Bought this as a fungal acne safe moisturizer. While it doesn't exacerbate my fungal acne, it makes me break out big time, in painful hard whiteheads all over. I generally have issues with glycerin which is legit in everything, so that could be the culprit. Otherwise ingredients look pretty innocuous to me. Very siliconey feel and would make a good primer. Does leave a sticky residue …Read more

Skincare - Unlisted Brand - Kopari Coconut Melt

ZERO STARS. This product is offensive and an insult to people's wallet and intelligence. It is absolutely no different than plain virgin coconut oil that can be found in the grocery or health food store. In fact, food grade anything oil will always be of a higher quality and safety than cosmetic grade.

Not to mention oils should be stored in glass as plastic chemicals leach …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

High hopes for this but it gave me HIVES and itchy bumps all over my face, even after diluting with another product. I believe I have an issue with most Ordinary products due to their use of propanediol- which is a good alternative to regular water but is known to cause allergic dermatitis in concentration over 75%. This is obviously 95% propanediol.

I purchased a generic bottle of this through a group order and the price was less than $20. It came sealed and with an expiration date. I applied it extremely sparingly every other night for a few weeks along my upper lash line. Unfortunately I couldn't keep using it. It caused extreme redness, peeling and irritation where I applied it. The skin around my eye began to turn red at the …Read more

GOOD HEAVENS! I had a sample of this in the #7 pink shade, I mixed about 1 part this product with 2 parts of my Guerlain LDP (HG). After using it for 4 days I broke out in the WORST cysts I have ever had in my life. They were extremely painful and in the oddest places- like near my orbital bone. Honestly I have no idea what's in this but it's the devil lol. Considering I …Read more

I am so glad I decided to order this product online. I was hesitant to order this at first because I had a hard time tracking down the ingredient list, and was worried about breaking out due to the sodium chloride content. This is a really interesting texture for a moisturizer and I cannot compare it to anything else I have used before. I have had absolutely no breakouts with this product. I …Read more

I LOVE THIS STUFF! just to clarify this is a review for the Laser spf 50+ UVA 35. This is my HG sunscreen, I put it under my makeup and use it every single day. I read some of the other reviews and they are from quite a while ago and I am almost 100% positive that this sunscreen has been reformulated a few times, so take that into account when making a decision. I used to use only all physical …Read more

Unfortunately something in this product gave me a chemical-like burn, which resulted in tightness, itching and peeling. I figured out it was the Imidazolidinyl Urea which I reacted to in SpectroGel as well.

Don't pass this product by though, (unless you're allergic to Imidazolidinyl Urea lol). It's a nice light hydrating gel and great to use under moisturizer. This …

I have been using this product for just over a month and I have seen definite improvements in my skin since starting. BACKGROUND: I bought it because I was getting clogged pores from long days of wearing a full face of MMU, sunscreen, primer etc. I had a bad breakout from a product that didn't agree with my skin. I also was having a problem with one side of my face as I have a lot of …Read more

I have never been compelled to write a review for a product until now. I have been wearing mineral makeup for years and have always had a hard time keeping it fresh looking/not sliding off my very oily skin. As a natural product junkie I won't even go near silicones of any kind, so finding a decent (natural-ish) primer has taken a looooong time! The problem is 99% of primers out there …Read more
