    Sebastian Professional Molding Mud

    seems i'm the odd man out here

    I am a little hard on styling products because I used to have punky short hair and now I have thick waves and curls... but this one just didn't work for me. It smells great and works great at first, but it just doesn't have the oomph to stand up to my thick, coarse, always-moving hair. throughout the day it eventually caved and just turned into excess product buildup and moisture.

  • Clean & Clear Advantage Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer

    What makes this product special is that it combines moisturizing effects with a little Salicylic Acid to give you an extra boost. Works like an acne treatment, moisturizer, and even a toner in one! I still use a mild toner but mostly just to give my makeup a base. There's not enough acid to dry your skin, but I quickly discovered I couldn't use it with any other Salicylic Acid product or it would put it over the edge and give me dry patches. So now I just use one in the am and one in pm and my skin is so happy! Cheap and well worth it, packaging doesn't cave into abuses of travel/daily use like a lot of other pumps do.

  • Frizz-Ease Weather Works Weather-Proofing Style Sealant Creme

    If you have coarse hair, you know the drill on humid days.... every now and then with the proper magical combination of products, the alignment of the cosmos, and a little luck, humidity actually converts your locks into soft, thick waves that make you look like a 60s starlet. Unfortunately, the rest of the time you end up looking like the bride of Frankenstein. This product not only locks in style and keeps Frankie at bay, but smooths so that even on the occasion the rain gets in, you end up with those magical days! Cheap and lasts a long time, even on long hair! Sometimes I dust in a little baby powder and reapply between the office and evening plans.

  • Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash
    10.0

    Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash

    the acne cure you aren't supposed to know about!

    Purpose is perfect for what I like to call the "Iodine Facial" for oily skin. My friend found out about it from a dermatologist a few years ago. Apply iodine for 3 minutes, exfoliate using a scrubber and the Purpose cleanser, wait 5 minutes, and finish with a gentle moisturizer like the one from Purpose or Jason. Once a week! This cleanser revitalized 20 years of acne treatments for me!

  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
    10.0

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Versatile AND great for your lips!

    I switched from regular lip balm to Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer two years ago and haven't gone back. Unlike waxy lipstick, you can switch up all the shades and even mix them without looking costumed.... great for my olive skin, since I have a really hard time finding pale lip colors that compliment my skin tone and makeup palette. Plus it's so healthy; great refreshing moisture in a long-lasting product from the company whose products are so natural they're all edible! And the final bonus is that it's cheap. I keep a couple of these little tubes around, and they're perfect for a clutch or change purse! Try different colors; I can't wear the "Merlot" but I can wear the darker "Raisin;" I can't wear some of the lighter colors but I can wear the lovely pastel "Champagne." Enjoy!
