Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Cream with Olive Oil
bluenermal 12/15/2003 4:09:00 PM
I looove this stuff! I usually only spurge on one hair product and, this is the best one i've found! I have very long hair that is wavy when I don't blow dry it. The difference this stuff makes is awesome. I use a nickel-sized amount and put it throught the strands of my hair up to the top. The olive-oil is very moisturizing. After I blow dry my hair it is left very sliky and shiny. If it's humid and I have extra-frizz I can dab a tiny bit on dry hair. An expensive product but worth it if you buy drug-store shampoo and conditioner!
I agree with most reviews. this lotion felt great going on and left no residue. i noticed a significant change in the tone of my face with decreased blotchiness after the first week, but after that there was no miracle phenomenon taking place. it's a nice overall product but doesn't quite live up to its promise--especially for the price!
kills zits. dead. when i first got this i thought it would sting and burn and make my skin raw and red along with killing zits. i was wrong! this white creamish gel when on smooth and soft not at all sticky like most products and did not burn or dry my skin in the least. after spot treating a breakout for 3 days (morn and night) my skin did get a little dry and itchy but i dont need to use it tomorrow bc after the 3 days all signs of my blemishes are gone! it starts to heal them the second u put it on and a few days later they are gone! great stuff! highly reccomend over any other zit treatment including proactive reparing lotion!:)
Gels/Soaps -Aveeno - Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash
bluenermal 4/25/2003 1:03:00 AM
i loove this! all of the baby washes ive tried as cleansers seem to ecentually clog my pores and the fragrance is irritating, but not this cream cleanser! i love aveeno products. the oatmeal in them is soo soothing! no added colors or fragrances which in my opinion you don't need. i use this every morning and BWC aha cleanser at night. my skin has never looked healthier. it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. i heard they are discontinuing this so i went to the store and bought 2 more bottles:)~!
i got this as a GWP and have had it forever. i use it over bronzer above eyebrows, on bridge of nose, and sometimes on cheekbones. i would never put this all over my entire face bc it is so thick and greasy feeling. together with makeup it would create a pore-clogging sludge, but it smells Great!! it produces the prettiest shimmer that glows! more of a makeup, not a moisturizer!!
this is the best lip gloss EVER! it gives a prettier shine and better moisture than ANY expensive gloss and if yuo want color you can crush eyeshadow and mix it with it! my mom has always used it to remove her eye-makeup. whenever i wear heavy eye-makeup i use it as well. it removes all traces of makeup and leaves eyes and lashes healthy and moisturized! i also hate mascara bc i dont like taking it off, so after i curl my lashes i rub vaseline on them and it makes them shiny and keeps them curled!! try it:)
Skincare - Body -Dove - silk-protection soft solid deoderant (click-up)
bluenermal 4/16/2003 1:32:00 AM
i have the most sensitive skin ever! i'm allergic to any fake jewelry, belts, bandaids, ect. (just to let you know how sensitive) i would get horrible, itchy, burning swells under my arm after shaving and rubbing on deoderant. this is the ONLY one i can use that actually nourishes my skin and keeps it from getting irritated! my HG deoderant!:)
i looove this lipgloss! generally, i don't wear anything on my lips except for vaseline, naturistics honey gloss (prob. 5 yrs. old:), and this. this is the only colored gloss i wear. the two pink shades are soo pretty~one is shimmery light pink, the other a deep rosy pink closer to the shade of lips. together, they make the prefect shade when layered! kisses:)
This brand is overlooked wayyy too much! i grabbed this at the health food store while picking up more KMF moisturizer. i was breaking out as usual~following the routine of my horomonal breakout. i love aha's but i didnt expect much from this cleanser. I WAS WRONG!! im soo sensitive most products strong enough to clear blemishes up leave me crystal clear for a few day-a week at the most and then i get terrible reactions to the ingredients. this stuff has kept me constantly clear~not drastic changes back and forth: it gets rid of oil but does not dry my skin or leave me red. its soothing. its organic and has great ingrediants. try it!! UPDATE: i still love this cleanser and it is very effective however it can dry cheeks out a lot! better to use either once a day (i was using it twice) or to use a gentler, moisturizing cleanser when you start to feel dried out! still great though!!:)
Treatments -Clinique - Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel

this thick pure-salicylic acid feeling gel kills whatever you put it on. it is the strongest, most effective spot treater i've used. it feels like its getting right to the source and completely drying up the blemish unlike clearasil or persagel which is more mask-like. however, use sparingly and only apply a drop to the exact blemish-can be VERY irritating and have a reverse reaction if over-applied. kills bacteria dead!
Treatments -Kiss My Face - obsessively organic breakout botanical acne gel
bluenermal 4/5/2003 12:15:00 AM
this is great for people with sensitive skin. the thin gel contains all organic acne and inflammation-fighting ingrediants. it tingles a little-like you can feel it detoxifying your skin. i use this every night and follow with KMF moisturizer so i wont dry out. it smells very mentholly but natural. it has worked good at improving my skin's tone and it has gently helped while not completely stopping my breakouts. will buy again:)
this soap is a staple! dove is probably the first thing i have ever used on my face and what i almost always use on my body. my dermatologist recommended it to me years ago when i asked what was best to use if you have acne and sensitive skin. of course i have strayed to other products with tempting claims like bha and aha's, but there is nothing like the smell and feel of your face after using dove!
i have used this toner on and off since 7th grade! i have tried soo many other toners including kiehls, aveda, and proactive. i like this one the best! it does have alcohol, but it is more effective on oilier skin and mine gets super-slick in this charleston weather. the smell is refreshing and it *feels* like its cleaning bc it tingles. it burned the first year i put it on but my skin has gotten used to it. for the price it removes residue and lives up to its name! always repurchase:)
yes, this scrub can be messy and the oil separates from the scrub in the jar, but the smell is diviiine! i love using this in the summer time in the shower before i go out. i scrub my skin which stays rosy from the color of the scrub and feels like pure, moist silk all day and night! it is left fresh, dewy, and glowing!:)
Scrubs -Kiss My Face - oatmeal and honey facial scrub
bluenermal 3/23/2003 7:03:00 PM
i have had this scrub forever. it comes in a little blue pot (it might not anymore bc i know KMF has recently changed some of their packaging.) i loove the smell! it really does smell like honey and oatmeal, but very naturally. the scrubbies are effective but not too abrasive for sensitive skin and the clay-base is very oil-absorbing. my face is never dried out after i use this. i usually use this at night with the exfoliating gel cleanser.
