Cleansers -Exuviance - Moisturizing Anti-bacterial Facial Cleanser 4% PHA
emmgill 5/10/2011 3:52:00 AM
This is pretty good as far as a cleanser goes to target blemishes. I only use this when I'm breaking out. I did find that my blemishes cleared quicker when I used this. But it dries my skin out so bad, so I can only use it twice maybe 3 times in a row. This foams up nice, but doesn't leave my skin with the beautiful soft feeling I get from my Paula's Choice Skin Recovery cleanser. Won't be buying again.
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Lemon Sage Thickening Conditioner

I really do love this conditioner. It's a lightweight conditioner. The smell of this is AMAZING. So fresh and clean. This does an amazing job when I only want a little moisture in my hair, so I tend to use this only in summer (If I want more moisture in winter I like the Redken Smooth Down conditioner) This is perfect for my hair with the Paul Mitchell;- Lavender and Mint Shampoo. I love love this conditioner! i tried the Lavender and Mint conditioner but i didn't like it as much as this. This is perfect, I use this along with the L'Oreal absolut repair conditioner in summer.
This shampoo is great as a clarifying weekly shampoo. I would never use this as an every day shampoo but it's nice to use every week to just start the week feeling fresh and new. I do really hate the smell. It smells like lollies, really sweet smelling (But I suffer from an illness and I get nauseus alot and this smell doesn't help) others might love the smell :) But I I like what it does for my hair, so definitely a keeper for now.........I do want to try the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree special shampoo as a clarifying shampoo.
I really love this conditioner! it makes my hair feel nice and hydrated. This is a much better hydrating conditioner than the ALL Soft. The All soft made my hair so fluffy. This makes my hair feel soft and smooth without feeling greasy and weighed down. Perfect for a good moisture rich conditioner. I like to change around the hair products I use. Probably because my hair changes so much in winter vs summer. I use this along with the all soft shampoo in winter when my hair gets drier.

I really really like this lotion!!! My favourite is The Body Shop White Musk. But this leaves the same feel to it and cheaper!!! I have been looking for a cheaper lotion that mimicks the same feel as the Body Shop lotion for AGES! I finally have found it. I have really sensitive skin and my skin is fine with this! I have it in the honey
OMG Love love love! This is an amazing moisturizer. I have very sensitive skin and am so surprised this has not made me breakout it's quite thick, This leaves me skin feeling so so so smooth and plump!! So plump its amazing! (I can't use this alot because of the fragrance it gives me blackheads after awhile, but I change my skincare routine every day/night, because my skin gets used to products so I switch around all the time). I had to take off a star because of the fragrance. My skin doesn't like fragrance so I have to use this minimally. I was so upset I discovered this after its been discontinued! http://www.beautyproductscompared.com/eterna-27-review
I really really love this mascara. I wear this during the day. It's not a thick WOW night time mascara. This opens up my eyes so much and looks very 'baby doll' big eyed look. I really really love this mascara during the day! My favorite day mascara.

This is the ONLY hairspray that I have ever finished using! I used it years and years ago and then couldn't find it ANYWHERE and then moved onto other brands. Buyt I never found a hairspray I liked. All of them made my hair feel crunchy, stiff and made my curls from bombshell bouncy to sleek, flat curls. This is so so nice. I spray it onto my hair and it holds my curls without weighing them down makes them feel so so good. BEST EVER!

This is an ok conditioner. It's not as thick and creamy as other conditioners. but once I put it in my hair it makes it feel nice in the shower. but My hair feels slightly weighed down from this. After one day my hair feels so weighed down with left over product. I just don't like this. Sticking with Redken All Soft for now.

This shampoo lathers really nicely ( i tried this with the conditioner). But I don't feel like it cleans my hair really well at the roots. It also makes the end of my hair feel really rough and leaves my hair literally 'squeaky' clean. I just don't like this shampoo. It's advertised as a daily shampoo which it has to be because my hair was so weighed down and greasy feeling at the roots and I just don't have time to clean my hair everyday. So I don't like this at all! Used it twice up for SWAP :) (also conditioner) This seems to be a favorite with so many.
Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo
emmgill 3/30/2011 4:35:00 AM
Love Love Love!! This is a great shampoo and I have been looking for awhile. This cleans my hair so well without making it dry and it leaves no residue. Also doesn't make my hair 'squeaky' clean either which is something I dislike (I do get this feeling for the PM- Shampoo Three, but I use it for a VERY clarifying wash, so I don't mind). This is perfect! Leaves my hair feeling shiny, clean and nourished. So good, just bought my 1L bottle. Update: This shampoo is good, but I think this is making my hair oilier. So I think it dries out my scalp and it is producing more oil. So I'm on the look again for the perfect shampoo for me.
This is an ok toner. I didn't feel any stinging as other people have experienced. This went well for a couple of days, but my skin is so sensitive I didn't like that this contained fragrance and dyes. So i stopped using this because my PCA Smoothing Toner came in the mail. I LOVE it, it only have a few ingredients and is an AHA toner. I just wanted a simple AHA toner, but this has so many additives and Witch Hazel which I HATE. So I only used this for a couple of days and decided to stop because I have NEVER been able to use fragrance on my skin and didn't want to risk it.

This is a really really nice toner. The pumpkin smell is interesting. I don't hate it, don't love but you get used to it. This is fragrance free (as in no added fragrance). This makes my skin look so glowy. This makes my skin look really nice. I went from HATING toners because most broke me out to now loving toners and finding so many that work for me.

Toners -Physician's Choice - PCA skin phaze2 smoothing toner

This is a really simple ,basic AHA toner. The ingredient list is very small so it's great for people with sensitive skin like mine. I don't really like to use this all over my face. If I use it, it tends to make my skin produce more oil. It's too harsh for my skin. So I use this as a spot treatment on any pimples I have. I probably won't repurchase after this. Love my pther PCA products, this one just isn't 'essential' for me.
