Moisturizers - Now Foods - NOW Solutions 100% Natural Shea Butter

As a facial moisturizer straight out of tub, it had a very thick, creamy consistency that felt very occlusive on the skin, and no surprise, clogged my skin badly. 1/5 stars, if even that.

I bought my jar from Whole Foods so freshness was guaranteed. I live in Southern Louisiana so the consistency wasn't chalky, just a very thick cream. I tried it as a facial moisturizer, I tried …

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence

I hate this stuff. It caused closed comedones allover my face. What was more upsetting were the comedones that appeared in places that I don't normally get pimples, like my forehead and t-zone area. There is something in this product that my skin did not like. My derm has not diagnosed me with fungal acne before, but I've had atopic dermatitis on my face a few times in the past, which …Read more

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Flawless Concealer Brush

This is my favorite concealer brush that I own and I've bought 4. I've tried various ones from Sephora, MAC, and Shiseido, and I've tried different shapes of brushes. This brush just works for me. This fluffy, dense, rounded concealer brush from ELF feathers out my blemish concealer nicely, be it cream or liquid formulas. It avoids the cakey look. I don't usually use this for …Read more

Eye Primer - Etude House - Proof 10 Eye Primer

This is my favorite eyelid primer since it keeps my eye makeup budgeproof all day, it's affordable, spreads easily, doesn't irritate my lids, and it doesn't dry out or emphasize the dryness of my lids. I've tried L'Oreal, NYX, Milani, Wet N' Wild, Urban Decay, and Too Faced. The Urban Decay one had a much more tackier consistency, which my eyelids couldn't …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream

After 3 months of use, I've decided that it's just an an average salicylic acid cleanser that has a tendency to dry out my skin. It's not worth the price tag and I can find something better, more effective, for a fraction of the price. My favorite BHA cleanser for oily skin during the summertime is Alba Botanica Acnedote Deep Pore Wash with 2% SA.

Skincare - Face - Pond's - Clear Cold Cream

9 months ago

After 2 months of use and switching to another product, I realized that the Pond's Cold Cream ("Clear" Version from Japan) was what was breaking me out. I was using Neutrogena Makeup Wipes to wipe off the cream cleanser; I also tried a muslin cloth, face cloth, and just water. I double cleansed with a foaming cleanser every time. It just didn't help. I was getting more and …Read more

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer

2.0

9 months ago

This is the best full coverage concealer on the market, however it broke me out. It has a thick, creamy consistency that covers imperfections amazingly and it lasts all day; perfect for spot concealing but not for covering large areas. The squeeze tube becomes faulty after a while and doesn't close effectively, so the product dries out. I've moved on to other concealers since I found …Read more

5/5 HG cleanser for the summer!
My skin: oily during the summertime, acne-prone, age 29, humid Southern Louisiana. This has been my favorite cleanser for the past 3 years. I've tried many cleansers from all over (low-end, high-end, US, Korean, Japanese, etc) and I always go back to this one because of the difference it makes on the clarity of my skin. I use a milder cleanser for the …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Ultra Light Cleansing Oil

5.0

Dec/28/2015

5/5 for price, availability, and effectiveness. This is the cheapest cleansing oil available in the US and it effectively cleanses off all waterproof face makeup and sunscreen. Cleanses off most eye makeup but not all, however I use a separate remover for my eyes. This is my go-to for a US drugstore cleansing oil. It's readily available at drugstores and supermarkets, I get mine at …Read more

(Overall: 5, Price: 5, Packaging: 5, Repurchase: Yes)

I am shocked with the reviews here. I actually really like this eye cream and am considering getting the full-sized bottle (I've been using tiny amounts from a deluxe sample for the past few months, lol). It's awfully expensive, but it is by far the best eye cream I've used so far (Bobbi Brown, Shiseido The Skincare …
