Scrubs - Unlisted Brand - Goop Skincare Exfoliating Instant Facial

Apr/12/2017

I've tried this product three separate times, leaving it on for 2-5 minutes at night, and each time I get the exact same result — no burning during the peel, no bright red face immediately afterward, like everyone else seems to get. Just silky smooth skin immediately after rinsing...and bumpy cheeks the next morning. Basically my cheeks feel like sandpaper by the next morning, and it's …Read more

I don't find this particularly moisturizing; I use it more as a styling aid than as a conditioner.

I have fine, straight, highlighted shoulder-length hair. I wash it 2-3 times/week with Alterna moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and it's in fairly good condition. But it tends to lose body a few hours after I blow it dry and generally looks limp and straggly by the end of a …

Crème - Laura Mercier - Silk Creme Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/31/2009

This product is mediocre. Its lasting power is not great, even over primer, though if you never touch your face it should stay on. The color options are also nothiing to get excited about—at least, for me. I have light skin with neutral/yellow undertones that, since I've started taking Accutane, has also developed some pink. Apparently, it's much more difficult to match my skin tone …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush [DISCONTINUED]

May/09/2009

I owned the new version (3-speed w/body brush attachment) for about 3 weeks. I returned it today, though, because it only holds a charge for 4-5 days, it's large and heavy, and I did not notice a huge difference in my skin.

Granted, I only used it for a few weeks. While it's possible I was going through the "purge" phase — I am recovering from a bad breakout that …

I got this in coral, have fair warm-toned skin. It was a *beautiful* color on me, very fresh and spring-y and I got a few compliments. But—I like a natural look, and though the glittery flecks in this are small, they are present, and several times a day I looked in the mirror and felt like I had way too much makeup on (because of the glitter; I'm totally not used to it). I returned this and …Read more

Moisturizers - Arcona - Magic White Ice

Jan/28/2009

Love. Love! I'm on my 3rd bottle of this stuff and have never been happier. Along with other Arcona products, it leaves my combo/oily, acne-prone skin glowing, without any redness, soft, never dry. I use less than 1 pump on my entire face, including eyes. So many other moisturizers either break me out or leave my skin feeling oily, and this has done neither. It sinks into the skin almost …Read more

Cleansers - Arcona - Toner Tea Bar

Jan/28/2009

I'm at the end of my second bar, and love this stuff! I have oily/combo, acne-prone skin. From the start, this decreased redness in my skin, never dried my skin, removed all makeup, never stung my eyes, can be carried on a plane (hurray for solid cleansers!)...and may have helped keep my acne at bay. It's no miracle worker, but the above qualities are everything I look for in a …Read more

Jan/28/2009

I am conflicted about this foundation, but not because of the product itself, which I love—the packaging is horrible!

The product: sheer to medium coverage, not the greatest color selections, but "conceal" works for my fair skin (Prescriptives Ecru). I have oily skin that breaks out easily, and this has not made me break out in the few weeks I've been wearing it. It …

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Tourmaline Featherweight/Travel Hair Dryer (Original and Bespoke versions)

Jan/28/2009

I don't understand why there is only one review category for 2 products, but: I'm reviewing the full-sized Featherweight dryer.

I owned the T3 Evolution dryer for several years before deciding to try something else. I went to the Elchim 2001 for a month, returned it, and tried the T3 Featherweight. I have never been happier with a hair dryer! The Evolution was good, but the …

Hair Styling Tools - T3 - Evolution

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/28/2009

This is a great dryer, if you can afford it. I owned it for 3-4 years before trying a new dryer, and it still worked wonderfully—dried my very fine hair in about 3 minutes, never tangled my hair, and had plenty of speed/temperature options. Nice, long cord...

...and costs $300. I finally decided to try something a bit cheaper, just to confirm that the Evolution was worth its jacked-up …
