Here are all my reviews:
  • PMD Personal Microderm

    Received one of these to review and was so excited to try it. My skin has been changing as I get older, I think hormonal changes have done me in. Dry scaly patches and such, so I was very curious if these treatments would help. I used it the very next day after I received it with the mildest tip. As recommended I washed and let my skin dry before using. I wondered if my face would react to the abrasion, but it didn't. I used witch hazel as a tonic, and yes to blueberries night cream. The next day, my skin felt so smooth and soft and like truly clean! The next treatment a week later I used the tip that was a little stronger because I was impatient to wait another week. This time I had a couple of flare ups but I probably stepped up too soon. I'm interested to see how my skin responds after 6 months. I think it makes a real difference, and will continue to use it. Tips need to be replaced after 4 uses I think. Overall I'm really happy with and hope to check in after a few months.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Volume Root Lifting Spray

    Okay so...hello! You need this! It's great! Gives good lift/volume wherever I spray it, not greasy or heavy. I'm hooked! I'm tossing my 'big hair' mousse, this worked better than that!!!

  • Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo

    Scent is strong but temporary, makes my hair feel less slick which is what I want in a dry Shampoo. Definitely less noticeable on my dark hair than other types I've tried. Will keep some around for emergencies.

  • Aveeno Positively Ageless Correcting Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

    Not really a fan. First off it was much too white on me. Second, i didn't find it that soothing at all. I expected it to feel good going on and it was just eh for me. But, i passed it on to a friend, we'll see what she says.

  • Wella Brilliance Conditioner

    Overall this product seemed innopvative and like a fun new product...I wanted to love it...I don't. My hair was left feeling grasy and heavy.

  • Wella Brilliance Shampoo

    I was meant to write by review by the 19th, so this is a little late...but I went off on a vacation soon after receiving my product and took my Wella Brilliance Shampoo with me! So here I am... Big mistake. At first at home, I thought I liked the product because it left my hair feeling so smooth...but...little did I realize. The heavy & quickly greasy feeling hair I mistakenly blamed on running around prepping for my trip, was not just because it was warm and I was sweaty. Nope that wasn't it. I went away to the most beautiful fall crisp cool weather on my trip...and still with the heavy hair. Was I imagining it? I stumbled on another reviewer who had the same experience and realized I wasn't the only one. Then I came to post my review on Total Beauty and see others commenting similarly. So, it's not just me and my hair, it's the product! As my trip wore on I couldn't wait to get home to different shampoo...my thick coarse hair was so heavy it felt like I had a ton of product in it every day. Normally I shampoo every other day, but I was so anxious to feel clean again I shampooed every morning! I never have to do that! It's no wonder I was frustated with my hair every day...after an hour or two I'd just look limp & greasy...I don't reccomend this product at all. I wanted to like it...it sure sounded interesting but no dice....look elsewhere. Sorry Wella this was a #shampooFail

    mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder

    disregard the color samples you see here...

    they all look pink...what's up with that...so not the way they are. I LOVE this stuff! Works well without being cakey...I use it to set my oily eyelids and along the T-zone. Don't know what else to say, works great! Be aware that this product is not designed for coverage; merely as a light setting powder that also absorbs that T-zone shine! For coverage try Powder Buff

    Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay Beauty

    No more dried out hands!

    This stuff is awesome! I've used for 5 days now, I was worried about it at first because I thought maybe there would be residue on the dishes. But no, I found it worked as well as my regular dawn. With winter coming on I'm happy to have a moisturizing dish soap at hand! I tried the Tropical Shea Butter Scent and loved how mild it was. The chemical sensitivities in my house proclude any strong smells. This was gentle and pleasant. I highly reccomend and will buy this soap in future.

    Sebastian Microweb Fiber

    This stuff is amazing!

    I used this every time I styled my hair. It's a little unusual at first since it is very 'webby' when it dispenses. It's white and kind of gooey, you only need a little bit. I was worried my hands would be glued together but they were not. There's a tiny little plug that came on it and I have kept using it thinking it would avoid clogging the nozzle. Not sure if that is a real issue or not but so far no problems. I have shoulder length cut brown/black hair with lots of layers that is shorter in the back and 'under cut'. This stuff really makes my cut stand out! After blow-drying I applied a bit to my hand, and rubbed my palms together to 'warm' it then I quickly scrunched or finger combed or twisted my hair. I looked like I had just stepped out of a salon! Not greasy or hard. Awesome stuff!

  • Giorgio Armani Armani Code for Women Eau De Parfum

    I do not like overwhelming scents. My husband and I are allergic to so many perfumes it becomes a real challenge to find one I can wear and we both tolerate and love it. That being said I was anxious to get my hand on a sample since I have to wear it for awhile to know the affects. This is just beautiful. My husband happens to also tolerate and we both liked the black code for men. This is the perfect compliment to his. It's subtle, nothing about it overpowers. I have trouble describing the scent: I want to say that it's warm with a slight muskiness to it, and a hint of spice. I'm reminded of all the things I love: vanilla, ginger, roses without smelling those things per se. In other words I wouldn't say it smells like that but it just reminds me of all the good scents I love. I don't pick out "floral" in it...makes no sense I guess...just know what it's not: NOT overly sweet, NOT overly floral, NOT overly anything. just yummy comforting goodness! Try it!
