  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor

    I bought this in Deepest Cherry, which is more deep burgundy than cherry. I adore this lipstick. Its my go-to for deep berry lips. The color payoff is great and glossy. I dont notice that my lips are in better condition than before I put this on, but thats not a big concern for me. It lasts well, not more than a few hours, and not through a meal. I'm happy to reapply because I love the color so much and the packaging is gorgeous.

  • Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash

    This body wash smells so soothing. Its really hard to describe, herby and lavendar maybe? It has great lather and is really creamy and luxe.

  • Avon Supershock Mascara

    The first few weeks of this product were great. It glided on my lashes like a dream, came off easily at night, and lasted without flaking all day long. I started getting tarantula lashes about week 3. The product dried out so fast I could barely use it in another 2 weeks. Its a shame because it started out so well. I will not be repurchasing.

  • Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara

    I loved how glossy black this mascara is. However, it was quick to flake and came off too easily. So many of Maybellines other mascaras are great, this one is just a dud!

  • Redken Iron Silk 07

    I bought this last month. I think I’ve used it long enough to give a thorough review. This product was highly recommended by TB, Amazon, and the stylist at the salon I bought it from. It is more expensive that I’m used to spending, something like $18, but I’m okay with spending more if I get better results. I let most of my hair air dry, the use this spray and blow dry with a round brush. After that I spray just the ends again and give my hair bounce with a large barrel curling iron. This spray gets sticky if I use too much and has a distinct alcohol-ish smell. The nozzle doesn’t clog, and the bottle is a good size. It does a good job protecting my hair from heat damage. However, I will not be repurchasing this product due to the smell and the stickiness. I’ll go for the blow dry lotion instead.

  • Remington Care Setter Ionic

    I bought these in a pinch. I had a company event and wanted sort of vintage 40s soft body waves. My hair curls really well with both a curling iron and hot rollers. I blow my hair dry with mousse, heat protectant spray and a round brush. I didn’t expect these to be sooo cheap. The plastic on the rollers is so thin it was impossible to keep my fingers from burning. The deck took forever to heat up and the rollers cooled down so fast they were barely on my head for 10 minutes. I was able to achieve the look I wanted but it lasted less than 2 hours before going flat. Yes, they were inexpensive but I was expecting a bit more quality. I'll be returning this set and purchasing a bit more expensive set. They were ok in a pinch but I wouldn’t want to use them every day.

  • Matrix Biolage ExquisiteOil Micro-Oil Shampoo

    I bought this as a duo with conditioner. I have always liked Biolage products and was in the market for a moisturizing shampoo. I live in the high desert and my hair gets dry and crunchy in the wind and cold. This shampoo has a classic Biolage scent. It’s very subtle to me but it may stand out for someone else. It smells like salon shampoo. The conditioner barely has a smell at all. The shampoo is cleansing, lathers well, once is usually enough unless I’ve got some serious product buildup. It also feels quite hydrating, considering it’s a shampoo. It IS paraben free but NOT sulfate free, which doesn’t make a huge difference for me. My hair is difficult to manage and this shampoo doesn’t make it easier but it does make it healthier and gives it more shine. Overall, this is a great product if you are a fan of Biolage.

  • Gold Bond Ultimate Hand Sanitizer Moisturizer

    I work with money every day. Its dirty and gross and we all use copious amounts of hand sanitizer for a quick clean. But that was drying my hands out like nobody’s business. The skin between my thumb and pointer fingers would crack and peel. Very uncomfortable. Then I found out Gold Bond made a hand sanitizer. I was so thrilled. There are two “flavors” of this, the original scent, which definitely smells like sanitizer, and the fresh citrus scent, which is the one I have. It smells very lightly of oranges. The texture is runny, not thick like the GB lotions, and when you squeeze the tube quite a lot comes out. I use it for my hands and forearms at work. I don’t have worry about drying my hands out because this formula, like all the GB lotions, is quite moisturizing. I not have a little bottle stashed in my purse. Love it.

  • Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Skin Therapy Lotion

    In the winter, the skin on my legs gets super dry and crack. It’s aggravated by the fact that I live in the high desert. The cold and dry winters just do a number on my skin. I've tried Jergens, Vasoline, Curel, all the other drugstore lotions. Gold Bond is the best. I have the Restoring version with CoQ10 and vitamin E. This lotion has a very light scent, faintly herbal/medical. It goes on thick but absorbs really well, leaving behind moisturized skin. This lotion has even helped my cracked heels. I like to smell yummy too but the girly lotions just don’t deliver this level of hydration. GOLD BOND is where its AT!

  • EcoTools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set

    EcoTools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set

    Seriously good deal

    I bought this set years ago. All my brushes are still soft, don't shed. The brush heads are still firmly attached to the shaft and they dont rattle at all. These brushes hold up to daily use, shampooing, travel. The large eyeshadow brush is my go-to for shading my crease and I love the angled brush for gel eyeliner. The big fluffy brush is great for blush or powder, although I usually use it for powder. I lost the brow comb a few years ago and I don’t miss it. I would rather have one more shadow brush instead of the comb. For how inexpensive these brushes are, you wouldn’t expect them to be such great quality but they are. Plus, they’re eco-friendly so you can feel good about looking good. I just wish there was just a bit more selection, different shaped shadow brushes, buffing brushes for foundation etc. Maybe they’ll release some. I’d buy them.
