Could this be the zinc oxide sunscreen of my dreams? I think it is! I'm now well into my second tube and the love continues... Unlike every other zinc oxide sunscreen I've tried, this is not greasy. If you're not a fan of silicones, you'll want to to pass this one up. As for me: I love and prefer their texture, as opposed to the oils that are typically used in zinc formulas …Read more

I picked this up at BBW recently, as I thought it might make a good dedicated cuticle treatment. As a massage therapist, it's especially important for me to keep my hands as soft as possible. Since I must keep my nails so short, the skin on the sides my nails become calloused. I hoped that this would soften them up. It didn't. In fact, it left the skin around my nails dried out and in …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

May/02/2012

Tried this due to it being reasonably well rated mascara, here. I'm no longer impressed by Voluminous and was looking for something that wouldn't smudge or flake, yet would would amp up my short, thick eyelashes. After about three weeks use, I'm ready to try something else. This flakes like mad and sometimes causes eye stinging (probably due to the alcohol denat). It doesn't …Read more

If you're looking for an AHA treatment, I highly recommend this one-especially if you're clog-prone. While I do like Alpha Hydrox's 10% Enhanced lotion, it can (like just about any moisturizer) give me clogged pores, especially with continued use. So I appreciate that I can simply rinse this off with a few splashes of water. I can imagine that this would be a plus for anyone using …Read more

Sunscreen - Ducray - Melascreen Latte Solare SPF 50+

The task of finding a cosmetically elegant, avobenzone-free, fragrance-free, and high PPD sunscreen has proven to be a daunting one. As with so many other women, my experiences with SPF moisturizers gave me unrealistic expectations. I’ve since learned that a product providing adequate UVA protection will impart one or more of the following: greasiness, dryness, stickiness, a white cast, and …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/23/2011

Though I have been using this for quite some time, I can't say it's an HG cleanser (that title belongs to Paula's Choice Skin Recovery). This, however, is readily available and far more affordable. I do appreciate that this is fragrance-free as well. That said, I don't like the gooey texture, nor the excessive lather that this produces. I also find that it fails to effectively …Read more

Fragrances - Paris Hilton - All Products

Feb/19/2011

Bought a little bottle of this one day on a whim. Since it was purchased from Wal-Mart, I wasn't able to test it out before purchasing. I figured that being Paris Hilton fragrance, it was sure to be a sugary sweet (and I adore sweet). Even other reviewers describe it as being "sweet" and "fruity". Unfortunately, my nose detects more heavy floral than anything (albeit …Read more

I would have never purchased this myself, but it was included in a $10 deal our local Walgreens had going on and was purchased for me by my sweet mother. I pretty well knew that all of the products included in the bundle would be fails, but mother was so convinced of the deal, I went along.
First off: the whole True Match "technology" pitch is a crock. Even if it were possible …

Nov/19/2010

Like countless others, I saw Lady Gaga's Vanity Fair cover and fell in love with the greigy look. After pursuing the boards and later my local Walmart, I settled on Steel Grey. I really like the grey but brown but slightly purple shades and this looked like a good bet. I was so excited to try it on, but my excitement soon turned to frustration. I found that application was a nightmare. This …Read more
