Sep/01/2015

Ordered this on eBay based on reviews here and was not disappointed.

Packaging: This comes in a little clear plastic bottle like a shorter version of the genie bottle shape the OG UDPP used to come in and has a doe foot wand with a long handle for good control. Don't know how I would get at the last drops of product as the bottle is rigid though I do suspect that I could …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2013

A holy grail product for really bad zits! I only use these on a freshly washed face and on pimples that have come to a head--I lance them with a sterile needle, gently squeeze out whatever I can (yes, I know it's gross, sorry) and then swab the area with my alcohol-based toner. Once the alcohol has evaporated I slap one of these buggers on and leave it on overnight. It sucks out all the …Read more

Oct/10/2012

Holy moly how have I not reviewed this yet? I love this stuff! But (and a very emphatic BUT) I do not follow the directions when I use this. Let me preface this by saying that my skin is pretty tough and accustomed to being assaulted with salicylic acid and BPO, so my way of using this may not be for you. Anyway....here goes: as written, the instructions tell you to apply the scrubby part …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Tape

Sep/15/2012

This is going to sound horrible and gross but I *love* regular old scotch tape for pulling flakies off my face. I have oily skin that, paradoxically, flakes like crazy if I am not absolutely religious about using a light moisturizer. Often I don't want to do another coat of moisturizer (ex. if I'm at work or if my face has already sucked up all the moisturizer but is still flaky from …Read more

Hair Removal - Ardell - Surgi Wax Brazilian Waxing Kit

Aug/19/2012

Hooooooly moly this stuff is tenacious. The pre-epilation oil is a MUST. I am a veteran of both salon and DIY Brazilians and have been using the MOOM sugaring kit w/muslin strips for over a year now. This blows that stuff out of the water in terms of hair removing ability. I barely ever had to go back and re-do a section unless I had applied the wax improperly to begin with--incomplete …Read more

Styling Products - Got2b - Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/28/2012

Me: AAB NC30, yellow to neutral undertones, oily skin, coarse/thick black hair, darkest brown (almost black) eyes.

Formula, wear, consistency: creamy, thick, off-white leave in conditioning treatment. I have a TON of hair and I use a pump (sometimes a little bit more) every time I wash my hair and that is sufficient. It coats my hair nicely and never leaves it greasy, weighed down …

Eye Primer - LORAC - Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2012

Color: Off-white in the tube; colorless when blended on to lid
Fragrance: None noticeable
Formula, wear, consistency: This stuff is AMAZING. It is thick and creamy but still easy to spread over the eyelid and less drying than UDPP. It is, thankfully, also much less prone to separation than TFSI (no more squeezing out clear goop from your tube) and I find that the staying power it …

Sunscreen - Kiehl's - Super Fluid UV Defense Spf 50+

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2012

Me: NC30ish AAB

Formula, wear, consistency: Thin, runny formula similar to many of the popular Asian "milk" type sunscreens. This must be shaken well prior to use. It spreads easily and evenly over the skin and feels a little greasy at first but sinks in quickly and dries to a matte finish with no white cast. I apply this in the morning to bare skin, wait a minute for it …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

Great, long-wearing cream shadow. Drugstore makeup has come a LONG way since those abysmal Revlon illimunance cream shadows--crease city!! I bought Bad to the Bronze, which pulls quite a bit cooler (almost taupey) on the lid than it does in the pot, perhaps due to the prominence of the silvery shimmers. I have and love MUFE Aqua Cream in #15 Taupe and this is quite similar but with more gold …Read more

Treatments - Blue Cross - Cuticle Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2012

This is amazing. Nothing else I've used has allowed me to degunkify my cuticles as easily and effectively as Blue Cross cuticle remover. It comes in a very nondescript plastic bottle with a flip top (think of the old infusium 23 shampoo bottles) that isn't the best for neat and targeted application of the product but this is so cheap and the bottle is so huge that it really …Read more
