Sally Hansen Complete Manicure
Unless you have a lot of time to dry your nails thoroughly (and when I say thoroughly, I mean give it 40 minutes!), I recommend skipping this "all-in-one" product. It chipped way too easily (not even the most inexpensive polish I use chips!) and was so badly scuffed up after a few days that I have no idea how SH can claim this is a 10-14 day wearable polish. Normally I am a big fan of SH products, but this one is not one I can recommend to anyone. If you're going to spend the money on this, you might as well get a bottle of OPI, China Glaze, or Essie and at least that will give you the quality you're looking for.

What was I thinking?
Aside from having a coupon that heavily discounted this item, I think I was drawn in by the advertising and the rich colors. Immense disappointment. These colors don't wear well (I am never without eye primer), flake, can start to cake really easily, and all in all look gunky. I didn't walk out the door like that, but when I came home and looked in the mirror, I was APALLED and have vowed to never buy another Maybelline product no matter how well hyped it is.

Excellent cleansing cloth/make-up remover
I've been using these clothes for a little under a year. Not only does my skin feel clean after use when I haven't worn make-up, but it's excellent at getting my make-up off at the end of the day. With similar products I need to use 2-3 wipes in order to remove all of my eye make-up, but with this brand, only one cloth. It gets all of the mascara and liner without making my skn greasy or leaving sticky residue behind. With continued use, your skin will feel nice and smooth every time you use these. I might try one other natural brand, but I'm pretty pleased with these.

BioSilk Fruit Cocktail
I've used this product on and off for years. Whenever I go back to it my hair practically breathes a sigh of relief, as it responds really well to all BioSilk products. This product especially is great if you color your hair or have highlights, as it will help smooth your hair out and make it silky and shiny. It's pricey, yes, but can be found for less if you shop around before buying it. All around good product to use,

3 Minute Miracle
I tried this product based off of everyone's reviews on this site. I don't know if I'll be buying it again, but I do like using it on occasion. It smells great and doesn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy. It's a very improved Aussie product.

Clairol Foam Color
I just used this for the first time a few nights ago. It is so much easier than regular color. In fact, I could't even finish the bottle because the foam covered all of my hair leaving about 1/4 of foam left. That rarely, if ever, happens to me with regular hair color. It sets in 25 minutes, but I suppose you could leave it in for another 10 to deepen certain colors. I used the natural Dark Brown and my only issue with it is that it's NOT a true Espresso Brown as shown on the box. In fact, it dried to my natural hair color, which I haven't seen in years! The Natural Dark Brown has red highlights in it, so if this isn't what you're looking for, go with another color or brand. One other issue is that even though my hair rinsed completely clean, the color left residue behind. Plus, this can stain your skin for days, so if it drops anywhere, wipe it off your skin immediately. I don't know if I will use this particular brand/color again, but I will definirely be trying out the other foam/mousse products on the market to see which one works best for me. The gloss conditioner this came with left my hair feeling salon silky, as opposed to "just colored". I wish that product was sold on its own, its great.

Wen Cleasing Conditioner
I bought a set of each scent and was excited to try them out. Unfortunately, all but the Sweet Almond Mint were a MAJOR disappointment. This one in particular left my naturally wavy/curly hair GREASY as all h@!!. Initially my hair felt like silk, but later in the day it was disgusting. I wouldn't recommend this to a soul!

Shimmer Lights Shampoo
I use this when I have blonde highlights. It keeps them from going brassy. Don't let the color scare you. The only thing I dislike about this product is the smell. Not a fan of that, but when you're maintaining blonde hair or highlights, using this once in a while is a good idea to protect your investment.

Pacifica Blood Orange Body Wash
Yes, this is a low-lathering product, even with my trusty loofah, but it doesn't dry out my skin like a lot of other body washes, and it rinses clean. I love the smell of this as well, it's a great year-round mood booster. I also like that there isn't a funky color to the product. It's no longer necessary for companies to add dye to a product simply to show us that it's "orange" or "apple", etc. This is definitely one of the better naturals on the market.

I'm a natural espresso brunette, but when I get my hair highlighted, I end up with about 7 or 8 different shades of blonde over a naturally dark base. This is one of the conditioners I use when I "go blonde". It keeps my hair soft, silky, reminds me to use sunscreen to protect the color before leaving the house, and it really helps the color last about a year, providing I haven't already decided to go back to my natural color, and flip over to being a redhead by then. LOL. It is on a pricier end of things, but if you use it a few times a week, it's worth it. If you're a natural blonde and want to use this product, invest in the larger bottles. They can be found on Ebay, often for less than what you'd pay in the salon.
