Moisturizers - CeraVe - Healing Ointment

I use this at night - after washing, I apply moisturizer to my damp face and then this over the under eye area and all the way up to my brows. It does a great job of keeping the Retin-A away from my very sensitive eye area. It also has the unexpected and *huge* bonus of making my under eye area much smoother. I have to say I’m really surprised at the difference! This is an extremely thick …Read more

I’m trying to avoid or minimize plastic packaging, so did some research and picked up a 3-pack of this in hopes it would replace my facial cleanser. To my surprise, I opened the box and found the soap encased in a plastic pouch. I opened the pouch and was met with a strong scent, which is weird as the liquid Cetaphil doesn’t seem to have fragrance. Its third and final strike - very drying.

A few months ago, my skin went off the rails and became incredibly sensitive. The only products I could put on my face for a month or two were Cetaphil and this product. It’s a reasonable and MUCH cheaper alternative to Dr. Jart’s Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. It’s on the lighter side - although I would have loved a more moisturizing cream, I was so happy to have this work for me when I needed it!

This was a pretty unremarkable product. It did the job adequately, but not quite enough moisturizing enough for me. After an hour or two, it was hard to tell that I’d applied anything.

UPDATE - initially loved this very thick and occlusive cream. I was using a new Retin-A formulation (compounded with niacinamide) that caused the apples of my cheeks to flake like nobody’s business. I went through several different creams, and this put an end to the flaking within a few days. I started using it on my entire face at night and it was going swimmingly, until I became very sensitive …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

This is good, good stuff. I bought W3 and probably should have bought W4, but it blended so well and adapted to my skin so well that kept it and used up the whole bottle. It’s light-to-medium coverage, and feels very light. I’m very conscious of excess packaging, and love that it comes in a glass bottle, without a pump or exterior box. Definitely rebuying!

The best things can say about this mascara is that it has great staying power and nice packaging. No matter what I did, it left my lashes a clumped, globby mess that no amount of post application combing and spoolie-ing could fix. This one is going in the trash.

I picked this up when I wasnt able to replace my usual Eucerin. This kept my skin moisturized, but absolutely did not live up to its mattifying claim. It's very thick, and turned my skin into a grease bomb. My nose constantly broke out, which it NEVER does. Time to go back to my beloved Eucerin Daily Protection.

Scrubs - Unlisted Brand - Napa Organics Plum & Walnut Gentle Exfoliant

Jan/10/2018

This is a great product. It's made with two ingredients - very finely ground California walnut shell powder and prune fruit. It's packaged in a glass bottle with a screw top, kind of like a small vitamin bottle. I tap out the amount I need into my hand, mix it up with cleanser, and go to town. It's a very gentle exfoliant - much gentler than other scrubs I've used, The …Read more
