Fragrances -Pacifica - Tunisian Jasmine - spray perfume
kerroppi 4/15/2012 5:41:00 PM
Smells like a nice, soapy white floral. I love white florals so I don't mind. However, it doesn't really smell like authentic jasmine which is disappointing. Will continue to use, but will not repurchase. Also, the sillage is very lacking.
This was my trademark smell for high school and my freshman year of college. Brings back memories every time I smell it. It is very fresh, crisp, and welcoming. Not the best in terms of longevity, but that's ok since it's I love the smell so much. I also love that it's not a sweet smell, rather it's more of a crisp, fresh apple smell. I'm not a fan of overly sweet smells. I wish it was available more often at the store, but I always snatch it up when I see it.
Smells just like honeysuckles, just pure honeysuckle. I love the scent. However, it lasts a mere few minutes after application. I cannot really use this as a perfume. However, I do love just smelling it as a freshener or spray for the home. For that, I would repurchase.
Unfortunately, this was unimpressive. It volumized and was waterproof. However, it was heavy, which weighed down my curl and was very flaky. Also, turns clumpy if you use more than one layer. The wand is very big and hard to work with, especially for the inner corners. Will not be repurchasing.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Acne Free All-Day Acne Control Leave On Foam

This worked immediately on my acne. It kinda stings the first couple of days as your skin is getting used to the benzoyl peroxide. I experienced super dry skin, especially around the mouth area when I would talk and stretch the skin. However, for the purposes of acne, this produced results immediately. I've tried all the natural remedies out there and benzoyl peroxide is the only thing that helps with my acne. I like this formula better than the acne.org one since it's stronger and produces results faster. It is also a foam, which I like. So far, it has not bleached my clothes either which is the reason why I stopped using the acne.org one. I even put it on my old pajamas purposefully to see if it would bleach it. No bleaching so far. I use this in conjunction with the night leave on foam which I enjoy more. This regimen has stopped the formation of new cystic acne. All I have are the pesky little bumps that make your skin uneven. However, I feel that with time, these will decrease too. That was my experience in the past with bp. Definitely give it a shot. It is readily available and the best formulation of bp I've found so far...even better than proactive and panoxyl which is such a high strength that it will dry your skin out so much.
Lip Treatments -Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm spf 25

Love this product. It is very moisturizing and has a great amount of spf. I've been looking for something like this for a very long time. It's very hard to find something with high spf that doesn't taste like sunscreen or have a weird white caste. I bought lemon and chamomile. Mostly smell the lemon. The texture is like hard petroleum jelly so it has a nice amount of slip but not too much, hence why it lasts longer on my lips. I'm very happy with this find. It's a bit expensive and you don't get much. However, I like that it's travel friendly. Will use this as my main chapstick for now.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Thai Deodorant Crystal

Great deodorant that eliminates all body odor. I've been using natural deodorant for several years because I hated the residue of aluminum deodorants and the yellow staining that was left from them. I tried Tom's, which didn't work at all, and then Herbal Essences, and Arm and Hammer, which is the one I was using for a while. While Arm and Hammer is great and easy to find at stores, it still leaves some BO at the end of the day. Not anymore though. Now, with Thai deodorant, I don't smell anything, which is amazing. I have used both the roller ball stick and the spray. Both are equally effective. Though, with the spray mist, I get scared so I spray a lot just in case. Works much better than even Arm and Hammer. I got mine on drugstore.com; and just reached their buying limit to get free shipping. This ends my quest for natural deodorant.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Gunilla of Sweden - Lerosett Clay Mask

got this to combat a breakout I was experiencing. within 2 days saw results. I just used it like they mentioned and used a very thin layer, looked invisible even. That way, I hope this product will last longer since it's a bit pricey. Also works great as a spot treatment. Doesn't feel harsh, but I wake up in the morning with the pimple much smaller, and less itchy/raised. Will update if anything changes, but seems this may be a keeper. edit: after a while, the results did not continue and I still have the same amount of breakouts. Very shocked when I looked into the previous posts and noticed that the majority of them were people who only posted once. Obviously, these were fakes. This product works as a any clay product would. I am very unhappy with the dishonesty of this company and the lack of acne prevention.
I love the smell of this balm. It makes me feel so pretty in a vintage, Victorian way. Smells more like rose than lavender, but a more muted rose. Works really well as a moisturizer. Very convenient to carry around as well, compared to bottles of oil. When I use it, this balm isn't as greasy as I would have thought. It dries almost to a powdery feel on me. I feel it absorbs much faster than the other balms. This is my favorite and I have used this, sleep balm, and baby balm from Badger. Will def. buy again just for the smell.
This product doesn't make me fall asleep, but when I use it, I tend to remember my dreams, which I don't otherwise. I used it on my temples and it was a bit greasy and made me break out a little. Under my nose, it is fine. Could use more lavender oil in it in my opinion. I just put a couple of drops of lavender oil on top of it, and it seems to work better that way. Not so moisturizing as a hand moisturizer though. I will repurchase because it does make me calmer before sleep.
very nice, professional, work-appropriate color. good coverage. takes three coats, a little watery. will repurchase. great find for such a great price.
Great oil for my face. Has definitely helped with my acne. Before this, I used sesame oil but it the oil was dryer and didn't help clear acne. AKO is thinner, but more nourishing. Thus, I was surprised when it actually helped with my acne. I put 1-2 drops of this on my damp face after washing and start under the eyes, then massage it throughout my face. Great stuff. will repurchase. Only facial moisturizer I use. Has helped with my oily skin...now I produce less oil. edit: after a couple of months, I've noticed that this has resulted in consistent blemishes on the areas that I put it. I've started only putting it under my eyes, but have noticed that sometimes I develop blemishes on my upper cheeks, where the oil must have touched. Such a pity, as this is a very nice and nourishing oil that moisturizes well and doesn't make my face seem like an oil slick. However, I will not be using this for my face anymore, maybe body.
Really does look like skin when applied. I was rather thrilled the first time I tried this as the finish was so natural and perfect for the coming summer months. Unfortunately, it broke me out so no repurchase.
BB Cream -Skinfood - Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF20 PA+ (Shade 02)
kerroppi 4/23/2011 10:01:00 PM
Sheer coverage. Did help with the overall tone of my face, but that was pretty much it. Did not last that long on my face either. I really liked the smell and spf factor, but that's pretty much it. Will not repurchase. The Missha Perfect Cover BB cream provides better coverage, even though it feels thicker on my skin.
Great multi-use product. I use it for oil pulling, which detoxes my body. I also use it instead of body lotion for my body and it isn't as oily and dries much quicker than olive oil which is good since I hate how oil can make your clothes stain. The best use for this is as a facial moisturizer. My skin immediately had less acne and was much smoother too! I sometimes heat up the oil (be care, not too hot...just warm) and put more than usual on my face and massage it...then let it stand for fifteen minutes and wipe off with a towel. Great way for the oil to pull out all the gunk in my face and also nice facial massage....never got acne bumps from this and I have very sensitive skin that reacts to everything, even jojoba oil! Def. try this...just bought the plain brand at whole foods.
