    Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

    ehhh...nothing to write home about

    I was hoping to love this since I like a lip stain, but was somewhat disappointed. I don't care for the rollerball application since I feel it lacks control. I feel it would work better with a wand type or felt tip pen type applicator. I keep it in my make up case, but it is definitely not one of my go-to products.

  • Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil

    I can't say how much I love this product. I have very coarse dry hair which I have to blowdry and flatiron so my ends are a tiny bit crunchy. I have tried other oil serums, but they made my hair a big grease ball and had a strong fragrance. Not this one. A little bit goes a long way, you literally need a drop. I suggest putting your hair in a ponytail and applying it only to the ends. The result is near miraculous. My frizzy ends turned to silk. Even better than that, they stayed straight and frizz free until I washed it. I even took my sample to work where I proceeded to transform everyone's hair. I have enough left for about one more use, and I will be buying the full size product this weekend.

  • Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield

    As a licensed cosmetologist who also has frizzy color treated hair, I try every anti-frizz product that comes out. I expected this to be another of the long list of items I buy, use once, and throw in a drawer. Was I wrong about this!! It is hands down the best anti-frizz product I have ever used! My Avon representative gave me a sample, so I said why not. A nickel size drop of this worked wonders on my thick coarse hair. I knew this one was different as soon as I started drying my hair. the brush went through smoothly, and as I progressed, it was looking smooth and silky. I could have left the house without ever flat ironing it. All I actually had to do was run through the ends of my angled bob, and that's only because I am overdue for a haircut. Had I had a fresh cut, I wouldn't have even have needed to. I love this product, and my sample is gone, so I can't wait til Tuesday when my order comes in!

  • Fake Bake Self-Tanning Lotion

    The first time I used this I was freaking out! It comes out of the bottle the color of Hershey's Syrup and looks really streaky. DON'T PANIC! The color you see is a guide color. It is there so you can see where you put the product and avoid mistakes. Yes, it will rub off on your clothes and sheets, but it does wash out. Here's some tips: 1) make sure you exfoliate first. The Fake Bake body polisher is great and smells like creamcicles. 2) put a little lotion or Vaseline on your dry spots, ankles, feet, elbows, around wrists. The color tends to grab really fast in these spots. 3)I usually take a shower, shave my legs and exfoliate either before bed, or early in the day when I plan on using this. I put dark sheets on my bed, and wear a special nightgown I use for tanning. This give it plenty of time to dry, and I don't worrk about the guide color getting all over. 4) When you shower in the morning after you apply, the guide color washes away leaving you with a beautiful golden tan with no orange!!

    Fake Bake Body Polish

    smells yummy

    I love this as much as I love the rest of the product line! It smells like creamsicles and makes your skin baby smooth. I always used it before the self tanning products for a perfect result every time.

  • Fake Bake Airbrush Self-Tanning Spray

    I have read some of the reviews that say this comes off all over your clothes - that is because the you see when you spray it on is a GUIDE color. It is there so you see where you applied the color so you don't find out you missed a spot four hours later! I have had some serious mishaps with other spray on self tanners, but not with this one. I'll even let you in on a little secret - wear a dark swimsuit and spray over it so you have very realistic tan lines! I know a lot of people use self tanner to avoid tan lines, but this gives you a very realistic look. The color is even and it dries quickly. It doesn't smell at all when you put it on, but I will admit, after the color starts to develop, it does have a bit of a self tanner smell. The only disadvantage I can find is that if your skin tends to be on the drier side, this makes it worse. They do however make a lotion version that works great for dry skin.

  • Nivea Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer

    Nivea Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer

    if this is foolproof, I must be a fool...

    I specifically bought this in the light to medium color because I didn't want to go through all the prep work I do with my normal self tanner (Fake Bake). Not only did I wake up with streaks and dark splotches around my ankles, I hated the scent of this. When I smelled it in the bottle, I though it had little or no scent. That was not the case. I was a strong fruity scent that I didn't like at all, not just the normal self tanner scent. I am very fair, but I thought the color on this was a bit on the orangy side. I wouldn't recommend it.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!!

    I cannot say enough about how much I love this! I bought it in Atlantic City where I was spending the weekend and was appalled at the price ($9.50). Once I used it though, I was hooked! I love the smell and it gets my hair so clean! I have pretty healthy but color treated hair. This doesn't strip the color and leaves it super shiny. The bar lasted me almost 3 months of shampooing every other day. I wish the closest store wasn't 2 hours away! I may have to break down and buy it online and miss the fun of trying everything in the store!

    Joico K-Pak Conditioner

    a virtual lifesaver!

    I have naturally dark brown hair that is almost black. I went to a salon who insisted they could make me blonde in a single process. Surprise! It didn't work and they fried my hair trying. It was literally rubbery when wet and would fall apart. After a week of using this, my hair was saved! It smells great and I would pay any amount of money for it, its that good!
