  • Avon Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel

    I have been using these pads every other day for the past two weeks and already I have seen remarkable results. I had a period of very bad break outs 6 months ago that left me with some acne scarring. However, this product has helped to make these spots less dark, and my skin in general more even. I do have some tingling after use, but my skin has not gotten dry or flaky from it.

  • Max Factor Volume Couture Waterproof Mascara

    Max Factor Volume Couture Waterproof Mascara

    It works hards, stays put for days.

    I purchased this mascara after it was recommended by some magazine. What I like about it is that the color is a deep black, it stays put for as long as you want it to, and it does make your lashes look dramatic. That being said, this is one of those mascaras that probably would work straight out of the tube for people with shorter or thinner lashes. If you have longer, thicker lashes, you have to make sure to use a tissue to blot the wand, and possibly use a lash comb to separate lashes after application(they tend to want to stick together). However, each time I use this product, it makes my eyes really pop because my lashes look really long and thick.

  • Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion

    Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion

    Handy for travel, good on hair.

    This is one of my favorite products for traveling because it comes in a small container, and doesn't take up space in my luggage. I've found that you can apply it to wet or dry hair, with comparable success. The product when it comes out of the bottle is a little weird. It looks like a powder, but feels cool. As soon as you squish your hands together, it seems like half the product goes on to the floor, which is a negative. However, the product does a great job of volumizing, but does add more of a matte look to hair.

  • Aveda Madder Root Color Conditioner

    Aveda Madder Root Color Conditioner

    Keeps Red Heads Vibrant

    I have auburn hair, and especially durning the winter, the color gets a little dull. This conditioner is perfect for perking up your color as much or as little as you like. As a few reviewers have pointed out, this product does add color to your hair, so you have to be careful if you have highlights, and it will stain your shower curtains, etc. However, it does a very nice job of perking up red hair. You do have to watch how often you use it, or you can turn your hair an unnatural looking color. I use it full strength maybe once every 10 days, and mixed with equal parts of normal conditioner maybe every three days. I imagine that if your hair is not naturally red that it may have to be used more often than that to maintain color, as red coloring seems to fade fast.

  • Matrix Total Results Wonder Boost Root Lifter

    Matrix Total Results Wonder Boost Root Lifter

    Turns up the volume, but turns down the shine.

    This is one of the most effective volumizers that I have tried. I apply a few pumps to damp hair at the crown and then tousle the hair to distribute the product. The one issue I have with it is that it does take away some of the natural shine that your hair has.

  • no!no!

    no!no!

    Say No to No No

    The no no is so not worth the money. When I bought it, it sounded like it would make the hair growing less dense or would stop growth all together. After using it for 12 weeks, I did see a little difference, but not enough to warrant the three days a week of using it, at 20 or so minutes each time. If the results would have been permanent, perhaps I could have justified it. However, once you stop using the product, the hair quickly reverts to how it was originally. This is no substitute for laser hair removal, that is for sure.

    Benefit Lip Plump

    Not a lip plumper

    This isn't really a lip plumper so much as a base for making your lipstick truer to the color in the tube. If you use a light coat, it helps to make even light shades appear truer to color on your lips.

  • Matrix Sleek.look Iron Smoother Hair Straightening Formula

    This product works very well as an accompanyment to flat ironing. It does seem to help protect the hair, does not smell bad, and dries quickly. I have experienced the crunchiness that some of the other people have talked about, which is one of the reasons that I did not give this the highest rating.

    Matrix Sleek.look Smoothing Conditioner

    Eliminates the hand in the light socket look

    I absolutely love this conditioner because it does a good job of conditioning the hair without weighing it down to the point of limpness. It leaves your hair soft and silky, and seems to help keep hair healthy for those of us who are addicted to straightening irons.

  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Splendor Hair Shampoo

    I'm sort of a shampoo tramp. My conditioner I am pretty loyal to, but I've tried pretty much every shampoo out there. For the price, this one is quite good. I can tell a difference when I use it versus using a non-volumizing shampoo. It has a clean smell, doesn't dry the hair out, and seems to add shine as well. I would still recommend using a volumizer with it simply because it will give longer hold.
