Masks - LUSH - BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask

4.0

Mar/10/2015

One of my favorite Lush masks for exfoliating. It is a creamy clay based mask with ground almonds, honey, and seaweed. Essential oils of rose, patchouli and rosemary add to its scent, but it's not that strong. I smell more of the almonds and seaweed more than anything. Very refreshing to apply out of the fridge and there is enough slip to massage around the face. I let it sit for 10 minutes …Read more

Masks - LUSH - Cupcake Fresh Face Mask

Mar/10/2015

This was my first foray into Lush masks after I received it as a gift. I like to use this when my pores are congested or during the time I have hormonal breakouts - really helps to clear up any blackheads and calm any emerging pimples. This mask is harder to spread especially after refrigeration so I had to let it warm to room temperature a bit before applying. It's a mud mask with a very …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2014

This is my favorite Kiehl's product and I always have it on hand. It's the gentlest and most hydrating eye cream. Perfect when I'm having my seasonal allergies to alleviate the itching and flaking around my eye areas. Sometimes I'll even use this as an all over face cream during the winter months. I don't know if it would work for everyone, but if I keep this …Read more

Moisturizers - Aesop - Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream

Love the sandalwood scent so much, however this caused some breakouts in my t-zone - my indicator that a product is too rich for my skin. I also have sensitivity to lavender oil, which this cream contains so that also may be a factor to my breakouts. I'll use up the rest for hand and cuticle cream.

Scrubs - Aesop - Tea-Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant

Aug/22/2014

I would have given a higher rating if this didn't give me breakouts every time I used it. I like the versatility of being able to mix this into a mask or cleanser to turn them into exfoliating treatments. Perhaps it was too astringent or too coarse for my skin. The packaging is also a little awkward - not travel friendly - as the rubber stopper doesn't seal securely.

Cleansers - Aesop - Fabulous Face Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2014

My skin typically prefers milk or cream cleansers. Most gel-based face washes are too drying. This one by Aesop is surprisingly gentle even though it foams a little bit. It has an olive oil base and contains extracts of bergamot, rosemary and chamomile. I like it best as a morning face wash. It doesn't remove makeup as thoroughly as I would like, so if I use it in the evenings I always …Read more

Skincare - Kiehl's - Oil Eliminator Refreshing Shine Control Toner for Men

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2014

One good thing I can say for this product is that it gives a refreshing burst of coolness on application - feels great especially in sweaty warm weather. I could say the same for any alcohol-based toner in a spray bottle though. The glycerin in this leaves a sticky after feel once the product dries, and after a few minutes I find that this actually increases the oil production in my skin …Read more

Conditioner - Aesop - Volumising Conditioner

Jul/15/2014

A light cream conditioner which has a stronger herbal scent than the matching shampoo. Contains extracts of bergamot mint and fennel seed. I like that this adds back moisture to my hair without weighing it down, even if I massage it into my scalp my hair doesn't get oily at the roots or fall flat throughout the day. I'm really enjoying Aesop's volumising haircare - they definitely …Read more

Shampoo - Aesop - Volumising Shampoo

Jul/15/2014

This is definitely the most expensive shampoo I've purchased, but surprisingly I'm really loving the formula...it's a low lathering gel (not sulfate free though) with a light herbal citrus fragrance - kind of like ginger ale. It contains extracts of fennel seed, peppermint leaf and rosemary leaf. Aesop's shampoos are meant to cleanse the scalp primarily so I make sure to …Read more

Cleansers - Kiehl's - Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2014

The newest face cleanser from Kiehl's and their first which is sulfate and soap-free. I was excited to try this because I like the matching calendula toner. Love the pump dispenser and the brown apothecary colored plastic bottle. This is a clear gel that lightly foams when mixed with water. I detect a slight lemony fragrance. After cleansing my skin definitely feels squeaky clean - more so …Read more
