Toners - Avene - Gentle Toner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

22 days ago

Horrible. Toner caused me to break out in little, tender bumps all over my face. It may have a short ingredient list but most of the products out there that are labeled "gentle" and "for sensitive skin", including Avene, don't work for me. I was suspect of the powdery stuff that I had to shake before using the toner, and I was right.

Concealers - Surratt - Perfectionniste Concealer Palette

4.0

I bought Shade 2 (Violet Powder) to cover a vein on the outer corner of my eye, and for spots. Both shades of concealer layer well with fingers or sturdy, non-fluffy brushes, and both have the same texture. I like that the product is stiff yet malleable, and doesn't settle into whatever fine lines I may have. (I tried it on my under eye area to test, although I don't typically do dark …Read more

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - Moist Diane EXTRA Damage Repair Treatment

2.0

This is a review for the Damage Repair Treatment conditioner, not the shampoo. I disliked this as a conditioner, since it did not condition, made my hair frizzy and oily, and took too long to rinse out. Since I didn't want to waste it, it worked better as pre-shampoo treatment on my coarse, colored hair. However, I don't use pre-treatments so can't compare it to others. This …Read more

Moisturizers - La Mer - The Moisturizing Soft Cream

1.0

6 months ago

La Mer's Soft Cream is not for my skin type, which isn't dry. When tested on hands, the product spread easily and did not feel thick. On my face, it's another story: I felt suffocated by a filmy layer, and I got whiteheads the same day I used it. I expected a heavy product with La Mer, but I didn't expect to feel comfortable. Because of that film, and the fact that this …Read more

Blush - Surratt - Blush in Duchess

Great blush. Looked too light in the pan, but shows up softly on my light, neutral olive skin. Really looks like just part of skin and adds a touch of brightness. There's enough contrast between my natural coloring and the blush. To me, it's a cheek blush/highlighter without the fake shine.

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Deep Cleansing Bar

4.0

This cleansing bar cleans well and leaves my face squeaky clean. Since I've dislike foaming cleansers in tubes and pumps from US drugstores, this and Neutrogena's cleansing bar for acne-prone skin are one I choose when I need to grab something quick. Feels and cleans better for me than the much touted Dove bar for Sensitive Skin.

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Senka Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

2.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I need to feel squeaky clean--not moisturized--after using a cleanser, but this was just irritating and drying--and caused breakouts. Perfect Whip's cleansing power is average; it appears to rinse clean yet leaves a feel I dislike. I'm one that loves foaming cleansers and suds, but I'm learning that if the foam is too dense/exaggerated and the paste is too slippery, some …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Sydney Grace Matte Shadows

These shadows, although pigmented, feel heavy on my lids and slide off, causing irritation. Body chemistry/eye skin type is YMMV, but I seem to do better with shadows with a lighter feel.

Sunscreen - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteguard Mineral Powder Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Best sunscreen powder I've tried so far. I like that the SPF is not higher than 30 , since any higher for me increases chance of breakouts and gives me a false sense of security . Although I wouldn't wear this while skiing all day or to the beach, with this I don't get new freckles when out mid-day under the sun for two hours; I freckle very easily. I apply on a moisturized …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Mentholatum - Melano CC Intensive Anti-Spot Essence

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

The oily, serum-like feel of this product made me feel hesitant to use it as first, but it is effective at lightening spots from pimples. Due to the oiliness of Vitamin E and my sensitivities, I won't be trying it as an all-over treatment for the face. For the price and gentleness, I would repurchase for dark spots left by bites or cuts on my legs, since it would take me a few years to …Read more
