Loose Powders - Tarte Cosmetics - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

Translucent setting powder that's easy to apply albeit slightly messy. I found that this didn't improve the wear time of my makeup and made my t-zone shinier faster while drying out my cheeks and forehead. I used this product for the last couple of years with better success and just recently had the above-mentioned problem. Maybe Tarte recently reformulated and I didn't realize?

Primer/ Corrector - bareMinerals - Prime Time Oil Control

Pure garbage. Actually increases your oil production and wreaks havoc on your face make-up. Please believe the other reviews (I didn't at first!) and stay away from this product. Reformulated or not, this does not do what it says.

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

1.0

Aug/11/2016

PROS:
Long-lasting, sheer-to-medium coverage with a plethora of color options to match most skin tones.

CONS:
Thick cream dries quickly making application difficult and unsuitable for buildable coverage. If your skin is dry or dehydrated, make a point of moisturizing beforehand or your dry patches will be highlighted for a chalky appearance.

CAUTION:
I have …

Treatments (Eye) - Ole Henriksen - Total Truth Vitamin C Eye Creme SPF 15

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2016

Ole's SPF eye cream is relatively moisturizing and keeps the eye area line free most of the day with a brightening effect from the Vitamin C. The glass jar exposes the product to light and air (plus bacteria from your fingers) which is terrible for product life and efficacy. Truth be told (ha), the product packaging needs a revamp, as does all the other products from his Truth line. Also …Read more

HG under-eye concealer for 3 years running. I shudder to think how much money I've spent on this product over the years, but then I think about the money I wasted trying all the other concealers out there and I let it go. This concealer is creamy, easy to apply, and offers buildable coverage. I used to think I wasn't getting enough coverage, but it turned out I was using a shade too …Read more

Skincare - Face - Ole Henriksen - Truth Serum Collagen Booster

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2010

PROS:
Smells great, absorbs rapidly, skin visibly looks brighter. Bottle top locks for travel.

CONS:
Truth serum is slightly sticky, but fades fast. Clear, glass bottle packaging offers zero protection against light exposure. $48 is expensive for 1.7oz considering the product does not offer much in the way of long-lasting results.

Treatments (Face) - Burt's Bees - Natural Acne Solutions - Targeted Spot Treatment

5.0

Jun/16/2010

My little miracle worker! Smells pleasant enough, doesn't sting, 100% natural and yet completely effective. Works very quickly to reduce breakouts. I recently started running on the treadmill and noticed some chest and back breakouts from sweating. I've been applying daily for a little under a week and things are pretty much back to normal! My only gripe is how small this bottle is for …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes

All About Eyes is a solid eye moisturizer. The formula is rich and hydrating. You do need to wait a couple of minutes before applying eye makeup to ensure there's no weird waxy residue. All About Eyes claims to diminish under eye circles, fine lines and moisturize the eye area. I agree with 2 out of the 3 claims. This is the first eye cream that has ever reduced the appearance of dark eye …Read more

Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

As far as cuticle creams go, this stuff works. I chew on my cuticles (yes, it's gross, I know) and have raggedy cuticles as a result. When my hands start looking particularly haggard, I apply this cream at night (sometimes for a few nights in a row) and I wake up to better looking skin. This seems to be the trend with all Burt's Bees products. Once you work the cream in, it's not …Read more

I love me some coconut and this product smells so yummy!! Interesting to note that you can actually eat any of the Burt's Bees products because they are natural, but I think I'll still pass. ;-) This is a thick, almost jelly like cream that is wonderously moisturizing for dry cracked heels. I love nothing more than to slather this on at night, don a pair of socks and then wake up to …Read more
