I love this gel. First, you put it in when your hair is sopping wet, hold your head upside down, and scrunch it in. Then, scrunch it up with your special hair towel - forgot it’s official name. Then make sure it’s lying right, and wait for it to dry. For me, it curls right up and even spirals. I have 2B hair. One time a cashier at Ulta asked me what gel I used when I had just used this.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary "Buffet"

Sep/11/2017

So I might have bought too many The Ordinary products, which is easy to do. The concept is, you can wear three serums at night and three in the morning (or up to three). So the problem comes when I try to fit all that on my face. Serum no. 1 at night is the retinoids, no problems there. Many of the others, including The Buffet, have a sticky texture. After you add two like that, there's …Read more

This works for me. Since I've started using it, my need to use concealer is greatly reduced. (I still use it but not as much). I also started the retinoids 2% plus more moisturizing at the same time, so it could be that (though the retinoids hasn't had time to take effect yet). But I think it's this. The first night I put it up close under my eye and on my eyelid - and I woke up in …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Histoires de Parfums 1804

This starts with a very strong pineapple juice smell and then there is a strong patchouli smell. I am sure there is more to it than that but those are the two very striking aspects that made a distinct impression on me. The pineapple is like drinking a glass of pineapple juice - it's a realistic and strong pineapple - which I would be open to, but unfortunately I don't like …Read more

This smells good - it smells like flowers. I am surprised it is tuberose because I thought I didn't like tuberose. Nevertheless, I'm not picking up on what's so interesting about it. Will keep trying.

edited: I have changed it from 3 to 5. I chose to wear it for my Valentine's Day/Anniversary dinner and it was a good one.

Barely there mall fruity floral with a sour tone. Characterless.

Edited: Sometimes my sense of smell is even poorer than at other times, and I was wrong to class this as characterless. It's not that bad. Sort of tart mall fruity floral that's semi-decent.

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Chene

Awful. There are two things it reminds me of: a toy from the early 80s called a Wacky Wallwalker that was a little rubbery octopus that you threw at the wall and it would stick and crawl/tumble down while sticking to the wall. And it had a disturbing smell. And this smell also reminds me of a cantaloupe or honeydew if you take all the fresh, fruity or sweet aspect out and just leave the …Read more

This smelled like grape soda or candy and I laughed out loud. Smell again ... Not quite grape but that's the closest ... I nice smelling grape, possibly flowers behind it? I focused my mind on thinking of cedar and can sort of feel it ... Grape cough drop.
