Cleansers - Boots - Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil N/D

Sep/28/2016

This is fine for what it is, a bargain-priced cleansing oil. I picked it up at Target because I was out of my usual oil and didn't have time to order it. The ingredients aren't the best, so I make sure I double-cleanse with this one. It does a fine job removing all my makeup, including waterproof mascara, with three pumps of product. As bargains go, I definitely prefer this one over the …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Polar Bare

Jun/13/2014

This is a great shade for French tips. I don't like the look of super bright stark white tips. I usually wear a sheer neutral nail (Essie Mademoiselle, OPI Passion, Chanel Beige Petale) but I like a little something to define the tips without looking too obvious. Polar Bear is great. I put on a base coat, freehand the tips, then add a coat of polish and Seche Vite, and I'm done. Easy …Read more

Very meh.


I thought I loved this when I smelled the sample strip in the catalog 12 or 13 years ago, but at that time I couldn't find the $20 or whatever it cost (I know, young, just starting out). I ran across it again lately and snapped it up. What a disappointment! This scent is beyond generic.


It doesn't smell unpleasant, it's just nothing …

I absolutely loved this fragrance when I was in my mid-20s. I used to spray some on every trip to Sephora but never bought my own bottle. Now at 38, I thought of it again and ordered a small decant just to be sure. And glad I did because this fragrance doesn't suit me anymore.


I appreciate the fresh, citrusy, watery notes, but I found the whole presentation too sharp …

Lotions/ Creams - Johnson & Johnson - Vanilla Oatmeal Baby Lotion

1.0

Mar/06/2013

Yeah, I don't get the raves, either! This is a decent lotion, and cheap, but it doesn't smell like vanilla, it doesn't smell like oatmeal, and it doesn't smell good! And I've tried it twice, so I didn't get a bad batch. There's something fruity about the scent. A definite pineapple undertone that I just fixate on and can't stand. I do loooove the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Nuance by Salma Hayek - My secret super moisturizing body cream

Jan/29/2013

I want to love this cream so bad! The ingredients are awesome and it moisturizes so well. It feels great going on, absorbs fast, and leaves my skin so super soft. I just really don't like the scent! This smells exactly like a fresh pack of cigarettes. I know there are other notes in there, but the one that sticks on me is the tobacco scent. I would definitely buy this again if there were an …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Rosehip Moisturizing Body Lotion

This lotion is just OK. Pluses are it's light, not sticky, and if you like the scent, great. To me, this smells like a perfume that was popular in the 90s that smelled like rose but also had some tobacco and beer notes. I don't know what it was called, but I never really liked it. Of my three criteria for lotion—performance, scent, and value—this doesn't really meet any of them. It …Read more

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - Lip Butter

Jan/04/2013

Complete agreement, miracle product! I also saw the display at CVS; it just caught my eye because I love Nivea Creme in the tin so much and I thought it was some new variation of it. When I saw that they were lip butters (and OMG do I love lip products!), I of course wanted to snap up all four flavors on the spot. But I held back and bought just the plain one (which by the way is unscented) …Read more
