HORRIBLE ALLERGIC REACTION. I got this in a gift with purchase at Nordstroms and I used a tiny dab of this around my mouth, jawline, and chin. Application felt hydrating and silky! However, 20 minutes later I noticed little red bumps and a few white bumps forming, I ran to the bathroom and washed it off. I shrugged it off and thought I solved the problem. Throughout the day my skin became itchy …Read more

HG face oil! I have acne prone, oily/combo skin. I have always been an oil-free obsessed person, afraid of breakouts. I was so so scared to try putting an oil on my face, however this stuff is life changing in the dead of winter! I use this around my mouth and laugh lines.

PROS:
-Absorbs quickly into the skin, hydrates severe dry patches
-Scent is addicting! …

This cleanser came in a gift with purchase and I absolutely love this for removing makeup! I take my eye makeup off with the Target Up & Up brand eye makeup remover and then I use a dime sized amount of this cleanser! I love how it lathers but also feels creamy and not drying. It really removes all my stubborn Estee Lauder double wear foundation. I have swiped a clean tissue to dry my face …Read more

Neutrogena reformulated my HG oil-free spf15 daily moisturizer so I had to scramble and find a replacement because I am allergic to the new formula. This moisturizer had so much potential!! I used it for about 5 days straight. Application was amazing! Feels refreshing and hydrating, quick absorption. However, I think this made me begin to breakout by the 5th day. I discovered tiny WHITE …Read more

I have oily/combo skin with dry areas around my mouth, sides of nose, and in between eyebrows. My main problem with this moisturizer is that it doesn't do the job. Upon application it feels amazing! Cool, refreshing and hydrated!! BUT, 15 min later my dry areas feel tight and in need of more hydration. Also, I notice this made my oily areas MORE OILY! Although the product helps to mattify …Read more

MAKE SURE you cut the bar into cubes! For hygiene purposes, I highly recommend cutting the bar of soap into cubes so you can store away excess soap in a dry, clean place (A ziplock bag) You do not want to use they entire bar on your face at once!
I originally bought this soap in hopes it would deminish my hormonal acne. I have oily/combo skin and I get lots of little red pimples. I like …

Amazing for yellow undertoned skin! I'm NC15 in mac and the shade Vanilla is a perfect match! I always struggle to find foundations yellow enough for my Asian skin. I love the formula for winter and when my face feels dry! However, this foundation started to make me break out over time. I think the dimethicone that helps it glide smoothly during application, slowly clogs pores after …Read more

Mac Studio Fix Fluid VS. Estee Lauder DW
Similarities:
-SCENT: both smell like home interior paint
-COLOR: ELDW in Sand is a very close match to MSFF in NC15. NC15 is slightly a smidge lighter
-strong yellow undertone! Great if you struggle to find drugstore foundations with enough yellow. Great for most Asian skintones like mine!
-PACKAGING: No pump on either. Both 1 …

Best for hydration, not meant to prolong staying power IMO. This primer pairs great with matte foundations on oily skin girls! I started using this primer with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in Sand. The finish of EL DW is amazing, porcelain-like finish. I have gotten many compliments on my skin wearing this foundation. When I want a slightly more glowy/natural finish, I use this primer …Read more

My #1 Foundation! I wore this foundation nearly everyday for a full year and I am still in love with it! Doesn't break me out, makes my oily/acne prone skin look flawless like porcelain! A waitress paused in the middle of my order to compliment my skin. A little goes a long way! A full year later and I have only used half the bottle! Full coverage, matte, blend quickly though! (it dries …Read more
