    L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate

    Careful if you are prone to breakouts or dry skin...

    I’ve been using the product each night for two weeks. The product recently won Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty Awards for Breakthrough in Skin Care. Skin Genesis has a light scent, not flowery or medicinal and should not bother most people. The serum is watery in texture (much more so than Garnier’s Nutritioniste) but applies smoothly and spreads easily. A little goes a long way making this product a cost-efficient purchase. The serum soaks into your skin exceptionally well! Must say, I LOVE the packaging on this line. Very simple, clean, and with a spa-like feel. Excellent for a drugstore brand. As for ingredients- the active ingredient is Pro-Xylane that is said to strengthen skin cells. However, if you have skin that is sensitive to breakouts, this product may not be for you. Glycerin is the second ingredient in the Serum Concentrate and a known culprit for cloggin’ your pores. The third ingredient is Alcohol which may not help those of us with dry skin (whether year-round or just the winter). If either of these two categories fit your skin, I would strongly suggest trying a sample first.

  • Sally Hansen Line Freeze for Lips
    3.0

    Sally Hansen Line Freeze for Lips

    Dried lips after awhile... no line reduction.

    The lip treatment is a nice thick balm, applies clear and leaves a nice matte finish. After a few hours, it does seem to dry your lips a bit. The product tastes much better than the Pur Minerals counterpart. However, the results seem about the same- not much payoff.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Serum

    Bionic sampled Garnier Nutritioniste’s new line of Skin care, specifically the Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Serum. The serum is billed to brighten dull skin, alleviate fine lines, and even up your skin tone. Garnier’s facial serum smells wonderful!! Not medicinal, chemical or too flowery, it’s a just perfect blend of fruit and fresh. The scent diminishes quickly once applied. Application is smooth and easy. A little pea-size of product is easily spread across your entire face. I applied every evening for two weeks and my skin did seem much smoother, softer and firmer. I also noticed that my skin had a nice “glow” to it after about a week. In summary, I’d certainly recommend purchasing this product. If you’re hesitant, sample first or ask your local drugstore if they have a sample you could try. This serum has achieved second place behind my Boots Restore and Renew serum and this is simply based on value for me. The Boots product is a teensy bit more affordable on price per ounce. Worth mentioning is the container. The serum is packaged nicely is a fresh green pump, which I love since it’s sanitary and keeps the product fresh.

  • Sunsilk Anti-Flat Weightless Volumizing Creme

    The Anti-flat styling creme also performed splendidly. It kept fly-aways at bay, while pumping up volume. However, it didn’t go over the top (I’m one of those weird women who doesn’t like “too much” volume, I’d almost rather have flat hair.

  • Sunsilk Anti-Flat Conditioner

    Sunsilk Anti-Flat Conditioner

    Lovely, perfect moisture for normal hair!

    After sampling the SunSilk Haircare line (I used the Anti-flat variety), I decided to share my thoughts. :) The shampoo and conditioner samples were pretty darn generous (as far as freebies go). I got 3 washes for my medium length hair. Both smell wonderful, not too strong and it doesn’t end up lingering all day. The sudsing action was also sweet! My hair came out soft, smooth, and not tangled after each use. For a well-rounded test, I let my hair air dry as well as blow-drying and both left my hair with extra fullness and *bounce*. Very impressed! The Anti-flat styling creme also performed splendidly. It kept fly-aways at bay, while pumping up volume.

  • Pur Minerals Mineral Moisture Complex

    Pur Minerals Mineral Moisture Complex

    Very creamy, shrunk pores, good night cream!

    I tried out a nice sized sample of Pur Minerals Mineral Moisture Complex Anti-Aging Powerhouse (wow, that’s a mouthful). The sample lasted me for over a week- I applied a little at night before bed. (I got a free sample online.) I love the texture of this cream! Thick and rich without being greasy and sliding around on my face. It blended and absorbed really well. After use, my skin felt smooth, plump, and I ‘believe’ my pores may even look a teensy bit smaller. The scent is pretty much non-existent, so no worries there either. All in all, this is a definite recommend! I will make a quick note, this cream should be used at night since it does not contain SPF. Pur Minerals does offer a Day Complex with SPF 20, although I haven’t tried it out.

  • Maybelline New York Salon Expert Nail Color

    Maybelline New York Salon Expert Nail Color

    Nice color, but peels SO quickly!

    I picked up Maybellines Limited Edition polish in Amped Aubergine. The color is absolutely gorgeous! A dark purply-maroon with a slight shimmer; it’s similar to OPIs Siberian Nights. Perfect for this season’s nails. The love affair ended after only a day on my nails. It started peeling, chipping, and just generally became yucky. On my toes, I had a little better success. It lasted a week. However, my pedicure’s usually last 3 weeks or more. :(

    Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream

    Moisturizing and it really cleans. Keeping it simple!

    Noxema for normal skin, and twice a week I load some up onto a washcloth for extra scrubbing. I find I need to moisturize less with this face wash, it keeps my skin tone even, and doesn’t peel, redden or scuff up my skin.

  • Smashbox Eye Shadow
    8.0

    Smashbox Eye Shadow

    Nice even color, no pulling.

    Since this was my first trial of a Smashbox eyeshadow, I was not really sure what to expect. The shadow applies just wonderfully!! I was very impressed by how smooth the shadow is. It doesn’t pull on your lids. The pigment is nice and true on your skin. Since this was a lighter color, I used it for days that I wanted that “No Makeup” look (going to the gym, running errands, etc). It’s also great as a brow highlighter or to blend with darker shadows for a more subtle look.
