I had great expectations for this mask but it didn't do anything for me. Its basically a gel mask-not a scrub so dont be fooled even though it comes in the exfoliate kit. It promises to detoxify and exfoliate the skin but i felt no difference on my skin. Tried it for 2 weeks and immediately returned it for a refund.
This skin care line was recommended to me by another MUA'er shoegurl26, and boy am I glad she told me about it. I am a big fan of glycolics and have been searching for a cleanser that contains a good amount of it. This was the cleanser I've been looking for. Not only does it cleanse well, but it also have smoothened out the surface of my skin. I have combination skin and am prone to clogged pores and blackheads and this cleanser has helped decrease all that mess.
Highlighters -Prescriptives - Magic Illuminating Liquid Potion [DISCONTINUED]

I just started using this product and I absolutely love it. It makes my face look flawless without even wearing any foundation over it. Its light weight, oil free, and gives your skin a healthy glow. I think I may have stumbled upon yet another staple...
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

This is a great multi-purpose product. I like to think of it as how I think of vaseline-but better. I use this product as a lip condtioner, cuticle moisturizer, I also place it on some burns. You can pretty much use it for everything and its only 5 bucks a pop!
Moisturizers -Clearasil - Acne Fighting Moisturizer

I didnt really enjoy this moisturizer. I bought it because It contained 2% salicylic acid-where as most drugstore brands only contain .5%. After reading the ingredients, I noticed it contained mineral oil, I immediately stopped using it. How is this supposed to prevent acne when it contains mineral oil? YUKK!
Sunscreen -Coppertone - Oil Free SPF 45 Sunblock Lotion
complexionfreak 10/18/2004 4:28:00 AM
I went to hawaii recently and this was my sunblock of choice. Its great for many reason...#1 its oil free #2 high SPF of 45 and #3 it contains titanium and parsol.( double the protection) Most sunblocks only contain titanium. Not once did I burn no matter how long I basked in the sun.
This is a great liquid eyeliner, very comparable to department store brands. I like to use it in dark brown because its almost like black but not quite as harsh. It does last all day and doesnt smear much.
I love to eat chocolate so naturally I enjoy products that also smell like it too. This is one of my favorite CSP fragrances. I love the warm scent of vanilla combined with chololate. It smells so good that sometimes I wanna bite my arm off!
Loose Powders -T. LeClerc - Loose Powder in Banane
complexionfreak 10/17/2004 6:33:00 PM
I love this loose powder. So far it is the best oil blotting, shine diminishing powder I have ever tried. Its gives my skin an airbrushed look and keeps it matte longer than most podwers.Its also very light and is very comfortable to wear on the skin. The only thing I kinda dont like is the fragrance. It has some kind of baby powder scent to it that can sometines be overwhelming.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Overnight Therapy Replenishing Treatment
complexionfreak 10/9/2004 7:08:00 PM
This is an overall good leave in treatment. It doesnt neccesarily leave your hair feeling soft because its more of a protein treatment for your hair, it makes it feel more smooth. I like to spray it on my ends to help seal the cuticles.
I did not enjoy this scrub at all. The only thing I kinda liked about it was the scent but then again it wasnt that great either. This scrub is way too gentle. It felt like it doesnt really exfoliate, plus its so dry that you have to add water to create a paste before you can use it. I also did not like how it leaves a greasy film on your skin. I did not feel clean at all after using it. Two thumbs down!
I love amplified creme lipsticks from MAC. This is my favorite type of lipstick because its so creamy, it glides on smoothly and the color is soooo rich. You get so much color in one swipe.
This mascara is great. It made my puny lashes look long and lush. I think this may even be better than mt El magnascopic as far as building up lashes goes. The only downfall-it smudges. oh well cant win em all.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Creamy Coconut Body Lotion
complexionfreak 10/4/2004 5:04:00 AM
Im so bummed that they discontinued this scent. It smelled exactly how I imagined a coconut would smell like but better. Overall its a great body/hand cream, very thick and rich like all bath n body creams are.
Treatments -Matrix - Sleek.Look deep conditioning masque
complexionfreak 10/3/2004 10:45:00 PM
First off let me start by saying how much I love how this stuff smells. But aside from that, this is a great deep conditioner. My hair is very dry and stressed and this conditioner makes it feel smooth and healthy. I will be definately buying this again.
