Apr/07/2013

I hoped this would be my HG Sunscreen, but no, this didn't work for me at all.
I really liked that it is fragrance and oxybenzone free, that is 2 things that I look for in my sunscreen that I use daily.
For my oily face this didn't go in to my skin, it just left a greasy sticky film on my face. The finish was also too shiny for my liking. Tried it on my neck and chest and the …

Feb/01/2013

I have the normal strenght, and this does miracles for my face. I hate my large pores, and my oily t-zone. My pores get superclogged fast, and my face react to a lot of products, if my face doesn't like it I will end up with big cystic acne on my face.
In the past I have used the 2%Bha liquid, but that did make my face feel greasy and sweatlooking. It can be becauce I use to much of …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment

Feb/01/2013

This is a fantastic product! I love this for my oily-acne prone skintype with large pores. For the most I use this once a week, but when I want to deepclean it I use it twice a week. I put it on and leave it over night, and after an hour my pores are smaller and my skin is smooth with a glow. It also may help with breakouts that I sometimes get, my face has had minimal acne, and that is a huge …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Paula's Choice - Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil-Control Primer

Dec/05/2012

I agree, this is not as matte and have the oilcontrol as smashbox antishine. This does not cover up/hide pores as great as the old clinique poreminimizer. BUT this does not clog up my poses or break me out as the two others.
The oilcontrol and shinecontrol is ok and it does make my pores look smaller. So for that I will call this HG.
To be honest, this did not work the first times when …

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Daily Mattifying Lotion with SPF 15 and Antioxidants [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/01/2012

I have so mixed feelings about this lotion. The texture is awsome for oily acne people, feels light/weightless onn the face. It goes on matte, but more satinmatte on my face, it does a great job of oil and shinecontrol ( with paula's shinestopper).
The not so good stuff is the low Spf. I put on my sunscreen early mornings, and I need it to work for 10-14h. A spf 15 goes maybe half of …

Sunscreen - SkinCeuticals - Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50

Sep/30/2012

I agree with all that say that this leaves a white film on the face, yes it does. But for me it isn't a big problem, my face is darker then rest of my body, so it just makes it look more even.
for the mattifying part it is only so-so... better than many but not the best.
But still I love this sunscreen, just because it works great with my oily-acne face. No breakouts or irritation …

Nov/25/2011

Like other I got this after watching Lisa Elderige on Youtube. This is one concealer that she uses on her self and on her clients and brides ( she says that it photografs well).
I got it at duty-free on my trip to Prague and the price wasn't to bad. In stores here that I live it is on the more expensive side...
I have oily and acne prone skin and this is one of few concealers that …

You can't buy this in Europe, but I found Isosmile.com and they ship to Finland (free shipping) and for a good price.
I didn't use it like it sad on the box, to use it for 14 days and have a hollywood smile, and after 3 uses you will see a whiter smile.
I saw a different after the first use, and after the 4th I was happy with the result so I stopped using it and only uses the …

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Pureness Oil Blotting Papers

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2011

I have stopped using powder and started using blotting paper instead. Of all brand I have tried so far this is the winner for my oily and acne prone skintype.
This does absorb more of the oils and shine on the face than any other blotting paper that I have tried so far. Also a huge plus is that gives a longwearing shine and oil control.
Yes they are expensive but they are my HG.

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Concealer

Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2011

I agree with people saying that it isn't worth the money. Just a basic concealer. I do think that it does a great job concealing stuff ( acne + undereye darkness...), and this is one of few concelers that dosn't make me break out in cystic acne. I does look quite natural on the skin, not heavy or caky looking and a litle goes a very long way.
The biggest problem that I have with …
