I actually "stole" this from my husband when we were on vacation and I had ofcourse forgotten my venus razor. So I decided to use this expecting it to be too rough for my skin. However, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that it actually did a much better and faster job at shaving my legs. Plus, I never got one nick or ingrown hair. It also has a pivoting head just like venus to fit ur curves. I feel that this actually does not get blunt easily unlike the venus which needed replacing (for me atleast) every three weeks or so (with everyday shaving in the summer...sorry if TMI). So yeah, I will be "repurchasing".

I have this in broadway bronze and it gives me that awesome bronze-y reddish glaze on my lips. It is not obnoxious or sticky and almost replaces my Revlon superlustrous "raizin glaze" which was discontinued.
I am not a morning person and spend a max of 7 mins in the morning to do my makeup. This quad embodies my eyemakeup routine in one small compact. I usually put black eyeliner on my lids and smudge it out with the charcoal or the plum color in this quad and use the bronzy color as my brow bone highlight. i dont do a full-on eyelook in the morning since i am pretty lazy and this makes me look polished and makes my eyes look a little sexy/smoky also. This technique might not work for lighter complexions since this quad has dark pigmented shades.

I really think St-Ives lotions are underated. I have been using these lotions for the past 5-6 yrs. I originally bought these since they were on sale for 2.99 CAD. I have grown to love these and will continue to repurchase them. They are also easily found on sale at Pharmaprix. The size is quite reasonable for the price and come in a variety of scents. My favs are the coconut one and the mineral one.
AMAZING....just amazing. Smells expensive, sexy, erotic and lady-like all at the same time. I said I would not repurchase since wearing this every day makes me tired of it unlike my lolita lempicka that I never get tired of. Oh...and DO NOT OVERDOSE.

I like it. I bought it based entirely on the reviews and I have to say i do like it. Its nothing earth shattering but if I ever run out of my 50-smth bottle of other perfumes, I might use it up. For now, I just use it when I feel like using smth different from my lolita, samsara, opium and other expensive favorites. Oh and I found it for $20 at SDM. It is longlasting and if you overdose, you might get a headache. Update: I completely agree with the reviwer that said it smells like a stranger. It does not seem to mingle with my body chemistry like opium, angel, lolita or givenchy VI
I have been using the white beauty bar for years (I detest the scent of the others) and works well. I normally use these during the winter tho since in the summer, I use olay to get rid of the sticky feeling (its humid where I live). These are also ok for the face since there are not too many irritating ingreidents. I also use them to shave my legs and gets my skin smooth. But, I absolutely hate the dove bodywashes, they have me very bad breakouts where I nromally even dont breakout...ON MY ARMS!!! I will never use those again. Bar soap all the way for me.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Valeo Pharma Sulfur soap 10%

This is the only product that has gotten rid of my cystic under-skin painful bumps. I normally lather and rinse, lather and leave on as a mask till dry and rinse aagin. Makes my skin dry but thats good since I have oily skin. I used to buy it from Zellers (Montreal) but they dont restock anymore since they are closing their business. I am hoping to contact valeopharma to see where else they sell their products since I am running out and cannot seem to find it in any others stores. If anyone knows, please contact me.
This is not a bad lipgloss by any means but this particular shade does not suit me. But, I completely agree that it is my fault, hence the 4 rating. If I do want to wear it, I apply a very sheer layer. I have yet to try it out with a lipliner but that might take a while since I do not use lipliners (i feel it ages) I do love other lipglosses in this line: nude lustre, coral (?), raizin, etc

I cannot believe I have'nt written a review for this amazing lipgloss. Its a nice peachy pinky tan shade on my NC50 pigmented lips. Only lipgloss I can wear without feeling tacky. I do not like drawing attention to my lips when I am at work so this is perfect for that. It is moisturizing and I do not mind the smell. I bought this one before it was all hypoed over on YT and the blogosphere and still in love with it. One of the items I will repurchase over and over again.
I bought this soap for nostalgi purposes at walmart. I remember my gramma bathing me in this when I was a toddler...anwyays, back to the future. This is not a bad soap by any means and I would only use it in the summer since it maybe too dry for me in the winter.
I am happy this product is working for so many of you but unfortunately, this breaks me out. I was really looking for a good blot powder to replace by MAC blot but this irritated my skin and broke me out :(

Very nice product with neutral colors (for my shade nc50). Can do a very easy eue with this for work or play.
Not a bad product by any means but the pigmentation is lacking. I can see this being good for someone lighter than myself (nc50). But for me, I need smth more pigmented like the essence liquid liner.

I feel bad givign this product a bad rating since the owners seem like honest and hardworking people. I am dark skinned with golden undertones and did not seemed to find a match but at the time really wanted to get away from commercial foundations and decided to switch. I got an OK match in MAU (i think) and ordered the full size. It looked ok but made my face really itchy. I do not know which ingredient is the culprit since it has no bismuth.
