Sunscreen -Shiseido - Very High Sun Protection Cream SPF 50
redkitten 11/30/2012 1:17:00 PM
I bought this product with high hopes after reading reviews here for the ultimate sun cream 50+ and how good it was for people with acne prone skin so I decided to buy it.Huge mistake!!! The texture is really thick,the smells is chemical and bad and also very expensive.It was way too difficult to blend ,very sticky and very strange.At beginning the finish was matte but before to finish my MUA my t-zone looks like an oil slick,and few minutes later my entire face was very greasy-sticky.I tried varying the amount applied but the results are always the same...sticky and shiny face all day long. The finish is horrible with very strong white cast and with foundation/powder on top looks like i have clay on my face. Also after few days this product burn my cheeks really bad..i suppose because of this being so chemical. I would give this zero lipies but the minimum is 1.I am very dissapointed!!! I got really terrible time while using this and now i will throw 40euro right in garbage.I hate wasting money!! From last summer i use LaRochePosay Meltincream..is not really matte but it does have a very good protection SPF 50+ PPD 28,is gentle with my skin (sensitiv and acne prone skin-hormonal cystic acne) and good price(the European version of course).So i will stay with my LRP for sure.
Treatments -Garnier - Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray

I dont like this product because it made my hair look greasy next day. I did use on dry hair and next time on wet hair,the result is same.I hate to waste products so I use this treatment only on ends very little true to avoid the greasyness .I do like other Garnier hair products but this really bad. This also make my hair fall more like ussually.
I was really skeptical when i first got this product.A makeup youtube guru from EU was speaking alot about this gel. I was skeptikal more becouse i dont use/like cheap products and i dont trust Essence.But this clear gel is really amazing! I have really dark brows so i dont need to fill them.I use this gel from more then 3months and the tub is not even half. After long time use i dont have any complain.This is the best ever for taming unruly eyebrows,is also very cheap and is really doing a nice job.The best!!!!
I see a lot of bad reviews for this and i know why.I had the shampoo and the conditioner. First time i didnt like it too much the shampoo but the conditioner was really good. I did used the entire tubes of both and wasnt too impressed.Then i got also from John Frieda the line for dry/damaged hair (in silver tube) and i was so pleased. But after 3-4 uses the hair began to fall again and really bad..and then i realised how good was the "Full Repair"range. My hair is a bit damaged and from many years i have troubles with hair loss.I was born with this and with hormonal acnee also. I did used many types of trataments and many types of normal drug store products.This shampoo is really helping me by controling the hair loss. First time i didnt like it becouse is a bit drying but using after the conditioner ,is fine.I dont use any other trataments.On wet hair i use few drops of hair oil and thats all I am very impressed with this product.I plan testing other products in this range.I think this shampoo to work needs a while..for me was clear after i used the first tube. I already got a new shampoo and i dont think i will buy any other shampoo from now. And is true what other people say..it is expensive if is not in sale and even then is not cheap. Is true at beggining this shampoo is drying the hair abit but in time ..i suppose the hair needs awhile to get used.Right now i dont have same problem like 3months ago and doesnt dry my hair at all. The smell it is a bit strong and strange but after conditioner,oil and ..2hours later the smells disappears. I am amazed by how shinny and so great volume have my hair now :-)
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
redkitten 9/12/2012 10:57:00 AM
This the best powder i ever had!!!! I had few bad experiences with powders by not matching my skin color and making me look very orange.I am VERY pale with pink undertones.Other powders made my skin looking very dusty or worse on my list,i had a powder who during the day sucked the moisture from my skin and drying my skin so bad.i got dry patches all over and cracky skin after few weeks. I got this Rimmel after spending too much on a MakeUpForever powder and turn beeing too yelow and dark...i had no money and i was in big rush. So i got this Rimmel powder with few bucks and didnt expect anything good.I have 004SandStorm with some beige-yelow undertones and woow,i couldnt belive it.This was the first time ever when a powder perfectly matched my skin tone.For awhile i only use it on T zone but then the summer came and i start to use it on entire face.This powder is amazing in oil control,i cant belive how good it is.I have days when i had full makeup and use it this powder and 8hours later my makeup was perfect,not even oily nose or redness on my very sensitive cheeks..everything perfect. I also enjoyed using this powder for summer time,only serum+sunscreen and on top this powder. This have a medium coverage almost full. I can say, i found the HG perfect powder that i can use it anytime,all the time on entire face. But unfortunately the package suck and i do my best to dont hate it.Is really difficult to wear it in purse becouse the lid dont have any scroll so is imposibil to keep it closed.I had to find a plastic transparent very small cosmetic bag especialy for this powder to keep it safe and closed also germs free :-))) I honestly love love this amazing powder with cheap plastic package. Of course i will buy this product again and..again :-)
I've been using this for three weeks now and i was expecting some changes in my skin but i did not see anything.But also i glade this didnt clogged or didnot something bad to my hormonal acne. The texture is like water,not only one time i had troubles by this dopping all over. With Night Elixir from Olay i had way better results then this. I will stop using this and i dont think i will buy it too soon.Testing different serums make me realise that most are designed for skin over 40-45 and i should wait. I will go back to my Night Elixir and for day time ss,i think i will keep a simple routine from now.
This is the best mascara I have ever used! It separated my lashes so well,huge volume and it looks very natural whole day.It did not flake,It was not clumpy ...The miracle kept but only 2 weeks because it got suddenly dry.When i got this from store it had normal texture,creamy, then change in thick and then dryed completely.I do not understand why so soon?! I am totally disappointed! I will not buy it again because I don't like to waste money for nothing.I go back to my lovely Colossal and Catrice. L'oreal I was disappointed AGAIN! edit: 12.09.2012 i found on youtube few makeup gurus who said exactly the same about this mascara,both people had complained about this mascara getting dry in only 2weeks. I dont get it,L'oreal doesnt really care at all about quality?
I got the Super Liner Duo in Carbon Black(black tub with blue written)and is named duo liner coz the tip is flexible and u can made really thin or thick lines .At the moment i got this,i had another 3liquid liners,2pens and 2gels.I wasnt happy with those products and getting tired of spending too much time only for liner.I got this is in sale not hopping anything.But the surprise came from first application. The tip is amazing,not too long,not too flexible,not too soft..is perfect for me.Also the color is very black(glossy black),really intense black, not matt black like with gels. I love how quick i can line my both eyes without to be messy or wasting too much time(under 5minutes). I love how precise can be the tip.For me is a problem in morning, when 20mins after i wokeup i have to makeup and so often i have shaking hands and i am also very sleepy but with this liner is not a problem. Also for when i wear heavy makeup with many eyeshadows and is very important to dont ruin it by touching it with the liner,is really easy with this product. I have very sensitive eyes and really watery,often i get itchy or redness becouse of my genetic ocular sensitivity and i am surpised to dont have any trouble with this liner even if is not water resistant. Also this staying in place for 8-10hours,no smudging. I am so very happy with this product,the best ever!!! edit:12.09.2012 They changed the package and now the product is not the same.The color is not so black anymore..i am soo dissapointed.L-oreal i really hate you!!!!!!
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum
redkitten 1/13/2012 3:06:00 PM
This is my first serum from Olay,also second product from this brand.I had the european version,here in my country(Germany) we dont have the fragrance free version,only this one.This is enough gentle becouse ,i did apply it under eyes too and didnt had any trouble. This is great for summer time,i like how silky gets my skin,also i love the niacinamide,very calming and soothing for my skin. I dont like how u cant get the last drops becouse of too short pump,for me it was imposibile and still have 10% of the serum left in bottle. Also this was imposibile to wear under my foundation.Just one time i had the curiosity to apply this serum and next foundation and i was shocked.The serum made a siliconic film soo strong that i had areeas where it simply couldnt apply the foundation.I try it with fingers,brush,sponge and finally i used thermal water from avene and remove it.From then i use this always before bed time. I dont find any bad side ,or bad effect after i used the entire bottle.I still like it even if is imposibile to wear it under foundation,but i dont mind,i prefere ss anyway. Becouse i like to test new products i already got a new serum,the 3zone serum also from Olay. For moment i will not buy again the Regenerist serum,maybe later for summer time.I forgot to say how great is this with oil control but i think is doesnt matter too much for the reason ,i dont wear this in day time.
I have this product from more then 1year and i use it in all seasons.Some time ago i had the impresion this beeing really good for my lips but now i am sure.This is just a boring- comon lip balm in tube and also expensive.I got this product becouse i think pharmacy brands are more safe in ingredients then the rest.This lip tratament is same like any ceap lipbalm ,not same drying but same bad. My lips now in winter are peeling,cracking, bleeding really bad looking/feeling.While vaseline did worse,this lip tratament did too little.I have left half tube and i decide to stop using this.I will use my calendula balm,which is the best ever.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
redkitten 11/16/2011 11:57:00 AM
After i've read here so many good things about "pure petroleum Jelly-fragrance free",i got my own huge jar.It took me few months to realise the product i have is not so good like..is for other people.I use this from december last year for:under eyes(just very little for when i felt the area was very dry),on my hands(sometimes i was using my shea butter balm and becouse the texture is very very thick and difficult to use,i was adding very little petroleum jelly,also in this months i use it like lip balm every night before bed. From the first time i felt a smell of gasoline-petrol but everybody said it's imposibile..but is true,this is really having a strange smell(now i know for sure).Also in time i noticed my lips in morning where greasy but very dry.I went to google and youtube to check this,someone said this is true,vaseline suck the moisture from lips and next day the lips start peeling same like mine. Then seeing i am not crazy and this vaseline is making my lips very dry same like my hands (while i was using only vaseline for night time),also the strong gasoline smell..i quit using this product and..throw the almost full jar of 500ml. I decide to use my favorite calendula balm for my lips. I dont say ALL vaseline products are bad,i say the product i used was bad for my skin.I am not interested about other vaseline based products,i think is better to get some natural-organic balms,i think is more safe.
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Sensitive Facial Skin Q10 Active Night Anti-Wrinkle Cream
redkitten 11/16/2011 11:37:00 AM
I had this products before like 4years ago but is not the same coz they changed again the package and also some ingredients are different.I may say this new formula is better ,i like it more.My skin type is sensitive,prone to redness,irritations,dryness,cloggs and i have hormonal cystic accne from long time already.This night cream is really heavy,but not heavy-greasy-oily..is more like a balm.I really like the texture and if i use alot i dont get greasy finish,the skin is still mat,but dissapointed to see this stuff balls up sometimes.The smell is not strong,no problems for me. Comparing with other night creams i used before this is better becouse is not greasy and is not affecting my accne in anyway.I like to use this after my glycolic or salicilic pads and those two together are really great. There are two things i dont like about this night cream.The first is,i use alot product for entire face,the texture is thick so i need more then a coin size each time.Second i dont like the price is around 25euro in my local pharmacy.Becouse i need to use so much product at end the 25euro is too much for this night cream.For this price i can get other products.. I am not sure if i will get this another time,maybe i will find something else for a better price or maybe i will do like always..comeback to use really safe skincare products which my sensitive skin likes. This Eucerin night cream is better then Nivea Q10 night cream becouse i can use it every night,but the Nivea is clogging so i cant use it more then 3times weekly. My review is for Eucerin european version also i have the Nivea Q10 night cream made in germany.
Treatments (Eye) -Avene - Soothing Eye Contour Cream
redkitten 10/17/2011 3:38:00 PM
This is my favorite eye cream for day time and also the only one i buy it for ..actually now is 4th time.I cant even imagine replacing or ever finding something similar or better. Most of eye creams are giving me hard time only becouse i have very sensitive eyes..and this is genetics. I love this eye cream for morning and for evening,for eye lids ,great makeup base,great ss base and also great healing for dry patches all over face and very near eyes.This never gave me any irritation,any stinging or redness. While traveling i dont need to take 2eyecreams (home i use different ones for am/pm),i only take this,the tube package,really sanitary,tinny and safe,is making it perfect for my very often travels. This is the cheapest skincare product i use,even my lipbalm..but also i very ,very good. This is my HG eyecream for day time and for lids(is the only one i can use it without stinging and redness). Texture is light cream,not too heavy ,not too light.My trick is:with the ring finger i dab this cream gently untill is completly in..if i do the mistake to add some more then yes,i will get some oily marks..but i know how to solve this. I apply my eye make-up and before foundation i dab in the area i see some oily marks ,some toilet paper..and everything looks perfect. Belive me i use it and test it so many eyecreams,very expensive and very cheap ones,so i know when i find a really good eye cream.1tube is enough for 6months..2for1year,and yes i like to always have one new for any case :-) My HG eyecream from almost 2years!
This is my favorite pink lipstick ever! When i got this i didnt have any expectation for a product so cheap,but this became my favorite ever.In my everyday bag this lipstick is always there next to my very important things. I use the shade Kiss You very nice pink with silver glitter but this is hard to see it on lips.I use this very often like lipbalm becouse this is really good moisturising for everyday wear. Also i have the old package the light silver -really nice one. Really great product!!!
Here this brand is almost everywhere,in each store,each Mall also not the cheapest and very popular here(more then Catrice,or P2,Manhatann).I always avoid cheap lipsticks becouse i hate having my lips not spoiled so i avoid getting really cheap products.But becouse here this brand is so popular and the girls are always chatting about it,i said to test it and see if is worth the try. I got the lip gloss same product like in second picture named Super Girl ,i was pretty excited about the Glossy look.This is not drying ,not sticky also nice package.Unfortunately the pink i was hoping to get,was really not pink more like red-pink and i dont like it. This is reason i gave 4lipies.Those lipglosses are really good quality product but i dont like their shades,really not for my very pale skin.But i still think is a good product.
