Masks - Deciem - The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I have just purchased this new product from the Ordinary and only used it once, but since I know that many people are interested in buying it, I though a quick first-impression review might help someone.

This mask's texture, color, and application remind me a lot of Shiseido Laboratories Evenese Dr Mask II - same kind of sticky, gloppy, black paste. Because of the stickiness, I …

Palettes - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I was debating if I needed this palette for the longest time before I finally purchased it a few months ago. I do not regret spending all that money to satisfy my curiosity and to see what the hype was about. I do use it several times a week on average and do think it's an interesting and beautiful (beautifully packaged too!) product. Does it transform my make-up look and do I think …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I have tried out majority of the Ordinary products and they usually are either hit or miss for me. Azelaic Acid Suspension is one of my favorite products from the brand (repurchased twice).

I do not have rosacea or much redness in my skin, but I do suffer from mild form of hyper-pigmentation. I have tried out really many different products tackling this issue (from different …

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is my favorite cleansing oil. I used to use cleansing balms (e.g. Clinique's Take the Day Off), which essentially are oils in a solid form, before I discovered the Body Shop's Camomile oil and I am never going back. This is so much easier and more convenient. I love the packaging, the pump works very well and dispenses an amount of product that is exactly what I need (I only use …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

It's a very good waterproof mascara: it's stays put, doesn't smudge even in a humid environment, lengthens my eyelashes, looks beautiful, but most importantly to me - it holds the curl. My lashes are naturally extremely straight and only some mascaras (mostly waterproof ones) can keep my lashes curled (I still must apply the mascara within 5 seconds after curling my lashes to keep …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLARINS - Beauty Flash Balm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I had heard so much about the "magic" of this product that I finally had to buy it. I'm glad I only bought a smaller (15ml) tube last summer. I still have not finished it and I probably won't because this thing does absolutely nothing to my skin. It is not long-lasting benefit balm, it is only supposed to provide a momentarily refreshment and skin tightening. However, it does …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary "Buffet"

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

While Buffet peptide serum is not my favorite product from the Ordinary and it's not an absolute must-have for me, I still really like it (currently using my second bottle).

It is slightly pricier than many other products from the Ordinary (still not expensive compared to other brands) because it is not just one or two active ingredients serum (as many others are). Buffet is a …

Palettes - The Body Shop - Face Contour Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I didn't expect much from this palette since I never heard anyone talking about it/recommending it, but I'm nicely surprised (especially given its price during the sales season). I think it will become my new perfect face palette for traveling. The packaging is heavy, but small and very sleek, with good quality mirror, very comparable to high-end/luxury brand packaging, in my …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I was so excited to finally buy this CC cream after hearing soooo many great reviews online. I have used it for four days in a row now, trying different application methods, with and without a primer, etc. Nothing makes it look amazing on my skin (what I was naively expecting).

I have combination skin, leaning towards being normal on most days. Normally, with most foundations, I have …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I am writing this review as I just finished the last drop of my Photo Focus foundation this morning and suddenly realized I cannot not have it! I very rarely ever finish an entire bottle of a liquid foundation, most of them expire and, sadly, have to go... This one was an exception. Definitely repurchasing it tomorrow.

It is a medium coverage foundation, buildable to full, in my …
