Skincare - Face - Liz Earle - Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

Mar/03/2011

I found out about Liz Earle on a beauty blog (http://www.beautyscribbler.com/ which is fantastic and I am not being paid to promote it). I had tried Clarisonic and the Shiseido brush, and both just destroyed my skin. I wanted to add a gentle exfoliating step to my daily routine but didn't want to add harsh exfoliators.

I bought the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and muslin cloth. …

Moisturizers - Ole Henriksen - Pure Perfection

My sensitive skin was doing well with a glycolic toner, so I thought using this as a night treatment would help. I was using it on nights I was not using the toner. But alas, my skin did not agree. The lactic acid was the culprit, and I broke out in a mess! It has taken almost a week, and I am still fighting cystic zits. This is a definite no buy for me.

Masks - DHC - Mineral Mask

Jul/20/2010

I have been using this product for two weeks, and every other day and as a spot treatment. It is easy to apply, no smell, and rinses off easily. As a clay mask, it also does not overly dry out my skin and has been great at "attacking" stubborn TOTM acne. I will wash my face and apply a light layer for 10 minutes. It dries quickly. I will rinse off, and my skin softer. I will leave …Read more

I went to 2 Target stores ans a Wal-Mart before finding this at CVS. These are hot-sellers! It took me a few tries to get the pins to stay in place. I have medium-longish, thick long hair. I did have to use a pony tail holder though. I am happy to report that the bun is still in place 7 hrs later.

Pros: sturdy pins, affordable, easy to use after a few tries
Cons: Need patience …

This product has been wonderful for my skin. I had a terrible experience with Retin-A Micro and was in need for a simple, gentle routine to clear up acne and the mess left behind from RAM. I had tried this product as a make-up remover only, but after reading the reviews, I made this my MU remover and cleanser. I started with a small pump amount and massaged this onto dry skin for almost two …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Retin A Micro

Mar/19/2010

Sigh. I have lost another battle with acne. My derm prescribed this for my hormonal acne. I thought the product would help clear my skin as I didn't experience any peeling and only slight irritation. I could feel that skin on certain parts of my face were smooth, but what good is smooth skin when there are still breakouts in other places?

I used the prodcut for 3X a week for …

Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

Jan/07/2010

So I'm a big The Hills/The City fan and think Whitney is a natural beauty. I read that she uses Fresh Soy Face Wash and Cream, so I figured why not give this a try. I just started Retin-A Micro and my usual Burt Bee's Acne Cleanser was too painful to use. I bought the smaller size of the cleanser at Sephora. I love the consistency of the product, and my face felt so clean afterwards …Read more

Shampoo - Garnier - Fructis Curl and Shine

I initially bought this product to help give definition to my textured, Asian hair. It's not incredible straight but not wavy that anyone notices. Texture is what my hairdresser calls it. :) The shampoo definitely helps in bringing out the wavy texture and gives nice volume. But I realized this makes my skin break out really badly--anywhere my hair touches my face or neck, awful …Read more

Sunscreen - Bliss - Best of Skintentions Daily Moisturizer

Nov/30/2009

I'm sad to read that some users had a bad experience with this product. I am notorious for never using sunscreen b/c it was causing such bad breakouts. :( But after seeing the signs of crow's feet, I had to find something tolerable. I rec'd a sample of Best of Skintentions from Sephora. I was skeptical at first as I instantly thought the product would break me out and be …Read more

Oct/26/2009

I was not expecting much from this product because it was all-natural. I had been struggling to find a good cleanser and my Bliss Steep Clean had lost its cleaning power. I saw an ad in Lucky magazine and took a chance on this wash. The bottle is $10 at Target. I used it morning and night for about one week, and amazingly, the product did work. Blemishes were smaller, and I saw clear skin …Read more
