  • Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    After spending huge amounts of money on this system, I believed I was going to have professional, safe results. I was VERY disappointed after a few uses, small red veins appeared on the sides of my nostrils. I never used the product harshly, but is not very sensitive to skin. It is rough, and unforgiving. I never had these lines before, and they are very bothersome even though you can only see them close up. I caution people to use this product: it can damage sensitive skin! It did not even clean my skin very well, I do just as fine with my hands, and that way I know I am not applying too much scraping pressure!

  • Crest 3D White Intensive Professional Effects Whitestrips

    Totally worth the money! I was very hesitant to buy this since it was so expensive. But I finally broke down and did. I previously had quite yellow teeth, I did not brush them so much when I was a kid so my teeth were just a yellow no matter how much I brush now. I used these strips for 2 hours every day for 7 days, and my teeth are actually white now! I am so surprised! During the treatment, I experienced some "zingers" (extremly painful tooth sensitivity), but they only last 10 seconds and only happened a handful of times. I have had no pain since stopping the treatment, and my teeth have stayed very nice. They have a money back guarantee, so if you don't get the results you wanted, you can always get your money back! So worth it to try, no risk! But if your teeth are very sensitive, you might want to look at using once of the less intensive whitening products, one with less of the whitening ingredient. But it might take longer, and you won't have THIS good of results.

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Daily Nourishment Leave‑In Conditioning Spray

    I have been using this for three years now, and I cannot go without it. I use every time I get out of the shower. If I ever run out and don't use this product, my hair is much more dull. And if I don't use over a period of time, my hair becomes more prone to breakage. This really brings moisture to my hair so it does not break. It also helps to de tangle my hair and helps the comb go through very easy. A great thing about this product is that it has heat protectant built into it, so I skip adding heat protectant if I blow dry my hair from wet. (I still use heat protectant if I straighten, of course..). Less chemicals on hair means less drying! I recommend this for daily, long term use.

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray

    I used tried two bottles of this product before giving up. This is a pretty expensive heat protectant, and I expected a lot more from it. Every time I used it on dry sections of hair, it smelled HORRIBLE, I almost thought it was burning along with my hair. My hair became very dull and lifeless once I was finished styling. There was no shine, and I had to add in shine products so my hair didn't look dead... It did not protect my hair and seemed to take all the moisture out of my hair. I would not recommend this product, you can get better results from cheaper products.

  • Garnier Fall Fight Fortifying Conditioner

    The fall fight system has really worked for me. I used this shampoo, along with the conditioner and leave in spray for more than 3 months. My hair stopped falling out! I used to have clumps of hair in the shower, but over time it got less and less. Then I ran out and switched to a different product. After a few weeks, the hair in the drain started reappearing and now its back to how it was!! I am going to go straight back to using this system when I buy my next shampoo. It also keeps my hair SO soft, shiney, and strong. It is a lot easier to style too, I don't think heat products do as much damage because my hair is so hydrated. I really reccomend trying this product for more than one month, you will see benefits over time, and don't stop!!!

  • Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2
    8.0

    Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2

    HUGE great product

    This bottle lasts forever, even if you get the smaller size. Using after washing your face, it gives a cooling effect. It is very soothing and smooth on your face. It removes any left over oil or make up missed during cleansing. And if I am really oily in the middle of the day I use it on my forehead and I am oil free! It smells really bad though, just light alcohol (like vodka, almost).. But that is because clinique adds no fragrances, so I much happier it smells like that then for them to add unnatural ingredients. Clinique really has your skin in mind when it makes products, and they never make you break out or anything. This really helps me control blackheads and acne without having to use any acne medication. Keeps my pores deep clean.

  • Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour

    Every time you use chanel nail polish, it is like having a manicure at a professionals. I only needed one coat after applying a base coat, then finishing with a shine top coat. It is always shiney regardless of using a top coat. The $28 price tag is a little steep though, you are paying for a name. But you also are paying for great quality polish. It can last up to two weeks! You won't have to use it as much, so in the end, saving money? :) The colors are great, and they have special limited edition shades sometimes. They have some colors which are 3 colors combine, and changes in the sunlight. They are very pretty polishes!

  • Essie Nail Polish
    8.0

    Essie Nail Polish

    Favorite Nail Polish

    Essie has the best colors of nail polish, and the latest trends. My personal favorite is Sand Tropez, a beige-brown-cream color that shines nicely. All the polishes are named very witty and cute things. Always shines a lot, especially if you follow with the Essie top coat. I sometimes have trouble with applying with right amount of polish, and it ends up very gooey. You have to do very thin coats, and normally do two coats total. It also chips in less than a week. And for the price, it is a little expensive. Bottles are 8-10$, when most drugstore nail polish is $2. Still, for the great colors and shine, it is worth it to buy a few.

  • Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Tinted Moisturizer

    I was very excited to try this as my first tinted moisturizer. However, I was very disappointed in the end. The first couple times I wore it, I enjoyed it. It felt very smooth and light on my face. But once it got even the slightest bit hot outside, I started to feel my face melting off. It was almost caked onto my face, and I did not apply that much. When I look in a mirror, it looks like a very heavy foundation which sits horribly on top of my skin. Did not blend into the skin well. I used the light to medium shade. The product was also very liquid-y. I tried applying powder to set it, and it made the cakeing even worse. At the end of the day wearing this tinted moisturizer, mt face was SO oily and the tint caked in patches on my face.

  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

    I use this daily when my skin is in normal condition. It's great- and lasts all day. very light feel. Sometimes can get oily- the gel is better for oily complexion.
