Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

Jun/18/2018

I really love this stuff! I only use 3 drops 3 nights a week. I will NEVER stop using it. I feel like it improves basically everything (skin texture, tone, moisture, elasticity, even redness etc).

I have sensitive acne prone skin and have never had any problems with it except for maybe some slight stinging around my nose (and this seems to be only when I use it with certain products) …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%

I've been using this for a couple months. I think it's really improved my skin texture and it seems to combat discoloration, but I also started using the O's ALA treatment a couple weeks before this one (and I know for sure that one helps skin texture and overall appearance even more), so I can't say for sure how much improvement is due solely to the …Read more

Cleansers - Equate - Foaming Facial Cleanser

Jan/15/2018

This review is for Walmart's knock-off version of CeraVe's Foaming Facial Cleanser for normal to oily skin. Do NOT be fooled by the vaguely similar ingredients! Unlike the real stuff, this cleanser leaves a nasty residue (my face never felt clean the times i used it). It's pretty gross. It also irritates my skin and makes it slightly, but persistently red and inflamed for hours …Read more

During the last heat wave I bought a pump bottle of this at the walmart market for $7 so i could break out the shorts without my legs looking all lumpy and pasty. I swear, I actually DO have really nice legs (despite what it sounds like) but i can't stand how patchy and discolored they are so i always used to wear tights with shorts unless i happened to get a tan (which is like never). …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Fusion

I got the regular version (as opposed to the w/p version) in black for $8 at walgreens.

Anyways, I assumed that this would be a decent d/s mascara due to the fact that it's been around forever and seems popular. Not surprisingly, i was wrong... This stuff flaked on me right from the first use.

Maybe i just got an old one but I also just didn't like what it did …

May/25/2016

I use the Clearly Sheer for Faces 50 spf version. I like that this spf has an expiration date--i won't buy an spf if it doesn't have a clearly marked expiration date.

The 2 oz Face versions of this spf are only about $6 at my local Walmart Market, BUT FYI PEOPLE: the big bottle beach versions of this spf have the exact same ingredients, so you could get more for your $$$ by …

May/24/2016

I've been searching for a setting powder that doesn't irritate or breakout my skin so I picked this up at Target for $10 because I wanted to go talc-free this time, and this one seemed to have favorable reviews on here.

I was skeptical though, because this stuff only has one ingredient: silica (they have apparently cut out the parabens). I really wish I had followed my …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Turmeric Mask

May/12/2016

I'm of mixed ethnicity (hapa or asian/white) and have yellow toned skin that's always been hard to match. For years now, I've been mixing a tiny bit of organic turmeric with my liquid mineral foundation (Illuminare), which is a foundation that is notoriously thick and opaque, to make it better match my skin tone and i LOVE IT for that.

Whenever i use other foundations …

May/09/2016

I bought an 8 oz tub of this stuff off amazon for like $15 cause i had gift credit there. It's pretty cheap (i've read you can find it even cheaper in a store).

It gets 3 sticks from me because it provides a pretty good (and yes, surprisingly velvety) finish; it's mattifying without being drying and it doesn't look cakey or make my shallow acne scars stand out …

Apr/15/2016

It's like $6 at my local walmart market. I got the pink version because the blue version is for waterproof mu and has that weird separated oily look that Neutrogena's eye mu remover does (i wanted to use it for my whole face).

I'm giving it 4 sticks cause I like it for removing eye makeup. If you use a generous amount it basically dissolves it. I used it on my whole face …
