GENIUS. I do deep glycolic peels fairly regularly and have taken up to two weeks to fully heal in the past. Red, dry, flaky, you know, the usual. Not grotesque, just not cute. With this stuff, I'm good to go in around four days. I slather on at night and wake up glowing. I get it on Amazon and have had free shipping before but of course, like all things Amazon, that changes all the …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Naked

Aug/30/2014

It's only okay for me. I don't have any nozzle issues (I do rinse under hot water after using, per another review) and it still has all its pressure, but I don't see the freshly washed look like others do. It does give me a bit of texture though so I sometimes use it on clean hair if it's too slippery to stay put and I don't want the stickiness of hairspray. For that …Read more

Love this stuff. I use it as an eyeliner for some subtle defintion, BUT, its real genius for me is on my EYEBROWS.

Yes, it's a brilliant, perfect shade to give my brows definition and it LASTS. I use my finest, stiffest lining brush to apply, then blend with a spoolie, clean up the edges, and finish with a fixative of some sort. (currently just hairspray on a spoolie till I can …

Day use only!

It's fantastic for use during the day for me and actually is a terrific primer under foundation/concealer.

But, if I use it at night, I wake up with drier skin than eight hours (let's be real: 5-ish hours) previously.

I was trying to find a cheaper alternative to CDLM, as I have been for years, but I don't think it's out there for …

So, I'm not sure if it's the same stuff, as the last review here is from '07, but I found this Daily Defense Moroccan Argan Oil conditioner at the Dollar Store and it's fantastic! I was actually on my way to buy my Renpure argan oil conditioner and thought it was funny that the bottles were similar, so I stopped to give it a sniff and it smelled so good! Not like the Renpure …Read more

Made my eyelashes fall out!!!

I've never experienced anything like this. After using this mascara maybe two or three times, I was shocked to see that at least half of the longer lashes were just GONE. Luckily, my lashes are on the thicker side so I don't have bald gaps, but I definitely have very obvious gaps between longer and shorter lashes now.

SUCKS.

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice 'n Easy - Root Touch Up

Nov/05/2012

My natural color is a mousy brown that pulls reddish in the sun. I currently have it colored a sort of medium chocolate with about 5% red tones added in. I'm also quite gray on my crown - about 40%.

That being said, the Medium Brown shade is a couple shades too light (and doesn't really cover the gray) and the Dark Brown shade is a couple shades too dark, but DOES cover …

Hair Treatments - Carol's Daughter - Monoi repairing hair mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2012

It smells SO amazing and that scent actually lingered in my hair after I'd washed it! Well, just once, but still!

Here's why I won't be buying it again: when it says REPAIRING, it means it. As in, there must be proteins in it (awesome for repairing hair damaged by heat and/or chemicals) and when you do protein treatments on my hair that doesn't need it (I only …

Far and away, the best frizz serum I've ever used. Like other reviews say, you only need a very little, it lasts AGES, and if you are out of luck at TJ Maxx or similar, then Amazon has it for very cheap. Well, not CHEAP, but you know, way cheaper than Ulta or something.

And when people say keep it away from your scalp, they mean it! My hair is long and I generally apply it from …

Hair Treatments - Neutrogena - Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask

Nov/04/2012

So, a few weeks before I used this mask, I'd used Carol's Daughter monoi hair mask when, basically, I didn't need to. My hair isn't damaged at all, but it just smelled SO good, I couldn't resist. And that scent just lingered in my hair through, I swear, washing with other products.

Now, this isn't a Carol's Daughter review, but it is relevant …
