Almay Clear Complexion makeup
So it is not for my skin for sure. I am always excited whenever I see face makeup that says it will also help your acne at the same time. Blemishes is my frequent problem, especially around that time of the month, however, that makeup did nothing for me. I have to give Almay thumbs up for not testing on animals, thank you, so I can continue using their other products, just not this one. My skin is fair, and I always go for lighter shades, so I chose Ivory, while I was hoping it would match my skin stone, it gave me more of a yellowish coverage and made my skin look dry, and it does not blend in well at all, it literally looks like I am wearing makeup. So I guess I will keep looking for an alternative.

My first organic mascara
Well it is a So So mascara really, I was happy with it enough but I don't think I will buy it again. Things I like about it: no clumps, applies easily, it is organic and I really like the look, very "green" looking, very creative. I used this mascara for about three months before it started going dry, so I am tossing it out now, I am glad I tried it but I think I will try another brand of organic mascara because this one does not offer enough volume and length, and gets smudgy later in the day.

Great makeup just one thing...
I bought this a while ago actually, in search of better makeup for the first time, I was immediately impressed by the texture, how easy it was to apply, and instanly hid my imperfections, looks great on the skin, the only thing was that it was a bit too dark for my natural skin tone. I bought this again, and in Fair, but it is still a bit too dark, so I may have to play around with their shades, I did not test all of them so I bought the lightest shade for my fair skin, I end up putting it on my neck as well so it will match. I really wish they had lighter shades but otherwise it is one of the best liquid foundations out there without a question. Also, if you like cruelty-free products like me, Clinique is animal friendly =)

Not worth all 10 Stars
Neutrogena Naturals lip balm was one of the samples on one of the monthly Total Beauty Collection boxes. Nice to know there is no harsh chemical sulfates, parabens,petrochemicals,dyes,phthalates, but I do believe Neutrogena is not a cruelty-free brand so if that's true I will not buy it. The balm itsels is not one of my top picks for sure but it is not bad, I would still like to have more moisturizing effect, this one still is missing something for me.

No thank you, not a fan of this one. I am really not impressed with it at all, dissapointed, I like Almay liquid foundation better. When I applied this powder it looked like I am wearing A Lot of makeup on my face, and it does not blend in with my skin at all, it was a complete waste of money.

My hair is naturally curly and frizzy, and a lot of days it is dry, and feel damaged, especially the ends. I bought this once and started using it about two months ago, I have not been dissapointed with it but I can't say it's that miracle-answer for me. I really love the smell of this product, very pleasant; nice consistency cream, not too heavy not too light, a little bit goes a long way, gives my hair nice texture and feel. I have noticed some improvement when it comes to split ends, it helps, it's just not enough for me, but I wear my hair in a bun a lot, actually almost every single day, which is required for work, so my hair does not get that much rest, and I am not surprised to experience all that damage. Acorrding to the bottle you may want to use ProMend Shampoo and Conditioner at the same time, you may achieve better results.

Not too impressed
I have used this for about a month, did not impress me much at all, but it's not too bad at the same time. It is gentle enough to wash your hair with everyday, and I am one of those people who feels that I have to wash my hair everyday or it gets too oily. It is a sulfate-free moisture system, also paraben-free and with natural botanicals, which is good. According to the bottle, it is 100% vegan, which is great if it's true but I heard that L'Oreal is one of the companies that test on animals, which bothers me so I I think I will be more cautious when it comes to L'Oreal. Also, personally, for my very dry hair I need even more moisture, and this shampoo doesn't exactly deliver that.

Does what it says
Got a sample of this along with a sample of shampoo, same kind, from HSN Total Beauty Collection that I received earlier. Relatively small sample, and just like the shampoo sample, it gave me three servings, but once again, it was enough for me to know that it works for me. Awesome smell, actually I find it tasty, maybe it's the Monoi Oil, the secret ingredient, that gives that smell, not sure, but I love it, love it ! Very gentle on my hair, makes it more manageable and soft, also contains B5, which is good for your hair. I would be happy to buy this in full size, one of my favorites officially.

One of my favorites
Tried this shampoo after I received a sample from HSN Total Beauty Collection, gave me three servings of this shampoo, and it was enough for me to know that I like it. One of the great things about it is that it's Sulfate-free, that alone will make it attractive to me. It was gentle on my dry and frizzy hair, very nice smell and it was easy to wash my hair and manage it afterwords. It cleanses and detangles your hair, and I have never tried a product that contains Monoi Oil, which according to the package information, is a secret ingredient in this shampoo. I would not mind buying this shampoo, I am pretty happy with the product.

I found out about this mask on TV for the first time, and while it looked like something my skin could use due to the cost and so many things that were said about it that I thought were way too good to be true..I was simply skeptical so I did not purchase it, and recently, HSN Total Beauty Collection introduced me to this mask and I was excited to try it as a sample, was very much looking forward to see if I like it or not. It's a small tube but for a sample it's not too bad, I was able to get three servings out of it =) The first time I opened it, I noticed the smell was not bad, nothing unpleasant, and the black color, wow, that was Fun to play with ! I applied the recommended amount onto my skin evenly, left it on until completely dry and peeled it off. Peeling this mask off was so fun as well, because it wouldn't come off in one piece, but of course, that would be too easy, but the pieces came off pretty easily, I had fun just standing in front of the mirror and revealing my fresh looking skin, after I took it all off I saw a nice complexion, I really liked the way it made my skin look. There is one thing I will say that bothered me a bit when I first applied it, and I used it three times, it made my eyes teary a bit, as If I am sensitive to some ingredient, what it is I am not sure at all, it was almost like I was near fresh cut onions, as if it was a safe enough of distance to not make me burst into tears but close enough to make my eyes feel that pressure and be sensitive to it. One good thing about Boscia is that they do not test on animals according to the Peta's Caring Consumer Program, which is awesome to know because that means that I can buy their products.
