Cleansers - Noxzema - CLASSIC CLEAN Original Deep Cleansing Cream

I am beginning to suspect this is not only a gentle cleanser, but an anti-wrinkle cream as well! YES! I stopped using Noxema to try a salicylic acid wash for the monthly chin cyst. Bad idea. After a week, my skin began to look very brittle, dull and OLD.
Back to the blue bottle!
I used to feel embarrassed to use a product that was marketed to teenagers but no longer! It’s wonderful! …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Ballet Slippers

Hey! I’ve tried a new tactic that seems to help a lot:

1. Replace the skinny brush with the big rounded one from the Essie Couture line or Sally Hansen Salon line
2. Apply two coats to one hand at a time. By one hand at a time, I mean paint all five nails with a thin coat once and then go right back and do the second coat. Try to *slightly* float the second coat. Then do your other …

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo - Dry Hair

This is formulated for only the most dry & damaged hair. Unfortunately, I found that it made my hair too soft and limp. The shampoo and conditioner smell amazing and impart lots of shine but I don’t need this intense level of moisturization.
It’s a bit hard to rinse out. The conditioner also makes my shower floor extremely slippery!
That being said, I enjoy zero frizz now. Which is …

Lip Treatments - Chapstick - Original

Best lip product ever! Recently, the outline of my top and bottom lips suddenly became ultra dry, chapped, cracked, peeling, weeping and also terribly itchy. Cute, huh? I tried Vaseline, Dr. Bronners, Burt’s bees, Carmex, Blistex, even diaper rash cream- all my old standbys, and not one of them worked. Finally, FINALLY, my lips became completely soothed and refreshed in the span of 15 min after …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Provocalips 16HR Kiss Proof Lip Colour

Wow this LASTS! I purchased Lazy Daze, which is a deep natural rose colour with a hint of grey or brown that can be worn subtly or heavily, depending on how much you load your applicator. It was so comfortable all day and I didn’t need to reapply at all. In fact, I had to drag out the baby oil to remove it! Usually long wear products feel masky or cakey but not this- it seems to settle in and act …Read more

Bustier is a dusty brick rose on me and I love it. Every time I wear it my husband says ‘your skin looks bright-you have good colour today’- he’s not aware it’s my lips, lol.
And strangely, for a very dry formula it makes my lips look huge!
All my other long wear products do the exact opposite and shrink ‘em down. How is this illusion happening?
Not as long wearing as I’d like- I …

Literally the worst shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used! I used the Almond and Argan Oil type. All was fine in the shower, nice foam, good conditioning ...but it was almost impossible to comb through my hair after towel drying. And after blow drying, it was literally stiff! My hair felt like straw! I used a straightener on my fringe and my hair stuck out like a flipping shingle! I can’t …Read more

This is a 2019 formula review:
FLAWLESS. I have very dry skin and I also live in an arid climate. I am prone to cysts and rosacea. None of these conditions is triggered by this formula. Sheer, spreads easily, absorbs instantly. Soft and stretchy comfort. It is extremely moisturizing, but also extremely light. It is truly effective for hours against the harsh sun. Not a new freckle or melasma …

I LOVE this mascara! How is this so good for so cheap?!
Length? Yes. Gloss? Yes. Buildable volume? Yes. Zero clumps? Triple yes! Wow.
The base and wand are solidly built and the wand itself is super firm. The fluffy bristle brush is conical in shape, reaches every little lash and pulls up and out for a noticeable fanning effect. My lashes stayed long and tall all day! Even at three …

Moisturizers - Pond's - Dry Skin Cream

Oh the SMELL! Rancid baby powder!
It feels and slicks up like mineral oil, and moisturizes just as poorly as pure mineral oil. I actually don’t mind a touch of mineral oil in my products. But not this one!
I’m a big fan of workhorse beauty products like Nivea and Vaseline. Sadly, this old remedy is only going onto my legs - anywhere but near my nose.
