Shampoo -Dr. Organic -Royal Jelly Shampoo

on 7/21/2018 2:26:00 AM

I have wavy dark brown thick hair.
Long story short, I trial-ed and error-ed my way to realize my scalp would get irritated by SLS. The milder shampoo, I used, the better it was. Soon enough, though, there would be excessive dandruff - like dryness on my scalp.
Dr. Organic's Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly were the first such shampoos, I used. Two years on, I still standby them. My scalp is 97% less irritated.
The only con is I've to wash my hair twice, as it doesn't seem to get fully absorbed in the first wash.
Texture: it's viscous, imagine real honey hut without the stickiness factor.
Smell: very natural, barely-there honey smell. Which signifies that its more on the natural side.
Conditioner: the conditioner has a stronger smell but is still gentle on the hair leaving it soft.

Blush -Too Faced -Papa Don't Peach

Okay so I love the packaging. I will say that. So that gets 5 lipsticks. The price is a little high but still decent because you do you get a ton of product so I gave it 3 lipsticks. But overall it gets only 3 because sometimes I can get lucky and get this blush to work for me but other times it always comes out looking like a highlighter rather than a blush with all that shimmer in it. I find that the peachy golden shimmer isn't flattering if even slightly overdone on my skin and I'm in my late 20s yes but sheesh my skin is still nice and unwrinkled and I'm the right amount of tan that this shade should look pretty good on my skintone . If I go in reeeaalllyy light with this blush the pigmentation is lacking but the shimmer is just right. If I apply it and get it to just the right pigment opacity then now it looks like I've smeared loose eyeshadow all over my face. It's really tricky. It gets hard pan super easy too but it seems to be a good thing in this case. Cuts down on the shimmer..forreal. lol. I recently scraped the hard pan off cause I was out of tape and it is so shimmery I can't stand it all over again. It's also really dry. But yeah idk how to feel about this. I like Milani luminoso better and I guess luminoso is supposed to be the dupe for this one so that says a lot. It has more of a sheen rather than sparkley shinmery micro glitter stuff like this blush does and is much more flattering as a whole. So yeah. Idk where I stand with this or how I feel about it.

Mascara -Arbonne -It's A Long Story Mascara

on 7/21/2018 12:45:00 AM

I also got a sample of this mascara (generous sample) and I think it's wonderful. Really gives me long, dark lashes with lots of volume. No clumps, no smudging - as long as I don't use it on my lower lashes, which would be really difficult anyway with the large brush!

Non-irritating formula, which I like. But, the price. This is just way more than I am willing to spend on mascara. I could maybe go to $25, but there are mascaras over $70 these days. Are those products SO much better that they justify that price? Maybe, but I also think maybe this is a matter of distinguishing yourself from the ordinary people who think such pricing is absurd.

I have several other samples from this company that I'm a little afraid to use, because I'll probably love them but never be able to justify buying them!

Shampoo -Live Clean -(Pink Fire) Colour Protect Shampoo

This increased the longevity of the colour in my hair. I was trying out crazy colors like pink, blue, etc. (colours that have a very short life) and I found the colour lasting twice as long if not more when I used live clean. I also need to wash my hair less often because its sulphate free.


Shampoo -Live Clean -Apple Cider Detox Shampoo

on 7/21/2018 12:11:00 AM

I use this as a weekly detox to get rid of any buildup from hair styling products and oils. It's a strong product so you shouldn't use it more than once a week as it could be too drying.

I started using it when I had a greasy patch on the crown of my head, and regardless of how thorough I was with my other shampoo, it wouldn't go away completely.


Hair Treatments -Live Clean -Exotic Nectar - Argan Oil Leave In Spray

I love this lightweight conditioning spray. I have very dry hair that's impossible to comb when wet (from years of bleaching and coloring my hair). After spraying this in my damp hair I'm able to comb through with ease. My hair is detangled, smoothed and generally feels better. Its light enough that I dont get that greasy feeling the next day.


Loose Powders -Cover FX -Matte Setting Powder

on 7/20/2018 11:57:00 PM

I have combination skin with a very oily t-zone. This setting powder works amazingly, I use it over primer only, or when I'm doing a full face of makeup. Sets the makeup for long lasting results, mattefies, and blurs pores.

For those complaining about coverage, this is not a product for coverage. This is for setting makeup, thus why it is somewhat translucent. If you're looking for coverage try their pressed powders.

One of my favourite bronzers because there is absolutely no shimmer. Goes on nicely and works very well for my light-medium skin tone.

The brush that comes with is pretty useless. Use a proper makeup brush.


Mascara -MISSHA -4D Mascara

Bought this coz it’s cheap. My eyes tend to get infections (styes- those pimple-like bumps around the eye area) if I use a mascara for more than 3 months, so I tend to go for the cheaper mascaras.

This mascara gives a very natural finish. As some pointed out, it’s formula is on the drier side. The length and volume given is on the lesser end, so the overall look is natural. Does help to keep a curl reasonably well. Doesn’t smudge even though I live in a hot humid country.

If you’re looking for a cheap, natural looking mascara, this is ok. If you’re looking for drama and that falsies look, look elsewhere.

Great lip liners, and a good range of colors available. Long lasting and waterproof, I use it all over my lips for long lasting color incase my lipstick fades. I've woken up the next morning with it still on my lips after a long night out.

Fragrances -Guerlain -Mon Guerlain

I received a sample of this last November and tried it out for a while. I am super sensitive to perfumes (many cause migraines for me) so I have to tread lightly when trying new scents. Not only did this pass the migraine test, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it once the sample ran out. I treated myself to a bottle and it had become my favorite winter fragrance . Its warm vanilla scent feels like I’m wrapping myself in a cozy blanket. It’s comforting but not cloyingly sweet - it’s sophisticated yet can be worn every day. I love it!

Liquid -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

A great lightweight, light-medium coverage foundation that gives a natural look and no cakiness. Very spreadable, a little goes a long way. This is my foundation of choice for the summer.

Make sure to give the bottle a good shake before using. I didn't use it for a while and forgot to shake, ended up giving me an orangey tone that time.

It's very liquidy so I find applying with a foundation brush to get coverage, followed by a beauty blender to deal with any streaks gives the best results.

Moisturizers -CeraVe -Moisturizing Lotion

Used this moisturizer combined with the cleanser to repair my skin after a bad reaction from a previous product (not sure if it was over-exfoliating or allergic, but it was bad).

I really love this product. You get a lot in the bottle, and a little goes a long way for my combination skin, so it's an amazing value. I use it over my face, neck, and decolletage.
