    Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser

    Great All Season Item

    This is one of those products that has multi uses. Itdefinitely removes any makeup or sweat/dirt better than any other facial cleanser. I will add that this product should be used in moment of relaxation (before bed/after work), because I personally like to really rub it deeply into my skin and then remove (never had a pore clogging problem with this). If you dont' have drier skin, this might be a little bit heavy/greasy....but I LOVE IT. And after washing your skin stays moisturized. In the summer, I love to keep a jar in the fridge and put it on after being outside...decadence! During the winter, just use it right out of the jar and really rub it in..your skin will stay super moisturized. Always keep it in the medicine cabinet.

  • Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid Lotion - Original

    This is the best and most classic moisturizer out there, hands down. No matter how many moisturizers I try or how many beauty products may try to steal the #1 spot...this is the one that's affordable and amazing enough to keep in my travel bag, office, car..wherever. Great item with such a comforting, clean smell. Use the good stuff in the morning but keep this around all day. My mom used this her whole life and her skin is flawless. If you can only get one cream, then get this one! I can't rave enough.

    Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

    Not Sure If It Works, So Not Worth the Money or Effort

    I tried this item a few years ago...and I guessed that it worked? I used it a few times and love the foaming feel and the vitamin C fresh scent but other than making my face feel a little drier a few times...I'm not sure WHAT it did. There are definitely other items out there that I think work better for whatever this is supposed to do. Wouldn't recommend or buy...even though i tried to like this item because it gets such great reviews.

  • Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Conditioner

    Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Conditioner

    Fan for Years, Smells Amazing

    First off, this item smells amazing and that smell lasts forever. I dont know what it is but it's so delicious (read: guys even notice it). I love conditioners that have lasting smells, but dont overpower. Now, onto the point of this conditioner,...yes it does provide volume without the expense of too much dryness. I was originally a fan of the shampoo before I met the conditioner...I think the conditioner works better (if you had to choose one, budget friends). The shampoo is REALLY drying. I always have a bottle of this on hand....it's something that your hair craves every now and then once you use. Buy some!

  • TRESemme Smooth & Silky No Frizz Shine Spray
    4.0

    TRESemme Smooth & Silky No Frizz Shine Spray

    Sticky, Good on Initial Use, Not Recommended

    This is a pretty sticky item that clogs up the pump easily and can become really heavy on your hair. The pump never sprayed because it would get clogged every time I used it. I even tried transferring to other bottles, but it seemed to dry up easily (a lot of alcohol) and though it kept my hair straight, by the next day my hair would feel greasy and flat. I give it 4 stars for the smooth shine that my hair got on the first day being used...but other than the initial day, this is a pretty messy product that I dont recommend. There are much better items out there. Oh, and it doesn't really keep frizz out that well...but if you were to put an oily mess in your hair then I suppose it would take a bit to get it to move based on heaviness

  • Bliss Lemon & Sage Soapy Suds Shower Gel

    Bliss Lemon & Sage Soapy Suds Shower Gel

    Smells Amazing, Just a Little Drying

    When I first got this body wash I really loved it...it smells AMAZING!! I used it for years as my go to summer body wash....definitely the best wake up body wash all around unless you have a love for minty smelling body washes. If you dont and you love citrus, this is your shampoo. Smells amazing, but not in a lemony (pledge) fake smell way...just fresh. My only vice was that I can't use this body wash if it's not summer, it's just not good for my skin in the winter air. I wish they had a more moisturizing version of the body wash as the using the body butter after shower is just a little bit too much lemon sage for me. I'm not a fan of using all of the products in a line...If it works for you, then it's a 10, but I had to give it a 7 for my personal use.

  • Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash

    Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash

    The Only Body Wash That Heals

    I went through a period of time in which I was allergic to any costume jewelry or metals. I went to some of the most well renowned dermatologists in NYC....they provided tons of creams and serums to cure the brakeouts on my ears, neck and wrists....nothing worked. Finally, I read a review about Aveeno...and I got this body wash. After almost 2 years, this was the only body wash that saved my skin. It was restored after such a long battle...i'm sad to see this item be discontinued. It had a great smell...I'll miss it if I use the fragrance free version :(

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Curl‑Perfecting Spray

    I have long curly/wavy hair...depending on the weather, but it's also prone to frizz (esp on dry day). For years I've been searching for a spray that would accentuate my curls, but give enough hold to keep them together all day. This is the best I've found but I have yet to find the perfect ten. It definitely holds curls together but it makes them a little bit crunchy. I also feel that I have to use a lot of this product to get a great look...which means it runs out quickly and it's not that easy to find anymore. I do like that it definitely adds shine and smells very good. Overally concensus, I will always keep this in my arsenal of hair supplies, it's a staple that I'm used to and probably can't live without even though it's not a perfect 10. It's like that best friend that might complain all of the time, but is always there for you when you want predictable, tried and true results. The quest continues,but this one stays. (i just discovered Morroccanoil curl mousse..a close second to this item, but only because I enjoy a spray much more than a mousse).

  • Aussie Moist Conditioner

    Aussie Moist Conditioner

    Temporary Love

    When I first got this product, I was in love after my first use. My hair was immediately bouncy and soft, as if I had just stepped out of the salon after a fresh hair cut. I have very long hair and so it's very important to keep it well conditioned, especially down to the tips - this conditioner definitely revived any signs of heat tool/blow dryer use. I raved about this and told all of my friends (they noticed my hair)...but then after a few months (on to the second bottle) I fell out of love. After a while, I felt that maybe it caused build up or that it just wasnt helping my hair anymore. My hair started becoming a little weighed down and I lost interest in this...though I do keep the old bottle around and use it every now and then. If not used every time you wash your hair and it is alternated with other lighter conditioners, it seems to work just fine. As a last note, I must rave about the smell. I have alwas loved the smell of aussie products and for that, it should get at least five stars. One of the few conditioners from which the smell stays in your hair all day long. Love that!!!!

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

    This is the best eye shadow primers that I've ever used. Works great with a heavy pigmented look and on light shadows, doesn't change the color of your shadow and definitely allows no creases. I've been using this item since it was a new item and it has never failed me, even when I've cheated with other items (ahem, Urban Decay..and i'm a big UD fan). The only con for this item, it's a little bit watery...but I guess that's what keeps it feeling like "nothing" on your lid. This item can work on all skin tones and with any hue of shadow. Very impressive. Definitely part of an all night party make up arsenal...make it a staple and you won't be disappointed.
