    Head & Shoulders Citrus Breeze Shampoo

    Good but only for a little while...

    I suffer from dandruff and oily hair and after trying this product, this did make my hair feel shiny and light. At first, I thought this was great. However, it didn't treat my dandruff at all. Even worse, after about three uses, it caused my scalp to itch like CRAZY! My scalp became very dry and it caused me to rigorously scratch my head. I've stopped using it ever since. Ugh! I'm never going back.

  • Alba Moisturizing Cream Shave
    1.0

    Alba Moisturizing Cream Shave

    Only time Alba has disappointed me.

    I always hear positive reviews about Alba products and so I decided to try out this cream shave since it guaranteed to be "moisturizing" and reduce "risk of nicks, cuts, and irritation". Well after the few times I've used it, I can honestly say it was a disappointment. First off, it doesn't lather well like other shaving creams or gel. It lathers more like water lotion or conditioner. The creamy lather may just be a personal preference of mine though. Second, it becomes invisible when you lather it, don't you want to see which part you've shaved when you dab this on? Third (and most important), it didn't keep my skin from irritation at all! The cream was too greasy (again, like water lotion) and each touch of the razor blade led to irritation. Plus, my skin dried up (so much for protection "against drying of chafing"). I'm never using this product again. My advice? Stick to other shaving creams or gels like Skintimate, Aveeno, or Gillette Satin with Olay (HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!). They are more reasonably priced, all lather well, leaves skin feeling soft, and won't leave it irritated.

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo

    I started using this product during winter on the east coast. It was extremely cold and it left my thick hair dry and static. Immediately after one use of this (along with its matching conditioner), it worked wonders with my hair!!! I hardly straighten my hair but after using this product, it feels like my hair was straightened by a professional hairdresser! My hair felt smooth and it looked shiny! While walking in the extremely cold snow, I would have to roll up my hair into a bun and tuck it under a hat, but I soon as I put my hair down, it maintains it straight, shiny, and smooth look! I received compliments from friends about my hair (they'd even touch it) and they'd ask if I straightened it. Haha I'd say "Nope!" and tell them about this shampoo and conditioner! This was the best shampoo I used during the wintertime. Now that I live out west and it's warm, I stopped using it because it makes my hair feel "too" hydrated and I switched to a lighter shampoo. But for you winter people out there who have NO time to prep your hair and need an intense smooth down, I HIGHLY recommend this product!

  • Keri Nourishing Shea Butter Lotion

    Maybe it's just me, but I actually had a good experience with this lotion. During the summer, it gave my legs a pleasant glow. It felt like this lotion was mixed with oil. It left my body (which suffers from psoriasis) moisturized and hydrated. While this lotion was good to my body, it obviously was not to most reviewers. I'd say it's a hit or miss with this lotion.

  • Neutrogena Body Oil

    I bought the large version of this and I immediately put it after I take a shower (I even mix it with my lotion). It makes my body feel sheer and smooth after use and it absorbs well. Throughout the day my body feels properly moist and dewy! No matter what the season is, this oil will moisturize your body right (not too greasy, dry, or oily, just right!). If you use this during the summer, it will give your body a glowing look (especially your legs!). The smell is also very pleasant and while a little of it stays on your body, it doesn't conflict with perfume or body (if you're the type to put that on as well). My boyfriend also suffers from dry skin and this makes his body feel soft and smooth. So, also perfect for guys! I highly recommend this lovely product to everyone of all skin types!!!

  • C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve

    C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve

    Little case, big impact!

    I started using this product for my lips after reading all of the comments about it. I was right to do so because it's been so amazing! I love the rose smell it has on my lips, the smooth feeling it has, the tint it leaves, and how glossy it makes my lips look! After a while, it wasn't just for my lips anymore! During the wintertime, my face has some dry patches. I dabbed some of this salve in those patches and they were gone! I also used this on my dry hands and it left them moisturized! I wish it came in a large bottle so I could use it all over my body. Such an amazing product! Leaves my lips and skin moisturized!

  • Carmex Original Carmex Stick

    The product is great as far as moisturizing chapped lips is concerned. It has a medicated smell, which I'm not a big fan of. However, if that's not a big deal to anyone, it's a great product!

  • Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub

    This cleanser will make your skin feel clean and ready for the day. It smells fresh and the scrub exfoliates well, which will brighten your skin! I took out two stars because it didn't do much as far as minimizing pores but still a great buy for those who need a pick-me-up in the morning and a refreshing cleanse after a long day from work.

  • Nivea A Kiss of Moisture Hydrating Lip Care SPF 4

    I started using this product and it leaves my lips hydrated and smooth. I used to have dry patches on my lips but that's gone now! This product also gives your lips a nice glossy look; perfect before applying lip stick. It also has a pleasant smell.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion
    10.0

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion

    Best for people with oily skin!

    I gave this product to my boyfriend, who had very oily skin and was prone to mild acne. He says he loves how the lotion absorbed in his skin right away (unlike the Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer that left an oily film on his face). Throughout his use, he says that since he began using this lotion, his skin has been balanced (not too oily and not too dry). Two months after using this product, the redness and acne in his face cleared up. So awesome! This is highly recommended for people with oily skin. DRY AND COMBINATION SKIN people BEWARE! I tried this product myself (I have combo skin) and while it did absorb, it left my face too dry. If you need moisture in your skin, this may not be the right product for you.
