Nov/08/2018

Unfortunately, this did not work for me. It did absolutely nothing for my skin, and oxidized to a dark amber color within 2 weeks (!) This serum also smells horrible and left a lingering unpleasant odor on my skin during the day. Would not recommend.

Pros:
none

Cons:
No visible change in my skin
Crazy fast oxidation
Smells terrible IMO (and leaves a …

Mascara - Milk Makeup - KUSH High Volume Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2018

As an Asian lady with short, sparse, straight lashes, this mascara was not for me. The brush itself is too big to accommodate my lashes, and I just end up smearing product all over my eyelid. The brush also picks up way too much product for me, so it ends up clumping upon application. It does add volume and length to my lashes, but I find myself having to brush out my lashes and baby this product …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

4.0

Jan/31/2018

This is a beautiful lavender-scented body lotion that I have been using at bedtime. It's moisturizing without being greasy, and absorbs easily. As a lavender-lover, this is the perfect relaxing product to apply all over right before sleep! The only thing I dislike about this product is the slight silvery shimmer that sits on the top of every new jar. It's a fine shimmer (not …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Amika - Perk Up Dry Shampoo

2.0

Jan/31/2018

I bought this dry shampoo after seeing all the positive reviews on Sephora. While I do agree that it works as advertised, and the spray bottle distributes the product well, I cannot stand the strong scent. I am not someone who is typically sensitive to scents, but this dry shampoo is almost like a concentrated bottle of artificial floral-powdery perfume! Definitely better dry shampoos on the …Read more

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Natural Facial Cleansing Pads with Tea Tree Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2018

There are similar products on the market, and this Trader Joe's "generic" works the same, but for the best price! I have combo skin and every so often see a few pimples pop up on my forehead and chin. My go-to treatment is to swipe one of these pads over my problem areas after cleansing, and like magic, I see an improvement the next day! So refreshing, too! I also love that it …Read more

Moisturizers - Andalou Naturals - 1000 Roses Daily Shade Facial Lotion SPF 18

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2018

While I do not use this sunscreen on a daily basis due to its SPF being in the lower range, I do consider it a solid product to keep in my rotation. I typically use this on my face and neck on days where I'm running quick errands and not necessarily exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. It is a thicker texture coming out of the tube, which I appreciate because I find most …Read more

Moisturizers - Glossier - Priming Moisturizer

4.0

Jan/30/2018

I use this in the daytime before SPF and before makeup. It is very light, but provides enough moisture to my combo skin and is never greasy! Take note that this isn't a pore-blurring type of primer like many silicone-based ones on the market. It's definitely more of a moisturizer than a primer.

Would recommend and repurchase!

Pros:
Very light and …

I have been using this facial spray to set my makeup for the past few months. This spray helps my setting powder blend seamlessly with my foundation and skin, keeping my face from looking cakey! Being in healthcare and working 12-hour shifts, this product has really come in handy to keep my makeup going strong all day!

Pros:
Works well as a setting spray, tested 12+ …

Treatments (Face) - Mario Badescu - Drying Lotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/21/2016

This has been my go-to spot treatment for the past few months. It does exactly what the product name says, it dries my blemishes. I apply this to breakouts with a cotton swab before bed, and wake up to pimples that are smaller in size/resolving. While this does not miraculously get rid of acne overnight, it has been a solid staple in my routine that helps speed the clearing of my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Tarte Cosmetics - Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2016

I use this brush with my Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation every single day. The short chubby handle makes this brush incredibly ergonomic, and helps with the overall application of my foundation. The soft, dense bristles make this an excellent blending tool. My foundation blends seamlessly, and I never feel like I need to apply a ton of product!

Pros:
Dense, soft bristles excellent …
