    Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

    Not a bad deal for the price

    I tried this in berry and liked it. It lasts longer than normal lipstick, but doesn't dry out my lips like long-lasting lipsticks do. The roller doesn't work very well. I use my finger to apply (more even) and then top the stain with a clear or pale lip gloss to tone down the color (very intense). Do expect to reapply after 4 or 5 hours, though.

  • Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm

    My thick, wavy hair has always been dry and damaged from highlighting and flat-ironing. Then I moved from Florida to Utah and "dry" took on a whole new meaning! My hair felt like straw and nothing I had previously used worked. A sales rep at Ulta recommended this product to me and all I can say is "wow"! After one use, my hair was softer and more manageable than it ever was when I lived in the south. I could actually run my hand through my hair without hitting a tangle, causing breakage, and accidentally pulling out a hair. I'd heard Joico had great products, but now I'm completely sold. And the price wasn't that bad - comparable to other salon products like Redken (which I'd mostly used). I honestly can't think of a single bad thing to say about this product - it's that good.

  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

    The salesperson at Ulta recommended this to me after I asked for idiot-proof eyeliner - me being the idiot. This stuff is so easy to use and glides right on - no tugging the lid here. I no longer fear eyeliner thanks to this product. Only downside for me is that it fades a little on my oily skin through the day, but not nearly as bad as other liners I've tried. I've recommended this to all my friends.

  • Redken Elastic Works 09

    For my thick, wavy hair, this product works pretty good. I can use a little to define and defrizz my natural wave or use a lot to create big loose curls. Only downside is product buildup. Definitely use a clarifying shampoo every week when using this product otherwise it will seriously weigh down and dull your hair

  • CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    I love these lipstains from CoverGirl. I'm totally horrible for forgetting to reapply lipstick. Using the lipstains, I can apply and just use chapstick the rest of the day which I always remember for my dry lips. These stains also don't dry out lips more like some other lipstains do and they're pretty affordable. The color lasts too. I wear it all day and reapply that evening if I'm going out. Only downside is not a plethora of colors to choose from.

  • Frederic Fekkai Sensitive Scalp Exfoliating Tonic

    I wouldn't buy again. The small vials aren't enough to thoroughly saturate my scalp. My dry, itchy scalp didn't feel any better in the areas I did manage to cover. For a price tag of $30, this so wasn't worth it.

  • Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel

    I'm not impressed with this product. It has controlled some of my worst acne, but it hasn't cleared it up completely. My pores look about the same...large and dirty. Ugh!! For the price tag, I expected something much better.

  • SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5

    Since I'd been using an OTC Neutrogena retinol night cream, I almost bought the 1.0 instead of this one. So glad I didn't cause this stuff is strong. Works great though. Just be prepared to go through the peeling stage and don't use it every night until you stop peeling. I can definitely see improvement in my complexion though.

  • Glycolix Elite 15% Body Lotion

    Glycolix Elite 15% Body Lotion

    Good Lotion for Acne Prone & Sun Damage Prevention

    I have acne on my back, chest & upper arms, so I have to watch what I use to moisturize. This AHA lotion helped clear up some of the acne (but not totally eradicated) and it has antioxidants to help with sun damage. It still smells a little medicinal due to the glycolic acid, but not as bad as some. I'm going to keep looking, but I'd buy again if I can't find better.
