This stuff decimates blackheads. I mean it literally knocks them out of your pores. I scrub the microcrystals in Step 1 on my nose, while just kind of "spreading" them everywhere else my face. My nose is very resistant and is the exclusive home of the lovely blackheads on my face - so it gets scrubbed!

I use other strong AHAs and BHAs in my daily routine, plus Differin at …

Taking 5 mg (5,000 mcg) of biotin absolutely made my nails grow in stronger and my hair grow faster. I'd been using Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails formula on and off for years. It contains 3 mg if you take the 3 pills you are supposed to every day. I didn't commit to really taking the 3 pills, and therefore the daily 3 mg, until earlier this year. I started noticing hair …Read more

I love this lotion and have noticed a difference in hair over time. It's a bit finer and lighter, although I don't know how much I can attribute to my epilator. Unfortunately, I can't find it at any of the local stores anymore and fear they may have discontinued it.

Concealers - Neutrogena - 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes

I don't use this for under my eyes- it's just too thick - but it's perfect for concealing zits. The yellowish base evens out redness and the consistency is thick enough to cover acne. So I hate having to use it, but it always works well. Because this product is so thick, I recommend using a makeup sponge to apply -- it helps even it out a bit.

Pressed Powders - Too Faced - Absolutely Invisible

Jun/16/2008

In order to avoid product overload do NOT use the included sponge - use a brush instead. I learned this the hard way. The color of Absolutely Invisible is a good match for my pale skin, but I would recommend this for most people. It isn't really invisible.

This powder keeps my skin matte for hours - and that's saying something. I don't think any of the vitamins can …

Lipstick - Dior - Dior Addict Ultra-Shine Sheer Lipcolor in 570- Shiniest Raspberry

This is practically hot pink on my pale skin. I probably shouldn't wear it, but I get tired of wearing sheer copper-pink glosses all of the time.

The texture of this glosstick (don't know how else to characterize it) is so creamy and moisturizing and light, I feel as though I'm wearing a gloss. However, it packs more pigment and more staying power. If your lips are on …

Jun/15/2008

No. Just no. This doesn't define my lashes so much as cake them in a black liquidy goo that I have to wipe with a tissue in order to fine my lashes again. Why does Maybelline have such inconsistent quality in its mascaras? Great Lash is horrible, horrible awful flakey nightmare. Full & Soft is beautiful and better than many department store mascaras. Define A Lash is misnamed and gooey …Read more

Eyeliner - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Eyes - Bronze 10L

Beautiful gold-copper with slight shimmer. Make Up For Ever is a serious, high-quality, high-pigment line in general and this liner is no exception. I have the tiny pencil from the 4-pack and it's lasted me many many months. It glides on very smoothly and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. The eyeliners from MUFE are the best I've used.

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Baked

Jun/15/2008

Really pretty dark copper color with a bit of shimmer. The fact that this is coppery without being red is impressive. Of all the 24-7 Glide-On pencils I've tried from Urban Decay, I have to say this one glides on the best. I'm not really sure why the others don't glide on as well, though.

But break out your serious eye makeup remover for this eyeliner or you'll be …

What a refreshing ingredient list -- nothing but Deionized Water, Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Glycolate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Comfrey, Indian Plantain, Vegetable Hydrolysate, Amino Acids, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

True, there are parabens. But the first four ingredients are water, glycolic, more glycolic and hyaluronic acid. I don't know the actual …
