Brows -Hourglass - brow sculpting pencil in dark brunette
jaws 3/27/2013 11:11:00 PM
I have black/dark brown brows and I picked this product based on the color (dark brunette). It's very hard to find a brow color that is dark enough to match my brow color. Most of the "black" colors have a gray tinge and the "brown" colors are not dark enough to blend in with my natural color. This pencil does not have any gray and is dark. I used it once so far and like it. It is vegan and sulfate/phthalate/fragrance/synthetic dye free. It has a brush on one end and the twist pencil on the other end. The packaging is nice, the price is very expensive $32 at sephora. I would buy it again if I like it.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion For Face & Body, spf 60 PA+++
jaws 8/22/2011 7:01:00 AM
I live in Hawaii and rarely wear sunscreen on a daily basis due to the oiliness of my face and the discomfort I feel wearing sunscreen. This product is different. My skin feels smooth and not oily. It also seems to protect my skin and does not cause too many blackheads, so long as I remove it with cleansing cream. This is the best sunscreen I have ever used! Because of this product I wear sunscreen everyday. I also hate heavy smells but this product is a clean flowery scent which doesn't last long. The dispenser could be improved but if you place your finger below it, it seems to control the spillage. It is expensive but definitely worth it!
This mascara claims it's waterproof but it smudges, smears, and flakes. I won't buy it again.
This mask is able to decrease redness and help heal pimples. Moisturizes my skin without causing breakouts and without increasing oiliness. Would buy it again despite the price.
I am oily skinned and am prone to blackheads and breakouts. I have started to use this product and like it. I use at little of it and my skin stays moisturized. My breakouts and blackheads have not increased. I normally cannot use any moisturizers but for some reason my skin can tolerate this product. The price is expensive but worth it. Since I use a little the tube lasts a long time. I would definitely buy it again. Love Dr Hauschka skin care line!
I liked this mascara because it stayed on longer than other mascaras and did not flake too much. I have short straight asian lashes and very oily skin, I also wear RGP contacts so it is difficult to wear mascara which flakes. I like shu uemura mascara but this is cheaper.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

This product is great! I have oily skin and it normally takes me 3-4 sheets fully soaked to remove the oil from my face. My face feels nice and clean after using the blotters but this product is so expensive. I found this japanese brand which has the same type of rubberized feeling sheets but costs less and you get more sheets, so I switched to the japanese brand, and am happy with it! Also, I don't know why Johnson and Johnson? uses so much plastic to package their product. What a waste!
Eyes -BeneFit Cosmetics - She Laq ] [DISCONTINUED]
jaws 4/23/2008 8:08:00 AM
I have oily skin and whether a mascara is waterproof or not, it still smears on me. With the She Laq I can wear nonwaterproof masacara, and no raccoon eyes! The She Laq will burn your eyes if it comes in contact with them. The bottle can leak if not closed properly and can get stuck if some of the product sticks to the lip of the bottle. I would still buy it again because it works!
I received a sample of this product. I liked the smell. A lot of people said it was too abrasive but my sample was not abrasive at all. It lathered well but made my face feel a little tight after cleansing. I like that it comes in a glass bottle. I also like that it is a natural product. I probably would buy this cleanser again.
I ran out of my Laventine olive oil cleanser which I only use to remove my makeup. I decided to try Dr Hauschka's cleansing milk to remove my makeup since I already use the cleansing cream, clarifying toner, normalizing oil, clay mask, and facial toner. The cleansing milk left my skin feeling very oily but did remove my mascara and SheLaq on my eyelashes. It burned my eyes a little. I was able to remove the oily feeling by cleansing with the cream after makeup removal and following with my normal Dr Hauschka routine. The price was high, did what it was supposed to do, and I love the glass bottle but I don't know if I would buy this again for makeup removal.
Mascara -Shu Uemura - Mascara Basic [DISCONTINUED]
jaws 3/12/2008 2:00:00 AM
I like the brush and the staying power of this mascara. It does not flake and smear. It does not burn my contact wearing eyes. I have asian eyelashes and can see if someone already has thick long eyelashes they may not see a difference with this mascara. I have already repurchased this mascara and will continue to buy it. It is the best all around mascara for me!
I liked the price, the brush itself, the lengthening and thickening performance of the product, and how they placed the brush separate from the mascara. I did not like the smearing of the product after wearing it for only 2-3 hours. My face is very oily and I bought this because it is supposed to be a waterproof product which means it normally stays on a little longer for me. Too bad this product did not. I noticed it did tend to burn my eyes slightly as certain drug store mascaras do. I did not notice any flaking.
Misc Beauty Tools -Shu Uemura - New Improved Eyelash Curler
jaws 3/10/2008 11:11:00 PM
I don't know if I have the "new" curler but finally purchased the shu uemura eyelash curler and like it. It is a little difficult to fit my eye shape but curls my short, straight, asian eyelashes better than any other curler. I would buy this again. I'll see how long it lasts. I never knew an eyelash curler could make such a difference!
My oily and blackhead prone skin does well with this product. I rarely if ever have blackheads anymore. I have been using this product in conjuction with the cleansing cream and clarifying toner from Dr Hauschka for about 10 months. You have to be patient and wait a couple of months to see results. The bottle is glass and does leak a little if you travel with it. It is not cheap but it does work. Yes, I put oil on my oily skin only during the day and only as directed with other Dr Hauscka products. I can't get away from oily skin but I can get away from blackheads and breakouts.
Cleansers -La Vitton - Laventine - Olive Forte Cleansing Oil
jaws 7/9/2007 7:03:00 AM
I have been using this product on my oily blackhead skin for several months, I only use it to remove my makeup, which it does wonderfully. It even removes my waterproof makeup. I don't feel that it deeps cleans my skin like I need it to so I stick to my Dr Hauschka products for that task. I like that the product is organic but not that it comes in a plastic bottle.
