Eye Makeup Remover - La Roche-Posay - Respectissime Eye Make Up Remover (waterproof)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I have used Lancôme Bifacil for almost 7 years because I use waterproof mascara everyday. It was the only one that thoroughly removed my eye makeup without any mascara residue or lashes falling off. If you think about it, Respectissime falls under the L’Oréal brands like Lancôme, so I was thinking that they might have a similar formula. At first, I thought that this would not replace Bifacil …Read more

I must attest to the wonders of this product. I recently started using adapalene again when I went to my derm. I have not used anything retinol related in the last few years and the last time I did use it, I reacted severely with redness and peeling skin (yes it is the adjustment part). But it was SO uncomfortable, I couldn’t go through the regimen. I tried adapalene over the counter and …Read more

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

If I can give this 10 stars, I would! This has replaced my usual sunscreen from Replenix (ultimatte) and my usual shiseido for the summer. I get picky with sunscreens because my skin gets sensitive from chemical sunscreens and also break outs. I often opt for Asian sunscreens or European ones because they have more updated sunscreen technologies and are cosmetically elegant. Elta and Replenix …Read more

I jumped on this because I saw that they had olive skin tones in their line up! I have been using Cover FX and even though it is still my go to foundation, I couldn’t resist trying this one by Dior. 2WO is actually a very good match, in fact it is an even BETTER match than my Cover FX in G40. This one has a slightly yellower tone, while Cover FX appears olive- neutral next to it. The package is …Read more

This is my go to for clarifying my hair. To begin, I want to mention that I have Asian hair that is generally straight, medium in coarseness that is highly resistant to curling and fine, but lots of it. I have used the Biolage clarifying and also Redken’s cleansing cream. Redken’s is wonderful if you use a lot of product because it really does a great job clarifying. I minimally use hair styling …Read more

I realize that I only leave reviews on things that have absolutely been game changers for me and for those that didn’t work but was compelled to leave a fair warning. I have tried a significant amount of foundations, but what I have loved include:
Estée Lauder double wear (2W rattan)
Lancôme 24hr Teinte idole ultra foundation. (250)
Dior forever foundation (21 linen)
It …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser

Apr/05/2018

As I have gotten older, I realized how ensuring a proper pH and acid mantle to the skin is important. Therefore, I have been testing my cleansers with some pH strips to make sure that they are in the range less than 6. My skin has always been sensitive and I am in a constant balance between dehydrated and oily skin. I used to use Cerave hydrating foaming cleanser and have used it for 5 years …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

I was looking for a primer and sunscreen in one and I happen to try this after one of the youtube makeup videos mentioned it as an amazing primer. It applies matte, has a nice soft feel to it and it makes my makeup apply well (I use IT CC cream in light). It has a tint, but I am NC 25-30 and it blends well into my warm skin tone. I would say I get my oil breakthroughs at 6 hours, then I have to …Read more

*****************UPDATE 7/4/2018*******************
This is still in my routine and has been a steady product that prevents me from getting breakouts. I don’t know what it is but when I ran out of this and did not replenish, I got redness and minor breakouts, so I know it makes a difference if I skip it! I have significantly pared down my skin routine to just using this in the morning along …

Nov/09/2016

I also have the Shu, Shiseido, Kevyn Aucoin and most recently Surrat's. This is my HG eyelash curler. I have had it since its release and it is the perfect one for my eye shape. My eye shape is almond (asian eyes), eyelashes are long but very straight. I have tried all four in the last few years, starting with the Shu in my college years and most recently Surrat's. Triplexm did a …Read more
