    NP Set Body Polish

    Not as great as the body wash

    I liked the Body Wash version of this product so much that I decided to get its body polish for my sister to try out. She said it was okay. My sister is quite picky. If the product isn't just about perfect, she quickly rights it off. Her main complaint was that she didn't feel as clean as she's like after using this product. Her personal choice is Neutrogena body scrubs, although she did agree that the fragrance of this body polish is much nicer than her Neutrogena. She also felt that it left a bit of a film on her skin, which was both good in a way (lingering fragrance) and bad (later resulting in a mild itch.) She's going to give it to her friend to see if a less picky person might like it.

    NP Set Body Wash

    Smells wonderful

    This body wash smells soooo good! It's a great summertime fragrance that lingers for a good while on your skin after you shower. It's not a super quick rinse and it does leave a bit of a residue on your shower walls and tub I've notices, although I haven't noticed any funky residue on my skin. It moisturizes okay, but my skin doesn't need a whole lot of moisturizing. But it might be an issue for someone who's looking for a super moisturizing body wash. It is a bit on the pricey side, if you're used to using a more common brand like Suave (which also works great.) But the winning point for this body wash is certainly it's lovely fragrance.

  • REN Clean Bio Active Skincare Ren Max Moisture Concentrate

    I'm trying to be a good influence on my mom for once and so I'm working hard to get her into a good skin routine. At the heart of this effort is getting her to moisturize daily with the right product. My mom is 60 something and she has really dry sensitive skin. So a cream that offers maximum moisture while being non-irritating on sensitive skin was a must. A coworker recommended this product. I've heard good things about Ren products in general so I figured I have her try it out. Well she absolutely loves it! She said this is the only cream she will use religiously on a daily basis. She said that already, not only is she seeing improvement in elasticity in her skin, but she's noticing that the sagging skin is starting to look a tad bit tighter. She did say that this cream, although great for sensitive skin, is a bit on the "strong" side. By that she meant that if you apply too much, you'll end up with a sticky face (which she hates by the way.) But even if she over-applies, she said that it does absorb completely in about 10 minutes. But still, a little bit goes a long way. Did I mention in didn't irritate her sensitive skin? Highly recommended.

  • DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Juiced

    I really liked the regular "green" DKNY Be Delicious fragrance that came out first. It was very appropriate for late Spring and Summer time with its fresh, crisp scent (careful not to go overboard though.) So I was so curious how the "Fresh Blossom" variation would measure up. I just got this as a present and I love it! It's every bit as clean and crisp as the original, but it is a bit more feminine with floral hint, and a bit milder too – not as citrusy. Now, I think I like the new "pink" version better than the original. I like all the phases of this fragrance as well. Some perfumes I've tried smell awesome when first applied, but after a few hours, start smelling weird. Not this one. I would definitely recommend this perfume to anyone looking for a feminine fresh scent.

  • Olay Luscious Orchid Moisturizing Body Wash

    I got this for my mom the other day because I know she likes the other Olay body washes. She used this a couple of times and likes it okay, but says she still prefers her Olay Age Defying body wash the best. While this body wash is still luxurious feeling, creamy and lathers nice and quick, she complained that it didn't seem to clean as well as her favorite. But she did like the fragrance of the Luscious Embrace in Crushed Orchid Extract better. Something else that my mother and I have in common is that we prefer quick rinsing body washes, and apparently, this body wash doesn't rinse so quickly.

  • Hard Candy Fox in a Box Bronzing Duos & Blushing Quads

    I've been looking for a new blush to replace my two-year old lancome sample hand-me-down from my sister for a while. I'm not the biggest lancome fan, so the prospect of replacing my blush was quite appealing when another friend of mine get me this Hard Candy combo blush. I've used combo blushes before and didn't really think of it as anything too special. I always wondered, why not mix all the colors together into a single palette and call it a day. If you brush happens to go over one particular color more than another, well, then you end up with orange cheeks instead of peachy-burns-raspberry cheeks. Too confusing. But hey, I decided to still give it a shot anyway. Well, same problem. I just prefer to have one single palette than four next to each other. But one good thing about this Hard Candy blush was that it's highly pigmented and the power is applied very finely and smoothly to your face. I'm definitely up for drying a single palette Hard Candy blush now.

  • One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser

    A coworker suggested I try this product as an all-around cleanser. She uses it as a shampoo even! So far I've used it as a hand soap and I totally love it! Four things I does that I'm always looking for in a soap are a) it cleans your skin really well, b) it does so without drying out your skin, c) It's not tested on animals (cruelty free), and d) It's a vegan product (no animal byproducts used in the ingredients). Did I mention it smells really nice too? Not overly perfumed, but a nice gentle, clean scent. It has a really cute label design as well that looks great on my bathroom counter. No need to empty the container into my liquid soap pump.

    Phyto Phytolium 4

    So far, okay results

    I got this product for my mom who's been experiencing hair thinning and loss for the past year due to hormone changes. She's always had lustrous, gorgeous hair. So seeing her losing her hair is sad to say the least. She's been using this product for a couple of weeks now, and while it's way to early to say whether it's helping her by stopping hair loss, she has noticed that her hair seems healthier. One thing for sure though; when she brushes her hair, she's noticing less hair in her brush. Because of this, she's optimistic about its long term results. The other things she likes about this product are that when she wears it after taking a shower, it doesn't feel greasy on her scalp like some other products she's used in the past. She loves this fact. And she said it doesn't smell nasty either. So even though it comes with a hefty price tag, I would recommend this product to anyone experiencing hair loss or hair thinning.

  • Bump & Blemish Lavender Formula

    Bump & Blemish Lavender Formula

    Works pretty well for razor burns

    My sister and I are really prone to razor burns. No matter what we try, we always end up with them. So when I was recommended this product by a coworker, I figured what do I have to lose. While this product is predominantly advertised for ingrown hairs, I found it to be very soothing for my razor burns. At first, there is a quick sting! But that dulls after about 10 seconds leaving a somewhat numbing feeling, or maybe it's psychological, I don't know. But at any case, I found that after I use this stuff, my skin feels a lot smoother, less red and irritated than it would without its use. Haven't noticed it do anything miraculous with bumps yet, but given its current results, I'm definitely up for trying it out a few times to see what other good things happen over time.

  • Victoria's Secret Hypergloss Eye Shimmer

    I got this eyeshadow in a sample size and my friend and I used it for the first time last weekend before going out to a party. Wow, it looked amazing. I was so surprised that VS would create such a nice cosmetic product. The instructions say that you can wear it over your own shadow, and after a moment of hesitation and skepticism, we gave it a shot. Of course we didn't rub it on, but it actually didn't disturb our already-applied shadow at all. Instead it created a really attractive shimmery gloss over our lid. And don't worry, it's not like smearing olive oil over your lids or anything. It's the consistency of a cream, but goes on totally effortlessly and almost weightlessly. Looks really professional too, just don't go overboard with it, like anything else.
