Absolutely lovely. I am steadily approaching different The Ordinary items and this moisturiser is one if my favourite items in the range. It is really basic: it hydrates. NO scent,no fancy ingredients. Plain moisturiser.
But it does it well, absorbs instantly, dries matte, you can use it as a primer or for layering with other skincare (It is a good base for layering oils ot other The …

I decided to give this a try after years I had not used any MAC face products, as I often got disappointed by the formula and the pacakging ... they never worked for me (i really love their lip products, though).
Every concelaer creases on my under eye skin- never had great luck with concealers- and with my undereye skin turning drier in winter (and with age) I was curious on trying …

I decided to give this a try and see what the hype was all about. I had wanted to purchase this earlier but was put off by the price & by the fact every concelaer creases on my under eye skin- never had great luck with concelaers.
My shade is Custard, this is a tad lighter than my current NC 20-25 tone (strong yellow undertones) .
This is definitely a nice concealer, but I …

This cream ticks all the boxes: it is rich, yet not heavy not pore clogging (I have combo skin!).
I have had several deluxe stubes and a mini pot; I used this on an off as I consider it a trat and not a go-to, ordianry moisturizer (too expensive)
I only used it at night, or in winter on very cold days. The texture is divine, so is the scent (pls note this is a havy floral scent, super …

2.0

6 months ago

I saw this reviewed and much praised by a famous blogger that I follow, and although I was at first hesitant since I have a combo skin and my T-zone can be difficult to handle - I bought it, hoping in the same stellar results this lady proclaimed she had.
Will I ever learn that what is good for you may not be good for me? Note to self: I have to dismiss this bad habit of buying sight …

6 months ago

I was first hesitant and thought over it for months before buying, as I have a combo skin and my T-zone can be difficult to handle. However I was pleasantly surprised to discover this is neither sheer nor glowy!
I am a Santa Fe shade - a fair medium shade with strong yellow undertones in this season (I am a NC 20-25 w/yellow undertones in winter - spring) for the summer I will have to work …

Treatments (Face) - Algenist - GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

3.0

6 months ago

I got this in a deluxe little pot and it lasted me for one month. A little goes a long way, it is a mousse type quality cream. Texture is lovely and it's not greasy, therefore it is convenient to a combo skin like mine. No breakouts whatsoever so it's a big plus.
Goes on nicely. It evens out skin tone but does not do any dramatic change to skin texture. It has acid inside …

It's a lovely mask, smells divine (fresh, citrus scent). it has a slight yellow/orangey tint but it's a gel consistency. I just dont' get why it's called peel off mask, as it's a classic mask you have to rinse.
I keep it on for more than the 10 recommeded minutes -the more the better - it's so pleasant and will not tingle at all. Natural ingredients - please …

Masks - ______ - Beauty Kitchen Abyssinian Oil Night Halo Potent Sleep Mask

2.0

6 months ago

I got this in a mini deluxe pot.
I love the fact this Scottish brand is organic, however i didn't like this mask.
It is supposed to be left acting overnight, but i couldn't bear to have it on my skin more than one hour.
First: it is VERY thick. You can barely spread it on your face. Its grainy and the smell is unpleasant. Of course it is natural... however the smell of …

Moisturizers - Philosophy - Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer

6 months ago

I got this in a deluxe sample so i could try it and make my mind about it.
First, I read the ingredients list: silicones, silicones and.... did I mention silicones? 4 different types of silicones in the first two lines of the INCI list. This means they're the main ingredients (together with water).
At 64 dollars a pot, it's a rip off (=silicones are among the cheapest …
