this honestly saved my skin ... I use this on my FACE! I was hesitant to put such a thick cream on my face, but I just tried it anyways and it's amazing. seriously. first of all, doesnt feel as heavy as you expect because it's water resistant - so as you sweat during the day it doesn't start to feel heavy or gross or anything ... I forget it's on. I think it helps my makeup stay in place too honestly. and this just completely saved my dry skin. I don't have abnormally dry skin, it's just kind of normal to dry, but I have been using this product for months now and I refuse to stop - I neverrrrr do that! but I feel like this has improved the texture, discoloration, and overall clarity of my skin! Highly recommend this - besides, if you don't like it for your face it's just as good for the body :)
eugh ANNOYED!! I loved this, lovelovelove, I have long lashes, so I always go for volume - and this gave it to me! loved the effect it has, it is a dryer formula, so better for volume, and so at first I was like wow, this mascara rules! but there is one maaaajor downside - flaking. I've never experienced a mascara that flakes so much!! by like.. mid day (not even) there would be black flakes all over my cheeks making my makeup look dingy, and flakes in my eyes constantly annoying me. plus I have the WATERPROOF version! I can't even tell if this withstands water because it just comes off all day anyways :/ so love the effect of this mascara but I just can't deal with so much flaking its insane, would not repurchase nor recommend
I actually really like this mascara. It makes my lashes super volumized, and if I WANT I can make them super spider-lash-y. but just day to day it's really good for volume and a dramatic false-eyelash look. the ONLY thing I don't like about this mascara is that it flakes! I have the waterproof one too, so maybe the regular is better? but yeah I still love this mascara :)
ah I'm so annoyeddddd!!!! okay this smells so good and I was so excited to have it because it's a really easy scent to wear because you know, it;s deliscious, but food-ish? so it's non offensive, and not too strong, BUT HERE'S THE THING it doesn't last at alllllll, like honestly within an hour you'll forget you put it on. I have the roller ball, and usually I prefer a spray so I can spray it on my clothes (because I think it's stays better) - so maybe that's the problem? eugh just annoying, I wanted to lovelovelovee this! not cheap either, roller ball of it was like 20-25 $ ? (with tax)
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Vanilla Birthday Cake 3-in-1
7954 3/28/2011 3:56:00 PM
I got this as a free gift for my bdayyyy (yay!) I'd never tried anything from philosophy, but I always hear people raving about it so I was excited. It was a really good size, but to be honest this would never convince me to try anything from philosophy. what little scent it has is anything but vanilla cake.. smells like plastic dolls. I really hope the other philosophy products are better than this, or else everyone hyping this brand is wasting a lotttt of moneyyyy
I like thia mascara, it made my lashes really nice and full and voluminous! has a big brush like the bad gal lash, cute packaging, doesn't flake at all. the only thing is this mascara dried out soooo fast, like I was kind of shocked at how quickly it became useless (lol.) A lot of times mascaras will get even better when they dry out a little, but with the big brush and everything this one just becomes really difficult to work with. I wouldn't buy it again - not at that price! - even though it is quite nice, it's just such a waste
ah I really wish this could be my cleanser! :( it's really nice, it makes your skin feel clean and balanced - not dry or oily. it smells nice (like tea tree), and isn't even expensive, especially for the amount you get! I was in love with this when I started using it, but had to stop because it gave me like.. little bumps on the skin yknow. so sometimes I'll use this cleanser when my skin is feeling really dry, but otherwise I just use my clinique. I would still recommend people to try this, because if it doesn't break you out it'd be a fantassstic cleanser!!
love this eyelinerrrrr, it's the only thing I don't have to wear primer under... usually I put primer on under anything on my eyes, but this is the one product where if I'm just running out the door I know it'll be fine without primer. I have it in black and in navy - love both :) they aren't super creamy, and the colours are pretty much just matte, BUT they have amazing staying power; even on the waterline. and if I want the colour to be a little more interesting I just put a bit of eyeshadow over it. but yeah I'd recommend these 100%
I have this in 'pure radiance'. This is my faaaaaavorite blush I've ever tried. Lasts sooo well, just makes me look healthy, have a nice sheen/glow to it. the colour is like peachy pink. loooove this blush, I was looking at the rest of these in sephora the other day and I want so many :p I find loose powders a bit of a pain, but I;ve fallen in love with the quality of this too much to care - definitely try these!
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Intensive Care Dry Skin Lotion

okay the one i have is 'intensive care' water resistant, and it is increeeedible. This honestly changed my skin - I have really dry skin. I use this on my face and my body every night. I've also mixed it with foundation during the day as like - a tinted moisturizer. And it goes above and beyonnnnnd every way I use it! My skin is never flakey anymore (even all **CANADIAN** winter!) and when I mix it with my foundation it lasts amazingly, I was super surprised :/ I think it's because it's water resistant. eugh so amazing though. I was a little hesitant to put such a thick moisturizer on my face, but it's done nothing but amazing things for my face. Once this runs out I won't even consider another moisturizer to replace it! try thisssss
I really don't understand the hype of this foundation.. it's average at best. the coverage seems to be the biggest thing - I find it neither cakey nor amazing coverage as everyone seems to say.. it was average, but doesn't even really cover redness? and then the finish is really.. cheap looking? like it's obvious you are wearing makeup. why does everyone love this foundation! the bottle doesn't matter because it is the most liquidy/runny foundation I've ever used. and the price is expensive for a drugstore foundation.. I HIGHLY recommend almay foundations - they have a beautiful finish, better coverage and are all in all MILESSSS better than this overhyped revlon foundation.
Lotions/ Creams -Yes To Carrots - Body Moisturizing Lotion

I've heard amazing things about this brand, but I'm sorry - I've been using this product for several months now and it does absolutely nothing. No immediate results, no lasting results, no overtime results. I'm still left with dry skin (I only use it on my body). doesn't even smell nice.. smells like plastic. I wouldn't repurchase, because it doesn't DO anything :OVERHYPED
I love this foundation!! As everyone has said the bottle is annoying, but I've found if you store it lying down it works just fine :) that way when you're ready to apply your foundation the product comes out MUCH faster. If you've tried the clear complexion foundation by almay, this line smoothing one is thicker, so it's harder to get out than that one. But like I said, ever since I've been storing it lying down it's not a problem. anyways: great coverage & doesn't dry out my skin. It blends in sooo nicely, and the colour match is fantastic for me. AND it lasts all day! maybe one touch up if you've really been touching your face or something... but seriously overall it's fantastic! as far as line smoothing goes, I can't really comment on that. hope this helped! feel free to message me with any questions :)
this not only makes my hair LOOK healthy, but also FEEL healthy. after using this stuff my hair has a nice amount of shine, and it's suuuuper soft! I can see why everyone likes it so much :) oh and I loooove the smell!
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup

I LOVEEE this foundation, I'm actually so impressed with it! I've never tried any almay product, but I liked the idea behind this one so I decided to try it. And I have to say, I like this foundation more than high end brands I've had (ex. MUFE matte velvet) the coverage of this foundation is amazing, yet natural, while MUFE's matte velvet just sits on the skin making it look super obvious and unnatural. But this foundation blends into the skin and makes my skin look pretty amazing - and trust me thats never how I describe my skin. it stays on really well, and I'm again incredibly impressed with the colour match! and as far as actually fighting acne, I find that it actually DOES kindof control my acne.. like if I have a spot coming in, you know how by the end of the day it will come to a head and look super gross? with this I find it makes the pimple much smaller and less obvious.. I'm serious! oh and the product is runny enough that it comes out of the bottle easily; hope this helps :) feel free to message me if you have questions!
