Bought and returned this product the same week. Took this with me for my vacation to Cozumel because it was something I needed quick and it was stable. This product balled up on me like crazy. I wasn't even wearing makeup and it even did the same on my hands. My sister was asking me what the white stuff in my eyebrows and around my hairline were. It was fine on the initial application but when reapplying, it's horrible.
Treatments -Zapzyt - 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel
jetta 1/23/2006 10:49:00 PM
I use this as a spot treatment. Applying it all over the face will definitely leave you with flaky, peeling skin. Even as a spot treatment, there will be some flakiness. This stuff is potent! TMI but I had a huge, painful, zit on the inside of my nose. I was applying Zapzyt to the head of a q-tip and applying to the zit inside of my nose that way. My skin was peeling on the top of my nose!!! I couldn't believe it! There was a small, circular area that I could see peeling right above the area where my zit was on the inside of my nose, LOL! This will definitely dry up blemishes. I would buy again!
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

Just repurchased this for the second time and will buy again. I have oily, acne-prone skin. The 2% BHA liquid helps keep my skin clear and smooth. It hasn't rid me of the blackheads on my nose but it is the only product that has diminished them in size. It also helps me keep those pesky forehead bumps at bay. If you want to try before you buy, email CS with your skintype and they will send you samples for free.
Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Natural Hold Hairspray
jetta 9/3/2005 2:04:00 PM
This hairspray definitely has natural hold. No crispyness or crunchyness for me. It could actually have a little more hold for me but the main reason I use it anyway is for the scent, which I love! I use it with the So Sexy conditioner and with a couple of spritzes of the hairspray, I can smell it in my hair all day. For those that have used VS Love Spell hairspray, this has less hold.
Conditioner -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Conditioner
jetta 9/3/2005 1:58:00 PM
I just love the smell of this conditioner! The scent stays and lasts in your hair and I can smell it all day. It smells similar to their Body by Victoria fragrance so that's the fragrance I wear it with. Since the scent stays in your hair, it can definitely clash with perfume or other lotions and as a result, this conditioner is not something I use everyday because I like to switch my fragrances around a lot. I have the formula for dry/damaged hair and it does a pretty good job of making my hair feel soft. I bought 6 bottles during their 3 for $21 sale and 3 hairsprays. The hairspray have the greatest hold, but the scent is stronger and lasts longer in my hair.
This is an awesome black nailpolish! One coat and your nails are black. I apply two coats anyway (just because) but you really only need one. It leaves good shine on its own but pair this with a clear topcoat and your nails will look super glossy black. The consistency of nailpolish is easy to use and apply too.
I have oily, acne-prone skin that is not sensitive. (I would not recommend this mask for people with sensitive skin). This mask doesn't work for me as a spot treatment unfortunately, but it does wonders for my huge pores. I love spackling the mask in when applying! Even after wearing the mask for 15 minutes, I can see a difference in the size of my pores and can feel the difference when rinsing the mask off. My face feels much smoother. Sometimes, I wear the mask overnight but the skin on my face will smell of sulfer the next day. The results are worth it though!
I've had this cake eyeliner for at least 2 years now and I don't think I will ever finish it! I use this eyeliner almost every day. It's cheap, easy, and quick to use. I don't like the tugging of pencils and I'm sloppy with liquid eyeliner. I have a little bottle that looks like a Visine bottle of sealant and I squeeze one drop from that, dip my cheapo eyeliner brush that I bought from Walgreen's into it and swirl around to pick up color. I like that I can control the instensity of the color and how it can look like I used a liquid liner if I want to be more dramatic/bold. I have oily eyelids and it doesn't smudge or transfer. Now that I've run out of the La Femme sealant, I do not notice any differece between that and using tap water.
This gives me the closest shave ever! It doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't make me itch aftwards, and no razor burn. It's a lotion consistency and I like it better than a foamy shaving cream because I don't have to keep rinsing my razor blades with water. The razor just glides against the skin and I can shave much more quickly. I use Key Lime, which smells good but the scent doesn't last and I don't even smell it in the shower but I don't care about the scent so much. I am just so happy with the close shave I am able to achieve with this product!
I have very oily skin that is also acne-prone. This product controls oil/shine well and didn't break me out. I use this when I am in a hurry and literally need something to slap on my face and go. This stuff is great for that because the application is so easy. I love the sponge the compact comes with! I've only applied it dry and it gives me pretty good coverage. I wear Buff and am usually the second lightest color in foundation shades and have yellow undertones. I'd buy this again.
Scrubs -Avon - Clearskin Cleansing Scrub Exfoliant [DISCONTINUED]
jetta 12/2/2004 8:25:00 AM
I was tired of wimpy facial scrubs with microbeads that don't do anything. I bought this on a whim and it's great! I just repurchased a lot of four on ebay! This scrub is like a paste and doesn't foam but I mix it with a little J&J Head to Toe for some added foam just so it can go on smoother. I have oily, acne-prone skin and I can really tell a difference after washing my face with this. My face will feel sooooo much smoother! It also leaves your face with a refresing cool/cold feeling for just a little bit which is nice. It comes in a tube and my only gripe is that I wish the top was a flip-top instead of the ones you screw on. I keep a tube in the shower and by the sink and use about every other day.
I have super oily skin that is also acne-prone. I work 12 hour shifts and this stuff lasts without breaking down or fading. At the end of the shift, my face won't be an oil slick but look slightly dewy and nice. The coverage is amazing! Covers my old acne scars pretty well. Obviously, this isn't for someone who has dry or flaky skin, hence the word "matte" in the product name for those with oily skin. I have some flakies on the sides of my nose and they are made more noticeable with the foundation. I wear Light #4 and it's a perfect match for my skin with yellow undertones. I wear MAC C25, Illuminare Florentine Fair, and I'm blanking on the other shades right now. I just apply with my fingers and I will repurchase again.
I love this stuff! I have *very* black eyebrows that are thick and dark but are sparse in some areas. The dark brown shade is perfect! I was worried that it would look fake and unnatural but it doesn't! The color lasts and it's so easy to apply.
I have very oily, acne-prone skin and I also wear a lot of makeup that is waterproof. It is really hard for me to find a cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin, removes all my makeup, and doesn't break me out. This cleanser does all that! I've repurchased 4 times already and will continue to buy it again. It feels a little weird cleansing without water but it's way better than having soapy suds running down both my arms and I got used to it. In the summer, if my skin feels too moisturized, I will double cleanse with J&J Head to Toe afterwards.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss- Cherries in the Glow [DISCONTINUED]
jetta 4/28/2004 9:18:00 AM
This lipgloss is great! The color looks really dark in the tube but actually looks a lot lighter on the lips. On me, it's a MLBB and is just slightly redder than the inside lining of my mouth. My lips look really shiny and glossy and the lines on my lips disappear. There is a little bit of a scent but it's hardly noticeable and I think it smells nice. I would definitely buy this shade again and am looking forward to trying the other shades.
