Treatments (Face) - BIODERMA - Sebium Mat Control

I have sensitive combo skin that needs lots of hydration. My t-zone can be oily, so I need a moisturiser that controls a bit of shine. I bought this on a whim, hoping that maybe, this would work for me. It's not a bad moisturiser, but it's not moisturising enough for my skin. I have to add a moisturising serum underneath, which I would like the option not to always have to do. In the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist 1% Retinol Booster

4.0

3 months ago

When I changed to a new face lotion without retinol, I had to add it to my routine in a different way. Enter this little booster! You get very little product for your money, so one lippie off for that. It is a great product for my combo skin though. It's easy to spread and easily absorbed. It doesn't clog my pores and it doesn't cause redness. I use it on its own (I don't …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Priori - Barrier Repair Complex

This cream was recommended to me as a good purchase for someone with combo skin. It feels nice on the skin and it's moisturising. However, it seems to clog my pores and it makes my skin very oily. I won't repurchase.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Biodroga MD Skin Booster Intense Moisture Serum

Biodroga MD´s products are so ridiculously priced, but I was lucky to get this serum with a discount. I don't think I would pay full price for it though, despite the fact that I like it. It's just too expensive for what you get. I ticked the yes-box because if I find it on sale, I'll buy it again.

This is a serum that is quite moisturising and it doesn't make my …

Crème - Pixi - Beauty Balm High Coverage Foundation

I have never been a person to use foundation, because they make my skin really oily. In my late thirties, I felt I needed to use something on my skin though, as my skin tone wasn't as even as it used to be. After having tried different foundations, I discovered that one of Lumene's foundations works well on my skin. After having used the Lumene foundation for some time, I came acress …Read more

Cleansers - Synchroline - Synchrovit Gentle Cleansing Gel

5 months ago

There are a few cleansing gels that I really like, but this is not one of them. The frangrance is quite strong and I find that it doesn't seem to cleanse my skin properly. It's supposed to be a three in one product: cleanse, tone and condition, but well, I haven't noticed any of that. One good thing is that it doesn't strip my skin, but that's not enough for me to …Read more

I do not care for this serum, despite the good ingredients. I find that it is too sticky for comfort and it makes my skin really, really shiny. It does contain stuff that's great for the skin though and it doesn't aggravate my skin in any way.

I was recommended this face cream years ago and really liked it then. As I like trying new products, I didn't use it for years. Last year, my skin felt really oily in the summer and I remembered that this product had worked well for me in the past. I'm now on my second tube and I'm loving it as a day cream. It contains retinol and other goodies, so sunscreen is a must. It …Read more

Scrubs - Dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I received this microfoliant as a gift with purchase. I've used Dermalogica products in the past and have been more disappointed than happy with the products I've used. They're expensive products and therefore I expect results. I'm not sure that I enjoy the process of having to mix the powder with water, but it is a good exfoliator and it makes my skin soft. However, I find it …Read more
