Treatments (Face) - Go-To - Face Hero

5.0

6 months ago

I'm jumping on the positivity bandwagon too early with this but there's always time to edit it.
I'd been coveting this oil since Go-To landed in regular access to consumers in Australia via Mecca.
I don't know why but for me, face oils seem to be the pinnacle of skincare luxury. You have all your creams and lotions and toners and balms but a face oil just seems like …

Brows - Kat Von D - 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade

5.0

Great product.
After colouring my hair bright red I struggled to find a brow product outside of auburn's that were red enough to not look silly against the new colour.
Initially I had gone copper and purchased ABH below pomade in auburn which was great for that colour.
However after going bright ruby red, it wasn't enough.
In came the KVD brow pomade in Scarlett. A …

Masks - Alpha-H - Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask with Lavender

A so-so product .
Generally, you expect masks to be quite concentrated and work their magic. And most masks have an instant gratification or some gradual effect.
I don't notice much with this mask.
I got a deluxe sample tube from sephora as a two a while ago. There's a fair few uses in the tube.
Smells of lavender, is a cream paste so doesn't really dry down …

Treatments (Eye) - Ole Henriksen - Banana Bright Eye Creme

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/24/2018

Sigh. Much like everyone here i had high hopes for this creme. Of course we naturally want a hydrating/firming/moisturising/plumping etc eye cream, but the seller, or rather gimmick of this was the promise of a sort of "inbuilt" banana powder.
Well. I guess it does. For maybe 5 mins until the cream sinks in and then its not much more than a standard eye cream.
I do have …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/07/2018

I was really looking forward to trying this for a long time, but my hopes were unfortunately dashed.
Siicone based primers generally work quite well for me, and i did try it under numerous foubdations with a similar result every time: exaggerated pores i never knew i had, crusty looking texture (my skin is very good), clung to any dry skin around my nose, mouth and chin.
A little …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/28/2018

Was so keen on this lip balm. I was lured in by the buttery texture and the scent, but the price for so little product is nowhere near worth it. Here's the breakdown:
Pros:
* smells delicious, not caramel though. More like a cotton candy with a lemon sugar undertone . Though, the more you smell it, a chemical undertone also lingers
buttery, smooth, non sticky …

Moisturizers - First Aid Beauty - Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer

Aug/22/2018

This is the second time I've purchases a tube of this. Is it because i adore the product? Well yes. Is it a neccessity and a lifesaver? No.
This is a really simple and pleasanr product to me, and i think some members here are mistaking it for a moisturising PRIMER as opposed to a priming MOISTURISER.
I basically use it in the morning, after toner, as a day moisturiser with …

Lip Treatments - LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2018

Ah this is a funny one. I purchased this product thinking "mask" = ridiculously hydrating, and this was very disappointed after a few uses. But there's a turnaround to this story.
After getting over the initial disappointment, I figured I'd used a chunk out of this, so may as well continue.
I've used this nightly pretty much ever since I got it maybe 2 or 3 …

Toners - Mario Badescu - Special Cucumber Lotion

Jun/05/2018

I've been using this toner for a few weeks now and I'm impressed.
I've been a fan of MB for quite a few years now, having started on the papaya enzyme mask many moons ago, and moving onto the night creams and some day creams. I especially love the enzyme cleanser, which has been an on-off staple for a few years now.
I decided to give this a go based on trying to find …
