Treatments -Giovanni - Vitapro Fusion Leave-In Hair Treatment
Hysa 10/1/2012 7:35:00 PM
I LOVE IT. I have veeeery dry, coarse, extremely damaged hair, and this, combined with proper care, improved its condition a lot. I can really tell the difference when I use the treatment - it moisturises, gives more body to the hair and makes it look (and feel!) a lot healthier. I apply a large amount on wet hair, blow dry it at the lowest temperature, and then apply a bit more on the almost dry hair. Result - sleek (ok, sleek-ish) hair:) I've used a lot of leave-ins, both creamy and liquid formulas, both cheap and expensive, and i must say this one is definetely one of the greats. Oh, and i do love the fact that it does not containe silicone and other -cones since they do no good to the hair in the long run (know it firsthand). I got it on iherb.com, you can use my code IKI777 to get a discount on your first purchase from this site.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Now Personal Care - Cocoa Butter with Jojoba Oil
Hysa 10/1/2012 7:21:00 PM
Even if the product wasn't any good at all, I'd still buy it again since it smells amazing. It is very fun to put this on, melting it in your hands first. Speaking of its actual purpose, i absolutely love it and prefer it over regular cocoa butter (which i used before on my stretchmarks) - it's easier to apply and it feels more nourishing and less wax-ey, than, say, Cococare Yellow Stick. I use it as a moisturiser on the driest areas of my body (did wanders to my hands after they were ruined by the sun during my beach vacation), for the stretchmarks, especially - I think they have faded a little (nothing magical, though) over 2 months. Also i apply it on my split ends (very important no to overdo it here) - they are definetely healthier and look and feel sleeker. Overall, i am completely satisfied with the product. For the best results it is important to use it right - alternating with a moisturizing cream or gel, since natural oils and butters can dry the skin out if used exclusively for long periods of time. I got it on iherb.com for less than $7, you can use my code IKI777 to get $5 or $10 off your first order.
I wasn't actually expecting a lot from this palette, i just wanted a range of different neutral eyeshadows of decent quality. Which "naked" is not, even though the concept is super nice. That's why: -seriously, it's TOO MUCH GLITTER! It's not that silky tiny shimmers, it is seriously a cheap tacky glitter not even a teenager would wear - only two matte shades -many colours seem alike -massive fallout - packaging is not convinient to use and the velvet will catch lint - not that it matters, since i have professional brushes, but the brush suck Overall - only 4 colours turned out to be wearable for me. Advice to all - spend your money on a nice 4-colour Dior palette for the same price and uncompareable quality. oh, and the UDPP is nice)
I agree with the reviews here saying it is similar to some Bulgari's perfumes, i think they have a lot in common and the concept is the same. But Chloe Love for me is unique, its like everything i like about Bulgari plus the freshness and plus powdery notes and warm honey undertone. I dont see anything "old lady" or "unsexy" about this smell. It makes me feel feminine and calm. Men seem to like it too)
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz
Hysa 10/27/2011 8:56:00 PM
A set of three glosses came free w/ my purchase on vs.com What can i say? This one is ok. It does the job - the colour is pretty, it sparkles and does not leave anything on your lips when it dryes, does not dry the lips out. BUT! The smell is too synthetic and the shimmer is a bit сrude. There are a lot of better options for the same price out there.
Simply the best body lotion i have ever tried and i tried a lot of them since i am obsessed with moisturizing. This one is perfect: rich, thick, buttery, it made my skin silky smooth like never before. And even if its performance wasnt so outstanding, the smell still tops everything else. It is a perfect natural tropical scent i keep smelling on my wrist every time i wear the lotion. This is so really sad for me to know it is discontnued. If only i knew, i'd buy a dozen. Dozens, actually
Fragrances -Bulgari - Rose Essentielle EDP - limted edition
Hysa 10/27/2011 2:29:00 PM
One of my favourite parfumes. It is very close to "the perfect rose scent" i am looking for. It is not pure rose though, it has notes of wood and musk. Very feminine and classy, works for both day and night. I always get a lot of "you smell nice" when i use it. I got it first at Marshall's for 25$, but after the bottle was over i purchased a new one for the full price. It is totally worth it.
Hair -Sexy Hair Concepts - Curly Sexy Hair Shampoo
Hysa 10/27/2011 2:22:00 PM
One of the few shampoos i've tried that has actually made my hair look worse. It's too silicone-y, it does not moisturize whatsoever and the smell is far from pleasant. I will never buy anything from this brand again
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
Hysa 10/27/2011 2:19:00 PM
That's actually a nice cream for the night use. I normally put an enormous amount onto my hands and put my moisturizing gloves. It works really well, my hands are smooth and soft in the morning. The only con is: there's nothing unique about this product, there are a lot of alternatives for better price
Fragrances -Donna Karan - DKNY Be Delicious Parfum Spray
Hysa 10/27/2011 2:08:00 PM
i used to own this and quite enjoyed it for the first few weeks, it does smell like an apple, but omg, its too fruity and sweet, too loud i'd say. But the worst part is that it'so easily recognized. Whenever i smell it in some public place, i'm always like "no, not "be delicious again"! It's like every 5th girl smells of that parfume. Overall: dislike
My favourite since high school. i own a lot of parfumes and i am actually quite picky about them, but this is definetely my day-time favourite. Fresh, flowery and very feminine, i never get tired of the scent. Makes me feel comfortable and cheers me up
May be i don't get this product, but it does NOTHING to my frizzy coarse wavy hair, and i've used it for several months. They stay just as they were before i applied it. The only thing nice about this product is its smell.
Powders -Guerlain - Meteorites Perles d'Or - Holiday 2010
Hysa 10/27/2011 8:54:00 AM
I wanted to love it so much after all the hype we have here in the russian beauty community, buy it was a big disappointment. Too glittery, too white. It makes my face look very pale and kind of "flat". These are my first meteorites and i think the last.
I like to experiment with my make up and i've never bought any make up item twice. Why, if there are so much to try out there? The only exception is this product. i've used three or four in a year (even though it's a bit pricey for me) and i just can't get enough of it. First, i love the smell a lot. But what's important is how it makes my dull combination skin look like. It really lightens up the whole face and gives this nice pink glowy undertone, makes my pores invisible and does not make my skin greasy or oily at all. Absolutely love it.
I don't get the reviews saying " i have dry and sensitive skin and this has dryed my skin out". Well, what did you expect from an oil-free acne cleanser? Nevertheless, i do have very oily skin w/big pores and i thought that this cleaner is kinda harsh to dry my oilyness a little bit. But the results have beaten my expectations. The skin was completely dry out, it even started to peel, and not on my cheeks(i just didnt apply it there), on my nose and forehead. Thats's terrible. Also the smell is very medicine-y and not plesant at all. I do not recommend to buy it to anyone
