Masks -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 40% Lactic Acid Peel
zahirahnajma 10/23/2007 6:36:00 PM
I tried this peel for the first time last night. I have been using 10% glyco products in addition to clindamyacin for acne. I washed with cetaphil, used their ph balancer and let it dry completely before putting on the lactic peel serum. It was slightly gooey and therefore easy to tell where I had put it. As soon as I put it on it started to tingle. I left it on for 5 mins then washed my face, followed with the ph balancer, and finally the copper peptide serum. For the rest of the evening, my face felt warm, like I had a sunburn. My cheeks were a tiny bit pink. Then this morning, I woke up, and YES it is worth all the raves!!!! I can't wait to see how it looks after another peel!!!!!
This did nothing for me. It was a waste of time. I will not be repurchasing.
I was very dissapointed that this product didn't work for me. I did like the way that it felt tingly and cool, but I think the extra menthol stuff might have been too much for my skin. It felt very tacky after it was on and it actually made me break out more. I used about a quarter of teh bottle and gave up.

Innovative with both 10% AHA and 2% BHA! This definitely made my face feel smoother and helped clear up some of the bumpy acne that was on my forehead. I didn't feel like it was too harsh and my skin did not 'purge', and I have been using this every night for 2+ weeks.
I really love this lip and cheek tint! I bought it at the airport on a whim and I'm so glad I did. it gives a very natural looking blush. I also love it as a lip stain. It's easy to blend for me and has good staying power. It looks lovely with no other makeup.
I bought this from all the reviews, it sounded like a great scent so I bought the big containers of the she she scrub and also the cream (I think it was body frosting). It smelled very sweet and foody in the package (a little too much for my taste) and then when I first put it on, it smelled great, more complex and kind of rummy (which was surprisingly good), but after a few hours the scent turned very rancid. I think its just me tho because super sweet scents tend to do this on me.

Stinky! Horribly stinky! Smells just like throw up! When I wore this I kept thinking that I smelled throw up for real... turns out it was my hair. GROSS! I'm all for herbal smelling products but this smells just nasty. The product was nice tho but not worth the stink. (also caused headache)

This looks good with Fake Bake's self tanner, which is incredible. I tried it on my face and that didn't work too well- a little too pink ish. I do think it looks nice on arms tho. Not incredibly gorgeous, just nice.

Its a nice lip gloss but not the best I've ever used. Nice, natural color and glossiness. However, I wouldn't repurchase just because I'd want to try something different.
I like this bronzer a lot. It doesn't sit on my skin wierd and it looks very natural. Not too shimmery which is good. Just very sun-kissed. My favorite bronzer so far but I haven't tried that many (only Mac and Paula Dorf)
EXCELLENT self tanner. The best that I have ever used. The color guide is very scary because it is so dark and when you put it on it looks like dirt but it is also good because you can REALLY see where you need to blend. It is perfect for olive skin tones where most self tanners don't look quite as natural. Also, if you use this, wear gloves!! That is no joke!

I use this every day and have been for a few years. It is a perfect gentle exfoliator for me. I think the packaging is fine, the tub doesn't bother me. It lasts for months even with daily use. I have re-bought it and will continue to do so forever.

I have been using this product alternating w/ the 8% AHA for a month and I believe that I'm having pretty good results. When I first started, my skin felt immediately super-soft, now it is ok, and I believe better than before I started using this product. I have combo skin and its helping the dry areas as well as reducing my pore size.
I have been buying this for years. My friends and I call it "lipglue". They have changed the formula since I first started buying it, it used to be even stickier if you can imagine. But it is the only lipgloss that gives that unreal diva shine and it looks great. If you're planning on going out dancing in it, don't whip your hair around too much or it will get stuck on your lips. Also, I was on a location photo shoot once when the model's false eyelashes started coming off, I didn't have the rest of my supplies on me so I used this to keep the eyelash stuck on somewhat.
