  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash

    This is an OK cleanser I guess. I've heard that it was good and cheaper, so I replaced my Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub Cleanser with this. I have pretty oily skin with moderate acne, but this dried out my skin. Also, I think this started to break me out a little. I've been using it for 2 or 3 weeks. I'm really considering switching to Clean & Clear because this cleanser wasn't exactly great, and the previous Neutrogena cleanser I used was kind of the opposite (I still felt a little oily afterward). I definitely don't suggest this cleanser to anyone unless you've got SEVERELY oily skin. EDIT: However, now I've been using this for about 4 or 5 weeks, and I've noticed that there has been slightly less acne. All I've been using on my skin is this cleanser, Avon Solutions Total Radiance Day Lotion (SPF 15), and once or twice a week, St. Ives Apricot Scrub for clear skin. Nothing too drastic has happened yet, but it's better than nothing!

  • Pantene Pro-V Normal-Thick Hair Solutions Smooth 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner

    I've always had issues with my hair. I have oily hair, but I can't ever seem to find a shampoo for my thick, oily hair that doesn't either dry it out or leave it still oily. My mom was very unwilling to buy me shampoo and conditioner for over $15-20. My family had been using Suave, and everyone had success with it, except me. I hate blow drying my hair because it's so healthy and I'm really protective of it, plus, what's the point in adding any heat damage to my hair when I can just let it air dry? However, whenever I let my hair air dry, it was frizzy and felt dry. Eventually, I said, enough is enough, I need something different. I was browsing the store's shampoo aisle when I saw Pantene's new line. I used Pantene 2 or 3 years ago, but my mom stopped buying it in attempt to save as much money as possible (Suave is only about half Pantene's price, even though Pantene is so cheap). So I bought Medium-Thick 2-in-1 for frizzy hair. I'd read that it took a few days for it to fully kick in. The first day, my hair seemed just as frizzy as always. But, the 2nd day, I again let my hair air dry. The result? I'm in love! My hair is so smooth, not frizzy at all, and everyone talks about how good my hair looks and how soft it feels. I really like this 2-in-1, and I'll definitely keep using it something like coloring my hair makes me switch to a different 2-in-1 (but, in that case, I'll probably use Pantene's line for color-treated hair). You can definitely call me a loyal Pantene buyer!
