    Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs

    Good Scent, Bad Color, Less Shaving

    This product is tricky to review because what it lacks in color (color is lackluster and comes off easily) it makes up for in a tolerable scent and truly less shaving. I noticed my hair was barely there four days after shaving and applying. However, I'm thinking whatever is in it that stunts hair growth, may affect color. It's just not a glowing tan and its difficult to cover rough patches like feet and elbows with it without looking WAY to dark. I would buy this again if the color aspect improved but as it is now, not worth it.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    The Color is Nice, But Good Lord that Smell

    I know all self tanners come with an aroma that most find uninviting but Jergen's natural glow line has an unusually repulsive smell that lingers all day, even after showering. The color is nice though. If you exfoliate and shave and apply evenly it'll look like a subtle tan. The smell really kills it for me though. Years after using it, I sat by someone in school who used it and reaked. I'd describe the smell as a musky, metallic sweat scent. There are better Self-Tanners with tolerable scents out there.

  • L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer
    1.0

    L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer

    Streaky, Unnatural color, Unappealing Smell

    The first and only time I tried this I was expecting decent results, the Loreal Sublime glow is phenomenal and I bought this thinking it would be a darker version of that. First, the smell is a metallic form of self-tanner's usual stink, not attractive. The color itself is coppery and looks really unnatural, like no tan on earth. The formula is terrible too. I shaved, exfoliated, and lighty moisterized before applying onto my legs and thought I applied evenly only to have a dark copper stripe running down my shin. I immediatly scrubbed it all off with a wiry loofah. Never buying this product again, I can't imagine a scenario where this would be a good buy.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Eye Roller

    I recently needed an undereye concealer and thought that since garnier's BB creams have impressed me as of late I'd try this and possibly find success in disguising and maybe treating my dark circles. I liek the applicator as it keeps you from putting to much on but the product itself isn't anything to write home about. It has zero staying power (it is worn away by the end of hour one). Additionally, it offers minimal coverage, I still have visible dark cirlces and it doesnt even cover a light freckle I have underneath one eye that usually, concealers cover no problem. As for treatment of dark circles, forget it. Just as bad as the day I bought this stuff. I will not be buying this again.

  • Renpure Tropical Australian Wind & Water Beach Spray

    Renpure Tropical Australian Wind & Water Beach Spray

    Love it! Better than Bumble and Bumble

    I was actually given this product for free when purchasing Renpure's shampoo and conditioner and was not expecting much since I've found most "Beach" or "Surf" sprays to be nothing more than salt water. One morning after showering I sprayed this on my combed, damp hair and let it dry naturally. Maybe an hour later, my hair had those crisp defined waves similar Jennifer Aniston's waves. I had to straighten the top before going out to get a more polished look but the waves were beautiful and didn't frizz as the day progressed. I'm truly impressed by this product and will buy another when I run out. The bottle is pretty big though and you do not need to se much to get the desired result so I do not foresee running out for some time. It's also much cheaper than other products making the same claim at a higher cost (bumble and bumble).

  • EcoTools Bamboo Powder Brush

    I'm suprised to see so many positive reactions to this brush. I found it to be only average in terms of picking up powder and in application. The bristles are soft and they certainly feel like good quality but I found that actual application pales in comparison to a sephora brand brush or even cvs' line Beauty Essentials. I did begin using this for liquid foundation application and that seemed to work much more efficiently, the drawback to that though is they are incredibly difficult to clean, Overall, I would not suggest buying this product.

    Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

    Not Bad But...

    While the bottle is stunning and the shade looks luminous within it, the product itself is alright. Most of the shades I've tried are very sheer and do not last long. The color is kind of underwhelming and frankly for the price, I'd suggest going with another gloss. I want to like this because the bottle is just so cool but It is really not worth the money.

  • Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator

    I used this for one summer hoping to fade the scars from years of acne and essentially nothing about my skin changed. It goes one shiny and makes your skin look as though its glowing for about ten minutes until it fades and your skin tone is exactly the same as it was $40 ago.

  • Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

    I've tried many dried shampoos and loathed most of them. Tresemme's one actually made my hair look as though I poured canola oil onto it... very counterproductive. Not Your Mother's dry shampoo though is insanely good at giving your blowout an extra day (or two). It comes out white so you have to rub it in but it doesn't give you that powdery look you'd get with using baby powder. My one issue with it is that it makes hair a bit stiff, like the texture of hairsprayed hair, so I suggest styling before spraying this.

  • Neutrogena Complete Acne Therapy System

    Neutrogena Complete Acne Therapy System

    The Only Thing That Worked for My Acne

    I struggled with acne for four years trying every product and every 'system' that supposedly left you blemish free to no avail until I finally tried this one. In one month, I wnet from having painful cystic acne all over my chin all the time to having none, As in zero. I religiously washed my face with the cleaser morning and night and used the acne fighting cream after each cleansing. I do not use the sunscreen becuase my makeup has spf already and with oily skin and I figure the less product on my face the better. I've tried proactive, murad, acnefree; you name it, I've tried it and this was the only thing that had a major impact.
