Moisturizers - Weleda - Skin Food

This cream is a lifesaver for my dry and temperamental skin in the winter. The texture is a bit off putting at first (it is very thick and tacky), but it has a light and refreshing (not floral, thankfully) scent, and it does absorb into your skin as long as you warm it a bit/give it some time to really sink in. I like to let Skin Food have at least ten minutes or so before continuing with any …Read more

Masks - Sunday Riley - Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask

This mask is fine. It is VERY drying, and I can't imagine using it as an overnight spot treatment. My dry and temperamental skin can handle small amounts in fifteen minute increments, but I am really only doing that because the product was expensive and I'd like to use it up. Unlike other reviewers, I've been fortunate and haven't experienced any chemical burns/scaling …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - T.L.C. SUKARI BABYFACIAL

At a glance: this is a fabulous chemical exfoliant in mask form, but it is pricey.

I will admit that I dove headfirst into this product just by virtue of the rave reviews all over the internet when it first came out. Thankfully, I've found that it lives up to the hype. I use it at most 2x a week, but usually just once, and let it sit for twenty minutes. You need to use it on …

Treatments (Eye) - Ole Henriksen - Banana Bright Eye Creme

Another day, another review of a product in a tub. For starters, I had very high hopes for this eye cream, although for the most part my only under-eye issue is dark circles that seem hellbent on taking over my entire face. I was surprised by the thickness of this cream, and I agree with other reviewers that it seems to take a lot longer than I would like to sink in. This isn't helpful when …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Kiehl's - Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

This is one of those products that I at some point convinced myself that I loved, despite the mostly underwhelming results.

Let's start off with some positives, though: I really do like the scent, it's sweet but not in way that gives me flashbacks to my preteen in 2000 days. It does have some staying power, though, so you'll smell vaguely like a grown up baked good, if …

I wear this in copper almost every day. I will agree with other reviewers that it is a heavier product, and sometimes if I'm not careful, I end up with kind of flakey bits, that I have to wipe away. That isn't to say that the product flakes throughout the day, I've never had that problem, just that if I'm heavy handed with application, I can tell. I love how easy it is to just …Read more

I'm writing this review for the product in a 200g tub, and so I realize that my usual annoyance at products in tubs is 100% my own fault in this case, but I like having a lot of this stuff on hand!

I have a lot of issues finding lip balms/products/chapsticks that I like. Either I need to reapply them every ten minutes, or they just sort of make my hair stick to my mouth without …

Lotions/ Creams - Mountain Ocean - Skin Trip Coconut Moisturizer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2018

This is the only lotion that has ever swayed me into regularly moisturizing in even the hottest, most humid, most miserable days of summer. And that is no small feat. Right off the bat, it does have a pretty strong coconut scent, but I don't mind it (it doesn't smell particularly fake/saccharine, which helps), and there is some lasting power on the skin. I've also noticed if I put …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel

4.0

Sep/10/2018

I'm pretty surprised by the negative reviews! But like a previous more positive review, I'm writing with reference to the fragrance-free extra-dry skin variety. My skin gets very dry, even in desperately humid/hot/miserable summer weather, and sometimes the thought of using a regular moisturizer is way too much. Creams never really sink in, and the oil I use in the AM isn't quite …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Sep/10/2018

I love this stuff! While I usually stick to micellar water for makeup removal, sometimes that isn't quite up to snuff against pesky waterproof mascara or days when I've really indulged in a ~full face. This balm has a pleasant texture, and you don't need very much at all to really get every single fleck of makeup off. No smells, no irritation. I appreciate the fact that I can open …Read more
