Cleansers - The Body Shop - SEAWEED Deep Cleansing Facial Wash

Great for keeping my skin balanced. Cleans without drying or leaving that tight feeling (yuck), and does not irritate my skin. It does not lather much, but it doesn't need to. In fact, i am glad that it doesn't- lather=chemicals. I apply a small amount and then work it in with a complexion brush. Good stuff!

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion

I recently turned to this product during an unexpected and unusually severe breakout on my forehead and chin. I applied it that night and noticed significant results by morning, the flares were smaller and much less red. It has now been a week and my skin is cleared. This product did not irritate my sensitive skin, and does a great job of controlling oil. It doesn't offer much in the way of …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Cream

Feb/11/2013

I have been using this for a month (though not every day) and I still can't tell if I like it or not...
It seems like some days when I use it, my hair feels soft and tamed but then other days it feels sticky and gives my hair a terrible feel. I can definitely say that it hasn't done anything to improve the condition of my hair, and isn't that the point of a leave-in cream …

Masks - Boots - Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask

Feb/11/2013

I've been using this about twice per week for three weeks or so and I'm enjoying this product. I do feel that the mask is clarifying and conditioning my skin. After the mask has dried, I can definitely see where oil has been pulled up from my pores and boy, is that ever satisfying. The pores on my nose are cleaner than they have ever been as an adult, though I don't believe they …Read more

Scrubs - Alba Botanica - Sea Enzyme Facial Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2013

I've been using this about twice a week for 3 weeks now, and I'm happy. Here's why:
The scrubby particles are finely milled, and I actually feel like I'm being scrubbed, rather than just scratched (like I do with apricot scrub...yuck). The enzymes really help to slough off the dead skin and leave the rest glowy. I like to scrub this in thoroughly for about a minute or …

Feb/11/2013

I have been using this on my combination skin as my night-cleanser for about three weeks now, and I am very happy. The first couple times I used this, my sensitive skin burned a bit (and definitely close your eyes suuuuuper tight when you use this, OUCH) and I briefly developed some dry patches so I wasn't sure that I'd end up liking it. However, after the first couple times the …Read more

Feb/11/2013

I purchased a sample packet size of this conditioner for my weekly deep conditioning treatment (I've been using Aveda Dry Therapy, but wanted to switch it up this week), and didn't really know what to expect having never used this brand before.
First off, I LOVE THE SMELL. It smells exactly like MorroccanOil... like orange blossoms and jasmine. I can't stop smelling my hair …

Highlighters - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal

Jan/30/2013

ELF has done it again! This stuff is great, and I would pay a lot more than $1 for it. Good thing I don't have to.
I know this is a highlighter, but I use it primarily as a shimmery blush. This stuff is definitely a cool pink base, and since I'm so pale, the pink shows through really well. I can't use it to highlight everything, because then everything is pink. But, if you are …

Primer/ Corrector - Boots - No7 Shine Free Make-Up Base

3.0

Jan/30/2013

In my opinion, this is a "meh" primer. The best thing that it has going for it is that it really REALLY stays matte. All day. And since I'm being honest here, I fell asleep before taking my makeup off last night and it was STILL matte when I woke up. It also makes my foundation last just as long. That's all good!
What I do not like about it is the texture. It doesn't …

Shampoo - Neutrogena - Anti-Residue Gentle Clarifying Shampoo

I have been coming back to this shampoo over and over for years. It really is the best clarifying shampoo that I have tried. The smell is horrendous- it reeks of cheap motel shampoo. But it's worth it. I use it every week or two and my hair is always refreshed, soft, and free of gunk. I use it before my deep conditioning treatment, and it really intensifies the results.
