My skin background:

I have large pores, oily T-zone, sensitive skin.

PROS:

- Very natural and good-for-you ingredients. Love Jurlique for this.

- Pleasant rustic oat scent, nice texture

CONS:

- Even after I used this in a hot shower …

Lip Treatments - By Terry - Baume de Rose

Apr/04/2013

The packaging is quite unhygienic. Also, the combination of SPF actually has been shown in scientific research *NOT* to be good. The combination is oxinoxate with avobenzone. This degrades faster than other sunscreen combinations. Meaning that it is not as effective as a sunscreen. This was published in a scientific journal as the article title, "Unexpected Photolysis of the Sunscreen …Read more

I have been a faithful user of this eyeshadow for some years now. It is easy to apply, and enhances natural beauty without looking like I'm wearing "too much." I often just apply with my fingertips. It also lasts quite a long time (although you should throw out eyeshadow after ~3-4 months, for sanitary reasons). It creases a bit, but that's because I tend to have oily eyelids …Read more

I have sensitive skin and like this product. It does not cause tingling or burning like some other products do. I like that it has physical sunscreens instead of chemical sunscreens.

It has a nice pump dispenser. The consistency is not thick, which I like. It is pretty liquidy which allows me to spread it easily over my face. I lightly rub it into my face, doing portions at a time. It …

Liquid - KANEBO - Lunasol Modeling Water Liquid Foundation

This goes on smoothly on my face, easy to blend, becomes matte pretty quickly. Hides my undereye circles very well as well as pimple scars. Absorbs very well. Actually has SPF as well (SPF17/PA++, I think).

It is VERY mattifying which you may like if you have oily skin. I imagine people with oily skin would really like this. I have combination sensitive skin and my skin was just fine …

Tinted Moisturizer - COVERGIRL - CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer Fair to Light

Oct/10/2010

This really makes my skin look flawless, dewy, and healthy; not matte. It's very light-weight texture that spreads easily and smoothly. It's also a great price and matches my skin tone PERFECTLY (I'm very fair/light-skinned and many products end up being too pink or too orange on me). It really sinks into my skin (combination, sensitive skin type) without flaking off. It …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Sweetsation - Organic Lip and Face Balm with Argan, Calendula and Sea Buckthorn

Oct/06/2010

So far, I really like this product. My lips seem to always be chapped, crackly and dry, and I have to re-apply balm a lot. However, this is different from other lip balms in that it actually seems to *treat* my lips. In other words, it's not just a silicone layer that temporarily protects my lips from the wind and harsh environmental elements. It seems to heal my lips with all of the …Read more

BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - Meishoku Moist Labo BB Essence Cream SPF40 PA+++ in Shade

Oct/05/2010

This seems too thick for my skin to use as a foundation or tinted moisturizer all over my already combination oily face, so I use it as a concealer for my under-eyes and pimples, which it's very effective and good for. It has dimethicone so I can't use it every day (seems that I'm sensitive to dimethicone and tends to clog me up?), but it helps conceal and provide very good SPF …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Credentials - RosaCalm Skin Serum

Oct/05/2010

In summary, YES, this product DOES seem to work-- I used it for about 2 weeks. But for my acne-prone skin, it did seem to cause some pimples due to the dimethicone (?) perhaps, and I stopped using it because I'm wary about some of the ingredients like the Diazolidinyl Urea. I still need to do some more research on how much of that they actually use, before deciding to buy again. I marked as …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Pangea Organics - Eye Cream

3.0

Oct/05/2010

On its own, this product doesn't work too great. It doesn't feel like it really gets absorbed. However, when I layer it on top of the Pangea balancing oil, it sinks in so well and gets rid of my dark circles and lines SO MUCH! The only caveat is that I start to get small pimples sometimes around my eyes-- I was not cool about that, so I am on the look out for something that can give the …Read more
