Cleansers - Bliss - Fabulous makeup melt gel-to-oil cleanser

1.0

Mar/07/2016

This cleanser did absolutely nothing in terms of removing makeup and cleaning my skin. The consistency of the gel is way too thick and sticky which makes it somewhat difficult to distribute the product over the face. The whole "gel to oil" cleansing process seems more like a gimmicky feature rather than an essential step when cleaning your face since cleansing oils follows the same …Read more

Moisturizers - ORIGINS - Dr Weil Plantidote Mega Mushroom Face Cream

My initial thought on this product was how moisturizing it is, so it's great for anyone with dry skin. This product claims to reduce redness, though I haven't noticed any major changes over the past few months. For the amount of money I paid for this I expected it to do more for my skin, and this is also mainly the reason to why I won't be repurchasing it.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Big Bounce in Impeccably Rich

Unlike many others (bloggers etc.), I actually ended up loving the Big Bounce Shadows. When applying the product I prefer to use a flat synthetic shader brush, pick up as little product as possible, and instead of sweeping it on I like to pat it on. This way the colour will be much more vibrant as oppose to sheer. However, this product will crease on its own as well as under regular eyeshadows …Read more

Scrubs - Peter Thomas Roth - Botanical Buffing Beads

I really wanted to love this product, and like many other have mentioned the beads feels very gentle and didn't scratch the skin on my face (unlike LUSH's Ocean Salt). However, it did make me break out, I got small bumps on my forehead and my cheeks. At first, I didn't suspect that it was the product that caused me to break out. I therefore used this product at least 5 more times …Read more

Styling Products - TIGI - S-Factor Heat Defender - Flat Iron Shine Spray

After reading the reviews here on MUA I decided to purchase this product in the hopes that it would do a better work than KMS Flat Out Hot Pressed Spray. It did indeed work much, much better than KMS's, and added both smoothness and shine to my hair after flattening it, no more frizziness! As long as you don't spray too much, it won't weigh down you hair. The smell is bearable and …Read more
