Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream Review

Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream was a full-on dry, flaky skin miracle for me this past winter.  It is a very thick, stiff textured cream that provides amazing moisture.  It also helps reduce signs of irritation (redness, flakiness etc).  Despite the thick texture, it cause no breakouts or clogged pores.  This is likely due to the fact that 60%…

Graydon Elements Sun Cream Complex Review

I started using Graydon Elements Sun Cream (the full name is actually Graydon Clinical Luxury by Nature Elements Sun Cream Complex…a bit of a mouthful) a few months ago when I was looking for a new mineral-based sunscreen that wasn’t going to be super heavy and shiny.  So far, it has met my criteria.  Despite the cream’s thick and pasty…

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% is a very basic, but effective vitamin C serum for an extremely reasonable price ($6.50!!!).  This particular vitamin C serum is a milky emulsion dispensed from a squeeze tube.  It is a fairly heavy serum and has a bit of a gritty feel from the ascorbic acid powder.  In other brands’…

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil

When I discovered Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil I was super excited.  I finally found a hair oil that was actually made with only real oils, and they’re organic too! (Read my rant about oils that aren’t really oils HERE)  And it also came in super adorable packaging!  Add that to the name having the word “mermaid” in it and I…

The Ordinary Buffet Multi-Peptide Serum Review

The Ordinary Buffet Multi-Peptide Serum is a multi-peptide anti-aging serum that (based on the impressive ingredients list) should be very effective.  Peptides comprise the building blocks of skin.  Basically, over time (aging) they break down and without them your skin wrinkles, sags, loses firmness, and just overall looks older.  Hence why peptide serums are becoming even more popular than they already…

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream Review

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream is amazing.  It is super hydrating and has a nice weight to it for cold weather use.  But it doesn’t clog pores or cause any breakouts, so it should be good in warmer weather as well.  I’ve found that it hydrates deeply and leaves skin feeling supple and comfortable, while soaking in completely and leaving a…

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence Review

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is one of the various essences made by Korean beauty company Cosrx.  This is one of their heaviest, most hydrating essences.  It has a thicker texture than the Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence, which is quite watery (Full review HERE).  This is more of a very thin gel.  I found 3 pumps to be…

One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm Review

I’m in love with One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm.  I have been using it most nights (but not every night since it’s quite rich).  It is so incredibly hydrating and plumping and nourishing to my delicate under eye skin.  It has been an absolute winter savior in the cold, dry weather my hometown of Victoria, BC has experienced…

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Review

It took me a long time to get around to trying out Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid.  Mostly because I wasn’t able to ship it into Canada until relatively recently.  We Canadians get screwed on shipping for a lot of things (either because the shipping ends up costing an arm and a leg, or because stores won’t ship…

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser Review

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser is a great natural foaming cleanser that doesn’t strip or irritate sensitive skin.  I’m a big fan of One Love Organics, and this cleanser didn’t disappoint. It’s a golden gel that produces minimal foaming action when you apply it to your face.  It doesn’t use any sulfates or harsh surfactants, so it…
