Masks - ORIGINS - Hello, Calm! Relaxing & Hydrating Face Mask with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil

5.0

8 months ago

Already on my second tube of this wonderful mask, and Origins isn't particularly stingy with their product. I love this mask so much -- the scent is really calming and lovely and you can just slather it on your face and leave it on forever and then massage the remaining mask in, which makes it quite low maintenance. I can just cover my face in green goop at the end of a long day and not get …Read more

Masks - ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

This is one of my fave fave fave charcoal masks. It is simple and lovely and not harsh but will suck all the gross face stuff right up to the surface. When I have angry blemishes (I get whiteheads), I slather this on for ten minutes, wash off and follow up with a soothing mask or treatment (my go-tos for that are the Origins cannabis mask, Imselene's donkey milk mask, or Desitin). The …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Honeyskin Aloe Vera + Manuka Honey Ultimate Face and Body Cream

This cream is wonderful; I highly recommend it. I have not tried it as a face cream, just as a body cream, but have found it to be excellent. This summer a smattering of psoriasis popped up across my shoulder blades and would not retreat until I started regularly slathering it with this lovely cream. The psoriasis (I had a form known as guttate psoriasis) quickly faded and then disappeared and …Read more

Lip Treatments - TokyoMilk - Lip Elixir in Cherry Bourbon

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2017

First of all, I gave this five lipsticks but it actually narrowly avoided something more like a 2 or a 3 lipstick score. When you order cherry bourbon lip balm in a cool black tin you expect some sort of goth cowboy sexy scent and honestly this smells like regular cherry vaseline. So I was not thrilled. But then I put it on my mouth and damn if this cherry chapstick-smelling tub of fake cool …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Ouai Haircare Wave Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2017

This spray is the taters. A very reputable listicle told me that Harry Styles uses this on his hair and after testing it out I'm inclined to think he actually might. It's boy band hair in a spritz bottle. It even works on dry hair and you basically just have to mist it around your head and muss your hair a little with your hands. It keeps your hair softly in place, rather than crunchily …Read more

Eyeliner - Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/16/2017

I just *stomps foot* wanted this eyeliner to turn out. I bought it in olive and I love the color. Olive is a generally underrated makeup shade and ought to be more widely available and I was so pleased to find a lovely liquid liner pen in such a spot-on shade. The pen itself is great and the liner goes on well, but it doesn't stay all day. Or even most of the day. Not for me anyway. I have …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Liquid Lipstick - Amulet

4.0

*air horn noise* UD's Vice is the only liquid lipstick I can honestly be bothered with and Amulet is a very flattering brick rose--walking the line between vampy and classy. I like layering it with other lipsticks; it blends quite well.

Liquid - BECCA - Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

5.0

Apr/06/2017

I adore this foundation. It's buildable and truly radiant. It blends well with concealers, bronzers, blushes. The porcelain is a solid neutral-toned color match for my fair skin. I think oilier skins would find this a bit shiny, but this is a genuine holy grail foundation for dry skins. I like the packaging. The pump/dropper combo is a bit ungainly, but avoids the pitfalls like gunkiness …Read more

Masks - Unlisted Brand - Imselene - Donkey Milk Holic Sleeping Mask Pack

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2017

This stuff is honestly the best thing that's happened to my face in three years. I'm doing that very millennial thing where I have a ton of acne because a quarter life crisis is not enough. A lot of mine comes from, I believe, a confluence of stress and allergies, and is accompanied by dry rather than oily skin. In the time I've been battling pimples, and the pink hyperpigmentation …Read more

BB Cream - Dr. Jart+ - Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2017

I use this as a concealer. It's quite opaque and settles into the skin with a natural sheen, neither dewy nor matte, and kind of adjusts its color a bit as it settles. I received a sample in my Birchbox subscription and found it was excellent for covering up the persistent hyperpigmentation on my chin that likes to radiate through even my fullest coverage foundations. It's got a cool …Read more
