Eye Shadow -GOSH - Wtareproof e/s stick in Love that Champagne!

Got this on sale at SDM. I love how easy it is to apply in the twist up applicator, and it's also great to use if your in a rush and just need a quick swipe of colour. I use this shade everyday as an allover lid colour, and then if I have time I blend it out with a darker colour.
Toners -Aveeno - Skin Clarifying Toner with Soy Extract
beachscene 4/27/2010 12:30:00 AM
I bought this toner so that I could complete my skincare routine of cleanse, tone, and moisturize - all using Aveeno products. This toner was on sale for about 8 bucks, and it is worth every penny. I love how it smells, not too soapy but not like alcohol either. It completely takes off all remaining traces of makeup at the end of the day with one swipe. Love this.
Mascara -Almay - One Coat Nourishing Mascara Triple Effect
beachscene 4/27/2010 12:28:00 AM
My new favourite mascara. It goes on so perfectly and I love what it does for my lashes. The mascara I got was the one especially made for "Lengthening", just because it was in a buy one, get one package. Even though it says lengthening, I feel it does everything, much like this triple effect mascara! Almay is an awesome brand for those of us with super sensitive eyes, other mascaras that I have tried have somehow seeped into my eyes throughout the day and irritated them, but this mascara stays on until I purposely wash it off. Strongly recommended.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Mascara - Blackest Black
beachscene 4/25/2010 1:57:00 AM
My first mascara and my favourite. I have used this for about 2 months and I love it. It adds enough volume for everyday use without looking too dramatic and "fancy". The smell doesn't bother me, and the packaging is simple. I bought this at Dollarama for $2 and the only reason why I can't re-purchase this is because I can't find it there anymore. =( Otherwise, I strongly recommend for people with sensitive eyes, because this doesn't flake on me at all!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
beachscene 4/25/2010 1:54:00 AM
I don't like this product because of the smell. It says that it is "fragrance-free", but it doesn't seem that way to me. The smell just disturbs me and I can smell it lingering on my face throughout the day. I felt that it clogged my pores and although it didn't create breakouts, it also didn't moisturize very well - it sort of just stayed on top of my skin and didn't sink in. The packaging is the only real plus for me in this moisturizer because it looks very fancy-shmancy and professional.
Okay products in this system. I personally wouldn't use it again because of the toner (step 2) in the system. I'm not sure if it contains alcohol or not but it stings when I apply it! The only product I would pick to repurchase would be the moisturizing lotion, and even that is not a great product. I feel you could buy a better moisturizer for half the price and twice the quality. The cleanser isn't so great either, my sensitive skin can't handle it and just goes crazy red.
AWESOME. My absolute favourite nighttime moisturizer! I normally use the Aveeno Ultra Calming moisturizer for day time, because it contains SPF 15, but this Ponds one is thick enough for my nightly regimen. The only problem I have is the actual product container, because I don't like it in a pot that I have to stick my fingers in. Just a minor flaw that I can definately work around because this Ponds dry skin cream is amazing!
Cleansers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser
beachscene 4/1/2010 5:33:00 PM
Very light on the skin - especially good if you have sensitive skin like me! The packaging is quite easy to use, the pump causes the cleanser to foam immediately so you don't have to add water to get the foaming action. Taking it off is also really easy, one or two splashes of water and the cleanser is off! It leaves a nice clean feeling to your face which I really love.
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15
beachscene 4/1/2010 5:31:00 PM
LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER! I use it every morning, and I must say it's amazing. The calming oats(?) that I think are in it, are really working to even out my skin texture and control the redness/blotchiness that I sometimes get. There is a slight fragrance to it, but it's really light and ultra calming - just what the label says! A definite repurchase.
LOVE IT! The quad is so sturdy yet compact and the pigmentation of the colours is quite good for a drugstore product. I love that MAC pan eyeshadows can also fit so I can buy Brule and stick it in there. My quad currently holds Metallic Meltdown and Snowflake.
I got this in the Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes kit so thankfully it was a sample size. I thought this moisturizer would work for my super dry, sensitive skin but instead it gave me a rash all over my t-zone! After I stopped using the moisturizer, the rash disappeared but I've stopped using it since because it just didn't work for my skin. I also found the formula was quite light, and it didn't keep my skin moisturized. I might try out Cosmetic Lad next, but fingers crossed that my skin doesn't react again! I took some points off because the packaging wasn't very sanitary. I mean, you're sticking your hands into a cream that you're going to apply to your face. I much prefer pump bottles, but I guess I get where Lush is coming from with their one of a king packaging.
I bought the Gentle formula for sensitive skin and it works great. I like the little beads that I thought would scratch my skin but in fact it didn't. The smell is also very light, so it isn't overpowering. The scrub itself is very easy to use, but I wouldn't repurchase because I'm not sure it's done anything for my skin. I don't feel any "scrubbing" action with this scrub so I basically bought this to try out (it was on sale for $2!)
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Cream Cleanser
beachscene 3/10/2010 10:08:00 PM
My very first cleanser and it produced awesome results. I bought the one formulated for sensitive skin, so it hasn't broken me out thus far. There is a slight smell to it, but it isn't irritating and I love the tingly clean feeling I get after using this. I use it day and night, and then apply moisturizer right after. Only reason I wouldn't repurchase this is because I am testing out different cleansers to see if they do anything for my skin, otherwise strongly recommended.
SUPER bright colour! Perfect for summertime. I love how it's the orangest of oranges. The only this I have to pick with this product is that you need to apply more than one coat for the colour to show. Other than that, definitely purchase this colour for summer!
I love how bright and vibrant this pink is! Fantastic colour with tons of punch to it. Unlike most nail polishes, the consistency of this colour is just thick enough that one coat is sufficient for the colour to really appear.
