This is NOT for acne prone skin. I tried it on a whim and while it did improve the dry patches I now have 7 huge nodular pimples all over my face. I stopped using it after 2 days and I stopped breaking out so beware if you have sensitive or acne prone skin.

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

I use the BHA Liquid 2% twice a day, but recently ran out and forgot to reorder. I figured I would use one of the BHA Lotion 2% samples that I recieved in my last order to hold me over until my liquid came in. HUGE MISTAKE. My entire face is covered in extremely painful cysts. I have no idea what aspect of the lotion is breaking me out but 5 new cysts popped up yesterday and another 4 this …Read more

Cleansers - Acure Organics - Facial Cleansing Creme (Argan Oil + Mint)

May/01/2015

This is definitely not for anybody with sensitive skin. I have combo, acne prone, sensitive skin and this cleanser made my skin red/irritated. It also burned my eyes, even if I did not use it around my eyes. It seems to get all my makeup off but makes my skin feel itchy and leaves bumps where I am normally not prone to seeing them pop up. It might be great for normal dry skin, but don't even …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

I have the most combo skin known the man. Half of my face can fry up a mean serving of onion rings while the other side makes me look like i'm shedding my winter coat... every month. So when I am not trying to combat this with skin care, I like to cover up all of my battle scars for work and other professional things. But how can I do that by catering to both ends of the skintype spectrum? …Read more

Apr/11/2015

Really wanted this product to work but sadly it broke my combo acne prone sensitive skin out in very painful small white heads (not my normal variety). The packaging doesn't leak and keeps pads moist, the pads them self didn't leave a sticky residue for me either. Only used it for 2 days before seeing breakouts so I can't comment on whether it actually made a difference in my skin …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Remington - Keratin Therapy 1 ½" Clip-Free Curling Iron

I have thin, stick straight hair. I have been having luck with Nume curling wands in the past, but wanted a larger barrel so that I could make lighter curls. I picked this up at Ulta, and used it the first time to be 100% disappointed. It barely curled anything. I went online and read some reviews - you are supposed to lay your hair flat against this iron. Great, so I tried that earlier and while …Read more

Hair Removal - LUSH - D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap

Aug/10/2014

The packaging of this product is stereotypical LUSH and the awful mini-bucket we all know and hate. You need to overlook this though, this shaving cream is seriously magic. I originally purchased it because I was wandering around the store and was just intrigued as this is a new product. Regardless of the fact that everything at lush looks almost exactly the same, this product sucked me …Read more

Hair Treatments - Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner

Jul/31/2014

I love Aussies spray in conditioner for my thin, straight hair. So I was convinced this would be just as amazing. Sadly this has been awful. I used it yesterday and woke up to the driest most unmanageable hair. It also was coming out in handfuls. I worked it through my hair in the shower and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then rinsed it out. I would never suggest this to anyone. It is cheap but …Read more

I was suppppper skeptical of this product prior to purchasing. I had seen my favorite beauty blogger (Essie Button, haiii) talk about this product and I was desperate for something to clear up these small breakouts I was having around my hairline and chin. This did the trick, and I haven't had any of those breakouts since I started using this!

How I use: Morning and night prior to …

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Naked

May/25/2014

Background: I have super fine, stick straight brown hair. I'm normally oily as anything.

I actually bought this when I was on a trip. They didn't have any other dry shampoos, and no Ulta or TJ Maxx to find my HG Batiste. I figured I would give it a shot and if I hated it I only lost about $5. So let me just paint this picture real fast. I am in Boston, about 30 mins from my …
