Empty Product Reviews - June 2022

Updated: Jul 27, 2022


Happy Summer!


I'm still on the search for great moisturizers and cleansers. It's difficult when you have sensitive skin that's somewhere between dry and combination and you also like to look hydrated and not matte...but also not oily.


We truly want the world and get mad when these beauty brands can't deliver lol.


Here are some products I finished in the past couple months:

Eczema Honey Body Lotion ($23.99): This claims to be an itch-soothing sensitive skin solution that contains colloidal oatmeal, is dermatologist tested, and accepted by the National Eczema Association. This didn’t irritate my skin but didn’t improve it either. It takes a little extra rubbing in but overall, it’s good.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Maybe


Kosas Sport Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant, Serene Clean ($16): They claim that this deodorant's AHA blend fights odor, soothes and visibly brightens skin. It's free of aluminum, baking soda, parabens, synthetic fragrance and sulfates. I wasn’t sure about this at first but now I’m hooked! I like roll-ons because they don’t stain anything, but the downside is it doesn’t dry instantly and is sometimes still wet when I put my shirt on. But it’s been keeping the odor away! If I’m outside all day, it starts fading by the end of the day. But overall, I’m impressed and already ordered backups!

Would I repurchase? Yes


The Natural Dentist All in One Fluoride toothpaste ($5.49): This claims to prevent cavities, whiten teeth, strengthen tooth enamel, fight tartar, and freshen breath. It's a good clean toothpaste. It’s not super minty and freshening, but I’ve never found a clean brand that does that well. I'm afraid to have a toothpaste without fluoride even though I've heard pros and cons to it.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


Cest Moi Gentle Moisture Lotion ($14.99): This is a fragrance-free lotion that claims to be packed with nourishing ingredients, soothe delicate skin types, and promote a complexion that's balanced, hydrated, and calm. It's also EWG verified. I think this brand is aimed at young girls but it’s clean and gentle and I liked it. It doesn’t absorb super quickly, so I found I only needed a little bit to rub into my whole face.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


NYX Bare With Me Radiant Perfecting Primer- ($15): I loveeee this stuff! It gives such a healthy, gorgeous glow to the skin under makeup or on its own. I use it on myself and clients all the time!

Rating: 10/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation, Light ($39.50): I think I reviewed this when I finished the other shade I had. This one isn’t done but it got all weird and I can’t really get the product to come onto my brush (you know when powders get a weird hard layer sometimes?) so I’m trashing it. Wasn’t my fave anyway.

Would I repurchase? No


ELF Holy Hydration Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm ($11): I love how smooth and gentle this is! I’ve been using it for probably a year now to remove makeup at night before cleansing. It contains hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and peptides. I go through one in about 2-3 months.

Rating: 8/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


DUO Brush On Adhesive with Vitamins ($4.99): I didn’t know there were vitamins until just now when I read the tube, but I don’t care about that in my lash glue lol. This worked well and the brush-on glue is less messy than the squeeze tube.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


NYX Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Color in Beach Casual ($8): This is a great nude shade for light skin tones! I used to apply a light layer of this with the NYX lip oil on top for a natural everyday look. It’s not super pigmented so it won’t look too bold. It claims to be plumping and I did feel the slightest tingle, but I wouldn't count on it for making your lips super pouty.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


Drunk Elephant Beste No 9 Jelly Cleanser ($32 for full size): This is just a sample size so I can’t speak to long term effects, but it didn’t do anything special for me. Just average.

Rating: 5/10

Would I repurchase? No
