    WEI East China Herbal Intensive Eye Pads

    Refreshing but Wouldn't Buy for Myself

    I received a sample pack from Total Beauty for Review of the Wei East China Herbal Intensive Eye Treatment Pads to review. Upon opening the packet , I enjoyed the fresh scent. I looked online to find the ingredients and was pleasantly surprised...simple natural extracts & herbs. Green tea, peppermint, mulberry, chrysanthemum etc. I laid down and covered my eye area and actually dozed off. It did feel like a spa experience. I removed the pads and did notice my eyes looked a little mor well rested. I know the combination of green tea and chrysanthemum is an old Chinese Ayurvedic because of the ability to reduce immflamation, destroy free radicals with oxygen active herbs, but when I looked online I feel they are a little costly for what you are getting.

  • Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum

    I received a deluxe sample of Carols Daughter Monoi Oil from Total Beauty for review. I used this product for seven days and cannot say I love it or even like it. I found my hair soft when it was wet but my ends seemed extra dry as the week went on. I do not have super thick or curly hair, but I do have wavy hair that I use heat on, as well as, have my hair lightly foiled every 3 months. I use natural sources for moisture, shea butter, macadamia nut oil etc. and they work so much better. The scent was a little overpowering for me ..too much of a perfume aroma. Could be the silicone in the product, I'll stick to 100 percent coconut oil and save some time and money.

  • Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial

    I was given a super deluxe size of Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial to try at home and give my unbiased review. It was a part of the Total Beauty Collection for HSN. Thanks again Total Beauty! I would first like to say I normally like to use a product for 7-10 days or more before i give my opinion . I have used this product only 3 times , given the effectiveness, I would not suggest using every day unless you have damaged or acne prone skin. My skin is not sensitive, or too sun stricken and I have combination skin with visible pores around my nose. This product (a small pea amount) transformed the appearance of my skin. The very fine gritty texture dug out all of the gook trapped in my pores and took away any dry, dead skin leaving a healthy glow. I only use this product at night before going to bed, as I felt using it in the daytime opened my skin up to any pollution , dirt or extra Sun rays leaving my skin vulnerable to the elements. It does not foam a lot (and it shouldn't if its a true exfoliant) but it does remove the days makeup. The scent was very light, which was sort of an aromotherapy experience. I did use my Rosé water & aloe witch hazel tonic (my recipe for closing my huge pores) and my night time moisturizer sunk in so nicely. Waking up in the morning ..I swear I was looking younger !! I highly recommend serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage for anyone who wants beautiful skin. I have always used another exfoliant very similar with the initials MK ..and I have decided to replace that product with my new Glycolic Gommage .

  • Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    Very Velvety Smooth & Moisturizing

    I received a deluxe sample of Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream to review. I have been using it a couple times a day for seven days. I would first like to say, upon rubbing it in..I had that Aahhh moment. Then as I was rubbing it in, I found myself not enjoying the scent. The scent reminds me of the shower to shower bath powder my grandmother used in the 1970's, but with more of an almond scent. I'm not a fan of the smell of almond or hazelnut products, but that's me. Anyone else would probably say it smells warm and comforting. A small amount went a long way. It glided on smoothly and the moisture lingered after a hand washing or two. This I liked, as I am a germ-a-phobe and I found I did not have to reapply as much as my other hand creams. I would recommend this hand lotion to men, women and children because of the neutral scent and the organic makeup of essential oils & shea butter. I do like it a lot, I'm gonna see if I can find it in another scent though !

  • Benefit The Porefessional

    Benefit The Porefessional

    Primed and Poreless, Amazing

    I received a deluxe sample of the Pore Professional for review. I actually already own a full size tube (a little goes a long way). I have combination skin so I suffer from those enlarged pores along the sides of my nose that seem to suck in every foundation like a vacuum !! With pore professional , it glides on like no other product I have ever used. I actually look forward to this part of my skin prepping. Maybe it's the very very light scent (reminds me of sugared tangerines) that lifts my mood or the miraculous way it stays atop my pores and allows my makeup to glide on looking like I am 10 years younger. Either way..the only thing I can say is....IT WORKS. I rated it 8 stars (even though the product is worthy of 10) because of the lid. I'm not a fan of products that make you unscrew the cap and remove. In a hurry ..if I forget to put the top back on, it's a little to pricey to let it dry out.

    Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials

    Better For Brightening

    I received a deluxe sample of Trish Mcevoy's Eye Base Essentials to review. I have used it or 7 days and have to say it is not my favorite product as an eyelid primer, but is good for brightening. I have allergies to dust etc. so I conquer "eye shiners" on a daily basis. It's a battle to get my eyelids to look bright and well rested. I used this product as instructed, but found I have to layer it on top of my concealer and then apply a separate eyelid primer on top. The reason..it glides on nicely, but is a bit to slippery and I find my shadow doesn't stay in place all day. As far as brightening ..it's nice, but I wish the shade were a little lighter for us girls with the "shadow eye". I'm not too sure what the retail is on this product ..but I would recommend not spending too much.

  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

    Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

    One Coat Will Do you!!

    I received a sample of Too faced Better Than sex Mascara for product review. I have used it everyday for 7 days and have fallen in love. I do have have very long eyelashes, however, they are very thin. With this mascara, I applied one coat and my lashes quadrupled in length with tons of volume!! My biggest pet peeve about other mascaras I've tried is the promise of length & thickness. With this mascara, too faced delivered in both departments. The color was a very rich black, which I love because I have small eyes and kept its color all day. I had absolutely NO clumping ...which Was a complete surprise. When I first looked at the brush, i thought, oh no..this is gonna be a big mascara mess, but too faced obviously designed the brushes bristles this way to give you a one coat wonder. I took one star away, only because I did not care for the hourglass design of the bush. Others who have wider set or larger eyes may be able to appreciate this design more. The price was not an issue ..I have already bought the full size at Sephora. Mascara to me is like the canvas to a masterpiece painting ..never skimp on mascara or foundation. They are an integral part of your makeup masterpiece !!

  • Frederic Fekkai Essential Shea Conditioner

    I found this conditioner to be less moisturizing and more coating. I used just a small amount and it felt like I was trying to rinse pure butter out of my hair. After a week, my hair needed a clarifier and a real moisturizing conditioner. I am giving it three stars only because my ends of my hair was the only thing that benefited. For the price, I will not buy this conditioner again. Yuck.

  • Clairol Professional Repair Daily Shampoo

    I received a bottle of this shampoo from total beauty to review. I gave this shampoo over two weeks using it every day for the first week and every other day by the second week. My first impression was, where is the lather? I thought perhaps I had too much build up in my hair , so I used my neutrogenia anti-residue shampoo and tried it again the next night. Still no lather, when I tried to rinse it out, it felt as though I had some type of residue left behind (a pet peeve of mine when it comes to hair care). I was still excited to see the difference it made on my color treated hair (I partial foil with a non bleach highlight & lowlight) every 5 months). I styled and nothing. No amazing shine, no "wow". My hair actually seemed more weighted at the roots. So as you can see, I'm not impressed with clairols attempt at Pro products at a drug store price. I didn't care for this shampoo at all, I didn't even hand it down to my husband (who uses whatever I do not use:) . I give it 4 stars for the clean scent.

  • Victoria's Secret Pink Body Lotion

    I really love the packaging and aroma of this lotion. It makes me feel extra feminine after a nice shower. It is moisturizing and doesnt give you that tacky feeling that alot of perfumed lotions give you.
