Top/Base Coats - Beauty Secrets - Moisturizing Base Coat

3.0

Mar/08/2009

This is a $5 product available at Sally's as part of the stores "home" line. It is toulene and formaldehyde free and has a scent that is not too overwhelming. While it is very moisturzing and is great for unhealthy nails, it causes the worst, nail color chipping ever. To say that another way, after you put on whichever nail color you want, it chips/flakes off between 24-48 hours …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Unlisted Brand - Walgreens Skin Essentials

Mar/02/2009

I've tried a ton of eye makeup removers at every price point. This for $3 at Walgreens, is a pretty good deal. I wasn't expecting much when I got it, but was pleasently surprised. It has no scent, it's oil free and has gentle ingredients. Some negatives to be aware of - it does take a few seconds to work. You'll want to saturate a cotton square then place it on the lid …Read more

Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

Great product - gets rid of face and eye makeup (not waterproof) and leaves skin feeling great. I will not get this again, however, because the smell is horrible! It's meant to smell like cucumbers, but really smells like grim death. Consider yourself warned.

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Biotin (All brands)

Feb/16/2009

Biotin is the recommended natural supplement for nail and hair care and I started taking it awhile back with stunning results. My nails were immediately strengthened and my hair was a bit stronger as well (though this took longer to see than the nails). I was taking about 4,000 mcg per day, short of the advertised of 5,000 mcg a day, but much more than the average person would consume in a …Read more

Mascara - Besame Cosmetics - Gingerbread 1930's Waterproof Mascara

Feb/08/2009

Awhile ago I ordered from Besame, but never tried this mascara. Now that I'm on a no buy, I can't rebuy my fav (Clinique) and instead shopped my stash. This is a very lightweight mascara that provides great length, but no so much volume, making it perfect for daytime wear. It's not dramatic, just natural and would be perfect on those …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Red Hot Creme Nail Color

Vibrant cream red - great color. It looks great, but you'll want to wear a good, protective top coat with it. Also, the brush in the bottle is loooong and awkard to work with - still totally worth it. Lovely for Valentine's Day or a vampy-oh-no-you-didn't night out.

Toners - Neutrogena - Pore Refining Toner

Feb/06/2009

Great product that contains blemish and anti aging treatments. My HG toner was recently discontinued and I can't believe that I found a replacement. I'm not big on drugstore items, but this one is fantastic and does better than many expensive toners that I've tried. It has a slight medicinal smell that quickly goes away. The top is quirky to work with and you can easily get too …Read more

Powder - Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Pressed Powder

5.0

Jan/26/2009

SPF 15 (not 25) Absolutely great product. It provides a light and...well...flawless finish on skin with minimal problems. This is not meant to be a foundation, but rather something to fill in in imperfections you might have. This lays on my skin without sinking, which sounds bad, but what it means is that instead of sinking into my rather larger pores, it goes over them like a sheet on a …Read more
