Jan/03/2015

I had developed terribly dehydrated skin so much so that there were visible vertical dehydration lines on my face. If you looked close enough or long enough the surface of my skin looked like a desert. Makeup wasn't going on smoothly, my skin looked exhausted and dull. Also, I was even developing little bumps and breakouts of blackheads and whiteheads...likely because my skin was just not …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Careblend ] [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/30/2014

I'm on my second compact of this product so I feel I'm able to give an informed review. My first purchase was in the shade Light Plus and most recently Medium Dark to match my summer holiday skin tone.

The colours are a perfect match and in and case the powder itself blends so well that it's nearly imperceptible. The powder adds a semi-matte finish to complete any …

Feb/17/2014

Some background on my skin: I'm 33 years old and while my skin is free from blemishes and fine lines, I do have some issues with unevenness due to sun damage. My skin tends to get dull and lacklustre very easily so I have to exfoliate regularly.

What Caudalie promises we can expect: The Beauty Elixir "smooths away fine lines, tightens pores and gives the complexion an …

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Turnaround Revitalizing Serum [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/17/2014

Some background on me: I'm 33 years old and have combination skin that leans toward the dry side in winters and normal to oily in the summers. I don't get acne breakouts but I do have "lazy" skin that needs daily exfoliation just to look normal (I could never get by on the recommendation of once a week exfoliation - by skin would be dull and awful and just miserable …Read more

Feb/17/2014

Some background on me: I'm 33 years old and have some fine lines around my eyes (when I smile) as well as puffiness and bags (these only appeared in the past year or less) and I have dark circles (I was born with these).

I bought the Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex because first of all Estee Lauder is a well established and reputable brand and second because I …

My hair type: I have fine hair, but a lot of it. It's always dry and is easily prone to damage if I'm not taking good care of it. I have a natural wave to my hair.
What this product is: A very clean non-oily, non-shimmery leave-in detangling spray. almost like water with fragrance. If you have dry hair or even normal hair this product will have the same effect of spraying water …

Moisturizers - NUXE - Creme Prodigieuse Nuit

Mar/14/2013

This is a light textured cream - not greasy, not sticky. Like all Nuxe products I've tried there is no 'performance' behind this cream: it will not dramatically do or change anything on your face. But it will leave you with a well rested and plumped up appearance upon arising in the morning. And like every Nuxe product I've tried - the smell alone is enough to make me go …Read more

Cleansers - NUXE - Cleansing Milk with 3 Roses (Lait Demaquillant aux 3 Roses)

3.0

Mar/14/2013

This is a light cream cleanser. Not at all greasy and leaves no film or residue. This will very gently cleanse your skin but will not remove makeup at all - you must have pre-cleansed the makeup off first. Also, because it is such a light and gentle cream cleanser, those requiring additional cleansing will need to follow this with a toner and cotton pad regimen. In the winter months I love …Read more

Conditioner - Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Daily Treatment Conditioner

Feb/11/2013

I used the shampoo and conditioner together, so I'm going to review them both as "one" product - in other words the cumulative and over all effect of this duo:
The good: smells like apples.
The bad: It really weighs your hair down and not in a way that simplifies straightening - it felt as though my hair took longer than normal to dry and even when dry it was hard to run …
