Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm

1.0

9 months ago

I got a terrible allergic reaction from this one. I don't understand, since I've used Burt's Bees lipbalms in the past. They're not my favorite, but in regards to price VS quality I've previously found them to be okay. Well not this time!! I uploaded a photo of my lips after using this. I have a rash on my upper lip, and my lips are so dry now. I will have to rescue them …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Deciem - Hylamide - Finisher Matte 12

12 hour oil free? Not even close.
8 hours? Hardly.
About 6 hours is more like it. After half a day I started to look oily, which is normal for me after only two hours, normally. I applied it as a base product with my fingertips, and with a beautyblender I followed up with foundation. I did not feel the need to finish with setting powder - however I might try this next time, for …

Liquid - Yves Saint Laurent - Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/15/2018

What can I say? I've been repurchasing this for about six years now. It's the only foundation which has ever truly worked for me. I love natural looking skin, and the possibility to wear foundation, even over blemishes and dry skin patches. This allows me to do so, since it's super hydrating and comfortable. The coverage is light to medium, depending on your technique. I set it …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - CLARINS - Hydra Quench Tinted Moisturizer

Apr/13/2018

This is a review of the new Hydraquench tinted moisturizer with SPF 15. It's a BB cream type of product with very light coverage, which can only be built up a little. The colour I got was 00 Porcelain. It's very pink in the undertone, which at first looks super weird on your palm, but when blended out (with a damp beautyblender) it's the most subtle tint of colour.. Another …Read more

Lip Treatments - La Roche-Posay - Cicaplast Levres - Barrier Repairing Balm / Baume Barriere Reparateur

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2018

Like the Cicaplast B5 Baume, this is a true HG product. Goes on smoothly with the hygienic applicator, leaving lips fully moisturized and with a dewy look, almost looking like a blurring primer. After a few seconds the product has sinked in, not leaving a trace, but the lips feel wonderful, plump and comfortable! Not sticky, not tacky, not greasy, not shiny. Just plain heavenly moisture. The …Read more

Foundations - Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

Mar/26/2018

Being an Ordinary fan, I tried so hard to love this product, I really did... but gosh it's so DRY. It makes me look at least 5 years older, settles into lines and dries up all patchy. I have oily t-zone and dry cheeks & eyes. Even with heavy moisturizer underneath AND mixing it with more moisture, it doesn't go on right, it dries me up so bad. I tried everything; with and without …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/22/2018

This was a bit of a wild shot for me, as I only researched a little on ALA. For the price I think it was worth trying, however I'm not sure I will be repurchasing, since the smell is HORRIBLE. It smells like a mixture of burnt plastic and old car tyres melting away, a very chemical and unhealthy smell. For a long time I've been wondering where that disgusting smell comes from in my …Read more

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

Mar/22/2018

What an AMAZING product!!

Feels tacky on it's own and not moisturizing at all, due to the waterbased formula. Also, if you apply too much, it will lay like a white film all over your face. However, if you mix it (even large amounts) with your favorite moisturizer, it's HEAVEN!
It really helps my dry skin, and even fades the appearance of fine lines. Would definitely …

Masks - Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask

Feb/23/2018

I tried a sample of this.. the formulation pilled off my face, neck and chest so much, that I had to remove it with micellar water. I could not stand it! So thick and filled with silicones. You're better off putting some squalane on your face, at least it soaks in, unlike this mess... Also, it contains both Vitamin C and Vitamin A, although in very small amounts, they are still skin …Read more
