Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Daily Facial Broad Spectrum SPF 40

Ahhhh I wish this wasn't so pricey, but I love love love this sunscreen. It's a dream to work with & HG status. Works well under makeup, which was a concern for me because we all know that sunscreens/blocks can pill, become an oily mess, or leave a white cast, etc. I don't find that this does any of that! My only problem was that the tinted version completely oxidized on me …Read more

Deodorants - Tom's of Maine - Long Lasting Unscented Deodorant

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I LOVE Tom's of Maine! I use the mouthwash & toothpaste, but the deodorant didn't work out for me. It glides on like butter, but it's definitely NOT "long- lasting" nor "24 hour" wear. I had to reapply throughout the day. It also gave me a slimy feeling that I didn't care for, I guess because it doesn't fully absorb. I love this brand & …Read more

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - AM SPF 30

1.0

2 months ago

I had high expectations of quality, considering this is a CeraVe product. I wanted to love it, but I truly don't have anything good to say about it. It pills terribly! The only way that I can get it to work(to some degree) is if I apply it as soon as I finish washing/drying my face & wait 15mins to carefully put on lotion/primer/foundation, otherwise it's a hot mess. You have to …Read more

So far this is my favorite primer/base!

Pros:
-Blurs pores & smooths out texture, immediately.
-The little glass jar is super cute!
-It is on the thicker side, but once you warm it up, it applies easily(I use a Q-Tip to get the product out, instead of my fingers).
-Feels silky/velvety on skin

Cons:
-Pricey for such a tiny jar. I don't use it …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Round Lipstick in Circe #522

Creamy & moisturizing. Exactly what I want in a lipstick! Great price! Bonus points for the safety seal! I hate when cosmetics are not protected. My only gripe is the chemical smell. When I opened & applied it, it hit me right away. Maybe I'm sensitive, but it smells like cleaning solution. Not a fan of that(& thankfully it does not linger), otherwise, I'm pretty pleased.

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick

10 months ago

Love that wet n wild is always affordable. I bought the nude shade. I actually didn't notice that it was matte until I reached home. (what I get for not wearing my glasses, oy!) I've never tried a matte lipstick before, but I was willing to give it a shot. Love the color, however, I did not care for the feel. (& yes, I did apply a moisturizing balm beforehand). Maybe I'm just …Read more

Treatments (Face) - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Aloe Vera Plant

Aug/09/2018

I was using this as a serum & makeup primer. I scrape the gel from the leaf & mix it in the blender. Makes for an easier application. Unfortunately, I had to stop due to skin irritation(make sure you patch test!). I'm so bummed because it worked BEAUTIFULLY as a primer. Oddly enough, my scalp doesn't have an issue so I still continue to use it as a hair mask. It always makes my …Read more

Jan/25/2018

I use this when I have dryness or rosacea/psoriasis flare ups. It helps to repair my barrier. I cleanse my face, apply a rose or acv toner, apply moisturizer, then top it with vaseline. I do this nightly until my barrier heals!

Moisturizers - Trader Joe's - Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Jan/14/2018

I like that it doubles as a moisturizer/sunscreen. Glides on very easily. Leaves the skin feeling smooth & looking hydrated. Works well underneath makeup. Inexpensive. It's now my go-to. Melts into the skin. The texture is just like your standard lotion. Doesn't leave a white cast. If I'm on the go, the size is perfect for my cosmetic bag/purse. If you're allergic to …Read more
