The main ingredient in this is castor oil, and I had castor oil from trying this lash growth experiment a year or so ago. I was very diligent applying castor oil with my finger along my lashline for 3 days and then I wasn't so diligent. It was not pleasant getting castor oil in my eyes, and that is probably why I finally stopped doing it. This year, I decided to try again and again was …Read more

This has good ingredients and works great as an after-shower moisturizer, but it smells like Play-dough, so I won't be buying again. I add a capful to my bath along with some nice smelling essential oils to mask the smell, and come out moisturized nicely.

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Raw Honey

Jan/04/2013

I don't use raw honey as a cleanser. I don't use any cleanser unless I'm wearing makeup, and that's only if it's waterproof makeup like mascara. Every night I use a hot wet washcloth to steam and clear out my pores, and then just a drop or two of the raw honey rubbed onto my still damp face. I rub for a good 2 or 3 minutes until it is completely absorbed. I used to …Read more

I love the smell. I have the spritzer, the hand & body cream, and I have the lotion. I think it smells very fruity and sweet and I love to layer it on. Since I have dry skin, I will use the cream and not the lotion for my body and hands. The lotion is just not moisturizing enough for me. I do have a use for it though. I make a leave-in conditioner spritzer for my hair with it! I fill …Read more

Feb/16/2011

I do this once every week, but my recipe is slightly different and I don't shampoo it out. I use 3 egg yolks, a few squirts of the GVP Conditioning balm and 6 drops of rosemary essential oil. I mix these together thoroughly and it is just enough mixture to put in my armpit length very thick curly hair from scalp to ends. I apply and leave on for 2 hours under a shower cap and a heating …Read more

Jan/06/2011

I was shopping for a mascara as I had left my "My Biggest Lashes" at our other house (perhaps on purpose so I would need to get a new mascara!). I was in Walgreens yesterday waiting for a prescription to be ready and went up and down the makeup aisles. This was on an end cap display as something new from Maybelline. Maybelline eye makeup was buy one get one 50% off. I had actually …Read more

Dec/13/2010

I am a 32C, and finding that size in general department stores isn't possible so I have to settle for something that doesn't quite fit to save money. So, for special occasions, I have splurged on the $45 bras that make me look really good when I really want to look good. I have 5 or so. And even if you aren't going to buy a bra there, it's a good idea to get measured every …Read more

Dec/07/2010

I originally bought this in gold 1 1/2 weeks ago. It worked fine and I had no problems with it, but it didn't do anything special for my eyes. Although I thought about getting more of these at CVS since I got an amazing 75% off on them, I talked myself out of it since I have so many eyeliners already. I didn't know the CVS sale was to go on indefinitely, and because I started really …Read more

I went to the Indian store to look for the Hashmi kajal stick I had read about here and couldn't find it. I asked the store clerk if he had kajal and he showed me this. It is a quarter sized round flat green plastic container of cake liner housed in a tiny square cardboard box with a picture of a woman holding a baby on it. You are supposed to apply it with your finger to the waterline …Read more

Nov/23/2010

I tried this last week when it was marked 75% off at CVS. I got this shade because it was highly rated and I have never used a gold eyeliner before. I bought it and tried it on in the parking lot. I gave the packaging a 2 because it wasn't sealed in plastic so anyone could have opened it before I got there. I rubbed the stick on the inside of the container to get all the excess powder …Read more
