Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Lipstick (All Shades)

4.0

3 months ago

I’ve worn Maybelline lipsticks for years and have never had a difficult time finding flattering shades (which has not been my experience with some other brands). Maybelline has a superb selection of just what I want: cool pinks, reds, and plums/berries that aren’t garishly bright. My favorite Color Sensational shades so far are Pink Wink, Plum Paradise, Summer Sunset, and Ruby Star on Summer …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick (All Shades)

2.0

3 months ago

Really disappointed with the Super Lustrous color selection. I liked the formulation (creamy, moisturizing, unscented) and price (4.97 USD) of these lipsticks, and wanted to find some to love, but I found the majority of the shades to be too warm, too brown, or too bright. This line unfortunately isn’t geared towards cool complexions (fair with pink undertones).

I’ve worn Maybelline …

Toners - Alba Botanica - Acnedote Deep Cleaning Astringent

I started using this to replace a Neutrogena astringent, which had become too harsh for my skin. It's noticeably more gentle but still stings more than I'd like. I mostly use witch hazel for toner, but add some of this on the cotton ball, too, mostly for my T-zone. It's cleansing and refreshing without drying, and helps my complexion. Love the green ingredients.

I wish …

Cleansers - Alba Botanica - Good & Clean Gentle Acne Wash

Jan/24/2016

Favorite face wash ever. Perfect for my oily, acne prone skin that is sensitive to harsh treatments and doesn't like to be stripped. I will be so sad if they ever stop making this. So gentle and smooth, lathers nicely, thoroughly cleansing. Love the smell and gel texture. It brightens up my complexion. Sometimes I don't even feel like I need moisturizer after using this.

I …

Love this. Hope they never stop making it. Bought it to replace St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which was too harsh and stripping my skin. I use it on my face and chest, back, and shoulders, where I'm also prone to clogs and minor breakouts. It has also replaced Neutrogena's Body Clear Body Scrub for me.

This one's still got scrubbing power, so you don't want to rub too …

I was looking for a greener replacement for Clean & Clear's Dual Action Moisturizer, and this is the winner. C&C's also was no longer moisturizing enough for me.

I still struggle with mild acne even at 30, especially around ovulation. My skin is mostly clear, definitely better than it was when I was a teen and in my early 20s, but I've always got at least 1 or 2 …

Love this shampoo and conditioner. I've been using it for 5 years. My stylist at the time got me to switch from Herbal Essences, and it does a so much better job of preserving my color. HE was stripping all my color right out.

My hair is naturally thick, wavy, on the dry side, and prone to frizz. This shampoo and conditioner smells great, cleans oil and buildup well, and gives a …

Jan/24/2016

Will not buy again. I have a nearly full bottle I need to donate to my local homeless shelter because it is just sitting in my shower, not getting used. I should have returned it, but life got crazy.

My main complaint is that it doesn't wash well enough. I like to use dry shampoo to skip an extra day or two between washes, and this shampoo does a very poor job of removing oil and …

Hair Color - Clairol - Born Blonde Toner

2.0

Jul/06/2010

My natural hair is a level 6-7 ashy dark blonde/light brown color. I can't afford salon prices so I've been dying my hair for years to a level 8.5 to 9 golden blonde. My hair pulls a lot of red/gold while bleaching (only process that seems to lift it), so a good toner is VITAL for me... unless I want neon hair!

Of course, my go-to toner (Loreal's Tone Refiner TR1) got …
