BB Cream - BIODERMA - Sensibio AR BB Cream

Jun/12/2015

This works really well for me. There's only one shade as far as I know: it's a pinky beige and it's slightly darker than my skintone but it's still a good match.
It is a cream, with very good coverage and it manages to hide most of my rosacea marks. The finish is natural and matte but if you look in closely it can look a little bit cakey. Most importantly, it doesn't …

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - Rosaliac AR intense

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2015

This is a very light serum, not very hydrating, absorbs easily, is fragrance-free (you'd be surprised how many products for sensitive skin are not fragrance-free) but doesn't seem to do much else. Didn't seem to aggravate my rosacea, but didn't visibly help it either.
The packaging is good, with an air pump, and without a useless lid. It's a little pricier than …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

Apr/28/2015

I have to keep a very simple skin routine because of rosacea so I tried this cleanser, as it seemed my best bet. It as only 8 ingredients. My skin is not crazy sensitive and it's on the dry side but I feel like this doesn't aggravate it at all and it's best to be safe than sorry.
It has a milk consistency and you can use it with or without rinsing. I prefer to apply it on dry …

Lip Treatments - Dr. Bronner's - Organic Lip Balm - Orange Ginger

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2013

Not a fan, I'm afraid.
First of all, this smells really earthy from the ginger. It is real ginger essential oil smell so it's not cosmetically enhanced to smell like "ideal" ginger. It is very strong and bitter. The orange smells very weak next to the ginger. So I don't find it pleasant to apply. Other than that, both ginger and orange oils are phototoxic. I'm …

Cleansers - lavera - Basis 2-in-1 Cleansing Milk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2013

The most comfortable cleansing milk I've ever used. Brilliant for normal to dry skin types.
This comes in a simple, easy to use, 125ml tube. The product is light yellow, with a milky consistency but not too liquid. Easy to spread and easy to remove. It leaves the skin so soothed and comfortable. It's one of the very few cleansers that doesn't make my skin cry out for a …

Cleansers - First Aid Beauty - Face Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2013

This is not a terrible cleanser but I can't seem to like it.
I'm used to more natural cleansers, that are non-foaming and have creamy textures. I expected this to be creamy but it looks like a souffle, it's very airy and looks very artificial. And, once you apply it, it starts foaming up like mad, so you only need to use a tiny bit.
One of the things I like about it is …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

5.0

Mar/31/2013

Another great lip balm from Burt's Bees.
I don't find it as buttery as my favourite (Pomegranate), but it's almost as good as. Very easy to spread on the lips. I expected the scent to be stronger but it's lighter than the pomegranate, it's a very nice, not overly artificial scent of mango. It tastes a little sweet but not too fruity.
For the number of times I …

Masks - First Aid Beauty - Instant Oatmeal Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2013

I love using this mask. Even though it has no added fragrance, it smells amazingly of oatmeal, possibly oatmeal cookies. It's so delicious, it makes me want to eat it. It has a very thick consistency, cream-coloured and with some tiny bits of oatmeal (I don't find them either useful or annoying). It's not difficult to remove, which is a big plus.
The only reason I won't …

Moisturizers - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2013

I use this cream mostly in my face and neck. Because it can be used all over the body, I expected it to be much thicker but it's only slightly thicker than a lotion.

What I really like about this moisturiser:
- Light texture but moisturising effect
- A little goes a long way
- No fragrance but still smells good (very light smell)
- Very practical to use …

Cleansers - Mario Badescu - Seaweed Cleansing Soap

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/11/2013

I was given a trial size (30ml) of this cleanser to try and overall this works really well. My skin used to be combination-dry, but now it's mostly normal-dry. This has the great advantage of not drying my skin at all (skin feels less tight than when I used my previous cleanser Weleda's almond milk, which is for dry skin!).
It's a green lotion with some exfoliating dark bits - …
