Fragrances - Ralph Lauren - Beyond Romance Eau de Parfum

1.0

2 months ago

This scent is comprised of rose, centifolia, black vanilla. I am pretty open to a variety of fragrances and I would say I at least enjoy the vast majority of all perfumes and colognes I sample. Did not care for this at all. I think it just smelled way too sweet like cotton candy.

Pressed Powders - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Face Powder

Aug/28/2018

Rediscovered this after getting tired of my loose mineral foundation getting everywhere. I decided to try this again because of it's short ingredient list. Wasn't expecting much but am pleasantly surprised. My skin has been behaving itself lately (for the most part) so I am mainly looking for something to go over my sunscreen and give me a more finished look with some coverage. This has …Read more

I saw this soap sitting in a friend's bathroom and it smelled so great. It looked expensive but she told me she finds them at T.J. Maxx/Marshalls etc. I started to hunt around and have stocked up on several of my favorite scents including, Sandal Wood and Vanilla, Rose and Peony, Lavender and White Tea, and Cranberry and Winter Cherry (holiday edition). These make great gifts and I have …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2017

I was so excited to try this when it became over the counter. I try to buy it on sale or with a coupon which helps it to become reasonably priced for me. My skin had already been doing much better in the year prior to using differin but I do think this has helped clear the last 10% or so of my acne and helps to treat any pimples I get here and there. I use every other night and only experience …Read more

Sunscreen - NIVEA - Sun Protect Water Gel

As happy as I could be with a sunscreen. Great price, not a super tiny bottle, nice finish, no fragrance, no breakouts. I know Japanese sunscreens are not the highest PPD so for beach days I would prob stick to Euro ss but for daily incidental exposure I feel protected without all the downsides of the many of sunscreens I have tried expect for the Biore Mild Care milk which I find very similar to …Read more

I have the version in the little vaseline tub. While this is not my go to for chapped lips, it is very nice hint of color when I am going out without makeup on. Feels good and doesn't sting and not too sticky.

Sunscreen - Bioré - UV Mild Care Milk SPF 25 PA++

Apr/25/2016

My review is for the Biore UV Mild Care Milk SPF 30. I am not sure if they still make the spf 25 as this review states of if this is an updated version - but I am glad they have the spf 30 version. I have been using this for approximately two weeks on a daily basis and so far I am very happy. I have pale, combo skin that is very acne prone especially when trying new sunscreens. While I will need …Read more

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Oil Pulling

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

I stumbled upon the oil pulling method by accident. I read about it and while there are some extreme claims about its benefits and plenty of people who claim there is a lack of substantial research or it didn't work for them there were also a lot of positive anecdotal accounts. I had gone without dental insurance for a while and despite diligence at home had developed some signs of gum …Read more

Skincare - Face - Mary Kay - Extra Emollient Night Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2015

Well it is in fact highly emollient and thick. The bright pink is very pretty but I would never put this anywhere near my face. The perfume in this product has to be so high on the ingredient list and it is def more of an old lady smell to me. I mused my sample on rough patches such as elbows and ankles and it was nice for that but still the smell was intense. Would not buy the full size.
