  • Terax Original Crema Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner

    Okay why. Why??? Why does this not work for me like it does everyone else? I just can't get behind the hype. It's thin, it's watery; it detangles definitely but I do not see a huge difference in the way my hair looks, feels, or behaves! Is this product just not made for me? Or maybe I am just not made for this product. Oh well. There are millions more out there to try; at least I don't have to pay the high price!

  • TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost

    TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost

    GREAT for split ends

    I really like this stuff; I'm not sure how I would categorize it (a serum? No. A leave-in? Not quite. Hmmm...)but it really is worth the extra step in your styling process. It works great before blow-drying and gives lots of shine without weighing hair down, and is FANTASTIC after styling smoothed over flyaways and ends. It seals splits and makes your hair look smooth, shiny, and fresh-cut. And it really isn't heavy at all. And, of course, has that TIGI fruity, addicted-to-it-like-crack, amazing smell. :)

  • Alterna Hemp Straightening Balm

    Alterna Hemp Straightening Balm

    A great, lightweight straightener

    I have used this stuff off and on for years and I actually really like it. While there have been products that have come out more recently that I have graduated to that work better, this is still a great, lightweight straightening balm. It works well to smooth and straighten fine, frizzy hair. It's light, smells great, won't weigh your hair down but leaves you with shiny, straight, smooth hair. The bottle is pretty big, too, and will last you forever.

    Got2b Curled-Up Spray

    Leaves hair greasy and stiff

    Wow. Grease, grease, grease, grease, grease and a stiff, dry feel along with it? This is one of those, "damn I could've bought Starbucks with that 6 bucks" moment. Live and learn.

  • Neutrogena Body Oil

    Neutrogena Body Oil

    non-oily body oil

    For an oil this is decidedly non-oily, if that makes sense. It is the smoothest, sheerest body oil ever and leaves my often PARCHED, sensitive skin hydrated and not greasy. Okay, a little teensy bit greasy, but honestly it feels so hydrated that I put up with it. Love this stuff. Just wish it wasn't quite so pricey.

  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

    This powder foundation is great. I used to use this a lot when I was 18-19 and it was perfect for my skin then, it is a tad heavy for me now and settles into the beginnings of fine lines, but it is easy to adjust the amount of product you use to adapt to your skin and coverage needs. One compact will last you a long time. I usually use this as a finishing powder over my tinted moisturizer (to add moisture to my dry skin before using the studiofix) and it leaves me with a flawless complexion. It's the best product of its kind. Love the finish I get with this product.

  • LORAC Starry Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio
    4.0

    LORAC Starry Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio

    Too shimmery, not pigmented enough

    I normally LOVE Lorac's shadows; they are seriously some of the best in the industry. But...not a huge fan of the starry baked ones. I have the kit in the bronze shades and they really are too shimmery (the shimmer gets all over the compact and all over you) and it is hard to pick up pigment with your makeup brush, then doesn't have much of a strong color payoff like their other eyeshadows do. Their other shadows are definitely worth the money, but this one not so much.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

    Waaaay too drying. This has 2% salicylic acid which should keep my little bumps and dry skin cells away, but it's so drying that it actually seems to make it worse. It smells good. But pretty scent does not a good cleanser make. I will stick with my favorite Olay anti-aging anti-blemish scrub.

  • Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Anti-Blemish Daily Cleanser
    10.0

    Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Anti-Blemish Daily Cleanser

    Literally the only facial cleanser I use.

    The ONLY facial cleanser I use. Okay, except for a makeup removing cleanser. I swear by this product and I really have tried them all. This is THE perfect balance of skin-clearing and moisture-balancing. It has 2% salicylic acid which helps keep dry skin build-up and those little bumps and uneven patches away but also has moisturizing ingredients so the high level of salicylic acid doesn't irritate dry skin. It keeps my skin clear and moisturized (not too sure about the anti-aging properties) and looking it's best. I really hope they never discontinue this product!

  • Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

    Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

    Heals dry lips and chapped skin

    Love this stuff. I use it on my lips almost every morning. I put it on right after washing my face and by the time I'm done with my makeup it has softened the little flakes on my lips and I just rub them softly with a washcloth and they're left soft and moisturized. I use it whenever my lips feel super dry and even on the skin around my nose which gets red and chapped when I have a cold. It has a high level of petrolatum which is the main work-horse in this product. Love the smell, too.
