Shampoo - OGX - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo

1.0

Jul/21/2012

The smell is really the only thing going for this shampoo. The consistency of this shampoo is bizarre, a mixture between silky and slimy (like the feeling of aloe vera gel) and it's easy to squeeze out too much of this shampoo or have it slip out of your hands when you go to lather it before hair application (due to the gel consistency). The smell is divine, but the cleansing qualities of …Read more

Toners - Dickinson's Brands - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2012

I have used quite a few toners at this point from LUSH, Boots, Avalon, and other brands as well. I was excited to try the Dickinson's line and while I like the 100% natural witch hazel face wash, I am not a fan of this toner.
At first I thought it was working well on my skin, but over time I noticed increased redness, irritation and dryness of my skin. The culprit being the alcohol …

Cleansers - Simple - Exfoliating Facial Wipes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2012

These wipes are fantastic really. I'm surprised there's only a few reviews of them, because they have done wonders for my sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin. These are the first wipes I've used in adult years, I use to buy Neutrogena wipes as a teen but they became too costly for me in my college years, and I wasn't sure they were a necessity in my life.
In comes Simple …

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

Jun/16/2012

I'm NW 20-25 and I wear this foundation in 150 Buff. This is a great "summer shade" for my skin tone, in Winter I will definitely wear Ivory as Buff runs a little dark and yellow for Winter pale skin. I consider myself a foundation lover, but I am rarely impressed with face products (particularly from drugstores). For me, this foundation is better than any other I've tried and …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Lulu Organic Hair Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2012

At first I was impressed with this powder (I bought the travel size version) but gradually this seemed to work less and less effectively for my hair. I like that it's organic and doesn't have that nasty baby powder smell so many other dry shampoo products have. And honestly, this powder has lasted me a really long time (over a year at least). That's pretty remarkable.
Now …

Treatments (Face) - Philosophy - Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Concentrate

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2012

Thankfully I only tried a 2ml sample of this cream because the effects are plain frightening. It came out of the package looking like any other night cream, thick yet smooth upon application. However within 1-2 min time my face was as red as a stop sign. Sometimes when I apply night creams I get that initial pink flush that soon goes away but that was not the case with this cream. It left my skin …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Dollface

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2012

This blush was a pretty big miss for me as well. This is the first Tarte Amazonian Clay blush I've tried but based off this blush alone I'm not sure I'll purchase another. The color looks beautiful in the pan, a light yet highly pigmented pink that's neither too cool or too warm in tone. My brush picked up this blush pretty easily which I liked but when I transferred it onto …Read more

Lipstick - ULTA - Lipstick

Apr/28/2012

I really enjoy ULTA lipsticks! They're super inexpensive ($8 regular but Ulta always has BOGO free sales so $4-AMAZING). The color range is awesome, they have a lot more shades to choose from than I would have ever expected.
I bought two lipsticks that are brown-pink-nudes (going for the "My lips but better" look) and I love love the colors!
Application is not my absolute …

Fragrances - CLEAN - Outdoor Shower Fresh

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2012

Icky, icky no thank you. At first this smell is a little alluring, it's a rich "fresh, grassy, earthy" smell that seems like an interesting fragrance choice for Spring/Summer. But upon application it is not pleasant one bit. The base is so alcoholic that you wreak for a good 10 minutes after you spray it on. It's musky and a little putrid at first, the dry down being a little …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - PhotoReady Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2012

This foundation did not make the cut for me. I first tried it a year or so ago and I enjoyed it the first few applications. The packaging is nice (love pump bottles), and the consistency is very fluid and gives a smooth application. Color selection is pretty good (not good as Revlon Colorstay), but overall Revlon's foundation shades work well for my skin tone so I am naturally drawn to their …Read more
