Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

I love this. Many years ago I tried the DDML and hated it, I'm not sure if it was the old formula or simply because I had different skin back in the day. But these new ingredients are the bomb. I like layering products, but if I absolutely had to pick one product I would use the DDML alone and still have moisturized, supple skin. This is the only moisturizer I take with me when I travel, it …Read more

Stick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

4.0

8 months ago

I'm not really into trying out new foundations anymore as I already have a few HGs that I keep repurchasing, but I got a sample of this and I must say that I'm impressed. The color match is perfect, it glides on nicely and leaves a satin finish without the dreaded "painted lady with caked on foundation" look. Coverage is medium to full. I do not use primer with this …Read more

Very expensive but, aside from the gorgeous color, it has a great formula that doesn't dry out my lips yet is longer lasting than average creamy lipsticks. The packaging is gorgeous as well. With my luck they'll discontinue it soon, I have 3 backups just in case.

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - One-Step Hair Dryer & Voluminizer

I have bra-strap length hair that's wavy and often frizzy and this brush is a godsend. At almost 50 years old I have yet to master the art of styling ones own hair with a separate brush and blowdryer. This brush is very easy to use and does not cost a fortune. I air dry or blowdry my hair first to about 75% dry, and then switch to this brush. Afterward I just use a drop of oil to further …Read more

Very surprised that this deodorant has no reviews yet!

I'm not a very smelly girl and I don't sweat a whole lot, but I can't go barepit unless I want to scare people away at the end of the day. Antiperspirants are a no-no for me since they dry out and irritate my skin. Commercial deodorants are not easy to find, out of desperation I tried some of the presumably unisex …

I got the sample size tube just to try it out and it looks like I'll be getting the full size container. There's not really much to say about the product besides the fact that it moisturizes very well, calms down my forever fussy skin, and does not cost a fortune. For my dryish combo face it's not enough on its own (perhaps in the summertime, when it's humid outside and I need …Read more

It works. I did not smell after 10 hours. It's easy to apply (doesn't drag on delicate pit skin) and the price is very reasonable for a natural product. I also like the minimalist packaging.

Unfortunately, of all the deodorants with baking soda that I tried this one gave me worst rash, it tooks weeks to clear up :( I used the unscented version so can't blame it on …

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Bonbon Eau de Parfum

I actually like this fragrance although it's far from sophisticated. My problem? It doesn't stay on my skin AT ALL. After 15 minutes it's like I never put it on. Thankfully I got the travel sized spray so at least I didn't spend a lot. I would repurchase if I could figure out how to prevent the scent from vanishing off my body, especially since I absolutely adore the full …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2018

I've tried Clinique, Banila Co, and Hiemish cleansing balms and liked them, but the Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is my absolutely favorite one of all. It melts makeup in a jiffy and rinses off well without drying my face. I have sensitive skin and yet strangely enough most fragrances in skincare don't irritate me, so the fact that this has a scent isn't an issue …Read more
