  • Curel Hand & Cuticle Therapy Cream

    My hands gets the most dry during the winter time when it's cold outside and all the moisture just magically disappears from my skin. This hand & cuticle therapy cream is just the perfect miracle worker that helps relieve my dry, chapped hands. Especially the area between the thumb and index finger is usually so dry that it's white, but after applying this cream, that area is back to skin color! Since the formula contains soymilk, monoi oil and vitamin E, it actually also helps to prevent broken nails by strengthening cuticles. As a girl that constantly paints her nail, this feature is very important to me to have strong, healthy cuticles. The last part that I like about this cream is how it absorbs quickly and softens my hands immediately. Even after I washed my hands, it still made my hands feel soft and smooth. In fact, it makes my hand feel so touchable and I can't stop rubbing my hands together. There isn't much of a scent to this cream, but it's not too strong. Lastly, it's dermatologist tested and scientifically proven to be never greasy. The fact that absorbs so quickly probably is why it's never greasy, so it's won't smudge and grease up other things. Although, I wasn't the one who bought this, I'm glad that my boyfriend did buy it and that I got to try this advanced ceramide therapy cream. It proves that this product works well for everyone and that it really does instantly soften even the driest hands. Overall, I would recommend this product for anyone who is looking for a lotion that can soften dry hands. It's great for the wintertime, since there isn't much sunlight, so SPF is not very necessary. However, adding SPF would be one way to make this cream a must have all year around!

  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner 2 in 1

    Personally, I'd like to stay away from two in one products because they're usually not as good as getting the shampoo and conditioner separately and that's why I took off a star. Other than that, this product leaves my hair smelling vibrantly fresh and more importantly smooth even till the end of the second day from washing my hair. In the shower, it provides a nice lather, and cleans out my hair well. I've tried the Herbal Essence Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner separately, and believe that provides optimal results. So if you don't have a lot of time to spend in the shower, then this two in one product is for you. If you want longer lasting results, and even smoother hair, get the shampoo and conditioner separately. Although, I was the one who recommended my boyfriend to buy this product, my boyfriend actually loves the smell of this product so much that he was the one who's been repurchasing it since. I think we're up to our third or fourth bottle by now and I'm probably going to continue to buy more in the future. I really believe in this product and more importantly believe that it works. The smell that I'm actually in love with is a fusion of Hawaiian coconut and orchid. The shampoo also has botanical silk that cleans to reveal natural shine. It's the combination of the wonderful coconut smell with orchid with the botanical silk that leaves my hair smelling so refreshing good and smooth. I usually take a handful of this product and dab it all over my hair, leaving it for a few minutes before finally washing it out for results that can last days. Trust me, this product is great for both genders (my boyfriend would agree) and it'd do wonders for your hair; give it a try!

  • Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion

    In comparison to the regular clinique clarifying lotion, this product is not as good simply because of the extra step to mix the white powder residue that's at the bottom of this bottle. Hence the minus one star. However, in conjunction with the three-step system, this bottom is a vital step in maintaining clear skin. Right after I wash my face and wipe with a clean towel, I take a cotton wipe and dab a bit of this on to my entire face. It leaves my skin feeling refreshingly smooth. I share this with my boyfriend, so I'm almost done with this entire bottle. It really says something about a product if I'm actually able to finish it, because most products get thrown away before it even gets close to finishing.

  • Victoria's Secret Everything Refresher Spray
    10.0

    Victoria's Secret Everything Refresher Spray

    Everything? Yeah Everything!

    This refresher spray has a lovely citrusy mint scent that just brightens the atmosphere every time I use it. The product itself is made from 100% vegan ingredients and 100% post-consumer recycled material! So it's good for you and the environment! Sometimes I even spray my room with it because It's so light and smells so good. If I want to wear this scent, I usually spray the air in front of me, and then walk through it and viola, I smell nice and refreshed!

  • Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Cream
    8.0

    Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Cream

    Strange Scent and Relatively Effective

    It's hard to tell if these product is really working at repairing the area around my eyes since I am still relatively wrinkle-free. I would recommend applying this gently with your ring finger since that's the most delicate touch on your ever so delicate eyes. I generally dab a small amount around the bottom of my eyes and swiping up around the corners. Remember, prevention is key! I wouldn't be surprised if I remain wrinkle-free a lot longer than I thought!

  • E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick
    8.0

    E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick

    Strange scent that I actually like!

    I got this all over cover stick as a concealer in light color. I figured getting a lighter color would help conceal dark circles under my eyes which it does. Also I strangely like the scent of it, but can't quite name what the scent is similar to. It's probably somewhat of a citrusy orange scent. The texture of this stick is creamy if you smear a bit and rub through your fingers to warm it up before applying it areas that need the extra concealing. Works relative well, my only complaint is that it doesn't work well if you try using a brush to pick up the product. Other than that, this product is worth trying since it is only $1!

  • E.L.F. All Over Color Stick

    This product is meant to applied anywhere: eyes, lips, and face; but I mainly just use it for my cheeks. It's hard to pick up the product using any type of brushes. So I usually just end up either directly smearing a bit onto both cheeks which can comes out dramatically strong, or using my fingers to apply a small tint to my cheeks. So overall it's really just a cheap product that can use a bit of better quality to it. I think it may be something worth trying as others may have better luck applying this or finding it useful to apply to other areas but this product just wasn't for me. The shade Persimmon has a nice sparkle to it, but it's a dull shade and really doesn't make the cheeks pop.

    E.L.F. All Over Color Stick

    Good Pigment But Hard to Apply

    I know this product is meant to applied anyhere, eyes, lips, and face; but I mainly just use it for my cheeks. It's hard to pick up the product using any type of brushes and I just don't like the idea of applying non-lip products to my lips. So I usually just end up either directly smearing a bit onto both cheeks which can come out dramatically strong, or using my fingers to apply a small tint to my cheeks. So overall it's really just a cheap product that can use a bit of better quality to it. I think it may be something worth trying as others may have better luck applying this or finding it useful to apply to other areas but this product just wasn't for me.

  • Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara

    This waterproof mascara is good but I don't think it's for me. The length of the brush is larger than normal mascara brushes that I've had in the past and the brush makes it hard to maneuver around my short lashes. The mascara also comes on slightly clumpy because of the length and shape of the brush. The waterproof part is great and it can last all day without smudging. However, it's also very tough to remove with the makeup remover that I have. Ultimately, this mascara did not give me results that I hoped for.

  • Victoria's Secret Energizing Body Wash with Organic Citrus & Mint

    Just like the lotion, this body wash has a great citrus smell. The mint is subtle, but the secret to it being energizing is that there is a bit of caffeine from coffee beans, so I don't really use it when I shower at night. However, this body wash is great to use in the morning when I need that extra boost of energy and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and radiant! In addition, the product is made from 100% vegan ingredients and the bottle itself is made of 46% post-consumer recycled materials so it's not only good for your skin but also good for the environment! The only downside to this product is that it does come out a little chunky and thick, which makes it difficult to squeeze out hence the minus one star.
