Sunscreen - Neostrata - DEFEND Sheer Physical Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50

5.0

Yesterday

This is an ideal sunscreen for those who are looking for a slight sheer tint (which does not cast white on skin like some sunscreens do). This is ideal for normal to dry skin I would say, it is a bit hydrating, although any skin type could use it. SPF 50 is also great to have for high sun protection. It is fragrance free, has a matte finish, and it doesn't pill or break out on my skin.

Treatments (Face) - Neostrata - Glycolic Renewal Smoothing Cream 10% Glycolic Acid

Yesterday

This is a great moisturizer! It is very effective at sloughing off dead skin cells and giving a radiant glow. This is due to the 10% AHA's found in the product. I don;'t use it every day (I usually alternate between this and as well as their anti-aging peel). When I use this I can't help but keep touching my face, it feels so smooth! One caution is to make sure you wear sunscreen …Read more

Fragrance - Dior - Dior Homme EDT (2020)

This is an average men's fragrance. It is pleasing for either the office or going out, but generic in my opinion. It starts out citrus like and has a woody vetiver base. It is long lasting, but more of a skin scent. It has Iso E Super which smells like dry, woody and cedar-like, notes including vetiver and patchouli. It is a generic note found in a lot of current men's fragrances …Read more

This is a wonderful scent for men that is different from the popular "blue" scents for men from recent years. It is more masculine and traditional. Top notes are Calabrian bergamot, pine, and juniper. The heart has spicy notes of Jamaican pepper, fir resins and clary sage. Base notes labdanum, leather and patchouli. Another plus is that it isn't more expensive than offering from …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

Overall this moisturizer misses the mark on a lot of different features.First I will write about what I do like about this product. It has a nice texture and melts into my skin. There is no fragrance (which is important to me). Unfortunately there are lots of reasons I do not like this product. For example, it is in a jar, which is unsanitary and allows the ingredients to degrade easier over …Read more

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel

2 months ago

My skin is oily but sensitive. I really like the texture of this product, it is a gel but feels a bit like a primer. It is very gentle and doesn't dry out my skin. It balances out the oiliness of my skin without stripping it of moisture. Also, I have never broke out from using this product. This moisturizer is one I repurchase again and again. It's hard to find a good moisturizer for …Read more

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral Complex SPF 30

I want to like this, as it has a high SPF and is good for sensitive skin. I like Paula's products, as you can use the sunscreen day creams around your eyes. This stung though when I applied it under my eyes. The scent is unpleasant (even though it is not fragrance, but the ingredients themselves). It also left a white cast on my skin. Paula has better options for sunscreen/day creams than …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - REVERSA Urban Protection Hydrating Care SPF 30

This is an exceptional sunscreen from Reversa (a Canadian brand). It has a slight tint and good sun protection. I like that the bit of tint acts like a light tinted moisturizer. Other sunscreens can leave a white cast, so this is a plus. It's hydrating enough to use on it's own, but I still prefer to put it on top of my regular moisturizer. This sunscreen helps protect skin again sun …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - 154 Cologne

5.0

3 months ago

I really like this "cologne" from Jo Malone. It's unisex, but it leans towards the masculine side (I am a man myself). It has mandarin, grapefruit, lavender, basil, nutmeg and vetiver. It is fresh but has a woody under current. It reminds me a bit of pencil shavings (not a bad thing).

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Insolence Eau de Parfum

3 months ago

This is a unique offering from Guerlain. I prefer this over the EDT version. This came out after, and it is more intimate and smoother than it's sister. The notes are similar, but this has a irreverence to it. It is unapologetic. This is my favorite of current Guerlain offerings (I am not a fan of Le Petite Robe Noire and its flankers). Even though this is softer than the EDT, it is still a …Read more
