    Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear

    Adorable colors, average quality

    I didn't find these to be superb in quality or staying power generally. I did have one awesome manicure with the Lacy Lilac that lasted for ages, but haven't been able to repeat the experience. It seems that the Mint Sorbet one has gotten gunky, and the Lilac one was watery the last time I used it, and literally had chipped terribly within an hour despite my best efforts not to do anything. I appreciate the price, and they have some cool colors. Overall, they are a good deal, and worth picking up. Just don't expect any miracles.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

    Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

    Clean & Clear Morning Burst

    I hated this at first because it was so drying (I had the flaking skin issue immediately, but since then it's stopped), but it's actually a decent basic cleanser when used with a good moisturizer. I can't say that it really helped with breakouts, but it does leave skin soft and has a nice enough scent. I'm almost done with the bottle, and will probably return to my usual cleanser, but I might try out some of the other Clean & Clear products.

  • Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum Fragrance Free

    I used this serum for a year maybe, and actually got compliments from people on my skin, my mom was amazed. I'm not aging or anything, but it is just really good for skin in general. I bought the Equate version of this, and have barely touched it since. It's worth the extra money to get the real thing, because there was a definite difference in quality. I know they use the same ingredients, but something was just off with the Equate one. Anyway, I definitely recommend this, it will leave your skin glowing. I love everything by Olay I've tried.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour
    7.0

    L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour

    quality product, with some issues

    When I first got this in true red, I was upset because the color is the exact opposite of what I was going for. The sticker for it was more of a brick red, but the actual lipstick is bright red-orange, pretty much the worst thing you could use with my skin tone. I also hate the smell, which is like sweet tarts mixed with some weird perfume. However, even though the shade I bought clashes with my skin tone, it whitens my teeth like no other, which is great if I can keep the lipstick off of my teeth. It is also incredibly moisturizing if used generously; it will have a horrible drying effect if you only use a small amount. Finally, the smell makes my throat tickle/itch. I have mixed feelings about this product, but since it is so creamy when applied generously, and I got an intense color payoff, I think I would love it in another color. IF I can get past the smell, throat itchiness, and the headache I am getting from the scent.

  • Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad

    I've had this berry bloom palette for what seems like a decade and I never really cared to use it much. It's very chalky, faded looking, yet will stay on for an annoying amount of time, and the colors in it make me look like I'm really sick or have a black eye. I don't understand why this product was ever this popular, other than maybe the wide variety of neutral/work-friendly shades. Personally I feel like I look better without makeup than with this quad on.

  • Noah's Naturals Noah's Natural Age Repair Face Moisturizer

    The only thing I wasn't fond of was the smell, but it does a good job of moisturizing, and is probably good for preventing aging. It's not my favorite thing in the world, but definitely good for the money. It would be nice for someone with dry skin, but sometimes I find it makes my skin feel too oily.

  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner

    Pleasant scent and it left my hair soft and smooth. I haven't used it in a long time, but I miss it because I used to love it.

  • Organix Hydrating Teatree Mint Conditioner

    I love the minty scent but this makes my hair feel like straw and causes breakage. It is better used as a body wash than a shampoo.

  • Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream
    10.0

    Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream

    Great for a Moisturizer

    I actually hate using this as a night cream, but it is perfect for a moisturizer for when my skin gets really dry right after I cleanse. It soaks in nicely and makes my skin glow. I am young, so I don't really have wrinkle issues that it's resolving, but I'm sure its a good preventative effort, and it does seem to tighten my skin some, in a good way. I know it's a night cream, so it won't have spf, but my foundation has that covered, so I would definitely still recommend it for daytime wear. It does smell a lot, but it goes away after a bit, and I don't mind the smell, and my boyfriend likes it, so that's a plus. Overall, I would recommend it because it does a face good.
