My favorite cleanser. I do a double cleanse (oil first, then a hydrating one to follow). I have sensitive skin, and some oil cleansers i've tried contain rosemary oil extract, which irritates my skin and causes redness/itchiness, those being: DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil with Coconut and Argan Oils, Neutrogena Ultra-light Cleansing Oil. The Face Shop Rice Water …Read more

Not a good foundation for very dry, flaky, mature skin. I'd been wanting to try it forever, and when i finally did, i was sadly disappointed. Firstly, i'm surprised they claim it's "undetectable" because it definitely looked like foundation sitting on my skin. Second, they say it has a radiant finish, but on me it was satin, almost matte actually. Finally, they say it is …Read more

Definitely not a good foundation if you have very dry, flaky, mature skin. This exacerbated all my texture, pores and fine lines. I'm surprised they say it's medium coverage, as all my sun spots were clearly visible with one coat. I would say it's light coverage, buildable to medium. It also made my skin feel dry and dehydrated. It definitely has a matte finish. Overall, it just …Read more

I didn't want to love this because of the price, but ...I love it. I recently bleached my hair and it's very dry, coarse and damaged (my natural hair is normally dry and coarse anyway), and my old standby and go to frizz fighter/shine enhancer Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum just wasn't making a difference anymore (used it and loved it for over a decade). Bleaching took all the shine …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Suntegrity 5 In 1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen - Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF 30

May/26/2018

Not sure why this sunscreen gets raves. It does have good ingredients (non-nano 20% zinc oxide, iron oxides, antioxidants) and is slightly moisturizing. I have very dry skin and normally like products that are dewy and moisturizing, but this was just plain greasy on my face. It's also pretty thick, and thus looked horrible under foundation and made it pill up. I suppose you could wear it on …Read more

Not really a fan of this "tinted moisturizer". In my opinion, tinted moisturizer is a misnomer for this as it's thick, pasty and definitely looks like you have foundation on, not natural at all, and just sits on the skin. I see this recommended for dry skin quite often, which i have (dry and mature), but it made my texture issues and dry skin look worse. On the plus side, it did …Read more

This is such a beautiful foundation. It's perfect if you have dry, mature, flaky skin. It slightly blurs pores, and amazingly it doesn't cling to my retin-a induced dry, flaky patches i have mostly on my lower face (every foundation i've ever tried does that to some degree, some worse than others). It also doesn't exacerbate any of my texture issues (mostly around my mouth …Read more

Not a horrible foundation, but not great either. It's heavy and thick, has good medium coverage with one coat. Supposed to be good for dry skin, but i found that it clung to my dry patches almost immediately after application, both with primer and without. I also tested it using both fingers and a beauty blender, and it still exacerbated my dry skin patches. It has pretty good staying power …Read more

Blush - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Blush Color - Luminous Flush

Feb/08/2018

Beautiful blush, a combination of a blush and highlight, and gives the skin a nice flushed, post-workout look, not garish or overdone. It does look kinda scary in the pan, very pink, but it's actually not super-pigmented and can be built up. The color is a light pink with just a tinge of coral, supposedly with a slight golden shimmer (but on me, i don't see the golden). It gives that …Read more

Not a bad foundation. It has no spf, fragrance, or parabens, and is oil free and hypoallergenic (although it does contain talc, which some people have issues with). It's medium coverage with a matte finish. I have sensitive, mature, and very dry skin, and am around NC15 with neutral undertones, and the color Classic Ivory was the closest color match albeit slightly too light (next up color …Read more
