Cleansers - Eminence Organic Skin Care - Stone Crop Gel Wash

Mar/30/2008

I'm 21 years old with skin that has a dry surface and tends to be VERY congested. Most cleansers I use tend to give me small flakes, regardless of how gentle they claim to be. I went in to a local spa for a facial a few weeks ago and the esthetician used all Eminence products on me, particularly the Stone Crop products. I loved the way they felt and smelled, and was thrilled with how soft …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Nature's Cure - two part acne treatment system for females

Aug/03/2007

I don't have "bad" skin, but my skin wasn't looking as fab as I wanted it to. I mostly deal with lots of clogged pores, a moderate amount of blackheads, and mild acne (some whiteheads that occasionally crop up around my jawline and on my cheeks). Even though my skin wasn't a disaster, the perfectionist in me wanted it to be as close to perfect as possible. I saw ads in …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

Jan/22/2007

I love coconut scents, and this isn't my favorite, but I must say, this performs VERY well as a moisturizer. I've been using it consistently on damp skin after coming out of the shower. Not only has it helped with the dry, itchy skin I've had this winter, my skin is almost MOIST at the end of the day. It's kind of amazing. I may try more TBS Body Butters in different scents.

I am so impressed with this product! It was mentioned constantly in favorable tones on the skincare board, and I finally grabbed a bottle for myself. I got it four about $14 including shipping on Ebay. I have combo/oily skin, and was having problems with breakouts, uneven skin tone, some atrophic scarring, and some flaking (I use Avene Diacneal, so I think that's where most of the dryness …Read more

Body Scrubs - Victoria's Secret - Stimulating Body Scrub - Amber Romance

Jan/18/2007

I have always loved this particular scent, and I bought the scrub based on that and the good reviews. The nine dollars I shelled out for it did not make me happy, especially because there isn't a ton in the tube. But the product itself is excellent. The smell is, as always, absolutely wonderful, and the scrub performs really well as an exfoliant. Like another reviewer said, it wasn't …Read more

Hair Treatments - Redken - Extreme Anti Snap OLD FORMULA see 143469 for new [REFORMULATED]

Jan/14/2007

I got this in a swap, and have used it once, and I'm impressed. I have fine, medium-length, color-treated hair that is very dry on the ends. I applied this stuff before blowdrying, and my hair has been soft and manageable all day. I can't speak for the strengthening properties of the product, but I'll give it some time. EDIT: While Anti Snap is a fairly good product, I agree that …Read more

Dec/09/2006

The ladies on the skincare board talked so highly of this stuff that I wanted it for a long time. I put it off for awhile due to the high price, but finally caved in and bought a tube. It was a little tricky to get my hands on, which is a bit annoying. I wish it were more accessible, but I guess everything can't be good about this stuff. I've only used it two nights so far. I really …Read more

Body Scrubs - Bath & Body Works - Island Hot Spot Warming Body Scrub

Dec/09/2006

I wasn't too impressed. I usually LOVE sweet coconut scents, but this one was overwhelming and sickeningly sweet. Once I got in the shower and was already feeling nauseated, and when I used this stuff it made the nausea so much worse. It functions okay as a scrub, although I don't really feel the warming sensation. The price isn't great, either. Not the worst or the best scrub …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Exact Mascara

Nov/12/2006

I bought this based on the good reviews. It's a good basic mascara that doesn't clump. However, I find that it doesn't give me the drama or volume that I need. Nice packaging and price, but won't repurchase.

Sep/15/2006

This is a very early review, but I'll update after I've been using it for longer. I recently bought two brand new bottles of this from someone, and I really like it so far. It's really silky and isn't greasy at all, and I have oily skin. A very nice, light moisturizer, and I like the fact that it's helping my BHA and AHA treatments penetrate my pores deeper. I've …Read more
