Here are all my reviews:
  • Burt's Bees Lemon Poppy Seed Facial Cleanser

    This cleanser smells excellent. Otherwise, it's worthless. It's difficult to spread around your face because it's so waxy and after thorough rinsing a waxy, oily residue is left on the skin. Cleansing? No. Maybe this is minutely helpful if you have really dry skin.

  • Pantene Pro-V Normal-Thick Hair Solutions Volume Shampoo

    This smells just clean, like all Pantene products do. And like all other Pantene products, it's easy to find and inexpensive. It definitely gives my hair more volume at the roots. Even now as I'm reaching the end of the bottle, I can see a difference in my hair when I use another shampoo. If you're looking for an increase in body and not just volume, however, this really won't do it for you.

  • Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips Legs and Body

    If you want great results, you need to take the time to struggle with a spatula and warm wax. For "good enough" results, these are fine. I've only used these on the bikini line (apparently another kind is formulated for that, of which I was unaware). I would cut them into four pieces before warming, peeling apart, and applying. I was able to reuse each strip about twice, which is nice. Skin was a little irritated immediately after but fades within hours. They don't get every last hair, but for the price these really aren't too bad. I might keep them around for quick wax jobs, in those rare, no-time-pool-party-happening-tomorrow emergency situations that I assume happen sometimes.

  • Sally Hansen Lavender Spa Body Wax Hair Removal Kit

    I was excited to use this product. It has a nice smell, includes post-wax oil, strips, several spatulas, and is microwavable. That said, it is a HORRIBLE wax. If it gets on anything, even your skin (yes), good luck getting it off. Even with lots of oil and picking, some wax was still stuck to my body for a few days. Gross. Although it did get rid of the hair well, it came at a cost. My skin was irritated and horribly bruised for a week. I know bruising from waxing isn't unheard of, but this product is the only one that's caused me to bruise. I think this product is no longer sold, but if you ever come across it, just run away!

  • Nair  Salon Divine Body Wax Kit

    Nair Salon Divine Body Wax Kit

    A good deal for hard wax

    Generally, I like this wax. It's a hard wax so it's used without strips and is less painful than traditional warm waxes. As a convenience factor, it's microwavable. It has to be cleaned up with oil but it cleans fairly easily. As far as performance, it does get most of the hairs but I've found I often have to go back over some areas, and even then I'll have to tweeze some stragglers after (used on bikini line, so it's fairly good at removing coarse hair). The kit only comes with one spatula that is wooden, so you'll definitely have to invest in more. There's way more wax than just one use (a good thing, of course!). As for the "Sensual Orchid" scent, I don't like it but it's not bad enough to stop me from using. I will probably try other wax kits after this.

  • St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

    Great moisturizer! I generally have oily skin. I can use this moisturizer through summer and winter without my face getting greasy, developing acne, or drying out. I love that it has a very light feel and fresh scent. You also get a HUGE tub for not much money. I'm in my 20s and only have minimal fine lines. I do think this plumps them out, which could just be due to how hydrating it is.

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    I bought this because it has great reviews and isn't overpriced. I only used it for two days before throwing it out. Less than extraordinary. My lashes weren't longer, thicker, better defined, anything. I might as well have not worn mascara at all. If you're looking for a decent, inexpensive mascara, try Neutrogena Healthy Volume. It is worlds better.

  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    The search continues...

    There are plenty of good things about this cleanser. It doesn't strip your skin, it's simple, it is supposed to help balance your skin. I was excited to see if this made the difference for my skin, but no. I have fairly oily skin and mild acne, usually under control that flares up with hormones, but this cleanser did nothing to alleviate it. Also, after several weeks of use, I noticed I have developed a lot of blackheads on my nose and chin. I have moved on.

  • Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

    I have been using this product for several months and cannot say for certain whether or not it has done anything for my hair. I blow dry almost every day and my hair isn't especially damaged, but I didn't notice any change in my hair when I started using this. It's inexpensive, though, and hasn't negatively affected my hair, so I still think it's worth a try. I probably will not repurchase.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    Buy this primer! My eyelids are incredibly oily and before this my eyeshadow would always wear off by noon. When I use this primer, my eyeshadow lasts until I take it off at night. I was surprised to say the least. Now I never put on eye makeup without this as a base!
