Polishes - NYC New York Color - In a New York Color Minute - Fashion Safari

I used not to like neutral polish, but this one grew one me.
Great nude color that is the perfect on my fair skin. It's very streaky so the first coat always looks terrible, until I put the second coat and my nails become great.
The price of NYC nail polish is very low, which for me explains why it chips quickly (compare to OPI for example).
Will definitely buy again!

Moisturizers - JASÖN - 98% Aloe Vera Super Gel

Don't put this on your face if you have sensitive skin!!!
My face became completely red in a matter of seconds when I decided to use this as a moisturizer.
Regarding the healing properties of aloe vera, I have had more success with the one by Aubrey organics 100% pure aloe vera. Yes, Aubrey organics is watery and runny, but it does not irritate your face.

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - hemp hemp hooray! - lush lime cleansing cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2011

I used this product for six months. This is one of the few cleansers that do not leave my face dry afterward, which is really good. I am very happy with this product.
However, the bottle goes down very quickly. And the price can be kind of steep considering that you might need a new bottle (25$) every three months. I haven't decided yet if I will repurchase or not.

I have used this moisturizer for 6 months.
The smell is different, but is still very acceptable for me . It is nothing compared to neem oil for example.
Yes, it is a jar and you have to put your finger in every time you use.
In my case, the goal was to find a moisturizer that would help with my dry skin without causing pimples. This moisturizer is really good, and it meets all my …

Cleansers - Garnier - Nutri-Pure Detoxifying Wet Cleansing Towelettes Oil-Free

Feb/26/2011

This is terrible for my skin. After 5 days of using it, it breaks me out badly.
Because it is sill important to give credit when credit is due, I have to say that it is good at taking makeup off. However, every time I use, my skin is left really dry. And the day after, I have 2-3 new whiteheads in my face.
I would certainly not repurchase, and will probably throw the 20 wipes I still …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Tickle My France-y

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/28/2010

I am hesitating to review badly this product. As always, OPI succeeded to make a good nail polish, with a very creamy consistency, that does not streak. However, the color is very neutral, beige-ish, which does nothing for me. It does look okay on me though, I am just used to darker and more dramatic shades. I am still going to use this nail polish for formal occasions, but I probably won't …Read more

Polishes - OPI - You Don't Know Jacques!

You don't know Jaques is fantastic. It is a brown that will have grey or purple accents on different lighting. It is looking great on my fair skin. It is definitely more of a fall and winter color though. This is a must!

The color looks amazing with my very fair skin. It is magenta with some purple hints. Two coats are necessary for the finish to be opaque. I was able to find it only for around 6$, which is a good deal for nail polish creamy that does not streak... Will definitely repurchase!

Fragrances - Giorgio Armani - Sensi [DISCONTINUED]

This has been my fragrance since 2007 and I always receive compliments about it. It's definitely a women's scent, with jasmine, vanilla, and some type of wood. It lasts on the skin, which is a must for a perfume of that cost. I love this perfume and will buy again for sure. I would like for it to be cheaper, but I guess it's a normal price for this quality...

Jul/20/2010

I've tried this product for almost 30 days now without great results. My teeth are already somehow white and I whiten them every year. I am not a smoker or a coffee drinker, and those seemed to be the ones who obtained great results on the paula's choice website. I was really hopeful with this product because it's cheaper than other systems (15$) and because my teeth are always …Read more
