Jun/02/2011

I use the unscented version (I'm usually not averse to fragrances but must say I really don't like the scent of this one!) and I absolutely LOVE it! I put it on wet skin right after I get out of the shower and air dry for awhile as I'm washing my face and put on my contacts (I think a previous poster described the same thing.) Then I dry with a towel and put on a scented lotion …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer, SPF 15 Lotion

I really like this product and have bought three bottles so far. Because I use a lot of benzoil peroxide on my face, I add jojoba oil to my moisturizer so I can't comment on the dry tight feeling some others are experiencing. For me this is a very nice moisturizer that's not tool oily and has spf (a must for me.) It smells nice, I love the pump dispenser and my skin feels great after …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Length

Oct/06/2009

I really like this mascara. If I wear it alone, I get soft, natural, long looking lashes. Great for the week-end and a put together look. For a more dramatic look, you simply add a volumizing mascara (original LashBlast is good for this.) The brush is longer than most and skinny. It manages to grab each lash though, even the corner ones and comes out with the right amount of product. As …Read more

Styling Products - Ojon - Tunu Hair Tamer

This product is great for smoothing dry ends and taming frizz, however you do have to be okay with the scent. I'm not very sensitive to scents and I actually like the way it smells, but I can see how it could be very irritating to those with more sensitivity or how some could just plain hate the scent! I find it a strange combination of sweet baby powder and musk with some rich sandlewood …Read more

Oct/03/2009

I really like this product and the consistency when it comes out of the tube - it's creamy and light/fluffy (?) Almost mousse like . . . It smells really good (I think the moisturizing conditioner smells slightly better, but still very similar.) I shampoo my hair, then put the conditioner on and and leave it for the remainder of my shower. When I rinse it off my hair feels very silky and …Read more

Oct/03/2009

First, I have to admit I made the mistake of trying more than one new product at the same time so I can't say definitively which product is making the biggest difference. What I can say is that I am extremely happy with how healthy my hair is right now. I am using the strength restoring shampoo and conditioner, as well as the Ojon Tunu Hair Tamer (which I LOVE btw.) This shampoo smells …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Acne.org - AHA+ (Glycolic Acid - 10%)

May/20/2009

I LOVE this product! I have been following the Clear Skin Regimen from Acne.org for about a month, and my skin has gotten really clear. The problem is that due to the benzoil peroxide it was also very dry and flaky - it felt more like leather than skin! :o I started using the AHA+ every other night at first (so my skin could get used to it), and for a week now I've used it every night. …Read more

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Butterfly Flower

May/11/2009

I tried and really wanted to like this fragrance. I really did - but, it just smelled like old, stale pot-pouritt (sp?). Ick! It's very flower and way to sweet (and I love florals like Daisy, and Michael Kors - so it takes a lot of sweet for me to say it's too much.) It has a thick lingering scent but not in a pleasant way. Fragrance is a really individual thing . . . this one did …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Dream Liquid Mousse

I really like this foundation. It gives a full, dewy coverage and I really felt like my skin looked great. I was lucky to find a good match (always a risk with drugstore foundation), but I applied with a foundation brush and it blended really well. I really like the pump so you don't use too much and I did get a somewhat airbrushed look. I will definitely be repurchasing.

Treatments (Face) - Acne.org - Treatment (Benzoyl Peroxide - 2.5%)

May/03/2009

I have only been using this for one week and I absolutely love it!! I glides easily over my skin and it absorbs invisibly. My skin does get a little red, dry and flaky but that's to be expected (it IS benzoyl peroxide after all . . .) I'm hoping once my skin adjusts to it those effects will lessen. For now, it is really working on my skin - it's completely clear! I love the …Read more
