The Blue Orchil Oil is one of my favorite face treatments, so I had high hopes for this one, as my dehydrated skin tends to become oily during the summer (which in Greece lasts at least 6 months). I also have skin that gets clogged very easily, but as this is recommended for oily skin and people have been using it while suffering from acne, I thought it would work on me too.

Well, the …

EUROPEAN VERSION
I have short (mid-neck length) & frizzy hair and I've been using various oils for the last couple of years. I've tried various, from Kerastase to L'oreal and Avon to Timotei and this one is the worst by far. It does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for my hair. It provides shine and seems to control frizz for the first half hour (I use about 3-4 pumps), and then it …

I have been lucky to go through adolesence with barely a pimple in sight, only to develop adult acne on my chin and lower cheeks at the ripe age of 40:( After trying to treat it with Neostrata Smoothing Cream (thinking this was better for my skin since it claims to treat wrinkles as well) and seeing no result, I decided to take drastic measures and turn to acne fighting products instead. I had …Read more

Simply the best blackish red I've ever used. That's exactly my favorite shade for winter/autumn; stylish and chic instead of downright vampy as many nail colors in that range tend to be. A big plus is that the color doesn't get blacker and blacker with every extra application (Sole Mate I'm looking at you!). Ease of use is also great as always. Had to take a lippie down though …Read more

Dr Hauschka's Rose Cream Light has been my favorite cream ever. Last time I went to buy it though, the SA told me the Toned cream was on serious sale so I decided to give it a try.

Well, I have dry skin during the colder months, and still this is a bit too oily for me. Every 3 or 4 hours I have to blot my forehead to prevent it from looking overly shinny. This has only happened to …

Nov/17/2013

I'm hitting 40 in a couple of months and I realized my simple, basic eye cream wasn't working anymore as the lines around my eyes were getting more and more pronounced. I searched the reviews and this one was recommended by many people even older than me, for being very hydrating and also having some anti-aging effects. Well, after 3 weeks of use, I've noticed no anti-aging …Read more

Slate grey with a tiny bot of shimmer that's not visible under every light.

The first application really scared me, reminding me of my failed affair with Sole Mate: streaky and thin and uneven. I was completely disappointed until I applied the second coat and... ta da da dah!!! Miracle of miracles, I got complete coverage, even color, no streaks at all!

It's just …

Oct/02/2013

A very nice coral for those who like their corals to have more pink than orange tones. I'm fair skinned and don't get very tanned during the summer, so I prefer this; orange's just too harsh and foreign on me.
Lasts very well, both on feet and hands, doesn't loose its shine and despite the not very wide brush, the texture is thick enough to apply with ease. I don't …

Oct/02/2013

I can't believe the bad reviews for this mousse! I have wavy hair and have tried about 5-6 other products during last year that promise to add elasticity and definition to my very loose curls (make them tighter and bouncier), and this is the only one that actually works. I have tried using some of the other mousses in my closet because I hate paying in vain for them, but none adds extra …Read more

A very basic hydration cream that manages to not irritate my somewhat sensitive skin, and not introduce any more redness than I already have. It has been repeated many times to me this pas year that hydration and not anti-aging care is what's important to maintain a healthy, beautiful skin, so I decided to ditch the more expensive and complicated formulas I'd been using, and turn to …Read more
