Clothes - Unlisted Brand - Havaianas flip-flops

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

after hating flip flops the first 2/3 of my life, i've found my havianas to hit that perfect sweet spot of functionality, fashion (as much as cheap rubber flip flops can be fashionable), and comfort.

i own one pair and i have owned them for six years. here and there i'll get blisters (this mostly occurred within the first month i wore them), but every summer without fail these …

Lotions/ Creams - NUXE - Huile Prodigieuse (Multi-Purpose Dry Oil)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

what i like about nuxe huile prodigieuse is that it actually deserves much of its hype. it smells amazing, it looks beautiful on your shelf, and it can be used not only on your entire body - hair and face included. it isn't greasy either. you can literally use this before your makeup routine, even with oily skin, and have no issues with application or wear.

there are probably …

Masks - Unlisted Brand - AFY Aivoye Suction Black Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

blackhead strips have been around for decades, and for decades they've been powerless against extracting blackheads from my pores.

this vile, gooey mask is effective at doing that and while it's probably horrible for your skin, i'll continue to buy it because it is cheap on amazon and yields results.

if you decide to buy it, apply carefully so you don't make …

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Biotin (All brands)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

i started taking biotin two years ago because the thick, curly hair i had had all my life was no longer quite as thick (and no longer grew as long) once i hit 30. also, i had read that biotin could help repair my nails from the havoc wrought by bimonthly gel manicures.

i started out using the 5000 mcg capsules, used the 10,000 mcg for a while, and have since reverted back to 5000. since …

Pressed Powders - Sisley-Paris - Blur Expert

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

sisley calls this a "finishing veil" so i categorized this as a pressed powder (think like a cream-to-powder texture).

this is a product that will make you wonder where it's been all your life. i decided to try this after a brief description from a really good and knowledgeable sisley rep. basically what this does is it "finishes" your makeup and …

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

nowadays it seems like no one even bothers with mascara. everyone is wearing lash strips or getting extensions (and btw everyone can tell they're fake!!) but i am apparently as old-school as estee lauder's packaging and i just like a good mascara.

i did my own wedding makeup and i didn't like how it came out. not because the application was bad but it was entirely too …

Fragrances - Sisley-Paris - Eau De Campagne

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

i have wanted to buy this for years and i hemmed and hawed and finally did it.

many of my fragrance reviews are complains about staying power but this one gets a pass because it's an eau de toilette. regarding the scent itself, it COULD be unisex but i think i prefer it as a women's scent. it is a green herbal/garden fragrance that is a bit hard for this city girl to describe …

Fragrances - Sisley-Paris - Soir d'Orient Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

amazed this hasn't been reviewed yet (and even more amazed that i've bought it twice - not even because i'm done with the bottle i bought when it was first released, but because i'm in that much fear of running out).

most people who like sisley have smelled eau de soir; this is essentially that but spicer and therefore somehow even richer. there is no oud, which is …

Fragrances - GIVENCHY - L'Interdit

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

i never knew there was an original version of this until well after i bought it; i didn't care because i am not obsessed with audrey hepburn and have never owned anything from givenchy (perfume or otherwise). i just like trying new fragrances and i liked this one.

in fact, i still like it. i truly do. it's syrupy and sweet but with enough depth for my taste. unfortunately …

Cleansers - Estée Lauder - Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

once i received this as a full-sized gwp and once i actually bought it. i do like that a little goes a long way and i think this is one of the few products i've ever used where that's truly proven to be the case. that is why i rated the price as i did. $30 might seem pricey but this one tube will last months, even with daily use.

as a cleanser, however, it's extremely …
