Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Instantelixir Proactive Repair

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2018

Instantelixir is a peptide and moisturizing gel cream in a plastic jar. It's claim to fame rests on the successful appearance of the creators on Shark Tank. I don't watch the show, but have to admit, i was swayed to jump on the trial of this product in part because of the support they gained from the show. You can try it free, paying only for shipping. After that, you will be shipped a …Read more

Dry Shampoo - PANTENE - Pro V Dry Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/17/2017

I had very low expectations upon purchase, i just needed an urgent cheap freshening. I could have purchased my usual go -to Batiste, but I was curious. And even though I do not like any shampoo or conditioner in the Pantene line, I impulsively snagged it.
Right off, I am favorable impressed by the fragrance: fresh, clean, adult, not cloying, powdery or trendy. It left no white residue. Some …

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50

Apr/17/2017

I am so very impressed! this ss could replace bb cream or sheer foundations. It feels like nothing on the skin, very light and no slimey silicone residues. The tint itself is going to be a sticking point for many, will work best for yellow to olive based skin in light to med range. It is a half shade darker thatn my winter skin, but the tone is perfect for me so it is easy to make it work. It …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Digital Dreams

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2017

If you are looking for a holo-glitter in clear base that delivers 3-4 flecks of glitter per coat, this beautiful bottle in the Kandee Johnson collection is for you. Obviously meant to be a topper / transformer to other colors, but still needs at least 2x's the glitter to payoff, imo. Two coats is still a very meager display. On top of which, if you like to finish glitter polish with a clear …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Mermaid Tail

Mar/14/2017

As you know, SinfulColors is quite a standout for their quality and low price, usually less than $3usd a bottle. This color from the Kandee Johnson collection is a spectacular duo-chrome sea green with gold highlight and peacock low. The formula? wow! the flow and self leveling for this particular color are such a pleasure to use, even better than many other SinfulColors, which are usually …Read more

Lip Treatments - Qtica - Intense Lip Repair Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2017

My usual lip savior nuxe, was just not able to redeem my painfully dry cracked lips this winter. It would ease the pain while wearing, but once it wore off, lips had no improvement. The qtica ounce per ounce, is more expensive than the nuxe. But it's healing powers are proportionately greater, and it is psychologically easier to lay out $12 for the smaller tube than $20 for the little nuxe …Read more

Treatments (Face) - L'Oreal Paris - RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisterizer spf30

Oct/17/2016

Bought this on a whim as I was running out of ss, about to travel and thought this one product might replace taking two bottles along. I am now on my second bottle and am very pleased with performance of the product. The spf30 is from high quality chemical filters with adequate uva filters. I am outside all day almost every day, and this has prevented any hyperpigmentation that I would absolutely …Read more

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Ozone Layer Deodorant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2015

Ozone Layer deodorant is simple, 3 ingredients: shea butter, beeswax, oxygen. (If you get one of the scented versions, it would also then contain some EO like lemon grass, tea tree, jasmine, etc.)

I have used both the scented and unscented versions and find little difference between them. I think the scents could help make the ozone scent a little more palatable for the uninitiated …

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - EverPure Sulfate Free Blonde Brass Banisher shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2015

The shampoo fails to deliver on its prime claim, reducing brass tones. It really has no power at all in that department, even on my highlights that are only slightly brassy. As a low sulfate shampoo, it performs comparably to the other poo in L'oreals Everpure line. I like its creamy suds and its low herbally frag. I do not like products that stand on their end caps as invariably the caps …Read more
