    Smith's Rosebud Salve

    beware: petroleum based!

    i know this stuff is a huge hit, but everyone that uses it needs to be aware that its not really the miracle you thought it was. this salve is petroleum based, which means that it makes wherever you apply it become dependent. ie, if you use it as lip balm, and you go without it you lips will become chapped. i used this for about 2 years before i figured that out and switched to burts bees lip balm w/ peppermint oil. that is beeswax based, so you dont have to worry about the dependency. the rosebud salve is also very liquidy, turns into liquid if left in the sun, or in a hot car and sometimes oozes out of the sides of the container. i know this is a popular favorite, sephora best seller etc, but this is a product that actually does more hurt than help.

  • Clinique Aromatics Elixir

    Clinique Aromatics Elixir

    not my cup of tea

    i hate the way it smells on the bottle, and while it may not be fruity or flowery enough for my personal taste, it smells wonderful on certain people. it can be surprisingly sexy, just not for me.

  • Estee lauder Idealist micro-D
    9.0

    Estee lauder Idealist micro-D

    really fantastic stuff!

    idealist micro-d is an incredible product. it was out long before microdermabrasion was trendy and still can hold its own. it makes your skin baby soft (even more so if you use the idealist serum after) and really feels like its cleaning! it gets warm to open your pores and the exfoliator does its job without being too aggressive. i wouldnt reccomend using it in the shower because the heat works off the water on your face (ie, the more water, the hotter it gets!) so you might want to be sure that your skin is only damp. It also may irritate people with very sensitive skin or open pimples etc. so use with caution but when used correctly the results are fabulous. a little on the steep end at $55 but you wont find anything else like it.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub

    i really didn't like much about this exfoliator. i wanted to like it because its natural, but the strawberry seeds are harsh and scratch my face. they are not smooth like most exfoliating beads. the cream of the exfoliator is very mushy and my skin did not feel clean after i used it. it does not move around your face well while you rub it. i wasn't really one for the smell either. it smelled like plastic, foam and strawberries. i returned mine to nordstrom a few days later. do yourself a favor and skip this spring picnic.

  • Pantene Pro-V Silver Expressions Daily Color Enhancing Shampoo

    i recommended this to my sister as a cheap version of a toner after she and my mother got bleach happy in the kitchen. after the first use the brassy tones in her hair were greatly reduced. they were hardly even noticeable. after using it for about a week you would have never known that she had a 'bad dye job' before. she was very happy that it worked so well she didnt have to color her hair darker to cover up the error. it smells great, and you really cant beat the price. however, the conditioner is almost impossible to find.

  • Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

    the paul mitchell super skinny serum is great for quickening your drying time, or mixing with gloss drops to top off your blowdry for a smooth sexy shine. it smells wonderful, and the 17$ bottle really lasts. however, i would be aware that there is alcohol in it so use it sparingly. if your hair is very dry, damaged, or bleached id reccomend skipping this and using the gloss drops alone. or replacing the serum with the super skinny balm. it wont make your drying time faster but it will be easier on your fragile hair. this product gives great results, but i had to knock off some stars for the alcohol that damages your hair overtime.

  • Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel
    4.0

    Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel

    i need more 'quench'

    alot of people seem to like this eye gel, but it just doesnt do it for me. i did not get as much hydration underneath my eyes as much as i have with other eye treatments. this would be great for a young girl starting a skin care regimine, simple enough to just get her used to using eye treatments. it does not sting, and feels cool going on which is refreshing. a little goes a long way, so i can see the jar of this lasting quite a few months.

  • Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask

    leaving this in my hair overnight for 2 nights over the course of a week made my hair pretty again. my hair was terribly dry and poufy if i didnt flat iron it. i thought there was no hope, and planned on getting that Brazilian blowout until this stuff saved my head! the cream is nice and thick and you get a good amount of product for the money. the smell in the jar is very yummy and buttery, but i dont really like how it smells in my dried hair. this masque makes me excited to see what the rest of the neutrogena triple moisture line has to offer!
