    Johnson's Head-to-Toe Baby Wash

    Not for all children...

    I used this all the time on my first child and it was great, It would leave him clean and smelling so nice. Then I had my second son, and I used this on him as well. At around 9-10 months, He was getting real dry and itchy skin and he would scratch it so much that he would cut himself! I would constantly apply lotion but I decided to ask his doctor about it. Right away she asked me what shampoo I used for him and I told her Johnson and Johnson. And what she said surprised me. She said that this shampoo can actually be drying for baby's skin. Maybe this is not true for all babies, as I didn't have this problem with my first son but my youngest does have sensitive skin. So I immediately bought a different baby body wash, and with in a week his dry skin was gone and he stopped scratching! So I mean it is a really good body wash but I guess not for some babies with sensitive skin. So unfortunately I had to stop buying this and the shampoo as well.

  • Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    I prefer the solids...

    This was the first gel deodorant I tried and it was just ok for me. It didn't last very long, and its not like I sweat so much either, but I had to apply a lot. It does smell nice but I'm just not a fan of gel deodorants after this. I don't like the wetness of it when I apply it and I have to wait with my arms up for a bit to let it dry which annoys me. I like the dry feeling from the moment I put it on and I'm ready to go. I'll stick to the solids, they are nice and dry and last longer for me.

  • Palmers Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Cream for Stretch Marks

    I have a slightly different one with a pump, and it says lotion instead of cream but I couldn't find that one so I guess they may be the same in different packaging. Anyway I used this everyday during and after both of my pregnancies and the only place I ended up getting some small stretch marks was around my belly button piercing. They are small, and were a little purple. I continued to apply this post partum and the stretch marks didn't go away but they faded almost matching my skin color, and are barely noticeable unless you look closely. So this didn't completely prevent me from getting some small stretch marks, But since the only place I got stretch marks was around the belly piercing, maybe the actual piercing has something to do with that. I'm not sure but over all its very good, it doesn't stop ALL stretch marks from appearing but most.. and it does a good job of fading them.

  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Original

    Vaseline Lip Therapy Original

    I use this for my sons..

    Last winter my 2 and 3 year old boys were getting really chapped lips to the point where they cracked and bled. I have fruity lip balms that moisturize but one time I put it on them temporarily until I got something for them, but they liked the smell and fruity taste and would lick their lips and take it all off haha.. I needed something without scent or taste to avoid them eating it! So I went out and found this. This worked really well and healed their chapped lips, I would put it on once in the morning and for the rest of the day their lips seemed soft and moisturized. And this didn't seem to just temporarily relieve it, it actually healed their lips and after putting this on them everyday for about a week, I noticed their lips weren't so chapped anymore and I didn't have to put it on them so much. The only thing I'm not too crazy about is having to stick my finger in there and then having to wipe my finger off afterwards. So if they made this into a stick it would be perfect! Plus its so tiny and convenient to keep it in my purse and it lasts long. I would recommend this for anyone who likes a simple moisturizer for lips, for kids, Or even for men as my husband also likes this.

  • Goody ColourCollection Large Claw Clips-Black

    These do an ok job of holding my hair, but not for a whole day. I usually have to re-do my hair at least once during the day. And I find that the teeth easily break and I had to go buy some different ones.

    Goody Ouchless Elastics

    I always get goody!

    I love these! I get them at Walmart, they are inexpensive and really good! They keep my hair up all day, and they really are ouchless! They last long too I have never had any of these loose the elasticity or break. The only reason I ever need to buy more is because I lose them!

  • CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner

    I was running out of eyeliner one day and I needed a new one. I wanted to try something different so I tried this one. Although the color is really intense and it applied smoothly, it smudged so much throughout the day! and I don't even have really oily skin or anything. That's a deal breaker for me because I really don't like having to check myself in the mirror constantly and worrying about it smudging. Needless to say I will not be repurchasing.

  • Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Self-Adhesive Eyelashes

    I'm not really an expert on applying false eye lashes because I don't really use them all that much. I think the only times I have worn them was for Halloween and maybe a couple special occasions. The couple times I have used them I ended up throwing them away when I was done because I didn't like them at all. I didn't have a good impression on false lashes because to me they are a pain to apply and feel uncomfortable. But I bought these for Halloween one time, and they were the first Revlon ones that I got. It took me a little time to get them on, but that's probably because I'm inexperienced, but these don't come with a messy glue, they come with self adhesive strips that make it easier to apply. Also this comes with an applicator to help get them on close to the lash line and secure them in place. Once I got them on they looked really nice and lasted all night. They were a little difficult to pull off though because the adhesive strips are pretty sticky So I had to do it really slowly and gently, and I had to wash off my eyes to get the excess off. And unlike the other false lashes I have tried, I didn't throw these away because they didn't bother me at all and they come with two extra adhesive strips. So these changed my opinion on false lashes a bit because they were much easier to apply and more comfortable then other ones I have used and I get to save them for next time :)

  • Colgate 360 Total Advanced Toothbrush

    I really like this tooth brush. It does a great job cleaning my teeth, and its not too rough on my gums. It gets all my teeth and even in between, and the tongue cleanser on the back is really great to leave the tongue clean. I love the colors and design too, they really catch your eye.
