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

1.0

11 months ago

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

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

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
