Skincare - Face - Pro Activ - 3-Step System

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2006

Pro Activ did improve my acne but left my skin dry and dull. The cleanser is okay, I love the glycolic toner, and the repairing lotion is waaay to strong. This is a product best left to teenagers and extremely oily skin. You must use a moisturizer with this system. A lot of people seem to think that the repairing lotion is a moisturizer and end up with serious problems. I wouldn't …Read more

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Pureness Refreshing Cleansing Sheets

5.0

Apr/04/2006

These are the only cleansing wipes on the market that I can stand. They are great in a pinch when I need a fast but thourough cleanse. I feel truly clean with these wipes. There's no film or residue left behind as with other brands and they even remove my eye makeup without irritation. I'm not an oily skin type. Still, they leave me feeling refreshed and not at all tight or stripped. I …Read more

Conditioner - Terax - Crema

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2006

I read an article where Chris McMillan recommended Kerastase shampoos and Terax conditioners. I've been using this combo for about 6 months and my hair is amazing. I have pretty fine, totally straight hair and was worried that Terax would weigh it down. I find it to be perfectly balanced. It's hydrating enough for my color treated hair, but not heavy at all. I use it daily and once a …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Bliss - Lemon & Sage Soapy Sap

Apr/04/2006

I can't imagine anyone not loving the lemon/sage scent. Soapy Sap lathers nicely and leaves my skin feeling soft, while providing serious aromatherapy in the shower. The only downside is the packaging. I find it a bit bulky and awkward for the shower.

Lip Gloss - Trish McEvoy - Lipgloss in Cherry Red

I'm not a big fan of Trish products, but I especially don't like her lip products. The glosses look gorgeous in the tube, but they're blah on the lips. They're runny and just not very exciting. For the price, I expect a formula to perform better than this. Also, they smell and taste horrible. For gloss, I recommend Nars, Laura Mercier, Dior, and Chanel.

Fragrances - CREED - Green Irish Tweed

Apr/04/2006

This is absolutely the sexiest fragrance a man can wear. I bought it for my fiancee and, even though he's not a fragrance guy, he likes it and wears it for me. In college, there was a guy in my circle of friends who was classy and witty, but not at all physically attractive. He would wear this scent to parties and would inevitably end up with a gathering of women, leaning in to enjoy the …Read more

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Abricot

This scent is absolutely Yummy. I love the way the sweetness is balanced with the crisp apricot. It's rich, but not obnoxious or overpowering. Also, all of the CSP fragrances are long wearing and maintain the integrity of the scent throughout the day. I would highly recommend to any vanilla lover.

Eye Shadow - Stila - Eyeshadow

Stila makes some of the best shadows on the market. Buildable pigment allows you to create natural or dramatic looks. They are easy to apply, long wearing, and come in a beautiful selection of colors. The deeper shades can be used wet or dry (depending on what brush you choose) as liner. Now, if only they'd give up on that cheap cardboard packaging.

Okay, first I have to admit that I'm a true product snob and this is the first thing I've bought from a drug store in almost a decade. I read several favorable reviews in magazines and got curious. I think this is an good product for the price. Still, nothing will freshen your color better than Art Tec shampoos. I also think that Aveda color shampoos/conditioners are better.
