Masks - Biologique Recherche - Masque VIP 02

4.0

6 months ago

Reckless advertising and overzealous reviewers might trick you into believing a mask is a necessary, miracle, cure-all step to perfect skin. The truth? Masks are originally made to maintain the skin until the next facial and they're meant to be used 1-3 times a week. I don't get facials but long story short, this works for me. I get a boost of hydration that, in conjunction with my next …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

5.0

May/02/2018

I always have a few colors and backups of this product around. Brows are central and I feel comfortable spending the most amount of time on them since bad eyebrows can destroy the quality of a look. I don't know what to say. Everything has already been said. Except, please do not apply these on moisturized or wet or oily brows. They look best and most natural when applied to bone dry brows …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Raw Sugar Pineapple + Maqui Berry Body Butter

5.0

Apr/30/2018

I've spend a stupid amount of money on Laura Mercier body butter (I only use for scent), L'Occitaine (amande, which pilled & shea lotion which was mostly water and dries slowly and requires more than one application for adequate moisturization), Kat Burki which hurt to buy and smells weird, Nivea (which is cheap and great to use in the summer when I'm not as high maintenance …Read more

Lash Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Latisse Lash Growth Drops

Sep/18/2017

Please read this.

This is an incredibly effective treatment and WILL give you more lashes that are longer and thicker. But it can come at a price that is irreversible. Many, many women have noticed droopiness of the lids and orbital fat loss. The former can be fixed with surgery but the latter is pretty much impossible to fix since fat grafting and eye fillers are not used so close to …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - squalane + antioxidant cleansing oil

Apr/23/2017

I waited for the VIB sale to explore new brands and especially other cleansing oils. I have been using a cleansing oil for about 5 years to remove my makeup and as a first step in my cleansing routine. I was just running out of my Boscia one (so good, I am undeserving and will probably never stray) and decided to try this one. It seemed perfect. I was getting 6 ounces, it was relatively …Read more

Once you try Asian sunscreens, things like this just pale in comparison.

Pros:
-Smells amazing
-Gorgeous packaging
-Effective protection
-Dries without a heavy tacky feeling
-Could be good for dry skin. I have normal/dehydrated

Cons:
-Smells amazing. Why? A lot of fragrances are harmful for skin and can undo a lot of what good skincare tries …

Fragrances - Gucci - Eau de Parfum II

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

Why the high praises?

I have a good nose but no expertise. That doesn't change the fact that this perfume is a total bummer. It smells like a cheap hooker. Lots of vague berry that is lightly fermented and then a BANG of pure alcohol (not the consumable kind) Just bad bad bad. Like a very expensive, I-think-I'm-better-than-I-am Victoria's Secret fragrance only VS has …

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Jasmin Rouge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

When I visit leave the US to visit my parents' home country I am often treated to a lovely bedtime ritual of taking jasmine from the garden, crushing the flowers, and scattering them under the pillow. This is what my home country smells like: a mix of a linear jasmine that has a skin like quality and is deepened slightly by the heaviness of tuberose. It's elegant, sexy, and in a way …Read more

Here it is:

Coconut oil in a 1 oz dropper filled most of the way followed by about …

I just completed a sample and just had to share this little tip!

You know that red carpet glow celebrities have? That glow from far away looks totally natural and sun kissed? Healthy and sexy and bright? Yeah, that's a combination of meticulous health with a nutritionist and personal trainer, a good tan, and a body cream with shimmer. I can only afford one. Those lotions and oils …
