Moisturizers - Boscia - Tsubaki Beauty Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

29 days ago

I decided to try this despite it having clove and orange peel oil in it - clove oil can be irritating to some skin types and orange peel oil can increase sensitivity to the sun so I try to avoid these, but I could barely detect any scent at all when testing it so the amounts of the fore mentioned, and the lavender oil as well, are very little.
Putting this side, this is a decent oil blend …

Misc Beauty Tools - CLINIQUE - Makeup Brush Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I thought this was to be a spray & wipe kind of cleaner, but the directions say to spray the bristles a few times, massage it through, rinse, wipe dry with a tissue and lay flat to dry. Tried it on a stubborn foundation brush and it removed some staining I couldn’t get off with zote soap. So in my book this is a great product, plus it is unscented too. I plan to use this to quick clean the …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Parian Spirit Brush Cleaner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have tried a lot of brush cleaning products and methods, from home made & premixed sprays to soaps (but not any specialty soap like beauty blender solid) and this cleans a brush faster and more thoroughly than them all. But #@%$ is it $$$ - I got the set shown above from beautylish and it didn’t break the bank but is a splurge enough that I won’t use it all the time. I plan to use it to …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I feel BHA’s are a “secret weapon” because any time I am having a breakout anything with salicylic acid clears my skin in a day or two. I have dry skin and feel exfoliation is important because my skin will look dull if I skip this step for too long, so using this product a few times a week keeps things glowing as well. I like this product because most salicylic acid products are aimed towards …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen - Gentle Lotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I used to use the other variations of Anthelios one could find in U.S.A. drugstores, but there are sooo many sunscreens available that work just as good and are less expensive, so I strayed from the brand. In recent years LRP has been making a big presence and have found their toleriane products a good choice for my skin. I am also sticking to mineral sunscreens from now on so I was so excited to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Marc Jacobs - The Bronze - Bronzer Brush No. 12

This brush is absolutely amazeballz and every bit of hype out there! It is fluffy soft on the skin and blends like a boss. Just a dab in your big pan and the gazillion bristles pick up product... this brush is not for silly little pans of bronzer. The smooth, seamless black ferrule and silver metal cap at the end of the brush make it luxurious. It was indeed $$$ but considering all of the …Read more

Stick - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Stick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I think this foundation is amazing! It applies super easy, blends well, and doesn’t dry out my skin. I can sheer it out or build it ip on areas where I want more coverage. I think the only complaint I could have (other than the price) is it doesn’t have any sunscreen, but it’s not that much of a big deal to use a sunscreen underneath because it hasn’t pilled on me. It’s nice to travel with too,

Moisturizers - Bobbi Brown - Extra Face Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Expensive? Yep. The most $$$$$ oil I have ever purchased. But I think it’s worth it. I use it when my skin is feeling really dry or when I’m in the mood for a little treat. A dab on my cheeks (where I get the driest) and I let it soak in for a few minutes, then spread what hasn’t absorbed over the rest of my face. Oh, and the smell... it is divine. The lavender overpowered the blend when I first …Read more

Palettes - Jouer Cosmetics - Bouquet D' Amour Six Shade Blush Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I fell in love the moment I saw this blush palette and immediately ordered it directly from Jouer. They did an excellent job carefully wrapping it in their custom tissue paper, cushioned it well and included a hand-written note.
The palette itself is cardboard, a little bit chintzy to me, like an ABH palette. It is embossed with a raised pattern that seems like it would get easily destroyed …

Bronzers - Jouer Cosmetics - Sunswept Bronzer Duo

5.0

4 months ago

I have the duo with the shade name of "light to medium". I ordered it directly from Jouer and they wrap everything up well (like beautylish does) with custom tissue paper and a hand-written note.
The compact itself is beautiful, it isn't chintzy but sturdy and built like a high end compact. They don't say how much product is in it on the website, but the total net weight …
