Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
hippihanna 1/17/2013 5:44:00 AM
I've bought this mascara 3 times in a row now and I must say that it is one of the best mascaras that I have ever used. The brush is not massively huge like many others but surprisingly it coats each lash very well, separates, lengthens and volumises my lashes like no other. The fact that it doesn't smudge, clump and make my lashes stick together is key for me.. With this mascara I get all the volume that I need but my lashes still look neat and somewhat natural as apposed to the clumpy, sticky mess that most mascaras make. another plus with this mascara is that it's nicely buildable, it dries fast so you can apply coat after coat till you get the look that you desire. Like how other reviewers have said already..The only downside to this mascara is that the tube dries dries out quite quickly, it becomes expensive to use continuously for this reason otherwise it would be 10/10. Still my favorite at the moment and I have tried almost everything. I will continue to repurchase for these reasons.
I like to use gentle sulphate free shampoo on my hair so when i saw this i thought id give it a try. The shampoo is just okay, i cant really Rave about it but i cant sayanything too bad also.. It does what it supposed to.. Lathers, cleans my hair but it is not the gentlest of sulphatefree shampoos out there. I prefer kevin murphy and lanza so i wont be purchasing this again.

I thought it was just me who thought this was rubbish but after seeing what a low rating this product has It just confirms how crap it is. The thing is, I'd been using this for a while and I thought my hair was just dry and crunchy because it was just damaged, I just never realized that it was this product making my hair feel that way. Well, I hated the way my hair felt and I chopped off all my hair thinking that it was hopelessly damaged and have been growing it out again. I haven't heat styled my hair in 7 months and It has just grown enough to start heat styling it again. My hair is very healthy with 0 dry ends nor split ends. This morning I decided to flat iron my hair, I took out my CHI iron and used this product as I still had some left in my cabinet and guess what? that dry crunchy lackluster hair is back again! NOW I know what a hopeless heat protector this is because I know for sure now that there is no damage in my hair and it's just this crap that makes it appear so! DON'T PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!! IT IS BAD! There is one reviewer down below whom goes by the name of Devmar who claims that we bought our product outside of a salon and it's counterfeit as too why it's so bad. She also goes on to say that we don't know to use it properly and thus the reason for it not being favorable amongst most reviewers here. (gosh, like we just crawled out from a cave like monkeys with dreadlocks on our hair and just started spraying stuff on it in the hope to make it silky?!) Well I can say that I purchased mine from a reputable salon for 15Euros and I am very experienced when it comes to hair products.. and I can still say that It is nothing but the crappiest heat protector that I have ever used and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I love this cleanser. I love the texture and how it lathers. Only a small bit is needed to get a good clean. Whats lovely about it too is that it doesnt over clean and leave you with that stripped, tight feeling that most foaming cleansers leave behind. I cant say a bad thing about this product and and i would reccomend it to everybody to at least give it try.
I tried a sample of this and its amazing.. My hair feels so soft and smooth. Its very thick but Wont weigh hair down, it just moisturises, nourishes and detangles very well. I definetly will purchase a full size tub.
The best shampoo ever created. So thick and luxurious. Smells great. Washes thorough enough without sttipping the hair, it actually leaves hair feeling really moisturised and clean that you might not feel the need to use a conditioner afterwards. I just love everthing about it, my hair feels like its being pampered when i use this.
I am actually stunned to see that this mascara doesn't have 100% 5/5 ratings. I love this mascara. I have longish lashes but I just love to have thick, bold and dramatic lashes. That being said, alot of mascaras that claim to add volume and length to lashes actually just create a real mess, I hate that. This mascara here delivers... separates the lashes, defines them, leaves my lashes thick, long and very dark. I would compare it too the dior show blackout. I probably will purchase again Edit: i was about to repurchase only to discover the 'shocking' version of this... Wow i have found my dream mascara!
Cleansers -Dermalogica - Age Smart Skin Resurfacing Cleanser
hippihanna 1/15/2012 4:35:00 PM
Ive been using this cleanser for a few days now and am absolutely hating what it is doing to my skin. I have always thought my skin was as tough as leather and could withstand almost anything.. I mean i roast myself in the sun and never experience sunburn ever. sometimes i even wash my face with baking soda almost everyday of the week and have never had any bad reaction! so i really wasn't expecting this product to start peeling my face off... It's literally peeling my skin off! Its really strange because its quite a soft creamy/milky texture i'd expect something like this from a scrub or some foaming cleanser, but there's no foam and no hard particles in it. Since using this facewash my face feels tight and thirsty, i can see those wrinkles from dryness forming around my nose with dry, hard flakes and cracks forming around them. My skin has been really clear for a while but as soon as i started using this ive had massive zits forming on my forehead, cheek and chin. Ive been using this once a day to start out with but i think ill have to use it less often now, which means that I cant use this as a face wash but more of an exfoliation, peeling treatment of some sort. Im not looking foward to using it that way as i already have enough really good exfoliators that i currently use and i wasnt planning to add another to my collection. I really was looking for an everyday cleanser when i purchased this. I still give it 2 lippies because there is the possibility that my skin is just adjusting to a new product as it normally does and it might just get used to it and i might end up liking it. So you will hear from me if there is any change. UPDATE 15.02.2012: Ive been using this face wash for over a month now and I have been using it every second or third day/ in the mornings... I cant use it anymore than that because my skin will go just go crazy with zits, dryness and tightness. I have really oily skin and even with using it less often, my skin has not adjusted to it and I still hate it! Even when I follow with a really heavy moisturizer I still have dry patches everywhere and my skin is still painfully peeling in some areas.. It looks like I have scales when I put on my make up. In the areas where my skin has peeled off Im left with dark pigmentation marks :( that are really difficult and costly to cover up and find treatment to fade them. i originally gave this 2 lippies but now have only rated it with 1!. Im not using it anymore and wish I had never purchased it.
Nice shampoo. Moisturising but still cleans very thorough. great for women with thick, coarse and dryish hair. I actually like this one more than the all soft shampoo, i cant tell you why exactly but my hair just responds better to this one. It Doesnt cause tangles as its very gentle despite giving a very good lather. you only need a small bit of shampoo. I will continue to purchase this shampoo, ive tried many of redkens other shampoos but this one seems to suite me best. Every other week i use a clarifying shampoo, i think this is very important to do so when using moisturising products continuously on hair to maintain their effectiveness and to ensure your hair and scalp are not getting suffocated with build up.
This is a really good serum, i have been using it for a few weeks now and my skin has been really smooth, soft and glowing. I know it's meant for more mature women but i was looking for a serum that was a bit more moisturising than your traditional serum as it's winter now and my face was begging me for some extra moisture. I dont want to get into much detail about the ingredients but I will say that it has been good to use in the winter to keep my face from drying out. I use it under my dr.haushka regenerating cream during the day and sometimes with the rose cream at night. I do find that its a bit oily but its okay because it does absorb reasonably well after a few minutes. I let it absorb into my skin for a bit before applying my moisturiser and make up. A make up primer helps take the oil/shine away before applying foundation on. This doesnt clogg my pores or cause me to breakout which is really important for me as i can flare up in zits pretty easily. At night, with the rose cream on top of this, my face is an oil slick but i really dont care as i dont feel embarrassed in front of my husband or kids.. I look fab every other time so stuff it. In the morning my skin is as soft as a babies bottom. I like it but i still have to test it in summer before giving it a 5.
This is a fantastic shampoo. It actually really surprised me to find out how good this shampoo actually is. I randomly picked this up as it was on sale and I picked this one specifically for my husband and son, who have fine, shoulder length wavy hair and needed a shampoo of their own. This shampoo made their hair shiney, silky, glossy, light and bouncy, without the need to use conditioner after. It is quite moisturizing, lathers very well but doesn't weigh hair down or leave residues on the hair. It doesn't leave hair tangled either. My hair is very thick and short so I dont use it as I prefer smoothing and very, very moisturizing shampoos to get my hair to lay down and behave. However when my hair grows out and I decide to wear my natural texture then I will also use this shampoo. I think it would also be good to use if you decide to flat iron your hair as it really gives a good texture to the hair. It really is a fantastic shampoo which I will by again at some point just at the moment my bathroom cabinet is packed with all sorts of shampoos that i'd like to use up before making a new purchase.
This is a really good condiotioner. Its really thick, rich and creamy and Works really well at hydrating and softening the hair. I cant even say anymore or anything negative about this, it is superb and a favourite of mine.

I dont notice any change in my hair when i use this, like absolutely 0! No shine, no detangling or anything. Its like im spraying water into my hair. I like the aphogee 2 step protein treatment, i find that to be a superb product although I find this product to be ineffective at doing anything for my hair.
Styling Products -Redken - Smooth Down Sleek Obedience Anti-Frizz Serum

I first started using using this on my dry hair to lay down some fly-aways but i've recently started using it on my hair while its still damp and now i like it. It sure did take me while to figure out how to use it. My hair poofs up after drying. I dont heat style and i dont use gel, avoid hairspray and avoid hairstyling waxes and mouses because they normal require shampooing before i can work on my hair again. it is quite tough to get my poofy hair to lie flat and tamed. This product really helps! Without the stiffness of gels and waxes, it just makes my hair feel smooth, very shiny and tame. You have to warm and melt it in your hands before putting it into your hair. I use it after my leave in condiotner and i dont apply anything else in my hair.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum
hippihanna 12/30/2011 11:08:00 AM
I rated this only 3. I would give it 3.5 but theres no option for that and 4 would be too generous so i think 3 is fair. It's a very nice serum. One of the best serums but certainly not the best. If you like to use serums n your hair then this is a product worth trying. It comes in a huge bottle that lasts forever and smells superb. I like it but Im not crazy about it! Ijust prefer some other products like argan oil, chi silk infusion, Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Oil, kerastase aloe relax and Kérastase Elixir Ultime. If those products never existed and i seriously had no other choice then i would by this again but at the moment... This doesnt make it to the top of my list of leave in products so i wont be buying again.
