  • Korres Hydrating Guava Body Butter

    I received this as part of the Total Beauty Collection for HSN package. It's an okay lotion. It smells like guava, the whole fruit, including the skin--meaning it smells slightly green and plant like in addition to being slightly sweet and fruity. It's not a candy sweet scent, but a more natural sort of fragrance. It's nice, but not my cup of tea. It's more lotion-textured and consistency than a body butter, in my opinion. It's not heavy, but it doesn't sink in to my skin as much as I'd like. Overall, I'd say that it's not a bad product, but not "universally appealing."

    TanTowel Half Body Classic Towelettes

    Good product, better for lighter skintones

    I have a medium skintone (NC20-25), and this product only very slightly darkened my skin tone. I tested the tan towel on one arm but not the other. There was a difference, but it was quite slight. I do like that this product was fairly easy to use, looked natural (barely noticeable), and didn't streak or stain. It didn't even seem to rub off on my sheets or clothes. These come out to about five bucks for a full body application, and about half that for half-body, which isn't unreasonable. Tanning lotions like Jergens Express are cheaper, but are slightly less convenient. I would be really interested in trying the medium-dark skin tone tan towels.

  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture

    If you are anything like me, then you probably think that spray-on sunscreen is the greatest thing EVER. I love the stuff, and it's the only kind of sunscreen I can get my fiance to wear. So I was kind of intrigued by this new Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer. I don't really have a problem with any of my usual body creams getting onto my clothes, since they absorb fairly well also, so the tagline of "absorbs quickly so you can put your clothes right on" isn't really a selling point for me. I really like that this spray dispenses just the right amount of lotion. It's very easy to use, the container fits comfortably in my hand and the spray nozzle works well. It can even be "locked" to avoid accidental sprays, just by twisting the top! The formula is fantastic--it easily absorbs into the skin with just a bit of rubbing. My skin is pretty normal (not dry) and this keeps my legs well moisturized for a few hours. I don't particularly care for the scent of the product (but if you like Vaseline products, this is the same scent). I also really like that this is not an aerosol-propelled product--it uses canned air. Pros: Formula absorbs into skin quickly Feels nice, not greasy Spray-on formula is convenient Cons: Price is only okay for the amount of product Contains parabens, fragrance (typical Vaseline lotion scent)

  • Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Créme

    Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Créme

    My favorite hair product!

    I received a free sample of this product with an online Sephora order. PROS: This product makes your hair nice and shiny! Pleasant scent. Product lasts awhile b/c you don't need very much. Does not weigh hair down as much as serums that I've tried (Tigi Dream Drops and Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum). My hair is less frizzy! My hair seems slightly healthier? CONS: Doesn't dramatically how dry your hair really is though. Blowouts do not last as long w/this product for me. Overall, a good product that I might buy again! (Paul Mitchell Super Skinny serum is at least $5 cheaper Fekkai Glossing Cream, but for how long either product lasts, $5 either way isn't bad!).

  • Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

    The pigmentation is just okay. Chips after a few days. Not worth the price.

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel

    This is my favorite hand sanitizer ever. It comes in the most amazing array of scents (including special limited edition varieties), and is nice and portable. The packaging doesn't leak either. It is a bit spendy (compared to regular hand sanitizer gels) but it goes on sale often. I work at a middle school and always have at least one bottle on me! I definitely credit it with helping me stay healthy even with kids hacking and picking their noses :P

  • mark KissInk Lip Tintmarkers

    I had this in two shades, a red and a pinkish berry shade. The marker tip is on the larger side, but it wasn't difficult to apply. The color could be layered on, as it's like ink. They dried out quickly, so I didn't get to use them much.

  • It Cosmetics Double-Sided Defining & Highlighting Brush

    I've tried a lot of makeup brushes, but this one is my favorite. I don't usually shell out this kind of money on brushes because there are so many cheap but decent brushes out there. But this brush isn't just decent, it's fantastic. It's so soft! I know it's technically for highlighting and defining, and this dual ended brush does an amazing job at both of those tasks, due to the densely packed bristles. But I use it for foundation and concealer. The small end is perfect for putting concealer under my eyes, or other spots, and the large end is great for liquid foundation. I haven't had any problems with shedding or the ferrule loosening. It's a really good quality brush. However you chose to use this brush, it's amazing and a good investment.

  • Essence Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipgloss

    I tried a few of essence's products prior to these lipglosses and had been pretty impressed by the quality and fun colors that are available at this price point. This lipgloss isn't very good though. I tried it in two colors, a pastel pink and a medium fuschia. The colors are on the less pigmented side, and the texture is a little thicker than your average gloss. They do feel decently moisturizing/aren't drying, but the length of wear is about 2 hous. The packaging is good--the tube makes it easy to see how much product remains, and the weird spongy applicator takes a little getting used to. The price is amazing, of course, but I really disliked the scent/flavor of these. It was kind of sweet but also soapy? I couldn't quite put my finger on it. But I was done messing with them--they went in the trash.

  • MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme
    9.0

    MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme

    Good length of wear

    I don't usually wear lipstick, because I worry it will wear off poorly and look awful. But I will wear MAC ProLongwear lipcreams because I know it'll stay put. I actually own four of these! No, It won't make it all day, especially not if you're eating greasy food or whatever--I haven't met a lip product that will! But this is easy to apply, you can reapply it without having the product cake on you, and the colors range from sheer to opaque. The matte finish is a bit dry, and the price is a little more than MAC's regular lipsticks. It's a good product.
