I have color-treated hair, I normally use purple shampoo by Matrix and conditioner either by Nexxus or Wella, but I use this shampoo/conditioner when at my SO's. It's cheap and does the job, and I really love the scent. I normally have an oily scalp so I only condition a couple inches away from the roots to the ends where it often gets tangly. I had no issues with residue.

Of all the brow pencils I have tried, I think this one is my absolute favorite. For $2 it is definitely more bang for your buck and I hope the brand continues this price point! I got my mom into using it also and she's obsessed. This pencil is not too waxy or dry, not too soft or hard, pigmented yet able to build in depth--it really is the perfect balance of both in a brow pencil like other …Read more

I usually try to steer away from buying cheapo nail polish and stick with my Essie's & OPI's but I couldn't help but snatch thus color because it's very pretty and neutral. This formula dries pretty fast (~5 min between coats in order for no streaking). The brush kind of bugs me because it's not smoothly tapered. Other than that it's opaque in 2 thin coats.

When I decided to color my hair back in 2014, I knew if I wanted to make my expensive balayage last I had to stop washing my hair EVERY day. I began my dry shampoo journey, and after trying a cheapo aerosol (my first one was an herbal essence dry shampoo) I was convinced that aerosols weren't for me (I had very fine Asian hair that gets greasy at the roots literally within hours after …Read more

I pair this product with my Clarisonic and it's worked wonders. I OCM with L'Occitane's Shea Cleansing Oil and double-cleanse with the Yes To Cucumbers milk cleanser using my clarisonic (Radiance brush head) and altogether, my face is super clean without feeling like it was stripped of its oils. I follow up with Garnier Micellar water and there is no residue of makeup/anything …Read more

This mascara has been around for as along as I could remember! Growing up I would always see this product being sold at the .99 stores, or the cheapo shoe/clothing stores, or the Mexican grocers! I've never bought these in my life as I thought they probably wouldn't do anything for my lashes, until many years later I went to a makeup store, and they gave me the Pink & Green for …Read more

Feb/23/2016

I have fine Asian hair that falls near my lower back and bleached/processed! I personally discovered the Olaplex system through my hairstylist who suggested I try it because my hair was gradually becoming difficult to manage (hard to detangle + lots of split ends). My hair has been consistently bleached (balayage) to (what I've overheard my stylist saying lol) a level 8 for the past year and …Read more

I've been using this product for the past week or so, and I know I should at least wait a month to see results but I've added this product into my night cleansing regime and my skin looks great. I wear makeup during the day and use Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cleansing Oil, rinse while showering, towel dry my face, and then go over my face with the Simple Micellar Water as a toner, and finish …Read more

Mar/08/2015

Personally, I have yet to use this mascara without curling my lashes only because I have super-straight, Asian lashes that are too thick (yet sparse) and will be weighed down by ANY type of mascara if they are not curled manually by an eyelash curler lol. I first saw this mascara when I went to South Coast Plaza Sephora and it was the first day that the Roller Lash debuted. There was a …Read more
