Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

1.0

May/13/2008

wow i can see that this is quite a popular product around here. I guess I'm the odd one out. I'm really not a huge fan of these "plasticky" oil absorbing sheets, I usually prefer the paper ones. I just feel like the texture is so uncomfortable to use and I don't like putting it on my face! Also I find that these are very drying, which causes my skin to produce more oil …Read more

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Rosebud Salve

I used to use this as a lip balm but found that it dried my lips out really fast, later I realized it probably had something to do with the petroleum base. Now I prefer to use petroleum-free lip balms. But since I had such a big tin of it I decided to use it as a hand salve/ cuticle cream and it functions a lot better! It's quite thick but surprisingly not that sticky. My mum had a little …Read more

I love this stick foundation! I have it in "Cream" and it matches my skin perfectly. A note to those who have to blend two to get a neutral shade: Ivory, Vanilla, Shea and Wheat are all neutral shades, whilst Chamomile, Cream, Sand and Banana are warm shades (the shades NOT mentioned above are cool shades). Find the right shade for yourself within the three tonal families. Trust me …Read more

Blush - Giorgio Armani - Sheer Blush #2 [DISCONTINUED]

Sheer blush #2... a soft pink with a hint of peach and a very subtle gleam. Very natural looking and also easy to build; it never looks harsh when you put it on. I like to use this at night, paired with smokey eyes and nude lips, it gives a soft sexy glow. I like that it doesn't look too obvious/ fake. However, it does darken slightly over the course of the day (esp if you have oily skin) …Read more

This product is truly brilliant. I am convinced that the smell alone has a therapeutic effect. When my skin is looking a bit rough for wear, I massage this into clean, damp skin, then wipe off with the accompanied muslin cloth (damp). The box comes with instructions on how to do either a "full facial" or "simple cleansing" The butter-like consistency melts into an oil, making …Read more

This is a really great cleanser that I use every morning. I have combination/sensitive skin and this really removes all the excess oil on my t-zone but is gentle enough that it doesn't stress out my drier cheek areas. I definitely feel that my acne has improved since I started using this product!

At first I was skeptical about this conditioner, seeing as how it was clear, I was convinced that it couldn't possibly be that moisturizing. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this leaves my hair so soft and smooth and tangle-free. It's not heavy at all and using it several times a week or even daily does not try out my hair. Love it!

I love this shampoo. It is so refreshing yet not drying at all. My hair didn't feel stripped of oil like it can sometime do with other clarifying shampoos. It made my hair feel so fresh and soft. Recently I went on a trip and used this daily for a week, and it was so gentle that my hair never felt dry. Usually I only use this about twice a week though.

Definitely will repurchase …

I wasn't impressed with this shampoo at all. Scent was ok -- sort of what I was expecting given the name/ ingredients. However, I didn't feel like it was cleansing and it left my hair a big tangled mess. I have fine hair but didn't find this shampoo giving me extra volume.

Basically it did nothing for my hair.
