Skincare - Face - Dr. Bronner's - Dr.Bronners Tea Tree Soap

Okay, so this was a mistake. I had been using the peppermint variety of dr bronners. It makes my face so squeaky clean and I love peppermint. However, a lot of people warn peppermint is a potential irritant, so when I ran out and peppermint it was sold out- I took the chance to try a new scent.

Enter the tea trea dr bronners. It's definitely not as strong feeling as the peppermint …

Moisturizers - Formula 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Moisturizer

5.0

Holy Grail!!! I wish I tried this sooner. I thought about it many times but the reviews scared me off. I see a lot of the mixed reviews are a couple of years old, so perhaps the formula has changed.

I have pretty oily skin and I needed something to help with mattifying my skin. I can't believe this actually works!!

Pros-
- cheap and the packaging is nice.
- I …

Gels/ Soaps - Dr. Bronner's - Hemp Peppermint Castille Soap

I've been using this again. Backstory- I used this over 6 months ago with some other products recommended by YouTubers skincare routines. I really wanted to clear my acne. Involved was oil cleansing with coconut oil, using this cleanser with or without a spin brush, witch hazel toner and Aloe Vera moisturizer.

This worked well but I swore off it a while because while using that …

Another hit from the ordinary in my books. I love this.

Pros-
-lasts forever. One small drop does both eyes.
-it does wake up my eyes and help with eye bags and puffiness.
- I have not found it drying. I think of this as an eye active and not really a cream so I've always used moisturizer over top.
-unexpensive
-non-irritating
-feels very nice with my …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

5.0

I love this. This is definitely a holy grail in my skincare routine. I do feel like my skin had to get used to this. It didn't cause any breakouts but my skin did have a mild stinging reaction the first week I applied this. Now it only stings open sores.

Pros-
- love the dropper, hygenic and very easy to dispense.
- texture is interesting but easy to work with.
- no …

This is one of a few ordinary products I started using about 2 months ago. I also bought their niacinamide, caffeine eye serum, HA moisturizing cream and a retinoid (but I havent dipped into that yet).

I decided to go with this vitamin c cream from their line because of two main factors- low irritation and it was compatible with their niacinamide which most vitamin c serums are not. Of …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

This is approaching holy grail territory for me.. first off, I walk to work and I live in Canada. So I need a foundation that can take a freaking beating from the elements. I also need something that can wear all work day, put up with my combo skin, has decent coverage and preferably not have to blot... So a bit of a tall order I guess.

This foundation has met all of my expectations …

Holy grail. I just wish it was less expensive.

I've been using this for a month or so and I have noticed such a difference. This has made the biggest difference to my skin... I don't know if it's this specific formula or just the glycolic acid but my skin is so smooth... It's almost completely clear for the first time since I was a teenager..

The only …

-has never pilled on me, even under makeup

Cons-
- it makes my face feel greasy but not really look greasy. Kind …

Treatments (Face) - Derma E - Very Clear® Acne Spot Treatment

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

This is a decent spot gel. It does work, but i can really only use this one at night because it leaves a thin film that eventually peels off. I have tried applying a very small amount and still the same thing.

I dont find it is more effective than other spot treatments. Everyone is different so maybe that's just me, but that on top of the peeling is why I wont repurchase. I find …
