Toners - Whamisa - Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner

1.0

9 months ago

This is a Korean toner/essence which is highly recommended as part of a Korean skincare routine. I have had great luck with a number of Korean skincare brands and products but unfortunately this isn't one of them. I have tried to use this on a number of occasions and each time it has made my skin red with a burning sensation. My skin is normal - slightly dehydrated so it isn't …Read more

Fragrances - Versace - Crystal Noir

I love this fragrance. I'm not good at describing notes in fragrances but googling this fragrance will provide you with the exact notes in Crystal Noir for those who are more familiar.
I prefer slightly muskier scents such as Armani Code (which I believe shares similar notes to Crystal Noir) so this fragrance is exactly what I look for. The lasting power is great and a little goes a …

Toners - HADA LABO - Gokujyun Premium Hyaluronic Acid Lotion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I purchased this after using up the original Hada Labo Moist Lotion as the reviews I read were really good. The premium version is thicker than the original - but still a lightweight gel. My issue with this is that I find that it stings my skin on application and can sometimes leave redness and irritation.I think this version contains niacinamide - which doesn't agree with my skin My skin is …Read more

Toners - HADA LABO - Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion

Aug/29/2018

This is a product that lives up to the hype for me. I used the original version (hydrating/moist) and it is a great product. I was looking for something to add hydration to my skin (normal-dehydrated) and this fits the bill perfectly. I use this after cleansing my face as the first step before other products. It's very light in texture which is better for those using it in the AM. Some …Read more

Concealers - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

This concealer just isn't for me. I have tried to use this in a number of ways and applying it using different methods and it just looks awful on me. I purchased it primarily to use under my eyes but to possibly use on blemishes too. It looks so dry and separates quickly too. I applied over an eye cream and it made no difference. I usually love Urban Decay products so was disappointed. I do …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Pixelated

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2018

This shade is the perfect nude for my skin tone (NC20). It is a milky beige-peach shade with a slight pink undertone. I only gave it 4 stars as I do generally find China Glaze polishes to chip faster than OPI and I also prefer the brush on OPI polishes. I would definitely re-purchase this shade though as it is a great nude colour.

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - CALM Redness Relief Moisturizer Normal to Oily

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2018

My skin is normal and very rarely reacts to products. I use several Paula's Choice products and have experienced no problems..until this. Within ten seconds of applying this, my face felt as though it was on fire. It became really red and the burning sensation I felt was bad. I removed it straight away but my face remained red and it felt sensitive for a couple of days afterwards. This …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Hydrating Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2018

I have been using this product for a couple of weeks now and it is an excellent drugstore cleansing oil. I have previously used the Shu Uemura cleansing oil, MAC and Elemis. I stopped using the Shu Uemura cleansing oil as it contained mineral oil. The Simple cleansing oil is great for my skin type which is normal-dry and can be occasionally sensitive. This doesn't leave a residue and is …Read more

Self Tanners - Unlisted Brand - Bondi Sands - Self Tanning Foam Light/Medium

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/05/2018

This is an excellent self-tan for fair skin. I am NC20 but find that a lot of self tanners go too orange/dark when applied. I prefer to build the colour up with a few applications. This self-tan gives a natural hint of colour which looks golden rather than orange. It looks like a real tan. The foam consistency is easy to apply and applies evenly with a mitt. It genuinely doesn't smell like …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2018

I have used the Beautyblender for a couple of years now. Not long after I purchased it, the tip came off and then since then a few more parts have broken away. I am very careful with things and I am not heavy-handed, so I was quite surprised this happened. I have still been using it as I honestly don't really think it's good enough to warrant re-purchasing a new one. I will happily …Read more
