  • Origins A Perfect World Liquid Moisture with White Tea

    This isn't a true tonic/toner, it's a moisturizer. So if you 1. wash your face 2. apply toner/tonic 3. apply APW Liquid Moisture 4. apply serum 5. apply moisture cream...it's just way too many steps. You can definitely kick this step out.

  • Nature's Gate Happy Glow Lucky Bronzing Creme - Clean Citrus Scent

    So without the harsh chemicals this product still has a "funny" smell. But if you can get around that, it does do a half decent job of enhancing your skin tone and making it just that bit darker. It's definitely worth a try. But as self-tanners go what works for one person will be a complete disaster for the next...so make sure that $7-10 is worth it

  • Origins Modern Friction
    9.0

    Origins Modern Friction

    Excellent physical exfoliant even for sensitive skin.

    I use this product about 1-2 times per week with great results. The more sensitive your skin tends to be (can also depend on the time of year) the more water can be added to the application of the exfoliating scrub, the gentler it becomes. My one qualm is that the squeezable tube (which is much less available) is much more user friendly than the tub. But this product is definitely part of my beauty routine.

  • Pureology SuperStraight Relaxing Serum
    6.0

    Pureology SuperStraight Relaxing Serum

    A bit heavy for thicker hair

    I found this product to work average on course/thick hair. However, I tend to have more of an oily complexion and hair so I think this product can be a bit too heavy for me. This line of Pureology is me least favorite and I am still giving it 6 stars for an honorable attempt. The fragrance of this SuperStraight line (which include the shampoo and conditioner) is a little nauseating as well.

  • YonKa Creme 155 - Body Contouring Cream
    7.0

    YonKa Creme 155 - Body Contouring Cream

    Good overall product but very pricey

    Having worked in a Salon/spa that uses this product in their body treatments, I have seen the "before and afters" of this product first hand. This product does work best if applied in alternation with Creme 55. The dimpling and saggind does diminish after application by a professional (after rigorous massage with both Creme 55 and 155 and Yonka's detoxifying massage oils). I have had clients who are moderately impressed by the results, although consistancy and change in diet and exercise help tremendously too.

  • Zoya Nail Polish
    9.0

    Zoya Nail Polish

    Great professional nail polish without the added chemicals

    The Company has been the best, by far, in a more natural line of nail polish that I have come across. I've seen Zoya sold in stores from Whole Foods to ULTA and Sally's Beauty Supply. I would definitely recommend this line to Pregnant women and those that would like less chemicals in their beauty products. Although, the lasting power is less then traditional professional-quality nail polish, the color selection is outstanding and it comes in a close second.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara
    8.0

    Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara

    Simple healthy lashes.

    I have very sensitive skin, and my eyelids have a tendancy towards eczema break-outs. I've had no problems with this mascara. It's formula and brush is very comparable to the much more expensive volumizing mascaras from Aveda and Origins. Don't be looking for crazy volume or length just a simple mascara that is great for sensitive skin and washes off easily with your everyday face soap and water.

  • Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick

    I stay away from anti-perspirants so I tend toward the natural lines of deodorants. Tom's is just okay. It actually cause some underarm redness (I am super sensitive). I have now been using the natural salt spray deodorant and have loved it for over a year.

  • Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo

    Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo

    My favorite tea-tree oil shampoo!!!

    I've have slight to moderate scalp issues including sensitivities to products, flaking around the hair line, and oily hair. This shampoo is by far my favorite at combating these problems, it gives a little tingle too.

  • Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Creme
    2.0

    Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Creme

    My least-favorite Aveda line.

    It was the summer so I decided to try some "Carribean Therapy" because it sounded so tropical and beach-worthy. I applied the Creme and all day long I kept smelling myself and grimacing...PHEW!!! There is something about the scent of this product that is just nauseating to me (and NO I was not pregnant). Luckily, the people at Aveda were super sweet when I returned it!!!
