Hair Color - John Frieda - Precision Foam Color

Jun/06/2012

I purchased the Deep-Brown-Black color last night at London Drugs for $12.95. I'm always looking for an easier way to apply hair color and the foam application caught my eye. It was easy to apply and the color came out as expected, dark brown/black. The promised 100% grey coverage is totally not true. I had about half an inch of salt and pepper roots going into this dye job and my roots …Read more

Love this conditioner!! When I first tried it out I was surprised by thin runny consistancy but as soon as I applied it to my hair... like silk baby! It takes a quarter size amount of this conditioner to cover my shoulder length, wavy thick hair. Before I would use a handful (and I do mean a handful) of other brands such as Bedhead, Redken, Gosh, in order to get the same results. This …Read more

Hi all! Just a quick tip. Buy some Lidocain, 0.05%, apply a light coat to the area that you are going to treat, leave on between 10-15mins and then shave away. Excellent for around the bikini and armpit area. You need an Rx for the Lidocain, but a tube should last for months.

I love this dryer!!! It takes a fraction of time to dry my hair, the setting can be customized to hair density (fine to thick) and with 1600 watts of power you have yourself a powerful styling tool. I found this dryer on sale for $139.00. I don't think I would have paid over $200 for it, but I feel I totally got my monies worth. My normally curly/wavy hair looked sleek and shiny …Read more

I'm not going to add anything new to what has already been written about this blush. I love the color, it really warms up my pale complexion without looking OTT. I didn't realize how pigmented the product was and went full guns when I first got it, WOWSA, not such a good look,lol! I use a fan brush for just a washof color and a fuller brush when I want more. Ironically, the most …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Original

May/10/2011

This was suggested to me by a client who has amazing lashes. I thought the fromula was really wet/runny and the brush was covered in product, so much so, that I used a tissue to wipe off the residual, twice, before I applied. Left my lashes clumpy, not a lot of volume, some fullness. This formula needs a good scrub to get off and the next morning I still had a tiny bit of it left under my …Read more

May/04/2011

This cream came as a "twice the size duo deal" with a bottle of the Lemon and Sage shower gel. I picked it up at Winners for $19.99. Really like the cream, very good moisturizer, smells light and fresh, scent doesn't linger to long though but it doesn't make me feel greasy. The body wash is alright, barely there scent, need a lot to make a good lather, all in all it's …Read more

Apr/15/2011

I like this Mascara. It goes on with out clumps, comes out of the tube nice and smooth and gives my lashes rich black color with good separation. The Illumination part was the reason for me purchasing this product in the first place, and it's a lot of fun. Not to much glitter, just enough that it reflects off my lashes in the light or sunshine. I apply the glitter right after the color …Read more
