I struggle to rate this fairly because I think it's a great product compared to a bunch of other similar products I've tried. I think that mineral sunscreen might just not be for me.

The pros: (1) it's cruelty-free; (2) looks very natural both in terms of tint (on my complexion) and in terms of texture. I like my skin to look super dewy so this mattifies more than …

Caveat: I have normal slightly combination skin and of the 3 REN cleansers I have I don't like any of them so it might just be that this brand or range isn't for me.

Although I really dislike the Evercalm Cleansing Milk, this isn't that bad. I don't think it's effective but it doesn't bother me the way that the cleansing milk and cleansing balm from this …

Oct/06/2017

Caveat: I have relatively normal skin, slightly combination. I have 3 REN cleansing products and don't like any of them, so it might just be that the brand or the range I tried is not a good fit for my skin.

When I think of a milk I think of something at least slightly more liquidy than this product (which comes out relatively thick) and that doesn't leave a stubborn film on …

This product has a few things going for it but a few things that I personally really dislike.

Pros:
-- super natural finish
-- almost totally undetectable on the skin
(these are two really important points for me which is why I'm bummed about the cons).

Cons:
-- SO MUCH SILICONE, UGH I absolutely hate how siliconey it feels and how it sits on the …

I LOVE this curl custard! What I love most about it is the way it makes my curls look. I've used Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie but I have to say I prefer this. For some reason this product I had bought a long time ago and I didn't try it because I thought it looked cheaper so assumed I wouldn't like it as much. But it's actually lighter and my curls feel softer and not weighed …Read more

Oh my god this smell!! I thought people were exaggerating. I didn't know what I was expecting but for me the fragrance combines the coconut-y tropical scents we're used to in more conventional body creams and sprays but makes them slightly more sophisticated and more sensual. Absolutely love this and the texture is super luxurious (I like that it's not watery or gel-like but not …Read more

I absolutely love this foundation. It's the foundation I use all days that I wear makeup. It is dewy, super natural, pretty much undetectable and buildable. I have pretty normal skin (neither oily nor dry) and I don't feel it's super long lasting but I don't use primer, powder or setting spray. The only reason I still look for other foundations is to find something with fuller …Read more

This is a solid moisturizer for people who like a thick cream. It's not so thick that it doesn't spread. The consistency is pleasant. It is pretty neutral so I imagine it is hard to hate. If you like products that smell and feel neutral and non-irritating, aren't expensive but are thick, then I imagine you might like this. I believe there are lots of products that are probably …Read more

Sep/12/2017

These are totally worth the hype and I'm not a big fan of glosses. I have 3 shades (Angel Food Cake, Raspberry Tart, and Cherry Pie). The colors are super pretty, the texture is really pleasant, application is really seamless whether you're using them on their own or over lipstick/lipliner, they layer really nicely over different colors to add depth, they're long-lasting (though …Read more

Sep/12/2017

I had high hopes for this as I was looking for a foundation that was extremely long-lasting, medium to full coverage, dewy (or at least luminous), and that looked really natural. A tall order, I realize but that is what this foundation sounded like when I saw beauty gurus on Youtube raving about it. I think they're probably just used to a way less natural look than what I am looking for …Read more
