Masks - Unlisted Brand - May Lindstrom- The Problem Solver

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2015

I resisted May Lindstrom for a while based on price point, but after receiving a very generous sample of this and ended up buying a full size jar.

This mask is supposed to "effectively purifies and tightens pores, extinguishes inflammations, fights and heals blemishes, jump-starts circulation in the epidermis and detoxifies skin" and I can say yes to all the above. …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - One Love Organics - Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil + Makeup Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2014

Heavenly tropical scent that lifts my mood.

I apply a small amount into my palm and slightly rub until it foams a bit and then massage it into my skin. I add warm water to help emulsify and rinse off. I do a final swipe with a warm muslin cloth to ensure all makeup is gone and for slight exfoliation.

I am left with clean, make-up free, moisturized skin that does not …

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Schmidt's Natural Deodorant - Bergamot + Lime

Oct/25/2014

I 2nd everything said by the previous reviewer. This has replaced soapwalla for me. I feel it works better and I prefer this scent much more than soapwalla's herbal scent.

Aside from the effectiveness, I feel good about this product from the ingredients to the glass packaging. I also like I can pick it up on amazon

I have not only repurchased several times but have …

Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Rahua Finishing Treatment

5.0

May/23/2014

Expensive yes.. But totally worth it for a natural, organic, silicon free product. The scent takes getting used to, but I now look forward to the palo santo scent (same as rahua poo/cond).

It's not a rich treatment, but I use it as a replacement to a traditional silicone treatment (shine /smoothness) without the harmful chemicals and cones. I apply it on damp hair before air …

Toners - Acure Organics - Facial Toner Rose + Red Tea

Jan/08/2014

I really like this lightly scented rose toner. Although there is geared toward oily / combo skin, i have not had any issues with my dry skin. It contains witch hazel which is an astringent anti-oxident, however it also has glycerin, Calendula, Chamomile and Bulgarian Rose (all known for soothing and hydrating).

I use this toner to dampen my skin before applying facial oil (La Bella …

BB Cream - Dr. Jart+ - Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm

5.0

Dec/09/2013

I figured I should write a review of this since I am on my 3rd bottle. I have not tried any other BB creams since I found this one and I tried quite a few (Smashbox, Clinique, Too Faced, Mischa among others)

My lil sister introduced me to the Dr. Jart brand. They say its a Universal shade, but I disagree. Anyone over NC25 may have some issues with tone, however it works for my NC20 - …

Cleansers - Purpose - Gentle Cleansing Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/20/2013

I have bounced around several cleansers but return to this one or clean & clear sensitive (same ingredients) all the time. I buy whichever one is on sale.

Basic no frills light foaming cleanser removes make up without stripping skin. Packaging is fine. I keep the large pump bottle in the shower and decant some into a foaming pump and keep it by the sink, so a little does go a …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Zen Rose

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2013

The MAC SA explained this is a hybrid of a Lipstick and gloss. reminds me of the slim shines that were discontinued a few years back. This does not have the same staying power of a lipstick, but to me it is a fair compromise since it is not only not drying at all, it is somewhat moisturizing without the sticky/tacky feel many glosses have. It is a bit messy to apply and for that reason I cannot …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

I liked the original one and I like the + version as well but for different purposes. It's a good moisturizer, however it is not a replacement for the original.

The original was a basic no frills moisturizer. This version is much richer and deeply moisturizing which took me by surprise. For now, I am using it as a night cream and can see myself using it during the day as the …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Allure for women

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2013

Allure is my 1st grown up scent. I received this as a gift over a decade ago and to this day i still get a lot of compliments when i wear this fragrance. It makes me feel a 1000x better version of myself.

Definetly an flowery oriental. Rich warm vanilla base which is a bit overwhelming at 1st from the citrus notes, but it dries down to a musky, powdery, creamy sensual scent. sex …
