Here are all my reviews:
  • Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Fragrance Free Body Lotion

    I thought this did a good job of moisturizing but it left a funky feeling on my skin, almost like a "film" for lack of a better phrase. It also had a strange smell...another reviewer said "medicinal" and I agree.

    What's Not To Love?!

    I got a sample to try from Total Beauty and I have to admit to having forgotten how much I love Vaseline and how versatile it is. I've been putting it on my feet at night and pulling socks over it and my feet are now so soft! I also put it around my nose and eyes at night because of the endless nose blowing from my allergies. It also makes my lips really soft. There are just so many uses for this stuff....as another reviewer said, every home should have this!

  • TRESemme Nourishing Rituals Cashmere Touch Hydrating Serum

    First, this stuff smells amazing...just gotta throw that out there! LOL Its a non greasy serum containing argan & coconut oils and its smoothes the hair, reduces frizz, hydrates and all without weighing hair down. It can be applied to wet or dry hair and is perfect for either air drying or heat styling. It makes my very long, very curly but fine hair extra soft & silky and NO FRIZZ and doesn't weigh down the curls or pull them out. This product is a keeper!

  • L'Oreal Paris Everstrong Hydrate Shampoo

    L'Oreal Paris Everstrong Hydrate Shampoo

    Good for Those With Breakage Issues

    This product contains Keratin, which may cause hair to feel "rough or dry", if the user doesn't really need the Keratin for strengthening. The Ever line has several different product lines, by need, so when selecting one, make sure you are buying the right product for your hair type and for your hair's needs. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. I've been using the EverCreme cleansing conditioner, and I do like it, but it can build up on the hair and weigh it down. I wanted something to alternate with the cleansing conditioner and also to give my breakage prone hair some added strength. I picked this one and for my needs, this is pretty good. The moisture seems to counteract the drying effect of the Keratin and doesn't weigh my hair down. It feels soft and silky and I have less hair going down the drain now. LOL Personally, I like the scent of this product. However, the scents of all the Ever line products tend to be pretty strong so smell them first, to make sure you are okay with the scent.

    Chanel Les 4 Ombres

    Beautiful Shades, High Pigment

    I have a love/hate relationship with this product, meaning I love the product and hate the price. LOL I have several of these quads and they last forever because they're so highly pigmented that you only need a tiny bit on your brush to get the effect you want. While I normally don't like to spend this much money on a product, if its something I love, can't easily duplicate on the cheap or its something I use daily, I am willing to spend the extra on it. That's the case with this product and I use either Dunes or Prelude on a daily basis. For anyon who hasn't tried this product and wants to, either of the above color combos are great for daily wear and an excellent introduction to this product. Just be forewarned- you will be addicted and there is no 12 step program! LOL

  • New York Color Sun n’ Bronze Bronzer

    New York Color Sun n’ Bronze Bronzer

    Great Idea but Not Enough Pigment

    I have this in Hamptons radiance, which looked like the best one for my uber fair complexion. Unfortunately, due to the lack of pigment in this product, it ended up being just a nice highlighter. My friend had bought a deeper shade and I tried it and ended up looking like an oompa loompa. LOL I experimented and di find a way to use the product though. I apply a cram blsuh in peach, then swirl the brush through all the colors in this product and then apply it over the blush. It gives it a nice shimmer and sets the cream blush. I ahve also used all the shades as eye shadow as well.

  • Puristics Totally Ageless SPF 15 Daily Anti-Aging Sunscreen Lotion

    Puristics Totally Ageless SPF 15 Daily Anti-Aging Sunscreen Lotion

    Okay Product but Kinda Pricey For Performance

    I bought this for a seasonal transition day time lotion, for Summer to Fall. I liked the idea of it being very natural, with no added scent or dyes as I have very sensitive skin. I really like the pump container. The product itself is oil free and didn't cause me any irritation, breakouts or make my skin an oily mess. Its a nice product but I got mine on clearance at Walgreen's for a 1/3 of the standard retail price. For what this product is, and from its performance so far, I find it to be okay but definitely not worth what it normally retails for. I don't really see any true "anti-aging" benefits. Its just a nice basic moisturizer with the minimum of sun protection. You can find other products that are similar and just as effective for about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of this one.

  • Nubian Heritage Lavender & Wildflowers Hand Cream

    Nubian Heritage Lavender & Wildflowers Hand Cream

    Soft Hands That Smell So Good!

    I stumbled across this by accident this past weekend and am so happy I did! This hand cream's 1st ingredient is shea butter, need I really say more?! LOL Most of the remaining ingredients are all natural oils and butters. Its very thick and creamy going on, and I was sure it would take hours to soak in, but to my surprise, it soaked in very quickly and made my hands feel butter soft like baby skin. And the scent is to die for! This cream works as well, if not better, than products I've used retailing around $20.00 and all for less than $10.00 for a 4 oz tube and a little of this stuff goes a long way too. The line also makes other hand creams, lotions and shower gels/soaps and also ones with this scent formulation. I am going to try them and will write reviews for those as well.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Curl Calm Down Anti-Frizz Cream

    I have very long, very curly hair, and its fine in texture, but I have a lot of it. I have issues with so many products I've tried for curly hair that either leave my hair crunchy (OMG...I HATE that! UGH) or, they weigh it down and pull the curl out and leave it flat. This product doesn't do either. It moisturizes and defines my curls, without weighing them down, and leaves my hair silky and shiny. Its also great for 2nd and 3rd day hair as it controls the frizz and seems to re-energize my curls. My one main complaint is the pump....product tends to "creep" out as you pump it. However, for results like these, and a price much less than salon with better results, I can suck it up and deal.

  • Garnier Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment

    I am highly, highly impressed with this product. I've used much, much more expensive versions of hair oils that didn't even come close to being as effective as this product. My hair is very long, very curly, fine in texture but I have a lot of it. I use this product on my hair wet, dry, add it to my products when I wash my hair, as a leave in hot treatment oil, you name it. It makes my hair silky, soft, defrizzed, conditioned but all without any oily feel, doesn't weigh my hair down, absorbs immediately and is just an all around multifunction product. It also helps me curls form better. It has an almost Aveda like smell that is very pleasant. A little bit goes a long way so this sized bottle will last and last. Bonus tip- I've also used this on my cuticles and it was fabulous! LOL
