Blush - Everyday Minerals - Launch Party

3.0

May/04/2012

I got the sample size for free with my order.

As a pasty white girl this blush on its own is not for me. I can mix it in with my Waffle Cone to use as blush/bronzer, with about a 2:1 ratio WC to LP. It's nice as eye shadow.

I mixed it in with some moisturizer to give my skin a glow and it is fantastic for that purpose! It looks like I have a nice tan. It will take a …

Blush - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Blush in Apple Blossom

I got a generous sample of this with my last order. From the baggy it didn't look like it'd show up on my skin, even though I am PPP. When I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised! What a natural flush it gives. It's not chalky at all and is really easy to blend. I'm going to add this to my cart in my next order.

Powder - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Mineral Foundation

It gives me good coverage for my acne scars. This doesn't emphasize dry spots as much as other mineral foundations have done for me. Fantastic finish! I don't look overly matte. It's very natural and flawless.

I'd been using Everyday Minerals for the past 6 years but decided to give Alima a try. I'll never go back to EDM!

Lips - Bonne Bell - Barq's Root Beer Lip Smacker

Smells amazing! So authentic to Barq's root beer. Doesn't impart much color, which is perfect for me.

I bought the 8-pack of cola Smackers, solely for the Coca-Cola one. I thought 8 would last me for so long, but I can't help myself from opening a new one every week.

Out of Coca-Cola, Sprite, and Barq's, Barq's is my favorite so far.

Skincare - Body - Johnson & Johnson - Head to Toe baby wash

Jun/03/2011

This is a great, versatile product that I will always have on hand. For me, its' most important function is as a feminine cleanser.

Pros:
-I do not think this is a moisturizing product (as someone mentioned), but it is not stripping.
-Dirt cheap
-Can be used as face/body wash and a brush cleaner. The formula is the same as Purpose.
-Pleasant smell, not …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Cleansing Bar - Acne-Prone Skin Formula

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2011

Dries my skin out and therefore causes more acne. Doesn't make my skin feel clean. Very basic, nothing special.

If you are dealing with acne and want an effective cleanser, try a bar of sulfur soap. Sulfur soap is the one cleanser that my skin agrees with and actually calms down my skin. The Neutrogena bar is cheap and available everywhere but for me it's not worth buying …

Shampoo - Sebamed - Anti-Hairloss Shampoo

May/11/2011

This review is for the Anti-Hair Loss version. It's a clear white gel with a minty scent. $20 CDN for a 200 mL bottle.

Let me start by saying that my skin and scalp are VERY sensitive. I find most shampoos too harsh. Even baby shampoo dries out my scalp and hair.

I used a small amount of this shampoo every day for about a week and I liked it. I liked the way my …

Treatments (Face) - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Skin Bleaching Gel

May/02/2011

I have sensitive, very fair, acne-prone skin that is currently riddled with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

I am trying to be gentle to my skin by using gentle products, as well as products that are as non-irritating as possible. I recently ordered the lactic acid peel and this skin bleaching gel. I've been using the lactic once a week for a month. On the other 6 nights …

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2011

I have the sample size (0.5 oz) and I like this. It has an authentic, pleasant orange scent. It is a thick orange gel that does not lather. For reference, I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. I've had this in my cupboard for ~6 years. I was just about to throw it out because I figured it'd be rancid by now, but it seems fine to me so I'm going to use it up. I avoided using this …Read more
