I have straight Asian lashes and this holds a curl, is super black, lengthens and volumizes as well as my Diorshow. It also lasted through a major tear session, leaving my lashes only slightly uncurled (whereas the best I've tried leaves them completely straight), and all product intact- no flaking or smearing off whatsoever. On me, it builds volume and lengthens extremely well. I don't …Read more

Although I have no complaints about the consistency or taste of this toothpaste, every time after I use it the inside of my mouth and lips peels and I end up with a gummy film that I have to wipe away. It's actually pretty disgusting and I have no idea why that is. On another note, I have also not seen any drastic improvements in the health of my teeth, gums and mouth, any more so than other …Read more

This is a decent average drugstore body wash. It does smell nice but I don't find that it delivers too much moisture, and also there are tons and tons of suds. It does not interest me in repurchasing because it's so middle of the road, but it does the job fine as a shower wash.

I absolutely love this conditioner. I have long colored hair, normal-oily roots, dryish ends, and a mixture of fine and medium hair that tends to get weighed down very easily. Along with the shampoo, they make my hair soft, shiny, weightless, supremely manageable and super healthy looking. I just can't stop touching my hair, it's so soft and bouncy. I do find it to be on the more …Read more

This product is expensive, yes, but it makes my hair like silk. I never knew my hair could feel this luxurious and soft and yet voluminous and weightless at the same time. It's truly amazing. It's a real treat, along with the conditioner, and I plan on using once or twice a week as it is a very nourishing protein treatment for the hair.

I really like this conditioner. I typically have oily roots and wavy hair that tends to lose its volume by midday, but this was a very pleasant surprise. Even though it's a balm it is a fantastic conditioner, leaves my ends really glossy and soft, and the rest of my hair still hydrated and weightless, which is amazing when I typically have to use 2 conditioners- a heavier one to treat the …Read more

I really loved this shampoo- I've tried a lot of high end and salon ones- Phyto, Leonor Greyl, Bumble & Bumble, Terax, Fekkai, Oscar Blandi, Neil George, etc- and was so impressed with this that I bought it. I have long hair with normal-oily roots, fine to medium thick hair, dyed, dryish ends. This made my hair so soft, shiny, weightless, and with a ton of volume- almost like I used a …Read more

This is a great product. It's super lightweight and dries to kind of a cream-gel finish. I am notoriously sensitive face creams and serums, pretty much everything breaks me out, but this has not at all. It has 2% salicylic which helps with blackheads particularly. It's the right amount of moisture for combo skin. Personally though, I prefer Skin Biology's lac sal cream more just …Read more

Jul/30/2010

This is a very effective glycolic acid based facial cleanser with small scrub particles. The particles are not as round and cushy as those from say Peter Thomas Roth, but with the glycolic acid they do an amazing job of getting rid of dead skin and giving your face a really effective double dose of both chemical and manual exfoliation. So effective in fact, that I only use this about once a week …Read more

I had been a devotee of Skinceuticals vit C products but decided to give this a whirl since I've heard so much about the brand and it contains green tea which I've heard has more antioxidant power than C. I was concerned that it could be too harsh over time, break me out, ball up under makeup or sunscreen, etc but I have experienced nothing but clear smooth skin the entire time …Read more
