Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

Dec/20/2016

I find this to perform pretty similarly to Bioderma's Sensibio H2O. It has become my go-to micellar water, despite my initial hesitation to even try it, since drugstore skincare products often wreak havoc on my face. I know most people recommend this type of product for a first cleanse/makeup removal, but I use it as a second cleanse (after DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil) on my sensitive …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Physiological Micellar Solution

Feb/10/2016

This micellar water would rank right up there with Bioderma's and Marcelle's, in my book, if it didn't contain fragrance. For those with sensitive skin, there are better options.

PROS
- Cleans skin and removes makeup as well as other micellar waters.
- Pretty decent bottle/dispenser. (Bioderma's and Marcelle's are better, though, offering more control …

My favorite micellar water besides Marcelle's. (I've also tried Simple, Avene, La Roche-Posay, and Koh Gen Do.) I use it as my evening cleanser on days when I haven't worn makeup or sunscreen, and as a the second step of my double cleanse on days when I have, after washing with FAB's Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser. It's great used with Shiseido's cotton pads …Read more

Feb/10/2016

I've tried a number of micellar waters (Simple, Bioderma, Marcelle, Koh Gen Do, La Roche-Posay), and this was definitely the worst. Pick a different one!

PROS
- Cleans the skin and removes makeup as effectively as other micellar waters.

CONS
- Despite being marketed as appropriate for sensitive skin, this product is heavily fragranced...and it doesn't …

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Loreal Professionnel Sensi Balance

Feb/10/2016

My scalp (like the rest of my skin) has been growing more sensitive in recent years, so I've been searching for a gentle shampoo that will still manage oiliness without turning my hair to straw. The salesperson who steered me toward this product said she often recommends it to people with psoriasis and similar skin problems, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It was NOT a success, and I …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

4.0

Oct/03/2015

The most effective makeup remover for getting off waterproof mascara. I bought the larger 6.7 oz bottle after getting a deluxe sample from Sephora. I would give it five lippies if it were unscented and less expensive.

PROS
- Extremely effective for removing even long-wear eye makeup.
- Anything that can remove waterproof mascara is going to be oily, but at least this washes …

Cleansers - Koh Gen Do - Cleansing Spa Water

Oct/03/2015

I tried the 3.38 oz bottle to see whether this product would be worth the price tag. It lasted about a week, using it at night and on mornings I didn't shower (every other day). This allowed for a basic assessment of its performance compared to other micellar waters I've tried, but not for a good sense of how the botanical extracts would influence my skin over time. Overall I concluded …Read more

Oct/02/2015

I've been trying out a variety of micellar waters for cleansing my sensitive, acne-prone skin. So far this is my favorite, since it has the best packaging I've found for this type of product.

I use micellar water at night and on mornings when I don't shower, moderately soaking a cotton pad before I wipe it over my face. (Shiseido's Facial Cotton is soft and leaves …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Power Mascara

4.0

Jun/11/2015

The first day I wore this, I thought I had found my HG mascara. Now I'm less impressed, but I still think it has some strong features.

PROS
- The slim, slightly tapering brush with its short bristles is my favourite thing about this mascara. Sometimes I wish the wand were a little longer, but overall it's easy to maneuver; especially great for getting at the lashes at …

Effective even on my waterproof mascara, but it leaves my eyes a bit irritated. I've been using it for a couple weeks, but once my sample bottle is used up, I won't purchase this product.

PROS
- Removes even the most recalcitrant waterproof mascara. I was searching for something that would completely dissolve my Lancome Definicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara …
