Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream

Been using Cervae Skin Renewing night cream, a moisturizer in a jar for years now and have been very happy with it. I saw this Kiehls product at TJ Maxx and snatched it up because it’s a more expensive product, it must be better right?

It’s not as moisturizing despite its name of ultra rich. It’s fragrance free or very light so that’s good. I wouldn’t say it’s a cream so I don’t see why …

I wouldn’t say this product is a necessity. I got it as part of a set of various skincare products to try. I used it mainly when I overexfoliated my face with too many topicals. I didn’t find it added any moisture to my face. I use it even after my face healed, I wouldn’t say it’s the end all be all. I like to use it on makeup free days mainly. The smell is lovely. I don’t think I’d buy it again …Read more

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter

I have oily combo acne prone skin that gets super dry in the winter now that I’m closer to 40 :).

It helps keep the flakes at bay without overloading my face with oil. This plays well under makeup. The texture is very light and whipped, not Crisco or greasy in the slightest! It was substantial without being heavy feeling. It was a great deal as I got a full jar of this with a full …

Sunscreen - Drunk Elephant - Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30

Jul/12/2018

Bought a set of deluxe samples of Drunk Elephants’ best sellers, this was included. I was excited for this product because of the physical sunscreens and it’s reputation for being non greasy, white casting etc.

I don’t feel the sunscreen lived up to its reputation. It is less greasy and less white casting then other physical sunscreen brands, but it still felt heavy and it still left a …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil - Black Velvet

Bought this because of the excellent reputation of UD 24/7 liners. This liner is not long lasting at all. Didn’t realize this was the “plush” version of the regular liners but according to their website it’s supposed to last as long as the original etc

I found that the liner went on smoothly and didn’t drag but it smudged and faded like a cheap cheap eyeliner. I have oily, almond …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

This lip balm has been in my arsenal for years. I use it as the balm underneath lipcolors as a moisturizing layer. It doesn’t warp the lipcolors (except this one Kat von D one, go figure), it also doesn’t slip and slide the lipcolors all over the place.

Love that it’s organic, it moisturizes and provides “grip” for other lip products.

Sunscreen - Supergoop! - Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45

Bought this product so I can reapply sunscreen protection over makeup. I’ve found it to be mattifying and works well not to discolor my foundation. I bought this in the medium color. I wear Golden Beige in Bare Minerals, Natural in Bobbi Brown to give you an idea of my foundation shade. I’ve also worn this without makeup underneath and find that this gives a fair amount of coverage.

I …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil - Nourishing Conditioner for Dull, Dry Hair

2.0

This conditioner is thick and luscious, and I expected it to moisturize and detangle my hair, but alas it does not. In the shower my hair will feel slick, but then once my hair dries it’s knotted and frizzy. Only redeeming quality is it smells really good.

I’m going to use it up and then not repurchase.

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo - Dry Hair

Jun/03/2018

I really needed something nourishing for my dry, knotty hair. This just did not deliver. I was expecting it to make my hair slick and smoothed out, but it made my hair more knotty, even when I used the corresponding conditioner. It wasn’t until I used the oil that comes with the line that my hair is detangled and smoothed a bit. I had better luck with this Garnier Smooth shampoo, it made my hair …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

This mascara is a good halfway point between wetness and dryness. It’s a little bit clumpy so I do need to comb my lashes or the brush before I use it. It doesn’t make my lashes super stiff which was a nice surprise.

The volume building is not as good as this other L’Oréal mascara I use too, Voluminous False Fiber. I layered these two together and got some nice results …
