  • Origins Sunny Disposition Bronzing Stick

    I love using this on days when I want to wear minimal makeup. I just apply this over tinted moisturizer and a little gel blush. It's easy to apply, blends easily, and looks very natural. The color is lovely, and it has a very flattering hint of shimmer.

  • Kiss My Face Spray On Sunscreen, SPF 30

    When I saw how oily this sunscreen was, I didn't think I would like it. However, it was really easy to apply without a lot of rubbing, and it didn't get sticky like most of the lotions I've tried. It probably wouldn't be great to use every day because it would get on your clothes, but for the beach or pool, it worked great.

  • Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

    This moisturizer smells great, but it wasn't quite potent enough for me. It spread easily and absorbed quickly, but I found that it wasn't moisturizing enough. My skin felt dry shortly after applying it. I have combination skin, and while the oil-free gel might work during the summer, it definitely wouldn't be enough for me in the dry winter months. It might work for someone with oily skin, but it wasn't for me.

  • Alba Botanica's Very Emollient Body Lotion Bronzing Formula

    This product was one of the worst-smelling beauty products I have ever purchased. I like Alba's other body lotions, so I was excited to try their bronzing lotion. Unfortunately, it smelled so overpoweringly awful that I ended up throwing it out. I'm not talking about the usual self-tanner fragrance--I use a lot of self-tanners and am totally used to that smell. The horrible odor of this lotion comes from the actual fragrance added to it to cover up the self-tanner smell. I can't even describe how gross it is. I held it up for my husband to smell, and he recoiled in horror. Worse still, it doesn't even work very well. I used it for several days before I tossed it, and I didn't notice any tanning effects (and I am very pale!). There are a lot of other products out there that work better and don't have a bizarre odor.

  • Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream

    This is one of the best hand creams I've tried. It feels really rich but sinks in quickly. It also has a fantastic citrusy fragrance that I love. I only wish it were a little less expensive--it's a fairly small tube for such a high price, so it's probably not something I would buy over and over. Still, it's a wonderful product if you dont' mind the price.

  • hairdo by Jessica Simpson 19

    I bought this on a lark because it was on clearance, and I really ended up liking it! The color was a perfect match to my hair color, and it blended in beautifully. It looks really natural and is a fun way to spice up my hairstyle for a night out.

  • Blow Faux Dry Shampoo
    3.0

    Blow Faux Dry Shampoo

    Disappointing

    I was excited to try this because it's non-aerosol, so I could easily bring it in my carry-on when I travel. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. The product was extremely difficult to dispense--I followed the directions and could barely get any powder to come out of the bottle. It seemed to clog up in the nozzle very easily, so I ended up having to shake the bottle violently in order to get any product onto my hair. It took forever to dispense enough powder to get the job done. It actually worked ok once I got it onto my hair, but it was such a hassle to use that I wouldn't purchase it again.

  • Befine Gentle Cleanser
    2.0

    Befine Gentle Cleanser

    Awful in so many ways

    First of all, this cleanser has a serious consistency problem. It is so thin and watery (literally, it is the consistency of water!) that it's hard to get in onto your face. I had to cup my hand so it wouldn't run out, then sort of splash it onto my face. Furthermore, the scent leaves something to be desired. Yes, it is minty...but it has a strange underlying scent that both my husband and I found unpleasant (sort of smells like tallow--gross!). It seemed to remove makeup effectively, but it was not gentle at all. It left my combination skin dry and tight. I would never purchase this again.

  • bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation

    I couldn't tell the difference between the matte and the regular

    I have been using bareMinerals for years, and I tend to get shiny in the T-zone, so I was really excited to try the matte version of the foundation. Unfortunately, I couldn't really tell much of a difference between the matte and the regular version. It's still a great product overall (much better than any other foundation!), but I was a little disappointed that it didn't live up to its oil-control claims.

  • Befine Warming Clay Mask

    I didn't care for this mask overall. The formula is too thick, making it hard to spread--even on a wet face, I felt like I was really pulling and tugging my skin as I applied it. I liked the warming effect, but I didn't care for the scent (it's kind of herbal: not awful, but not really pleasant). My face felt soft after I used it, but it left a weird film on my skin and on the floor of my shower. I wouldn't purchase it again.
