i got a sample of this from mecca cosmetica in .au, while in search for some emergency care for my skin. for reasons unknown, my skin decided to go crazy and stayed that way for a few months. consequently i went crazy too, trying to find something, anything, to make it stop! but, i am saved!

this is essentially a benzoyl peroxide but hyped up - there's some fancy AHA and other …

Masks - Avene - Soothing Moisture Mask

The second ingredient in this mask is mineral oil. Meaning, there's a whole bunch of mineral oil in this (highly overpriced eau thermale avene water touting c-rap) mask.

Natural, effective but not drying! Full of all sorts of things my naturopath sister has been telling me I should've been using instead of benzoyl peroxide for years: calendula, etc.
My skin is happier and less flakey using this instead of benzoyl peroxide. My only worry is that you aren't meant to use this for extended periods of time - maybe because of the vitamin A, or somesuch …

Other - Palmer's - No-Blade Hair Removal Cream

Stanky. STANKY! Palmer's obviously hasn't realised that hair removal cream doesn't need to smell like hair removal cream anymore. Nor, it seems, have they realised that their plastic 'no-blade' spatula may as well be a blade for all the pain and suffering it inflicts. Or that hair removal cream is meant to remove hair. ..reiterating: stanky.

I used this on two separate time periods. The first time, I thought that it improved my skin quite a lot, and so on the second occasion, I bought a bigger bottle, and wasn't impressed. The smell stays with you after you've used it - which always doesn't sit well with me, it should go when you wash it off! I also found it quite drying - maybe 'cause the second ingredient is …Read more

I use this on my face when my skin is going crazy. It's completely oil free and the main ingredient is Aloe Vera Gel. I'd imagine it'd be great on sunburn. For 15 AU dollars, you get a generous 125mL bottle. The only qualms I have about this product is that you need strong hands to squeeze it out 'cause the plastic bottle is a little difficult, and also this sort of.. rubs …Read more

Lip Treatments - Avene - Cold Cream Lip Balm

3.0

Mar/01/2003

This isn't really a lip gloss, but more of a no-frills no-thrills lip balm. It is quite creamy, and has a delicate scent which is pleasant, but I can't say it's fantastically moisturising, especially for the price.. maybe 'cause it isn't winter my lips aren't dry. Regardless, I don't think I'd buy it again 'cause it's nothing special, especially …Read more
