Toners - Silk Naturals - 2% BHA Toner

4.0

Pretty good BHA however, I don't like the way it gets foamy on the cotton pad. It's gentle, a little bit drying as it is a very pared down formula. I appreciate it for what it is and have purchased it a few times to be sure.

Toners - Dear Klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Toner

I really wish I could love these types of "toners" but it all seems to really irritate my skin. I have a bottle I will never use. So much wasted money on the "layering" method to try to bring some radiance back and it really does seem like less is more for me. Reading my reviews from the mid 2009's it seems that's what worked best for me.

Cleansers - Jan Marini Skin Research - Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

Yeah this cleanser isnt great. I like the brightening effects but it's really clogging my pores. There's no "follicular cleansing" going on here. There is some mild surface exfoliation but really, one could get better results from something from Neostrata.

If you like Glossier MJC you will LOVE this cleanser. It's a lot cleaner than Glossier's formula: no scent, no irritants, same cleansing agent (contact lens solution) and crystal clear. No residue and no dryness. This cleanser, like Glossier's MJC, does *not* foam. It's a comforting, thick gel that removes everything. No need to double cleanse rinses perfectly clean. I love …Read more

Hair Treatments - Deciem - The Ordinary Hair Care Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density

Oh my gosh what is this magical liquid?? I started using this about four days ago and yes, it does increase the density of my hair without making it weird. I wash it out in the morning (or have it on under my cap at work) and my hair is the same, only denser. It really is!! I don't know what is making it happen but I will keep using it and change my review if my opinion changes.

I bought a travel size to see how I would like this. At first, I really liked it. Scentless, easy to rinse off and left my skin looking hydrated and supple. After 4 weeks of use found it was irritating my skin and causing my rosacea to flare up. So back to Dermalogica resurfacing cleanser.
UPDATE

I was wrong. I love this cleanser. It's very very expensive but nothing beats …

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Good Genes

I am sorry, I really am. I hate Good Genes.
Yes, it brightened my skin overall, after three weeks it did *nothing* to my melasma. My skin texture got worse and I started to get blackheads and pimples in weird places like on the side on my face next to my ear. I have never had a blackhead there in my life.
With only 4% free acid this is absolutely not worth the cost. I returned this …

Up to this point, after using this cleanser for a week I can say "yes" to buy it again. I may change my mind but I don't think so.
This cleanser is very good in my opinion. It hasn't dried my skin out (so far) and rinses clean. It is really fun to use. You put the cleanser on your face and rub it in for 30 seconds and then stop...and let it foam on your skin. I wait …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

Aug/13/2018

I don't understand the bad reviews. This is a terrific sunscreen. It is a high percentage of zinc, I don't expect it to be as elegant as some other formulations I have tried at higher price points. I personally don't mind the little bit of sheen. I would not call it a white cast. It does not bother me too much, I rub it in well, let it dry down. It works, it's a good price and …Read more
