Found out about this on a Reddit forum. I'm using retinol and can't handle any acid toners on my (dehydrated combo 30s) skin at the moment.
It's similar to the Tatcha enzyme wash but I believe this powder is more coarse (haven't tried Tatcha so can't say for sure). The opening is pretty big so be careful when pouring it out. I just wet my face then apply as it …Read more
Mid 30s Asian mixed, dehydrated combo skin here, have been using this alongside a vitamin c serum at night for about a month. For some reason I'm only now trying this as I'd been focusing only in vitamin c to brighten some scars on my face.
I have to say after using with Vitamin c my face appears much brighter and clearer in the morning. Bear in mind I use the …Read more

I got this for about $6.99 to add an antioxidant to my morning routine. Because I live in the tropics I don't use vitamin C during the day and I don't usually use it at night when I use retinol. I'm happy to say there was no pilling or balling up and it works well under my moisturiser and sunscreen during the day.

After using this I got comments from friends about my glowing skin. However I wouldn't recommend using this if you have retinol in your routine. Even though I alternated nights and used it just once a week, it made my skin barrier too thin (I'm using The Ordinary 1% retinol in squalane). Maybe the 5% Lactic Acid is better for retinol users.
I'm 36 with generally problem-free skin, deepening wrinkles under the eyes and dry/dehydrated skin. I got this as part of a birthday freebie from Sephora along with the DE cleanser.
I've been using for about a week and a half and so far it's helped restore my skin barrier which I damaged by using retinol and acids too closely together. Feels 'wet' when applied …Read more
I've actually just made my third purchase of this shade. The Rouge Dior formula is comfortable and natural and I think this shade is just right for my (very yellow MAC NC35/NC40) skin tone. It's neutral yet slightly warm, feels comfortable, looks natural but is better than bare lips. It doesn't last long however....hence my third purchase.

This does a great job of sun protection, went out in Caribbean midday sun with 31'C temps and didn't feel a burn.
However even though it's for sensitive skin it clogged my pores and I got a pimple on my cheek. I think it might be the castor oil. Just means I need a different sunscreen for my face.
The reason I have this four lippies is because the product does what it's supposed to, which is conceal redness and provide a more even complexion.
However after a few days of use I've seen some small bumps at the end of the day.
My office is usually hot and I live in the tropics so that may be part of it.
I find it moisturizing in the morning but my dry …Read more
EDIT: Had to remove 2 lippies because this sunscreen does not protect against UVA1 rays. It protects against UVA2 and UVB rays (Ethylhexyl Triazone (blocks UVB) and Uvinul A Plus) only.
The only actives that protect against UVA1 are Zinc Oxide, Tinosorb S and Tinosorb M.
Krave Beauty's Beet Shield is a better option for a broad spectrum sunscreen that doesn't …Read more
