Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Original Mascara - Burgundy

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2018

I usually only wear waterproof mascara, but I took a chance on this because I wanted a burgundy mascara. I have green eyes, so I was excited to give this shade a go. Unfortunately, the color didn’t show up whatsoever. And to top it off, it just looks dry and flattened out my curled lashes a bit. Big disappointment.

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% Wash

Mar/21/2018

My version's a little bit different - it's 8% sodium sulfacetamide and 4% sulfur. But, that seems similar enough and I think the inactives are pretty close, too. I can't be certain how great this stuff is on it's own, honestly. I use it in conjunction with Aczone (which I'm not convinced does anything, yet) and Rx Differin .3% (the real workhorse of this trio, imo). BUT! …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - L'Occitane - Milk bar soap

I’m really surprised by all the positive reviews. This bar dried out my skin within 5 uses. I love the smell, but just can’t get past the stripped feeling post-shower. Even my usual white Dial bar doesn’t leave my skin this uncomfortable.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Radical Skincare - Age Defying Exfoliating Pads

I want to love these, but every time I’ve tried them I end up with whiteheads. I don’t know if it’s purging or breaking me out, but I don’t want to find out. I’ve tried them on probably 3-4 separate occasions and each time the same result. It’s a shame, because they smell nice and make my skin feel soft and smooth.

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Triple Paste Diaper Rash Ointment

Jan/10/2018

THE BEST for diaper rash. My daughter's only had it twice, but they were doozies. This completely knocked this first one out in 2 days and this plus some fungal cream (they do make their own fungal version, I just didn't have any on hand) knocked the REALLY BAD one out in 3-4 days.

I've also tried it on an irritated zit I poked and prodded at and it definitely helped …

Discovered this during breastfeeding. Figured if it could soothe my inflamed nips, it could soothe other ailments. And I was right! I’ve used it on everything from a peely nose, to dry cuticles, lips, under eyes, you name it. I’m acne and clog-prone (don’t be jealous!), but haven’t experienced any negative effects. Fingers crossed I won’t, because this stuff is so emollient and comforting. I do …Read more

Mascara - Almay - Thickening Mascara

May/21/2017

Never have I raved about a mascara that isn't waterproof, but I'm raving right now. As long as I curl my lashes properly, this stuff gives me nice, dense, pretty lashes and I love that it comes in a black brown option. It's an average price for a drugstore mascara and it doesn't have an obnoxious, bubblegum colored, over the top tube. Just simple white and purple, so another …Read more

Body Scrubs - Soap & Glory - Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub

May/15/2017

First off, this smells so good! Maple syrup goodness, just like Demeter's French Toast. I've tried a lot of body scrubs in my day. Everything from store bought to homemade and to me this isn't that superb. I scoop some out with my hands, spread it between them, and go to work on the area I want to smooth. But unfortunately, it feels like this stuff starts to dissolve and disappear …Read more

Shampoo - Head & Shoulders - Instant Oil Control Daily Dandruff Shampoo

2.0

May/13/2017

I don't get it. This performed like any run of the mill moisturizing shampoo. It felt very moisturizing while shampooing, which was my first clue that it wasn't going to control any oil. And sure enough, first thing the next morning my hair felt and looked super greasy and I couldn't wait to wash it.
