Hair Treatments - Alberto VO5 - Hot Oil Shower Works

Mar/12/2007

I hated this stuff. The BEST oil treatment for you hair is plain, warmed, Olive oil. Vo5 hot oil has too much stuff in it. Anyway, put the olive oil in the microwave for 30 seconds (or until warm) and apply it to DRY hair. Wrap your hair in plastic first, followed by a warm towel. I leave it in for 20 min. Shampoo it out (no conditioner) once or twice, and blow dry. It feels like dandelion fluff …Read more

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm-Laguna Blush-Bronzer Duo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2006

I have olive/tan skin with yellow undertones, so Laguna doesn't show up on me as much as I'd like but layering helps. Its a really pretty bronzer. Its a simple light brown with a little shimmer. NO orange/copper tones. I was afriad that Orgasm would not show up on me. When I looked at the compact I was scared of how much shimmer there was in it. I tried it anyway and it was so …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - volum express washable mascara curved brush

I LOVE this. I was disapointed when Target didn't have the normal kind with the straight brush but I bought this anyway on a whim. I use it on top of Almay's One-Coat Lengthening and WOW. It seriously looks like I have fake lashes on. I love the combination of the two. On its own, Volume Express is a great mascara for a thicker but still natural look. No clumps! :)

This stuff is great when under a voluming masacara. On its own, it lengthens AND thickens and the brush is great. I can't imagine this stuff clumping. I use it under Maybelline's Volume Express (Regular, NOT Turbo-Boost) to make my eye lashes look like falsies. Great stuff.

I would have hated this mascara if I hadn't read the reviews/how to apply it first. Despite the 33% rating I ran out and bought it last week with a metal eye lash comb. <br>
This definately is NOT a product to play fast-and-loose with. You MUST apply it slowly, with a light hand... don't dig into your lashes like you would with a brush mascara.<br>
Here's how …

1.0

Nov/01/2006

Horrilble applicator, chemical smell, stings my NON-sensitive eyes, flakes, dries roughly/jagged/clumpy, and it makes my eyes swell. My lashes didnt turn out okay, or even acceptable. This stuff is really, really , bad. Physicians Formula is cheaply made, over-priced GARBAGE.

Sep/01/2006

I dont understand the bad reviews. I like this moisturizer because it makes my dry skin really soft. Its not really MOIST, just tolerable and smooth, and I like that. (Im on kind of a harsh acne regimen right now so being able to talk/move my face without my face tightening up is a bonus) I guess it depends on your preferences though.<br> Overall this is very light, absorbs quickly and I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Clean & Clear - Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication

Sep/01/2006

AMAZING. 2.5% Benzoyl peroxides just werent cutting it for me. Neither were my perscriptions. I've tried: menocyclin, tazorac cream, retin A, and proactive. None of them worked in the long run. My skin just seemed to shed, but I still suffered from HORRIBLE cystic acne and CONSTANT annoying whiteheads. I dont think I had gone a day without a pimple on my face. I read the excellent reviews …Read more

Treatments (Face) - AcneFree - Acne and Blackhead Terminator

5.0

Aug/16/2006

This product for me worked better than my old prescriptions, and proactive, and the Acne free 3-step system. Its a clear gel, absorbs fast, and has relatively low doses of benzoyl peroxide (1%) and salicylic acid (1.5%). This is the first product I've seen with the two medicines combined. I havent gotten a cyst since I started using it, and it seemed to even out my skin tone. Its drying at …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

Jul/31/2006

Im Indonesian/German with sort of roundish-almond shaped eyes and this curler fits them perfectly. I've tried Covergirl and Revlon curlers before and I found them to be too round/ not wide enough and only curl the lashes in the center of my eyelid. To me, this was definately worth the money, it grabs every lash and fits my eye shape. And thats really what it boils down to, it depends on your …Read more
