I picked this up atl Walgreens, because i couldn't find the wet & wild photo focus that I've been loving, and this shade (07) looked like a really good match for my skin. I've been using it for about 2 weeks, and for a random purchase with no real expectations, I've been very pleasantly surprised. The texture is medium/ thin which allows me to cover my face with one …Read more

i received a sample from Sephora, and am on the fence about purchasing. i think we all know the negative, so lets dispense with that right away: SEVENTY FREAKING DOLLARS!!!
ok, that's out of my system.
the mask starts as a pearly cream, and applies smoothly in a thin layer. I loved the scent, but it IS heavily fragrances, so know that going in. if you like pina coladas.. …

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

last year, i bought a knock off version of the beautyblender at H&M; it was ok, but I didn't get what all of the fuss was about. sometimes I'd use it, sometimes I'd forget, meh- whatever. eventually, as blenders do, it shat the bed. dampened, squeezed and it stayed a squeezed little mush ball. so I thought "well, maybe now I'll break down and buy the real …Read more

NOTE -i tried to edit this review, but my phone won't let me get to the bottom of it - so, how I meant to end it was to say that there are a million clay masks out there, and they're pretty much all the same. there's nothing wrong with this one, but it didn't WOW me. now, back to the beginning of the review -
i got this as a birthday gift from Sephora (along with …

Deducting one lippie for price; its not crazy expensive but it's not a great value, either. Cleans very well, and leaves my skin fresh and hydrated. I notice far less congestion in my skin after using this for 6 weeks, which is about as long as a bottle lasts. Lovely scent and great texture - this is full of glycerine and you can really feel it!
I've repurchased, and will …

Moisturizers - Garnier - Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream

May/21/2017

My skin is at the point where i thought a specific night cream would probably be beneficial; as in, fine lines and a general 'tired' appearance are starting to show. So i purchased this 'sleep mask', thinking that if it disappointed me at least it was inexpensive. I wasn't looking for a miracle (despite what the jar says), just wanting some moisture and to wake up …Read more

Nov/09/2016

I really love this product ❤ I'm at an age where I need a little more love on my skin at night (I'm 47, how did that happen??) But I'm also still oily and have congested pores, so not your typical "mature skin". The texture of this is delicious, a light gel cream that sinks right in and leaves my skin plump and moisturized but never greasy or sticky. The scent is relaxing …Read more

Nov/09/2016

After reading the reviews, I'm going to guess that the blue bottle must have some kind of oil that leaves a residue, because I use the pink bottle and haven't noticed anything like this- The pink bottle is like straight up water!
On with my review!
I use this as a makeup remover before my cleansing regime. I can't believe it took me 40 something years to figure out that …

Nov/09/2016

I've been bouncing between various moisturizers depending on the season (hot and sticky summer or cold damp winter) and what shape my skin is in (congested and breaking out, with major shine, or basically normal). Finally, a reasonably priced moisturizer that keeps the oil in check and provides a light, matte finish. I enjoy the delicate scent as well.
Somewhat surprised that …

I've used a lot of BB creams, high to low end, and this is one of the best. incredibly cheap, great coverage, lasts all day and night with no color change. might be more coverage than some look for in this type of product, but I think it's terrific. Will buy over and over!
EDIT- this formulation has changed. It now has sunscreen and I'm no longer singing its praises. It …
