Feb/25/2012

The only other oil cleanser I've used is the DHC brand, and it is just okay. I never considered adding an oil cleanser to my routine, but had to try the Neutrogena after reading reviews. Also, it is not available in the U.S. so this just increased my desire to try it. I mentioned it to my sister who lives in Shanghai, and she surprised me with two bottles when she visited. Sweet!

The first few days of using this cleanser were great. I loved the fine scrubbing particles and the foamy consistency. My skin did not feel overly dry and tight which is always a plus. Fast forward a week and I began to break out with little bumps in different areas of my face. After discontinuing use, my face cleared up completely. Oh well. At lleast I gave it a try.

I have used this product for about 3 months. After shampooing and conditioning, I apply it to towel dried hair before blow drying. It's very lightwieght and makes blow drying with the comb attachment a breeze. Target had a buy one, get one free sale, and I was excited to give this a try. Great investment!

This serum leaves the skin feeling sticky and coated. I prefer products that leave the skin with a smooth even feel. It contains many anti-oxidants. One being what they call Instalift Goji (Tibetan Goji Berry). Sorry, but fancy names can not save this product.

I am still a sucker for Philosophy shower gels, and Belgian Waffles does not disappoint. The scent of warm buttery waffles dripping with syrup is intoxicating. Love it! I was expecting this one to smell similar to Philosophy's Waffle Cone, but they pull off two distinct scents. Wish they lasted longer once out of the shower. Sadly, this scent has been discontinued.

I haven't used a bar soap on my face in years, but I heard good things about the Ambi bar. I've used it for two months without any adverse reactions. After rinsing with warm water, my skin is left with a clean and refreshing feeling. Since it's a bar soap, it can leave the skin with a slightly tight, dry feeling. It also has a light, fresh scent.
Update: I started using …

This mascara gives lashes a nicely defined look. My lashes looked naturally long without being overly dramatic. It's great for a daytime look. If you are looking for a mascara that gives the lush, plump, dramatic look, this ones not for you. I received this as a GWP but I would not purchase it.

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

I am so psyched to have "discovered" this gem on a hair care forum. I pre-shampoo with it overnight or with heat for 20 minutes. Sometimes, I add amla oil, olive oil, almond oil, honey, grapeseed or jojoba oils to the pre-poo. I mix a little with my conditioner for deep conditioning after shampooing. For two weeks I've used it as a facial moisturizer on all areas below my eyes …Read more

Skincare - Body - Carol's Daughter - Sugar Dipped Vanilla

This rating is a 3.5. I love the vanilla scent that lasts for hours. This line of products gives the illusion of being very hydrating, but after about an hour my skin feels "normal" again. The body cream goes on thick and it takes a while to absorb so I think this is where the illusion comes in. Overall, a great smelling line, but the body cream is an average moisturizer.

Cleansers - Lumene - Radiant Touch Moisturizing Cream Cleanser

Since I live in Michigan, I decided to try this creamy cleanser for the winter months. Mistake! After using only 3 times, I had a pimple on my forehead and one on my cheek. Argh! They're gone now, but they left behind brown spots in their place. Double Argh!! This is the first Lumene product I've tried and I am disappointed. At least it was on clearance at Target for only $7.
