Feb/23/2006

I was looking for this kind of service for ages until I heard about Three Custom. I sent them an old, almost empty tube of my beloved Margaret Astor lipstick and had to wait for about a month to see the result of their custom blending. Normally it takes about three weeks, but since I live in Europe shipping took quite a while as well.
The handmade lipsticks come in a sleek grey metal tube …

Great shampoo without harsh ingrediences (no SLS, no parabenes, no silicones!)
that makes my hair feel soft and strong. Sometimes I don't even need a conditionder to detangle my hair afterwards. Keeps hair and scalp healthy and moisturized and doesn't weigh hair down.
Nice smell and a good lather, esp. when you keep in mind there's no SLS in it.
Logona make great …

Now I read the INCIS of this oil, it becomes clear to me why I couldn't really get along with it. The oil has a peanut oil basis, which clogged my pores even more than they already are.
Apart from that, I very much liked the idea of fighting too much oil production with applying oil. It did work for me, but I didn't have a very shiny face in the first place, so that was not the …

Great salf tanner, absolutely non-greasy and the nicest golden colour! It doesn't smell like most tanners do (actually, I can't remember the smell at all which is a good sign) and didn't break me out. I only have a sample size, so I cannot say anything on long term usage, but it seemed like the best tanner for the face I have been using so far. I only wish it was cheaper! I'm …Read more

Sep/02/2005

I went and bought this because of the great reviews here but was rather dissapointed after trying it. I think it's a decent mascara, but the volume and length it gives to my lashes is nothing to write home about. The brush doesn't seem to be able to get between the lashes, it merely brushes over them, so they don't feel properly coated. It does seperate them very well but I was …Read more

I bought this in Denmark since I can't get it here in Germany, and desperately wanted to like it. I read many great reviews and was eager to try it.
First I thought I must have gotten some sand inside the bottle or something like that, there were small beads or grains in the lotion, about ten per pump. It felt like an exfoliating lotion gone wrong! I looked at the beads closely and …

Ok, now I know what you girls mean when you say some powder makes you look orange. This one makes me look like my nose is a carrot! :) Maybe my skin is too oily there, but I never have this effect with my Sisheido powder foundation. I was tempted by the price (€ 9)but I'm not too impressed with the results. Doesn't cover well, goes on rather cacey and isn't light enough for my …Read more

This is just wonderful! It's a hand and body cream in a bar with lots of shea butter and cocoa butter that melts on your warm skin and sinks in better than any hand cream I ever tried before! It has a lovely floral scent (rose, jasmine and sandalwood) that lasts for a long time and is just adorable.
You got to be careful not to keep it in your hands fot too long because it gets softer …

I loved the old loose powder by TBS, but since that was discontinued I gve this a go. How I hated this at first! I want a powder to mattify my face and to fix my concealer, but this made my face shine like I just bathed in oil! Don't know why they don't say that this is a shimmery powder on the packaging. And the packaging itself is horrible! A big plastic can with holes on top and a …Read more

THis is a lotion which is supposed to do it all: it has several vitamins in it, has SPF, Alpha- and Polyhydroxy Acids to reduce lines and wrinkles and at the same time clear the skin, it is light enough for my oily skin and did not irritate or break me out.
I've been using this for about three weeks now and my skin feels softer and looks healthier than before. As to the other effects …
