    New York Color SKY RISE LENGTHENING MASCARA

    Didn't do anything on my lashes

    I bought this on a whim when I was on vacation because I forgot my mascara. I didn't want to spend a lot and I found this one for really cheap. I didn't have high hope for this mascara. As I predicted this mascara couldn't hold my curled lashes the second I put this on my lashes started to go down. But I used it for a week until I got back home and tossed it in the trash can. Will not repurchase.

  • Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

    Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

    good gentle cleanser

    I have combination oily t-zone/normal on the rest with dry flaky acne healing acne spots,in short,my skin is complicated. I was looking for a facial cleanser to use in the morning and this cleanser is pretty good. The texture is like a gel,if you ever try the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel the slippery texture is just like that. Also if I compare this to Cetaphil face cleanser or oily/combo skin,the Simple cleanser is a bit thicker. I won't be using this at night after I oil cleanse because I prefer a foamy cleanser for that. I alternate using this cleanser and the Cetaphil cleanser and I'm not sure which one I will repurchase once I'm done with both cleanser.

  • Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

    Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

    A gentle face wash for oily/combo skin.

    First impression review----- This is my first Origins cleanser. I'm a face cleanser junkie but most of my cleansers are drugstore except my Dermalogica special cleansing gel cleanser but I only use it with clarisonic mia after I oil cleanse to take off my liquid foundation. I was in a hunt for a face cleanser that is gentle enough for everyday but can take off my mineral makeup. The SA suggested this cleanser for my combination skin. I have oily t-zone,normal cheeks but I have dry flaky acne spots. I tried it this morning and I only needed a pea sized amount and it leather in seconds. I have round,wide,chubby face and with other face cleanser I usually need more than a pea size but not with this one. I love how soft and creamy it felt on my skin. The reason why I didn't give this cleanser 10 stars was after I rinse it off my forehead feel squeaky clean but on the rest of my face it feels like there's a film left. Maybe that's what it meant to do? I don't mind it for my morning cleanser but I don't trust it enough for me to use it after I oil cleanse. I'm still unsure if I would repurchase but I will finish the tube. I will give an update if it gives my skin trouble.

  • PMD Personal Microderm
    9.0

    PMD Personal Microderm

    soft smooth skin after 1 treatment!

    Skin background: I suffered from severe acne for the past 2 years until late last month I finally found out the culprit of my acne,it was all the SILICONE in all of the skincare I was using. The majority of people do not have sensitivity to silicone but I'm one of the unfortunate. Now that I got my acne under control I still have lots of dark red hyperpigmentation and dry flaky spots. I own a clarisonic Mia but it didn't do much on exfoliating the dry spots,making base makeup appear blotchy. I really didn't have any big expectation when it comes to at-home face treatments but the PMD really blew my mind. From the size that's also very portable to take when you go on a long vacation and the very thorough how-to DVD and the performance of PMD it self. After the first use/treatments I can see the dry skin circulating inside the head of the PMD I couldn't believe it. After that I use a very gentle toner (no alcohol in the ingredients list) to bring back the Ph balance to the skin. My skin was so smooth I couldn't stop touching it. When I used it the second time there wasn't as much dry skin in the filter and makeup applications becomes a lot smoother because my dry patches were gone. I love the PMD,I only give it 9 starts because of the price. But its a good investment in the long run.

    E.L.F. Blush

    Review: Tickled Pink

    I was looking for an everyday pink blush and I picked this one at target for $3 I love pink but I'm not a fan of pink with predominant blue undertone so for me this blush is perfect. its a more muted pink and it shows up on the skin as a satin finish. I never noticed any glitter. the reason I only give 4 lippies is because on my nc27-30 skin I have to really build up the color for it to show but I've been into sheer looking blush anyway so I don't mind it.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner

    I've tried the old and the new version of this toner. I really like the old version and finished 1 big bottle and 2 travel size bottles and of course they reformulated the ingredients, they add super fine baking soda in to the mix. you have to shake the bottle before you put it on the cotton pad,the SA told me that it'll help control oil. so I gave it a shot and honestly it didn't make any difference on how long my face stays oil free during the day. I was using this toner day & night and then out of randomness I started to think that because I have very large pores and clogged prone if I use this at night the powder that's in the mix will sit on my skin and blocked my pores. I like using baking soda as scrubs but I know that I washed it away but with this toner I let it sit on my skin. At the end I was forcing myself to finish it by not shaking the bottle and only pour out the green liquid. From all the tea tree line of products this is the one I will not repurchase. why do they have to mess with the formulation?? smh

  • Dove Clear Tone Sheer Touch Deodorant

    I used up the sheer touch one (yellow gold-ish color) and I honestly think there's no difference between the two besides the smell. I'm not a deodorant girl and I'm a stay-at-home mom so I don't wear deodorant when I'm at home only when I'm running my errands and it took me a while to finish it. I really didn't see any improvement maybe because I didn't use it everyday. The staying power was okay but I'm not a fan of the smell. It's too musky-subtle-powder-ish kinda smell and I prefer a fresh fruity smell. Will not repurchase.

  • Herbal Essences Shine Shampoo

    This is my HG shampoo. I tried lots of shampoo but my scalp is very sensitive with some of the ingredients and I always ended up with dry flaky dandruff on some spots and itchy oily on others. I tried Pantene, Garnier,organix,l'oreal,etc. nothing worked and made it even worst especially the Garnier shampoos. I have veryyyyyy long hair (past my bottom) and because of this I have dry ends. This shampoo is pretty clarifying so the way I use this shampoo is I lather my scalp and hair down to my shoulder and leave the rest of the hair be. When I rinse the lather will run down and clean the rest of my hair without being to "squaeky" clean to the point of stripping all of my natural oil. Unless I feel like my hair is very dirty that's how I wash my hair (every 3rd day). Sometimes I switch up with the pink colored one but this one is my fave. I always buy mine from target.

  • Tone Hydrating Body Wash

    Tone Hydrating Body Wash

    Review on the scent Mango splash (new packaging)

    I'll be honest here,the reason why I picked this body wash was solely based on the smell. I'm born and raised in Indonesia,and the mango smell just brought back memories. It's pretty moisturizing and felt really nice on the skin. If I'm short in time I can just skipped on applying body lotion all over (just on my elbows and knees) and I'm good to go. But I have very clogged prone back and I can get back acne easily,because of this I can't use this on my back (Shea butter is a pore clogging ingredient) so I use separate soap for this (I use the body shop soap bar).I'll be repurchasing but not anytime soon. Btw,I don't like the packaging. I prefer it to be in a clear bottle and less teeny bopper looking,I'm 28 after all. But what ever its pretty cheap so you get what you pay
