I almost always have a Dove body wash in my shower at any given time because it's a hydrating, creamy & moisturizing body wash that smells good and doesn't leave any residue on the skin. While the scent doesn't last as long as a some other brands it's a very reliable option for anyone looking for something that their whole family can use in the shower.
I've worked with liquid foundations before and even though they are not always my favourite, I like having a variety of foundation styles to choose from, whether cream, liquid, BB and light/medium/full coverage. It's good to have a variety to choose from. But I don't think I'll be choosing this again. The initial finish of the foundation is light to medium, and it works very well with concealers and I found it easy to layer blush/bronzer/highlight over the foundation smoothly. It looks like a fairly natural finish, not too matte and not shiny at all, but applying the foundation was a bit difficult. I ended up having to pa it on my skin/apply with my fingers. But after applying the foundation, I knew I only had a few hours before it would all break down. I tried wearing this foundation with primer spray, oil, silicone primer and moisturizing primer, and the silicone primer worked the best but BARELY kept it all together. My foundation would break down within about 4-6 hours and would simultaneously look like it was melting off my face, as well as breaking down and splotching up. I could only wear this for 3 hours if needed, nothing more.
I've been using the Revlon Mega Multiplier for almost a month now and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. I have fine, short-to-mid length lashes, and while they aren't super sparse, there aren't too many of them. The multiplier definitely makes it look like I have more pages in there, and is a good buildable formula to coat your lashes and last all day. It's not insanely voluminous which is good for me because those mascaras end up looking crazy on me. The wand is conical which makes it easy to get those finer lashes, and it's not too wet, so it doesn't smudge or run off easily. The tube is really easy to hold and locks in place to make sure I don't leave the cap sightly unscrewed and let it dry out. True story.
I was hunting after this palette for MONTHS after the initial release. I'm partial to warm pink tones but this red ochre? The raw sienna? The umber? This palette had formulations of classic colours that looked unlike anything I've seen in one palette before! Everybody was initially freaking out over that gorgeous red hues, but it's more than that. This palette can do a solid neutral, a desert sunset-esque smokey eye, and edgy runway looks. All in one palette. The shadows themselves are buttery soft, almost a bit too soft, but they go on very well. I find there's a lot of dust on my palette but I don't see a lot of fallout on my face. It has a nice sticking power. Also the brush that comes with the kit is actually very useful and I always like a full=sized palette that lets you keep a brush stowed away for your more daily looks. I usually use this brush for my go-to neutral base and my go-to dark smoky edge. The palette itself is also lovely. The velvet is a nice touch, the size is good, and the magnetic snap actually helps keep the palette closed in place. I generally like to keep it inside its paper box to keep eyeshadow dust from falling out, but that's my finicky-ness.
I was glad to try the new White Cheddar and Caramel popcorn as I'm a huuuuge fan of Chicago mix in general, but I think this mix might be too mild for me. I prefer a really strong cheddar flavour in my Chicago mix popcorn. My boyfriend liked it well enough though and polished off our bag verrrrry easily! Also I found the amount of product in this bag was very low compared to other popcorn brands, if I was going to bring this to a party is need two bags because this was barely enough to fit in a small bowl.
I received this product free/complimentary for testing purposes but all opinions are my own.
Who says that you need a partner to enjoy mistletoe? ;) When I went in the store recently I asked one of the Lushies which of the Christmas bombs was their favourite, she IMMEDIATELY led me to Mistletoe and said that the jasmine scented bath was HEAVEN and it left a gorgeous purple hue in the shower. I was sold. I took it home and used it that night. It fizzed beautifully and soon my entire bathroom smelled like jasmine and ylang ylang. The only reason this bomb gets 4 stars instead of 5 was that it's not as moisturizing as some of the other ones I've used. But it was heavenly all the same.
Part of me really wanted to give this review a four, but there are just enough caveats to the review that I had to knock it down to a three. I was really excited to try the Revitalift Dual Overnight Moisturizer because I usually have a multi-step evening skincare regime so I was ready to cut a step by having a dual purpose product. The serum and moisturizer that combine when the lid is depressed is REALLY interesting, it looks cool and it's a nice feeling on the skin, especially to go to sleep. But my problem was two fold. 1. The moisturizer has a shimmer to it. For an evening moisturizer. I reaaaaaaaaally don't like shimmer in my skincare. 2. The moisturizer didn't fully absorb into my skin overnight. I felt like I had to wash the moisturizer off in the morning, like an overnight mask, not like a regular moisturizer, but unlike an overnight mask, it didn't enhance my skin moisture as much.
Overall, it's not a bad product but I'm not sure I'd buy it again with the two points above.

I own several exfoliating cleansers and while I don't like to use them every day, they can be a valuable part of your skin care regime, especially if you wear makeup almost every day like I do. The problem with this cleanser is that it's simply way too harsh for anybody who doesn't have very oily skin. I felt like it was rubbing my skin raw after every use. I used it twice a day for a week and then dropped to once a day or every other day the second week and I still think it was too harsh.

I have to say, I'm not huge on products that really gouge you for the sake of convenience. I understand it's easier to grab hold of one of these pads and dab your face than dabbing from a toner bottle to your cotton pad, but to only get 30 pads in this container is a bit of a letdown. I don't think it's worth the value.
If you have PARTICULARLY oily prone skin, it may be worth it for the formula, but I found this product SUPER dried me out and caused irritation, especially when I used it directly after the exfoliating cleanser. It really irritated and bothered my skin.
