Hair Color -L'Oreal -Superior Preference Hair Colour

Terrible product! It drips like crazy and I've been dying my hair since middle school. It smells so strong my eyes watered. Nasty stuff. This has never happened to me before. It's almost impossible to spread because it drips so much. It's very watery. Gets everywhere. The Revlon colorsilk dye for $3 is better than this. Do not buy! I only got this because it was on sale at Ulta and I had a coupon. Waste of money.


Conditioner -L'Oreal -Hair Expertise Extraordinary Oil

It's not often that I'm impressed with conditioners (drugstore or high end), but this was a pleasant surprise for my fine, thin and long hair. As soon as I rinse it out (with cool water) I can tell in the shower that my hair is soft and conditioned. It never leaves my ends looking oily, and it doesn't make my hair super slippery to interfere with putting it up. I only need about a quarter sized dollop to cover my ends, and this smells really nice and somewhat warm. I think I paid somewhere around $6 for this at Target, and I've had the bottle for a while, which says a looot considering I used to overdo it with other conditioners. When dry I can run my fingers through my hair and it feels so soft and not tangly or dry. I'll definitely repurchase and maybe even try the shampoo too!

Masks -L'Oreal -Detox & Brighten Mask Pure Clay Mask

I’m in to my fourth week of using this product, I have found the benefits definitely come with regular usage.
I paid just over £5.00 for the mask, absolutely fantastic value for money in my opinion! The packaging is lovely – a nice heavy, square, glass jar. I have been using once every three days on clean, exfoliated skin. As others have mentioned, I tend to pop this on before a shower if I can as it is a little messy when it comes to washing it off.
I apply with a flat foundation brush, this uses the least amount of product and provides an even application. It is quite scented, but a lovely fresh scent I can quite happily put up with.
For me, this has combatted my clogged pores and started to work on some stubborn blackheads on my nose. Keeps my skin oil free and sooo smooth.
Happy bunny here! No reaction from my ever so sensitive skin either 😊

Hair Color -L'Oreal -Root Cover Up Temporary Grey Concealer Spray

Wonderful! Buys you some time until you can color the roots! Originally purchased light to medium blonde but it wasn't dark enough - gray roots were still there! Purchased dark blonde and perfecto! Blends in perfectly and stays until I wash it out - which is 2-3 days since my hair isn't oily. Perfect especially for when something unexpectedly comes up and there is no time for coloring the hair.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

On my second tube of this mascara and I won't repurchase it again. I bought the first tube in London and the second in Italy as I wrongly thought that there was a formulation/batch issue with the first one but I believe it is just a very thick dry formula. It takes a thousand coats to achieve nice volume and when you think you're done something weird happens. Twenty minutes later in the mirror and most of it it's gone, so I always end up adding a final coat and the very end of my make up.
The tube doesn't last any time at all. Nice and dry the first week, solid and dry by the end of week two. You get nice results at the start but honestly too much fuff and too short lived.

New favorite mascara! Delivers such phenomenal length, and perfect volume! Pleasantly surprised to realize, in tears at a dr.'s appt., this (not waterproof) didn't run!!! Truly flawless.

Liquid -L'Oreal -True Match Liquid Foundation (All Shades)

Its name is spot -on really, says it all. It looks like amazing skin. Lasts all day, is absolutely seamless and gives a stable, satin finish. During winter, my HG is the Pro-Matte Infallible (oily skin here), but this is better for the summer months. Will definitely buy again, this truly looks like your skin but if it were naturally great.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Miss Manga Rock

Miss Manga Rock wears excellently on a 12 hour day! It does clump your lashes, but at the same time, it still gives it a bit of a feathery look, which I liked. I love the brush type for the application. It does make your lashes feel super crispy, and it's a bit tough to remove.

It's cheap, cute, and lasts all day! I would recommend it.... if you like the clumpy look. Otherwise, skip this one!

I love this mascara!!! I have short & super straight lashes, but this mascara gives me the most fluffy, separated, and flattering lashes!!! Since my lashes weigh down easily w/ any formula, I first curl them then apply mascara to the mid-shaft to the tips — I find I get the best application that way and my lashes still look sooo good!!

This mascara, in my opinion, can compare to my benefit roller lash. They are both suuuuper pretty, but the Lash Paradise is just more fluffy, separated, & beautiful!!! It kind of one ups it in every category lol

I love this mascara, it doesn't smudge on me unless I spray setting spray on it. I haven't noticed it fading or flaking off either. It doesn't have a noticeable smell and it doesn't like take forever to put on you know?? Like when a mascara is SUPER dry and takes like 10 years to get a good coat on? That's not this. It's not super wet, but it doesn't take forever to get a good coat. You have control but don't have to sit there forever. Also you know when you smear a tiny amount of mascara onto your lid and then you try to get it off with a q-tip and it just keeps freaking smearing until you have to get makeup remover and restart your eyeshadow??? This doesn't do that either lol

I have pretty long lashes tbh but this adds a nice amount of volume while separating them and keeps the curl (I curl them before). It's not a wet formula but its not overly dry either. I like it the best after like two weeks when it's like a LITTLE dry but not terribly dry. I buy a new one about every 2 or 3 months, it starts to get dry and doesn't look as good, but I like it.

If you want like a clumpy and super dark mascara, maybe this isn't for you, but if you have pretty long lashes and want some volume, this separates and adds a beautiful amount of volume without weighing your lashes down.

The one I used before was the maybelline lash sensational and that stuff was a lot goopier and transferred more, and kind of weighed down my lashes the older it got. It was clumpier and I didn't like it as much. Maybe you're into that tho. Not my thing.

Shampoo -L'Oreal -Elvive Extraordinary Oil Deep Nourishing Shampoo For Very Dry Hair

on 5/21/2018 12:10:00 PM

I love the scent, it matches the serum, very sensual and relaxing scent but that's about it, this shampoo dried my hair out like nothing else, I felt that I had just washed it with clothes detergent, the roots were squeaky clean and very dry, the rest of my hair was completely tangled, rough, dry and unmanageable, I had no idea how I was going to detangle that mess, I put lots of conditioner and I was able to comb thru but it dried very frizzy, shiny but frizzier than ever, tons of static, a complete disaster. I couldn't find any protein or wheat protein in the ingredients just cocamidopropyl betaine which I am allergic to and makes me loose hair but I didn't seem to loose more strands than normal, will return this horrible shampoo and return to the Elvive for dry curly hair formula.

Got a sample and tried it.colorless gel like consistency but overly perfumed.i didn't like the scent it's cloying and smells like cheap aftershave cologne for men. I used it both day&night time.in day time it didn't make my skin oily but i didn't feel like it is moisturizing enough either.gave my skin matte and soft finish.i tried the leftover from the sample before bed after bath.my skin gets tight after shower and this didn't calm down my tightness.and next morning i woke up with 2 pimple on my chin area.i wasn't pmsing or on my period.i am sure this lotion would broke me out if i use regularly. i won't purchase it even the texture and the original size bottles look nice.ingredient list way too long.heavily fragranced,contains cones,paraben.


Shampoo -L'Oreal -Elvive Extraordinary Oil - Nourishing Shampoo for Dull, Dry Hair

on 5/20/2018 1:43:00 PM

I bought this product because it was on special. I prefer salon products, but at the moment I do not have the money, so I am testing various drugstore products marketed at dry, damaged hair. I felt the quality of the product was decent. It is far from a salon quality product, but at the price one can hardly expect it to be. It did not dry my hair out excessively but I am a bit concerned about how much it lathers. It feels very soapy and I wonder if it would not dry out my hair were I to use it continuously. It claims to nourish hair, but I did not feel that it did this for my hair. I would rather avoid drugstore hair products if possible, but at the moment I cannot afford professional products. The packaging is attractive and looks expensive (which is in many ways irrelevant but it makes me feel good). It left my hair nice and clean, without irritating my scalp. Although this product is not prefect, I would buy it again if I needed or wanted to save money. Buy if: -Your hair is mildly/moderately dry. -You are not expecting a salon quality product -You want a reasonable (but not excellent) product at a fair price. -Attractive packaging is important to you Don’t buy if -You are after a salon quality product. -Your hair is oily -if your hair is very dry you might do better if you buy a conditioner from the Dove range.

Love this; I use it before drying and it does shorten drying time and helps derange and smooth my very fine hair without being too heavy. And the low price makes this a staple for me


Moisturizers -L'Oreal -Hydra Genius Mattifying Water Gel (Normal/Oily)

foto

A few months ago, I wrote a rave review for Peter Thomas Roth's Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. Now, however, I can safely say I'd take L'Oreal's Hydra Genius over PTR's expensive moisturizer any day (sorry, PTR!).

I enjoy basically everything about this moisturizer: the packaging, the scent, the consistency of the product, and the performance. I don't usually care too much about packaging, but I have to say L'Oreal did a really nice job with this product, which comes in a weighty glass bottle with a pump. The packaging makes this feel like a luxury moisturizer. It was also a logical choice for the consistency of the product, which is very gel-like. In brief, this moisturizer does exactly what I want it to do: hydrate my skin while controlling oil. It sinks into the skin quickly and keeps me matte all day. It also sits well under makeup. Bada bing, bada boom.

One thing that may turn some people off: While I wouldn't call this a heavily-scented moisturizer, I wouldn't want it to be any more scented than it already is. The scent isn't overwhelming, but it's definitely there, and a faint little aroma lingers throughout the day. So if you REALLY dislike or cannot tolerate scented products, this may smell a little too strong for you. However, I like the scent of this moisturizer, which really just smells... nice, in a clean sort of way. It isn't floral or sweet-smelling. If I had to compare it with something, I might say it evokes aftershave a little bit. It doesn't smell particularly feminine or masculine, though. I think anyone could get away with smelling like this.

Lastly, the price. I paid $14 for this at Target and saw it selling for $19 at CVS. Honestly, it's kind of pricey for a drugstore face cream. But I have to say this is one of those rare, RARE expensive-for-drugstore items that's actually worth it. I'm not usually willing to pay for high-priced drugstore items; depending on the item, I'll either go with a cheaper drugstore option or pay $10 more to get something really good at Sephora. I am happy enough with this moisturizer that I am willing to pay $14 for it... but you could probably get the job done for less. Probably. I'm sure I could have when I was young(er), but then I turned 25 and my face decided to hate EVERYTHING that had worked for me for years. FML.

So, anyway, if you were curious about this moisturizer but put off by the high price, I say it's worth splurging on. It's good for oily but not-16-anymore skin that can't handle intensely drying, anti-acne products anymore. continued >>
