    Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser

    Love it! But beware of the bottle...

    Being a teenager, my skin is ridiculously oily and acne prone (to the point where I have two topical creams- one in the morning and one at night- from my dermatologist). I used to have a prescription face wash as well, but I was so tired of the hassle of harsh side effects and bleached towels that I stopped it. I went on the hunt for a good natural, drugstore face wash ( I also wanted something that would be nice to the environment- I had poured enough chemicals down the drain!). I tried a few and eventually I found Neutrogena Naturals. I can't say it cleared up my acne (something like that is virtually impossible with my skin), but it's probably helped. It leaves my skin feeling so fresh and clean and has a great lather the bottle lasts a long time. It has a nice lather and is still very gentle. The only con is that dang pump. Don't expect the "lock" to lock. The first time I packed it in a toiletry bag it leaked all over everything. Don't bring it anywhere without it in a ziploc- it WILL leak- I've had three bottles that all have.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Finishing Paste

    Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Finishing Paste

    It's hard to explain what it does but it does it great!

    So you're supposed to rake this through the ends of your hair to "define layers". I don't have layers, but I bought it for just the normal ends and it's just lovely what it does! It kind of separates clumps of hair and gives the ends that sort of beachy-windblown-salt-air look. Notice it's just the ends; don't bring it up to far or your hair just looks stringy. But it somehow brings a little bit of control and styling to my hair, and as a plus it's almost all natural ingredients! Yay!

  • Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel

    Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel

    Don't always expect miracles

    Well, let me start by explaining that my hair is difficult and has the possibility to have good texture, but just never cooperates. So I've tried lots of products and nothing ever does what it says it should; my hair just always ends up drying poofy/frizzy unless I let it dry overnight which sometimes has good results depending on whatever factors effect it. This one didn't cut down on frizz or poof all that much for me, and it didn't enhance the waves my hair forms naturally very much either.

  • Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Shampoo

    I'm not sure what the deal was for me but this stuff left so much residue that I'm not sure any of the product washed out to begin with. I have very long hair, so it made sense to try "beautiful lengths". However, the first day I tried it the crown of my head was gross after my hair dried. I figured it didn't rinse out enough or something so I tried again and spent like twice as long rinsing as I normally would for any other shampoo but I got the same result! So either I'm doing something wrong or it just doesn't work for me.

  • E.L.F. Studio Matte Lip Color

    I bought the nude color because I needed something matte and nude yet still a lip product for a show I was in, and this didn't fit the bill. The point of the purchase was to prevent my lips from getting washed out, and this is just too light to be nude. It's also very dry and accentuate the creases in your lips in a strange way. It definitely didn't work on stage, but I probably won't ever wear it on a normal day because it just too awkwardly pale! It's a nice product packaging-wise. Nice and precise.

  • Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Fortifying Conditioner

    For a name like "hydra-recharge", it should make my hair feel moisturized. But with the bottle almost empty, my hair actually feels dryer than it did with my last shampoo and conditioner duo (Pantene Aqua Light). I don't know, when I let my hair dry in a braid it is as soft as usual, but if I just let it dry loose overnight my hair feels dry and not very nice. Although, it could be the fact that I need a haircut, but it doesn't make sense because my ends are the driest part, even after using his whole bottle. Either way, I'll be trying something new next!

  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    So my mom was terrified to give me a razor (as a 14 yr old…apparently I'll cut my throat on accident?) and I had to suffer through Nair for like a year, but that's a whole 'nother story. So then she grudgingly allowed me a razor, this one. AH. I never ever cut myself and I used it for I don't even know how long (waaay longer than you're supposed to, but I didn't notice the shave get any worse). The shave also lasted for so long! It's not a hassle for me with this razor. Partly because I'm lazy, but I only felt the need to shave like once a week. It's so smooth while shaving and easy. Oh, and I only use body soap lathered up by a loofah. So I still got goosebumps, but that's because I'm lazy and it's still a GREAT SHAVE. Sadly my mom replaced the head with a normal 3-blade Venus head. But I'm switching back as soon as I can!

  • Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes

    Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes

    Say No to Cucumbers!

    If these are supposed to be for sensitive skin, this brand failed. I've been using wipes right when I get home from school for several weeks. I first used this brand called Simple (at Target, love them!) then when those ran out I wanted something else because they were kind of rough. So I tried these. They are soft (and don't rip) but they burn!! And it was worse today compared to yesterday! So I guess my skin is more sensitive than what "Yes To" expects, even though I didn't think my skin was THAT sensitive. PLUS, with the exact same amount of makeup, there was very little "tan" on the wipe compared to the Simple brand which means it isn't even removing my makeup, and all I use is a minimal-coverage finishing powder. So yeah, it's not working for me.

    Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Shampoo

    Great in some areas

    My hair gets so oily it's ridiculous, so I want something that doesn't leave residue. This definitely doesn't leave residue! My hair feels so light it's great. However, since my hair is medium-thick and curly(ish), it needs more moisture than this offers. So the search continues.
