Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

Feb/21/2016

I went through an entire tube, but only because I felt obligated to after spending that much money.

I found it to dry my skin out. After washing my face, it would feel tight and dry. Surprising, considering that everyone and their dog seems to claim that it's nice and gentle and totally not stripping at all.

Also claims that it takes off makeup - and it does, just not …

Moisturizers - Avene - Hydrance Optimale Legere (Light Hydrating Cream)

I like the smell, and the feel when I put it on. It works just fine as a moisturiser. Works well under makeup, but then again I don't put on heavy foundation ever really.

I actually like it a lot, but it doesn't do much, and I don't think the price justifies the value it brings. I wouldn't buy it again, because I think that for what it offers - a basic moisturiser - …

Lip Treatments - L'Occitane - 10% shea butter anti-drying lip balm

First impressions - this lip balm has an odd texture. It's gritty and hard. Takes some warming up before I'm able to apply it (and I'm in Hawaii, too). Smells strange. Not sure how to describe it, but I'm not a fan.

Upon more usage, it made my lips more chapped, red, and inflamed. And later on, it made the area around the mouth and lips red and itchy. It felt like …

May/20/2011

I've tried this a few times, and it really does clean my pores out a bit. However, it doesn't get rid of blackheads. It leaves my face looking very clean (I mean, even cleaner than usual). I don't really like the smell-sorta minty and creamy at the same time. I don't like how small the opening in the tube is because product dries around the edges. Then, it's hard to get …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Desert Essence - Almond Hand and Body Lotion

May/20/2011

I don't know why everyone doesn't like this more. Me, I have a strange skin problem that crops up whenever I'm stressed out or wash my hands too much. My skin just gets really itchy and inflamed. Anyway, I haven't found a lotion that'll make the itching/problem go away...until this one. Other lotions would just worsen the problem or not do anything. But this one, this one …Read more

I love this product! It actually stays on the waterline, and for long stretches of time too (hours!). I bought this in black, and it seems to go on really well for me. It's a bit hard to sharpen though. It just...kind of sticks or something, but I can't sharpen it. It does smoke pretty well, and is easy to remove (at least for me). This is my new HG!!

Nov/18/2008

I really thought that this product wouldn't work because it didn't have a waxy feel. It turned out that it is more moisturizing (for me, anyway). I think it's a bit expensive for its price, but this is way better than any other lip balm that I've tried. Unlike what some other people said, this does NOT dry out my lips. I've actually gone through 3 tubes already (I've …Read more

Cleansers - St. Ives - Apricot Face Wash -- Blemish and Blackhead Control ] [DISCONTINUED]

3.0

Sep/09/2008

This was really good....until it dried my face out. But it only happened in the winter, so I changed my cleanser. I can only use this in the summer...This is probably because my skin is more of a....normal type.
Oh, and the pump for this didn't work for me, so I had to use one of my own caps.
I will probably just use up my current bottle and never buy again.

I tried this product out and discovered that the color is amazing. However, it was a little hard to use the packaging. Also, it was a little sticky and hard to put on my skin.
Edit: It's still very sticky. It's near impossible to put on my skin. A shame, as it's such a beautiful color.
