I love that this cleanser is available @ bluemercury so it’s easily accessible. I went through the entire bottle and was not impressed with the results. I used it as the second step in my double cleanse. About 3-4 pumps gets everything off.
It smells wonderful! I really did enjoy my nighttime routine because of the strawberry scent. However I did not feel like it cleansed well hence the 3-4 …

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

3.0

12 months ago

Picked up the cute trial sizes of this and the hydrating gel at Sephora. I usually do better with glycolic acid toners not gels but read good things about Framboos so why not?
I applied it after cleansing my face at night, 1-2 pumps and nothing more. The gel is light and not overly sticky. It definitely treats breakouts, minimized the size and redness of pimples, but did not do much to …

Skincare - Face - Arcona - Gentle Solution

3.0

12 months ago

When used every night, this exfoliating treatment tightens and brightens surface skin. I did not notice any effect on older hyperpigmentation, maybe I needed to use it longer (I used one bottle) or perhaps the Solution in its place. It treats active acne effectively, but does nothing for blackheads. I used it in conjunction with the cranberry gommage, 1-2 pumps onto dry skin immediately after …Read more

Skincare - Face - Arcona - Cranberry Gommage

Bought it because I read it increases or optimizes the efficacy of the Gentle Solution treatment. Therefore, I used the treatment at nighttime and the gommage in the morning. Based on my use, I believe it did help accelerate results. My skin was brighter and smoother. However, over time the treatment is not as effective which then sort of nulled the gommage.
The scrub is gritty (but not in a …

Cleansers - Sunday Riley - Ceramic Slip Cleanser

3.0

Good cleanser but not suited for daily use. I think the inclusion of clays with a harsh surfactant and essential oils eventually does more harm than good. As a second cleanse, it was very good. I used 2 pumps and it removed everything and then some, leading to surface whiteheads. However, when it reaches peak performance, around 1 week of use in my case, my skin was definitely clearer and soft …Read more

Cleansers - Kahina Giving Beauty - Oil Cleanser

Great pre-cleanse product. I have used it as my sole face cleanser but it seems to perform better if I apply it before getting into the shower, by this I mean it rinses off better vs washing my face over the sink. Maybe the shower steam helps?
If I use it at the sink, I can feel a slight film even after splashing my face several times. No worries, I follow it with Yuli Halcyon.

I bought this product during kahina’s #anfgb sale. I use it every morning although I may start using it at night as well. It moisturizes the undereye area reducing fine lines. The best part is that it imparts a dewy finish (no light diffusing particles) which is helpful to minimize dark circles. No tackiness or other irritating effects. No permanent change in undereye circles.

Masks - Pixi - Glow Mud Mask

Cannot attest as to the effectiveness of this product as an all over mask but it works wonder on pimples when applied overnight. I think it would be too drying all over the face unless one has extremely oily skin. I replaced Kate Somerville Eradikate with this and SR Good Genes. It is part of my travel essentials because a small amount does the job. Will repurchase when I run out.

I have only purchased the trial size of Good Genes; I gave it a try and realized I did not need the larger bottle. Have found it extremely effective on totm large under the skin pimples; much better than Kate Somerville Eradikate. It softens skin overall but I haven’t seen any improvement on older post breakout hyperpigmentation, which was my primary reason for buying it. No difference on …Read more
