Treatments (Face) - Biotherm - Life Plankton Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2016

I've been using this life plankton mask now twice a week for 3 months during the cold and dry autumn moving towards winter here in Canada and this mask has kept my face well moisturized between uses. This is a mask to use while sleeping, according to their instructions, and that is how I use it. They say to put on the essence, then apply the mask and then wash it off the next morning. This …Read more

Hair Treatments - L'Oreal Paris - Hair Expertise Extraordinary oil Nourishing Mask Balm

Love this effective but lightweight mask. I used to use Occitane's olive oil hair mask until they discontinued it and used to love getting compliments on my shiny black hair the day after I used it. I have been searching high and low for a mask which shows visible results - with no success until now. This is it - very affordable too, when it goes on sale. Occitane currently sells a similar …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Klorane - soothing make-up remover with corn flower water

May/01/2015

I bought this as a makeup remover in an emergency and I'm so glad I did. What a find! Gentle, pleasant and completely non-greasy. Another plus is that I've found it doubles as a face cleanser. One time I only had this bottle and had run out of face cleanser. I had minimal makeup on (just some concealer) and wiped my face clean and then rinsed. My facial skin was so clean and soft. On …Read more

Hair Color - Garnier - Olia Brilliant Color

Jul/19/2014

There seem to be many negative reviews, and I'm a bit mystified. This product has worked excellently for me. It may be down to a combination of things: hair type, degree of grey, your water quality, etc. My hair picked up the soft black 2.0 color brilliantly and I have soft and shiny hair as a result of using Olia.
I have no issues with using the basics like gloves or the simple …

Shampoo - AVEDA - Shampure Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2012

I love this Aveda shampoo which is a complete change from my usual thoughts on Aveda shampoos. Every single one of them dries my fine hair hair out to a nasty tangly mess except for Shampure. HOWEVER - I think this is because, at the advice of my stylist, I use Damage Remedy conditioner (the regular one) to condition after use and not the matching Shampure conditioner. My salon tends to mix Aveda …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Unlisted Brand - Qhemet - Soap of Alep

Nov/29/2010

Since I first tried this soap when I travelled in the south of France, I have loved it. The ingredients appear to be simply olive oil, bay oil, salt, and sodium hydroxide (necessary to the process of turning liquid oils into a cake of soap). That's it, nothing else - no dyes, perfumes, or anything else. Apparently stacks of these soap cakes are made and left to dry in the sun, as is the …Read more

Liquid - Dior - Diorskin Nude Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/11/2010

This product is obviously expensive, and the packaging, while pretty, is not the greatest since a lot of product remains stuck to the inner walls of the jar (I pried my jar open when no more was coming out of the pump, and I had about 2 weeks' worth of product left that was still usable!) - but just the same, in spite of these negatives, I will still be buying this again. The coverage is …Read more

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2010

Last year I started simplifying my facial routine - I had too many products. So I ditched them all and kept the bare minimum. I use makeup, so I kept the cleanser I currently use because it works well for me, and at the end of the day right after cleansing my face thoroughly I put about 1-2 drops of extra virgin olive oil in my palm, and then smooth it into my face, starting under my eyes and …Read more

Cleansers - VICHY - purete thermale purifying rinse-off foam cleanser

5.0

Mar/25/2009

This face wash is really good. I even bought the toner after receiving a free sample. Normally, I don't find that toners really do anything special, but I found that washing and then following with the toner made my winter-weary skin nice and smooth. Overnight I am using the new Aqualia mineral balm. It's fairly thick but in combination with the face wash and toner, it has cleared my …Read more

Crème - COVERGIRL - Cover Girl TruBlend Whipped Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/29/2007

I bought this whipped foundation because I needed it in an emergency, and I love it. My shade is on the dark side, so I use Classic Tan. I like the texture and the silky feel it gives to the skin. Also, it blends wonderfully, but like another reviewer put it, the key is to put it on lightly. If you apply too much, it won't blend nicely into your skin and will probably make you look cakey …Read more
