Sunscreen - MISSHA - All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF 45/PA+++

5.0

Nov/09/2018

Missha recently repackaged the essence sun so it’s in a sleek chic white tube now. But either way, my search for the perfect sunscreen is over. I found my HG in Missha essence sun SPF 45, it’s a light white cream that glides on smoothly, absorbs easily, isn’t oily or sticky, doesn’t pill under makeup, and has the most exquisite floral scent I wish was bottled into a perfume. Sadly, the scent is …Read more

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Senka Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

3.0

Nov/04/2018

Perfect whip creates a fun thick marshmallowy foam if, that's your thing. It's also very cost efficient since the tube lasts forever. A tiny pea size amount expands to a thick luxurious cloud. However, it was too drying for me so I'll be passing on this cleanser again.

Sunscreen - Hawaiian Tropic - SPF 30 Sheer Touch

Apr/09/2018

I picked this up intending to use it as a body sunscreen, however after reading others have used Sheer Touch on their face I tried it as a facial sunscreen too. After experimenting for four months here are my thoughts. Pros: spf 30, huge 8 oz bottle, moisturizing, no white cast, disappears instantly into skin, and doesn't clog pores. Now for the cons: It's very heavily on the …Read more

Cleansers - Avalon Organics - Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

Aug/06/2017

I threw it out without finishing which is huge for me since even if something doesn't work, I just use it up until it's finished. However, with Avalon vitamin c facial cleanser it was the culprit for closed comedones. I experimented and stopped using for 2 weeks. The cc's went away. I restarted the Avalon cleanser. It came back. I'm not sure what ingredient clogs pores but …Read more

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 8HR Pro Gloss

Mar/17/2017

My husband came home drunk, giggled and then happily presented me with the 8 hr infallible le gloss in 320 Red Fatale. I was not amused as for the lip gloss it's a bright tomato red shade, and is very sticky it sticks to my hair. It also stains your teeth in unattractive red streaks. Thankfully, it did not last 8 hours and faded away after eating lunch. I would not repurchase.

Skincare - Face - Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair - Protective Recovery Complex [DISCONTINUED/REFORMULATED]

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/24/2016

I was gifted two bottles of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and honestly don't see the hype. I have dehydrated skin and was hopeful ANR would improve my overall skin condition. I've used both bottles and here's my thoughts on ANR. There's not much of a scent and it feels a bit oily and tacky while applying it on skin but strangely enough does not moisturize (skin was still …Read more

Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Sunblock SPF 30

3.0

May/25/2016

I brought the green mineral fragrance-free version. I was looking for a decent sized mineral sunscreen and most mineral sunscreens were 2 ounces or less, which is awfully minuscule. Pros: hygienic squeeze tube, spf 30, generous 4 ounces, and no breakouts experienced while using this sunscreen. However, i'd recommend layering this under a foundation since I found it made me look like a clown …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Complete All Day Moisturizer w/ Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Normal

Feb/18/2015

I was looking for a moisturizer with spf for everyday use and was thrilled to find an inexpensive one by Olay. It's a great value for 6 oz when most regular moisturizers are 2 oz or less. So, this moisturizer comes in a hygienic squeeze bottle, doesn't aggravate acne, and it keeps my dry skin flakes away. The only con I can think of is the spf isn't stronger and the baby powder …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2015

I absolutely love St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control Scrub. I was previously using a gel based cleanser and kept suffering breakouts. Finally, figured out that the gel cleanser wasn't thoroughly cleansing my face well enough and getting all my makeup. So, the next time I was in Wal-mart I picked St. Ives for the 2% salicylic acid. The grains are super small, great at exfoliating, and has …Read more

I’ve had these annoying freckles since I was 7 and brought countless lightening creams to get rid of it. Nothing would work on it and they persisted in staring at me every day in the mirror. I originally brought the Uguisu Poo Uguisu No Fun Illuminating soap for it’s whitening claims. Verdict, it’s a mild, gentle soap and works great for brightening my sallow skin tone but did zilch for freckles …Read more
