Cleansers - Simple - Cleansing Micellar Water

I wanted to like this product, but there were a couple problems:

- it took 4-5 cotton pads soaked with product to completely remove my light application of foundation and mascara. So I went through half the bottle pretty fast.
- it left a film on my face, which meant my face did not feel dry afterward - but the film was oily-feeling & I believe it clogged my pores …

Shampoo - Marc Anthony - volumizing collagen bamboo sulfate free shampoo

This is an excellent shampoo - lathers well, adds some volume and keeps my highlights looking like they had just been done. I use the matching conditioner which is also colour safe & sulfate-free. I never get a lot of volume from volumizing shampoos & this one is no exception, but it does leave my hair very manageable and doesn't flatten at the first opportunity.

Moisturizers - Olay - Complete All Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 Sensitive

I was looking for a moisturizer with SPF for winter use, and bought this. This product felt greasy going on, but sunk into my skin OK so I left it on. That was a mistake, because the next day I had the biggest pimple on my cheek & I haven't broken out in ages. So, now I will use it as body moisturizer, not face.
Oily/combination skin people - beware of this product!

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double-Extend Beauty Tubes in Blackest Black

This product is great at not smudging & being easy to remove with warm water and I will buy it again just for that. However, after a few uses, both the mascara and primer comes out in clumps on the brushes and I have to remove the clumps with tissues before I can use it - this cuts down on the already small amount of product in each end, so I took off a lippie for that.

Hair Removal - Olay - Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

I have lots of fine pale hair on my upper lip. Waxing or cream depilatories left me with reddened skin for days, before I found this product. It works very well for me; I have no redness or sensitive area after using it. I do avoid putting anything but the mildest moisturizer on afterwards, but if I've used this product in the evening I proceed with my skin routine as usual the next day. I …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Fresh Foaming Cleanser

This cleanser works quite well for me & can remove foundation, mascara + physical sunscreen in one go. I apply a thin layer of Retin-A after cleaning, & don't have flakes or tautness afterwards so I don't find this cleanser too drying for combination skin.

Misc Beauty Tools - Olay - Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

I have been using this product for two months & feel it has definitely helped my skin - exfoliates very well, leaves my skin feeling very clean and smooth; plus my Vivier vitamin C serum seems to soak in faster and be more effective when I apply it right after using the Pro-X brush. I like to start the brush by running it for a few seconds on a bit of cleanser held in the palm of my hand, so …Read more

ITA with the reviewers who said that this product leaves your hair very dry and tangled. It did smooth the frizzies but is just not worth the dry crunchy feeling. Save your money.

Hair Treatments - Aphogee - Two-Step Protein Treatment

Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2010

Used the Aphogee treatment for the first time a few days ago.
I bought the single use two-step packet, which contained just barely enough product for my shoulder-length hair. I shampooed my hair, combed through and let dry a bit, and then sectioned it & applied the treatment. The smell – well, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be after reading all the reviews here. The main …

Treatments (Eye) - L'Oreal Paris - Revitalift Double Lifting Eye

I find the lifting gel works very well - tightens up the loose skin on my eyelids. The anti-wrinkle cream I find to be quite ordinary, nothing special. I've used this product for several years now, just for the lifting gel.
