Nov/13/2017

I have been on a drugstore product kick lately, and got this as part of a Target haul.

Background: I have very dry skin that is in reasonably good condition. My main concerns are redness on my cheeks from rosacea and some uneven skintone. No real texture issues, and my skin is not prone to breakouts.

This is an excellent light foundation / tinted moisturizer if you …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%

Apr/13/2017

Background: I have dry, sensitive, and rosacea-prone skin that is starting to show fine lines in the under eye area when I smile.

First off, I love vitamin C products. It has been part of my morning skincare routine for years. And I generally prefer magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP) over l-ascorbic acid (LAA) even though LAA is considered the gold standard of vitamin C …

Background: I have dry, sensitive, and rosacea-prone skin that is starting to show lines under eyes when I smile.

I have been using this product off and on for the past 2 months. It's something I really wanted to like because I have been interested in azelaic acid for quite sometime now (supposed to be very good for reducing rosacea-related redness). But alas, I don't like …

Aug/24/2016

This is a HG skincare product for me. I have repurchased it 4+ times. My skin is very
very dry. Main concerns are dullness, rosacea, and starting signs of aging.

I started using this product maybe 2 - 3 years ago. And I loved it for what it did for my skin and repurchased it a couple of times.

Then, as a skincare junkie, I started trying out other acids and peels, and …

Lotions/ Creams - lavera - Basis Sensitive All-Round Cream

Jul/05/2016

I'm currently living in Germany, and Lavera is one of the popular organic lines here. I was told the products are comparable to Dr. Hauschka, but at 1/3 the price point.

The All-Round cream is probably one of the best body / hand cream I have used. It has organic shea butter and almond oil, so it's very rich and moisturizing. But it sinks into my skin so fast without any …

Mar/27/2016

Bourjois is by far my favorite brand for foundations (d/s or h/e). I think I have loved every foundation from the brand: Healthy Mix, Healthy Mix Serum, CC cream, and now the City Radiance.

According to the product description, it promises a "fresh, natural-looking radiant complexion". It also has a SPF30 sun protection courtesy of nano TiO2.

The foundation has a …

fromDani

Mar/21/2016

Background: I have VERY dry rosacea skin. For years, I was a sunscreen fanatic and wore European sunscreens exclusively. I have stayed away from high protection euro s/s for a while now, mainly because my rosacea got worse, and my skin simply couldn't tolerate a lot of euro sunscreen anymore.

A few days ago, I found myself inside a French pharmacy, that plus the fear of …

Sep/30/2015

I have a weakness for nude lipsticks, and I've tried a lot of them. Saint Peachy Nude is one of my favorite.

After lots of trial & error, I realized that best nude lip color for me is a warm, sheerish, light but not too light nude, because I have cool, pigmented lips.

Saint Peachy Nude is exactly that. Throwing in a moisturizing formula and a yummy vanilla scent …

I think this maybe my all-time favorite foundation.
<p>
My skintone is NC20 - NC25 with strong yellow undertone. Fawn is a near perfect match for me. Before Fawn was available, I was using Dior Airflash in Linen. The two foundations are very, very similar. Dior Airflash has a dewier finish. Sephora has more of a satin matte finish.

Application method: spray …

Nov/26/2014

I have very dry and sensitive skin, so I have been using oils to moisturize my face for quite some time. My all time favorite oil is maracuja oil or passionfruit oil, which I purchase online.

But my interest was piqued when I saw the L'Oreal face oil. So I decided to give it try.

The first week, I was quite happy with it. It's not as moisturizing as some of the …
