Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Body Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion for Dry Skin
Dreamer731 5/19/2013 11:52:00 PM
I have normal to dry skin and this lotion is great for my skin type. This lotion is light and non greasy and absorbs quickly into my skin. Leaves my skin super soft and smooth. And when I say soft and smooth I mean soft and smooth without and sticky residue. However I do wish this lotion had a better scent. But still it's awesome so it still gets 5 lippies from me.

I love the scent of this body wash. I don't detect any coconut scent in this which is fine because it still smells divine. I love the rich creamy formula and the soft clean floraly scent. It lathers really well and It leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturized. It's like a little daily luxury.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash
Dreamer731 5/18/2013 1:09:00 PM
I think I finally found the perfect cleanser for my sensitive skin. I have tried lots of cleansers in search of one that won't cause irritation. I had previously tried neutrogena "Ultra Gentle" cleanser which was horrible! It stung my face and dried it out. It also has a lot of fragrance which is a no no for sensitive skin. Ok back to the product. This foaming cleanser cleans my face very well without giving it that tight dry feeling. This is truly gentle and doesn't clog my pores or cause breakouts for me. This has everything I wanted in a facial cleanser something simple and gentle that won't over dry that cleans thoroughly and above all doesn't break me out. My complexion is already looking clearer and more even thanks to this product. My skincare regimen is pretty simple. I wash my face with this cleanser. Then I use natural witch hazel for my toner. Then I follow with an oil free sensitive skin facial moisturizer. I will purchase this again and again.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Foaming Cleanser
Dreamer731 5/16/2013 12:42:00 AM
Ok so I'm on a quest to find the perfect facial cleanser for my sensitive skin. I saw this facial cleanser and saw the words "Ultra Gentle". The bottle states that it's dermatologist developed for sensitive skin. It also promises not to over dry skin. This is the worst so-called sensitive skin facial wash I have ever used. Why would Neutrogena advertise this product as being "Ultra Gentle" for sensitive skin. This has a strong fragrance and fragrance is one of the biggest irritants of sensitive skin. I don't understand why they would add a fragrance to this product. This burned when I washed my face with it. It made my face tight, dry, red and irritated. It doesn't lather well or remove make up well. This product is not cheap I paid almost $10 for this. I ended up returning this and getting my money back. Horrible product!
I bought this cleanser because it's made for sensitive skin and it's fragrance free. However I didn't realize it was a non foaming cleanse until I tried it for the first time. It looks and feels like lotion and well, it feels like your washing your face with lotion. It also did not do a very good job of removing my makeup. I have to say though it is a truly gentle cleanser. It did not cause any break outs for me. It's very moisturizing as well. So if your a person with dry sensitive skin you may want to give this product a try. This just wasn't quite what I was looking for in a facial cleanser. I think foaming cleaners do an overall better job of cleansing and removing makeup.
I have sensitive skin and I purchased this night cream because I was drawn to the word "light" and the fact that it's oil free, fragrance free, and won't clog pores. I thought it would be a light and simple cream. First of all there is nothing "light" about this cream. It is very rich and heavy and leaves a greasy layer on my face. The first time I tried this my face was so greasy and shiny I had to dab some off with a paper towel. And still my face looked and felt oily. So the second night I used it very sparingly and the same thing happened. My face looked like an oil spill. Since it's near summer I really wanted something light. This may work for the cold dry winter months, but it's definitely too heavy for this time of year. I'm still using this product and I will use it all up because it doesn't break me out. So that is a plus for this cream. So I give this 3 lippies because I believe this product will work better in the winter months. And because it did not break me out. I may purchase this again in the winter and I will update....
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture Sensitive Skin
Dreamer731 5/7/2013 8:49:00 AM
This moisturizer is great for my sensitive skin. I had previously tried Olay sensitive skin facial lotion and it was horrible. This really hydrates and soothes my dry irritated skin and reduces the redness on my cheeks. This non greasy oil free formula doesn't clog my pores my and cause breakouts like other brands have done. This leaves my face soft and smooth and it helps to even out my skin tone by reducing the redness. There is not an once of tightness in the face after using this, no burning or anything. This is definitely the best facial moisturizer I have used on my face so far. Great product I will continue to purchase.
I like this facial cleanser a lot. This is definitely a classic cleansing cream. This cleanser doesn't lather yet it cleans my face thoroughly. It also washes off my make up thoroughly. Love the refreshing tingle but I'm not a fan of the overpowering medicinal smell. All in all still a great cleanser and this doesn't irritate my sensitive skin which is an added bonus.
Gels/Soaps -Dove - Purely Pampering in Shea Butter With Warm Vanilla
Dreamer731 4/24/2013 9:50:00 PM
This body was smells so divine! Smells like warm vanilla. So soft and comforting and it has a nice rich creamy lather too. Really moisturizes, softens and, smooths my skin. I also love that it comes in a 24 oz bottle so it lasts quite a while.
I'm really surprised this soap got such negative reviews. I really like the soft smooth texture this gives my skin. The scent is soft and fresh. It has a great creamy leather. I really like this soap. I wish it was easier to find. I don't think Nivea makes this soap for sale in US stores. I've only been able to find this in discount/closeout stores. Good product.
Hair Color -Revlon - ColorSilk Buttercream in Dark Brown
Dreamer731 4/24/2013 2:18:00 PM
I very seldom color my hair. I was attempting to fix a bad coloring job that left my hair bright orange! My natural hair color is dark brown so I purchased this because it's close to my natural color. I also liked the fact that this product is ammonia free. I followed the directions I sectioned my hair into fours as described. I worked thorough one section at a time. The directions say to leave on for 25 minutes. I left it on for and additional 5 minutes because I wanted good coverage on all the orange hair. After 30 minutes I rinsed thoroughly and conditioned. I still had patches of orange hair! I think I should have left it on for 40 minutes. I'm going to wait a couple of weeks and redye with a different brand. Will never purchase this brand again. Edit 5/7/2013: It's been two weeks since using this hair color and it has faded considerably since then. Even with the use of color protecting shampoo and conditioner. This is more like a semi not a permanent dye. I'm definitely going to dye my hair again in two weeks with another brand.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
Dreamer731 4/7/2013 10:48:00 AM
This BB has okay coverage. But after a few hours of wear it made my face look oily. After a couple weeks of use I noticed it was causing me to break out. I also didn't like the thin watery consistency of this product. I won't purchase this again.
I have double processed relaxed and color treated hair. This is the best DC I have ever used. I've been using this DC for the past couple of years and I love it. I have tried the "Queen Helene" cholesterol, but it always left my hair hard and stiff and very tough to comb afterwards. The "Silk Elements" is so different it softens and smooth hair and has wonderful slip. I leave in on my hair for about an hour or so under a plastic cap then I rinse. My hair is very moisturized and easy to comb through.
Styling Products -L'Oreal - EverStyle Smooth and Shine Creme
Dreamer731 3/23/2013 3:23:00 PM
This light non greasy cream is great for my fine dry hair. I use this as a blow dry cream. I use about a nickel size amount and concentrate on the ends and middle of my hair. My hair very smooth and shiny. I'm very pleased and with purchase again.
I used the toasted almond kit and I really love this formula! This is the first highlighting system that didn't cause dryness or breakage to my hair. I have medium brown hair and my highlights are a soft honey color. And for the first time they didn't look dry. In the past I didn't have the best luck with other kits. I would end up with dry brassy looking highlights that looked like straw. The only thing I was not crazy about was the finger comb thing. It kept falling off my finger during use so I finished up with an applicator brush. I will definitely purchase again in the future but I will use a regular applicator brush.
