I am very impressed with this product. This was my second time using it and not once has it failed me. The very first time I tryed it was when I dyed my hair a very dark black!! (Stupid of me) it removed the horrible black out of my hair and turned it into a light brown. I recently dyed my hair with a really dark brown and disliked it...so I wanted to go about one shade lighter. I purchased colorfix from sallys beauty supplies. It comes in a small kit with 3 products. this is what I did: I mixed the bottles "step 1" and "step 2" together in small cup and stirred them for about one minute. Then I placed it all over my hair and left it on for only 15 minutes since I only wanted to go like one shade lighter. I covered my hair with a plastic bag since heat helps the product work best. Please keep in mind that you should check for color change every 5 mins or so. I first tried it on a small strand of hair. It works really quickly!! 15 mins worked great for me. ONE IMPORTANT THING IS TO NOT USE "STEP 3" WHICH IS THE "PROCESSING LOTION" THIS STEP WILL MAKE YOUR HAIR DARK!!!! But anyways! My results are great!! I was left with a really light brown. No damage to my hair whats so ever!! Though I did notice less shine!!! Or maybe that was just me. But since my hair was left with an even light brown I was able to dye over it with a more caramel brown!!! which looks very pretty and gave me my shiny hair back! I'm so satisfied with my hair now. Just to make sure my hair wasn't damaged or anything from all my previous dying I used my macadamia oil!! ^_^ soft, shiny beautiful results!!
Omg!!!!! This stuff feels extremely hydrating!! I'm a person who has very dry skin. Its so dry sometimes it stings. Specially around my eye area. I just bought this and I couldn't wait to write about my first impression. It lathers up a bit and its very creamy. It feels like a very moisturizing lotion. My face feels so soft. I didn't even feel the need to apply lotion which is silly because I seriously can't live without moisturizing my face! Ill keep using it to see if any of my small breakouts reduce. But this is def for a person with really dry skin. :)
I'm in love!!!!!!!! I have finally found what I've been looking for all these years! I've tried so so many concealers. High end and drugstore! I've never liked any of the ones I own until now! I love this concealer! It covers my extremely dark brown under eye circles! It goes on extremely smooth! It looks natural!!! I swear I have never used anything that looked as natural as this! You cant tell you're wearing any concealer. I bought the medium shade and was afraid to try it at first because it seemed too dark for my olive, tanish skin tone. I'm glad I gave it a shot!! The medium shade has a salmoni, pinkish undertone. I always thought yellow undertones worked best for my under eyes but this pinkish color works amazing!!!! I will repurchase and repurchase!! :D YAAAAAY!
This was my very first concealer I ever tried!! I've been using it for almost 3 years now. Let me start off by saying that I have really like really dark under eye circles! Their very very brown! My skin tone is a medium olive color and my circles are very dark brown. I'm using the shade light/medium tho I only use the medium shade. Its super smooth and creamy! You can layer and layer and it never looks bad. Its very easy to work with but can look caky if you don't use enough moisture before applying, like any other concealer. I'd say coverage is descent. For me, it doesn't cover my circles completely but it gives me a natural look. Wish it lasted longer than just a few hours and wish it had a little more coverage. Its still my everyday reach for concealer sense none of the other ones look as natural.
Palettes -Sonia Kashuk - Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette

I had high hopes towards this concealer palette. I couldn't wait to buy it. A lot of people rave so much about it. I had to give it a try. I have horrible dark under eye circles and I'm pretty anxious to try out every concealer out there! I think I have tried atleast half of all the concealers in the world!! My wallet hates me. Lol but anyways, this concealer didn't do the job for me. None of the colors work well for me. I hate the sticky feeling it has. A bit hard to work with. I've used both my fingers and concealer brushes. I hate that it settles into lines and coverage isnt too great. Blah. I will not repurchase.
Hair Removal -eos - Shave Cream Ultra Moisturizing Pomegranate Raspberry

I was tired of using the skinmate shaving creams. They never did much for my skin or little razor bumps. I came across this eos shaving cream the other day and it caught my eye! The packaging is so cute! I'm a sucker for cute packaging! Lol its so affordable, around $3 so I had to buy it and my first impression was that it felt watery on my skin and didn't foam much but it felt extremely smooth while shaving. The razor glides so smoothly. After shaving my legs feels nice and soft. It also claims to help prevent razor bumps and I can already see mine slowly disappear. I love it!! It smells so good also. And I still can't get over the pretty packaging!
Ok, so I don't suffer from acne. I never had trouble with pimples. I occasionally get like 1 or 2 little ones here and there but it never bothers me. They go away within a few days on their own. Surprisingly a few weeks ago I noticed I had a lot of tiny flesh colored bumps all over my forehead that you could notice right away! They looked pretty gross. I freaked out and right away researched different acne products. It seemed like a lot of people liked this one so I decided to give it a try. I've been using it for almost 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it!!!! It got rid of my tiny nasty bumps within like 3 days or 2! Its gently on my skin, doesn't feel rough, doesn't leave a dry feeling afterwards and it smells really nice. My face feels really clean after using it. I use it almost everyday in the shower. My face feels and looks healthy.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35
mayabarbie 12/14/2011 12:23:00 AM
Ok, so I was very excited to try this product out. I loved it for like the first 2 weeks. It absorbed quicky, didn't look greasy or oily on my face, but didn't feel as moisturizing like I expected. I kept using it anyways only to find out that it was drying my skin like crazy! Specially around my eye area. It gave me a super tight feeling that I couldn't handle throughout the day. So dissappointing. Only thing I like about it is that it woks amazing with makeup. My concealer stayed on the whole day and didn't smudge like with other moisturizers I've used. I will not use this ever again.
Concealers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector SPF 25 in Fair 05
mayabarbie 11/13/2011 5:02:00 PM
After trying out many many concealers for my under eye circles I always seem to come back to this one. Before I use this product I make sure I moisturize really well underneath my eye, for moisture I use my neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer spf 30, then I apply a duo concealer, I'm using sheercorver, light/medium (I feel like it works a lot better if I apply a duo concealer first, though you can skip this step.) and lastly I apply my brightening eye perfector, buff 09. It gives my under eye circles a natural brightening look. Its very creamy and light, it doesnt feel heavy or dry. I only use a bit of it, it does the job for me. And even though it does tend to settle into fine lines, its not so big of a problem. I've had worst concealers that settled into my fine lines like crazy! Make sure to moisturize really well or else it will crack up a bit. I only retouch once throughout the day. So retouching is not so big of a hassle. It has a lot of product! It lasts for about 2 months or more so the price is def worth it. I got it from walmart for about $8. It used to be worth $15+ so I'm glad the price went down. I'm still in search for the "perfect concealer or eye brightner" for my horrible under eye circles, but this is close to perfect for now. :)
I would only use this product once every few weeks on my tummy and legs but stopped emmediately after I noticed white spots all over my tummy area and a few on my legs. I haven't used it ever since and its been like 5 months now and I still have these white spots. Just a few days ago I went to the dermatologist to get my skin checked out and turns out I have a skin condition called "tenia versicolor" I will have to deal with this for the rest of my life thanks to nair! This product can go to hell.
