Sunscreen - Aveeno - Baby Sensitive Skin SPF 50

Two lippies because it works and has no scent, but it is thick, sticky, hard to spread, and has the texture of Elmer's Glue. If you reapply this on a beach, it is like sand blasting your skin because every grain of salt and sand you came in contact with is stuck to your skin. Hard to remove at the end of the day, also. I soaked in the tub, scrubbed with a washcloth in the shower, and still …Read more

Hair Removal - Softsheen Carson - Magic Razorless Cream Shave

Aug/07/2018

I used the type in the tube with the maroon stripe (extra strength). Before using this I did a patch test, and was fine. This removed nearly all of my hair in my bikini area in 7 minutes. You must apply it generously, however. Easier than shaving; I put it on, did my pre shower ablutions for 7 minutes, jumped in the shower and washed it off. I did use Balmex afterwards to ward off any …Read more

Mascara - Sisley-Paris - So Intense Fortifying Volumizing Mascara

Jun/26/2018

So disappointed in this one. I am normally a low-end makeup user, but decided to splurge, since mascara and bb cream are really the only 2 products I use daily. Given the previous reviews, I was expecting some seriously lush looking lashes. Instead, meh. The first day, I applied it the way I normally do my mascara: loading the roots (for a tighlined look) and brushing up, one coat. That gave …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies in Black Drama

Got this at Rite Aid, unable to resist the low price point. Don't love the packaging, but since it lives in my makeup bag and only I see it, no big deal. Won't buy it again, only because there are other cheap mascaras that are better.

Pros, besides price: doesn't irritate my eyes, doesn't clump (I only use 1 coat, YMMV), okay dark color, okay volume, okay length …

Mascara - ULTA - Amped Lashes

Initially got this as a gift with purchase, but have bought it again. It is a drier formula, which I like. It goes on very dark, doesn't clump, doesn't smudge ( unless it is very humid), lasts all day, with minor flaking, and doesn't irritate my eyes. Comes off with cleanser and a microfiber cloth. Worth a shot when it goes on sale.

ETA: I did not get the waterproof …

Got this for tightlining, but it did not stay on my upper waterline. It transferred immediately to my lower waterline AND smudged under my eyes for good measure. In fact, my non-waterproof eyeliner (a 20+ year old Avon pencil) does a better job of staying put. On the plus side, it did not irritate my eyes, and works adequately for lining my upper lids. Won't bother returning it to RiteAid …Read more

May/22/2016

I really like CeraVe's serum, and use it at night, several times a week, so I was looking forward to trying this moisturizer. Pros: comes in a generous 3 oz. size, and has a pump. No scent to speak of. When I wash this off my face at night, my skin looks good. Cons: This moisturizer is very thick, and does irritate my eyes a little bit, so I have to really steer clear of that area. It does …Read more

Foundations - Physicians Formula - Youthful Wear Spotless CC Cream

Apr/16/2016

Got this as a BOGO last year, and was kind of underwhelmed. I had been using the Garnier BB cream for normal to oily skin, and while I liked it, especially the matte finish, I found it liquidy and messy to apply. PF was a big change texture-wise -- very thick. I could not blend it with my fingers and have it look good. I got a Rite Aid knockoff of a Beautyblender, dampened it, and used it to …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2015

It looked good for the first hour or so while you're wearing it, but most days, it managed to smudge terribly! And this was during the chilly New England winter -- no humidity anywhere. Since I use the same products day in/day out, there was no figuring out why there was smudging and why there wasn't. It didn't hurt my super sensitive eyes, unlike the regular Full and Soft (which …Read more
