Kathleen Lights – KL Polish

I love Kathleen Lights! She’s so down to earth and I truly feel like she’s honest about her reviews.  I was super excited to find out that she started a brand called, KL Polish, for nail polish.  If you haven’t heard of her or her new line, definitely go check it out! There’s also a sale going on right now for the full set of Spring collection!

I got two colors from her first release in Spring 2017, St. Clair and Miss Honey.  


St. Clair is described as:

This pretty periwinkle shade will make your nails POP!

Periwinkle blue pastel nail polish. Creme finish. Cruelty-free. Vegan. 5/7/9-free.

Miss Honey is described as:

The perfect shade for Spring, Miss Honey is a warm, melon hue.

Melon-pink nail polish. Creme finish. Cruelty-free. Vegan. 5/7/9-free.

Quality & Color

The nail polish, with a basecoat and topcoat, lasts a little over a week.  It’s very opaque. You can get away with one coat but I personally prefer two coats to get the same color as the bottle.
Price

If you buy single ones, they are $8.50 each. US shipping is a flat fee of $4.95 per order, and Canadian shipping is $8.95 per order.  There are no refunds or exchanges unless it gets broken in the mail.
Processing & Shipping 

It took 1 day for processing, which is the time I ordered until the time it shipped.  It take 1 day for shipping time.  
Verdict

I think it’s totally worth it. The colors are so pretty and I think it’s pretty unique.  She has both neutral and bold colors.  I think the price point is pretty good.  Some nail polishes cost more than $10 like OPI.  Even Essie is pretty close, $9.  If you sign up by email, you can get a coupon for 10% off.

Rothy’s Flats

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It’s been so long since I posted anything! Life’s just been a bit hectic. 

I work in an office that requires business casual attire Monday through Thursday which means that it’s either heels or flats for shoes.  I’m definitely not someone that would sacrifice sleep to wake up early every workday morning to get dolled up for work, unfortunately! I’m the kind of person  that throws on random slacks with random blouses, a warm cardigan, and go! It’s also hard to be dressed up since I take public transportation to work.  

Sadly, my overworn $15 black flats from Payless were falling apart. Literally! Pieces of the fake leather is falling off.. 😅 I’ve tried Steve Madden flats and Kohl’s cushioned flats, but nothing came close to Payless.  The only thing about it is they just don’t last! So I started researching if there’s any flats out there that are actually comfortable.

I came across Tieks and Rothy’s.  

Tieks are around the $200 range and they’re super bendable.  You can put them in your purse or even pockets. It has a fake leather look and with many colors and designs. 

Rothy’s are $125 with two main designs, a round toe flat and a pointed toe flat.  They come in a variety of colors also but less than Tieks.  It has more of a canvas fabric.  Rothy’s is actually made out of reusable plastic that they’ve turned into thread to make these shoes! And they’re also machine washable and then air dried. 

I chose to go with Rothy’s! They had me at machine washable! And I’m not really into the scrunchy leather look of flats, if you know what I mean.  


The Lowdown!

Side, Top, Bottom Views of Rothy’s The Flat

SIZING

I’m usually a size 6.5 in most shoes.  Based on other reviews, I ended up going with size 7 even though the site says they are true to size.  I was worried that it might be loose and fall off my feet when walking which is my problem with most flats.  If it’s my size, they’re a bit too tight in the toes. But if I go a size higher, they fall off.  Size 7 turned out to be perfect! 

COLOR

I went with a more traditional professional color, navy.  I was actually deciding between Black, Navy (this one), and cherry solid.  I absolutely loved the cherry solid but I was in need of a staple color I can wear with all clothes. So that narrowed it down to black and navy! I ended up going with navy all because of the bright blue soles! It really stands out from the side view! It’s a neutral solid color but still has a cool pop to it!

As you can see, the shoes looks just like advertised! 

COMFORT

It’s seriously so comfortable! Almost feels like slippers. For a product that’s actually made out of plastic, it’s very flexible and comfortable.  The only thing that might bother you is the area behind your ankle. It comes with removable insoles so I believe you can use your own if you have some.  But I find the one it comes with is already pretty comfortable. My toes have a good amount of space and they don’t fall off when walking which was my main concern!
OVERALL

I believe it was totally worth it to invest in a more expensive flats! Maybe one day I’ll give Tieks a try when I decide to do a bigger splurge.  But for now I’m eyeing that cherry color flats form Rothy’s for my next purchase!  Btw I still haven’t had the need to wash them but when I do, I’ll try to update about it!


Have a great rest of your Monday everyone and hope this post helped if you were looking for new flats!

Too Faced: Chocolate Bar.

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I last made a review!

The other day I was testing out a makeup look for my Emilia cosplay and realized I needed more base eyeshadows.  If you guys would like to follow my Instagram where I post cosplay related stuff, follow me @Kellyjellycosplay.  The Naked 3 is really the only big eyeshadow palette that I have.  It has a lot of pink colors but not enough matte browns to use for base colors.  I was actually deciding between the Tartlette in Bloom palette, Chocolate Bar, or one of the Too Faced palettes.  In the end, I fell in love with the swatches from the Chocolate Bar!  And… it smells soooo good!! It smells like hot chocolate! Yumm!

The packaging is so cute!! Sorry the lighting isn’t that good! 😦

img_7528

The back of the box lists all the colors in the same way the palette is set up.

I really love how buttery and easy it is to blend!  Most of the colors are really pigmented.  I think the only color that really doesn’t show up well is White Chocolate which you’ll see from the swatches, that it’s really hard to see unless you’re looking in a specific angle with really good lighting to even see the swatch.  I love all the browns, both matte and shimmers!  There is a bit of fallout with the shimmers.  You’ll find glitter on your cheeks when applying it.  However, the fallout really isn’t that bad.  I don’t personally mind it.  It has 16 total shades.  I wore it with Etude House Primer from 1 PM in the afternoon to 11 PM at night.  That’s 10 hours! And it still looks just like when I first applied it!  It’s so long lasting!

 

Time to see the swatches!! Warning!! Photo heavy!

Influenster: ZzzQuil

There’s nights where you know you have to wake up early tomorrow and your body cannot adjust accordingly.  I’ve been using ZzzQuil for a while now even before I received this sample courtesy of Influenster.  I received the sample for testing purposes.

Note that ZzzQuil is not for pain. It is just for Sleep.  It’s strongly advised that when taking ZzzQuil, you should give yourself 7-8 hours to sleep or you will wake up groggy and tired.  

I try to give myself about an hour for the medicine to kick in.  Once you feel that you’re starting to get sleepy, go to sleep. From my experience, don’t try to fight it or try to stay awake longer.  You will end up not being able to sleep but feeling super drowsy as if your body is asleep but your mind is still awake.  It really helps me sleep completely through the night and feel well rested.

It’s also supposed to not be habit-forming which I find is true as long as you don’t depend on it every night.  Use it only when you know you need to.

HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Hair Care Collection

Hask hair care was kind enough to send me the Bamboo Oil Strengthening set through Brandbacker that comes in the cutest drawstring bag.

Here’s a little background on the company!

HASK is a collection of hair care products featuring exotic oils and other unique ingredients from around the world.  Initially introduced in Europe in 2012 with great success, distribution of the HASK Exotic Oil range has expanded worldwide over the past four years. The range appeals to women around the world of all ethnicities and with all hair types. Utilizing high quality ingredients, luxurious fragrances and fresh packaging, the HASK Exotic Oil range provides consumers with high-performance, salon quality results at an affordable price.

IMG_5790

The set includes the following items:

  1. Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo ($5.99)
  2. Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner ($5.99)
  3. Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner Packette ($2.99)
  4. Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Oil ($2.99)

It seems that they are available at Ulta beauty stores.  I’ve seen some items from the brand also at Target.

Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo
The shampoo claims to do the following:

  • Reinforces hair strands and nourishes hair
  • Protect fragile hair from damage and breakage
  • Improves flexibility and prevent split ends
  • Uses ProDefense Complex, biotin, and collagen
  • For all hair types

Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner
The conditioner claims to do the same as the shampoo.  I believe that its necessary to use it in a set to get the most benefit.

Verdict for Shampoo & Conditioner: (4/5) It does seem to do as it claims, reinforcing weak hair.  My hair was pretty dry and damaged from blow drying every time I showered which was about 3-4 times a week.  After about two uses, my hair did seem to be less fragile and felt stronger.  However because my hair is dry, I prefer to use shampoos and conditioners that are more for “smoothing and softening” or keeping it straight.  Hask does have a line specifically for what I’m looking for so I might go and buy that set to give it a try.  I’m not sure if it helps prevent split ends because I already have split ends.

 

Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner
The conditioner came in a blue packette.  The instructions said to apply on wet clean hair for about 10 minutes, and then rinse.  It also states to use only for once or twice a week.  I personally found this inconvenient.  I don’t really have the time to shower and then wait for 10 minutes to get back in the shower to rinse it off. I have hair masks and other deep conditioners that instructed for only 3-5 minutes which is more ideal for me.  It is priced very cheap though.  I did give it a try but I think I only left it on for about 5 minutes.  It didn’t really seem to do much.  The Pantene Deep Conditioner and Aussie 3-Minute Miracle does more in just 3 minutes.  (1/5)

Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Treatment
This oil claims to be lightweight and alcohol-free and is supposed to instantly absorbing oil provides hair with a luminous glow leaving no greasy residue.  I think all it really does is add shine to your hair.  I don’t think it contributes to the health of your hair at all.  If anything, I had to shower a day earlier because it made my hair a bit oilier.  I even tried to use a small amount, just enough for my ends.  (4/5) I would say that it does what it claims though.

 

Overall, I thought the products were different from what I usually use and it really is affordable.  If you’re looking for a healthier brand to try out, give Hask a try!  I thought the products worked well for it claimed to do.  However, I think I will be sticking to my Pantene shampoo and conditioner for now.

(Collective) ColourPop Haul.

Hello awesome people!

On trending ColourPop news, Jenn Im just had a collaboration together and it is to die for!  I love Jenn’s style since she started her career on Youtube.  She’s got a sweet, yet fun style which totally translates into her collab.

IMG_5851

They always hand-write the postcards! So cute!

There was a promotion when the collab first went live.  However, you couldn’t use any promotional codes.  Instead, you get a free limited edition Super Shock eyeshadow in the color “Birthday Boy” with any purchase.  Shipping in the U.S. is about $5. Processing & shipping took about a little more than a week.  Because I paid using Paypal with e-Check, the process took longer than if I just paid with a Credit Card.  So shipping is actually pretty quick.  There are two items that I actually bought a while back but I was waiting to buy more stuff from Colourpop to do a collective haul.

Swatches

 

Lippies

IMG_5858

Top to Bottom (Left Side only): Lumiere Lippie Stix, Dohee Lippie Pencil, Dohee Ultra Satin Lip

I love the formula of the Lippie Stix and Ultra Satin Lips.  It’s not too drying and the colors are amazing.  I really like Dohee in both the pencil and liquid lipstick.  Dohee is perfect for the spring and summer.  It’s a bright orange coral color.  I have really fair skin so I was worried it would either wash me out or be way too bright, but it turned out to be a good match!  Lumiere on the other hand was a bit too dark.  It looks more of a dark mauve than other people’s swatches.  I think it might work if I was going for a vampy look.  The Lippie Pencil and Lippie Stix are priced at $5 each, while the Ultra Satin Lip is priced at $6.  For the pigmentation and quality of these lippies, the price is very inexpensive.  Be warned that they do transfer easily though.

 

Eyeshadows

IMG_5852

IMG_5853

Birthday boy is very shimmery and matte.  It’s described as “cool tone golden shade.” Unfortunately since it was limited edition, you cannot buy it anywhere.  Cornelious is described as a “Mid-tone warm caramel in a Matte Finish”.  I love both colors and I am absolutely in love with Colourpop eyeshadows.  It’s so easy to apply and so pigmented.  The colors are beautiful.  They are only $5 a pop! Such a steal right?!

 

I can’t wait to buy more from them!

Hope you guys enjoyed the post!

May Ipsy Bag.

Hello everyone!

I actually canceled my Ipsy subscription for a few months now until I received an e-mail that totally reeled me in.  They were offering a free em eyeshadow palette with the May bag if I subscribed again but only for 48 hours!  I originally unsubscribed because even though it was matching me to what I originally put on my personality quiz, what I really wanted to get in my bags were brushes.  I know that a lot of people get at least one brush every bag and were getting tired of brushes.  Even when I changed my quiz every month and did the reviews, I was still not getting brushes.  So that’s why I originally unsubscribed.

 

I’ve always wanted to try out the em products ever since Michelle Phan launched her cosmetic lines but haven’t got a chance.

This month’s bag is really cute! I love that it opens up like an envelope.  So far all the bags I’ve received are closed with a zipper but this one has a button.  I’m looking forward to all the things in the bag this month!

Theme: Destination Chic

Ipsy’s May 2016 Glam Bag

IT Cosmetics: No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner (Sample Size, Full Size $22.00) (5/5)
The first item I was excited to try was the gel eyeliner. I’ve been looking for a good eyeliner for the waterline.

Gel Eyeliner Swatch

The swatch in the picture above is even after I tried to rub it off with just my fingers and then again, with some water. It did not budge at all! I give it a 5/5! It totally exceeded my expectations!  According to the box packaging, the eyeliner will set in 30 seconds.  When I was cleaning my hands with a Lysol wet wipe, it came easily so I would assume that it’s easily removable with makeup remover.  I think that’s fine though because you won’t need to pull on your skin too much to remove it.

Em Cosmetics – Artistic Eye Color Palette – Shade Play: London Greys ($28) (3/5)

Em Cosmetics Artistic Eyeshadow Palette in London Grey

After the eyeliner, the eyeshadow palette was next on my list! I believe this is a full-size eyeshadow palette.  On the Em Cosmetics website, it’s priced at $28.  That’s already more than the cost of my bag!  Sadly, they don’t have a name for each of the color so I’ll just have to describe the colors.

All the colors are shimmery, but some are more than others.  The palette comes with a bright navy blue, a dark navy blue that’s almost black, a grey, a cream-white, a bronze, and a light-nude peach.  I found that the colors with more shimmer (cream white, bronze, dark navy) were easily pigmented.  I didn’t have to go through it with many swipes to get the nice color.  The other colors were pigmented also but took some time to build up.

london_greys_3605970514860_s1179400_shadeplay_pdp_skin_1_1024x1024

This is the swatches shown from their website. It’s not as pigmented as this picture unless you really build up with a lot of product.

It also comes with two tiny brushes.  One of them is a double ended brush with an angled brush on one side and a fluffy brush on the other.  I find that the brushes would be way too small to use.

I do like the palette but I don’t like that it takes some time to build up.  Compared to Colourpop and Naked Palette, it’s not as creamy.  I do think that it’s a pretty good palette to take on the go and the colors are great for a smoky night time look.  I also love that there’s a big mirror on the compact.

The packaging itself is sleek and simple.  It’s an acrylic case. It opens magnetically. Some people don’t like it but I think it’s pretty cool.  It’s definitely not as cute as Too Faced palettes.

For this, I would rate 3/5.  It’s not bad and the price is decent.  There’s just better palettes out there. For example, Colourpop eyeshadows are cheaper and I find that quality and pigmentation is better.

 

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics – Caribbean Sun Bronzer Duo: Aruba (Sample Size, Full size $24.95) (4/5)

I really liked the Bronzer Duo. This is in the color set, Aruba.  The right side in the picture below is the blush.  It’s a peachy color.  The left side is the bronzer.  I’ve only swatched it so far but I really love the quality of it.  It’s super blendable and really pigmented.  It’s also easily buildable.  The only complaint I have is that the compact is very ugly.  It just looks so cheap and boring, almost something out of the dollar tree.  The mirror is gives a plus though.  The packaging it came in is so much better looking.  I just wish more effort was put in to the compact than the packaging it came in.

I loved the how it looks, swatched.  The combination of the two would look perfect during summer for that nice peachy beach glow.  I have super fair, neutral skin tone so these colors really give me some color.  I don’t have any bronzers in my collection yet so I don’t know how it compares to others.  But from what I’m experiencing, I’m giving it a 4/5, less one star for ugly packaging.

 

Glamour Dolls: Blending Brush #10 Sperm Whale Edition ($3.99) (3/5)

Finallllyyy! My first brush from an Ipsy Bag! It’s a fluffy blending brush.  You can never get enough blending brushes! It’s soft and dense enough.  The whale design is pretty cute.  I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know how well it picks up shadows.  Price-wise, Morphe brushes and even Wet N Wild brushes can be considered a bit better and cheaper, too.  So I gave it a mediocre rating.


Trissola: Chia Smoothing Hair Treatment Oil (Amazon $27.97?) (No rating)

I haven’t tried this product out yet but it does smell nice, not too strong.  Trissola‘s website doesn’t show the price on this item but on Amazon, it’s being sold for about $29 for 2 ounces (the link is in the title).  However, the Amazon one is spray while this one uses a medicine dropper.  I personally would prefer a spray bottle for more convenience.  Sorry guys, I don’t have a rating for this one yet.

 

Crazy Rumors: HibisKiss Natural Lip Color in Coral ($4.99) (3/5)


It is a colored lip balm, very similar to Baby Lips I previously reviewed about (Chapsticks Reviews).  It’s not as moisturizing but it does feel nice and gives your lips a slight bronzey tint.  I don’t really like the smell.  It smells like most natural organic cosmetics smell like, a bit plastic-like.  I do think that I would use it but for $5, I’m not sure if I purchase this, 3/5.

 

Well, that’s it for my review on this month’s bag.  What was your favorite item if you got one also?

Valentia: Skin Detoxifying Mask

Valentia was kind enough to send me another new sample! This time, it’s a detoxifying clay mask. You can purchase it from Amazon or directly from their site, Valentia.  It’s currently on sale for $25 only!

I really love the company’s products. If you guys haven’t seen my previous reviews, their products are always made with natural and organic ingredients.  They are also vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the USA.

Also, they are going to have a really good promotion starting from May 16, 2016 to June 1, 2016, they are offering 35% OFF the entire line on Valentia.com.  Make sure to use the coupon code, REFRESH35.

71crxyompzl-_sx522_

Back to review, here’s what it claims to do:

  • Clay minerals draw impurities, improve skin tone, and tighten pores for smoother firmer skin.
  • Plant Stem Cells help naturally decreases the level of pro-aging toxins and works to soother the skin, reduce redness, and improve evenness.
  • Spirulina is a botanical stimulant full of vitamins that hydrates the skins surface and contributes to tissue regeneration of the skin.
  • CoQ10 helps lessens the appearance of wrinkles by reducing free radical damage and stimulating health collagen production.
  • Hibiscus & Cranberry Fibers both lend their anti-aging properties to firm and reinforce the skin, helping to reduce the creation of new wrinkles.

 

The Final Verdict:

I give it a 5/5! I love the smell.  It smells fruity due to the hibiscus and cranberry, but not too overwhelming.  However, if you are sensitive to smell, this might not be for you.  I followed the directions and put a pretty even layer all around my face avoiding the eye area as instructed.  I didn’t do a thick layer but not too thin either.  It did tingle at first but it went away right away.  The mask dried super quick like in 3 minutes.  Automatically, my face felt tight. After 20 minutes, I washed it off using my muslin cloth in circular motion.  Parts of face at one time, not the whole face at once.  I noticed right away that my redness were practically gone and my skin just looked a brighter and firm.  It was also hydrating and soft as it claims!  I’m not too sure collagen production but it really did work wonders for just a one time use. I highly recommend!  Thanks Valencia as always!

MAKE Beauty Review.

Hi everyone! Thanks to Brandbacker, MAKE Beauty sent me two samples to try out and review.

Here’s a little background information about the brand, MAKE beauty:

MAKE is a brand that finds beauty in inspiration. A brand that believes there are no beauty rules. That each individual is driven by an artistic approach to their own personal reality. That it’s beautiful to be inspired by your imagination. To embrace a whimisical approach to life. To be outspoken, intelligent, confident and un-self conscious.

Each year MAKE selects a resident makeup artist to collaborate with an expert artisan and creative outside of the beauty industry to inspire MAKE color palettes and create limited-edition concept collections.

MAKE is made in our hometown, NYC. It is paraben-free and never tested on animals.

A percentage of sales is donated to our non-profit partner, We See Beauty Foundation, supporting women-led, worker-owned cooperative businesses across the Americas.

They sent me two items: Silk Cream Lipstick in the color Taffy and Matte Finish Eyeshadow in the color Alabaster.

  

Silk Cream Lipstick – Taffy ($25) 

It claims to do the following:

Vivid, saturated color that does double duty as a protective moisturizing treatment with antioxidant vitamins, rosehip, soybean and safflower oils. Aloe and chamomile extracts further condition lips. Feather-resistant and intensely pigmented in true-wear shades.

The Final Verdict: The price is a bit average.  The color reminds me of the Laffy Taffy candy from Willy Wonka in the color strawberry but more vibrant.  I don’t even know if the kids nowadays still eat it! For those who never had that candy, the color is a like berry pink.  It’s very creamy and glides on easily.  It’s also very pigmented.  It has a bit of a sheen to it but not so much like a gloss.  I think the lipstick really does what it claims.  It’s very moisturizing. Because it’s not a matte lipstick, it will transfer when eating though. 5/5

 

Matte Finish Eyeshadow – Alabaster ($25) 

It claims to do the following:

Turn heads with this stunning, intensely pigmented shadow in an array of blendable shades. The velvety matte powder goes on smoothly with a crease-resistant, oil-free formula that looks fresh for hours after you’ve applied it. Vitamins C and E help to provide antioxidant protection for the delicate eye area. Apply dry or wet for a more intense finish.

The Final Verdict: Price-wise, it’s a bit on the higher-end for just one color.  I can’t give you an accurate review about the pigmentation because the color they sent for review was a very nude basic color.  I think it would be good for a more natural no-makeup look.  It is definitely blendable and to get the nude to show more on my very fair skin, I just kept layering more.  I’ve had it on for about 5 hours and there’s no sign of creasing.  However, it has faded a lot.  Note that I didn’t use eye primer because I really wanted to test the staying power. I do like the consistency of the powder though.  Even though it’s a powder, it does feel kind of creamy.  I think if you applied it wet, it would have a better staying power. Personally, I think there are other brands for eyeshadows that have a much longer staying power. (3/5)

I really like that their brand doesn’t test on animals and is hyperallergenic.  I would like to try more of their stuff in the future!  They also provided a coupon code for my readers.

Enjoy a special 20% off sitewide on Makebeauty.com with the code MAKEYOURSELF, valid through 3/1-4/15.

OZ Naturals: Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer Review

OZ Natural was kind enough to send me a sample of their Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer.



Here’s some background on the company!

Co-Founder and Certified Esthetician, Angela Irish launched OZ Naturals as a company that embodies everything she’s passionate about — healthy skin, anti-aging, natural ingredients, and utilizing the latest technology to formulate the highest quality skin care products on the market.

Utilizing her personal experience of skin issues, that she understands that when your skin is unhealthy it can negatively affect your self-esteem. After try tons of products over the years she was always left with the same skin issues as before.

Sometimes even worse than before. Angela knows how disheartening this can be, especially when so many skin care products make huge claims, and simply do not deliver. It’s especially frustrating when the cost of those products are hardly affordable, and you realize once again that you’ve wasted your money.

While it’s true that beautiful skin is also hereditary, healthy skin comes from taking care of the inside and outside of our bodies. However, finding the right products for your skin can be the toughest part of the equation. This is why OZ Naturals was founded, to create healthy, premium skin care products to help those who weren’t naturally born with perfect skin, to obtain more perfect skin. The kind of skin that everyone deserves to have.

The moisturizer claims to do the following:

  • Clinical Strength in Anti-wrinkles
  • Anti-aging
  • Nourish skin
  • Paraben-free
  • Free from “Harmful” Alcohol
  • Cruelty-free
  • For all skin types

 

It’s a pretty balanced consistency between liquid and cream.


The Verdict

I’m only in my mid-twenties so I’m not at the stage where I need to worry about fine lines and wrinkles.  I’m still at the preventive stage where I’m trying to prevent any damage and wrinkles.  Thus, my review isn’t entirely a good review.  This product is probably geared towards more middle aged women.

However, for the moisturizing aspect of it, I would give it a solid 4/5.

Be careful when you use any product that has Retinol  because you need to have good sunscreen protection if you are using it during the day.  If you use any product with Retinol, it can cause more harm to your skin because your skin is actually more vulnerable.

I’ve only used this at night after cleaning my face.

I don’t get any irritation or break outs from this product either.

I would recommend that you take the time to check out the list of ingredients and other reviews before making a commitment to use this product.  I do feel that it’s a really good moisturizer though.
