Deodorants - Donna Karan - Cashmere Mist Deodorant

I don't remember how I first came to try this, but I love it. I really do look for wetness control, not just odor control, and this one delivers. (Also, it smells nice until I go to bed at night).

I like the packaging, screw on top, but I've learned: don't be too aggressive in applying the product under your arms. If too much of it ends up on the sides of the tube …

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - CC+ Cream Illumination SPF50+

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I initially bought the non-illuminating (regular) version in Light, and it was great but a little too dark. When I went back to the store, I saw this Illumination (Sparkly) version - and also that it came in Fair. Truthfully, I should have bought Sparkly Light, or Regular Fair, because Sparkly Fair is a little too light. But it's fine; it's also fairly sheer and I've almost …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Burt's Bees - Eye Makeup Remover Pads

I may be the only one who likes these, but damn I get so frustrated with other eye makeup removers stinging my eyes! Burt's Bees does not sting. Very nice bees. I don't wear a lot of eye makeup (just a lot of mascara) and I can use one or maybe two of these pads to remove that - I can even swipe around the rest of my face and get most or all of my other makeup off. I usually rinse …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Nip + Fab - Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads

I've repurchased these several times already. I think exfoliation is KEY to keeping your skin looking nice, and these provide gentle peeling on a daily or twice-weekly basis (whatever works for you). It's better to work your way up in frequency, as with any acid or exfoliating product.

They're pretty reasonably priced at about $12-13. I may end up shifting over to …

I'm sorry I had to say I wouldn't buy this again. Because I think it's a great product - sinks in and has great ingredients, did not feel greasy, etc. And it's cheap as dirt!

But the smell. I cannot deal with it. It is very faint, but it does not fade fast enough and I just cannot. Still, I'm going to try using it on my chest or arms or something because …

Blush - wet n wild - ColorIcon Blush - Pearlescent Pink

Sep/08/2018

Go buy this! It's so cheap and so pretty! It's also super-pigmented, which makes a teensy bit difficult for me to use (clown cheeks are a real struggle, friends).

It's warm and very flattering. It does not change color over time. It does not appear to disappear quickly. I've been using it in the summertime, but I have no doubt that it's a year-round …

Foundations - Physicians Formula - The Healthy Foundation SPF 20

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2018

I was lucky to wander into a closing Rite Aid, so of course I took the opportunity to try EVERYTHING since it was like 60% off. This foundation is ordinarily about $16, so not totally outside my price range, especially with coupons and sales.

The packaging! It is a big honking heavy beautiful glass bottle. Looks like Dior. Absolutely travel-unfriendly.

I did not expect a …

Lip Gloss - Burt's Bees - 100% Natural Lip Gloss (All Colors)

4.0

I have one of these in Sunny Day, and I like it a lot. The color is kind of peachy with gold micro glitter, but it comes off as more colorless with shimmer. I bought it at Cracker Barrel, of all places, but it's sold in plenty of regular drugstores.

I do kind of get what another reviewer pointed out - that it seems like you have to dip from the tube several times per …

Mascara - Arbonne - It's A Long Story Mascara

4.0

Jul/21/2018

I also got a sample of this mascara (generous sample) and I think it's wonderful. Really gives me long, dark lashes with lots of volume. No clumps, no smudging - as long as I don't use it on my lower lashes, which would be really difficult anyway with the large brush!

Non-irritating formula, which I like. But, the price. This is just way more than I am willing to spend on …

Skincare - Face - CeraVe - Hydrating Micellar Water

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2018

I bought this because I love all CeraVe products and I assumed I would love this one, too! It costs a little bit more than the other micellar waters at the drugstore, but at least it's readily available and reasonably priced.

And it's a pretty effective cleanser! Gets all the makeup off just fine. But HOLY CATS does it burn the eyes! And look, if I'm using something …
