Scrubs - VENeffect - Micro-Exfoliant with Grapeseed Soy & Pomegranate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

The only reason this product did not get a 5 is because of its smell- it smells like crushed apricot kernels- slightly bitter and reminds me of the smell of marzipan which I really dislike.

I really enjoy this manual exfoliant more than the Goldfaden one because this product has similarly very fine particles but a nicer and more creamy texture which feels better on the skin. I also …

Moisturizers - Drunk Elephant - Protini Polypeptide Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

So interesting to read that many others had skin reactions and break outs to this product. This was my first Drunk Elephant product.

I personally really like this cream- its cooling, relatively unfragranced, it plumps and hydrates the skin and I swear I look quite radiant from the plumping effect.
The only thing is it leaves a very very slight film and takes a minute to absorb but …

Toners - Herbivore Botanicals - Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner

2.0

To be frank this smells really horrible unless you like the scent of decomposing flower petals that are rotting and wilting and dank. Did you ever crush a fragrant flower petal and rub it on your skin hoping it would smell like the flower- only to find a sour and gross smell? Well spray this toner at your peril to smell like a dank wilting rotting flower.
Even my husband said what is that …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Dept of Soul Pure Natural Lip Balm

5.0

6 months ago

After 2 decades of using Burts Bees Lip Balm it was time for a change, as I was sick of the minty tingle from Burts Bees and their new products did not hit the mark.

Dept of Soul is a New Zealand brand and what I like about this lip balm is:

1) hygienic twist tube with lid
2) lovely smooth texture that sits on the lips and prevents them from dehydrating
3) very …

Lip Treatments - VENeffect - Anti-Aging Lip Treatment

1.0
Created with Sketch.

This is like a white cream the texture of thick body lotion for lips that tastes slightly sweet. It does not absorb into your lips, it just gets licked off. Every time I use it my lips feel dry and I immediately reach for a lovely soothing lip balm that will coat my lips and protect them.
I do not recommend this product and I am using the rest of it up on my cuticles

Masks - Goldfaden MD - Skin Balancing Mask

1.0

***Delux sample- which gave me 4 mask sessions
I love a lot of Goldfaden MD products so this mask was very disappointing. It is meant to be for unbalanced aging skin - thats me - combination/open pores......

I did not notice any improvement after using this mask- texture/brightness/ skin receptivity to the next products.

If you are looking for a Goldfaden MD mask use …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - LEAHLANI SKINCARE Siren Brightening Serum

Disclaimer- I hated ALL face oils BEFORE this one!
This just brings back the joy and treat of pampering yourself at the end of a hard days work.

Oh wow, I've tried a LOT of face oils. The first one was from Clarins Lotus Oil about 28 years ago. I used Trilogy Rosehip well before the brand exported from New Zealand.

Most face oils I find leave a greasy film on my …

Lotions/ Creams - Kate Somerville - Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream

2.0

11 months ago

I LOVE other products in the Kate Somerville line but not this. I was very disappointed as I wanted to try this for a long time.

There are so many cheaper ranges for sensitive skin. I imagine that people who do not want to benefit from technology and progress would like this kind of basic 1980s/'natural' because its poorly absorbing and poorly hydrating cream …

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

3.0
Created with Sketch.

In a world where there are so many oils available this one is reasonably priced and absorbs into skin well.
HOWEVER it is dreadful in my asian hair making it oily looking- I could hardly wait to wash it out.
If you are thinking of buying this:

1) you must test it in person or get a sample. It is HIGHLY EXCESSIVELY fragranced- which you may not like and your skin may react to …

Treatments (Face) - Alpha-H - Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum

1.0

11 months ago

Ok I had to return this face product- something I have not done in 30 years! Most products I'll give away or endure but this was un-usable

Problems:
1) the pump dispenser is stiff and misbehaves- sometimes it works and other times it just gets stuck

2) the serum is a thick gel but NO MATTER how clean the skin is, when rubbing it in, it balls up and curdles! Little …
