I have struggled with dishydrotic eczema on my hands for most of my life. I'd break out in fluid filled blisters between my fingers and red rashes on the backs of my hands/wrists. I used prescription steroids (topical, injections, and pills) to try to control the symptoms only to have them return. The biggest culprit was Softsoap Aloe soap and most anything with fragrance or essential oils …Read more

I was gifted this fragrance for Christmas and I love it!! It's technically a cologne but lasts forever plus has the kind of sillage that requires a light touch when applying. I've been playing with rose scents like TF$ NdN and Guerlain Rose Barbare since last summer but they're both so $$$ plus I was looking for a truer rose scent.

I've read that JM uses 7 …

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Cocavo

*Cocavo is a blend of unrefined extra virgin coconut oil and extra virgin avocado oil. I purchased it at Walmart for <$8. It is a solid product that I scoop out with a clean spoon and it melts immediately when it comes into contact with skin. I am very sensitive to fragrance and it has no discernable scent at all. It is, of course, a bit oily on skin so I blot with a paper towel very lightly …Read more

Of course I totally agree with Lipglossjunkie below. I love this scent and was so pleasantly surprised by it! To me it smells like a girl's night out with your best friend. Sitting at a table sharing a decadent dessert; a caramel pear tart topped with fresh whipped cream while sipping sugar rimmed lemon drop martinis. This scent lasts all day long, especially on my clothes. It's perfect …Read more

While I wasn't immediately wowed by Poudrée, it turned into such a beautiful fragrance after the drydown. I can definitely smell the tonka which is one of my favorite notes. It's followed by a gloriously understated jasmine plus just the perfect amount of rosiness and cedarwood. It's lasting power is impressive and the sillage is just right. I can't believe I've never …Read more

I'm NC15 and the shade Y215 is a good match. This is a pretty natural looking foundation that's sheer-medium in coverage. I apply it with a damp Beauty Blender and set with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder on the corresponding velour puff. It lasts most of the day without getting too shiny. The best part is that it doesn't highlight my textural issues or dry spots. I gave it …Read more

I a MUA at Sephora try this on me yesterday and it applied pretty nicely. The shade Snow was a good enough match for my NC15 skin but it oxidized quite a bit within an hour or so of application. I was pretty orangey but left it on the rest of the day out of laziness. I removed it at night with my usual TTDO Balm but unfortunately woke up to half a dozen breakouts on the bottom half of my face …Read more

Many years ago in high school, Vanilla Fields was my favorite perfume. I had been wanting a grown-up version and ended up with this. It's a beautiful vanilla with enough lime, Amber, and oak to keep it from being a one-note boring vanilla. I love vanilla paired with citrus, especially bergamot, like Chanel Allure and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Intense have. It definitely has a Burberry for …Read more

Mar/22/2018

My hair is fine but abundant, dry/damaged from highlighting and coloring. It made my hair super frizzball and I didn't see really any positive effects from this masque. Also, it broke me out on the back of my neck/behind my ears/hairline. I Can't use any SM products because they have so much coconut oil and break me out. Much prefer Joico K-pak Intense Hydrator Mask and the Redken …Read more

My teenage son has dandruff, oily hair, and very sensitive skin. We tried Nizoral, T-sal, Head and Shoulders, etc. and nothing was helping. This however has pretty much cleared his dandruff completely and leaves his naturally blonde/fine but abundant/slightly wavy hair soft and shiny. And the best part is that it makes his hair smell really fresh!

I, however, wasn't a fan (which …
