    Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat

    Decent product, decent price

    I recently tried the white crackle. I noticed a lot of reviews saying they couldn't get the polish to crackle. I've also seen conflicting opinions on whether to do a thick or thin coat. I applied the white onto lime green polish (a revlon one). I let that completely dry for about 30 minutes. I did a thin layer of crackle. It definitely crackled, and the best description is that it looks like the bottle/cracks in all directions. I applied a thicker coat on a few nails for comparison, it cracked too but was "deeper" and the cracks were wider. I haven't tried any other crackle polish, so I can't make any comparisons that way. The only major complaint I have is the brush is SO small and not flexible enough. Also, you have to apply it really fast because it crackles right away. I didn't notice an overly long drying time, but I did apply a quick-dry top coat after about 5 minutes. I'd like to try some other colors, but I have read some of the metallic colors don't crack as well.

  • Olay Total Effects Body Lotion

    Olay Total Effects Body Lotion

    Smooth, smells good

    I started using this lotion about a week ago. I'm only 22, so I don't have much to say in terms of anti-aging type results. I can say that I'm not nearly as dry as I was. The product is really smooth and lightweight which is a huge pro for summertime. The smell is good, but a little strong. The scent does fade in a few hours. It's a little pricey, but worth it if it does a good job. I'm not sure if I'd buy it again simply because I don't know if I need an anti-aging lotion at 22. I'll probably try another Olay lotion next.

  • Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Normal

    I've tried a lot of facial lotions. The problem I always have is products that feel heavy or greasy or make my makeup look cakey. With Olay, I don't have this problem. It's a lightweight, easy to apply lotion. A little goes a long way since it's thin, which could be a problem if your face is extra dry (I'm combination on my face). I love that it has an SPF because I'm sure we all could do better in that department. My only "complaint" is that I can smell the sunscreen, but compared to other products (and the equate brand of this), it's 10x better.

  • Olay 2-in-1 Advanced Ribbons Body Wash

    The smell was great, though a little strong. The product lathers really well with a loofa, I use half of what I would normally use in gel-type brand. It does moisturize really well. As a few other posters have stated, I still use lotion. Regardless, I absolutely love the product. It's nice to have the extra moisturizing in the winter obviously, but also in the summer since I'm drying out from the pool chemicals and sun.

  • Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub

    I do like this cleanser. It doesn't take much product. However, I found it to be drying and a bit smelly. On the plus, I got some in my eyes and it wasn't as bad as some other cleansers. I haven't really noticed a reduction in pore size, and I am still getting pimples. I was really hoping this would help get rid of blackheads/large pores on my nose.

  • EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

    I got a pretty good deal on this shave cream (2 for $2 at walgreens). It's definitely different because it's more like a lotion. It doesn't lather or foam. It was a little hard to use in the shower because I felt like the water was diluting it too much. But, it didn't seem to matter. I shaved one leg with the gel I had and one leg with this product. The leg I used this on is quite a bit smoother than the other leg. It's a little pricey if not on sale. I will have to see how long it lasts!

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    Honestly, I only bought this product because I am constantly losing the little tubes of Chapstick! I bought the honeydew one, and I am in love. It makes my lips feel so smooth and soft. The taste is good (especially compared to some other organic products). Application is easy since the sphere is so large. I am in love with this product. I can't wait to try the Mint and Summer Fruit!

  • Maybelline New York Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation

    For being a relatively cheap foundation, this is a decent product. It's lightweight, has 15spf. I think it blends well. It doesn't feel heavy and doesn't cake. Coverage is pretty good for such a lightweight formula. Major blemishes would require a concealer though. Some people said it got oily, which I haven't noticed, but I also work inside. I would buy it again, which is saying a lot because I am a department store foundation kind of woman!

  • Clairol Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam
    1.0

    Clairol Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam

    Go with the Perfect 10

    This product is horrible. First, it didn't foam well at all! (at least not like Samy foaming hair color). Secondly, it smells like someone else mentioned stale beer or to me soy sauce. Thirdly, it burns, and I've not had any other hair color burn like this one did. The color is darker than usual, which is disappointing because I was trying to go lighter. The bottle itself to squeeze out is annoying too (I kept trying to squirt instead of squeeze). I love the Perfect 10 line and would just recommend that!
