Toners - Dear Klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Toner

1.0

25 days ago

Sadly, all this did was really irritate my skin. I heard all sorts of great reviews about this toner from skincare experts and even though I don’t really fit the target audience for this toner (I don’t have dry skin at all), I am trying to use a more gentle approach to my base skincare so I got this.

I have acne prone and very very very oily skin that’s occasionally sensitive, although I …

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

4.0

27 days ago

I do think this is a good product for acne and a decent exfoliant, it just doesn’t suit my skin type and preferences.

To start with, I have very oily and acne prone skin that gears more towards whiteheads, mild acne spots and the occasional cystic acne spot. I find this is pretty effective for my mild acne and helps with hyperpigmentation and overall texture but doesn’t do much for …

Sunscreen - SKIN AQUA - Tone Up UV Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ (2019 Formula)

3.0

1 month ago

I normally avoid alcohol in sunscreens but when I do make an exception, I expect it be invisible and lightweight. Considering alcohol is one of the top ingredients in this sunscreen, I was expecting a very lightweight, comfortable sunscreen. Sad to say, it was not. When I apply it, it does sink in quickly to the skin but it leaves behind a tacky feeling. It can be remedied with powder of course …Read more

Sunscreen - Dear Klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++

5 stars all across the board for me! I was pleasantly surprised by this sunscreen. I’m used to alcohol free sunscreens to be heavy and tacky, so that’s what I was expecting from this. Instead, it’s one of the most lightweight alcohol free sunscreens I’ve tried. Actually it’s probably one of the lightest formulas I’ve tried ever. It’s not as light as the fan out Biore one, but that’s got a huge …Read more

Treatments (Face) - By Wishtrend - Teca 1% Barrier Cream

Overall, pretty disappointed with this product. To start, I have oily, acne prone skin that is sometimes prone to sensitivity. I got this to use during those moments when my skin is more sensitive than normal, plus I read this it’s good for acne scars because it helps the skin to heal.

I found this performed like an average moisturizer. It didn’t find it to have any special calming …

Cleansers - A-Derma - Soap-Free Dermatological Bar with Oat Milk

5.0

I try to use bar soaps whenever possible to reduce waste, and I’m so glad I came across this bar. I was looking for a gentle cleanser to replace my Fresh Soy Cleanser, which is amazing but also incredibly overpriced. The Aderma Cleansing Bar is soap free, the right PH, incredibly affordable, gentle and yet leaves my very oily and acne prone skin feeling clean and not stripped, which I’ve found is …Read more

Hair - Bumble and bumble - Pret a Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I have a pretty oily scalp, so dry shampoo is a staple for me. I stick with mostly non-aerosol types because it lasts longer and therefore ultimately cheaper in the long run, and there’s less waste!

Even though my wallet disagrees, my hair seems to love Bumble and Bumble products, it works like magic on my hair. This was almost HG for me, but not quite. Visually, it’s works perfectly! …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Paaarty

I was surprised by how much I liked this. I received the mini in the Sephora birthday gift and immediately thought this was going to be way too light and cool on my NC35 skin. That did turn out to be true, but only if I applied it too heavily. If applied with a light hand, it actually has a very nice, natural, brightening blush look. I use it alone when I want a more natural, my face but better …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Don't Blow It (H)Air Styler

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Bumble and Bumble hair products just seem to work like magic on my hair, and there’s very few I’ve tried that I didn’t like.

For starters, I have thick, relatively healthy and uncoloured hair that is prone to an oily and itchy scalp. I love this product, it sinks right into my damp hair and I can feel it working straight away. My hair feels softer and smoother, and takes less time to …

Masks - innisfree - Pore Clearing Clay Mousse Mask with Super Volcanic Cluster

5.0

5 months ago

5 stars all across the board for this one. I’m a huge fan of the original jar version (my HG mask), so I couldn’t resist trying this.

Same as with the original, this mask is fantastic with acne and oil control. This clay mask is effective from mild acne to blackheads to cystic acne. Sometimes I even use it as a spot treatment overnight whenever I feel a particularly large cystic acne …
