Review for Living Proof Perfect hair Day Dry Shampoo - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
This is the best dry shampoo out there! I use this product in between shampoos but also right after because I love the texture and volume it gives me. My hair gets oily quickly, so dry shampoo is the best thing.

Review for Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator With Microderm Exfoliating Crystals - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I received this microderm exfoliator in an BirchBox box for my birthday. I have very sensitive, combination skin so I’m usually very reticent to try new things (especially scrubs) on my face. However, this exfoliator is gentle yet effective and leaves your skin smooth and glowing! The crystals are tiny little granules that buff the skin rather than scratch it and I have definitely noticed that my face is brighter with each use (you can use this product 3-5 times a week, according to the bottle). My skin is smooth to the touch and I find that after using this exfoliator, my skin absorbs serums and moisturizers better which gives my skin an even healthier glow. I have only been using this consistently for about two weeks, so I cannot comment on how it has affected my facial redness, but so far I’m loving the results. I could not recommend this product enough, I just wish I had a bigger bottle!

Review for L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Original Mascara - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
Purchased at: Walmart
This L’Oreal voluminous mascara thickens your lashes and simultaneously clumps them beyond repair. Two swipes of this mascara and my lashes were already too thick to separate, and the more I tried to separate them, the clumpier they got. I do no recommend this product to anyone who wants full lashes without the clump. It was really cheap at about $5, but now I see why. It’s weird because I saw tons of good reviews on Influenster and Google, but I definitely don’t see why after trying it myself. The brush itself is so fluffy that it doesn’t allow you to separate the lashes when you work the brush upward. The product seems to be too thick and a pain to work with. Don’t try this...There are many better mascaras out there!

Review for NYX Butter Gloss - 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Purchased at: Target
I was looking for a new tinted lip balm and came across this in my search. I decided to purchase it because it was super cheap (I think around $4.50) and it came in the mauve/pink color I wanted (“Angel Food Cake” is the color name). I’m so glad I decided to purchase it because I absolutely love this product! The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply and it provides a nice overall color that isn’t heavy like lipstick and it’s not sticky like a gloss. It makes my lips shiny without making them look overly wet, plus it enhances the natural color of my lips. It also has a great vanilla scent to it, similar to a cupcake or baked good. The packaging is fairly compact so it fits well in any purse. It’s a perfect lip product for a “no makeup, makeup” kind of day! My only complaint is that I wish it lasted longer. I find that I do need to reapply fairly often, but other than that.. it’s great and I would definitely recommend it!

Review for Bio-Oil Specialist Moisturizer - 4 months, 4 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I purchase this oil to reduce scars from acne and other injuries. However, I was disappointed in the fact that these scars were never lightened or minimized. This oil also advertises that it moisturizes, which is does a very good job of doing. I only use this product now when my skin is very chapped from wind or dry weather. It helps clear up any flakey and dry skin without clogging my pores. It’s also great to use on dry ankles, knees, and elbows. So, as a scar lightener/minimizer, I saw no results. However, as a moisturizing oil, Bio Oil is great and I highly recommend it. It is pretty greasy and never rubs in. But it does provide a thin layer of oil that seals in moisture and gets the job done. It’s also fairly priced!

This is by far my favorite face scrub to get rid of dry, flakey skin. Plus it smells amazing! I use this scrub no more than once a week and only when I have visibly dry skin that needs to be sloughed off. It is very grainy and exfoliating, so you don’t need to rub too hard to get results. It has a very fresh and pleasant, slightly citrusy (from the apricot) scent. It has a clay-like texture and a little goes a long way. It is very fairly priced, but only available at their semi annual sale—which is a total bummer. If you ever see this for sale, you definitely have to buy it!

Review for: Light more...
I purchased this concealer to cover up pimples and other imperfections. I don’t use it for highlighting/contouring or under eye bags. For acne, it’s great because it’s hydrating and doesn’t leave your acne crusty or dry (which was always a problem for me). My only complaint is that it isn’t full coverage and it doesn’t last all day (unless you use a setting spray, in which case it lasts forever!). I prefer to use this concealer for acne because I feel like it doesn’t aggravate the pimple further and make it grow throughout the day. If it was full coverage, it would be perfect! It’s a fair price as well and a little goes a long way. The applicator makes applying the concealer a breeze. I highly recommend this product to anyone with mild to moderate acne.

Review for tarte™ Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - 5 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
Purchased at: Sephora
I did a lot of research on Sephora and Influenster as to which BB cream, CC cream, tinted moisturizer, etc. I should buy. Let me give some back story..
I recently got off Accutane, but before then I had terrible acne that I couldn’t leave the house without slathering my whole face in foundation. It got to the point where I had a complete stranger say to me, “you would be so much prettier if you wore less foundation” ... ouch. So I’ve decided to lay off of foundation now that my skin has calmed down from the Accutane.
Although my skin is fairly clear, I am still plagued by uneven skin tone, redness, and dark spots (from previous acne scars and sun damage). I needed something that would LIGHTLY cover my face and give me an all over even color, without being cakey, heavy, and irritating. I guess I wanted something to give me that “no makeup” vibe, you know what I mean?
So my searching led me to purchase this tinted moisturizer and I am SO glad that I did! It is just thin enough to even out your face, but it still provides light coverage (exactly what I wanted)! It gives you a healthy, dewy finish that makes your skin absolutely glow. It comes in a range of shades so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Today, I applied the moisturizer at 9AM and here we are at 8PM and my skin still looks flawless. No more redness, no more blotchiness, no more dark spots. It also is not irritating (and trust me if it was, my skin would’ve gone crazy by now).
The coverage, like a foundation, is buildable. So for those days when you only need to conceal a little bit of your skin, you just use a dot. If you have more problematic skin, you can apply more.
I am absolutely in love with this product and I can safely say I have finally found my holy grail tinted moisturizer!

Review for Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer - 5 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
Purchased at: Sephora
I’m obsessed with this primer! My primary concern with regards to my skin is my large pores. I have tried so many primers, high end and drugstore, and I’ve never been more satisfied than I am with this primer! It has a consistency similar to silicone, but slightly thicker. The primer itself is light pink, but it obviously blends into your natural skin once you rub it in. I typically just use this primer without foundation, just to make my skin look flawless! It lasts all day and doesn’t make my skin shiny or greasy. A little goes a long way and even though I don’t typically wear it under foundation, I have in the past and I do know it works well under foundation! It definitely helps my foundation last longer on my nose and it keeps it from sliding off my face. At the price point, this stuff cannot be beat!
