Worth all the hype

When it comes to beauty I believe that cleanliness is one of the most important steps along with applying SPF creams and moisturizers, drinking water and sleeping (which is hard to do since I love to read till the wee hours). Cleansing loosens dirt particles, dislodges makeup stuck in every nook and crevice or prepares the face for the new day ahead. Morning and evening ritual of face washing can be a sweet indulgence, especially when I pamper it with the fancy Komenuka Bijin rice bran powder. The container houses thirty packets and each one can provide about three or more uses, depending how much is poured out. I love to mix the pale grains into a smooth and creamy paste that caress my face with a soft flurry of gently cleaning lather.I won’t repeat the list of ingredients as each Komenuka product comes with instructions and a detailed list of exotic items. The glow my face obtains with this wash is really fabulous and there is no dryness and discomfort, in fact I look forward to washing my face and take great pleasure at the benefits I can feel and see. Without thorough cleansing, it would take about twenty five days for the dirt and build up to wear off the face, not including the dirt that would start piling up on top of the skin as it would try to slough itself off. Proper care is necessary for a harmonious relationship with our biggest organ that expresses even the tiniest nuance, joy or discord through our facial muscles and the quality of the epidermis. The tiny grains in this powder blend well with water and are portable and easy to take when traveling as no one wants to drag bottles of creams and liquids on any trip. I also recommend the shampoo and conditioner form this line as they are truly standout products that do make a difference in how my skin and hair looks and feels.- Kasia S.

Not remarkable

This stuff didn’t do anything extraordinary for me, and certainly did nothing to justify the high price. It foams up and washes off easily but I broke out while using it. Either I was having a reaction from the ingredients or it did a poor job of cleansing(my guess is the latter). The only thing I really liked about it is its portability. This product is mediocre at best and there are much better cleansers.

this product is great!

At first, I wondered about rice bran and its effectiveness as a cleanser for skin. It made sense, but I had never used it before. Previously, I had found oatmeal to be a very effective detoxifier for my skin, when I had a bad skin rash. It pulled out the toxins very quickly and my skin felt so healthy!The ingredients for this great product, put out by Komenuka Bijin Facial Cleansing Powder are: rice bran extract, aloe extract, seaweed extract and coconut oil. That’s right….all natural ingredients that you can very easily pronounce (unlike some skin care products whose moisturizers, cleansers and toners consist predominantly of chemicals, engineered in a lab, that are tested quite heartlessly on innocent lab animals). The great thing about this gentle scrub is that it doesn’t take much to be effective. In fact, they reccomend that you use only 1/3 of a packet of the product, then mix it with warm water in your hand and apply it directly to the face. You can feel the cleansing powder work almost immediately. For me, my skin felt a lot cleaner, once I had massaged it in. Once I rinsed it off, my skin was so soft. There aren’t any fruit acids, here, to burn and add abrasion to the delicate facial skin. Also, my face felt firmer and looked smoother. Great product! Yes, it’s a little pricey, but a little goes a long way and it’s very effective!

Better than any other cuticle treatment I’ve tried!

I got this as a birthday gift from my dad who had a store clerk pick it out for him because naturally he knows nothing about nail care. I wish I knew who she was so I could thank her, because this stuff is AMAZING.This works better than most "big brands" of cuticle oil/creams I’ve tried. Essie, OPI, Burt’s Bees, and ORLY can’t compete. It works into your skin so easily, I barely need any pressure to push my cuticles back anymore, and I used to need A LOT, and they look so pretty now.First off, a little goes a long, LONG way. 3-4 drops was enough for both of my hands to be almost soaked in the stuff. I have the 8 oz bottle and I anticipate it lasting me the better part of 2 years, at least, with twice daily use. This oil is super moisturizing, it’s heavy duty stuff. I saw a world of difference in my cuticles after the first use. They looked neater, not even slightly ragged, and the skin around my nails just felt so wonderfully soft. Also, it doesn’t dry greasy or sticky like some cuticle stuff does. It takes a little while, but it dries, well, dry.The consistency is watery, but honestly I think that’s a good thing because it makes working it into your skin so much easier. The bottle makes it tricky to handle the oil without getting it all over everything, so do yourself a favor and use a cleaned out nail polish bottle or an empty eye-drop bottle or something to make it easier on yourself. But don’t worry if you get it all over your hands, they’ll end up super soft too if you do!I don’t think I’ll find anything than this, I think I may have found my HG cuticle oil. So ladies, TRY IT, it’s awesome!

No thanks!

I like the packaging and the "all natural" approach to cuticle cream but this stuff did not fly with me.It is very greasy and does not absorb into the skin around the nails. Even though I used very little and wiped my fingers with tissue paper… I left little finger grease marks all over everything I touched.The smell is terrible. At first I thought it smelled like Lemon Pledge, which wasn’t great, but tolerable. However, after it started drying, it left more of a lemon with a touch of skunk smell on my fingers. Not good.

Like Lemon Pledge for your cuticles

This is a nice tin of thick balm that is laden with lemon oil. You rub it into your cuticles to prevent cracking, flaking and drying. You actually can rub it all over your hands if they are very chapped. The oil even helps to keep nails from splitting and cracking. It smells like a lemon grove.The three-pack is nice because you can put one in your office drawer, one at home at your desk and one in your purse.

Used for Years

I fell in love with these in local stores almost a decade ago. Over the last several years, they’ve been more difficult to purchase in person so I’ve been ordering them through Amazon. They’re absolutely wonderful and I mix them with my own facial soap, using them more as an exfoliator. They remove a lot of sweat, dirt, oil and makeup.

Wonderfully Effective!!!

I love these because they are disposable and work really well. I don’t use them too often (maybe once a month or when I feel like I need it). They do the job quick and easy, then just toss in the trash. I don’t have to worry about mold growing or anything like that. Totally sanitary. I highly recommend and will buy again. Since I don’t use them too often, they last me a very long time (years – – LOL)

Helping to heal my cuticles

My cuticles and nails are in terrible shape from a bad self-manicure and constant hand washing. This oil is great at helping to moisturize and heal the skin. I have hope that in a couple of weeks I might actually have fingers that don’t look terrible!

LOVE It!

I’ve been getting my nails done for 17 years by the same nail tech, but decided to save some money and do them myself. I am doing gel nails and after doing that I apply this to my cutiles and it is awesome! I love how soft it makes my cuticles and the skin on my fingers. And the pretty Lavender scent is really nice!If you do your own nails, gel/acrylic etc – you should definitely get this. Your skin dries out from the prep used to dry your nail bed and your nails drying out from polish removers, so this is a great addition to your regime. And if you use a drill and accidentally nic your skin, it will feel better and heal quicker using this oil.Even if you don’t do gel or acrylic – this would be a great addition to your manicure. I even use this on my husband as he works at Home Depot and his hands go through TONS of abuse! Cuts, scrapes, slivers, hangnails – SUPER dry skin – you name it and most guys hands need a little TLC! His nails look sooooooooo much better – and he says they feel better!I love it and would recommend to anyone!

Strong and Durable

When my stainless steal cuticle pusher and nail cleaner came in I must say I was impressed with the high quality of the tool. The tool has a bit of weight to it – not too heavy, but not a flimsy tool either. I found that the pusher worked well. In fact, it worked MUCH better than plastic ones I used prior to getting this tool in the mail. As far as the cleaning end goes, the small scoop shape helps clean the dirt from under my nail with ease. I also like that it has an easy to grip and hold part to it as well. It’s just a rough/engraved sort of section on the tool itself, but it does make holding and handling the tool much easier. As I said, I’m impressed and definitely have found my new favorite tool when it comes to getting my nails clean and taken care of!

Useful, but the steel is very strong smelling

The Majestic Bombay Cuticle Pusher is simple and easy to use. Now that it is summer time, I like painting my nails. Keeping them healthy and nice looking can sometimes be difficult to do, but with the cuticle pusher, it helps to make things a little bit easier. To use the Majestic Bombay Cuticle Pusher, all you do is use the flat end to push back your cuticles. The curved end you use to clean under and around your nails. You will have an extra grip on the cuticle pusher because of the texture on the tool. The edges were buffed smooth to prevent for catching the nail and damaging it.The past few weeks I have been using the Majestic Bombay Cuticle Pusher and have been very impressed with the tool. I only have one issue, but I think that is just an issue that I struggle with in general. I hate the smell of the cuticle pusher. I’m very sensitive to metals and the smell of the tool is very strong. I have to put a pair of rubber gloves on to use it or have someone else use the tool on me.For the price, I would most definitely recommend purchasing the Majestic Bombay Cuticle Pusher. It is a very helpful tool and does actually help to keep the cuticle pushed back. It is useful, cheap, but sturdy as well. If you can get past the metal smell, it is something to definitely keep in your manicure/pedicure set.

Not enough moisture to solve Colorado Hands.

I used to buy this and use it without lucky. Seems like when I lived in San Francisco it did the trick, but in dry arid Colorado the product isn’t rich enough.

Great smell, very moisturizing

I got this to help with my dry winter cuticles, which were getting flaky and peeling. Immediately after applying, they felt soothed and softened. It might be a bit much in milder weather, as it is a bit oily, but it could just be that I applied it heavily. I’ve also put it on dry knuckles before bed, and by morning they are much softer.The smell is fantastic! It’s a natural sweet lemon scent, not cloying or fake-smelling. Just fresh, citrus-y, and delicious. I think the smell is my favorite part.Due to the consistency, I would really call this more of a balm than a creme. This would definitely not be something you’d want to leave in the car on a hot day!

CND solar oil

CND solar oil is strange. It does not really moisturize my cuticles as they are still on the dry side, but they seem to grow back slower and easier to remove. I shellac toes and nails and use on both. It is not exactly oily, but, does not completely evaporate as some reviewers say. Since Shellac is porous I feel it is important to use this product. It does not stain. I do recommend this product and I just ordered a 2nd bottle. I try to use once a day but not always. Wish it were a little oilier and that way I know it will moisturize better.

Solar Oil is fantastic!

I use it with my Acrylic and occasional Gel nails… I take meds that dry out my hands and feet which then leads to separation between my natural nail and the coating. With use of this product, I don’t get hang nails like I used to and in this size bottle, I can more reasonably use it for my toes as well. Once you’re over 40… (44 next week), you really need great moisturizes to sustain your skin. I strongly recommend this product.

Can’t Live Without It

Yeah, I know that sounds melodramatic, but if you had perennial dry cuticles prone to cracking, splitting and hang-nails you’d understand. Also great for cracked heels. If your nails are a mess, spend a week without polish and massage this in 3-5 times a day. You’ll be amazed at how rapidly, and completely, the nails an nail bed heal.

Outstanding buffer..the #11 Diamancel !

I had never heard of this product before I came across some reviews of top beauty products on makeupalley.com. Folks raved about the power of this little tool. At $47 I was hesitant but decided to ante up. And I am so glad I did.The #11 buffer is an outstanding tool. Used dry, you simple rub it across your feet. Dry skin quickly sheds off leaving a soft smooth surface. I follow the buffing with a good moisturizer and tuck my tootsies in socks. The results are smooth, soft pampered feet!The price may seem high at first, but a pittance when you think of all the money you would have spent on pedicures.The tool is designed to last for years and after use a quick wash with a small soft toothbrush and soap will have it ready for the next use.An excellent value!

Luxurious Foot Pampering

Since my husband promptly stole my last foot file, I had to order myself another one and decided to try this brand. This is honestly the best foot file I’ve ever used and the idea of using diamonds in a file adds an entire new dimension of luxury to this item.The price seemed somewhat steep in comparison to other items, but then I figured maybe it would last longer than files that needed replacement files and maybe it wouldn’t break as easily as cheaper plastic files. So, the advantages are a longer lasting item that works at least twice as well and the results are very apparent within five minutes of using this product. My heels could now be described as “silky.” They are as smooth as satin sheets, almost unbelievably smooth.If you are a Spa Girl at heart, this product will completely impress you. You will also save money by creating your own little spa at home. This doesn’t just remove dry skin it polishes your feet. The file rinses very easily, it’s nice and sturdy and is very easy to use.This may be a 100 star product!~The Rebecca Review
