Apr/20/2018

This is my HG concealer! I like this better than Tarte Shape Tape, Kat Von D Lock It and any of my favorite drug store options. A little goes a long way with this. I apply it to the under eyes and to redness/ blemishes. I then spread it with my finger a tad and finish blending with the damp RT sponge. Works like a dream! The finish is very natural and very high coverage...a perfect combination! …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

5.0

Apr/20/2018

Wow! I had been looking for a more full coverage, affordable, semi-matte foundation to work with my dry skin and this is a shockingly good answer to my problem. Aside from the packaging (spatula applicator) and the smell of it (which dissipates once it sets), this foundation has worked for my skin better than a lot of higher end foundations for sure. I apply it in dots around my face and blend …Read more

Ok, this product has completely changed my skin care game!! For all you dry skinned folk or folk who use accutane/ tretinoin, THIS is almost miraculous. My skin has never ever looked so plump and hydrated. This lotion contains 5 types (the original version has 4!) of Hyaluronic Acid, algae derived Sacran and Urea to deeply hydrate skin from the surface to the inner skin layers for significantly …Read more

This is quickly becoming my HG sunscreen...and just when I thought I'd never find it in the US! I love this. Super light and liquidy, great broad spectrum protection, dries satin matte and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I actually look forward to putting this on after my serums as it is the perfect finishing step for my morning skin care routine. I wish it wasn't so expensive …Read more

Jan/22/2018

First and foremost, I have super dry skin these days due to my beginning of tretinoin (Retin-A). No other cleanser does what this baby does for my skin! This is a super gentle, super hydrating, non moisture barrier stripping, soothing cleanser. It is packed full of great, skin loving ingredients such as moisture binding glycerin, nourishing ceramides and hydrating hyaluronic acid. This does not …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Jan/09/2018

Like the poster below me, I too have a bad reaction to the high levels of niacinamide in this product. It's simply too much for my skin to handle and it breaks me out in rash-like acne that is difficult to treat. I say definitely do a patch test with this stuff before applying it to your entire face. I love the Ordinary and other products of theirs are hg status for me! Too bad this …Read more

I have experienced an olaplex treatment and used this lil gem of a treatment during a home bleaching session. This does the trick at repairing damage during processing and leaving your hair in great shape! It's super cheap and IT WORKS! I don't know if it is BETTER than Olaplex but it definitely repairs hair in a similar way. For the price, I'd prefer this to the Olaplex any day of …Read more

Dec/14/2017

This concealer is a dream for me. It can be easily built up to full coverage without looking cakey. It can be used in my under eye area and on high points of my face to highlight. It can be used on my eye lids to cut the crease. I just love this product! Wet n' Wild has been killing it lately. This is a very opaque, semi-thick, creamy concealer that leaves a beautiful matte finish on the …Read more

Dec/14/2017

New HG mascara for me! I've used the Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara and this is absolutely a dupe for that but I believe this one to be better because it doesn't flake at all on me. I have this in Mystic Black and still don't quite know the difference between the shades, Blackest Black and Mystic Black but this mascara gives me the lashes I long for, super black, thick, long and …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane

Dec/14/2017

I've enjoyed The Ordinary's Advanced Retinoid 2% Emulsion for quite some time now. When I saw that they were coming out with this new Granactiv 5% Retinoid in Squalane, I was intrigued as I was hoping to up the strength of my nightly retinoid anyway. I have to say, I adore this formulation even more than the emulsion!! I have seen terrific results using this nightly for a few months and …Read more
