Review for “with Pink Grapefruit Seed Oil”
Bought on sale - what a waste of money!
These towelettes don’t have enough wetness, so they barely take any makeup off.
The hole/slit to remove the towelettes is very small and I kept getting 2 wipes as I had to dig into the ridiculously tiny hole.
“Oil”? Not oily at all (I was hoping for a little oil which I find helps remove …

Tinted Moisturizer - Unlisted Brand - Sweet Leilani

Sep/19/2017

My skin: mature, sensitive, breakout prone. Some acne scars and sun damage. Less is better on my skin.

Conclusion: Looks and behaves more like a BB Cream than a tinted moisturizer. More opaque than I like in a tinted moisturizer. Low SPF means it's only ok for Fall/Winter - I tanned using this alone this summer. Looks too "makeup" for me, but if you are wanting coverage …

May/07/2017

My skin: mature, reactive/sensitive, acne prone, combination with some dry areas. My face seems happiest with the fewest products possible on it during the day.

I've tried so many facial sunscreens and this is the best of the bunch - have now used it for 2yrs.
Other sunscreens (high end/low end) cause major breakouts or irritation after a few days.
I've had …

My hair: fine, thin, coloured

The absolute bomb!

Pros: lightweight and natural looking; hair feels nice to touch; movement memory; no weird smell; provides natural looking shine; doesn't cancel out my (Mousse-assisted) volume; hair looks great on day 2

Cons: price; the can is very tall and I don't find it easy to hold

Note: if you ARE …

My hair - fine, thin, coloured.
Stil my fave - and periodically I try other brands, including high-end salon brands.
This Mousse is light, smells fantastic and gives realistic, non fuzzy volume. It does not make my hair look dry and leaves a natural shine.
Many mousses just seem to frizz out each hair too much and I'm left with dry looking frizzed-a bit volume - poofyer hair …

Nice non-yellow, slightly cream white. It's very sheer - don't think it's really destined for an opaque look. One coat - and its a lovely shine, a light sheer white. 2 coats and there's now some streakiness. 3 coats and the streaks even out and now it's definitely white and not quite opaque. To me it look best after 1 coat, like YNBB.

I just don't learn when it comes to Essie's light colors - the colours themselves are so pretty, but application is a pain.
Muchi Muchi is a very lovely light pink in the bottle, and I was really looking forward to having that colour on my nails. Not going to happen. First coat is extremely streaky, 2nd not much better. No way am I going to put on 4, 6 or 7 coast so polish (as some …

EDIT: Have stopped using this - started to break me out if I used it everyday. I'm really reactive to the chemicals in face makeup, but I feel that this would be a very good product for anyone (with less reactive skin) wanting a very light/natural look. Now using Sweet Leilani Tinted Moisturizer (100% Vegan/no parabens) ... so far so good.

Edit: this chips surprisingly quickly and easily.

"Pink is pinker" - yup. "White tips are whiter" - nope. Doesn't matter in what light I look at my nails ... The tips are pink toned. Which makes sense because this is a clear pink toned polish.

Creates a nice look though, but there must be a less expensive dupe out there (I paid $31 Cdn). Back in the …
