May/20/2009

I have been using this product for about 45 days.

<p>
PROS: I love the consistency, the pump jar, the fact that it doesn't irritate my eye area and doesn't make my eyes water.

CONS: The problem is...I have been breaking out significantly from this product, in the areas that I apply it. Under my eyes, on my temples. It's as if this creeps down my …

Lipstick - CHANEL - Aqualumiere sheer colour lipshine in #46 Bahamas

Apr/14/2009

I haven't written a review in a long time because there hasn't been anything special enough to write about. But after buying Chanel #46 Bahamas last spring, and using it consistently throughout the year, I have to tell the world that it's the *GREATEST* lip color ever. A gorgeous deep pinked fushia (blue based) PERFECT for spring, it just brightens up my face while looking fresh …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Plush Lash [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/13/2009

I wanted to love it, but had to return it. The brush was so FAT, and on my soft lashes I just couldn't grab them. I kept smacking the brush into my eyelid - not a pretty sight. When I did get the brush to grab my lashes, I wound up with 4 clumpy eyelash segments on each eye - weird. Kinda like Twiggy from the 1960s? But it's 2009 so I'm sticking with ProLonglash, which is still my …Read more

Blush - LORAC - Blush/Bronzer Duo - Hot Flash

Loved this bronzer when I first bought it - until I discovered that it breaks me out! I tried it three separate times - and wound up breaking out right after. There's something in it that clogs pores, possibly the silicone? Not sure. But I checked the box and website to see if it's noncomedogenic - and it doesn't say this anywhere. So this had to go back.

Conditioner - John Masters Organics - Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner

Mar/10/2008

I love this product! I wash my hair every other day and I use this intensive conditioner each time. I use a generous amount, rub it in thoroughly, and leave it on around 3-4 minutes. The fragrance is wonderful - reminds me of a slightly powdery lavender, though I wish the scent lasted in my hair. It leaves my hair detangled, soft and full of body - not flat or oily. I don't know what it is …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

1.0

Jun/04/2007

Philosophy...where to begin? I loved Philosophy products, until I discovered the only thing they were doing for my skin was harming it - clogging, greasing, and aging my skin due to all of the chemicals and toxins in the products. Read the ingredients that comprise this product...diatomaceous earth?!!! Yeah it's "naturally occuring" but it's main use is as a parasite/insect …Read more

Bronzers - Dr. Hauschka - Translucent Bronzing Tint

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2007

I contemplated this for like, 3 years. On-and-off I kept looking at this while shopping at Whole Foods, thinking I should try it. It was only until I was completely fed-up with the chemicals in most skincare products that I bought it. And I'm really glad I did. It smells lovely, natural - like all Dr. H products. But the bronze glow is so completely natural and beautiful that I can't …Read more

Toners - Zia - Sea Tonic Rosewater & Aloe Toner

May/25/2007

I was stupid and used Philosophy skincare for far too long. (Over a year). While I didn't see any good results from philosophy's overmarketed products, I did see congested, oily, abused skin. I decided to forgo the chemicals and unnatural ingredients in mainstream brands. I wanted to try Dr. Hauschka's regime - and the idea that we don't need moisturizer at night. But I …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2007

I LOVE Dandelion. Yep, I am pasty white. But this shows up as the most beautiful healthy glow. Exactly as advertised, which is weird - since BeneFit loves to advertise. If I put a few layers on it is quite apparent, but not overdone. I slap this on as I drive to work. And while the box is cardboard and has been knocked around my handbag for the past few months, only the corners show a little …Read more

Lip Treatments - CLARINS - Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/23/2007

Damn, I love this lip balm. I'm a lip balm junky and have tried everything - including Nuxe (hated), Caudalie (not great), Clinique (horrible petroleum), Dr. Hauschka (my past favorite but it's such a tiny amount of product .17oz for $14) and Moon Valley Organics (best scent ever). Clarins lip balm is my current obsession. It's January and this helps my dry lips instantly. It has a …Read more
