  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock SPF 45

    Neutrogena products and I usually don't mix but I adore this sunblock. It is the first sunblock I have found that not only doesn't break my skin out but isn't greasy. I have tried many sunblocks throughout the years and even those labeled "oil free" or "non greasy" or "non slip" always leave a greasy film on the skin that attracts dirt and makes it gross to reapply. This has no shine at all and you can reapply without looking like you were dumped in crisco or that you have a bunch of gunk on your face. Even my boyfriend likes it. He often avoids using sunblock because it makes his hands greasy which is problematic because he rock climbs. This allows him to use sunblock with no slippery hands. And it also smells great. I hate the smell of most sunblocks but this smells good and clean. My only complaint is the price but I think it's well worth it. Highly recommend!!

    Laura Mercier Secret Finish Mattifying

    Works really well but be careful if you're acne prone

    This worked soooo well at making my skin matte. The instant you apply it, there is no shine and it lasts longer than anything I have ever used. Great to use on days you are having your picture taken. But....be careful if you have acne prone skin. It does not say on the box that it is noncomedogenic however it does say this on their website. I chose this product because the lady at sephora said she never broke out when using it and she had very acne prone skin. I noticed that I usually developed at least 1 large cyst on a cheek a day or two after using this. Nothing else changed in my routine so I believe it was caused by this. I definitely think this is worth a try if you have really oily/shiny skin but if it makes you break out, return it.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Truth Cream Eyeliner

    I bought this product quite a while ago and still have a ton left in the pot so you definitely get a good bang for your buck. The color (I went with standard black) is nice and true to what it appeared when I purchased it. The little brush makes it easy to get a good line on the top lid however it doesn't work well at all for lining the bottom inner rim and can actually be quite irritating to the skin there. I tend to have oily eyelids as the day goes on which often made this liner all but disappear so perhaps someone with drier skin may find that it lasts longer. Overall I wouldn't purchase again because I want something that will last all day but if you have drier skin, it might be worth a try.

  • Dove Style + Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse

    I agree with other reviews that it can seem heavy and greasy at first when you apply it to wet hair however if you allow your hair to fully dry it is not crunchy at all and gives good body to the hair. The one downside I noticed is that if you have very frizzy hair, it might not control all of it but overall it worked well for me. One word of advice though: use a small amount to start. It may not seem like a lot, especially if you are used to using other brands of mousse, but it can quickly become too much. Also the smell is somewhat chemical but once it dries there is very little smell, if any.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Mega Plush Waterproof Mascara

    I like this mascara overall. It makes eyelashes look more voluminous but sometimes can be a little clumpy. My lashes don't feel stiff though which is a plus. Worth a try.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Waterproof Mascara

    I have never understood why magazines love this mascara so much. It's very clumpy and makes lashes look stuck together and spidery. Yuck!

    Sephora 4-Step Buffer

    Great product

    This works really well, especially for girls who have ridges in their nails like me. Makes them look really healthy and shiny. One word of caution: don't use the step 1 side too much or you will thin out the nail too much which will cause breakage.

  • Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

    I really wanted this to work but after just a few days of using this i actually developed open areas on my gums which has never happened before, even with whitestrips. Would not recommend.

  • Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

    This is such a great product and it's way cheaper than the Clarisonic version. I would not recommend using it everyday though as it can start to irritate. A few times a week is plenty.

  • Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Combination/Oily

    I keep trying new moisturizers but always find myself coming back to this. It's lightweight, won't cause breakouts, good price. My only real gripe is that it's only spf 15.
