Scrubs - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Microdermabrasion in a Jar

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I have 35 year old acne-prone skin. Normally I only have hormonal breakouts, but this stuff caused me to break out with white heads and cystic pimples. I didn't change or add anything in my skincare routine other than this, so that's how I know this was the culprit.

<p>

It scrubbed very well, but left a film on my skin that I had to wash off afterwards. I …

Shampoo - Bumble and bumble - Sunday Shampoo

Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I have oily hair, and have been through many high-end shampoos looking for the right one. I have tried (with success) B&B Tonic shampoo and Terax bosco shampoo. I assumed because this was a clarifying shampoo that it would be good to treat oily hair, but my hair got oily within a few hours, as usual. I tried this for between colorings and it works just the same as the drugstore brand I …Read more

Other - Boscia - Fresh Blotting Linens

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

These have been my staple blotting tissues for a few years. I used to use other brands, like MAC and clean n clear, but Boscia does the best job in keeping my oil-free for longer periods of time. After I used the clean n clear, I got oily within 30 minutes. I just stocked up on these when Sephora had them on sale for $5 recently. I would still pay $10 for a pack, though. I have them in every …Read more

Body Scrubs - Diana B. Beauty - All Sugar Scrubs

I have this scrub in Maple Sugar Lychee Nut. I love foody scents, which is why I purchased this unsniffed, but it really isn't that foody smelling. Its slightly sweet and slighly floral/nutty. Not what i was expecting, but I ended up liking the scent.

<p>

I like that this scrub exfoliates very well without being oily whatsoever. I recommend taking a shower with …

Mascara - shu uemura - Mascara Basic [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

This has been my go-to mascara for many years now. I tried dozens of other mascaras through the years (all of the Diors, Chanels, the other Shu Uemuras, Guerlains, LM, Lancome, etc) and this is my favorite because unlike the others, it never affects my contact lenses or causes eye irritation, it never smudges or melts in the heat, and it stays on in the ocean. It's not too dramatic, but it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - RevaleSkin Night Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I have been using this for 4 months now, and I'm still on my first bottle. I use one pump/night of this green cream to cover my face and neck. I bought this because of its claim to help rosacea/red skin. I don't have rosacea, but my skin is just naturally red on my whole face, and I wanted to tone down that redness without having to wear full coverage makeup all the time. After …Read more

Body Scrubs - Red Flower - Ohana gingergrass bamboo scrub

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I like the red flower coffee scrub, so I decided to try this. I agree with another reviewer that it feels like sawdust in liquid. To me it also feels like a very fine grained sand in non-greasy liquid. I definitely like that this isn't greasy, so cleaning out the tub is easy. But this stuff can get really messy no matter how hard I try to not be messy. In the bath tub I don't like …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Matte Stain for Lips - Cabernet [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/23/2010

I was lucky to find this about 2 years ago at my CCO. I love this color on my NC20/25 skin. Beautiful reddish-brown on my lightly pigmented lips. I gave this baby the ultimate test when I used it while swimming in the ocean...and throughout all that salty water, it stayed put an hour later after I checked my makeup. I put this on in 2 layers with my fingers, just dabbed it on. After I let it …Read more

Toners - Unlisted Brand - Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I'm on my 4th or 5th bottle of this. I love this toner because it doesn't interfere with the ingredients of my other skincare products that go on after the toner (revaleskin coffeeberry cream nights/amore pacific or la mer gel cream days). I agree with the other reviewers...let the toner dry on your skin for about a minute before you apply anything over it. I love the easy to use …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Blemishes No More Intensolution

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2010

I am 35 years old and have hormonal breakouts, so I was looking to replace my juara toner with something more for acne. This sounded right up my alley, but after trying it at home for one month, I haven't noticed any improvements in my hormonal breakouts. It smells like your average drugstore brand alcohol-based toner, and the bottle is big and clunky for a small amount. I wouldn't …Read more
