HYLAMIDE SubQ Eyes
Got this to try as my first eye serum because of all the peptides it contains. I'm in my twenties, but I do naturally have big eyelids that crease, plus some fine lines on the lower lids. I used this twice a day under eye cream, as it was quite thin in consistency and more nourishing than moisturizing. I'm also not positive that makeup would glide well on top of it. It's hard to say that I noticed any drastic difference after using up a bottle, however, it did seem to tighten the skin around my eyes and helped reduce under eye darkness ever so slightly. It made my eye cream adhere very well, and my eye area felt super smooth. The glass component comes with a dropper and lasted me almost a year, due to how far the serum stretches. The product itself is thin but not too runny, yellowish in color and doesn't seem to have a particular scent. The price isn't astronomical either, considering it's so long-lasting, even though I'm not sure how concentrated this thing really is. Might repurchase this again in the future after giving my eye area a break from extra nutrients.
CosRX One Step Original Clear Pads
This product was only okay. I thought I would really like it because of the clean ingredient list but sadly, it didn't do much. This product has 70 pads in it. It lasted me for about 3 months. I used it at night after using the CosRX Good Morning face wash and before the Atopalm Real Barrier Moisturizer. The smell was pretty medicinal like most CosRX products but it wasn't unpleasant. There wasn't excess essence in the bottom of the container, which I would have liked, but there was enough to get the job done. It seemed to do a decent job helping prevent whiteheads. I also have hormonal acne and these pads didn't really seem to help or harm it. If anything they seemed to dry out my face a little. Overall, they were decent but I would not purchase these again.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Plus
Comes in a nice tube packaging and smells fresh, almost a tad sweet. Has a consistency of a smooth lotion or emulsion and a milky color. Used this for years mostly as a spot treatment on whiteheads/closed comedones. Sometimes mixed it in with my moisturizer as a preventative measure or put it on my nose to combat blackheads, but after seeing the ingredient list, I wouldn't recommend doing that due to some clogging ingredients. I ran to this product anytime I felt a breakout, and even thought I'm not a fan of the ingredient list, I gotta admit that it was very effective. If a whitehead had already formed, it popped it over night. If something was being conceived under my skin, it killed it at the rood without giving it a chance to come up. I can feel it burn a bit for a while after putting it on the spot. One strange thing that it does is that if you blob the product on and then let it sit there for a good amount of time, you will notice the presence of dimethicone, because the blob will eventually turn into a silicone ball and just roll off the skin. It's incredibly hard to use up this much product just on spots, and I definitely threw half-full tubes out before because they expired, but at the same time the price is that of smaller spot treatments. Will be looking for less clogging spot treatments with no fragrance. I don't believe it ever broke me out, but I'm not sure how it would do on oilier skin types.
The Ordinary Buffet
It's hard to comment on the anti-aging effect of this product after using up a bottle, simply because I'm in my twenties, so I will talk about its other aspects. ~ For one, have you seen that ingredient list? No matter how you look at it, it's suitable for so many while providing great benefits. Not clogging, not irritating, yet full of amino acids and peptides. These prices almost make me question Deciem's sourcing for the Ordinary line, but even if I get a little portion of the benefits without having anything to loose, it's still completely worth it in my mind. ~ In terms of experience, applying this product was very pleasant. It has a faint chemical smell, nothing noticeable. The texture is phenomenal: weighty, slightly tacky, hydrating but not greasy in any way. Perfect to follow up with a moisturizer. Sinks in fast and serves as a great morning serum. Haven't gotten a single break out when paired with other trustworthy products. I used it on others with combo and oily skin types, and they all loved it, even my bf. ~ Lasts at least 6 months of daily use, you only need a little. This serum is simply a hustle-free way slip in those anti-aging ingredients, while keeping your skin hydrated. Gotta be one of the most well-rounded skincare products I've tried.
A'pieu Madecassoside Cream
I have oily dehydrated skin and i was looking for a cream for my oily acne prone skin and i found the one, i love the texture, didn't clog my pores, and has great benefit of calming inflammation and has healing properties while still giving you enough moisturize through all night.
ISDIN Fotoprotector - Fusion Water SPF 50+
Great product, very light, absorbing quickly, mat finish. After 5 mins you do not feel the product on your face. Great under make-up. I have used it just twice but checked 5 other spfs50 this summer looking for the one good for my acne prone skin. I like also HELIOCARE 360 gel oil free, but it is a bit sticky if you want to use a thick layer. So if you look for product that you will not feel I recommend ISDIN FUSION WATER.
Biotrust Ageless Glow
I have very sensitive skin, and it's hard to find a product that doesn't irritate, dry out, or make my face blotchy. This product is wonderful! Not only is it made from quality, natural ingredients, but I use it every day and my skin feels great. I recommend it to my family and friends.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
This little pot lasts crazy long, because the tiniest amount coats you lips in a nice heavy jelly-like way. It's clear with a pink hue and smells like berry heaven. Comes with the cutest teardrop silicone applicator in an itty-bitty clear case. I find that it does penetrate my lips well enough and feels hydrating, but I gotta say I don't really feel it absorbing for a very long time(hence "lip mask" I suppose) and sometimes end up smearing it before falling asleep. Also, the ingredient list is nowhere near stellar(hate that it contains alcohol), so I feel like it's more of a novelty product, if you will. I prefer oilier balms that sink in and have a better lasting effect, but this lip mask was a pleasant experience nonetheless.
