    Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream

    you can pry this hand cream from my cold dead hands!

    I tried every tester hand cream at Ulta and wasn't in love with any of them. I was ready to go through life with gross, dry hands until an Aubrey Plaza-esque employee came up and handed me this hand cream. I was sold, and not just because she was so very deadpan, but because this hand cream is amazing. it's light, super moisturizing and smells wonderful. You WILL love it.

  • Crystal  Body Deodorant Roll-on
    5.0

    Crystal Body Deodorant Roll-on

    works but is drying.

    Crystal was the first natural deodorant I tried, and it worked great for odor control. The issue I eventually had was that it was very drying on my underarms (tmi?) and made me itch so I stopped using it. If you are looking for a natural deodorant and have had this problem try Jason's, it's a stick that's more moisturizing.

  • Jason Lavender Deodorant

    This is my favorite natural deodorant. I was using Crystal but found it dried my underarms and made them itchy. This stuff is great, it's not drying, does not leave white on your clothes, smells nice and lasts a long time. You do need to use it about twice a day, but it works great. The apricot scent is great too.

  • Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner
    10.0

    Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner

    surprisingly great product

    I cannot say enough good things about all the suave Professionals products. I was shocked when I used this and loved it and now all I use is suave. It's so cheap and so great on my hair, which is super thick and really coarse--there is NO other brand you can get at the drugstore that is this good. This is better than Nexxus, Dove, Paul Mitchell, Biolage, everything. I am obsessed. I got better results with this than I did with redken. I have now tried all the Professionals conditioners and this one and the Sleek one are both great. This one has a milder fragrance so it is my favorite.

  • WEN Fall Ginger Pumpkin Cleansing Conditioner
    9.0

    WEN Fall Ginger Pumpkin Cleansing Conditioner

    the absolute best wen formula

    having tried all the Wen formulas, I can say that for me this one was the best. The seasonal scents are always better...this and the mango coconut are awesome. This stuff smells like pumpkin pie and is really, really nice. It's more moisturizing than the sweet almond and better on frizz. Might be a bit heavy on fine hair but I have thick, coarse hair and it's really nice.

  • Wen Fig Re-Moist Hydrating Mask
    5.0

    Wen Fig Re-Moist Hydrating Mask

    ok, not great but not bad

    I've used all the wen scents and I have thick, coarse hair and thought fig would be the one for me. It wasn't. The remoist smells exactly like Flintstone vitamins...which was weird, and was not that moisturizing. I would buy the pomegranate remoist instead--it is AMAZING.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

    I have never had good results using Neutrogena acne products. Maybe it's my freakish skin that breaks out with anything less than 7% benzoyl peroxide, or maybe it's just that this cleanser sucks. I got it for the smell, which in hindsight was a bad decision. Me and salicylic acid will never be BFF. Using this was like throwing grease on a fire, my skin was like "oh, girl please" and promptly freaked out. My acne came roaring back and though it smelled nice, it was not even worth it since it did absolutely nothing for my skin.

  • ProActiv Medicated Cleansing Bar

    My roommate got one of these and I went to take a shower and smelled something awesome, so I got out and was like "I don't know what you were using in there, but it smelled freaking fantastic." She showed me the bar and holy crap, it smells great. I don't know if it works for acne since it uses salicylic acid and my acne is, like, industrial strength and nothing less than 7% benzoyl peroxide helps me at all, but I bought one and put it in my bedroom for the smell. (I'm a loser.)

  • ProActiv Smoothing Primer

    Not a terrible primer but not that great either. It goes on SUPER light and feels a bit oily (I know there's no oil in it, it just has a weird texture.) It helps even the skin texture a bit but does nothing for redness or anything else. Honestly you're better off using the Proactiv green tea moisturizer as a primer, it's cheaper and actually works quite well.

  • Proactiv Daily Oil Control
    7.0

    Proactiv Daily Oil Control

    does what it says.

    I have oily/combination skin and I found that this was a little too strong for me and was a bit drying. It really does work though. Your skin will not be oily, but it might be a bit dry. If you've very oily skin and don't tend toward the more combination end of the spectrum I would give it a try.
