Here are all my reviews:
  • Freeman Bare Foot Peppermint + Plum Foot Scrub

    This is the most effective AND least expensive foot scrub I have used! That's all that needs to be said about it, really. Don't waste your money on anything else.

  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    Not at all worth it

    I didnt like this razor at all. There's too much material surrounding the blades on the sides (almost 1/4-inch per side), so you end up thinking you've shaved spots that have really just been run over with plastic. It also makes it hard to reach certain spots, especially in the bikini area. This results in a lot of going ba...ck to re-do areas that you thought you'd covered, and a major waste of time in the shower. For the price, this is a huge disappointment. I find it hard to believe that the same brand that came up with one of the best razors for men, the Fusion (get it, ladies!), has put out this sub-par offering for women.

  • Revlon Perfect Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron

    I started using this curling iron exactly 7 days ago, and it was trouble from the beginning. The second time I went to turn it on, I had to hit the button 3 times to get the "on" light to light up. This morning, ten minutes after turning it on, I noticed it was barely warm - not hot. So, I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and tried to turn it on again. Nothing. No matter how many times I pushed that "on" button, the little red light would not come on. This curling iron has died after 7 days. I've used many curling irons over the years and have never had one stop working like this (usually it's the lever that gives out after over a year of daily use). Sadly, I don't have the receipt or packaging, so I had to run out and pick up a thirteen-dollar replacement - and you can bet I didn't go with Revlon.

  • Revlon Nail Enamel
    2.0

    Revlon Nail Enamel

    Not Good Enough

    I've bought this in a few colors on really good sales, but I find that it tends to chip off too quickly - even with a great, trusted topcoat. The drying time is slightly longer than I'd like, especially when multiple coats are needed for good-looking coverage. In addition, the polish has a tendency to thicken in the bottle after a month or two, which makes it pretty much unusable. It's cheap, but I've found cheap polishes that perform better than this - and a big name like Revlon should be able to do better!

  • Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eyeshadow

    Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eyeshadow

    If only it came in more shades!

    I bought this shadow in Rich Sable (dark brown), and I absolutely love it. It applies evenly, is heavily pigmented, and dosn't fade throughout the day. I hope Revlon will expand the line, as it only comes in 6 or 7 shades right now. This is a wonderful shadow for a low price!

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

    This is a fairly thick lipgloss with lots of shine and above-average staying power. I like the sponge-tip wand applicator, as opposed to a brush. It comes in mostly pink shades, but my favorite is Nude Lustre.

  • Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Créme
    7.0

    Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Créme

    Effective, but pricey and smelly

    This cream really leaves hair soft and shiny, as promised. I like that fact that it isn't drying like silicone-based shine-enhancers. What I don't like about this is the smell. It's not a strong bad smell, but every now and then, while wearing it, I'd get a slight whiff of it in my hair. It just wasn't good - sort of like a faint smell of sour milk mixed with bleach. I take away 2 stars for the scent and 1 star for the high price.

  • Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel
    1.0

    Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

    Needs too many coats

    I've tried this nailpolish in many colors (bought a bunch at once), and I hate it. Too many coats are needed for full color. The shades I bought didn't look sheer and weren't what I'd consider to be light colors, but every single one went on completely see-through. It took three coats of the polish to get even coverage, and I had to wait more than 20 minutes between coats. Additionally, the brush in the polish is too skinny, which is a pain. I don't recommend this at all, no matter how cheap it is.

  • Dove VisibleCare Toning Creme Body Wash

    This is a really nice, highly moisturizing body wash. It lathers like crazy (a little goes a long way), and I felt like it definitely left my skin feeling softer than usual after a week of use. As far as toning effects, I can't say for certain that there have been any, but it's a possibility - no miracles, but maybe a slight difference. It has a clean scent that's neither overwhelmingly feminine nor masculine, and not at all too "perfumey". I'd absolutely purchase this product again.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    I found this to be a really good mascara. It made my lashes MUCH thicker, and still did a good job of separating them. It wore well without flaking. The brush is huge, but not difficult to maneuver. I do reccommend this, and I'll buy it again.
