Finally! Something that does not crease on my super oily lids! I am just in love with the MAC paints. I use this one as a base for my eyeshadows. After my MAC makeover it stayed put for 8 hours, I had to remove it to go to bed but it is still looked fresh at that point. I am just in awe! I will repurchase again, no doubts about it.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - MagnaScopic Maximum Volume Mascara
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:49:00 AM
I am a little undecided on this product. I apply it very carefully and I do not usually get any clumps. But reading all the other reviews I can see how frustrating it can be to get 3 huge eyelashes! Perhaps it is the technique, or my patience with this very expensive product. Luckily I paid 50% less for this mascara on ebay. I would suggest going to Estee Lauder to get a GWP before splurging as it takes a little getting used to. I will keep using it but will probably not repurchase due to the cost.
Cleansers -Garnier - Clean & Fresh Refreshing Gel Wash

This was too gentle for me and it did not do a very good job of cleansing my skin. I prefer the Garnier Pure range for its power cleansing properties.
Toners -Garnier - Synergie Pure Pore Purifying Astringent
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:44:00 AM
Yes this product is very harsh! Do not use it if you have dry skin as it will burn and dry it out even more. I have normal skin and it works really well for me. I use it with the Pure face wash. I moisturise straight away after I use it as it does dry out my skin a little. I haven't had any spots since I started using this product 3 weeks ago and I recommend it if you can put up with the strenght and the alcohol content. I'll definetly repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Garnier - Skin Naturals Cocoon Mains (Hand Cocoon)
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:40:00 AM
I'm not really impressed with the tiny packaging of this product however the cream itself was ok. I don't really have dry skin on my hands but it felt really nice after I applied this during the day. It smells so good, and refreshes my skin. I would only recommend it to people who do not have super dry skin.
Lotions/ Creams -Garnier - Body Cocoon Express Moisture Spray
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:38:00 AM
This is a nice product which I keep at work because the air conditioning really dries my skin out. The packaging is great an it smells lovely. It is quite moisturising but not something I would use as my main moisturiser. Overall a very good product for people on the go.
Styling Products -The Body Shop - Coconut Oil Hair Shine
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:36:00 AM
What is this for? I am not sure! I tried it on long hair, short hair, medium hair and it just doesn't do anything but make my hair greasy. I would not recommend this product.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Olive Dry Oil Mist
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:35:00 AM
I really like this product. It is not a must have, so I will not repurchase but I mix it with my olive Body Shop body butter and it is just divine. Alone, it does not do much for me.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Hemp lip conditioner (stick)
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:32:00 AM
Althought I gave this a bad rating last time I have decided to try it again and it works on my flaky lips really well. The smell is still a bit funny but tolerable. I find that it is quite greasy which I love, apparently hemp has a lot of fatty oils in it which is good.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:31:00 AM
I have bought this product over and over and over again. It smells awesome, it is so moisturising and is great for the summer months. My skin just loves it :) I will keep repurchasing, its a must have!
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Butter in Chocolate Orange
Sanida 1/23/2005 12:29:00 AM
This stuff smells so delicious! It is not as moisturising as I had hoped for but I do like the thick texture of it. I prefer other lip treatments in the long term.
I hate this product. For starters, it was impossible to apply due to the applicator. It would spread unevenly and dry in patches. It dried my lips so much, regardless of how much I applied the moisturiser. Don't buy this product its a total dud. I'm hoping Covergirl will exchange it with something else.
I think this is a lovely product. It is waterbased, so it feels very gentle on the eyes. I put a little on my cheeks for when I'm going out, and also put it over my nude eyeshadows. It doesn't crease or smudge all day. I love it and I will definetly repurchase!
Ugh this stuff is so hard to blend! I love the colour though and I love that it doesn't crease (that is if you use it with paints). However I will not repurchase simply because I don't think I will go through the whole jar in my lifetime! I suggest perhaps to get a sample of this pigment before you invest in a whole jar :)
These paints are amazing! This is the first shade I ever purchased and it is so versatile. I also got a sample of Still life and the two complement each other beautifully. It is great to use as a base because it doesn't crease and I also mix it with pigments. Oh it is just so lovely, and last for ages and ages! I also agree that the packaging could be a little better. Overall, a fantastic product and will definetly repurchase!
