I love the finish of this foundation, it's semi-matte and glowy without looking too oily, looks very skin-like. The packaging is a plastic tube with a pump, it's lightweight, hygienic and easy to use. The foundation has medium coverage, feels lightweight on the skin and lasts quite a while, even in the T-zone where I can get pretty oily. The only problem is the shade selection. 10 Fair …Read more

Lumene renamed their popular Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail, I am not sure if it was reformulated as well. Seems like everyone has used it at some point so I gave it a try. This oil promises hydration and brighter skin. The packaging is a pretty glass bottle with the bi-phase oil in different colors​. You shake the bottle to mix up the oils and push the pump to disperse the product. The pump feels …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Deciem - The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

I need something light and hydrating to use something under my eyes since it helps to have a good canvas for a concealer. I have huge purple-bluish hereditary circles that I cover pretty much every day. I know that no skincare can help me with them so I don't expect this from the serum. It does hydrate and doesn't leave any greasy residue. This serum is a thick transparent liquid with a …Read more

Got a deluxe sample of this. I refuse to use moisturizers during the day since they make my skin even oilier. This one, however, keeps my face looking okay for several hours. This effect doesn't last a whole day, but it is still better than nothing. I wouldn't call it mattifying, it looks more like a healthy glow. The lotion is also provides a bit of hydration and does not dry out the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane

Got this to get benefits from retinoic acid without irritation. I have a normal to oily skin prone to blocked pores and dehydration. This product is a thick oily liquid (apparently squalane is not "real" oil, just has similar properties) with barely noticeable "medicinal" scent. It spreads easily but doesn't sink completely into my skin. I do enjoy adding a drop of pure …Read more

Toners - Lumene - Nordic C (Valo) Glow Lumenessence Brightening Beauty Lotion

I tried other beauty lotion (blue bottle) from Lumene before and was hoping for something similar with added vitamin C benefit. Well, instead of thick hydrating liquid this lotion feels like a regular toner. It has a waterlike consistency and citrusy-floral scent. It supposed to be a bit exfoliating, but my skin is used to acids so I did not notice much difference. The hydration effect is also …Read more

I was excited to try this serum since I like chemical exfoliants and wanted to try something more gentle than glycolic or lactic acid. It is a transparent liquid with a quite light consistency and no scent. At application, it somehow feels oily but absorbs quickly. The packaging is pretty typical for The Ordinary, a dark glass bottle with a dropper. The serum provides light exfoliation and …Read more

This serum contains niacinamide and zinc, and is supposed to help with breakouts and redness. The packaging is quite cute, and the dropper works well. I like the consistensy, the serum is quite easy to spread. I don't think it worked that well for my congestion-prone skin, I had better results with analog from The Ordinary. It costs more as well so I will not repurchase.

That's a lovely hydrating serum. Very light, but it definitely makes a difference. I didn't like it that much during the winter since it was too light to help my skin then. However, during the summer it's perfect for my combination skin.

Got a trial size of this cream. I didn't expect to like it so much. It has light texture and hydrates well. Didn't block my pores. It does not have any scent, but the texture is lovely so it still feels luxurious. Too bad it is not cruelty free.
