(Preliminary review). Dry, sensitive Rosacean skin. N(C)10. I'm testing the lightest shade, 010 Aglow. Shade description: for very fair skin with neutral undertones. First impression of shade match: I've never had such a great match in a foundation! About the same depth and tone as Nars Sheer Glow #Siberia but slightly less yellow. And compared to Nars Radiant Tinted Moisturizer #Terre …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Hydrating Face Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I'm 49 with dry, sensitive Rosacean skin so I need facial products without irritating ingredients like fragrance. This primer is fragrance-free (though it does smell a tad "oily") and contains Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil which is very moisturizing and soothing (it's one of the few plant oils my finicky skin loves). It also contains minimal amounts of Vitamin A, C and E …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Light Makeup Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2018

I have very finicky pale, dry, sensitive Rosacean skin which I managed to get under control and I have established a good, gentle skincare routine over the past 10 years. In general I'll stick to what works; I'm very reluctant trying new products but I couldn't resist trying the new Clinique 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Light Makeup Remover. I like it very much! My skin …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Retin A Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2018

After having used Avene Eluage Cream (Retinaldehyde) for 8 years I decided to move on and I asked my GP a prescription for Tretinoin Cream 0.02%. Just for anti-aging. I have dry, sensitive Rosacean skin and I can't tolerate many actives so I knew there was a possibility my skin would not like Retin-A. However, knowing it's the best anti-aging treatment out there, I just wanted to try …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Shalimar Souffle de Parfum - Intense

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2018

I have a weak spot for Oriental Florals and Oriental Vanillas (one of my favourite perfumes is Dior Addict) and I've always liked Guerlain Shalimar but I didn't really care for Shalimar Souffle; too boring, weak and generic. So when Shalimar Souffle Intense EdP was released I didn't expect much but of course I had to get a sample. Much to my surprise I fell in love with it …Read more

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/09/2016

I have dry, sensitive Rosacean skin and my favourite makeup remover of all time is Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. But it comes in a large tub so not conventient for travelling or doing touch-ups. Transferring some into a small jar is messy so I was really curious when I heard about this stick. TTDO Balm but in a convenient little stick? Yes, must buy and try! I love it. It works and …Read more

Bronzers - Paula's Choice - SunKissed Custom Color Bronzer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2014

I never was that much into bronzers but being extremely pale (I'm a neutral- to slightly yellow toned N10) and not being able to tan I really wanted to find a nice bronzer providing that healthy, natural looking sunkissed complexion. I tried lots of other bronzers by Guerlain, BB, MAC, Benefit etcetera but they were all either too shimmery, dark, muddy or orange looking. I also have very …Read more

Moisturizers - Embryolisse - Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2013

I have very sensitive, dry Rosacean skin. In my life I tried tons of different simple & gentle moisturizers but Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentree so far works best for me. Right now I'm on my seventh or eight tube.
At first I didn't want to try it because it's (mildly) fragranced and I try to avoid fragranced products as much as possible but a friend of mine pursuaded me …
