Masks - Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque

5.0

5 months ago

I love this mask so much. It helps soothe my skin during rosacea flares and is great for breakouts. My skin was recently going through a serious purge after I started using a BHA serum again and this helped so much. I could see that my pimples had shrunk as soon as I washed it off! I used it at least once a day on the areas that were broken out during that time (much more than I typically would) …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Conair - Infiniti Pro 1875 AC Motor Dryer

3.0

Aug/30/2018

This hair dryer is very powerful and fast. It would probably be great for someone with a lot of thick hair. However, that is not me. I have fine, wavy/curly hair and it’s ok if I want to blow it out straight, but I can’t use it with a diffuser when my hair is curly. The low setting is like medium/high on some other hair dryers. It blows my hair around too much and makes it frizz. I wish there was …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Ferulic Acid + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum

Dec/21/2016

I bought this based on all of the great reviews here and on Sephora. I was really hoping it would do something for my (genetic) dark circles, even though that was a long shot, but would have been happy with general anti-aging. After about 3 months of almost nightly use I haven't noticed any changes. If anything I might have a couple more fine lines! I got it in a value set with the regular …Read more

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Work It! Full! Flared! Fit! Mascara

Dec/21/2016

I initially really liked this as a natural look mascara. It darkened and defined my lashes, with some minimal volumizing and lengthening. It also did last through the day and workouts without smudging or flaking. However, after a few months (probably around the time I should toss it...) it started smudging under my eyes during the day. Not sure if I was using more moisturizer because winter was …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Boots - Botanics Eye and Lip Correction Serum

Mar/02/2011

After all the good reviews here I was hoping this would work for me. I used it for about two weeks. At first it was fine, and I even thought it might be helping to lessen my dark circles. However after a few days the skin around my eyes started to sting when I put this on. Then my eyelids got itchy and irritated. I stopped using the serum and it went away. I guess I'll have to try again to …Read more

Powder - REVLON - ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup

2.0

Feb/07/2011

I really wanted to like this foundation, as I like Revlon and mineral makeup. Sadly it was not meant to be. First, for a powder with aqua in its name, it is not at all hydrating. As others mentioned it does feel "wet" when you first brush it on, but it definitely highlighted dry areas on my skin and looked obviously powdery and cakey. It was ok after using a strong moisturizer, but …Read more

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Avocado Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2011

I bought some Aura Cacia Avocado Oil at Whole Foods to try as a winter moisturizer, as my face was very dry and my normal moisturizer and jojoba oil weren't helping enough. Unfortunately, it seems that it is too moisturizing for my face for every day use. It takes a very long time to absorb and even then my face feels a bit greasy. So while I wouldn't use it for daily use, I might put …Read more

Dec/01/2009

This stuff is awesome! It totally saved my hair! I had done a lot of coloring and the stylist at the salon suggested a more expensive salon protein treatment. Instead I went to the drug store and found this, only about $7, no animal testing, and so worth it! My dry damaged hair feels soft and looks shiny! I feel like it's also made my hair feel thicker. I recently ran out and was trying a …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Shiny Sheers [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2009

I love love love these! I'm not a huge fan of lipstick due to the texture and because I prefer a more sheer color, so this is perfect. It feels like lip gloss but gives me a nice light color and a little bit of shine. I have glistening rose which is the perfect color on me, a light pinkish red with a little bit of sparkle. I also have the light pink (sheer blossom I think) and the ruby or …Read more

Mar/12/2009

Wow, I love this stuff! Closest thing to an HG foundation I've found! I don't know where to start. It's a very smooth foundation that blends beautifully with my skin and makes it look so even toned (which it's not!). It does give me a nice dewy glow so it might not be for you if you like a more matte finish. I'm not sure about the anti-aging properties since I thankfully …Read more
