Treatments (Face) - BIODERMA - Hydrabio Serum

Mar/03/2018

I don't like heavy products that feel like they just sit on top of your skin and slide off your face if you have oily/combo skin. This one is the exact opposite.
A good, simple, unscented, basic hydrating serum that works under or over other products, dries down nicely and gives my skin enough hydration without feeling heavy at all. I use it in the morning after Bioderma Hydrating …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

I love this product, so so so much.
I have oily, dehydrated and acne prone skin which goes in phases of being super resistant to anything to super sensitive to anything. I try to keep a consistent routine including vitamin C, Salicylic acid, Retinol and Lactic acid and this serum actually fits perfectly into the routine, providing some healing, calming and zit clearing qualities to it …

Sunscreen - BIODERMA - Photoderm MAX SPF 50+ Ultra-Fluid

Feb/03/2018

This sunscreen is effective and easily accessible for people in Europe. For me, the pros end here.
It is in no way, shape or form a sunscreen that should be used by people with Oily or even Combination skinned users. It goes on nicely only to explode into puddles of oil in the space of a couple of hours. It feels heavy even if the consistency is very thin and liquidy.
It balls up under …

Skincare - Face - Stridex - Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

Jan/29/2018

I have a love/hate relationship with salicylic acid. It works wonders in terms of clearing out my skin of clogs and and keeping me free from spots, but products that contain it generally dry my skin out so much that I tend to "forget" to use them. These pads are no exception, though the only thing I really dislike is the methol fragrance that I think might be unnecessary …Read more

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

Jan/26/2018

I had never tried lactic acid before this product so I don't have anything to compare it.
I use it two or three times a week, alternating with 1% retinol (TO) and a "rest" day where I focus on hydration. I have been used it for 2 months consistently now.
This product is very well priced and the packaging, though not perfect, is functional and allows you to see exactly …

Treatments (Face) - Nip + Fab - Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme

5.0

Dec/30/2017

As other reviewers have stated, these pads are not quite as extreme as you would think, but they are effective, the price is quite good and you can easily find them in most drugstores and online.
The packaging is ok, I wish it were possible to have some extra liquid at the bottom to shake up so that the top pads don't dry up, but to be honest, it's not a big gripe.
I use …

Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lip Liner

Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2017

I have perpetually flaky lips (wonderful, I know), no matter how much I moisturize or exfoliate. I had given up on lip liners as I'd always thought they would just accentuate the dryness and the ones I had tried had sadly confirmed this. But, as the make up addict I am, I decided it wouldn't hurt to try these, especially given the low price. I have In the Nude and it is the only nude …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Lip Lingerie

Apr/13/2017

I have two of these which I bought having seen all the hype. Yes, I know. Marketing got me. The colors I have are French Maid and Exotic. I bought them in Italy and I think the price might have been around 8 or 9 euros.
I don't like the formula one little bit. It's extremely drying, starts crumbling after some time and feels like your lip contours are being sucked in after even a …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

5.0

Apr/13/2017

I've used two of these in the colors permanent taupe and creme de rose.
I love these. The price is good, staying power on my oily lids is comparable to mac paint pots and the elf primer, and I like that there are matte colors and not only the usual shimmery ones. I put these directly onto the lid with a stiffer "blending" brush and then I go over them with a powder eyeshadow …

Toners - Dermalogica - Multi-Active Toner

Apr/13/2017

I'm very much on the fence with this product. I bought it around 6 months ago and I go through phases when I want to use it and then I don't anymore.
PROs:
- no alcohol
- contains some nice herbal extracts including aloe vera which does wonders for my skin
- comes in a huge bottle so feels like overall good value for money
- feels extremely refreshing and …
