So I guess there was a SPF 40 version of this that was all that and then some a few years ago but this version is all I know and love. It's a bit pricey but it lasts me a LONG time and I've only had to buy it twice in one year. TWICE. And I use it literally everyday and sometimes reapply in the evening. And it really works too. Last summer as I was enjoying the So Cal beaches I realized …Read more

This product is abysmal. Seriously. "Semi-matte," is what the kids these days are calling it. I'm calling shenanigans. It said matte, I want matte! My fault for not checking MUA (will I ever learn? The better question, will I ever get a decent phone to let me check MUA whenever I want?!)

It also takes FURREVER to dry. Really. I'm sure there are better matte …

This is one of those "I know I shouldn't be using this because all the ingredients are highly toxic and probably carcinogenic buuut..... DAMN don't my nails look good?!"

Just try to use it in an spot with ventilation. And definitely invest in the thinner. If not, you may lose half the bottle and every precious shiny toxic drop counts.

This caught my eye because of the hilarious name. It caught my attention because of the natural ingredients (avocado, jojoba, lavender and sweet orange oils in beeswax with vitamin e). It became my HG lip moisturizer because of the scent and IT WORKS.

First off, yes, it smells heavily of lavender oil. Some may not like that. For the person like me who loves black lavender tea, is …

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this sooner, I'm on my like...4th bottle. This is my daily facial cream. If I'm not careful, I can be Miss Greasy Face, but by some miraculous discovery, this "intense hydration" is gentle enough to NOT make my face feel or look greasy, even in the summer. In fact, I remember when I started using this, but I couldn't believe …Read more

Love, love LOVE this scrub. It is my all time favorite. I'm on my 3rd tube already. This is the ONLY scrub I've used that DOESN'T leave my skin feeling raw, red, or dry. I have the added oils in the mix to thank for that. Oils that DON'T CLOG or irritate my skin. Get ready for a whole new experience if you're trying this scrub for the first time. I still remember the …Read more

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! It does NOTHING... NOTHING!! I used to use this product, but then gave up after too many stress induced fever blisters (aka cold sores) caused me much more stress and embarrassment. I searched and searched online, and finally found a remedy that works.

1- Get a cotton ball
2- Get your acetone based nail polish remover
3- Dab cotton ball with some …

I'm on my third bottle. Ladies, if you're tired of smudging eyeliner, THIS IS FOR YOU!! Super long lasting; lasts and entire day and then some. If I don't get it all off with my cleanser in the evening, I just leave it there- now I have an outline for the next day LMAO. Super non irritating; no redness, bumps, or other unsightlies, even when I leave it on overnight (which I have …Read more

Good cleanser; it gets my makeup off (as evidenced by the lack of it on my cotton pad after toning (Boots Botanics Complexion Refining)), but after using it, my face doesn't FEEL clean. It's probably the moisturizing properties that stay on after cleansing, but it really feels odd (especially since I've been using acne products that strip your skin of all moisture after cleansing …Read more

Love this cream eyeliner! I was eyeing it for months hoping the price would drop or I could snag it on sale- no such luck. I finally just took the plunge and bought it! I think it was about $12 where I bought it, can't remember where though, it's been a few months. That said, I went from being a complete mascara nutcase to only using this eyeliner. It's fantastic. I have the black …Read more
