Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser has such a light and refreshing scent. However, it is very thick. It definitely gets stubborn eye makeup off, but then removing this cleansing cream from your face becomes the second hardest part of removing your makeup. Additionally, I didn’t realize this product has beeswax, which I am allergic to, so my eyes were swollen shut shortly after using this.
If you aren’t allergic to beeswax and can stomach the effort it takes to get this cleanser off of your face, then give this a try. Unfortunately, this product was not a match for my own needs.
I keep my Purell on me at all times for life’s spontaneously messy moments. I find that the addition of aloe makes the harsh alcohol scent not as piercing to the senses and it helps keep my hands from looking dried out. A must have in every mom’s bag.
I wanted to love this product, but it was a total waste of money. I have a very typical case of combination skin; oily t-zone and dry patches on my cheeks. However, this spray has a high content of alcohol and it negatively affects my face. With this facial mist, I become more dry and more oily in the affected areas. My makeup will begin to fall off of my face in flaky layers after using this spray.
If you have a similar skin type to me, avoid this facial mist at all costs.
My feelings regarding this mascara are very conflicting. I really like how this mascara emphasizes the length of my natural lashes. It is very easy to apply without getting it all over your eyelid. The formula is a bit drier than other mascaras I’ve owned, but that’s a personal preference. Despite being a drier consistency, I haven’t had issues with flaking.
What I dislike about this mascara is the inconsistency of its wear. Some days, my mascara remains flawless and other days, it’s running down my face and giving me raccoon eyes.
The color match was awesome. The amount of product you get for how much you spend is great. However, there are some things that need improvement. First of all, the consistency of this brow pencil is extremely waxy. It’s very pigmented.... when you swatch it on your hand. Once you make your way to your brows, it’s hard to apply. It does keep your brow hair in place but that doesn’t help with filling my brows in. Secondly, the spoolie does not blend well, it scratches the product you managed to apply right off of your brows.
There are so many other great brow products out there. You can skip out on this. You aren’t missing out on much.
I purchased this during a late-night drugstore run, desperate to find a potent base coat for my nails. When I came across the Pro-Fx Sticky Bass Coat, the first thing that stood out was the size of the bottle. None of my nail polishes or treatments are even close to being 1 oz of product.
Let’s move on to the formula. The consistency of this base coat is very thin and watery, however, it does not require a lot of product to evenly cover your nails. It applies with ease and really bonds to my nail polish. I can get close to two weeks of wear with this base.
You get a lot of bang for your buck with this base coat.
Elf Cosmetics has not always been the most inclusive when it comes to the shade range of their complexion products, especially for pale people and people of color. However, when I discovered that they had finally expanded the shade range of their best selling foundation, I had to see it for myself.
I picked up the shade “pearl” and it’s the closest match I’ve ever gotten with an elf foundation. The finish and coverage of this foundation is magnificent! You really get a flawless finish to your skin with this foundation.
This foundation is definitely on the dry side, perfect for those with combination to oily skin.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this top coat. When I think “gel topcoat” I think about something thick that does not dry quickly whatsoever. Now this product is really thick, but it dries and hardens within a few minutes. This top coat reminds me a lot of the Seche Vite topcoat.
