  • Giorgio Armani Armani Code for Women Eau De Parfum

    I am not sure how to describe this fragrance other than sophisticated and sexy. It's more of an evening fragrance, but I've worn it during the day also. I really do love the scent but unfortunately it sometimes makes me sniffly and sneezy, so I've only used it a few times. I like it too much to get rid of it though...

  • Gillette Custom Plus Pivot Disposable Razor

    My fiance and I both use these. I can buy them in bulk from Costco! They're not the BEST razors--they don't have the fancy handle or moisturizing strip or extra blades--but they do a decent job of shaving and you can just toss them after a few shaves (having a new razor prevents razorburn more than anything else for me).

  • Burt's Bees Hand Salve

    First of all, I love that Burt's Bees products are not only earth friendly and natural, but also adorably packaged, AND they're headquartered in my old college town of Durham, North Carolina! But onto the product. I really like this hand salve a lot. It has kind of an earthy, herbally scent (rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus are included in the ingredients). It's a bit pungent, and if you're used to florally sweet products, this will be a bit of a change. The texture is a little hard as a solid in the tin, and you'll have to scrape some out. However, it quickly becomes more spreadable in consistency due to the heat of your body. It sitll applies rather thick and a little greasy. It's definitely more of a hand treatment than a product you can throw on and then go about doing things. But when your hands are really in need of some TLC, this stuff is great. The tin is huge and will last for quite awhile.

  • Amika Obliphica Pure Oil

    I have a lot of hair. It's been bleached and color damaged several times over, so it needs a little TLC. However, many hair serums just end up making my hair look greasy and heavy. This product didn't. I was worried since it says it's pure oil (it's not, as TheLacqueredLady pointed out), and it's fairly thick. But it really made my hair look and feel healthy again! The scent is faint but pleasant, and it was hard to over apply (I ended up using quite a bit more than the directions suggested, but I added a little at a time and it looked great). It doesn't make my hair look greasy at all.

  • Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

    It's basically like black glue that you put on your face and peel off, which peels off the top layer of skin (yes, it is a little bit painful... like peeling a huge band-aid off your face). Maybe my face looked ever so slightly rejuvenated and luminized, but the effect isn't worth the effort. It's quite messy to apply. It's the texture of Elmer's glue, and a very pigmented black, which is difficult to wash off of your hands. You have to apply a VERY THICK layer of the mask to your face (thick enough that it's completely opaque) and then let it dry COMPLETELY before attempting to peel it off. Be sure to avoid any whispy hairs on the sides of your face, your eyebrows, and leave plenty of space around your eyes as well. Otherwise, you're in for some trouble trying to pick that stuff out of your hair! Even doing these things, there was still some leftover mask left on my face, which I had to try and scrape off my face/scrub off with some face wash and baking soda. The little bits of mask will stick to your sink as well. I'd skip this.

  • Prai Ageless Throat and Decolletage Creme

    If your neck and decolletage need a moisturizer, this one is pretty nice (although really, it seems a little unnecessary to have a product specifically for this area). It has a faint scent, not offensive. The price is comparable to that of department store facial moisturizers. I did not notice any tightening or other effects.

  • Signature Club A Precious Moroccan Argan Oil Oasis Day Cream SPF 25

    It looks and smells and feels like regular sunscreen. It's a little on the thicker side. When I first applied it, I was pretty disappointed because it seemed so ordinary (thick and a little heavy feeling), and I was concerned that my oily skin would end up looking shiny and greasy, and breaking out. But it did dry down to a nice light matte finish, and I didn't have any issues. Even through the hot weather and a gym workout, it didn't budge underneath my makeup. No irritation or breakouts. I'm pretty impressed.

    LORAC TANtalizer Lips with Benefits

    Pretty color, good formula

    I have this in "Chuck", which is a pretty deep nude color--"my lips but better" sort of look. It's a great everyday color. The formula is thick and creamy but not too sticky. It looks super cute in the tube--I love how the two colors are kind of swirled together, and the packaging is decent too. It comes with the standard doe foot applicator. I felt that it was decently moisturizing and long lasting too. It's just a little more expensive than I like for a gloss.

  • intelliWHiTE PRO WHiTE Professional Toothpaste w/ Fluoride & Xylitol

    I wouldn't splurge on this toothpaste--the minty taste/flavor is subtle (which some may like) but I don't feel that it does as good of a job cleaning or whitening as my regular brand of toothpaste that I picked up at Costco. It also seems to be making my teeth more sensitive than usual.

  • Lancome Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara

    You have to work with this a little to really get the full effect. If you apply it straight out of the tube, your lashes will be super clumpy. The s-shaped curve of the brush picks up too much product, is a little scratchy, and makes it a little more difficult to apply than your traditional mascara brush. The formula can volumize a bit, but the main effect is that my lashes seem to look longer. The formula itself is alright--no flaking or smudging. But there are so many other mascaras out there that work just as well. Skip this.
