I am shocked that I love a Dial soap so much! The scent is divine; sweet and warm without being overpowering! I have a patch of eczema and have found this body wash to be very moisturizing--I don't feel itchy or dry afterwards. The scent lingers in the bathroom long after my shower and I'm always pleasantly surprised when I can still smell it. I will definitely repurchase given the …Read more

May/26/2016

I am 30 years old, have normal-to-oily (in the summer) skin, and have been using this product for about 6 days. I usually use more expensive skin care and had stopped using my HG serum after it ran out (Paula's Choice Ultra-Light Resist) and for about two months, my skin was a complete mess. I was getting frequent pimples and occasional cystic pimples that never came to a head and never …Read more

I am really surprised how much I like this moisturizer! I've been using it all Fall & Winter as my daytime moisturizer because I wanted something with SPF. I find that it absorbs quickly, does not leave any greasy or sticky feeling, and plays well with my makeup. I absolutely HATE the old lady smell but you get used to it after a few minutes. I also wish the packaging was different …Read more

This collection claims to renew the scent every time you touch your skin for 12 hours. I didn't find that to be true at all; I couldn't smell the scent after I left the shower. I enjoyed the scent well enough but found it to be a little musky and overly warm-smelling (Adore Forever). This formula also did not provide any moisture; my skin got so dry (in winter) that I had to return …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black

I've been using this mascara for about a week and my whole review is based on comparing it to my HG, Blinc. It is really good for US$7 when compared to Blinc's $30! This mascara tubes your lashes and comes off easily with warm water. It's smudge and sweat-proof, which are essentials for me.

I find that it flakes a tiny bit by the end of the day, whereas Blinc does …

I barely had time to form an opinion on this cream because I hated the smell so much. It smells like powdery, old lady to me. I found it to be a bit greasy, too, so I gave it away ASAP.

I just breezed past this in Whole Foods and spritzed it on my neck--hours later, I had hundreds of tiny red bumps covering my chest and neck. I do not have sensitive skin and have never had a reaction to any products before, so I was shocked! The rash lasted for over 5 days so I wouldn't touch this product with a ten-foot pole.

Sep/08/2015

I second everything in the review below this except I didn't poke myself in the eye.
I got a deluxe sample of this from Ulta and used it for one day--my curl was drooping within an hour and after 4 hours, I had tiny flakes under my eye. It was a beast to remove, as well, which isn't worth it for a mascara that flakes. Was more of a lengthen & separate mascara than a …

If you have been thinking about buying a Glamglow mask, you absolutely need to GET THIS INSTEAD. It's around $20 and works infinitely better! It is a thick, dark grey, clay-like formula with chunks in it just like Glamglow and dries very quickly on your skin. As it dries, it draws oil out of your pores and you can see the little dots on the surface. It cleared out the sebum on my nose …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Professional Lacquer

Jul/29/2015

I keep getting lured in by Zoya's Instagram sales, but I do not enjoy the formula at all. It's too thick to get an even coat (with the colours Rue and Melody, especially). The brushes are very small and narrow. Talia is truly a one-coater but it stains your nails SO BADLY. I've never experienced anything like that before. I had to scrub my nails and fingers with a baking soda …Read more
