This product is excellent. Gentle yet very thorough in cleaning & exfoliation. It lathers up my cleanser MUCH better if I apply a small dollop of cleanser to the pad itself & then start scrubbing my face, rather than applying cleanser to my face with hands first & then rubbing the scrubber over it.

I too am on the hunt for a body size version. I see now that they make all …

What you see in the bottle looks even better on the nails, whether it's 1 sheer coat on bare nails or 2 coats layered over nude undies. The color is demure yet edgy, ethereal, divine, dreamy, and entirely lives up to its 'Afterglow' name. This is the perfect blue-tinge polish I've been looking for - reminds me of a similar polish I wore in middle school, so I've got this …Read more

Polishes - H&M - Nail Polish - All Shades

Apr/23/2018

I recently hauled 8 bottles of color from H&M for $6 a piece (I originally thought they were $8 each, but that's the "gel" version, so $6 is better, as costs quickly add up). I'm not thrilled with all the shades I picked (I even tested them in the store but you never really know until you do the full mani), but they are workable for unusual manicure effects. What I love …Read more

May/30/2017

I want to say that I'd buy this again, but (#1) it's discontinued, so availability is limited to how many are still circulating on eBay, and (#2) I bought a new, sealed pkg of this but it smells so powerfully rancid & waxy that I said to myself I wouldn't buy it again. The same Lipslicks in 'Edgy' (sheer purple) has a much fainter odor, nowhere near as strong as this …Read more

Love this product! It's simple, pure, effective, reliable, versatile, & inexpensive. A basic skincare staple. Granted, I don't give it the full appreciation it deserves, which means I don't use it all that often for my dry skin issues (mostly out of pure laziness & self-denial), but I always keep a bottle in my home on hand for when nothing else would do the trick & I …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Shea Moisture - Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Energizing Body Lotion

May/13/2017

It's thick for a lotion, almost a cream, but it's lightweight & absorbs quickly, completely & greaselessly. I love the scent, which is the reason I hunted everywhere for it, & so far I love it for my hands at night before bed & my face after a shower. I'm past acne age & my skin is now very dry (peri-menopausal), so I'm not prone to easy breakouts (I used …Read more

As I turned 40 my hair texture & behavior had morphed into something I couldn't figure out how to cope with. Almost 5 years later, I've long since given up trying. I haven't colored or styled my hair since. My permanent daily hairstyle is a short ponytail that I trim myself at home once or twice a year. The greys have multiplied exponentially in 4-5 yrs & my hair is now …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Gel Couture Color (All Colors)

LOVE THIS LINE. Rich formula & pigment, longwearing, vibrant color & finish, long-lasting, easy to apply, minimal application mistakes (great brush!). Costly, but worth buying a few well-loved colors. The formula & application brush are excellent.

The topcoat is rather useless to me, but other users seem to like it better than I do. Any topcoat works with these colors for …

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Gel Couture Top Coat

Apr/24/2017

I LOVE the Essie Gel Couture colors & own several BUT I'm not particularly fond of the matching topcoat. It doesn't really do anything for my manicure & I can do just as well (or better, actually) using other fast-dry topcoats I already own, like Seche Vite. For some reason, I still get some shrinkage using only the Essie Gel Couture color + topcoat combo, so I'm better off …Read more

Wow, I really like this a lot! I had never even known this beautiful sheer plum color existed back when Lipslicks were still on the shelves. I come from the days of "Hint of..." color names, and I wasn't at all impressed with those colors. I know I must have tried one or two but was unhappy either with the shade, or the texture (not very glossy), or the smell (somewhat rancid) …Read more
