Lotions/ Creams - Vanicream - Lite Lotion

Unfortunately something in this causes an itchy rash under my eyes and along my jaw. I wanted to like this because its ingredient list is fairly short/simple, it's marketed for sensitive skin and lots of people on the skincareaddiction Reddit seem to like it. I wish I knew what the ingredient culprit was, as most of the ingredients are not listed as irritants on cosdna. However several of …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - 3-In-1 Professional Straight Brush Mascara

5.0

I love this mascara in brown black. It's like my lashes but better. Darkens wonderfully without being harsh against my pale skin, lengthens a little, and best of all - makes me look like I have a million lashes. It's very good at separating your lashes and looks very natural. If you like coarser thicker looking lashes this is not for you, but if you want to look like you have more of …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup (24 hour formula)

Dec/28/2013

I got on here to write a review saying that I couldn't figure out why this used to work for me, but now breaks me out without fail. Then I saw the reformulation in the title and it all makes sense. This new formula seems like the old excepting my skin, which is sensitive but not particularly clog-prone, HATES it. (I use the combo/oily version). I don't get why they reformulated when it …Read more

Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

I just don't like this stuff. I remember trying it years ago and not liking it then either but figured I'd give it another try. I appreciate the ingredients this has (no sulfates, has ceramides and hyaluronic acid), but compared to Cetaphil, it just doesn't clean my skin as well - and Cetaphil itself takes some getting used to at first. It also has a slightly chemical scent, which …Read more

Skincare - Face - Avalon Organics - Vitamin C Moisture Plus Lotion w/ SPF 15

Jul/06/2013

Not bad overall but something in it irritated my face a little, causing a slight burning sensation. Also seemed to be really hard to wash off, even with oil cleansing. It left the typical sunscreen film I've learned to recognize when sunscreen isn't removed properly, yet oil cleansing should've removed it. It did sink in really well, and didn't appear greasy - just didn't …Read more

My haircolor fades fast anyway but I swear this strips it out, like, instantly. Not only that, it dries it out. I haven't been impressed with anything in the DE Coconut line (the body wash was drying as well), but I did like DE's Tea Tree Therapeutic Shampoo.

This just wasn't for my combination skin. I realize because it has spf, it needs a little time to sink in, but it never seemed to. It sat right on top the whole time and had a very tacky texture. Made my face look like I hadn't washed it.. just really oily and sticky feeling. Some moisturizers make your face look shinier, but it will still feel clean.. this made it look actually dirty …Read more

Deodorants - Ban - Sweet Surrender

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2013

This deodorant (now called Sweet Simplicity) is not perfect but so far is the best I have found to date. While it's not ironclad odor protection, it helps significantly and doesn't mix with my body odor to amplify it and make it worse like so many other deodorants do. It also doesn't give me an itchy rash like most other deodorants do. It is way better than any of the …Read more
