Olay BODY quench BODY LOTION deep moisture with cocoa butter, jojoba & vitamin B3
Okay, they way Olay has there lotion labled and the way Total Beauty has it labled got me confused but I decided I'd go with this one. The title of my review has written on it everything written on my package of lotion so you know what lotion I'm talking about here. So, this lotion has glitter in it, and they don't tell you that anywhere on the packaging, so I'm kinda upset that Olay didn't feel the need to inform people of that, also, this lotion doesn't moisturize anywhere near as much as Nature's Gate or Avalon Oragnics lotion. I'm pretty sure some Vaseline brand lotion I've used before moisturized better than this did, so I'm a bit dissppointed, especially since this lotion wasn't so cheap. I do like the glitter myself, but they needed to tell you on the bottle. So yeah, the one good thing about this lotion to me would be the glitter and the scent does kinda smell good. Other than that, I'm not actually impressed.

Okay, this product is great if you have oily skin and want a loong lasting nice pure matte foundation. This is it! It last a good long time, is matte and is perfect for the summer time(when my face is oily) and is easy to put in your purse! Has a mirror in it too, and a sponge for applictaion! ^_^ I am happy with it but the thing is, it doesn't come in enough shades. It's good for me in the spring and when summer just hits but soon enough I get tanned/darker and can't wear it anymore. I'm a bit offended by this, what are the black girls supposed to wear? There are lots of shades for caucasions, but only 2 or 3 for the woman of color and they don't even have ebony? Now I can't even blend colors. =O Well, this product is good and for those that can wea it(shade wise) go for it! But Neutrogena, I'm dissappointed in you. I think they have come out with some new line of liquid foundation. I don't know if that has more colors or what, but hey, add some more color to these Neutrogena!

L'Oreal Paris Extra Volume Collagen Waterproof Mascara
This stuff is really waterproof! No raccoon eyes at all! The crazy thing is even when i'm washing my face at the sink it doesn't start to come off under my eyes. Facewash and water isn't enough to take this stuff come off. So this is like my favorite waterproof mascara now! =) This mascara is a little tricky to apply though, I admit. I'm used to twirling my brush while applying my mascara to get more mascara on my eyelashes and make it thicker, but with this just hold it and brush. NO TWIRLING. So once you figure it out its great. I think that the bottle is a tad too small ( more product please) and I think it does take a bit too many strokes to get the desired thickness but I'm happy with it. Definitely my go to mascara this summer though, especially for swimming. =)

Garnier The Ultimate Cleanser 3-Way Clean
Garnier - The Ultimate Cleanser - 3-Way Clean - Use 3 different ways - Oil-free Okay, I think that they have renamed this product what I wrote above. ^ This cleanser is amazing! I really am not a fan of Garnier Fructis shampoos, conditioners or styling products, but my sister is. So, I ran out of my Neutrogena and she let me try this, and I fell in love with it! <3 This product is aHmazing! It really does work as a "Daily Cleanser", "Exfoliating Scrub" and "Purifying Mask". My sister has oily, sensitive skin and I have combination skin, and the fact that this works on the both of us (her especially) is really awesome! ^_^ This also smells great! I reccommend this for all skin types. Makes taking care of your skin a breeze.

Clean & Clear is improving!
Okay, so I was first drawn to this product for it's packaging, I'm a sucker for cute colors, packages and labels! So Clean & Clear doesn't usually have fun colored citrus scented cleansers, face lotions and etc... And when I was checking the ingredient list lots of the ingredients in this were ingredients I've seen in brands like Neutrogena, wich I trust and use, so I went ahead and bought it! Now, for a normal cleanser, like just a 'wash your face in the morning' kind of cleanser that doesn't claim to do anything but CLEAN and is oil-free, I think it's great! I'm a teenager and I don't have bad acne, little to none. Maybe 2 zits on my face at a time, no more, and sometimes not even that. So I usually pick up some sort of Neutrogena Acne Wash just to help ward off pimples just in case, but since my acne isn't bad at all, I decided I'd go for a regular cleanser. It reminds me of any good Neutrogena cleanser but with more product in the package and a cheaper price! I would definitely buy this product again! I'm not sure if it really wakes me up in the morning, because I think washing your face in the morning kinda helps wake you up no matter what cleanser your using, but I like it! ^_^ The morning GLOW moisturizer they have is great too!

Great, but is it giving me zits?
I absolutely love this scrub! It makes my skin soo clear and so clean! *hugs the scrub* OMG, and it smells good! I washed my face with this once, and I wanted to make sure my face was clean so I repeated and did it again, well I didn't need to, when I was cleaning my face the second time my face felt sooo clean and smooth, it was amazing! After I rinsed I realized just how much of a good deep cleaning scrub it was and that I didn't need to re wash at all! I was very impressed! It definitely exfoliates! Now, people keep on complaining of dry skin, my answer to this is LOTION! That's what toners and lotions are for. I cleanse my face or scrub it in the morning and follow up with a face lotion and I'm good. No weird dryness. Your face will feel dry afterwards, since it's an Acne wash, how else will it clear up your oily skin, the oils on your skin are what give you gross acne, and the product is trying to dry it up and clear it. I think it works great! bought this and ofcourse it's the summer time, so it's hard for me to determine if it's giving me zits or not, but either way, I highly doubt it's doing that. I will be buying this again and again!

Herbal Essence Set Me Up gel is better.
This gel isn't bad but Herbal Essence Set Me Up Maximum Hold gel is better. The only reason I bought this was because all of the Herbal Essence gel was gone at the grocerey store. I could see myself buying this again in one of these cases but I think I want to try some other gels as well. In case Herbal Essence is all out and I need to use something else I want to have an alternative that I also like. This is better than Pantene's gels but I just don't know how good it is. I'll have to try other gels. I have curly hair and I put gel in my hair when it's wet and let it air dry. It didn't make my hair as shiny as i would have like and my curls were more separated and thinner. Just wasn't a fan of this look.

This gel encouraged my hair to curl more but actually left my hair frizzy and not silky feeling. I used it in my curly hair, put it in my wet hair and let it air dry, didn't work as well as drug store products, dissappointed.

Better than I thought it would be!
This lotion really surprised me! It is very moisturizing and gives your skin a nice shine. ^_^ My skin felt sooo nice after I used this immediately after getting out of the shower. My skin was so soft, velvety and smooth..mmm I love this stuff! I got the 'PS I love You' scent which I'm not a fan of but the lotion works great! I will be purchasing this in Japanese Cherry Blossom next time. It's not worth its price, but Bath & Body Works offers different scents as well as a quality lotion, Sure you you could find a lotion that is just as good at your drug store but you won't have options as far as scent. I'll be purchasing this again and again!

This stuff is amazing, especially for the price! It is probobly tied with Herbal Essence Set Me Up gel for me. My two faves! This gel moisturizes my curls, makes them super shiny and yes actually BOUNCY like it says, Some gels seperate my curls more and give me tiny little curls all over my head but with this one larger sections of hair lock together and curl! It looks more natural than Herbal Essence I think but I still love Herbal Essence. This has a light smell and is just awesome. I used this after going swimming(CHLORINE=weeks to wash out and damaging to hair) and I washed my hair with TRESemme moisture rich shampoo and conditioner then put this in my hair and my curls looked amazing! I love this product! I'd also like to add I'm south asian and my curls are loose and wavy. Sometimes I have some spiral at the ends.
