Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Mandelic Acid + HA

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.

A really nice moisturizing lotion. It is a thick liquid with quite a perfumy scent. My skin is combination to oily, prone to dehydration and blocked pores. I use it every morning and evening after cleansing, just patting on moist skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, panthenol, urea, etc. I did not notice any breakouts or pilling, my skin is plumped and glowing. It is very cheap for what you get …Read more

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

Got a mini version in the mascara set. I like the look it gives my lashes, full and saturated without going to spider legs territory. It is a bit thick, so you have to work it for a bit. Maybe the spoolie brush is the problem, I do prefer ones with straight bristles. There is some fallout at the end of the day, so I don't think I would repurchase.

An effective and trustworthy exfoliating toner. I love chemical exfoliation, it is the only thing that keeps my combination to oily and congested-prone skin healthy. This toner works really well. I do experience some mild stinging sometimes, so be careful if your skin is sensitive. The bottle is huuuge, I got kind of bored of it. It is unscented and has a mild vinegar-like scent because of the …Read more

It is a good no-frills moisturizer. I only moisturize during the night, and it is perfect for the job. Works well with other layers and does not break me out. It is unscented and quite thick. I feel it is a bit hard to spread out, so I sometimes mix it with a serum or oil.

Got a sample of this. The finish is amazing, dewy, healthy, perfect skin. And I do not look oily during the day, which pretty much never happens. The undertone is a bit off for me, too cold for my pale warm-toned skin, so I would not use it all the time. But the finish is tempting.

Lotions/ Creams - NUXE - Huile Prodigieuse (Multi-Purpose Dry Oil)

Got myself a bottle, but I didn't know what to do with it. I ended up using it as face oil during the night. Luckily, it doesn't clog up my skin. It moisturizes nicely, but I would like to find something more suitable for my combination oily skin. Plus it is not cruelty-free.
