  • La Mer The Eye Concentrate

    La Mer The Eye Concentrate

    Not good enough for the cost

    I used this eye cream for quite sometime and finally threw in the towel and moved on. The texture is great, not too thick, not too light and it moisturized well but I saw no noticable differences in my eyes when compared to what they looked like using another high end brand's eye cream. I gave it a 5 because of the nice texture, hydration and the fact that it didn't burn or irritate my eyes and the surrounding skin but for the price I don't feel that the end result can justify the purchase.

  • Too Faced Tanning Bed In A Tube

    I struggled to come up with an appropriate review for this product as I really like it...but not for what the label says it does! I really like the scent as in my opinion it doesn't stink like so many other self tanners and it gives me a soft glow but the glow doesn't last long and even though it is a gradual tanner it still takes too long to build. What I do like it for is a body bronzer. This lotion can give you a nice shimmery bronze glow on your legs, arms and shoudlers for sure. It is great for a summer evening out when you want to wear a sundress or something strapless. I also like that I never found a streak and it didn't turn my super pale skin orange. Unfortunately I think there are less expensive body brozers out there so I don't see me ever purchasing this product again.

  • Moroccanoil Treatment

    Moroccanoil Treatment

    Works well on my fine hair

    This oil works very well on my fine hair to protect it from heat styling and just gives my hair a nice sheen. I use a small amount on damp hair before blow drying or flat ironing and I think it really makes a difference. My hair is fine and doesn't look fried or frizzy when I use this product. Yes, it is expensive for such a small bottle but I use so little that it is definitely worth it.

  • Redken Blonde Glam Shampoo

    This is what was recommended by my stylist when I had my hair highlighted about a year and a half ago. I boug the liter sizes of both the shampoo and conditioner and used them exclusively for months. I think this shampoo smells very good and did seem to brighten my highlights for a while but then my hair became very dull and stayed that way until the next appointment for a touch up. Because I am new to highlighting my hair I can't say if the shampoo was to blame or if I should have expected the dullness after 6-8 weeks but I was a bit disappointed. I have been trying other products for the last couple of months and have alternated them with the Blonde Glam and had good results so maybe my hair has build up issues with this shampoo/conditioner. I don't use styling products other than a tiny bit of hairspray for flyaways or a dime size amount of moroccanoil on the ends.

  • L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    I use this hairspray more for fly away control where I part my hair so I can't really comment on how well it holds a more sophisticated style but for fly aways it is good. I like the fact that my hair doesn't look greasy or crunchy as some strong hold hairsprays can do. It holds well, through my 8+ hour work day and doesn't cause flakes or irritation on my somewhat sensitive scalp. The only real issues I have are the fragrance (waaayyy too strong for my liking) and the fact that I am constantly unclogging the sprayer. This stuff sets up in the sprayer like glue and I have to run hot water over it, chip away at it or use a small pin to break through the crust! Otherwise I can't complain as it works well and one can lasts me ages.

  • Secret Clinical Strength Original

    This is the anti-perspirant/deodorant that I use regularly. I like the fact that the scent is light and I don't feel like it is competing with my perfume as some others do. I find that it does come off on clothes if you don't give it a minute to dry but that has only happened to me once...lesson learned. I am a runner and I sweat, yes I know it is gross but it happens! I need a product that is going to work and work well to avoid the stinkiness and the moisture issues associated with a lot of physical activity. This product does what it says and I have been faithfully purchasing it since my first tube when it initially debuted. As for putting it on at night, I sometimes put it on after a bath or second shower in the evenings but I typically use it every morning. I know the theory of body temperature overnight is supposed to be one of its main features but it works just as well for me in the morning! The only reason I took off a star is due to the price. I do feel that it is a bit expensive but if it works, what can you do?

  • Neutrogena Body Oil

    Neutrogena Body Oil

    My favorite oil

    This is the best oil that I have used in the bath. I love to take baths in the winter with this oil as is it super hydrating. My skin is dry in the summer and drier in the cold winter months so I rely on this oil to soothe and hydrate. I can bathe with this and the softness lasts all night and the next day. Now that I read a previous review recommending mixing it with my body lotion I am going to try that too!

  • E.L.F Studio 3-in-1 Mascara
    10.0

    E.L.F Studio 3-in-1 Mascara

    My favorite "drugstore/low cost" mascara

    I ordered a tube of this mascara to round out a purchase I was making on their website (coupon code for certain purchase amount). Even though I got it a while ago I hadn't bothered to try it just assuming it would become my back up mascara at work for emergencies since I didn't have high hopes. I've never really been able to find a bargain mascara that didn't flake, clump or irritate my eyes but I am always open to trying a new brand/type, etc. so it was in that spirit that I decided to open this tube and give it a go! I love the wand with the ball at the end and the big teeth. The longer portion of the wand separates my lashes and coats them without leaving any clumps. The ball at the end is perfert for gettng those tiny lashes in the corner of my eyes and making the outer corner lashes longer without having to clump on multiple coats. I have yet to be forced into using a pin or lash comb when using this mascara either. It lasts all day without a single flake, which is important to me when wearing contacts, and I haven't had a single smudge over the last two weeks of use. Cheap? Yes. Cheap performance? No! Now I just wish I could get it in different colors....

  • E.L.F. Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine
    9.0

    E.L.F. Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine

    Love this budget product!

    I have several of these glosses and I must say that yes, the colors can be hit or miss but they are only $1 so I feel like I can afford to buy 5 and maybe have one color that I'm just okay with. They are appropriately sticky, not gloppy or goopy, they last on lips for a good while, the colors are typically sheer and some have shimmer. Also, maybe my favorite part, they have SPF! I carry one in my beach bag, my purse, in my "gloss cup" at work, by my bed, in my makeup bags, etc. Though not all budget beauty buys are worth it (you wind up going out and buying the higher cost item if the lower cost version stinks) I feel like for $1 you just can't beat these glosses!

  • Vaseline Total Moisture Body Lotion

    **I received this lotion in a tube/bottle with no name to review so my opinion would not be influenced by the brand name. I tried this lotion for a few days in place of my regular lotion and body cream. I tried it first on dry skin in the evening before bed as a part of my regular routine. It absorbed well and the scent, which was clean, faded quickly. The moisture was rather light and the texture was smooth. When I woke the next morning my skin was relatively soft but not as soft and supple as it usually is with the heavier creams and lotions I typically use. I also applied the lotion after my morning shower, when my skin was still slightly damp. It did not soak in as quickly as it did on dry skin but did not take much more effort so it wasn't a huge issue. As the day went on my skin didn't feel particularly dry but it did not feel as moisturized as I like. I used this product over a period of a few days and the results were the same each time. Basically I enjoyed the fact that the scent faded quickly as I prefer my lotion to moisturize and my perfume to scent (and not clash) but the moisture was too light for my skin. I liked that I didn't feel sticky after applying and the texture was smooth. I would recommend this product for those that do not need a lot of moisture or prefer a lighter lotion during the summer months.
