Here are all my reviews:
  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

    Okay, I think this might have been "dramatically" different when it was first introduced into the industry but now it pales in comparison to other facial moisturizers; even more affordable, drugstore brands. It does hydrate well and feels nice on the skin; not sticky or heavy (for my super-dry skin), but lacks the bells and whistles of other brands' spf and anti-oxidant-rich formulations. An update would be nice (besides the new gel formula) and would keep this a starting player the modern skincare game in my opinion since it does seem to have quite the cult following.

  • Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Eau De Toilette Spray

    I don't know why, I can't put my finger on it, I'm not really astute with those "this and that undertone" and "this and that note" descriptions (with perfumes or wine for that matter) but this scent just has the special something. It's fresh, light, and amazing. I love the men's cologne much better than the women's eau de toilette and can identify it if someone walks by and is wearing it. Since I have worn it and loved it for years, too, it has really pleasant olfactory memories for me. : ) Love.

  • Dove go fresh Body Mist
    9.0

    Dove go fresh Body Mist

    Light, fresh, sophisticated

    I am NOT a perfume person. Not really sure why, but many perfumes tend to give me headaches or make me itch and I tend to be pretty low-maintenance overall so literally spritzing something on is too much work for me to do and something I will forget time and time again. Sometimes, however, I want a little more scent. I want to feel girly, or I'm going on a date with my husband, or whatever but I need a little something extra. This is that something extra for me. It is light, fresh, and lasts quite a while (not all day, I mean, it isn't a perfume). The scents are sophisticated and crisp, not overly sweet or cheap-smelling. Each one is perfect and the price is right.

  • John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze Clear Shine

    I really didn't see many results with this product, maybe a little additional shine and softness but nothing a good conditioner couldn't do. It's not worth the extra step or the price for this product. It has potential, but doesn't quite deliver.

  • Yes To Carrots C is for Conditioner Pampering Hair Mud Conditioner

    I read this superbly glowing review in a magazine a while back when these products were only available online through Walgreen's (now they are ubiquitous; and what's with the saying "yes" to every freaking veggie and fruit under the sun?) and being the absolute helpless product junkie I am I just had to try it for myself (I'm pretty sure it was one of Jean Godfrey-June's features in Lucky; I swear, that chick can talk me into trying anything). Okay, it was okay, but I was underwhelmed. I have fine, curly hair but even this felt too light. It detangled my hair and left it slippery soft when wet, but the moisture didn't last through heat-styling. Hey, I tried!

  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

    I don't know. I loved the scent at first but now it's somewhat cloying and it doesn't wow me on performance either. It is exactly the same Herbal Essences product it's always been and nothing more. A good, basic, perfect for "normal" hair shampoo. Eh.

  • Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying Clear Shampoo

    I don't know; I love the smell, I love the silky feel, but it doesn't really leave my hair much softer or shinier. I think I am expecting too much out of this maybe, but when something is called "triple" anything I expect results times three. So sue me. This did not deliver despite it's superlative claims. Too bad.

  • FHI Heat FHI Platform Ceramic Pink Flat Iron (1

    Used this flatiron for years and years now and I love it! Gets my hair pin-straight, soft, and shiny-- quick. It was totally and completely worth the price as it is an investment; you'll use it for years. The shape even allows you to do waves and curls. Great appliance that is truly ceramic (you can read about the material content on their website). Love it.

  • Benefit Dr. Feelgood
    1.0

    Benefit Dr. Feelgood

    $30 co-pay for this no-purpose "prescription"

    Another miss for Benefit. They really should spend their time developing a select few of their standbys and give up trying to create every little "miracle" under the sun. Really, how many products can you use??? If you used everything in the Benefit line it'd take you 5 hours to get ready. This product cannot be used under makeup (nothing like a primer; waxy, flaky, horrible), cannot be used over makeup (will smear, smudge, and un-set everything you did prior), cannot really be used at all. It just looks cute. C'mon, Benefit, it's time to purge your line of all these unnecessaries and revamp.

  • Benefit Boi-ing

    Benefit Boi-ing

    Not good

    This was one of the first "luxury" brand concealers I tried. I was unimpressed and remain unimpressed with this product. It is thick, cakey, and dry and settles into lines around eyes almost immediately. It doesn't conceal dark circles very well or brighten. This product almost prevented me from trying Benefit's "erase paste" but that product is actually pretty good. They should discontinue this concealer and leave erase paste in the line.
