Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Decubal - Facial Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2018

This is a very basic cleanser. I bought it at the airport in Oslo because mine had been confiscated in London (I thought bringing a near-empty bottle of face wash would work, and it did one way, but apparently not on the way back!) Anyway, I chose this because it was one of the cheapest varieties (ah, Norwegian prices!) and also because it had a short ingredient list. No parabens, no perfumes, no …Read more

Masks - Aztec Secret - Indian Healing Clay

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/15/2018

I've been wanting to try this mask for a while after hearing all the good things about it. Normally I use Queen Helene or St. Ives, which both contain kaolin clay, so I already know it works. However, Aztec is 100% kaolin and contains no parabens or preservatives, and you mix it yourself with equal parts of either water or ACV. I already use ACV on a regular basis as a toner and it does …Read more

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Matte Lip Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2018

I bought this product on a whim and so far so good. It comes in a long retractable tube -- I'd call it a lip stick and not lipstick. My chosen shade is "Dash of Pink", which is a wearable hot pink, and I only apply a light wash of it on my lips with a layer of balm underneath for a natural look. The product is labeled matte, but seeing as it's not a liquid formula, it …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/07/2018

This is the only lotion I will use from now on. I love that Aveeno is scent-free and not greasy, as well as made with less chemicals than most drugstore brands. I have eczema-prone skin and this is the only lotion that is gentle and moisturizing enough to soothe my dry, itchy patches and even make them disappear! Whenever I switch to another lotion (e.g. when travelling or visiting my parents) …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Olive Oil Makeup Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2018

This is my HG eye makeup remover, and it can't be simpler, cheaper, or easier to use! It's very gentle on the eyes, dissolves all makeup, and as a bonus, conditions your lashes and brows with essential fatty acids and vitamin E. In fact, you can use it on your entire face! Try this as part of your nighttime routine: a cotton pad wet with warm water, mixed with a few drops of olive oil …Read more

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2018

I've just started using this product after not being able to buy my usual Yves Rocher cleanser. I chose it because it's mostly natural, and I had tried and liked their Sensitive cleanser while visiting my mum. I thought this would be more suitable for me since it claims to deep-clean and remove makeup well. So far, so good! I still remove my makeup with olive oil and lavender EO before …Read more

Masks - Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2016

I love, love love this mask! It really works wonders on my skin -- I use it once a week as part of my detox ritual, and the difference is noticeable. My skin looks tighter and smoother, my pores are smaller, and any pimples I have are visibly reduced (I also use this as a spot treatment overnight when a big one pops up on my face and it works quite well!). I like the minty feeling of the masque …Read more

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Mousse

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2015

I only bought this because I was travelling to the big city for a few days and, due to a last-minute rush, forgot to pack my makeup kit. Not wanting to spend any more money than I had to but acknowledging that I needed to put a face on if I wanted to go out, I sucked it up and went to the drugstore.

Never. Again.

Wearing Dream Matte Mouse made me feel like I had regressed …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2015

I got this for about $6, so I have no qualms about my low rating. Don't get me wrong -- I've loved Maybelline in the past (hello, Colossal and Falsies!), but this just didn't make the cut. I'll admit, I bought it because of the packaging -- a pretty, mauve elliptical tube with what looks like Bodoni font. The brush is pretty good, but the formula, as a few reviewers have …Read more

Blush - RIMMEL - Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/11/2014

I purchased this for roughly $6 CDN. So far, so great! I was looking for a liquid blush for the summer (glitter is just awkward, especially since I don't wear too much makeup when it's hot), and this fits the bill perfectly. Its small, oil paint-like tube is convenient to stash in a travel purse, and despite its size, it seems like it will last -- a little goes a long way with this one …Read more
