I just finished my first bottle that I purchased in March. I really like it so I repurchased a few more bottles whenever I found extra bucks offers from CVS. I have oily skin but with dry patches from using prescription tretinoin 0.05% /Retin-A for my mild-hormonal acnes that I got from ovaries removal and tamoxifen/estrogen blocker medication. I also use on my hair, mix with Garnier Sleek & …Read more

I recently had double mastectomy and got itching skin with rashes after surgery. Though this lotion did not relief my rashes (which steroids took care of), this lotion healed left over dry patches. I have sensitive skin and used to have Lubriderm lotion but this Suave is a lot less cheaper and equally good. I also like the scent, not too strong but similar to Bath & Body Works lotions I used …Read more

I also got a pack from Cosmo and just tried it. Very sticky and not sure what the texture supposed to be. I normally like L'Oreal skin care products though I don't believe in the hypes. Anyway, it's not worth to buy the 1oz bottle for $25 bucks even with $2 accompanied coupon. I also rubbed left over to my neck and it was like peeling. My face is still sticky since I put in on over …Read more

As for toner, this is very strong for my nose and I have stomach ulcer so I can't drink either. Though I held my breath while applying this on my face with a cotton ball, I can't bear the small of ACV when I sweat. So far, I can only use as facial mask with Bentonite Clay.

For my main purpose of rinsing hair with ACV, I have both Bragg and Walmart's own brand …

I have both Bragg and Walmart's own brand "Great Value" ACV and I don't see much difference for rinsing my hair. I often spend time in the pool and can't spend $ for swim shampoo. I saw in some swim forums that rinse off with ACV after shampoo and conditioner or mix baking soda in the shampoo. So I chose ACV rinse method. I have healthy hair except that quite dry and …Read more

I have natural hair (i.e. without coloring or chemical processing) past over the shoulders and getting dry and rough after spending often in the pool in this summer. I read in one of the swim forums about weekly treatment with mayo but when I came back from the pool, I had to shampoo my hair in the shower. I don't want another time to spend mayo treatment. I recently had the point that my …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Ideal Moisture 48hr SPF25 Sensitive Skin

I have oily skin and this day lotion doesn't make any oilier. Non-greasy, oil-free, and it has SPF25 for both UVA and UVB and claims 48 hours moisture. I wash my face at least twice a day so I can't prove that 48 hrs claim. No sun burn in the winter outings but obvious reason, this is not sufficient for summer beach trip.

I paid $7 for 4oz bottle from CVS with regular price …

Since this Salux towel is on the MUA’s “MUA Top Picks” page a couple of years ago, I tracked it down in the local Asian stores in DC metro area but could not find one. So I ordered one from Amazon.com and received fake Chinese towel. I complained to Amazon and they refunded the full $ and let me keep that Chinese towel. Some reasons, I did not throw away it and took it when I traveled to …Read more

I heard about Epsom salt from a colleague over 10 years ago. She had broken leg and walking with crutches and I mentioned her that I had blisters from new shoes. She told me to soak my feet with Epsom salt and that was what she did at nights to beat smells and pain of her broken leg. So on the way back home on that day, I bought a carton from CVS and also bought a fancy foot spa/bath/massage from …Read more
