on the hunt for something as good as the Pacifica though. Maybe ill try Alba next.

Cleansers -Aveeno -Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes

These would be great if they left the fragrance out. I dont get it, the face wash and lotion are fragrance free so why put it in the wipes? Its so strong i had to wash my face after the smell didnt go away and even after washing i could still smell it. It gives me a headache.

Bronzers -Nude by Nature -Mineral Bronzer

on 7/21/2018 8:11:00 PM

The SA at my SDM gave me a deluxe sample/GWP when I purchased the Sheer Glow BB Cream. I don’t enjoy loose powder products with the exception of setting powders (which I use very sparingly) but even though this really isn’t my kind of product I will try to be objective regardless of my preferences in this review.

Shade - Deep neutral bronze with light-reflecting micro particles that leave skin looking luminous and sun-kissed, but...most bronzers are not THIS BRONZE.

Texture - Soft mineral powder, not too fine that it goes airborne the minute you open the lid and it blends very easily.

Pigment - Strongly pigmented, best to use with a light hand or pick up very little product at first and build up to preferred shade. Because this has a very strong copper/orange undertone you have to be very careful not to overdo it or you will look like a pumpkin.

Very few (8) ingredients - mica, zinc oxide, kaolin clay, magnesium stearate, jojoba esters, titanium dioxide, iron oxides

If you enjoy loose mineral powders this is a decent option for a bronzer. I wouldn’t purchase it as it’s just not my preferred type of product but I am also not unhappy I received the deluxe sample/GWP. Nude by Nature is a cruelty free brand that uses 100% natural products.

This is an amazing product!! I usualy have no luck with hair masks, because they are too heavy ot too light for me.I have fine hair and this does te job perfectlyI use it after shampoo and leave it around 10 mins.When i rinse my hair, they feel deeply hydrated and nourished without the heavy greasy feeling.I also noticed that since i started using this product, my hair dries faster.(Healthy hair dry faster than damaged, dehydrated hair)So this is a HG product.Price, quality and amazing banana scent!! A+++

Liquid -Stila -Aqua Glow Serum Foundation

on 7/21/2018 7:32:00 PM

Highly recommended. I have pretty much settled into my favorite skin products, but I tried this after finding it at a discount store. The consistency is nearly exactly like Dior Skin Nude Air @ ~ $50 a bottle. The MSRP is $45 a bottle of the Aqua Glow, but on their website, you can buy it for $20 right now. I purchased my Stila Aqua Glow at a heavily discounted price under $10. It is absolutely amazing and very similar to the Dior I've been using for years. I will add that this is a great setting foundation if you do contour work, it allows for a dewy, natural finish and texture like skin that blends well with different products. The packaging is great too, because the gold cap works like a suction dropper, so you can squeeze it into specific areas then blend with a brush. Very sanitary and functional. My color in Stila Aqua Glow Deep Tan gave a similar match to my other colors: Dior 050, Bobbi Brown 6.5 Warm Almond, Laura Mercier 7, MAC C7/NW43

Blush -TheBalm -Frat Boy

Unbelievably perfect blush color for those who are fair with warm undertones. It's a nice peachy pink, and it's matte! I didn't realize how hard it is to find this type of color without any shimmer in it. Applies beautifully and gives that gorgeous, natural flush to the cheeks, my go to blush now. :)

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -Grandpa's Thylox Sulfur Soap

on 7/21/2018 6:39:00 PM

This soap has saved my skin! I was going through a period of stress, which unfortunately led to a great amount of stress acne. Normal acne mess like benzoyl peroxide burn my skin and my usual SA cleanser was doing nothing. My skin is pretty sensitive, so I saw that sulfur usually helps as a last resort for sensitive acne-prone skin. I found this on Amazon for a really decent price and noticed a difference after the first night I used this! The smell can be very eggy and it stings your eyes like nobody’s business, but I have been using this every night for the past 2 years and only get small hormonal breakouts on my chin. Seriously, but this!!

Liquid -Unlisted Brand -LA Girl Pro Matte Foundation

I ordered this online at HB Beauty bar. I took a chance with my shade based on you tube reviews. I got the shade golden bronze. It feels light on the skin and comfortable.This color is deep yellow with a slight orange undertone not too orange in my opinion but suited my skin tone just right. I use soap and glory one heck of a blot primer with this and it comes out beautiful. I moisturize, apply primer and then apply the foundation. I have combination/oily skin and combination/dry depending on the season. I use a damp sponge with this to add hydration as it can be a tad bit drying on my skin since I use lots of acne fighting cleansers on my face. A flat top brush gives a fuller coverage. I dampened the brush with water and squeeze out the excess water when I use a brush to add more hydration. It wears well throughout the day and looks flawless. This foundation has great staying power. Everything you put on top of this foundation comes out beautiful and doesn't get removed as you apply your concealer powder, and hightlighter. Its definitely become one of my favorite foundations!!!!!!!!
