Scrubs - Unlisted Brand - - Vivo Per Lei Facial Peeling

Feb/11/2015

This went directly into the trash after the second use. I bought it for about $25 on the Strip in Vegas (because I am a chump) along with the day cream from the same line, which is actually a decent product. I have rosacea, so scrubs and peels can be tricky. On first use, this stuff exfoliated well enough without irritating my face, but left behind a crop of little plasticky flaky bits along my …Read more

Ok, so I'm an idiot. Was in Las Vegas in January for a trade show and had forgotten to bring my usual night cream (coconut oil) so my skin was super dry. A guy on the Strip was handing out samples of this stuff outside their shop, and ended up dragging me inside where a woman with a terrible breakout and a nonstop sales patter applied some of the eye serum and managed to sell me the day …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Demeter - Holy Water Calming Body Lotion

Jun/24/2012

Back in the late 80's there was a line of upscale kid's bath products called William & Clarissa. This smells exactly like those did: watery and clean with a hint of floral note. I've not tried the Holy Water PMU spray, but the fragrance in the lotion is quite long-lasting, and after applying in the morning after my shower, I got whiffs of it throughout the day. The lotion …Read more

In a hurry and needed a blue mascara, and Target only had 2 brands with a blue shade. The less expensive brand was sold out so I bought this for $19--far too much for the quality. Sticky, clumpy and ridiculously hard to remove.

Hair Treatments - Ojon - Hydrating Thickening Spray

Sep/06/2009

One of the best volumizers I've found for my thinning, baby fine hair (my hair is so thin I can't even use mousse--it just looks limp and dirty). I spritz 3-4 squirts at my roots near the part and finger comb through before blowing dry. Doesn't leave brittle sticky clumps like other volumizers usually do (even B&B Thickening Spray, the only other one I like). The fragrance is …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Ole Henriksen - Invigorating Night Gel

Aug/02/2009

Have been using a Sephora sample for about a week now and actually pretty impressed with this. I have fairly deep "worry " lines in my forehead and between my eyebrows and this is the only product that makes the slightest difference. Goes on a little sticky, and you immediately feel the tightening, but not in a drying, stretchy egg white mask way. My skin still feels soft and not dry …Read more

I used a Sephora sample for several nights and while the product did some nice things for my skin in terms of softening and smoothing, I just could not get past the smell. It was like stagnant water or rotting garbage. It only lasted a few minutes, but yuck. I could also feel a slight burn on my face for a good half hour afterward.

Review for the Root Lifting Spray. An average volumizer that makes my very fine, limp hair a little sticky without adding much lift. The scent is surprisingly masculine.

Treatments (Eye) - Garnier - SkinActive Clearly Brighter Anti-Puff Eye Roller

Dec/17/2008

As far as I can tell after using it for three days straight, this product has no effect whatsoever on under-eye puffiness. I bought it after my mom swore it worked, but then she liked the clear mascara a few years back too. Another disappointment from Garnier, although the roller ball wand is pretty cool.

Fragrances - Avon - Bond Girl 007

Fresh floral peachy opening that quickly settles into a sharp powdery patchouli that's almost unisex. I'm surprised at all the reviews that say it has no staying power because it lasted nearly 24 hours on me. Nice casual weekend scent. Hate the weird bottle top design.
