In theory, this is almost the perfect product for me. I wanted to love this so much. But after using it for a couple of months I am ready to throw this in the bin. Unlike the other tow reviewers, I didn't get oily skin or bumps. But it piles. After 3-4 hours, this stuff just rolls of my face in small piles. Very unattractive little piles, at get on EVERYthing, from my clothes to my phone to …Read more

This is the funkiest, weirdestbeauty tool I think I will ever own. This thing kills acne bacteria through blue light. Sounds unbelievable? Believe it, because this thingy really does the job. I love it.
Not for the heavy duty acne sufferers, unfortunately, because you have to zap each individual spot up to four times, but for those of us who have less severe acne it is ingenious. It is a …

I like this!
No creasing (and that is normally a big issue for under-eye concealers for me) and great staying power - lasts a full day.
When I use my Bobby Brown corrector I need to prep the skin with the Bobby Brown Eye Cream - anything else doesn't seem to work with the corrector's formula) AND set the corrector with poweder, but this concealer needs no prepping and no …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

Another HG from The Ordinary.
I use it in the AM, preferably combined with Buffet from the same brand. Then add moisturizer with SPF and/or a tinted moisturizer. This works really well for my dehydrated, sensitive, early 40's skin.
This is such an inexpensive little workhorse! I have switched it up with a few similar products to test and compare, including the Hylamide Booster Low …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%

This works so well for my skin, which is fair, sensitive with both breakouts, pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles (early 40's).

I have used it nearly every night for at least 6 months now. My sensitive skin tolerates it very well and it is so efficient in shutting down developing pimples or blackheads. Whenever I have used BHA instead for a few days, my chin starts breaking …

Tinted Moisturizer - Charlotte Tilbury - Unisex Healthy Glow Hydrating Tint

I am liking this product, don't know if it will end up as one of my HG products, but it has potential. I have fair skin and use a little bit of self tanner every few days. When I don't, this product is not enough on its own to give me that necessary extra bit of color. But on top of a very subtle selftan it works beautifully.
I do find the product overpriced, but so is the rest of …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Pukka - Radiance Serum

When I received this serum as a gift I was overjoyed to get to try skin care from Pukka, who make great organic tea among other things. The tube contains a whopping 50ml for the same price of other serums, most of which are 30ml.
The serum is golden in color and quite runny, at the same time the tube's hole i quite large, which means you get a lot of product out with just a little …

Hating this. My skin feels horribly dry only moments after appying this socalled serum. My guess is that this is due to the combination of bitter orange water and alcohol denat. which major parts of it. Will discontinueuse and I am happy this was not a purchase but a product I have won, since the price point is pretty outrageous (GBP35/USD55).

Full listy of ingredients (copied from …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant [NEW FORMULA]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2014

My skin deals well with both BHAs and AHAs but I try to keep the concentrations of the products I use on the low side, so that I don't aggravate my skin which can sting if I overdo it - especially in the exfoliating department. The 1% lotion formula of this product suits me really well and leaves me with smooth, clear skin. Only my stubborn craters on the chin need more serious …Read more
