I don't know what possessed me to spend about $40 CDN on a damn deodorant...but I made the splurge and kind of regret it because it's sitting on my vanity unused most days, because I never want to reach for it and usually grab my $3 Secret cocoa butter stick instead. Or if I think I'll be extra sweaty that day, I'll use men's deodorant. (Old Spice Wolfthorn smells fruity …Read more

I really liked this at first. It has a nice texture, consistency, and scent...but now that I'm reaching the end of my jar, I finally put two and two together and realized this has been the cause of the clogged pores I have all over my chin and around my mouth (where my combo skin is the oiliest and forever sweating). I didn't have this problem even in the middle of summer when I was …Read more

This is my favorite perfume of the moment. I just went out and repurchased the largest bottle of this last night, because I need this in my life.
I first sniffed and bought this last spring, after testing all the different Daisy perfumes, this one was hands down ME. It immediately reminded me of a scent from my childhood that I couldn't really place, but it was a scent that invokes …

Deodorants - Secret - Aluminum Free Deodorant

I find this only works if I'm able to reapply it several times a day. So this is now my around the house or bedtime deodorant. I don't even have an issue with aluminum so I'm not even sure why I bought it. Probably because it was new, rosewater scented, and clear. It would be a very nice deodorant if it held up throughout the day...but it really doesn't. I accidentally wore …Read more

I'm sorry, but I found this concealer to be effing terrible. Had to toss it. I can't remember what shade I bought, I think it was Fair Warm, and as I'm usually the lightest shade in most drugstore concealers, I thought it might actually be too dark for me. Nope! It was ghostly white. But I thought, meh, that's fine, I'll just test it out anyway to see if I like the …Read more

OMG. I bought this last week, unaware of the price. I went into the store, specifically to pick up some other makeup item, which was sold out...so on a whim and still in the mood to splurge, I saw this and just picked it up. When I got home and looked at my receipt I gasped, had the wind knocked out of me, and literally laughed out loud at myself. $42 CDN before taxes! For a tinted lip balm!!! …Read more

This is a gem. I'm a sucker for basic face lotions that simply moisturize my face, no muss no fuss no extras...that don't irritate my skin or cause breakouts. And this is one of the best ones I've ever tried. Has the perfect level of moisturization for me (combo skin) not too much not too little, has your typical lotion texture, no scent. I can use this day or night (although no …Read more

I recently finished a jar of this. I'm so torn on how to review it properly. Wasn't sure if I should give it a 3 or a 4 lippy, wasn't sure if I would buy it again.
It's a beautiful moisturizer. Packaging is pretty, lovely subtle scent of roses, texture feels luxurious, makes face feel moist and supple, without greasiness. Also, my skin felt ridiculously soft and smooth …

I originally bought this to use on my face through the winter, after reading numerous reviews of people using it and loving it as a face cream. But honestly, I hated it for that. It leaves way too much of a matte finish, it even dries down to FEEL a bit drying. I just wanted a thick uncomplicated cream to soothe my dry winter skin, but this didn't cut it. So I switched to Cetaphil face and …Read more

Stick - PUR Cosmetics - 4-in-1 Foundation Stick

Ugh! So bad! To describe this foundation stick in one word: GRITTY. And that's enough for me to not want to use it. It literally feels/looks like it has sand in the formula. SAND. It makes for an unpleasant application. Scratchy as hell, almost feels like you're applying an exfoliating scrub, made me worried it was actually damaging my skin. Takes some effort to blend, clings to dry …Read more
