Jan/01/2015

I've tried lots of oils over the years, from the high end blends (Clarins, Decleor) to the low end pure oils (Desert Essence, NOW foods), and they were all serviceable at moisturizing--except for jojoba for me, which seemed to just sit on top of my skin and never sink in. Although, I thought it was good until I tried argan oil. I initially got this to use on my processed, dry, fine colored …Read more

Jan/15/2012

I've never written a shampoo review because I am usually so underwhelmed by shampoos in general...usually, for me, they're either too drying (in the case of most sulfate ones) or they don't really cleanse (in the case of sulfate-free ones). This is by far the only shampoo that's ever worked so well for me that I would feel compelled to write a review.

For one, I …

Initially I didn't like this product, but that was before I highlighted my hair with blonde...again. Now that it's back to being somewhat damaged by bleach, I LOVE this stuff (it was really too heavy for healthy hair, because my hair is so fine.)

Ingredients: Cyclomethicone, Decamethylcyclopentasiloxane, C12 15 Alcohol Benzoate, Silk Amino Complex, Shea Butter, Coconut Milk …

Since I ran out of my Alpha Hydrox last month, and my local Walgreens don't seem to carry their version of AH anymore, I saw this on the shelf and picked up the 4.9 fl oz tube. It seems to be intended for body use but I checked out the ingredients, saw the pH of 4.5 (which is the same as AH) and the other ones like mineral oil and glycerin, which my dry and sensitive skin loves …Read more

I loved this when it was Skinlights too. In fact, I think I may have some old skinlights lurking around under the bathroom sink--better throw that away!!! I wore the Pink Light in my engagement photo and my skin just GLOWED. I do not know why these companies insist on changing--in this case, just the name--of these products. If it aint broke, don't fix it. (See: Nivea creme, Pond's cold …Read more

Oct/12/2010

Since Wella decided to discontinue Wellite (BOOOOOO! I cried when they discontinued Speedlite, an even superior bleach, about 10 years ago), I've been on the search for an equivalent.

Can't get this from Sally's but I get mine from Ebay and have purchased both the Oil Cream mixed (on the scalp and gentle) and the Multi-blonde powder (which is a blue powder). The last …

I've used every self tanner to come across the market in the last 20 years that they've been around. I mean every one, Clarins, EL, Clinique, L'Oreal, Hawaiian Tropic, Jergens, etc. Previously, L'oreal sublime had been my favorite. Until I tried this Banana Boat.

The color is AWESOME. It's not orange, and it's not sparkly. It doesn't sting my skin or …

I just did my hair with Shades 3V (Dark violet brown) the other day and I LOVE it. It's the exact shade I was looking for--darkish brown with a violet tint, but not a screamin at ya Manic Panic kind of purple. Just a hint of violet and a super shiny dark brown. Application is 1:1 with the low volume developer, which I didn't check when I ordered but I believe is below 10 volume, for …Read more

I got this yesterday from EBay...a great price on the 2.7 ounce bottle. I like it a lot, especially the bottle, but it's driving me crazy--it smells exactly like something from my past that I can't put my finger on! Incense? The bottles of myrrh that the hippies used to sell in the hallway at my college? It's definitely something other than vanilla. Cedarwood? Someone pm me please …Read more
