Normally a devoted (????????????) Bioderma user, but ran out! Grabbed this as a stop-gap and am pleasantly surprised! Though it doesn’t remove my eye make-up as well as Bioderma, it is really nice for cleansing my sensitive acne-prone face! While Bioderma definitely leaves my skin more matte, this leaves me feeling a tad more dewy, in a really nice way.

The best lipbalm in the universe. It is not glossy (a plus for me!), looks velvety on, smells like vanilla and rose (I want my life to smell like this), super protective due to a slightly waxier formula. It’s my HG and the only lipbalm I’ve gone through multiple full tubes of, and gone right back for the same- no product boredom! One in my bag, one in the bathroom. I seriously look forward to …Read more

WHERE HAS THIS GOLDEN ELIXIR BEEN ALL MY LIFE?! Just the most amazing body oil with the juiciest citrus essential oil smell. Divine! Makes my legs and arms glow, cleared up a big rough patch on my forearm in a couple of days! I use it to remove heavy sunscreen off my face as well. It absolutely works best if your skin is DAMP- key to any body oil sinking in to your skin and not just sitting on …Read more

Delicious! Absolutely smells like a citrusy gin & tonic. Super refreshing! I love the glass bottle- very luxurious feeling. One of those cosmetics you almost want to leave on display because it's so pretty- like most Weleda stuff. It works GREAT! Is a little pricy, but I have used just under half a bottle in 3 months (with a generous 5-6 spritzes per armpit every morning!) so for a 6 …Read more

As someone who has put Vaseline on their lips every night for the past 15 (!!!) years or so, I'm stoked to find a narural alternative to replace my tried and true! This formula is stickier/glossier/geeasier than regular Vaseline, so doesn't work in to cuticles and heels (etc...) as nicely, but for lips it's a treat!! Better than any natural lip balm I've tried (and there have …Read more

Smells good, lathers good... Also weighs down my fine hair like crazy, AND has made my scalp flaky again!!! I usually wash my hair every 2 to 3 days, but I'm already looking forward to getting it away from my face and stuffing it into a bun a couple of hours into "clean hair day"- it doesn't feel this blah and flat on dirty day 3 usually! Pass. If I had paid full-price ($15?? …Read more

Shampoo - John Frieda - Beach Blonde Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo

Either the formula has changed, or my hair has! Used to be one of my favourite shampoos, kept greasy scalp at bay, smelled delish! Still smells delish, but makes my hair brittle dry, and my scalp oily, itchy AND flaky! Even as a weekly clarifying shampoo, it's done more harm than good to my fine wavy hurr in just a couple of uses. Probably better for more robust/less fragile locks.

Well I'll be damned! An SPF protective lip balm that a) isn't pure zinc white on my lips b) isn't drying! I won't go so far as to say super moisturizing, but since I start my morning every day with a layer of Vaseline, it's been just fine! Obviously something a little more emollient would be ideal, but beggars can't be choosers!

Definitely not cheap …

Mar/21/2015

EDIT: Goodbye, fair Neostrata. This formulation just doesn't do what it used to. Maybe it's the new fragrance, maybe the actual composition, but I noticed my pores getting bigger, my skin seemed dehydrated (fine lines where I don't have them!), had a ton more shine, and generally just wasn't wow-ing me like it used to. SOB. Upon the advice of the cosmetics lady, I've …Read more
