Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Raw Spirit Wild Fire

5.0

Dec/19/2016

To me, this fragrance is very much akin to a less costly version (though still fine quality) of Tom Ford's classic Santal Blush. I get a spicy yet clean skinsettling sandalwood with some accents of spices (in the Tom Ford it was cumin, here it seems like it could be also, but I'm not sure) with an almost soapy sensual floral component. A clean but dry but spicy and soft fragrance. …Read more

Moisturizers - Sunday Riley - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2016

In a word, NICE. The consistency of this is right in between a traditional lightweight moisturizer and a gel-cream moisturizer that is typically designed for oily/combo skin types like the Youth to the People Moisturizer or the Belif Aqua Bomb,

This moisturizer contains ingredients to lightly exfoliate (I layer after Pixi Glow Tonic and once a week after Good genes mixed with …

Fragrances - Burberry - My burberry black

I like this fragrance, but I don't love. On paper with the notes of dark rose, patchouli, and amber, I expected to love this, especially for its unique peachy twist. But just as a personal preference, I don't love as much as I had hoped for some reason.

On me and to my nose, the prominent players here are the peach and the patchouli. The patchouli, as rendered here, is …

Masks - Liz Earle - Brightening treatment mask

I am in a steep minority here it seems, but I personally love this product.

I use it mostly in the mornings. Sometimes I'll even use it as a morning cleanser after dampening my face with just water before spreading the product around. Other times, I will mix a small dab in with my Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser to add both more of a brightening (from the fruit ingredients and …

Cleansers - Sunday Riley - Ceramic Slip Cleanser

4.0

Nov/16/2016

A legend for a reason.

I use this as a clarifying cleanse. Mostly in the morning and once or twice a week and perhaps the full week of either my PMS face or of my period where my skin is definitely more breakout prone. In a word, this cleanser is invigorating. Stimulating and deeply clarifying without being too abrasive or too drying.

Though the label says "for …

Fragrances - TokyoMilk - novacaine

5.0

Nov/09/2016

Novacaine is an interesting little creature that I am just getting to know but absolutely adoring. She is a holistic, purely incensy, spicy aroma for a gypsy, a tramp, or a thief.

Okay, perhaps I am getting too carried away here.

Notes for this include a kick of sheer ginger that just adds some fresh almost twangy lemony spice Clove and cinnamon (which make it a great …

Fragrances - TokyoMilk - Bulletproof

Nov/08/2016

"Smoky" and "sweet" are two words that pop up repeatedly in reviews for this fragrance. Most rightfully so. This is smoky and sweet, but without a hint of vanilla. Like a good nonsweet vanilla on occasion, but this is so much more "me" more aromatic, spicy, and dense without being at all cloying or, worse, syrupy.

To me and on me, the prevailing note …

Fragrance - KORRES Natural Products - Bellflower, Tangerine, and Pink Pepper

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2016

THIS PERFUME IS a NEAR EXACT DUPE of MY BELOVED yet long-since discontinued Burberry The Beat for Women.

Both fragrances include prominent notes of cedarwood (peppery and effervescent) and pink pepper. They contained a citrus (this has tangerine and The Beat had Mandarin, which maybe makes this ever so slightly sweeter, but not by much) and bergamot.

I don't think …

Toners - La Roche-Posay - Serozinc

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2016

After hearing many a European (mainly UK-based) beauty bloggers and skincare enthusiasts and doctors recommend this simple yet genius product, I had to give it a go myself.

But before I get into the review, I must say my biggest gripe with this product, and it has nothing to do with the product or its performance itself, but rather its availability. Particularly in e-retailers …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2016

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe I have not reviewed this yet!

I love the house of Jo Malone, having a special partiality to a lot in their Cologne Intense range, especially Velvet Rose & Oud, and I like darker more resinous scents usually. But for a fresh change-up with still some woodsy groundedness, this is what I reach for.

Despite the name Nectarine Blossom and …
