Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Skin Aqua - UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50+PA++++

This is a lovely sunscreen, but it didn’t work out for me. The mineral ingredients cause me to itch above my upper lip (weird, right?). But it’s lightweight, dries to a satin finish, and has excellent protection. I definitely would recommend it if mineral sunscreens don’t bother your skin.

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Ultrasun very high 50+SPF ultra sensitive extreme formula

What a great finish! Too bad it gave me cystic acne. Of all the European sunscreens I’ve tried, this was the least sticky, shiny and heavy. It still felt a bit heavy, but nothing major. I was thrilled with it until I realized it was causing the deep, red, throbbing zits all over my face. It’s 2 months later and my skin is finally calming down. Great stuff if you’re not very acne prone, especially …Read more

Can’t believe there aren’t more reviews for this. The CeraVe knockoff does everything the brand name does plus it’s cheaper - moisturizes, doesn’t feel heavy, doesn’t clog my finicky skin. I switched to Aveeno to see if the grass is greener over there, but my skin started peeling again (Retin A effects). In fact, I like this better than the original. Definitely worth a try if you like the brand …Read more

This is a miracle for me. I have genetically weak, peeling nails, especially after two rounds of Accutane a few years ago, and I’ve tried all manner of strengtheners/hardeners for my nails. This is the ONLY item that’s lived up to its promises. My nails aren’t peeling at all, and in the month I’ve used it, only one nail has broken. I use it as directed - a layer of Xtra, two layers of nail …Read more

Lip Treatments - Alba Botanica - Coconut Cream Lip Balm

This lipbalmoholic has found her match. This goes on thick, slightly waxy but more buttery, and moisturizes lips wonderfully. The coconut flavor is divine, though over time it fades unfortunately. It feels so good on my lips that I keep pressing them together which leads to me having to reapply often. I don't fault the formula, rather my own behavior. At any rate, I've purchased this …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

Sep/04/2017

This stuff is perfect for the peeling areas of my face (nostrils, chin). I use it multiple times a day while I'm at work and it's never broken me out. The texture is creamy and it feels rather heavy on the skin, so I'm not sure how this would be when used all over the face. It's soothing and stops my peeling at least temporarily, which is better than any other cream or …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - The Gentle Sulfate Free Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2017

Using this for the past month or so, I can safely say that it's the best gentle cleanser for my sensitive acne-prone, eczema-prone skin. It doesn't dry me out, and in fact my skin feels soft and balanced afterward. It's cheap, widely available, and sulfate-free. I'd recommend this to everyone but the really dry, as it does foam up pretty well. I can't comment on its …Read more

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Glow Longwear Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2017

This is a YSBB (your skin but better) powder. Don't expect full coverage, as this has light coverage and leaves a glow that's akin to bare skin. I love it because it evens out my skin tone - reduces redness and freckles - but yet looks like nothing at all on my face. It doesn't cake up my on my oily or dryer areas when I press the powder into my skin with the accompanying flat …Read more

Sep/03/2017

Absolutely HG material for me! I've been using this side by side with Too Faced Better Than Sex waterproof and honestly, I don't see a difference aside from the price. No smudging, no collection of flakes under my eyes during the day, no complaints there. It makes my lashes look beautifully black and long, though it doesn't volumize much, but that's not really what I'm …Read more
