This has alcohol in it and I'm pretty sure it's been drying my hair out because ever since I started using this, sure the oil is gone but my hair is like really frizzy and damaged looking. Not good for people who have damaged or dry hair unfortunately :(
Cleansers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser
TrinaBee 5/15/2013 1:07:00 AM
Just bought this cleanser and used it tonight. It cleans the skin very nicely, smell is nice - it's strong but it's a nice soapy scent. Cleans off makeup almost completely, however I still do a once over with a cleansing wipe afterwards just in case. I noticed a little foundation residue so make sure to tone or use a wipe as well. The foam is a lovely consistency and lathering is a breeze, there's nothing to dislike about this cleanser!! It may not be all that "natural" but it's still better that most of the other drug store cleansers. One thing I did notice was that it itched a tiny bit afterwards but face looked fresh and there was no redness which was what makes me give this product 5 stars :) ps my face is combo/sensitive
So I've used a few organic moisturizers now including some drug store and some high end. I like to try and use only natural facewash/moisturizers because I seem to break out less when I do. So my mom bought me this to use and I really like it! My skin is acne prone so I use 2.5% BP and this seems to keep the dryness at bay and it doesn't clog my pores at all. My skin tends to look dull because of the BP and dryness but because this has luminous qualities it adds a nice healthy glow back into my face. I appreciate this so much! It's definitely what makes this moisturizer stand out plus it's really smooth and feels lovely going on. Would repurchase this for a while including the keys foaming face wash, and I've tried a few organic products but am enjoying this brand the most so far!
I like this lip butter. When I wear it it just looks really fresh and summery looking. It definitely makes your lips stand out without making them look to made up or intense. The red is a beautiful juicy watermelon color with pink undertones. You can wear it sheer or build it up to look a bit bolder. Even my mom thinks it looks flattering on me and she generally hates red lipstick. But this looks more natural and just very pretty looking on any skin tone :) I want to try the sorbet one too!
So I have been using this product consistently for about 4 years now and have not looked back!! BP is pretty much the only thing that keeps my face clear. I have very sensitive skin but BP is so affective for me that I only need to use about a dime size amount for my whole face. Dans recommendation of how much you need to use is in my opinion WAY too much, your skin would be so dry. I find dryness alone causes my skin to break out the most. So you really should only use a little (dime size) keeping that in mind I ALSO use a tea tree oil. So I will apply the BP and after it dries about a minute I put a gentle tea tree oil just over my problem areas (not over my really sensitive areas) and this keeps me almost perfectly clear minus during my period sometimes I will have one or two small blemishes. If you suffer from acne like I did for years this regimen will cure you NO DOUBT! Read below: gentle face wash apply dime size BP once dried apply tea tree oil (young living essential oil is the purest and the best) then apply a fragrant free moisturizer (preferably organic) And your done!! This has kept me perfectly clear, no joke, but also find a moisturizer that is heavy but oil free to clear up that dry skin. ALSO I don't eat any dairy at all. I avoid it like the plague because of the hormones cause me to break out so I am allergic I guess but I don't miss it much! I know this to be true because I went to the dermatologist and was tested and he also recommended me BP so thanks be to the skin specialists!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
TrinaBee 2/27/2013 1:19:00 AM
I bought this foundation because I needed something with more coverage. I really like this foundation because it just makes your skin look so nice! It gives your skin this glowing, polished look without making it look too shiny or fake looking. The look isn't mask like but has more of a natural finish. It isn't a light foundation so it does feel a little heavy on the skin but nearly as heavy as revlon colorstay. This foundation is perfect for skin that is oily however if you have skin that is dry/sensitive you may find it less than perfect. Only because I have combo skin and everything about this is lovely besides the fact that it can make dry skin look more obvious and it does cling to dry patches. I also found it too aggravate dry patches and make them itch. That being said, I do have sensitive skin and I do use a little acne medication. So for people with combo/oily/normal skin this is perfect but for people with dry skin you will have to use a strong moisturizer before hand or it may exaggerate dry skin issues. But I love the packaging and the color selection is nice too especially with the pink undertones as I prefer that to yellow undertones. One of the most flattering looking foundations I have ever worn!
LOVE LOVE this pallete! I prefer the original to the Naked 2 because for my warm skin tone the colors are just softer looking and more flattering. I am wearing this every day, combined with the primer potion this just makes you look effortlessly beautiful no matter which colors you use. Definitely need to have a light hand when applying which I think is good because a little goes a long way with this. Worth the money for sure! I would recommend this to anybody!
So I wore this last summer and I must say it really does make your skin look nice! It gives you a dewy fresh look, it does look kind of thick on the skin which is why I would opt for something lighter and I don't like the scent (scents can be irritating to skin long term) I actually thought this foundation gave me a baby face haha. It just kind of gives your skin this soft baby quality I found it made me look younger. So I switched to Revlon nearly naked but I guess it depends on what look you go for. I see why this is perfect for asian skin seeing as their culture loves that kind of cute look :)
I am using the liquid foundation as well as the nearly naked powder in light. I have combination and sensitive skin. I really love this foundation, it is like revlon colorstay but much lighter. I think revlon colorstay is good for going out at night to a club or something because of how thick it is, but this foundation is perfect for every day use. It feels very comfortable and is a nice light coverage. I still have to use a concealer on a few spots but I also only use one layer of this foundation. With the powder it is a perfect combo. I do get oily at the end of the day in my T-zone but it doesn't look bad, it just looks healthy. Staying power is average, could have better staying power but other than that I love this foundation it's perfect for summer to achieve that natural healthy glow!
I love this mascara but in order to get that fake lash look you really do have to apply so much! It gives you amazing thick lashes but you have to apply so much that it is so hard to remove! I am using makeup remover and I still have troubles so it's good for going out but not for every day unless you have a strong makeup remover. Wears almost like waterproof mascara. Removed one lippe for that :(
I just recently bought this product after reading some reviews and I got the color in glam black. It is probably the best mascara I've tried! It leaves your lashes looking very sleek and thick. It doesn't clump and stays on lashes all day. It definitely gives you flirty lashes!! I would purchase again for sure.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - PureDeming - Intense Gels
TrinaBee 12/21/2012 4:17:00 PM
So I just purchased this gel online and received it quite a while later, but I live in Canada so that is too be expected. At first when you smell this stuff it has a lovely smell, very strong though. I followed the instructions and left on for 45 mins (note: must follow instructions or your skin could react!) It tingles for a long time so I was worried my face would break out but once I washed it off my skin looked very nice! Pores tighter and skin is looking a lot smoother, moisturized, radiant and softer. Red marks faded very slightly so with continued use it would definitely help fade them faster. I am very pleased with this product it's worth the price and wait in my opinion!! Very noticeable skin improvement after first try!
