Sunscreen - Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Sunscreen Mineral Lotion SPF 50

I've been on the hunt for a good mineral sunscreen for a while. The couple I'd tried prior to this had left me with streaks or a whitecast or a too-matte complexion. This one gives a little hydration, but overall a smooth velvety feel to the face. The colour is perfect - not too warm or dark for me, but blends out into almost nothing on the skin. Definitely could double as a lightweight …Read more

I bought this in the peachiest shade they have, Peach Pond. I really love this shade - it's not too garishly orange but definitely filled my need for a glossy peach/orange colour.

It glides on really easily and looks really glossy thanks to the moisture core bit in the center. The scent is quite strong, but I don't mind - it's a decent scent in my opinion. Lasts for …

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer

I loved the idea of this concealer - really full coverage with just a tiny amount, big doe foot applicator and all from the drugstore. This had me written all over it.

But I just can't get along with the formula at all. It was really thick and sticky, very similar to the NYX waterproof concealer in the tube, except slightly less oily.

I didn't find that it covered …

Blush - Burt's Bees - Blush Makeup - 100% Natural with Vitamin E

Yes! These blushes are my favourite formula.

I have the colour bare peach and it's a true orange-y peach with a hint of pink so it's not too orange. They have a touch of shimmer but it brushes away easily and leaves you with naturally glowy, blushed cheeks. They aren't really that pigmented, so they work well for fair skin and they blend really easily. They are very …

Moisturizers - Peter Thomas Roth - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

This was a bust for me. It feels really nice going on, like a really light water cream, and makes the skin feel really soft. It was decently hydrating too.
Its downfall was that it broke me out in huge cystic pimples after having clear skin almost 6 months. This was the only new thing I added to my routine so it definitely was this. Not trying it again and I will return the travel size asap.

I like this lotion enough but I think it's marketed totally incorrectly for what it does. It's very very lightweight and not at all suitable as a "night cream" even for the oiliest skin. If you have dry skin, don't bother with this one.

But I have recently come off accutane and my skin has stopped being dry and started becoming oily again. My regular Nivea …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser

This stuff is great! I just came off accutane 6 months ago and my skin started getting oily again, which led to small closed comedones and breakouts (no cystic acne thankfully). My 2% BHA from Paula's Choice simply wasn't cutting it anymore to control the breakouts and oil production.

This stuff basically cleared up all the little breakouts overnight after washing my face …

I'm so disappointed by this product! The shade is so perfect for my light olive-neutral skin but this leaves me with inflamed acne after every use, despite having been on accutane. I just can't risk breaking out in deep, painful acne ever again.

I have legitimately never been this disappointed by a product before in my life. Most things, even if they work terribly, at least hint at what they were trying to do. This one left me confused and feeling like I had been scammed.

This was from a collection with Isabel Marant that appeared at my local drugstore one day. The packaging looked really intriguing, very bold in a …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup SPF 20 Normal/Dry Skin

I wish this product worked for me, I really wish it did. I love the finish, even on my normal skin, because I don't have to set it and it lasts forever. It really blends into the skin and doesn't look mask-like, while still providing pretty good coverage.
I think the best part about the foundation is how spot-on the shade Buff is for my skin. I have very light olive Italian skin …
