    EcoTools Bamboo Powder Brush

    EcoTools Bamboo Powder Brush

    I like the theory behind EcoTools (environmentally friendly products); however, I find that their brushes do not hold up in the long run. Perhaps I had a defective brush, but the bristles started falling out soon after the first time I used the powder brush. I am not hard on my make up tools, either. I have heard a few other friends complain that theirs fell apart pretty quickly, too, so I am guessing it was not just a fluke that mine was relatively poorly made. I understand it is not expensive, BUT, I would rather pay a little more for another eco friendly brush that actually holds up. At this rate, I would need to buy four or five brushes compare to the life span of similar products. The bottom line cost ends up being more for the EcoTools (in contrast to similar products), plus, if I have to keep buying new brushes, it seems counter productive to the whole environmentally friendly concept. Once I grew tired of picking off bristles from my face, I gave the brush to my seven year old daughter to use with her play make up. The quality seems to be perfect for dress up time. I only gave this blush brush 5 stars because I feel the company is on the right track, they just need to dedicate more time to designing a better quality product. I feel bad complaining, but I need to be honest, especially considering that when it comes to beauty products, the negative reviews are often more important than the positive ones.

  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer
    3.0

    Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

    Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

    I have used the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer for several months - and I really wanted to give it a fair chance - but so far I am just completely not impressed. Typically, I like Neutrogena products because they work well with my finicky sensitive skin; however, this night cream really fails to deliver desired results. Perhaps it is not/was not the best night cream for my skin type, but I assume there are others out there who also have sensitive skin who are interested in trying out this moisturizer. First problem I had - it was very greasy. I have combination skin, and even in the dry areas it did not absorb very well. Second problem I had - I found that I broke out more often while using it. I am not a stranger to Retin A treatments, so the increased frequency of break outs was pretty surprising. And the third problem I had was the smell. It smelled like a cheap chemical laced lotion. It was not pleasant or tolerable at all. I only gave this a 3 because I like Neutrogena and it did not feel right to give it a lower score.

  • Goody Ouchless Elastics
    10.0

    Goody Ouchless Elastics

    The only hair elastic I'll use!

    I have been using Goody products for a long time with no intentions to switch any time soon. They have great products at a great price. The Goody Ouchless Elastics are the only metal-free hair elastics that do not seem to be a one-time use thing. The others on the market now tend to break at the seams after one or two uses. I have really thick long hair, and I prefer to keep it tied back most days to accommodate my active life-style.

  • Rusk Designer Collection Sheer Brilliance with Argan Oil

    I always try products with Argan oil with hesitation because so many end up too greasy (even when used in moderation!) and leave your hair clumped together and all together a rough feeling. However, this was not the case with the Rusk Designer Collection Sheer Brilliance with Argan Oil. I've used Rusk products for years (I love their thermal flat iron spray), so I wasn't as hesitant trying this out as much as other products. I have super long hair - only a few inches above my waist - and I used a dime-sized amount from tips to around shoulder height, and it was enough to deeply condition, add shine, add protection, eliminate frizziness, and add a very rich glossiness to my hair. Overall, I am extremely happy with this product and already plan on getting a second bottle so I don't have to be without!
