  • Garnier Fructis Daily Care 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner

    The Garnier Fructis Daily Care is one of my favorite 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner products, even though I only use it about once a week. I switch back and forth between about three different shampoos and conditioners every week to keep my hair healthy and this stuff really helps do the trick. I am a quarter Italian and my hair and skin gets oily very quickly. I’ve been struggling for what seems like forever to find a way to keep my hair from getting greasy. If I wash my hair in the morning, it will be greasy by nightfall! For many years, I used to just wash my hair every day to avoid having to go out in public with greasy hair. After some research, I decided to wash my hair less and try some different products and techniques to try and alleviate my problem. Now, I wash my hair every 2-3 days and I don’t use both shampoo and conditioners; I just use 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner products. I also try to alternate between brands so my hair doesn’t get too used to one kind of product. About a month ago, I dyed my hair using Garnier hair dye and decided to pick up one of the Garnier 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners. This stuff really works great on my hair! Since my hair is dyed and I have very long hair, it has a tendency to get coarse and dry out (when it’s not greasy! Lol) This product helps keep the nutrients in my hair and also keeps it from getting coarse and drying out. It also has worked perfectly along with my little “grease-away” strategy of using different 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners every few days. I also want to mention that I love the way this stuff smells! It doesn’t have an overpowering fruity or chemical smell like a lot of products and it leaves my hair smelling clean and just a little bit citrusy. My only complaint about this product is the way the bottle opens. There is a little green rounded knob on the top of the bottle that you are supposed to push up on and have the whole top flip open. Since I am in the shower when I wash my hair (isn’t that how most people wash their hair?!), my hands are wet and it gets really hard to flip the top open. My fingers just slip right over the knob and I can’t put enough pressure on it to open the flap. I’m also not willing to break a fingernail by trying to force the flap open from any of the sides... But besides that, this is a great product! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who dyes their hair, has trouble keeping their hair looking “healthy”, or prefers to use 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners. The price is great too! There really is no need to waste your money on lots of high dollar hair products with stuff like this out there!

  • Biore Make-Up Removing Towelettes

    I am a professional actor/dancer so I have to wear very heavy makeup for my performances. I used to have so many problems removing my makeup. Wearing so much makeup really irritates my skin so I was desperate to find a makeup remover that would also help keep my skin healthy. For the longest time, I just used cold cream; which was a nightmare. Cold cream was uncomfortable, not to mention cold (kind of self-explanatory there), really irritated my skin and made my eyes water and sting for about an hour. I’ve also tried many other makeup removing wipes and most of them just end up smearing my makeup around and only removing about 20% of it. The only way I could get them to work was by scrubbing my skin raw! Then, a friend of mine recommended Biore makeup removing wipes. I was skeptical, since I’d already tried just about every other brand out there, but I gave them a go. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! These wipes are soft and slightly moist. They feel great on my skin and remove makeup easily without leaving any residue. No more uncomfortable cold cream, no more scrubbing my face raw, no more stinging watery eyes! And best of all, these wipes keep my face moisturized! I don’t have to worry about how my face will react to the makeup I have to wear because I know these wipes will take care of it as soon as soon as I use them. I will say that there are only two things that bother me about these wipes. 1: I don’t like the way the wipes are packaged. The wipes come in a plastic wrapping with an opening that once you open, doesn’t really close anymore. There is a little bit of stickyness to the flap that covers the opening, but after about a week, it doesn’t close anymore and unless you find something heavy to put on top of the package, the makeup removing wipes will dry out and become unusable. 2: I don’t like the size of the towelettes. The wipes are too large and I noticed that I end up wasting about half of the towelettes every time I use one. To fix this problem, I began cutting the wipes in half with a pair of scissors and then saving the other half for the next time I need them. The last thing I will say about this product is that it is a wonderful “cheat” for making perfect vintage wings with liquid eyeliner! When you put on your liquid liner, try and match the wings with the bottom lid of your eye. Don’t worry if the wings are messy on the bottom, in fact, it’s a lot easier if you just make the bottom of the line kind of messy. Just try and make the top of the wings perfect. Then, take a corner of the makeup removing wipes and run it along the bottom edge of the wings to create an absolutely perfect line! Long story short, I LOVE this product and highly recommend it to everyone!

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Unscented Beauty Bar

    My family has been using this soap for years! Most of the women in my family are allergic to perfumes so this soap is perfect. Plus, it leaves your skin feeling perfectly clean and smooth.
