Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - Dream Wonder Pressed Powder

1.0

Aug/29/2014

I used to use the Dream Matte Powder from Maybelline and it was my Holy Grail until it was discontinued and replaced with this piece of crap. It's honestly the worst because once you apply it, your face is orange. It's like putting a bronzer all over your face. I actually had two of these because I thought that the first one was just the wrong colour and made me look like an oompa …Read more

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Pressed Powder ] [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2014

This was the first pressed powder that I bought and continued to use it for 3 years until my heart broke and found out that it is discontinued. I had it in beige (2-2.5), and applied it with a powder brush from Sonia Kashuk. If I went a day without it, I could feel my foundation on my face (idk if you know that feeling, kind of sticky), but wearing this fills out the little cracks to even out my …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2014

I used the Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment before, and wanted to try this out. I apply it almost every day on all of my spots, but I don't really see a difference. It's been 3 months and no change. I do remember better results with the Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment, but I'll probably go find another spot treatment. I usually look on Paula's Choice and …Read more

Has anyone noticed how disgusting it smells? The reviews seem really great, but I honestly can't get over this strong, off-putting scent. It also feels weird on my face. It's not smooth, but I don't know how to describe the texture. My fingers just don't run nicely across my face (only did this to see how it is, but I don't recommend touching your face, especially with …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2014

This foundation is kind of thick, but it applies on my face nicely. It has build-able coverage (remember to let the 1st layer settle in) and still looks quite natural for the second layer. I can still somewhat see my blemishes, but it evens out everything. I would say that it lasts for 12 hours, but if you have oily skin like mine, the foundation could come off whenever you touch your face. When …Read more

I have been using this for so many months, and it is a decent, but expensive product. There were days when the foundation looked great on my skin, and others when they didn't. It is pretty thick, and sometimes watery. I pump it on the back of my hand and when it comes out watery, I just tilt my hand so the watery stuff separates and runs off. It gives a medium coverage because I can still …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Normaderm Pro Mat spf 15

Out of the Vichy Normaderm products that I bought with this, this was the only one that pleased me. I use it everyday before I go to bed. I can't use it before I put on my foundation because it doesn't help it go on smoothly because they separate, even if I wait until it settles in. I wish I could because it really helps moisturize and keep a lot of oils away.

Treatments (Face) - VICHY - anti-imperfection concentrate

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2013

I used two tubes of this, and it is an okay product. Like others have said, it works slowly. I guess it depends on your skin, and my combination acne-prone one can have stubborn spots. It did help some minimize, but not completely disappear - and it took a while to do so. I believe it tells you to use it twice a day, and after doing so, a lot of the product can go away faster than your spots.

Cleansers - VICHY - Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel

Sep/16/2013

I bought this with the Vichy Normaderm Promat Hydratant, and Anti-Imperfection Concentrate. This hasn't really done anything. It cleans my face, but it doesn't play a big role in clearing up my acne on my combination skin. I use it in the morning, and before I go to bed. It doesn't tingle, and I like how it's foamy. Just be sure to not scrub your face too much/for too long …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Reversa - 8 percent Glycolic Acid solution for Oily and Acne-prone Skin

4.0

Sep/16/2013

I bought this on a whim (for 34$ at Shoppers), and I'd like to say my money was well spent. My combination acne-prone skin can be sensitive /sometimes/, but it didn't tingle or burn, unless I had an open wound. I use it twice a day (for a bit more than a month now), and some blemishes have gone. I still have a lot, and this doesn't stop breakouts (especially around my menstrual …Read more
