Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Velocity Lightweight Moisturizer

Overall Rating: 2 lippies :( Price: 1 lippie! Yay! Packaging: 5 lippies! Yay! I will NEVER buy this product again! When I was in high school Velocity was very popular. We all used it because it was the cool thing to do. That lasted for about two weeks. We all started breaking out and getting blackheads. We wised up and went back to whatever we were using before. This is a lightweight moisturizer, it smells nice. It really made my skin sting and it made my face super sticky. It might be ok for people with incredibly oily skin.
Overall Rating: 5 lippies! Yay! Price: It's a bit expensive, but I really like it, so I don't mind. Packaging: 5 lippies! Yay! I will re-purchase. It feels like I have nothing on when I wear it. It blends in well and really evens out my skin tone. I have red blotchy sensitive skin sometimes and this stuff covers it without making it look like I'm wearing makeup. This morning I had a HUGE zit just below my noes! It looked like I had herpes, and I had to get up and speak in front of several people. I used this and it completely covered it. It also didn't come off during the day with it a big plus for me! Try it if you haven't, it's really great.
Overall Rating: 5 lippies! Yay! Price: 5 lippies.... it's super expensive, especially for a cleanser, I love it though. Packaging: 4 lippies! Yay! I wish it came in a pump, or a cap, but you have to screw off the top, which is alright I guess. I will re-purchase. Ok, to make sure I liked this cleanser I go get samples. I go to all the department stores and get one just to make sure. The Chanel people were kind of rude to me, I must say. They looked at me as if I didn't deserve to have a sample, but whatever. I found a great person, he was really cool. He gave me a couple and told me to try it. This cleanser claims to keep de-pollute your face, I don't know about that... but I do know that I like the smell and it doesn't hurt my super sensitive skin. The texture is great! It starts out a little creamy and then you add a little water and it works into a rich lather. It makes my skin feel ultra clean, I really like it. I have dozens of other cleansers, but right now I'm obsessed with this one!
Treatments -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream
poodlelova14 6/27/2008 12:48:00 AM
Overall Rating: 5!!! Yay!!! :) Price: 2!!! Yay!!! Packaging: 5 Yay!!! Ok, I bought this one because it had retinol in it. So far it's really been working. I used it the first night and I woke up with clear pores. I had these little red bumps on my forhead and they were gone after I used it one time! It's great, I'm going to try the stronger version of this. I want to try the Intensive Anti-Wrinkle. I know I'm only 20, but it's always good to prevent, right?
Overall Rating: 2 lippies. Price: 5 lippies, Packaging: 1 lippie. I hated screwing the cap back on! It takes so much extra effort! LOL! I will not buy this again. I don't think Clarins knows the definition of "foaming" is. It doesn't really foam. I felt like I was washing my face with a lotion or something. It didn't feel like I was washing my face. It also left some kind of residu on my face. I'll give it one thing, it smells fantastic! And the smell lingers.
Overall Rating: 5 lippies! Yay! Price: 3 lippies. It's $27 for a 16.9 oz. It's lasted me a while Packaging: 5 lippies! I'm so buying this again! it's so cooling and refreshing after I wash my face! It's like heaven for my skin! And on a hot day, it doesn't get any better than this. It didn't hurt my skin when I put it on, which was suprising because usually toners do, but this one was just so cooling. I loved it and it's the only toner I will evet use.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Liquid Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Formula
poodlelova14 6/13/2008 7:57:00 PM
Overall Rating: 5 lippies! Yay! Price: 1 lippie! Yay! Packaging: 5 lippies! I like the pump! Yeah, I'll buy it again I guess... Well, I've been wanting to try this stuff for a while. I always see ads for it in Allure and all those other beauty mags. My great aunt uses Lancome, La Mer and other expensive brands to moisterize with but she only uses this to wash her face with. I usually pick up the Purpose cleanser when I'm going to buy a drugstore cleanser. I always go back to Purpose. but I decided to try this. It's very basic. It cleans my face and leaves me with that sqeaky clean feel. I think it's one of those cleansers you should try if you've never tried it. And you'd only be out $5 is you don't like it.
Overall Rating: 5 lippies! Yay! Price: 3 lippies! I put it in the middle, the price is great for what you get! Packaging: 5 lippies! The classic "Clinique green" tube is so hip! And yes! I will buy again. My problemo is that I have clogged pores on my nose that are kind of ugly. My baby sister thinks I have hair growing on my nose. I told you that to tell you this, my sunscreen was clogging my pores. I had gotten to the point where I didn't wear a sunscreen for a while. So I finally decided to go shopping for a new sunscreen, I went back to good ole Clinique. The lady gave me this and I loved it the first time I used it. It does have a slight tint to it, but I love it because it hides my clogged pores and it evens out my skin tone. It stays on ALL DAY! I kid you not, It looks like I just had a facial when I put it on. I could see where some people might think it was sticky or greasy, but it was fine for me. I'm planning on using it through the summer months as well. We had a very hot days this week, and I was affraid this stuff would drip, but it didn't, It soaked in great. So try it. Get a little sample of it at Sephora, if not maybe a Clinique lady will make you up a sample. Try it first though.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
poodlelova14 5/1/2008 4:05:00 PM
Clinique's DDML is one of those solids. It's like Barbie or Coca Cola, it's been around forever and it's going to stay around. You have to accept it for what it is. A bottle of this is sold every 7 minutes somewhere in the world. Thats pretty impressive. The lotion is VERY basic but it does the trick. It softens your skin and it's great as part of the 3 step system. It's been a standard in EVERYONE'S medicine cabinet at some point, well at least for those of us 18 and over! LOL! But you have to admit, if this stuff has been around for soooo long and is a staple in soooo many people's bathrooms, they're doing something right. It's still a nice little lotion and I'll probably keep buying it when I need to get my skin back into the groove and use the 3 step. It makes my skin soft. It just does, like a baby's bottom. It's great.
This stuff is gross! I wouldn't wish this product on anyone. It made my face oily and just sat on top of my skin, it never soaked in. Clogged my pores too. Good times, good times....
Treatments -L'Oreal - Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Mask
poodlelova14 4/22/2008 7:19:00 PM
I LOVE THIS!!! It's so awesome! It really helped me out. My hair has been SUPER dry. I found this at Marshall's actually! LOL! A discount store! I got it for like 7 bucks! I would have paid full price if I knew where to freaking get it! I'm going to have to do a little search when I run out of this. I use it all the time nd I've gotten so many compliments on how great my hair looks. My friends asked me what hair gel I was using because my hair was so shiny, I wasn't wearing any product in my hair, I had just usd this stuff! LOL!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Repairwear Day SPF 15 Cream
poodlelova14 2/26/2008 11:39:00 PM
I don't know why this moisterizer has gotten such bad reviews. It's wonderful! It has alot of anti-oxidants and great waterbinding agents! On top of it all it has an SPF! LOL!
I love it! Usually sunscreens break me out, but this one hasn't. It's highly concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way. When I first felt it I thought it might make skin stick or shiny, I was really suprised. And it's a reasonable price. So if you're looking for a good sunscreen, go for this! It's pretty awesome!
Cleansers -Beauticontrol - Skinlogics Gold Foaming Cleanser
poodlelova14 1/29/2008 12:47:00 PM
I really like this cleanser. I normally dislike foaming cleansers, but I really like this one. It doesn't dry out my skin at all and it feels really nice. I'm suprised Beauticontrol hasn't gotten more publicity. Their products are great!
FINALLY! I have found a toner that doesn't irritate my skin. It's a very light and delicate toner. It has a slight fragrance, but nothing that will bother you too much, I like the packaging. I like that I don't have to unscrew the top like most toners I've had. I also like the All Clear toner(also by Beauticontrol) I like a little alcohol in my toner, it makes me feel clean. But this is really good for the winter months.
