Cleansers - Noxzema - CLASSIC CLEAN Original Deep Cleansing Cream

Mar/23/2015

I tried this after reading a post about a girl trying the routine her grandmother used, which revolved around using this cleanser. The girl slathered it on at night and then only used water to rinse it off in the morning.

The comments about leaving noxzema on your face at night and then experiencing pimple shrinkage is true. It really happened for me and I was really excited. However …

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

This is a really good foundation. I would compare it to NARS tinted moisturizer but the consistency is thicker, it's not as hard to take off, it feels less heavy on your face but it does tend to emphasize dry patches more. It gives a finish that is pretty matte but slightly dewy to be natural looking. It lasts all day. I have oily skin and I do get oily nearing the end of the day but This is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Derma Roller

I had pretty bad acne scarring, especially on my cheeks. When I heard about the Derma roller the first time, I worried about was the pain because I am not very tolerant of pain. I bought a 0.5mm and 1.0mm. I tried the 0.5 mm first twice a week at nighttime. I sterilized it by swirling it around in water and dish washing solution, rinsing and then spraying it with isopropyl alcohol. It hurt at …Read more

First, this thing is fastened with thick plastic ties. If you're able to find scissors that can cut through the ties, it would be better if you used that to cut your hair because these scissors are dull and probably couldn't even cut through the things they're bound with.

So, I wanted to feather my bangs by using the scissors sort of like a razor. It wouldn't cut …

It was okay at first. Didn't seem to do much but I just wanted something to nourish my eye area and this had green tea. About the 5th day of use it, it began to sting. My eyes were tearing up and everything. It was horrible.

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Healthy Defense Oil-Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 45

This product is greasy and it smells like some variety of citrus... which is sort of strange but not bad. Overall, it does a good job and is easy to apply but I wouldn't use this on my face even though it's oil-free because of the grease factor. As a body sunblock it's fine.

This stuff is pretty good. It has ridiculously high SPF and it's not oily or greasy. It didn't bally up like the Age Shield line and it absorbs into my skin fairly easily so there were no accidental white streaks of sunscreen on my face. This is a good product and it's affordable.

This stuff really does work. It makes you hair grow faster, your nails grow longer and makes them overall look better. I'm not too sure about the skin claim though. I liked that my hair and nails looked better but I stopped using it because i had to make more trips to the hair salon. In cases of a bad hair cut, this stuff is such a miracle product.

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Cool Effects Liner/Shadow

Nov/20/2009

I really like the whole eyeliner eyeshadow idea. It makes application really easy. If it's pretty well sharpened, you can get a dark color and just put some in your crease really fast and run out the door. Really natural looking, really easy. Cons about this product is that the color fades pretty fast, even with a primer. And MAJOR eyelid tugging. Really bad. It'd probably get better if …Read more
