Moisturizers - ORIGINS - High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched renewal cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2014

I used the oil-free version of Night-A-Mins for about two to three months (an entire jar's worth). I have recently quit using it, however, because it has caused my forehead to break out and it also caused an increase in blackheads. Upon waking up, my skin did look softer (though not by much), so the effectiveness is questionable...especially when it is doing more harm than good …Read more

Conditioner - OGX - Tea Tree Mint Conditioner

3.0

Jul/12/2014

The saving part of this product for me is the smell, and that it is a light-weight conditioner.

I love the smell, and am a huge fan of mint. As far as a conditioner is concerned, I would not consider this an effective conditioner unless you have a light shampoo or oily hair. It does not help with frizz, but I also live in an area where if you step outside it feels like you're …

Shampoo - OGX - Hydrating + Tea Tree Mint Shampoo

Jul/12/2014

I have used this product (and its matching conditioner) for about half a year. I have tried the other ones as well.

The tea tree mint shampoo for me is best served as a clarifying shampoo. I personally love the scent (reminds me of mint chocolate chip), and am not bothered by it.

Then again, I also love mint chocolate chip ice cream, so that may have something to do with …

Treatments (Eye) - Simple - Soothing Eye Balm

May/06/2014

I've used two tubes of this and have had a below average experience with it.

The product is a gel-like consistency, so it's not heavy. However, if you have a dry eye area this product will do nothing for it (except tease it with barely there moisture). It does help with redness, though. As far as bags, wrinkles, and circles? No benefit.

The product also lasts a …

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion

Apr/30/2014

I have given this product about five months of use and I THINK I'm done giving it chances.

The product is good, but not for me. What I loved about this lotion was how it melts into a watery consistency and moisturized well. Even in Texas it did not FEEL particularly heavy. The smell was pleasant, but went away quickly.I never felt sticky after application and the dispensing of the …

Moisturizers - Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Creme

Apr/27/2014

I used this product for about two months. I applied this all over my face, but now use it sparingly on my eyes.

Initially I liked this product, but living in Texas quickly came to realize (the first day I wore it), that I CANNOT use it for daytime wear. I won't forget that day because my partner kissed my forehead and said he could TASTE the oil on my …

Sunscreen - Mineral Fusion - Brush-on Sun Defense

Apr/27/2014

I LOVE this product for an spf. I wear it to the beach, to the pool, etc., and do not burn. It is transparent, does not break me out, and actually I think it helps even out my complexion which is of course an added benefit.

The PRODUCT itself is fantastic. The main problem I have with this product is the packaging. The brush it comes with sheds, and it is rough on the skin. If you have …

Skincare - Jack Black - Double Duty Moisturizer SPF 20

Apr/27/2014

I've been using this product for close to three months now and really enjoy it. The smell I would imagine can be off putting; I don't particularly mind it and find it dissipates quickly.

What I really like about this product, though, is that it is a moisturizer that has SPF in it that does NOT break me out. I have been searching for a long time to find one that does both and …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Total Face Brush

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/02/2013

I have been using this brush for a long time because I am stubborn and don't know any better, haha.

The brush is scratchy, the bristles shed, and the brush has detached from the stem of the brush itself. This happened within the first three weeks of owning the brush I've probably had it close to a year). I paid a dollar, so I expected a dollar product. I've been …

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Concealer

Oct/02/2013

I have this concealer in neutral: fair-light.

While it is not a bad concealer, I would not go out of my way to buy it again just because I have since branched out and tried other ones that I prefer and give a truer match to my skin tone (NYX, Makeup Forever to name a few). I feel that it is average, and similar to other concealers at the drugstore.

I like that the concealer …
