Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Foundation

5.0

Sep/03/2018

This foundation doesn't break me out and that in itself makes it a great product for me. Coverage is buildable. No perceptible scent. The finish can be slightly matte/slightly dewy depending on how you apply it (I apply it with a dry sponge and then spray avene thermal water on as a kind of finishing spray. The result is a slightly dewy finish).

The pump is convenient but means …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

4.0

Sep/03/2018

Love this to fill in sparse parts of my brows before I fill them in more thoroughly with the Anastasia brow powder duo. The spoolie can get dirty pretty quickly so I wash it with my other makeup brushes. I do really like the convenience of it.

Cleansers - Farmacy - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm

Sep/03/2018

Although this is one of the few cleansing balms that didn't break me out in massive acne (instead, just smaller closed comedones), I still didn't find it to be very effective. It broke through makeup decently, but it didn't feel oily enough to really do a thorough cleanse. Instead, I found myself using this 2-3 times over to get everything off—not ideal. It's lightly fragrant …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Mario Badescu - Drying Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2017

Bought this online for around 28$ off some site based in the UK. It's mostly just alcohol, which, admittedly, does do the job of drying out a pimple, but it also causes the skin take longer to heal in my experience. The bottle says not to use this on broken skin precisely for this reason, as it will damage the broken skin and take longer to heal. The same rationale can be applied for …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/04/2016

Great mascara for those of you who don't like the spider-y eyelash look. I find that this mascara actually does separate my lashes, and the pigment is jet black (not some phony brown-black). The applicator does get clumpy after a while. I wipe it gently with a paper towel sometimes to get clumps off.

Definitely lengthens my lashes too. Will repurchase in the future.

Skincare - Face - Avene - Thermal Spring Water

5.0

Sep/04/2016

I use this spray after I pat my face dry with a clean tower (after cleansing) so that when I go in to use my moisturizer, its more effective (if you aren't aware, applying moisturizer to damp skin allows it to be absorbed better).

Alone, the spray makes my skin feel refreshed and it cools down redness after a workout.

Have bought this many times again, despite the …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Oily Skin

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2016

I had some kind of reaction to this product after trying it out once. My skin is dry and clog prone, possibly dehydrated as well. I have tried Cerave's hydrating cleanser but it broke me out and so I decided to try this one.

After lathering it up even the skin on my hands became rough and suuper dry. The skin on my face felt completely stripped, it actually hurt and itched …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/09/2016

I definitely have mixed feelings about this product. The Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA is the second product I've tried from PC. I first tried her 8% AHA gel and it completely destroyed my face- pimples, tightness, itchiness (and no, I'm absolutely certain it wasn't my skin simply "purging")

This product works in moderation for me. Perhaps I have mixed …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover

Jun/09/2016

My holy grail as far as hydrocolloid bandages go. I am a serial skin picker (I know, bad habit, making it worse etc etc. I'm aware) and can't kick the compulsion because my acne has gotten more severe over the years. These are a godsend for sucking and absorbing up all the pus and other gunk from the open wound that is left after picking a pimple. Whether you properly pop your pimples …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Cover Stick

I use the yellow correcting one. Hides discolouration and pigmentation quite well. This is my first colour correcting product and I haven't been disappointed using it yet. The packaging is just ok; I suppose applying the stick directly to your face isn't the most sanitary method but it works decently for me. This was dirt cheap too. Picked it up at a local Walmart.
