  • Tone Daily Detox Purifying Body Wash with White Clay & Pink Jasmine,

    This is the first conventional body wash I have used in a while, I've been more into natural-type products lately but I was strapped for cash and ran out of soap! This has a nice fragrance and cleanses without drying me out, but doesn't do a whole lot to moisturize either. But I do like that it rinses off without feeling like it left anything behind. For the price, I'm pleased. I can't vouch for ingredient safety just because I haven't found that information. And the fragrance kind of lingers and this body wash is now what my bathroom smells like all the time. Otherwise, this stuff is aight.

  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

    I'll start by saying that this mascara, in and of itself, is decent. But, it's nothing that I can't get for way cheaper at a drugstore. And Tarte really hypes itself on being a more natural-based beauty company, but this mascara scores a 5 (on a certain product safety website that Total Beauty won't let me mention here) which is really mediocre. Lots of other, cheaper, just as effective mascaras score a 5 or better. Finally, I've had a couple times where this gave me raccoon eyes by the end of the day, which I know it's not waterproof, but I have other non-waterproof mascaras that don't do that. This one also tends to irritate my eyes, which isn't difficult to do since I wear hard contacts, but since this is supposedly more "natural" I was hoping it wouldn't. Overall, not impressed by this mascara, and I'm glad I got it as part of a sample pack rather than dropping $18 for it.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice Stick

    I absolutely love this lipstick. It goes on super smooth and moisturizing and gives a bit of color, without "looking" like a lipstick, which rocks because I'm really not a lipstick girl. It has a yummy sweet scent that is not overwhelming. My only gripe is that they discontinued it! And the gloss in the tube by the same name is absolutely no replacement.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss

    I bought one of these, actually I think I ended up buying two of them, after trying and LOVING the lipstick-type version of this product. Annnnd, I gave it more than a college try, and just could not get used to the consistency. Like the editor reviewer said, the consistency is like glue, it's NOT smooth or glossy when it goes on, and it doesn't moisturize or absorb in at all. My lips tend to be kind of dry, and this stuff turns into clumps on my lips and is really disgusting. I'm so mad that they dc'd the lipstick kind, because I have absolutely no complaints about that one. This, however, I pretty much have nothing but complaints.

  • Kiss My Face Hand Creme
    7.0

    Kiss My Face Hand Creme

    nice, but nothing special

    I live in Colorado where the winters will wreak havoc on your hands. I bought a mini version of this in the grapefruit-whatever kind (like in the picture), and it smells AMAZING. It also moisturizes decently for the time being, but not incredibly so, and only until you wash your hands. To me, it's no different than your dime-a-dozen body lotion in terms of moisturizing, but the scent is awesome. Not sure it would be worth the price for me in the future though, because for me, yummy fragrance isn't everything when it comes to $.

  • Avalon Organics Lavender Nourishing Shampoo

    This shampoo is not too nourishing, because it stripped everything out of my hair. I really, really wanted to love it, because I'm all about using more natural products these days. But, it pretty much thrashed my hair. And the matching conditioner did nothing to condition, because after showering and once my hair was dry, it would be like static city if it got rubbed up against anything at all, like changing my shirt. Good thing my husband wasn't around, cuz he would have asked where the light socket was that needs a bulb because I must have just accidentally stuck my finger in it. After like 2 uses, this got passed on to a friend of mine who I thought it might work for.

  • Earth Science Almond-Aloe Facial Moisturizer, Lightly Scented

    I have this in the unscented version, which there's not a page for that, so I will write it here! This is a decent moisturizer, and it's true that a little goes a long way! It takes a little while longer to make it feel like it's all rubbed in than other facial moisturizers, but once it's in, it's light and non-greasy. It's also a HUGE bottle for not a whole lot of $, and very safe in terms of ingredients! The only thing is that while it doesn't make my breakouts worse (at least I don't think), it's not doing much to prevent them either!

  • Tom's of Maine Natural Antiplaque Tartar Control & Whitening Toothpaste

    I decided to try a natural toothpaste after reading about all the scary ingredients in just about every product we all use, so I bought this one in Peppermint for the extra benefits of whitening and tarter control and all that. I thought it would be sweet to have a safer toothpaste with all the crime-fighting power of the traditional stuff I've used all my life. This is harder to get used to because it doesn't have the artificial flavoring that everything else has, and because it's natural, it doesn't keep your breath Listerine-fresh all day long. But I'm ok with that. It gets the job done, and now that I'm used to the flavor, I feel good knowing that I'm doing something better for myself. Now whenever I use a traditional toothpaste it tastes way too sweet, and fake, and scary. I might be Tom's for life.

  • Physicians Formula Eye Makeup Remover Lotion, For Normal to Dry Skin

    This is my new fave eye makeup remover. It's like steel wool for your eyes without the excruciating pain that steel wool would cause. You put some on your finger then massage it on and around your eye, then wipe clean with a cotton ball! It removes every stitch of my makeup and leaves nothing behind. It takes a little more work to take off waterproof mascara, but still works like 10 times better than anything else I've tried. I have this one mascara that bleeds really easily, and when I remove it with this, I look like Alice Cooper before I wipe it off. It's that good.

  • Schick Quattro for Women
    8.0

    Schick Quattro for Women

    my fave razor, wish it was cheaper though....

    For me, this is the perfect razor. For the first few shaves, you can just get after it without worrying about having to go really lightly or else gouge yourself, like has happened to me with using a brand new cartridge of other popular brands (ahem, *venus*...cough cough). But because of that, this blade doesn't last as long before it needs to be changed. And these cartridges are more expensive than other brands. So for me, that's a pretty big drawback. If they were a couple bucks cheaper, this would be my go-to for the rest of time.
