I got this as a gift, the fact this is $28 before tax is ridiculous if it was under $15 I would def consider purchasing this. I also much prefer a squeeze tube or stick application rather than a pot b/c sanitation. Like others have said, it's quite tacky but to me, this is probably the best thing about the balm because I found that the tackiness enhanced the staying power and effectiveness …Read more

Mascara - Urban Decay - Troublemaker Mascara

Jun/04/2018

One of the worst high-end mascaras I've tried. It claims to lengthen and volumize but it barely does, my lashes just look tinted darker and not much else. You would need to sit down for 10+ minutes and apply 3+ coats to achieve some decent definition, which I have no time for and have drugstore mascaras that do the job in 1-2 coats. It smudges under the eyes pretty easily and also stings …Read more

I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and after watching positive YT videos and reading reviews on the web, I decided to try it out for 3 weeks. I only applied this on my scalp and didn't dare use this on the lengths of my hair or else the harsh sulfates in this would fade the cool tones in my balayage that I pay so much to maintain. I hated how immediately after rinsing my scalp would …Read more

Feb/09/2017

Holy grail status for my KP and acne-prone body, I can finally wear cute bikinis with confidence! Unlike other exfoliators/scrubs I've tried (mostly drugstore), this really does what it says, I have significantly less KP bumps on my elbows and glutes. My body is all around smoother, brighter, and less dull looking from the scrub removing the excess keratin and dead skin. The price is pretty …Read more

Masks - LUSH - Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask

Jan/30/2017

In my opinion, I don't think Mask of Magnaminty is worth all the hype and believe the popularity behind this mask is because it looks like cute like mint chocolate ice cream (off topic: yum), the Lush name, and of course the pleasant mint scent. I have combination skin and mild hormonal-related breakouts, the primary thing I seek in a mask is to see how effective it is in removing/extracting …Read more

Oct/19/2016

Like many others, I'm on a mission to find a good alternative (non-aluminum containing) deodorant. I am halfway through the container and so far I am -not- that amazed by this. It is a still a decent "natural" deo in my opinion given that all the other "natural"/alternative deodorants I've tried have been absolute and utter duds. I like that it doesn't dry my …Read more

Jun/12/2016

I do prefer lotion-like shaving creams mainly because I can dry-shave with them in a pinch (don't judge, we've all been there), however I didn't notice any major improvements on my skin's softness and this sometimes didn't provide enough protection from razor burn. When I ran out I quickly made use of something else in my shower and discovered it that works bette r--VO5 …Read more

Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum

Jun/12/2016

I love eyeliners in general, been an avid wearer since middle school, and my favorite are liquid eyeliners. This Physicians Formula liquid liner pen is the most probably disappointing liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. I, like many others, read reviews before going to the store so I had high hopes for this. After about 5 uses, the pen started to get clogged before each use, no color would even be …Read more

Jul/14/2015

I love this product! I bought it because of course, I wanted a my lips but better color and it gives me that result. There is no offensive smell to this, it's lightweight, and it has a slightly cooling sensation much like the Revlon Balm Stains but much cheaper! Like others have mentioned, the stain left behind is brighter and pinker but I personally don't mind the brighter color and I …Read more

Jul/06/2015

This stuff is garbage, it made no difference for my lashes. I used it just as it is instructed until it ran out. My lashes are a short-medium length, not too sparse nor too thick. I noticed no difference in lash length or any new baby lash growth. I had some high hopes, I usually never purchase expensive products so wasting ~$40 bucks on something that didn't work bothered me. I …Read more
