Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

29 days ago

Be aware: it softens, but it doesn't hydrate, so if you are looking for a remedy for dry skin, this is not a product for you. Or me.

My 46-year old skin is transforming from being sensitive combination with a very oily T-zone (and somewhat dry cheeks) to turning more and more dry. It was with a heavy heart I realized I had stop using my beloved Clinique facial soap 2 (mild), which …

Powder - Unlisted Brand - Tikei Mineral Foundation

2 months ago

This product got everything: price, right amount of coverage, perfect packaging, a wide range of shades, quick delivery, non-oxidizing, no bismuth oxychloride - and long-lasting and buildable.

I bought my first jar over 1,5 years ago because I wanted a product with as few ingredients as possible, because my skin had gotten all sensitive and red (I used Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation …

I really wanted to like this product, given the money I had to pay (it is quite expensive) and that it claims that it is non-drying, but no, this mineral powder foundation does not work on me.

Why? Well, firstly, while it is correctly non-drying, it is so because of the very long list of ingredients, which probably why my skin actually got irritated and red by this product …

May/28/2018

EDIT: I have to give it another lippie, because this one is really, really good. I've used it since March 2018, and I would not replace it for anyting - maybe except the creamier version of the same product (labelled DRY SKIN) for winter nights. I use it every day together with a thin layer of EVY 30 SPF, and I have no complaints. At all. No red skin. No irritated skin. I just love …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Bobbi Brown - Face Blender Brush

This brush costs $54, and sheds bristles as a cat in springtime! Horrible. I have never encoutered such poor quality of a brush, not even $5 brushes from low-end stores. Each time I use it, 2-3 bristles end up in my face. Not acceptable for that price tag. So, no, I do not recommend this brush. At all.

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Sheer City Block SPF 25

Apr/17/2018

This is my go-to-SPF when, as says in the name, I am in the city and don't have to re-apply the sunscreen all the time. I have been using this for many years, and I choose this one because it is not a chemical spf, and my sensitive skin only tolerates mineralbased sunscreen. It is tinted, but very lightly, so don't expect it to cover up any blemishes or other beauty flaws …Read more

Apr/17/2018

It is supercheap for a reason. Bought "Girl talk", but when I opened the small box, the whole eyeshadow cake fell out on the floor. Glad I didn't pay a lot of money for this just to have it gone without getting a chance to try it. But beating myself up a bit for buying such a cheap thing and not expect this to happen.

No, I won't buy any products from Nyx again as …

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2016

I have used this cream for five months now and it is hands down the best moisturizers I have used (and I have tried a lot of them!). I was afraid that it would be too rich for my sometimes too oily skin, but it wasn't. However, I must stress that I use this only during winter-time (in Sweden), and not during warmer seasons.

This cream does not irritate my skin, it does not leave …

Apr/26/2015

How does this get so high ratings here?!! This makes my Korean wavy hair STRAIGHTER and limper... It does not enhance any waves. And it does not define any texture. I used 3-4 pumps, scrunched it in and let it air dry. Nothing. Except limp, straighter hair with tips that are flying everywhere. Noooo. I do not recommend this. I will go back to my label m. Soft Wax instead. It defines my waves …Read more

Jan/03/2015

This saved my skin after ruining it by using far more expensive creams that supposedly should soothe irritated skin (see my review on Clinique moisture surge extra thirst relief and Avenee Skin Recovery Cream Rich). When I bought this much cheaper moisturizer, my skin was bright pink, with burning patches and itchy.

I did not notice a difference immediately, but after a week, my skin …
