    Aveda Be Curly Curl Controller

    great curl finisher

    This is a great product if you know how to use it. I wait until my hair is almost dry and then take a tiny bit of this cream, work it through the tips of my hair, and they keep their curl definition without going frizzy and without weighing down my hair. This isn't a normal gel or mousse, but a nice finishing product. Also works well with the whole aveda system, if you don't mind shelling out some big bucks for all of the products.

  • Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula

    I have curly hair that I only iron straight on occasion and this is the product I use when I do that. It is helpful for protecting my hair from the heat of the iron and it holds its shape without being stiff at all.

    Kiehl's Creme de Corps

    perfect moisture

    This is my new favorite moisturizer. I have combination skin so I'm always using a drying product with a moisturizing one, and this is the perfect moisturizer- not greasy, easily absorbs, stays the perfect level of moisture. A great find.

  • Stila Cover Up Stick

    Stila Cover Up Stick

    good coverage for blemishes

    This is a good mid-range priced product for people (like me) with occasional adult blemishes. I like the stick (rather than a cream) applicator and it blends well when I apply it under my normal light foundation and powder. It seems to hold up well for most of the day, though I have to make sure I blend it or else it will stick out after the rest of my makeup has dissolved in the evening.

    Redken Shine Balance Glass 01 Smoothing Serum

    helpful addition to styling routine

    At first I didn't like this product, but I realized I was using too much. Now I add just 1-2 drops to my normal product (a cream gel for my curly hair) and this adds just enough frizz control and shine to my other product, which provides hold. The bottle is small but it will last a long time if used this way. I can tell the days I forget to add it, my hair is more frizzy-- this really does help to control frizz and add a nice, light sheen and smoothness. Just know that a little goes a long way, and it's easy to add too much!

    L'Occitane Olive Express Eye Treatment

    Great for those prone to puffiness

    My eyes have a tendency to get puffy easily-- from allergies, or crying, or just stress. This product actually helps make some of that puffiness go away--really great when in a rush and don't want to look so tired! I love its feel and I trust the company, too. A good product.

    Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel

    great product, but pricey

    I received this as a gift, and I love it- great light coverage, very natural-looking, plus it's chanel! But I wouldn't pay almost $50 for it on my own. I have tried others for 10 dollars that are almost as good--not as good, but good enough. Still a great product if price isn't an issue.

  • Freeman Feeling Beautiful Pomegranate Sugar Body Scrub

    This scrub is a sugar scrub and it does smell really sweet, though I think I prefer more musky smells, but it's ok. The scrub is quite harsh and I found I get irritated skin if I use it too much--this is more of a once-a-week scrub for me. I wouldn't use it on my face for that reason but it does a good job with exfoliating legs before shaving.

  • Jason Soothing Aloe Vera Deodorant Stick

    I have a tendency to have sensitive skin around my underarms that gets worse with shaving. This is one of the only natural deodorant products I found that is also really soothing and won't irritate my skin. If you have sensitive skin, this is really worth a try.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends Natural Radiance Bronzer

    Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends Natural Radiance Bronzer

    nice hint of color for a good price

    This was my first try at using a bronzer and I'm very pleased. I was scared it would look fake and orange but the color blend here is just delicate enough that it really does look like I got a touch of sun, very authentic. And the price is great, plus I trust the Neutrogena brand. I was very happy with this product.
