Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Lume Deodorant

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Ok, so deodorants and antiperspirants seem to be very individual; what works for one person might not work at all for another, etc.

That said, I've tried several brands of natural deodorant, and Lume works better than any of them, without any of the irritation of baking-soda-based formulas. One lippie off because it's not perfect, HG status, and I'm willing to try other …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - clindamycin phosphate topical gel 1%

3 months ago

This prescription product is a great addition to a dermatologist-prescribed acne regimen, along with BP (according to the 2016 AAD guidelines, it's best to use BP when using topical antibiotics for longer than a couple of months, to prevent bacterial resistance. A BP wash or mask formula a few times a week is adequate).

1 lippie off because it's not really meant to be used …

Mascara - Boots - No 7 Stay Perfect Long Lasting Volume Mascara

I've repurchased this once already, plus a backup!
I remember trying out tubing mascara about 10-15 years ago (at least I THINK it was tubing mascara?) and it was nearly impossible to remove. This is MUCH better and completely different.

Stays in place, even in the pouring rain, until I'm cleansing my face at night. I make sure to cup my hands with water and hold it on …

Cleansers - Etude House - SoonJung pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser

4.0

Overall, this is a great product; it's just a bit too drying for my dehydrated skin type. Not the product's fault at all, since the La Roche Posay Toleriane Gentle Hydrating Cleanser that Skin Care Board tends to love is also too drying for me.

Gentle, unscented, simple cleanser with a fun pump that produces quite a bit of foam. This isn't going to remove silicone-heavy …

Toners - Etude House - SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner

I purchased the "easy size" of this and have been using it for about 6 weeks. I apply twice a day and I'd estimate I still have about 2 weeks' worth left in the bottle, so a little goes a long way.

It comes out like water, so at first I wasn't sure it was doing anything, but as winter set in and my skin didn't get dehydrated like it usually does (the house …

I've been using this sunscreen pretty much daily since April 2018 and have gone through multiple bottles. I've tried many, many sunscreens, but I always seem to come back to this.

Ingredients:
All-physical filters, no fragrance or alcohol, not dehydrating on my skin, nice staying power, white cast is very, very slight for an all-physical spf. Also has some nice …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Burnout SPF 30 Natural for Family

Dec/26/2017

This review is for the 2017 formulation in the orange tube with blue lettering and cap.

This is my go-to body sunscreen. It's more hydrating than Thinksport/Thinkbaby line and easier to spread as well as being slightly less whitening. Granted, it's only SPF 30, as opposed to 50, but for everyday use that's ok. I'll save the white Thinkpaste for "sporty" …

Treatments (Eye) - 100% Pure - Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

Nov/01/2017

I got the .3oz size of this and the tip had no hole in it (it was solid plastic) so when I went to squeeze some out, a bunch of product came out of the crimped end. So you may want to check and be sure there's a hole in the tip (you may have to cut one) before squeezing.

My main complaint with this product is that it has added fragrance, which I didn't realize when I …

Here are the ingredients: http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_cb83300893.html

I'd recommend this sunscreen to anyone who has normal skin (not especially dry or dehydrated) that can be sensitive.

Shipping was quite fast, I was impressed with how quickly it came from the company. Price is …

Sunscreen - Etude House - Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk SPF50+ / PA+++

Jul/26/2017

Recommend for: normal, oily, or acne-prone skin that isn't particularly sensitive.

This sunscreen is really lovely. Has a slight citrus fragrance (similar to Biore UV Watery Gel) and it DOES contain alcohol, but it fades down quite fast to nothing. It's a little more weightless/elegant than my previous favorite Sunkiller Baby Milk (which I loved, but Amazon doubled the price …
