Treatments (Face) - Peace Out - Dark Spots Microneedling Brightening Dots

1.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I used these as directed: twice a week for two weeks, and didn’t see any improvement on my dark spots. I used up one of the two packets and still didn’t see any improvement, but at this point was told I couldn’t return it. I ended up selling my second packet on eBay. These are expensive for something that did nothing for my dark spot, and use SO much packaging: the box, the plastic shell, the …Read more

Shampoo - R+Co - Dallas Biotin Thickening Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is a pretty good thickening shampoo. I have long, slightly wavy hair with oily roots and dry ends. I shampoo every other day, using Klorane dry shampoo on my no-wash days. Dallas delivers decent volume but my hair feels coated after blowdrying - the biotin maybe? Hair seems to get dirtier faster, with my roots looking greasy by the end of the day if I shampoo'd the night before …Read more

Hair Treatments - R+Co - Acid Wash ACV Cleansing Rinse

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I'm currently on my second full-sized bottle of this rinse, third if you count the travel-sized bottle I received as a free sample from a recent Beautylish order that got me hooked. This is pricey but I only use it once a week in place of my regular shampoo. I love the scent (it's called Relative Paradise, R+Co sells it as a spray but it smells best as part of this rinse, IMO) …Read more

Foundations - NARS Cosmetics - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this foundation yet. I bought a bottle when it first came out, and still have tons left. To be fair, I don't use this as my primary foundation. I typically mix a drop with NARS tinted moisturizer when my skin is looking less than perfect for extra coverage. It's super pigmented but can be a touch drying and settles into pores if used by …Read more

Styling Products - Living Proof - Flex Shaping Hairspray

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Performance-wise, this hairspray is fine, but I was not prepared for the strong, odd fragrance despite reading about it in the reviews and even testing it in-store. I've used LP triple detox shampoo, full conditioner, and TBD styling cream so I'm familiar with the usual fragrance, but this hairspray has the oddest musk-y floral gourmand scent that at times smells like Play-doh. If LP …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume HD Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I'm currently using a sample tube of this mascara. I find the tube pumping instructions to be gimmicky, but the mascara does deliver decent volume to my sparse lashes. However, this formula is on the grey side of black so if you're looking for a deep black mascara this one isn't it. Also, it flakes quite a bit and I have little black specs under my eyes by mid-day. I compare all …Read more

Conditioner - Playa - Supernatural Conditioner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Calling this conditioner "Supernatural" is a stretch, but I do enjoy using it. A little goes a long way - it's a rich yellow cream that smells like cake batter and is intensely hydrating for my hair. I wouldn't apply it from root to tip as instructed though, because I have oily scalp and dry ends. I found it performed similarly to the Rahua conditioner. I didn't notice …Read more

Shampoo - Playa - Every Day Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I don't wash my hair every day, but I prefer sulfate-free, gentle formulas that don't dry out my scalp. I purchased the Supernatural Conditioner, and selected a shampoo/conditioner sample with a recent Sephora order and ended up liking the shampoo much more than the conditioner. It has a lovely tropical/coconut/vanilla gourmand scent like what you'd expect from a Diptyque candle …Read more

Cleansers - Drunk Elephant - Beste Jelly Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I'm slowly making my way through my first tube of this cleanser and haven't experienced any adverse effects. Sometimes I use this after removing my makeup in the shower with DHC cleansing oil and my skin feels clean but not stripped. Be careful not to get any in your eyes though, because it stings like crazy! I would repurchase and am glad they changed the cap dispenser because the …Read more

Moisturizers - Drunk Elephant - Lala Retro Whipped Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I love DE's treatments (Babyfacial, Vitamin C serum, Framboos night serum) but find their moisturizers to be overpriced and lacking. Lala is nice but I wouldn't consider it a must-have. It has a light, whipped cream texture that absorbs quickly. I use it primarily during the Fall/Winter season and alternate with plain argan oil, or add a few drops of argan oil mixed in with Lala. …Read more
