    Revlon Smoothing Primer

    Not worth the effort

    I think this is for people with dry skin. I have an oily t-zone and using this is no different than moisturizing and putting on make up. Using this product seems to make my make up "slide" sooner rather than later. Which is troublesome especially I have thin brows that need to stay in place. The sad part is of all the primers I have tried plain old Milk of Magnesia works best for my skin. 1 squirt of my regular moisturizer and 2 drops of MoM -- 16-18 hours of flawlessness for a fraction of the cost of this stuff.

    Giovanni 50/50 Balanced Shampoo

    Would only use to clarify

    Got my hair squeaky clean which means it was stripped. I will only use once a month when I need that kind of clean. Otherwise far too harsh for my already dry hair type.

  • Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray

    The shape of the bottle makes this product difficult to use. I have put the product in a better bottle. When I have used the product I noticed that my hair felt lighter and smoother.

  • Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner

    I bought the whole system and really liked to conditioner. The smell is great and it works well as a pre-shampoo conditioner as well as a post-shampoo conditioner. I'd score it higher but wish I could find it in the store.

  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo

    I love the smell and the fact that my hair is not completely stripped of its natural oils after washing. Would use it more often if not so hard to find.

  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner

    Love the light smell and works equally well as a pre-shampoo conditioner as well as a post shampoo conditioner. I wish I didn't have to hunt for it in stores.

  • Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deep Moisture Conditioner

    I liked this conditioner, but the performance was not WOW. I remember the smell more than I remember its performance.

  • Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30-Day Smoothing Treatment

    First off I am a Black woman with natural type 4a/b hair that's fine, cottony and shoulder length. This time (#2) when I did the BKT I waited until my hair had stopped dripping but was still very wet when I sectioned my hair into about 20 two-inch sections, which I two-strand twisted before adding the treatment. Twisting my hair helped maintain some moisture while allowing it to dry. When I completed the last twist I went back to the first twist and added the treatment, never using more than the most that could fit on the tip of my index finger, less if the section was thinner. This technique really helped with an even appropriate level of saturation because while twisting the hair I squeezed out all excess product if there was any and used it on the next section. My hair as a result felt less coated and the brown tinge was lessened. This was done with gloves on, so it’s a great check on over saturation, since it is impossible to tell by just touching the hair if there is too much product. I sat with the treatment on my hair for an additional 30 minutes after I finished my last twist. ( I ate lunch my intention was 15) Starting again with the first twist I began blow-drying my hair on medium (I removed the gloves). My hair felt thicker, about the consistency and texture of nearly dry hair with conditioner left on it. I used more tension on my hair than I had the first time as a result I got my hair straighter. I continued to blow dry my hair working only on the section that had been untwisted and pulling away the sections that had not been untwisted and those that had already been blow-dried. Next I sectioned my hair from front to back and from ear to ear. I then started pressing my hair straight (between 18 and 20 on my gold n hot). The results were PHENOMINAL I got the silky press I had always wanted (I do not go to the salon). My hair does not feel coated as it did before and there is only a very slight brown tinge on my few and far between grays. I will say when I did my hair the first time it was summer and it is now winter and very dry where I live which I am sure is playing a role in my hair remaining straight. It is now day two, and my hair is just as straight as it was yesterday. I wrapped my hair up last night and my hair is still soft silky and straight with some body from the over-night wrap. It looks great. I would definitely do this treatment again. I am only sorry that I have to wash out the keratin tomorrow and start the straightening process again.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup
    10.0

    L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup

    Foundation + Concealer + Powder = Great skin

    I love this foundation. I had avoided liquid foundation for years because my skin is oily, especially in the t-zone. I also had problems with looking orange (and I'm a black girl!). This is the only foundation that makes me look as if I am not wearing make up at all, as if I just have great skin. I can't tell you all how many complements I get on my "great skin" when I wear this make-up ( foundation + concealer + powder). The results just aren't as good when I wear one or two of the trifecta. I am an N8 and I hope they never stop making this.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    I was a little skeptical when I saw the shade that was assigned (N8) and the matching concealer is for N 6-7-8. I thought it was too light. It's the first concealer I have committed to using on a regular basis. It sort of stings when I put it on, but after 15 seconds it stops. I generally wear it under my eyes and when applied elsewhere there is no sting. Either way, it is not enough of a problem to get me to stop using the product. I also use the liquid foundation which I apply first then finish with the powder. Everything blends to create the perfect finish for my face. I have never had any issue with obvious make-up lines, or having my make up look mask-like. But for the stinging I would have given a 10.
