Jul/21/2014

I'm always wayyyy late to the party, and shaving has always been my no-brainer method. Someone mentioned epilators, I started researching, and finally settled on the Braun Silk-Epil 5. Not too fancy, not too basic. There is definitely a learning curve, though it was not very steep for me. I'm fairly pain tolerant, but some time back I got a wax job and ....never again! I braced myself …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - ORIGINS - Leg Lifts

Jul/20/2014

This is a must-have for me, so I am always stocked up. It looks like a "diluted milk gel" and smells really minty. I truly don't mind the scent and do not find it offensive at all. It's pure heaven to put on right after a workout, a shower/bath, or even just to cool down. During desperate times (aka hot flashes) I've been known to rub it on my shoulders, neck and arms …Read more

Crème - Paula's Choice - RESIST Instant Smoothing Anti-Aging Foundation

Jun/12/2014

Wanna try a sample of this for free?? (Well, almost free) Just take a bit of LARD, add a couple drops of tint, and dab! That's exactly what this will feel like. It's a terrible foundation, I don't know what Paula was thinking putting this out. It's heavy & greasy, barely covers anything, and it made my face sweat! Yukkkkkkkk I couldn't wait to wash it off! JUST say …Read more

Scrubs - ORIGINS - Refreshing Scrub Cleanser

I was quite a bit disappointed in this scrub. I though for sure it would leave my skin squeaky-clean and exfoliated, but nope. It does an okay job of cleansing, but there's few Jojoba and Carnauba Wax scrubbies/beads and contrary to its premise, my skin does not feel "awake" or look quite as radiant as they claim. The scent is to die for, as it contains a 100% natural essential oil …Read more

Powder - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Dual Wet & Dry Foundation

Apr/24/2014

Having looked high and low for a good powder foundation (see all my past reviews) I *finally* *finally* found this little gem. My coloring is NC30/35 and Cypress Beige was an excellent match. While I don't think this would be a longer lasting powder (8-10 hrs), it has worked for me for the duration of 5-6 hours. I have very oily & fickle skin, and many oil-free and shine-free products …Read more

Apr/24/2014

At first, I thought I'd love these and that they'd be a good competitor for the title of *best* (which is Shiseido right now -but $$$). They are very good, however, they feel "soapy" like you'd still need to rinse afterwards, so what's the point? They're very nice sized, large, unlike most others. The smell was a bit of a turn off for me, these are heavily …Read more

This foundation is really disgusting; I honestly don't know how anyone can like it. I bought shade 320 (I think) & tried many times to make it work. For one, it hardly covers *anything* at all, so what's the point? Also, to me it feels gross, too siliconey - yuckkkk. Whatever's there wears off very quickly and leaves a greasy, patchy mess. I never throw makeup away, I either …Read more

Jul/22/2013

I wanted to like this product SO bad. I'd been lemming it for quite awhile, and finally bit the bullet. I chose light/medium for my NC30-ish coloring, because I'd read that the darker one oxidizes into orange. This one offers very little coverage. I got a compact with very little of the "white" flecks, mine's almost all shaded so I'd expect it to cover more, but …Read more

May/24/2013

I am truly blown away by this product, so much so, that I am considering ditching foundation altogether and using only this for the rest of my life, lol. There are only three shades, light, medium, and deep, but as is typical with Clarins, the shades run light so I went with Deep for my NC35 skin. Although it is just a bit dark for me, I'll be able to use it during summer when I'm just …Read more

I don't know how people are getting good results; this was a major FAIL for me. First, I could hardly stand how sticky, slimy, and gross this feels. Who could stand it long enough to see if it works?? If I was able to leave it on for a couple hours, all I saw was that the lesions or acne would dry out. But I can get that same result with a $6 pimple cream from the drugstore. I did see a tiny …Read more
