Agree with previous review, this eyelash curler is just absolutely useless as it does not open up wide enough for someone to rest it comfortably at the base of their lashes. Did anyone at Sally Hansen actually try this curler? Such a waste.

This curler was great for about three months. I was able to get very close to the root and reach lashes on the outer corner. Got a really great curl. Now it won't curl at all, as if I just can't get it to squeeze down enough even with replacing the pads. Such a bummer! I'd expect this to last much longer. I may repurchase to see if it was just a one time fluke, because when it …Read more

This is a great drugstore find. Inexpensive with sales and even better if you get a manufacturer coupon often available - I got this from my local grocery store for $4.99, so definitely worth the try for that price and convenience. Application is smooth with the sponge,flattened "doe-foot" applicator. Dries evenly and quickly, does not dry out lids or skin on lower lash line, and …Read more

HG all the way. I have been using this for almost 4 months, and still on my first bottle with near daily use. And I use a lot. It is perfect for my dehydrated, acne prone skin. I have lots of hyper pigmentation from breakouts and this blurs them a bit since it is tinted, and over time it is helping them fade. Somehow this also blends very well into my pale skin. It works well alone or as a …Read more

Styling Products - Wella - Sugar Lift

I have fine, flat hair that gets oily at the scalp quickly, and trying to achieve texture and volume is always a challenge. I had great success with Redken Wool Shake on damp hair, but of course that product was discontinued. I hoped that this Wella Sugar Lift would be a suitable alternative, but it is not.

The scent is like clean shampoo, which is nice, but that is about the only …

I had to google what to do with this pencil...can it be sharpened? Am I supposed to twist the product up? As it turns out, you can sharpen it with a normal pencil sharpener. Good to know, since I forced myself to give it another try. And yep, still horrible. The brown color is good, they got that right. But it is waxy, the point is too wide to fill in the sparse areas of my brows, and the …Read more

A previous review doubted that having an AHA on the skin for just a minute could have any effect, and I would have agreed.....but I am happy to say that this body wash's AHA *is* having a wonderful effect on my skin. I suffer from KP (keratosis pilaris), raised red bumps on my legs and arms. My derm had said the only thing that would work is a lotion with lactic acid, but they were all so …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Flared Waterproof

Aug/31/2012

The waterproof formula does not budge at all, so I never have to worry about smudging. This mascara really does make a noticeable improvement in how voluminous my lashes look without ever looking spidery, brittle, or clumpy. I will admit that sometimes I stray from this mascara in search of something better. The tube dries out quickly as the previous review mentions, and I wonder, maybe I can …Read more

It is true - really is a light formula and not brittle at all. But MegaPlush waterproof is really just "your lashes but better." It is extremely natural looking, easy to remove but stays put all day. I will say this is a great waterproof mascara if you want something that looks natural. But I want volume! I want some curl and length, too, and so back to The Falsies Flared waterproof …Read more

This product is such a huge disappointment. I really have no reason to believe that this is protecting my hair from heat styling. My hair can look slightly frizzy after blow drying and with straightening I have noticed more split ends than usual. A couple years back, I was using Neutrogena HeatSafe and my hair was PROTECTED noticeably. Never got a split end or that frizzy post-blow dry look. …Read more
