Mascara - Maybelline New York - SNAPSCARA Washable Mascara

7 months ago

I had great expectations for this mascara with all the ads with Gigi Hadid (in Canada) and all but I returned it for a refund, at Walmart, after 2 uses. The brush is huge and clumsy, the mascara clumps when applied and it flakes once dry. The worst thing I ever bought. For much cheaper, I can buy Great Lash; I like the smaller brush, with no clumping and no flaking.

I was starting to get really saggy skin under my eyes when I bought this based upon MUA reviews. Thanks everyone as it lifted my sagging skin in barely a week. Only a very tiny speck is needed for both eyes. At that rate, the bottle will last me a long time. I was kind of hesitant when I saw the price but it came on sale at SDM at around $26. Will repurchase!

Cleansers - Bioré - Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

Worked really good for the first few weeks but started, or should I say restarted, getting clogged pores. I'm using Nivea as a first wash, this one last and use a salicylic acid moisturizer on problem areas. It irritates my skin on the cheeks now. Will stop using twice a day.

Cleansers - Derma E - Sensitive Skin Cleanser with Pycnogenol & Aloe Vera

Tried this product after reading the mostly favourable reviews on this site. Cleans very well but leaves my skin so dry and tight that I have to apply heavy duty hand cream to make my skin supple again.

Edit. Nov. 16, 2014: I mix a very small drop of EVOO with my Derma E pycnogenol moisturizer and my skin is so soft and supple! I used the hand cream (above) because I had nothing else …

Not a good product in any categories I've tried. How can stars endorse that crap?

When Pantene came out 30 years ago, it cost $5-$6 for a much smaller bottle than today and it was quality ladies. (or thought so at the time)😊 It deteriorated since then. Later on, I asked a woman at work who had such lushy and healthy hair what shampoo she used and when she said …

Used this product for about 3 years with great results until about 6 months ago. It made my skin tight and dry, which was followed by an increase in sebum production. I have combination skin; I need to wipe down my forehead a few times during the day and I don't wear anything on my face except a light moist. & pressed powder. Switched to the lighter, creamier cleanser in the same family …Read more

Love the smell. It's not that moisturizing (I have normal skin). I got samples in an Hampton hotel and I've been looking for some ever since. I've read here that's it's been discontinued. I hope not! I still wear it, it's not winter yet, because I love the smell so much. I can take a slow sniff on my arm and I'm in 7th heaven. Any tips of where to find some? I …Read more

My essential. Your armpits must be clean and dry before application. Tip of the stick must be moistened with water before being applied. I have to do about 5 back and forth, wait 1 minute (the time it takes to do the other pit) and do it again. Works all day, night and the next day. I'll wash it off after a vigorous, sweaty workout because I know it's dirty under there, not because …Read more

Tried the brown and love it. Takes longer to apply but it stays put all day at work or at the beach. I'm not scared of raccoon eyes when taking a nap. For consistent results, do not wash the brush. After each use, I wipe it off on a Kleenex until no color remains on the tissue. I do this by painting the Kleenex back and forth. Being a "wash everything" kind of person, I did not …Read more
