Treatments (Face) - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Pore Refiner

1.0

Jan/08/2014

I got this hoping it would help me not turn so oily later in the day. For the first week I used it, it seemed okay. It didn't quite control my oil during the whole day, but at least it didn't break me out either. Only, the more I used it, the drier my skin got no matter how much I moisturized. I'm not joking, my skin is as oily as it gets and products rarely dry it out to the point …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Derma Roller

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2013

I didn't know what to expect when I got my derma roller a few months back (like 3-4 months). I knew what I wanted to happen - I wanted to minimize old and discolored acne scars, and I wanted to improve my over all skin texture, and if possible, also help some deep acne scars get "filled" up. But I also knew it'd take several uses before I'd be able to see much of any …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DECLÉOR - Aromessence Ylang Ylang

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2013

I can't say I'm in love with this product. It hasn't performed miracles on my skin, and I've been using it for several months now. It's a good buffer for when my skin gets dehydrated but any good oil help with that, and as the ylang ylang oil is quite expensive I won't be getting it again. I'll stick with my jojoba oil. Plus the packaging kinda sucks, even …Read more

Masks - Mario Badescu - Healing & Soothing Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2013

I suffer from cystic acne, which is a bitch to heal so I decided to get this mask to help speed up the healing and lessen the redness from the pimples. I tried it two times and each time I ended up with new pimples. As the mask was the only new product in my skincare routine it's definitely the culprit. Which is annoying as I've loved all the other products I've bought from MB in …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DECLÉOR - Aromessence Ylang Ylang Night Balm

4.0

Jul/16/2013

I like this balm, a lot. I especially like how easy it is to use as much or as little as I want depending on how much moisture my skin need. The smell makes it comforting to use as well, which I like, as my nightly facial routine have always been a way for me to relax and unwind.

It haven't broken me out yet, and I've been using it for a good month or so already. The fact …

Foundations - Lily Lolo - Mineral Foundation (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2013

I recently decided to buy a new foundation, and after much research I decided to try Lily Lolo's mineral foundation. I got samples in Blondie, China Doll and Barely Buff. The samples arrived quickly and I've spent the last week trying them on and evaluating them. And finally decided on getting China Doll as it really was a perfect match for me.

What I like the most about the …

Hair Treatments - PANTENE - Normal-Thick Hair 2-Minute Deep Conditioner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2013

Got this on a whim. I needed something extra for my hair because it was such a mess. Got this at the supermarket because it was the only brand I'd yet to try and I hadn't fallen in love with any of the other brands.

I didn't expect miracles from the product to begin with. So it was with curious interest that I tried it. I used it for five minutes instead of two, used it …

Toners - Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

4.0

Jun/05/2013

My review isn't for Bragg's ACV, but for another organic brand. I've been using it as a toner for several months now and I have to admit I'm impressed. I use ACV mixed with some tea tree oil every evening and it really works well on my skin. It exfoliates, deep cleans and doesn't dry my skin out at all. It's almost as good as Mario Badescu's Glycolic grapefruit …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLARINS - Truly Matte Pore Minimizing Serum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2013

I'm sad to say that this product didn't do anything for me, it didn't lessen my pore size, clean out my pores or work as oil control. I even experimented with doing a good scrub or using an excellent face mask before putting the serum on. It didn't make any noticeable difference. Plus the first couple of weeks it broke me out before my skin got used to …Read more
