    Kiss Maximum Speed Nail Glue

    NOT for Natural Nails

    I purchased this product because of the claim on the package that this worked for both natural and acrylic nails. I have active length natural nails, and cracked the side of my thumb nail and wanted to apply to glue to hold it in place. However, this didn't even last three days. I followed the instructions, and it just wouldn't hold the seal on the nail and it ended up catching today and ripped off. I am not sure how this product would work with acrylics, but it did nothing for me. It was easy to apply and appeared to be very sticky immediately upon application, and I was surprised that it just didn't work out.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Glow Moisturizer with SPF 15

    I recently lost my job and had to say Ahhhhh-dios to my $36 Dermalogica moisturizer. Ouch. So, I went to Walmart looking for a budget moisturizer. I have always been one to save on cleanser since it washes down the drain anyway, and splurge on moisturizer. However, I was surprised with this product! I have combo/dry skin in the winter and combo/oily in the sumer; it works just perfectly. I also didn't notice any "glitter" on my hands or face, and I am glad of that. In addition, I do prefer a higher SPF, so just for good measure I apply my SPF 30 block over this moisturizer. I have not had any dificulties at all and do like this moisturizer. However, I do worry about what ingredients I may be putting on my face since this was only $4.97. I will most likely going back to Drmalogica, but this is a great budget moisturizer!

  • Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel Skin Soothing with Vitamin E and Shea Butter

    This shave gel is just okay. It does the job, but the smell was awful. I received a free sample of this product with a package of Venus razors, in Floral Passion. The smell was unpleasant and seemed to linger - it reminded me of a grandmother's perfume - flowery but stale smelling. Ick. On top of that, I prefer Skintimate better. The cans are cuter, more fragrances to choose from, and fresh and young frangrances. Much more appealing. This product is okay for free, but I wouldn't purchase it.

    Matrix Sleek.look Styling Creme

    Didn't Work For Me

    Maybe I just didn't understand what this product was supposed to do, but I felt like it had more "hold" than I was looking for. After I was done with my blowout, it felt sticky and sort of tangly, rather than soft and smooth. I am not sure what went wrong, but I took it back to the store the next day.

  • TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

    I am so surprised with the reviews and ratings on this product. Admittedly, I have never used a dry shampoo until this one. However, I have not had any issues with this. My hair is long and thick and I just couldn't wash it everyday, so I wash it 2-3 times per week and use this product in between. I do like it but I wish it had more of a scent. A LITTLE goes a long way, so maybe that was the issue with the other reviewers? I only spray it on the areas that are needed, that are a bit oily or flat. Typically, that is my bang area and my center part. I am also a brunette and if too much product is applied, it will look white or gray. The product is coming out, even if it doesn't look like it. (I made that mistake once before!) I give it a minute or two, then use my fingers instead of a brush to fluff my hair and it gives me good volume. I have had an instance where the product felt a little like build-up and that was when I applied too much and didn't realize the product was coming out of the can. That also happened once before when I used the product for two days straight. However, if used correctly for your hair type and texture, I think this is a good solid product. I have not tried Batiste which is a well known Dry Shampoo, but would like to because I am told they have scent options which I am looking for.

  • L'Oreal Paris Clean Artiste Eye Make-Up Remover

    I have this makeup remover in the Waterproof verion and lke this a lot! I used to use Clinique's version and I think Loreal's does a much, much better job. It doesn't leave a "ring" of eye makeup around my lashes.

  • Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

    I received this product for free when I purchased another product. At first, I thought it was a bit hard and I had to press deeply to get the moisture I wanted. Maybe the bees wax takes some geting used to? I do like the peppermint oil in it, but the lip balm itself is a bit sticky. I do prefer other balms to this one, but I know some are Burt's Bees fanatics and I totally understand! ;) The balm did soften up a bit after several uses.

  • Sweet Spot Labs Sweet Spot Gentle Wash

    I really like - no love - this product! I am sort of irritated with the reviewer that stated it was overpriced. The bottle is a 4 oz bottle for $12, and you need about the size of a pencil's eraser to cleanse the area. That is such a small amount. I have had mine for over a month and have barely even made a dent in the bottle. I wash my intimate area first, then use Dove body wash for the rest of my body, and rinse. They also sell this at Beauty First, which is more convenient than purchasing from the website. It truly is a great product and a great value. I anticipate this bottle will last 4-5 months. I purchased the Basil Grapefruit, and next time I will purchase the Lavender. In addition, this is the only feminine wash I am aware of that is PH BALANCED to your vagina. This is supposed to reduce or eliminate yeast infections and bacterial infections. Highly recommended!

  • Sweet Spot Labs SweetSpot Labs On-the-go Wipettes Aroma

    I have this product in the Citrus and in the multi-pack. I really like the convenience of it, the soft scent, the alcohol free aspect and the softness of the wipe itself. The best part of the Sweet Spot products is that they are all PH BALANCED to your "sweet spot" and helps to prevent and eliminate infections. Yay! Highly recommended.

  • Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co. Scented Candle

    Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co. Scented Candle

    Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co. Candle

    These candles are okay. I am a HUGE candle connoisseur, in fact, I even have two cabinets full of candles and home fragrance. Friends say I am addicted; so what? I am a happy addict. :) However, to compare to another brand (Yankee) that is easily available, I actually prefer Yankee. For one, you get more for your money. I o...nly buy Slatkins at the BBW outlet or when they are on sale. The Slatkins are smaller for the price compared to the Yankees. Plus, you can't beat it at Bed Bath and Beyond with the coupons and the Yankee candle of the month. Two, the Yankee scents are consistent throughout the entire burning experience. The Slatkins are scented with oil. When they are lit for too long (more than 3 hours or so - and yes, I am guilty of this!), the oil burns before the wax does. You end up with inches of wax left and no scent. Ick. Overall, I just don't think they are the "World's Geatest" - and this is coming from a candle snob. However, Vanilla Shortbread is my absolute favorite scent! I would sacrifice my first born for this candle. Well, when I have a first born. ;)
