Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

This serum is fantastic . I have very thick Indian hair and most serums really don’t do much for my hair, other than heat protection. This serum left my hair gorgeously shiny after blow drying. I also tried it on my hair while air drying and it still imparted this gorgeous shine that I had never seen before, even with my kenra and biosilk serums. This is a definite HG product and I will …Read more

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

This is the best hair product I have bought, EVER. It gives amazing results and makes my wavy frizzy hair look like it was blown out at the salon. It doesn’t take long either. I spray with Kenra blow dry spray or Paul Mitchell smoothing serum. I section my hair and blow dry from there. I use it when my hair is damp, not straight out of the shower. Highly recommend! I actually prefer the look of …Read more

Skincare - Face - SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton

This is a great facial cotton, but not quite what I need. The pads are so soft and can’t compare to anything else on the market. However, and this is a big con for me- I need to use so many cottons to remove my makeup/sunscreen with micellar water. I prefer large oval drugstore pads that I get at target because I only have to use two of those. For these shiseido pads I use at least 5. I also feel …Read more

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Brightening & Clarifying Tightening Pores Mask - Apple

This is a great inexpensive sheet mask. I do like it for hydration. I do feel like it calms redness and blemishes. I don’t notice a pore minimizing effect. I also do not like the fragrance. But you really can’t beat the price. That being said, I would not repurchase solely because I prefer the black pearl mask.

How I use: I put on a layer of klairs toner, followed by snail essence. Then …

Moisturizers - Olay - Complete UV 365 Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30 - Sensitive Skin & Oil-Free

Aug/15/2018

I liked this sunscreen initially, before trying Japanese sunscreens. Looking back now, I hated it. It was so thick, hard to rub in, and left a thick white cast. It left my face really oily as well. I didn’t find it to really hydrate my skin in the way it needed. At the time, I liked it because it wAs moisturizer and mineral spf in one, which is hard to find in a drugstore facial sunscreen. I’m …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Aug/08/2018

This was a decent foundation. Would not recommend for oily skin. Not very good lasting power - I work long days and it would break out and separate in certain areas. I like the spf. Also would like to note that the shades seem a little lighter compared to the regular double wear shades. It was hard to figure out how to apply this - I finally figured that it was best applied with a stippling …Read more

Great foot cream. My feet are hard to moisturize and this lotion works so well. I slather it on (use a really generous thick coating) and put on socks. I also really enjoy the scent. Feet will be nice and soft the next day.

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

Jul/02/2018

Hm. I feel like I’m in the minority when I say that this sponge did not work as well as the original beauty blender for me. I felt like this sponge got too soft and squishy when wet, as opposed to the beauty blender that is a little more firm when wet. I noticed that the real techniques sponge didn’t do as good a job for more mattifying, full coverage foundations like my Estée Lauder double wear …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup Foundation

May/21/2018

I was so torn about this product. I used it for a good 3 months while I was having terrible breakouts. The good news is that it really did not cause any breakouts. However, I didn’t think it really treated any pimples either. I also had a lot of trouble finding a good shade for me, which is my problem with a lot of the clinique foundations for me. They tend to lean pink, and the few yellow toned …Read more

Color is gorgeous and I have the feeling it would look good on most people. However, it is just so drying. Even though I put a lip balm on under neath, it can still be very drying and my lips look so dry by the end of the night. I do love Mac lipsticks though, and it has lasted me 2+ years.
