Treatments (Face) - Obagi - Professional-C Serum 15%

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2017

I guess I have extremely sensitive skin, as I cannot seem to find a vitamin c serum that does not break me out--unfortunately this one is no exception.
The ingredients are so simple and limited, with no oils, and people say the 15% does not break them out--maybe I am the exception, but for those of you with sensitive, acne-prone skin, if you can, I recommend first getting a sample and …

Skincare - Face - Drunk Elephant - C-Firma Day Serum

I feel the need to warn others, since this caused me to break out in acne on my face. Please beware if you are acne-prone.
I also try to avoid plastic packaging, and this is supposedly a natural product (I do love that they do not test on animals), so I'm surprised that at least the inner encasement is not glass (since plastic's chemicals can leach into products).
This was a …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara

Aug/29/2015

I have repurchased this mascara multiple times because it is the best natural (paraben-free, doesn't test on animals) mascara I have found.
I love that you can buy a mini size, which, although I use it every day, lasts me the three months they say is the maximum one should use a mascara before throwing it out.
It volumizes and lengthens, and doesn't smear the way other …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Naturals Green Brand Tepez Cream

Aug/29/2015

I first heard about the ingredient Tepezchuite in an interview with Salma Hayek, in which she said that she has been using the ingredient forever (and she looks amazing!). She said that when she took it to a lab, they were amazed by the power of it, so she decided to start her own line of cosmetics using that ingredient.
Her products are more expensive and less natural, so I ordered this …

Moisturizers - 100% Pure - Coffee Cherry Caffeine Face Cream

5.0

Jan/05/2015

This is the only cruelty-free all-natural facial moisturizer that does not break me out, therefore I will continue to purchase. While it is not actually as moisturizing as I need, I just resolve that issue by adding a couple of drops of organic jojoba oil.
I am not a big fan of the packaging, as a huge amount of paper is wasted in the outer container and after using about 2/3 of the product …

Moisturizers - Biologique Recherche - creme dermopurifiante

Nov/17/2014

I am apparently in the minority, but this moisturizer broke me out--not terribly (not cysctic), but still.
To be fair, I also used their Lotion P50V 1970 (as was recommended), which stings. Together, my face broke out worse than usual.
I've since switched to Acure Sensitive moisturizer, and my skin feels less sensitive and (knock on wood) seems to be breaking out less.
The …

Moisturizers - Acure Organics - Gotu Kola Stem Cell + 1% Chlorella Day Cream for normal to dry skin

Oct/07/2014

This is actually a review for the moisturizer for sensitive skin and also the one for acne-prone skin (I've tried them both).

Like the previous reviewer, I have sensitive skin and a tendency to break out in cystic acne. This is an all natural moisturizer that doesn't sting my skin or eyes and sinks in and moisturizes my dry skin without leaving it feeling tacky. It has an …

Oct/07/2014

I am so upset with myself for wasting so much money on this product--which gave me cystic acne.
In my search for a one-step miracle product, I bought into the hype and, despite the fact that I have never in my life spent so much money on any one product, ordered this "moisturizer".
The jar is so tiny that I did follow the usage instructions and only used a pea-sized amount for …

BB Cream - Boscia - BB cream SPF 27 ++

Jul/01/2014

The reasons I like this BB cream enough to repurchase are:
1.) it has physical mineral sunscreen
2.) it doesn't break me out
3.) it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin
4.) it has no parabens
5.) it lasts (even through swimming!)
6.) it evens out my skin-tone
7.) it's the best I can find (and I've tried a ton)
8.) it's easy to find …

BB Cream - Supergoop! - CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 35

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2014

This has an incredibly high amount of mineral sun-blockers (20% zinc and 2% titanium dioxide).
As long as I exfoliate first, this applies nicely--dewy not greasy finish (although I mix a couple of drops of jojoba oil in with my moisturizer to give a dewier finish). I have medium-toned Caucasian skin with pink undertones, and this matches the undertones but is a tiny bit too dark.
The …
