NO NO NO! EXTREME FLASHBACK!

Translucent shade gives off a strong white cast no matter how I apply it. It is not efficient when it comes to setting under eyes as my concealer creases all day long. Also, it does get patchy upon application over Esteé Lauder’s Double Wear foundation.

Drugstore powders just do not work as they are just talc and silica pressed into a pan. Plus, the packaging is extremely cheap, very prone to breaking even under light pressure.

Invest in a good powder such as Laura Mercier or La Mer and you are good to go for a year!

Review for GLAMGLOW® Thirstycleanse™ Daily Hydrating Cleanser - 1 year ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
OVERRATED AND DRYING!

Been using this for a while now, and it is time for me to talk about this product. Before diving into the PROS and CONS of the product, I have to say that it is a VERY basic cleanser with EXTREMELY cheap ingredients. So it is overly expensive. 

PROS
+Nice scent, but then, fragranced products are highly acnegenic and irritating for all skin types.
+Does not contain Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulfates as cleaning agents.
+Packed with moisturizing ingredients such as Allantoin, Coconut Water and Olive Oil

CONS
-Contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate as the surfactant, which could be very harsh and stripping on sensitive skin.
-There is Cetearyl Alcohol and Olive Oil in it, both of which are highly comedogenic.
-Does not foam up well, takes quite a while to foam it up.
-Contains Clay, and as opposed to the common belief, rubbing clay on your face can result in micro tears on your skin, leading to inflammation, acne and sagging.
-It is VERY drying, even though the name says otherwise. Thus, people with acne-prone, dry and sensitive skin types should stay away from this product.

-Contains Denatured Alcohol, both irritating and overly drying for all skin types
