Sunscreen - COOLA - SPF 30 Cucumber Mineral Matte Sunblock

Jan/13/2018

This is my first mineral sunscreen. I was using La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra Fluid prior to this which is roughly the same size but less expensive. Its $29CAD compared to Coola which is $48CAD. That is an AMAZING sunscreen but I'm no longer using chemical sunscreens so I didn't repurchase. LRP does have a mineral option but so far I've only been able to find the tinted or …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Pixi - Overnight Glow Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2018

I love this serum! It's thick but not greasy. I use 2 drops and i pat it into my skin and then very gently massage it in focusing on my problem areas (cheeks). It does leave a sticky residue behind but it absorbs into your skin after about 10 minutes or so. The dropper isn't the best and rather impractical. It doesnt pick up a lot of product and when you go to put it back in the bottle …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Nip + Fab - Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme

5.0

Jan/13/2018

I love these pads! I wanted to start relatively slow introducing my skin to acids. My only regret was not starting sooner. These have been amazing. I did go for the 'extreme' pads even though I wanted to start slow but so many people across the beauty community said they aren't strong at all. With only 5% glycolic acid I can now echo that sentiment. I have oily skin and I've …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Jan/13/2018

I've been using this cleanser for about three weeks now. I went back to a drugstore brand simply because I feel my money is better spent elsewhere in my skincare routine (for example, my serums).

I have oily, acne prone & sensitive skin and this has been amazing for me. I use this cleanser as a first cleanse in the AM (a half pump) and as my second cleanse at night (1 pump) …

Palettes - Kat Von D - Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2017

Easily my favourite nude/natural/everyday wear matte palette. The colours will work for ANY skin tone and blend so easily. I love the booklet that comes with it with ideas for how to contour the eye (really neat stuff) but even using it not for the purpose of contouring, this palette is perfection. You can create so many versatile looks with these shadows.

There isn't much else …

Mar/17/2017

Update: i still love this palette and use it here and there but my mirror separated from the palette the other day. It was so odd. I've never dropped it and I'm not rough with it. All i did was go to use it one day, opened the palette and it fell right off. Very weird. I just wanted to warn folks to be careful.

This palette is 100% worthy of the hype it's …

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Duo Mat Powder foundation Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2017

When I wear a full face of makeup this is a gorgeous powder but on its own its nothing special. Even though this applies matte initially, i find my skin is oily after a couple hours & that's why I can't give this 5 lippies BUT I can't deny the powders consistency - very finely milled and the colour is perfect. The coverage is pretty good as well and I never experienced any …Read more

Masks - Unlisted Brand - Now Solutions Moroccan Red Clay

Mar/17/2017

This product is amazing!

I mixed 1 tbsp of clay with 3 tsp of rose water. I will probably half the recipe as I had a lot left over and I felt it was a waste so I have to play around with the measurements. Make sure you use a plastic spoon or measuring spoons. The metal will react with the powder which you don't want - I can't explain the science behind it off the top of my …

Moisturizers - LANEIGE - Water Bank Gel Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2016

I'll try and keep this short and sweet. I love the hydration I get from this cream gel. It's super light and non greasy and perfect for my oily skin but I think it may be the cause of a couple cystic acne bumps. I don't know if it was or the laneige multi cleanser. I returned both as I since have found better products without fragrance which I think we're the reason my skin …Read more

Cleansers - LANEIGE - Laneige Multi Cleanser

Oct/10/2016

This is weird for me because at first I loved it and I still don't exactly hate it.. But I had to return it. I like using black soap once or twice a week so Im used to that "stripped, squeaky clean" feel after cleansing and the multi cleanser gave me that but its fragranced and I can't pinpoint if it was the cleanser or the laneige water bank gel cream but one of those two …Read more
