Treatments (Eye) -Origins - Starting Over Age erasing eye cream with Mimosa
Monke3lov3 7/18/2011 10:32:00 PM
Im only 23 so I dont NEED the product for wrinkles but I am always looking for eye creams to help prevent. I do have some dark circles under my eyes so I thought this would help. It was an expensive bottle and I began using it in February and it is now July and I am about to finish my bottle so it has lasted a very long time. It smelled great and went on smooth but I dont really think it helped my under eye circles. I would probably NOT repurchase.
Cleansers -Origins - Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser with Saw Palmetto and Mint
Monke3lov3 7/18/2011 10:29:00 PM
The Origins lady wooed me into buying this product because she saw a few breakouts on my cheek. I bought because she said the secret ingredient (mint) was going to clear my skin. I tried it for 3 months and had to return it. It did tingle when I used it but it only made me breakout even more, after using it for 3 months and breaking months I realized this just wasn't for me. I wish it would have helped!
Treatments -Zapzyt - 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel
Monke3lov3 7/18/2011 10:22:00 PM
I have been breaking out lately and wanted to put scar cream to heal my scars but the pharmacist told me I had to treat my acne first with benzoyl peroxide so I found this in the acne isle. I thought it was a greta buy because it was cheap AND it had the maximum benzoyl you could get for over the counter. I began using it last week and can already see a difference. It helped some of my bumps disappear and it also made me have some pimples come out (which in my opinion it is taking out the dirt). The only bad thing it did was make my skin VERY DRY even though I moisturized, yet again i do use it morning and night. I will repurchase but the tube is huge so it might take a while to use it all up!
I bought this randomly because it was $3 at CVS and it was HUGE and at first when i smelled it I wasnt in love with it but then i figured i would get over it. When I showered it was an amazing scent of vanilla! It felt so smoothly on my skin and the feeling after my showers i ADORE! I am def repurchasing and you get a LOT of product for only $3
I always get this when CVS has buy1 get 1! i really love how smooth it is. I use it for under my eyes and i medium because light is too light for my skin. I think its so nice if you apply it correctly. I use the wand and swipe it under my eye and with my ring finger, gently pat it over my eye in a dab dab dab motion. It also has SPF which I find pretty convenient. The con is that sometimes it can get cakey and I hate that but its mostly when I am in a rush
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara
Monke3lov3 3/25/2010 8:51:00 PM
I got this on sale and I am so glad I did! I find myself grabbing this mascara when I am going out at night because its waterproof and it works so well! It can get clumpy if you are not carefully applying it. I apply the white first on both lashes then immediately the black and it really does make them longer! It also makes them look fuller and thicker :) Cannot complain!
This is one of the worst mascaras EVER! I am so glad I got this on sale, probably a buy 1 get 1 deal! It is too thick and not only does it end up under my eyes after a few hrs I find it just dont like how it feels! It does give some volume but I would not wear it at night!
I love how this product smells. It literally smells like coconuts and many people dont like that smell but i cannot get enough of it. I use it once a week to exfoliate my body and i use the lotion afterwards and it truly leaves my skin feeling very soft. I have rough spots on my elbows and near my armpits and one particular part on my ankle but after using this product and constant moisturizing, I can say the dryness eliminated :) I would def repurchase but when it's on sale! I got it for a few dollars off but i know they have random annual sales
I really enjoy this foundation. I have acne prone combo skin and after priming and concealing my scars/blemishes i apply the foundation and it gives me heavy coverage! i LOVE how it feels on my skin and how it lasts all day!
Makeup Brushes -Essence of Beauty - Concealer Brush
Monke3lov3 3/25/2010 8:33:00 PM
I LOVE THIS BRUSH! I have acne prone skin so I conceal a lot and I wash it after each use and its perfect because it continues to stay stiff as if I had just purchased it :)! I would buy it again
I realllly like this concealer! I put it under my eyes and I am an NC20 because of my dark circles! I can also place it on my scars/blemishes and do not have to wear makeup on top f it, although it can get cakey! I think its think formula that applies and looks great on the skin. I apply it with a concealer brush from essence of beauty. I would def. repurchase
This is my first primer but I really like it. Its so smoothy and after a few minutes I can apply my make up smoothly without issues. I would buy again and I use it for my mineral makeup as well as my pressed powder!
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
Monke3lov3 3/25/2010 8:23:00 PM
Since I use the Aveeno complexion clearing foam wash I figured I would love the moisturizer, I can say I do not like it. Its soooo greasy and it does not absorb into my skin. i have combination skin and it makes me look so shiny and oily its gross! It also made me break out, I had to go back to my Biore moisturizer. It is also expensive for such a small bottle! Def will NOT repurchase
I ABSOLUTELY love this product. I began to use this during the summer and it goes so smoothly on my face I simply adore it! The cons: Packaging, i dont like the dispenser.... and its small and pricey! I also dont like how its greasy at first but TRUST ME it absorbs so quickly into my skin that after a few minutes I can begin to prime my face for make up! I wear this after the Clinique difference gel
I really like this product. It has a strong smell and I recommend some ventilation or fan near it but it cleans so well and I feel it tingling through my pores. I use it with a cotton pad in an upward motion (to prevent wrinkles) and I also use it on my neck (upward as well) you can see how dirty your face is! I use it both at night and during the day! This is my second bottle :)
