  • Burt's Bees Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum

    The product itself smells terrible, and it does not absorb well into the skin. It leaves your skin feeling very greasy. I did not notice a difference in my skin. I tried using it on other parts of my body, but it did not hydrate well and ended up throwing it away. I am usually a Burts Bees fanatic, but this simply does not work- I was very disappointed.

  • Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

    I've always read good things about this product and wanted to try it. If you travel internationally, you can buy it duty-free to save money, or shop online for deals. It works wonders. First, it smells great, it's a floral but not overwhelming scent. It glides on smoothly and instantly makes me look rested and gives my face a lift. It works great on my sleep deprived, stressed and dry patches of skin. I suggest not using too much product, or else your skin may feel greasy, and you don't need a lot of product for it to work. My foundation goes on great afterwards, but I've also worn it alone and my skin still looks great.

  • Chanel Chance Eau Tendre

    Chanel Chance Eau Tendre

    floral, not typical chanel

    This scent reminds me of Marc Jacob's daisy: very floral, fresh, youthful. However this is NOT a signature Chanel scent, and seems almost "out of place" for the brand. I think it is missing something that would make it an "it" fragrance. However, it is a good quality perfume that I enjoy wearing. If you are thinking of purchasing, check out other floral scents to make sure you find the perfect one.

  • imPRESS Press-On Manicure

    These fake nails are fantastic. They will stay on for at least a week, and more if you aren't doing heavy duty activities. I have small hands, and the nails fit me very well, but there are a range of sizes in the box. Tips for applying: remove nail polish, file nails, and apply the provided alcohol wipe (the nail needs to adhere) and press for at least 30 seconds per nail (10 is the suggested time). The nails will stay on, look great and natural. They do no damage to your actual nails. They are easy to remove, and there is virtually no mess. I put them on in the car on the way to a party and everyone though I had gotten my nails done. They are cheaper than a manicure, and way cheaper and less damaging then actual fake nails. Cons:The colors offered are a bit gaudy (cheetah print, sparkles etc). I recommend the basic red, the clear which you can paint over, or the french manicure one.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream with sunscreen SPF 15

    I am in my early 20's with combination skin and this product is wonderful! I am surprised it does not have a higher score. The cream is affordable, goes on smoothly and hydrates without breaking my skin out. I use it daily for sun protection and have not noticed new fine lines appearing. Use it daily, and wait for at least 3-4 weeks for results. I use it under my foundation so that my skin fully absorbs it.

  • Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer

    Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer

    good for fine hair

    This is the perfect product to separate curls and give you a beachy, wavy look instead of a frizzy, unruly look. This product works great with my fine and damaged hair: women with thicker hair may need more hold. Remember to shake well and use only on damp hair: if you use it on dry hair, your hair will turn out sticky. While pricey, you only need a quarter size amount, so the bottle will last you a long time.

  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips

    I used these on my sister (12 years old) as an alternative to nail polish and fake nails. The strips did not work at all: she has rather short, tiny nails and they did not stay on past her first shower. First: the stickers themselves are too big for each nail. They say to file down the strip, but this does not work. If you do buy this, use your own nail file and small scissors to cut them. The fun colors and "not fake nails" make this product cool for kids, but it just did not work for us.
