Treatments (Eye) - Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Swirl Advanced Anti-Aging Treat

2.0

Like another reviewer I found that this balled up and rolled off if used with other products. As it has a shimmer effect, it seems made to use with or under moisurizers / makeup during the day. As it doesn't "play well with others" I will not repurchase as I don't need a night eye cream with added mica etc. Pump packaging - no complaints. Kind of pricey for what it is …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer

5.0

Wow, I love this stuff. Great as an alternative to foundation - I can just do a little concealer here and there and then blush, eyebrows, mascara, lips. Gives a glow without looking greasy. Good color match for my fair skin. Bottle is handy size, nice to look at, pump works well. I don't really think of this as a straight-up primer; to me that's a bit more silicone-y or thicker …Read more

Scrubs - YourGoodSkin - Energizing Facial Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

While 'energizing' might be taking it a bit too far, I really do like this scrub. Not terribly expensive, so good value for money. I like the cream cleanser base that the scrub particles are in. It's a product that can do double duty as a cleanser and scrub and doesn't leave my face dried out. Scrub particles rinse away without too much trouble. Tube packaging is decent - …Read more

Masks - CLINIQUE - City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask & Scrub

3.0

2 months ago

Got this due to the good reviews from Paula. It's a blue clay mask that becomes a scrub when rinsed. Comes in a tube which is convenient. A bit expensive for a mask/scrub. I will not be repurchasing because although it does its thing as a mask/scrub, the silica grains are extremely hard to clean off unless used in shower. Trying to get them off with a wash cloth is a never-ending battle.

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer

Jan/11/2019

As others have said, this is a bit of an odd product. I think it does work well as a moisturiser and it does mattify things a bit so makeup goes on well.

As I prefer using a combo moisturiser/spf product during the day, I only use this in a very specific instance. I live where it gets dark quite early in the winter and often get out of the gym/shower after dark. However, my day …

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - Superdefense Age Defense Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20

4.0

Sep/08/2018

I gave this 4 stars because it does work as a sunscreen for the eye area. But it is very very white and takes a bit to sink in. And is not as moisturising as other eye creams, so seems a bit of a one-trick-pony. The trick it does is very good, but I don't really need a single purpose eye sunscreen. Mostly only use it for travel to very sunny/glaring places - desert or snow, rather than using …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DHC - Renewing AHA Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2018

I tried a bottle of this as I was curious about the lactic acid. I think it did make my skin softer, but I didn't notice much in the way of evening out tone or brightening. It does have a strong odor and it does sting, especially around my hairline, which probably meant I wasn't as diligent in my use as I should be. Texture sinks in well and bottle keeps everything air-tight. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/06/2018

I mostly used this as an antioxidant serum under other moisturiser/sunscreen. It is quite light as a moisturiser by itself and is not enough hydration for me. A clear gel, it does have a slightly tacky finish which was okay for me as I was layering under other items and it did not pill. In fact, my face feels a bit tight after this dries, which I don't like that much. I think like another …Read more

Conditioner - Charles Worthington - Moisture Seal Leave-in

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/07/2018

I had used another Worthington leave-in conditioner that I really liked, but couldn't find it anymore. So I got this version and it's not as good. The moisture seal version has a strong perfume-y scent and doesn't do much as far as detangling. It also gunks up near the tube opening with dried bits like rubber cement. Price is cheap enough and tube is handy packaging, but …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2018

I use a couple other Cerave products like the night cream and have had no problems. I saw their eye cream and the price was right, so I thought I'd try it. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Certainly not enough to repurchase.

Tube packaging is nice. Odourless white cream that sinks in okay. Doesn't cause me irritation, but although the ingredients have …
