Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

I am generally not acne-prone, but like clockwork, I would get a few giant bright red hormone-related zits on my chin and forehead monthly during my period. Or should I say, I used to get them.

Since adding this product to my routine once per day, approximately 5 days per week, I have not gotten a single zit. Not a one. Again, I am generally not acne-prone, but I never thought …

Treatments (Face) - SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

1.0

May/03/2017

I received a sample size of this product from Sephora, and I still haven't been able to figure out what it's supposed to do or what type of skin it targets. Stinks because I normally love Shiseido products.

Anyway, this product has a ton of alcohol and makes my face temporarily dry and slightly sticky after application. It hasn't broken me out, but I have yet to see any …

BB Cream - Dr. Jart+ - Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++

Another winner from Dr. Jart, provided you have the skin type for which this product is designed. My dry, fair skin loves this. Loves. This. That said, if your skin isn't fair AND dry, steer clear!!

This is the only face product I can use during brutal New England winters and not have to worry about flakes and dry patches popping up. I use it to balance out redness and even out my …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Physiological Micellar Solution

4.0

Aug/08/2015

This is a good micellar water, but the price is a little ludicrous for what it is - a simple, straightforward cleansing water.

I use this solution daily to remove makeup and cleanse my very dry skin, which has a tendency to flake. It is not harsh and does a good job of removal. As with any micellar water, this won't cut it if you're trying to remove heavy duty eye makeup like …

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

Pretty good medium coverage foundation.

Application: You've gotta put in the legwork here. For my dry skin, I need heavy moisturizer plus primer to make this work. I like applying with either my beautyblender or fingers - for some reason, my Real Techniques foundation brush doesn't get along so well with this foundation. Do not attempt to put this on without at least a good …

Polishes - Essie - Fashion Playground

Beautiful color, terribly streaky formula. Three coats in and I can still see spots of nail underneath! I'm a sucker for pastels, particularly greens, so I'll try a white first coat with my next mani featuring this polish to try to help boost the opacity. I love the color and the microsparkles too much in this to give up just yet!

Lip Treatments - Blistex - Lip Vibrance

Best drugstore dupe for the Fresh lip balms I've found yet. This product is a bit more waxy & less creamy than the Fresh balms, but I like the color just as well, it also has sun protection, and it's a fraction of the price.

The color is a sheer rose that is universally flattering on all skin tones. It's fantastic for waking up my face on no-makeup days without …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Vanilla Bean Lip Balm

I am a fanatic about keeping my lips moisturized, but this product dried my lips out to the point of peeling off painfully and bleeding. I stupidly added more to fix the problem. Instead, that made it worse.

The ingredients in this are good and don't normally cause me irritation in other products, so I assume it has to be the added fragrance that irritated my lips. Worth noting …

Treatments - OPI - Nail Envy - Original

Oct/20/2014

HG nail strengthener! I have thin, peeling nails that used to look ghastly all the time due to a nail biting habit (disgusting). I tried a variety of nail strengtheners from Sally Hansen, Orly, and Essie, but none of them did anything to keep my nails from peeling. This product makes my nails significantly harder and stronger, and as a result I can grow them out past the tips which was never …Read more

Liquid - Stila - Perfect & Correct Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Sep/29/2014

Quality, low-stress foundation for those without major skin issues and are seeking light coverage to even out the face and give a nice finish. Despite the "buildable" coverage advertised, full coverage is unlikely to be achieved without using an obscene amount of product, but that's not really what this product is designed to do anyway.

I found application easy enough …
