    Gillette Venus Original Razor

    Well I've used Embrace

    I'm a little biased. I started with Embrace, which I freaking loved, so I felt like I downgraded. But I've never used anything else, so it's probably good compared to others. it's not as smooth while shaving, and much easier to cut myself, but the shave is still a nice shave, I've just had better.

  • Blistex Complete Moisture

    You will never catch me without a lip balm and I've tried them all. This feels so smooth and silky. Like it says, you can feel this balm but it makes you feel like your lips are well taken care of, like a non-sticky gloss (sort of). This is probably because it isn't thick and it glides on. It also has SPF 15 (plus) and the taste is sweet (sometimes borderline too sweet, that's the ONLY thing).

  • Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

    I am a lip balm junkie, let me tell you. I always have one on me and this is one of my favorites! My lips feel hydrated afterwards and its the kind of chapstick that you can feel in a good way.

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Fast Dry Nail Color

    The colors are nice. It dries fast. But the brush is so fat and the formula is so thick that it's impossible to do a neat job. I'm capable of doing my nails perfectly, but not with this brand. And it doesn't remove very easily (with 100% acetone remover).

  • Maybelline New York Shine Free Oil Control Translucent Pressed Powder

    To start with my skin probably sets the world record for oil production. The color I got was a little too light and it looked a little powdery all over. The "shine control" was pretty good, nothing lasts forever, but the reason I won't buy again is the package! It sat in my closet and after only a few uses the lid broke off! So when I did need to bring it along with me, it was quite difficult because it made such a mess. Not so great.

  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
    6.0

    Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

    Did not live up to all expectations

    Being a teenage girl, my skin is like the BP oil spill. Not pretty. So it's quite difficult to contain that oil. First of all, I picked the color that MATCHED PERFECTLY under the harsh fluorescent lights of Target, however it is slightly too pale in actuality. It looks powdery around the edges of my nose, so I don't put it there. It does have good coverage for a powder, I don't even feel the need for foundation, and the rest of my face looks nice and natural. And now for the "staying matte" part. The packaging says "up to five hours!". Key words: 'up to'. Not 'at least'. So no, it doesn't last all that long. But it's still the best powder I've used, my search just isn't yet over.

  • Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo

    I don't use this every time I wash my hair. My hair gets super oily, so I use Pantene Aqua Light regularly (no residue) and this about once every two weeks or so. I really don't think this leaves so much residue itself, however. So my hair is wavy/curly and quite frizzy and poofy when I let it air dry. Because of this, I wash my hair at night and let it dry overnight. The days after I use this shampoo my hair is softer than usual and doesn't feel dry. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy either! I can't say anything about long-term, but it's probably very effective.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm

    L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm

    So Far... My Go-to!

    Like every girl, I'm on the hunt for the perfect lip color. I don't want a lipstick (too heavy), but I still want some color and nothing sparkly or too glossy. Plus I need moisture because I sail which means I'm outside in the sun and wind. I figured these new lipstick/ balm crossovers would do the trick. I've tried several and there's always something wrong, but this one I like enough to use until it runs out. It meets all my above criteria, except moisture. It feels a little dry on my overworked lips. That's the only reason to take off stars: I like everything else! I just wish there were more color options.

  • L'Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean

    I have terrible acne that requires two topical gels from my dermatologist. I used to use a prescription benzoyl peroxide wash but it was too harsh so I reverted back to drugstore brands. I like to use a scrub in the morning and just a cleanser at night. I used this Loreal Go 360 Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrub for quite a while, I and I liked it. It was gentle on my skin and I loved the little scrublet! So convenient. After the first bottle, I did buy it again a few more times but eventually stopped because I wanted something natural/ nice to the environment. Overall great product.

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Powder

    It keeps my face virtually oil free (trust me, a difficult feat) all day, but it leaves my skin looking kind of chalky, not dewy or natural. You could say it evens out my skin tone with the different colors, but honestly it's not a big noticeable difference. I bought the middle shade, yet my face is still waay too pale when I use it. There is a definite difference between my neck and face with this, so I rarely use it any more. Which is too bad, because if my face looked better the oil fighting is great.
