Review for Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion - 1 month ago
Purchased at: H-E-B
This is my love/hate relationship with this particular lotion. I hate how it applies. It doesn’t rub into the skin as easily as most lotions. It has a terrible scent that refused to leave. It isn’t a light lotion but it isn’t super thick either. Now for the love, it gives an amazing glow without the glitter or shimmer. It helps with my super dry arms and prevents my eczema from flaring up as much but 48hrs? I don’t think so. I have to reapply even before the 24hr mark. This is an easy product to find anywhere on the globe and it is cheap for a huge pump bottle.

Review for La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser - 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Purchased at: Space NK
I used this cleanser while I was living in Europe. It is a very basic gentle cleanser which is great for overactive skin type. I didn’t use it to take my makeup off so I can’t say how it did in that area. However, I did use it with my Clarisonic. I like that the only purpose for this cleanser is to just clean the face with none of those bs anti-aging or brightening claims etc. It didn’t dry out my skin afterwards or that weird tight feeling. Another cleanser that didn’t break me out in rosacea or eczema or acne or hives after a few uses which is very rare for me. Main issue I have with this cleanser and like many non sudsy cleansers is this weird sensations I get if I use a full pump. It isn’t painful but just uncomfortable and weird. I do keep this in rotation with another cleanser. It is cheap for a 400ml worth of cleanser. It lasted several months for me so I am definitely love that I don’t have to keep repurchasing every few months.

Review for Eucerin Eczema Relief Body Creme - 8 oz - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Purchased at: Walgreens
I get eczema all over especially on my face if I’m not careful or pay attention. I have my usual favourite but I prefer having choices. I never tried anything from Eucerin and this was the only one left at the Walgreens shelves. This has a very different feel to my usual eczema cream. This feels thicker and also a tad sticky so I can’t use it when it’s humid. There is no added fragrance but there is a smell to it. It’s not exactly the smell of the oats but it is something. I’m not sure I like it so it is kinda hard for me to like using this cream. It did soothe my skin so this is my emergency stash when nothing else is around or when I ran out of my usual eczema cream.

I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. After hearing such raving reviews, I decided to pick this one up. This is another lightweight foundation that let your skin breathe through and glow. It covers any redness I have so when my rosacea or eczema hit, it brings the redness down so much so I can go out without looking like a tomato. The major letdown for me is that this foundation oxides like no other so from being a tomato, I ended up as an orange. I just can’t catch a break with this foundation. I just don’t have the time to test out on just one foundation for just one shade especially since I know there will be a whole bunch of new foundations out in the market every year. I ended up giving mine away. If you have the time and really want this foundation, pick up a sample of a few shades. This oxides badly on me even wit a primer underneath.

Review for CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 - 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I have this in B30 and I just love the super light wear of this foundation. It feels like wearing nothing on the skin. The coverage is better than the usual tinted moisturiser and it blends so effortlessly into the skin. However, this is no oil control on this formula so powdering throughout the day is a must for oily/combo skin type. Like most Chanel products, it has that typical fragrance. You either love it or hate it. It is very sheer so concealer is a must to hide any heavy imperfection. It didn't break up by the end of the day for me and I love it didn't feel like it's suffocating my skin. I won't be repurchasing though cause at the moment, I am more of just a concealer girl.

Review for DevaCurl Low Poo Delight, Weightless Waves Mild Lather Cleanser - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
After using the regular version, I decided to switch over to the Low Poo Delight instead. The suds are so little and the scent is so refreshing and I love how much better it smells. It also has a good slip and detangles my hair a bit before I use conditioner to detangle the rest of my hair. It does take a bit more time to get the shampoo out of my hair but I love how light my hair feels afterwards. This might be my favourite shampoo out of their brand.

Review for NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Purpose Dry Oil - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I tried this version and I think this moisturises my skin and hair a tad better than the one with the shimmers. Again, this doesn't feel oily on the skin and hair so I don't look like someone who hasn't shower for days. The only reason why I won't be repurchasing this is the fragrance. It has the same fragrance as the shimmers version. I can't get over the strong body odour scent of this oil. When I mean strong, it is STRONG. If you are sensitive to fragrance, stay away from this product. It can induce headaches.

Review for NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or Multi-Usage Dry Oil Golden Shimmer - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
It’s a dry oil which means no oily feel. The shimmer in this is so pretty and I just love how it looks on the skin. However, this is only 2 stars for me cause it didn’t hydrate my skin or my hair. For me, it just sits on my skin and hair. The biggest issue is the fragrance. I might be the odd one here. I hate the fragrance. It reminded me of something while in Asia. It’s like a really bad body odour. If you ever lived in Asia, you would probably get what I’m saying. I wish the French would just make their products less fragranced for once.

Review for Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter - 1 month, 3 weeks ago
I’ve purchased this twice. One in cool cucumber aloe which was one of the first fragrances when it was first launched and another one in Tropical Orchid. I think the fragrance is a lot subtle now. I could hardly smell much from the Tropical Orchid. I’m no sure if I’m disappointed or not. I might as well get the unscented one the next time. The body butter is very light and airy. This is nothing during colder Winter in Scandinavia but I like it for the other times. It didn’t absorb into my skin as fast as I want to which is just fine by me and I also like the layer of moisture that lingers on my skin for a bit. It leaves my skin glowing which is fantastic in the summer time and date nights. Application is so easy and I didn’t have to spend so much time putting it on like a couple of other lotions and body butter that I have. It isn’t that expensive unless you’re comparing it to drugstore products and it does last quite awhile for me and I am a body care nut.
