Oct/01/2016

I love MUAC peels. And what a great company. Affordable products and excellent customer service. So I don't want to give this stuff a negative review...I think I might just need a higher percentage. But I've not seen much in the way of results from this particular peel. In fact it makes my skin look a little rough for a couple days and then nothing. I've been using it weekly for a …Read more

I thought nothing would ever budge my hyperpigmentation. It's a combination of sun damage and melasma that used to be so light that I honestly never really noticed it. If I squint super hard while looking at old photos taken up close in just the right lighting, I can see the outline of what would eventually become these dark spots. An ill advised BBL session brought them out in full force …Read more

I've had a long, contentious history with Taz. It went from giving me skin that looked like glass to giving me skin that looked like an inflamed orange peel to giving me red face to giving me the ability to finally clear some problem pores (albeit with a red face again).

In the end, my verdict is that Taz can work well for you if you find the right formulation and frequency and …

This sunscreen can go to hell. I've spent the past 2 years carefully avoiding the sun, wearing ridiculous hats, slathering myself in sunscreen that either broke me out or made me look greasy and pale, all in the name of avoiding a tan or darkening of my melasma. I ran out of my beloved Skinceuticals physical spf and put this on today bc i was just going to work. I walked 30 min there with a …Read more

I am approaching age 35 and have been wearing mascara since junior high. Back when I was young, I could throw anything on my lashes and they looked great. I didn't understand why so many mascaras existed! Ah, youth. I miss it. Now that I am an old graying mare with sparse lashes, I realize why so many mascaras exist. It's because a lot of them suck. This mascara, thankfully, does not …Read more

Update Sep 2016:
I'm sad to report that I'm going to rotate this out. Like, really sad. Bc this stuff is good, and so far I hate the feeling and look of the other physical spfs that i have tried.

I'm doing an experiment in my quest to clear my closed comedones on my chin and forehead (which are far worse on my chin... nearly invisible on forehead, but def still …

Jun/09/2016

My holy grail cream cleanser is clean& clear 10% bp wash. If only they'd make a version without the bp and menthol, then I could just rotate between those two for the rest of my life. Since they don't, this is the next best thing I've found. It's gentle, it gives me a clean feeling, and you only need the tiniest bit to do your whole face. I like to blot with 50/50 acv and …Read more

I fell for the hype. This was not even as good as most drug store mascara I've used. The formula is dry and doesn't wear well over my beloved Dior lash plumping serum. A better, cheaper option is Maybelline full and soft.

Sep/15/2015

Update 6/8/2016: Still using and loving this. My only wish is that they made a version of it without the BP and menthol. If I could rotate between one version with the active ingredient and one without, that would be ideal (and if they just lost the menthol all together, that would be great). I absolutely will never be without this cleanser again. I do wish I could get by only using something …Read more

Update 6/8/2016: I really want this cleanser to work for me. I have tried using it a few times since my original review. But my skin feels gross and unclean every time I try it.
Original:
I just can't get into this. Been using it for a month. I agree that the texture is great and my face never feels stripped after using it. But it also doesn't feel clean. I don't mean …
