Arielle N.'s (ElleMonroe) Beauty Product Reviews
I've been very faithful to this product since it came out. I started with the original LashBlast, but I prefer this. Doesn't clump on my thick lashes and stick them together and I can layer it for a more dramatic look, which I love. I also find it stays on well, too. Hands down, my absolute favorite mascara ever<3
The mascara itself, I actually like pretty well. I have thick eyelashes and 90+% of mascaras clump my eyelashes and make them stick together and it's not pretty. I've not noticed this product doing that the times I've used it. I think the tube is cute, too. The only problem I have is I think the brush/wand is very flimsy. I know they designed it that way intentionally for flexibility, but it's too unstable and I think it makes a mess on my skin because it's just too all over the place. I think the wand stem needs to be stiffer and sturdier. I love my CG LashBlast Fusion and have been faithful to it since it came out, but I'd purchase this again as well if it had a better wand. But all in all, not a bad product!
I forget how I acquired this, something a family friend was getting rid of. I so wish I had more, because this stuff is fabulous!! I was a bit weary, because I used Proactive years ago when it was first getting big and it was beyond irritating. Literally, dried out and burnt my skin so badly. It hurt & it was a pain to wash the cleanser off. But this mask does a lot to heal blemishes even overnight. I think it's fantastic! Not irritating, either, which is always a plus. lol.
I need more! Can't believe nobody has reviewed this product yet! I can't even put into words how much I love this stuff! I'm naturally incredibly fair-skinned, acne-prone and have an awful habit of messing with the breakouts I get which prolongs my healing time and worsens my scarring (which I seem to wind up with for a period, no matter what) and this toner helps the breakouts AND scarring both very well. I'm really in love with this!
I really don't have much to say other than I absolutely LOVE this moisturizer. Actually, I'm out and it's got me pretty sad, lol. I like the light scent and the way it makes my skin look and feel. I also find that it's great when I've got more of a tan and/or my skin has cleared up and I don't need such heavy foundation but do still need some coverage (I'll state for the record that I hate tinted moisturizers and find them to lack coverage and be awfully streaky and it just makes me frustrated) I have combination skin that tends to be more on the oily side - or downright slick in the Summer - and I just adore this particular product!
I've only purhased these once and just ran out in the last few days, but I LOVE them. Of course I don't know that there's any product like this that removes absolutely every little trace of makeup on your face, it's a given that you will still have to do your regular cleansing/care regimen. BUT, when I used these before washing my face, I didn't leave all the makeup residue behind on towels that I always seems to (which drives me batty) I'd definitely use these again. I also thought the smell was pleasant and they didn't appear to aggitate my sensitive, acne-prone skin, either.
For starters, I think this product smells soo good and I love the heating effect - especially in the winter! I've used this product a couple of times and really like it a lot and find it pretty effective. But my skin is pretty breakout prone & has always been, so it goes in cycles and will begin to look great one day and then start breaking out again the second I think I'm in the clear - so to speak. But I will say I would definitely buy this product again and it's worth the purchase, if you ask me! And it left my skin feeling so clean and soft, too!
