  • Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo
    1.0

    Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo

    Smells great, but there's a catch...

    This is by far one of the worst Garnier products I have ever used. It smells delightful, but it actually made the problem ten times worse. No matter how much rinsing you do, you're also left with some of the blue scrubbing dots stuck to your scalp. Not hot!! Plus, this did nothing to help the dryness and it made me scalp itch like crazy. When in doubt, use Jason's Tes Tree Shampoo which will rebalance your scalp, whether it's dry or flaky, and you won't have to worry about it getting gross beyond words. I would never recommend this product to a soul.

  • Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo

    Total Beauty sent me this shampoo (along with the matching conditioner) to use and review. It took me a little longer to use the shampoo because I'm not a huge fan of Pantene's shampoos, but I decided to give this one a shot. The first time I used it, I used it only on the length of my hair (which is everything, but my scalp). For that it seemed to do a relatively decent job, but on the 2nd try, it underperformed in ways that a less expensive shampoo won't, so I can't recommend this with a high rating. It wasn't super moisturizing and it didn't do anything that other shampoos can't do. I personally wouldn't buy this, but again, I've not a fan of Pantene shampoos. Plus, this dried out my scalp beyond words, so if you're going to use anything from this moisturizing line, I'd go with the conditioner which works nicely.

  • Pantene Pro-V Moisture Renewal Conditioner
    8.0

    Pantene Pro-V Moisture Renewal Conditioner

    Nice, new conditioner from Pantene

    Total Beauty sent this product to me and asked me to use it for three days, and review it. For one, they sent me an enormous bottle. I will be using this for many months, that's for sure. This is one of the most healing of all Pantene's conditioners. I was very surprised that it worked at all, seeing as how a lot of conditioners pretty much do the same thing. Detangle and soften, and we tend to stick with what works best for our hair, budget, and what smells best to us. It's a very individual thing. I found this product very healing, very softening and smoothing. If you heat treat your hair regularly, give this a try. If you heat treat your hair a few times a week or even just once a week, this is still worth a shot. If you're a fan of Pantene shampoo, pair this with the shampoo that works best for you. I chose to pair this with a different shampoo because my hair doesn't respond well to most Pantene shampoos. I found the reslts very pleasing though. It left my hair extremely moisturized for several days at a time and I didn't experience any greasiness as an after affect. I'm pleased with this product. I don't know if I would buy it on my own, but I enjoy using it.

  • Dior Skinflash Primer
    10.0

    Dior Skinflash Primer

    One of the best!

    I'm supremely selective about the primers I use, but this product was recommended to me a few years ago and I decided to splurge. It it one of the most expensive make-up items I use (not the most expensive, but high on the list), but I have found it to be worth it. This works extremely well with my beyond fair complexion. It leaves my skin radiant, beautifully hydrated, and this product works well with whatever foundation you may or may not use, from mineral make-up to the more traditional foundations. This gives you a beautiful "lit from within" glow. 100% worth it..

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Lustrous Touch Smoothing Shampoo

    John Frieda has a great line of products, regardless of your hair color. I like to change things up on occasion, but I'm a natural brunette and I always go back to my natural color. This shampoo works and is affordable. It's one of the better shampoos at doing what it says it will do in terms of hydration. Used in conjunction with the conditioner, these are great staples. I love the smell, I don't find it artificial or too chocolately, and I like that my hair feels soft and clean.

  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Hairspray

    Even though I've never personally noticed a color change with hair spray, I do use this occasionally when I'm blonde. It works well and isn't difficult to get out of my hair at the end of the day, which is a bonus if you hate using a lot of product.

  • Smashbox Eye Shadow

    Smashbox Eye Shadow

    Smashbox Singles

    I've been using Smashbox eye shadow for as long as I can remember. I love the trios and the quads, but I'm also a big fan of the singles since occasionally those are the colors that are my regular go-to shades. I've got about eight or nine of these and each one performs just as well as any eye shadow in the same price range or in a lower price bracket. As long as you use a good primer, these colors should work really well for you once you find ones you're happy with.

  • Smashbox Arced Liner Brush #21
    9.0

    Smashbox Arced Liner Brush #21

    A great tool to own

    This brush works great if you have patience, use a light hand, and have a liner that performs really well. I have used this with Smashbox liners, Bare Minerals, Lancome, etc. I can only use this if I have patience, but when I do, this is the brush that does the job the best. In many ways, it's easier than a straight brush because it angles in, but sometimes you have to use a few different brushes to achieve the correct look for your eye shape.

  • Essie Good to Go Top Coat
    1.0

    Essie Good to Go Top Coat

    Very disappointed

    I'm a big fan of Essie polish, and I purchased this top coat because it had come highly recommended. Guess what, if I want an expensive top coat to peel, be scratched up in a matter of hours, and make my manicures look horrible, I am sure there are others out therre that can achieve the exact same results that this one so unfortunately provides. I'd toss it in the trash if it hadn't cost so much money. I went back to using Out The Door which performs at a much higher level of quality and even if I've gone 3-4 weeks between manicures, my polish doesn't look horrendous. I hope Essie has better top coats out there because this one makes the entire line look bad.

  • Mally Poreless Perfection Skin Finisher

    This is that rare Mally product that I hate with every fiber of my being. There's nothing "skin finishing" or "pore perfecting" about this product. It's messy, leaves you looking disgusting, and can ruin a full face of make-up the second its applied. Why people think this is so fantastic, I have no idea, but I openly admit that every time I received one in a kit, I sold it on Ebay to someone that actually wanted/needed it. I wouldn't recommend this to a single living soul. Sorry Mally, I love you, but this stuff stinks!!
