Powder - Maybelline New York - Matte Maker

This is the powder I use everyday to set my makeup. The particles are very fine and it helps blur any pores that are showing around my nose. It can mattify my face for up to 4 hours before I have to blot, and it doesn't settle into lines or crease. The only con is the colour selection; out of the four shades available, I had to go with Nude Beige and it is too light for me! If you put on a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Cetaphil - Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion For Dry Sensitive Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2016

This cream is as essential for my sensitive skin as oxygen is to humans! I've always tried "weaning" myself off Cetaphil but I always always come back to this because this is the only fool-proof option for my face. I lather on a generous splodge at night before bed, and about a pea dollop's worth in the morning before my makeup routine.
The price is unbeatable! It also …

Lip Liners - Max Factor - colour elixir

Shade: red blush
I like this lip liner! It applies very smoothly and does not smudge/bleed easily. The down side is that it isn't very pigmented, so it needs going over with multiple strokes.

Masks - Formula 10.0.6 - Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask

4.0

Apr/09/2016

I like this mud mask. I use it once a week and the invigorating orange scent is quite a pick-me-up on Friday nights when I'm tired. This mask doesn't draw out moisture from my face, nor does it provide any hydrating or softening effects, but I have noticed that the number of blackheads on my nose decrease everytime I use it. It does what it says, it cleans pores. For the price it is …Read more

Moisturizers - BIODERMA - Hydrabio Legere

Apr/09/2016

I bought this when Watsons had a 20% discount; I've always wanted to try this moisturizer but the normal selling price is crazy! I've had a recent outbreak of irritation on my cheeks and this cream hydrates without being slick; it's very light and absorbs very very quickly into the skin. I would not recommend this for nighttime or colder, drier seasons though, as the effects only …Read more

Toners - Neutrogena - Alcohol-Free Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2016

This is an okay toner. It doesn't contain alcohol, as the name very clearly reminds customers! It removes most of the residue on the skin after cleansing, and doesn't irritate my sensitive patches further. The price is great! However, the dispensing mouth is a bit weird and before you upturn the bottle, the toner starts to drip out the sides. Maybe the hole could be made slightly …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2016

I bought the hydro boost nourishing gel cream, which is the sensitive skin version sold at Watsons. It is slightly thicker than the water gel and more opaque. It does what it says, my skin feels more locked in with moisture. The cream leaves a dewy finish, so I wouldn't recommend using this during the day if you have oily skin like me. My sensitive patches on my cheeks have not experienced …Read more

BB Cream - La Roche-Posay - Uvidea XL BB Cream SPF 50

Apr/08/2016

I like the idea of a sunscreen + makeup base in one product, but this one didn't quite cut it for me. It applies alright in the morning on the centre of my face, but there is some flaking around my nose and on the sides of my cheeks. Throughout the day my face gets more and more oily, and I find with this BB cream I have to blot more than usual. I am using this in conjunction with the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - EFFACLAR Duo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2016

I am trying this product because I had a recent outbreak of blemishes on my cheeks. I apply this once in the morning and once at night before bed. It has managed to reduce the amount of discolouration and it also shrunk my existing pimple slightly. However, I would recommend using this sparingly because there is a stinging sensation when I first apply this to my face. It does dry my skin out but …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

Apr/04/2016

I'm not normally a big fan of skipping daily hair washes, as my waist-length hair becomes quite greasy and heavy. Recently it's been very humid and as the day goes on my hair becomes limp and oily at the roots. I bought this can out of desperation and was surprised to see that a small spritz helps control the oil and make my hair feel softer. The scent is a plus: sharp and clean without …Read more
