  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

    I must have tried every acne medication known to man in the last few years. I am in college now and thank goodness I have my skin under control but very unfortunately this was not the case during high school, and as a result I was a pretty miserable and withdrawn teenager, to say the least. I did the whole proactive thing, did not work for me in the least bit. If anything it made my skin worst. I have friends who it did work for, so I guess it just depends on the individual. I tried a prescription medication that I can't even remember the name of right now but what I do remember is it making my face completely flaky and red, basically a year-round sun burn that was also extremely painful. In my senior year of high school, I started using this Neutrogena face wash and tea tree oil of all things, 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil + FREE Blemish Roll-on Stick with Tea Tree Oil. Maybe I was using too many different medications on face or maybe I just grew out of the acne phase, but regardless I would do anything to go back to my freshman year and give my freshman pimple faced self a simple concoction of tea tree oil and Neutrogena face wash. I have used this particular brand of Neutrogena for quite a while now but I have also used their foam acne wash and it worked just as well. Since I started washing my face each night with the face wash and applying the tea tree oil before going to bed, I have not had one major break out in the past three years. Not one! This is coming from a girl who had acne that could be mistaken for big gross looking blisters all through high school. I love Neutrogena and I love tea tree oil and if you are struggling with acne, once you try them I know you will love them too.

  • Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion

    Aveeno is a great brand. Almost all of their baby products are staples in my household. This particular lotion is very easy on the skin, of course good for babies, and it absorbs no problem. It's not abrasive and doesn't require a lot of effort to work into their skin. The pump packaging system is convenient too because it only takes 1 hand instead of two. I try to lotion up my little girl before dressing her so at times it seems like I need 6 hands! Having one free helps and it keeps her safer I think. I've taken to using the Aveeno in combatting my baby's diaper rash as well. A dab of Aveeno on top of the butt paste rash cream (All Natural Boudreaux's Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment + FREE Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion) seems to seal the cream in better and soothe/relieve my baby's discomfort sooner, especially if it's sitting overnight. It's cleared up the next morning which is great.

  • TRESemme TRES TWO EXTRA HOLD HAIR SPRAY

    I have long but super fine, thin hair. I've always had trouble using hairspray because all it ever did was weigh down my hair, make it really unmanageable and stuck together, or hard as a rock. This hairspray I bought on a whim and I probably won't buy any other hairspray but this from now on. It's so light I could spray all day and my hair wouldn't get weighed down. On top of that, it holds whatever style I decide to do very well. It's easy to brush out, doesn't make my hair stick together and gives it so much volume. I realized it actually improves the look of my hair in another way: my hair can get really oily after sleeping on it so I have to pretty much wash my hair right away each morning, but one night I after I had slept with a bunch of this hair spray in, my hair was SO nice looking the next day and still voluminous! Not oily at all! It wasn't a fluke either--it happens each time I use this hairspray. I love this hairspray and I would definitely recommend it, especially for those who have fine hair.

  • Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

    This product is really great. I have tried all the more expensive hair care products thinking they would do magic on my hair but this product beats them all by far. If you use it on dry hair-I would not recommend this because your hair will look greasy but if you use it on your hair when it is wet and then blow dry or air dry- your hair will be super shiny and have less frizz. My hair is seriously damaged and if I just let it dry naturally or even blowdrying it looks really bad and you can tell how damaged it is. When I use sleek and shine before I dry it it looks super healthy and shiny. I would definitely recommend this product. Also I have thick wavy hair that is damaged so I don't know if it would affect other hair types differently. Definitely worth the price.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector Straigtening Mist

    Maybe there is some kind of effect they are trying to get, but there are many other flat iron sprays that don't have alcohol in it. It's a good spray, though. It does smell good, and when I flat iron with it, it leaves hair glossier and (at least I think) that my hair stays straight longer. I found the only way this works and leaves my hair nice is by air drying. Probably because the alcohol evaporates with the water, as my hair dries. Anyway, glad to know others had success. I made the mistake of spraying a bit of this on my hair while dry, thinking it would give my hair a burst of moisture - as my hair was frizzing a bit, and my hair parched up really nastily. I'd recommend this to someone with normal/oil hair.

  • It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
    9.0

    It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product

    Silky smooth, repaired, without grease!

    This stuff is amazing on dry, heat damaged hair! It leaves hair soft without leaving that greasy over-conditioned texture left by many leave ins. I have really long hair though so I need a lot of it after showers. I can't justify spending QUITE this much on a leave in conditioner.. I just wish there was a little more product. If it's worth it to you, then go for it!

  • Suave Professionals Shine Shampoo with Moroccan Argan Oil

    This shampoo, with it's refreshing and smooth Argan-infused scent, truly does leave hair with a soft healthy shine after use! It also leaves hair soft to the touch, with little frizz. However, be warned, it does not amp up volume at all. That's the only thing keeping this gem from a 10!

  • Suave Professionals Sleek Conditioner

    This creamy and yummy smelling conditioner truly does leave (even air dried!) hair sleek and smooth! Hair generally dries soft to the touch with little frizz. However, this conditioner will do absolutely nothing for volume! Not that it says it will, but just a warning :)
