Other - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Melatonin

5.0

Feb/03/2012

While taking melatonin for sleep, I dreamt that I had a penis, as in attached to my body, and that it was much too sensitive (I am a woman). It did make me fall asleep, however, and now I appreciate what men have to deal with everyday much better, too. YMMV.

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Plus White - 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2012

If you use this with Glad Press and Seal cling film/plastic wrap, it's pretty much a Crest White Strip at a miniscule amount of the cost. I'm glad they sorted out the "watery bottle" problem from last year, because I did get a bottle of that useless mess. It works, it does make my teeth sensitive, but if I use Sensodyne or comparable toothpaste immediately following, it cuts …Read more

Fragrances - By Kilian - Back to Black

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2011

Reminiscent of a freshly-opened tin of honey-flavored cigarillos from a good brand like CAO, Tatiana, or Havana Honey's. When worn, makes me want to smoke myself: not sure if that is good or bad.

Fragrances - Balmain - Ambre Gris

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2011

This is a warm, sweet, musky scent, and seems suitable for both men and women. In fact, this would absolutely be much more delicious on a man than a woman. I prefer the dry down over the initial spraying, when it can be a little strong, synthetic and high-pitched to my nose. I get none of the florals, just wood, amber, and musk, and that sweet, root-beeresque cinnamon note that also shows up in …Read more

Fragrances - Hanae Mori - Eau de Collection No.1

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2011

Light berry vanilla eau fraiche, limited edition--if you like Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, this starts off similarly, perhaps not as sweetly--but it's got that same warm blueberry accord to it. The dry down is a bit milder and more refined than the Spears' though. Can be had cheaper than the $95 recommended retail online. Nice.

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Womanity Eau de Parfum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/17/2010

Like other Mugler scents, it is a very strong concoction--sharp, sweet/sour, acrid, salty, fruity fig. When I tried the Fritz Lang Metropolis' robot-like bottle at Bloomingdales, I attempted a light spritz, but the spray was more a gushing stream than a fine mist. I felt an immediate, nose-wrinkling regret and made a quick reroute to the restroom to scrub it off. I can't comment on the …Read more

Masks - Aztec Secret - Indian Healing Clay

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/15/2010

I mix this with ACV, 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. of sulfur powder (check Amazon), a few drops of lavender (or other EO like tea tree) and jojoba oils, and occasionally lemon juice and plain yogurt. I leave it on for about one hour. It's exceptionally cleansing, tightening, and purifying. I imagine you could add pureed banana, avocado, turmeric powder, herbal teas, etc. to customize for your skin …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Sircuit Cosmeceuticals

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2010

I purchased two trials of their items, and I like best the Savior cleanser with 2% Salicylic and 5% Lactic acids, the SirActive scrub, the Dreamweaver night cream, the OMG serum, and the I.Cee.U eye gel. The eye gel has a particularly good tightening effect, and the night cream and OMG serums give a great glow--but all of these items are over $100 apiece full-size. There are more expensive, much …Read more

Hair Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Organic Neem Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2010

I got an 8oz bottle of this from a local grocer; it's of the "organeem" brand. I like to mix it with jojoba and rosemary EO for a nice scalp treatment for when my head is dry and itchy. This instructions on the bottle give gardening instructions to make a spray to kill aphids/mites, etc. The label says, "FOR PERSONAL, PET, AND GARDEN USE." I have read online it's …Read more

Masks - Auromére - Ayurvedic Herbomineral Mudbath Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2010

I like to premix in a bowl with a bit of lavender oil, plain yogurt and jojoba oil, for a more mask-like application, rather than the mud-bath use explicated in the instructions. I have also added fresh lemon juice, Apple Cider Vinegar, fruit and vegetable purees, and sulfur powder with the Auromere product as a base. It's a unique, inexpensive, and effective product which leaves my skin …Read more
