When I wear Frapin 1270 I can't help but picture Lucille Ball stomping around in a vat of purple grapes. 1270 is definitely a boozy fragrance but it's a soft and sweet booziness like a blackberry cordial (not like you're drinking on the job). As it settles it still throws a mild alcoholic tang, and the grapes mellow into a delicious and somehow sophisticated slightly smokey …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Ombra Aromatheraply Body/Hair wash in Lavender

Dec/12/2007

This is one of my all time favorite body cleansers. It's all about the delicious, wonderful, true, in-your-face Lavender fragrance. I can tell it's true lavender essential oil and not a cheap chemical fragrance, and it's my absolute favorite type of lavender, not the powdery floral lavender or the camphoraceous medicinal type. This lavender is a fresh, high-pitched, effervescent …Read more

This smells like almonds, and has an insanely thick and balmy texture. It does not rinse clean on it's own, I apply this to dry skin before I get in the shower and massage in, to remove I splash with warm water and use a wet washcloth to gently wipe it all off. It comes off very easily with a washcloth or facial chamois (but I feel that it bears repeating: it will not come off without a …Read more

I generally loathe sulfur based masks because they reek and sting my skin. This one is a little bit different from most, and far superior in my opinion. The concentration of sulfur is 5%, which doesn't make my skin sting and feel tight and dry. This dries like a clay mask, but still has some flexibility when dry. The mint and tea tree that is prevalent in True's purifying line is great …Read more

This is my HG toner. I use it after cleansing, applied with a cotton round, or by itself in the morning as a mini-cleanse. It contains tea tree and mint extracts (no, it's not cooling), and it smells like Wrigley's gum. It removes every last trace of makeup, sunscreen, etc. and leaves my skin feeling clean and calm and not tight or dry. I cherish this toner. It comes is a tall squeeze …Read more

Nov/22/2007

This is a satin-finish loose mineral powder foundation. The finish is verging on shimmery, but I find it extremely flattering even on my acne prone sensitive oily skin. I prefer this to the pressed formula, because the coverage is more adjustable and it still looks natural even if you apply a thick layer. This has a very concentrated amount of pigment which means I don't even need to use a …Read more

This is a creamy serum for lightening pigmentation and treating photodamage. The main active ingredient is Idebenone, which is a super potent antioxidant. This is meant to be a serum/treatment product that you can apply under a moisturizer or by itself. Since it contains retinol I only use it at night. Here is an article about it's effectiveness against prescription strength Hydroquinone …Read more

The smell of this body wash is sublime. It's a clean, soapy, warm, sweet, gourmand fragrance. My skin feels silky and very very clean after using this. I don't think it is the most moisturizing body wash out there, but it's not drying by any means. The only thing I DON'T like is the little beads, they don't dissolve and they kind of build up in the creases of my body …Read more

Nov/21/2007

This is the only drugstore cleanser I've ever used that I find worth reviewing. It doesn't remove the heavy duty sunscreen or mineral makeup very well, but it's a nice gentle cleanser and I've repurchased it several times. It works really well for cleaning makeup brushes. The only bad thing I've noticed is the pump mechanism tends to break and then you have to unscrew …Read more

A wonderfully light and absorbable cream formulation, this product is gentle enough for me to use it around my eyes without issue. I find that a prescription retionoid or Diacneal works better on the rest of my face as I am extremely acne prone. Ystheal + Emulsion is my choice for eyes, neck, and decollete but it would be great for all-over use if you are looking for a light textured night cream …Read more
