Love love love. Especially for the price -- in fact, I never really considered buying drugstore foundation until I geniusly left my makeup bag sitting on my counter at home when I went on vacation. I went to walgreens to stock up on some cheap basics to last the week and happened to pick up this. I actually took it home, kept using it and have nearly finished the bottle, and will repurchase …Read more

Toners - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Hibiscus Facial Toner

Apr/21/2007

This is one of the better toners I've used. I give it a four only because I'm not sure that it does anything that great for my skin -- there are no ingredients to clear pores, stop breakouts, etc etc etc. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, which is a good thing. I buy it at CVS, and this is one of the few drugstore toners that isn't alcohol based. The first time I used it …Read more

Masks - AVEDA - Tourmaline Charged Radiance Masque

Apr/18/2007

I was given a treatment of this at an Aveda salon (not a facial - my stylist just left it on my face while she detoxed, shampooed, conditioned, and deep conditioned my hair). I noticed no difference afterwards - no real exfoliation, my skin wasn't more glowing, if anything it was greasier and dirty feeling. Which is unusual, since I don't have particularly oily skin and she …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock SPF 45

I couldn't take the scent of this stuff. It is weird, chemical and nauseating. Also, if you have just shaved your legs, this stuff burns like mad. I'm not even sure how this stuff protects from the sun, to be honest, because I returned it to CVS. The sticky feeling and weird smell were too much.

Moisturizers - Merle Norman - delicate balance

This would be a great moisturizer for someone with incredibly sensitive skin. It is basically just a "plain" moisturizer, with no dyes, perfumes, or parabens to irritate, but also no sunscreens, antioxidants, antiirritants, aging or acne fighting ingredients, or anything else. It is also not that moisturizing, it is very very light. I can use other moisturizers just fine so I would …Read more

Feb/25/2007

This is a great, light lotion, just as advertised. I don't use it often enough to know whether it will break me out, but it hasn't caused any short term problems. The only thing is I'm not sure how useful it is for me. I use something heavier at night and I use sunscreen during the day, so I have no real need for a light lotion without SPF. I could see myself using this during …Read more

This is a gorgeous lipstick! One of the first lipsticks I bought and wore, actually, as until recently I was a gloss girl. It is a soft plum, with a touch of shimmer. On my lips it is a perfect YLBB color. I can't repurchase but if I could, I'm still not sure I would, as it is almost the exact color of my lips so I think I would rather try something I could actually see on me. The …Read more

Lip Gloss - mark. - Glow Baby Glow Hook-Up Lip Gloss - Pink Crush

First, I love the texture of these glosses. I dislike sticky lipglosses, even though they wear longer -- I would rather have a gloss that feels nice on my lips and reapply more often. I just wish they came in more colors. I have Pink Crush and Hot, and all the other swatches on the website like variations on nude colors.

This is not a miracle color, though I can see how it is the …

Jan/15/2007

This did protect me well from the sun. I don't tan at all while I'm using it. But, the white cast it leaves is really bad. I have fair skin, yet the white cast is so light that it makes me look sickly unless I'm using full-coverage foundation. It's also not waterproof or sweatproof, so I don't recommend using it for the beach or swimming or exercise. It didn't …Read more
