Shampoo - The Body Shop - Ginger Scalp Care Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2009

I bought this for my boyfriend because his scalp gets dry and flaky in the winter. He's been using it for about a month and it has worked really well. As long as he uses it every day, there are no flakes to be seen. I tried using it just to see how it was, but it made my (long) hair really flat and limp. It's too bad because I really love the way that it smells. So, that's the only …Read more

Lip Gloss - Sally Hansen - Lip Inflation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2009

I bought the clear lip inflation. As a gloss, it's fine, but I bought it for the "inflation"--which is nonexistent. I do like the minty tingle, though it can be a bit drying. If you're looking for a super shiny gloss with no expectations of plumping, it's definitely good for the price.

Edit: I'm reducing my rating to a two because I've tried wearing …

Skincare - Face - Avon - Microdermabrasion

5.0

Dec/17/2008

I love this product!
I've been using it (since September) 2-3 times a week, but I don't take the recommended breaks between cycles. It's gentle enough that I don't seem to need them. In the last few months, my skin has felt so much smoother and seems quite a bit clearer. I don't think that this is some kind of miracle product or anything, but it's the only …

Fragrances - Demeter - Gingerale Pick Me Up Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2008

This does smell just like gingerale--bubbly and fresh. There is a tiny bit of soapy afterscent, but it's not very noticeable. I love this for hot summer days and it definitely works as a pick me up. No lasting power, of course.

Bronzers - Dr. Hauschka - Translucent Bronzing Tint

5.0

Jul/01/2008

I've been mixing this concentrate with my moisturizer for two months now, and I can officially say that it is my HG. I've tried almost every foundation/TM in existence, but this is the only thing I've found that evens my skin tone without making my pores look huge or feeling like a gross mask. I know that it looks a bit scary at first, but it goes on so naturally that you would …Read more

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Sunlight Color Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2008

This is the only thing I've found that covers my slight dark circles without screaming "concealer!". Just as with the foundation, I think that this would be great for someone with a good skin texture who needs something to even out their tone. I'll keep using it until I find something that doesn't settle into every crease quite so much.

Powder - Everyday Minerals - Semi-Matte Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2008

If you have great skin texture, but need to even out your skin tone, I think that this would be great foundation. It blends nicely, has good coverage and gives a nice airbrushed look--and there are tons of colors to choose from. But, if you have an even slightly uneven texture, this will amplify it like crazy. It made my pores look huge. And it just doesn't work for my dry skin. I do a …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm SPF 20 for Normal/Combination Skin

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2008

This foundation feels and smells nice, but that's about it. It gets a two only because it didn't break me out or turn me completely orange like a lot of other drugstore brands. The bottle opening is too large (why won't everyone switch to pumps?). The coverage wasn't great and it made my pores look insanely huge. I tried it with and without the age defying finishing powder--no …Read more
