Have been using the Beauty Toolbox cellulite massage cup for 3 weeks and started seeing a difference within a couple of days of using it.


Lipstick -Unlisted Brand -Tangee Natural

on 1/17/2018 9:04:00 PM

I wasn’t around when tangee was 1st popular but this is awesome. it’s a creamsicle in color & is like mood lipstick. It changes color! It’s available (& blush) from the Vermont country store catalogue. The container looks like a chanel tube but w the tangee logo on its cap. Awesome product!!


Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Global Beauty Care Collagen Mask

I love these masks. Cheap but works! I use twice a month. I actully put gloves on and squeeze the yummy gooey stuff in another container. The masks it self is too much IMO and i perfer to just take a brush, paint it on, let it sit, and than rinse it off. and get the same results
It not drying just brightness and renewal feeling. No break outs,


Conditioner -Unlisted Brand -Aromatherapy Associates Conditioner

on 1/17/2018 6:46:00 PM

I originally tried this shampoo at a JW Marriott. I forgot to pack mine and was why not try the hotel shampoo. Some Marriott even carry Aveda, so this might not be bad. The smell is very manly scented. I was really put off since I smell of men aftershave. But, my hair felt so clean and clarified of products from the day. Okay, it felt great and clean. The smell does go away once the hair is dry. The next morning, I was able to run my comb through my hair with no problems. Minimal knots on the back of my head, but nothing that was unmanageable. It gave my hair bounce and it kept a curl all day. I really like it. I did use the matching shampoo.

I have been using this off and on for a year now. I really enjoy this product and no flakey scalp or itchiness. It is pricey, but worth it.

Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand -Vasanti Eye Wonder Triple Action Peptide Eye Cream

on 1/17/2018 4:30:00 PM

I really love the Vasanti products I've tried over the years and I also love that this is a CANADIAN company with first rate products - totally effective, luxury type products but at less than luxury prices. My big complaint though, is that they have some really lame errors in their packaging/labelling. They make a wonderful Serum and nowhere on their site or on the bottle or on the box does it say to shake the product before using....nope, that's on a really tiny sticker on the UNDERSIDE of the bottle, clearly an afterthought but one they should have corrected (and still haven't). Ditto this eye cream....on the jar and on the website, it tells you to use it day and night for 28 days and then as needed for maintenance but on the box, it clearly says to use it for 36 days and nights. Stuff like this is just sloppy and careless and makes a company look unprofessional. I've posted about this on the Vasanti site and didn't even get a reply. And it's why I took off a "lippie" for packaging, Okay, so I got that off my chest and now onto the product itself....

The first jar I got of this was clearly old stock. I got it home, opened it and knew from looking at it that something was wrong and the "cream" had turned into a little waxy blob at the bottom of the jar. I returned this to Shoppers Drug Mart and got a new jar and that's when the "old stock" issue became apparent because the outer cardboard box graphics had been totally redesigned. And I love my new eye cream. It's 20 ml. (as opposed to the 15 ml. that seems standard with eye creams) for $42, making it considerably more affordable than my "go to" Clarins Super Restorative, and the jar packaging means I will get every bit of product I paid for. The cream itself is lush and rich feeling but not at all greasy. It really hydrates my under eye area, helping concealer to apply in a smoother, less dry and patchy way. I've been trying out IT's Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer for the past few weeks and that product can look dry and scaly but not if I use this eye cream and leave it to soak in for a few minutes. Eye Wonder promises to reduce "the look" of dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. I don't know if it will (reducing "the look" is such a nebulous claim) but I really like this product simply for providing hydration to my eye area without irritating my eyes at all. Super product.

I got this in Jan 2018 boxycharm. I don’t like the packaging I’m worried is going to leak in my purse! And it is not much product I would not buy this. It really does plump ur lips thou! & I like the color it’s kind of a watermelon color. It makes your lips tingle.


Foundations -Unlisted Brand -Crunchi Beautifully Flawless Foundation Liquid

on 1/17/2018 10:47:00 AM

I'm in LOVE with this foundation! All natural, green make-up (good for my skin!) and it goes on beautifully. I have dry skin in the middle of a midwest winter, but this still looks lovely (as long as I moisturize well beforehand). I've tried way too many foundations over the years, and decided to "go green" in December. I sampled a number of natural foundations, and this one blew them all away. Best foundation I've ever used -- green or not green. It also smells nice! The only drawback is the price, but a little goes a long way, and I'm considering it an investment in my skin. No more icky chemicals sinking in all day. Just the good stuff! (Vitamin C and E, Aloe Leaf, etc) I honestly feel like my skin tone has improved by using this for the past 2 weeks.

They have a great sample card you can order for fairly cheap from their website. I did this to find my shade, and fell in love.

Now I've ordered the primer too, which has received great reviews on green beauty blogs. Excited to try it with the foundation! I'll have to report back once I've tested it.

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk

on 1/17/2018 6:27:00 AM

I am basing this review on a decanted sample I bought from a Reddit thread.
I have an autoimmune condition (a couple actually) and I have very dehydration prone skin. I can't use anything foaming whatsoever.

Oil cleansing is not for me. I have large pores and my skin doesn't shed dry skin easily, even with exfoliating products of which I need to be very gentle with anyway. Oil cleansing leads to trapped dry skin cells and sebum under the layer of oil and I get closed comedones.

I have been using Cetaphil for a while and while it rarely causes problems there are some days it can really irritate my eyes. I don't wear heavy makeup; clear mascara and maybe eyeliner on the lashline, tinted SPF, gel or cream blush. That's it. Cetaphil has a hard time getting that off and I have to use both micellar water and Cetaphil. This is too drying. I tried using just micellar water but it's not cleansing enough in one go, I have to use a couple of soaked cotton pads...too much product=dryness. There are other cream cleansing options but they all have their downsides and so I kept returning to Cetaphil because, above all, it causes no skin redness and swelling in my cheeks (I have rosacea)
Enter Stratia. I have decants of this and soft touch AHA. I am reviewing the AHA later because it's a very gentle product and would like more time to report results.
So far, I am really enjoying Velvet Cleansing milk. Its a thick, white and velvety cream that does feel oily when I spread it on my skin. when I rinse,I experience no dryness or irritation and it doesn't seem to leave a residue. It has removed the light makeup I wear easily and so I will continue to test this out and update in 3 weeks.


Brows -Unlisted Brand -The Browgal by Tonya Crooks Clear Eyebrow Gel

This product makes my brow and the packaging is strong too. Easily brought and fit to the bag. The only reason I will not purchase again is, I rarely use it, so the amount of the product is too much.


Lipstick -Unlisted Brand -Flormar Deluxe cashmere

Hi!
The one that I have(& it's in the photo) it's DC24.A red with blue undertone.
The packaging is sleek,gold.The lipstick is thick,so it doesn't break,but,if you want to apply stricly on the lips(when I'm in a hurry I use the lipstick as it is & it ends up even besides the lips) you have to use a lipbrush.
Even it's a matte shade it doesn't dries the lips,beeing creamy.The orchid complex,the shea butter and the cocoa do moisturizes & keeps the color in place for several hours.
I think it's more fitted for brunettes than for the blondes,but red suites everybody,right?

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Pure Vitamin E Oil (all brands)

It doesn't absorb as well on my face, and tends to make me break out a bit. However, I put it on my cracked heels and rough spots on my feet, then put on thick socks before I go to bed. My feet are looking sooooo much better!
( I use Jojoba on my face, and love it!)

Masks -Unlisted Brand -Elizavecca - Milky Piggy Hell Pore Clean Up Mask

on 1/16/2018 7:06:00 PM

Works kind of like those peel off masks on the internet, but is ineffective. It makes your skin feel like it’s suffocating, and made my oily acne prone skin feel itchy. It’s the equivalent of putting elmer’s glue on your face. Far too harsh to be worth using for blackheads

Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand -Dermalactives Lionesse Gem White Pearl Facial Filler

on 1/16/2018 6:40:00 PM

Just like the reviewer named Whimsey, I saw this product at a bridal expo. I fell for the high pressure pitch because it did make my bags virtually disappear. The rep pulled me aside as I walked by and sat me down to start his pitch. He patted this stuff under one eye, fanned it a bit, and showed me a mirror. It was dramatic! He then did the other eye, all while telling me how this stuff is used. The price kept going down until I finally agreed to $100....keep in mind the price started at $799! After walking around the expo for a while I went to the bathroom. It looked as if I had pancake batter smeared under my eyes! People must've thought I was insane! I washed it off and went home, ashamed that I fell for such a scam because of my own self consciousness over my eyes. But, now I could experiment with it. It works best by using a VERY tiny amount...less than a drop...all around each eye. Do not pat, but swipe a thin film under eyes and any leftover goes on my eye lids. Allow to dry completely for 10 minutes (its dry after 2, but I make sure by waiting longer). If you see white film, you've put on too much. Try not to move your eyes around during this time...you can blink, and look around, but don't put on makeup. You will feel it tighten up and the bags will disappear. You cannot put liquid makeup on top, but I swipe a mineral powder over for good results. It lasts all day..although by evening , he bags are back, but not as bad. I've been using it two weeks now and my eyes do look better even without it on. LIoness instructs you to pat it on at night once a week, but I liked the results during the day. It works similarly but better than Sudden Change...which is a clear gel that artificially tightens the skin. Sudden Change is cheaper and easier on the pocketbook. I would purchase again if I could find it for less than $100. Especially if it lasts for 6 months or more.


Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Eternity Aqua

on 1/16/2018 3:05:00 PM

I got this off Ebay in a small size because eternity rollerballs weren’t on there. This looks small for 0.20oz but it smells delish. Like a watery floral w a bit of grapefruit thrown in. Reminds me of DG Light Blue a bit. It’s not super expensive. I smell a bit of vanilla thrown in like an orange creme frosting smells great! A great diversion from heavy winter scents. I would wear this year around! But it’s a fun scent tropical & sublime. I like every CK frag I’ve tried.
