It’s that time of the month again where I go over what I have been loving and not so loving last month. Let’s start off with what I have been loving…
Alterna Caviar Re-texturizing Protein Cream — This is the best leave in product I have ever tried for my hair! This protein cream help restructure your hair strands by filling in gaps and tears. Making your hair smoother and healthier and I totally agree. My hair have never felt so soft and light weight before. I highly recommend this!!
Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil — I’ve never been an facial oil person until now. This oil have even out my skin tone and made my skin significantly brighter! I can’t get enough of this oil.
Lorac Pro + Fiber Mascara — I don’t know why no one have talked about this mascara. This makes my lashes so long and thick that it looks almost like falsies!! I personally didn’t have any flaking but my only gripe is that it can smudge a bit. If you have watery eyes this is not for you. Still, I will be purchasing the full size but maybe in the waterproof version if they have it.
Romantic Bear WOW! Long Lasting Lip Color in Sexy Red— This is a lip stain. It’s not the easiest to apply evenly but I love how long the stain last without drying out my lips. Also these are relatively cheap, about $1 per tube.
Okay, now for the misses for the month of January.
Cherimoa Return II Skin Mud Sheet Mask — I’ve tried this mask twice and both times it broke me out. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin, stay away form this mask!
Naisture Charcoal 3 Step Pore Strips — Did absolutely nothing for me!! It didn’t even remove one blackhead, NOT ONE!! The Creme Strawberry Pore Kit is even better than this! This was a complete waste of money.
Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask — I really wanted this mask to work but it was a complete fail. The mask itself wouldn’t come out of the foil packaging, I had to completely cut open the packaging and try to scrape out what I could. The mud/clay mask had separated from the oil which made the mud quite hard to scrape out so I barely got any. Don’t waste your money on this.
Precision Beauty Facial Brush — I bought this from either Ross or Marshall for $4-$5. Which is quite cheap compared to other brands. But there’s a reason why it’s cheap, the bristle is hard and rough on the skin. The bristle also trap water really well therefore it takes a while to dry. I wouldn’t even purchase this for $1. It was an awful brush.
Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Oil — I couldn’t even finish this hair oil. The scent was too overwhelming that it made me nauseated. Also the oil didn’t do much for my hair besides adding some shine.
Clinque Even Better Foundation — This foundation did not work well with my combo skin. I’m usually quite oily with the exception of a few spots being dry, like my forehead and sometimes my nose. The foundation breaks apart after only a few hours. Also the foundation transfer like crazy! I just couldn’t get the foundation to set onto my skin. I’ve tried different primers, powders, and setting sprays. Nothing works with this foundation.
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara — This mascara got great reviews on Sephora but I don’t see what’s so great about it. It barely add any length or volume and it smudges! Even drugstore mascaras are better!
