Treatments (Eye) - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour

4.0

Mar/24/2018

If your eyes are extremely sensitive to almost all eye creams in the market, then this would work for you. I tried from the most expensive to the cheapest brands of eye creams, but within seconds of applying them they immediately irritate my eyes and make them sore.

This however does not irritate. It does moisturize though, but not enough. Wish the texture was a bit thicker as it is …

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional: Matte Rescue

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2017

Broke out like crazy.
If you're not prone to acne, this would definitely help control your oil control for a few hours. I have an oily t-zone and it definitely helped the shine-ness. However, I haven't noticed any change in pore coverage though.

After two weeks of using it, I thought I was getting my regular hormonal acne on the areas that I have used this primer on …

Masks - Kiehl's - Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque

Mar/14/2017

I've never been a great fan of Kiehl's products as most ones I tried in the past fail to work. Thus, I kept my distance from the brand for a few years. I wasn't sure about purchasing this mask - didn't believe that it would really 'invigorate' and 'brighten' my skin's dull appearance, but many were raving about it so I thought why not try …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Skin Tint

Mar/14/2017

Do you know how it's like when you use new products and fear sometimes they leave you with temporary tiny, minute skin-coloured bumps under the skin? I thought I would be ready for these (if) they appeared on my skin after using it. The tint left me with even worse than these.

When I first read that it contained denatured alcohol, I was very hesitant to purchase it as this …

Styling Products - Oribe - Supershine Moisturizing Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2017

If this was a face moisturising cream, I would describe it as a cream that gets absorbed fast with a matte, yet silky finish look. I noticed this product always gets sold out at an ever-increasing rate.

I have tried hundreds of hair conditioners/masks/oils but they all seem to leave a temporary effect. I even tried Oribe's signature mask, which its effect was short as well. This …

Skin: oily, uneven skintone
Use it for: no makeup makeup

I have been using it for roughly 3 years, and I have it in 3 different shades.
It is easy to blend it with your hands and I found it to be very spreadable. The best application I would recommend though is to use a beauty blender. My friends and even once a dermatologist, swore thinking that I wasn't wearing any …

Skincare - Face - SkinCeuticals - SkinCeuticals Eye Balm

1.0

Jun/04/2016

It is difficult to find a real, plain moisturizer for the eye area, as dermatologists always recommend to not apply face products/face moisturizers around the eyes since they can cause milia.

The area around my eyes is not sensitive. Once I applied this eye balm, it continuously tingled and made the area sore. I'm not sure what ingredient in this balm caused this, but I know I …

Moisturisers are supposed to calm down any red, dry or sore skin. For some reason this gives me a tingling sensation whenever I apply it. I wondered if this was a treatment or just a plain moisturiser as it states.
-It does moisturise, however not so much.

Sunscreen - Jan Marini Skin Research - physical protectant spf 45

Jun/01/2016

I've finally found an SPF that suits my skin type. My skin type is oily and prone to acne. Whenever I apply sunscreen, my face resembles a pan of rapeseed oil. This sunscreen however fixes this problem.

I've been using it for 6 months now. It is known as a moisturiser and sunscreen altogether. At first it looks greasy when applied, a few minutes later you end up with a …

Lip Treatments - La Mer - The Lip Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2016

This is basically a light version of vaseline/aquaphor that's mixed with other appalling ingredients. It smells like a fruity bubble gum with a strong mint flavour. It doesn't seem like it's derived from natural mint leaves, just artificial candy and sugary ones.
More so, it hardly moisturises. Yuck.
