    Everyday Minerals Matte Base

    Best mineral powder I have found

    This is my go-to mineral powder. It's the best! First, they don't use animal testing, which is awesome. Second, it's a great product at an awesome price! It has perfect coverage without leaving a sheen like another popular brand. I have normal to combination skin and the matte is perfect. It doesn't leave a cakey or thick look, but absorbs all of the oil on my forehead. You can also use the foundation as a concealer. Just dab on a few layers with a concealer brush! There are plenty of colors to choose from and you can order a sample pack so you can find the best color for you. The price is great and you get a large container that lasts forever. I cannot say enough good things about these foundations.

  • Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser

    This cleanser left my face feeling so gross. The cleanser is nice and thick. It doesn't lather at all and doesn't rinse off at all. After using, I felt like I had a waxy, greasy film over my whole face. No amount of rinsing removes it. I had to wash my face with a foam cleanser after using this. I tried using less product the next time and still had the same results. I usually try to get through the rest of the bottle, but I threw this away after less than a week. My face did not feel clean at all, but dirtier!

  • Image Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque

    This is a great exfoliating masque! It is great for aging or soon-to-be aging skin. It is strong- you definitely feel it tingling on your skin. It's a glycolic acid masque, so it is good for many skin types. It also has some manual exfoliation beads in it. You put on the masque, let it sit (I leave it on for 30 min or so), then get your face wet and rub the little beads all around while removing the masque. It's like a little massage and makes your skin extra smooth. Don't be alarmed if you get flakey skin within a couple days of using this. That is completely normal and just your dead dull skin shedding. I love to use this in between my in-office peels to keep my skin fresh and radiant. Pros: you only need a thin layer, so it lasts; it's strong and effective; it smells good; leaves my skin fresh, smooth, and glowy. Cons: none. Oh and another tip- you can mix it with your normal cleanser to make a scrub of sorts. Boosts up your normal cleanser's exfoliation if you don't have the time to let the masque sit on your skin!

  • Aveda Shampure Shampoo
    10.0

    Aveda Shampure Shampoo

    Just love it

    I absolutely love Aveda's Shampure. My salon uses all Aveda, and that's where I discovered this product. I noticed that my hair looked great for 2-3 days after a haircut and the smell lasts just as long. Normally, a style last 1 day max for me. I have just below shoulder length, thick, colored hair. While it is a bit more than something you'd get at a drugstore, $10 isn't breaking the bank. It is a high quality shampoo at a very reasonable price. My hair feels so soft and clean after using. It's light and bouncy. And I love the smell. It is a strong smell that lasts a long time, so that could turn off some people if they don't like a strong smell. But the smell is all natural from the extracts in the shampoo. not some artificial perfumy smell. I have tried many other shampoos/conditioners and always go back to this. Even though it's not made specifically for color treated hair, I feel like this shampoo does not strip my color and nourishes it well.

  • Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo

    Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo

    Not what I expected from Aveda

    I LOVE Aveda products. The smell and quality are always great. I decided to try this for my colored red hair that fades so fast. I am not happy at all with the results. The good- I do feel like my hair color has stayed a bit more vibrant, but not a huge difference from what i was using previously. And it smells amazing. That's it. The bad- First, it doesn't lather well, so I have to use a lot of product to "clean" my hair. Second, even with using a ton of product, my hair still doesn't look/feel clean. It looks even more greasy after I wash it. If feel gross, like I put way too much glossing serum in. It's stiff and not soft. Part of that is also due to the conditioner not working well. When it comes down to it, I'd rather color my hair a bit more often than use this shampoo. I will be buying the Aveda Shampure next time. That is a product I KNOW I love.

    SkinCeuticals Emollience

    Best moisturizer

    I recently started using this and love it. First, it smells amazing. It's all natural fragrance and smells like a wonderful herb garden. It has a ton of natural extracts. Second, my skin is oily-ish on my forehead, and normal to dry around my cheeks. While this moisturizer is made for dry skin, it never feels too heavy on my skin. My forehead doesn't seem too oily and the rest of my face feels so hydrated.

    Image Skincare Ageless Total Facial Cleanser

    Best cleanser Ive ever used

    I lOVE this cleanser. I used to use nothing but regular drug store cleansers. I've never had "bad" skin, but I would have occassional breakouts and those little bumps on my forehead that aren't really pimples, but noticable. I have been using this for about a year now. The little bumps went away within a week or two, and i never have breakouts anymore. It tingles when you use it. You can definitely feel the glycolic acid. It leaves my skin not dry or tight as many other cleansers. I feel this cleanser has made my skin so smooth and even-toned. I would not use anything else!

  • Got2b CrazySleek Hot Smooth Flat Iron & Blow Dry Lotion

    I had gotten this product a long while ago for some reason...what can I say, I'm a product junkie! I'm not much a blow dryer user, so this quickly got pushed to the back of my cabinet after just a few uses. Well, I recently cut my hair into a bob, so I have to dry and straighten it for it to be styled the way I like it. I had been using my ultimate favorite, Aveda Hang Straight, but eek, I ran out. And of course they don't make it anymore :( Back to Got2B... needing something to put in my hair for smoothing, straightening, and heat protection, I was digging through my cabinet and found this and re-tried it and I think it works pretty great! It is a bit heavy, but I have thick hair, so it works. The spray is thick, so I spray several sprays in my hand first then rub it through my hair (which I do with any spray product anyways, just to get even distribution). The smell is a little weird. It's not necessarily bad, but it's odd. Not odd enough to not use the product though. It keeps my hair nice and straight all day. This is a pretty decent product. I will most likely find another Aveda product to straighten/smooth, but this will work in the mean time just fine.

  • L'Oreal Paris Infallible 8 Hr Le Gloss

    I bought this in "Modern Mauve" after trying a friend's and liking it. Yes, it is a little sticky, but I don't think it's overly sticky. I think any gloss that is going to last a long time is going to be somewhat sticky. I love the applicator, it's a soft sponge tip and not bristles. I hate bristle applicators. The color is great and lasts a long time. It's perfect for a night out because who wants to reapply over and over when out having fun? I do reapply throughout the day because it does come off on cups/glasses. The color is perfect, looks natural and shimmery but not over the top. It is not the shiniest of glosses. If I want extra shine (and I love shine!), I will put this on with a super shiny clear gloss over it. I would like to buy this gloss in some more colors. Oh also, if you really hate the sticky feeling, put on chap-stick first, then this gloss. It doesn't last quite as long (but still a long time!) and it doesn't feel as sticky on your lips.

  • C.O. Bigelow Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine

    C.O. Bigelow Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine

    Great Taste, Great shine!

    I love this lip gloss. It is super shiny, which I love and it smells and tastes amazing! My lips are naturally very light, and while this doesn't really have any color, the shine and moisture make my lips look darker. I love the way it feels also. A nice cool tingly feeling, but not the painful stinging tingle you get from plumpers. My only complaint is that it doesn't last very long, but that is ok because it tastes so good to keep reapplying!
