This is my first eye cream ever! I was noticing the skin around my eyes being a little dry, and Origins moisturizers are my favorite so I decided to try this one. Since it is specifically formulated to help with moisture instead of wrinkles, I chose this and it has been wonderful. I have noticed that it burns a little if it gets in your eyes, like if you rub them while the moisturizer is around them... so that's not great. No eye product should burn your eyes, right? Other than that it is great! Very moisturizing and you only have to use a tee-tiny bit.
Moisturizers -Origins - Starting Over (with Mimosa)

Origins moisturizers are the best! I love this one and the nightamins one. This is very moisturizing, perfect for my dry skin. I am 22, so I can't discuss the effects on aging that it has, but it's a great moisturizer and a little goes a long way so it's economical!
Eye Makeup Remover -TheBalm - Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup
trishz 11/26/2012 9:11:00 PM
Booooo. Compared to Clinique's Take Off The Day Balm this just doesn't cut it. I loved Clinique's and heard good things about this so I bought this too. It doesn't take off eye makeup as well, and it's almost like you need makeup remover to take off this makeup remover. I was excited about the extra nutrients that it advertises. I hate to give bad reviews, but I do want to say that Cliniques Take Off the Day BALM is so perfect. It's moisturizing, does the job, and a jar lasts over a year even if you use it twice a day. The packaging of the Clinique product is also better. The Clinique balm is a little big more expensive but I think you get a lot more product and the top stays on! Sorry TheBalm!
I really love this product. The bronze color is beautiful and has a pretty sheen to it that doesn't make you look oily. It makes my tinted moisturizer stay all day and I can definitely tell a difference when I use this compared to when I just use tinted moisturizer. Doesn't break me out either, yay!
Highlighters -Becca - Gypsy Pressed Shimmer Powder
trishz 11/25/2012 7:46:00 PM
This blush is beautiful! I have light tan skin and its perfect! It was actually my first becca product, so my love with this line has just began. The color, texture and saying power of this blush is divine. I want every shade! Ps. I have dry skin so usually I like stains and cream blushes but this sinks into the skin so wonderfully!
I love this cleanser! I am allergic to sulfates and have dry skin that will break out every couple months or so, and this facewash is wonderful! It isn't drying, gets your skin really clean and doesn't leave a residue.
Love this stuff! Origins moisturizers are my fav, because they are super affordable, smell good, thick, and just all around wonderful! This mask compares to the Amore pacific Vitalizing Masque, which I also looooove, but Drink Up is a third of the price (really!)! I use this after I do a peel, and I sleep in it.. I don't just wash it off in 10 minutes. It makes my skin moisturized and super soft. I highly recommend all of the origins 10 minute masks and this one is no different!
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact (All colors)
trishz 11/9/2012 5:04:00 PM
I have this one in the 2012 24 karat shade so my review will be on that. I have a lot of Bobbi Brown products and love them all. But I never bought a shimmer brick until yesterday despite their popularity and appeal. I love my makeup to look dewy, glowing and natural .. And sometimes I'm afraid of shimmer thinking it translates to glitter. So I bought this and I LOVE it! It's so beautiful when used in small amounts which also means it will last forever. This color is particularly great for my light skin tone, I turn golden tan easily but avoid the sun. It's a beautiful rose gold color that would compliment anyone!
Shave Products -eos - Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss
trishz 11/6/2012 12:19:00 AM
This stuff is a must have for me. I am allergic to sulfates and just found out there are hidden sulfates in the little moisture strips on most all razor blades. So I had to start buying the super super cheap razors and they have been so rough on my skin, causing nicks and redness and razor burn. Then I found this stuff. It's so awesome! It smells good and I don't really have to use lotion anymore because its so moisturizing, even though I have horribly dry skin! I do think that the way to use this is for dry shaving, which I've never done before buying this. It's seriously wonderful and I 100% recommend it!
Treatments -Carol's Daughter - Monoi repairing hair mask
trishz 9/11/2012 11:01:00 PM
OMMMGGGGG best conditioner ever. I use the clarifying shampoo and then use this as more of a daily conditioner. Sometimes I use it as a deep conditioner but really it's not that deep. It's still a WONDERFUL conditioner. When I use this humidity does not affect my hair at all, AT ALL. And I live in Alabama! So you must buy this to at least try this! I hope it works as well with your hair as it does mine :)
Shampoo -Carol's Daughter - Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss
trishz 9/11/2012 10:59:00 PM
I love this! I'm a 22 year old white girl with lots of baby fine blonde hair and this shampoo gets all the build up out. I wash my hair with shampoo a couple times a week and I use this with the Monoi MASK. Love it!
I have the moisturizer in the new packaging and I love it soooo much! It's so moisturizing, smells good, and will last forever because I use such a small amount each time. Doesn't break me out either!!
Tinted Moisturizer -Clinique - Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF15
trishz 9/11/2012 10:56:00 PM
I had a big sample of this that I used for about two weeks and then I purchased it. I actually preferred the bottle of the sample to the full sized bottle. I do love this tinted moisturizer though. It doesn't break me out, provides coverage and is pretty cheap!
Treatments -Origins - Dr Weil Plantidote Mega Mushroom Face Serum
trishz 9/11/2012 10:54:00 PM
I love this serum. I had a deluxe sample that I used for a few weeks and went out and bought this in the full size version. I have dry skin and this can still substitute for a moisturizer. I put it on at night and wake up with skin that isn't red! Hallelujah
Masks -Juice Beauty - Green Apple Peel- Sensitive Skin
trishz 9/11/2012 10:51:00 PM
I love this peel. I have sensitive skin and have had no adverse effects with this. I had little bumps under my skin around my cheekbones and because of this peel they are all gone! It really helped the texture of my skin. I actually really like the smell too, it smells like green apples in a good way. I'm going to re-buy this over and over.
