    Aveda Brilliant Damage Control

    Insurance for Hair

    I've gone through about two bottles of this stuff. I love the smell and it is very light-weight. You can really spray several sprays and then style as normal and really not tell it's in there other than the smell. It's not like it makes my hair more smooth or straight instantly, it's just I use it for protection against heat styling. It's more like hair insurance. I'd say it's a pretty good value for the money because it lasts quite a long time.

  • Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    After doing my research, I finally gave in and purchased a Clarisonic Pro model. I think this brush will work differently for everyone dependent on skin type. I personally have really oily skin that is blackhead prone and oddly enough frequently dry. I read many reviews on how people said their skin became less oily, shrunk their pores and made their skin really smooth. After a solid month of using this brush twice a day, I cannot say my skin is less oily or my pores have shrunk (to the best of my knowledge, I don't think much of anything will shrink a person's pores). I can say however, my skin is much more smooth. The dryness has pretty much went away which is amazing since it makes it a lot easier to apply makeup. This brush is truely great at removing makeup. After washing with it, I wipe my face with a towel and all my makeup comes off. I typically use a toner after and not a single trace of makeup shows on the cotton swab. I also feel that this helps with my blackheads. While it's not getting rid of them, it's helping to prevent new ones and also minimize how deep they get. I'm going for my first facial this weekend so I should definitely be able to tell how great the Clarisonic is at maintaining my blackhead free appearance. Finally, one last positive I'd like to point out is that this brush is really easy to use and actually gives me more motivation to clean my face twice a day. Sometimes I'd be too tired at night to wash off my makeup, but with tthe Clarisonic, it's so easy and fast to wash your face, there's really not excuse not too! I think this brush is a really great tool to pamper and take care of your skin, and if you use it, totally worth the money!

  • Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula

    Ok, let me start out by saying, I do not have curly hair. My hair is fine and fairly straight, however I like everyone else these days style my hair on a daily basis with a hair dryer and straightener. I also highlight my hair several times a year. In combination with the stress I put onto my hair, coupled with the fact that as we grow older our hair changes and typically becomes more corse I decided to give this product a try. While I have to be careful of overdoing it, I only use a very small amount, I'm talking less than a dime size. Plus, you have to apply to your very ends, otherwise this product will leave your hair looking and feeling greasy. If you use it right, your hair is left so soft, straight and manageable it's ridiculous! This product has been a staple for me for years. I especially love it in the summer to fight humidity.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
    10.0

    Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    Wow, that's all I have to say!

    When I read all the reviews on this product I was skeptical to say the least. I thought, none of these people really have super oily skin like I do. I thought there was no way this product could live up to all the hype, no way it could really prevent my eye shadow from slipping and creasing for the entire day. I WAS WONG. I can't believe it! I wish I would have listened to all the reviews earlier. This product makes my eye shadow last all day long. Seriously, take it from someone with ridiculously oily skin and eye lids, this stuff works. I apply it at 7 am and by the time I remove my makeup at 10, it's still working!

  • Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

    I have straight fine hair, but lots of it. It tends to get oily very easily and I blow dry and straighten it every day so I needed some kind of conditioning treatment. I had read great reviews on this product and thought, for the price, you can't beat it. I do like this product, it smells great, works quick, and doesn't leave my oily prone hair too weighed down or greasy. Plus, my hair is always soft and smooth after using it so I really don't have any complaints.

  • Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash
    7.0

    Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash

    Loses Effectiveness Over Time

    I have tried this, along with the toner and repairing lotion, spot treatment, oil control cream. The combination of the face wash, toner, and lotion seemed to work decently at first, but over time, it lost its effectiveness. When I called to discontinue the shipments they informed me there is a line that is stronger and contains a higher percentage of benzoyl peroxide. After using that for several months and not seeing much difference I finally ended my relationship with Proactiv. Overall, if you can afford it and it works for you, then great, but beware, overtime it will more than likely stop, and you'll have to move on to something else.

  • Proactiv Daily Oil Control

    Don't waste your money like I did. I have very oily skin and I don't think this did anything to help. In fact, and I hate when people claim this, but I think it made me break out. Get some Clean and Clear oil absorbing sheets instead.

  • Proactiv Refining Mask
    4.0

    Proactiv Refining Mask

    Smells like sulfur

    I received this as a "gift" when I ordered the Proativ package. I never really used it until recently they started promoting it more as a spot treatment. I've used it as a mask and spot treatment, for the 15 minutes and overnight. Overall I don't feel it does much and I hate the way it smells. Plus when I leave it on overnight, it's really hard to wash off in the shower in the morning and it gets all over my pillow, even if it's dry. I'd say, unless it's free, don't waste your money!

  • Neutrogena Wave Original Vibrating Power-Cleanser

    I purchased this because as most others, I fell for the marketing ploy. I have never used it in the shower, in fact, each time I use it I place it face down in the plastic container is came in in my medicine cabinet so it dries properly and water doesn't get into it. I kind of figured that would be a potential problem from the get-go and judging from the other reviews on here, I was correct. One thing I didn't care for is that it's not at all cost effective to buy the pricey refill pads. Plus, I don't feel they lather very well. In order to get more lather I would wet my face, then use the pad to work up a lather and finally attach the pad to the Wave. Instead of purchasing more refill pads I simply use my Aveno face pads on it. They are large cirlces so I cut them in half and attach it right to the way. I like Aveno face pads much more and it's way more cost-effective. While I haven't used this religiously since it pretty much fell flat in my eyes right off the bat, I would say that a definite positive is the fact that it does leave your skin very soft. Other than that, I can't say much else positive. After the battery on mine gives out, I'll probably chuck it like the rest of the beauty junk I try and doesn't meet my expectations.

  • Nivea A Kiss of Moisture Essential Lip Care

    I have the one with SPF and I really love it. It comes in a convenient stick form, rather than a jar that you have to stick your finger in or a tube that gushes out and gets all sloppy. It goes on clear and has the faintest scent, which I love. There is no taste and best of all it does what it says, moisturizes your lips without leaving the waxy residue that most other chap sticks do. I'm really glad I found this stuff!
