great little product that i bought many months before actually trying. huge mistake. this is really great. you pat (PAT NOT RUB as others point out) this magical white powder on top of your makeup and while your makeup remains undisturbed, the shine disappears!! i also really like this for evening out wear over the course of the day (such as after wiping my nose or eating lunch) …Read more

Cleansers - Equate - Skin Cream with Eucalyptus Oil

2.0

5 months ago

i was looking for a cheap and effective makeup remover/cleanser and noxzema is a classic - but i didn't even want to pay as much as that (i do wear a lot of makeup, and a minimum of five days a week at that). this was definitely a case when a generic dupe would serve my purpose.

while my mother had an old tub of noxzema that she used to remove my halloween face paint as a kid, i …

Lotions/ Creams - Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand + Body Lotion

for some reason i've never caught on to the concept of travel sizes (in spite of always being on the go) but the travel size aisle in my favorite grocery store is where i found this lotion. the two-ounce tube was $.69, so a perfect price as well as the perfect size to have in my bag.

this lotion is pretty runny but i like the smell and it absorbs quickly. you can wash your hands …

Lotions/ Creams - Kiehl's - Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

there is little to add that hasn't already been said but many reviewers mentioned that they bought it to cope with extreme cold, and i'd like to tag onto that.

of course the smell is amazing but it does dissipate. this is basically an adult version of the old bath & body works baked good scents (but just a bit less synthetic).

i don't know if i will …

Other - Unlisted Brand - MARVIS Toothpaste

this rating is for the licorice mint flavor

marvis toothpastes are a great treat and not as pricey as they seem since a tube lasts almost as long as one from the drugstore.

i am not a conspiracy theorist and i have no problems buying drugstore toothpastes but marvis is delicious and no negative results at the dentist. did i mention it was delicious? (i really like licorice …

Lotions/ Creams - Fresh - Seaberry Omega-Rich Body Cream

i had high hopes for this because it is the first thing i ever purchased from the fresh brand and i had always heard such good things about it.

as i get older my skin gets drier and drier in the winter and i was looking to try a good lotion. this one has a great fresh scent and has a nice consistency. but it's really not all that hydrating which is pretty disappointing given the …

unisex and super sophisticated, i always get compliments on this. jo malone is always pricey because it's not edp but this particular scent has enough body that reapplication is just a couple of sprays, if any.

Lip Gloss - Bonne Bell - Lip Smackers - Dr. Pepper

bonne bell lip balm is usually the first cosmetic a girl uses. they're cheap and they smell delicious.

this one is a tad harder to find than it was, say, two or three decades ago, but i find it at walmart. some grocery stores probably carry it as well. it still smells and tastes like dr. pepper, and it gives your lips a wash of moisturized color that fits in with a makeup look …

this new ysl foundation is hardly a value (20% less product than a standard foundation bottle from ysl or pretty much any other brand) but it's also my favorite foundation that i've ever tried.

my skin is a sheet of grease and i've never seen oil control like this. my forehead might still get a bit shiny by the end of the day but nothing like the oil slick i've …

Eye Shadow - Too Faced - Chocolate Gold Eye Shadow Palette

i never really dabbled much with eyeshadow in the past but with time i'm expanding my makeup comfort zone.

too faced was a name i recognized and understood to be a fun brand that still was on par quality-wise with department store products. i chose this specific palette for its color selection; i like shimmer but i also need to look professional. most of these shades suit that …
