Lotions/ Creams -Deborah Lippmann - Steppin' Out Nourishing Foot Cream
dehmorais 6/11/2013 12:59:00 PM
Wow. Just got a sample of this and JESUS it does smell amazing! Like cake batter as someone said plus bananas. I applied on my foot last night and yes sure it's moisturizing but it's like a hand cream. It's not enough moisturizing for feet at all!!! I would buy this just to use it as hand cream because of the amazing scent!
This is just an expensive water. It's good just for refreshing, the only thing I like about this is the feeling when I spray it in my face in the summer, that's it! I don't think it does anything for my acne prone skin, really. And also I've seen too many dermatologists and people saying that thermal water actually dehydrates the skin, and I think it makes sense.
Cleansers -Lancome - Huile Douceur Remove All Deep Cleansing Oil
dehmorais 8/7/2012 1:30:00 PM
I was looking for an oil to remove eye and face makeup. This is just too thick for me and it DOESN'T REMOVE WATERPROOF MASCARA. I bought this months ago and thank God I'm almost done with it. The consistency is just too thick, and you have to work with it to get your makeup off, it doesnt remove waterproof mascara neither regular mascara properly. I ALWAYS have to go back and wash my lashes again and again with another product. Don't recomend. There are only 2 good things about this product: it doesnt sting my eyes even though i always manage to spill on my eyes. And it smells nice. But the packaging is not good, it leakes.
Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Cellulite Shield Advanced Body Moisturizer
dehmorais 6/17/2012 1:36:00 PM
I bought this for thw winter time when I don't wanna use a cellulite cold cream so I thought i would give this a try. It's OK. The texture reminds me of a hair conditioner!!! It's tooooo thick, it doesn't absorbs really well, it does leave a waxy feel on the skin. But i just use it so by the time it's spring/summer i will be done with it. I don't see any difference in my cellulite, but that's probably because i should be working out more and drinking more water. Lotions can't do miracles!
Not amazing. It doesn't absorbs well, and it's winter where I live. It leaves this greasy film on my skin, although it does moisturize. But I wouldn't reccomend or buy again, since, for the price, it's not worth it to me. Also, the pump broke and it's a mess to apply. The smell is great, because it has almost no scent!
WOW. Really surprising fragrance. I ordered a sample of this because as reading the notes I was sure this was the one somebody was wearing it. I asked her but she couldnt remember the name, but I'm almost sure is this one. At first spray you're gonna think "OH NO this is man's cologne yuck" and then, surprisingly 1 minute later the fragrance calms down and turns into a beautiful deep, with a hint of sweet pomegranate. I think it suits man better, but I could definetly see myself wearing it in wintertime. But I would to smell a men wearing it. The hint of sweet pomegranate behind the smoke is really nice. At first I thought "headache in a bottle" and now I think "deep and nice". But definetly not a fragrance for summer. It can be overwhelming.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Coconut Lime Verbena
dehmorais 10/16/2011 12:05:00 AM
Very nice, I got a sample of this and I really like it. The name and the light green color of the lotion describes very well the smell. It's like if u had taken a lemon leaf and a coconut lotion and mixed them. Of course the lime is gonna be the stronger note. Nice and pleasant.
One of the best heat protectans I've ever used. I have thick hair, and a lot of hair actually. I apply something around a dime size and it's perfect. Leaves my hair soft, shinny, amazing!!! The only thing I don't like about it is the smell. But the smell doesnt linger on my hair after I blow dry it, but I hate it. It's similar to the smell of the Kerastase elixir oil. Also reminds me a lot of moringa butter from the body shop. But this is so good for my hair that I'm gonna buy it again =)
Styling Products -Redken - Smooth Down Heat Glide ] [DISCONTINUED]

Again I got into the hype!!!! This is gross!!! My hair is very thick, but even for my hair, this product is just TOO THICK. Not even a body cream is thick like this. It leaves a film in my hair, that I HATE. IT FEELS EXACTLY LIKE GLUE ON MY HANDS, I HAVE TO WASH MY HANDS 3X AFTER I USE THIS. My hands feel so stick, it's annoying. I don't even apply too much, less than a dime size, and still, it's super greasy. I don't use a flat iron, I just wash and then apply this before I blow dry it. Honestly it does look good after I dry but it makes more difficult to blow dry it since it leaves my hair so thick! I never understood when people said that a product would leave a film in their hair, but now I do. Thats exactly what it does. This is awful.
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)
dehmorais 10/11/2011 6:15:00 PM
One of the best cleansers I have ever tried. I doesnt remove eye make up but that's fine. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clen without drying it. I have oily skin, with dry patches in a few places. Like my nose sometimes gets really dry. The smell is very subtle. This one and Effaclar bar are my 2 favorites in the world. Cetaphil + Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel = love
Once you learn how to use it and how to work with the brush, this will give you AMAZING, HUGE, VOLUMINOUS LASHES! I HATED this when i first got it and then i learned how to use it. My advice is: wipe the brush on the tube twice before you apply and use only one side of the brush. I love the effect that this mascara gives to my lashes.
Just received my mascara and I'm kinda disappointed. The color is amazing, super black. But the effect is not that cool. Doll lashes =// It doesn't add lenght or volume. Dries really fast, clumps your lashes together. It looks nice, nothing special. I'm not using this for going out at night. Definetly not. I won't repurchase since it's so hard to find, and here in Brasil, it costs ~~just~~ $45.00!!!!!! It used to cost $9.00 then they decided to change the price to Brazil, how nice huh? Thank God I paid wayy cheaper than that.
First of all: the scent. It reminds me of Body shop body butter moringa. Strong, flower scent, disgusting. The texture: thin, silky, thinner than moroccanoil and it doesn't weigh down like moroccanoil, and I do have thick hair. And a lot of it. Why is not worth it: it's just another oil promising something. The smell really bothers me and it's just a finishing oil, it doesn't hydrate your hair if you leave it on overnight, i've tried. It doesn't do anything except give a llittle bit of shine and get rid of the frizz. Not buying again because of the smell. But if can't decide between this and moroccanoil, I would say buy this. Moroccanoil smells a 100 times better, BUT it's too thick and the Elixir has a wonderful texture.
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser
dehmorais 8/8/2011 12:05:00 PM
I have oily skin. I use both effaclar and lipikar soap in bars. But the bars start melting and getting all nasty (even if you cut the soap in 4 pieces and use each till the end, they will melt or dry completely) So I decided I wanted a liquid cleanser/soap. So I bought this one, the lady at the drugstore told me it would cleanse just as the soap... innocently I trusted her. But she was wrong. This cleanser doesn't clean like the bar soap =/. This is a very gentle cleanser, almost doesn't foam, you'll waste so much product if you try to foam, it's awful. And this dried ot my skin A LOT, even though it doesn't feel harsh on the skin. I don't recommend this to any skin type. really useless expensive product.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Blackest Black
dehmorais 4/16/2011 10:10:00 PM
WOW, this really sucks. I tried this yesterday because I got it as a gift. The brush is awful and so small, gives no volume, nothing. Awful, it just dyed my eyelashes black, that's all it did. The biggest problem for me is that SMUDGES like no other mascara I've ever tried. I would never buy this.
