Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - One-Step Hair Dryer & Voluminizer

5.0

9 months ago

I was really skeptical when I got this brush as a present from my SO. I'm mixed ethnicity with curly 3b/c hair. My regular process to get loose waves takes a minimum 45 minutes. I used this dorky looking, not-made-for-chicks-like-me brush, not knowing a thing about it, not watching a single tutorial.... and it cut my drying time by 20 minutes. Not only that, I was able to use fewer products …Read more

Cleansers - Sephora Collection - Supreme Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2017

The new version, in yellow, no longer contains mineral oil.

I was looking for a cheaper oil cleanser than Boscia, which has increased their price yearly it seems. This is under 20 USD.

At first, I had my doubts with the strong (though not unpleasant) fragrance and the thinner viscosity than I'd previously used... but I was pleasantly surprised.

I use 2 pumps …

Masks - LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask

Jun/19/2017

I love this product, though I expect it to get more expense as it's been picked up by a well known makeup retailer. Ahem.

It says "mask" but I use this on the daily, morning and night, and I have combo skin. In the AM, I mix it with other products and water, since I get oily. At night, I apply a layer, wait for absorption, then apply another. You would think this would …

Moisturizers - Boscia - Tsubaki Beauty Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2015

Being fairly new to the beauty oil scene (had only used cleansing oils before), I used this at first as an additive to my nightly heavy-moisturizing routine. Not bad. But nothing to write in my diary about either. When I became pregnant, I started looking for ways to streamline a routine and use fewer products (money and time will soon be two commodities that I'll want to save). I tried this …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Dermalogica - Ultra calming serum

1.0

I almost never give a one-star, but the only calming thing about this product was the scent. I noticed zero redness reduction. I agree that a good splash of cold water (infuse it with lavender if you like) is way more effective and will set you back far less money.

Masks - Juice Beauty - Green Apple Peel Full Strength

Mar/20/2015

This is advertised as pregnancy safe (though yes, your doc will be more reliable than some random internet blurb). I thought it might be a bit wimpy as a result, but nope, it definitely gets a reaction from my skin. The tingle was definitely noticeable, and the glow after subtle. I use this about once a week and it's kept me clear. Any more than that is too much and usually results in a …Read more

Styling Products - Matrix - Oil Wonders Flash Blow Dry Oil

5.0

Mar/20/2015

I'll admit that I was surprised that I liked this product so much. I have so much curly, fine hair, that drying can be an hour easily. This reduced it to about 40-45 minutes, sopping to coiffed. Now I have used other lotions, gels, and sprays that can do this, but typically it's at the expense of my hair. This product does contain alcohol and cones, but unlike other formulas, it …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

Dec/05/2014

It didn't take me long to fall in love with this product. I have pretty thick brows, but there's always a bald spot or two to contend with… It's hard enough to find a shade that doesn't look artificial with my dark hair, but the ash shade works beautifully. This pencil will get right to the skin and the lines stay precise, yet subtle. No waxy, coated, or smudgy look… it's …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Philosophy - Total Matteness Oil-Free, Mattifying Pore Eraser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2014

Philosophy has gently plied me until I part with more and more money, and Total Matteness is just another thing I now can't live without. I'm pretty damn oily, and it's not even summer yet. This worked both under and over makeup. Under makeup, it acted liked a primer and helped with application and staying power. Over makeup, I could use it to touch up areas midday without moving …Read more

Lipstick - Too Faced - La Creme Lipstick - Taffy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2014

You've probably already heard about the formula by now: super moisturizing, creamy, lemon-cake scented wonderfulness. You'll have to reapply every couple of hours, but it goes on like a balm only better. I like that I can apply this without a mirror-- just swipe and blend with a finger along the lipline to blur it out. Taffy is light, but I wouldn't call it nude (at least not on …Read more
