This is a really nice moisturizing lip balm. Love the colour, its very pretty water melon pink!! It tingles a bit, but I like it esp in the summer a very cooling effect!! Its just a bit small compared to other balms.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
Rabiad 11/11/2009 5:59:00 PM
I have really oily lids, so after only 1 or 2 hours I just have a few ugly lookin streaks left on my eye lids from what used to be a gorgeous eye shadow colour!! I bought shadow insurance after reading all the raving reviews... Tried it on with one of my eye shadows which pulls the dissappearing act the quickest... I found that the staying power of the shadow is enhanced... I mean i put the eye shadow on at 7.00 in the morning and I got home around 10.00 at nite and the eye shadow was still ON!! I cud'nt believe it! It does'nt protect against the creases though, so although the shadow was still on there were still some creases... but beggers can't be choosers...So I am happy that for the 1st time my eyeshadow did'nt just dissappear, so I'll definatley keep repurchasing!
Treatments -Zapzyt - 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel
Rabiad 10/1/2009 1:37:00 AM
I did'nt like this product at all. Did not do anything for my Acne, it just dried my skin and made it look blotchy!!
I found this product to be pretty average. It did'nt really break me out but it did'nt do anything special for me either. Everytime I put it on, it looked really fake and dry and you could literally see it as this ashy colour on my skin. Did not like it all!! I am using Nude minerals atm and they are fantastic.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
Rabiad 9/15/2009 7:18:00 PM
This is a pretty good scrub. Cheap and effective. I have tried a lot of different scrubs but this is the only one that really get all the dirt and frime off my face. I am giving it 3 lippies cause it can be a bit harsh on your skin and this is'nt an everyday sort of a scrub... maybe once a wk.
Lips -Bourjois - Rouge Hi-Tech Water-based liptint [DISCONTINUED]
Rabiad 9/10/2009 8:20:00 PM
Love this product!! I am not a big fan of lipsticks as they look quite ageing on me. But these lip stains do the job percectly. I put it on in the morning and voila I don't have to worry about retouching for the whole day. Its quite matte so I usually put on a gloss over it!! I have all 4 colours and they are all fantastic!
Masks -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 40% Lactic Acid Peel
Rabiad 7/9/2009 9:01:00 PM
For the past 3 years I have been getting regular lactic peels at a salon, so once everymonth I spend about $75 dollars and get a peel done. After all the reviews on MUA I decided to give this a go.. although I was'nt covinced... but I thought what the heck. I bought the sample size.... which is a LOT by the way it will last me a good 6 months. Anyhows I left it on for about 5 minutes no stinging and I did'nt notice any immediate effects afterwards. But the next my skin felt great... it works just like the treatments in a salons... I hav'nt noticed any difference btw this and what my salon did... and this is dirt cheap in comparision. Fades acne scars, keeps acne at bay and helps with ageing. excellent product... I would definatley purchase again. However the Ph solution is going to run out soon... but I guess ladies here have been talking about witch hazel... so i'll give that a go!!
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - MooGoo - Full Cream

I love Moogoo they have gorgeous products. Really like this cream, very moisturising and has a very sweet scent!! I really love all there soaps aswell esp the milk, honey and oatmeal its smells divine!!
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Exposed Skincare
Rabiad 6/29/2009 12:27:00 AM
I am a bit of a product junkie, however I find that everytime my skin starts to act up I always end up back on exposed. I have combination skin with oily T zone, and I tend to break out these area quite often. I was on Proactiv for quite a few years but that my skin really dry and blotchy... I've been using exposed for about a year now and my skin has never felt better. The breakouts are gone, my skin is clean and clear. I use exposed maybe 3 nights a week to keep my skin clear from breakouts and switch with other moisturizers in between. 5 stars, because I know no matter how many ugly breakouts I get, if I use exposed properly for even just one week they will be all gone. Always have exposed skin care in my cupboard!!
I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I love the way it makes my skin looks, it gives a great silken finish and your skin just looks amazing!!! like I have perfect gorgeous silky smooth skin!! What I don't like is the spray, it makes such a mess, I usually get it on my hairline, eyebrows, eyelashes and its a pain getting the excess off.. it takes a while to blend everything in... and I find the spray just annoying, maybe its just me but I can't get used to spraying something on my face... I love it and my makeup box would'nt be complete without it BUT I only use this for special occasions and not for everyday use simply because its messy and I find the packaging extremly annoying.
Cleansers -Jan Marini - Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser
Rabiad 6/3/2009 2:10:00 AM
Love it!! This is one of the best cleansers I have used. It is really effective in taking all the days dirt and grime off your face. It cleared up my acne/clogged pores and help with the scars aswell. Excellent cleanser... The only downside is that it does'nt remove makeup and you have to use it on dry skin.
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure
Rabiad 5/31/2009 10:15:00 PM
I have been using jojoba oil as a cleanser, hair treatment and body oil!! Its made my skin really soft and moiturized. My hair's healthy and shinny. I have been using it on my face aswell, this product did'nt break me out, on the contrary, it seems to be controlling the oil and the breakouts. My skin has never felt better. I mix it with a few drops of Rose hip oil and use it as a moiturizer on damp skin every morning. UPDATE - I think I allergic to this product as I developed some rashes/pimples on my skin. But its still great for the hair
I bought rosehip oil after reading all the raving reviews on MUA, and I was a bit skeptical about it. I have oily/combination skin and I break out quite often.... so quite a few scars aswell. I have only been using RHO for about 2 weeks and my skin has never felt better. Its moisturized, my scars are fading and my skin feels like velvet. I can't believe how much of a difference its made. I have been getting compliments on my skin from everyone. Its dirt cheap compared to all the expensive cleansers and moisturizers I had been using, you only need a few drops, its naural and it actually works. 5 stars!! UPDATE: although I originall loved this.. after a few weeks use I developed little bumps and rashes on my skin... I think I may have an allergy to it!!
Treatments -Jan Marini - RECOVER-E ADVANCED ANTIOXIDANTS
Rabiad 5/20/2009 8:14:00 PM
This a lovely cream, my skin just loves it. Great for moisturizing in the winter months. My skin usually get dehydrated during winter, this really kept my skin hydrated and gave it a glow. It smells really nice and the jar is soo cute. I don't think it improved my skin tone or anything, just a great moisturizer. However, I did think it was a bit expensive for just a 30g jar which lasted me only about a month, so I think I'll only use it during the winter months when my skin needs a little extra help. UPDATE: This cream broke me out. I developed tiny bumps all over my cheeks, which kept increasing day by day, every day I would wake up and find a new ugly red mark (and I never get any pimples on my cheeks). I have stopped using this and the pimples are getting better... So I won't be repurchasing!!
Treatments -Jan Marini - Bioglycolic Lightening Gel
Rabiad 5/20/2009 8:03:00 PM
This is a pretty good product. I have acne prone skin and a lot of acne scars, I used this for for about 3 months and discovered that it really helped with the fading the scars, and keeping the skin clean in general. It tingles a bit when you 1st put it on and goes on a bit oily. You have to use it regularly for it work effectively... takes a while to fade the scars so don't expect miracles. I would have purchased again if I was'nt using ultraceuticals even skin tone serum which worked wonders on my skin.
