Highly scented and highly irritating. Has a artificial pumpkin spice scent that made my skin burn and turn red. Labeled for dry skin, only use this is you have zero sensitivity.

Cleansers - Yes To - Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Melting Cleanser

The most noticeable this is the smell, strong and very off putting, more like rubber than coconut. Despite this the texture is very nice, creamy without any sudsing which is what I want in a cleanser for sensitive skin. However, it increased my redness, probably from all the fragrance, but it didn’t dry out my skin. I’d say this is a decent choice for someone with dry, resistant skin but if a …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Trader Joe's - Triple Milled Soap in Lemon Verbena

I was hoping this would be an affordable replacement to L'Occitane's lemon verbena soap. The price is right, and the scent is very nice, but I found this soap far too drying. I have skin that can be dry and sensitive, especially in the winter, but I used this during the summer and fall and still found it to be too drying. It wasn't drying to a point that my skin was irritated …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Own Renewing - Rejuvinating Cleanser

I love this stuff! I've been searching for a replacement for my former HG, Dove's Fragrance Free Non-Foaming Cleansing Lotion for years. Literally, years, since 2009. The ones I've tried have been too drying, too irritating, left an oily residue, didn't feel like they were cleansing my skin, or so expensive I didn't even bother to try them.

Just like Dove …

BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

Oct/07/2013

This is the most perplexing product I've used in awhile. I used the light formula, it came out of the tube with a thin and somewhat oily texture. It was white with a blue/grey tinge. Once applied to my face it turned my skin orange within a few minutes. I took it off and applied again in a very thin layer but got the same results. I've rarely seen something fail so brilliantly and …Read more

I have been using the product for years. At this point, I think I take it for granted. I stocked up when they were on clearance at Target several years ago, I don't know if I would have used this for so long otherwise. My stash is almost gone, and I plan on trying something different.

I am pleased that I have never had an issue with clogging in the tube (especially since mine …

Treatments (Eye) - Burt's Bees - Radiance Eye Cream with Royal Jelly

This cream was nothing special, but wasn't awful. It does what it claims by being moisturizing and smoothing out lines and puffiness. It does nothing for dark circles and the mica that's in it to "diffuses light to minimize the look of fine lines" makes your circles look darker and SOOO shiny making them look worse than if you had used nothing at all. To be fair, it …Read more

Moisturizers - Jurlique - Purely Age-Defying Day Cream SPF 15

I think this moisturizer should only be used by those with very dry skin, I think anyone else would find it to be too moisturizing. At some points in the winter my skin is quite dry so, unlike the other reviewers, I found this to be a nice product. I found the scent minimal and pleasing and it absorbed quickly and completely. It comes in an aluminum tube, which I liked because I think …Read more

Mascara - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Mascara

I would consider this to be more of an eyelash tint rather than a mascara; it did nothing to lengthen, volumize, or curl my lashes. All it did was darken my lashes, and it didn't do that for long because it smudges and streaks more than any mascara I have ever used. The tube looks nice and I like the way the brush applied the mascara (it reminded me of a Maybelline mascara called Soft Eyes …Read more

This unique scent is one of my favorites. It's warm without being foody, and sweet and floral while being somewhat masculine. It's good that I like the scent because this is heavily scented, I'm thinking of adding a fragrance free wash to this to dilute the scent and make it last longer. It suds up nicely without drying my skin, which surprised me since it was so heavily …Read more
