Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2017

I hate to admit that I like this cleanser a lot. I resisted buying it for ages, only having used sample sizes, but finally caved during the VIB sale this year and I got it in a Fresh set.

The texture is similar to my trusty Cetaphil - quite runny in consistency - but way more luxe and therapeutic to use. It reminds me of being at the spa (it smells like Skoah products!) and is just …

I hate to admit that I like this cleanser a lot. I resisted buying it for ages, but then they did a 20% off promo during black Friday so I finally caved. I'm used to using Cetaphil, so this is a lot thicker in comparison. It spreads easily over the skin and I use it with my Foreo Luna mini - the two in conjuction work well together to clean my skin without stripping it. I use about two and a …Read more

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

I really like this serum. I purchased 4 oils/serums from The Ordinary and this is my favourite by far. I use this at night underneath my moisturizer and it noticeably hydrates my skin, improves absorption and I am less oily than usual when I wake up in the morning. It is tacky upon application but dries down very quick. You only need a few drops to cover your face, and it's under $10 for a …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof

Jul/03/2017

I have very stick-straight, sparse eyelashes that are hard to curl, and it needs all the help that it can get. My HG mascara is the Maybelline Falsies Flared in Waterproof - but I had noticed that the waterproof version was no longer available in my local drugstores. So I picked up the Rocket mascara in hopes it would give me a similar effect.

On application, I noticed that it held a …

Moisturizers - Nature Republic - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

Jun/12/2017

My friend got me this aloe vera gel as a gift while she was on vacation in Taiwan. She described it as a multi-use product, using it as a moisturizer, face mask, and hair mask. While I don't use this on my face or hair, it's an excellent body moisturizer for the summer. It feels sticky upon initial application, but once it dries down that feeling disappears. It feels very cooling and …Read more

Moisturizers - Marcelle - Hydra C Ultra Light Matifying Fluid

Jun/12/2017

This unfortunately did not work for me. I purchased this when Sephora stopped carrying my HG Boscia T-Zone Treatment. Like the Boscia fluid, it goes on light and dries down matte, which is nice. However, this does not keep me matte at all - within 30 minutes the shine is back in full force on my nose, and I have to blot about once an hour to keep it dry. The finish can be off at times: even after …Read more

Scrubs - Derma E - Essentials Microdermabrasion Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/16/2017

I purchased this after my trusty Neutrogena Deep Clean face scrub was reformulated and no longer did the job, and I am so glad I did! As far as manual exfoliators go, this is the best one that I've ever tried. The granules of sea salt are super fine, and you can really feel it working as you are massaging your face. It is abrasive, but just enough to really get a deep clean - I have …Read more

Masks - GLAMGLOW - Supermud Clearing Treatment Masque

May/15/2017

I got this mask in a Christmas set that I purchased a year ago, it came with a full size Thirstymud and a travel size of this. I tried this on my full face at first and didn't like it - it was far too drying, but I found that when I used it on just my t-zone it really helped to clear the gunk out of my pores (you can actually see the dark grey spots where the oil is absorbed, oddly …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Cleansing Micellar Water

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2017

After using Bioderma for years and being reluctant to try a new micellar water, I finally caved in and tried the Simple cleansing water. It has been much hyped about on YouTube and I wanted to see how it performed in comparison.

I would say that it is almost an exact dupe. On my skin, it feels exactly like the Bioderma - it gets off my excess makeup and feels clean afterwards (no need …

Hair Treatments - Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2017

I have used this product religiously for the last 5 years. I use it as my daily conditioner and I work it through the bottom half of my hair (concentrating on the ends), leave it in while I do the other steps in my shower routine, then rinse out. It leaves my hair feeling so soft and smooth. Every time I try a different conditioner, I go back to this one and remember why I love this product …Read more
