Skincare - Face - Arbonne - Entire Line

Feb/17/2014

I drank the Kool-Aid on this one .... Short story before the long, skin broke out like crazy, my skin was a grease slick when I don't have oily skin, makeup didn't stay on for a min.

My friend invited me to her friends place for a "facial night" which was hosted by an independent consultant for Arbonne. I'm in the health care field and conscious about toxic …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Spironolactone for Acne

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2013

Usage - 6+ months

So I had a hate - hate - LOVE relationship with this med. Like so many people who have commented below me, I did not have acne as a teenager (just your regular pimple here and there during my cycle) Halfway through my 25th year, mother nature decided to get revenge on me for escaping my teens clear skinned. I began getting large cysts along my jaw line around my …

Mascara - ModelCo - FiberLash Brush On False Lashes Kit

Got this mascara in a Birchbox, a full tube which is really nice. This mascara is so awesome! It really does look like you put on some classy falsies! The price on this is really high for an everyday use kind of purchase, but if I had a big event like a wedding or something I'd definitely buy this. The mascara tube itself has a mirror on the side so if you need to do applications on the …Read more

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Multi-tasking Concealer

I never thought that a powder concealer would work, but I was pleasantly surprised. I use the concealer before and after foundation. I feel like 2 applications covers my blemishes and dark circles better and makes the coverage last longer. Acne scars and blemishes cover surprisingly well and even after all the powder applications my skin doesn't look overly powdered or fakely made up. …Read more

Bronzers - Everyday Minerals - Soft Bronzer

This bronzer is amazing for contouring on light skin! This is the first time I have ever used a bronzer that did not make me orange or look like I had dirt on my face. If you have medium skin tone this bronzer probably wont do anything for you. For reference I use the fairly light semi-matte foundation. Will absolutely purchase again.

Dec/03/2012

I've just recently gone paraben free with my makeup products as the most recent line of defense against my sudden onset adult acne (been battling for 2 yrs now with no prior acne history .. siiggghh) I discovered Everyday Minerals on MUA and decided to try them out since it was dirt cheap compared to what I had been paying for foundation. I'm new to using mineral makeup and I was …Read more

Foundations - Per-fekt - Skin Perfection Gel

Dec/03/2012

I received this foundation(?) in a sample pack from Sephora and I was very unimpressed. I was really excited to try this out since I have recently just went paraben free and dumped most of my makeup and have been using mineral powder. I like the minerals but I crave that moist dewy look you can get from a great liquid foundation. This was not a liquid but more of a cream which needed to be …Read more

My asthetician uses this mask on me during my facials and it is pretty nice. I wasn't ready to commit to it at home due to the price tag and small amount of product. I did however go to Sephora and ask for a sample of Murad's sulfur mask and DDF's sulfur mask to compare. I have not used either as a full mask, but have used as spot treatment.

The reason I am writing …

Jun/17/2012

I am so glad I found this BB Cream. I have realllly red undertones in my skin and I need some kind of coverage to walk out of the house and not look scary, but I dont always want to use a full coverage foundation since I am also acne prone.

I would describe this as a highly tinted moisturizer that evens skin tone hides large pores and gives the face a nice suble glow. I dont see any …

Jun/17/2012

This is a wonderful foundation, it is very full coverage. I recieved a sample of this from Sephora in Perfect Praline and it was blended so beautifully with my skin. My skin tone was so even with this foundation which can be hard to achieve with my weird combo skin and red/blackhead filled chin and acne along the jaw. Especially looked beautiful on my clear cheeks. Anyone with clear skin will …Read more
