Hate the unhygienic packaging, love the product. I use it as night lip mask, and pre-makeup balm. I sometimes alternate between this and the Bite Beauty agave lip mask, but prefer this because its unscented, unflavoured and less thick. It's not flashy but it works.

I realized I needed to rub it a bit to make it pliable and then it went on to work wonders on my lips. I have dry …

Jun/04/2017

I was struggling to help my lips which went through a terrible bout of dryness in the winter that nothing helped -- cracked, bleeding -- the works. Exfoliating just seemed to make things worse. Then I saw the reviews for Lansinoh. Ahhhhh sweet sweet relief! I used it as a night treatment and started carrying around a tube for the day too (turns out my office was also really dry which was part of …Read more

This product is kind of a holy Grail for me. I have a couple of complaints but overall the product really works.

PROS: This defines my curls lightly and without crunchiness. It's also not greasy, and while it doesn't have hold, I personally don't like hold, and prefer defined curls with lots of movement. I've repurchased for years and years, and it's never …

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Extase Flash Plumping Mascara

Feb/19/2014

So, I loved Diorshow and Iconic and usually paired them to get volume and length, and then metal eyelash combed between coats.

Extase replaces all of these steps! I love it! No need for an eyelash comb even. This is literally the first mascara I've ever used that does that. It's non-clumpy, volumizing, lengthening, blackening, and non-drying or spidery …

I struggle constantly to find the right foundation -- I'm two different shades on my face, I prefer really natural coverage, want application to be easy, and hate powdery chalky finishes. I usually use MAC, but the quest for foundation as taken me everywhere. This works for me. Really works. I use V8 (typically MAC NC44) and for the lighter shade on my face (most of it in the winter), this …Read more

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

Jun/23/2012

Finally! found my own holy grail. This make-up remover is gentle, doesn't sting, doesn't make my eyes water, is non-greasy (so doesn't leave a weird blurry film in my eyes), and is efficient and completely removes every trace of makeup. I do seem to use an extraordinary amount of product to complete the removal process, but that's my only complaint. I suppose to the …Read more

I *love* this stuff. With darker skin, physical sunscreens (which I need because of sensitivity to chemical sunscreen) always leave a whitish ashy finish. This does not. AT ALL! I cannot tell you how happy I am with the product. I've used it for two summers now and I keep re-buying. It's definitely a bit greasy but I also have acne-prone skin and this does not break me out. Truth be …Read more

Stinging, drying, and just generally horrible waste of money.

I was surprised, as I'm generally a fan of MAC products. This really was a disaster. I can't believe how irritating it is to my eyes.

I mix this light gel with Graham Webb's Making Waves curl definer, and it gives me a great defined curl. I like the consistency of it, and while it doesn't do enough definition on its own, mixed with Making Waves (which can sometimes be a little hard/crunchy on its own), it's perfect.

Mon Cherry is my holy grail lipbalm. And of course, it's discontinued. ARRRRRGH!!!

I have extremely sun-sensitive lips, I burn at the slightest hint of UV rays, and while the TLC sticks aren't perfect, they are the closest I've ever come to perfection in a sunscreen lipbalm.

Mon Cherry is the perfect MLBB for my NC44 skin. It's basically sheer with a …
