Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation
fdoll 1/28/2008 8:32:00 PM
This left my face greasy by the afternoon. The texture is good and it blends fine, but the coverage does not last long and I am shining so bright by 1:00PM. The color is just ok. It just was not as great for me as I thought it would be. I would rather use a mineral foundation for more coverage without the shine.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash
fdoll 1/22/2008 7:42:00 PM
This is a good, basic and gentle face wash. It does not dry out my skin at all, but it also does not give that fresh, clean feeling that I like. Until I dry my face with a towel, it still feels like I have a residue there. The upside of that is that my face feels smoother throughout the day. There is a lot in the tube for a good price. UPDATE: I am adding a lippie due to the fact that this cleanser has actually improved my skin after using for a couple of weeks. It feels more smooth and bright. I love it!
Scrubs -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator
fdoll 12/26/2007 11:37:00 PM
This did not do too much for me, but it could be a good product for someone with dry skin, not combo to oily. It is a very gentle scrub, and it kind of feels like moisturizer more than a scrub; it caused a little breakout as well. Does leave face feeling soft after use.
Conditioner -The Body Shop - Honey moisturizing conditioner [DISCONTINUED]
fdoll 12/26/2007 11:29:00 PM
This is amazing! I have thick hair, and this really moisturized my hair and made it feel light and smooth. I have never found a conditioner that is able to moisturize this well while not weighing it down the least bit. It has really improved the look and feel of my hair.
Eye Makeup Remover -Avon - Moisture effective Eye makeup remover
fdoll 12/12/2007 10:06:00 PM
This is a very inexpensive, creamy eye makeup remover that works well, not amazing though. It takes a few attempts and you should definately use it before you wash your face because it is somewhat greasy. The area around my eyes feels soft and cool afterwards. Its a great product for the price, but the ideal would be Lancome or Mary Kay Eye Make Up Remover.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Light Reflecting Conditioner
fdoll 11/25/2007 8:55:00 PM
I bought the conditioner one week after I got the shampoo and I see a notable difference in my hair after one use. My hair is soft and manageable and not weighed down. My hair looks healthy and shines after using the shampoo and conditioner. I definately recommend!
I am pretty sure that this blush has lasted me 10 months! It is worth the cost because of how long it lasts. The color is soft and subtle and can easily be controlled. The color is perfect; I think it is soft rose. I recommend!!
Shampoo -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Moisturizing Shampoo
fdoll 11/17/2007 9:26:00 PM
This is a very moisturizing shampoo with a nice smell and good lather. My hair smells good after using it and it adds a nice shine. It doesnt weight my hair down at all which is great (especially for a moisturizing shampoo), but it does cut down on the volume somewhat. Overall great product for brunettes!
Cleansers -Ponds - Fresh Start Daily Exfoliating Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]
fdoll 11/14/2007 11:22:00 PM
This product works well to cleanse and freshen. I would not say that it improves the appearance of the skin, but it does a good job of cleansing. I actually like the smell, its very refreshing. The texture is also nice; exfoliating but not too rough.
Styling Products -Suave - Professionals Healthy Curls Mousse
fdoll 8/28/2007 8:27:00 PM
This is pretty good, although not by itself. I first used this after my on my damp hair, then scrunched it for a few seconds and let air dry. It made my hair slightly crunchy and not too much curl, just my natural wave. The next morning I used my usual Loreal curl gel, then followed up with the mousse and it did a great job of keeping my hair curly all day. I think I found a great pair of products to create natural looking, healthy curls.
Very inexpensive way to define your natural waves.curls. I scrunch this in when my hair is slightly damp. I notice it does not work as well when my hair is too wet. Great stuff.
Powder -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation
fdoll 6/14/2007 7:17:00 PM
This has amazing coverage and color match. It creates a flawless look for me. It is nice because you can't really mess up the application unless you don't blend it well. The packaging makes it somewhat difficult to use at first. I also wish the brush was softer, but the coverage and look makes up for it.
I've been using this shampoo for 5 days and so far so good. It leaves my hair soft and smells wonderful.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner
fdoll 6/2/2007 5:02:00 PM
I bought this based on the reviews, but this weighs down my hair a bit. The smell is great, but it does not really moisturize my thick hair. I would not repurchase.
I'm giving this five lippies because of what you get for the price. The pros: -feels very smooth going on, not oily at all -dries to a powder finish so no powder is really necessary -medium coverage and stays on most of the day, some reapplication may be necessary but better than some other expensive foundations out there -color is nice, not orange -packaging is good, just squeeze and go with no mess the con: -dries too quickly, so too avoid caking up just apply quickly...don't continue to rub it in after it has started to dry Will buy again!
