    Origins Organics Purifying Tonic

    Great for people with oily or acne prone skin

    This is a great toner for people like me with combination/oily skin. I use this after I have washed my face with origins checks and balances cleanser both morning and night. I think this really does the extra bit of cleansing and purifying my skin needs. I love that it is natural and organic and the smell is great. I wasn't thrilled when I saw it had alcohol in it but it doesn't sting or seem overly drying like other toners that have alcohol in it. It is a strong toner and I think it might be irritating for people with sensitive or dry skin. I think it will be a bit too harsh for my skin in the winter but it is perfect for how oily my skin has gotten this summer.

  • Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

    I love this cleanser. It feels mild but cleanses very well. Most cleansers that claim to be foaming only foam up a bit, but this one foams a lot. Because it foams so much I usually end up with some in my hair or in my ears which can be a bit annoying, but because it foams so much you don't need very much cleanser at all. I have seen a huge improvement in the amount and size of blackheads on my nose, and my chin has cleared up a lot. I use this cleanser with my clarisonic with the deep pore brush, some cleansers feel too harsh with the clarisonic but this one still feels very mild. This cleanser is unscented which I love. The ingredients in this do have a strong herbal smell though, I found it a bit overwhelming at first but I now find it very pleasant. The price is pretty reasonable for a high end cleanser and a little goes a long way. All in all this is my favorite cleanser I have tried. I think it would be great for people of all skin types. Highly recommend.

  • Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse

    I loved this stuff when I had long hair. It really helped enhance my natural curls and waves. I put this on wet hair before I brushed it out and let my hair air dry, once it was dry I combed my hair out, and I would be left with that effortlessly wavy look I always wanted. It helped control frizz a bit too. It didn't leave any residue and once my hair was dry it wasn't crunchy at all. The price is great too, and one can lasted me a very long time.

  • Aussie Sydney Smooth 3 Minute Miracle Original Smoothing Treatment

    I really liked this stuff when I first started using it. My hair felt so soft, was super shiny, and it wasn't tangled. After a while though I noticed that my hair was starting to get really weighed down and a bit limp. After that I started using it only when my hair seemed especially dry or damaged. When I ran out I didn't get another bottle.

  • John Frieda Hydrate + Nourish Shampoo for Dry Scalp & Breakage-Prone Hair

    This is not my usual shampoo. I always buy this when I travel, I don't bother trying to pack my good shampoo anymore. This is a really good shampoo for the price. It smells nice and doesn't leave a residue. My hair feels pretty soft after I use it. I don't know if it strengthens my hair or not, I have a pixie cut so its not really a big concern of mine. If you are looking for a good drug store shampoo, this is it.

  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray

    I really like this spray, it does make my hair look lighter in a natural way. I just spray it on after I shower and let my hair air dry, sometimes outside. The spray seems to speed up the natural lightening that the sun does to my hair in the summer. The spray would lighten my hair faster if I used a blow dryer or I straightened or curled my hair as it is heat activated but I rarely do.

    Paul Mitchell Shampoo One

    Pretty good shampoo

    I have used this shampoo on and off since I was 15. I like this shampoo but I don't love it. It smells great and doesn't leave residue but doesn't do anything special either. My hair feels a lot smoother when I use pureology. I basically just buy this shampoo when I can't get to a place that sells my favorite shampoo.

  • Clarisonic Brush Head
    8.0

    Clarisonic Brush Head

    Some great, some not so great

    I love my Clarisonic but I don't love all the brush heads I have tried. My favorite brush by far is the deep pore cleansing brush, but I also liked the sensitive and the normal but the acne brush they came out with recently is useless. The deep pore cleansing brush seemed to improve my skin the most, especially with the pores on my nose. The deep pore brush also felt gentler than the normal brush, I was worried it would be too harsh. The normal and sensitive were good for my skin as well. The acne brush was no different than not using my clarisonic at all. The brushes are pretty expensive so I used the acne brush for the full 3 months, hating it every time I used it. In general though, the Clarisonic brush heads are definitely worth the money!

  • Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    I love my clarisonic. It took me a long time to buy the Mia because of the price. Spending over $100 on any skincare products just seems excessive. I am really happy I shelled out though, it makes a huge difference in my skin care routine. My cleanser works so much better and my skin is so much smoother. I think it does make my toner and moisturizer more effective but it is a bit hard to tell. I took a few weeks off from using it once, it fell onto my bathroom floor (it turned itself on, that has only happened once) brush head down and it took me a while to replace the brush head. I noticed that with out using it my pores started to look bigger and I had a lot more black heads and little white heads on my forehead, nose and chin. I have experimented with a few different brush heads for it. The sensitive one that comes with it works pretty well, I replaced it with the acne brush when that one came out and I found that one to be useless, and I have the normal brush now and I like it as much as the sensitive one that I had originally. The Clarisonic Mia is worth the investment!

  • DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

    DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

    Great oil cleanser

    I was hesitant to use any oil cleanser, it seems like a terrible idea. I gave in and tried the Josie Maran oil cleanser and that was awful but I decided to try this one. This stuff is great. It removes make-up really well, and it is the only make-up remover that I can use around my eye area with out any irritation at all. This cleanser rinses off surprisingly well leaving my skin really smooth. I don't use this as my only cleanser, I follow it with my regular cleanser using my clarisonic. I don't think it would cleanse my face enough if I used it on its own, especially in the summer months, maybe in the winter. I wish it was a bit cheaper but it wouldn't seem as expensive if I could use it as my only cleanser. I will definitely be buying again and highly recommend.
