I love my epilator. I got the most expensive one on sale for 10% less and so far, it has worked perfectly. The adaptor does heat up a little if you want to do both legs in one sitting. I find that I have to wait for 15-20mins to let it cool down a bit. Other then that, its a wonderful product which takes sometime to get used to. For some people the pain maybe unbearable but my capacity for pain seems to be limitless :) so I;m all good. Just don't use it a few days before your period....it will hurt like hell. If anyone has any advise on how to clean the tweezers please do let me know. thanks!
Treatments -Neutrogena - Advanced Solutions Facial Peel [DISCONTINUED]

I waited so long to get this product and unfortunatley, my hopes were set too high for this. Initially, I did experience a smoothness in my skin but now I think maybe I wanted to feel a change too much to notice anything objectively. Now, I get a slight redness after use that lasts for an hour atleast. And as for any scar reduction, I can't say it helped at all. It was way too expensive for something that a good scrub and moisturizer can do easily. Definitely woun't purchase it again.
I first saw this mask when I went to get a facial on one of my vacations. The results were great and lasted for days but I always assumed it would be an expensive mask. hell no! I love the price, and effectiveness of this product. My skin looks the best it ever did and all thanks to finding the right combination of products. I use Hydrafesh moisturizer from Loreal, twice a week I use Marcelle's exfoliating facial scrub (another product used on one of my facials), once a week I use Pure Ambition mask and once a week I use Neutrogena's facial peel. Sounds alot but using once a week, it takes me no more then 5mins to be done and the result is wonderful skin! Oh, and if someone is looking to reduce acne scars, try this...buy a small piece of alum, wet it and rub on the scars for a few mins. Let it stay for about 15mins and wash off. Works great!.
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - hydrafresh moisturizer (oily skin)

I'm not sure if this is where you review the green colored Hydrafresh moisturizer but anyways if you have oily/combo skin, do give this a try. It has cleared my skin tone, and no breakouts from this at all. It cost me about $13 CDN at Walmart and althought it does sort of make your face look a bit shiny at first, I have found that if you apply it on a slightly moist face, it totally dries up in your skin and all you feel is soft smooth skin. Definitely a repurchase!
I will get my first pair soon. Only wanted to mention a weird observation. On their website, the model is Meredith from the Bachelorette. lolzz I need a life!.
I waited too long to buy this but it was definitely worth it. The pain is tough but you get used to it eventually although some areas will always hurt...especially underarms. OUCH! I have a problem though, I am left with small dots all over my legs which look like big pores. I exfoliate daily and do everything right but still have this problem. Do I need to have them grow longer? I used to wax before and never had this problem. Please do let me know if you have a solution. PS: I only get this on my legs...nowhere else.

My esthetician recommended this scrub after I went in for a facial. I should have bought it sooner but I thought nahh I'll just keep using my St.Ives scrub which was literally tearing up my skin. Anyways, I got this in a special deal. And the first itme I used it, I actually felt a difference in the texture of my skin. It felt the way it does after I get a facial. A little on the expensive side but still, with the kind of skin I have, I will buy it again.

Can this be used on face as well? I use it all over but I do have acne-scars on my combo skin and would love to know if it can be used on face or not. I'm too afraid to experiment....please reply soon!
This is the best shampoo out there for dandruff and other scalp problems. I had some irritation on my scalp and was getting blood on my hands a few times. I went to see my doctor and she suggested this shampoo and told me to avoid touching my scalp while I brush my hair. Well within 3 uses, my problems were over. The itching goes away with first wash, and then from then onwards, I use it once a week or two. It is quite expensive but totally worth it. I leave it on for about 5-10 mins in the shower and it leaves my hair soo silky and refreshed. A definite must in your bathroom!
It does nothing compared to all the fuss they make on TV about it. I was fool enough to buy it for 4 months and wish I could have my money back. It did nothing significant. And they said it makes significant changes in your skin. Sure, my skin got a little better in terms of tone and texture but for acne? nothing. I guess you can try it once and see if it works out for you or not. I would recommend regular use of the asprin mask.
I agree with everyone here. It lifts small gross stuff which is fun to look at (I know it sounds disturbing ) but if you are looking for regular cleaning get a facial done and then use them once every week. I bet the pores will stay much cleaner. It is expensive however.
These are very convenient and the results last a long time. I get threading done on my eyebrows and upperlip so these are great for legs or other body hair. You need to get the technique right or else the skin does come off and I have learned this the hard way. For first time users, try on your leg first to get the right grip and speed and then do on your face. And the strip is reuseable several times. I can use one side 3-4 times. Great product!.

It's a great conditioner!. I leave it on for 5-7 mins after shampoo in the shower and the result lasts for atleast 2 days. Infact, I dont even have to comb my hair the next morning! MY only problem is the cost which was about $22 CDN and that its hard to get out of the bottle and I spend alot of time shaking the bottle to get to the bottom. But who cares...I love it. A definite repurchase.

yummmmm....I love this moisturizer. And the scent doesnt bother me, infact, I think I have gained weight by just smelling like chocolates! life is so unfair....
I use the Cinammon color. Looks really nice but it dries out my lips and for some reason, I dont get any color on the inside my lower lip. What I do is apply a little of Outlast first and then a few seconds later, I apply my other lipstick. The new color stays longer and doesnt dry out that much. It would be better to use a light color of outlast as a base so that your other shade stays exactly the same.
