Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Odacite - Black Cumin Cajeput serum

Nov/15/2017

I bought this on a whim and saw good reviews and long story short, I like it and would buy it again. I think learning how to use this oil and what to mix it with really changes how it can help (or not help) your skin. For me this works well all on its own as a strong spot treatment. I get adult chin acne a lot and when I use this on them the pimples are much smaller the next day. I noticed that …Read more

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - My Armani To Go Cushion Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2017

I was lucky enough to snag this in Japan since it was just released a few days ago. I was about to just buy my regular luminous silk and noticed the cushion and tried it, full face. The moment the attendant started applying I knew I was going to buy. It's cooling, goes on very smoothly, and gives a nice glow without being ridiculous, it's very skin like. I find the coverage buildable …Read more

Jul/05/2017

This is review on several Shu Uemura eye shadows and palettes. (I live in Japan and bought all my Shu Uemura goods here over the last 8 years) Skip below for the latest eye shadow review.
First, I can't rave enough about the individual eye shadows. I have 7 of them in mostly mattes and they are very high quality. I wore some of them on my wedding day actually, which is a testament to …

Treatments (Face) - Arcona - Hydrating Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2017

The description of this intrigued me so I bought it and although its nice and I don't dislike it, it's nothing special and certainly not a must have product for me. This is supposed to "compliment my daily hydrator" but I haven't noticed any major wow changes in my skin. Its similar in consistency and smell to Magic White Ice, but slightly more hydrating and soaks into …Read more

Skincare - Face - Arcona - Desert Mist

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2017

Another important step in my morning routine. Desert mist is like a dry oil/serum that has a marjoram/herbal smell to it. A lot of people dislike the scent but it doesn't bother me. One pump is enough in summer, 1-2 in winter. This is my last step in skin care before I apply makeup. I don't use it everyday, but when I runout of it I always miss it so I continue to repurchase. Depending …Read more

Moisturizers - Arcona - Magic White Ice

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2017

This is one of my staple moisturizers in hotter months. I started with the Arcona problem skin kit and noticed I needed some extra hydration. In colder/dried months I use Petide Hydrating Complex (another staple) but its too heavy when its humid, so I bought Magic White Ice and continue to repurchase. This is exactly what it says it is, a non pore clogging gel moisturizer that leaves skin fresh …Read more

Cleansers - Arcona - White Tea Purifying Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2017

Love this face wash, I'm on my third tube. This is very gentle yet gets all the dirty stuff off after a long day. (I use an oil makeup remover first.) The smell is pleasant, a slightly sweet green floral/fruit scent and the tube packaging makes it sanitary and travel friendly, unlike the Arcona bar soaps which are annoying to take anywhere. I started with Arcona's problem skin starter …Read more

Jul/05/2017

I stumbled upon Kjaer Weis (thank you Net-a-porter!) and after watching countless Youtube videos and reading reviews/looking at swatches I took the $$$ plunge and bought the color Paper Thin (FYI I'm between Teint Idol 24H Bisque 310C and 220C, and Luminous Silk 5 and 5.5.) I've been using this foundation for the last week, experimenting really and I'm really really impressed, and …Read more

BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - Dr. Ci Labo BB Cream (Light)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2014

Dr. Ci Labo is a long standing Japanese skincare and cosmetics company started by a dermatologist some years ago. I started with the moisturizing skin gel and liked it and kept buying different products since then. I finally tried the BB cream about 4 years ago and for the last 2 years have bought other brands foundation to try as well. A long story short I keep going back to this BB cream. After …Read more

Crème - Dr. Hauschka - Translucent Make-up

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2014

After constantly struggling with regular chemical foundations breaking me out, or worse giving me small tiny bumps (pityrosporum folliculitis) caused by too much junk clogging my delicate pores I decided to change my skin care routine. A trip to the dermatologist helped with the deep down acne and folliculitis problems (thank you oral meds and high strength topical creams.) After knowing what was …Read more
