  • Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector with SPF 30

    So when I heard Revlon was coming out with a BB cream with SPF 30 I couldn't wait to try it. At first, I liked the way it looked on my skin, it gave decent coverage and blended in well. However, after a few weeks I started noticing I was having the absolute WORST breakouts of my life. It took me a while to figure it out because I couldn't believe it, I had never had a product make me breakout in my life. When I was looking over the bottle to see why this could be making me break out I saw that there was nothing saying it was non- comedogenic. My skin tends to be combination, mostly normal and oily some days, so maybe this product would work on drier skin. I don't understand why Revlon would make a product that wasn't non-comedogenic, horrible planning on their part. So if you have even the slightest of oily skin, in my opinion, stay away from this product!!!

  • Herbal Essences Smooth Collection Conditioner

    I remember using this wonderful conditioner when I was younger. My mom always bought the shampoo and conditioner, and it always made me feel so grown up using these products. So as soon as I heard that they were bringing this product back, I knew I had to go out and buy some. The rose scent is absolutely wonderful, and it is not overpowering at all. The conditioner is a bit light, so I do not know if this product will work for people with thick, coarse hair, or they might just need to use a lot more. This left my hair feeling nice & smooth, and very manageable. I'm so happy that herbal essences realized that this was such an amazing product and needed to come back!

  • Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray

    Sally Hershberger has some amazing products, but this definitely has to be one of my absolute favorites. During the summer, I love to spend time outdoors. Whether it be going to the pool, beach, park or on a hike, most of these activities involve being out in the heat and my hair gets parched, This spray has a nice smell, it is not heavy and I put it on once I get out of the shower. It leaves my hair feeling extra soft & healthy again, and also helps a bit with taming frizziness. This has especially saved my hair from all the chlorine and salty ocean water from completely destroying my hair. So if you like to be very active in the hot summer months, I really recommend this product!

  • Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    Secret Scent Expressions Clear Gel

    Put deodorant on before bed!

    I have been using Secret Gel deodarant for quite sometime now, and it is definitely one of my favorites. I have seen many complaints about it being sticky or not lasting. Well about the not lasting part, studies have shown that deodorant works most effectively if you put it on before you go to bed, since it will then absorb into your skin and thus work a lot better. And, I have also read that it does not matter if you shower in the morning, the deodorant should still work effectively. I honestly prefer gels to solids, I just do not feel that solids work as well with my skin. I have found that these deodorants to be effective, have great scents, can be a little messy (but you do not need much anyways) and even when I wake up in the morning I can still smell it, and my sweating also has cut down a lot more since starting to use it at night. All around, this deodorant has been great!

  • Simple Vital Vitamin Night Cream
    8.0

    Simple Vital Vitamin Night Cream

    Decent, but nothing special

    I decided to try this product during the winter time, since my combination skin gets much drier around that time of year. I had heard wonderful things about Simple's skin care products, so I could not wait to try it. However, I feel like this night cream did not do much for my skin. It has a nice, light smell and does feel moisturizing right when I put it on, but I did not feel that the moisturization lasted very long. So overall for me, this was just an okay product that I will most likely not purchase again, but I am still open to trying out other products form this line.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Combination to Oily Skin

    I had been using the regular version of this BB Cream for the longest time, since it was the only one that gave me the right amount of coverage and matched my skin tone. However, I did notice that it made my skin shiny after applying it, so I would just use an oil-absorbing sheet to deal with the issue. I had been hoping for so long that Garnier would come out with a bb cream for my skin type and they finally did! My skin is usually normal/oily, with dry spots mostly in the winter. This BB cream feels much lighter than its counterpart, and I feel it blends into my skin a lot more easily. My skin is left feeling soft and matte, yay for no more oily residue! Plus, this BB cream has SPF 20, so I wear this over my regular SPF moisturizer for added protection. This is definitely the best drugstore BB Cream I have ever tried!!

  • Alba Botanica AcneDote Face and Body Scrub

    Alba Botanica AcneDote Face and Body Scrub

    Best body acne treatment EVER!!!

    I have used SOO MANY body acne products over the years. Many acne body washes seemed to work for a little bit, but never gave me results that I wanted. Plus, I had to use them everyday if I wanted to see any improvement in my skin, which would also dry my skin out. I really hoped that I wouldn't have to turn to some expensive acne body wash from Proactiv or some other brand. One day I was just walking through the beauty aisles of Target and saw this, and I knew I had to pick it up, I felt it was my last hope before having to buy some overpriced product! And man, does this work! The scrub has 100% Vegetarian ingredients, no sulfates, parabens, no artificial fragrance, or animal testing. The Salicylic Acid is naturally derived from Willow Bark and has ground walnut shells in the scrub (so maybe if you have a nut allergy want to avoid.) The scrub is brown, so that may turn people off but honestly it works great so I don't mind, and it has a soft minty smell. The first time I used it, I immediately saw results, and because this is a scrub, I do not use it everyday (and thankfully I don't have too!) This scrub costs about $9.99, and should last for about 2-3 months, if you do not use it everyday. Also worked well on my face when I had some bad acne. I just recommend the whole Alba AcneDote line for all your acne problems (:

  • Carmex Healing Cream
    10.0

    Carmex Healing Cream

    Awesome Cream!

    I just got a tin of the healing cream for about $2 at Walgreens, and I have to say, its really great! I have never really cared for the Carmex lip balm but the smell has always been nice and I needed something for the weather that is constantly changing here in Texas. Its currently Spring, and Texas weather is bipolar; some days are (still) cold and then the next its crazy hot, so that can cause havoc to anyones skin! I saw this and thought I'd give it a try and I am very happy with my purchase! Made my skin instantly smooth, dried fast and not greasy at all. What is great about this cream is that the scent is light and basically unisex, so my boyfriend doesn't mind actually using this for when his hands get rough. All around, awesome product!

  • Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream
    10.0

    Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

    Really helps with eczema!!

    My skin is weird; I have keratosis pilaris and occasionally I'll have eczema break outs, usually only quite mild but sometimes I will have a moderate eczema break out, especially when it is allergy season. I use hydrocortisone to deal with the eczema, but sometimes if the break outs are all over my arms, rubbing hydrocortisone all overs just leaves my skin feeling greasy and not moisturized at all. And when I have these eczema break outs, I cannot use my usual lotion (Amlactin) because that will irritate my skin more. But finally, I found a cream that not only helps my eczema, it MOISTURIZES too!! This has been a savior for my skin, especially since it does not contain any steroids I can reapply it as much as I like throughout the day. It may leave skin feeling a little sticky at first, but it is well worth it to have relief from annoying eczema! The bottle is also a nice size, so since I only get eczema breakouts occasionally, it lasts quite awhile.

  • Noxzema Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Pads

    I use these little pads everyday when I come home from school. It takes of my BB Cream and helps with my blemishes as well and it does not dry my skin out, (though I could see that happening to people who already suffer from dry skin.) And I only use this product once a day, for I wash my face at night, and these anti-blemish pads are great when you have zits that you want gone ASAP. The smell is quite strong, however since it leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and helps reduce my blemishes, it is well worth it! Its a great deal and definitely one of the better drugstore acne products out there!
