Moisturizers - CeraVe - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - AM SPF 30

2.0

Jul/09/2016

Being a huge fan of CeraVe's normal moisturizing lotion, purchasing the SPF version seemed like it would be a no-brainer to me. The standard lotion is so gentle on my sensitive skin that I thought that this might finally be an SPF-containing lotion that would be kind to my face.

Unfortunately I really don't like this lotion. It's much thicker than their normal lotion …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - SKIN PERFECTION 3-in - Purifying Micellar Solution

2.0

Jul/09/2016

I had high hopes for this micellar water. I had previously been using L'Oreal's genesis gel cleanser which was the most effective makeup remover I had ever purchased, and was looking for a product that was effective at removing makeup and had at least some other benefits to the skin.

Firstly and most importantly, this product is not an effective makeup remover for me in that …

Oh how I love this toner! I find it quite refreshing on my skin, it removes traces of makeup that my cleanser may have missed, but most importantly:

My skin tone is more even, my pores reduced, and my skin is VERY hydrated after use of this toner. It could have been marketed as a moisturizer and I would have been none the wiser.

My skin is very dry and quite sensitive, but …

Styling Products - Live Clean - (Exotic Nectar) Argan Oil Smooth & Shine Cream

I am surprised to read positive reviews for this product. The cream smells wonderful, but even the tiniest amount makes my fine hair look unwashed and greasy. I used it in my daughter's hair and found the same. It does smooth your hair, but also weighs your hair down and gives it that "haven't showered in a week" look. I keep thinking maybe I am doing it wrong and keep …Read more

Blush - Almay - Smart Shade Blush

I loved the idea of the smart-shade blush. I really wanted that kiss of blush without the obviousness of a heavy shade, or the fussing of shade matching.

This product blends in so well there is virtually no evidence of colour on your cheek. In order to build enough colour to have some pink on your cheek, you have to put on so much that it becomes goopy, unattractive, and obviously …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Skin Genesis Pore Minimizing Gel Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2011

I've been using this cleanser on my face every morning in the shower for about a year now. I find that I get consistently clear skin, and I've had fewer breakouts than when using other products. The smell is a little strong, but not over-powering. Pore minimizing is minimal, but noticeable. I have had the pump break off of a bottle before, so the packaging isn't stellar - but I …Read more
