    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Life without Vaseline?!

    In my entire 28 years of living, I don't think there's wver been a time there wasn't a jar of Vaseline in my medicine cabinet. Vaseline is so upfront. No fancy packaging, no added colors and scents, just a tub of clear jelly that doesn't need bells& whistles for ppl to want to buy it. It speaks for itself. When I received a giant tub of it for a road test, I was in my glory. I love it for soothing chapped lips, dry skin, giving lashes some love wen there's no mascara around (desperate beauty junkie moments), and I wouldn't go one night without using my Vaseline to take off eye makeup. It works better than any product I've tried (from cheap to designer) and like I said, doesn't have all the added colors & scents that aren't necessary for the skin. Although some state it can be used as a salt scrub in the shower, i had a super tough time getting it to wash it off bcuz its consistency, and my shower drain wasnt too happy either :(. Otherwise, Will use this forever!

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

    Not sure if this product was definitely discontinued, i am using this product - I think its with the same name- but its definitely with the same packaging. I love the product and it has definitely improved the quality and look of my skin. I have had no recent cystic acne breakouts and alot if the discoloration in my skin has faded. Its almost sheer, but gives u a hint of buildable coverage and doesnt have any scent that your putting on your face.

  • Organix Thick & Full Biotin & Collagen Root Lift Spray

    Ive tried using this product a few times for a few reasons- I LOVE the scent of this shampoo and conditioner and wanted to have a follow up leave in product t okeep up the scent, and because i have pretty flat hair. Upon using it, I never notice any great volume boost, although the smell is great :) I usually just spray this in my hair before braiding it so I have some voume to my curls, but its hit or miss. I also feel like it leaves behind a 'sticky' product feeling, like I know theres something in my hair

  • Prada Beauty Candy

    I really kind of love this perfume. The packaging is simplistic but cute and it doesnt take up a lot of space on my tiny vanity stand. The smell is nowhere near as sugary sweet as Pink Sugar; this is a vanilla- cotton candy- cookie-marshmallow kind of sweet smell that is delicious. My only qualm is the staying power- I feel like once it is sprayed on my body, it doesnt stay there and I cant smell it through the day. It does stay well on clothes, so I tend to spray it after I dress, but even then, you need to be up cloooose to catch a whiff. Its also very pricey, so I only buy it as the gift set, which usually also gives u a lotion and a rollerball for basically the same price

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara

    I bought this on sale and was hoping for a great steal. There are definitely positives and negatives. I love the packaging and the bright color, and I think the gel formula is a unique idea with alot of potential. However, the bristles in the picture look much longer than they actually are; they are in reality very short and stubby and isnt perfect for lengthening purposes. At times, this does make my lashes look longer and fuller, but other times, the gel makes my lashes look like i put hair gel in them! They can tend to look mushed together and not separated. Also, i did not buy this in waterproof, and I assumed it would eaily wash off... NOPE! It takes about two washes and vaseline to scrub it off, and even then, I get black smudges all over my eyes when i wash my face the next morning. Its noce that the mascara lasts all day, but it makes me end up scrubbing my sensitive eye area multiple times at night! Im overall pretty happy with the product, and like that it holds a curl, but dont know if I will be buying it again

  • Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil

    Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil

    better than your average

    Was really surprised that a pencil could be used as a highlighter, becasue Im usually all about a highlighting and luminizing powder. This pencil is a cool concept tho, and helpful to spots like inner corners of the eye and under the brow. the pencil glides on smoothly-AS LONG as its well sharpened! It blends nicely, but does require you putting in the time to really blend it in and wam in into your skin, otherwise it can look a little cakey. What still kind of boggles me is that they advertise it as a highlighter and concealer.. like stating u can use it to cover up skin imperfections and dark undereye circles... but I thought it was a highlighter? I definitely would use it as a highlighter rather than a concealer. pleased with it, and would maybe consider purchasing again

  • Victoria's Secret Bare Bronze Collection Gleaming Self-Tan Body Tint

    I have used many self tanners and wasnt expecting much from this, but bought it at the semi annual sale and gave it a try on one leg. The color comes out pretty immediately, and I believe layers can be added to increase color. When compared to my bar leg, the leg with the tanner looked tanner, healthier, and had a glow. I dont love that there are sparkly particles in it, but its def good for going out when you dont want to look like casper. Does seem to take a bit of time to dry though, and I worry that the color may leak onto clothes, although it wasnt a problem when I first tested it out. so far so good

  • Paula's Choice C15 Super Booster

    Got a small sample suze due to the high price.. Mixed it in with the aloe that i use on my face at night. Unfortunately, the tiny bottle and my clumsy hands have causesd a couple spills, so I have lost most of the product on my dresser and floor, but I ddint notice too much improvement from the times I did use it. Its possible that with regular use it can be beneficial. I love PC products, and would recommend them to anyone

  • Paula's Choice Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner

    Just an update to my review below.. have been using the toner in conjunction with the CLEAR system, and my face looks GREAT! I usually use the toner morning and night after washing with the pore normalizing cleanser. My cystic acne is no longer a struggle for me and im able to leave the house in minimal makeup! you have nothing to lose by trying the product, I am definitely a lifetime member of the PC brand now! I just started using this product a few days ago after recieveing a sample from the company--- side note, the customer representative i chatted with online was AMAZING and so helpful to me and sent me a ton of free samples to try, which is the sign of a great brand- so i started this to use for my red, painful, inflamed cystic acne and after only a couple days, Ive already noticed great improvement in the redness, size, and pain of the acne on my chin. So pleased, and hoping it keeps up!

  • Paula's Choice CLEAR Regular Strength System

    for the past few years, I have battled painful, sore, cystic acne which made going out every day embarrassing. I couldnt leave the house without loads of product and cover up, yet would still have these giant, sore red lumps on my chin area. In desperation, i found the PC website and began reviewing their products. Ispoke online to a rep (their customer service is amazing!) and she sent me a free trial package. Although it took a few weeks to maybe a month for real changes to be noticed, I can now say my cystic acne struggles are pretty much gone! I can leave the house with minimal makeup and have had so much less trouble dealing with this skin! These products, when used in conjuction, can literally be life changing. Would recommend to anyone
