I picked this up on a whim because I'm a sucker for new foundations. Luckily for me this worked out for once because this one is a winner. I have greeeeassy skin and so usually I only wear concealer and powder foundation, however with it being winter my skin is more on the red side and I needed something with more coverage.

You don't need a lot to get medium to full coverage …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

I had given up on The Ordinary. Most of the products I had tried ranged from ok but not great to absolutely awful, and then CEO went nuts on Instagram. Then I began using a moisturizer with a small amount of niacinamide and saw good results, so I began to wonder if I would see even better results with a higher concentration.

I add three or four drops of this to my morning moisturizer …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Lotion Dry-Touch SPF 30

I am definitely in the minority here but I really like this sunscreen. I used to use Neutrogena dry touch with helioplex sunscreen but after researching the benefits of mineral sunscreen I made the switch to this.

Mineral sunscreens in general are much less cosmetically elegant than chemical ones and this one is no exception. It does go on white but this cast fades after a few …

The texture and wear of this sunscreen is nice, it's not greasy and it absorbs well. However after wearing it for two days, my face broke out in little bumps everywhere, almost like the surface of an orange peel. It got so bad on my neck that the little bumps began to fall off and bleed. I'm not sure what ingredient I reacted so badly too but I'm not down to wear this again and …Read more

Nope. No. Nah. This product is not for me. I gave it a good try. Two tries actually. The first time I used it for about 2 weeks only to have to stop due to a massive, painful breakout on my forehead. Since this was the newest introduction into my routine I stopped and waited to see if my skin would clear up. It did. For some reason I decided to give it another go for three nights a couple weeks …Read more

I've been using neutrogena's healthy skin with retinol on it and have noticed a few new creases on my forehead when my skin is dry so I decided to give this a shot. I lover the packaging, it comes with a pump that you can close after using. The cream itself is a nice consistency and absorb quickly. I used for about a week before I saw a significant difference in my fine lines. Tone is …Read more

Scrubs - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

I love this stuff. I originally bought it and returned it because it is a little hard to apply as a mask but recently picked it up on sale and thank goodness I decided to give it another shot. I wet my fave before applying and the mask sticks to my face better than it does to dry skin. Then I leave it on for about 15 minutes and enjoy the slight warming feeling. Then I hop in the shower and scrub …Read more

As a person with oily skin I've been searching for a good sunscreen that won't leave me looking shiny and greasy an hour after applying. This stuff is it. I apply this sunscreen, top with primer, then dust my face in loose powder and have no problem staying matte for the majority of my day. Highly recommend this stuff.

I'm pleasantly surprises by this powder. I usually steer clear of covergirl products but after reading some of the reviews here I decided to give it a try. I have very oily skin and have been searching for a product that is right for me. I apply sunscreen, then primer, then dust my face with this powder and I find it gives me a very natural and flattering finish. I have clear skin, except …Read more

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

Jul/25/2016

This stuff is so expensive it makes me want to cry, but it's also a product so good that I felt compelled to write a review. A botched highlight job and two color correcting jobs all within one week left my long, fine hair in shambles. It felt like wire at the ends and was frizzy and unmanageable. I bought olaplex as a last ditch effort, if it hadn't worked so well I would have had to …Read more
