Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Waterproof

Jan/18/2014

Shiseido discontinued a waterproof mascara that I was devoted to for some time, and after searching for a replacement, this seemed like the best option. I tried higher end brands like Dior, but L'Oreals was the best price and product for me.

I prefer waterproof because it prevents raccoon eyes best for me. This one does the trick. It maintains my curl while lengthening and …

I purchased my second Emjoi epilator, the Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator - 36 Gold Plated Hypoallergenic Tweezers (Rechargeable), because my first Emjoi started to die on me, which I had for over five years.

This Soft Caress epilator works just as a great as my first one, which was the same model but different look. The curved sides of the body gives you a better grip on the device, which …

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

Jun/05/2012

All the hype and recs for this mascara made me want to try it. It didn't work for me. This mascara clumps a lot, even after wiping the wand the look was clumpy. I tried to fix the clumping by using my lash comb which made my lashes look almost spidery. After applying two coats (worse after three) I lost the curl in my lash and ended up with stick straight lashes. After letting the mascara …Read more

I had high hopes for this after my Shiseido mascara was discontinued, but unfortunately it's the worse mascara I've used in awhile. First, it leaves you with raccoon eyes after a few hours. I've tried setting the mascara with powder and keeping my face oil free to prevent this smudging, but that didn't work. It also didn't hold my curl after application. I my discontinued …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Dermacontrol Oil Control Foam Wash

May/27/2012

This was recommended to me by my doctor to take care of the blackheads on my nose because it was oil-free and gentle. My skin feels clean and smooth, but I'm noticing that my nose starts to peel after using it a couple times. It seems gentle enough, and it doesn't dry out other parts of my face except for my nose. I've had a lot of success with Kiehl products and my mom has …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Pure Fiji - Body Butter in Coconut

May/27/2012

I've been a long time user and fan of Pure Fiji's Coconut lotion. It kept my skin hydrated well enough, but recently my skin has felt a little drier and I've been losing weight so I'm concerned with keeping my skin well hydrated. I switched to the body butter version of the Coconut lotion and I love it. My skin feels better hydrated and for longer periods. Some body butters …Read more

May/27/2012

I got a sample of this and after two uses my pores were noticeably smoother in texture and my blackheads were almost all gone. I purchased the tub of it, which is A LOT of product for me since I only use it on my nose. Since purchasing, I've been using it twice a week and my nose pores are clearer, smoother, and smaller. I recommend this over Dr. Brandt's Vacuum Cleaner, which …Read more

May/25/2012

I purchased this product hoping that it would help with my blackhead issue because it's oil-free. I also like that it's enriched with C and E AND it's SPF 30. BUT here's my gripe, I applied as directed, which means you have to wait 15 mins before applying makeup. Even after 20 minutes my face didn't feel like it absorbed all of the product, which didn't leave me with …Read more

May/25/2012

I have combination skin, an oily t-zone and am prone to blackheads on my nose. I purchased this product hoping it would start to clear up my blackheads. Unfortunately it didn't help much. I did notice that it cleared up some blackheads, but it didn't do much overall after a couple weeks of use, and I used the product 3 times a week. I got a sample of Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore …Read more

I usually use the Lasting Lift, but it was discontinued. I tried the Peferct Full Definition mascara with it's "special" thicker brush and I'm not a fan. I doesn't hold a curl very well, it lengthens very little and it doesn't add much volume or definition. I'm going to finish this product out and try Armani's line.
