Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2017

I was so excited to try this because I was certain that it would be the perfect micellar water for my sensitive skin due to all the rave reviews. It wasn't. I used it with a cotton pad to remove my makeup and act as my first cleanser during my evening routine. It worked fine to remove my makeup and my non-waterproof mascara. However, after a few days I noticed that my skin seemed a bit …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2017

I've tried a few dry shampoos and this is the best so far. It's so good that I don't think I'll try any others. My favorite scent is "bare." It's light, refreshing, and isn't overpowering and I don't find that it lingers. The only other scent I've tried is "original," which is nice too. Batiste absorbs oil very well without leaving …Read more

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - PiperWai

Apr/06/2017

I'm thrilled with this product. I tried making my own deodorant, but each version either gave me a rash or stained my clothes over time. I was looking for a good product for sensitive skin and found this at our local gluten-free/natural grocery store. It wasn't the cheapest option, but it wasn't the most expensive either. It lasts quite a while, so that makes it more cost …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Kenra - Platinum Dry Shampoo

Apr/06/2017

I'm new to the world of dry shampoos and have tried a few recently since I'm trying to keep my style fresh longer and wash my hair less. This was NOT one of the better ones that I tried. I was on a bit of a Kenra buying kick, so I picked up the travel size of this. I'm glad I didn't get a full size. The smell is nice enough. I have long, straight hair that can get really …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Total Control Drop Foundation

Jan/24/2017

I wanted to love this foundation and was eagerly anticipating its release. I have dehydrated, combo, ridiculously acne-prone and sensitive skin. The ingredient list looked really clean and minimal and I was thrilled that it didn't include chemical sunscreen, which my skin hates. I personally found it easy to apply with a brush and found the coverage to be adjustable and great. It lasted …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Kevyn Aucoin - Eyelash Curler

5.0

Jan/07/2017

I recently noticed that the pad on my trusty Revlon red curler was split in two. Having been down that road before and having no desire to accidentally snip off my eyelashes again, I quickly went on the hunt for a new eyelash curler. After doing minimal research and reading reviews, I picked up a Shiseido curler at Ulta. While it gave a great curl, it was too flat for my eye shape and …Read more

Concealers - Hard Candy - Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer

3.0

Aug/03/2016

I bought this to try to cover a tattoo that I foolishly got decades ago on my inner thigh, so this review is based solely on that purpose as I haven't used it as a concealer on my face.

I find the price point and shade range for this to be excellent. It's easy to find at my local Walmart or Walmart.com. I like how a pencil is included so I can carefully cover the outline …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Micro Brow Pencil

Jul/30/2016

Background: I'm finally (yes, at almost 40) learning how to properly groom, shape, and fill my eyebrows. I used to have them professionally waxed, but I can't do that anymore since starting tretinoin. I also have autoimmune issues, so my brows decide to spontaneously fall out every now and again and become very sparse, patchy, and virtually nonexistent on the outer ends. I wear very …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Garden of Wisdom - Natural Majik Green Tea HydraGel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2016

The Replenex serum was recommended on the skincare board and by a dermatologist who blogs about skincare issues including acne and rosacea. I tend to spend a lot on skincare, but I still have a hard time spending that much on a single product, especially when I can't get samples and don't know if my sensitive, acne-prone, rosacean skin will freak out. I saw Garden of Wisdom's …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Sephora Collection - SEPHORA PANTONE COLOR IQ

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2016

I visited Sephora for probably the second time yesterday. I find the store poorly lit and rather overwhelming. I'm admittedly not knowledgeable about makeup application techniques (although I'm trying to learn) and I find the perfectly made-up associates a bit intimidating, but I was looking for a specific product. While I was there, I asked about a natural looking, dewy foundation …Read more
