    Vaseline Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3

    not impressed...and I'm also more broke now.

    I guess I'm a sucker for fancy advertising...Vaseline bought out a whole TV channel to advertise this brand new breakthrough lotion, so I figured I'd try it out. I bought it in the Mineral-whatever scent, and I found the fragrance to be pretty overwhelming. It also claims to moisturize through several layers of skin, which I think it does, but it also sits on top of my skin and make my clothes stick to me, which drives me crazy. I guess it keeps me moisturized for 24 hours or so, which is good, but I found it to be a little much. I don't think the quality or moisturizing ability is anything special, especially for the pretty penny you shell out for this stuff. I guess they have to charge more so they could pay for their ridiculous cirque-de-soleil-ish advertising campaign, which I admit I was suckered into...oh well, I'm just glad I bought the smaller bottle instead of the bigger one.

  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Extra Hold Hairspray

    This hairspray does an awesome job of adding some volume and texture to my hair without weighing it down. Sometimes I use it with the mousse of the same kind, but lots of times I just use this and do an all-over as I toss my hair around. It looks kind of silly. This doesn't have an amazing hold factor, but it keeps my hair texturized all day and doesn't turn greasy and gross.

  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Hair Mousse

    I have really fine, pretty straight hair that's really easily weighed down, and while not perfect, this mousse is the best I've tried. It does add volume to my hair and keeps it there for a long time, just as long as I don't use too much. The hold factor isn't spectacular, but if I finish with the matching hairspray I'm all good for almost the whole day :)

  • Frizz-Ease Curl Around Style-Starting Daily Conditioner

    I don't know how this conditioner does it! It gives some extra texture to my hair which is otherwise pretty straight, and I find it really good to use when I have shorter more piece-y hairstyles. It conditions well without weighing my hair down, and I really dig it. :)

  • Frizz-Ease Curl Around Style-Starting Daily Shampoo

    This shampoo does a good job of getting my hair clean, and it smells good too. I love this paired with the matching conditioner, because they really do bring out the texture in my otherwise pretty straight hair. I like to use it when I have really short hairstyles because I get a pretty cool result :) I find it a little expensive for the amount you get, but otherwise a good product.

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Light Reflecting Moisturizing Conditioner

    I tried this conditioner and the matching moisturizing shampoo one winter because I love the versions of these products for daily use, but in teh winter I need a little something extra to keep my hair from getting static-y. This conditioner made the color rad just like the other products do, but it did NOTHING in terms of adding extra moisture to my hair. I couldn't tell a difference at all. So I guess I don't get to use these products in the wintertime. :(

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Daily Shampoo with Light Enhancers

    I love to use this shampoo with the matching conditioner...it really brings out the dark brown shades in my hair. I was looking through some pictures a few years ago and thought "wow, my hair color rocks" and then realized that's when I was using this shampoo and conditioner. My gripe is that it's a little pricey for me, so I will only use it when I have pretty short hairstyles. Good product though, and wonderful smell :)

  • Calgon Ahh Spa! Asia Creamy Moisturizing Oil with Sesame Seed Oil

    I bought this on clearance somewhere a while back, and I'm pretty sure it's discontinued now. I really like it though, the scent is awesome, it smells like something yummy and Oriental and it moisturizes really well without being greasy. Now that I've seen it on this site I want to go home and use it. Pretty good stuff.

  • Noxzema Clean Blemish Control Foaming Wash

    I used this cleanser several years ago, and I really liked it. I liked the foam, and it made my face so tingly clean and smells lemony fresh! The foam doesn't lather a whole bunch, but it's probably healthier for your face that way and won't dry it out too bad. Good cleanser, not sure if they still make it though.

  • Noxzema Original Cleansing Cream Pump

    Noxzema Original Cleansing Cream Pump

    great wash...just be careful where you put it!

    I used this back in high school and again when I was pregnant since I was trying to stay away from any serious acne-fighting ingredients. It did an amazing job of keeping my skin clear as it did in the past, and I love love love anything that smells minty like this does. My only gripe about the pump is that although it's super convenient, I kept it in the shower, apparently in a spot where water kept dripping on it, and I think a bunch of water must have gotten in through the top of the pump, because I went to use it one day and it came out like white-ish colored water! Other than that, awesome product.
