Cleansers -L'Oreal - Skin Genesis Pore Minimizing Gel Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]
cinderellie 3/12/2010 9:43:00 PM
I decided to stray from my HG because I can only find it at Target now, so I think it's being discontinued soon. Anyway, I decided to purchase this instead. This product was ok and pretty effective at removing my makeup, but I felt that it dried my oily face too much. My face would feel really tight shortly after washing it/before putting moisturizer on. Sometimes I would awake to find my face peeling in certain places. This is fragranced, and the smell is really nice, but I feel that the fragrance also irritated my skin a bit. This would give me little red bumps on my cheeks after using it. Overall, I will not be repurchasing this product. I saw no reduction in the size of my pores & it was too harsh.

i looooove this bodywash!! seriously, this is totally HG material. it smells delicious & is creamy, lathery, and makes my skin super soft. i use a loofah at home, but i can just use this on it's own when i shower at the gym, and it still does the job! i will keep buying this for the rest of my life :)
Treatments -Organix - Coconut Milk Split End Mender

i actually really like this. while the matching shampoo & conditioner didn't work out for me, this really has. i rediscovered it a few days ago in my hair products bin & have been using it ever since. it smells amazing! i wish the scent lingered, but it doesn't. :( i only use 2 pumps on my long, fine hair and it doesn't weigh it down, it just makes it soft.
Conditioner -Organix - Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner

this conditioner smells sooo good, but it isn't enough for my hair. combined with the shampoo, my hair felt like straw and was frizzy. i purchased it because of the scent & because it's organic, but i won't be repurchasing again.
i wanted to love this shampoo because of the way it smells and because it claims to be organic, but it just didn't do it for me. i have long, thin hair & this shampoo made it feel a little straw-like and frizzy. the scent doesn't linger, so that's also disappointing. overall, i won't be repurchasing.
this product isn't bad, but it's not that great. i feel that it doesn't exfoliate my face properly, nor clean it well. i can't use this "daily" as the name suggests because it starts to irritate & dry up my face, especially around my nose. i probably won't be purchasing this again once i finish the tube.
worst product ever, seriously. i used this once and almost finished the whole tube covering my entire legs. i left this on for 7 minutes & it didn't remove any of my leg hair. it smelled bad, stung, and made my legs really sensitive and painfully uncomfortable for 2 days. on top of that, i got a rashy chemical burn scab on my lower leg. i will never purchase this again & i wouldn't recommend it to anyone. it was a waste of my $7--if i could give it 0 lippies, i would!
this shampoo is ok. i gave it a 4 because it doesn't weight my hair down or make it greasy by the end of the day. it smells herbally, which is fine, but i just can't stand how this makes my hair suuper staticky. i won't be purchasing again, simply because my hair isn't color treated. i just wanted to try a sulfate free shampoo that volumized and this one fit the bill.
Treatments -Loma - Pearatin Fortifying Repairative Serum

this is my hg hair serum/heat protector/styling product! i bought the big bottle, and while expensive, it does last for a very long time because you only need so little. i have long, thin hair & this never weighs it down or makes it look greasy. i have the type of hair that has to be washed every day so i heat style every day & this serum has helped prevent breakage and split ends. i like to run it through towel dried hair before blow drying & then again on dry hair after straightening. i will definitely repurchase this!
I love this blush! i received it in a swap, but will definitely buy it once i run out (if i ever do). The glitter chunks are there when you open it, but once you swirl the brush in the blush and tap off the excess, they are gone & you are left with a beautiful flush of color!
this mascara is ok. i feel like it isn't consistant though. it either deposits way too much mascara onto my lashes, resulting in clumping...or too little, so it takes longer to achieve a thickening effect. overall, i won't be repurchasing. i prefer max factor's volume couture.
at first, i hated this mascara. the smell was horrendous! who, in their right mind, would make a mascara smell like nasty old roses? i don't know, but i used this once like 3 months ago and went to work. the smell bugged me soo much while i was at work, that i couldnt wait to get home to wash it off--it was THAT bad. the mascara's performance was mediocre. it didn't do much volumizing. so, i decided to use something else for a couple of months. i recently went back to this one when i ran out of what i was using, and to my surprise, the smell was almost all gone. now, when i wear it, i don't smell the "roses" at all. also, since i opened the mascara and let it sit for a couple of months, the formula thickened a bit & it actually volumizes my lashes now. i tend to use this over max factor's 2000 calorie mascara to de-clump what that mascara does and to add an extra coat. overall, i won't be repurchasing this.
Scrubs -Fresh - Sugar Face Polish with Strawberries

this is the BEST scrub i've ever used. it's perfect in every way. the smell is delicious, the texture is perfect, and the "residue" is extremely moisturizing--but doesn't clog my pores! i use this about once a week, and have been doing so for the past 2 months, and i still have more than half of the jar left. it is expensive, but it's worth it because the results are amazing and the product lasts for a long time.
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment

i wanted to love this eye cream & had high hopes because of the reviews on here...but it was just way too greasy and heavy for me. it felt like i was dragging it across my skin when i applied it, so i didnt like the idea of it giving me potential wrinkles and sagging from all the "massaging" i had to do. i prefer my eye creams to glide on and sink in a bit. this one just stayed on top of my skin and it was impossible to apply concealer over it because the concealer creased (even after setting it with powder). i used it for about 2 weeks, didnt notice any lightening at all, and finally gave up and returned it to sephora. i also think it gave me a pimple right under my eye...i've never had that happen before. overall, i wont be repurchasing this & i dont recommend it.
I really think this product made my hair worse than before I started using it. It seemed to dry it out & make it break more. I used a little more than half the bottle until I just poured the rest down the sink and recycled the bottle. I had high hopes for this.
