This cleanser came in a holiday kit but it didn't work for my normal to dry skin. It was a weird smell and left my skin feeling tight and dry. If you are extremely oily maybe it would work to combat shine but normal to dry skin should avoid. Didn't notice any change in pores.
I picked up the 1.7 oz size from Sephora for $10. My skin is late 20s, normal to dry, and sometimes have hormonal breakouts along jawline. A Youtuber I love has raved about this product for years and I've always wanted to try it. The oil has a very slight cool sensation, not nearly as intense as Clean and Clear or Neutrogena cooling cleansers I've tried. It's a slippery oil that melts away foundation and base makeup very well, although not excellent. My skin feels fine after using, not too oily and not dry at all but I definitely need to double cleanse with this (Philosophy Purity). It does irritate my eyes a bit to the point where I need to rinse and wipe them with a towel to remove excess product very quickly after using. Even then I still need to use a separate dual phase liquid eye makeup remover to take everything off my lashes and liner. I feel like it's just okay. I had a sample of Clinique's cleansing balm and enjoyed that better. I do think it may be breaking me out too I notice small breakouts on my forehead when using so it makes me not reach for it often. I'll use maybe 3x per week because I want to use it up, but won't repurchase.
This is my favorite skinny Brow pencil I've tried. I like it better than Anastasia- ABH's is more dry and hard where Benefit's is creamy but not too creamy, not hard but provides the perfect color without any tip breakage. I have heard the NYX is similar so I'll probably try that next but I could definitely see myself repurchasing the benefit. My brows are big and if I use those triangle tip pencils they get too crazy big looking so a precise tip is best. This pencil has been lasting me a few weeks, so I think you could get about 6 weeks to 2 months of use if used once per day. When Ulta sends out a coupon would be a great time to try it.
Gimme Brow is so easy to use! I'm not the best at brows but this product provides light color and shape to my brows. I have a lot of brow hairs but some sparse areas and this fills them in but looks natural and not too defined. Sometimes I can get the product on my skin but it wipes away very easily with no irritation or smudges. I love the new shade extension! Shade 2 is perfect for my golden blonde hair and dark blonde/light brown eyebrow hairs. Great product! I tried the Essense Make Me Brow dupe but the formula wasn't as easy, there were weird fibers and the color was wrong. Benefit all the way!
I would recommend sticking to the lighter shades in this formula. I really enjoy the nude pink shade Influenster sent me complimentary but darker shades may travel outside the lip line easily as it is a creamy formula. The twist up packaging is cool and I like that the product doesn't dry or harden on the sponge tip when left over. That way you could use what's left on the tip to touch up without dispensing more product. The best part is the lipstick doesn't dry down to a drying budgeproof matte but stays as a soft satin finish. The scent is a sweet fruity scent which is great because I don't like the perfume scent of other Givenchy lipsticks. Maybe wait for a sale since it's expensive!
I received a Demi Glacé mini as a sample through Sephora. I really like the smooth formula and the way it glides over the lips. I don't love the shade however, it's a really chocolate brown color. If you blot it the color can look more deep mauve. I'm afraid it may transfer to my teeth if I wore it while eating which I haven't tried yet. The formula is very strongly scented and tastes sweet. The smell seemed more intense than other BB lip products. I'm interested in trying a lighter shade. If you enjoy liquid lips that hug the lips but don't dry down totally matte you may enjoy this product
This mascara is very nice. It builds upon itself with good length and volume. It makes the lashes defined and the volume is there but not as much as Too Faced BTS. My lashes look a bit thin like the L'Oréal Voluminous but not clumpy or spidery. It's a mascara I like to try in free samples but wouldn't purchase the full size. If your eyes are sensitive to fragrance and/or you wear contacts I'd be careful though. After a few hours of wearing it my eyes feel a bit warm or slightly stingy which I think is due to the rose floral scent. It doesn't smudge or flake through a workout.
Peaches is a matte blush that applies easily and lasts a good amount of time. It's perfect for natural makeup days or to pair with a blinding highlight! For a summer or spring look I love it. The price is reasonable too and you can wait until Mac or Ulta has a sale to purchase!
Chocolate Soliel is such a classic perfect matte bronzer! I will always have this in my collection. Sephora will have it offered as a point perk sometimes which is great. You can contour and bronze with it and it always looks beautiful and natural. Staple in anyone's collection who likes matte bronzers.
