Here are all my reviews:
  • Burt's Bees Soothingly Sensitive Aloe & Buttermilk Body Lotion

    This lotion is great - smells really good, soaks right in, and isn't too thick or heavy. It's not really strong enough for middle of winter, when my skin is really really dry, but for the other three seasons, it's perfect. Good for sensitive skin, too.

  • Kerastase Substance Constructive Leave-in Fortifying Care for Chemically Weakened Hair

    I really like this leave-in conditioner. You really do only need a very small amount - too much, and my hair looks oily and lank the second day. I have shoulder-length fine hair, and use just two small pea-size dabs. It's made my hair really soft and shiny.

    Kerastase Bain Miroir

    Great shampoo

    I really like this shampoo - the lack of sudsiness takes some getting used to, but my hair has never been softer and shinier. It's very pricey, but you don't need very much shampoo, so it lasts longer than you might think. Definitely worth the price if you have colored or highlighted hair.

  • CHI Original Flat Iron

    CHI Original Flat Iron

    Great flatiron!!

    I love this flatiron. My hair is wavy and frizzy, and above my shoulders, so usually when I dry my hair, even after using a round brush, it still poofs out and gets frizzy and thick. All I have to do is run this flat iron through my hair (I run it through pretty fast, in 2 inch sections, but I don't need to be too precise about it), and my hair is flat and shiny for the rest of the day, and the next day, too. It heats up really fast - I'd say about 20 seconds, so I really don't see the point in getting the turbo model. The plates do get very hot - I've burned myself a couple times. It's pretty pricey, but I got a really good deal on Amazon for under $100. Definitely worth the money!

  • Befine Warming Clay Mask

    Befine Warming Clay Mask

    Good mask for dry skin

    This is a great mask for the winter time, if you have dry skin. My skin gets extremely dry in the winter (lots of flakes, even in my t-zone), and this is one of the few products that leaves my skin feeling moisturized. Your face should be slightly damp when you apply this - too dry, and it's too hard to spread and doesn't seem to work as well; too wet, and the mask just slides around when you try to apply it. It warms nicely, and I usually find that at the end of the 5 minutes specified, it's still a little damp, so I leave it on an extra couple minutes. After washing off, it does leave a thin, almost oily film on your face - I think most people either love that or hate it. I hate it in the summer, but in the winter, it feels nice and moisturizing. I would not recommend this for acne-prone skin, due to the oily film it leaves on.

  • Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Hairspray

    This is the only hairspray I use now. Holds my bangs in place really well, and they still feel soft - no stiffness. The smell is really good, too. The spray does get clogged every once in a while, but I find that if I run it under hot water for a few seconds and then give it one or two good sprays into the sink, it's back to normal.

  • Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit

    Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit

    Works pretty well

    I used this stuff on both my arms and legs for keratosis pilaris. It worked really well on my arms - no more bumps, they're totally smooth and clear now. However, did not work on my legs. Not quite sure why.... The lotion is very thick and goopy and stays sticky for ages - it definitely makes your clothes stick to your skin a bit. But worth it for the results. The body wash is great - worked perfectly and good for sensitive skin.

  • Olay 2-in-1 Advanced Ribbons Body Wash

    This is a great body wash. Definitely more moisturizing than a lot of products out there. I still need to use moisturizer afterwards, but if I'm lazy or I forget, I no longer get the dry, flaky skin on my legs that I used to before I used this. My boyfriend was complaining of dry itchy skin, and after using this for a couple days, has no more itching. The smell is pretty good, too.

  • NeXXus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray

    This stuff does what is says - protects my hair from a whole lot of flat ironing. But it definitely makes my hair feel heavier, and look duller than other products. No silky smooth salon blowout hair with this stuff! I'd rather use something that makes my hair feel better and costs less.

  • Nexxus Sleek Memory Straightening Smoothing Spray

    This works really well and I definitely notice a difference, especially when I flat-iron after using this spray. It works much better than any of the other straightening sprays I've tried. It does make my hair feel a little thicker and not quite as silky, but also makes my blowout last a lot longer. I agree with the other reviewer - CHI flat irons are the best - they are awesome.
