  • Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner

    This conditioner is a family favorite -- everyone in my family has been using it for years. Sometimes my parents even fight over which of them has softer hair. I used to use this as a daily leave-in, but now I find it a bit heavy and greasy for that purpose. Instead, I keep some around for hair emergencies, like the time my hair started frying and I realized it was because the heat setting on my hair drying had been mysteriously turned up. When applied, it immediately "soaks" into your hair. A great product to have around!

    Lush Karma Komba

    Unisex Clean

    I bought this shampoo because I got my husband hooked on solid shampoo bars, but he thought my Godiva was too girly, and Seanik was stripping color from my hair. This has a very subtle citrus and patchouli fragrance, subtle enough that someone who hates patchouli would still probably enjoy it. This is a great product that I can share with my husband, and it definitely gets out hair squeaky clean. My only complaint is that it works so well that I need a good conditioner after using it. (I recommend LUSH's American Cream.)

  • M2 Skin Care M2 Skin Refinish 20%

    When I first began using this product, I started using it every other night. This is NOT recommended. As I later found, you should use only a pea sized amount and work up to every other night very gradually. The result for me was a horrible initial breakout -- tiny bumps and whiteheads all over my face. I immediately backed off and moisturized my skin well, and once the bumps began to flake off, I saw nice, smooth skin and gradually began using the product again. Some people seem to have overnight success with this, but I definitely recommend a heap of patience if you don't want disastrous results.

  • Korres Natural Products Pomegranate Balancing Moisturizer

    I have oily, acne prone skin, and when I first received this product, I almost didn't use it. The cream-gel formula was thicker than I expected, and I was sure it would break me out. The smell of the lotion is completely heavenly though, and I decided to give it a chance. I quickly learned that you need very little product to do the job -- if you use to much, you'll definitely be left with oily skin. Once I found the right amount, I was in love. This product creates a barrier between your skin and any environmental irritants, moisturizes beautifully, is non-irritating, and even helped my existed blemishes heal. It also has a little SPF (6).

  • Lush Aqua Marina

    Lush Aqua Marina

    Great for Sensitive Skin

    I've tried a few of LUSH's rolled cleansers, and I was surprised by this one because it wasn't nearly as exfoliating as Herbalism or Angels on Bare Kin. Aqua Marina is much creamier, which makes it easier to use and gives it a more "cleansing" feel. I like the results of this -- soft, clean skin and a slight reduction in redness; however, the smell is extremely salty and I had to hold my breath while it was on my face because the smell truly grossed me out. I'm hoping it will grow on me, as I think this is a great, mild product for sensitive skin.

    M.A.C. Lipstick

    High Tea

    I have pale skin and highly pigmented lips, and I always have a hard time finding a good nude lipcolor. Mac's High Tea is a great, almost nude color -- a pinky beige with some golden shimmer. The lipstick is creamy and lasts a surprisingly long time, and it makes my lips looks big and luscious.

  • NeXXus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray

    I used this protecting spray for a few weeks and basically saw no results. My hair didn't feel especially damaged from heat when I used it, but it didn't feel soft or silky either. It actually left my hair a bit tacky feeling, so I'd recommend a light touch. This might work for someone with really healthy fine hair, but for my thick, coarse hair, I need more conditioning in a heat protector.

  • Korres Natural Products Shea Butter and Vitamins Nourishing Hair Mask

    This is definitely my favorite hair treatment that I've ever used. I just shampoo my hair normally, towel dry slightly while in the shower, and apply this as a conditioner. It doesn't take much, and I leave it in while I shave. After rinsing, the results are phenomenal. My coarse, thick, wavy hair is soft and well behaved, and the damage from blow drying and straightening is gone. Highly recommended for anyone whose hair needs nourishment!

  • Alberto VO5 Tea Therapy Vanilla Mint Tea Conditioner

    I love this conditioner. It's inexpensive and it leaves my hair silky smooth without the use of silicones. The scent is light and clean. This is an especially great product for anyone with oily hair, as it rinses clean and leaves your hair soft without weighing it down. A great deal!

  • Alberto VO5 Tea Therapy Vanilla Mint Tea Shampoo

    I recently switched to a silicone-free haircare regimen, and most of the products that I use are expensive. When I ran out a few weeks ago, I expected that I would only find expensive products at the grocery store, but I was wrong. I think a bottle of this cost me $1, and it worked well, leaving my hair squeaky clean and soft. The scent is refreshing without being cloying -- even my husband likes it and asked me to buy it again.
