  • John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer

    This product is definitely unique. It comes what looks like a giant tube of mascara, complete with a big mascara wand to brush into your hair. It's meant to tame those little flyaway baby hairs along the hairline or on the top of your head that stick up. I tried this on the little baby hairs at my hairline that were sticking in all different directions when I had my hair pulled back. It worked in keeping the hairs down but made my hair look greasy and heavy. Didn't feel it worked any better than misting hairspray on an unused toothbrush and smoothing down baby hairs (which I have done in the past). I would avoid using it on my hair when I have it down and blown out, just because of how greasy and heavy it felt. I brushed a little on the ends of my hair on another occasion just for kicks, just to see how it would work on frizzies/split ends. It worked only moderately well and was again a bit too heavy for my hair. I've used John Frieda Frizz Ease in the past and that has worked way better for the same purpose. I wouldn't purchase this product unless baby flyaway hairs are a major issue for you. It would be great to keep in your purse and use it to touch-up your hair during the day. The scent is a plus too, it smells clean and girly. But for me, this item just isn't useful enough for me to justify buying on a regular basis.

  • Carmex Original Tube

    Carmex Original Tube

    Great inexpensive lip treatment

    Not as tingly as Blistex balm, but the effect is similar. Great for those days when your lips are wrecked from the cold and dry weather and regular chapsticks just aren't cutting it. Layer it on thick before you go to bed and wake up with plump, well moisturized lips. A must have for winters. And I love the tube because it's a lot less messy and more sanitary than the little jar that you have to dip your finger into.

  • Pantene Pro-V Midnight Expressions Daily Color Enhancing Conditioner

    Really good for dark hair. Not really sure what ingredients make this so particular for black hair, but I really did see a difference. No dyes in it apparently, but somehow enhances the richness of dark shades. Love it! And for the price?? I'm in heaven.

  • OPI Nail Lacquer

    OPI Nail Lacquer

    Vibrant colors

    Opi has the most unique, vibrant and fun colors of any nail line! It's no wonder that season after season, the most popular colors usually include one or two from Opi! I loved the Russian collection this year. Lasts days without chipping. Dulce de Leche, Lincoln Park After Dark, and Really Red are my top 3 Opi favorites, although I really consider all of them my favorites. :) Love it.

  • The Body Shop Body Butter

    The Body Shop Body Butter

    Really GREAT lotion

    The smell...oh my god, the smell. This body butter is absolutely divine! I'm obsessed with the scent and it's a really good lotion to boot. Works really well and extra dry areas like the knees and elbows. And if you believe in the claims people make about cocoa butter, it'll help with stretch marks and skin tone as well.

  • Shiseido The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge

    Another high quality cream by Shiseido...moisturizes and plumps your skin while you sleep. Best of all, it isn't highly greasy like a lot of other heavy night creams. I saw a difference in my skin in under 2 weeks. The only con is that one of the creams come in a jar (which is significantly less watery than the other one), which could be slightly unhygienic over time if you don't properly wash your hands before dipping in. I'd highly recommend this.

  • OPI Top Coat
    10.0

    OPI Top Coat

    Like armor for a manicure!

    This is a very heavy duty top coat! It's worth paying a little more at the drug store for OPI products. This really seals in your manicure really well and makes it last for days without chipping. Although the drying/setting time is rather long, it really does act like a tough armor for your nails once it is set. Don't use in the hours before you go to bed though. I've used this 4 hours before bed, and nails appeared to be 100% dry and hardened but I somehow still woke up with sheet marks on it. But the long drying time is worth the heavy dute toughness your nails will get. My manicures usually last for close to 2 weeks with this top coat (and I am extremely tough on my nails too).

    OPI Start To Finish

    Great base coat

    Great to use under nail polish but doesn't hold well on its own. I trust OPI, but this is not one of my favorite products.

  • Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment
    10.0

    Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment

    Great classic product

    I usually go for the Blistex in the blue jar, but this one is great for using on-the-go since it is in a handy applicator that is more hygienic than sticking your finger in a jar. Great for severely chapped and painful lips, when the winter cold and indoor heat gives your lips a real beating. Works really fast two...I usually see a difference within 24 hours. It does look white upon intial application, but within a couple of minutes it sinks in and leaves a light shine. I love it!!!!

  • Blistex Lip Medex

    Wonderful for severely cracked lips. When regular chapstick just doesn't cut it anymore, I use this. Slather it really thick before bed and wake up with soft, lush lips that are not longer painful or peeling. Love the tingling sensation from the menthol too. My only complaint is the same one another reviewer mentioned- you have to dip your finger in, so this is not something I keep in my purse since I can't use it on the go.
