I love Cerave's plain lotion so I thought this would be great. What a mistake! After a few weeks I developed dry, scaly skin, especially under my eyes, that took forever to go away. My cheeks and forehead were flaky and so sensitive. It also made my chest break out, seemingly within minutes, and gave me a rash on my neck. I am used to being able to put just about anything on my skin - …Read more
This is the best sunscreen I've found for winter use. It is very light, doesn't ball up, isn't sticky and makes a great base for make-up, all of which surprised me. The PPD is only 10 so I would not wear this if I was spending a lot of time outside or in the summer but it's perfect for everything else.
I love this sunscreen and I completely understand why a lot of people dislike it. It is thick and oily and leaves a whitish cast. This is great for my dry, pale skin; apparently "sickly white" matches my skin tone perfectly, makes it look smooth and glowing and my make-up applies well over it. Although I am prone to spots, this does not break me out at all. However, because it …Read more
Packaging: I love the way the bottle looks. It's beautiful! Unfortunately, because it's a hard bottle that you must pour the lotion out of, it's kind of hassle to get the right amount and I imagine that it will be hard to get any out when it starts to run low.
Product: It smells and looks nice and, well, expensive. Which it is!
Use: It feels great …Read more
I love this cream. It sinks into my skin so well, helped clear up the tiny bumps I had on my forehead and temples and makes my face glow. I noticed a slight tingling as can be expected and it does seem to 'lift' my face a bit, which isn't an issue for me yet since I am young, but I will probably appreciate this in a few years. However, it isn't very moisturizing so I …Read more
The version of this that I bought in the UK was okay. It moisturized a bit, provided SPF and didn't irritate my skin or cause breakouts. However, the version I bought in the US didn't moisturize as well and seemed to just sit on top of my skin without sinking in. Since discontinuing use, I've noticed that the small bumps by my hairline have gone away and I'm guessing …Read more
I found SJG to be a great, gentle cleanser that does a great job at removing make-up and softening my skin. It's too labour-intensive for me to use regularly (have to remove with a warm facecloth, follow up with toner), but when I do use it it's great, especially in the winter when I tend to get dry. It caused no breakouts and I love the smell.
MoM is amazing! It was the first mask I tried from Lush and prior to that I'd never seen a mask actually do anything. First, MoM smells amazing, just like chocolate chip ice cream. It immediately cools my skin and makes it feel a bit tingly. After I wash it off, it leaves my skin looking healthy, glowy and much more even-toned. It also helps tremendously with breakouts and makes …Read more
I love this moisturizer. It is very heavy, so you only need a tiny bit and I've found that it never seems to entirely absorb into the skin. However, I only use it at night so it doesn't matter if it makes my skin look like a shiny mess. It hydrates so well, doesn't break me out at all despite how heavy it is, completely cleared up my dry patches and it smells delicious. …Read more
