Shampoo - Redken - Color Extend Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2006

Maybe I have the older version of this (red translucent bottle, clear shampoo) but it's probably the most useless shampoo I've ever used. I have medium thick, color treated (red) wavy hair and a fairly oily scalp (I have to wash at least every other day even though I wish I didn't need to since it strips the color). Not only does it not lather, which I can forgive since I think …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - Terre d Hermes

5.0

May/30/2006

I just bought this for my DH - on the plane thru duty free! - and I'm so excited to give it to him because I love it...I hadn't thought of using it for myself though I will consider it, because it's true that I can see its being earthy-unisex, kinda like some of the Comme des Garçons... I definitely get the vetiver in it, which I adore - in fact I didn't even know the notes …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/27/2006

It seems to work OK, but only OK...I bought this as a substitute for my Paula's Choice 2% BHA because I was only in the states for a couple of weeks and didn't have time to order it before I got there. (I really wish Paula would get a retail distributor...) Anyway I digress...so I figured this stuff would be about as effective, since it has 2% salicylic acid in it. As I say, it's …Read more

Fragrances - Yves Rocher - Yves Rocher Gardenia Eau de Toilette [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2005

This is the only gardenia fragrance I've ever smelled that isn't too sweet/fake/cloying to me. It smells more green, like the petals of the real flower and its leaves. I will add I have mostly tried the solid perfume, bath gel, and deodorant, but all three are lovely. The staying power is moderate for these three, but I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. For the …Read more

Conditioner - Joico - Color Endurance Conditioner

3.0

Oct/02/2005

This conditioner was just okay on my color treated (red) wavy hair. I don't really know if it helps with color retention because it doesn't moisturize very well so I haven't used it regularly. It doesn't seem to smooth my hair as much as I like from a conditioner or add enough moisture. I gave it to my husband (who doesn't even need a conditioner most days, lucky …Read more

Styling Products - Kérastase - Elasto Curl Mousse

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/26/2005

I share the bewilderment about this product - most Kerastase products have lived up to their claims for me so far, but this one barely did anything. I have color treated, medium thick, wavy hair that curls very easily. However, this only helped the curl slightly and I am not fond of the scent either, which is very alcohol-ey and smells like a much cheaper product! It works a little, hence the …Read more

Conditioner - Rene Furterer - Karite Nourishing Conditioning Cream

3.0

Jul/21/2005

This stuff is just ehhhh...luckily I got it at a pharmacy here in Europe so it was cheaper than in the US, or else I would be more annoyed. I have color treated, past-shoulder-length wavy hair, medium thickness. It tends to frizz, especially in humidity, and this product does not help at all for that. I was hoping for a "pharm" hair product it would moisturize better - it's not …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Sephora Collection - Skin Smoothing Makeup Base [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2005

I love this stuff, especially for summer - it really evens out my skin, and my skin is very oily in the summer (and worse when it's humid, as it has been here in Spain recently) so I figured it would be better to go with the "glowy" look most days instead of fighting it so much...(though it also works well under more matte makeup). Gives a smooth texture, isn't greasy, and …Read more

Lip Gloss - Prestige - vinylwear in varnish

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2004

LOVE the color - very YLBB, rosy peach brown (warm dusty rose?) on me, like a browner version of MAC Ghettoflower Lipglass Stain (my fave pigmented gloss, but was LE!) The smell/taste isn't my fave, but it seems to fade after a bit on me especially if I don't bite my lips (which I shouldn't anyway). It might be enough to keep me from repurchasing, even though the color range is …Read more
