  • CoverGirl Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara

    I stood by Maybelline Full & Soft for years ,until I had some problems with flaking and clumping (Worried they changed their formula) so I tried this. In the past, I had lots of issues with Maybelline mascara and never was a fan, but figured I would try this product if it claimed specifically to give clump free lashes. It actually works! it gives my lashes good length and definition without the clumps. The product forumula and this brush makes it a clean application, unlike some goopy thick mascaras, and a couple sweeps on my lashes make them look great. Wears well all day. Will definitnely continue buying

  • Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil

    got a sephora sample of this cream after trying the plain argan oil with the dropper application. I love the consistnecy of this as the winter months are approaching.. It reminds me slightly of J&J baby creamy oil, but much lighter. I have not used it on my face because my super sensitive skin bigs out easily, but i love it on my hands and legs. It gives them a luminous glow from the hydration, without the synthetic shimmer that many lotion products have, Feels luxurious and mousturizing, although I would not buy it full size only becasue of the price tag... Ill stick to the basic J&J that I can get at walmart or traget for less than 10 dollars..

  • M. Asam Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream

    The consistency of this cream felt rich and luxurious... but maybe as a skin cream. I put this on my skin at nigt before bed and it seemed to sit on top of my skin, taking forever to sink in at all. This dosnt really work for me, as I have combonitation-to-oily skin and this thick cream was a little too much for my skin. I also did not notice any 'tightening' effect as of yet. I may give this to my mom to try and it may work to tighten more mature skin

  • Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum

    II am always on the search for products to strengthen and help grow out my long-ish hair. This product has a nice light smell and glides on easily through wet hair - i havent tried it on dry hair-. I usually need to blow dry my hair in order for it to dry shiny and stright, but after applying this, Ive let my hair air dry, throwing the blow dryer on just for a minute towards the end of the air drying process. My hair dried pretty straight, soft, and shiny. The scnet doenst really seem to hold in your hair, so if you dont liek the scent, it wont last anyways. I cant say Ive noticed my hair looking any stronger through, but I would continue to use this, as it doesnt seem to hurt my hair!

  • WEI East China Herbal Intensive Eye Pads

    I am on the never ending hunt to get rid of dark undereye circles. It was super exciting to receieve these eys pads to sampel from total beauty! I also suffer from a lot of sinus issues, which also effect my undereye skin and make my bags feel even darker and puffier. I put these on one morning before work and liked how soothing they felt and the refreshing scent. I would only recommend using these though if youre laying down or relaxing. I was up trying to start getting ready for work, and felt like these were moving around under my eyes, They also had a very thin tissue paper consistency so I felt like I had to keep readjusting them. I kept them on for about ten minutes, and when taking them off, noticed really no difference at all, which was disappointing. I had high hopes for these eye pads, but they didnt quite deliver.

  • Elysee YouthSpan Enviro-Shield Tinted Veil

    Ill first say that Ive only put this product on my face one time, so I cant attest to the skin benefits it may offer. I was given this as a sample to review and really thought the glass pot was cute. I was immediately confused by the color, appearance, and texture for something called a mineral veil. Im a bare minerals makeup kind of gal, so when i see 'mineral veil' i immeidately think of mare minerals transpararent light pressed powder that goes over makeup to set it. This veil came in liquid form, was a dark green color, and appeared shimmery. I first, never put glittery or overly shimmery products on my face so i tried it out on my hand. The color blended right into my skin tone, but did appear to leave a noticeable shimmer. I tried this product again, this time on my cheeks to see how it would change the appearance of my face. Luckily, It did not appears shimmery on my face, but it also didnt seem to do anything- i ddnt notice a change in tint or anything and I proceeded to put the rest of my makeup on as usual. I dont know if I would keep putting it on my sensitive skin, as Im afraid it might cause a major breakout.

  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

    I was really impressed with this sample I recieved from total beauty. I loved the pretty light pink metallic tube, but was taken aback when i first saw the application brush. the bristles looked big and bristly, and I was afraid it would be a nightmare. Luckily, one swipe of this on my eyelashed really darkened them and made them appear much longer and fuller. At times, there would be a little clumping and smudging, but it wasnt usually a problem. I do think, however, that the "they're real" mascara (benefit i think) does abit of a better job at grabbing the lashes and lengthening and darkening. But overall, I liked the way it looked and apepared pretty natural

  • Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial

    I recieved this product as a asmple to review and loved the packaging and fancy, expensive look of the tube. Presentation aside, I have veryy sensitive skin that will break out with any change in my routine so I was very hesitant to use it on my face, especially t zone. I tried this product on my hands and cheeks, as they are much less sensitive than my t zone. The product looks almost like cement coming out, but it smoothes onto skin nicely and has a nice light almost sandy texture, not an abrasive scrubbing exfoliant feel (think st ives apricot scrub-ouch!). I am going to try to slowly intoduce it to the rest of my face, because after using on my cheeks and hands, they felt smoothe and soft.

  • Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    I recieved this product as a sample, and it soon became a staple in my purse. It has a rich texture, but the cream is light in that it would make u feel like you just rubbed body butter all over your hands like some creams feel- this absobs into skin quickly and effortlessly and keeps hands soft. The scent is light and its a great go-to cream in the winter months. Usually, i throw this on in the morning before leaving the house after my morning wash routine. Feels super hydrating!

  • Benefit The Porefessional

    I wasnt sure how this product was going to hide pores and was a bit of a disbeliever. I was impressed with the smooth texture, it glides and blends very easily into skin and actually does a good job at camoflauging. I dont have huge pores, but it worked well for my smaller pores and had a nice, matte finish. Really love the texture and feel like it could work well on any type of skin, as it seems even dry skin would flake with this silky cover
