This just may be my HG lip balm. I bought mine at Dollarama for $1, and it came with two in a pack. I love the size, it's perfect for my lips. But most of all it is SOOO moisturizing. I have tried countless lip balms, nothing compares to this gem that was only a dollar. I have very chapped lips, all the time, and this soothes and keeps them soft with any gross film. I'm not a huge fan …Read more

I LOVE this. This gives me a healthy glow without any shimmer or glitter. Brightens up my skin, and even if I'm going through a bad day with breakouts, etc, this instantly takes away from all that and makes me look much better. Finely milled, no chunkiness going on, and easy to apply. And excellent value for money! I puchased the mini or sample size, so I'm going to purchase a full size …Read more

This is a very good concealer, considering you find your shade. I have very dark, hereditary circles that are difficult to cover. It covers amazingly (lol) even without my usual Bobbi Brown corrector underneath. Very opaque, creamy, easy to blend and has great lasting power. I got a great match in the colour Deep Golden. The key to getting it to look good is MOISTURIZE your eye area well and then …Read more

As of now, this is my HG scrub. I live in Canada and I've heard of people say that it's difficult to find their products, but I get mine at a Black hair care discount store down the street for about $5. Maybe anyone having difficulty would like to try there.
I have dry skin, as well as eczema that causes my skin to be pretty sensitive. I base my skin care routine on products that …

Conditioner - Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner

5.0

Perfect for COing. Silicone free, pleasant but not harsh scent (another reviewer pinned it down best, fruity with a hint of coconut), rinses out clean and leaves no buildup on my hair. The formula is thicker than let's say an Alberto VO5 conditioner (also good for COing though) but this is a tad more mosturizing for my hair. Awesome buy at $2, will repurchase!

I live in Canada, ordered the brush from the site and got it a little less than two weeks later. Came in a little draw string bag, a plastic brush guard, and a few informational pamphlets.
Upon receiving the brush, the handle felt sturdy and comfortable in my hand, and the brush itself is densely packed, very soft and is synthetic. I washed it before my first use, and it shed about two …

This mascara wasn't good but it wasn't bad either. I personally hate the primer. Firstly, I actually have never needed a primer (this mascara confirmed that for me) and secondly it was so difficult to cover the white primer with the black mascara no matter what I did. I will say this though, I already have long lashes, but this stuff made them sky high. Not perfect, I won't go back …Read more

I like this, it does work and keeps my lips soft. I just dislike the smell, it can be waxy. Other than that, it's cheap and cheerful, so why not?

Beautiful deep, wine red. It can be a little drying, but moisturizing your lips beforehand can stop that. It applies smoothly and evenly. It's not my fanstasy red, but it's more of a sultry one that's great for nighttime.
