Toners - Unlisted Brand - Vivant - Mandelic Acid Toner 3%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2012

This is my HG toner! Mandelic acid is an AHA, and it works wonderfully at lightly chemically exfoliating my face. Its brilliant. It keeps my skin smooth and clear. The first time I used it, I was shocked at how immediately (the very next morning!) my skin looked and felt. The smell, to be honest, is like pure alcohol. Its very strong and makes my eyes and nose burn when I use too much on a cotton …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Vivant Mandelic Acid 3 in 1 Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2012

This is hands down, my HG cleanser. Despite only the 3% mandelic acid, its brilliant at both minimizing my pores and chemically exfoliating my face. I've been using this alongside my Vivant 3% mandelic acid toner and both have done amazing jobs at clearing up any breakouts and keeping my skin even, smooth and clear. Not my favorite scent (none of the products are particularly nose-pleasing) …Read more

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Advantage 3 in 1 Foaming Acne Wash

Feb/12/2012

The ratings just shocked my socks! I haven't noticed any burning, peeling, itching or excessive dryness from using this product at all! I have normal-combo skin and have been breaking out recently, so I purchased this cleanser. It comes out in a clear, gel like consistency that slowly foams up on your face and use rub it in. The smell is quite strong though, but I like it. When I'm …Read more

Styling Products - Clairol - Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Smoothing Mousse

This mousse is AMAZING. It claims that "My formula delivers a foamy dose of softness and smoothness that helps keep everything just the way you like it." And it does exactly what it claims. The directions say to shake it up, flip it over and foam it out, and work it through damp hair. I follow these directions and then do my own thing. When I come out of the shower, I blow dry my hair …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Flared Mascara

Jan/08/2012

To be honest, I bought this because I was looking for a cheap thrill mascara from the d/s. And this was around 7 dollars, so I bought it. The packaging is adorable, and thats the only thing I like about it really.
I have NEVER gotten spider lashes as quickly as I have with this mascara. It was ridiculous. I tried multiple ways of layering, wearing one coat alone, etc. The only thing that …

Skincare - Face - SHISEIDO - Benefiance NutriPerfect Night Cream

Dec/30/2011

I originally purchased this night cream for my mother's mature skin, as it is its purpose. It comes in a gorgeous gold-top container, and the weight is so nice. Not the best cream to carry around with you for trips, but you could always scoop some out into a smaller, plastic jar. The cream comes with a small scoop so that you don't have to constantly dip your fingers into the cream …Read more

Fragrances - benefit Cosmetics - Maybe Baby

4.0

Maybe Baby is a very light, flory, and fruity scent. The notes that really stand out to me are Cyclamen and Peach. There is a very light musk scent that comes out in the drydown, which is really nice.

Loose Powders - benefit Cosmetics - One Hot Minute [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2011

I bought this on a whim. As I always do with Benefit. Something about the brand just draws me to it everytime I go to sephora, ulta, or any other department store. One Hot Minute is a shimmery rose gold loose powder that I use to highlight my face. I have light-med skin, and this works best as a all-around face highlighter. Its very pretty on, but the hassle of using the product is a bit too much …Read more

Aug/21/2011

Birthday Suit is a gorgeous shimmery taupe color, both in the pan and on the lids. Its a swipe-and-go color, as well as a base for both neutral and smoky eye looks. I love it paired with Mac Satin Taupe, Nars Ashes to Ashes and Benefit Where There's Smoke and Fawn Over Me Velvet Shadows. Beautiful!
