  • Dove Pro Age Body Cream Oil

    My skin had a terrible burning sensation when I used this. My mom had some sitting around the house she barely touched and I decided to try it because I usually like Dove products, but it was terrible. My skin burned for hours and hours, essentially the entire day every single time I tried this, even if I washed it off immediately afterwards. I had little red stingy bumps all over my legs. I tried it having not shaved recently, and just after shaving. Of course it hurt the most just after shaving, but there was hardly any difference when I tried it having not shaved in nearly a week. I would give it a one except I feel that my skin had a particularly bizarre reaction to it, certainly not the normal one. It bothers me though, because I am not allergic to anything at all that I am aware of and nothing has hurt me like this lotion before or since. It is also strange that I have used the body wash version of this a couple of times (very warily), and had no problems with it. Lots of people seem to love this, but it is my skin's nemesis. I would say definitely try it if you think it would work for you, but if you have very sensitive skin, steer clear of it and go for something very gentle. I did not mind the smell, but maybe the fragrance contributed to the reaction? Or maybe it has a higher alcohol content than usual? I have no idea what caused this to be so painful for me, but I assure you, I will not be purchasing this stuff any time soon.

  • Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sugar Scrub

    This stuff is expensive, but lasts a long time, it smells amazing, and I find the scent to be very uplifting. It exfoliates very well, sometimes a little too well, as I have gotten out of the shower before having scratched my legs up pretty bad. So don't rub too hard. That's only happened to me maybe twice though. I may get it in another scent when I run out, or try a different scrub, but this definitely gives you bang for your buck.

  • Bari Cosmetics Pure Ice Nail Enamel

    This is the two buck chuck of nail enamels, and comes in a vast array of colors. The price is unbeatable, the quality is good; they will go bad eventually, but other than that no complaints here.

  • Bonne Bell Eye Definer

    Bonne Bell Eye Definer

    Twist-up version

    I have the twist up bonne bell eyeliner in basic black, it's not the precision one, and its also not on this site, so I'm reviewing this as it's the closest thing. This is the best cheap eyeliner I've tried, and it shows up way darker than most. It looks like a gel liner I used to use, but it's not as much of a pain to apply. It is sort of a blueish black, but still an excellent color payoff, and the liner just glides on smoothly, no tugging, skipping, stabbing, rubbing, or other discomfort. I am going to get this in more colors!

  • CoverGirl TRUblend Minerals Powder Brush

    This looked like an adorable, soft little kabuki brush. However, I tried it, and ended up returning it because it was really stiff, was really awkwardly distributing my make-up, and was shedding. I'm just going to look at Sally Beauty supply for a nicer brush. I know it will be more expensive, but it will also actually work.

  • Maybelline New York Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder

    I ended up returning this. I bought the lightest shade, which was still orange on my skin, it made a lot of mess, and didn't feel as nice as the one I was already using. I'm sure it works well for most people, it just wasn't meant to be for me.

  • Rimmel London Clean Finish Foundation

    Rimmel London Clean Finish Foundation

    The worst thing I've ever put on my face

    I returned it immediately. It was cakey, too orangey, felt slimy then sticky when it dried, looked streaky, and made my face dry and start to break out instantly. It looked like a nice liquid foundation, comparable to my old reliable foundation for like 3 dollars. However, it wasn't even really a liquid, and was not worth the three dollars. I am not picky with most products, I'll usually try to make them work, but this was a lost cause from the minute I opened the bottle.

  • EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

    I am hooked on Edge ever since the first can, even though it's for men. But I got two of the raspberry EOS shaving creams over the summer on sale, and really enjoyed the scent, and found this to be pretty moisturizing, and the packaging was nice since you don't have to worry about rust rings. I think I did ultimately have to throw out some product just because it becomes impossible to get out of the container, but it wasn't much, and the bottle rinses clean, and there really isn't a lot in a bottle, but it's still a nice product, and I would consider buying it again, especially if it was on sale, or in a new scent I really like.

  • Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

    The lipstick is very moisturizing and lovely if I apply it after some lip balm. Otherwise, it actually dries my lips out and wears off much faster. I am dying to try this in any other shade but the one I bought. I got Tempt, which was nowhere near the color it appeared to be on the packaging. It's pretty clown-like on me, like bright red-orange, sometimes more of a fuschia, but definitely not the dark, rich, blue-based red it looked like in the store/on the packaging. It's pretty in general, but I think I will go with more of a nude or soft color in future. That's what I get though for thinking I found an exact match for my nail polish color. **Update: I have since then bought the color Kiss, which is really shimmery, a tad of orange, but actually looks pretty good with my complexion. And I bought one that I ended up trading with a friend for a fuschia Revlon lipstick that looked good on me, not her. She looked good in the color, Euphoria, while I looked kind of scary wearing it. It is a pretty color, and looked good on my hand, just not on my face. It's a little too intense for me. Overall, it is a good lipstick, but you definitely need to break the little sticker and test it on your hand or just look at the actual lipstick before you purchase it, or make sure you can return or exchange it, because this is a lipstick whose swatches never match the actual color of the lipstick and it can be extremely disappointing.

  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

    It looks nice. It is a little thick for my taste, and I love/hate the brush. My main complaint is the drying time, but I love Gray By Gray. I also have Kook-A-Mango (a crazy color I barely ever wear but wanted to try on my toenails). My mom has Raisin the Bar, which I almost bought the same day she got hers! There are several other colors I might want to try, but I don't usually find a good color selection of this particular polish in stores.
