Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Facial Cleansing Oil

2.0

Way, way too drying. I wouldn't use this on the eye area - it says not to on the bottle - so I'm reviewing this for how it performs on the rest of my face. My skin feels so stripped after this. Probably a good choice for very oily skin, but for me this gets a pass. I wanted to keep using it, but at this point I feel like it's been a couple of months and I got my money's worth …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Cetaphil Gentle Make up Remover

Excellent value, already on my 2nd bottle. I've tried a few different methods of removing eye makeup. I'm prone to getting styes and have to be very careful. I like using cleansing milk or oil cleansers on my face to remove foundation and SPF, but I wanted something especially for the eye area that would be very gentle. I saw that this was recommend by an ophthalmologist in a magazine …Read more

I guess my 3 Star rating is a lot higher than the others on here so far, but I probably wouldn't buy this stuff again either. I have yellow undertones with olive skin and have found happiness with L'Oreal Pro Matte 104. I'm about an NC30. I bought this in B50 in the spring when I was looking for some sheer coverage that I could wear easily in daytime. I guess I just really wanted …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Dr. Hauschka - Eye Contour Day Cream

1.0

The only thing I could recommend this for is a very emollient base for undereye concealer. Sometimes concealers are drying, so putting something really emollient underneath helps blend out the pigments well. This eye balm is great for that. But, for the price, one could use so many other things for that purpose...

As far as fine lines (my primary issue), this did nothing. It smelled …

Treatments (Face) - Avene - Retrinal

5.0

Mar/17/2018

I have been using RetrinAL 0.05 for almost 3 months now, and it is superb. The first retinol product I've ever tried. I'm 35, have dry, sensitive skin prone to rosacea and redness. A lot of things like harsh cleansers, SLS, and most acids give me instant rosacea outbreaks. But, since I had never tried retinol, I was curious to try it and settled on Avene because of good reviews and …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

2.0

Mar/16/2018

I used this on every 3rd night for almost 2 months and saw nothing beneficial. I'm almost halfway through the bottle. One of my night creams has retinol in it - I wake up the next day looking great. The next night I use another night cream that has a variety of ingredients - I wake up looking good. The third night, I use this Ascorbyl Glucoside solution and layer a very mild cream over it …Read more

Foundations - Lancôme - Skin Feels Good Skin Nourishing Foundation

Mar/10/2018

I sampled this in two colors from Sephora. I got the warm almond and beige shades to try against my warm-neutral olive skin (I am South Asian, if that helps). I was comparing this YSL's Touche Eclat All In One Glow product, which recently came out. I think I like the YSL better. The Lancome has great ingredients for dry skin, but the perfume was very, very strong, and not something that I …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2017

This is a product for dry skin. Mine leans towards rosacea sometimes, but that's usually caused by lifestyle factors or by exfoliating too much. I haven't used drugstore skincare in almost 20 years (I use natural stuff from either Whole Foods or high end lines or make my own). But, the teenager in me who grew up using drugstore stuff was always curious about this line, so I decided to …Read more

Lipstick - ILIA - Tinted Lip Conditioner in Crimson And Clover

5.0

Aug/24/2017

I totally disagree with the reviewer who said this only looks good on cool skintones. I have warm-neutral olive skin, and this is the perfect bright red for me. I love wearing this in the daytime. You can dab it on as a stain or go heavier for a more saturated color. The pigments are bright and clear. The color is cheerful and vibrant but also fresh, because it's a bit sheer (it becomes less …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - evanhealy - Wild Carrot Eye Balm

Aug/15/2017

This is a miss for evanhealy. I love so many of their products (the hydrosols, the rosehip serums, all of the cleansers, the green clay mask), but I have to say that this product has some flaws. The main one is the packaging - in theory an eye balm delivered in stick packaging should make everything quick and easy to apply, but in my experience the product tugged at my under eye, which is already …Read more
