I'm so irritated with these brushes. Almost all of them shed, and the F30, F50, F05...(actually, all the black brushes) bleed like crazy. I've had these brushes for 2 years and they still bleed tonnes of black dye. My hands are stained from washing them right now. I'm going to throw all of the black brushes in the garbage. What a waste of money.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Galderma - Epiduo (aka Tactuo in Canada)

I've been using Tactuo for a coupe weeks and I'm having the same side-effects as when I was on Differin, even though this is suppose to be milder. As another reviewer mentioned, it can make your skin "itchy, red, sore and inflamed". I do not think this product is working for me.
Eyeliner -Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Stingray

I got a free full size version of stingray from Sephora using my points. The colour and texture of this pencil is nice but by the end of the day I look like a raccoon!
This sheer lip gloss is too sticky and I dislike the smell. It's pretty, but ultimately uncomfortable to wear.
I'm pretty sure this product is to blame for the massive breakout I am now dealing with. The cloths are abrasive, waxy, and made my skin burn a bit. I now have red inflamed bumps and white heads all over my face and chest.
Cleansers -Derma E - very clear problem skin cleanser

This cleanser burns my skin, especially the skin on my nose. It makes my skin feel dry and tight too.
Lotions/ Creams -Derma E - Cracked Skin Relief Creme
product_junkie6 11/5/2012 1:16:00 PM
I actually don't mind the smell, I use cloves to make chai tea so I'm use to it. I wish this was a bit more moisturizing, but it does help dull the pain of cracked skin.
Ok, I will admit that I probably have the wrong colour. My skin colour is a yellowish-tan and I bought the beige concealer. It makes my under eyes circles look grey. However, even if I had the right colour I probably wouldn't like this. The formula is hard to work with... it's too dry and tacky.
Lip Gloss -C.O. Bigelow - Organics Raspberry Jam Moisturizing Lip Shine
product_junkie6 9/21/2012 1:56:00 PM
I usually love C.O. Bigelow lip products, but this one is not a winner. This lip shine has a very runny consistency, and dries out my lips. The scent wears away quickly and leaves behind a chemical/plastic smell. Worst of all, it tastes HORRIBLE. I don't lick my lips, but I think the thin consistency makes it very easy for this product to get inside your mouth. It's revolting.
I have the Happy Booster "Glow & Mood Boosting 2-in-1 Bronzer & Blush" in Bronze/Natural. I am so mad at myself for buying this, because it doesn't show up on my skin at all. It's practically invisible! For reference, I'm a NC42 in mac. The smell is ok, nothing great. Total waste of money.
Skincare - Face -Ole Henriksen - Sheer Transformation Creme
product_junkie6 7/23/2012 3:13:00 PM
Terrible for acne-prone skin.
I tried a sample of this product. It's smelly, sticky, and broke me out. So happy I tried before I bought it...
This stuff smells terrible and doesn't work as well as other brush cleaners.
These did an ok job of removing my makeup, but I can't stand the smell. It's way to strong and makes my eyes burn a bit.
Candles -Pacifica - Pacifica SOY candles (various fragrances)
product_junkie6 5/11/2011 4:32:00 PM
I've gone through about 3 of their 3oz candles, and I'm not thrilled with them. I laughed when I read the label on the bottom of the glass that says "the best candles in the world". Not so! They have very little scent "throw" as others have mentioned. I also find that they do not burn well. I've trimmed the wick, not trimmed the wick etc. it doesn't make a difference. The wax drowns the wick to the point where there is little to no flame. Even pouring the excess wax off doesn't help.
