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

This little product is definitely something I never thought I needed until I had it. I never even thought about getting a sunscreen in oil format, let alone a oil in stick format. I've seen/used sunscreens in liquid form, powder form, stick form, but never quite like this. For a while I was embracing a more matte type of skin, but I was noticing my skin was becoming parched more and more …Read more
