  • Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening System

    I am so glad I found this product! My teeth have always been so important to me. I had Zoom, I bought in-office dental whitening kits, I had a mold custom made for my teeth, I have used Crest Whitening strips, whitening toothpastes, whitening mouthwash.... The list goes on and on! I can't believe all of the money that I wasted when this superior product is only $5.99; $3.99 if you only need the gel! The kit comes with an ultra comfy gel mouth guard and it was all so easy to use. My teeth are naturally white, but I wanted to bring them up a few shades and do it on the budget. This is definitely the product! I noticed an immediate difference on day 1. The instructions say 5 minutes, or 15-20 if you want a deeper level of whitening. I did 20 minutes twice in the first day; I couldn't believe the difference. It has always bothered me that Crest Whitestrips are so, so expensive and they are such a disappointment. This product has a 100% money back guarantee, for any reason. The customer service number was right on the box and it made me feel really confident in buying this product, that the company is willing to stand behind it. It was so easy to use, inexpensive, and really good results; I like the fact that the gel surrounds the tooth, rather than just a "strip" of whitening gel. I would highly recommend and will be repurchasing this in the future.

  • Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum Fragrance Free

    I have tried serums before, and to be honest, wasn't all that convinced that they were a "must have" for my facial routine, or anyone else either. I went from skeptic to a big time believer! I tried a serum by Boots that I did not see even a bit of difference, and this was after completing the entire glass pump. I also tried the Walmart generic version of the Olay Regenerist Serum; nothing, no difference. I wasn't sure I wanted to try anymore; they can be a little pricey, especially if they don't work. However, I came across an article with the "best" serums in it. Olay was listed as the "best buy." Let's be honest, sometimes these magazine articles are driven by advertising and marketing, and not accurate. (Like when I read an article, then on the next page is the product they are "recommending!") I just decided to give it a shot and I am glad I did! The serum has a very nice texture, not too oily as some serums are. (I have oily/combination skin in the Summer and combination/dry in the winter.) The smell was a bit strong for me; it is a very artificial, perfumey smell, but nothing that deterred me from continuing to use this product. And the best part? I noticed results in less than a week! My skin, in particular my cheeks, looked more even toned and glowing, and this is a girl that also uses 15% glycolic acid and retin-a. Wow. This serum can do what glycolic can't, in a shorter amount of time? This is a miracle serum! They need to change the name. :)

  • L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference

    I have always gotten my hair colored in a salon. My roots were showing and I knew I needed to make an appointment, but I just decided I needed a complete change! I picked up two packages of the 5G Medium Golden Brown. All I could think was, please don't turn my hair black! The color turned out very nice. It was a bit darker than the box, and considerably darker than the swatch on their website. However, I really like it. It matches my eyes and color tone very well. My hair is really soft and shiny, and it was soooo easy to apply. I was really nervous and was worried the color would be uneven and it wasn't. One trick I found online was the spray your ends with water before applying the color to your head. The ends are always naturally dryer (mine in particular!) and this prevents too much color depositing on the ends. I am not sure of the fading, but if I have any issues, I will be coming back to update this review. As of now, I am perfectly happy with this color. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that the Loreal colors tend to be a bit more expensive than other brands, but you can always catch them on sale and/or with a coupon. Looks just as good as any salon color I have had!

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes Pink Grapefruit

    I recently picked these up at my local Target. I use a gel cleanser but sometimes it is late at night and I an too tired to care! Leaving makeup on at night is a big no no that I have been guilty of many times before. I can't say how good this product may be for daily use, but for those late nights, it does the job. I like the texture of the cloth, and even though I don't have acne, I liked that it has salicylic acid; most towelettes cause my skin to become congested and these shouldn't do that. The smell is not as nice as I thought it would be; sort of smelled like grapefruit soda. I also thought they were a little pricey. All in all, not bad.

  • Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Body Cream Twisted Peppermint

    Well, in six more months. ;) But with this lotion, it is almost like it is here. I always get excited towards the holidays because I do almost always get one or two scented holiday creams. Last year I bought Twisted Peppermint and Vanilla Bean. Yum yum yum! The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because of the price point. It is a great product! It truly smells like real Peppermint with a hint of vanilla; it is rich, creamy and can soften even the driest skins.

  • Bath & Body Works White Barn Candle Co. Wallflowers Home Fragrance Bulbs

    I love the IDEA of this product, and I used to stock up for almost the entire year at a time! But I started to notice that the amount of fragrance was not consistent. I always use different fragrances, so I don't buy the "getting used to it" thing. Sometimes I would put a bulb in and it would smell divine and was very strong, other times, absolutely nothing. I tried changing the outlets, exchanged the holders for new ones, changed out the bulbs. I couldn't figure out what it was. I purchased a few of these for a male friend of mine, and we were sitting in his living room just two feet away from the wallflower and could not smell it at all. This was day one that he put it in and he had never had these before. I ended up switching to Glade; sometimes they are hit and miss, too, but at least I can get them cheaper with sales and coupons! The BBW version has a ton of different fragrances to choose from but another thing I didn't like about it is that their is no dial to change the amount of fragrance that is released.

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Soap

    I am not sure what it is about the moisturizing soap, but I definitely prefer the gel with beads or the foaming version. The texture of the moisturizing and the appearance is not appealing to me. If it is a really good deal or on closeout, I might pick it up, but it isn't my favorite. The soap feels moisturizing, but I didn't really notice any moisturizing after I rinsed.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Body Splash

    This is okay, but not for me. At first spritz, there is an overwhelming scent of alcohol. After this wears off an hour later, the light fragrance finally comes through. I would much prefer a good perfume or nice scented lotion to this. It doesn't last long and in my opinion, is a cheap product and not in a good way! This might be good for a girl in middle school or high school, but for me, it just isn't my thing.

  • Bath & Body Works White Barn Candle Co. Concentrated Home Fragrance Spray

    This is absolutely the best home fragrance spray I have ever found, and trust me, I have tried a lot! From big box brands that never lasted, to Yankee Candle among others. These run around $5 and are sometimes on sale, or you can use a coupon. But to be honest, this is a must have, even if it isn't on sale. One can lasts me about 3-4 months. WOW. Plus, the fragrance smells true to the label and lasts for hours; all you need is one quick spray to scent a small to medium sized room. I just love these. :)

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Shower Gel

    I think one of the things that BBW has going for them is the variety of scents; you just can't get all of these scents, and as true to the label as they are, at your local Target. I think they lather well, have a nice fragrance, and are a good gift option! For me personally, the price point is high so I don't normally purchase these. I usually get them as gifts from others. Even though Victoria's Secret and BBW are now owned by the same company, I find that the VS products appeal more to me than BBW.
