Cleansers - Ole Henriksen - African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser

5.0

Oct/24/2014

I've been using this for over 3 months, and I am pleased with this as a nighttime cleanser.

I have dry, acne-prone skin with permanent eczema patches under my eyes from years of using really drying soaps as a teen (the Neutrogena liquid one, I thought I had to 'dry out' my acne. Wish I could teach my younger self a lesson!). I only use this at night because I use a …

Treatments (Face) - Ole Henriksen - Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2014

I've been trying a lot of Ole Henriksen products lately, most good, and ended up with 3 sample packets of the Pure Truth Oil. With these packets, I extended use to 2 weeks' worth of daily use, and my review is based on that.

What I liked:
1.) This did give me an instant glow. The oil has an orange tint to it, and I'm light-olive skin tone, so it looked like a …

Treatments - Butter London - Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil

Apr/19/2014

I have a nasty habit of tearing/picking at my cuticles. Since getting a big-girl job in DC and shaking a lot of hands, I became self-conscious about the state of my fingers. I tried quite a few cuticle creams/oils, and this is what I landed on. It's about as perfect as I can imagine a cuticle treatment could be.

First, as everyone stated, the smell is fantastic. I carry this with …

Styling Products - Living Proof - Amp Instant Texture Volumizer

Jan/23/2014

I use the Restore line for shampoo/conditioner, but never thought to use LP's styling products. I just generally wash my hair at night (every 3-4 days), put in an oil treatment (like Kiehl's Oil-in-Cream or argan oil), then let it air dry over night.

For the past few weeks, I've been putting this in when I wake up with dry hair. I put a nickle-sized amount in my palms …

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Super Multi-Corrective Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2013

I've been using this for over a month now, and finally feel ready to judge it. I like it. I was definitely nervous to try it- I like a lot of Kiehl's products, but all of their moisturizers and creams have caused breakouts, clogged pores, or irritation, up until this point. With that kind of history, I thought for sure I'd be setting myself up another bad experience. Instead, I …Read more

Sunscreen - Kiehl's - Super Fluid UV Defense Spf 50+

4.0

Nov/20/2013

I've been using this for two years, and I love this stuff. I've worn it out in Baltimore at races for 8 hours straight, and only (easily) re-applied one time. (I don't think it was entirely necessary, as I wasn't sweating this stuff off, but for good measure). It's so light that it almost escapes my fingers every time I put it on.

In the past I've used La …

Moisturizers - Murad - Skin Perfecting Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

About 4 years ago I had a really bad breakout on vacation, and I used the Murad Acne line to fix my skin. After it was fixed, I moved on and tried about 500 things that didn't work.

Forward to last May, I decided to give this a shot. It worked beautifully. This first week my skin was a little sensitive to it (perhaps because I'm not used to retinoids during the day), but …

Skincare - Body - Mario Badescu - botanical firming lotion

Sep/09/2013

Ow.
I'm a MB fan girl. I love the Papaya Body Lotion, but as I have cellulite I thought I'd try this stuff out. (I'm not delusional- I know nothing will "cure" it, but I figured if it could have a temporary plumping effect, I'd be content).

First off, it burns. Didn't matter if I was freshly shaved or looking like Chewbacca, it still hurt. And …

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2013

I have dry, sensitive skin. I thought this cream would be perfect for me, but it really burned when on my skin (the fragrance didn't help...). It looked great, and I was excited to try it out, but I couldn't get through it. It also made my skin sweat really bad (in winter)- that was a weird feeling. I kept wiping sweat from my upper lip and forehead.

This may be good for …
