    (seed) Nourishing Body Lotion

    Aromatherapy Long lasting Body Lotion

    This is a great, lightweight, non greasy formula that really does moisturize your skin! I love that the formula doesnt make you feel sticky at all, it just soaks into your skin so quickly and stays moisturized. For me, I put it on at night, and it lasts throughout the entire next day! I have the Sage and Lavender scented one which has a really nice soothing aroma thats very faint. Its also made with natural ingredients and its eco friendly, which is a big plus for me =) I would recommend this lotion for any skin type because its so lightweight but does the job!

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Scrub

    I got this because I have been breaking out recently so I needed a gentle scrub for my face. This is definetly a gentle scrub! It doesnt contain too many grains in it so you dont get a harsh exfoliation out of it and it wont inflame your zits, which is nice. I think its gentle enough so you can use it everyday too! Smells really nice, a minty sort of scent and you dont need a lot. I use it about every other day. Its a bit pricy for a scrub and I really havent been able to tell if it helped with my pimples, but its still great to use just as a daily exfoliator.

  • The Body Shop Watermelon Born Lippy Balm

    I got this lipbalm because a fellow beauty blogger recommended it.. but it just wasnt moisturizing enough for me. I tend to get really dry lips that will sometimes peel because its so dry. The texture is nice, its kind of jelly like, and it has a slightly glossy finish. You need quite a bit to really get it on your lips because it applies just a thin layer. The smell is fantastic too! However, it only lasted about 1-2 hours on my lips and then my lips were dry again. So it comes off really easily and you need to reapply a lot throughout the day to keep your lips moist. It was 2 for $10 when I got it, but I think there are way better alternatives for around the same amount of money.

  • Avon Advance Techniques Color Reviving Shampoo

    This is an awesome shampoo and for the price, you cant really go wrong. I dont have color treated hair, but this shampoo makes my hair so soft! I live in a humid climate also so my hair can tend to get frizzy and poofy, but this shampoo tames it down a lot and really makes my hair look healthy. They sell a conditioner also, but the shampoo is so great you really dont need a conditioner with this. Maybe just to condition every few days. It doesnt leave build up either and it smells great!

  • Joico spiker water-resistant styling glue

    This is a really hard product to work with because its like an actual glue for your hair. Its a thick white paste with a glue like texture. Its really really sticky and it will stick to your fingers quickly if your not careful. It dries fast so you want to work it in quickly before it hardens. Once you get it on your hair, your hair will feel like you really put actual glue in your hair. Extreme hold and hard to get out, but lasts all day long, even in humidity!

  • Aussie Sprunch Hair Spray (Aerosol)

    This is good working spray... not necessarily a hairspray you would use if you wanted curls to hold. Its a great everyday hairspray because you dont get that hardness, so it definetly does what it claims, which is flexibile hold. Its not too great with humidity though, if you live in a humid climate or its summertime, it tends to make hair a little limp. Its easy to work with and the price is unbeatable. Great value!

  • Aussie Sun-Touched Shine Hi Hold + Hi Shine Hair Spray

    This hairspray is good if you really want some hold, but it does leave you with a hard hat! The shine part was ok, it was a little shiny, but not as shiny as expected or claimed. I used it on two different hair types... for thick hair, it worked fine, but for thin and soft hair, it didnt do so well... This is a good spray to have if you just want an everyday hairspray. Its really really affordable and the spray comes with a lot of product.

  • MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer
    7.0

    MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

    Good but will crease

    I really like that this concealer has an SPF, which is great because theres not a lot of concealers that have SPF. I also like that it is water resistant and it lasts pretty long. However, if you dont set it right, it tends to crease and move. I like the texture though because it is creamy enough to use under the delicate eye area and it also covers blemishes considering its light and creamy texture. Its about the same size as their eyeshadows so I think the value of this product is pretty good for what you spend. I just wish they sold the refill version so you could create a customized concealer palette.

  • MAC Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye

    MAC Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye

    Great primer for concealer

    Although this product states that it combats puffiness and dark circles, I didnt really see a difference. Its more of a primer for your concealer. It allows your concealer to just glide on and it helps it to stay in place. It is light reflecting though so it would be great to wear alone if your in a rush and dont have the time to do your entire face. I didnt really care for the pump because it pumps out too much product, so I feel its a bit wasteful for such a small bottle. Its a bit pricey as well, so Im not sure how many uses I will get out of this. Texture is great, but didnt quite live up to its claims.

  • MAC Face and Body

    MAC Face and Body

    Almost like a Tinted Moisturizer

    I got this product because I needed a foundation that was water resistant. It was long lasting, but it was very very sheer, almost like a tinted moisturizer. You have to shake it before use because if not, the water will seperate and when you go to pour it out it will be watery and not have much color. It did give a really nice finish, almost like an airbrushed look. I think its best used with either a duo fibre or stippling brush since the formula is not thick at all. Its a great foundation you can mix easily to get the right shade. It contains a whole lot of product so its a good value for your money, especially if you are going to be using this everyday. A little goes a long way with this one.
