This has changed my hair life forever.
A bit about me: In Curly Girl language I'm a 2c/3a with coarse hair, high porosity, natural hair color with quite a lot of gray coming in, and no intentions of coloring my hair.
I've tried so many products, probably hundreds, for my very coarse and porous hair, which takes on the look of Hagrid's hairdo every time I've been …

Foundations - Dr. Hauschka - The New Foundation in the black tube

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2015

I've used the Translucent Makeup for a very long time and have liked it a lot. I can't understand why Dr. Hauschka has chosen to replace it with this. They could have kept both! This is a total disaster for my skin. Firstly, the lightest shade is too dark for me even in Summer. Secondly, this contains coconut oil which makes my face break out in large, painful cysts. Thirdly, the finish …Read more

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 1

Jul/28/2015

This has been a revolution for my skin. Sounds dramatic, yes. But it's truly made a difference in my skin's texture and clarity. I was never one for a fussy skincare routine and I've always preferred to keep products to a minimum. Cleansing cream (or bar soap in summer) plus moisturizer – that's it. Then I found a bottle of this, which I'd gotten in a GWP a while back. My …Read more

Mascara - Isadora - All Day Long Lash

May/19/2015

I have been a faithful user of Clinique's Lash Power mascara for years. I was content with its results – some extra length, not much volume, but great staying power and no smudging. Lately, however, I started to notice that even the tiniest tear would make it flake. So annoying to have specks of mascara all over my face, even after just a short walk in windy weather! So, it was time to find …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Jan/31/2015

I've been using this for a week now and I must say it's really growing on me. The old formula was just so-so for me, but this one seems to moisturize a whole lot better and my skin doesn't get flaky and tight towards evening, like it does with most other moisturizers. This sinks in well and leaves a dewy glow, perfect underneath my minerals! My skin has become plump and very soft …Read more

Foundations - CLARINS - Tient Multi-Regenerant Extra Firming Foundation

2.0

Dec/09/2013

I used to love this foundation, before the reformulation. I wore it for years, a lighter shade in winter and one shade darker for summer. People used to tell me I had peaches-and-cream skin when I wore it, and paired with Clarins' cream blush it was awesome. Then Clarins decided to change the formula and add sodium benzoate as preservative in this, which I'm allergic to. I bought a …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

I got a sample of this the other day in the shade B10. It's the lightest yellow-toned shade available. It's not bad, but I wouldn't spend my money on this foundation. First of all, it's VERY fragranced. You can smell it on your face all day long. The fragrance is very nice, but why on earth have fragrance in something you put on your face? It's probably to do with adding …Read more

Fragrances - Crabtree & Evelyn - Iris

Jul/29/2013

I wore Chanel no. 19 for years. Unfortunately it started to smell like a mix of cheap aftershave and dill when I quit eating meat, so I can't wear it anymore. I love iris in perfumes though and this summer I thought I'd get a summer fragrance, one that I'd use up and probably not buy again, no strings attached. I decided on Iris, which I got from Feelunique at an excellent price …Read more

Foundations - Unlisted Brand - IDUN Mineral Foundation

Jul/10/2013

I caved in and bought this mineral foundation in its second lightest shade, Saga. For reference, I'm a NC15-20, BE Golden Fair, Alima Warm 1, Tikei Warm 1 (sometimes Peach 1).
This mineral foundation doesn't contain bismuth, which is good. Coverage isn't as full as Bare Escentuals or Tikei, but it gives a lovely, satiny finish. My face looked airbrushed... for the first five …

Masks - Dr. Hauschka - Revitalizing Mask

Jul/03/2013

I was a little underwhelmed by this face mask. I expected miracles, I guess. It's not a bad product, not at all, but it didn't do much in terms of fading acne scars or evening out skintone. What it does do however is work great as a primer. I read on a Dr. H page that this can be used as a makeup primer, so I decided to try it the way they recommend it, which is underneath your …Read more
