  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor
    8.0

    Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    Smooth and Silky

    I used this for the first time just as very cold weather broke where I live, so I was able to wear dresses and skirts for a couple of days. The 5 blades slide easily along all angles of my legs and gave me a super smooth shave. Notably smooth. I even made one of my girlfriends feel how smooth my leg was 12 hours after I had shaved it. She always make me feel how hairy her legs are, so she definitely got the winning end of the deal. I tend to shave my legs in a hurry as I am seemingly always running late for work. I usually half avoid shaving my ankles and don't spend a lot of time on my knees because most other razors tend to cause those tiny, but painful cuts. But I can swoop all around my ankles and whatnot with the Venus Embrace with no problem. I rarely use shaving cream (see above running late excuse, and add lazy and sometimes cheap to the mix). Whatever moisturizer they have ALL around the razor kept my legs from being dry and itchy until I was able to put on some lotion (it's winter!). Truth be told, the only thing I don't like about this razor is the packaging. I hate those plastic containers that you have to saw through to get something out. Waste of my time and bad for the environment. I am somewhat of a cheapskate when it comes to razors, but I will definitely spend the $$ on this product.

  • Tropez Ultra Glaze Lip Sheen

    I bought this at the drug store one day when I needed to get some cash back using my debit cards, so I had to find something cheap to buy. I wandered around not being able to remember anything I needed, but walked through the makeup aisle and saw this product for $2.99. I don't use lipsticks for that long before I lose them, they accidentally melt or I decide I hate them, so figured what the heck. Truth be told, I really like the shade I chose and it seems to stay on long enough to satisfy me, while not accumulating any of that lipstick/gloss gunk on my lips. And, of course, about 20 minutes after buying it I managed to knock half off the lipstick off the tube and it got stuck in the cap. typical klutzy me!

  • Samy Moist Shampoo

    Samy Moist Shampoo

    weighed my hair down

    Wow, I'm really surprised to see all of the glowing reviews of this product. It was one of the very products I detested. It didn't smell good and weighed my hair down and made it feel less than clean. I barely made it a 1/4 of the way through the bottle. Now it (and it's corresponding shampoo) live my bathroom closet because I hate being wasteful and throwing them away.

    Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

    excellent product

    My dermatologist recommended this to me as it wouldn't break out my face. I have also applied it to the rest of my body and, surprisingly, loved it. It might not have the pretty commercial appeal as other lotions, but I apply after shaving my legs and my legs are smooth and soft for several days. Noticeably different than other lotions I have used (and loved). FOr the price, it is an excellent product.

    Ulta Nail Lacquer

    stained my nails

    2 difference nail colors stained my nails (pink and red varieties) and that has never happened to me before. I liked the application and length of wear very much, but often take a couple days off between polishes and cannot tolerate stained nails.

  • Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Pin Straight Shampoo

    I'm not the sort to buy any shampoo over $15 as I have never seen the slightest difference in my hair from expensive shampoos to Suave brand, etc. I really like these Herbal Essence shampoo (and conditioners) as they smell good, leave my hair clean and not weighed down and are very affordable. simple as that!

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    pretty darn great everyday mascara

    My mom bought me this mascara, randomly, as I had commented that I wanted to try hers at some point. I have bounced from mascara to mascara, never finding the right combination of mascara and brush for me. I really love the coverage of this mascara and that it is never goopy or clumpy. That is very important to me. It's not out of this world length or volume adding, but I am always satisfied going to work that my eyes look good and I can count on it.

  • Dove Invisible Solids

    Dove Invisible Solids

    won't buy again

    I trust the Dove brand and kept buying the Dove brand deodorant/anti-perspirants, but was always overwhelmingly disappointed. By the end of the day (of doing nothing substantial, just office work) I found my armpitty pits to be kind of damp and inevitably kind of smelly. I hate having to re-apply after an entire day if I am going to do something as I think it shouldn't be a necessity, but rather an option (to ward off potential stinkiness if that is what the night might bring). Just bought a new brand yesterday, and will see how that fares.

  • Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum

    Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum

    consistent favorite

    Burberry Brit has been a consistent favorite perfume over the years. It has lasting power, but isn't overwhelming. Sometimes I want a lighter scent, but I am always pleased with this perfume. One of the few things I do not have a problem paying for as I know it is worth it.

  • E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner
    6.0

    E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner

    not bad for the price

    I wasn't expecting much as this is a $1.00 product, but truth be told, it applied more smoothly than the more expensive liner I had been using. I love the intense color, and it always stays on all day. I have had no problems with flaking, as I see mentioned in other reviews. Would absolutely purchase this product again. Will still try other liners in the quest for Best LIquid Eyeliner Ever, but this is a good less expensive product which means I can buy multiple colors and not feel bad getting rid of them when they need to be thrown out. Not the greatest, but not bad for the price.
