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

    I squeeze some of this of a puff and scrub for a minute or two on my heels and any food rough spots. The result is perfectly smooth skin. It's very gritty so I wouldn't recommend using it with you bare hands.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 20

    The lotion is white and does a poor job of moisturizing. Color tends to be on the orange side.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 20

    I got a little color with this, but I'd been in the Arctic for a month which means my skin had nowhere to go but darker. I didn't care for the smell and it just doesn't cut it as a facial lotion.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Intensive Serum

    I usually use Roc for my retinol but decided to switch it up. The ingredients are solid, it absorbs nicely, travels well, and is cheap. The problem? Made my skin burn after about a month. While my skin isn't normally sensitive, it was sensitive to this, so I'll be switching back to Roc.

  • Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar for Acne-Prone Skin

    It's inexpensive and it won't explode in your luggage. I'm not a huge fan of bar soaps as I see them as bacteria breeding grounds. It's a bit drying, but it keeps my skin from freaking out when I travel. When I'm ready to go home, I can just toss it. I wouldn't use this as my regular cleanser at home for the above reasons but it's fine for a week or so.

  • Canyon Ranch Your Transformation Balance Light-Weight Moisture

    I got this as a full size sample from Dermstore, which usually means no one is buying it. It doesn't brighten, balance, or firm. I've used Olay products that I liked better. Granted, it didn't leave my skin sticky, greasy, or dry, but it certainly didn't live up to its claims. The listed price for this puppy at Nordstroms is $75! Really! Just because a product is spa based doesn't mean it's good. Save your money.

  • Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Deep Clean Gel

    This is a solid face wash. It removes oil without over-drying and it's reasonably priced. Did it brighten my skin? No. Did it improve my skin's circulation with the mystical properties of Horse Chestnut? Uh, no. Quite frankly, when I see catch phrases like "botanics," I think "marketing ploy." Besides, Horse Chestnut is pretty low on the ingredient list to do much good. Because it didn't live up to its brightening claim, I won't give it above a 7, but it you're looking for a simple non-drying cleanser, then this should work for your oily skin.

  • Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle

    Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle

    A good alternative to waxing

    I HATE getting waxes: it's expensive, time consuming, and painful. This trimmer is easy to use, cheap, and pain free. This was my first trimmer and I love it! I don't need to worry about replacement blades and it has 3 trimming lengths. It's also great for pre-waxing as it can trim your bits down to a good length if it's been a long time since your last wax. If you're on the fense about trimmers, give this one a try.

  • Essie Nail Polish
    7.0

    Essie Nail Polish

    Respectable

    I finally tried Essie after hearing all the hype about it. While there are a LOT of colors and the formula made application super easy, I find that it chips quicker than OPI. Granted, I didn't use a clear top coat, so maybe that would'be made a difference. Like OPI, it's pricey. If you find a color you like, I'd say Essie is worth a try, but it doesn't deserve its hyped reputation.

  • RoC RETINOL CORREXION Deep Wrinkle Serum
    7.0

    RoC RETINOL CORREXION Deep Wrinkle Serum

    An ounce of prevention....

    First off, RoC's retinol like antioxidants are preventative measures. I'm always skeptical when people say that it fixed their wrinkles since anti-oxidants, retinol in particular, salvage what you have. That being said, I can't go into it's anti-aging abilities for a few more years now. What I can tell you is that this is not an overly harsh retinoid. If you're new to retinol, I recommend starting every other day and build up. Use it at night. I keep using this brand as it is highly touted by both magazines and estheticians I've visited, so I'm staking some trust in its reputation. Additionally, this product is significantly cheaper than going to a dermatologist and purchasing an RX grade retinol. If you're looking at just starting out on retinols, I recommend giving it a shot.
