This isn't so bad, but it isn't amazing either. I'm stuck with it for now as a base mascara, which for me works well enough. It doesn't do much for curl or length, but it gives me a decent amount of volume and a very natural look, which is a must for me. I layer it underneath Cover Girl's eye brightening mascara, and the result is something I can absolutely live with. But I must admit I have a feeling something better must be out there... And the search continues.
I can't believe I never thought of using sugar for cosmetics before I read the reviews here. I use a sprinkle in my face wash once a week for mild exfoliation, which I recommend if you have sensitive and/or acne prone skin, like me. Otherwise you could test out whatever number works for you. You can also wet your finger with vaseline or maybe bio-oil, then dip it into sugar and rub on your lips for some tasty buffing action. Just make sure you have a small container to store some in, otherwise you risk making a complete mess with that floppy paper bag. Honestly, try it out. Sh*t's amazing.
My hair is naturally quite dark, but in the past decade or so I had failed to care properly for it, so it turned a very boring and dare I say ugly color of light brown. I swooped this up at CVS because it was four dollars, and I figured f*ck it. SO GLAD. Very little damage from it as far as I can see, my hair is a glossy, dark chocolate color just like when I was young, and the color stays for a long time. I haven't tried many other box dyes but I don't need to now! This was all months back and I have used this again twice, but I found I need at least two boxes (my hair is thick and long, well past the shoulder blades). If you have long hair go ahead and grab two, they're cheap as hell! A tip is to leave the included conditioner on your hair for a while, and you could dare to add some of your own, if it's color safe. Good luck and happy coloring.
This stuff is pretty good. I get it in the natural something scent, and since I don't sweat much, a few swipes are sufficient for me. It does help mask stubble a bit, which is very nice, but it doesn't literally stop the hair from growing. At least, not for me. Still, this is my only deoderant. I just wish that my local CVS sold the clinical strength for when I DO sweat, like after dance practice, which takes up a great part of my life.

Holy sh*t I love this stuff. There isn't one thing I don't love about it, except maybe that my pets hate when I put it on because of the smell. Sucks to be them because I use this as often as possible, at night before bed. I just have to wait for the rare occasion I don't have nail polish on. All of my nails already look softer, and much healthier. Must-have!

This sh*t is so bad. Maybe I got a defective bottle but the consistency was worse than glue on my face. I noticed very little improvement on redness, to make matters worse. (One lipstick for effort, Eucerin.) I would never touch this stuff again. Not even for money.

My sister stole my eyelash comb once. I kicked her in the face. Just kidding. HG of everything there ever was in regards to beauty tools. Can't live without it. I honestly am dependant on this thing it's quite depressing

Coming from someone who can't leave the house without curled eyelashes, this is my go-to curler. When I first got it I'll admit that I wasn't immediately sold, but after I got the hang of using it (medium pressure, getting just the right angle, etc.), I can't live without it. It comes with THREE(!) refil pads, and I've had it a while now, never needing any of them. Worth every penny.
This primer does wonders for skin that isn't exactly perfect...It smooths out the texture and appearance of my skin, and does an amazing job at creating a more stable base for the Bare Escentuals mineral foundation. Also, unless I'm completely imagining things, I think it helps it keep on my skin for longer. A primer that does its job damn well? Yes please. HG!, along with the mineral foundation. Skin has never looked better in my life.

Anyone else have it come out orangey? Or just me... I love the color but to get a nice, lush red I have to over apply...Not sexy. Also, it doesn't stay on that well. It worked like a lipstick the way it rubbed off my lips close to my teeth. Overall, I'd say don't waste the time. But hey, some people seemed to have luck with it. My lips are pretty red anyway maybe I f*cked with the balance.

I'm afraid to say this and jinx it, but this moisturizer hasnt given me any ridiculous problems like irritation or breakouts. In fact, it seems to help with redness and even pimples. I put it on before bed because it smells like sh*t but when I wake up my skin is smoother and closer to being nice. A little goes a long way - but it's so expensive that I have to only use it every other day, which may be why I haven't run into any problems.

Been using this for a little over a year now, and with time and constant application, my skin has greatly improved even without the makeup. Don't know what I'd do without it! To be fair, to get the cleanest and most natural look, you need to buy the primer as well, and let it set before applying. But it's worth it! Even my ruddy, pimply skin is no match for this stuff. Of course, it doesn't coer 100%, but nobody in their right mind can blame a makeup for not being photoshop. Just be sure to not over-apply, or risk looking like a cakeface.

Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

I like this cleanser a lot, it's fuss-free and gets te job done for me. Leaves my skin clean and without dry patches. I don't have a problem with residue because I'm forced to use, at most, a dime-sized amount to save money on this sh*t. Really. Ten dollars for three ounces? This better be worth it in the long run. At least using a small amount still works up a nice milky lather. Anyway, after about two months of use my breakouts are few and far between, and I'd dare say it calms redness and swelling. Added bonus for a non-acne cleanser. :)
Great moisturizer. Nice application, lightweight, but still does the trick if your skin isn't too dry. Can be used year round, for me at least. My only complaint is that on hot, hot days, I sometimes feel like it gets sticky or begins to melt if I apply to close to going outside.
I got this for Christmas, along with its special primer. I recently made a purchase online at Sephora and got it as a sample, I believe, because I experience very little clumping or flaking with this mascara. However, it needs the primer if you're looking for a more intense look. Perfect for me, I love the more natural yet noticable looking volume. Not much on length I must admit, and doesn't hold a curl as well as it claims to. Absolutely not worth twenty dollars, no mascara is. I'm having fun with this sh*t and won't be able to actually purchase it again. Woe.
