    Pixi Correction Concentrate

    Great New Product

    Wow, the Pixi Correction Concentrate is great! I use just a little and the coverage is perfect, not too sheer and not too heavy. The consistency is creamier than other under eye concealers, which I really like because my under eye area gets pretty dry. The peach tone really cancels out the purple of my under eye bags. Plus there's an illuminating element that brightens up my eye area. And, at $12, it's a great deal! Love it.

  • Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

    Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

    I Love You, Beauty Flash Balm!

    I use this product as a makeup primer pretty much every day. It feels awesome going on, really refreshing, and gives my (very dry) skin a dewy look. And it makes foundation and concealer go on and blend beautifully. the only reason I don't give this product a ten is that I'm not sure how I feel about it as a "mask": it is moisturizing and refreshing, but I haven't seen any "tightening of facial contours". That said, this is the best primer I have ever used. Love it!

  • Pantene Pro-V Normal-Thick Hair Solutions Split End Repair Keratin Protection Creme

    I currently have seamless extensions and the ends of my hair can get really dry and frizzy. After receiving this product for review from TotalBeauty, I was hopeful that it would be an inexpensive replacement for my go-to "end taming" product, Kerastase's Elixir Ultime. Unfortunately, the Pantene didn't do anything for me, my ends were still dry and I didn't get the sleek and shiny look I get with the Kerastase. The Pantene obviously gets really good reviews, so I'm guessing that it just doesn't work well for my particular hair care needs. I'm giving it a neutral rating because there was nothing wrong with it, it just didn't work for me.

  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    The Best for Sensitive Skin

    This is the only skin cleanser that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. In my early twenties, I started getting eczema on my arms and legs and, when it's really bad, on my face! My dermatologist recommended this cleanser for me, and it really helps. It is so gentle, but still cleans effectively and is not drying. In my opinion, this is really THE cleanser for sensitive skin.

  • StriVectin Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles

    In my endless quest to rid my undereye area of puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines, I had a lot of hope for StriVectin. Unfortunately, after using it consistently for over six months, I didn't see any change. It's fine as an eye cream, I suppose, but very expensive if all you're looking for is a moisturizer. The search continues!

  • JOEY New York Pure Pores Blackhead Remover And Pore Minimizer Gel

    As other reviewers have noted, JOEY New York Pure Pores Gel smells kind of strange. It's also kind of messy while you're applying it, although it does dry fairly quickly like a gel face mask. I used up a bottle of this, and I didn't see any difference in my skin at all. I think it's about as effective as a basic gel mask that you might get at the drugstore, but significantly more expensive. All in all, it didn't do much for me.

  • Infusium Repair and Renew Leave-In Treatment

    When I was younger, I used Infusium's Leave-In Treatment to keep the ends of my hair healthy and smooth. My hair has gotten drier through my 20s, so I need a more intense conditioning treatment now, but I still use Infusium: I mix it with liquid self tanners to get a lighter glow. I learned that trick from an article on self tanners and now, if I find that a self tanner looks too dark, I mix 1 part Infusium to 1 part self tanner to lighten it up. I would recommend this product for either use, it's inexpensive and versatile!

  • Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder
    2.0

    Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder

    Too Much of A Good Thing?

    I can't use bronzer at all with my normal skin tone; I am really pale. However, as I've mentioned in previous reviews, I am something of a sunless tanning addict, and so I am sometimes more of a medium skin tone. Maybe I'm still on the pale side of medium, though, because I found Guerlain's Terracotta Bronzing Powder too be way too intense. I like to use a bronzer to highlight my cheekbones and across the bridge of my nose to give my face a "sun-kissed" look, but I couldn't get this bronzer to look natural. It was too dark, and I found it hard to blend. I've read so many good things about this bronzer, but it didn't work well for me.

  • GoSMILE Touch Up Mini

    GoSMILE Touch Up Mini

    Not As Good As a Toothbrush and Toothpaste

    Before I review GoSMILE's Touch Up Mini, I have to give full disclosure: I have had my teeth professionally whitened, so my teeth are very white to begin with. However, I do like to keep my teeth looking sparkly throughout the day, and I thought this product might be a good option for quick touch-ups at the office. After working my way through a couple of boxes, I found that, although they do give a slight minty-ness to breath, they can't compare to a good old toothbrush and toothpaste. I didn't think that they made my teeth any whiter, and they weren't as good at breath-freshening as just brushing my teeth. Pretty disappointing.

  • Estee Lauder Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder

    When my skin wasn't so dry and I could wear powder without it highlighting that dryness, this was one of my favorite products. It's has a very light texture so it doesn't sit heavily on the skin, and it gives makeup a polished finish. I still have this product on hand, and occasionally I will use it to set concealer on top of a blemish. It makes skin look naturally luminous, not overdone.
