    Selsun Blue Dandruff Shampoo

    It Tingles To Let You Know It's Working

    With this brutal winter, my head's been itchy like a case of chicken pox, well anyway, I picked up Selsun Blue and gave it a try. I had immediate relief. It worked so effectively that I didn't have to use it again for another four weeks. It has a strong medicated smell, but that's what the dry irritated skin on my scalp needed.

    ModelCo Luminosity Highlighting Serum

    This Product is Incredible

    This product is expensive, but well worth the money. This is one of my favorite and best tools in my make-up arsenal. Since it is pricey I don't always use it. I save it for when I have to attend a special event or just have a feeling I may be running into that cute guy in the neighborhood. There are a lot of illuminating products out there and many of them give your face that sparkly Halloween look, but not this one, it looks natural . I usually use it on my cheekbones and under my eyes and it lights my face up, like there is literally a light on it. Your face looks refreshed. You look younger. Every time I use this product I get comments like, "your make-up looks good" or "your skin looks really good". When I can't get anymore out of the container with the brush, I get a Q-Tip and dig it out. More people need to know about this product. You will be hooked.

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Delicate

    This is a light lip gloss for when you are on the go. It adds a touch of color and shine to your lips and isn't too heavy. Try it at the gym.

    Neutrogena Deep Moisture Body Cream

    Butter Body Cream Brings Some Comfort

    I've used some pretty powerful butter body creams in my day and I have to say this one is okay. This is not a thick butter body cream though, which I prefer. I used it once and probably will not buy it again, my legs get very dry in the cold weather and I need a heavy butter cream at night, this just isn't it. Compared to other body butter creams I have used this product felt more like a moisturizing lotion. If your skin is not super dry than this would probably work as a butter cream for you.

  • Chanel Pro Lumiere Correcteur Professional Finish Concealer

    This has become one of my favorite beauty products. I was torn between buying this concealer and another popular brand, but decided to go with this one based on a Total Beauty Review. This is the First Concealer that has ever been successful with covering up and brightening my dark under eye circles. Finally!! I have olive skin and my under eye circles are very dark, plus I have hyper pigmentation in my skin from past pimples. This concealer just hides and brightens everything. Plus it never builds up under my eyes or settles into the fine lines near my face. It's almost sheer yet brightening. I am even able to wear my eye cream underneath the concealer and there is no build up. I love this product. I recommend it to everyone I know. For me after trying dozens of concealers that have not worked, it is worth the price. My best buy of the new year for sure.

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

    What I really like about this product is that it is not as greasy as some other tinted moisturizers out there, plus it has spf protection, moisturizing properties and foundation coverage. I don't like to use foundation so this is an ideal product because it gives me some coverage without being thick on my face, plus it is a great light moisturizer. I wish it provided a tad bit more coverage and I think it falls short because of the color range of this product. I use the second to darkest shade, it's not a great match for my olive skin tone (I wish it was a little darker), but it is not too light as to make me look washed out. The darkest shade is too dark. If you buy this product, my opinion is to go with a darker shade than you usually would. I do use this product daily and sometimes I mix it with my Aveda tinted moisturizer, which is a darker shade. It is a good product, but not as great as it's made out to be, plus it is not cheap.

  • Too Faced Lash Injection

    Too Faced Lash Injection

    The Novelty Wore Off Quickly

    When I first bought this mascara I was all excited about it. I thought it had tremendously lengthened and plumped my lashes so much more than some drugstore and high-end brands I've used, but I think I was only deluding myself because I wanted to justify how much I spent on it, plus I liked the brush. My lashes look good with this mascara, maybe marginally longer and blacker compared with other brands, but the benefits don't outweigh the negatives. This mascara has a very strong odor like paint and I always felt a little nervous about putting something with such a potent chemical smell next to my delicate eyes. I know most people love mascara that is waterproof, I am not one of those people, I don't like having to use industrialized strength make-up remover around my eyes to remove my eye make-up. I like the kind of mascara that I can at least partially get off with warm water, well this mascara is not that type, even when I used two types of eye make-up remover I still never felt like it was completely off, plus I noticed that I lost eyelashes when trying to get this mascara off. I don't recommend this product.

  • Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream

    This product blew me away. I am used to using very high-end expensive skin care products on my face, but a student's mother who is an Avon representative asked me to try out some products. I decided to give anew a try. Wow! If you want to use a product and see results over night without loosing all the cash in your wallet this product is for you. Every night I apply it to my face with anticipation of what my skin will look like in the morning. It absolutely reduces the size of my pores, evens out my skin tone, gives me a glow, makes my skin appear more firm, reduces acne scarring and reduces acne. I can't really make an accurate assessment as to whether or not it diminishes wrinkles because I don't really have any yet. Be aware that Avon has three Anew lines for different age ranges, this fits my age range because I am 35. I recommend this product to everyone I know. I am going to try out the anew rejuvenate day skin cream too. It is a guilty pleasure that you don't have to feel guilty about. This is by far one of the best skin care products I have ever used.

    N.V. Perricone Face Finishing Moisturiser

    Thirst Quenching Moisturizer for your Skin

    I'm an avid user of skin care products, high-end to low-end and this product is well worth the investment. It's totally enriching, but not heavy at all. I saw immediate results the first week I used this product, my skin texture was softer and my face looked refreshed. I love to use it during the winter months because Perricone Face Finishing Moisturiser absolutely stops dry skin on my face and it's not greasy or heavy like other winter creams. If the price is too high, just use it at night, even if you only use it at night, you will still get results because the product is that good. Personally, I get the largest jar because I love it so much. The simple jar is best, there's no pumps, no unnecessary twists and you don't have to worry about the dispenser breaking. I love all of Perricone's products and I always recommend this product first to new users. Go For It! You won't regret it!!
