Shampoo -TRESemme - Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo
Josie012 2/8/2013 11:36:00 PM
I personally have dry hair and scalp and I thought this was going to help, but in the end this shampoo didn't help at all and probably made me hair drier than it already was in the first place.
Pros: None that I can think of Cons: Product is too waxy Overpriced Isn't very opaque the comb was useless I personally don't like this product at all.It was very waxy and lucid and because of that I had to repeatedly apply this product until the color showed. A lot of the time I felt like I was wasting my time putting extra effort into this product. I also feel that this product was very cheaply made and was overpriced. (FYI, I used the medium brown tone)
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Strawberry Sorbet
Josie012 11/20/2012 7:55:00 PM
Since the past year or so, there's been a rave on these lip balms, so recently while walking around in Target I bought them. What I like the most about these is the packaging. The packaging is very unique and eye-catching and was what really encouraged me to buy this. And i also like the smell. If it wasn't for these two attributes I probably would've given this a lower rating because it's very waxy and doesn't do a good job moisturizing at all. It feels like the balm is just sitting there on top my lips and isn't really going deep down to actually moisturize them.
Pros: Moisturizing Nice packaging Nice variety of colors Nice smell Cons: Color is very sheer Color doesn't last very long Over-priced This product was very moisturizing, had a nice smell, and a good variety of colors. The thing I don't like is that the color starts to fade away within minutes after applying and that the color was very sheer and not as opaque as I wanted it to be. I also think that this is over-priced because I bought mine for about $8..when it really wasn't that great of a product.
Other -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Oil-Free Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes
Josie012 10/6/2012 11:08:00 AM
Pros: Does a pretty good job taking off makeup Doesn't leave any residue behind Oil-free Nice scent Cons: Doesn't remove waterproof mascara. I really like these makeup wipes, they're probably the best that I've ever used. It's the only makeup wipe that doesn't a gross oily residue behind. It leaves my skin fresh and clean for the most part and I'm 95% happy with it. The only thing that I don't like is that sometimes I have to use more that one wipe and that it doesn't remove my waterproof mascara. Other than that, I really like these wipes.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush
Josie012 9/18/2012 7:04:00 PM
Pros: Great Volume Great Length Cons: It smudged very easily It gave me "raccoon eyes" The brush was a bit too big I really liked this product and would have given it a higher rating if it weren't for the strong dark-eye raccoon effect which was tedious to get rid of...other than that it was an excellent mascara... I think I'll buy the waterproof version instead.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
Josie012 8/27/2012 3:09:00 PM
Pros: SPF 30 Natural/Dewy finish Not cakey Easy to use Light-weight 0% oil-free Natural glow Cons: Tends to get very oily throughout the day Wish it had more skin benefits like a TRUE BB cream. Product worns-out as the day goes by ( i suggest to put a primer underneath) I kind of like this product. It's very easy to use and gives a very light coverage..so if you're looking for a medium to full coverage, I suggest you look elsewhere. The color variation is pretty good..but on the other side it tends to get very oily throughout the day in humid/hot weather. I also wish this was more of a TRUE BB cream, like the Asian brands...but oh well. All in all..this is basically a tinted moisturizer.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Skin Brightening Cleanser
Josie012 8/22/2012 5:45:00 PM
Pros: Nice smell Wakes me up in the morning Does a good job cleansing Oil-free Brightens my skin Cons: Drying This product was pretty good for me. It is one of the few cleansers that don't end up breaking me out. I liked pretty much everything about this product but it really dried out my skin...but this isn't a huge problem for me because right after I moisturize. It's an OK product. It's not the best but definitely not the worst.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleaner
Josie012 8/22/2012 5:40:00 PM
Pros: Got rid of all my pimples Non-drying Cons: Left my skin oily Broke me out in blackheads/whiteheads Didn't do a good job in cleaning my skin It's not oil-free I personally didn't like this product. It got rid of all of my pimples but at the same time caused another problem by breaking me out in whiteheads/blackheads. I also felt like my face wasn't really clean when I used this because my skin would feel a bit oily and when I used my toner there would still be a lot of oils/dirt on my skin. I wouldn't recommend this.
Moisturizers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF15
Josie012 8/22/2012 5:34:00 PM
Pros: Moisturizing SPF 15 Cons: Irritated skin/stung Broke out my skin Oily/greasy It's kind of heavy on my face It's not oil-free As you can probably tell, I didn't have a good experience with this product. At first it was it fine and then after a while it started to break me out with whiteheads/blackheads. I also hated how it was VERY greasy and it stung and kind of felt heavy on my skin. This is one of the worst moisturizers I have ever tried.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - makeup dissolving facial cleansing wipes
Josie012 6/19/2012 11:19:00 PM
Pros: Cleaned off my makeup easily Non-drying Cons: Sometimes stung or irritated my skin Leaves an oily sheen/residue Broke me out. I like this product, but I wish it was less harsh and didn't irritate my skin. I wouldn't recommend this to people who have sensitive skin or people with oily skin because it leaves a somewhat oily sheen..but it sort of leaves after a while. I also wish the wipes were a bit bigger because a lot of times I ended up using more than one wipe.
I bought this product a month ago and it's OK. Personally, it matches my skin perfectly. It is a blend of red and yellow undertones, which is exactly how my skin is. It's easy to apply and and goes on smoothly. I have dry patches so sometimes it accentuates some of my dry spots. Another con is that it rubs off very easily..which i hate. Even though it's a MATTE mousse..it doesn't do a good job mattefying and keeping my T-zone under control from the oils.
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Primer Skin Transformer
Josie012 5/6/2012 9:27:00 PM
I bought this product over a month ago and I don't like it at all. It left my face very oily and the texture is is almost like petroleum jelly. It didn't help my makeup at all and because of the slippery oily/jelly-like texture, my makeup easily rubbed off. I personally don't like this and won't buy it again. And It broke me out a little.
I've been using this product for a while now and I really like it. First of all, it was very cheap. It was only $1.49 at my local Walgreens. I bought the waterproof version, so I liked how it lasted for a long time and it never smudged. On the other hand, I wished it gave me more length. The length in this mascara was very minimal and I wanted it to be more noticeable. Also it didn't add much volume to my lashes, which is also a con. This mascara is pretty good for everyday wear, since it gives an extra oomph, without being to over-bearing.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Organic Root Stmulator Carrot oil
Josie012 9/11/2011 10:48:00 AM
Pros: Moisturizing Cons: Lightened my hair color Greasy Heavy consistency Weighed down my hair Leaves a weird smell to hair I personally did not like this product for obvious reasons and won't be purchasing it any time soon.
