Cleansers - Pixi - Glow Mud Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2017

I used Pixi's Glow Mud Cleanser on and off for about four months as a second cleanser, after using Clinque's Take The Day Off cleansing balm.

Unfortunately from day one, this cleanser has given me sneaky under-the-skin pimples and white heads.

However it did the job of leaving my face feeling clean after use.

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye Concentrate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2017

For two years I've been using the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye as my eye cream, morning and night time.

The cream consistency is not thick nor too runny, it does a great job keeping my under eye area moisturised and hydrated.

It has a calming scent, quite like Lavender, not at all overwhelming. I have never had any redness / irritation from this cream, which is a …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

2.0

Jan/14/2017

Again, this is a shame.

I love Benefit's Dandelion shade of pink, it looks so lovely on the cheeks ... BUT ... like Benefit's Dallas bronzer, this breaks me out SO SO badly.

So again, if you're sensitive to break outs and spots, I'd say try Benefit blushers at the counter before you think about buying. You don't want to buy as it's pricey and …

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2017

I used the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water as a makeup remover before cleansing.

It found it easy to use the Micellar Water with the cotton wool, but I went through 6-8 pads to remove most of my makeup.

It does a good job removing eye makeup. My face however doesn't feel clean or hydrated afterwards. It felt dry, uncomfortable and itchy.

Although it's …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Dallas Dusty-Rose Blush & Bronzer

It's a shame ... this is a very nice coloured blush/bronzer, BUT it always breaks me out badly. This happens when I use Benefit's Dandelion blusher too.

If you're sensitive to break outs and spots, I'd say try Benefit blushers at the counter before you think about buying. You don't want to buy as it's pricey and let it break you out.

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser

Sep/21/2016

Paula's Choice CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser = 2.5/3 lipsticks out of 5, because I don't know whether I like or dislike this product.

I used this for three-four weeks as a second cleanser after I've removed my makeup/SPF with micellar water or a cleansing balm. I have normal/combo/spot prone skin.

This cleanser claims:
"Refreshing and gentle on the …

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Double Duty Base & Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2015

I prefer this to Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Top Coat, and this is why ...

I use Double Duty as base coat once, and as a top coat over my nail varnish twice, letting it dry for a good ten minutes in between. Yes, it's a lengthy process compared to the Insta-Dri - but I've noticed when I use Double Duty this way, the results are always great.

My nails feel …

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Light Makeup SPF10

May/05/2014

My problems are - my face gets quite oily throughout the day and whatever makeup I put on it just slides off, so have to keep touching with powdered makeup (which is annoying to touch up all the time, especially when I'm at work and at university). And my skin is very sensitive and prone to spots.

In the past I had bought MAC's Prolongwear foundation, MAC Skinfinish Powder …
