Scrubs - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
So.
Sensitive skin. Combination. With one exception, I'd never really had acne breakouts, and my skin game was pretty strong. I thought I'd switch up from my usual scrub, and it was cute and pink and smelled amazing. I like cute pink things that smell amazing.
And then after using it for ONE WEEK, I was desperately slathering E45 on my face and …

Foundations - REVLON - Nearly Naked Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/09/2016

I. Hate. The Bottle. So. Much.
How hard is a pump? Seriously? I have to use a q-tip with this. A Q-TIP. LIKE A PEASANT.
... So I bought this foundation determined to find light coverage, which had been eluding me for about a year by this point. I'd been mixing a much more high coverage foundation with moisturizer to sheer it out, but this was annoying to do daily because I'm …

Cleansers - LUSH - Let the Good Times Roll Face & Body Cleanser

So, I found out my favourite scrub was killing fish. (Clean & Clear Blackhead Erasing, if you're interested.) I cried. I wailed. I beat my fists against the walls. And then I took a deep breath, picked myself up and went down to Lush.
I tried a few different ones before settling but this is probably now my favourite. I have quite sensitive skin and for me, this strikes the balance …

Oh my god.
(What, you need more? Fine.)
So my skin is largely fine, apart from a random INSANE bout of cystic acne about two years ago which I still have scarring from. The other day I realized it was starting up again and fled in terror to Lush.
The mask, as mentioned by others, smells like mint chocolate icecream, which I'm actually not keen on - too sweet. The texture is …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara

You can't go far wrong with this mascara. Yes, as other people have said, the packaging can look a little childish, and it's suspiciously cheap... but for me, that's the point. This is an entry-level mascara. Give this to an over-zealous fifteen-year-old and even she will struggle to give herself spider lashes with it because it's just not designed to do that.
This …

Foundations - Max Factor - Ageless Elixir 2-in-1 Foundation + Serum SPF 15

Ooh, nelly. This is a tough one for me.
I bought this on the recommendation of a friend: should've been a warning, since I don't actually much like her beauty routine (although she is, of course, a wonderful person). First off: this foundation is great if you want high coverage that lasts for a long time.
Unfortunately, I don't.
I... struggled with this foundation …

BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Nude Magique CC Cream Anti-Redness SPF 12

First off, the good. It does indeed do what it promises, and it has a nice, silky finish to boot. My skin almost looks airbrushed, but it feels like you're wearing nothing at all (nothing at all! Nothing at all!) The Ned Flanders reference is for a reason. My face is now bright, buttercup yellow, and I want to point out that I avoided buying the Mac Simpsons collection precisely because I …Read more

Scrubs - Clean & Clear - blackhead eraser scrub

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/04/2013

First off: as others have said, this won't clear your blackheads (or at least it didn't clear mine). It's not really a scrub either, despite the name. And yes, the smell's kind of weird.
That said...
I've found this is one of the few products that I can use on a daily basis without my skin getting irritated by it (virtually every other product I've tried I …
