Moisturizers - Vanicream - Moisturizing Skin Cream

8 months ago

I have verrrry sensitive skin. since I was worried vanicream would be too heavy for me, I mixed it with vanicream lite. from the getgo, I loved how completely simple and non-irritating this lotion felt. but after a few weeks, I started breaking out in little red bumps and whiteheads. I have adult acne, but it tends to be more like hormonal cysts. the zits happening from the vanicream were …Read more

I have verrrry sensitive skin. from the getgo, I loved how completely simple and non-irritating this lotion felt. but it didn't seem moisturizing enough. after drying down, my face would feel tight. after a few weeks, I started breaking out in little red bumps and whiteheads. I have adult acne, but it tends to be more like hormonal cysts. the zits happening from the vanicream were …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Complete All Day Moisturizer SPF 15 - Sensitive

Jan/15/2019

***UPDATE 2019*** looks like they changed the formula AGAIN. about 8 years ago, they angered their faithful customers because they changed the classic formula -- the worst part being that they swapped the zinc / octinoxate sunscreen for something else. many people hated it, including myself. after a major online backlash, they changed back to their classic formula. well, I just opened a new …Read more

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Facial Cleansing Oil

1.0

Sep/19/2016

it cleans and rinses very well, and like another reviewer noted it doesn't make my eyes feel blurry afterwards. however, one star because I'm just THAT annoyed by the totally unnecessary added fragrance. not only do I hate the way it smells, but I'm worried it will freak out my sensitive skin. added fragrances belong in NO facial care products ever.

I'll give this …

Lip Gloss - wet n wild - Megaslicks Balm Stain (all colors)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2016

I'm surprised at how good this is. I've been testing this out for nearly a year and found that Truffle in Paradise has actually replaced my previous favorite stain (revlon balm stain in crush). I can throw it on real fast, and I love the color. it's kind of a dark rose. I will say that the balm does slide off somewhat quickly but it leaves a pink stain that's bold but not too …Read more

Concealers - Dermablend - Quick-Fix Concealer

Dec/15/2015

I thought this would be HG, as it has a reputation of having the best coverage and also has SPF. it barely covers better than my cover girl concealer, and the texture looks really gross and chalky. I didn't choose too light of a color (it's just a touch darker than my CG choice), so that's not the problem. I think the titanium dioxide is the culprit. I should have guessed that …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

Oct/15/2015

not ultra gentle. this stuff made my eyelids burn, even though my skin is currently in good condition. I looked up all of the ingredients, and it turns out that it contains Lye (Sodium Hydroxide), which is a known irritant. it's low on the list of ingredients, but why include it at all when it's not necessary? especially since the goal is to make a product touted as "ultra …Read more

Lip Treatments - Sephora Collection - Color reveal lip balm in Unique pink

Sep/22/2015

I've tried about a million of these. this one has a lot of color without being too much, and stains nicely. but the feel is too oily / slippery when I'd rather these things feel like a balm. the fragrance is cloying. the price is right though.

lipstick queen's frog prince is much better than this, but by far I prefer jane iredale's forever pink. too bad …

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Frog Prince

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2015

this is quite an improvement over hello sailor. it has just the right amount of color and stains just a bit. The moisture / protective feeling lasts longer too (but could be better). I could apply this without a mirror and alternate between this and a clear lip balm all day w/o fear of it building up too much, or wearing off unevenly. You really have to slather it on though, so it's pretty …Read more

Lips - Maybelline New York - Colorblur Cream Matte Pencil & Smudger

Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2015

this stuff is total garbage. the texture feels so dry and gross, like I put eyeshadow on my lips. I've tried other matte lipsticks that were way more comfortable than this. as far as lasting power, it was like a regular lipstick, not long wearing at all. I got Partner in Crimson, which is pretty but transfers quite a bit. I know that should be expected of a red, but since some other …Read more
