  • Novalash Japonesque Heated Eyelash Curler

    I would love to try this heated eyelash curler but have no idea where to purchase it. Can you tell me if this is available at any large stores, can you buy it online or do you have to go to a beauty supply store to find this? I live in the South if that helps.

  • Carmex Original Tube
    9.0

    Carmex Original Tube

    Good Stuff!

    I used to use other lip balms but I found that I like Carmex the best. I always use it at night before I go to sleep, during the day and anytime I feel a slight tingling sensation in my lips (when I think I might have a fever blister possibly coming up). I think this stuff tastes bad. But you can buy it with SPF15 in it and it can't be beat for a lip moisturizer or using under lipstick. I took off one star because of the 'medicine-y' smell it has but that's a small price to pay for soft, smooth, healthy looking lips.

  • Redken Blonde Glam Shampoo

    I have naturally blonde hair and am classified as a "dishwater" blonde. Even when I don't have highlights in my hair, this shampoo works great on my hair. It makes natural blonde and highlighted blonde hair glow. Redkin is rich, luxurious and it doesn't strip my hair of all of it's natural oils like so many cheap shampoos can do. I also have the Redkin Blonde conditioner but I normally use it in the winter time only since I live in a hot, humid state. During the summer, instead of using the Redkin Blonde Glam Conditioner, I prefer to use a good detangling conditioner (like Rusk) so I know that my hair won't become greasy close to my scalp once the weather gets warmer. This Redkin Blonde Glam shampoo is worth the money, you use less of the product when compared to normal drug and big box store shampoos and it always leaves my hair shiny and in wonderful condition.

  • Origins Have a Nice Day Super-Charged Moisture Lotion - SPF 15

    I don't know what the irritant is in Origins products but with my dry, sensitive skin, I found that almost all Origins products break me out. I really wanted to like this brand because I've heard so many good things from a lot of people but whatever the manufacturers put in Origins, it breaks me out terribly every time I try to use their products again.

  • Mi Voga Organic Acai Body Lotion
    9.0

    Mi Voga Organic Acai Body Lotion

    Mi Voga smells soooo good!

    After reading so many reviews, I decided to try Mi Voga's products. I love the way their body lotion doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, has antioxident properties and isn't greasy. After I put this body lotion on, I can put my clothes on immediately because it soaks right in. As many times as I wash my hands in one day, I've found that my hands are extremely dry and that my hands need a thicker, greasier cream at night when I go to bed. But if you want a body lotion that doesn't cause you to drop anything, soaks right in and has an absolutely fabulous smell, give this body lotion a try. I received my products wrapped in newspaper in a recycled cardbox box, so the folks at Mi Voga are trying to be as earth conscious as possible which rates great in my list of products that I highly recommend. And these products are all reasonably priced.

  • Mi Voga Organic Acai Body Oil
    10.0

    Mi Voga Organic Acai Body Oil

    I love the antioxident properties!

    I used to only use Neutrogena Sesame Body Oil but since I found this Mi Voga Organic Acai Body Oil, I have to say that it is really the only thing I've ever found that was comparable to my Neutrogena Oil. And Mi Voga is good for your skin. Since I have dry skin, I slather this all over my body and it soaks right in. Mi Voga Body Oil is fantastic stuff and if I hadn't been reading these reviews, I probably would not have ever tried this moisturizing oil. I have trouble using many oils because of my skin being sensitive but Mi Voga doesn't irritate my dry, sensitive skin at all. Plus it has a wonderful, light, citrusy smell... almost reminiscent of oranges.

  • Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub
    9.0

    Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub

    Works fine on my sensitive skin.

    I just rounded the corner of middle age. I also have very mild Rosacea and my skin is dry plus very sensitive. Even though this Neutrogena Fresh Scrub doesn't actually foam very well, I still like it. I wash my face with a non-soapy, very gentle cleanser like Neova's Soothing Milk Cleanser using my mini Clairisonic scrubber. Then I put Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub on my freshly cleansed face and do the exfoliation part while I'm in the shower. I don't overdue the exfoliation because my skin is sensitive so I limit that to twice weekly. But after I rinse my face, I then apply Acai Antioxident Oil to my face and then pat it dry. On goes my Skinceauticals Hydrating B-5 Gel and then I always follow-up with my moisturizer. You might think my skin would be greasy after applying oil and moisturizer but all these products (oil and moisturizer) soak into my skin to provide optimum hydration. My face feels clean, smoothed, soothed and protected by adding my Neutrogena 75+ Sunscreen. If I need to put on all my makeup that day, then I do it after I have followed all these steps. I took off one star because this Neutrogena Scrub doesn't actually foam up very much. Otherwise, I love it! The packaging is simple, it is readily available at stores and I get my money's worth without irritating my dry, sensitive skin.

  • Neutrogena Body Oil
    10.0

    Neutrogena Body Oil

    I love my Neutrogena Body Oil!

    I love how moisturized and soft this oil leaves my skin especially after I shower. I apply it while my skin is still damp and then pat myself dry. My skin is very sensitive and dry but this is one of the very few oils I can always depend on to make my skin feel soft and smooth without causing any irritation whatsoever. The fragrance is very nice and subtle but Neutrogena also makes an unscented oil if you can't handle anything with fragrance. I have tried other body oils but I always keep coming back to this because it works great on me, it does what it claims and it is reasonably priced!

  • Neutrogena Visibly Firm Night Cream

    I think for a very reasonably priced skin cream, this Neutrogena Visibly Firm works fairly well for me. During the winter months (I'm a Southerner that lives in a humid climate), I have to apply a richer moisturizer to keep my face from getting too dry. But since I don't live in a colder, dryer climate, that may be why this Neutrogena Visibly Firm Night Cream works well for me. I normally use this over their Neutrogena Visably Firm Serum. What is great is that this cream doesn't irritate my dry, sensitive skin at all and it seems to help with fine lines... pretty much as well as the more expensive brands I've tried.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers

    If you like the truly natural look, then this makeup is great because it is very lightweight. I have really dry, sensitive skin and Healthy Skin doesn't irritate my Rosacea. There are times when I want heavier coverage and Healthy Skin Glow Sheers isn't really buildable. For everyday use, at home or when you want a natural look as if you aren't wearing any makeup, then this is good stuff! The cost is reasonable but I found that this product doesn't last all day long. It all depends on what you are looking for in a makeup. But I have yet for a Neutrogena product to let me down.
