  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    I've never been impressed with anything, really, from the Philosophy brand. But I love perfume so I've tried out this scent. No thank you! I can understand why other people might like it--it's not disgusting or anything--but it definitely doesn't fit my taste or personality. Perhaps it's TOO floral for my taste? I think that may be it. I feel like it's too overwhelming with the flowery scents. I prefer my flower scents to be a bit lighter and mixed in with something a little sweeter than the musk (which, honestly, I can only barely detect in this fragrance, even though they list it as one of the main aspects of the scent...).

  • Sephora Billionaire Boyfriend Fragrance

    I had a sample of this from Sephora and while I don't like it quite as much as I like the original Boyfriend fragrance, I do think it's pretty nice. It has a softer scent to the original and has a touch of a powdery fragrance to it, without smelling TOO powdery. I like the subtle flowery touches and I don't think the sandalwood comes across too strong (as I think it often does in perfumes). I may not purchase it, because I still prefer the original, but I sure used up the sample awfully quick!

  • Burt's Bees Lifeguard's Choice Lip Balm

    This balm is only SORT OF good if you don't mind having white lips. Even if you're ok with the white (for the sake of sun protection), the texture is very, very strange. I wore it once and never again!

  • E.L.F. Therapeutic Conditioning Balm

    I didn't really like this one. In fact, I was so unimpressed with it, I finally just threw it out without finishing the tube (rare for me, even with products I don't care for). The scent and flavor did not at all match up to what it was supposed to be and I didn't find it to be moisturizing at all.

  • Aveda Invati Exfoliating Shampoo

    Aveda Invati Exfoliating Shampoo

    Expensive, doesn't work

    My boyfriend has remained loyal to his barber over the years, which eventually landed him at an Aveda spa to get his haircuts. He has a receding hairline and his barber really pushed this shampoo on him, claiming it would help slow down his hair loss. Honestly? Neither of us has noticed any change and he's been using it for a couple of months. Mostly it just costs a lot of money.

  • Aveda Madder Root Shampoo

    I love this shampoo, especially when I used it with the coordinating conditioner. I didn't expect the shampoo alone to brighten up my natural red hair as well as it did, but the few times I used it without the conditioner, it really did still make my hair color glow. I only stopped using it (and deducted one star) because it's so pricey. Otherwise it's an excellent product.

  • Aveda Hand Relief
    9.0

    Aveda Hand Relief

    Second favorite

    This is my 2nd favorite hand cream, I think. I don't love the price, especially considering how often I use hand cream (several times a day, especially when I'm at work). This is a nice thick cream, so I only need a small dot to moisturize my hands and the moisture really holds well. It's not too greasy and the scent is pleasant without getting in the way of whatever perfume I'm wearing. Overall it's a very nice hand cream, even doing well with moisturizing cuticles (and I have lots of trouble with dry cuticles). I definitely recommend this one, if you don't mind spending the money.

  • Aveda Control Paste
    10.0

    Aveda Control Paste

    Great product!

    My boyfriend buys this for his hair, but I steal a little from time to time to style my pixie cut. This is a really great product that gives excellent texture for styling without any greasy look. You don't REALLY need very much but if you overuse it, it won't make your hair look dirty or gross. The scent is also nice without being too heavy or overwhelming.

  • Aveda Madder Root Color Conditioner

    This is a 10 star product, I only deducted one start because it's so much more expensive than I would like it to be. This conditioner really does boost the red tones!! It works great in natural or dyed red hair and will even add red highlights to brown hair (which is how I figured out that my roommate at the time was using my conditioner without asking--I didn't really care except when I asked her about she lied! I could see it in her hair!! Crazy). I also loved how soft and shiny this made my hair and the scent is very nice. Unfortunately I just couldn't justify spending so much on conditioner when my natural red color is pretty great all on its own.

  • John Frieda Radiant Red Color Last Conditioner

    I did not like this conditioner at all. I have natural red hair, that I had dyed a different shade of red at the time. My hair color still faded just as quickly as with any other shampoo AND it dried out my hair.
