Treatments (Eye) - Mario Badescu - Olive Eye Cream

This is a thick emollient cream. It can go a bit greasy and takes longer to sink in than other eye creams. I take a tiny spatula that came with the Shiseido eye cream and dot creme around the eye. I tried rolling it with a jade roller, but overall I found lightly tapping with my fingers and warming it up helps the creme settle nicely without the shiny effect.
The jar packaging is a love hate …

Cleansers - Deciem - Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner

Feb/28/2018

I purchased this as part of a package deal on boxing day. Having used another oil cleanser, I oil cleanser does not work for me. It could be the type of makeup I use, as I go between full coverage Estee Lauder foundation and Mischa BB cream, and found it does not cleanse it off on the first go. I use it with the Shiseido face brush, on a dry face and then rinse with water. It requires a double …Read more

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

Edit- To address another reviewer that says the bad reviews are due to not doing the treatment in the salon, my review is for No3, the take home conditioning treatment you are supposed to do at home and not the salon.

I am three quarters done with a bottle and on the fence on how well this works for my hair. Perhaps I expected too much?
My hair is colour processed- bayalage and …

Purchased this after hearing a few people around work raving about this product. I have stick straight eyelashes that are also a bit short. I purchased from a lash extension salon, where I was told it would take weeks to see any results. The salon lady instructed to apply in the morning. Shake the bottle, and swipe the brush a couple of times, to remove excess product. Brush it as you would …Read more

I agree with the other reviewer that it is expensive.
I also notice the other reviewer who complains about efficacy is about a decade younger than me and I am thinking maybe not the target audience for this product.
I used hyaluronic products primarily found in Korean beauty products in my 30's but I rotated (and continue to rotate) serums and moisturizers to maintains …

Conditioner - Kevin Murphy - Plumping Rinse

This is described as a densifying conditioner for thinning hair and was recommended to me by my hairstylist. I am using KM Angel Wash, the shampoo, but considering I am shedding hair like crazy, this was more appropriate than the Angel conditioner.
I like KM products for the sulfate-free and lux feel they leave on the hair. I like the look and feel of my hair after using this. My hair is …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Soft Soothing Cleansing Wipes

5.0

Aug/08/2015

Purchased these for a trip, to take instead of the Sublime Soft Micellar cleansing water which is fantastic. (I think it is marketed as Skin Perfecting 3-1 cleansing in the US, but the packaging is the same). Overall the wipes are great, convenient and take the makeup off. My main gripe would be that they are the same price as the cleansing water and that lasts for a lot longer than the small …Read more

Overall it is an average moisturizer with the bonus of spf. I was not even going to write home about it, but thought I would inventory this for next time in case I forget.

I have oily skin and was looking for a hydrating formula with spf to replace the Ombrelle I had been using. The texture is light, very faint scent that disappears promptly after applying. This did nothing to control …

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Preference Shine Extending Hair Color

Tried the new formulation in Tahiti, which is 4 brown, and it was a bit too dark for my liking.
I am olive skin and the colour was a bit too cool for my tone. For the next coloring I tried to go up a number.
Next up I tried Milan, 4 medium brown. The problem I suppose is I was trying to cover greys and tried to do my roots first and then tried to blend the colour with the rest of my …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

Jun/09/2015

I am in the minority on this. Yes it does dry polish expediently, but the smell... boy, is it ever strong. The smell has a ridiculous staying power, we are talking more than a couple of hours of a strong chemical smell. I also find that it shrinks polish, if that makes any sense. I had a bottle but could not finish it and had to give it away. I will stick with Sally Hansen drops, as they are …Read more
