Skincare - Face - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum

1.0

This is a thin gel with no glitter or bubble capsules. It has a fairly strong fragrance. It irritates my skin and causes persistent redness. If I apply it in the evening, when I wake up in the morning, my skin is still a bit pink. It's slightly moisturizing, but not as much as I would expect from a hyaluronic acid serum. This might be an OK product for those with less sensitive skin.

Primer/ Corrector - Nude by Nature - Undercover Airbrush Primer

I received a travel size sample of this. In Canada, it's called "Perfecting Primer". I don't normally use primers, but the ingredient list suggested it is hydrating, so I have been using it in place of a daytime moisturizer. It is a thick, rich cream with a fresh scent, which I like. It has a satin finish. It works well with sunscreen, which is less white and streaky than it …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - NIVEA - Care Intensive Nourishment

This was unexpectedly great. It's a fairly thick cream that verges on being an ointment. I used it on my face and it absorbed very quickly and left a natural finish. It didn't irritate my skin at all. The third listed ingredient is shea butter, which is a nice ingredient considering that this product is pretty cheap. The ingredient list is short so it could be a good option for those …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Gallinée Probiotic Hydrating Face Cream

I loved this moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and leaves a satin-matte finish. It seemed to immediately calm my skin and within a day or two the tone and texture looked improved. It has an unusual, natural, earthy smell, sort of like burnt brown sugar, presumably due to the probiotics, which some people might not like, however it didn't seem to linger. The texture is very thin and I would …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - PUR Cosmetics - EYEDENTITY Luxe Firming Eye Cream

I don't use Pur's cosmetics, but I like their skincare products. This is one of the better eye creams I've tried. Unlike many, it did not irritate my eyes. It is thick and only a small amount is required. It provided hydration throughout the day, without greasiness. It worked well under makeup. It might have slightly improved the signs of aging and general condition of the area.

This provides a good amount of hydration and does not irritate or clog my skin. It doesn't do anything miraculous but is a nice, reliable product.

Masks - Fresh - Rose Face Mask

3.0

Nov/03/2018

Like many Fresh products, this is nice, but quite overpriced for what it does.
I like to use clay masks to clear my pores, but they are also drying and worsen fine lines. After a clay mask, I use this to replenish moisture. My skin drinks it up and after ten minutes it is mostly absorbed. It is effective for hydrating. I don't notice any particular toning effect. I find the artisanal …

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes

Nov/03/2018

I used a full size of this once or twice in the past (the gel version) and liked it for daytime use since it absorbed quickly, left a matte finish that didn't interfere with my makeup, and didn't irritate my eyes. After not using it for a while, I bought some again and am not happy with it. I find that it provides very little hydration. Even if I apply it quite generously, the area …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid

4.0

Nov/03/2018

This is an okay daily use high SPF. It has a fairly natural finish. My problems with it are that it can leave white smears which aren't visible until it dries, and that it does not work well with all products. Depending which moisturizer I apply it on top of, it can set and form a rubbery finish that can't be blended, so that if I try to smooth out the white smears, it instead pills …Read more

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Daily UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2018

The main pros for me are that I can use it around my eyes without irritation, and that it doesn't leave a white cast or white smears because of the tint. However, the tint is fairly intense and it is somewhat too yellow for my skin, though it usually doesn't look too noticeable. My main complaint with this is that it is quite shiny, although it is not a greasy shine at least. It's …Read more
