My Review:

I have combination skin but more on dry side. I use this twice in a week and I love the glow that it gives me. It’s a very mild scrub which contains honey and oats. Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants. It is great for slowing down aging. It also boost your complexion is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow while Oats removes the dead cells, irritation, and redness, leaving a soft, moist skin.

To start with, first I cleanse my face and then spread this mask all over my face until it is opaque. I leave it for 15 minutes. It does not dry completely so before rinsing my face I gently massage my face in circular motions to exfoliate the skin with the oats. Lastly, I wipe off with a face. Voila!! say hello to beautiful, soft skin!

It helps to restore the moisture and remove impurities. I totally love how my skin feels after I use this product.

Here is a setback! When you apply, it really stings a lot for a while. The sting settles to a tingling sensation after a while and then it’s totally gone

It has a strong honey-oat smell. It comes in a tub with a screw lid and  I am already planning on what I could do with the empty container, once the scrub is over 😛

Pros:

  • All-in-one, easy to use.
  • A little goes a long way (doesn’t dry off).
  • Makes skin soft
  • Restores and moisturizes skin
  • Totally cost efficient.

Cons:

  • Smell might seem overpowering.
  • Stinging feeling

My Reviews:

I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and this is probably one of the best drugstore finishing sprays out there. It definitely makes my makeup last longer. It gives my makeup a nice matte finish. It doesn’t last all day but it makes it last longer than if I wasn’t putting it on. I would recommend putting it on before and after makeup because it makes it last a little longer. This setting spray is superb. Not only is it good value for money, it actually works! I apply it over my foundation, then again after I’ve added powder/blush etc and my make up lasts me a good 14 hours.IMG_0525

 

Pros:

  • Best spray mechanism. It produces finer mist than UD or Skindinavia.
  • It gives a matte finish, I mean very matte. My face stays matte 12 hours later (I have dry skin, but imagine that it would work well for oily gals too).
  • While being matte, it doesn’t make me look flat or dull. My skin looks and feels velvety.

Cons:

While the mist is finer, it takes a long time for the product to sink into the skin. It just sits on top of my skin for almost a minute. I found that weird. After a minute, everything is well absorbed and it looks great. I usually give my face a quick dust of NYX HD Powder just in case to make sure that my face is completely dry.

Tip: You have to make sure that your makeup is all good before spraying it. Once you put it on, it sets your makeup solid, so trying to fix your makeup after that will be next to impossible. It will not budge and any makeup that you put on top will seem patchy.

EOS Lip Balm:

This lip balm contains Vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil to keep your lips kissably smooth.100% natural flavor

Vitamin E Serum In Oil:

I have been using this for more than three months now and this is one of my favourite face oil which I use every single night.My skin feels recharged, replenished and softer. During winters skin tends to get dry and I personally experience this problem and by using this oil every night my skin feels smoother and soft.

Stila Liquid Lipstick:

This is by far my all-time favorite lipstick and I am obsessed with the way it goes on liquid and dries matte finish-all without drying your lips. Once it dries you can touch your lips and it won’t stain or rub off either. Stays all day long.

Mac Studio Fix Foundation:

This is my favourite foundation. It gives full coverage and lasts all day long. The quality and longevity is amazing. Perfect foundation for me to use during winters with a little of SPF. It has SPF 15 and be it summers or winters sunscreen is a must. So this foundation is best with minimum SPF.

Real Techniques Miracle Sponge:

I love how this sponge blends both of my foundation and concealer flawlessly. This gives me a natural finish and blends every product. In my opinion it is better than the beautyblender since it is cheaper, great quality and has a flat side so you can set the product better. Highly recommend this.

Hope you enjoyed !

Thanks!

My Review:

I would highly recommend this product to everyone. It cleans your face better than any other product I have found. It doesn’t dry your skin out like other facial cleansers. It has a fresh clean scent, which I like better than those that smell like medicine or alcohol. If you’re going to buy facial cleansers, spend a little more and buy this. It’s well worth the money

It’s a cream cleanser which feels very soothing on my skin; it definitely feels like I am rubbing thick lotion on my face which might seem greasy but this product is oil free which doesn’t clog pores.  I like this product very much because it removes my makeup without having to using a makeup remover wipe ahead of time

The product claims to be penetrating and refreshing, which is definitely something I notice every time I use it; it definitely feels like its going into my pores and cleaning out all the makeup and dirt out of it.  The refreshing part is definitely straight on, when I rub in this cleanser it has a “cold” refreshing feeling to it, and once I wash it off my face feels so fresh, very soft, and very smooth.  I will continue to use this product for as long as I can, I definitely go through a bottle every month, normally I use this once a day (at night time) on the weekdays and twice a day (morning/night) on the weekends.

I recommend this product to anyone out there; I believe its refreshing enough for dry to oily, to combination skin.  I believe it is soothing enough for individuals with sensitive skin, yet strong enough to deep clean the dirt off your face!  I also think everyone can benefit from this product especially since it removes makeup so well and without effort – that you will be saving a lot of money not buying makeup removing wipes!
