This stuff is a disaster. The ingredients are great and in theory it is a great concept. However, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The main problem, and it is a big one, is that this is not soft enough to run across your under-eye area without completely dragging and pulling on the skin. I feel like I am badly damaging the skin under my eyes when I use this. I honestly feel like it …Read more

Shampoo - Pacifica - Salty Waves Texturizing Shampoo

I've been a Pacifica fan for a long time, but this just does not work for me. It is terribly drying to my fine, straight, color treated hair. After using it regularly I think I can truthfully say that it damaged my hair.

In addition to its drying effects, this did not really provide any texturizing for me. It dried my hair a lot and therefore tangled it but that was about it. If …

I love to try new products and am always hunting for something new and amazing, so it's quite unusual for me to repurchase products. I have repurchased this once already and will do so again very soon as I'm almost done my current bottle. That's an indication of how much I like this.

This is a really nice serum. It has a watery gel-cream quality and goes onto skin …

I received this as a gift. I don't buy Estee Lauder products any longer as I have switched to cruelty-free brands only.

I am surprised by the rave reviews. This lipstick is terrible on me, both shade and formula. It goes on nicely but immediately after applying it starts sucking the moisture out of my lips. It might literally be the most drying lipstick I've ever had. …

Oh my, just no. This is SO frosty on me; it looks ridiculous. I don't get the reviews that say this has "a bit" of frost? It's nothing but shimmer. Very cool-toned, silvery shimmer. The texture is fine and the colour is okay if you like blue-based pinks, but the frostiness puts this over the top for me. I really don't know who this would flatter.

Got this as a …

I'm so sad that this seems to have been discontinued by Pacifica. It's sort of a creamy gel (like a gel that isn't entirely translucent) and leaves skin soft and lightly moisturized. It doesn't cause me any irritation, including on dry winter skin. It lathers a ton and washes away easily. The smell is great - a light floral that I find quite unusual (I'm bad at …Read more

I am very picky when it comes to mascara. This had positive reviews and I like Pacifica as a brand, so I decided to give it a shot. The formula is relatively dry, which I like, and it created volume on my long, thin lashes. I can get away without using a lash comb/brush with this, which is great for harried mornings or travelling. I had no major clumping with this, which is great. In short …Read more

Cleansers - Pixi - Rose Cream Cleanser

I love this cleanser. It’s a fairly thick cream that spreads easily onto the face without tugging. Yet despite being quite thick it rinses clean very easily. The best thing is that it doesn’t irritate or dry my skin at all even in harsh Canadian winter weather. It claims to be a “comfort cleanser” and it really does that. My skin just feels clean and awake and moist when I use this. It is a …Read more

I'm saying yes to repurchase, but I'm not sure I would. Like the other reviewer, I haven't noticed any changes in my skin, good or bad, since I started using this. The one thing I do find it useful for is an extra shot of non-greasy moisture after washing my face and before applying moisturizer/sunscreen. It does seem to help keep my skin moist in the harsh winter.

I was seduced by all the reviews and hype. I really regret spending so much on this. There is honestly nothing special about this. It’s an eye gel. It doesn’t moisturize that well, it goes on a bit sticky and it makes concealer go on quite patchy. I’ve been using this pretty regularly for over a year and if anything, my eyes look worse - I’m blaming aging, not this product, but the product …Read more
