Moisturizers - Dr. Hauschka - Rose Day Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2018

This is my second-favorite facial moisturizer for the dry winter months (my favorite being Evan Healy's Whipped Shea Butter with Olive Leaf). It is extremely rich, so you have to be really careful not to apply too much. It is so thick that you have to pat it onto the skin; it doesn't rub in.

If you put on too much, your skin will look greasy, but if you put on just the right …

Cleansers - Dr. Hauschka - Cleansing Milk

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2018

This product gives me nasty pimples, really deep-down, painful pimples! I bought a full size and had to return it due to pimples (and I normally don't get pimples). I recently received a sample size of the product and decided to try it again (roughly a year or two after initial bad experience). Within a couple of days, I had huge pimples again!

This is my favorite facial cleanser; I've used it for maybe four years now. I really like taking time in the morning to press it into my skin; I spend a few minutes, adding more water if necessary. I do think that it helps exfoliation, because whenever I stray from this product and then go back to it, my skin sheds a bit for a few days. When I first started using it, I noticed that my skin …Read more

Powder - Jane Iredale - PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2018

Jane Iredale's pressed foundation is my go-to when I am in a hurry, since the application is very easy. I use the color Bisque. My skin is very fair with neutral to slightly warm undertones (I have some yellow in my skin but can also look ashen).

The foundation is buildable, so if you need more coverage, you will want to do a few thin layers, setting each layer with a setting …

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Couleur Caramel - Mascara

Dec/29/2017

I have a love-hate relationship with this mascara. I like that it is very natural, I love the brown color, and I like how easy it is to get off at night. What I don't like is that it smudges easily, and the volumizing formula (at least for the brown--I think it's called "pour cils longs") is SO clumpy, even on a brand-new tube. The nonvolumizing/lengthening formula (the one …Read more

Concealers - rms beauty - "Un" Cover-Up Foundation/Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2017

I got a sample of the "Un" Cover-Up at my local spa, and I am very impressed. The coverage is very opaque and does not settle horribly into the fine lines around my eyes. A little also goes a long way. I haven't had enough experience with it as a foundation to comment (I tried it once but overpowdered to set it, so it didn't look very good).

I have very pale skin …

Mascara - Pacifica - AQUARIAN GAZE Water-Resistant Long Lash Mineral Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2017

Very unhappy with this mascara. The formula is very thin, does not hold a curl (I have very straight lashes otherwise), and makes my lashes look spiky. The wand was very rough against my eyelid as I was applying the mascara, so much so that it actually hurt. The unusual wand also got mascara all over my lid--it almost looked as if I had applied smudgy pencil eyeliner beforehand. I am taking this …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/18/2017

I bought this in the lippie version (in a tube like ChapStick) since Sephora was out of the squeeze-tube version. I must say I was incredibly impressed. I had terribly chapped lips due to a reaction to a very harsh cleanser that I had been using, and the agave lip mask was the most powerful thing I found to help heal my lips. At first I was worried that the stuff in the lippie tube would be too …Read more

Styling Products - Jessicurl - Gelebration Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2017

My hair is baby fine, low porosity, and this product helps encourage the waves without weighing my fine hair down. I use only six sprays of it for my entire head. I spray it in my palms and then scrunch it into my hair. If I use more than six sprays, my hair gets overly soft, so I stick to smaller amounts.

I have recently tried mixing this with Jessicurl Confident Coils, and my hair …
