I like this product especially for the smell. It doesn't really help with acne (at least for me it didn't) so that's why it got 7 stars. Just a pretty decent/average body wash.

As a lot of people have said, do NOT get this with the intent of using it for your hair. I mixed this up when I bought this with the garnier fructis triple nutrient spray (the one that has two different layers that you shake up), which I love. This product is definitely not great for your hair. I used a very minimal amount, and it made my hair look like a greaseball. I sprayed maybe two, three sprays, one on each side and one on the back, and the oil made my hair clump together. It did not look shiny, it looked oily, and I would not recommend this for your hair. It doesn't have that great of a smell either. If you're looking for a nice shine in the hair, I would recommend the other garnier product that I mentioned.

This lip gloss isn't too sticky, and it has decent color payoff. The $18 price tag isn't something I would pay for, so once I finish the sample that I received, I probably won't be purchasing it again. There are a lot of drugstore lip glosses out there that perform better and are just a fraction of the price. For this price, I would choose the buxom lip glosses over this one.

Shiseido Benefiance Eye Crema
Pretty good as far as eye creams go. I got a little sample of this to try out for a few weeks. I believe it was point one seven fl. oz, and it has lasted me FOREVER. A little bit of this stuff does the trick, and smooths over my undereye area with ease. I have noticed a little less fine lines in my under eye area, but not drastic enough to think that this is an amazing product. I don't think it's worth the high price tag that comes with it, and I will be sad once I finally finish my little sample. I'm hoping I can find an eye cream that's just as good without having to pay as much! I only use this eye cream at night because it leaves a funny looking sheen under the eye that makes it look like you've rubbed vaseline on your face.

Not what I hoped
I have some serious under eye circles as well as some fine lines under and around my eye area, and I didn't notice that this product made any difference to them in the weeks that I've used this. That said, this did help with the puffiness in my eyes and has a pleasant cooling sensation because of the little metal ball that applies the product. It's very refreshing. I find that I have to use this at night because when I rub my undereyes, the product sort of peels off like a face mask that hasn't dried yet. So I use this at night and wash it off in the morning.

I will never, ever, ever buy another top coat again. I was really hesitant in buying the seche vite top coat, as it is pretty darn expensive. I think these go for like 8-10 dollars. But I decided to give it a try when I found it on sale for five dollars at a nail polish outlet near my town. And it is AMAZING. Not only does it dry super fast, it makes your nails look super shiny and sleek. Usually when I use different top coats, I'm still hesitant about touching them to see if they are dry cuz often, I'll find that they're not and when touched, they'll shift the nail polish around. But not this one. I usually paint one hand and then the other, but by the time I'm done with the other hand, the first hand is already dry! It cuts my nail routine down by a lot, and it makes it a lot easier. Hands down the best top coat I've ever tried. Plus, I've had my bottle for a while now, and it hasn't gotten gloopy like a lot of other polishes do. I would definitely pay full price for this! (Although recently, I saw it on sale for $6 at Ulta and I stocked up on a couple more of these! )

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I love this powder! So much that I have multiple of these in different shades to match my skin year round. Add up the cost of what I paid for like 5 of these things and it would still be less that what you would pay for one high end setting powder. AND this works just as well, if not better, than all those department store brands! This powder is absolutely amazing. It definitely helps keep my face a lot less oily than if I had used any other powder. I work at a restaurant, and my face easily gets greasy and sweaty from running around through the hot kitchen and delivering food to tables. But use this before my shift, and I am still relatively matte by the end of my shift. The color selection is reasonably good, there are....5-7 shades, I believe, as well as a translucent one that doesn't have color. These are also excellently priced, at around 5 or 6 dollars apiece. But you can also do what I do and buy them when they're BOGO 50% off or have coupons, and they become extremely cheap. Rimmel itself is also a relatively dependable brand with a lot of good products. One last thing that I can say about this powder is that it doesn't tend to cake up on my face. A lot of powders that I have used in the past would make the lines under my eyes show or just be very NOTICEABLE on my face, but this is excellent at staying put. Definitely check this product out if you haven't already!

Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer
I am in LOVE with this product. I had finally decided to try it out after walking past it in stores for a couple of years. I finally decided to give it a try this summer, and so far, it's going great. At first, I thought it wasn't working, because it is definitely subtle. Also, I wasn't using this everyday, I was using it maybe every other day or ever 3 days, and I wasn't getting results. I decided to start using it everyday and that's when I definitely started to notice the nice color that my skin had built. This product definitely makes me a couple of shades darker than I actually am, and it evens out my skin tone. It doesn't have a nasty self tanning smell, the smell is actually quite pleasant. There's something that's almost fruity to it. I would recommend this if you are not ready to self tan just yet (like I am!), but you want a little more color for the summer or year round! I wouldn't recommend this if you are looking to get noticeably tan right away, because for me, it took a few days for me to notice the slightly tanner color I was turning. Overall a great product, and I am gonna keep using this for a while. This product is very affordable and can be found at a number of different drugstores and retailers like target and walmart. I've also seen a lot of coupons for this brand in the weekly ad that I get! I've also heard that if you get one shade up, it'll help! For example, my shade is actually the light to medium one, but I decided to purchase the medium to dark one, just so that it'll make a bigger and more noticeable effect on my skin. I use this with the matching facial moisturizer so that my whole body and face will gradually tan. :)

I loveee my Gardenia perfume rollerball from ipsy last month! It has a very floral scent, there's no question about whether there are any other scents mixed in, it's pretty much straight up floral. I also love that this lasts really long, and a little bit of this goes a long way. I would definitely be interested to see if this brand has any other scents that I would be interested to try.

I really, really like this blush. I got a couple of these on clearance, and I'm absolutely in love with them! I have the ones called flamingo and melon. Flamingo is a bright pink color, and melon is a more mauvy, darker rose shade. I like both of these. The color isn't incredibly pigmented, but it makes it easier to just put it on your brush and blend it out on your cheeks for a quick look. I also really love the sleek packaging that this product has. When you have as much makeup as I do, it makes you really appreciate it when products are small and more compact. I use these quite often, and I haven't noticed the "dip" that shows how much you've used. It still looks like they're in pretty good shape. I really wish that sonia kashuk would come out in more colors! this is definitely something that I would buy more of I had more choices.
