I purchased the ELF brow cream on the same day with another brow products. The other brand comes in a glass jar with 0.09oz product while ELF comes in a plastic jar with 0.19oz of product.

The ELF medium brown goes well with my pale skin and brunet (dark brown with light brown) hair. I purchased medium brown basing on some online reviews. If I didn't read the review, I would have …

6 months ago

I purchased this with another brow product on the same day from the same store. Both products come in jars. They look similar in jar size. The Milani glass jar has 0.09oz of actual product while the other brand has 0.19oz in a plastic jar.

The Milani in #05 Dark Brown goes very well with my hair in brunet (dark brown with light brown). The color goes on my brows easily with a brow brush …

Aug/25/2016

My face usually get a bit itchy when wearing most silicone primers. Recently my husband used up his facial lotion, I thought I would buy this for him to wear and for me to try.

First of all, the scent is manly, but tolerable compared to other Nivea men's product (think their men's body wash and lotion!!). 2nd of all, the opaque glass bottle is heavy duty so I don't …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Oily Skin

Jul/22/2016

I used to use Cetaphil cleanser in the morning. A while ago I tried Cerave cleanser and liked it better, so I switched. Here's the reason for the switch:

Both for oily skin, my skin felt a bit tight after using Cetaphil. Cerave leaves my skin calmer. I always moisturize after cleansing. But given our desert humidity level, Cetaphil gives me 30 seconds to reach for my moisturizer …

I am not loyal to brands and usually switch between a dozen foundations. But last week my reminder pops up for reordering my 6th bottle of Almay TLC foundation. Wow! That's almost a record for me!

My skin was pretty much ruined by hormone imbalance. Most people experience that during adolescence. I, being a late bloomer, experience that after 40. Once like porcelain, now my t …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Small Stipple Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2014

I use ELF studio flat power brush to apply liquid foundation. Because the power brush is larger, it's hard to cover the folds at my nose. Picked up the Small Studio stipple brush for that purpose.

Because the ELF stipple is looser, it doesn't seem to stipple on thick liquid foundation very evenly (unlike the flat studio power brush). it's not perfect for my needs …

Dec/01/2014

I picked up an ELF stipple brush with one of my online order a few years back. My intended purpose for this brush was to stipple power blush. After using it for a few years, I must say it's perfect for my needs.

Since the past few years, I've been doing mostly natural makeup. So I only use very light pink or peach power blush to add some color to my washed out pale face. My …

Foundations - COVERGIRL - Covergirl and Olay Simply Ageless 3 in 1 Liquid Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2013

The acne treatment from my dermatologist is making my skin peel. No amount of cream and serum helps my usual foundation. So I purchased this in place of my usual foundation for oily skin. My skin likes it because after cleansing off the makeup, my face does not feel so dehydrated. It last a whole day on my cheek and forehead. It lasted about 3 hours on my oily t-zone which is not bad for this …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2012

I do not love this cleanser because it does not clean my pores as well as salicylic acid cleansers, and it does not remove makeup as well as cleansing oil or cold cream. My toner cotton pads always come out dirty after using Cetaphil cleanser. I also get seriously clogged pores and breakouts if I use Cetaphil as my only facial cleanser. So I have to include BHA/sulfur cleansers in rotation when I …Read more

Mar/31/2012

I have oily t-zone and this has not caused problems for me. However, I lowered the rating to 4 because this contains vegetable oil. If this is oil free, I would have given 5. This is a light spray which I spray and pat in as a toner after cleansing and before serum/moisturizer. I also use it as spray before/after primer, mist on powder, or facial refreshner anytime with or without makeup. It does …Read more
