Review for OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum® - 1 week, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I bought this mini at Sephora, curious to see if the hype was worth it. I bought this, because the strong vitamin C in this serum, is supposed to "brighten" scars, and help hyperpigmentation. While I will say the small and consistency of the serum is wonderful, hence the 2 stats. I started using it for 2 weeks straight, then all of a sudden, I started getting huge bumps under the skin. Not (closed comedones, well those too) I l already suffer from those anyways. But no, this caused pimples under the skin that couldn't be popped. I have oily, acne prone skin, and this product was a big no no. I will try anything once, but my skin hated this. So what did I do? I have it to my husband, and he absolutely loves it. He just finished hit mini bottle actually, and wants another one lol. Just shows you all skin is different.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent! Dark Circle Eye Cream - 1 week, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I got this eye cream, on the 21 days of sale at beauty. I got it half off, and was super excited to try it (A True skincare junkie, and anti aging preventive freak) so I purcshed this as soon as they opened the doors. I have now been using this now for a bout a month and a half, and honestly, it's not a horrible or bad product at all. My main issue, is the fact alcohol is one of the first ingredients, and ALOT of skincare I know has alcohol in it, but having alcohol as one of the first ingredients is a red sign, especially if you have very dry skin. I have oily, so it's not enough alcohol to dry me out. I apply twice a day, morning and night, under my eyes, by either dabbling in under my eyes with a pinky finger, and I the corner. Otherwise, for deeper absorption, I use m6 real techniques skincare roller eyeball took brush, and use the cold metal ball to massage in. Depending on the products I apply BEFORE I apply this eye cream, depends on its reaction to the other ingredients. Sometimes it causes zero hard, and actually feels good under my eyes, and helps my concealer blend even better. Other times, it slightly burns, and everything I apply over it, or with it, seems to burn even worse (sense the alcohol) all skin is different, so I'm not trying to change your mind. I'm just staying my personal opinion, and what I've seen from it.

Review for SUNDAY RILEY Space Race Fight Acne, Oil + Pores at Warp Speed Kit - 2 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
One of my all time skin care favorite sets. I have been using the UFO oil, The Martian gel water gel toner, and the silver mask consistently for about a year now. I have very oily, acne prone, skin with closed comedones (flesh colored bumps) and this set has always helped my face. I cleanse my face, tone, apply a essence, then apply my Martian gel toner. Next, I pat in, not rub, my UFO oil, and twice a week, I use the sulfer mask. This is one of the best kits for acne. Everything is natural, so the scents are very herbal smelling, which I love. The UFO oil, and the Martian gel water toner lasts for quite a long time, so it's very worth the price. The mask doesn't have nearly many as uses, but love the results after using it. The sulfer in it draws my closed comedones (closed pores) to the surface, so I can use my comedone extractor to extract them. If you have mild acne, and oily skin, this kit is definitely for you. If you have severe acne, then i wouldn't recommend this kit, due to the condition not being able to be healed with this kit, but needs something stronger. I use my Sunday Riley products in conjunction with other Sunday Riley products. I use the Luna oil, and the good genes lactic acid treatment. Sunday Riley products are very good, and very expensive. If your new to Sunday Riley, my advice would be to invest in one of their kits, to test the products and see if their worth the price for your skin. I will continue to use the UFO oil, the Martian gel water toner, and the sulfer mask, even when I run out. Don't rub the oil in, pat it in. My skin is in a lot better shape when using my Sunday Riley products. Pricey, but worth it.

Review for SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Wash & Scrub - 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
This little guy is actually a pretty decent exfoliator. The African black soap line is a pretty good line, especially for problematic skin. I usually don't use drugstore due to ingredients (read your labels) but African black soap is a natural remedy for problematic skin. This exfoliator should be used no more than 3 times a week. Over exfoliating can cause irritation and more acne. I have the African black soap, This exfoliator, and the mask, and when used all together consistently, you will get more balanced skin. Though this doesn't "cure" acne, it will help prevent more acne from appearing. I use this exfoliator about twice a week with my other skincare (Pixi, Mario Bedoscu) and my skin has never been in better condition, and I'm 28. If your looking for something to balance your skin, and prevent acne, this little guy is a good choice. If your looking for all your acne to go away, this will probably not be enough. Read ingredients carefully when purchasing skincare people. Skincare brands purposely put ingredients like (Mineral oil, dimethicone) which block pores in their skincare to cause more irritation, hence forcing you to purchase more. If skincare brands made miracle skincare products, they would go out of business. Coming from an oily, 28 year old with HUGE pores, and closed comedones (flesh colored bumps under the skin) your best bet is to watch what your putting on your face. Now that I look at ingredients, my face has never looked better, almost a clear face, and I've never had a clear face. When you pay attention to ingredients, it does a world of good. Trust me, I know my skincare.
Review for OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil Magnum - 3 weeks, 5 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
This is one of my holy grail FAVORITES! I discovered this little guy this past summer in my Sephora play box. I ran out of my little sample, and wanted the full size ever since. This is a natural, silicone free, and alcohol free, rose scented hair AND body oil. This little guy smells SO good, and we'll worth the price tag, due to the two purposes it serves. Some people have given this negative reviews, and I'm still puzzled about it. The only way this could be given a negative review, is if someone doesn't like the smell of rose, or if someone used way too much of this in their hair at one time, thus causing greasy hair. I have medium thick hair that's extremely long, and all I need is a pump, the size of a dime. I run it through my damp hair, then wipe the excess on my skin. Two benefits in one product, you seriously can't beat that. This doesn't contain alot of the harsh ingredients that alot of hair care and body oils have, like alcohol, so if this doesn't work for you, it's a shame. This truly is a wonderful product. The rose scent is very subtle, but smells amazing in clean hair, and on your skin. It locks moisture in, leaving your skin smelling lightly of a divine rose, and your hair smelling like one too. If you like a product with multiple uses, and you love roses, you will probably love this product. If you have tried this before and hated it, maybe try to use it again. Instead of applying throughout your entire head, try just applying a dab at the ends of your hair, then blow dry. This bad boy tames my frizzes and flyaways from after straightening. A full size bottle is 32$ and since it's for your hair AND body, I can justify this price. My tip of the trick since I have experience with this product is..the thinner your hair, the less you need. The thicker your hair, the more you could get away with applying. Try just smoothing on your ends and flyaways, then rubbing the excess in your skin. How could one not love this, I have no clue. Perfect for my hair type, and my skin loves the oil too. I highly recommend this product.
Review for GLAMGLOW #GLITTERMASK GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
Glamglow masks are pretty good masks. I do believe that their masks are absolutely WAY too expensive, so I just get my Sephora girls to make me samples of the masks whenever I visit lol. Call me cheap, I don't care. No mask is worth 70 bucks, no matter if you can get 30 masks out of it. It's still a mask. I have tried every glamglow mask their is. I recently got to try a sample of the new Glamglow gravity mud, glitter peel mask. I'm giving 3 stars for this mask, due to how beautiful my face looked covered in tons of glitter and sparkles. The glitter and stars on top of black was stunning, and I was obsessed with all the glitter. Once dried down, I began to peel. Peeling masks are such a pain. They never peel off all in one piece, and they hurt! They rip the peach fuzz out of your face, and most the time, doesn't pull anything from out of your pores. They rip your hair out, but don't clean out your pores? I rest my case. This is why masks are super gimmicky to me. Most masks don't do anything, but rather more of a placebo effect in your brain, MAKING you THINK it works, when it really doesn't. After peeling this glittery mess off my face, I will admit my face appeared glowy and brightened. It was temporary of course. Is this mask worth 69$? Absolutely not. Is it fun to use? Absolutely. Is it pretty? Yes. Does it work? Not really. I have oily skin, so if it was supposed to clear my pores, it didn't, but did brighten my face, and give me a temporary glow. Overall, the whole experience was fun.

Review for Dermalogica Age Smart Antioxidant Hydramist - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
This is my first Dermalogica purchase ever, and I'm not disappointed at all. Although this anti aging, antioxidant/hydramist facial spray is pretty expensive, I feel like it has some wonderful ingredients and effects to make up for the pricing. I got this baby half off at Ulta, due to ulta having one of their big sales a couple months ago. I've used over half a bottle lol. I would have never discovered this facial mist, if it hadn't been on sale, but I'm thankful it was, because I absolutely LOVE it. First off, it's an anti aging facial spray that's filled with antioxidants to help combat signs of aging. I'm 28, so preventive care is very important. You can spray this baby any time of the day. Under makeup, over makeup, at the gym, in the car, any time you need a pick me up, day skincare routine, nightly skincare routine. I use it constantly, so maybe that's why I have just a half of bottle left lol. Would I pay full price for This? Although I just absolutely love it, 45$ is very expensive for a face mist, even if their are very good ingredients and antioxidants in it. If I can get it half off again, you can count me in on purchasing my second bottle. When spraying, the mist is very fine and lightweight, smells amazing, and gives your bare skin or skin with makeup a natural glow. I love the fine mist, and love how big the bottle is. This can be used as a anti aging/antioxidant makeup setting spray too, so theirs many ways this can be used, so maybe that makes the price more justified. I know I love it. I feel like it freshen my face, helps with any fine lines, and boosts my natural radiance so I look younger. This really is a good face spray. Thank you ulta for having this half off, or I would have never discovered this gem. Mature women would absolutely LOVE this too

Review for SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Mask - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I am 28 years old, and have struggled with some type of acne my whole life growing up. I have very oily, acne prone skin. I have researched everything to help get rid of my blackheads, clogged pores, ect to no avail. I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on cleansers, seems, toners, moisturizers, treatments, ect and never found a solution. I will say, I own this mask, I own the African black bar of soap, and also the exfoliating scrub. They all go together. African black soap is a natural remedy for problem skin. African black soap really cleaned my skin, and helped my skin alot. Most masks are gimmicky to me, and don't do anything, but this mask..I won't say it's garbage, yet I won't say it's phenomenal. If paired with the entire African black soap line, this mask actually works very well. It smells funny, like playdough, but for a clear face? Who cares right? This mask didn't "clear" my pores or anything miraculous, but i will give 3 stars due to the fact the natural tea tree in African black soap pulled impurities to the surface of my skin, which helped me pop and open my clogged pores. This mask drew the gunk to the top. Overall, it's a decent mask, and you get alot for your money. Get the whole line, and you might just find yourself with clear skin.

Review for KORRES Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
This was one of my first high end moisturizers I ever purchased. This cream smelled absolutely INCREDIBLE, and cost me 40$. This cream brightens your skin, while giving you superior moisture. Problem with that is I'm an oily, acne prone skin woman. Moisturizers that are heavy like this one, are a huge no no for oily, acne prone skin like me. Sometimes, I could apply it at night, and my face would be a grease ball in the morning, but I could never wear during the day, otherwise I'd get extremely oily, and break out badly due to it being to heavy for my skin type. I will say, Korres is an amazing Greek brand, and their products have a very short shelf life, due to the ingredients being extremely natural. This cream smells sooo good. It actually did brighten my acne scars, and it did help with lines on my neck, and little lines in my forehead. I used a half of jar, then gave it to my grandmother, who has dry skin. She absolutely loves it. It's a very good moisturizer, just not for oily, acne prone skin.

Review for Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I am a perfume snob. I am very picky with what I wear, and only wear the best of the best when it comes to uniqueness in fragrances. I have an amazing collection of designer perfumes, and NOTHING I own compares to Nirvana Rose. Nirvana Rose is me in a bottle. I've done went through two 1.0oz bottles since I discovered this unique, magical, witchy, grungy, mysterious scent. I love it so much, I had to have the biggest bottle they carry of this gem. I also carry the roller ball of Nirvana Rose everywhere with me. Their is nothing "sweet" or "girly" about this fragrance. This perfume screams ALPHA! Only an alpha can wear this scent correctly. Wearing Nirvana Rose, you demand attention. I have never smelled anything like this in my life, and I own and have tried thousands and thousands of fragrances, and NOTHING compares to Nirvana Rose. If your looking for a soft, floral, sweet, innocent, flirty, fragrance, Nirvana Rose is not for you. Nirvana Rose is intoxicating. It's deep, dark, seduction in a bottle. Dark rose, mixed in with woods and smoke. The most unique scent I have ever encountered, and now can't go without it. Not just anyone can wear Nirvana Rose. You have to be prepared for this fragrance to demand attention, and radiate confidence. This scent gives you power. This scent makes you feel sexy and unstoppable, but so dark, rosey, and smoky all at the same time. Nirvana Rose will always be my signature scent. This fragrance will make you feel naughty, and want to be bad. Alot might dislike this fragrance, due to not liking Earthy, Woodsy, Smoky, deep dark rose in a fragrance. Not everyone will like this, nor can just anyone wear this like I said. Nirvana Rose picks it's members. I was one of them she grabbed. After 2 hours of me being at home, with this sprayed on my jacket, I knew I had a new affair. With Nirvana Rose. If you like sweet, sugary, syrupy, fruity, innocent, clean or crisp scents, stay far away from this. At first, when you spray, one might think "Yuck! Way too strong!" After that, let it sit on your skin for about 10 mins while your walking through Sephora. Smell your wrist where you sprayed. You will either love it or hate it. Theirs no in between with Nirvana Rose. It mixes with individuals body chemistry, then brings out the best or worst scents in people. My natural body chemistry and Nirvana Rose is pure seduction and intoxicating. Everywhere I go, "OMG! WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?" And that's when I tell them, "That's my secret" hehe. Don't want everyone smelling like me lol. This is my all time signature scent, and refuse to go without it. If you are very quiet and shy, Nirvana Rose will probably be too intense for you. If your outgoing, confident, alpha, then you might just found your match. Nirvana Rose brings out the beast in me. So complex, yet seductive, vintage, and elegant all at the same time.
