I have so many bath/body products and I'm really trying to use my stash up, but by the time I get halfway through many of them, I'm super bored with the product and just want to toss it. This scrub, however, was so incredible that by the time I got to the end of it, I was actually sad it was gone. The scrub itself has a bunch of moisturizing ingredients in it, as well as sugar and …Read more

Scrubs - Clean & Clear - blackhead eraser scrub

Dec/30/2007

I don't think this really did anything to clear up blackheads on my skin, and the little blue beads were really, really annoying. Don't get me wrong; I love exfoliation as much as the next product-obsessed gal, but this stuff is packed full of wayyyyy too many of them, and they wind up in your hair... in your ears... on your friends... all over your bathroom. Not good. I …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream

I know this product is formulated for babies, but I use it on my own skin, which gets pretty dry in the winter, and it's pretty fantastic. It doesn't have much of a scent, so it doesn't clash with my fragrance, and it's really thick. I often have trouble finding lotions that are thick enough, but this one does the trick and the moisturizing effect really lasts a long time. …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Nonie of Beverly Hills- AHA! New Condition Moisturizer

Dec/29/2007

New Condition is an AHA moisturizer that contains a whole bunch of vitamins and essential oils. I'm surprised that Nonie as a brand hasn't had any other products reviewed on MUA because they're pretty reasonably priced (New Condition is about 25 bucks for 50 ml and you really only need a little bit) and seem to be chock full of good ingredients. When I was using this moisturizer …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

Dec/29/2007

This is a pretty basic salyicylic acid gel spot treatment for pimples. It has a more pleasant scent than a lot of other salicylic acid gels I've tried, but other than that there aren't a whole lot of bells and whistles here. If salicylic acid works for you, then this product is probably a good choice because it's relatively inexpensive. I've found after a lot of trial and …Read more

LOVE this gloss! I was a little nervous about the color in the tube and yes, it is on the brighter side, but it just lights up my whole face, and for some reason (maybe because it's on the cooler side of the spectrum?) it makes my blue/green eyes pop like crazy. I actually saw my eyes in the rear-view mirror of my car after putting it on today and said "Whoa!" out loud! …Read more

Oh my gosh... this stuff is seriously terrible. I had high hopes but I had only halfway lined one eye before I had excess powder (which is super smeary and hard to remove) all over my cheeks. I tapped the sponge off like the packaging instructed, but there was still too much on the brush. Ick. I definitely won't be buying this again!

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - Holographic in Sand Castle

I found this on clearance at Shopko for about 1.75 USD. I generally like L'Oreal products but I'm pretty sure this is the least pigmented shadow I've ever owned in my life. It's a pretty shade in the pan, but on, it's literally the exact same shade as my eyelid and it doesn't even show up well enough on my skin to use it as a browbone highlighter. It's a …Read more

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Lip nutrition - passionfruit boosting balm [DISCONTINUED]

This balm gives my lips a nice sheer red tint and it does a good job moisturizing, but the smell is SO strong. It's not a bad scent, per se, but it's just too much too have it that close to my nose all day. I don't know if I'd repurchase, and that's really the only negative thing about this balm but it just really bugs me.

Lips - Neutrogena - MoistureShine tinted lip balm in Clean #20

This is a really pretty tinted balm- just a subtle YLBB rosy color. I love that it has SPF 20, and it's very slippery but not sticky at all. The scent/taste is good- sort of fruity. I'd repurchase, but I'd like to try some of the other colors as well.
