    Dr. Brandt Flexitone BB Cream

    better than expected

    I recieved a large sampel of this in the Sephora sun safety kit and was excited to try it because i love BB's and loved the spf. I was kind of shocked when i squeezed it out onto my fingers and it was a garish cement-looking color with a pretty watery consistency. I was definitely skeeved, but tried it on anyways. Surprisingly, the color did blend pretty well wth my tone, gave me a bit of color (ive heard some ppl say it makes them look orange, not the case for me). It blends well and has a light to medium coverage, so i usually pair it with concealer. Overall, i like the product, but try to shake it up a little before applying or esle it can come out super watery

  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    I was so happy to get sent this deoderant to review for total beauty. I usually stick to Secret solids, because i feel that they have more staying power, but Ive been impressed with this one so far! I like the dispenser and it goes on eeally smoothly and dries into my skin in seconds! I never get those deoderant streaks on my shirt when im wearing this. Although the scent is lightly fragrant when applying it, it seems to blend right in and i cant smell anything soon after applying it. its kept me dry on a few 90 degree NYC days!

  • Lush Sea Spray Volumizing Hair Mist
    8.0

    Lush Sea Spray Volumizing Hair Mist

    Great..but not volumizing

    I bought sea spray after reading many reviews about it . Its sold as a volumizer, but i noticed it giving my hair no added volume. In fact, it seems to weigh hair down a little but. After using it, my hair looked a little dirtier; this spray works more like a hairspray than volumizer. I used it again to spray and set my curls after using my curl wand and it really helped keep my curls in place. Actually, the main reason i love and use the product is the smell; it has a beachy tropical smell to it. I had gone out with a couple guys one afternoon and they couldnt stop smelling my hair, telling me i 'smell like vacation'. Its an added bonus ;) I wish the bottle was larger.. Also, It seems the best way to use this is not to spray directly on your hair, but rather on your hands and then scruch it into hair. When you spray directly, it gives it more of a greasy hair look. It also makes your hair a little firm- like a hairspray would

  • Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

    I had a great experience with the light color, but i went back looking for something with a little more color that could hopefully add a bit more coverage to blemishes and undereye circles. I got it in the next shade up and it made me look ridiculous! I also dont like the smell of this product and it is a little thick. I have tried three different BB creams since Garnier, and i prefer them better than Garnier. I would continue to use it in the lighter shade, but it just doesnt give great coverage

  • Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    I am happy with the job Maybelline has done with their BB cream. I have tried a few in the past, and this is definitely a top runner. The color blend is close to my complexion and its a very lightweight coverage. Only complaint was that I wish it covered up a little better; I still feel like im using a lot of concealer for my eyes and cover up on blemishes. I do like it for nights Im out on the town all night long and want that additional coverage.

  • Bonne Bell Eye Style, Precise Liner

    I am always using Maybelline and CoverGirl soft pencil eyeliners but am constantly disappointed by the smudging and ending up under my eyes.. My little sister turned me onto this product and at first i was super skeptical because i associate bonnebell with kids makeup. Alas, this product is sooo much better than any of those other overpriced liners and is so cheap! It applies so easily, stays in place all day, and i have no problems with smudging. I also have been able to apply in on my top lid with no problem; usually with other eyeliners it looks so fake and uneven, but for some reason, this always comes out perfectly. I have gotten a lot of compliments on how pretty my makeup is since I started using it. total convert!

  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture

    I never thought of lotion as a spray on product before, and I defintiely found some pros and cons to this product. I love Vaseline products, especially their lotions, but I feel this lotion wasnt as intensive and mousturizing as some of their other products. The mist felt very lighteight and was easy to spread on your body, but after you had the mist on your hands to rub into your skin, its hard to spray more because my hand kept slipping off the spray part. It did make my skin very soft and sunk quickly into skin, unlike heavier lotions from a jar. I LOVE the concept of the spray bottle, its so much easier to travel with and throw in your bag. Its definitely more of a body mousturizer than a hand lotion, it ddnt do too much to soften hands. I plan to take it on vacation with me becasue its so much easier to throw in a suitcase than a bottle of lotion. One other iffy part was the scent; maybe its in my head because of the spray, but i felt at times like it smelled like a mix between self tanner and insect repellant. It wasnt a horrid smell, but just not the nicest. Again, it may just be in my head becasue im used to spraying on repellant and tanner, so i could just be imagining it based on my previous experiences with spray cans! Overall, i like it and its super easy to apply, but i feel like a bottle of lotion is a better value and mousturizes better.

  • Vaseline Total Moisture Body Lotion

    I recieved this as a mystery lotion to review. It had a light, pleasant scent and a thin consistency. It went on smooth, but left this weird tacky sticky feeling on my skin. It didnt exactly make my skin feel soft or smooth, but just felt like it was laying on top of my skin. I am a die-hard St Ives lotion girl, and trying this product did not impress me at all.

  • Olay Quench Daily Lotion

    If it werent for the tacky, teeny bopper sparkle it leaves all over my body, i would have loved this product. The scent is nice, the lotion is very mousturizing, but i feel like a child playing dress up when i am covered in shimmer. The shimmer gets everyhwere, its all over my hands and whatever i touch, and it needs to be scrubbedddd off! Waste of my money

  • Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion

    i got some samples of this from a relative and reallyyy loved the creamy luxuriousness of it! It is a cream, but has almost a baby oil looking finish to it when you put it on your skin. I love it on my legs during the summer with a skirt becasue it gives ur legs that shine without being oily. Can get a little sticky, though, especially in the summer, so be sure to really rub it in and let it dry! Not the greatest scent, but not offensive either
