Lip Treatments - Weleda - Everon Lip Balm

4.0

This really is a great “chapstick,” but I find it too waxy to use before applying lip color so I mainly use it at night or when exercising. (Before applying lipstick I use Nuxe or Labello or good old Blistex.) Maybe because it’s a harder consistency the Nuxe or Labello sticks, it tends to last a long time. I do love using organic/natural lip products and this Weleda product smells really good.

Treatments (Eye) - Unlisted Brand - Biossance

May/29/2018

I wish I had returned this product to Sephora. I bought it because a specialist I usually trust raved about it, but it
* didn't reduce puffiness
* didn't reduce dark circles
* didn't feel hydrating even when I used a ton of it
* has a lot of extra plastic in its packaging.
Save your money.

Sunscreen - Biotherm - Creme Solaire Anti-Age SPF 30

May/23/2018

Tested this over the course of four weeks and I don't like it at all.
- Has a really strong perfume scent which makes my eyes water and takes at least 10 minutes to fade away.
- Takes at least 30 minutes for the major shine this sunscreen gives to die down.
- Pills on my face no matter how I prime (applying it directly to cleansed skin or on top of an essence or on top of a …

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment

Jun/10/2017

I do not understand how this product works or if it, alone, is responsible for the change in my skin over the past month, but so far so good.

Yes, it smells, but that sour-like odor fades within five minutes. It hasn't faded any of the dark freckles (sun spots?) that I have on the high points of my face and my décolletage and I haven't noticed my pores getting any smaller …

Treatments (Eye) - Fresh - Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2017

I'm in love with this eye cream (even though it comes in a pot), but my usage is limited to deluxe samples. Boy oh boy is it expensive.

What I love:
+ I can use it even when the skin around my eyes is raw/incredibly sensitive (happens sometimes from allergies or if an acid treatment migrates up) and it calms it down.
+ The consistency is lovely and it hydrates my very …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2017

Once again, I had high hopes for a mascara and was left disappointed. I tested this one only once, but that was enough.

The good:
+ Because it's waterproof, it held my lashes' curl, which was amazing.
+ With just two coats, it provides decent volume and length.
+ With three coats, I'm sure a more dramatic look can be achieved.

The …

Treatments (Eye) - Darphin - Wrinkle Corrective Eye Contour Cream

Jan/25/2017

I enjoyed the process of using this product -- it is in a pot so to keep it sterile, I used the little spatula each time -- but I don't think it had any effect on the skin around my eyes. It promises to be a "potent anti-wrinkle treatment with peptides, magnolia and hyaluronic acid...to instantly restore radiance...and recapture...a smooth eye contour". It definitely did not …Read more

Brows - Sephora Collection - Brow Builder - Waterproof

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2017

This new waterproof brow builder from Sephora is horrible. I thought the applicator would be like a mini mascara wand (like the applicator in Benefit's Gimme Brow). Instead, the applicator is like a fuzzy Q-Tip, difficult to control and lays down too much product. The product itself comes out in clumps. It seems like a niche product just for people who want to impersonate Joan Crawford or …Read more

Moisturizers - Yes To - Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2016

This product is a reminder that I must resist impulse purchases and wait to read MUA reviews. This moisturizer (this is without SPF) is not good. In fact, it stinks.
- The aroma is overwhelming. (I love the scent of cucumbers, but this is too much.)
- It's not moisturizing: It makes my skin look shiny and feel dry. Insane.
- About half the time I applied it, it provoked a …

Dec/08/2016

I was really excited to try this product. I think I got caught up and in the celebrity endorsements. I have been testing it, thanks to a deluxe sample, for a little over a week and came here, curious to see what others thought of it. When I saw that the ingredients weren't already listed, I decided to type them in and now I know I will not buy this product. When I scanned the ingredient …Read more
