Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - DEFENSE Essential Glow Moisturizer SPF 30

2.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

I received a travel sized version of this moisturiser along with my PC order & I've used this enough to give it my thoughts.

The product is a mineral based sunscreen that has a tint to it so no white cast. It has a medium/thick consistency & has minimal scent. States that it’s suitable for all skin types.

I am not a fan of this moisturiser. I have dry/combination …

Hair Treatments - Kérastase - Oleo-Relax Hair Oil Serum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Oleo Relax Serum has been highly rated & raved about for YEARS! I’m nearly certain they have changed the formula in recent times as I used to love this many years ago.
The formula is a watery, silicone oil texture that has a very pleasant floral scent. I feel all Kèrastase products are heavily perfumed.
I have wavy, longish thick hair and this serum does very little to benefit it; …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Mascara - Carbon Black

2 months ago

I’m definitely in the minority here as this seems to be quite highly rated! I have long eyelashes that need a bit of volume & curl. There are so many problems I have with this mascara.

1. The wand is long, thin & bendy which I initially thought would be great for lower lashes, however the formula is so wet that if I blink, it transfers all over my eyes.
2. Doesn't hold …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Creme Cup

5.0

MAC Creme Cup is a gorgeous and girly light pink. I always wear it with Rimmel lipliner in ‘Eastend Snob’. I am very pale skinned and it looks so pretty. I feel this would look beautiful on all skin tones.

Texture and wearability is typical for cremesheen lipsticks. Smooth, creamy but does need reapplied throughout the day. Delicious sweet vanilla MAC scent. Pretty light pink lipstick …

Liquid - bareMinerals - BarePro Liquid Foundation

I was matched with the shade ‘Fair’ and was excited to try this foundation out.
Initially, it looked amazing on my skin. Perfect shade for my very pale skin. I applied it via a damp beauty sponge and my skin looked smooth, pore-less & soft matte. I thought I was on to a winner!
Fast forward about 3-4 hours and it looked horrendous. It started to break up and look scaly. It created …

Sunscreen - Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30

2.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I generally am a fan of PC products however this sunscreen moisturiser is a fail for me. It comes out in a thick, white cream and has a mild cucumber scent. I really have to blend & work it into my skin otherwise it leaves white patches. I have very pale skin so I would imagine this would be extremely annoying for darker skin tones!

The most bizarre thing about this moisturiser is …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I can 100% understand why this BHA liquid exfoliant has very mixed reviews. It does take time and experimentation to find the perfect technique for your own skin.
My skin is dry/combination and I would suffer from blackheads/congestion in my t-zone. Having never used BHA before I was a bit intimidated so I purchased the CALM 1% BHA lotion. I used that every other day for about 2 months. I …

Cleansers - LUSH - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

1.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Fresh Farmacy is marketed at sensitive or irritated skin. Now let me tell you, it’s about as “skin calming” as rubbing sandpaper on your face.

This soap is probably one of Lush’s worse skincare offerings. If you have sensitive or dry skin, back the HELL AWAY from this soap! Like RUN! It sucks every drop of moisture or hydration from your face and yet leaves a weird, uncomfortable …

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

This cleanser is my absolute favourite facial cleanser. It is very difficult to find a good balance for my dry/combination skin and this is just brilliant. The formula is white and creamy, it foams up a little when water is added.
The most important aspects of this cleanser is that it leaves my skin feeling clean & fresh, not striped/tight, doesn’t clog pores and it’s …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

Clinique 'Take the Day Off' cleansing balm is brilliant if you want a unscented and fuss-free cleanser. It comes in solid form that melts into an oil with the heat of your hands. I enjoy giving myself a lil facial massage whilst using this :)
I use this as my first step if I'm double cleansing after wearing heavier makeup or feeling congested. I personally always like to …
