This was merely okay. I didn't break me out or irritate my skin, but I didn't see nearly as good results as I do with my Sunday Riley/Drunk Elephant/Votaty oils, so this is a pass. The price point is decent, but I'd rather pay more and see better results.

This product is so overly artificially fragrant that it irritated my skin. It burned when I sprayed it and my skin is persnickety, but not usually that reactive. There are better mists out there. Save your face. Save your cash.

This is a pretty gentle exfoliating mask. I have a number of chemical exfoliants in my rotation and this tends to get trotted out when my skin is feeling more delicate. I see this as a good option for people who are new to chemical exfoliation, because it is a gentle introduction, or for more advanced users who need something less aggressive every once in a while.

I got it as part of …

Moisturizers - Dr. Jart+ - Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer

The idea behind this moisturizer is better than the execution. It's a delightfully light texture that soaks in really quickly into the skin. However, it's not hydrating enough to even be a day moisturizer for me. Even when I flout the brand's recommendation and really pile it on, it hydrates for an hour and then it's gone. I've tried layering this over a hyaluronic acid …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Pixi - Hydrating Milky Serum

I love a good hydrating serum, but I found this to be both too thick in texture and not actually hydrating enough. Not to mention the fact that dropper packaging in the worst idea for a thick non-runny serum like this. Product collects around the dropper in the bottle and the opening is very narrow. So getting the dropper back in the bottle is tough without losing some product off the side when …Read more

Hair Treatments - Shea Moisture - African Black Soap Dandruff Control Pree-Poo Rinse

I recently started coloring my hair because the ever-increasing numbers of white hairs at my temples were getting really annoying. My scalp went crazy and I started getting a ton of flakes and a lot of itch. Most dandruff shampoos are harsh and chock full of sulfates and other nasties that can wreak havoc on color. This really soothes and conditions my scalp and after several uses, I've …Read more

I've repurchased tube after tube of this hydrating cream and will happily continue to do so. I always rub some of this from mid-length to the ends of my hair and it really helps to smooth and condition it. I also love that it can be used on dry hair, which means I can use it on non-wash days to soothe my dry ends. My only complaint is how expensive it is in the States. In France at the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

I'm a skincare junkie and had to try one of the Vitamin C products from Deciem's The Ordinary line. This did literally nothing and I used it consistently for months. On the other hand, it didn't ruin my face? I have other Vitamin C serum I prefer and will discard this and go back to them. Life's too short for skincare products that don't do anything.
