Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST C15 Super Booster

5.0

HG product. I noticed results after the first use. I've used it continuously for two months and my skin is much more clear - the redness and acne scars are lighter.

It says that if this serum is exposed for a while it looses its potency after two months. Because it's pretty expensive buy a sample vile. If you really like it, buy the full size, but keep the full size …

Moisturizers - Avene - Antirougeurs Fort Concentrate Face Moisturizer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2014

This is another great skin care product recommended by Lisa Eldridge that she keeps in her kit (it's from her video "Beauty Nightmares!"). After I watched it, I immediately went to
Shoppers to buy some of the products mentioned.
The Antirougeurs products have now turned out to be one of my HG skincare product lines.
My skin type: dry from Retin-A, oily …

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - CICAPLAST BAUME B5 - Multi-Purpose/Soothing Repairing Balm

Jan/19/2014

Another great product that I've found thanks to Lisa Eldridge! I've been through several tubes of the regular cicaplast, but when I saw this at Shoppers a few months ago (it was $5.00 cheaper than the regular cicaplast) I picked it up. This is an AMAZING winter moisturizer! This product is the only reason that I've been able to get through the Canadian winter AND use Retin-A …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2013

This one didn't work for me, and there was really nothing special about this cleanser to spend $30 on again. My skin is combo/dry and I have mild breakouts. I really like the Toleriane ultra moisturizer, and I thought I would try this. There's nothing about this cleanser that is moisturizing. Yes, the texture is creamy, but I actually found it made my skin a bit dry. It …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Painted Purple

4.0

May/12/2013

I know this eyeshadow is getting some bad reviews. I agree - as an eyeshadow it's not the greatest. It's definitely not as pigmented as the other tattoo colors (Bad to the Bronze is amazing!). By itself, it's not a great eyeshadow.

However, I think this makes an amazing eyeshadow base for purple eyeshadow. The colour is an exact dupe to NYX's jumbo eye pencil in …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Matte - Ground Brown

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2013

I'm totally surprised that there are no reviews on this shadow! Ground Brown is MAC PRO colour, so it is a bit hard to get a hold of. This colour is honestly one of the BEST MAC shadows ever!

All MAC brown shadows in the permanent line are either red (warm) based or grey (cool) based. This shadow is truly dark BROWN! It is neither too warm or cool and would look good on …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Daydreaming

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2013

Daydreaming eyeshadow is from the Hayley Williams collection (online only). I was hesitant to buy it online without swatching it, but I took my chances because it's a veluxe pearl finish, which is my favourite Mac shadow finish. Mac describes it as coral, but it really isn't coral at all. In the pan, it looks identical to Sushi Flower, which in my opinion is dry and badly pigmented. …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Polysporin Cold Sore Healing Patch

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2011

This is one of the worst products that I have ever encountered! I'm lucky that I only get a cold sore every 2-3 years now. This time I ran out of my medication, so I decided to try this because I had seen the ad for this and it seemed intriguing. The box cost me $17CND after a $5 off coupon and it came with 15 patches.


Anyone who has had a cold sore, knows how hard they …

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - KQC X-Heat Flat Iron

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2011

This flat iron seems to have flooded the youtube community, so I'm surprised that there aren't any reviews for this yet. My hair is shoulder length, straight and very thin. I had 7 year old FHI flat iron which finally died, so I spent a couple of months researching a new one to buy. I don't have frizzy hair, and I only used my FHI for taming fly always and adding texture. I …Read more
