Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - Curl Junkie - Daily Fix Cleansing Conditioner

This is one hell of a good low-poo. After trying several ‘sulfate-free’ shampoo options, I was disappointed that they all contained several different surfactants, that while not being sulfates were still just as stripping. I was about to try Deva Curl when I stumbled on Curl Junkie Daily Fix and I love it.

To me it’s absolutely a low-poo- with enough water added, it makes a creamy foam …

Hair Styling Tools - Mason Pearson - Boar Bristle Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I had always heard about these but never purchased one because I hated the boar bristle brushes I got from CVS, Walmart, etc. That and the price is crazy.

Those drugstore brushes had such soft bristles, just glossing over the top layer and never reaching my scalp. I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to use a brush like that, what was the point? I don’t even have a lot of hair …

Lotions/ Creams - SkinCeuticals - Hydra Balm

This is a great Vaseline alternative. Great alternative to Cerave healing ointment, too. At least for me. The Cerave contains silicones, which I don’t like on my skin. Aside from that, the Cerave was very, very greasy and traveled everywhere. I find the Hydrabalm travels much less and somehow wears better, if a product like this can really wear well at all. And Hydrabalm offers some nice extras …Read more

Sunscreen - Sun Bum - Baby Bum Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

2 months ago

I've been, like many, on the hunt for a wearable, all-mineral, high zinc oxide sunscreen for my face. I use only this type of sunscreen on my face. I have tried a great many, from drugstore to dermatologist office. And while EltaMD and Super Goop have some awesome, very wearable formulas, they don't offer near enough zinc oxide to be effective against UVA1, as I understand it. Living in …Read more

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment

Ok, I love this stuff. 40 y/o, normal-to-dry skin, no acne or other issues. I’ve used oils to cleanse and moisturize my face for years. Bought this on a total whim.

What I Like: The texture! It’s a pristine white, milky liquid that even just looks like something I want to put on my skin. Applied to dry skin and patted around it penetrates like a dream with no residue left behind. I’m …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - La Coess REVITALISE Face Oil

4.0

3 months ago

This oil was sent to me in exchange for my honest review. I’m sure the other reviewers here were also sent a free product in exchange for their reviews. Which is fine, nothing wrong with that - provided that us reviewers disclose it up front.

It’s certified organic and cruelty free, which is great.

I’m a long time user of oils to moisturize my skin, and I will never stop …

Cleansers - LUSH - Ultra Bland Facial Cleanser

40/Sometimes dry & dehydrated/No acne or other issues

Lush products have mostly been a miss for me, but I LOVE Ultrabland. The versatility and the effectiveness have actually blown me away.

I already single cleanse with oil, so I'm familiar with the method. And as a cleanser, Ultrabland isn't my first choice. There's always a film left behind with single …

Fragrances - diptyque - Philosykos

3.0

7 months ago

Philosykos the infamous - those on a perfume journey eventually creep their way up to it, and the house. I'm going to go right out on a fragile limb here and start with the facts as I see them:

It's a linear, quiet, hyper-realistic fig fragrance. Until almost the dry down, it doesn't smell like a perfume, it smells like figs. Before you start the 'Oh, but …

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Daily Facial Broad Spectrum SPF 40

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2018

This is a decent sunscreen, (that uses both chemical and physical filters), for certain situations. I rated it 4 stars because of the easy to wear formula. If you’ve got the budget for it, and don’t mind having incomplete UV protection, it’s a great product.

CONS: It’s way expensive for 1.7 oz, $26+ depending where you get it. The pump bottle doesn’t let you ensure you get all of the …

Nov/09/2018

Unbelievable. This product is SO good. I'm 39, and while I like makeup, I've never been a regular wearer of foundation. Why? Because I could never find one that didn't look heavy, cakey, cling to every hair, dry patch. I could never find one that perfected MY skin instead of making it look like I was wearing a mask, I could never find one that I could figure out how to work with …Read more
