Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 days ago

I bought this quite some time ago, used it for a few days and thought it might be breaking me out so tucked it away in a drawer where it sat unused. Fast forward to a few months ago when I developed a patch of dry itchy eczema on my shin and was looking for something to help that. I pulled out this PC HA booster, applied a drop or two and then topped it with a drop of SIBU sea buckthorn oil …Read more

Eyes - Ardell - Magnetic Lash Accent #001

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I picked these up to get free shipping while ordering something else online figuring they'd either be a total bust or a nice way to step up my eye makeup for pictures and special occasions. Some background: I already have pretty decent lashes that are long and dark so have only worn falsies a couple of times in my life (my wedding, make-up rehearsal for my wedding) which were applied by a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I've been wanting to try a product with niacinamide as I've read that this ingredient can be good for barrier repair and my rosacea prone, dehydrated skin struggles with this very issue. TO's zinc & niacinamide seemed like a good place to start as the price point was pretty much unbeatable and the product seems to be liked by many.

I trialled the product rather …

Masks - 100% Pure - Caffeine Mask

4.0

2 months ago

This mask was a pleasant surprise as I'm always quite hesitant to try new products and 100% Pure products have been very hit or miss for me. As autumn sets in here in the mid-Atlantic, the outdoor air has turned drier and after spending a day outdoors at DH's office picnic and the evening at a baseball game, I removed my sunscreen to find my skin quite zapped of moisture. The next day …Read more

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50

4.0

2 months ago

I have the Sunshield in the Nude tint which is for Light/Medium skin. Unfortunately, on my pale skin this tint is a bit too dark and orange. I would need to self tan my body to make this one match. To be fair, I've only ever come across one brand of tinted sunscreen that had a light enough color match for my skin and that's Suntegrity. I have the pump dispenser and it's rather …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Gel SPF50+ PA++++

5.0

2 months ago

This is my favorite chemical sunscreen for body! I'm planning to order more and stock up once the weather here cools down a bit. The texture is lovely and it feels like nothing on your skin plus I've never gotten any hint of sun exposure when wearing it. I've tried it once or twice on my face but as it does contain alcohol probably isn't something I'd want to use daily on …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Tolede

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I see I'm one of the lone dissenters on this one. I'm normally a fan of Nars lipsticks but this color is disappointingly a bit too orange on me. Definitely not a MLBB lippie as it looks a bit unnatural on my very fair, cool toned skin. I got a mini of this and figured it'd be perfect to have in my purse and while I like the packaging, there's no way I'd want to wear this …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have No. 44 Nude Lavalliere which is described by Sephora as a pinkish brown. I'm fair with a cool leaning skin tone and this shade actually muted my natural lip color rather than enhancing it. It is also very shiny, has a thin, oily texture and a scent that is unpleasant to use...it's hard to place but perhaps like cantaloupe or honeydew melon. I don't care for anything with too …Read more

Treatments (Face) - IS Clinical - Pro-Heal Serum Advance+

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I trialled this serum for a couple of months. It's quite a dry texture so don't expect this to add any moisture to your skin. It contains Vitamin C, Olive Leaf Extract, Vitamin E and Vitamin A and is touted to treat rosacea, cystic acne, insect bites and some forms of dermatitis. I'm prone to rosacea and dermatitis so was testing it for those. Both of these conditions tend to flare …Read more

Moisturizers - La Mer - Creme de la Mer The Moisturizing Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I received a small jar of this as a sample when I ordered a product from Sephora. I have sensitive skin that is prone to rosacea flares so several ingredients in this cream gave me pause. I applied it as directed for several days and much to my surprise it never flared my rosacea nor broke me out. The scent is a bit strong and reminds me of the creams my grandmother always kept on her vanity so …Read more
