Onto my update on previous products I've used. A lot of products may have great initial results, but down the road, the results may change :( I've used previous pictures I've taken because I'm actually home for the weekend using my sister's laptop haha!
First we have the Fiberwig mascara which I raved how it does not smudge off at all. Which is still true. Except I found out I have some allergic reaction to the "fibre" formula of this mascara. I used this mascara straight for a week and realized a weird red rash around my eye area, and for the longest time I thought it was because the weather was getting dry. I came to the conclusion it was this because it was the only new product I've used around my eye. Once I stopped using it, the rash started to disappear. A month later, I was determined to try this stuff again because I loved it so much but same thing happened. Used it for one day and small red patches of rash came back. This is so so sad, but just thought I'll let you guys know to use this with precaution. Also, a few of my readers mentioned that the flakes of fibre would fall off and irritate their eyes. I bet it's not ophthalmologically tested =/ so be careful when using this!
Next up is Revitalash. It offered amazing results within the first few weeks on my lashes. After 2 months of consistent use I realized it didn't offer continued lengthening. My lashes reached a threshold length and eventually naturally fell off. I've used it periodically now to revive my lashes but I don't use it consistently anymore. Now my lashes are back to their original length. Which in my opinion I don't mind so much. I was and am still skeptical of these lash lengthening serums just because it's used so close to the eye - eyesight is just too precious to lose! So again, use with precaution!
Lastly, one thing that I have had great results from beginning to present is Carlson's Cod Liver Oil. I remember a reader a while ago asking me if I still take this. And the answer is YES YES YES! This is my HG product in terms of skincare and keeping your hair and nails healthy. But especially for skin. I used to get nasty cystic acne but I don't get it anymore. Rarely anyways. When I do have one sprouting (usually I press the spot and I feel pain, signaling some kind of cystic acne) they never become full size/mature, and I can usually treat it within a few days to a week. Which is an AMAZING improvement compared to the months and months it would take for my previous cystic acne to heal - not pretty. I take one teaspoon everyday but when I feel like my skin needs an extra boost I will take it twice everyday.
So there we have it! Are there any products that you can think of that worked out for you in the beginning but later on wasn't such a hot item anymore?
