This review is for the Snail Bee Serum which I can’t find on here! This serum is hydrating on my dry skin although it does leave a sticky finish which I don’t love, but topping it with moisturizer helps. It works fine under makeup too! I had a pimple pop up and it reduced the size much quicker than normal and also cleared up a cycstic pimple along my jawline I had for weeks. This shows me it really is great for acne! I haven’t seen any reduction in fine lines or wrinkles but the acne benefits are great for me for the occasional pimple. It hasn’t helped with my blackheads though unfortunately. I chose the serum instead of the essence because the ingredients of the serum are fermented and the essence is not. Also sometimes I experience a tingling sensation and redness but it goes away quickly but I’m not sure if that’s normal with this or not, and for that reason I may reserve only for when I have a breakout.
I received this complimentary from Influenster to try out. It’s got a matte finish and applied to the skin with a little thicker texture than most liquidy concealers but I like it. The finish isn’t a dry cakey matte but a comfortable natural matte finish. The shade I was sent is warm ivory, which is really not an ivory fair shade but more like a warm sand color for medium skin tones. I like to spot conceal on areas of hyper pigmentation with this under my foundation and it does a great job! Unfortunately the shade is too dark to use on my under eye so I can’t use it there, but I’m likely to pick up a lighter color to try there! A tiny bit of product goes a long way too. If I dab one acne scar with product I can usually tap the excess onto another area and it’s covered too. Very nice concealer!
I truly love this cleansing toner- it does just that- cleanser away makeup, face wash residue, dirt, etc and also imparts hydration. My skin is dry and adding a toner into my routine completely changed my skincare and health of my skin. I use this for the 7 skin method and purchased through Soko Glam which is amazing!! It has a light watery texture and imparts a beautiful glow to the skin. I really think all skin types could use it. The licorice scent is natural through the ingredients and fades within 5 mins or so. I saw an overall brightening of the skin tone although not much difference in post inflammatory pigmentation from acne. But overall my skin was so improved in terms of texture, tone, and hydration from this product. I have about 4 uses left in the bottle and will repurchase. It’s amazing! I was worried the light watery texture wouldn’t be enough for my dry skin but it was. I would do the 7 skin method with this a few times per week, usually 2 or 3, and on a daily basis do 3 layers of toner 2x daily. The bottle lasted about 2 months using this way, and it was only $18 I think so good deal! Plus you can find coupon codes online for Soko Glam if you search.
This cleanser is fine for my dry skin but I don’t love it. It leaves my skin not overly dry but slightly dry. I thought it would be more hydrating. Although the ingredients are supposed to be basic and non irritating like Cetaphil or Cerave cleansers, it is similar but just like those cleansers seem to have no benefits for the skin. It’s a very “eh” product for my dry skin. I’d rather use a formula that has better antioxidants and is more hydrating. Tip- Target sells it for about $3 less online than I paid in store. Overall wouldn’t repurchase.
Terrible powdery powder. This is sadly the worst powder blush bronzer highlight I’ve tried in many years. The blush color was a dirty muddy plum, bronzer was orange on my light medium warm toned skin. It did nothing to flatter the face but was just chalky and strange. Wouldn’t recommend. Wet n Wild way better!!
This primer is oily feeling and does work well under the Joah foundation on my dry skin. I’m worried it might be breaking me out though because it contains a lot of silicones. I’m going to pass along to a friend. Wouldn’t purchase myself or recommend. Once it’s absorbed the slippy oily feeling goes away but I don’t think it’s doing anything to smooth or increase makeup longevity.
I LOVE this so far, but disclaimer have only been using for 4 days. My skin is dry, no flaky patches, occasional small hormonal breakouts, 30 years old. The ingredients of this product are great!! It reminds me of how Korean skin care has clean, simple, real ingredient that you can understand (for the most part). I just wish the pump cleansers in this line had this products ingredients (ie: no petroleum). My eyes are super sensitive to makeup removers but this product completely removed my eyeliner/shadow/mascara on a cotton pad quickly and easily. The Cerave hydrating micellar water burned my eyes so bad, and the NYX Stripped Off cleansing water is great for face but doesn’t remove eye makeup nearly as well as this Olay. I would repurchase if after continued use it doesn’t break me out although the ingredients are so good I don’t think it will. It’s one of the few Olay products and American drugstore products in general I’ve found to be made of truly good healthy things and not so many chemicals or silicones. Wish Olay would make more products like this.
