Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Ok so this is my 3rd month of using this creme. The first 2 months it worked well for my skin. I break out soooo easily after creams but this creme worked really well for me and it was moisturizing, so I was very happy in the first 2 months. Right now is the 3rd month of using this and I can tell you that suddenly this creme started to breal me out like crazy! I have spots all over my face, I look like a teenager with zits all over my nose, forehead and cheeks. I mean, I had zits like this when I was 14! Also it doesn't provide my skin with any moisture anymore, so my skin feels very dry after an hour and dry patches show up. Actually this cream makes my skin dry, it's really strange but that's what it does. The main problem are the massive break outs and I mean massive. so for this reason I won't buy it ever again. It also feels very silicony on my face...so not a good creme.
I bought this moisturizer a few days ago because my regular creme broke me out (clinique moist surge). So after reading all the good reviews on here I deceided to give this Olay fluid a try. It's not expensive so I wouldn't cry over the price if I wouldn't like it. Anyway, I put it on in the evening and the next morning i woke up with a face red like fire!! It was burning, I had massive break outs on my neck and my cheeks. My face looked like it was burned with some chemical acid or something :S I don't know what they put in this fluid but one thing is for sure: never again! It took 3 days for the irritation to dissapear:S I looked like a freak and stayed at home for like 2 days because I was embaressed to go outside.

I like this mascara a lot! Its better then Diorshow definately!!! I might buy it again, I'm always on the search for a better mascara but this one is really nice. It gives me lenght and volume :) When it smudges during putting on its quite difficult to take it off, it stays on very well!

This creme broke me out after 3 days and it also smells of alcohol and contains silicones. So no sorry I didn't like this one. The only good thing is the smell.

Last week I bought the 7ml sample and so far this seems like a good creme! I have a very very acne prone skin and it brakes out from almost every creme (I tried almost every brand Chanel, Dior, clarins, Clinique, Lancome etc - it's probably the silicones in those cremes that make me brake out). With this one I didn't really have problems YET, maybe one or two small pimples on my cheek. My skin looks better, its more even (the colour and texture) and the blackheads on my nose are disappearing WOW haha I m happy about this!!! The huge pores on my cheeks smme to look a bit smaller as well. I've used this creme 8 times now (night and morning) and it is too heavy for me to use it during the day time because my skin in shining like a mirror so from now I will only use it during the night as long as the sample jar will last. I will write an update after a week if I have more break outs etc.
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum

Ok so i got this serum for Christmas and I was using it every day (not during the night though). It is now the 10th of February, so im using this stuff for 1.5 month now. The only thing I can say is WOW :D Before my lashes were dark brown, not very long and quit straight. Now they turned into BLACK lashes, they are definately longer and there are just more of them!! I really have the double amount of lashes , Im staring at them every day in the mirrow and I cant believe I have such a nice lashes. Since a week I started to use this serum at night as well for extra results ;) Oh and now i put it also on my EYEBROWS since a week and i already see they became a bit darker. i dont have big full eyebrows but I will have more hair in a few weeks :D I love this stuff!!! Buy it girls and use it for a few weeks before you will see the best results!!!
This stuff broke me out, I wont buy this again!!! I agree with the review below me, it has too much alcohol in it. Dont waste your money on this serum (I had the active serum).
I had high expectations after all those good reviews..Im so upset but I find this lotion too yellow on my skin, I look like an Asian person . I have a medium fair skin, not extremely pale but quite pale. But this has turned out YELLOW. not orange but yellow!! how is that possible?? Its not a brown colour at all Im so so sad :(
I had such high hopes for this serum because my skin has large pores since years and always here and there a spot. I never had nice skin so when I found out about this serum I couldn't wait to try it. The moment I opened the bottle the smell of the harsh alcohol made my eyes almost tear! OMG why do they put so much alcohol in this serum?? It's like you would put vodka on your skin. So after two days my skin became RED like hell, irritated especially my cheecks, chin and nose. My face looked like it was burned or something, it felt really thick and swollen :S Im so upset about it because now I have to search for another product again :(

This is such a lovely scent, my number one ever!!! If they would ever discount this, I would buy a huge stock that would last me for years ;) But of course I hope they never will discount it!! Anyway, I really recommend this perfume and it's not only me who thinks it smells great: strangers on the street asked me what perfume I have on. I remember a guy on the bus said to me: you smell very beautiful....and another guy who was a security guy at the airport asked: what's the name of your perfume because it smells great (maybe he wanted to by it for his gf;) ). Also people at my work often say: you always smell sooo beautiful!! So ladies, if you want to smell amazing, get this perfume!!! :)

I have very very curly hair and I bought this hair straightner after all the great reviews on folica.com. I used it for 1 month on and off and then it just stopped working!!! Its rubbish and I would never buy it again. It did make my hair straight quiet nicely but it just died...just like that....its not worth your money. I will hve to find another flat iron, I m not sure which one, maybe a chi....
