  • Boots No7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturizer

    I bought this brand with a couple others to see which tinted moisturizer would work the best for me. Out of the drugstore brands I chose, this one was the overall best. I found that this moisturizer offered more coverage than the others I tried, but fair skinned girls beware... the colors are very dark! I have olive skin and the medium shade was too dark on me! I do wish that they offered a bigger range of shades so it could match a range of skin tones. I like that there is minimal shimmer in the formula, so it leaves you looking dewy and fresh faced. It moisturizes well, but my only other con is that I wish it would dry faster. I had a wet feeling on my face for longer than I would have liked. Other than that, I still love Laura Mercier the best, but I will use this as an alternate! You can't beat the quality for the price.

  • Carmex Healing Lotion

    I was so delighted to hear that Carmex was coming out with moisturizers... I just knew that they would be perfect. AND THEY ARE! The lotion is the perfect formula... not too greasy and leaves me feeling so moisturized and super smooth. I have severely dry skin (especially on my knees and elbows) and it leaves my most troubled areas feeling like no other lotion has been able to... and it has healing power! I love the smell of the lotion, and at $5.99 you can't beat the price!

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    Best Value for Makeup Remover!

    I love this makeup remover. I previously used Lancome, but I switched to Neutrogena because it was easier for me to grab quickly at the drugstore. I thought it did the job just as well as Lancome and for a fraction of the price. It removes my mascara and eye makeup with ease. I pour a small amount onto cotton rounds and hardly have to rub to get my makeup to come off. I love that this remover is fragrance free and oil free. I have dry skin, but this remover does not leave my face feeling oily... just soft and squeaky clean! I don't see myself ever switching from this product!

  • Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner

    THIS IS THE BEST CONDITIONER YOU WILL EVER BUY! I live in Houston, Texas where the humidity is always high. My dry/frizzy/wavy hair is obviously not ideal for this weather and finding a shampoo and conditioner combo that will tame my hair in any scenario has not been an easy task. I usually had to straighten my hair to make it look even remotely presentable which left my hair unhealthy with tons of breakage. After using the Moisture repair shampoo my hair is silky, smooth and healthy whether I straighten it or let it air dry and be wavy! I'm in love!

  • Moroccanoil Treatment

    Moroccanoil Treatment

    Best of the Best!

    I have tried other Argan oil treatments, but none have even come close to MoroccanOil. This stuff is AMAZING. I live in Houston, Texas where the humidity is high, and I have wavy/frizzy/dry hair. I have been waiting for a product like this to save me from my bad hair days. My hair is long and I use about a dime size... a little goes a long way with this stuff! It makes my hair soft, shiny, and most importantly keeps my ends healthy. Not to mention, it smells great! This does not make my hair oily at all, but then again, I have dry hair. I know that there are cheaper similar versions on the market right now, but I have tried many of them and none impressed me like MoroccanOil. I think it is well worth the money spent, and I will buy it again and again!

  • E.L.F. Essential Eye Shadow Brush

    I bought this brush at Target on my lunch break because I left my make-up at home and needed to buy temporary cheap make-up and brushes quick before a client meeting! At only $1.00 a piece, this was my obvious choice. When I used the brush for the first time I was so pleasantly surprised at how soft it felt on my eyelids, and it worked just as well as the brushes I normally use. I have held on to it, and now it is my go-to brush! Still to this day, it is in perfect working order, no bristles fall out, and it is still very soft. I should also note that I have animal allergies which restricts me from using brushes made of animal hair. I love that this is an affordable synthetic brush that can hold up just as good as more expensive brands on the market!

  • Smith's Rosebud Salve

    I absolutely love Smith's Rosebud Salve. It smells amazing, and gives the perfect rosy glow to my lips, but the best part is how smooth and moisturized my lips feel while wearing it. I have never found a more perfect balm. I typically only use it on my lips, but it can be used on elbows, knees and dry patches anywhere. I use the squeeze tube it comes in because I am a germ-o-phobe, but I definitely think you get more product in the tin! I make sure I have this on me AT ALL TIMES!

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

    I started using this product because I have VERY dry skin. I had only ever used powders because I did not like the feel of foundation on my skin... however, I started noticing that my skin looked flaky and dry when just using powder. I was recommended the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer by more than person, and I figured that since I had only heard great things about it, I should give it a shot. I am very happy I did. It has really helped with the flakiness of my skin. It looks and feels much smoother and has a glow to it that I didn't get with powder. It does offer very light and natural coverage, so if I have a big event or just want to look more "done-up" I will dust loose powder over it for a more finished look. In general, I love the amount of color it adds, and it gives me a more even skin tone! I would say that if you have oily skin, definitely go for the oil free version. My skin is very dry, and sometimes when wearing this product I feel like my skin needs blotting.

  • Maybelline New York Define-A-Lash Washable Lengthening Mascara

    I keep seeing bad reviews on this mascara, but I have had a great experience using this product! I have never gotten so many compliments on my lashes as I do when I wear this mascara. I ONLY used to wear DIOR Show and Lancome, but I switched as a challenge to find a drugstore brand that was just as good. I love that the mascara is not too thick or clumpy. It adds definition and length without bulk and that it what I love about it! The brush is not my favorite, and it is hard to get to my bottom lashes, but I love the formula so much that I can overlook it! I think it is a great value for $8.00.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Drying Lotion

    This product did not work for me. I followed the directions on the bottle which said to apply the solution on to trouble areas overnight, and wash off in the morning. I never shook the bottle. I NEVER noticed a change in my pimples. I used this product many times (I used the whole bottle because I hate to waste) and I never noticed a change. I even bought a second bottle thinking that maybe I had just gotten a bad batch the time before. It still did not work, and I ended up giving the second bottle away. I had many friends who swore by this product, but for me, it did not do the trick. I have dry skin, and very rarely break out. I would use it for the occasional pimple that would come up. It never dried out my skin and left my face looking essentially the same as it did before.
