I had quite a bit of hair cut off yesterday. My hair was pretty long (down my back) before and now it’s just below my shoulders. I have really thick curly bushy hair and he flat ironed it really straight with a GHD flat iron (from England). It looks really nice, but I don’t want […]

Wen hair products

I ordered a trial kit of Wen hair products ( www.wenhaircare.com ). It’s got chemicals in it that I normally try and avoid, but I was having so much trouble with both my scalp (itching and burning) and my hair (totally out of control — dry, very bushy and frizzy) that I decided to try […]

Nutra-Lift make-up foundation

The Nutra-Lift company has a new make-up foundation: http://www.nutra-lift.com/default.asp?pageid=41664The ingredients look good. The description says that it needs to be layered for heavier coverage though. I don’t know if they have trial samples either. They have a moneyback guarantee but by the time you pay for shipping back and forth, it’s an expensive proposition to […]

ordered samples of Nvey organic creme foundation

I ordered some samples of Nvey’s Eco Creme Deluxe Foundation at http://www.holisticbeauty.net/Nvey_Eco_Cosmetics.htm . It’s $2.50 for each color sample plus shipping and handling which was $6.60 (no tax to California). The make-up is very expensive ( $58 ) probably because it is imported from Australia. They also have an organic liquid foundation but it contains […]

Another contact number

I like the christina cosmetics compact since it is perfect for my handbag. Since it is multipurpose I am able to carry less than what I used to carry. However, I am getting more auto-shipments than I am using. I am trying to contact the customer service to change my shipping dates, but the "800" […]

Gabriel and Zuzu Luxe Natural make-up

I deleted the post about Sonia make-up from Target. Basically, I tried the Sonia mascara and ended up returning it and got Gabriel natural cosmetics mascara from Whole Foods instead. My eyes did feel a lot better last night so maybe it has been the mascaras I was using that was causing the problem. The […]
