This is actually a review of Beautipaedia, which I subscribed to because I am HAVE TO cut down on the cost of cosmetics and skin care, and want to know where the overpriced stuff is. Less than $30 for a year is a lot less than I have thrown away on overpriced products. I know I am influenced by exotic lines in expensive stores, so this is my slap in the face.<p>
First, I read a bit …

Hair Color - Clairol - Loving Care ] [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/24/2008

Background - tired of paying $60+ for a one process color that makes me feel like I have a helmet on my head. And highlights, well, I don't have the money for that. Also not happy with the way my "older" hairs are looking dry and brittle. <p>

Went to a new hairdresser who said my fine hair (lots of it, but fine) is too delicate for permanent …

Treatments - Creative Nail Design - Solar Oil

Aug/15/2007

I have soft nails that bend in the summer and split in the winter. I always have hangnails and ugly dry skin tissue making them look worse.

Solar Oil is the best I have found for what I need. It absorbs easily, is not greasy, despite being an oil, and makes a big and immediate difference in the appearance of my nails. It prevents cracking and splitting and lessens the appearance …

Fragrances - Vera Wang - Vera Wang

My favorite.

And the favorite of many of the men in my life.

This is a formal, nighttime perfume. Use sparingly. It has a faint musk undertone and some florals. And it subtly says sex.

Liquid - The Body Shop - Ultra Smooth Face Base

Hard to review this because I could not get past the poor selection of shades. Not a single shade came close.

Also, worst packaging I have ever used, or tried to use. A stiff plastic tube that requires much effort to squeeze?, is that what I was supposed to do with this stuff.

I gave it two lippies b/c I think the texture was nice. When you finally got it out of the tube.

Treatments (Face) - Freeze 24/7 - Anti-Wrinkle Cream

Jul/25/2007

OK, listen up everyone. I have something to say about this stuff.

Maybe I know nothing because I am a total anti-wrinkle, age-reversal virgin. My entire life, now 55, has concentrated on prevention and I never believed anything topical could actually reverse visible aging, even just for hours, except maybe the use of Renova. Botox is expensive (and not topical, and not permanent …

I have two cleansers that are TBS and this review will cover both - Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser and Aloe Gentle Facial Wash (ingredients are basically same).
These are excellent cleansers for those of us with sensitive skin who want to gently clean our skin - but are willing to use eye removers for more stubborn water-proof mascara.
Both cleansers remove all the oil from my rather oily …

Skincare - Face - Awake - Lotion Refresher

Jun/23/2007

A gentle toner that does what it needs to do - take off the residue of dirt following cleansing. It does it without irritating my skin in any way at all. No redness, no breakouts, no hardening of the top layers, etc.
I have tried many others but keep coming back to this.
The package is a glass (I think) bottle, semi-transparent, with a small hole in the opening to pour lotion onto a …

Conditioner - Nexxus - Humectress

This is the classic conditioner.
It is not greasy.
The fragrance is subtle.
It can be used on dry hair (very lightly) to smooth and define.
It does not weigh down my hair, which is rather fine.
It does not claim to build up hair, which is OK for me, just helps keep it moist.
I have lots of fine hair, maybe if I had only a little fine hair, this product would not …
