Moisturizers -Yes To Carrots - Yes to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream
MerryHappy 2/14/2013 4:02:00 PM
I am adding this product. I bought it along with the soothing eye gel. The scent is way too powerful. It felt a little greasy. I thought, as a Yes to Carrots product, it would be great. I was wrong. It caused a weird allergic reaction, when paired with the eye gel, that caused my eyes to swell and expel mucus. I felt like i had pink eye or was going blind. I will never buy this again.

I got this because a sales associate at WalgreensWalgreens recommended it. It was Terrible. I'm glad it worked for her, but this and the yes to cucumbers night cream made my eyes swell and expel mucus. It was like i had pink eye, but i didn't! The irritation went away immediately after i returned it and switched back to Loreal.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum

I have recently become obsessed with Korean skin care routines and decided i was severely lacking in the serum department. I looked at reviews for this, and saw they were generally positive, and felt secure buying it. PROS It had a pretty bottle. It is well marketed. (what more does a product need to succeed than those two things, right?) CONS Thicker than any other serum I've tried (free sampled from sephora, orgins,etc). It is NOT non-comdonegenic. It contained various ingredients of various inflammatory scales (i checked online after it broke me out). The scent is too strong. So now my skin is recovering from a major breakout after this about the weeks. I would suggest if you have sensitive or acne prone skin to ignore the pretty red bottle and promises of bright, smooth, even skin.
I told the salesgirl at sephora I wanted 'eyelashes like a doll.' I usually use diorshow, and love it, but I tried this and adore it. It separates, lengthens, and overall gives the effect I was liking for. I recommend it.
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Youth Code Day/Night Cream
MerryHappy 4/27/2012 3:14:00 PM
This is literally the worst cream I've ever used. After trying this, I broke out in cystic pimples--something I've had a good hold over for the last few years. I'm extremely disappointed, since I can't find my night cream anywhere. I had been using the neutrogena antioxidant night cream with great results, and it has vanished from the shelves. This cream was a terrible pot hole on my road to finding a new product for my night regime. One good point was the packaging was nice. Edit I used this again, sucked in by other peoples experiences and loved it. Actually i just love the youth code line in general now. My skin was bright and clear.
I bought this product from sasa in order to not have a fake cause a reaction with the missha bb cream (which I also loved) and I LOVE this bb cream. It's amazing. I recommend or highly, as well as ordering it from sasa, since many bb creams on ebay and Amazon can be fakes. There are videos and instructions to make sure they're not knock offs as well, which if you've had a reaction I recommend you look at. It moisturized my asking and left a very even look, I only needed minimal concealer coverage, which is to be expected considering this is a very light bb cream. Anyway, i'm rambling, but I love it.
I thought I would love this perfume--I lusted after it for months. I wanted it more than I had ever wanted any fragrance before. It had wonderful marketing, packaging, and the sample I tried was absolutely divine. But upon wearing it, it faded fast within a few hours. Instead of feeling sexy and feminine like I had hoped for, I was disappointed. I didn't notice the notes that were supposed to be there, but maybe that is just how it reacted to my body chemistry. All I know is it did not meet my expectations, and I found it unfortunately, rather mediocre and average at best :[ I'd maybe be buying it again, seeing how everyone else has responded to it really makes me want to give it another shot, but I don't know. If everyone jumped off a bridge, right?
This is my absolute favorite mascara. No other compares. It separates, lengthens, and makes me look like I have eyes like a doll. I dont notice flaking like I do with other mascaras, I don't have to reapply, I feel like I get volume and length that other mascaras just could not supply me with. This IS the best. I would absolutely reccomend it and will always buy this mascara. J'adore Dior!
Skincare - Face -Kate Somerville - Eradikate Acne Spot Treatment

I've tried this and the Mario version, but I prefer Eradikate. Mario's is a bit less expensive, and is almost the same, but I feel like Eradikate just works a bit better for me whenever I get a 'big' pimple or a breakout. A good friend of mine who is very skin and cosmetics savvy reccomended this to me, and she swears by it. It's also packaged well, and lasts a long time, so the price makes it worth the product.
I have just gotten into bb creams, I got this one as well as skin79 bb cream in the pink bottle. I love this bb cream. The only downside is that it has a 12 month shelf life, unlike skin79 that has an extended life. I have oily skin, so I dont put a moisturizer on before this. It starts out more 'flesh' colored than other bb creams I've seen that can start out very chalky/grey. It would only be, in my opinion, suitable for light skin, because of the one color option. It makes my skin look and feel amazing. It actually looks like skin, as opposed to a cake-y foundation face mask, and the coverage is a bit better than tinted moisturizers. I have to apply concealer, but I still consider the coverage to be exceptional. I feel like it has lived up to what it promises, as after only a few days of use (this and skin79, so I credit both with the improvements) I see tone evening, brighter skin, and a less 'make up' effect that I enjoy. I think something people need to remember is that bb creams are HUGE in asia, and that they sell knock offs on ebay and amazon, and one should only buy from a credible dealer The knock offs can be dangerous and cause allergic reactions and break outs. I went to sasa which is a hong kong based cosmetic company. The experience with them was great. :] All around, I'm pleased.
Scrubs -Biore - Pore Perfect Pore Unclogging Scrub
MerryHappy 2/11/2012 3:28:00 PM
This is the only facial scrub I always go back to. Sometimes I get adventurous, and try new scrubs/face washes. It doesn't go well for me. I've tried everything from etaphil to clinique, including organic natural cleansers, and this is the only face wash that consistantly cleans up my skin. I wouldn't call myself incredibly prone to acne, but I will break out and, always after going back to this I have great skin again. I would definitely recommend it.
