Fragrances - Pacifica - Sandalwood Perfume

4.0

Nov/20/2015

This is a lovely perfume (I have the rollerball version), but I wouldn't consider it a classic sandlewood scent. The first note I get is a bitter orange scent, followed by musky, spicey sandlewood. The sandlewood note becomes more prominent as the scent wears down. It is a nice fall and winter scent, especially. The only issue I have is with the lasting power, which seems to be an issue with …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Spaire Nano Ionic Facial Steamer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2015

This facial steamer is a very relaxing experience, and also a great addition to any facial care routine. I've used it multiple ways and found it easy to use. Simply fill up the water compartment with distilled water and switch on the steamer. In a minute or so ionized steam (which is supposed to have multiple benefits) pours out of the cone shaped area on the front of the machine. It always …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Trader Joe's - Nourish Shea Butter Hand Cream

5.0

Oct/31/2015

This is my holy grail hand cream - I stock up whenever I go to TJ's. It's super moisturizing and sinks into the skin without feeling greasy. I also love that it's fragrance free. Shea butter just seems to agree with my skin, and I love that its one of the main ingredients in this cream. Also, it's cheap - 1.99 per tube! I only wish it came in larger containers. Love this …Read more

Polishes - Color Club - Harp On It

Very pretty linear silver holo polish. Maybe the best silver holo available from a mainstream brand. I do find that the application is a little patchy on this one. Also, I find the Halo Hues can be chippy, but I've found a method that increases longevity (for me) and helps with the drag that these tend to have when applying - I apply base coat, one layer of polish, then quick dry top coat …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Pelican Grey

Sep/25/2015

Grey is one of my all time favorite colors to wear as a nail polish. I am very fair with a cool undertone and most greys seem to work on me. So of coarse I was interested in Pelican Gray when the Anchor's Away collection came out. This color reminds me a lot of Zoya Harley, my HG shimmery light grey polish. PG is not quite as cool toned. On my skintone this color actually translates to more …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Hawaiian Ruby Guava Spray Perfume

Sep/04/2015

I have this scent in the rollerball version. I was looking for a nice fruity scent for summer and came across this at my local health food store. I debated between this and the Tuscan Blood Orange scent but decided on HRG since it seemed to last a little longer on me. This is a terrific warm weather fragrance - it does have a guava and berry type of scent with bit of tropical floral mixed in. The …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Pret-A-Surfer

Aug/11/2015

Gorgeous dusty periwinkle cream. That's how I would describe Essie Pret-a-surfer. And, this polish is almost a one coater! It also dried very quickly. I have quite a few colors in this category but no exact dupes. Sinful Colors Lavender is slightly lighter but actually quite close color-wise. If you have other blue-grey polishes in your collection you may not need it, but it is a really …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - JulieG Nails - White Orchid

Aug/11/2015

This is a very opaque white! I was shocked when I first applied it. Considering it was a $4 drugstore polish my expectations weren't too high. It is a two coater, and easy to work with. I find the brush fits my nails perfectly too. It also wears for a long time on me - I had it on for a week and it was barely chipped when I removed it. The only (minor) issues were that the polish smelled …Read more

Nail Tools - Sally Hansen - No More Mistakes Manicure Clean-Up Stick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2015

Confession: despite years of practice, I am still quite clumsy at painting my nails. I have tried to master the three stroke method but with some formulas it just doesn't work for me. I normally just soak my nails in water after they dry completely and do clean up that way, but that can be time consuming. I haven't gone the way of using pure acetone and a brush yet, but haven't …Read more

Shampoo - Desert Essence - Italian Red Grape Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/28/2015

I am a big fan of the DE Coconut shampoo as well as the Lemon Tea Tree shampoo, so decided to try this one on a whim. I have color treated hair and the Italian Red Grape shampoo is supposed to be formulated specifically for that. As you can tell from the rating I am not super impressed with this shampoo. First of all, it smells like straight grape soda. Like syrup-ey sweet artificially flavored …Read more
