Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Micellar Cleansing Water

There are some really good things about this micellar water. First, it is soft on the skin and makes your skin feel clean and fresh. It has a slight cooling effect that it leaves behind. The bottle is huge, so you get lots of product. This 12 ounce bottle is more than double the four ounces many micellar waters offer. I use micellar water as a skin refresher, for a light cleanse in the morning …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - StriVectin - LINE blurFECTOR Instant Wrinkle Blurring Primer

4.0

This is a pretty good primer. It is very much a blurring primer, with a silicone finish. It smooths onto the skin easily, and it does leave a perfecting finish. The primer leaves behind a slight, cooling mint scent, which I really like, though it does smell a bit weird when it first comes out of the tube. When I first squeezed it out I was a bit worried about the scent, but thankfully once you …Read more

Fragrances - Calvin Klein - Eternity Air for Women Eau de Parfum

This Eternity flanker actually starts smelling quite different from the original. It starts with a light, airy, slightly watery scent. It's ozonic, fresh, and clean. After approximately half an hour of wear, it begins to shift, and you start to smell the original Eternity. Within an hour of wear, I was getting straight Eternity, with no discernible difference from the original- the warm …Read more

This is by all accounts a very pretty color. It's a medium-salmon creme which dries to a high-shine finish, especially with a good topcoat. It looks professional and pulled-together, or fun and summery, depending on your look. It really is quite versatile. I have no problems wearing it to work, and it would look nice for more formal occasions too. The problems come with the fact that you get …Read more

Cleansers - ELEMIS - Superfood Facial Wash

5.0

This is a lovely cleansing wash, and I really enjoy using it. It has a delightful herbal smell. On the skin it leaves a cooling, slightly minty feeling. For usage, you smooth the cleanser onto dry skin, then add water to make a lather. This leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed, and soft. I use this as the second half of a double cleanse. I would not recommend this on the eyes, because of the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Erno Laszlo - Marble Radiance Emulsion, White

2.0

I feel about this serum the same way I feel about many serums. This is a nice product, in that it feels good on the skin, but I'm not convinced that it is doing much. I have yet to use a serum from which I feel like I see noticeable difference. I was hoping that this might help with fading some red spots from former blemishes, but I've not seen any results. While this certainly …Read more

For the record, I do not have a sensitive scalp. That said, I have found this to be a good, moisturizing conditioner, that I think many people will like, even if they don't require products for sensitive scalp. I have come across some other sensitive scalp products in my travels through various shampoos and conditioners, and have found most of what I have tried to be sub-par. This …Read more

Want a nice, light mist of fancy water to spray on your face? That's what this is. You get an atomizer of very fancy volcano water (15 minerals!) that comes out of the sprayer in a delightful, light mist. I'm not going to lie; it's fun to spray on your face. It feels good. Beyond that, I'm not really sure what this does. I am definitely someone who can be convinced by a …Read more

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Twisted Peppermint Fine Fragrance Mist

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2017

This is a really nice winter scent. For some background, I do not like vanilla, not at all. I hate vanilla scents. I hate bakery scents. I despise Vanilla Bean Noel. Somehow, though, the vanilla in this scent is palatable and nice to me. The predominant note in this scent is mint, with sugary vanilla in the background. The end product is minty and refreshing while also being a bit sweet. …Read more

Fragrances - Moschino - Fresh Couture

Jan/01/2017

This smells exactly, and I do mean exactly, like I expected of a fragrance that comes out of a windex bottle. I don't mean that as a criticism. I love fresh scents. When I thought about what I was expecting before I first sprayed this, what came out was pretty much exactly what I was imagining. The reason for this, I suspect, is because it's a very close dupe of a Bath and Body …Read more
