I'll be real. Mine is a gift from TJMaxx and not some fancy brand. But I'm putting this review here because I don't think it matters which brand people get. I can't say the price value except that I think it's mostly bullshit so it's not a very great one. Does massaging your skin being blood flow? Sure. Does cooling the roller or using anything cool help …Read more

WOAH the reviews made me not want to try this.... But, I really wanted a nice berry shade and every shade I looked at was too pink or too red or too purple and I really wanted a nice mix. Plus I had a coupon. So I picked up "Believer".

Yea, the formula is tricky as hell. But I found the trick is *NOT* to blot or press your lips. Don't go crazy with the layering and just …

I passed on this originally for the glacier water one, but when I loved that and was looking for the larger tube size, I found this one more easily. So I bought a small pack to test it and found I liked it a lot as well. It smells absolutely amazing and moisturizes just as well as the glacier water one.

It's sold in a larger 6oz tube at Ulta and I scored two on a sale, making it …

My sister uses this and I like the weightless one. We've tried a few between us, but most of them are too thick for me even though my hair isn't fine. (Neither is my sister's, hers is curly and thick and mine is wavy and thick). But she like this and I didn't. It makes my hair feel kinda sticky in the back/bulk of it similar to how the 10 in one did. So similar to other …Read more

I break out pretty easily but this has been great. I don't use it purely on my skin most of the time though. I found it helps to pump it onto my nighttime moisturizer and mix it together. Sometimes the pump is funny but overall I think it's a great product. Some people have reactions to specific oils, and since this is just an oil blend, that's something to look out for. But I …Read more

Wow! I can't believe the reviews! First of all, it's $3.99. It's a great item and I bought 7 of them. I keep one in my gym bag and use it often if I'm going hiking. Even my kids love it to cool off and refresh. I love Burt's Bees Rosewater Toner and this works out to the same price (because it's half the size). I use that one every morning and the ingredients are so …Read more

I like this product. I'm on my second tube. I keep it in my gym bag because it's a great size for that. I really like how it moisturizes but like the first reviewer said, it's quite heavy so it's more for thick or course hair. But I like that, because too many 'masks' are just conditioner without much added to make them mask-like. I also highly recommend cutting the …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Milk of Magnesia as Primer

I used this for a little while with a prescription that made me oily but I can't recommend this. I know it seems to work at first, but long term use damages the skin and it's oil production, even on oily skinned people. I have to advise you guys to steer clear. It's not meant for skin, certainly not daily/frequent use. It can take years to recover from damaged barrier/damaged oil …Read more

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Duo (US Version)

I wrote a whole long review but deleted it. I don't have cystic acne like some people, but I would occasionally get some, plus infected whiteheads I messed with. So I hoped products like this would cut the infection rate. Basically I hated BP treatments since using Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing lotion. It made my skin taught, shiny, flakey and raw while I still had breakouts. It was a …Read more
