This was the first vitamin C serum I tried so admittedly I only have one other to compare it to (Timeless). What I loved about this was the potency and the packaging. The pump is very air tight and ensures the product lasts longer and I think the formulation is good compared to a lot of Vit C containing products that seem unstable.

What I disliked are that the serum itself does not …

Great concealer overall! Would recommend if you have mild to moderate acne/scarring or redness you want to cover up. I think it's good for normal to dry skin if you can find a shade match.

My usual go to for covering up dark spots & redness was Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, I heard this was similar in coverage so tried it out. If you're familiar with LM this has a …

I've been using this foundation almost daily for about a month now. I found a great colour match for myself which is a huge bonus (I'm neutral, slightly yellow/olive leaning and use Ceylan). NO oxidizing thankfully which is super important!

Finish is natural and just slightly dewy. As someone who can get shiny I used to only go for matte finish but I realized this looks so …

Primer/ Corrector - Sephora Collection - Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer

Great for oily skin and if you have scarring/bumps/flakes you want to smooth over. LOVE the pump dispenser, velvet finish. I would say this primer is less about pro-longing makeup wear and more about creating a smooth, velvet base and preventing caking.

For reference this is almost an exact dupe of Maybelline Baby Skin, the difference is I find this primer is less silicone-y (still …

3.5/5

Really wish this didn't pill so much because otherwise it is very elegant in texture for a physical sunscreen. You can minimize the pilling if you don't wear anything under or over it but this isn't ideal for many people and even if you wear it alone if you don't blend it fast enough then it just pills and rubs off anyways.

Points for the pump …

Love this cream, it looks very thick but actually goes on very smooth and feels light, I use it as a daytime moisturiser.

I have combo skin and was suffering from dehydration (papery, dry forehead, scaly areas around cheeks) due to using tretinoin.

I was looking for a product with ceramides to plump my skin back up, first tried Cerave but it clogged my pores and I would …

********
UPDATE 2019:

This isn't an update to say anything wild just that after finishing off the bottle I decided to take a lippie off as compared to similar sunscreens I tried I would not recommend this anymore unless its for price.

The reason being is that I found the protection does not cut it & I grew to dislike the finish.

I don't mean …

My go to for 6/7 years now. I have mild acne and combination skin with the usual dry patches and clogged pores. I use this as a facial cleanser.

What I love about this soap is that it lathers so richly but leaves no residue. It does not dry skin out at all and was probably one of the first products I used as a cleanser that did not leave my skin feeling tight or leave a sticky feeling …

Nov/16/2017

I have mild acne, combination skin - at any given time I have a few active blemishes, I tend to get clogged pores and also have dry patches from acne treatments and dry cheeks/slight redness.

My skin is not really sensitive to strong products and my acne is more diet/hormone related than products that break me out.

Background: I bought this product when I was going through …

UPDATE 2019:

Looking back I decided to update my review and take a lippie off this. Before I could finish the bottle the product went rancid on me with still half a bottle left! I guessed that it had gone off because the colour went from a deep amber/orange shade to a pale almost white & it smelled like old olive oil. Disappointing considering I store it properly and …
