Liquid - Hourglass Cosmetics - Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation

I would like to begin by stating: this foundation is diabolical.

I used it today for the first time, in the shade 'Buff', and whilst swatching it on my face it was already clinging to dry patches on my face, a general sign that this foundation is going to be a mess. I then applied it as recommended (1/2 pump for the entire face). The scent was pleasant; it smelled like …

I'd like to begin with my main negative with this foundation: it broke me out. Initially, with the first application and wear, it was going outstandingly well and it looked so beautiful on my skin; in fact, I actually got compliments on how my skin looked which is shocking to me because my skin is probably the largest disaster to exist in this universe. It gave me medium-coverage, as …Read more

Sunscreen - Drunk Elephant - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30

May/02/2018

I'd like to start off this review by stating that this is an outstanding sunscreen, considering it does not contain silicones. It's considerably rare to find a good silicone-free sunscreen nowadays, and this one ticks all the boxes I would want in a sunscreen, however I do have some problems with it.

The texture of this sunscreen is sticky upon application, which makes it go …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

Apr/29/2018

Individually, this is most likely the worst cleanser I have used in my entire life. Why? There's a few hefty problems which have lead me to the conclusion that this cleanser is diabolical. One of them being: breakout city. This broke me out in painful cysts on my chin, and on the right side of my face within my t-zone. My other reason: it has a 'warming' feeling which feels …Read more

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Dry Skin

5.0

Apr/07/2018

I am wholesomely obsessed with this pH-balanced and gentle 'foaming facial cleanser'! I use this in the morning and night as a singular-cleanse, and after use, my skin feels balanced, supple and most importantly, cleansed without the general tightness which accompanies within the use of many other cleansers. On the days I am wearing makeup, I would do a double cleanse, starting with an …Read more

Skincare - Face - Murad - Clarifying Mask

Feb/22/2018

I'm pretty baffled about this face mask... I've used it continuously over around 3 months and I really can't tell if it has done anything spectacular, or anything minimal if I'm being honest. The texture is pretty thick and requires slight effort to spread equally across my face; the 'scent' is pretty medicinal, but isn't off-putting / strong, and the …Read more

*This is truly one of the best foundations! It has all of the perfected elements for a fantastic foundation; it possesses a sublime satin-finish which never clings to dry patches - individually, and relative to others, I get a lot of dry patches due to using topical acne treatments so this is the most important factor for me. It has medium to full coverage which does cover a majority of the …Read more

*Oh my goodness! Me and my mother love these exfoliating pads more than any other, and we have tried a lot of exfoliating products in the past including the 'Paula's Choice 2% BHA' and the 'Alpha-H Liquid Gold' exfoliators, but this is my favourite so far - and is the least expensive!*

After a few nights of using this splendid product, I saw a drastic …

This is a beautiful moisturiser for my acne-prone skin. It is a lightweight version of the cream, which had unfortunately broke my skin out. But this works just as good, and doesn't seem to break me out!

Jan/06/2018

*I really wish I could love this! It was a perfect moisturiser for my skin; it moisturised deeply, reduced texture and reduced redness drastically. But unfortunately, it had been breaking me out quite terribly - I didn't want to believe it was this moisturiser, and I would put the blame on another product. But after cutting those products out, and using only this moisturiser for a week …Read more
