SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream Update: I’ve started using this moisturizer with The Ordinary’s Niacinimide Serum, and have found it’s a lot better with that! It still doesn’t give me anything special, but it doesn’t feel and look as oily as it did without the Niacinimide serum. Original Review: Pro: It does moisturize. Cons: Doesn’t mix well. Leaves pores huge sometimes. Does not exfoliate or plump like it claims it does. I cant speak to whether this actually brightens dark spots because I don’t have many and haven’t used it consistently enough for that. This is definitely a moisturizing product as it claims to be. My issue is that despite being oil-free, it leaves my face looking and feeling oily all day if I use it with serums. Has to be used on its own, or with drying products - doesn’t mix well and leaves skin oily when I do mix it. This product also somehow leaves my pores looking huge. Despite claiming to have exfoliating and plumping properties, I haven’t noticed it do either.

Nude-ish Lip Plumping Gloss - Really Works!

ICONIC - Lip Plumping Gloss This is a beautiful gloss regardless of the lip plumping, but it really does plump my lips! Of course it’s short-term, but it gives a natural-looking plump that gives your lips a fuller look and can be re-applied as needed. Gives a subtle tingling feeling that’s quite pleasant. I love wearing this on its own. It does have some color payoff, and I love that there are no specks in it - just shine. This shade is a beautiful peachy nude that compliments almost any look! This is my go-to lip gloss for daily wear and for glam. It can be a tiny bit tacky, but not in an uncomfortable or sticky way at all. Sometimes it’ll build up just a bit, but it’s very easily touched up by rubbing your lips together or dabbing it with a napkin or your finger. When I want to get a better plumping effect, I put this on my bare lips before I start my makeup, then later either reapply or go in with a lipstick.

ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask I absolutely love this face mask! It is SO nourishing. My skin always feels so healthy, moisturized, clean, and calm after using this. It reduces irritation, revitalizes dull and tired skin, and gives me an overall healthy glow. Reduces inflammation and the appearance of pores. No negative side effects.

Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum This serum is great for tightening skin (not in an uncomfortable way), and closing pores. It definitely does what it says it does: it firms, smooths, and tightens skin. The effects are visible immediately with the first use, and even more with extended use. Weirdly enough, although it definitely creates the appearance of smoothness, I often feel a bit more texture - make sure to follow with a very hydrating moisturizer to avoid this. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturizing in a nourishing way, but it does help me retain moisture at least. Where this product falls short for me is the cleaning and nourishing that I get from other serums, although that’s not what this product is supposed to do anyways.

Zero Fuss - Styling Cream This did help form my waves a bit more, but the value in that was completely lost in comparison to the extreme frizz, dryness, and breakage this caused my hair. My hair wasn’t presentable even with a lot of work after using this. It looked fine while hair was still wet, but was horrifying once it dried. I had gotten to the point of almost no frizz before using this, and now I need to start the repair process all over again. Dimethicone is the second ingredient. If I’d paid attention I never would have touched this product.
