Polishes - Essie - Turquoise & Caicos

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2012

The name of the polish is "Turquoise and Caicos" but the color is more of a minty-seafoam green. The color is beautiful and perfect for the summer but the nail polish is streaky and hard to apply. It takes three coats for the color to reach full opacity, and even then, the color is uneven in some areas of my nails. I would not buy this again because application is a total pain in the …Read more

This is a great moisturizer in the summer for my combination-acne prone skin. It is extremely light weight and it is readily absorbed by the skin. It smells absolutely amazing. Paired with the Suki Targeted Bio-Brightening Face Serum, I immediately noticed the hyperpigmentation in my skin (from acne) lightening. My skin looks fresh, bright and smooth. I really like this product.

This stuff is amazing. I didn't realize how great this product is until I stopped using it for two weeks. Within that time, the skin on my face started developing tiny whiteheads all over. I couldn't understand why this was happening and accredited the cause to a foundation (Diorskin) I was using. I tried exfoliating more to no avail. Then I realized that I had stopped using this …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Natura Bisse - GlycoLine Glyco Extreme Peel

Sep/23/2009

Let me start off by saying that I've been afraid to leave the house since high school sans makeup because of the scars I've had from picking at blackheads and whiteheads. I've been scouring different makeup counters ever since then to find a solution. I read about the glyco peel and I finally caved in and purchased it despite the $225 price tag.....THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. During my …Read more

Can't say I dislike the product as I only tried a small sample of this. Can't get past the smell though...I've used some crazy smelling things like vinegar on my face, but I can't get past the smell of this cream. It's a cross between burning plastic and chemicals...

Omgosh, this conditioner smells so good! I normally dislike the smell of vanilla but the smell of this conditioner is absolutely divine. It doesn't work well as a conditioner and you would use about half a bottle each shampoo if you were to actually use it is as a conditioner...I usually use a different conditioner that doesn't have much of a smell to it, and then i'll rub a little …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume Mascara

I think this product lives up to the hype. It's a lot cheaper than high end mascaras but does the same thing. It definitely lengthens and volumizes my eyelashes. I find that one - two coats are enough. I then run a spoolie through my lashes for additional separation. Works great. The only pain is that you can't find these in most drugstores where I live so I will have to order it online …Read more

Body Scrubs - LUSH - You Snap the Whip Body Butter

Jul/24/2009

This is one LUSH product that did not work well with my skin. It's supposed to be a body butter but it made my skin EXTREMELY DRY. I used it a few times, and after each time, my skin would be SOOOO itchy even with moisturizer. I also wouldn't use it directly on the skin as a body butter because it'll leave a black residue on your skin leaving your skin looking kind of gray. I love …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - shu uemura - Beta-G Reinforcing eye cream

This is a pretty good eye cream for the summer but not the winter. I purchased this in the winter at the suggestion of the salesperson for my dry eyelids. While the product sinks into the skin very quickly, it did almost nothing to address the dry patches in my eye area. Overall, I like the product, but I know there's a better option exists somewhere else, so why buy this again?

Treatments (Eye) - Burt's Bees - Royal Jelly Eye Cream [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/02/2009

This product, while not completely terrible, isn't really worth repurchasing once you finish using it. It's also a little grainy when you put it on due to the bees wax contained in the product. The wax does melt however, so the "graininess" doesn't really cause an issue. PROS: The product moisturizes pretty well and you only need a tiny bit each time (maybe a dab into the …Read more
