I really really wanted to love this, but, sadly, it broke me out! I have very oily and acne prone skin. I am currently on Accutane which is why I was looking for a hydrating serum or oil that would not break me out. Even though this oil is hailed as non-comedogenic and ideal for acne prone skin, it still broke me out... Nothing major, just some annoying little pimples on my face, but enough to …Read more

I have oily, very acne prone skin and I am currently on Accutane. I was looking for a product that would hydrate my skin without breaking me out. I've wanted to try out some of The Ordinary products for a while now which is why I bought their Squalane Oil and Hyaluronic Acid on Black Friday. It's a bit tacky, but you only really need two drops for your whole face. If you wait a minute …Read more

I have acne-prone skin and a very oily T-zone, the rest of my face is normal. Acne has been my major skin issue since forever. I bought this mask online after discovering Lush's mask of magnaminty. I love that mask, but it's quite expensive so I started looking for a more affordable one, then I came across Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. It's more expensive in Europe than in the …Read more

This is a review of the Foreo Luna 2 for combination skin (blue colour)

I absolutely LOVE this cleansing device. I bought it because I was at my wits' end, my face was constantly breaking out, even though I have an extensive skin care routine and I use good quality skin care products. I have had two rounds of accutane, after the second one my acne wasn't gone and my …

*this review is for the self-preserving version of this face mask*

This is hands down the best face mask I have ever tried! I have been struggling with acne for years (even after two sessions of Accutane/isothretinoin) and I honestly wish I had discovered this mask sooner. I love the concept behind Lush, but unfortunately I have extremely acne prone skin, which is why I avoid all …

I've repurchased this product twice. Love it. It helps my foundation stay put all day and controls my oily T-zone. I actually have no need for blotting powder when I use this powder and a setting spray. Unbelievably cheap as well. Also, it does not break me out at all. I find that it applies best if you dab it onto your foundation with a fluffy brush, don't smear it if you know what I …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - VELVET VOLUME False Lash Effect Mascara

Jan/18/2017

If you want a good mascara that gives you that false lash effect or if you just want to try a Max Factor mascara: don't bother buying this one, just get the original Max Factor False Lash Effect instead. I got this one after I ran out of my False Lash Effect and honestly, the original is so much better. The formula of the Velvet Volume one takes much longer to dry out a bit. The formula is …Read more

I love this concealer. The lightest shade fits my skin colour, which is really rare because my skin is very fair. It conceals imperfections and zits very well and can be used as undereye concealer and for highlighting as well. It does not oxidise and stays put all day (though I use a setting powder and setting spray). Comparing this to Maybelline Fit Me, this Catrice concealer is a bit harder to …Read more

I don't get why this foundation has mixed reviews... I am currently using my second bottle and I really like this foundation. It does not oxidise or clog my pores. It is definitely not a full coverage foundation, but the advantage of that is that it is not cakey. I use a primer underneath it and also a setting powder and setting spray, with this routine this foundation lasts me all day and …Read more

Jun/09/2016

Unlike the Fit Me concealer, this one has a pinky/rosy undertone I'd say, so it's great for people that don't have yellow toned skin. However, there's one huge downside to this product which is why I won't recommend it or buy it again: you can't blend it out. It says 'Super Stay 24 Hour' and that's exactly what it does. This product Will. Not. Move. At …Read more
