Cleansers - Garnier - Nourishing Cleansing Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2015

I bought this on a whim from the clearance rack at my local SDM, not expecting much. Although I prefer my facial products to either not have a scent, or have a light natural scent, I will admit this fruity watermelon like aroma was quite nice. To start with, I didn't read the rules. I tried to apply this to already wet skin in the shower and it did not have the same affect as applying it …Read more

Moisturizers - Garnier - Pure Shine Control Moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2015

I wasn't in the market for a new moisturizer when I came across Garnier's Pure shine control moisturizer, but it was on the clearance rack for $2 so I thought why not? I bought 2 just in case it was awesome. Let me start by saying, this does control shine, there is no disputing that. As for moisturization, there is not much, if any of that going on in this product. For me, not that …Read more

Fragrances - benefit Cosmetics - Maybe Baby

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/14/2014

I first came to love Maybe Baby through a number of dupes I tried from different B&B etailers. I looked for the actual perfume high and low locally and nowhere sells it. I eventually ordered it from Sephora (until they stopped selling it). Luckily while visiting my boyfriends family in Alberta (I'm in B.C.) I noticed they sell it at their Shoppers Drug Marts. I was so happy. Now …Read more

Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2014

I bought this moisturizer on a whim when I forgot to bring my usual moisturizer on a little impromptu vacation because it was on sale and it was cheap. It is not overwhelmingly moisturizing, but it isn't drying either. It's great for the summer to layer under makeup as it absorbs fast and dries without a shiny finish. I find it cuts down on my oil during the day as well, no need to …Read more

Fragrances - Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy NOIR

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2014

My bf bought me one of those fragrance samplers where you test out the scents and get a full size of whichever perfume you prefer. I already had Viva La Juicy and loved it, so I was a little disappointed when Viva La Juicy was my pick out of all the scents in the sampler since I was hoping to add something new to my collection. When I went to the store to pick it up they were all out, but asked …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2014

This is one of those scents I've wanted to love forever and have tried to force myself to love, but it just has such a weird burnt plastic dry down and does not work well with my chemistry. It always ends up smelling sour on my skin. It has all the components of a lotion I normally love (sweet, gourmand vanilla), but even in the bottle something is a little off. I've purchased it on …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Temptations Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2014

I've always overlooked Twisted Peppermint in the store because when I'm being bombarded with all the other scents it just never really stood out to me as something I'd want to have on my body. After receiving this as a Christmas gift I was given the opportunity to give this lotion my unbiased opinion without comparing it to everything in the store and I have a new appreciation for …Read more

Conditioner - LUSH - Solid Conditioner - Jungle

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2013

I loved the idea of a solid conditioner to go with my solid shampoo so when my bar of Jungle came in the mail I couldn't wait to hop in the shower and give it a try. First off, I find the smell extremely strong, disgusting and patchouli like. Secondly as soon as I came out of the shower I noticed a warm, burning itchy rash appearing wherever it had touched my skin. Lastly, I didn't …Read more

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Forever Red

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2012

I took a specific trip to B&BW just to try this fragrance and I have to say I was extremely underwhelmed. I mean, it's a nice enough fragrance, but for me kind of generic and one I would definitely pass by in the department store. The cost seems a bit pricey for the lotions etc considering that I could get any of their other lotions for almost half the price. The pomegranate note that …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Cashmere Glow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2012

I have been a huge Twilight Woods fan since day one and Cashmere Glow is so similar that I can't help but love it. Chances are if you love one, you'll love the other. I find Cashmere Glow is a bit softer of a scent and I can really pick up the sweet fruity note of the peach, but I wouldn't say it's a "fruity" scent at all. It's a warm musky spicy peachy …Read more
