Shampoo - Alberto VO5 - Extra Body Voluminizing Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/07/2014

I've been using this extra body shampoo for more than 10 years and I loved how it adds volume to my hair while leaving my hair clean and soft to touch. Each strand of my hair glowed with my natural highlights. But now I can't say that anymore. The formulation has changed. Now it makes my hair heavy, flat on the crown of my head, stiff, and matted together. It makes me feel like I …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Clean Matte Oil-Control Liquid Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2012

I have combination skin, but more on the oily side. Somewhat thick, feels like a mask if you over apply it. It doesn't hide large pores well. If you have blemishes you'll need a thick layer to hide well. I agree with other reviewers that it makes my face shiny after a couple of hours. Its lasting power is mediocre. It does come off on blotting paper. Having tried Revlon's …Read more

Concealers - Almay - smart shade

Stay away from this concealer if you have dark circles or wrinkles. As a concealer it doesn't -- conceal! If you have good skin or if you're one of those 12 year olds who complain about their imaginary undereye circles (crazy but true), then this for you. The good thing is that does look natural in daylight because of its light diffusing properties. I use this when I have enough sleep …Read more

Moisturizers - SHISEIDO - The Skincare Day Essential Moisturizer

This irritated my skin for a few minutes after applying. Foundation does not hold that well. I guess it'd be ok for very dry skin, but I have combo skin which makes it look and feel greasy. I wouldn't use it as sun protection because you need to apply a thick layer to be effective.

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - infallible never fail makeup

1.0

Jun/02/2008

Remember the L'Oreal commercial where Milla Jovavich magically pops her head out of a white turtleneck sweater without leaving a trace of beige smudge on it? I can tell you it sure wasn't Infallible makeup she had on! This foundation comes off VERY easily. A tissue patted on my face will leave blotches of this stuff. Not only that, it irritated my skin which is thick and tough to …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Bioré - Pore Cleansing Strips - Nose

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2008

The strips do clean out my pores but they're not as thorough as Biore's Ultra Deep Cleaning strips which tackles just about every pore on my nose without problems except they're more painful. These regular strips took some gunk out but not all, and they did not do anything for the corners of my nose (my most pore-blocked area) no matter how hard I tried to press the strip down …Read more

Cleansers - St. Ives - Apricot Exfoliating Cleansing Cloths

5.0

Dec/26/2007

These the best and cleanest wash cloths for my face. These are unlike any facial cloths because they are more textured, dry and stiff like paper until you wet them with hot water to create a soft cloth rich with lather. They do an excellent job at removing makeup and exfoliating. I noticed I did not have any acne breakouts until I stopped using them. With other wash cloths that are less …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2007

I have mild undereye circles and am noticing fat loss around the eyes that comes with age. This concealor is great at covering up dark circles and it really makes my eyes pop out. I don't wear eye mascara or eye shadow but it makes it look like I do. I'm using the concealor in yellow, fit for my asian skin. Don't be fooled by its thin liquidy consistency. It has impressive …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Alpha Skin Care - AHA Souffle 12 percent Glycolic AHA

5.0

Dec/11/2007

Ever since I started using this four years ago, I've been recieving compliments about my skin which I never had before. I had really awful cystic acne skin as a teenager which covered up 90% of my face. I resolved that with birth control pills but was left with blotchy sallow skin. I had the kind of asian complexion that was visibily oily yet dry, dull and almost corpse-like. The first …Read more
