i like using this on my nose when i see pimples forming. it shrinks them within a day or two. i just dont like how runny it is....
i have been using this for a long time now. i love using this when my pimples leave dark spots. maybe with everyday use.. they fade within a month. i also use them on cystic acne.. and then put a mask on top. it really shrinks those suckers. good stuff!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser
karamelsutra 4/9/2010 8:11:00 AM
i bought this yesterday from big lots for $3. i used it at the end of the end when my skin is at it's oiliest. after 3 hours, i checked to see if the area between my eyebrows and cheeks were oily.. and they weren't! i have tried lush cleansers, clinque, and other store brand cleansers and my skin is usually oily hours after cleansing. it does contain salicylic acid. i would recommend this cleanser for really oily skin types.
i have been using this cleanser for two weeks now and i love it. but i should say that it can be drying. and i have oily skin. i didnt use this cleanser for ONE day and my skin was OILY! not cool. maybe i should also mention that this is my first time using LUSH so i cant really compare it to anything else in their store. but compared to clean and clear, id choose Herbalism any day. i dont know how some people found this exfoliating because i didnt. i have to use a separate cleanser for exfoliating for that and this is NOT meant to take off makeup. **update. i am not going to change my ratings. because it is a good cleanser for oily skin types. but i will take back the fact i would choose this over clean and clear. i found my new HG cleanser, deep clean refreshing gel cleanser by clean and clear. it controls the oiliness better.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner

**UPDATE: ok.. i gave this another try and i dont like it. compared to kat von d's liner... it is crap. it is flaky and at times irritated my eyes. maybe the one i used was faulty? idk, but i wont buy this again. i'd rather spend 20 bucks on kat's eye liner.
HG! next to wet and wilds mega eyeliner! i love it! and would buy again!
Brows -Make Up For Ever - Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector

I just started using this product.. and its pretty hard to use. haha. i did find that it was drying faster than i thought it would.. in result.. my brush did not apply well. it could be, i just need more practice. i am not too sure if i would buy this again, even though i said i would. $19 for a small bottle? idk. i guess with time, i might change my mind. BUT! i do love how this makes my brows look! i will still use my maybelline eyebrow pencil though.. not my HG, but close enough! **UPDATE: i finally got the hang of applying this and i love it. it really does look natural. AND a little does go a long way!
at first i was skeptical because after two weeks i didnt see any results. but i kept applying every night and now...., my brows started to grow some hairs! spots that were sparse, are now full :)

i love this shampoo! not only is it cheap, it moisturizes my hair without weighing it down. the shine is a great bonus also.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleanser
karamelsutra 8/30/2008 9:15:00 PM
i love this stuff. it makes exfoliating easy. i use this daily and my skin stays smooth and soft. i believe it is okay to use daily because it did not dry out my skin *heart this stuff :)
i bought this yesterday and used to it today when i left to go shopping with my mom. i loved it as soon as i started applying i even was complimented on how nice my eyebrows looked! lol! i dont like the price.. maybe because its quite small, but overall a great product. im actually going to buy a few more since soft black is hard to find around here. oh and the soft black matched well with my black hair and brows. possibly my HQ product, along with wonderbrow wax!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Makeup
karamelsutra 5/10/2008 10:27:00 PM
i like this foundation. i dont use it often though. but when i do, like if i get a pimple, it works well. nice coverage and a little goes a long way.
I bought this because of the good reviews on here. also because i have benefits brow product also and i wanted something to fall back on in case i ran out. i didnt like this at all. the wax wasnt as 'stiff' as id like it to be. and combining the powder and wax did nothing as well. i probably just used too much or something or didnt get the hang of it. but i wouldnt reccommend this. if you want something like this and dont mind spending a little more, id stick with benefit.
ooo! my HG cleanser! i love this stuff. it makes my face feel soft and clean. <33 its also helping with a horrible breakout i had.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

i didnt like this. i was really disappointed esp. after reading the good reviews here. this tuff made me break out like crazy. i still have the scars to prove it. im in the process of healing. *sigh* anyways.. it was like $5 and people here said, it was 2? not a good product. i guess ill use it on cuts and wounds, but not my face..
