Cleansers - Pacifica - SEA FOAM Complete Face Wash

Mar/14/2018

This is a pretty simple, gentle foaming cleanser. I enjoyed it as my second cleanse cleanser, but I’m unlikely to repurchase. There are other water based, foaming cleansers that I prefer.

This cleanser never made my skin feel stripped, tight, or dry, and my skin always felt clean. If you want a basic foaming cleanser, this one is fine. There are better ones, but for its cruelty free and …

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

Mar/11/2015

I love this!
Excellent coverage that does not feel heavy at all, blends well, and has physical sunscreens (which are the only ones I can apply to my face). There is a slight citrus scent to it, which I find interesting and strange, but it is not bothersome or strong, and it fades very quickly. It sets nicely on the skin, gives a nice glow. The texture is like a gel-cream, and it feels a bit …

I have very sensitive, dry skin, and this cream was of little help. It stung my face horribly, and it didn't give me any hydration or moisture. On top of its ineffectiveness, the fragrance added to this product gave me migraines. As a person who is sensitive to scents and prone to migraines, I did smell the sample jar, and when I asked I was told that the scent does not linger, but that is …Read more

This product does have an odd scent, like cucumbers, but it's not unpleasant. It doesn't bother me at all, and it dissipates once the product has been absorbed into my skin. I find that a small amount moisturizes my dry skin really well, and my skin feels smooth and soft. My makeup applies beautifully over it with and without a primer. It doesn't bother my skin as some reviewers …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Tarte Cosmetics - Maracuja C Brighter Eye Treatment

This cream is very moisturizing, and in a short period of time (about a week), it really does brighten the undereye area. A small amount goes a very long way -- I just have to pat the top of the cream with my finger to get enough for both eyes. I love this eye cream, and I will continue to repurchase and recommend to others.

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Oh, Lola!

To me, this mostly smells like nice, fruity soap, and I don't pick up any specific notes -- maybe strawberry and peony, but it all seems to blend really nicely to give a solid, pleasant fragrance. It doesn't smell too "young" for me to wear it, and I don't think the scent is so fruity that women who are older than I am couldn't also wear it confidently.
On on …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Full Lash Bloom by lashblast

This mascara performs mostly how Covergirl claims it will -- great separation and length, soft feeling lashes. I don't get as much volume from it as the claims suggest, but I like the way my lashes look and feel when I use this mascara. I may or may not repurchase, but I checked yes because it is something I would buy for myself.
The formula is pretty dry, and I was concerned about …

While I do like this cleanser, I *probably* won't repurchase. It removes face makeup OK, but I find that I need extra cleansing for eye makeup. I normally use a makeup removing wipe (Yes to Cucumbers), then this, and my normal cleanser, so the fact it doesn't remove ALL makeup in the first go isn't a huge thing to me. That said, though, this cleanser is great for when I'm too …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

Dec/07/2014

I dislike the combination of the wand with the formula of the mascara. I don't find that it adds a lot of volume, but blackest black is really nice and dark -- a perfect black. I find that it makes my lashes feel a little crunchy, but it does give me great separation and length, and because it's so black, I like it when I'm wearing dark eye makeup, so I don't necessarily have …Read more
