OMG…found this in an old box of toiletries that I’d been storing in a closet for 5+ years & it is STILL tingly, fresh & more effective than any cleanser I’ve ever used! Even after all this time sitting in storage, it feels indescribably fresh & minty; in fact, it leaves my face so spotlessly clean & matte that my usual morning cleanse is rendered nearly pointless. I consider this …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Waxelene- The Petroleum Jelly Alternative

May/05/2018

Waxelene has become extremely difficult to find anywhere but Amazon & the prices there have varied wildly in some highly disturbing ways. That’s a shame because I think I’ve tried nearly every lip product on the market & nothing compares. It even puts several of those outrageously expensive but beloved cult classics to shame (looking at you Smiths, La Mer, L’occitane & By Terry) …Read more

It is absolutely heartbreaking that this perfume has been discontinued. Of all the scents I have worn and loved, it was my absolute, unequivocal favorite. I wore it during the happiest time of my life, discovered it during a wonderful holiday shopping trip with my sister at Saks, and strongly suspect that I will never find anything I love so much, nor will there will ever be another like it in …Read more

Jul/20/2017

Wow! I probably never would have looked twice at this particular lipstick in the store, but discovered why it is so coveted after receiving a sample card of approximately 6 mac lipstick bubbles in the mail. That was truly brilliant marketing because I am now obsessed with this stuff and will buy it the second I find it on sale. I usually shy away from reds and would ordinarily have been …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

frombecca7

Jun/21/2017

This product(s) (both the hydrating cream and gel formula for oilier skin) are among my favorite cleansers of all-time! Both Toleriane cleanser formulas are gentle, contain no SLS or other problematic ingredients, are easily accessible at the drugstore & quite affordable (as they often go on sale). Best of all, they cleanse beautifully without stripping and in the case of the hydrating …Read more

Jun/21/2017

I bought this because it was extremely inexpensive (on clearance at TJ Maxx) and I was desperate to find a gentle cleanser without unnecessary ingredients or SLS before leaving on a trip. The only cleansers I've used for the last year or so have been LRP's Toleraine in both the dry and oily formulas, depending upon my skin's needs (they were on sale - buy one get one free, you …Read more

May/12/2017

I tried this recently while playing at my new neighborhood Ulta and wasn't impressed (although some clearly love it). It had more coverage than you might think given that it is called a "tint." Meanwhile, it was also thicker and greaser than I anticipated for something called "water gel." It definitely did not dry down matte and looked like a rather shiny cream that …Read more

May/10/2017

You may have think one bottle of micellar water is the same as another, but you would be wrong. However, during my exhausting drugstore quest to analyze the ingredients of every line of the latest craze in cleansing, I did discover they all have one thing in common...an excess of hexylene glycol. The more astute among you (or those who utilize the handy analysis provided by CosDNA) will …Read more

Cleansers - Avalon Organics - Intense Defense Detox Towlettes

May/10/2017

I may have mentioned in other reviews that I have made a vow to use only products which check out on CosDNA.com and contain a minimum of problematic ingredients. It is part of my 2017 resolution to keep my pores as clean as possible (I know, I know...I aim high in life).

In any event, aside from Dickinson's Witch Hazel wipes, I discovered during an exhaustive (and exhausting) …

Cleansers - Soap & Glory - The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.
frombecca7

May/10/2017

This is yet another pre-cleansing makeup remover with an eve.lom inspired cloth that is meant to be used along with the cream in order to enhance the experience, better remove product residue and perhaps do a bit of exfoliation as well.
Soap & Glory's version of first-step cleansing is a basic cream that, unlike many recent formulations, doesn't do any magical tricks or …
