Jul/20/2015

I have repurchased this again and again. Currently I have 3 shades because this is my HG concealer for covering acne (along with the Nars Radiant concealer). I find they work for me in winter (dry skin) and in summer (combination).

The packaging makes them great for on the go coverage, however I feel like you lose a lot of product when manually sharpening the pencil. Also, these are a …

Lip Treatments - Malin+Goetz - mojito lip balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2015

This balm is HG status. I have (errr, used to have) chronically parched lips. This stuff is awesome, ever so slightly glossy but my husband could use it. The texture is perfect for being able to wear during the day unlike most luxe lip balms that actually work. Super moisturizing but not oily or gloopy or thick, but a nice light sheen of balm. The scent is great, very natural and by no means …Read more

Fragrances - Byredo - BLANCHE Eau de Parfum

I'm a big fan of this one. light and clean enough to be an everyday fragrance but doesn't smell soapy or synthetic like the Clean line. To me it smells like I'm lathering up with high end bath products in the most posh of European hotels. Clean, bright and luxurious.

here are the notes:
White rose, pink pepper, aldehyde, violet, neroli, peony, blonde woods …

Treatments (Face) - SkinCeuticals - Blemish + Age Defense

Mar/29/2015

I was given this product by a esthetician for my acne prone skin. Instead of helping my skin it gave me lots of little pimples/bumps everywhere I applied it, but especially on my forehead. It broke me out in places I never even get breakouts and didn't seem to calm my skin or help my existing acne.

I have a feeling it's because of the high alcohol content, but my skin is …

Cleansers - Koh Gen Do - Cleansing Spa Water Cloth

Nov/03/2014

I'm not really a cleansing cloth kinda gal, but these are the bees knees. They are too expensive to use daily but are a lifesaver for travel. Really gentle, even on my eyes. They are alcohol free and leave no residue. I am very acne prone and these did not break me out after using them for 3 weeks straight on vacation. I used them on the 10 hr plane ride and my face was not as dried out as …Read more

I love this polish! Definitely a bit, but with a hint of pastel coral. Reminds me of a Stepford wife vacationing in Palm Beach...I mean this in the best possible way. Definitely a preppy Jcrew vibe here. The color is super flattering on my NW/NC 25/25 skin. I have a lot of pink/red undertones in my skin and this makes my hands look nice and tan not too red like lots of other pinks do. You …Read more

Sunscreen - DERMAdoctor - DERMAdoctor Body Guard Exquisitely Light SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/27/2013

This is my holy grail daily SPF. I used to order expensive hard to find sunscreen from France and Japan, but this seriously knocks the socks off the others I have tried. I have acne prone combination skin and this works for me no matter what the weather. Its never broken me out and is not at all oily. It sinks in very quickly and my face looks plumped and tightened (in the good way) after …Read more

This review is for the US version, don't waste your time with the others.

HG treatment for my combination acne prone sensitive skin. This has replaced my prescription Duac treatment (1% clindamycin phosphate and 5% benzoyl peroxide). While Duac did help my acne, it didn't completely dissolve it and it dried my skin out completely, even to seemingly cause premature fine …

HG conditioner, I've been using this for the past 10 years and it's never disappointed me. It really improves the softness and shine of my longish fine, thick pin straight color treated hair. I have been growing my hair out for the past 2 years and I cannot imagine doing it without this little gem. I also have very acne prone skin and its one of the few conditioners that doesnt break …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Super Lustrous in Coral Reef [DISCONTINUED]

Extremely pigmented gloss, beautiful coral color that looks great on my NW20/25 skin. I love pairing this with Revlon pink pop LG year round or by itself over Rimmel East End Snob during the summer when I get a little color to my skin. This is my go to coral gloss, I can't imagine paying more for a HE version.

The only caveat I have it that because the gloss is so pigmented …
