Cleansers - Weleda - Almond Cleansing Lotion

Hoped this could replace my beloved Earth Science A-D-E fruit oil cleanser, which WF stopped carrying, but the price is crazy for what you get. I had to use A LOT per wash to cover my skin; very watery. Didn't feel much different than rinsing with water.

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - RESIST Intensive Repair Cream

It moisturizes well for the first couple weeks, but so does anything with petrolatum in it. After that, my pores just start to clog. The retinol didn't seem to make a difference. I'll just have to keep looking for a dry skin cream without petroleum products. Bummer!

Concealers - COVER FX - Blemish Treatment Concealer

Not buildable at all, which wouldn't be a problem if it provided coverage for anything other than completely flat, completely smooth discolorations.

Will not stay put--not over foundation or under it, with or without setting powder, or with primer and setting spray.

Had no discernable effect on my blemishes except to leave a halo of product around each spot.

Super …

Liquid - COVER FX - Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation

The only pro of this foundation is that the coverage is decent--it hides a lot of acne scarring with no need for concealer.

Otherwise, this is a disaster. Transfers onto everything, even with primer, setting powder, and setting spray! Settles into every invisible fine line and crease despite buffing and sponging. I've even gone over problem areas with a cotton swab to remove …

Deodorants - Lavanila - The Healthy Deodorant

I am a veteran of vegan deodorants, being both vegan and extremely sweaty. I have yet to find something vegan that gets me through the day with zero odor, and this is no exception.

I tried the travel size, since the full size is laughably expensive for something untested. I might as well have worn nothing. I could smell myself by hour two at my desk job. Not even heavy-duty sweating! …

Moisturizers - Earth Science - Apricot Intensive Night Creme

4.0

Sep/11/2016

I've been using this at night for over three years. Moving back to New England winters after ten years turned my face into a sad dry desert, and I tried a number of other vegan moisturizers before settling on this. It's rich and nourishing--I put it on at night, and I don't wake up with flakies anywhere. It keeps the skin around my nostrils from cracking in the winter weather, but …Read more

Skincare - Face - Boscia - Clear Complexion Treatment with Botanical Blast

After two months of daily use, this stuff did literally nothing to my skin. Not a thing. Definitely did not do anything to improve my breakout-prone dry skin. It also didn't irritate me, didn't dry me out, and didn't make me more oily. GHOST PRODUCT.

The packaging is great--hygienic and presumably keeps the product fresher longer. That's the only positive thing I …

Beautiful in the bottle, will not dry on my nails regardless of the base coat or top coat I use, whether I use one thin layer or several layers. I basically can't wear this at all, which is super annoying for something so expensive.
