I don't make aspirin mask for my face anymore. It didn't do anything for me. But I'm still giving it five lippies because it really worked for my sister.
This is my review for Givenchy popgloss - #453 Pep's Pink. I got this lipgloss from a friend who was in Jordan for her vacation. And appearently Givenchy is quiet big down there. I loved the elegant packaging and the beautiful frosty pink colour. However, I thought this was going to be one of those I'd never wear because I'm not too fond of lipgloss. I find it to be messy and sticky. It's very difficult to find a lipgloss that looks subtle yet not invisible and at the same time something that feels like you're wearing nothing. Popgloss suit this exact description. And I never have to re-apply it, it has great lasting power. I definately recomend Givenchy for those who like an elegant yet subtle look to wear at daytime as well as evening.
Skintype: DSPW I tried this moisturizer yesterday night. And within 2 min I felt as if my face was going to burn off! I ran to the bathroom and washed my face in lukewarm water for about 5 min. Although the burning feeling subsidized, my face felt very sensitive for a long time after that. I don't really know what might have caused this. But I'm going to give the moisturizer one last try and see what happens. Although this time with a lot of caution. I will update this review in a week. UPDATE: This moisturizer doesn't work for me. It still hurts wearing it and that's not a good thing. Those with oily/normal skin might make this work. But dry/senstive ladies, beware!
Skincare - Face -NIA 24 - Physical Cleansing Scrub
LadyBug_here 10/9/2007 10:04:00 AM
Skintype: DSPW This is a scrub with very small and gentle particles in cream. After the first try I feel a tingling sensation. After 20 min that feeling increases and turns into a burning sensation. Scared, I wash my face off. If there's one thing I learned about skincare is that if it's hurting it should not be on your face. My face also feels dry and tight after using this. In defence of Nia I must add that I have the worlds most sensitive and reactive skin. So although it didn't work for me it might work on many people. I'll update this review in a week or so. UPDATE: This does not work on my skin. Dry and sensitive ladies, please try this with caution.
Skintype: DSPW If you have dry and sensitive skin I REALLY recommend you to try glycerin. At night, before going to bed, take 1-2 drops of glycerin in your palm, mix it with moisturizer/serum of your choice and apply. The next day you will wake up with hydrated, glowy, smooth skin. It's a skin-saver for those cold rough winters!
Skintype: DSPW E45 is like a sophisticated version of Vaseline. I love the texture,however I think this is only good to use as hand/foot/body cream. I used it on my face and my face started breaking out within 12 hours. But I love it for my hands and it heals my cracked heels. So if you feel Vaseline is too oily or difficult to work with, I'd recommend you to buy E45.
Skintype: DSPW My skin is very dry, specially now in the autumn. Reading the rave reveiws here in MUA I decided to try this tinted moisturizer-like foundation. PRO: Nice consitency and free from any fragrance and silicone. I suffered from no breakouts nor irritations (although I only tried the sample once). CON: Clinique is still very backward and carries only 5 shades whereas none have yellow undertone. The foundation is stuffed with sparkles. For anyone who's looking for a daytime look this is not it. I will not be purchasing this again.
Skintype:DSPW I'm DSPW, the most difficult skintype of them all. I've had sucess with most of the LRP products. I was very excited to know about this moisturizer. However my excitment was shortlived. I received a sample from tubotica which I tried. The consitency is very difficult to work with. It doesn't go on as smooth as LRP Hydraphase. After 2 days my skin felt irritated and I started breaking out on my chin. I'm suspecting it's the squalane. This prooves that one skincare line is not enough when treating your face. I won't be buying this again and I'm glad for those who made it work for their skin =)
Skintype: DSPW I am a "tinted moisturizer"-kind of girl. But after hearing so much about this foundation I decided to give it a try. I was looking for a foundation that has a lot of yellow in it. The foundation felt silky and looked very natural. It gives a medium coverage. The only complaint I have is that I still didn't find a shade that suits me. I'm giving it 4 lippies because this is an excellent foundation for those who already have good skin with a few pimples, marks or scars to hide that needs to be hidden.
Skintype: DSPW I've tried the Avene spray about 2 times and it's not doing anything for me. LRP thermal water is more hydrating and calming for my skin. I will not be buying this again and I will be giving this away for swap to someone who use it regularly.
Skincare - Face -La Roche Posay - Thermal Spring Water
LadyBug_here 8/24/2007 5:33:00 PM
Skintype: DSPW This is the first time I've tried a thermal water. I've only been using it for a week so I'll have to update my review later. For now: it calms my skin down, tone down on the redness when my face gets flushed and it feels good spraying it on, now when the weather is so hot. The only drawback is that it can feel a bit sticky for me after I've sprayed it. I also feel my skin getting itchy, I don't know know if it's cause of this mist. I'll have to see with time. EDIT: I am increasing this to 5 lippies because this is a must-have for anyone with sensitive skin. Although this doesn't calm my skin down as much I'd want it to, it's a skin-saver when I feel itchy. Spray it on and any irritation or itching calms down immediately.
Skintype: DSPW I recently started to try a sample of this Vit. C. After 3 days I started to developing tiny red bumps and my skin started to feel itchy. I will not be buying this.
Skintype: DSPW I used Differin mostly for anti-age. Although I use Taz all over my face, my nose doesn't seem to like it. So I thought as Differin is milder, might give it a try. The first few days I noticed improvement: less blackheads, clearer skin, even colour. But later on my nose seem to look more red than usual. So I stopped. I give it 3 lippes because overall this was a good product but it just didn't seem to suit me.
Skintype: DSPW I have quiet sensitive skin, so majority of the products I try out turn out to be a dissapointment. So I'm writing this review for those with similar skin like mine. I experienced a tingly, minty sensation at first (like many others here)and it exfoliated well. But the next day I woke up with red patches and subtle, scratch-like marks on my face. It was too harsh for me and I advice those with sensitive skin to be careful when trying out this product.
Skintype: DSPW I've been using the serum for about 2 months. It's not supposed to make any difference on your skin because it's for prevention rather than any sorts of treatment. However, this irritates my hyper sensitive skin. It burns a bit and it increase the redness. I'll stick around for a little while but I'm leaning towards trying Skinmedicas vit c.
