Nail Tools - REVLON - Crystal File

Useless! It is slightly more rough than a buffer. If you use this to shape your nails or soften sharp snaggy edges, you will be doing the one fingernail for 5 minutes or more. Waste of money.

Treatments (Face) - SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Pros:
- very moisturizing

Cons:
- expensive as it does not work for me
- can be a bit sticky on the face so I used it on my neck (perfect!)

Was looking for night treatment on my neck as Rosehip oil (undiluted) stains my bed sheets and blouses. This is good but is too expensive. It did not improve texture or anything on my face or neck.

Pros:

Moisturizers - Lancôme - Visionnaire Advanced Multi-Correcting Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

Pros:
- moisturizing
- skin feels silky
- enjoyable scent (but could be polarizing so try first)

Cons:
- no SPF
- jar packaging could be unsanitary
- expensive for lack of promised results (more luminous, reduced appearance of wrinkles)

I have a feeling this silky texture and moisturized skin is possible from inexpensive Olay or other drugstore …

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2018

Pros:
- good sweet grapefruit scent that dries down to hints of sage
- may be appropriate for office where cubicles are the norm, for church, or dinner (does not overpower with food scents)

Cons:
- pricey for poor longevity
- longevity is only two hours before it is nose-to-wrist

One spray on me:
Longevity: 2 hours then skin scent
Sillage: …

Good treat but not practical on the wallet.

light-brown beige like latte with hint of yellow. This is the Vinylux not Shellac.

- easy to remove
- great neutral
- dries fast

Cons:
- on my NC25-30 with yellow skintone, looks unflattering yellow buff-beige
