  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Inexpensive, ineffective

    This cleanser does not do a good job of removing even light makeup or concealer on the face. Furthermore, if you really want to get rid of oil on your nose or T-zone, this really doesn't cut it. I have switched to Shiseido Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam, and it's amazing.

  • Shiseido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam

    I have tried so many cleansers on my sensitive skin which is sometimes dry and sometime oily. This product makes a wonderful rich later when you use just a tiny bit and rub your hands together. It removes makeup and also greasy waterproof makeup-remover. I just love it! It gets rid of the oil without drying out your face. A+

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara

    Changed my mind about drugstore products!

    Wow! As a test drive I applied this mascara after a long day when my lashes and eyes were a bit greasy, and right before I went to the gym for a long haul work out. I got home, the mascara was perfectly in place, and my lashes looked long, full, and defined. I think this product is spectacular. While I see some people find the brush unwieldy, I actually like how full the brush is because you can really coat all of your lashes. I had no trouble with application. I will continue to use this product! A !

  • Shiseido The Makeup Distinguish Mascara

    I adore this product! Once it is on, it really is waterproof, although I find it removes easily with waterproof make-up remover. It coats lashes nicely, and I find the brown shade looks very natural with my light skin tone. My only gripe is that the brush is not quite perfect. Sometimes it can be a bit clumpy, but if you just run your fingers over to remove the clumps, it is great! I would definitely buy this product again, especially after I tried DiorShow which was awful.

  • Dior Diorshow Waterproof
    3.0

    Dior Diorshow Waterproof

    Did not live up to the hype!

    So, I finally bought this mascara after all the hype -- as Sephora praises this to the high heavens. The only reason I think they do it, is because it turns a true profit at a whopping $24. I applied this mascara at 7pm one night, only to find that when I got home at midnight that it had run under my eyes! This supposedly waterproof formula was anything but. I did, however, like the brush very much. I felt it covered my lashes well. So, A for application and F for its wear. Furthermore, although it came off under my eyes, when it came time to remove it with my Lancome waterproof make-up remover, it did not budge. I ended up losing a few eye-lashes. I did give the mascara another several tries, and each time I had the same racoon eyes a few hours in.

  • Neutrogena Sunless Tanning Foam

    This tanner is wonderful. It is easy to apply, non-smelly, great on the face, and dries super quickly so you can get dressed and go. I couldn't ask for more. The medium/dark is the way to go if you have non-super-fair skin and want a nice glow. The light would be only for very pale complexions. The smell is great too!

  • Shiseido Facial Cotton

    I love this cotton. It is super soft, and great for makeup removal and/or using a toner. I would never use anything else -- it's so abrasive in comparison!

  • Aveda Volumizing Tonic
    5.0

    Aveda Volumizing Tonic

    Somewhat effective, gross texture

    My stylist recommended this product to be sprayed at the roots of my fine, curly hair before blow-drying it straight. She emphasized that you don't need much, and if you use to much it will be sticky. I used just a bit, and saw no results. Once I used a bit more, my hair, instead of feeing smooth and nice like it usually does, felt sticky, as if I had used a crappy hair spray. I would not recommend this product.

  • Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner
    1.0

    Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner

    Neither conserved color nor conditioned

    I find this conditioner really useless. It is thin and weak, so you need a ton of it to actually cover your head of hair. My pretty brown/red highlighted got totally brassy even when using this conditioner and shampoo. And, in the end, after you've used a ton of it to cover your hair, even if you leave it in for a while, my hair never felt nice afterwards. I'd use VO5 or whatever over this expensive product.

  • Aquaphor Healing Ointment

    Aquaphor Healing Ointment

    Best thing ever for lips!

    For the past several years I have used Aquaphor as my sole lip balm/chap stick/you name it. My lips have never been dry since! I have had many surgeries on my mouth, and I was always warned that my lips would get irritated, but they never did thanks to Aquaphor!
