Skincare - Body - Shea Moisture - African Black Soap 2-in-1 Bubble Bath & Body Wash

5.0

3 months ago

This stuff is so nice. I've been on the hunt for authentic African black soap for a while (the chunky brown kind). I've yet to find any in stores. I've been using Soap Works shea butter bar which is decent and only $2. I found this at Walmart ($12 Canadian) and was so excited. I haven't tried it as a bubble bath but this makes an incredible face wash. I have oily, acne prone …Read more

Cleansers - Equate - Beauty Foaming Facial Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is Walmart's version of Clean and Clear's Essential Foaming Facial Cleanser and is one of the very few products where I find better than the original. Well, it actually seems to be very similar except Equate's has no parabens and C&C's has four different parabens. Equate's smells the same except not quite as strong. And it's half as much in cost :)
I …

Cleansers - Andalou Naturals - Citrus Kombucha Cleansing Gel

Love this! I actually tried it about 5 years ago and didn't care for it then. It was drying and to me it seemed almost identical to avalon organics vit c cleanser. I rarely used it so I gave it away. I saw they repackaged and reformulated it so I was curious. I have acne-prone-oily-lame skin and it's so hard for me to find cleansers that don't make it all worse. Plus, I've …Read more

Scrubs - Bioré - Pore Unclogging Scrub

3.0

8 months ago

I've only been using this for about a week and so far I like it alright. It very, very gently exfoliates and I can use it every day if I want. It's like a minty and tingly cream cleanser with a decent amount of soft beads in it. I don't know if the formula just recently changed but people seem to think it has plastic microbeads in it but it actually has synthetic wax, which …Read more

Other - Colgate - Total Toothpaste

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2018

I have avoided this toothpaste for SO long because it contains triclosan. Colgate Total is the only brand that contains triclosan because apparently it is carcinogenic. But I've had gingivitis on the inside of my top teeth for 2 or 3 years and have tried so many things for it. Neem toothpaste, tea tree oil toothpaste, Colgate Total mouthwash, Crest Pro-enamel toothpaste (the stannous …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Retin A Cream

Oct/08/2017

This stuff is such a pain to use! After you use it your skin peels for days. I originally bought if for clogged pores that nothing would help with and it didn't work as amazingly as I had hoped. So for a few months I used it for an acne spot treatment, which it worked amazing for. But the last couple months I've been been using it for pitted scaring and amazing isn't even a big …Read more

Cleansers - Desert Essence - Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2017

This has been my go to cleanser since 2001. I always try other cleansers and always end up back to this one. If you have oily, acne prone, clogged skin that's hard to normalize this has been life saving for me and recommend you try it. If you have really dry or really sensitive skin and are scared to try it or if this doesn't work for you they have a much gentler one called Thoroughly …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Yes To - Tomatoes Daily Repair Treatment

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2017

I've used a couple of these before when it was called acne repair lotion and I actually liked it better then. Now the new acne repair "treatment" version has more alcohol and is not quite as moisturizing. It also smelled better before and calmed redness really well and now not so much. It sinks into the skin really well and makes for a good primer still. The change is disappointing …Read more

Lip Treatments - LypSyl - Lip Balm Sensitive

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2017

I have been obsessed with lip balms for a good 20+ years. When I was 15 I started out with Bonnie Belle lip smackers and would have 10 on me at any given time (now I can't stand those) and have been on a quest to find the perfect lip balm. Well 20 years later I found it. Lypsyl!
This brand is great and they don't test on animals :) While I love flavored lip balms, I do not love the …

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Acne Triple Clear Cleanser

5.0

May/31/2017

I actually really like this cleanser. I think it's my favorite Clean & Clear face wash because it does an excellent job of cleansing and my skin feels balanced afterwards. I notice with C&C cleansers they have either way too much glycerin or they contain sodium laureth sulfate or sodium C14-C16 olefin sulfonate, which my skin can't handle and goes on an oil rebound an hour after …Read more
