    Benefit Eyecon

    Burns my eyes..ouch!

    i have a Benefit makeup kit and this eye cream was in it. I tried 2 time to use the Eyecon cream andit burned my skin very badly and left my skin so sensitive I could not use anything at all in the eye area for a week. Hadtorinse the eye creamoff myskin to help stop the burning sensation. Why did I try this cream twice? Well I wa sgiven another justine case as a gift and thought,,"maybe I will have less problems thi time" Nope the burning was just as bad. I triedto write a review on Sephora and they never printed it. Atleast here thissite is reader friendly and my review will show up.

    Avon Healthy Remedies Detox Patches

    Read up on how your body actually works, patches are impossible! Your kidneys and liver only detox not feet...

    Ok, it is impossible for these patches to work. First of all if you read any medical text books or health science books it is the KIDNEYS that do the main detox for your body. Then it is also the LIVER. Nothing can come out of your feet, as the top of your head or anythingthing like that. Also,if you were so filled with toxins you would be seriously ill and getting treatments at the hospital for too much toxins. My friend has to go to the hospital every second day because her kidneys can not get rid of any toxins. Her kidneys do not work and she has to do dialysis. If you want to know if you have "too many toxins" go to the doctor and askf or a kidney and liver finction test. Actually, even if you are healthy go and get those tests because you might have kidney problems ond not even know it.

  • Sebastian Potion 9

    Sebastian Potion 9

    A good classic product- still around!

    Overall this product is quite good for dry hair and contains 9 different oils and moisturizers. It works well on wavy and curly hair and as others have mentioned do not use too much. Now I still find the tube format annoying as it can easily leak and is not great for travelling as it is a metal tube. But at some salons I have seen they have the larger size 500ml? about and it comes in a tub with a pump- so I think you would waste less that way as well.

  • Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color

    Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color

    Remember "mood lipstick"...now "mood" blush!

    I was quite intrigued by this product and had also received a special offer from my favorite store today- so it was hard to pass up trying this item (offer was get x amount of points to "spend" later). I get to the store and then asked about this product- it is more costly in Canada as well $34 plus 15% tax! As soon as I saw the Smashbox O Glow I was instantly reminded of the mood lipsticks that were supposed to change to an individual colour. I did notice that on the tester tube had some of the product on it and that without touching anyones skin the product was pink when exposed to air. That just lead me to think the product is definitely was more hype than anything. Still I like trying new blushes and was looking for a new product- so that fits the bill.

  • Vaseline Intensive Rescue Heal & Repair Balm

    This cream is quite thick and good for dry hands. I did not think of putting it on my face as I have oilier skin. But might try that in the winter. The tube is not huge at only 100ml if I recall. Overall a good everyday cream!

    Neutrogena Hand Cream

    Thick Cream also in fragrance free!

    I was looking for a winter hand cream and was reccomended this be several people. When I did try the hand cream to be quite "waxy" feeling and that it did not absorb much. I guess that could be good if you were spending a long time in the outdoors. I'd have to just say the hand cream is ok and has a convenient size that is easy to carry alomg.

  • Bonne Bell Lip d'Votion

    Bonne Bell Lip d'Votion

    Nice taste and not sticky!

    I usually wear lip gloss by itself during thr day. The pen applicator is a neat idea and mess free. From what I have seen the shades are mainly sheer and can be worn by pretty much any skin tone. If you wanted a darker look you could always use one of their lip liners undeneath! The taste of the lip gloss is also written on the outside of the packaging- so there are no nasty surprizes there! Lastly I really like how the tube is clear and you can tell when the product is all used up!

  • Blistex Lip Infusion Cherry Splash

    Blistex Lip Infusion Cherry Splash

    Non Sticky No colour yay!

    I really like this "balm" as it goes on smoothly and keeps lips well moisturized. I really like how there is a metal ball for the applicator as it gives a cooling sensation as well. The cherry taste is quite strong- so that can be annoying at times. Another plus is that there is no colour in the balm so you do not need a mirror to put it on. The price is also very resonalble- so go ahead and pick up all three kinds to try!

  • Noxzema Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Astringent

    Noxzema Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Astringent

    Too much alcohol and menthol = ouch!

    I thought this toner would make my skin feel very clean and refreshing and it does at first. But before that you have to get over the high content of alchol, along with menthol and salicilic acid. My skin did feel "squeaky clean", but then became oilier after a few hours. For an antisceptic product it is not bad- but you could also just buy a bottle of rubbing alcohol and dab that on your face. I usually like Noxzema products, but can not bring myself to say anything really good about this product.

  • Got2b Hottie Oil Therapy Repair Blasts Conditioner

    I bought these hot oil therapy "blasts" as it seemed like a neat idea and convenient to take on a trip while wanting to maintain my hairstyle. I really like how the product is in 3 or 4 single use capsules, so you should not use too much more than that at once. When I went to use this in the shower my hair was actually more tangled afterwards and was more of a pain to unsnarl. I usually give hair products I do not want to friends or family- but with this one I actually asked the company for my money back. Maybe someone with thinner straight hair might have better luck. I happen to have med length naturally wavy hair.
