  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme

    One reason I love this produce is because it's diverse. I use it with multiple styles. I have naturally wavy hair, and this creme is great for making my waves look more defined and pretty. I use it one wet or dry waves, and they never turn out crunchy. When I blow dry and flat iron my hair straight, I love using this product to finish off my style. I use a small amount and run my hands through my hair, root to ends, and it gives me a polished look. Plus, it doesn't weight my hair down or look oily -- something that's always a concern for my super thick/long hair. And finally, this isn't an expensive product, especially for the results I get!

  • Almay Oil Free Liquid Makeup Remover

    Almay Oil Free Liquid Makeup Remover

    Doesn't remove waterproof mascara

    I like that this makeup remover doesn't irritate or sting my eyes. It also doesn't leave any residue, and it leaves my skin feeling clean. However, it doesn't remove my waterproof mascara very well. I find that I have to keep rubbing and rubbing, and still, there's mascara left on my eyelashes. I wind up having to use another product to clean off the waterproof mascara that the Almay liquid leaves behind.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
    8.0

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    Good, but a little greasy

    This is the eye makeup remover that I most often use. I've had issues with makeup removers leaving behind waterproof mascara, but this easily cleans it off. The only downside is that it leaves a greasy residue on my skin. But overall, that's not a deal-breaker for me.

  • Pantene Pro-V Color Preserve Shine Shampoo

    I try to stay away from creamy shampoos because I feel like they don't clean my hair very well. And sure enough, this leaves oily residue in my hair, and I find that I have to wash it more frequently. I don't use a lot of products, so I don't have lots of product buildup. But my hair tends to get oily, especially at the roots. This shampoo just doesn't leave my hair clean. It conditions well, but doesn't clean well. As far as preserving color, I didn't notice anything special about this shampoo either. However, I dye my hair red (the hardest color to preserve), so people who use different color dyes may have different results.

  • TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

    I tried this dry shampoo mainly because it was a cheap alternative to other brands. But the results were horrible! It didn't absorb oil from my hair at all, and after using this, my hair was an oily, dull, matted mess. I couldn't even brush it out, and the product even covered my brush in gunk. I wound up immediately having to wash this out of my hair. (And washing my hair was what I was hoping to avoid in the first place!)

  • Smashbox Layer Lash Primer
    9.0

    Smashbox Layer Lash Primer

    Separates and Multiplies

    My lashes are about medium in terms of length and volume. I love for my eyelashes to look full and voluminous, but I can't get that look with mascara alone. So I tried this lash primer hoping it would help, and I love it! The brush does a great job of lengthening and multiplying my lashes, so no matter what mascara I use, they always look nice and full. The brush also separates my lashes really well, which means I don't have to worry about clumping when I apply mascara over the primer. The primer isn't hard to cover at all; I just make sure I give each lash a good swipe. I also find that I don't need as many coats of mascara. The only downside is that it's a little pricey (for me, at least). But since it gives me such great results, I'll absolutely buy it again.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Radiance Cream SPF 15

    I generally trust Neutrogena products, so when I picked this out, I expected a lot more than I got. This left my face feeling oily and gross. I don't feel like it absorbed into my skin very well, and I constantly felt like I needed to wash my face. I tend to have combination/oily skin, so this moisturizer may be different for someone with very dry skin. But even with my skin type, I've never experienced a moisturizer that left my face feeling so oily!

  • Conair Infiniti Pro Spin Air Rotating Styler

    I'm a low-maintenance type of person, so I don't like to spend much time on my hair. But I still want it to look good! I love this tool because it gives me that sleek, round brushed look that I get at the salon. I had tried using round brushes before, and I hated it! The results may look nice, but it was a full upper-body workout trying to use the brush in my thick hair. And it took friggin' forever! But using this tool gives my hair exactly what I want, a sleek look with volume. I'm not exactly talented or skilled when it comes to beauty products and tools, but this brush is super easy and fast to use. I just turn it on and pull the rotating brush through my hair, and the end results look like I have way more talent than I actually do. My hair is voluminous with lots of bounce and movement, and the texture is soft and sleek with no frizzy or frayed ends at all. The only downside is that sometimes, stray pieces of hair get caught in the edges of the rotating brush, and I have to stop and untangle them. But really, it's just a minor issue. I'd definitely recommend this product!

  • Wet n Wild Mega Last Retractable Eyeliner

    I bought this eyeliner in charcoal and liked the color. However, the product isn't creamy at all and doesn't apply easily. I had to hold my eyelid taught and press the pencil into my skin pretty hard to get any product on my eye. I kept having to draw over and over my skin to get any product to transfer, and it never really worked. Also, it was pretty uncomfortable having to put that much pressure on my skin from the pencil. Don't waste you time!
