    PMD Personal Microderm

    so innovative

    I received this free (thank you!!) to try and was very excited but also a bit anxious considering detailed instructions and technique. It was easy to put together and get started. You have to read the instructions and watch the video otherwise you can actually hurt/irritate your skin quickly. The suction threw me off a bit (a bit strong and you have to make sure you keep moving the device/ don't hover over one area even when it is tempting) and takes some getting used to especially in areas other than cheeks and forehead (around nose and chin). I used the very sensitive disk first and could feel it working and see the skin/flakes as I worked areas of my skin. I was disappointed that by the end of my first use, I could tell the tip was well worn- i didn't feel the action of tip and beads as much on the second side of my face. Next time, I'll start in a different area. I had slight redness after the first use that disappeared quickly (within minutes). I was able to feel the new softness and smoothness to my skin. It obviously removed dead skin that my exfoliator could not do. I can't say I noticed a huge difference after first use but it will work to freshen my skin and expose a fresh layer. I need some more time with the device to see long term difference. I did notice that the serum product and following moisturizer I used afterwards absorbed very nicely and I felt my skin soft and supple all day, even next day it felt smoother. I usually can tell if my creams absorb or not but this was clear and my skin sucked it all up. Exfoliation is so important so that you can expose a new layer to all the great products that are also important afterwards. A bit anxious about trying the stronger tips but will work gradually and try to perfect my technique before I proceed. I think this is a great at-home device for easy exfoliation. The replacement tips are surprisingly not that expensive so I can realistically keep up with using the device. I like it and hope I don't become overzealous because I can see how you can get carried away and over-exfoliate. Very grateful to have this and will make a big effort to put this in my weekly routine.

  • Wella Shimmer Delight Shine Spray

    Wella Shimmer Delight Shine Spray

    Light and might add shine

    I received this product from total beauty to try out-thanks! I have to say that I liked the fact that it went on easily and was a very light finish on my hair- it didn't make it feel tacky or clumpy or greasy. I have trouble since my hair is slightly in the oily side with products building up and making my hair dirty but this didn't do so, even if I added lots of spritzed vs just a couple. The thing is my hair is usually very shiny and I can't say this didn't anything for the shine. Hard to tell the benefits but it probably added a bit more sheen. For those looking for that extra shine, I would give it a try if in your price range. Definitely doesn't add weight to your hair

  • Mary Kay TimeWise Repair Eye Renewal Cream

    I received a full size sample of this (thanks total beauty) and had the opportunity to use it for about a month. I was impressed with the metal applicator tip- I've seen lots of new products with this feature and must say it is clever- cooling effect is great for puffiness. Consistency was good- not too runny but not like a thick balm either, moisturizing serum. Absorbed well, I felt moisturized all day and smooother in general. not sure it did anything permanently for my fine lines, but I like how it felt and held up all day. Nice moisturizer with cooling tip- good for me!

  • Vaseline Total Moisture Body Lotion

    I am not that crazy about the fragrance but fortunately it didn't last long. Lightweight product that absorbs quickly and left my legs smooth most of the day. I don't have very dry skin but use a lot of moisturizer in summer months when skin is more exposed. Good, cheap product that does the trick if you want a nice, softening moisturizer

  • L'Oreal Paris EverCrème Sulfate-Free Moisture System Cleansing Conditioner

    So I was hopeful the first time I used this because I loved the scent and thought my hair felt smooth and hydrated. Next day it just seemed like I had a ton of buildup in my hair. I don't usually wash everyday but I felt the need to after this. Can't say I love the cleaning power. Most times I used this I couldn't get a good lather going and knew my somewhat oily hair wasn't 'squeaky clean' which can last me a couple of days. Hate the pump- needed to pump about 8-10 to get a decent amount out of the bottle. I love the fragrance but not thrilled about cleaning ability. I did try this after my regular shampoo and it worked better (after I did the cleaning).

  • Clairol Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam
    6.0

    Clairol Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam

    interesting, not the best for grey

    Thanks for the free bottle to test! Had to give it a try and curious about the foam. Very easy to use, mix. Since my biggest thing for hair color is grey root coverage, I like to apply first to the grey and then the rest of my hair for best coverage. My tip, apply to grey for ten minutes first then apply to rest of hair for 25 minutes. Instructions indicate to leave the whole thing on for an extra 10 minutes for grey coverage but I didn't want to damage all my hair that way, so I switched it up. When I first applied, I tired to use foam to cover grey adequately which was a challenge. I like to use a brush to get it on grey and that wasn't really possible with foam. Did my best to get the grey adequately covered for ten minutes then worked it in (using the whole bottle) on my long hair. Not too messy. Overall, happy with the color (dark brown) but grey hair (as indicated on the box) were a bit lighter like a highlighted effect. Not horrible but still not my idea of great grey coverage which is what I am looking for. Now I just need to see how it fades and what happens to these lighter parts- hopefully not brassy. Easy to use if you want one color with some dimension to it. Much prefer the 10 minute colors instead of the long 35 minute color! May try again- If i get it for free or real cheap!

    not bad!

    great idea and it looks great, but I don't like wearing sticky glue on my lips. Maybe if you have short hair

    Sebastian Whipped Creme

    yay for mousse

    why I thought this was outdated- I don't know! Great light texture goes on easily without greasy feel. so afraid this would make my hair 'poofy' but it gave it great volume that lasted all nght.

    Sebastian Microweb Fiber

    great for texture without greasy feel

    love that a little goes a long way with this. Rub a dab between palms and apply after all finished for a polished look or scrunch to texturize. Sometimes these can get greasy after short while, but this didn't weigh my hair down even if I didn't wash it the next day. Cool and well worth it for fly aways and texture
