First of all, this is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant, which means that it doesn't stop you from sweating the way antiperspirants do. <br>

I have developed an allergy towards antiperspirants (I get itching, redness and bumps under my arms) so I had to find a deodorant which keeps me somewhat dry - at least nice-smelling! - during the day. That was NOT an easy task …

I should have read the reviews before trying this conditioner! I got it for free, probably because it was going to be discontinued. I really like the scent, and that's the only good thing I can say. I have fine, long and dry hair and this conditioner left my hair an oil slick. It was almost impossible to rinse out, it took me forever and although I must have rinsed for more than ten minutes …Read more

The scent of this soap is very faint (which somehow surprised me as the hand cream I have from Nubian Heritage is very strongly scented) but pleasant.

I'm using this as a hand soap and find it VERY drying. I could not imagine using this as a face soap or even a body soap because it's really super drying. I definitely need to use a hand cream after washing with it. For …

This product is awful. I can't believe they are usually $28, that just goes to show that you don't always get what you pay for!

The palette itself is small, flimsy and - IMO - fairly unappealing. But I got a good deal (I paid less than $10) and I don't think packaging is that important, anyway.

Oh well. Some of the earlier reviews on this product mentioned …

Cleansers - Signature Club A - Vanilla meltdown makeup remover

Nov/20/2010

I must admit that I'm rarely tempted to buy anything from Signature Club A because 1.) I find Adrienne off-putting, and 2.) the few products I've tried has been really disappointing. So when I stumbled upon this makeup remover I was not really excited to try it, but I needed a new makeup remover (I usually use a cleansing oil) so I bought it. First of all - the smell is to die for (I …Read more

*** First of all, I want to let you know that I don't have a huge problem with eyeshadow creasing on me. I usually use a thin layer of foundation & powder as a primer and then follow with a creamy base and I have very little creasing. So although I say that this doesn't crease, it *might* do on you if your eyelids are very oily. ***

I received my sample of Pixie Epoxy …

I'm in two minds about EDM eyeshadows. The ones I love, I REALLY love. The ones I dislike, I - you guessed it - REALLY dislike.

The ones I love - Cypress, Mistletoe, In the Garden and a couple of others which names I don't recall right now - looks beautiful on my eyes and are very complex in color (when you have collected a fair amount of MMU e/s, you really come to …

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Aussie Perk Me Up

Aug/08/2009

This is a holy grail item for me! I use it on top of concealer, actually, just a very, very light layer, and the result is luminous and light-reflecting. I couldn't use this alone as a concealer, though, because my dark circles are pretty bad and would require such a huge amount of the aussie perk me up which would look unnatural and metallic.

I agree with the previous reviewer …

Makeup Brushes - Coastal Scents - Pink Oval Taklon Lip Brush

Aug/08/2009

I think this is a great lip brush! As I love a dark red lip, I use a lip brush a lot (I think red lipsticks look better applied with a lip brush rather than straight from the tube) and this is just amazing value for money! It's so cheap and works perfectly. It's synthetic - which is really preferable when it comes to lip brushes, I've never found an animal hair lip brush I like - …Read more

The price is really good so I purchased two of them from the start! It's not a bad liner brush, and the price simply can't be beat, however it doesn't make as thin a line as I would like. If you want an eyeliner brush which can make a super thin line, this isn't it, but it's a good brush nonetheless and I do not regret my purchase.
