    Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

    love this stuff!

    I absolutely loved this razor! It has 5 blades, which kind of scared me at first. I thought that maybe all those blades would irritate my skin. However, this gives a really close shave. The first time I used it, I just used it with water and relied only on the little bars. Bad mistake! The next day my underarms were irritated. It also didn't help that I shaved over the area a few too many times. It also felt kind of tight on my skin on my legs. Then, a week later, I used this razor to shave with some soap and I got perfect results! I got a close shave on my legs and underarms. With my old razor, I can still feel some stubble even after a shave, but this left even the skin on my underarms very smooth! The 5 blades thing seems to help! The little white bars on the side seemed to just be a plus, adding extra moisture to my skin. They were not too necessary. The blades and design of this razor is what really impressed me the most. Speaking of design, this has the best grip on a razor that I have ever felt! It was quite comfortable to grip and maneuver even on the tricky knee area. Overall, a great product that I would purchase refills for!

  • Frederic Fekkai Essential Shea Conditioner

    this conditioner is awesome! when i got out of the shower, my hair was SO soft! my naturally curly hair is dry and its sometimes hard to keep my curls defined. but after using the frederic fekkai shampoo and conditioner with shea butter, my hair was softer and my curls were more defined! i loved my hair. i would say the ONE MAJOR downside is the scent. I really hate it! it's kind of hard to describe, but it smells like medicated shea butter.

    Frederic Fekkai Essential Shea Shampoo

    smells bad but works great!

    this is seriously one of the best shampoos i have ever used. the formula is so creamy and lathers very nicely. one thing i'm afraid of whenever i try a new shampoo is if it'll make my hair feel dry after i rinse. this shampoo made my hair feel SO smooth after i rinsed it out! but the downside is the smell. although it cleansed my hair very well and made it feel very hydrated, the first thing i noticed when i poured the shampoo in my hands was the smell! it smells like medicated shea butter.

  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin

    this foundation is awesome! it literally lasts ALL DAY! it looks just as good at 6 AM and at 6 PM. i wore this all day at school and even sweated a little bit, but my skin still looked awesome. the foundation has buildable medium to full coverage. and even at a full coverage level, it's very comfortable on my dry skin. you dont even feel it on. its definitely not too heavy or cakey or drying. i use this with a foundation brush and i get the best coverage! this product blends very well! i'm mostly impressed with the pigmentation and staying power. i will definitely repurchase this. the only con is that its very expensive for a drugstore foundation. but totally worth it!

    Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eyeshadow

    not as pigmented as i'd like

    maybe i got a defective eyeshadow, but i wasnt too impressed with this one. the pigmentation was too good. i love the selection of colors, but unfortunately, they did not show up on skin. also, they are very matte, so it does live up to its claim.

  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture

    Okay, I'm going to be honest here. I was grateful to have received this to review, but severely disappointed with the performance of this product. So, even though I received this product, my opinion will not be biased in any way! The packaging is a cool idea. I will give it that. The only thing is, it doesn't save me that much time compared to my other lotion that uses a pump. It wasn't a HUGE time saver in that respect. Nonetheless, the spray is pretty quick. It comes out of the spray bottle like a thin mist, depending on how close you spray to your body, it'll be more or less product in one spot. The product definitely does live up to the claim that you can spray and dispense the product evenly onto your skin. I was able to hold it a few inches away from my arms and move it over slowly and get an even application. Unfortunately, though, the lotion comes out cold, which kinda hurts in the morning when you just get out of a hot shower and it's freezing outside! Rubbing it into my skin was super fast and easy, but this is also where the problem arises. The product does live up to its claim that it moisturizes and absorbs in seconds -- literally! I was able to put on my clothes right after application, just like the product claims. Not too long after I started rubbing the lotion into my skin, it was absorbed into my skin and felt like normal, and this is also where the problem arises for me. The product does live up to its claim that there is no greasiness, I suppose because it absorbs so quickly. Ok, so the problem with this, I find, is that because the formula of the lotion is thin, the moisture does not last on my skin. Personally, I have naturally dry skin AND it's winter, so using this lotion just wasn't enough for me. After two or three hours, my elbows were nearly ashy and dry again. At the end of the day, my legs were scaly like as if I had never even put lotion on my skin. This product would require me to reapply throughout the day, which is totally inconvenient. So, I would not recommend this to anyone with dry skin that needs moisture. Maybe if you have normal skin, this could work. I certainly wouldn't purchase this because it doesn't save me a ton of time in the morning and it's not even moisturizing. On the plus side, it smells good and absorbs quickly. It has a lock feature so it won't accidentally spray in your purse or something, but if you're like me and you won't be spraying the lotion ever again, the bottle makes a great pretend microphone!

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel

    i had tuna for lunch one day and i reached into my purse and used this...my hands smelled amazing! even my teacher said she could smell the scent from across the room! and best of all, the scent lingers on your hand for minutes later! it is not drying, and the beads disintegrate quickly. i love this stuff!

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush

    CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush

    pigmented and great staying power

    i love this blush! this is an awesome cream blush. i have the shade lush berry, which is one of the deeper shades. it is so pigmented and compliments my tan, medium skin tone very well. i believe it would even look great on fair skin, you would just have to apply very little product. this cream blush blends super easily and gives a natural, cute flush. it gives a flush-from-within type of look you'd expect from a cream blush. i just dip my elf stippling brush into the product, stipple it onto my cheeks, and blend away! when you put it on your cheeks it's really pigmented like, "OH WOW!" but you can easily blend it out and make it look natural. just don't use a lot! a little goes a long way with this [highly pigmented] blush. as far as staying power, this blush stays on all day. even after a 16 hour day, i could still see it on my face. i have dry skin, so i really appreciated the "olay cream swirl". the blush didn't dry out or look cakey throughout the day. overall, i highly recommend this blush. i give it an A! unfortunately, covergirl is discontinuing this! it's on sale in a lot of stores so snatch it up now while its still available! at a clearance price, this is a steal. but honestly, its a but much for the original price of $14
