Conditioner - The Body Shop - Banana Truly Nourishing Conditioner

I was not too impressed with the shampoo from the same series so I really did not expect to like this conditioner as much as I do. This is way better than a lot of the high end hair products I've used, and I've tried quite a few (haven't reviewed them all, unfortunately), plus it's way more affordable than what I usually use. I don't think I've ever seen my hair so …Read more

Shampoo - Wella - ELEMENTS Renewing Shampoo

1.0

I don't know if I accidentally bought a "bad" bottle, I guess it could happen, but this thing makes my dry, thick hair oily. I'm talking about hair that could usually go up to 4 days without washing (I guess having awfully dry hair has this one perk). I tried this shampoo with different masks and conditioners and finally on its own, tried to wash just once, then twice, just to …Read more

Conditioner - Matrix - Total Results Mega Sleek

I didn't expect to love this conditioner so much. It achieves similar results to one of my favorite conditioners - Living Proof Frizz Ease, but for half the price, including what I love most about it - it keeps my hair clean looking and frizz free for longer.
The smell is somewhat sweet and sugary, but it's not overpowering and it disappears after a short time, or at least I …

I think this would make for a great first fragrance for a young girl/woman. It's very light, clean and inoffensive. On me, however, this smells more like a car air freshener.

Eyeliner - Catrice - Liquid Liner

I think I found my favorite eyeliner. I'm on my second tube.
This is the best of both worlds - it has the tip of a pen eyeliner so it is very easy to apply and it has the deep pigmentation and staying power of a liquid eyeliner. Bonus points for the small metal ball in the tube that prevents the product from drying up too quickly (just shake the tube from time to time). Not to mention …

Meh.
This is not a horrible product. It does the job, my hair does feel clean after using it. I don't think it does anything to moisturize my dry hair as it promises but I haven't really expected it from a shampoo. For a product that does contain sulfates, however, you would expect it to lather a lot more than it does. I end up using quite a lot of it for a single wash, and this is …

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Moringa Body Milk

2.0

Jul/04/2018

I buy all my body lotions for the fragrance as my skin is not dry so I can't talk much about moisturizing quality.
In the packaging, this thing smells like heaven on earth. On my skin, however, it somehow turns into laundry detergent. I mean, smelling like fresh laundry is not bad and all, but when you thought you were going to smell like heaven on earth, it's kind of disappointing.

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Moroccan Oil Treatment

Jun/25/2018

I wanted to try this oil for a long time since everyone seems to love it so much. I've been using it for three months now and I just don't get it. Yes, it does smell good and it makes my hair softer and shinier, but I see no difference in its overall condition over time, and I do expect a difference from a product that has the word "treatment" attached to it, and especially …Read more

Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara

Jun/22/2018

I like this much more than the overhyped LÓreal Lash Paradise which irritates my eyes and smudges at the slightest impact with water, not to mention it's about five times cheaper (at least in my country). This one does not flake ot smudge on me and makes my lashes HUGE.
I knocked down a lippie because the wand is not easy to work with and it can make your lashes spider-y if you're …

Cleansers - Philosophy - Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 cleanser

Jun/08/2018

This is surprisingly good for removing eye makeup while still in the shower - it even manages to remove some very stubborn Maybelline mascaras so I can skip the additional step with the micellar water I usually use to get rid of any leftover makeup.
I knocked off one lippie because my skin can feel kinda dried out right after I use it but the feeling disappears quickly and it does not make …
