Angela W.'s (angelkitty) Beauty Product Reviews | Page 17
just like me. HAaaa! Ok ok, all jokes aside, this is a great moisturizer. It absorbs immediately and isn't greasy at all. Better yet, it doesn't FEEL like it contains dimethicone. That's the stuff that supposed to hold the moisture in your skin but usually makes mine feel like it's suffocating under a rubber forcefield. The scent of this is also lovely. My boyfriend is now hooked too, even with the hefty pricetag. That says something right there!
Oh, it's a miracle you want? Done. I couldn't be happier with this product. I have like, the worst skin in the universe, and this product is single handedly making it better! I added this into my routine a few weeks ago with low expectations. Most products totally disappoint me and usually only deliver a face full of new acne. But this has actually done a great deal to clear up my problem areas! It also feels great to have a nice, clean start in the morning before I put my sunscreen on. I'm stocking up.
And it smells good, too! I love how my Mac Lipsticks glide on- yet stay put. They're the perfect consistency for mixing too. When I'm really trying to class it up and go for that porno look I do a heavy smokey eye with their Kohl liner and super light lip in Hue (baby pink) topped with Lipglass in Underage.
If you flat iron your hair you need to invest in this.
Not only do I torture my hair with flat irons and curling irons, but I like to bleach it, so it's particularly fickle. CHI has a ton of great products, this one being no exception.
After conditioning with whatever product I'm using for the week I slather on some CHI Infra Treatment. Then more conditioner (I know- that probably cancels out the CHI product but it seems to be working for me so I'm gonna do that). Then I get out of the shower and apply CHI Keratin Mist. And finally I top it off with Straight Guard if I'm planning on going straight that day.
This isn't a set routine, mind you. I use less or more of these products depending on how my hair feels in the shower. But as far as products go in general, CHI rarely disappoints.
I was pretty pissed when I saw this sitting on the shelf at TJ Maxx the other day... for $14.00. I'd just shelled out twice that at a salon "sale." So definitely get your Maxxinista on, before you get ripped off like I did. What I can't complain about is how it works. I bleach the crap out of my hair like every other week and I'm pretty sure this stuff is the only reason I'm not half bald.
The conditioners are even better. I like to use this with the K-Pak Reconstruct as well as the regular conditioner. My hair seems to respond better if I mix it up in the Shampoo/Conditioner department but I don't see this falling out of the rotation any time soon.
Jessica Simpson (reportedly) used this...
so of course I ran out and bought some too. This was right around the time her trampy bikini video came out... where she looked fantastically bronzed, btw. I was not disappointed by this product. In fact, it's so thick and wonderfully bronze I actually had to dilute it to get any kind of natural look. And what better product to tone it down with than Jessica's own Body Whip Cream (rememeber those??!!). Such a shame that line didn't pan out. But at least Body Bling (and my fake tan) survived.
Better than Barnes' Body Bling.
And "dryer" than Maran's Bronzing Oil. Overall a good product. You can apply it straight from the bottle and don't have to dilute it with anything. The glitter isn't so overwhelming that you're going to look like a Vegas stripper, either. The only gripe I really have about this product is the bottle. I ended up having to pour a different, lighter oil, once I got towards the end of the product to get the last of it out.
Who doesn't want to smell like milk and honey?
Uhh, well sometimes I don't. Not sure what it is about the fragrance of this lotion but I can only handle it sometimes. It's definitely going to remain in the rotation, though. What I like about it is that it's super light and doesn't get filmy or rollie-pollie if you're massaging it in for a while. That tells me my skin is really absorbing the product. And like all Burt's stuff, I love that it's mostly organic and not tested on the maminals.
I use this on my hands, feet, knees... actually I use this pretty much everywhere. The scent is super fresh and makes me feel totally energized. Whenever I feel like smelling nice but don't want to reach for the perfume I put this behind my ears and on my wrists. My boyfriend always wants to know what it is....... I'll never tell.......
