I've bought this oil several times over the last 3 or 4 years and with each use, my opinion has changed and not for the better. When I first bought this oil, I was totally in love with it. The smell is herbal, but doesn't bother me and the packaging is absolutely lovely. This was the first oil I ever used and, given my oily and occasionally acne-prone skin, I was really impressed …Read more

I think "Meh" sums up this product pretty well. The packaging is great, but I think it is expensive for what you get in that you have to use several pumps in order to get properly clean in the shower and before you see any sort of semblance of foam or suds. I think this product lasted me around 3 weeks at most. The scent was a little odd to me as well, a mix of plastic and floral. My …Read more

This is a nice winter face cream that is thicker in consistency than Belif's moisturizing bomb. I enjoyed using this cream, and used it until the jar was empty, but feel ambivalent as to whether or not I would purchase it again. I have oily skin, and this was too heavy for me to use in the mornings underneath make up. I used this at night as the last step to my skin care routine. After …Read more

Geez Louise does this stuff stink! Wow (and this is a bad wow). I wouldn't mind it so much if I felt like this delivered actual results. I lingered on, staying persistent, slathering this stuff on my face hoping that diligence and consistency would buy me results (it didn't). I like the messaging behind Tata Harper and what they seem to stand for, but I can't get behind a …Read more

I don't think this product is the worst, but I also don't think it's very good. The directions say a "generous" amount, but I'm not exactly sure what that means. I played around with the amount that I put in my hair using more product and less product, but didn't really get the results I wanted. This stuff made my hair really dull and I think it emphasized …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

This is a solid foundation. It's neither sheer nor glowy. It's medium-leaning-more-to-full coverage. I have oily skin and regularly use a primer and setting powder. This foundation holds up quite well, even in warm weather. I do have some shine/oil peeking through by the late afternoon, but nothing that I don't experience with other foundations. I think it applies well with …Read more

I have thick, coarse, dark, Asian hair. I don't think this product does as good of a job as some of the staples out there like Batiste or Psssst. I also think that the white cast that this leaves is difficult to rub out. I also didn't think this product lasted for very long and I felt like I used the can up pretty quickly. It smells great (hence the 2 lippies), but not good enough …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Pixi - Makeup Fixing Mist

I think the effect you get from this mist depends on your foundation. With some foundations, this would set my makeup while offering a soft focus effect on my face with all the makeup looking nice and blended. With other foundations, this felt like a layer of shellac on my face. It would literally harden my foundation and I would find cracks (yes, cracks!), like my makeup was breaking. The …Read more

Masks - Caolion - Pore Minimizing Pack

I think this product does temporarily minimize your pores, but I also felt like my face was being being attacked. The cooling/tingling sensation is *very* intense. My husband even said I looked visibly uncomfortable while using this product. I think I'd rather use other products that get similar effects without feeling like I have to punish my face to do it.

I hate, hate, hate this product. I hate it so much I actually returned it (I very rarely return anything, even if I don’t like it). I hate it so much that even though I had used up almost half of the product, I braved the scorn from the Sephora rep at the counter to return this product. I initially received a sample of this and initially thought I liked it, so I purchased a full sized tube of …Read more
