this foundation has spf 28, PA ++. u have to shake it well before use. i feel like im using correction fluid, cos this foundation also has that metal ball in it to mix the foundation well. it stays on well, and its light consistency is really comfortable for me. i like the bottle too. it's a squeeze bottle, so u'll always get just the amt u need. i hate my body shop's tea tree oil liquid foundation bottle. i always pour too much foundation out. haha. however, i wished the bottle is translucent/transparent. cos i just wanna know how much i have used. =x cos i cant wait to try out new foundations! =)
i've only been using this for 2 wks, so i'm not sure if it really works. this lotion is supposed to firm dimpled flesh ( i guess they meant cellulite?) and saggy skin. i'm not very sure if it did frim my skin, but it is non-sticky, as they claimed. it's a gel-type of lotion, and is easily absorbed plus moisturizing. i wouldnt depend solely on lotions like these to get my body into shape. exercising is a much more dependable option to me, but i may get this again, cos i would need a little more help to scuplt my fat butts!
Polishes -Sally Hansen - French Manicure - Sheerly Mauve
wy_nike 11/28/2006 4:49:00 AM
i got this in sheer romance as a gift. it's alright really. using the strips to get a french manicure isnt easy, and when i remove the strips (those stickers that came with the nail poloishes), it leaves a ridge of hardened polish between. which is ugly. and a straight giveaway that these nails werent done by the professionals. so.. i'd rather pay someone to do my nails for me. but when im low on budget, i'll use this set, but without the strips. i find that it looks better that way. but u have to have a pair of steady hands, of course! so my nails only look nice from afar. haha~ =)
i prefer moonflower to this actually, but i got this as a gift so i shant complain. i like how refreshing it feels. it's totally different from the usual perfumes i use. lasts rather long too. nth spectacular abt the packaging. but if given a choice, i'll get moonflower. =)
alrite. i shall admit that i own many bottles of perfumes. haha~ this is my 2nd elizabeth arden perfume. my first was provocative woman. i prefer that to green tea actually. but green tea is refreshing, simple, and calms me down. the body lotion is great as well.
another of my fav fragrances. my friend says it makes me smell more matured and womanly compared to my usual sporty fragrance i used to use. haha. love how it smell. the bottle's quite classy too, and the fragrance stays almost all day.
i love this scent. it's sweet and beautiful. the packaging is really pretty too. and it lasts rather long.
this lotion smells nice, and has a refreshing feel. but it's kind of difficult to squeeze the lotion out, and i find it difficult to spread it on my body as well. but it is quite good for dry skin.
this is too drying for my lips. didnt like how it smell too. and the clear gloss on one side of the tube smells minty, in a weird way. and i think u can use it on top of the pink gloss on the other side of the tube, but it'll mess up the clear gloss. so i think u're not supposed to use them tog?? hahah. im not getting this again.
this 13ml tube of gloss sure lasts long. i have it for more than 1.5 yrs alr. i cant wait for it to finish so that i can try another lip gloss. =x ok i have a bunch of lip glosses to clear. i cant seem to stop buying them! haha. i got this is shade 3, berry pink. i like this cos it looks rather natural on me. but it can nv last thru a meal, which is normal of lip glosses. i'll just get some glitter left on my lips after i finished my meal. this is a little drying for my lips though.
i love this leave-in conditioner. it's my fav body shop product. it combines sunscreen to protect my hair. and i'm always out in the sun so i really need that. it keeps my hair nice and smooth, and it lasts really long for a 100ml bottle though i have long hair.
Toners -The Body Shop - Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz
wy_nike 11/28/2006 12:26:00 AM
this was given to me for free so im not sure abt the price. it is refreshing. i didnt know it's under toners though. i just spritz my face whenever im feeling sleepy in class. it's an average pdt for me, i wont be getting it when i finish it. it really stings your eyes, and i dont really using a facial spritz anyway.
this bronzer has shimmer in it, so not everyone will like it. i got the 02 shade in coral. it has the lighter colour in the middle and the darker one surrounding it. i find it quite bothersome cos sometimes i dont want to mix both colours, i just want to use the darker colour to create a shadow on my face so that my face wont look so round. but this looks natural on me. i may get this again, but i'll most prob look for a bronzer that dont have shimmer, and one that has is more convenient to use when im creating shadows. but the design was pretty, and u can use it as an eyeshadow as well. it also looks rather natural on me. =)
they only had 3 different shades for this foundation. i got the medium shade, which looks a little to light on my face. but the dark shade would make me look disgusting. i could have bought both and mix it to get my own skin colour, but luckily i didnt. it feels kinda sticky on my skin. maybe it's cos of the tea tree oil? im not v sure though. and it has little bits of hard stuff in the foundation. wth?? i always shake the bottle well before i use it, so i dont understand why i get bits of foundations. weird. i dont think it did much to help my breakouts too. and i dont like the bottle. i prefer a squeeze bottle like fasio's fit and stay foundation. at least u can control the amt of foundation u want with fasio. and why isnt there any SPF with this pdt?? so, i wont be getting this again.
Masks -Totally Juicy - Apple Deep Pore Peel-Off Masque
wy_nike 11/27/2006 11:33:00 PM
i like this masque lots! love how it smells, and it's good for clearing the dirt in my pores cos it's a peel-off type of masque. it also has witch hazel and tea tree extract, which is good for my oily skin. and it's reasonably-priced. but i hate the packaging. the tube started to crack all over the place and the masque started to spill out of the tube. irritating. i had to move it into another container. would have given it 4 lippies if not for the container.
