Dec/16/2010

I think this has made the biggest difference in my skin. I've been using this for about a week in the form of a toner with green tea, aloe, basil, and acv. It has really improved my skin by lightening dark marks, balancing out my skin, reducing breakouts, offering a mild peel, minimizing the appearance acne marks, and reducing redness in my skin. I tried diluted lemon juice only before and …Read more

I own this in the giggleberry scent. It smells so good. I also found this at the 99 cent store so it was dirt cheap. I looked up reviews on MUA before purchasing and figured for the price, it was worth a try. I'm really glad I did because it feels relatively light compared to other sunscreens, it has physical sunblock, and it hasn't broken me out yet. I really love the size of this tube …Read more

This is such a fantastic beauty find! I bought it on a huge fluke at the 99 cent store. For 99 cents, I thought there wasn't too much to lose if I didn't end up liking this. There are two masks in each package. So you get two treatments. I got the Pomegranate (benefits include firming, moisturizing, antioxidant) and Natural Herbal (benefits listed are restoring, purifying, moisturizing) …Read more

Jul/09/2010

So I was reading up on acne and lightening scars and I came across an article that suggested putting milk on the skin as a mask. Well I tried it and I think this is amazing! I haven't used face cleanser in over a week. This stuff is just so great and you can easily find it in your refrigerator so no need to buy something extra. Plus a lot of times, I have leftover milk in the fridge that …Read more

Wow, I had to come here after I saw that it was $25! I cannot believe that it's that expensive. I wonder if they raised the price. I bought this about 3 years ago. I've actually bought this twice so that means I've spent $50 on translucent pressed powder. Yeah, I really cannot believe I'd spend that much. Anyway, this is a great pressed powder which is why I probably bought …Read more

Apr/03/2010

I am kind of in disbelief that this has such high ratings on MUA. I got a sample of this twice. The first time I used it, I didn't like it since it was hard to use. It's pretty difficult to break down into a paste. I ended up getting a different cleanser from Lush. A year went by and I was using different cleansers and came back to Lush one day and a different SA recommended Aquamarina …Read more

Apr/03/2010

I have a love/hate relationship with this. I love that it is both a scrub and a cleanser in one. I hate that it is so hard to wash off! I think this is great for oily/combo skin, it reminds me of Coalface, but it's not as drying and it has the added benefit of having ground charcoal in it to exfoliate your skin. The downside is that the charcoal can be really scratchy. It is also impossible …Read more

I am at a toss-up between whether or not I would actually buy this product. I got it as a freebie from Sephora. I actually really liked this mascara to be honest especially since I didn't pay for it. I'm not sure if I would spend the extra money on this as I am pretty happy with d/s brands and prices. I use Fiberwig mascara as my regular mascara which is great for lengthening but …Read more

If I were to review this 4 months ago when I first started using this I would give it a 5 star review. It was really great in the beginning. The aloe in it really soothed my irritated skin and brought down the redness. The tea tree in it was strong enough on pimples but gentle on skin. After a while, I would say it stopped working. I used this as both a spot treatment and to prevent pimples where …Read more

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Grapeseed Oil

Mar/18/2010

I think I might be a grapeseed convert. Years ago, I was trying to go an all-natural skin routine so I started using olive oil on my acne-prone skin. The thing is olive oil was way too rich for my skin and gave me cysts and breakouts. I stopped using it and my skin started getting better. Flashforward to today, still have the acne-prone skin, but I think it's more under control now. So I …Read more
