Masks - Freeman Beauty - Cucumber and Pink Salt Clay Mask

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This one does not work for me.
It made my skin itch that I had to wash it off really quickly.
So it did not sit on my face long enough to see any results, other than the itching.

I'll have to pass on this one.

Masks - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Detoxifying Charcoal & Black Sugar Mud Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This mask is quite a dupe for the Origins Clear Improvement.
It gives similar results (clean, clear, smooth skin) but at a fraction of the cost.

The texture is slightly different. Freeman's feels a tad more moisturising on application and does not dry out as much Origins'.

These days I prefer my clay masks not to dry out my skin too much. So I'll go for …

Skincare - Body - LUSH - Fairy Dust Dusting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This dusting powder, Fairy Dust, from Lush is a Christmas 2019 Limited Edition.

It is pink in color and smells sweet like candy.
The sales assistant promoted this as a fragrance that is uplifting, and it sure smells happy.
I've tried the Sleepy dust (lavender scented) at the store but it did not leave much of an impression on me.
Perhaps that one is better for more …

Fragrances - JILL STUART Beauty - Vanilla Lust EDP [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

2 months ago

The following is the description on the website
"The top note is a sweet, indulgent note, the sugary, soft sweetness of pralines stimulating your nose with a gentle rise of melting caramel and coconut. The middle note is mature, fruity and floral, based around a core of sensual white jasmine petals. The fragrances of delightful flowers are intertwined, with refreshing peach and tart …

Lotions/ Creams - Now Foods - Vitamin C & Sea Buckthorn Lotion

5.0

The claims
* Hydrate & Repair
* Nourishes and Renews Dry, Dull Skin
* Paraben Free

I'm into cleaner products now, so I decided to try this lotion for body that is paraben free.

It's summer now so the refreshing citrus scent is definitely welcoming.

Although this is a rather thick lotion, it absorbs well after a while.

Wouldn't …

Highlighters - Makeup Revolution - Liquid Highlighter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

This is my first liquid highlighter, and I'm glad I chose the 'correct' shade.
Bought it online and didn't swatch it prior to purchase.
My complexion is warm with mainly neutral tones and a tinge of yellow, and Euphoric Gold works great for me.

* Formula & Application
There are very fine gold shimmers in this formula and they reflect the light …

Masks - LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Using this product again after being distracted many years by other products.

The formula seemed unchanged.

I really love the light and soothing scent of this gel.
Even though it is a gel, it not sticky after it has absorbed.

I'm trying to streamline the number of products I pile on my face and tried to use this alone.
That wasn't a good …

Lip Treatments - Lucas' Papaw - Lucas' Papaw Ointment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2019

Got this in the more hygienic 25g tube during a recent trip to Australia.
It's my second tube. The first was got also in Australia years ago.

I see this as 'slightly medicated Vaseline'.
It smells fruity and rather pleasant. My tube came sealed which is great to protect the product.

Currently using Papaw oilment to treat an open wound on my face …

Lip Liners - wet n wild - Color Icon Lip Liner Pencil - Willow

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2019

I got the lip liner in Willow, as I wanted something that is nude.
Somehow, this color does not quite work for me when I wear it alone.
It made me look washed out.

But I can see it functioning well as a base upon which I layer my lipstick.
I see it as the alternative to using foundation on the lips to mask the natural color of lips before using lighter colored …

Lip Liners - wet n wild - #717 Berry Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2019

Berry red looks more like a bright red on lips. It is quite close to MAC's Ruby Woo.
But when it is wiped off, the stain on the tissue looks berry red.
On it's own, it is great as a lip liner - goes on easily. it is creamy and easier to use than other lip pencils.
Glad that this pencil is longer than I expected. It runs out fast.

I like it that I can use it …
