Shampoo - Dove - NOURISHING RITUALS Fortifying Ritual Shampoo with Avocado & Calendula Extract

4.0

I've noticed that my scalp is no longer dry after using this shampoo for a while.

My hair looked healthier and less frizz.

The problem is that it is greasy and I have to wash twice most times. My hair also get oily easily.

Overall, it could have been a better product if they tone down the heaviness of the shampoo.

Scrubs - Paula's Choice - The Unscrub

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Paula's Choice haven't learned their lesson. They've been heavily critcized for producing products that Paula Begoun had initially critized well known companies for making.

They critized other companies for creating unnecessary eye creams, toners and one note products but they do all that. And now, in order to keep themselves relevant in the market, they have created a …

Skincare - Face - Paula's Choice - All Skincare

The company is now similar to a drugstore brand. It has lost its slightly elevated status.

I recently read on their website on their marketing page that they would always tell the truth even though it would made them unpopular. That couldn't be farther from the truth.

They're unpopular these days because:
*They manipulate reviews - unfavourable reviews …

Accessories - Unlisted Brand - Joovv Red Light Therapy

Nov/09/2018

Red light therapy in general is a well studied mode of therapy and Joovv has been promoting it aggressively.

Initially, I was happy with how they marketed their products and the information they've provided but the dishonest exclusions on non 5-star ratings made feel that this company isn't what I thought it would be.

They're using reviewers as marketing tool …

Skincare - Cetaphil - Daily Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid

Nov/09/2018

A very important part of my skincare routine.

This product contains urea which mildly exfoliates skin while providing hydration. It's a great substitute for people who have salicylate sensitivity and can't use salicylic acid or find alpha hydroxy acid to bee too harsh.

It has a very light consistency and spreads decently on the face. After application, skin feels …

A letdown from failed promises.

I bought this product because it promised to have light hydration and will never clog pores. In reality, my face would get so oily few hours after using it and I would wake up with clogged pores.

Paula's Choice marketed this product for acne prone skin and yet on their product page, it says that it's for all skin types. There can be …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - DEFENSE Antioxidant Pore Purifier

Nov/08/2018

I am so disappointment that people gave high ratings for a product that they will not repurchase or thought that it didn't work for them or that it was gimmicky.

We should be honest in giving ratings. It seems that these reviewers gave up their power to be slaves to companies for which they will not benefit from unless they're paid.

I will echo many of the negative …

A light and wonderful body cleanser with no harsh ingredients.

It spreads easily on the body and rinses clean. It gives ample moisture without being too greasy.

Skin feels soft and better after shower.

I love that it's unscented and made for sensitive skin.

Highly recommended.

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

A highly effective set of matrixyl peptides.

This product is light and feels great on the skin. I mix a few drops on my moisturizer and it feels even better.

I didn't experience any breakouts or unpleasant side effects.

Matrixyl 3000 is one of the most studied peptides out there.

For the money, it's worth the try.
