hair. That is why I use the original Mach 3.

 

 

I got back from vacation a few days ago, and gave the cleanser

a try. No break outs, so far. It isn't bad, but I don't see why it

retails for almost $40.  

I got SO MANY spots from it! Worst razor ever! The spots are scarring now! Im so mad about that razor!

I loved the razor, but I noticed my daughter scratching her legs. I asked her what was wrong, and she showed me this  horrid red bumpy rash, all over both legs. She had used my razor.

 

Which :

1. ICK

2. No razor, cheap or pricy, has ever broken her out before. 

 

This was over 5 days ago, and her legs are just now starting to heal.

I'm pretty sure this is what's wrong with my legs too!  Sucks cause it gives such a close shave, but I've been scratching non-stop.

I'm starting to wonder if this is an allergic reaction to something in the moisturizing strip they used. Lots have reported issues with a rash, and lots have not. I think I'll donate my two razors, I have sensitive skin and eczema on my legs, I don't think I'll take that chance.

I LOVED the Whish body butter. But I don't think I want to spend $20+ on lotion tho. Bath and body gets me more for that price.

Gotta love that chilly weather! It just started to get cold here in NH and my roomie and I looked at each other and went "Yep. There goes shaving our legs!"

 

I did the same thing with a new perfume. Put it on before 12 hours of class, and had an allergic reaction to it. YUCK!

Aww I'm jealous of chilly weather!  I miss boots, sweaters, scarves and what not living in Southern CA! I do not miss snow but miss fall!  I am glad I will be heading to the midwest in October to see real fall!

I like it better than Stila Smudgesticks and UD liners, its much more precise than those are but I dont like it better than Eyeko liners (but these are not pencil eyeliners, they are marker type liners)

Try search for "Set of 4: Noir Cosmetics Eyeliner & Ofra Eye Shadow + Brow Pencil & Makeup Bag." It's $5 right now with 1 bid. On my phone right now so can't post link.

basically if you don't want something in one of your beauty boxes, you could trade it with something that another person may have that you like. there are threads full of this. trades normally take place via mail. it's really fun :)

I thought I was the only one having problems with this razor! It tore up my legs something awful :(

 

And my skin is not sensitive AT ALL... I've used really cheap and old razors and I've never had issues with razor burn or allergic reactions before. It's a shame because I actually thought the grip was really nice...

Just stumbled upon this thread today and it seems like a lot of people are displeased with bb. I actually canceled my subscription this afternoon. I was so sick of recieving foil packet samples of hair and skin care. If I wanted that, I'd go to Sephora or Ulta! I was always rather annoyed that I never got actual makeup from BB, with the exception for 4 products, after being a subscriber for a year. And the size the the samples were outrageous. I don't know if I'll do another subscription service or not. I have a friend who is subscribed to myglam and loves it, but I may just take my $10 a month to Ulta and buy a product that I actually want.
