I've tried basically every drugstore shelf facial cleanser (Olay, Aveeno, Neutrogena, Cerave, Simple, etc. etc. etc.) and have decided that they are just not suitable for my needs anymore. They are too harsh, they have too much perfume, I get eventual red patches, and so on. I decided to try this mid-price cleanser made in France. The name is a bit audacious: "Caring Wash"! Wow …Read more

PROS:
- big color payoff for the small money
- moisturizing and never looks like your lips are dried out

CONS:
- incredibly cheap packaging. Remember those 99 cent Wet'n'Wild lipsticks that you first got as a teenager? Same packaging. It looks, feels (in your hand) and sounds (the way the cap clicks into the base) CHEAP. If this fell out of my purse in public …

For $5 CAD, you can't beat this. This highlighter packs a big beam for just a tiny bit of money. Precious Petals looks perfect on me, especially after I've applied my powder foundation, I look a bit "flat" and 2D. This highlighter brings back dimension to my face. I have found that brushing on the powder is not the best way to apply this. It just kind of sits on the top of …Read more

It is extremely satisfying to see how quickly my powder foundation and sunscreen are removed in a few swipes on a cotton pad with this cleansing water. It's fast, inexpensive (around $10 CAD for the large bottle) efficient, does the job well and I can wash my face this way while keeping my eye makeup intact. As a working parent with a full time job, I am always in a rush and it's nice …Read more

In short: My face just drinks this up and I look tight and glowy!

Backstory: I've been using Retin-A for about 2 years now (see my reviews). It's really strong stuff so I wanted to ease up on it. I bought this cream serum for $25 at London Drugs because I like their facial cleansers.

On first try my skin soaked this up right away and after a few days, my complexion …

Contact lens wearers beware! The Cocoaloco pencil looks great with my brown eyes as it brings out the gold tones. But it’s a double edged sword and I’m not willing to battle. The gold flecks adhere at first but then fall off during the day. My contact lens wearing eyeballs feel irritated and my vision goes blurry with the gold flecks stuck to my lenses. This pencil is also terrible if you play …Read more

This is like paint and the effect on your lips is just gross. It’s too opaque; your lips lose all dimension. The color is bold on the back of your hand and may look attractive. But on your face, it’s just too much. I got 30 Romantic (pink) and 25 Heroine (red). I actually felt relief when I got home and scrubbed it off with coconut oil. Maybe I will give these to graffiti artists and they can …Read more

This does detangle your hair, but it coats it. And if you keep using this conditioner, you'll notice your hair getting flatter and flatter and more stuck to your head. On warm days, my hair feels really gross from the coating; my hair almost feels damp to the touch. I would suggest only using this conditioner only sporadically and not regularly/daily. Definitely would not buy …Read more

This is a very intense orange-red matte liquid lipstick. The formula is not long-wearing, so after you eat something, you'll have this ring of color on the outer parts of your lips and nothing in the center (it's very noticeable with a color this intense). I actually hate the sponge-tip applicator. Imagine trying to put on a seriously deep color with a Q-Tip. A more precise applicator …Read more

I've heard so much about Skin Food and so when it was on sale at Choices, I had to try it.

Great for my hands! I wash my hands A LOT due to a very busy work environment, and from all the washing and hand sanitizing, my hands are really parched. I layer on Skin Food before bedtime, and my hands feel so much better in the morning, and actually, for a few days afterward too. This is …
