  • L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Polishing Conditioner

    As bad as the shampoo version is (please see my other review) that is how good the conditioner is! My hair is long, thick, wavy and colortreated. With this conditioner, I had NO tangles. I was amazed! I have been using detanglers forever. It was also a bargain beauty buy at under $6 for a huge bottle. Great conditioner for us ladies on a budget. :)

  • L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo

    Since I do not even know when. :( My hair is thick and long with waves that undoubtedly lead me to a frizz battle just about every morning. When I use the right products, I am able to win the battle really well. I was super excited to have 72 hours of no frizz. Unfortunately, the shampoo left my hair dry, dull, limp and with tons of flyaways. My soft, shiny hair was truly transformed. I saw my mom the next day and she said she had never seen my hair so dry and lackluster; I always color or bleach my hair and it has never looked so unhealthy after one wash. I used the same styling aids and just got a haircut 2 weeks ago. I deduced that it has to be the shampoo. It also had a strange smell and was clear, more like a clarifying shampoo would be. I hope my review helps and I hope it does not happen to you. :) On the plus side, the conditioner was great but even it could not counteract the dryness from the shampoo.

  • CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM
    10.0

    CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM

    Department store moisturizer; drugstore price!

    Could have fooled me! After my derm diagnosed me with seborrheic dermatitis (dry, irritated skin caused by oiliness), my skincare routine had to change; how on earth could I manage dry, flaky skin with oil? He recommended this product to help balance and restore the skin and it is fantastic. If you have normal, oily, combo, sensitive or irritated skin, it truly works fabolously for all of us for under $13. It also contains hylauronic acid which is good for anti aging.

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Moisturizing Gradual Tanner Glow & Steady

    I just love gradual self tanners; they are easy to apply, have little to no odor or streaking, dont require gloves or a super steady hand. Although not all self tanners are created equal, this is clearly one of the better ones. There is a mild odor that isnt unpleasant and the most subtle sparkle to it. It makes building color a snap! Even a first timer can use with ease. There was no streaking and the color was very natural. I would definitely recommend! Stock up at the next semi annual. :)

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

    An almost cure for pimples...

    I have been using tea tree oil since I was a teenager; with it's natural antiseptic properties, it is the perfect remedy for that pesky pimple that seemingly pops up overnight. However, this one is not as strong as some others I have tried. It typically takes a few days with this one to notice a huge difference but for the smaller, less inflamed pimples it works just fine. If your skin is sensitive, this formula would be a nice alternative to the stronger versions. Tea tree oil can also be used for cuts and on dental floss. It is a versatile product!

  • L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 - Damage Erasing Balm

    This is a nice conditioner; it removed all of my tangles and my hair DID feel softer, but like that bad date that you just can't figure out why it isn't working, something was missing. My hair is very thick, long and wavy with some frizziness and dry ends. I think this would be too heavy for fine hair but not heavy enough for my type of hair. If you have fairly normal hair that is smooth and straight with a medium texture, this would be a perfect treatment for you. For me, time to break it off... :)

  • Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask

    I have always been a drugstore beauty junkie but sometimes a girl has got to splurge a little! I first have to say that the original Moroccanoil serum did not impress me and I thought it was overrated. Maybe that should have been my first clue? :) However, when my stylist recommended this for my long, wavy, thick hair with dry ends, I bought it. And at $40, I am practically still paying for it! Ha. In all seriousness, I did not find this mask to be any better than any other drugstore mask I have tried. I did not think it was bad but did not notice any really change. As a result, I started using it as a styling aid by putting a small amount on my ends before blow drying and this worked well. When I did use it as a mask, I would leave it on for an hour.

  • Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
    4.0

    Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

    Good Concept; Poor Design

    This ISN'T the worst razor ever, but it is also far from the best. I received a sample of this razor in the Sugarberry scent from TB. I was super excited! I literally ripped open the box and wanted to try it right away. Until that point, I have not used the Venus Olay razors before so I wasn't totally sure what to expect. However, I do use the other Venus razors and am very happy with them. I really liked the idea of being able to shave, well, pretty much anywhere! All that is needed is water. I can easily throw it into a gym bag, or take it with me camping, or even shave anywhere before a last minute date. It seemed so convenient! So I gave it a try and within minutes I was super disappointed. The biggest issues was that the two olay pieces on the razor kept "flipping." They had to be constantly wet and even then, they kept "flipping" and "skidding" on my skin, and when that happens, the razor can't touch the skin to even remove the hair. It was pretty bad. After several minutes of this, I ended up pulling off the Olay pieces and shaving as normal. I would use a dry razor to shave before I would purchase this item. Such a great idea, but such a terrible design. The razor itself ended up working beautifully with the Olay bars removed, so I can't really fault the razor itself, but the Olay bars were useless.

  • Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner

    I was not super impressed with this conditioner, so I may be on the minority with this! I paired it with the Nexxus Therappe Luxury Moisturizing Shampoo, and while I loved the shampoo, the conditioner left my hair still tangled. I found myself having to use quite a bit of conditioner. My hair was softer after, but it could be as a result of the shampoo or the combination of the two; it is hard to tell. I did like the smell; I thought it was fresh and clean with a hint of coconut. My hair is thick and long, a bit dry on the ends and a tad frizzy. I also have waves. I think it wasn't enough conditioner for me but if you have fine hair, it would be too much.

  • NeXXus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo

    I received a large sample of this from a friend and since my hair tends to be on the dryer side, I thought I would give it a shot. I absolutely loved it. The smell was a combination of "clean" and a mild "coconut," but definitely not overpowering. It was very pleasant. The lather was what really got me excited! I am one of those girls that will probably never be totally "sulfate free." I like to feel that super clean feeling and have a really foamy, thick, rich lather and this shampoo delivered! I also noticed that my hair was indeed softer after using it. I would definitely suggest for ladies that have dryer, curly, brittle, or processed hair. This might be a great option for you.
