21 days ago

Note: the product I'm reviewing is called "The Face Shop White Pearl Smart Peeling Gel". There is no "Peeling Day" in the title. I think, but am not certain, it's the same product with either older or newer packaging. (??)

PROS:
- Gentle (so long as you don't overdo it)
- Skin definitely feels smoother after use
- Works great on dry flakey …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Rose Velvet

This looks so pretty in the tube and I like the formula. However it didn't work with my undertones . I wish I had looked at more swatches in different lighting with different skin tones online before I bought this. Was looking for a MLBB shade (my natural color is muted red/rose) with just tiny a hint of brown because *too much or too bright* pink clashes/looks gharish with my light(ish) …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30 in Silicone

For some reason my skin didn't like this...
I don't have particularly sensitive skin. I like and use many TO products but I just can't get this one to work for me. First of all this disappates quickly so it's hard for me to apply a small amount, which may mean that I'm applying too much ( I'm not sure how other people are able to spread a small amount). It …

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

Love this. Just purchased my 2nd bottle--the first one lasted me a good 6 months with regular nightly use for a good 4 months. Balances my combo/ oily / dry / acne prone skin well. I now use between 2-5 drops about 5-7x a week at night. I use it to top off TOs AHA or Lactic Acid 10%. When I'm not using actives, I use it on bare skin or to top off a (light) moisturizer. I rarely use this …Read more

Cleansers - The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser

3.0

Summary:
- Poised between 3 and 4 stars (would repurchase? Idk)
- Wonderful for non-stripping, gentle, fragrance -free cleansing (am) when I'm just putting oil and/or sunscreen on top
- Does leave a slight film (oil) on skin which is great for avoiding water evaporation, but not so great if I want to use it before with certain water loving products /ingredients such as HA or …

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Superior Preference Fade-Defying Color + Shine Hair Color - Ultra Light Ash Brown (UL61)

2.0

I bought UL61 high lift Ash Brown from the "Sunkissed Caramels" line. It claims to be designed to "lighten the darkest hair". This box says it's an ash tone so I expected little to no red/orange brassiness. For starters, this did not lighten my ("virgin" aka not previously dyed or processed) dark brown hair even close to what the box depicts (I left it on for 30 …Read more

Hair Color - REVLON - Colorsilk Hair Color - Dark Brown

Update ( 1 month later): Eh. So after a few washes I did notice some red tones and the deep brown pigment that had initially seemed to cover my grey areas lifted off somewhat. So it did not work as well as the Feria (or whatever it was, I wish I could remember) I used to cover grey a couple years ago, but at least it's not too orange or anything. I will probably use up the rest of this …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Lid Lingerie

4.0

7 months ago

I'm not a fan of powder eyeshadow, especially not metallic powder eyeshadow, so I really like this. I got the shade Rose Pearl, which has a bit of shimmer. It looks like a much lighter pink on my skin than it does in the tube (unfortunately). I use a bit of this for a (sheer-ish) wash of color. It goes on, and, more importantly, dries down to very smooth satin shimmer, without that crepe-y …Read more

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Photogenic Concealer

7 months ago

Update: Lowering from 3 to 2 stars bc I did follow up and try this as a spot concealer on bare skin for PIE marks and it looks terrible on me. Not very natural looking (doesn't melt in, just kind of sits on my skin looking kind of dry/chalky).

In short: color/shade was almost spot on for my skin but it's too dry-looking for my under eyes, though it might work well for spot …
