Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Schick Quattro for women Trimstyle
chipshumptydumpty 12/17/2011 9:09:00 PM
So I had this thing for exactly a year now and I love it so much now! I used to have the normal shick quattro until I dropped it and it broke so I decided to get this one as a replacement. I hate to shave my bikini area to often cause I get a lot of ingrowns so I use this to keep it clean. The trimmer without the guard (that thing really is useless) cuts the hair so short it looks like a 3 day grown so I'll usually do this and when I really shave it all, this makes the job easier. It works great in the shower and stopped working only once but it was the batteries fault. Shick quattro is way better than Venus in my opinion because it glides more so their's less irritation.
This is my favorite scrub ever and I really can't live without. I have sensitive skin and this is the only one I found so far that is gentle enough to use regularly without drying my face. It's also brightening, so much that the days I don't use it people comment that I look tired. The fact that it's sugar based makes it moisturizing. Finally, it lasts me a long time, like 7 months for one tube that I use every second day.
I got this as a free sample at Sephora the other day. When you smell it in the bottle it's really pleasant and reminds me of Babinours by Yves Rocher, this rare baby perfume I used when I was young that I've been trying to find ever since. It brought back a lot of memories for me and I was quite excited but when I put it on it wasn't the same and after a while the smell was making me nauseous. It does smell like a cotton t-shirt and even though it sounds good in theory I guess it's not that great in reality
I bought this color on a whim and it's my third gold nail polish from OPI (I had Golden Rules and I Only Drink Champagne). This is by far my favorite. It's really pretty, looks like gold foil on my nails and doesn't look too yellow. It looks good on short nails but I prefer to use it as a detail color, like for half-moon manicure, accent nails or under some shatter polish. I think it's a must have in your collection.
Lipstick -Guerlain - Rouge Automatique in Coque D'Or

I received a sample of this at Sephora the other day and I kinda like it. I have never been able to find a pretty red lipstick for my skin tone and if this one was more opaque it would be the one. Its really smooth and is like a sheer red with tons of gold sparkles. I don't really wear lipstick so this one is gonna last me a while and i'm probably gonna use it a lot during the holidays but i wouldnt buy it.
Mmmm this smells so good! It smells like lavender and herbs and it relaxes me when i apply it. It's very soothing on my face, does not feel oily and makes my skin really soft. I had it for a year now and I need to buy another one! It sucks that its kinda expensive but i believe its the best toner i ever used that doesnt irritate my skin

I always use lipbalm before bed and tried all the drugstores one but they end up making my lips dryer. This one is really moisturizing, smells like lip smackers and i think it will last me a really long time. I havent had any problems with the packaging so far
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Invigorating tea tree conditioner

I use this after the shampoo and i find it really conditionning without making my hair greasy. Its my favorite conditionner of the moment the only thing i don't like about it and i know its gonna sound very weird is that it kinda smells horsey... i don't know if its just me but as a horseback rider i cant help but be reminded of a stable when i use it. thankfully the shampoo's smell is much stronger and when i sniff my hair after it will be minty. but really, you should try it
Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Cleanse- Tea Tree Special Shampoo

I got this shampoo on sale for 25$CA with the conditionner. My friend who is a hairdresser told me that tea tree oil was really good for oily hair and it actually works! I don't use this shampoo every time, i alternate with shampure and fekkai and it's with this one that my hair stays soft and clean longer. I also really like the cold tingle on my scalp when i use it. But you must use the conditionner otherwise it will dry your hair
Really nice fall color. Easy to apply, glossy finish and lasting power. Plus, it's really flattering on me
I have been buying this mascara for like the past 3 years and it's really good over other mascara. I will coat my lashes in volumizing mascara and go over with this one to separate and add lenght. And i know it's bad but i actually like it better after around 3 months when it has thickened. The only thing is once I think i bought a bad one cause it was not working well but i threw it and bought another one that was normal. So for the price i really recommend it as a finishing touch
Ugh those are horrible! I bought them for going out thinking it was a great deal of two different options for the price of one but they are so cheap. The demi-lashes are too short to show up and the seam is too black. The long ones are too long, so soft its hard to place them properly and just fake looking. Was a complete waste of money cause i wont even use them. Going back with the MUFE or Quo ones.
Moisturizers -Origins - A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer

Hate this product. I used it for about a year because I was too lazy to find another one plus i paid a lot for it. I have really sensitive skin who peels thanks to my acne treatment but it still gets really oily. This moisturizer was too greasy ( like i had to blot my face everytime i used it) and did nothing for my dry spots. Plus i found it really irritating. When i applied it would just make my face shiny that's it. This weekend i finally bought an olay 10$ cream and wow what an amazing difference it made. I really don't recommend it and mine is going in the trash.
Moisturizers -Olay - Active Hydrating Cream - Original

I have really oily skin that is acne prone and I use a tretinoin treatment which leaves me flaking but without pimples, so i have really dry spots who get oily trough the day. Really weird. I was using an Origins moisturizer (the white tea one) but it was not helping at all it just made my skin greasy but still flaky while being irritating. As soon as i bought this one it tried it and it was like a miracle! Was not greasy, was really soothing and refreshing, made my skin soft and the flakes disappeared. I'm so relieved i bought it and for the price it's a steal. The only thing i didn't like at first was the smell but after a while i stopped noticing it. Anyways it kind of disappear after a certain time.
I just don't get why everybody says it's good. I bought it after reading a ton of good reviews on it and it was less expensive than other masks. I used it for like a year on and off and it never worked for me. Right after i used it my hair would always feel greasy no matter how much i rinsed, and left a residue on my hands when i would straighten my hair. The next time i washed my hair, the residue would be gone and it was like i never applied anything to my hair. The smell is okay but that's the only good thing i can say about it. Really confused. BTW i have a lot of fine hair (like my overall hair is full but each hair is fine) that gets greasy easily, is really soft and frizzes easily.
