I have only used these wax strips on my underarms, so keep that in mind as you read on. I .ut a strip in half to use on my underarms and it takes about 4-5 "pulls" per underarm to remove the hairs (I'm left with only 2-3 stubborn strays). For my the fine hairs in my underarms area, I'd say these wax strips are really good.

The oil that comes with this set comes in …

From reading the description I thought this would be a unique scent.. even from smelling the bottle it smells like CK Euphoria to me. Very strong synthetic notes... not very nice or unique. Upside if you like this scent is that it seems to wear very well, 8+ hours on me one spray.

Polishes - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Pro

I purchased this in 140 (French Rose). The brush is wide and minimizes streaks, the formula is nice and creamy. I find that 2 coats is enough, 3 for a true opaque look. It dries fairly quickly in comparison with some other high-end nail polishes. Tip wear is minimal (no top coat) after 5 days. The new square packaging looks nice, and I wouldn't change a thing about the product in general!

I like the feel of this gentle scrub and how it doesn't leave my face tight and dry after use. However, I break out EVERY TIME I use this. (I use a cleansing oil, then AoBs, then toner) I switched back to my old cleanser and my skin is calm again. Will not repurchase!

I got this for under $2CAD! I suspect it may be discontinued. Good deals aside, this is a really beautiful color in the bottle, milk-white with subtle pale blue shimmer. After 2 coats it's difficult to see the shimmer, however, I layer a 3rd coat of pale gold shimmer over top and it looks gorgeous. I'd upload a picture but it's on my toes! Bad thing about this nail polish is that …Read more

I got this on sale for about $2 Canadian (I think because these may be discontinued?) and I love the color; perfect when paired with a smokey eye. The smell is really something awful though, I've used this maybe twice and will not be using it again. Such a shame, for the price it's a nice gloss!

This mascara works nicely on my lashes. It doesn't give my lashes much curl, however, it does give them lots of length and volume. It doesn't smudge, or flake at all. Most importantly, it does not make my eyelashes fall out! Packaging is a bit childish IMO, but I'd repurchase when I run out!

I bought this in the lightest shade (110) and it was a little bit too light, but the next shade up was way too orange and dark. I have been using Revlon Colorstay and was looking for something a bit more sheer. Big mistake.. this was way too sheer. Although it was sheer coverage, it felt so heavy and greasy. On top of that, it literally transfers onto anything.. I have combination skin but with …Read more

2 coats over a base coat gives me the most delicate pastel pink! (: a bit too thick though, or maybe I got a bad batch ): It clumps sometimes, and I just got my bottle yesterday!
