Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Native Deodorant

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/02/2018

I normally use the rock crystal type of deodorant, because I like to avoid aluminum and parabens, but sometimes I would like a more emollient, nicely scented option, so I started looking. An internet search led me to Native deodorants, which are also paraben/aluminum free. There are several different scents, and an unscented option, but given the price of $19 USD, I thought I'd just try …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - LilyAna-vitamin C serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2018

The product line I usually use is no longer locally available, and seems to be getting harder and harder to find online, so I decided to move on. Summer's coming (eventually, I hope), and I don't like a lot of heavy creams and moisturizers on my face when it's hot out, so I was looking for a serum especially, and maybe a more intensive treatment for nighttime. I found LilyAna …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Modern Twist Kajal Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/19/2018

I am the sort of person who prefers to emphasize one thing on my face at a time-I either wear a strong lip color and minimal eye, or a strong eye and a nude or light lip. Even on those strong eye days, though, I prefer to tightline or to line my waterline, so I can make my eyes stand out without looking like I just stepped out of an 80s time warp. So....I searched for a liner that had plenty of …Read more

Moisturizers - Derma E - Firming DMAE Moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2018

Bought this on closeout at my local grocery store-they stocked this brand in their organics section. I was out of the moisturizer I usually use at the time, and I thought I'd give this a try, or maybe keep it to use in a pinch. And....in a pinch is definitely the only time I would use it again. It didn't break me out or anything, and it absorbs fairly quickly, but it really …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Avon - Avon Anew Ultimate Eye Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2018

I haven't used Avon products in a long time, but I happened into some of this eye cream a few weeks ago, and I actually like it. It is a fairly thick cream in a little pot-no applicator, so you have to use your fingers to apply, but I usually do around my eyes-easier to make sure I'm not stretching or pulling the skin. The cream has a faint tangy odor, but it goes away and isn't …Read more

Moisturizers - Avon - Avon Anew Ultimate Day Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2018

I do not usually use Avon products-not that there's anything wrong with them, I just don't often happen upon an Avon seller in my area, and the products that I have tried in the past just didn't stand out enough in my memory for me to be running around looking for them. They weren't bad, just nothing to write home about, and that is a good way to describe this moisturizer. …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Soap

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2018

I have recently become aware of the Shea Moisture line of products, which are available at many drugstores and supermarkets in my area. I have very sensitive skin, which means anything I use on it has to be gentle, so I thought I'd give their soaps a try, since they have no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, or mineral oil, and I also like that they are certified organic …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2018

I have combination skin, oily in the t-zone, with visible pores high on my cheeks and tiny visible capillaries around my nose, and I prefer to cover these up without looking like I'm wearing a mask. Whatever I use has to have some staying power-I live in a climate that can get very humid in the summertime, and I don't want to have to worry about touching up ten times a day. I …Read more
