Here are all my reviews:
  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

    I realy like the scents that come in this soap but it isn't a true anti-bac soap. I used to work at BBW and customer's really liked the fact that it made them "feel" clean even if it was a bit of false advertising. But it smells good and when I get bored, I know there are lots of scents to choose from!

  • Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Home Fragrance Oil

    I am a fragrance junkie, candles specifically. However, I do purchase scented oils and these by far are the "truest" to the actual scent mentioned in the name. Some fragrance oils smell off and not anything like you might expect; these are not one of those. I usually stock up around the holidays, at the semi-annual sales, BBW outlets, or when I have a coupon. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because of the price point; I would like to see the price come down a little bit, but they are still cheaper than candles. The scent is true, intense, and as one reviewer stated, these are safer around children than a candle would be. If you love scented oils, this is "the one."

  • Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

    I absolutely love the foaming soap from Bath and Body Works. The smells are insanely good, it cleanses well and foams nicely. However, the prices at BBW are getting higher and higher. I remember when the Body Cream was $10.00. I think it is $12.50 now, but it is always on "sale" which makes people feel like they are getting a deal. That always bothers me. I usually buy these at the BBW outlets where I can get them for around $2 or $2.50 a piece, which I think is much more reasonable. The other issue I have with this item is that they call it "anti-bacterial." There really isn't enough Triclosan in it to be considered a true anti-bac soap. Just take a look at the back of a Dial bottle. I sort of feel like they use a lot of marketing gimmicks which makes me lose faith in their brand. However, all and all, it is a good soap and I love them and I know most women do, too. :)

  • Sally Hansen Creme Hair Remover Kit For Face, Upper Lip & Chin

    It has been years since I have used this product, and now I can remember why! As far as cream hair remover goes, it isn't the best. On the plus side, the odor is not as strong as some other products. On the negative side, the product is runny and those of us who use cream hair removal products, you know one of the keys is to apply a thick layer of cream. It makes it difficult when the product is so thin. The lotion that comes with it tends to irritate my skin. I ended up using it as hand lotion instead. I usually put Vaseline on the area to moisturize, because my skin is made more sensitive after the process. I normally use the Nair facial hair remover, but I went into my local Target and they didn't have the normal one I buy; instead they had Nair Brazilian Clay facial cream. It was about .5 oz for around $5!! I don't have a lot of hair at all. In fact, I have had most of it lasered off, but I like applying my makeup to a "clean slate." It did remove the hair, but if you have thick or coarse hair I don't think it would be effective.

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

    This is a good waterproof mascara, but not the best. What I liked about it was that it did not dry out my lashes and when I removed it with my make-up remover, there were almost no lashes lost! That was impressive; especially for waterproof. It is also a really good lengthening mascara and almost NO clumps, and no flaking. However, I didn't find it quite waterproof enough. I really like Maybelline mascaras and have been stuck on Colossal Volume. With summer coming and the humidity, I decided to switch to a waterproof version and the reviews on this one are pretty good. The first day I had it on I had a small emotional meltdown after a bad day at work! They weren't huge tears, and I wasn't sobbing, but I did have the sniffles and a few tears. When I looked in the mirror, there was black mascara debris under my eyes. I was so surprised! I have worn it since then and it seems to work well for the day to day things, but I wouldn't try it in water or at a wedding or funeral. It's not bad, I do like it, but wish it truly was "waterproof."

  • Nizoral A-D Shampoo
    10.0

    Nizoral A-D Shampoo

    Tried and True!

    I am so surprised not to see any reviews on this shampoo! I have been suffering with dandruff and scalp dermatitis since I was a teenager, about 18 years or so. Over the years, I have tried T-Gel, Head & Shoulders, Selsun Blue, Aveda Scalp Remedy, among many others. I always come back to Nizoral. I tend to get "breakouts" or "flares" for a time period, then it goes away. But what really keeps it away is when I am using my Nizoral. It is a bit pricey, about $10-$15 a bottle, depending on the size, but if it works, it works! Nizoral also has a 2% formula that is prescription only. I haven't tried it, but with insurance it may be even cheaper than the over the counter version. It has a nice lather, non-offensive smell, and you don't have to let it sit on your head for any length of time. Right or wrong, I love lather in a shampoo and always wash my hair twice before conditioning. I usually use the Nizoral, then my Joico shampoo and Joico conditioner. It works out perfectly and keeps my scalp comfortable and balanced. I would definitely recommend!

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    I am loving this mascara; much better than CG's LashBlast. It's all in the brush. The only complaint I have is that by the end of the day, I sometimes have a few flakes. It kind of goes with the territory though with a mascara that is going to really pump up the volume, and this one definitely delivers. As far as drugstore mascaras go, I really like Maybelline.

  • Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Who doesn't have this??? A must!

    This product is a must for any beauty junkie, especially those on a budget! This product is so versatile. I have used it on my lips (especially at night), under my eyes, on elbows, to take make-up off, around my cuticles, around my hairline when coloring.... The list goes on and on! It is ridiculous how many things Vaseline can be used for. If I was stranded on a dessert island, I would have Vaseline and mascara. Everything else is optional.

  • Goody Ouchless Elastics

    Goody Ouchless Elastics

    Yay! No hair breakage. :)

    My hair is long, thick and a bit coarse. I also experience more breakage than I care for, and have to be super careful and make sure I am using the right products, and that includes hair accessories. These are the perfect little hairbands. They don't pull or tug, never lose shape and when I pull them out, I might have one or two hairs that come off with it. That is all. It holds my pony in place, even with my heavy hair. These are my all time favorite hairbands.

  • Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

    I am still on the fence about thermal protection sprays. It is one of those products that you really don't KNOW for sure if it is actually working. With hairspray, you see the volume and your hair stays in place; with serum, you see the shine and smoothness, etc. You get the point! :) With this one, I just couldn't tell. My hair is about the same if I use it and if I don't. So much the same that in fact, half the time I just forget about it. It is a very "forgettable" product; nothing special. Some commented on the smell, but I didn't find it offensive. It also detangles, but as far as protecting my hair, I am just going to have to trust Tresemme. More than likely, I will not be buying a heat protector again. I don't straighten or curl my hair; only blowdry 3x a week. I think a good conditioner is sufficient enough for people like me.
