Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

Nov/14/2010

I'm quite surprised but some of the negative reviews posted here recently, since my experience with this lip balm has been quite wonderful. I bought the the tube lip balm at SDM for $3 CAN (on sale) a couple months ago, and I'm happy I did. The tube is made from 50% recycled material, all the ingredients are "natural", including the beeswax, 3 oils and vitamin E. When I …Read more

Love, love, love this straightener ! I've had it for 4+ years ever since it was first introduced into the north american market (after hearing rave reviews from friends in england, also interesting to note that this was the first tourmaline straightener made available to the U.S market). What else can I say then it is the PERFECT straightener for my hair (curly fine 3a hair). It literally …Read more

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Vitamin C Protective Daywear Moisturizer SPF 15

Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2009

I got this in a swap, and I was interested in only because of the purported vitamin C content (which I found out later to be only 1% - its the 17th or 18th ingredient). This fragranced "moisturizer" made my skin break out after 4 or 5 days of use and it made me look incredibly oily. Despite looking like I had slathered on oil, my skin felt very dry afterwards. The spf of 15 is a joke …Read more

A truly amazing product. I've been using this now for almost a year, and my skin truly FEELS healthy. My mom & I both started using this at the same time, and she literally looks 5 years younger (I on the other hand haven't seen THAT much of a drastic change which I attribute to my younger age). I've been using this as my "moisturizer" since my skin texture is fairly …Read more

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Moroccan Oil Treatment

4.0

Jan/25/2009

I've been using moroccan hair oil (which by the way, is NOT a pure oil - look below for ingredients) now for 3 weeks, and while it isn't the be-all-and-end-all of all products, its definitely a good one ! I tend to use a little more product than most of the reviewers here (about a quarter-size worth) on damp hair and it definitely made my hair more managable & thicker in texture (I …Read more

Fragrances - Issey Miyake - L'Eau d'Issey

Dec/18/2008

My fragrance for the past 2 years now - absolutely adore it. It's a very light clean fresh smell - definitely not floral or fruity. I've gotten many compliments on it, and I like the fact that it hasn't saturated the North American markets like some other (britney,jlo,ck) fragrances - makes you feel a little more unique :) Great for the professional environment too - not in the …Read more

Great product - my HG BP cleanser in the morning. I've used this product now for a little over a year, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Just for reference: I have combination-oily, acne-prone, mildly sensitive skin (and allergic to sulfur-containing products).


I had previously used the 3-step Acnefree system but saw no difference in effectivess - so …

Nov/26/2008

Do not purchase this product - I'm kicking myself right now for purchasing this without reading the reviews here at MUA - argh ! I completely agree with almost all the reviews here - complete waste of money. What I can't stand about this product is the unsightly white-pinkish sheen it casts - completely unwearable (even more so for those of us with a yellow undertone). I guess this will …Read more

Moisturizers - Marcelle - Aquarelle Aqua-Matte Hydrating Fluid

5.0

Nov/26/2008

Great for oily skin - I use this almost exclusively during the summer months (not nearly enough moisturizing effect during the other seasons). It has a unique liquid quality to it (somewhat like DDML- but even less so), no fragrance, and simple packaging. One bottle is enough for the summer months for me. And unlike the others here, it did NOT break me out (and I have extremely acne prone skin - …Read more

Definity gives incredible volume - especially the curved bursh model. Best drugstore mascara ever ! I've repurchased this 5 or 6 times already :) Why four lippies then you ask ? Because it tends to clump after 1-2 months :(
