Lotions/ Creams - NUXE - Huile Prodigieuse (Multi-Purpose Dry Oil)

(I took one lippie off because here in Australia— its ridiculously expensive.)
I have normal to dry skin, showing the ravages of a decade undergoing chemotherapy. Chemo dries your skin and, in my case, almost burns it from the inside - so I have bright red inflamed cheeks for part of my treatment week. Because of this, I have to be oh so gentle with what I use on my face. I religiously …

Treatments (Face) - Mizon - Good Night White Sleeping Mask

Feb/20/2018

I have been on the Korean skin care wagon for YEARS. I read a review of this sleeping mask/pack on Reddit and bought it - not expecting much as Mizon isn’t a high end player in the Korean skin care market. However, the sheer amount of niacinimide in this cream is amazing for the price. It beats a lot of the higher end sleeping packs (Laneige etc) with the amount of skin goodness in each tube. …Read more

This is tiny and in a little jar and by all rights I should hate it. Instead it’s my new HG. I merely touch my finger to the pot and dot the tiniest amount all over my face. Then I buff it in and my skin looks incredible. It lasts through the sweatiest of Australian days and never ever looks like I’m wearing foundation. Where I need more coverage - I use it as a concealer and it doesn’t sink into …Read more

Gah. I hate the fact I love this. It’s in a tiny pot and costs the earth but... I use the tiniest, most minute amount and buff it all over my face and my face looks awesome. Does not sink into wrinkles, coverage can be built upon from sheer to full and it feels just lovely on my skin. Gah. I even purchased a backup, it’s that good.

I bought this in Miss Cupcake/Tomato. It’s my go to blush during the weekday scramble - a quick stripe and blend and I’m out the door.
The shades are complementary, with one shade typically darker and more pigmented than the other. Both shades go on cleanly and can be sheered out with fingertips or a stippling brush for a blended professional look. Build up the colour if you choose, it dries …

I have dry mature skin so this foundation is perfect. It hydrates beautifully and plumps up my lines. It’s very pigmented so go easy - pay attention to how much you use (less is more) and build gradually. If you take care, you will find your skin looks flawless and feels soft and plump. My new go-to medium to full coverage glamour foundation.

I adore this lipstick. I've got this lipstick bullet in four shades - Fawn, Muse, Mural and Icon. All of these are flattering on my aging, slightly sallow skin. I wish I had found them earlier and splurged as I could have replaced about 40 or so lippies in my eternal quest to find THE perfect Lipstick for my lifestyle and skin. The first three are variations on a nude lip, ranging from …Read more

This stuff is so thick and solid it feels like I'm spreading spackle on my face. It's just globby and greasy. I feel like a 50's housewife when I put it on - all I need are the pink curlers. Does it work? I'm not sure. I've been faithfully using it for a month and I don't see a difference. And geez, it smears all over my pjs and my pillow. Nope, not for me.

This is great stuff. Moisturises and sinks in quickly, leaving your skin feeling plump and soft. I took offf one lippie because it is a bit pricey for a drugstore brand but my gosh it delivers. Makes L'Oreal's range of creams for 'mature skin' feel like grout filler.
