Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler
wrinklefree 4/20/2013 4:10:00 PM
Beware of this product! I bought this brand new and used it yesterday. I counted 9 eyelashes pulled out. The rubber part seemed to separate where the metal guillotine came down and the lashes got pulled into this crevice. At first I thought they were cut but after close inspection I can see the root of the lash. I am horrified. I've never had this happen with any eyelash curler. I bought this as a spare. Omg I hope this never happens to someone else. Even if the rubber part is the cause of this, shame on E.L.F. :(
All I can say is "WOW". I had a recent visit to the dentist where she noticed I had chapped lips. She recommended this product and I went out and bought it that day from Walmart ($10). Instantly I had relief from the cracking on my lips. It stays on my lips longer than any lip balm I have tried. I apply it before bed and I can still feel it on my lips when I wake up. My lips have healed completely in just 3 days. In the meantime I decided to see how it would work on my hands and cuticles. My hands take a horrible beating since I work in a hospital. I wash my hands constantly and use foam alcohol too. I had cracked, chapped, and peeling skin. I applied this at night as well. I have cotton gloves but don't wear them since I wake up with them off (I guess in my sleep I don't like them lol). I apply it to my palm and let it sit for about 30 secs while it melts. It is very thick and won't spread well straight out of the tube. I then take the melted product and apply it to each finger cuticle and then to the spaces between my fingers. Then I just rub whatever is left onto both hands. Just enough to provide a very light coating. I wake up with healed and beautiful cuticles. My hands look the best they have in years. I wash my hands in the morning and the skin still looks wonderful so it is truly healed and not just coated with a product. I highly recommend this product and wish I had known about it sooner.
ION makes an excellent High Lift blonde..I use the 12A plus double 40 volume developer on my level 6A roots that are resistant and normally turn orange. I get a very pale blonde that looks so shiny and healthy. I only do the roots now but if you go to my profile you can see the blonde I achieved with this product. I am saving tons of money and when my colorist saw me at the market, the first thing she said was, "Are you still going to need me for haircuts?" Yes, she thought it looked that good. She knew she was being let go. She charged me $85 for a root touch up with Paul Mitchell that left my roots orange. I did this for less than $10 bucks. Go me!!!...Go ION!!!
Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - Blackhead/Blemish Extractor

This tool has cleaned out stubborn blackheads that have been on my face for months, possibly years. I use it after I get out of the shower when my pores are still dialated. I found it works better for me if I hold it horizontally instead of vertically. I then drag it downward towards the direction of the ground. I also find I get more blackheads from the outside of the loop instead of the inside. It was pricey but tweezerman makes quality items that will last a lifetime.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture Nurturing Creme

I love this product. I bought it after seeing all the great reviews and it didn't disappoint me. I have fine hair and I applied it to all of my hair except the roots. I could comb through my hair with total ease. It gives my hair softness and shine without weighing it down. I don't mind the packaging and I used a small amount for fantastic results. The smell is great. I will probably use this twice a week until my hair gets into better shape. I highly recommend this product.
I don't know why all the low reviews. I received this as a sample and I love it. It stays on all day and doesn't flake off or smudge under my eyes. I absolutely love the way it washes off my eyes. The brush is a little long for my liking but I will definitely buy a full size of this soon due to the other pros of this mascara.

Bought this on a whim. I'd never checked out the reviews on this one before buying. I am please to say that this is a great product! My ends get frizzy after blow drying. I apply a few pumps of this to my palms and rub it on the ends of my hair. No more frizzies and the smell is great! It does add a good amount of shine as well.
I love this shampoo. I have color treated hair and use mostly demi permanent color on it. I have tried other SLS free shampoos that claim they will not strip color and in fact did. This one really seems to keep the color from stripping. It doesn't lather that well but most SLS free ones don't. (It's the SLS that causes big lather). I like the smell and it leaves my hair really shiny. I get it for less than $6 usd at my local HEB and I think it's a great buy. It lasts a long time.

Love this perfume..Beware men love this too!!! I love the bottle and it has all day staying power too.
I agree with the last reviewer. I can't believe how great this brush is and only $1. The hairs are tightly packed together and cut just perfect making it dense but not so stiff that it scratches the skin. It holds a huge amount of shadow so you get a good amount of pigment onto the skin. Love it!!! My favorite!!
OMG! I love this Gel eyeliner. I can't believe it was only $5.99 at Walgreens. I love it more than Bobbi Brown. H.I.P. doesn't even come close in comparison. I bought the shade Wine. It comes with a small natural hair brush that works perfectly. I am going back for the other shades. The gel is actually a gel. Not a cream like texture passed off as a gel. This is my new HG eyeliner.
I am new to Rimmel polishes. I bought the shade Climax. It is a beautiful medium violet purple. I only have to apply one coat and it does dry in 60 seconds like it promises. I paid $2 and I think I got myself a great bargain. I can't wait to try other shades now. It doesn't have a lot of shine. It is almost a matte metalic. It looks great on the toes!
I am reviewing this only for the brows as it is the only area where I use the castor oil. I do not like the smell or texture (too thick) for anything else. I apply this carefully to my brow area and I say carefully because I used to just smear it on. By doing that I had TOO much hair growth. Above my brow and below my brow. I was a plucking fool. Now I only put it exactly where I want it. My brows have grown to the thickness I need them so I at this time I haven't been using it as much. A great remedy for overplucking for sure.

I really like this product. I have super straight hair naturally...or at least I thought I did. Since moving to Texas and bleaching my hair, I now have slight waves in my hair...go figure. I am fascinated by it and also experimenting with it since I have never had this type of hair texture before. I bought this product because I wanted to play with my new hair. I spray it on after "plopping" my hair with a micro fiber towel and let my hair air dry. I have beachy waves. Not big waves but waves and they hold together without looking messy. I will continue using this until I experiment with other beach wave products out there.

This just didn't work like I expected. I had used AHA's for years and have had great results. MaMa lotion didn't so anything exceptional for me. I didn't see any improvement in my skin tone. The good side is I didn't have any bad reactions either. No peeling or burning. I just think for the cost and the higher percent of acid (20%), I would've at least seen some texture or color improvement. Nothing here.
