    Aveeno Pure Renewal Conditioner

    First "pure" conditioner I've tried

    When I first got this conditioner I really wasn't sure what was so "pure" about it. Aren't shampoos the products with sulfates? How do sulfates effect the performance of a conditioner? Armed with these questions I tried this conditioner on my fine, color treated hair. I was actually surprised at how well it moisturized. There was lot of slip and I was able to run my wide tooth comb through it easily in the shower (I distribute conditioner through my hair in the shower with the wide tooth comb and let it sit for a few minutes under the steam before rinsing). I felt like the product was rinsed away easily and didn't see any evidence of build up in the week or so that I tried it. No breakouts along the hair line which is a big plus for me! My fine hair was not weighed down and my highlights looked brighter, not brassier so I have to say that it was a good conditioner for my hair type. Did I ever look up the answers to my questions? Nope, but I am still pleased with the results!

    Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo

    First Sulfate-free shampoo I've tried

    This being my first sulfate-free shampoo I was expecting it to have no lather of any kind and figured I'd have a limp mess as my hair is very fine. I was pleasantly surprised upon first use as there was a lot of lather! Though oddly enough even with all the lather I didn't feel like it spread through my hair as well as my normal shampoo so I did wind up using lots more product. As for results, my hair felt great, wasn't flat and didn't feel dry either. Coworkers remarked that my highlights looked brighter so I guess that's a bonus. All in all it was an okay shampoo but I wasn't totally wowed so I don't know if it is a buy for me.

  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream

    This is a very smooth, hydrating eye cream. I really enjoy using this each day and I apply it in the morning and before bed at night. It seems to be improving the fine lines in the corners of my eyes. My eye area looks so much brighter that I truly haven't used a highlighter pen or eye brightener since about the second or third day of application. Great eye cream with good results that won't break the bank!

  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

    I absolutely love this night moisturizer! I usually have a hard time finding a moisturizer that I can use at night due to my oily, acne prone skin. Everything is either too heavy or (as with most retinol products I have tried) dries me out and causes my skin to flake. This moisturizer goes on smoothly without any grease, has a light scent that fades quickly and absorbs well. When I get up in the morning my skin is not oily at all, it looks plump and smooth. Any bumps that I had when I started using this moisturizer have smoothed out and the breakouts I was developing are gone now! My skin definitely looks younger and less tired.

  • Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Smoothing and Straightening Spray

    I used this product on my long, fine, wavy hair for several days. I used about 10 sprays and then combed through to distribute, put on my makeup and used a T3 blow dryer and a large round brush (which I use each day to straighten my hair) to dry and finish the look. It seemed to take a bit longer to dry my hair but it could be because I was paying more attention since I was using a new product. I cannot say that it kept my hair straight for three days as advertised but it did give me aoft, straight hair with few flyaways/frizzies. After the three day mark my hair felt a bit greasy though so I wasn't entirely pleased with that but I think this is a pretty good product that could be used a couple times a week to help with straightening unruly hair. *The product's instructions call for using a flat iron which I do not own, and have never used before due to my hair being so fine, so the spray may work even better if you use it as such but I can't imagine a flat iron doing anything to combat the greasiness which is my only real complaint about this product.

  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Comforting cleanser

    My derm recommended this and though I always thought it was more for skin types that were dry I tried it on my acne prone skin. Wow, I was very surprised! I use retin A nightly which causes my skin to peel and sometimes become very irritated so when I used the Cetaphil for the first time and woke up with plump, soft skin I didn't know what to think. No more peeling, no more redness and best of all, no breakouts! I apply to a dry face, cleanse/rub in cirlces and then rinse sometimes using a soft cloth to remove any traces of makeup, etc. I do wish that Cetaphil would remove all of my make up (mascara, eyeliner) but alas that is what eye make up remover is for I suppose............

  • Victoria's Secret Mood Succulent Body Lotion

    This scent is so sweet and sexy all at once. I have been hoarding my bottle of perfume and lotion and only break it out in the fall. I think it smells like a sweet raspberry musk, if that makes any sense. It lasts all day long and my sons think it is yummy while my husband thinks it is "brown chicken brown cow!" If you get my drift.......as for moisturizing it is nice but I think of this lotion as more of a scent product and not so much a moisturizing product. Only 8 starts because it could be more moisturizing.

  • Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

    Smells great, isn't overly greasy and works really well. My cuticles are frequently a mess and if I do not concentrate on putting a heavy lotion or cream on them nightly they will be dry and ragged (I wash my hands constantly due to my job). I put this on at night and not only does it have a yummy citrus scent, it softens my cuticles and makes them more presentable!

  • Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder
    10.0

    Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

    Awesome, no shimmer

    I love this bronzer on my fair skin. I have it in the natural shade and though it looks so very dark in the pan a light touch will give me a gorgeous bronzed look without all the shimmer and glitter of so many bronzers. Doesn't make me look dirty/muddy or streaky at all. Very smooth application and lasts a long time on. Bobbi Brown has a great range of make up colors and there is a bronzer in her line for your coloring too!

  • Bobbi Brown All Over Bronzing Gel SPF 15

    I am a very pale girl and I love to try bronzers and self tanners. I got this last year and I love it. You can go very light or layer for a darker look. It does look scary coming out of the tube but it manages to be very natural looking on.
