Ceramic Slip

I forgot to put this in my haul… You guys know I like to use a cleanser after I wash my make up off with FAB. So I figured since I love Sunday Riley so much it would only be right if I put all my other cleansers to rest and use this. So far I am LOVING IT!

    How do you like the Sunday Riley CEO moisturizer so far, and how does it compare to Tidal? I absolutely love Tidal, and really want to try CEO as well. Would love to read your thoughts on it!

      Hi Fatima. Yes I love the CEO. It’s defenitly creamy and heavier in formula than Tidal. Tidal is light weight and hydrating whereas CEO is moisturizing and thicker.

    Hi love, so I purchased the Sunday Riley Goos Genes cause you raved about it so much, and I’ve been using it for a couple days now and it’s breaking me out :/ it makes my skin dry and I have tiny breakouts throughout my face, but it has brightened my face a lot. Is that a normal sign that will eventually go away as my face gets used to the product? Or is my skin too sensitive for the 40% of lactic acid it contains? I really wanted to fall in love with it

      Hi Annie! That’s too bad. I guess your skin isn’t taking it well. I’m not sure about your skin “getting used to it”. Maybe you should stop using it. But better yet, since I’m not dermatologist, you should consult with someone who is and see what they think. It def does dry the skin out. Maybe try using it every other day. Also did you try any other new skin care product at the same time? Are you sure it’s good genes that’s breaking you out?

    It deff is drying out my skin πŸ™ I also have really dry skin to begin with. Do you recommend anything I can use in conjunction with the Good Genes to really hydrate my skin? I really appreciate your input, thank you!

      Sure, both tidal and CEO by Sunday are very hydrating. Try them out!

Product Review

For years I have been using the same 2 face washes, FAB Face Cleanser to remove my make-up followed by Boscia Detoxifying Black CleanserΒ to cleanse my skin. And even though I would never substitute FAB Face Cleanser for anything else, I do often substitute my Boscia cleanser (second step) with other products just to test things out. Thus far I have loved subbing it with Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Facial Cleanser and Kate Somerville Daily Detox. Anyway…a few weeks back I decided to try out a new facewash that had just hit the market ExfoliKate Cleanser:
img_8582
After using it for a good few weeks I was ready for a review.
img_8583
It is by far the worst face wash I have ever used! On the back it says it removes make-up, so one day I only had loose powder on my face and decided to skip using FAB and just use this stupid shit instead. I use it, get out of the shower, wipe my face using my Shiseido Facial Cotton and Murad Clarifying Toner, look at the cotton and see MAKE-UP on it! I was like -are you serious?- It didn’t even remove loose powder?! Dumbest shit ever!

    I would really recommend a cleanser by the french brand Yves Rocher! The packaging is not very exciting but the product is sooo good! Within the first week of using it I bought two back ups (which I have never done with any other cleanser I have used before!) because I love it that much! It’s on sale right now too, only $6.50!!! http://www.yvesrocherusa.com/control/product/~category_id=1760/~pcategory=1000/~product_id=54180?cmSrc=Category

    This is NOT A MAKEUP REMOVER. Its a chemical exfoliator. If it really says makeup remover on the packaging they labeled it incorrectly. Its an excellent one actually. I dont know how you can use shitty FAB products since they contain irritating ingredients and they dried out my skin like crazy. Blegh

Current Cleansers

image
I have been using my FAB face cleanser and Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser with my Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge since forever now, and I am addicted to that combination. But recently I thought since I am so pleased with Boscia I should try out their Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil. I have been LOVING this product. So I alternate my FAB Face wash with this.

I apply the oil on my dry hands, and rub it all over my dry face. After a good minute of massaging it all over my face, I take a warm wet facial cloth and start to wipe off all the oil and make-up. I then take my Boscia Konjac sponge and use my Boscia Detoxifying Cleanser for that deep clean feeling. I can never just wash off my makeup and be done, I always have to go in afterwards with another cleanser for another layer of cleaning.

Now this oil does not take off my mascara but since I have had lash extensions for the past 3 weeks (I will post about my lash girl she is TO DIE FOR) and I don’t wear mascara, using this oil is perfect. Prior to my lash extensions when I did wear mascara, I would wash off my eye make up after I used the wet wash cloth and removed the oily/makeup. I would wet my eyes with hot water to melt off as much mascara as possible, and then as usual I would rub a bar of dove soap on each eye. This takes off ALL my eye makeup.

Anyut

Product Review

I have mixed emotions about this product:
image
The idea of an oil face wash no longer freaks me out as it did prior to using the Eve Lom Cleanser. But I was never fond of the idea of it, so I eventually stopped using my Eve Lom after a few jars. My main concern with an oil cleanser is the fact that it doesn’t properly remove mascara! I must so though they are amazing when it comes to washing off face make-up.

Anyway when I bought the Tatcha Pure Step Camellia Cleansing Oil I expressed my concern to the chick who was working at the skincare department and she specifically told me that if I very gentle rub my lashes with the oil using my finger tips my mascara would come off. I then continued telling her that I wear like 6 layers of mascara, was she sure that it would remove it? and she reassured me that it would. A few days after bring the product home, I got all excited to finally use it. I applied 2 pumps on my dry hands and massaged it into my dry face. Melted my face make up ALL OFF! so I moved onto my mascara and of course it didn’t do S&%$! Just smeared it. Generally I use my FAB cleanser with my Boscia sponge to wash my make up off and then I use another cleanser like my Boscia Detox to really get that fresh clean finish. FAB washes off ALL my make-up off including my eyes. For some people a 2 step process to wash your face is already too much, for example both my sisters will use a bar of Dove soap and their skin is flawless! I’m fine with a 2 step process but if I decide to continue using the Tatcha oil, I would technically be in a 3 step process which I am not willing to do. I would use the oil to wash my face make-up, then use FAB or Dove soap to wash my eyes, and THEN wash up with Boscia Detox. Ya…no thanx!

So basically if you are someone who wears very little mascara then yes I definitely recommend this product, but if your like me and you use heavy mascara then I don’t recommend it.

XoXo,
Anyut

      yes exactly. I wet the sponge it expands, I hold it form the round part and apply my FAB cleanser on the flat part and I massage it all over my face. Then I rinse the product from the sponge and apply the black detox cleanser and repeat the process.

Product Review

Hey Everyone,

A few weeks ago I posted a face wash I had gotten by Bliss. I have been using it every morning on clean skin for the past few weeks. As you can see I’ve used like a quarter of it:
image
Feedback: I didn’t really love it. Or should I say I don’t really love it cause I still have the product sitting in my bathroom, except I won’t be continuing use. It is nothing special, and does nothing special. The micro-beads are too small to feel like you are using a scrub, my skin didn’t feel squeaky clean after use (oh. I only used it in the a.m. on clean skin), and I hate the smell. It reminded me of Victorias Secret body splashes (which remind me of my high school P.E locker rooms). Anyway I don’t recommend it. I think if anything I liked my Arcona Tea Tree Bar for a morning cleanser.

XoXo,
Anyut

      do you mean the cartier love bracelet? I actually have not taken mine off in the 5 years that I have had it. When I get spray tanned it stays on and the chicks who spray me try to make it so that it doesn’t leave a mark. Sometimes they succeed sometimes they don’t. lol oh well….

Eve Lom Feedback…

Hey guys,

So I used my Eve Lom Cleansing Treatment a few times already and I like it. It is not your typical cleanser.

Use: Take some in the tips of your fingers and start applying it on your dry skin…yes dry. I eventually starts to turn into an oil. I like to leave the sink water running so the water becomes boiling hot as I’m massaging my face. Initially I would look at the picture of the 7 steps massage, which detoxed you lymphs, but then I got the hang of it. You can rub your eye make gently as well. Everything melts right off.

image

So after massaging it in for a good 2 mins you see the make up melting off. Take your cloth that come with the cleanser, or any face cloth and wet it.
image

Squeeze the water out and place the hot cloth on your face. Allow the heat to really absorb into your skin and start wiping off the make up and dirt off.

image

Honestly I seems like a lot of work, and it kinda of is but I don’t mind it. The only good thing about this cleanser compared to my other 2 cleaners is that with Eve Lom everything comes off in one wash. Whereas with my Kate Somerville Daily Detox or my Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleansing Foam, I would have to wash my face twice to make sure all the make up and dirt is gone.

XoXo,
Anyut

Finally Found!

I don’t know if you guys rememeber but a while back I had posted a few products that I wanted to get, all of which I had found off the Sephora website. Anyway, since I dont like to buy products online, I have been looking for them at Sephora stores and department stores, and have had difficult time finding most.

So I went to Bloomies today and found this:
image

The Eve Lom Cleanser/Treatment
image
image
image
image

I can’t wait to use it! It is a cleanser you apply on your dry skin over all your make up. Massage it into your skin using the Eve Lom 7 step technique, then apply a hot towel over your face, allow the heat to melt off your make-up then wipe it all off. At $135 dollars for the 6.8 oz and $85 for 100mL (3.3 oz), it is a bit of a pricey cleanser, but definitely worth a try. The cleanser is supposed to tone, exfoliate, cleanse, decongest, and get rid of the most stubborn waterproof make-up. The line is from London, Eve Lome is an esthetician in London who apparently is booked 2 months in advanced. She came out with her own line of skin care.

I will post a review in a week or 2, if it cleanses my double wear foundation by Estee Lauder in one wash, then this product will be like no other! Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!

    If you like this type of cleanser, you should try Ultra Bland from Lush! It is the BEST! It removes all your makeup and then after you wipe it off with steam and a hot wash cloth your face is left so radiant and moisturized…I am addicted! Just like you I was skeptical about a cleanser like this but it’s actually not a lot of work and it actually feels like a mini treatment before bed…

BLISS

 

As you all know I have been using my Kate Somerville Daily Detox Cleanser for months now, I think I am on my 7th tube. Today I realized I need to go buy a second cleanser so I can keep it in my shower. It is so annoying to keep moving it from my shower to my sink. Anyway when I went to Sephora I decided to try out another type of cleanser, so I got this:

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleanser Foam.

I remembered that Teni Panosian the Beauty Blogger said in one of her youtube videos that she swears by this cleanser. So I will keep this one in my shower and try it out. I will let you guys know what I think soon.

Flawless Skin…

 

Hey everyone,

One of the best things about studying at home all day other than the fact that I’m actually becoming more educated, lol is the fact that I get to sit downstairs in my study from 10am to 5pm with a bare canvas at least 4 days a week. I have always been the type of girl that put make-up the minute she woke up every single morning. Even when I had just given birth and had days where I stayed in pajamas all day on motherly duties, I would do it looking damn good. I was always the kind that thought someone might knock on the door or I might have a errand to run, so I should always look presentable.

Of course the benefits to this mentality was that I always look presentable, the cons were that I am was not letting my skin breathe at all during the day. Since staring school I find myself waking up and hitting the books 4 days a week. I don’t really leave the house much during the day until my nanny leaves. So around 5pm is when I actually put make-up on, and let me tell you guys, it doing wonders for my skin. So really what happens is I wash my face at night, and then for the next 19 hours my skin is bare. It breathes and I don’t abuse it with cosmetics. Then I apply cosmetics around 5pm because thats when I actually have a life. lol. So really I am only wearing make up for about 5 hours of each day. My skin has been looking amazing.

My skin regimen has changed completely. I wash my face at night with my Kate Somerville Detox Cleanser.
image
Then I wipe my face with my toner from Shiseido Hydro Nourishing Softener.
image
This cleans any dirt, oil or reside left behind from the face wash, hydrates, and prepares my skin for my night serum. Last step for the p.m is my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.
image

In the AM. I wash my face with warm water apply my toner and very little eye cream. During the day when I take a break I like to exfoliate and wear masks, I do this only 2 times a week. I actually have on a mask as I type. I use my Philosophy micro delivery exfoliating wash with my Clarisonic Mia 2. Then on my clean skin I apply a mask and return to books while I wait for the it to dry.
image
image

When 5pm comes, and I have to apply make-up this is when I use moisturizer. Currently I am using Clarins Multi-Active Day, and I have no complaints.
image
Of course I have a thousand and one other products to alternate the ones I named earlier, but these are for now the ones I am using primarily.

XoXo,
Anyuta.
