I am glad it worked out for others, but on me, it looks like I got beaten up with a bruised eye. Yes gorgeous purple,blue,reddish pink. All of the colors of flesh beaten to the pulp. This color reminds me of zombie halloween make up I used three years ago. I'll wait til halloween rolls around again for some bloody gore use.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - jessica simpson FANCY LOVE 2009
eatmyshort 5/3/2013 2:43:00 AM
I don't know why some people say Fancy Love smells like Burberry. I cannot stomach any of the Burberry line perfumes. They all give me a head ache. I didn't get a head ache from this perfume at all. Of all of Jessica Simpson's fragrances, I love this one the most. Fancy Love is sweet, milky ,gentle ,whipped cream rich ,warm ,non cloying, soft like you're on a puffy cloud. There are no rough edges. It is not a sweet tooth gourmand, but it is as close to a hybrid between warm rich comforting sweet milk candy and floral. I find this fragrant very unique. On me it lasts all day. I only use one spray on my sleeves. The endurance is amazing. Although this is a cute fluffy sweet youthful fragrant, there is something that opens my senses to detect a more refined sophistication with Fancy Love without being obnoxious, desperate , or pure head ache in a bottle like many Burberry perfumes. It can be either a day time fragrant or evening . I wore this fragrant in the 90 + degree heat and no head ache at all.
while this product might be good for some people, it is not for me. I like the price though. How can you fail with only a few dollars? However, as far as performance goes, it does nothing for me. It is hard like candle. I cannot spread it. If you rub it on your skin, it hurts. I don't even live in cold climate. I don't find it moisturizing at all. As a matter of fact, my skin gets itchy and red from using it. This cocoa stick clog the pores on my skin and cause skin bump. I tried to use it as a lip conditioner but it cause redness and irritation around my mouth. I don't know if this is simply my allergy toward this product or if anyone else share similar experience. I tried products that only contain partial cocoa butter mix with other moisturizing oills and ingredients but my skin simply does not agree with cocoa. I read that this cocoa is supposed to be good with scars and stretch marks because of the vitamins so I tried very hard to like this natural product. Unfortunately it failed me. The good thing is that it isn't that expensive so give it a try if you skin is less sensitive.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - DREAM ANGELS BLUSH
eatmyshort 4/19/2013 7:30:00 PM
Victoria generally come out with very beautiful perfume bottles. I tried it out today and it has an amazing opening. If you like floral scents, this might be a hit for you. It was described as a lush blend of juicy quince, white water lotus, and driftwood ( which basically mean a woody smell). If you like the original VS Angel perfume, this stuff smells almost exactly like it with the exception that it is less chemical than Angel. For those that enjoy a mix of chemical and bitterness dry down of Angel, you might appreciate this one. this fragrance is mostly floral. I don't detect any fruit.
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure
eatmyshort 3/31/2013 2:52:00 AM
Welcome to zit city! I use a few drops as a moisturizer because I read of its non pore clogging skin softening reviews all over the place. I was so happy the first few days. My skin was so dewey and moiste! Then the nightmare came. Zit city all over my face even on my eye balls !!!! you read it right ! in the corner of my eyes and it clogged my eye lash roots as well. I decided to stop to see if something else could be the culprit. My skin cleared ! I started using jojoba oil again, and I was welcome back to ZIT CITY again. I stopped using jojoba completely on my face. I only use the left over as a hand lotion. I find safflower oil works just as well to moisten my skin without clogging pores.
I love everything about turmeric except for the jaundice look and stain. If you can overlook those annoying features, turmeric is an amazing healing medicine. Personally, I cannot use this stuff topically because it stains so bad. I use it internally and it does the same thing. It clears my skin, makes my complexion brighter, detox my liver, get rid of head ache, fibromyalgia, fatigue, insomnia, auto immune problems,asthma, allergies. I discovered this herb by accident when I noticed that foods high in turmeric takes my asthma away. From there I've been using it for everything. It has been documented to be a powerful anti oxidant strong enough to even fight cancer. I remember when my sister was 3 years old, she fell off her bike and scraped her face on the cement. We thought she would be scared for life because it was serious scaring of her entire cheek. Some one told us to apply FRESH turmeric to her face every day and within a month, the entire palm sized disfiguring scar completely disappeared. Her skin is flawless now. I remember her looking yellow for an entire month. Fast forward to today, I take turmeric with unsweetened yogurt as a supplement. Pains, fatigue, asthma all went away. I get beautiful clear youthful skin . I bought the powder form from the spice store for only a dollar. It lasts me an entire month or more. I take two teaspoon a day. If the detox is too strong I reduce the amount or stop for a few days. Turmeric absorbs much better when eaten with fats or some type of oil. Of all the herbs I have used, this is probably my biggest life saver. My HG herb! the fresher the better. If you can find fresh turmeric root, go for that one. but watch out for teeth staining! I swallow mine down with a mixture of yogurt. I tried pill forms turmeric from spring fields and various other brands but they tend to upset my stomach and make me sick. The turmeric pills do nothing for me. I do not get the same result from the turmeric pills as I get from the natural turmeric used as a spice eaten with foods. The real whole form unprocessed unrefined non isolated (curcumin) turmeric absorb hundred of times better when eaten with foods in its natural form. Make sure you buy 100% pure turmetic without additives or artificial colors. I buy mine at any Asian/Indian grocery store.
Here is what I am looking for in a mineral cosmetics. 1. does not accentuate pores, fine lines, wrinkles 2. does not make me break out 3. does not change color 4. does not fade 5. does not slide off my face 6. contain only 4 basic inert ingredients such as mica, zinc, titanium, iron oxide that won't harbor mold, yeast , bacteria growth. No nuts like lauryl lysine that usually break me out. no bismuth, or chemically treated mica. Some MM companies would coat their mineral ingredients with waxes, silicones, or other harmful substances that would block my pores from breathing . That's how wrinkles start 7.hopefully waterproof, sun protection, 8. will not give my skin a dirty look 9. color stay true and come in shades light enough to match with my fair skin 10. natural looking 11. I do not have serious scars issues but my skin isn't perfectly smooth either. I don't care for much coverage but I do care for smoothness. 12. I am looking for something I can wear every day and people won't think I am working for a kabuki theater. IT has to be good for my skin. I find Joelle's Mineral to be one of the top 5 minerals I have tried. I rated very highly mostly because it makes my skin very smooth. Most of the other minerals tend to make my skin look dead and pasty. many times they even make pores and scars bigger! how dreadful. The coverage in my opinion is sheer. You can add more layers but it looks too stiff. If you don't have serious skin problems , this makeup can smooth out your pores and roughness like nothing else. I've used everdayminerals and I hated the bumpy texture and increase pore size. As far as Lauress goes, it is thicker than Joelle minerals. Lauress goes on more smoothly and they do have more colors for lighter skins. Lauress has lauryl lysine which is a coconut derivative and it made me itch and break out with cyst like crazy. I find Joelle cosmetics more friendly toward sensitive skin or skin prone to getting clogged. I like the smoothness of Joelle more. My skin is white like a ghost and Joelle makes it a bit more tan. I find Joelle cosmetic easier to apply white Lauress is creamier to apply. As far as everydayminerals, I cannot use any of their mineral foundations because I do not like their bumpy texture on my skin. EM doesn't have the coverage I need either. Now EM is adding coconut oil and other mysterious stuff into their foundation that make me break out, clog pores, and mess up my naturally healthy complexion. The drawback with Joelle minerals is that there isn't much coverage. Other than that I love everything about it. Their prices are amazingly low. you can order a 30 g jar for about $10. It is the smoothest foundation, very sheer, and natural looking. You won't look like you are wearing a pasty mask. For older people with dry skin, maybe the coconut oil and fillers maybe better for them. I give them a 5 star because they also have FREEE SHIPPING. They send me free samples too. Their makeup are so generous in portion that I often stock up more than I need. My skin is unbelievably smooth and natural looking with Joelle cosmetics. It makes a great day time summer cosmetics. I don't have any issue with it breaking apart on my face. It truly is amazing for the generous portion and low low price. If you visit their website on Ebay, you will see that they have 99.8% positive feed back with over 62,000 positive unsolicited reviews from actual buyers. That's a lot of happy customer. Those do not even include people who are happy but never give reviews. This company is an honest business that do not need to scam reviews.
This review is for Bragg's Organic apple cider vinegar. I thought I was the only one who got had by the reviews. This stuff dries out my hair and on top of that, it really stinks! It takes several washes to get the smell completely off. I used the Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar brand diluted like everyone mentioned. Horrible is you are getting ready for a special event/date/wedding/party. The smell and dryness ruin it for my special day. Be careful when use Bragg's apple cider Vinegar internally. It is very corrosive to the teeth enamel. It is also very painful on the stomach due to the excessive acid. I get better result simply using lemon or lime to alkaline by body. Lemon has no nasty odor. You can dilute demon and it gives gorgeous result on skin hair and not too harsh on the stomach lining. If you are looking to put friendly probiotic bacterias into your body, you can use kefir , yogurt, fermented veggies such as kimchi. They are tasty , help your immune system, clear your skin, put healthy bacterias back into your system without the harshness , stinky, bad taste of vinegar. Same health benefits, without all the side effects. In addition, fermented veggies also give you fiber and extra vitamins and minerals and they help you to shed off the fat. I don't think these businesses want people to know that. be ware. beware of those reviews that only has a few reviews, no other history of reviews, or most of the reviews are on the same date to make it look like it has a history. Keep in mind that real reviews tend to have both pros and cons. If all the reviews are ravings , it's probably a fake. businesses are now buying reviews on many websites on the internet that specializes in selling reviews. Go to Fiverr and see how many Joe Dick and Harry are posting ads to do reviews for $5. That's only one website. There are a bunch of websites that specialize in doing paid reviews. They also hire people to do youtube video reviews for them. When a product get too many reviews and you don't know a single person who uses it. It's probably paid reviews bought and paid for my the business. be ware!!! Businesses know that you can get money on a patent on a man made product like Bragg's Vinegar but you cannot patent naturally grown a lemon straight from the earth.
Toners -Thayers - Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel
eatmyshort 1/29/2013 2:38:00 AM
the idea sounds great. alcohol free . witch hazel, rose water, glycerin, etc. I use this as a facial freshener for my makeup and it breaks me out. it also made my skin look dull. It might work better for people with dryer skin that isn't sensitive. If your pores are prone to getting clogged , this may not be the best choice. Or it could be some stuff I am allergic to in the ingredients.
Lipstick -Victoria's Secret - Color Drama Lipstick
eatmyshort 1/25/2013 9:57:00 PM
I purchased this lipstick during the semi annual sale 75% off! what a deal. Originally $14. I wasn't expecting much because this was my first cosmetic purchase from VS. I was pleasantly surprised. IT's smooth, lasting, soft, light, moisturizing, doesn't hurt my lips, and the color is vibrant even after I was done eating. This has never happen with any long wearing lipsticks before. I gave up wearing long wearing lipsticks years ago because they were just hideously dry, crackling, sticky, gooey, feel heavy, and accentuating dry crusty lips. Lipsticks just do not last on me even even when I use a lip liner. I agree with the first reviewer that this long wearing lipstick is HG material. I would repurchase for the full price next time. Lipstick is quite elegant looking. the cap isn't easy to open as the old lip stick caps made in the past. The color I purchased was "irresistible".
This scent is yummy sweet like pink sugar without the burned smell. I really like it initially but it's not something I can endure wearing every day. The cheapness starts creeping in when it dries down to a strong synthetic room deodorizer. Smells great from the bottle though
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Secret Wonderland
eatmyshort 1/14/2013 9:59:00 PM
smells really warm, cozy, sweet. It's quite unique from all the floral fruity smells . not too strong. No head ache. I would buy it again. It makes a comforting winter scent when the weather is so cold outside.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Twisted Peppermint Body Splash
eatmyshort 1/14/2013 9:56:00 PM
woohoo! it's being discontinued. smells just like I am wearing toothpaste!
very strong potent stuff. Like many people said, this is not the fluffy soft vanilla. If you love stuff that spreads 6 feet far and wide, you just hit the jack pot. Strong enough for odor cover up on days when your personal hygiene hasn't been kept up. A geriatric woman I cared for used this scent to counter act adult diaper smell and it works wonder!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Play All Day Body Mist
eatmyshort 11/25/2012 4:59:00 PM
8.4 oz for only $15 what a deal! This body spray is part of the VS Pink perfume line. I am usually not a strong Pink perfume line but this one is so hypnotic. Most of the VS Pink line tend to turn sour or rancid on my skin which end up making me smell like a rotten fruit stand but not this one. Just as sweet youthful flirty as all the other Pink perfumes but it doesn't turn rancid. Unfortunately they do not carry perfume in this particular fragrant. They have the body lotion to help keep the body spray stay on longer. It consists of basic California Poppy and sunny musk. I didn't smell any musk, though. Maybe they only add a very small amount of musk. I usually get headache from musk but I didn't get a headache at all. Truly fun , sweet, flirty, youthful, and smells amazing. Don't expect this fragrant to last because after all it's just a body spray. I hope they come out with the perfume. This is one of VS fragrant I am willing to pay full price for. This is a limited edition so Iam grabbing a bunch. They are currently having a sell at 3 for $30 . I hope it will still be around for the semi annual sell 75% off
