    Avon Advance Techniques Detangling Comb

    Avon Advance Techniques Detangling Comb

    I had nothing to lose but tangles when I decided to try this comb, as my mom has been an Avon lady for 25 years and buys more than she sells, often to my benefit. I have long, waist length hair and combing it out is a mission in itself. I often comb conditioner through my hair in the shower, as it is the only way to make it somewhat manageable. This comb has wide teeth which are particularly effective at removing tangles. Remember to start at the bottom and work your way up and also work in sections. Rome wasn't built in a day and if you have tangles at all like mine, it is going to take awhile to remove them. I like to keep this comb in my beach bag so when I am by the pool or the ocean I remember to comb out the knots, without crying like a baby. I would recommend this comb if you have really tangled hair and a lot of patience.

  • Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
    4.0

    Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

    Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

    I decided to try this product because I am an avid sunscreen applier and I always look forward to trying my next facial sunscreen. I have also suffered from acne scars for the majority of my life so anything that claims to even tone is particularly exciting for me. This product reminds me of the Aveeno daily moisturizer that also claims to even tone. I think the active ingredient in this product is mushroom. The bottle was small but around $12 at Walmart, which I guess is average for a facial sunscreen. The scent was somewhat unforgiving, I was not a fan of it. I used a small pea sized amount and rubbed it into my skin. Nothing amazing happened instantly and after finishing the bottle I did not really notice an improvement in my skin tone. While it did moisturize my skin, it is so oily anyway that my skin probably did not benefit from it as another person with normal or dry skin would. After this I tried the beauty balms meant for oily skin and while they are not ideal either, I do appreciate the coverage that they offer while treating my skin. I would not buy this specific product again but I applaud their efforts.

  • Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner

    Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner

    Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner

    I go through phases where I consistently use toner, especially during the summers. The problem is that my oily skin produces more oil when I use a toner with alcohol to remove the oil. This toner has about 21% alcohol which is a pretty high amount. I liked the fact that this product supposedly helped with acne scars as I am definitely marked and looking to get rid of them. The bottle is a pretty decent size and it was around $8 at Walmart. It has salicylic acid as an active ingredient which is supposed to exfoliate dead skin and be particularly helpful with acne. I washed my face as usual and applied this with a cotton ball. It definitely removed dirt and oil, along with most of the moisture that was in my skin. I started using this twice a day but it became too drying so I dwindled down to once a day and that was much better. It felt like it left my skin clean and removed all of the deep down oil that permeates itself in my pores throughout the day. The smell was strong, it had a pure alcohol smell. I used the entire bottle hoping that it would have some effect on my acne scars but I was sadly disappointed. Perhaps it would be better as a body toner for chest and back acne, because it seems to be too drying. I have extremely oily skin and if it is too oily for me, I am not sure who could use this. If you have normal skin or dry skin this product probably would not work for you. I would not buy this product again.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

    I have always been a fan of Neutrogena products and I especially love those geared toward acne, as I have suffered from it/dealt with it for the majority of my life. I will literally try anything in hopes of clearing up my cystic acne. The size of the bottle is on the smaller side but it is not incredibly expensive and can be purchased at most mass retailers. It has small textured beads that are supposed to exfoliate skin and my skin did feel incredibly soft after using it. The scent is nice too, fresh and smells kind of fruity. It did not clear up my acne, but nothing else has including multiple prescription products so maybe my expectations were exceptionally high. I ended up using the rest of it as a body scrub because it was not effective on my face at all.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

    I often wear heavy eye makeup including false eyelashes and I hate it when I wash my face and my eye makeup smears all over my face, I look like a busted raccoon, The bottle is small so you can travel with it and it is affordable and easy to find. This product does a great job of removing eye makeup thoroughly. It is gentle and works quickly. You apply it with a cotton ball and hold it over your eyes and it easily dissolves stubborn eye makeup. Just be sure to rinse well so it doesn't leave a residue. I would definitely use this product again.

  • MAC Beauty Powder Blush

    MAC Beauty Powder Blush

    MAC Powder Blush

    I have been wearing this blush for years. It comes in shimmer and matte tones and I prefer to switch off. The powder consistency is light but you can layer if you prefer a more "wow" look. My favorite colors are Peachykeen which reminds me of a very popular NARS blush, fleur power, and desert rose. I have very oily skin so although I blot throughout the day, I would definitely need a touch up for the evening. They are reasonably priced and come in a huge variety of colors. I have been using them for years and will continue to do so.

  • Arrid Extra Extra Dry Spray
    5.0

    Arrid Extra Extra Dry Spray

    It worked better back in the day

    I used to use Arrid Extra, Extra Dry back in the day, in middle school. It had been years since I had used it and I have been on a mission for an effective deodorant so I decided to give it a whirl. I've always been a fan of spray deodorants. They smell great and feel really cooling, especially during the sweltering summer. I read that any deodorant is more effective if you put it on at night time and that's usually when I shower, so that's when I tried it. It seemed to work overnight, although I was sleeping and not doing much else. I woke up dry and feeling fresh. I added a couple of spritzes in the morning. I am an active person and I work in a classroom so I am definitely in the hot seat and Arrid Extra Extra Dry did not live up to it's name. I had visible sweat rings on my shirt and my underarms were pretty damp. I did like the price and the smell, but as far as it doing it's job, it didn't. I have tried several clinical strength and mens deodorants with unsuccessful results, so it could be that I just sweat excessively. Still it did not leave me feeling confident and I almost thought about carrying the big can in my purse, then I decided not to. I guess I'll try something else.

  • Avon MOISTURE THERAPY Intensive Healing & Repair Hand Cream

    This cream is kinda thick and a little greasy, more for seriously dry skin and I would use it during the winter time. It does stay on through repeated washings and leaves skin soft and smooth. It has a light, fresh scent. I would use it coat my feet after showering then sleep with socks on. Your feet will feel amazing in the am!

  • Got2b Kinkier Curling Spray Gel

    I have semi-curly/wavy hair and it is hard to find products that define my waves without making it frizzy or tangled. Usually my hair looks neither straight nor curly. Just kind of undone. I needed something to clearly define my hair situation. My hair is also extremely long (waist length) so I really need something that works. I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It smells amazing and it gives me just the right amount of hold. My hair looked and smelled amazing and I will buy this product again.

    MAC Cremesheen Lipstick

    Review subject

    I love this lipstick with a smoky eye! The nude color is subtle and super natural and it has a hint of sheen without being too matte. I love this lipstick and will continue purchasing it in the future. I also love MAC because they encourage recycling. If you bring in 6 empty MAC containers, they will give you a free lipstick, eyeshadow, or lip gloss.
