This is a great razor -- it shaves without the annoying (and painful) nicks I can't seem to avoid with others. It glides over my skin, and I like that the head is flexible (it really helps for areas like knees). I can skip two days and not notice any stubble! I even used it once without shaving gel and it worked fine, still got every hair.

Ice Shine? You bet!
I received this as a birthday present from my neighbor/friend, and I was surprised at how well it worked. I've tried other Pantene products and been disappointed with the results ... not this time. I love the sleek, pure look of the bottle -- and I love the sleek, pure look it gives my hair after I use it. It makes the hair on my scalp look clean and sleek, and it reflects the light very well (this shampoo keeps frizzies at bay, too). Overall, a must-try. (For the reference, I have thick, wavy honey-coloured hair that I use a flat-iron on regularly.)

I just recently got this from my cousin for my birthday, and I love it! I was so surprised that so little ingredients could change my hair so much -- I just spray on and comb through my hair, and even the most stubborn frizz-prone areas are smoothed over. It doesn't make my hair stick, and it doesn't smell bad -- I actually can't find anything to fault with it, except maybe the size of the bottle (pretty small for the price). But then again, the small size comes in handy for school; it doesn't take up to much room in my bag. Overall, a must-try!

Laminates Detangling Milk
This is REAL. I noticed a half-full bottle of this at a friend's and *ehem ...* ... borrowed ... it, and I can't believe the results. My hair is always tangle-free after I shower, but when I spray this in, it remains that way even after it dries, which is a real bonus as my coarse, unruly mane can literally gather knots on its own, even without wind. The smell is good, and I love how much shine this gives my hair. In fact, one day I decided to use it on a whim -- I thought, the volumizing claims won't be true; but, surprise: they are in fact very true. The claims of "sensual body" and "luminescent shine" are proved; my hair is bouncy, glossy and silky soft to the touch. Love this product!

I use this after I flat-iron my hair to smooth down the flyaways that unavoidably spring up. The lightweight cream feels sticky and greasy at first, but when brushed evenly through it makes hair soft, silky and shiny (and smooth!). I always keep a tube of this in my locker for touch-ups around lunchtime (the effect doesn't last more than 3-4 hours). But overall, this is an excellent product that holds true to its promises -- also, I LOVE the smell. The only bad thing I can think of is that since I use it on the crown of my head near the roots since I get a lot of flyaways there, it tends to make my hair greasy after a day or so.

my go-to nail polish.
This inexpensive, easy-to-find polish comes in a variety of nice colours, from 'satin black' (lustrous dark shade) to 'traffic' (pinkish red) to 'green with envy' (a bold, statement-making turquoise). I own several bottles of this, my [current] favourite being a fabulous, vintage-y-looking orange called 'big night out'. It goes on smooth, which is good for people who aren't as good at applying it, and the brush is surprisingly good quality for the low price tag. While my all-time favourite in nail care is still Oâ€¢Pâ€¢I, these lacquers are definitely a cheaper, almost-as-good-quality alternatives.

My mom picked this up for me at Winners and I couldn't believe the difference it made ... I have thick, wavy hair that knots very easily, but as soon as I put this conditioner in my hair my fingers slid through it. I didn't even have to blow-dry my hair after -- and it felt healthy, with great shine and a loose, volumey look to it. People complemented me on my hair all day ... it was great. The smell reminds me of leather and rainy days in the city (interesting) ... or at least, that was what the smell was when this was called 'Joico LITE Conditioner'. I've been buying it over and over again ... my favourite conditioner. I would recommend it to everyone who wants soft, gorgeous hair!

none of your frizzness
Like all HB products, this smells amazing. They should make body mists with the smells ... I swear, they're teh best things ever. But now onto the actual review ... It's been a while since I last used this, and I seem to remember it significantly reducing the amount of frizz in my hair. The price is fantastic, and, as I mentioned before, it smells good beyond belief. I loved putting it in my hair and having the scent drift around me in the shower steam ... so relaxing. All in all, you should definitely try this!

No more Polytar!
I have really bad dandruff right above my forehead and on the very back of my head -- I always see the patches of white flakes when I look in the mirror. It was really irritating, so I tried a whole range of anti-dandruff shampoos, from Garnier to Marc Anthony and Head & Shoulders to Polytar and Pantene (none of which smelled very good ...). None of them have worked as well as the HB version, which, as an added bonus, still smells nice, even with the pyrithione zinc in it. It leaves my hair soft and shiny, with no oily feeling. I can actually feel my scalp tingling when I use this ... the only downside is that you have to be super careful not to let it drip onto your face; it stings and burns (for me, anyway). So if you have sensitive skin, keep it away from your face at all costs! But aside from that, it's an amazing dandruff fighter. When I check my head after using it, there are no visible flakes and I can go to school confidently, without worrying about it on my shoulders. And at three dollars, you just can't possibly go wrong.

amazing value ... one of my fave conditioners.
You get an incredible product for the price here. It quenches and nourishes dried-out hair, leaving it almost frizz-less and very manageable. It does what it says it does, and it's great for a weekly conditioning treatment: just leave it in for about half an hour and then rinse, and your hair will be wonderful (not to mention, it will smell absolutely delicious). It also smoothes out the messy waves in my unruly, frizz-prone hair. Try it, you won't be dissapointed! (And even if you are, it's only $3!) What's not to love?
