Sunscreen - Hawaiian Tropic - Hawaiian Tropic Baby Faces & Tender Places SPF50 Spray

May/13/2008

This is pretty much the best sunscreen of all time ever. I took it on vacation to Belize for my sister's wedding, and within days the Legend of the Awesome Sunscreen had spread far and wide. People I barely knew would walk by and be all, "Hey, can I use some of this?" As much as it sucks that my beloved sunscreen got used up in a week and a half, I take comfort knowing that I may …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

I liked this well enough, but it stung my face and I had to use nearly a palmful to get my makeup off, so it's not as cheap as it seems. I can see how it might click with others, but as for me, we agreed we weren't compatible although we will think back fondly on our short time together.

Cleansers - Neutrogena - one-step gentle cleanser

Bought this a few days ago based on early skincare board reviews to tide myself over till I receive a drugstore.com order. Sadly, it was way harsh, Tai. After I use it, my face feels chapped and rough. My skin had finally stopped flaking and stinging from my sunscreen (Neutrogena D/T 55), but this started it up again. I've still not found an HG cleanser for the winter, but Neutrogena …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

Good, but not...great. I dunno, man. It might just be my eyelashes, which I suspect are stubbornly resistant to being curled (especially because it did work well on my mom and sister). It might be because I now see that this curler is recommended for almond-shaped eyes and my eyes are rounder than Charlie Brown's head. But the effect is not dramatic at all. It does make a difference...I …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Lash Out [DISCONTINUED]

My favorite mascara. Doesn't really clump, doesn't really flake, but still gets the job done. My only qualm is that the packaging is very grandma, and the lame little maroon ring around the tube flakes off and looks really tacky. Oh, a word to the wise: sometimes they'll sell this at the L'Oreal display for the normal price (~$7), and then somewhere else have a special mascara …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Burt's Bees - Repair Serum with Attar of Rose [DISCONTINUED]

I had the little version of this that came in one of the Burt's Bees kits. I have very deep-set eyes with dark undereye circles and fine lines (which I swear I've had since I was six). <p>

At first all I noticed was that this made my eyes feel really greasy, which is gross and weird any way you look at it. Then I started using less (just a dab), and thought, a-ha! …
