Polishes - Essie - Gel in Sew Excited

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2014

I'm glad that Essie is making gel polishes, and I definitely plan on continuing to buy them because of the unique & beautiful colors, but so far my experience with their gels has not been as good as my experience with OPI and CND. Sew Excited is a medium grey-green, a dupe of Rescue Beauty Lounge's Diddy Mow, and it is an absolutely gorgeous color. Unfortunately, it started to chip …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - nailuv gel polish

Oct/13/2014

Over the last couple of years, I've tried as many gel brands as I can get my hands on. I started with Sephora's WAY over-priced gelshine kit (save your money - get the Red Carpet Manicure or Gelish sets) and have expanded out from there. I was really curious about Nailuv, which was carried by Nordstrom. My experience has been that Nordstrom really carries good quality products and …Read more

Over the last couple of years, I've become obsessed with gels. Normally, my manicures chip within the first day, but a gel manicure can last a week on me. I still wear my old favorite polishes (my collection of Rescue Beauty Lounge keeps on growing - I'm working on my gel sandwich technique!) but I've added a bunch of different gels to my collection as well. I was really excited …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2014

This was the first Retinol product from Paula's Choice that I tried and I really liked it. Using Paula's Choice products really changed my skin for the better. My hyper pigmentation has faded so that I can use tinted moisturizer rather than full coverage foundation to even out my skin tone. I'm currently using the RESIST retinol treatment but I want to try the new retinol …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA

5.0

Oct/10/2014

When I first started using Paula's Choice products, I bought the 8% AHA Gel but I found it pilled really badly so I ended up returning it and getting this instead. I'm really happy with this product. Since switching to Paula's Choice products I've been able to downgrade from full coverage foundation to tinted moisturizer because my hyper pigmentation has cleared up so much! I …Read more

After struggling with the 8% AHA gel, I switched to a combination of the RESIST Daily 5% AHA with this and I am MUCH happier! I'm really happy with my skin texture since I switched to Paula's Choice products. I used to have to wear full coverage foundation for my hyper pigmentation but now I can wear tinted moisturizer!

ARGH!! So I actually LOVE the product. Since I've started using Paula's Choice products I've noticed an improvement in my overall skin tone but specifically I've noticed a lightening of my hyper pigmentation. I no longer have to use full coverage foundation - I can get away with tinted moisturizer! Definitely, this retinol serum is part of that. Yet I marked that I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST C15 Super Booster

Oct/10/2014

I love this product! Since I started using Paula's Choice products, my hyper pigmentation has decreased to the point that I can cover it with tinted moisturizer rather than full coverage foundation. I can't single out a specific product, since I bought several at the same time but I'm sure the C15 worked! I find it's easier to use when mixed with one of her serums. I mix 4 …Read more

Sep/30/2014

I got a free sample of this and I really like it for my dry skin, particularly in winter. It's very soothing and it doesn't irritate with fragrances or unnecessary ingredients. However, it's so rich that it can give me blackheads or break me out, so I have to be careful about where I put it. I'm subtracting a lippie for that and for the price. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is …Read more
