The most biased cosmetic review site on the internet.

All of Paula's Choice products are 5-stars. Many of the competitors products are not.

The credibility has gone down the drain since Paula' Begeoun started selling her own products. Beautypedia would say things like "don't be fooled by the fancy name" of the competitor's product and then they …

Sunscreen - Avene - Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion Face SPF 50+

It's a nice and light sunscreen. The solution spreads easily, however, you have to make sure that you pat or apply thoroughly to prevent white streaks.

My skin looks brighter after application, perhaps a hint of the sunscreen. I don't seem to notice it after a while.

Cleaning needs to be more thorough, I usually have to wash twice to completely remove the …

Scrubs - Paula's Choice - The Unscrub

Oh dear! What is this product that I bought? Couldn't figure if it's supposed to be a cleanser or a scrub or something else.

I don't think Paula's Choice is a company that creates innovative products unlike more well known and respected companies out there.

I sometimes feel like their products are high school science projects. They think they made a good …

Gels/ Soaps - Dove - Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash

This body wash cleanses well but it has a strong perfume. Scent has no place in cosmetics, they only bring about allergies and assault the senses.

This is a cream type product and sometimes it's difficult to get all the product out.

I have mixed feelings about this body wash.

An underwhelming serum that can't do what it promises.

Another gimmicky product from Paula's Choice. I just don't get it, what happened to Paula Begoun? Why is she creating subpar products like this?

The product has a sticky feel that goes away depending on the humidity of your environment but it does not deliver what it promises. Why is that? Because this …

Beware of potential FAT LOSS on your FACE!

Red Light Therapy has been promoted for both skin health and at the same time fat loss using the same wavelength.

While you may think that red light therapy have no side effects, be wary of the possible volume loss on the face.

Joovv doesn't show reviews if they are negative on their website - seems to be their …

A useless product that only caused breakouts.

Aminogensis based their entire business on amino acids. On their product page, they cited studies that DO NOT support their claims.

Aside from hydration, there are NO studies (including those cited on their websites) that support the TOPICAL application of amino acids for collagen synthesis or other anti-aging …

This is a great moisturizing and healing product.

It can also be used on non-lip areas. I recently got a cut on my finger while on the road and I applied the lip cream together with some Avene Thermal Spring Water mist and within a few hours, the wound healed.

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Oily Skin

Oct/03/2018

This product is good on paper and has well rounded reviews from different sources.

Personally, I got rashes from using this cleanser. My cheeks would get very itchy after using this. I was so disappointed that this didn't work for me.

I don't know the ingredient(s) that caused this and this led me to believe that this cleanser has not been dermatologist tested in a …
