Lip Treatments - Chapstick - Total Hydration Moisture & Tint: Merlot

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2017

This is a wine/burgundy/dark red tint that is my new favorite lippie. There are many positive points to discuss (at least, positive in my book)! It has no flavor/scent for those who are sensitive. It is not drying and stays comfortable while on the lips. It is not waxy like traditional Chapstick, more of a smooth, nonsticky balm. It is not glossy or shiny. The color is gorgeous and flattering …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor

3.0

Dec/25/2016

This is a gel lipstick in a slimline case that costs about $9 (without coupons or sales). It feels comfortable upon application and stays that way - it doesn't "set" or dry out my lips after a few hours. It doesn't improve my lips after wear but then again, it's not a treatment. It does provide a light stain in the shade I got (Vineyard). It has a strong, artificial …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - PINROSE Secret Genius

I cannot really speak to the packaging since I tried a sample. I agree with the first poster. Smells like cheap drugstore body spray. Chemical, sickly sweet without any nuance. Doesn't even really smell very gourmand to me.

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2016

This is a skin-evening/blurring serum-like liquid that provided a satin finish over my physical sunscreen. It kept me from having the pasty look without looking made-up. It provides minimal coverage but is meant to improve, not perfect skin and I think it does.
The bottle lets you squeeze out a few drops at a time to keep you from getting too much product, which is great.
The …

Hair Color - Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color

4.0

Apr/21/2016

As with many things in life, there are positives and negatives to this hair color. If there were one perfect hair color for everyone, then nobody would use anything else and the world would be much more boring.
That being said, this color (medium golden blonde) suits my current needs fairly well. I am pregnant, looking for something to blend away the numerous grays in my medium/dark blonde …

Mascara - Neutrogena - Healthy Lengths

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2016

My HG mascara (CG Lash Blast Length) was discontinued but this makes a great replacement!
The tube is slender and space-saving in your bathroom. It applies easily and clump-free with a brush that manages not so smear mascara on my lids, even when doing the inner and outer corner lashes which is something I often have problems with. It provides length and definition in a natural …

No discernible scent.

Has some nice skincare ingredients.

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Skinfix Gentle Eczema Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2015

This is a thick cream that looks like a paste but emulsifies when you rub it in. It leaves a bit of a white cast (probably the zinc) but after applying it to my itchy, itchy legs not only did they no longer itch but they actually look better overnight - less red and the scratch marks are healing over. They also feel much softer. There was no stinging or irritation upon application. It …Read more

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2015

I used to use the PC body butter on top of my moisturizer in the winter to hydrate my very dry, sensitive skin and it worked fine but this is even better. It is full of soothing, hydrating ingredients with no acids, retinol, fragrance or color. It is a thick cream in a squeeze tube that stands on its cap - easy to dispense and store. It is non-greasy and matte. I actually wish it were a bit …Read more

Deodorants - Desert Essence - Tropical Breeze Deodorant

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/01/2014

I completely agree with the first review. It is really hard to find natural deodorants that work. I know this is not an antipersperant, but I did hope it would help control odor. Nope. Not even a little. It really did seem to make it worse. On the plus side, it didn't badly affect my skin - no itching, rashes or irritation.
