Lip Treatments - eos - eos Smooth Stick - Vanilla Bean

Packaging is great. Vanilla is my favorite. The reviews were raving great great. I tried it, but it didn't work for me.

I have extremely sensitive lips. I've tried so many different lip balms and moisturizers, at the moment I'm using good old Vaseline - but even that sometimes irritates my lips. They become flaky, blistery, red and itchy when they go into that …

Cleansers - MD Formulations - Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin Formula

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/12/2012

I have sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin. Using a product to treat my acne and impurities will usually cause itchiness, flakyness and my eczema to flare up. While using products that focuses on treating that sensitive skin, would clog my pores and give me acne breakouts. So, I've long since accepted the fact that this is my skin and it'll never get truly …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

There are so many people raving about this product; I see it used everywhere and I get it recommended repeatedly, but I need to say, it is highly overrated! The packaging is awful, with sharp edges and soft metal which easily tears, letting the pricey product ooze out at odd angles. The product was useless on my hands. I loved the smell and when applying it, it left a slightly greasy feeling - …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Romeo & Joliet

My first meeting with OPI and I LOVE this color as well as the polish. Easy application and a FANTASTIC color! A rich, dark red with a bronze tint in the light! So elegant! It is a bit darker than what I expected (I use two applications) but nonetheless very beautiful! Recommend this to everyone, just about! :D

Lipstick - Dr. Hauschka - Dolce (09)

My everyday-lipstick! I love wearing this with some good ol' fashioned vaseline so that my lips get this pale pink and glossy color. The lipstick has a bronzey sheen to it and I have received compliments for the pale sophisticated touch of this lipstick. I keep describing it with pale because it is a very natural-looking color, which I believe could complement any skin tone. In accordance …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Oct/24/2010

This product helped me a lot back when my skin was hyperallergenic and very acne-prone. It did not give me additional blemishes as many other products did, and it did not provoke my eczema. So truly, try this range if you have problems with everything else. I've switched over to using Matis now, but I used it for so many years and it was so good to me. I have a sensitive combination/somewhat …Read more

Lip Treatments - DECLÉOR - Aromessence Lip Balm

Oct/24/2010

I gave this to my sister after trying it out, hopefully she'll have more luck with it. The smell takes a while to get used to, and it hardly moisturized at all for me. In addition I think I got some kind of allergic reaction from using it. I hoped this would be the IT lipbalm for me, but nope. It's way overrated for its price if you ask me. I'd much rather stick to good old …Read more

I had no expectations when I bought this blush, I only did because it was so cheap and I needed a blush at that time. But I'm very surprised by how much I like it. I have it in Frosty Mocha (19) and it gives off a very beautiful, healthy, girly blush. It's one of the better colours that I own. I had some trouble to begin with because, I too like some of the others, found it too …Read more

Lipstick - shu uemura - Lipstick

Oct/24/2010

Shu Uemura's lipstick has AMAZING packaging. Picking it up from my purse or pocket gives me such a glamorous, modern feeling. But that's pretty much it for me. I was desperately looking for a good lipstick which I could use every day. I'm not even sure what colour I bought, but it says BG 945 on the bottom if that helps anyone. The salesman picked it out for me, and told me to go …Read more

I have sensitive-oily-combination skin. A really strange combination and an annoying one at that. But I really do like this product. It helps regulate oil - not the whole day - but a lot more so than other skin-care products I've tried so far, so after 4-5 hours and with a few powder-touch ups, you're good to go!


It emits a faint scent when you apply it, smells good …
