Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2013

What I like about it - it is definitely fast drying, and adds a thick, plasticky smooth coat over nails that can make them look like gel. My last manicure lasted two weeks with no ships, only tip wear.
What I don't like - it discolors lighter nail polishes, ie a true white will be slightly yellower with Seche on top. This is not too noticeable enough to be a deal breaker.

Lotions/ Creams - Badger - Cuticle Care

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2013

I bought this based on online reviews. The skin around my fingernails has been a bit wrinkly and dry looking for some time. Using this has made a difference to the overall look of my fingers. I was pleasantly surprised that it absorbed so quickly. The tin closes properly but is easy to open, and in colder temperatures swiping your fingers over the product will make it soft enough to use. It has a …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails XTremewear in Golden-I

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2013

I purchased this color as I was looking for a gold foil that was not too yellow or too dark. On me, Golden-I is straight up bronze, not gold as it looked in photos. Depending on the lighting it can look anywhere from almost silver to olive-bronze. It does have a great mirror shine and foil effect.
The good news is that although I didn't expect it to be this color, the color is so …

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture - Combination Skin

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2013

Sadly, this has been reformulated and now contains cyclotetrasiloxane and cyclopentasiloxane. If you are sensitive to silicones, check the ingredients packaging before buying to check whether you have an old or new batch. Within a week, I was broken out from the new formulation (which is when I checked the box and saw the new ingredients).

I rate the old version 4/5; the new version …

Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - Herbatint Permanent Haircolor Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2013

Trying to use something more gentle on my hair, I decided to try this. As reviews mention, colors run darker. If you look on the Herbatint website, they will tell you to go 2 shades lighter than you normally would. Don't get caught up with the names, because "dark blonde" may be light brown, "chestnut" may be dark brown, etc.

In order to get a dark brown, I …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - High Linoleic Safflower Oil

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2013

I looked into what oils might work for my skin type to use for oil cleansing, and safflower and hemp were recommended for clog prone, sensitive skin with rosacea due to their high linoleic content.
I used it for 3 nights, followed by by regular cleanser to remove the residue. Each morning I woke up to hard lumps that felt like cysts, but were whiteheads on top. Because they multiplied each …

Moisturizers - Weleda - Skin Food

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2013

Skin food is a thick moisturiser that I find hard to spread on its own. I use it on my hands, and I can definitely feel that it imparts moisture. The smell is not unpleasant, especially for a natural product, is quite fresh and dissipates quickly.

It is really expensive for what it is, so although I chose 'yes' to repurchase for now, I wouldn't be surprised if I could …

Lotions/ Creams - Weleda - Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2013

This hand cream is not very moisturising. I do not find it greasy - it sinks in fairly quickly. It also has a very strong herbal smell that most people (including me) would find off putting - I would not use this in the company of others.

I have never been consistent with using hand cream, as a result my fingers look more lined than they should. I have almost used up the tube and …

Hair Color - REVLON - Colorsilk Permanent Hair Color

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2013

I have been using this product for more than a year now.
I made the switch from L'Oreal Excellence because the dye never lasted long on my white hair (within 1-2 weeks it was like I had never colored it at all) even with use of color protectant products.The other reason I stopped using the L'Oreal is that they changed the proper gloves they used to give to the cheap thin plastic …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Sun Medic UV Day Protect Mild Cream SPF50 + PA + + +

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2012

I am one of the many who have not been able to find a sunscreen they can tolerate.
I was previously using Elta MD which clogged and broke me out after each use due to isoparaffin, but up til that point I used it because I had not found another ss I could use, and breakouts are more temporary than sun damage.

I am always on the look out for sunscreens, across all markets - Euro …
