Toners - HADA LABO - Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion

3.0

While I generally speak highly of this toner and find it effective, I find myself reaching for others quite often. I do suspect that my skin does not like this in large quantities, which is problematic as I seldom apply just one layer of toner. I tend to get tiny red spots when I do, not many enough for it to be truly noticeable, but enough for me to find them annoying.

I like this product, but I’m not in love with it; meaning if I find something else I would not miss it. It’s moisturising, but it’s not enough on it’s own – I usually apply several layers of toner prior to applying this. It’s smoothing, but so are many other moisturisers. It’s cheap-ish, but you also need to apply quite a lot of product (which you don’t get a lot of). I give it a high rating as …Read more

I tried to love this product for a long time, but it hates me. At first I was like it’s not you, it’s me – maybe it’s just my hormonal acne throwing a fit! But the bumps and redness persisted. Then I thought: it’s not you, it’s this other moisturiser I’ve used half my life! Which of course it was not. It was you, Glossier Priming Moisturiser.

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Leegeehaam Grow Tea Tree 80 Cream

3.0

Bought this because there was a 3 for 2 deal on Leegeehaam Grow products. I did not expect anything in particular, since I just bought it as part of a deal, however considering it wasn't too cheap I still had reasonable hopes. My skin is very dry, and since I already had an oil as part of my routine, I thought this cream would be moisturising enough. It feels moisturising when you apply it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Well. That did nothing. I started getting a bit of acne and overall redness on my skin, and was recommended this product by a friend. Nothing happened after about a month of use. Stopped using it and my skin felt more moisturised, I guess that really says it all.

Makeup Brushes - Clarisonic - Sonic Foundation Brush Head

4.0

This can work really well, or pretty badly. I’ve tried it with several foundations and come to the conclusion that the thinner the foundation, the better. Using a full coverage foundation can have a slightly cakey result in my experience. Also, having dry skin and using this brush can be a hassle since it tends to grab onto those areas and create a very textured look.
I do not necessarily …

I should preface this review by stating that my eyebrows are already full and I am a spoiled brat in the brow department. Somehow I still bought this product and expected it to change my entire life!!! and surprisingly enough, it didn’t.

Ok, so I bought this in clear. It’s really an ok product by any means. It does not make my eyebrows really dry, sticky or rock hard. It does not move …

I would consider marrying it. Stole this from my mother when I had a reaction to a topical acne gel (acnatac) and it fixed the itchy, red and bumpy mess in a matter of days.
It smells great and did not break me out (and I used it on the particular area where I usually get acne from pretty much just breathing). Feels so soothing too. Works great as a cuticle treatment, on elbows and well …

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

Love this. This was just the product I needed. My skin has gotten increasingly dry over the last few weeks since it is now sort-of autumn where I live. My HA from the ordinary had run out and although I liked it a lot, it never helped fix how dry my skin gets over the course of the day. This however does just that. It’s great under makeup, has a nice consistency and feels fresh considering it …Read more

Self Tanners - Unlisted Brand - Isle of Paradise - Self Tanning Water

4.0

Ok, so everyone saying this does not smell like fake tan? It does, just not when you first apply it. Once it develops, it smells just as bad as any other fake tan.
However, it develops quite fast, does not transfer onto clothing, dries quickly (if you don’t over-apply). The best part is that it lasts forever, which is about one and a half to two weeks in fake tan time. The worst part is that …
