  • Almay Smart Shade Makeup

    My skin falls right in between light and medium and they actually have a shade for my complexion. I've used this in the spring and summer to lighten my foundation. I really like it, but you have to make sure you blend it because you can leave streaks.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Blow Dry Perfector

    This might have given me straighter hair for about 5 days, but it was so not worth the stench. I was a product tester for Allure and I have to say, this was one of the worst products that they have ever sent. I am so glad that I did not spend money on this product. The smell reminded me of the formaldehyde solution that they used to keep the Biology experiments in. Once I got past the smell, I had to keep the product on my hair for 20 minutes. I swear I should have just washed it out but I didn’t. I wanted to see why Allure was testing this product and since my curly hair can take the shape of a cotton ball, I decided to keep it in and see what would happen. My hair was less frizzy for about 5 days. However, I could not get the smell of the product out of my hair. It was bad enough that I actually sprayed my hair with perfume. (I usually start getting watery eyes with fragrance, but was willing to tolerate the watery eyes instead of the stinky hair!) All in all, I would say save your money and invest in some good hair care. It can be a drugstore brand or high end brand, it will all do the same thing, just DO NOT torture yourself with this product.

  • Garnier Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion SPF 15

    It really is a lightweight moisturizer. I suggest using this during the spring/summer months. It has a wonderful texture and during the summer is just enough to moisturize without leaving your skin feeling parched. I have been using it lately, since October, and I feel like I could use a bit more moisturizer on my skin. The reason for the 7 stars is that it only has SPF 15. I would give this a ten if it had a higher SPF and was a broad spectrum.

  • Redken Smooth Down Conditioner
    10.0

    Redken Smooth Down Conditioner

    Heat styling worthy

    It has a soft scent. This is one of the best conditioners out there. I used to use Redken's Fresh Curls, but decided that this was exactly what I was looking for when it helped manage the frizz ball on my head, aka my hair. This has been a lifesaver when I don't have the time to put my leave-in conditioner, heat glide, and heat tamer on my hair. This conditioner is an A plus in my book! I know that this will help me and anyone else out there with hair like mine maintain touchable hair.

  • Redken Shine Balance Glass 01 Smoothing Serum

    My hair stylist used this on me and made me love the product. I actually had to have it because of the amazing shine that my hair got with this product. Z (my stylist) told me to make sure that I only used a little as it could make my hair, or anyone's hair, look greasy. It really does give the most beautiful glassy shine to hair, kind of like when the sun hits the glass. Use this at the end of your styling routine, and make sure you are not going to be using any more heat styling appliances. It can make the gloss lose its shine. I would recommend about 3-4 drops (not quarter sized or anything else), just drops for short to chin length hair and 5-8 drops for medium to long hair. Make sure you are paying attention to the size of the drops; you really don't need a lot to make your hair shine!

  • Redken Smooth Down Detangling Cream Leave-in Smoother

    I received this as a goody in a gift bag. This was one of the best things in the bag! I ended up using this instead of the Infusium 23 leave-on conditioner. I was so happy with the way this made my hair feel and look. Sometimes, leave-in conditioners have a really bad smell (to me), but I found this one was really nice. I was enjoying the scent and the way it made my curly hair feel. Also, as part of the Smooth Down line, there is a Heat Glide Protective Smoother and if you use those together, you have a wonderful combination that allows your hair to look its best. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with curly, frizzy, and fly-away hair. Make sure to snatch them up wherever you find them, they have been discontinued!!!!! :(

  • Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Leave-In Conditioning Cream

    This is one of the best deals out there for leave in conditioners. I have tried the pricey equivalents and still find that my hair feels like straw. Yes, I condition my hair in the shower but still like to add a little more after my shower. I really torture my hair and feel like this is one of the best leave-in conditioners out there. There are times when this is the only part of my arsenal that I use before I blow dry my hair. Garnier's Leave-In Conditioner and TreSemme's Heat Tamer Spray are perfect when drying and using a flat iron to straighten my hair. Using these products in conjunction, helps my hair from frizzing, having fly aways, and keeps it sleek. I sometimes use this when I don't have time to do a deep conditioner.

  • Rimmel London Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara

    I was in a pinch and decided to open the package. I figured it would be something that I wouldn't have to work to hard to make my lashes look like they do with L'Oreal's Lash Tubes. Wrong! Total fail. I have to hand it to Rimmel for trying to create a two in one product. Unfortunately, I really don't like this product and it didn't do much for my limp lashes. ;(

  • Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

    I love this little tin of miracles. I used this on my hands when they became chapped during the winter months. I also have to say that I used this on my cuticles and to seal any little cuts and such. I do have some hard times trying to open this little tin when it shuts tight. When I am able to get the tin open, it makes me happy. It has this lovely lemon scent and though it may feel greasy, it really makes my cuticles feel so much better. I don't have to worry about hangnails with this. A little, and I mean a little, goes a long way. It really does work miracles and I recommend that you try it. It does the same job as Deborah Lippmann, just a little bit greasy and for a third of the price! If you really want to see some improvement, use gloves and you will see your hands are doing so much better within a few days.

  • Boots No7 Moisture Quench Night Cream

    I initally liked this moisturizer. I really liked how my skin felt moisturized after I used this. After a few uses, however, I no longer had the same feeling. I was noticing my skin didn't feel as moisturized as it once had. I think this was a sign that my skin needed something a little stronger than this.
