This stuff is magic in a tin - used for the right purposes, that is.

My first encounter with this blue tin came during a summer trip to China a few years ago. Despite the godawful humidity, my skin was suffering horribly from dryness thanks to a newly started regimen of Retin-A and a poor selection of what skincare products to bring on a trip. Out of desperation, I went to the nearest …

I don't write a lot of reviews, but after using this BB cream for almost half a year, I can safely recommend this strongly. This is my favorite everyday base product; my second favorite foundation/BB cream in general. Why? First, the finish and the coverage are ideal. This BB cream gives a very natural-looking yet matte finish, which is perfect for my oily/combo skin - it makes me look like …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

Jul/31/2013

I don't normally review products, but after these last few weeks, I've decided that I absolutely have to share my experience with this product (the 2% BHA Liquid) so others can get the same amazing results I have.

So, first off, some backstory: I've always had meh skin. It'd break out sometimes, and I had a lot of scars from popping (bad, I know) so I always covered …

I truly wanted to love this foundation. It had everything I was looking for: convenient (and not ugly) squeeze-tube packaging, light coverage, and a lovely, silky formula. The natural ingredients were a bonus too. Unfortunately, 315 Flax was just too pink for my NC20 skin, and the next shade up, 320 Aspen, which I got a sample of, was also too pink. Don't listen to reviews that say …Read more

Let me start off with a disclaimer: I didn't buy this product, rather, I was using a sample of it I got in Vogue. That sample lasted me quite a while though, so I thought it would be okay to write a review for it.
First, some things about my skin. It's combination, so the only places I have EVER broken out in are usually around my T-zone. Never have I gotten any zits or clogged …

Lips - C.O. Bigelow - Mentha Lip Balm Stick

I just used up my first tube of this lip balm today, so I thought it was time for a review. First off, as you can guess, I loved this lip balm enough to use it up. (I am notorious for buying lip products and never finishing them.) It's oh-so-moisturizing and goes on like butter...without, you know, being as gross as butter. The packaging is standard twist tube, but looks pretty awesome with …Read more

I -love- this product. It just gives my face this beautiful polished glow - I have received so many compliments on my skin, and I'm sure this plays a major part in the reason why! You may not notice a difference right away when you apply this, but just wait - once you get used to it, you won't be able to go back! Once I skipped this because I had just gotten an MSFN and I thought that …Read more

Feb/05/2010

This is a great basic facial moisturizer for combination skin types like me - not too moisturizing for my oily T-zone, not too dry for my cheeks. It's gel-cream like in consistency and absorbs quickly. Some may complain about the lack of SPF, but I prefer that since I can use it at night too :) I like that this is organic, too - hey, I might not actually be making a difference, but it makes …Read more

Jan/27/2010

The previous pencil eyeliners I bought didn't last through the day, and so I had to keep reapplying them. Well, not with this! I purchased this eyeliner in Matte Brown/Black from Sephora (of course). I really like the packaging of this eyeliner - it's retractable so there's no need for a sharpener, there's a smudger on the other end (which I don't use, haha) that, when …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - COVERGIRL - CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer Fair to Light

Jan/19/2010

This is a decent tinted moisturizer I use on days when I know I'm not going out for too long. It's sheer, lightweight, and easy to spread, and as others have mentioned, slightly greasy feeling, but nothing I can't handle. The only con is that it doesn't seem to last too long on its own. Packaging is okay - I'd prefer a pump - but not bad. I'm an NC20-25, for …Read more
