Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula (All Formulas)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2013

I mean, honestly, what hasn't been said about cocoa butter in general that needs to be repeated? Haha, it's seriously amazing. I don't use Palmer's in particular but the formula remains the same throughout every brand. I've been having a bit too much fun this winter break and have been neglecting my body which includes my skin. My hands have been cracking from dryness …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Garnier - Dark Spot Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2012

I'm surprised by the 'meh' rating on this product. I'll admit -- I've never used a Garnier product before. Mostly because something about the green packaging turns me off. BUT I was on the hunt for a moisturizer with vitamin C in it, and after some strenuous research I decided to take the plunge and get this. Well, after one months use, I can say that I really do like it! …Read more

Masks - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Papaya Enzyme Facial Mask

Jun/27/2012

This is an example of a product that I used years ago but never understood the purpose of it, so I stopped using it after a few times. Recently I was looking for a new exfoliant that wasn't chemical based or a physical scrub, and it hit me...why not try the Alba mask that I used as a teenager? So I bought it, have been using it now for a few months, and I LOVE IT. It's sooo great as a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

Jun/25/2012

I read the reviews and knew what I was getting into, so I tried this "primer" on one side of my face -- the outer edge, to be specific. Yeah...4 days and this gave me about 2 pustules in that area. I should've realized nothing good could have come from this since, in my 4-day trial, that outer edge of my face actually FELT congested during the day. Acne prone skin beware or just …Read more

Sunscreen - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Liquid Silk Sunshield For Face SPF 50 [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/02/2012

Say hello to the drugstore dupe of La Roche Posay's liquid sunscreens! This is almost identical to LRP except L'Oreal's SPF 50 doesn't leave any sort of whitish cast compared to LRP. This could be a good or bad thing depending on your needs. For me, I personally like LRP's tint since it offers a teensy bit of coverage, making me use less makeup overall.
One thing …

Cleansers - Earth Science - A-D-E Creamy Cleanser

5.0

Jan/07/2012

UPDATE JULY 2016: Here we are, over four years later. I've drifted away from MUA and found myself on this specific page on this random Thursday night. I'm older, wiser, and still using this cleanser. I've never switched or steered away from it. My skin needs have changed and the one constant in my routine throughout the years has been this product. Guys & gals, this is THE most …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios Ultra Light Face Sunscreen SPF 60

Dec/17/2011

Yes, yes, yes. I've finally found the closest thing to a HG sunscreen! This stuff is absolutely fantastic. It moisturizes, protects, and gives my face a "soft focus" finish, but that's expected with all the silicone in this product. Speaking of silicone, I 100% expected the ingredients to break out my very acne-prone skin, but it does not clog me at all!!
The ONLY …

Dry Shampoo - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Cornstarch as Dry Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2011

I wish I had found out about this technique when the weather was 100+ degrees! Cornstarch makes my face ALMOST completely matte. It's not quite the finish I was hoping for when I first used it, but the way it controlled my very oily skin from going into "gulf spill" territory is amazing. The only negative thing is that if I use even the tiniest bit too much, then it dries my skin …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream with Sunscreen spf 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2011

This is just a fantastic moisturizer, period. The SPF 15 (not to mention with mexoryl as a filter and a PPD of 12) is an added bonus. When I use sunscreen, I pretty much always use a good heaping 1/4 teaspoon, so a S/S can easily make my skin look and feel greasy or dehydrated, depending on if the formula is matte or not. This moisturizer, even using 1/4 tsp, does NOT make my skin look greasy nor …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2011

I've pretty much gone through the whole Neutrogena sunscreen line, so I'll be comparing this SPF 55 to its lesser protective sisters. (30 and 45)
The 55 is just...WHITE STREAKS GALORE. It's ridiculous how much you have to rub it in, and a few minutes after you think you've rubbed it all in . . . Bam, more white marks pop up as it continues to "dry down." It is …
