Here are all my reviews:
  • Aussie Aussome Volume Conditioner

    At almost 14 fl oz / 400 ml for the full size, this retails for $3.99 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottles lasted me for a little over 2 months and with my past shoulder length hair, that’s pretty good. The front text reads “boosts hair that’s fallen flat” and “lightweight conditioning to fight droopy do’s”. The back of the bottle states the following: “Aussome Volume Conditioner with Wild Cherry Bark, leaves your hair with volume.” Verdict? Awesome conditioner in a sturdy, purple bottle? Almost a definite WIN for me! It is reasonably priced, very accessible (available just about everywhere shampoo and conditioner is sold) and smells great. It’s hard to describe the scent, but I would say it’s citrus-y more than anything else. Conditioner provides just the right amount of softness to keep hair free of tangles. I can’t vouch for the volume claim though. I was hoping it’d give me more volume than what I got, but a good buy for the price and quality overall. Please note that I do like this conditioner a tad bit better than the shampoo. I was sad the day I found this bottle empty. Good thing I have another bottle stocked up.

  • Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave In Treatment

    At 154 ml / a little over 5 fl oz for the full size, this retails for $7.49 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time (like right now!) and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottle lasted me for almost a year. With my long hair, that’s great. I did use it only when I feel I needed a little conditioning boost. The front text reads “WITH NOURISHING WHEAT COMPLEX” and “deeply replenishes dry, damaged hair”. Directions on the back of the bottle reads: "Spray all over hair or on concentrated areas as desired. Comb through to distribute evenly. Do not rinse. For best results, use the AVEENO NOURISH+ Shampoo and Conditioner designed to suit your hair texture." Verdict? I like it a lot. It helps with tangles, so I use it on days that I use shampoo but not conditioner or when I just feel like my hair needed a little extra loving. The scent is that of a typical clean shampoo. I love it. It’s fragrant and nice. I find that my roots don’t need much of it, so I typically just spray for the application from the middle to the tip of my hair strands. I then just follow through with a comb for even distribution. Everyone asks me what I use on my hair cause it looks and smells great. I’m definitely buying this product again now that I’ve just run out of it.

  • Aveeno Nourish + Volumize Shampoo

    Aveeno Nourish + Volumize Shampoo

    Doesn't fare as high as its counterpart

    At 311 ml / a little over 10 fl oz for the full size, this retails for $7.49 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time (like right now!) and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottle lasted me for almost 2 months. With my long hair, that’s only okay. The front text reads “WITH NOURISHING WHEAT COMPLEX AND BLUE LOTUS FLOWER” and “strengthens and adds body to fine or limp hair”. Directions on the back of the bottle reads: "Apply to wet hair and lather with a gentle massaging motion. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if needed. Follow with AVEENO NOURISH+VOLUMIZE Conditioner." Verdict? I like it, but it’s a little bit pricey for what you’re getting. I could get the same result from many other different brands. Formula is nice and creamy with the usual consistency of a shampoo. The scent is that of a typical clean shampoo. A little goes a long way. For the price and what I'm getting though, I won't hesitate shopping around for the same product with better results from other brands. I won't hesitate to get it if it's on sale.

    Aveeno Nourish + Volumize Conditioner

    A conditioner that delivers!

    At 311 ml / a little over 10 fl oz for the full size, this retails for $7.49 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time (like right now!) and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottle lasted me for almost 2 months. With my long hair, that’s only okay. The front text reads “WITH NOURISHING WHEAT COMPLEX AND BLUE LOTUS FLOWER” and “strengthens and adds body to fine or limp hair”. Directions on the back of the bottle reads: "After using AVEENO NOURISHING+VOLUMIZE Shampoo, massage into wet hair and work evenly through to ends. Rinse thoroughly." Verdict? I like it, but it’s a little bit pricey for what you’re getting. I could get the same result from many other different brands. Formula is nice and creamy with the usual consistency of a conditioner. It definitely delivers what it promises. My hair is left soft and smooth after using this product with the shampoo from the same line or with shampoo from another brand. The scent is that of a typical clean shampoo. I avoid applying this to my scalp area to properly balance moisture in my hair. I find that my roots don’t need much of it, so I start application from the tips working my way up to the scalp.

  • ARTISTRY Time Defiance Night Recovery Creme
    8.0

    ARTISTRY Time Defiance Night Recovery Creme

    There are better ones out there

    At 50 ml / 50 g / almost 2 oz, I remember the price tag was pretty steep to other facial moisturizers and cremes I’ve purchased. Looking at their website, it seems like they have renamed this to Artistry Time Defiance Night Recovery Creme. It comes in a sturdy white tub container with a gold screw top lid. But how did it fare to what it claims in the description on their website? Not bad, but I’ll pass. As a facial creme, it does hydrate my skin very well for the night. A little goes a long way. I am not a huge fan though on the grease level, which is why I will reiterate this point again: a little goes a long way. Another things I am not too thrilled about is the scent. Formula is good, but the scent is a little on the medicine-y side to me. It’s not too strong though and I was able to stand it. I don’t really notice any huge changes to my skin in comparing before and after use of this product really. With that said, I’d rather keep my options open and look around for other more worthy facial moisturizers or cremes for a cheaper price probably.

  • ARTISTRY Time Defiance Cleansing Treatment
    9.0

    ARTISTRY Time Defiance Cleansing Treatment

    Works as promised for a high price

    At 125 ml / 125 g / a little over 4 oz, this cleanser rates pretty well in my book. I tried to figure out how much it costs back when I got it, but looking at their website it seems to be pretty high for a cleanser. It costs more than the facial cleansers and scrubs offered from other various drugstore brands. It comes in an easy to squeeze white tube and the whole tube lasted me for about 3 months for daily usage in the morning and at night. The consistency is a clear gel, like most hair gels. It lathers up really quick too. To use, I just wet my face and squeeze a small amount on my palm to apply it on my face in a massaging motion. I wash it off and dry my face with a towel in a patting motion. It’s very easy to use and works really well as a facial cleanser. It’s very mild in my opinion and does a great job in removing all dirt, oil and impurities. It cleanses really well without drying my skin at all. This is very safe to use daily. The price may be its downfall for me. I do love it, but I probably won’t be purchasing this again unless I get a great deal on it. I mean, over $30 for a facial cleanser?! Yeah.

  • ARTISTRY Essentials Replenishing Eye Cream

    ARTISTRY Essentials Replenishing Eye Cream

    Not the best for the price

    At 15 ml / 14 g / 1/2 fl oz, this retails for $28.40 at their website. It’s a pretty penny for such little product, which led me to have very high hopes for this. The product comes packaged in a small white squeeze tube with a twist cap. The benefits of using this product is listed on their website. Not bad, but I’ll pass on this. As an eye creme, it does what it’s supposed to do. But all the other claims? I’m not sure any eye creme can give a noticeable change in just 24 hours. Formula is good and a little goes a long way. I’m not too thrilled about the scent too. It’s a little on the medicine-y side to me. It’s not too strong though and I was able to tolerate it. With all that, I’m keeping my options open to look around for other more worthy eye cremes for a cheaper price probably.
