This sponge sounded like a dream come true. First of all, it is the most darling sparkly purple color! It is said to not soak up foundation, limit germs, work just as well as other makeup sponges, last longer, they donate to coral reefs and to top it off? It's a Canadian company (proud Canadian here!) So after all of these selling points, I was sold, and I put in an order pre-official …Read more

I usually prefer physical sunscreens to chemical sunscreens, but this was an impulse purchase when I swatched it in store, and saw the low price tag of 20$CAD for 90ml. This stuff was light, smoothing, and disappeared right into the skin in no time! I had also heard many good reviews on Japanese sunscreens so I figured why not. I couldn't read any of the ingredients because it was all …Read more

I bought this serum to use on days/nights when I'm not using retinol or vitamin C. My skin can get dry when I only use retinol/vitamin C so I like to give it a rest every other day. On those days, I like to use some type of hydrating serum to nourish and soothe my skin. I saw a review that said that this was a great accompaniment to retinol to prevent irritation, and this is also marketed …Read more

I need to start out by saying that I used this as a facial moisturizer, I have dry skin and I use retinol which makes this more evident. I also have skin that is prone to clogging. I have to say I love this stuff.

The texture of this is very thick and balm-y. It is a little bit hard to spread, probably because of the beeswax in it, but it is also this ingredient that creates a …

I've gotten to an age where my skin runs on the dry side, and I live in a climate where the temperatures drop to -40 degrees so I face the freezing weather outside (which can cause dry skin) AND the heaters indoors (which can cause dry skin). I also use retinols, vitamin C and acids which sometimes can make things worse, and when I misuse these ingredients, it can make things horrible. …Read more

Preface: I use this as a facial cleanser.

I've been trying to pare down my skincare regime and stick to simple and gentle products. I didn't want a cleanser that would dry out my skin, and I heard good things about it from one of my favorite YouTubers - Karima McKimmie so I decided to give it a try.

There is really nothing wrong about this cleanser. It is a …

Although I'm a bit of a skincare junkie, and I'm new to Vitamin C. Prior to this, I was experimenting more with acids, vitamin B, and retinols, until I finally made my way to Vitamin C. This was my first Vitamin C serum and I absolutely love it.

I use this in the morning exclusively as I use retinol at night. I actually LOVE putting this stuff on. It has the viscosity …

I originally went to the GA counter to try on their now discontinued liquid bronzer. I was very weary of bronzers that were too orange, or just too dark for my skintone, and GA is my go-to for base products. While trying the liquid bronzer, the sale associate also showed me how I could use these new Neo Nude powders as a bronzer as well. While I did not buy it on the spot, it left quite an …Read more

Bottle-less shampoos and conditioners have been trending, and I was excited to give them a try. I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum, so conditioner is a MUST. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations for this conditioner but it turned out to be a happy favorite. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair …Read more

So the idea of bottle-less shampoos has been very trendy lately, so when I ran out of shampoo, I was excited to give this a try. For reference, I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair that slippery feeling. I tend to get dry scalp, so I told the sales associate I needed …Read more
