Moisturizers - COSRX - Advanced 96 Snail Mucin Power Essence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2017

Purchased this around a month ago to see if I could get into the hype surrounding snail mucus, and I seriously love this stuff. Deeply hydrating, not greasy, and sets into the skin wonderfully. Has helped me work through some major skin irritation (from using moisturizers that don't agree with me) and has helped some old cystic pimples heal and fade. No scent as far as I can tell, and can be …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Supergoop! - Defense Refresh Setting Mist

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2017

Wanted to love this, because I've been looking for an SPF spray that won't mess up my makeup when I need to reapply throughout the day, and I had heard amazing things about Supergoop. Smells amazing, and does feel very refreshing, but it never realllllly quite "sets down" and leaves my face feeling greasy and heavy for the rest of the day. Made my makeup break up on my face …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Select Cover-Up

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2017

Hands down my favourite concealer. Blends seamlessly, doesn't feel heavy on the skin, and covers wonderfully.

Pretty multipurpose as well - I've used this alone, with a variety of other foundations, BB creams, tinted moisturizers, and it lasts. Never creases, doesn't fade until I take it off at the end of the day. Covers everything from my severe dark circles to mega …

Masks - LUSH - Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2017

I wasn't entirely sold on LUSH's new jelly masks, but I picked up Bunny Moon because my skin was freaking out and I wanted something soothing while it sorted itself out. Packaging is standard LUSH packaging - tiny clear tub (which I was told by the sales associate also counts toward their tub return perk). It's easy enough to use, pinch off a little bit and work it into a paste …Read more

Moisturizers - Weleda - Skin Food

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2017

My skin has been FREAKING OUT lately - crazy irritation, cystic acne, dryness, flaking, itching, blackheads, YOU NAME IT. I picked up a bigger tube of this at a local health food store because I had heard it works lovely as a night cream and oh my goodness, I woke up with less flaking, acne, and itching. After one night of use. I find the scent to be soothing - especially right before bedtime (it …Read more

Moisturizers - Glossier - Priming Moisturizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2017

I received a sample of this in my Glossier order and I wasn't sold. I used it in the morning before my makeup, allowing about a half hour for it to absorb. It never really sank into my skin, and instead seemed to sit just on top of it. As for its priming powers, it didn't seem to work any better than my other moisturizers - after a couple of hours my foundation was oily and patchy …Read more

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2017

Received a sample foil of this in a little bag at Sephora for spending over $40, and I'm glad I got to try a sample. I have dry skin with enlarged pores on my nose and chin, as well as some fine lines, scarring, and hyper-pigmentation. Has a wonderful creamy consistency, and I tried it as primer and as a finishing balm. I made sure to pat on, rather than rub. Didn't really do much as a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - Milk Makeup - Blur Stick

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2017

I have been tempted to buy this for quite some time now, and its comparisons to the Benefit porefessional and price tag held me back (porefessional doesn't really do anything for me). Unfortunately, I should have trusted my gut instinct. I tried this on bare skin, over sunscreen, under foundation, tinted moisturizer, and as a touch-up and it doesn't give me the "wow" factor …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Floating Island

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2017

I no longer live in an apartment with a bathtub, but I still longingly gaze at the bath section at LUSH. The floating island has been reformulated into a smaller, creamy mound, which I picked up for about $5 CDN - figured I could use bits of it as a foot soak, for when my feet are tired after teaching or schlepping around all day.

For that purpose it's quite lovely! I threw it …
