  • Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield

    I got this as part of a sale where you get several items at a discount price. Smells good. I would use this before blowdrying my hair. You do need to shake the bottle because the formula tends to separate. You only need to use a little bit. If you use too much, your hair will look oily and stringy. I would recommend this to people who have thick curly/wavy hair. I do not think this will work for people with fine hair. With medium hair, use sparingly and work the product concentrating on the end of your hair. Overall, it's ok but they do need to work on the formula because the ingredients separate and you need to shake the bottle really well before using.

  • Avon ANEW CLINICAL Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum

    I got this as part of deal where you get several items at a discount price. It feels like a creamy serum. Smells great. I'm usually sensitive to products like these but didn't experience any reaction. I would only use this at night. After a few weeks, I noticed my skin looking better and better. I sometimes get splotchy and this really helped even my skin tone out. At times, I would go without foundation or concealer, just a light dusting of powder. I would recommend this. The price is steep in my opinion so wait until there's a sale to purchase this item.

  • Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips Legs and Body
    9.0

    Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips Legs and Body

    Good for first time waxers

    Tried out these strips on myself and my sister, getting hair off the legs and arms, and our hair was in various lengths. The strips took away 95% of the hair, and I managed to get up to 4 uses from each strip. Our skin was a little red and somewhat irritated, but it went away in an hour. The Perfect Finish wipes that come in the box helps with the irritation and removing any excess wax, and it was pretty saturated with oil which I got many uses from it to wipe over large areas of skin. I suggest if you plan to use the strips more than once, be sure to warm up the strip by rubbing your hand over it once you placed it on your skin. That way, you'll be able to catch more hairs when pulling the strip off and get more uses out of it. Since the box comes with 40 strips and was able to get more than one use out of each strip, one box will last you a long time. Even though it doesn't catch all the hairs, I have no issues either plucking or shaving the excess hairs but this is great for first-time waxers, like me. I liked that it is not messy at all, even with a little leftover wax on the skin. It does take getting used to, since my skin got a little irritated, but the whole experience felt like pulling off a large bandaid. I would recommend this product to first-time waxers. The pamplet enclosed was extremely useful and gave good tips to get a good waxing done.

  • Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner Spray

    I've been using this to help bring my hair back to life, due to almost daily straightening routine. It has really been helping in getting my hair soft and smooth again. I've also used it before I straighten my hair. I've even used it when I haven't washed my hair and want it to smell good. I love that Aussie has not changed their scent in their products, unlike other brands. It smells great, like cherries to me. Plus, the scent lasts all day. I like to use this alongside the Moist shampoo and conditioner and I'm certainly seeing great results in bringing my hair back to life.

  • Aussie Moist Shampoo

    Aussie Moist Shampoo

    My new favorite shampoo

    My sister gave me this, feeling it might work better for my hair. I needed something to get my hair clean and moisturize at the same time, since I have heat damage to my hair (thanks Chi iron, JK). The formula is nice and creamy. Lathered up in no time, rinsed very well. After a few uses, along with the matching conditioner, my hair was more manageable, less dry feeling, and my flyaways were more tamed. And I absolutely love the smell. To me, it smells like cherries. And the scent lasts all day. I usually get compliments that I smell good from people and especially from guys.

    Aussie Moist Conditioner

    Works and smells great!

    My sister gave me this conditioner because she felt it wasn't working for her. I tried this and loved it at first rinse!!! This works so well with the shampoo. The formula is a nice creamy formula. After a few uses, I noticed my hair was becoming less dry and the flyaways were more tamed. I needed something to help condition my hair since I straighten my hair almost everyday and I feel I found a great inexpensive product that will do that. Aside from it working so well, I absolutely love the smell!!! Hasn't changed in years. I don't know what they put in there, but to me, it smells like sweet cherries, and the scent will last all day. Plus, I get compliments for smelling good too!

  • Real Techniques Core Collection

    Real Techniques Core Collection

    Essential for creating a flawless complexion

    After discovering the Pixiwoos and finding out Samantha Chapman had her own brush line that's very affordable, I was glad to hear that they are now being offered at ULTA. I purchased this set along with the Travel Essentials. First off, the hairs are super soft and synthetic taklon so it's cruelty-free. No shedding at all! Brushes are light-weight. This has what you need to blend in your foundation/concealer. The Contour brush is great for applying powder and highlighter for a perfect finish. The Pointed Foundation Brush is great to get those hard to reach places for blending foundation and/or concealer. The Detailer brush is good for concealing but I could also use this for eyeliner. The Buffing brush is amazing to buff in foundation (powder/cream/liquid). It reminds me alot of the Face Expert brush, which will be my next purchase. All brushes are great for blending in your makeup for a natural look. The case is too awesome. It can fold over to protect your brushes. It can be folded back and held by this adjustable string resembling a shoe lace, that can make it stand up as in the picture. Plus the part of the case where it folds over has an elastic band where you can fit 2-3 more brushes. I intend to buy the whole set to retire my aging brushes that I've had for over 10 years. I absolutely love these brushes.

    philosophy summer grace

    Perfect fragrance for summer!

    If you are a fan of Amazing Grace, then I think you will truly appreciate Summer Grace. It's a light airy scent, sort of a lighter version of Amazing Grace. It's a feminine scent, not sweet, but clean smelling. It is an eau de toilette, not an eau de parfum, so it won't be too long lasting. I've been wearing it all day, and I can still smell it on me so it had very good staying power. I have been looking for something light to wear and had never considered this brand but now I'm a huge fan. My only concern is I just found out this is limited edition. I really hope it isn't. Maybe this scent will be seasonal but I think this should be carried year round.

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Fast Dry Nail Color

    I got the pale pink color (Petal Pusher) to do my nails in a French Manicure style and it's the perfect color. It does dry very quickly. I love the wide oval brush. Made it much easier to coat my entire nail in 2-3 strokes max for each nail which made it much faster to get my nails done. I will get much use from the bottle.
