Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Multivitamin Hydrating Face Booster

1.0

Aug/26/2018

This product is very irritating (especially near my eyes) and not particularly moisturizing. Left my skin with a strange texture; if I run my finger across my face after applying the serum it will drag (even after layering a moisturizer). It has glittery particles in it that I assume are designed to make your skin look either "glowy" or more even by reflecting light. I want a product …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2018

Y'all tried Neutrogena. It says it was developed for the most dry and sensitive skin, but it is oddly irritating the most sensitive part of my face. For the rest of my face it's simply ok. After I rinse I still feel the need to apply a serum under my moisturizer (something I only like to do at night). Nowhere near as moisturizing as the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. When I run out of …Read more

Staple in my arsenal. This is my secret weapon for acne because unfortunately being in your 30s and breaking out is still a thing. This stuff works, EXTREMELY well might I add. I use it once a day at night (or every other evening depending on how close to my period I am).Treats breakouts quickly, and helps keep my skin smooth and new acne from forming. It only cost me a few bucks, and every …Read more

Scrubs - Clean & Clear - Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub - Oil-Free

Jul/21/2018

This is a scrub? Oh okay if you say so...

Sarcasm aside, I am willing to give credit where credit is due: this is a good cleanser. I don't care for the menthol or whatever is causing that cooling feeling, but it does get my skin nice and clean without feeling dry. However, I bought this because I was looking for a topical (mechanical) exfoliant. This wasn't it. The …

Cleansers - Aveeno - Moisturizing Bar

Oldie but goodie. I think I have been using this on and off for about 20 years...more recently "on". It is not a bar that provides any suds for me, but it does a great job of cleansing my skin without leaving a film or drying it. I wouldn't try to use this to remove makeup though.

Masks - Shea Moisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask

Apr/15/2018

This used to be dope. Yes it does not "dry" in the sense that most clay masks do, but it was still very effective at treating my acne without drying my skin. However, Shea Moisture decided to water this product down and increase the price. Too bad. This was the last product from their company I was willing to buy. I'm just going to make my own clay mask now and add tea tree oil …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 cleanser

Dec/27/2017

I cannot wait to run out of this product. It does not cleanse my skin very well when I am not wearing makeup, so I can only imagine what it would feel if I was (I always remove my makeup with cold cream fyi). When I first started using it it worked okay. Then I started using toner and realized just how much grime was still on my skin. My recommendation: try the Cerva foaming cleanser instead. …Read more

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil

2.0

May/21/2017

I bought this in two colors, Sleek Onyx and Smooth Charcoal. I regret both.

I don't think gel liners belong in pencil format. It is difficult to control and keep the end sharp. Every time I start to use it the end gets rounded and makes it difficult to control the width of the line (which means I would have to keep on sharpening it).

2/5 because the color looks …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Nov/19/2015

It's really nice for scrubbing your back...and bottom for that matter. However, it's not really usable on any other part of your body unless you fold it into a smaller size. This is a great investment if you have a problem reaching all over your back. It's much cheaper than any brush I've seen. However, if you don't have a problem reaching you're better off …Read more
