I love this moisturizer! I picked it up on a whim from the clearance area for just a few dollars. I wasn't expecting much for the price but I was pleasantly surprised! I have combination skin and am constantly breaking out along the jaw line. Many acne products help with the breakouts but leave my skin super flaky and dry (I don't know what's worse!) This moisturizer is perfect for …Read more

My skin was particularly dry last winter so I decided to try this product after reading all the great reviews. This product is very thick and I find that it takes some time to sink in. After applying my face does feel moisturized but also very greasy. For that reason, I only used it as a night cream. After a few weeks, I stopped using the product because it was causing me to breakout. The …Read more

I found a sample of this foundation in a magazine. I gave it a go, not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised! The sample shade soft beige was a perfect match. I got 2 uses out of the sample then went to buy a bottle. At under $10, this foundation is a great buy. The glass bottle with pump dispenses the product nicely. I have slightly dry skin (especially in the winter months) and this …Read more

I really wanted to like this cleanser because it is supposed to be so gentle. Unfortunately it did not "clarify" my skin one bit, I actually started breaking out :( Nothing major, but I got tiny red bumps all over my face. I don't know if it's something in the cleanser that I'm reacting to or if it's just not a strong enough cleanser for me. I usually buy cleansers …Read more

I saw a YouTube video a while back from someone who adored this product. I just happened to come across a HUGE bottle of it on sale for $10 so I just had to give it a try. At first I did not like the product. I thought it made my hair feel waxy, tangled and greasy. I buried it in the bathroom closet for months but then I decided to give it another shot. I've grown to like this product, but …Read more

This is not a product that I have to use very often, but when I do, it helps immensely! I sometimes get cold sores, and while this doesn't really help to "heal" them any faster, it makes my lips feel so much better. When I get a cold sore, my lips feel very dry and cracked. My usual lipbalm is just not enough during those times. A little bit of lip medex always does the trick …Read more

I use the face lotion version of this product and I love it! I've tried so many other self-tanners and this one is by far my favourite. It does not have the typical nasty self-tanner smell; in fact, I can't smell it at all after about a minute. It works fast! My face had a beautiful tan after only 2 applications. Not orangey and with a subtle shimmer, which I really like. It is not …Read more

Feb/07/2011

I'm indifferent to this product. I like that it is not drying, unlike most other acne treatments I have tried. Also, it seems to help smooth my skin a bit, especially on my forehead where I tend to get tiny bumps (though I'm not sure whether or not this is acne related). However, this product does not diminish whiteheads :( I'm still breaking out on a regular basis despite applying …Read more

Feb/01/2011

Love this shampoo!! My hair isn't particularly dry, but I wanted something a little bit more moisturizing for the winter months. This is perfect, it moisturizes and makes my hair super smooth without weighting it down. Doesn't leave any residue so my hair doesn't get gunked up like with other moisturizing shampoos. It smells fantastic (coconut) and is affordable at about 3$ for a …Read more

I looooove these blushes! They're very practical because they're small and you don't have to worry about brushes like you would with a powder blush. It's super quick, just swipe it on and blend with your fingers. The new shade, "peachy" is just gorgeous!

The one downside is the price for the size. The regular price for these is 7$, and they don't …
