make p:rem Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam Review

Because I’m a fan of their in-shower mask (click here for my review), I knew I would love  the Make P:rem Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam. I’m still on my first bottle but have already purchased a second one so that I can be certain I won’t run out. [Update Jan 2019: The packaging has changed to a softer looking plastic tube since I wrote this review. I’m still using older bottles so haven’t had a chance to try it yet.]

Mia’s review: I have combination skin with cheeks/chin that can be quite dehydrated. So I’m always looking for a cleanser that is creamy looking rather than clear. I don’t know why but I assume Continue reading

make p:rem In-shower Mask Review

I’ve been using sheet masks for a decade and can’t make myself use them regularly. I just don’t like sitting around with something on my face for 15-20 minutes even if all I’m doing is watching TV. I love the results (i.e., glow-y skin) of using a sheet mask but that still isn’t enough to get me to use them regularly. This is why I thought an in-shower mask would be prefect for me.

Sunscreen Review Part 1: make p:rem, Murad, Tatcha, Hydropeptide

I’m writing another sunscreen post because I’ve struggled to find something that works for me for a long time. I’m tan and find that a lot of times the tint (or whiteness) of sunscreen doesn’t work for me. I also have skin that is on the drier side.

Why this review?

For years I used chemical sunscreens and then a couple of years ago I became worried about the health effects of using them. I tried to switch to mineral sunscreens (i.e., zinc and titanium dioxide) but just couldn’t find any that worked well. Also, at the time I was convinced I had to avoid all products with silicones because silicones were giving me milia. I’ve now learned I’m okay with silicones but still try to avoid using too many.

Fast forward to about a year ago and I found Hydropeptide’s SPF. But being that I always think there is something better, I decided to try some others. Also, the hydropeptide SPF is quite expensive.  I often wanted to save it for special occasions since it works great under my foundation.

A reminder, this is my skin color. I’m a 2Y08 or a 3Y07 using Sephora’s color IQ system.
