Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Foreo LUNA fofo Smart Facial Cleansing Brush

I fear this gadget is a waste of money and time when compared to the plain model without the sensors.
I’ve been using it for 3 weeks and the reading is always the same. I think it is a silly gimmick. As a long-time Clarisonic user, I may be biased but I don’t think the Luna gets to the skin around my nose as easily which is one of my blackhead-prone areas.
There will always be another …

Toners - DHC - DHC Soothing Lotion

This review is for the product purchased from Costco.com in a set with the Rich Moisture Lotion for $30. I sometimes wonder if the manufacturers tweak the formulation when selling to their discount customers...
This toner is very gentle on my very sensitive skin. I also appreciate the silicone free status as I breakout from these ubiquitous ingredients, especially those marketed to those …

Nails - Essie - Gel Couture Sheer Silhouette Nail Polish - Last Nightie

5.0

30 days ago

Great color for a professional, a pink-tinged taupe with the barest hint of sparkle. I think it would work on many skin tones, but mine is a light olive that I have found hard to complement with pale pink/taupe/ecru shades I like for work.
Unlike some other Essie gel polishes in similar colors, this one covers in two coats without streaks.
Short on time, I wore it without the matching …

BB Cream - Burt's Bees - BB Cream - Medium

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Although Burt’s Bees is now owned by a soulless conglomerate, I appreciate that their products are less likely to contain ingredients avoid, e.g., silicones.
This one is a total loser, but it was an impulse purchase made to use my CVS extra bucks. The color reads ashy with a flat, unattractive finish that highlights my flakey patches.
Others have mentioned the off-putting scent which is …

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50

Good for oily skin. It applies evenly although it it very runny and the pump applicator squirts out too much product.
It dries down very quickly and wears well. The Natural Tan medium/dark is much darker than expected.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30 in Silicone

OMG, my patch test area is so painful. Thankfully I patch test products before I introduce them to my face. First, the innocuous-looking cream started to burn (not tingle or sting) I washed it off immediately but it felt difficult to remove and I didn’t want to scrub it off. Then the itching started!
Now I have been using C serum for years, starting with Skin Ceuticals and have been using …

Polishes - Essie - Gel Couture Nail Polish - Fairy Tailor

This is a neutral pink, very good for a work-appropriate manicure. That said, I found 2 coats was streaky and needed a third coat to look uniform.
Wear is a little better than average, but I don’t think it is worth the price given the cost is high especially if you are buying the topcoat too.

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Unstoppable Eyeliner - all shades

Jul/04/2018

I picked this up in Espresso (a very nice dark brown) from the half-price rack at my local Safeway. I don’t think it was worth $4. The eyeliner is just too soft to give a well-defined line. You must smudge it because it applies unevenly.
It wore poorly too- it didn’t last 6 hours, but I did not use primer or a fixing spray. Even with help from other products, I don’t think it lives up to the …

Skincare - Face - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Hydrating Water Essence

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/05/2018

I have sensitive, acne-prone skin.I purchased this because it does not contain silicone oils, e.g., dimethicone, that are in so many moisurizers. My skin gets clogged pores and pimples when I use products containing them.
So I ordered this online and it arrived only partially filled. Which makes me wonder if it was previously used. I patch tested this twice and had no problem, but when I put …

Treatments (Face) - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Niacinamide Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2018

I usually love the efficacy and value of MUAC products but this serum is underwhelming. I only use it once a day at night because my reading suggests not to apply with Vitamin C serum which is my morning active.
One of the best things about this serum is that it contains no silicone oils, e.g., dimethicone which are cheap, ubiquitous and cause acne for me. So that is good, but not enough for …
