Masks - Biotherm - Biopur Balancing Purifying Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2008

Biopur Balancing Purifying mask is a good/above average mask - not my HG, not the perfect mask on Earth, but does a pretty good job.

<p>I use it mainly on my T-zone, as this mask would be too drying for the rest of my face. It dries up quickly and almost pulls my face thigh so I would recommend not to let it dry more than a few minutes if you have sensitive skin. It makes my skin …

Cleansers - Aveeno - Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2008

Another useless product from Aveeno. I have absolutely no luck with this brand. I bought it in a whim last summer - I was staying a few days at my mom's place and I was out of facewash so I ended up buying this foaming cleanser at the drugstore nearby.

<p>I can tell the difference when I use this - it does absolutely nothing special. I think I could use only plain tap water …

Fragrances - Cacharel - Liberté

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2008

I got a sample of this fragrance last summer, and the cosmetician sprayed it on a little piece of cardboard for me to smell it. At first, I didn't think it would please me because the main note on the little sample cardboard was plain patchouli, a very strong patchouli scent. Not a summery scent to my nose... so I ended up storing my sample in my fragrances stash.

<p>Last …

Polishes - OPI - Strawberry Margarita

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2008

Strawberry Margarita is one of the cutest nail polish shade ever! I would describe the shade as a very bright and opaque Barbie-fuschia pink. It goes on smoothly and evenly. It's a very bold & fun color . I love it.

<p>In my humble opinion, one coat is not enough but since OPI polishes are not messy, you can easily apply 2-3 coats without having those unpleasant streaks …

Mascara - Biotherm - Open Eyes mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/09/2008

I got this mascara 1 or 2 weeks ago in a promotional package, along with an eye-makeup remover and a concealer. It was my first experience with a Biotherm mascara, and it'll be the last one.

<p>Althought it promises "endless lenght and total separation", it does a very average job. I've used mascaras that are not intended to lenghten lashes and they actually …

Moisturizers - NIVEA - Aqua Sensation

2.0

Feb/09/2008

I dont know what to think of this moisturizer. I really wanted to like it but I am not sure whether or not it is suitable with my messy skin.

<p>I really like the cooling sensation and I wished it would last longer because it is very refreshing. However, it leaves a sticky finish, even though I try to rub it carefully and gently blend it onto my skin. It seems that these …

Fragrances - Dior - Dior Bronze - Sweet Sun

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2008

Sweet Sun is one of my favorite summer fragrances. It's fresh and gentle, yet bold enough for my artsy personnality. I fell in love with Sweet Sun immediately.

<p>It has a sweet-milky-beachy scent. On my skin, the citrus-y notes are barely noticeable though. On me, I would describe the scent as a vanilla / sunscreen fragrance.</p>

<p>Although it …

Treatments (Face) - NUXE - Aroma-Vaillance Yeux Front Levres

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2007

Last time I purchased Nuxe products, the SA gave me some samples, including a sample of Aroma-Vaillance Yeux Front Lèvres. I have expression wrinkles on my forehead since I'm 19 and I have noticed that I have barely noticeable wrinkles in the outer corner of my eyes (I am 27). I though I would give this treatment a try.

<p> First of all, the smell is rather odd: it has a …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Gentle Sun Protection Lotion for Sensitive skin and Babies

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2007

I bought this sunscreen based on the reviews of another board. Most users were amazed by its mattifying properties.

<p>However, I am not pleased at all by this lotion. Upon application, it leaves my skin freshly matte. For 1 or 2 hours at most. Then boom!! my face becomes extremely shiny. I have a combo skin that tends to be slightly shinier during summer, but the result was …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2007

Telescopic is an overall good mascara - not a perfect mascara, but for the price it does a really good job.

<p>It makes my lashes ultra-long (and they're quite long already!!) and covers them with a shiny black coat. Good definition as well. I personally don't think it's clumpier than the other mascaras - as the other reviewers mentionned, just be careful …
