Products I reviewed that I still use

2

Since I took a long break, my skin has changed significantly, as described in last week’s skin update, there are certain products I used to hate that I fell in love, as well as products that I used to adore that now just don’t work. So let’s talk about that!

Skincare

Let’s start with skincare because eh, I’m not the biggest fan of reviewing actual skincare (not cleansers) because it takes time to see any effects it might (not) have on the skin, so there’s not that many on my blog.

My most adored skincare item that I have reviewed is… Skinfood Black Sugar Mask! This thing is an actual lifesaver! It hydrates, exfoliates and smells good. I’ve also tried the other variations (honey, strawberry and 2X), they’re all the same exact thing – but the Strawberry version smells the best (don’t taste it tho).

Next skincare item I still use and love is one that I have not yet reviewed, but mentioned it in my skincare routine and it’s the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch – this thing is another lifesaver. even tho I don’t need to use it nearly as much as before.

Makeup

Firstly, let me tell you that I no longer use any cushions. I will probably start again, seeing as I loved them, but now I just can’t be asked. They’re pretty expensive, even the refills.

Base

One thing I actually started hating on as soon as I broke out, but now adore, is the Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus BB Cream. It just matches me perfectly and makes my skin look astonishing and just beautiful even if I have a bad skin day. The shade is a bit… meh, as it’s very grey but somehow, it just works so freaking amazingly on my skin, like damn.

The same thing happened with Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream with the difference that I actually really disliked this in my initial review and now I feel bad. It’s a great product, just the coverage is pretty damn lacking.

Another base, but now actual foundation, is the Etude House Double Lasting Foundation. I don’t use it as much because it’s pretty damn matte and I’m not into that right now. However, the lasting power is amazing.

Now the powder we all love and I’m no different is the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder & Pact. I actually use the pact, not the loose powder. And I also use it on just under my eyes and my nose.

Concealer

One concealer that I have always loved and still do is the Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream. My under eyes are way darker now and this helps a whole lot.

Another concealer, that I actually extremely disliked but now like, is the A’Pieu Moist Creamy Concealer. The reason why I started liking it was, to be quite honest, the shade. It’s so pale that I can actually use it for highlighting, which is really damn hard to find without it being just white.

Lips

I still use only two lip products and those are Aritaum Color Lasting Tint (this one I keep in my work) and Aritaum Mirror Gloss Tint. Both are amazing, moisturizing and very long lasting with a great tinting power. Highly recommend both.

Point

I haven’t really reviewed much point makeup so I’ll just say it. The beautiful trio that is too cool for school ARTCLASS by Rodin I just love. All of them. The blush, contour and also highlighter. Even tho the highlighter isn’t blinding enough for me so I rarely use it (much prefer Jeffree Star or Ofra). But the other two are just perfect and I love them.


Thank you so much for reading and, as always, if you have any questions, feel free to comment below or contact me.

    You mention breaking out and pimples a couple times…am I in the wrong place as a guy trying to figure out how to get rid of that? My old routine which I used as a young lad and worked a charm doesn’t work anymore.
