I used this product way back in the day when I was probably 15-16 after i convinced my mom that I needed to wax my hairy arms instead of shaving them (ironically, I shave my arms now lol). At the time, I thought I had hairy-man arms, but I think it was just me being a paranoid teenager. This wax smells good, but it's very messy and definately a 2 person job. I would heat the wax in a pan of …Read more

Shampoo - Matrix - Sleek.look Shampoo

Apr/20/2008

I always buy Matrix products from salon sales when they go for $37.99 for the big bottles of shampoo and conditioner. These usually last me for over a year, so it ends up being pretty economical, considering that I wash my hair everyday. I started using this product because a long time ago when I lived in university residence, a girl on my floor with really beautiful, long shiny hair used this …Read more

Shampoo - Matrix - Color Smart Protective Luminating System Shampoo

I bought this from a salon that occasionally sells the Matrix large shampoo and conditioner for $37.99. Considering that one bottle alone goes for over $21, it was a pretty good deal. In my experience, I found that the products did a really good job on keeping my salon colour from fading, however, when I dyed my hair DIY at home, this product didn't help in keeping the colour. The smell is …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Mascara

I bought this on sale at Shopper's Drug Mart for $9.99, it normally retails somewhere between $12.99-$14.99. My friend recommended this mascara to me because it is her HG and she swears by it. I wasn't that impressed by it. For the price, I was expecting a lot more. The packaging is ok, with the 2 small ends as the brush. I found that black dried out much faster than the white primer. I …Read more

This was the first foundation that I ever bought when I was 17 years old, way back during the summer of 2003. I was at the DMV waiting to do my road test and I went to the Shopper's Drug Mart across the street and bought this for $6 (thats cheap for foundation) because Maybelline was discontinuing the line. I knew nothing about foundation, so it took me a while to figure out how to blend it …Read more

Dec/04/2007

After a few years of using Revlon's Colourstay make up and finally having the good sense of realizing that all their shades did not match my skin tone properly, I decided to jump ship and go over to department store make up and give that a try...good & bad things happen at Clinique. The colour was great and natural looking on my skin, much better than Colourstay which made me look ashy …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control

Dec/04/2007

I was in the market for an inexpensive cleanser with salisylic acid (sp?) because I was experiencing breakouts and I came across this at my local Wal-Mart. My previous experiences with the St.Ives brand had been with the non-medicated version of this cleanser which I was so-so about, but I figured that since this was on sale for $2.99, it wouldn't hurt to buy it and give it a try. Good …Read more

I love love love spectro jel!! i have sensative, oily acne prone skin (what a horrible combination lol) and this face wash is the only one that makes my skin feel like its clean while at the same time not drying it out. I have previously used Cetaphel (smells horrible and leaves a film behind), Oxy face wash and Aveeno Blemish Free Wash (or something like that) and those made my skin dry and …Read more

Toners - Clean & Clear - Deep Cleaning Astringent-Sensitive Skin (blue)

May/28/2007

I previously used Clinique #3 and #4 toner but i was running low on funds (i'm a poor university student in my final year) so I bought this on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada for $5.99. I personally love the Clinique toners, but for the price, they are not worth it. I found that this toner works just as well and the price is a lot more reasonable. The smell is something that I could …Read more
