I should have known Dove wouldn't let me down, as it is a brand that rarely does. Though I will admit it is often one I pass over for whatever reason. Not anymore! Having dry and sensitive skin, it's hard to find something hydrating and moisturizing enough while also not having a reaction to it. I experience no redness or itchiness and my skin feels soft throughout the day. I'm depending on this to keep my skin in top shape during the summer, when my skin is more displayed thanks to the heat! This is a winner for sensitive skin!
Technically, I'd give it around 3.5 stars. It would rank higher if I got both volume and length. I definitely saw length from this mascara, but the volume was lacking for me. I love the Blackened Brown and I have reached for this when I want a more natural look. I might try layering with another mascara to see if I have better luck on the volume side of things. I want the best of both worlds!
This is a nice nude shade that I think will suit a lot of people. It does dry down as a matte and I experienced no feathering or accentuating of dry patches. The formula feels light on the lips and goes on opaque in one swipe while lasting a few hours on my lips before needing a touch-up. It has a strong fruity scent, but it goes away. This is a winner!
For me, my eyelashes are on the straighter side and not that long. And for that, I think that was my main problem with this mascara. It's a very wet formula and while I thought it made my eyelashes thicker and not clumpy, it was hard to get them to hold a curl. I am not a big fan of wet formulas and this one was just messy for me and this one took a long time to dry down. A lot comes out on the brush that you have to wipe off on the side of the bottle.
I love the idea of being able to shake it and refresh the formula. I think it is such an innovative creation and I wish I liked it more. I don't hate it, but I have used far better mascaras.
I love the packaging on this one. It kind of reminds me of test tubes in a science lab. You squeeze down on the pump and you get a dose of a serum and lotion. They work together to even skin tone and decrease the look of wrinkles. What I like is how cooling it feels on my skin. The Glycolic Acid helps to brighten and remove dead skin. Now with this, I do feel a difference. My skin does not feel as dry in the morning and my makeup goes on a little smoother. Brightness? I'm not too sure, but it is very hydrating.
I love face wipes and face pads. Most of the pads I use foam up and you have to rinse off your face after use. You don't rinse after these. This is a pad saturated with Glycolic Acid for a straight-up method to slough away your dead skin. You can use these nightly and in a circular motion, avoiding the eyes. I choose not to use them nightly, because my skin is too sensitive for it. I like them after a day of wearing heavy makeup, because the little squares on the pads get to work and can catch anything your cleanser missed. My skin does feel clean and smooth, but I get the same benefits from other facial wipes and pads, some of which are cheaper.
I love the holographic label. That has nothing to do with the product, but it's pretty sitting on my bathroom sink. This is meant to be used day and night, but I think that is too much for my sensitive skin. I optioned to use this at night while removing my makeup. The micro-pearls are a little much for me to use too often. Does my skin feel clean afterward? It does and a little softer. I like it, but I don't love it. It works well with the rest of this skincare line, but I don't think it is something that I might necessarily buy on its own.
