Creates very natural looking and soft lashes. Thickens a bit and holds the curl very well but doesn't lengthen. Stays on all day without smudging.
Creates very natural looking and soft lashes. Thickens a bit and holds the curl very well but doesn't lengthen. Smudges easily so I'd recommend the waterproof formula.
This mascara creates very dramatic effect. It really thickens and separates your lashes. The brush is a bit too big for my taste and I always end up with clumps and smudges when applying it. It's very waterproof indeed and very hard to remove even with eye-makeup remover for waterproof mascaras.

I like this mascara very much. It lenghtens and thickens my lashes, holds the curl and creates beautiful -looking lashes. I love the fact that the brush isn't too big. It's also easy to apply and doesn't clump. But despite being waterproof it smudges a bit under my eyes after several hours. And I usually put on only one coat of mascara.
Mascara -Kanebo - Kanebo Mascara 38*C Silk Performance

Yes, it stays on all day without smudging or flaking and comes off only with warm water. BUT: My lashes are naturally dead straight and I ALWAYS curl them before applying my mascara. This mascara completely straightens my lashes and doesn't hold the curl! It only gives a bit of colour, but doesn't thicken or lengthen.
I bought this product in hope of getting managable hair that's protected from heat. How wrong was I! First of all, it made my hair really sticky and dry and it was hard to get a comb through it. I think that heat made it even worse. It didn't give my hair any shine, which it promises to do. I threw it straight to garbage can after using it a few weeks. Not recommended!
Toners -Biotherm - Biosensitive Calming Thermal Spring Spray

I've used this toner for ages, ever since it came to market here in Finland. Although I now use Clinique's Clarifying lotion daily I always keep a bootle of this Biotherm product just in case my skin gets sensitizes. It really calms my skin and beacause it's alcohol-free, it doesn't dry it out. It's also great after sunburns. Just spray it all over your face and your skin feels very fresh and calm.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Self-tanning Milk for Face and Body
mapn 3/20/2003 3:13:00 AM
This is the second self tanner I've tried so I don't have a lot of comparisons. My complexion is very fair and I have red hair so I don't tan easily. This product provides quite unnatural finish, a bit orange. It doesn't last long so you have to apply it every day. The fragrance is very strong and unpleasant. The pump dispenser is very handy and you always get the right amount from it.
The colour is great but it only stays on a few hours and then fades out. It's also quite sticky. I love the smell so much I could eat the whole tube. And my boyfriend can't stop sniffing my lips!
This is a wonderful eyecolor! I've tried a few creamy ones before, but they have all been really greasy and always faded out after a couple of hours. But not this one! It stays on beautifully but not as long as I'd like. I use my index finger when applying it and it glides on very easily. The result is smooth and even. It also has a little bit of shine but not too much. I don't notice the cooling effect, but I don't mind. I have it in lanvender which accentuates my green eyes.
Cleansers -Biotherm - BIOSENSITIVE High Tolerance Fluid Cleansing Milk
mapn 3/20/2003 2:43:00 AM
I have very sensitive combianation skin. I've used Clinique's facial soap now for a few months but whenever my skin feels dry or sensitized I go back to my Biosensitive Cleansing Milk. It calms my skin and takes away all my makeup (not eye makeup) and leaves my skin soft and smooth. Not recommended for those with oily skin.
Cleansers -Biotherm - Biosensitive Self-Foaming Cleanser

I don't think that this product cleanses my skin very well. I have to use it two times before I feel that my face is clean. It's good for my sensitive skin though, and doesn't irritate or dry out it at all. Doesn't take eye makeup off.
I've used this foundation during the wintertime when my skin is very dry. It's very comforting but it doesn't last as long as I'd like. My skin starts to shine after a couple of hours. I don't like to use powder at all so I want my foundation to do everything. My skin is uneven and this product evens out my skin tone.

It promises to last all day, which I don't think it does. What's good about this product is that it's oil-free and contains SPF 15. I've noticed that this foundation sticks to dry patches, so it's not recommended for people with extremely dry skin.

I've suffered from dark circles all my life. People always tell me I should get more sleep. Well I do get enough sleep! My problem is heritable. This product doesn't reduce my dark circles at all but this gel-creme feels wonderful in the morning. And it also reduces puffiness.
