This soap was gifted to me by my boyfriend. I wished I could give this more than an average rating. It could be my skin is too dry and sensitive to use this soap on a regular basis. I don't think the scent resembles the Coco Mademoiselle parfum, but it does have a nice lingering scent. I couldn't give it a terrible rating, because it seems to work for others. I say give it a try and see …Read more

Has Paul Mitchell changed their formula? I've been using the Awapuhi for some time, but noticed my scalp was burning and noticeable hair thinning. My scalp would itch like crazy a few hours after washing my hair. It could be my scalp is drier since menopause kicked in. I'll stop using the Awapuhi for now and try another shampoo to see what happens.

I found this at Walgreen's recently. It may be new. Anyway, I thought for the price point $9.99 it would be worth a try. This brow gel reminds me of Tarte's Busy Gal Brows, but at half the cost. Both have the tiny wand that dispenses the right amount. I purchased this in the Blonde shade. It's more like a cool taupe that works with medium brown brow hair like mine. I've never …Read more

I'm not sure if this is new, but it is to me. What caught my attention was the tester on the shelf. I was intrigued by the tiny wand and ecstatic over the color shade. I swiped the tester in Medium Cool Brown over the back of my clean hand to see if it would match my own brows. The shade was spot on. Do you know how hard it is to be somewhere between a medium to dark brown? I love how easy …Read more

I headed to Ulta with one thing in mind, that was to try out Bareminerals foundation stick. Instead, I tried out the tinted moisturizer. I guess I have passed by this several times during my visits to Ulta. I didn't like how the foundation stick applied to the back of my hand. The foundation stick looked heavy and the color ( Cashew 3.5 ) didn't look right. I reached for the tinted …Read more

I purchased this in Buff 215 ( N ). I think it's a good color match for my light skin tone. In MAC I'm NW25 for reference. There are two issues I have with this foundation 1. It looks matte on my skin, my sunscreen beforehand is moisturizing, so that didn't help . 2. Even with a light application, I look like I'm wearing makeup. I might have to use Becca's Backlight …Read more

Like with all L - Ascorbic Acid type products, D.E. leaves a sticky residue feel afterwards. And with all L - Ascorbic products, I will rinse off after a few hours. I just can't handle that tacky feeling. I purchased the mini combo C Firma + B Hydra serum. I realize the B Hydra is suppose to be used with the C Firma, but like it better on it's own. I'm not completely sold on the …Read more

I can't get over how well this cleanses without stripping or drying out my very dry skin. I was afraid with the foaming action, I would experience tightness. My face feels soft to the touch afterwards. Just a small amount and the 5 oz. size will last a long time. Sephora sells the travel size to try before purchasing the larger sizes.

I've used this once and can say it won't be a repurchase. It comes in a jar and supplied with a spatula. I like that it's unscented and easy to apply. I didn't experience any sensitivity as previous reviewers reported. Where the problem lies with me is how my face doesn't feel clean afterwards. I thought it would be great as a one step cleanser, but I felt my face needed …Read more
