    Essie Nail Polish

    so many fun colors!

    I love that there is such a wide variety of trendy colors to choose from. Also, the polish lasts pretty long without chipping. Some lighter colors that I own take a few coats, but I suppose that's expected with almost any brand of nail polish. From my experience, I won't have to repaint my nails for about a week if I use a top and base coat with this brand.

  • Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication

    Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication

    can be great if used correctly

    This can work really well if you have acne that doesn't require an Rx or dermatologic care (if you do not have cystic or nodular acne). However, it can really dry out/ irritate your skin, especially sensitive skin if not used correctly. I would recommend using it with a gentle cleanser and using it sparingly to begin with to see how your skin handles the product.

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

    I've been using Bath & Body hand soaps for quite a while, and I absolutely love them. All of the scents are so fresh and pleasant, and there is a HUGE variety of scents to choose from. I wish that they made varieties that were non-antibacterial, as that's not necessary if a person spends enough time and washes his or her hands correctly.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash

    fairly good facial cleanser

    I had used this for quite a while, until the salicylic acid formula started to irritate my sensitive skin. It does help to reduce oil, but can dry out your skin too much...so make sure to use an oil-free moisturizer in addition to this cleanser! The scent isn't my favorite, but it's probably not good to wash your face with highly-perfumed washes anyway.

  • L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

    This may be one of my least favorite kinds of mascara. I really did not enjoy the "tubes" that it creates around lashes; they seemed to flake off more easily than regular mascara. I didn't find that it made my lashes significantly longer or fuller either, so I think that I'm going to stick with regular one-step mascara from now on!

  • CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    long-lasting color

    Pros: the color last super long and is very simple to apply...it's just like coloring your lips in with a marker Cons: Can be too bright if not applied correctly, and the color can bleed. I have a bright pink color that I need to be very careful with not applying too heavily, or it looks fake-y. I highly recommend using a clear lip liner or lip balm before applying the stain in order to prevent the color from bleeding as well! If you don't like the heavy/sticky feeling of lipstick or gloss, this is a great alternative

  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

    I LOVED the scent of this shampoo, but I feel that I set my expectations too high for the amount of hydration that it would add to my hair (I have wavy hair that needs constant moisture and frizzes easily). It did seem to weigh down my hair, as I felt like I had less volume while using the shampoo and conditioner set.

  • Secret Scent Expressions Invisible Solid

    I've tried a few different scent varieties and they all smell great to start off with, but I felt like I needed to reapply at least once throughout the day. It does also leave white marks on clothing (which most deodorant seems to do anyway). I didn't feel like the antiperspirant was strong enough for me, even though I do not sweat very much.

  • OPI Nail Lacquer

    OPI Nail Lacquer

    Love it!

    Probably one of my absolute favorite brands of nail polish. They always come out with the cutest, trendiest colors for each season. They also last fairly long without chipping and don't take more than two coats.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    This is a pretty good mascara, but I have tried others that I would prefer to use. This mascara seemed to make my lashes really stiff and wasn't extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It didn't clump much either, but I found the ridiculously large size of the tube and applicator slightly annoying.
