Cleansers - A-Derma - Soap-Free Dermatological Bar with Oat Milk

Feb/26/2015

Like others have written it's fragrance free, mild and non drying. I use this to remove make up and sunscreen and it does a good job without stripping the skin or leaving a film. For reference my skin is very thin, fragile and reactive and tolerates very few efficient cleansers without itching or tightness. I've used this daily for a couple of years now and will repurchase again …Read more

Toners - LANEIGE - Power Essential Skin Refiner Sensitive

I use this morning and night on a soft cotton pad after washing and before skin care. It is very mild and feels just like water on my moderately sensitive skin. No perfume or alcohol to irritate.

After 9 months of use I can conclude that this product has reduced my TTOTM breakouts to one or zero zits instead of 5- 10 around my jaw. My skin looks more even toned, pores appear smaller …

Apr/15/2014

After ten plus years of use I can most highly recommend a Divacup and my reasons for this are the following:

1. For hygenic reasons.
Tampons are dangerous (google it if you didn't know) and pads smell so bad I could never get used to it. I even smell it on other women. Strongly.

2. Comfort.
The discomfort of pads is undeniable and a tampon can not be removed …

Feb/24/2014

Name: I guess this is named after my favourite film star of all times: "Rekha", who made an everlasting impact on anyone who ever saw her in the original 1981 Umrao Jaan movie.

Colour: Deep, true, undiluted, unmuted, no cloudiness, neutral red. It's so flattering on my pale, yellow skin tone with pinkish fingertips. It's the Red to end all Reds as far as I'm …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.19 Eau de Parfum

Feb/24/2014

This is for current formulation of EDP only.

Be warned: This is downright awful on the wrong skin. No question about it. Do test on skin before you purchase. Sniffing No19 on a strip or from the bottle repells me and tells me nothing about what's to come. Old lady perfume gone bad anyone? Those top notes are a wreck!

But I'm willing to suffer through this …

Lips - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine 89 Satisfaction

Feb/17/2014

A slightly golden shimmery, transparent beige that is too pale for me, makes dry lips look awful, have a too sticky feeling yet wears off very soon. No moisturising effect or other benefits.

Glad I didn't pay for this. The case is nice and heavy but this stick/gloss is of a quality I'd expect only from the cheapest make up brands. It's on par with e.g. NYX.

Feb/15/2014

This is not a colour I would ever pick up myself, it looked so purple/grey/mauve. But when I recieved it as gift I felt I had to at least be polite enough to swatch it on my hand. Hmmm- not too bad... Putting it on my lips it looked even better.

Not nearly as quirky as it looks in the tube. More of a slightly mauveish pink in the most wearable way I can imagine that colour …

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Quad Quadrille Spring 2014

Feb/15/2014

A quartet with my top 4 go-to-colours: 1) Shimmering slightly sparkly ivory highlighter, 2) a warm medium pink, 3) a neutral but complex lavender beige and 4) a matt brownish eggplant that's dark and pigmented enough to use as an eyeliner. The middle two in a very usable, silky soft, blendable, semi matte, slightly shimmering finish.
Application was excellent and staying power were …
