Great for on a bad hair day!
Some days I wake up late for work, have no time, and humidity seems like it's at 99%. That's when I break this thing out. It gives me natural looking waves, and because I can put a ton of hair in each clamp, my whole head can be done in 10 minutes (as opposed to my curling iron which would seriously take me nearly an hour). The clamp is huge and if you purposely grab random sections and go on different angles you can 1) get done quickly and 2) get a natural day at the beach look. Awesome, easy, and not too expensive. Definitely recommended.

Best Lip Stain I've Tried
I was pretty impressed with this stain- I've tried a few others and never been completely satisfied, they've been pretty for the first five minutes and then REALLY dried out and faded. I got this in Ruby, a bright, smooth, lasting red that stays on most of the day. My favorite thing about this is that as opposed to red lipsticks that I've tried several times, this fades evenly. Rather than leaving me with a bright red lip line around a completely empty center, this stain looks the same all over my lips as the day wears on. For $4 you definitely can not go wrong, and I will be repurchasing soon.

This product smells exactly like and has the same consistency as sunblock. It has SPF 15, which is nice, but if I wanted just a sunblock, I would buy that. It has a nice shimmer, which would be great except for the fact that I have a lot of unevenness and scars, and I was hoping that by using this reflective formula I would be able to maybe wear less concealer or foundation. This didn't happen, which means I still have to wear concealer and foundation in addition to this thick, shimmery, heavily-scented lotion. I don't know what it is, but some days I actually feel dirty from this formula. I had really high hopes, and while it's not the worst thing I've ever used, it's definitely only something I put on when I'm out of everything else. Would not repurchase.

These are a can't miss if you find them on sale (which they frequently are). They come in really fragrent scents, and aren't too drying which is rare with most other anti-bacterial soaps. Sometimes I feel like the formula is a little too thick- I really need to consciously make sure all the product has been completely washed off (one time it wasn't and I touched my eye. Wow. Painful). Really though, there's no other brand with better scents or a bigger selection. Will continue to repurchase. And wash off thoroughly.

I have terrible acne prone skin so my entire life I went for titles like 'oil free' and 'clarifying'- Clean & Clean, Neutrogena, Aveeno, Proactive, these products were never really moisturizing enough and I'd need to put on 10 coats of lotion, ultimately defeating the purpose. I tried the smallest sample of this and my entire face looked moisturized and healthy (NOT greasy). Though this isn't oil free, I think the fact that I barely have to put any on and I'm set for the day ultimately leaves me with healthier skin. I surprisingly haven't broken out from this at all, and it hydrated better than anything I've ever tried.

Doesn't clear, but doesn't clog
I think the original scrubbing body wash works a thousand times better, but it leaves me with a medicinal smell. Other washes I have are cream based and tend to break me out. This is somewhere inbetween. It smells good, and leaves me feeling clean, but sometimes in the summer I need to break out the more heavy duty original. It's ok if you have mild acne, I've repurchased it a few times, but if you don't mind the smell of the original, that's definitely the way to go.

Two coloricon trios came in a value pack box I picked up at the drugstore for $9. I normally don't buy Wet n Wild products, but I'm so glad I picked this up. Both trios (black/white/silver and brown/pink/beige) gave me silky, pigmented colors! I think a lot of multi-packs tend to have only a couple of actually wearable shades, but all of these were beautiful! They blended really well. I added a tiny bit of gold (from urban decay) to the black palette and I loved it even more. The Wet n Wild was really impressive quality, definitely up to par with the Urban Decay I added it to. I'm going to buy every palette they offer!

Buy Falsies Flared Instead
I bought this in the waterproof forumula and I was pretty disappointed. It didn't run which was good, but it also didn't do much else. My lashes didn't look "false" in any way, but this also didn't lengthen or add much volume. I thought that the formula was a little wet for my liking, giving me some tiny spots under my eye and on my lid from blinking, and after a few hours my lashes were pretty stuck together. Lastly, I didn't think this was a particularly dark black, especially after going in the water. I bought the Flared version of this shorty after, and I really recommend it. All the negatives from this mascara and eliminated in the Flared version.

I grabbed this blush (mulled wine) out of my mom's makeup bag. Normally I use nars or a gel blush but I was in a rush and this was convenient. This super dark, bright blush would never normally be a color I'd choose, but the tinest, lightest dab gave me absolutely beautiful bright, natural color. I went out and bought it immediately. I've never used such a pigmented blush, it makes me look awake and healthy. I've fallen in love with this amazing, (and cheap!) product!

I ran out of shampoo and conditioner and totally bought this on a whim because BJ's was selling both of them together in giant bottles for a total of $5. I figured I'd try it on my very damaged hair. It smells nice and my hair is definitely very conditioned. The first time I used it, I thought it left my hair pretty greasy. When I tried it the next night, I used slightly less and rinsed out extra long. That's apparently the secret to this shampoo. Now my hair is moisturized, not greasy, and very soft. Especially if you buy from BJ's or Costco, there's no way you can beat the price and results.
