    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Great beauty tool and great for homemade treatments

    I think of this as a beauty tool rather than product. It is great for fixing any dry spots. I slather it on my feet at night and put on socks and wake up to soft smooth skin. It is great as a lip balm and when I wore braces as a life saver on sore spots on my lips and mouth. This also works really well to mix with other products to create beauty treatments. I have used this as a base for both sugar and salt scrubs and much prefer it to buying those in store. Keep this on hand for sure!

  • Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    I had heard rave reviews about this product and couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately, it seriously messed up my skin. I had really good skin to begin with - few breakouts, religious cleansing routine, etc. I thought this might help give a better clean, since it really is an exfoliator (not a cleanser as advertised). I also have never ever had sensitive skin and was very careful to use the product appropriately. Within the first week of use (using it every other day), I found that my skin felt smoother, but that I started getting bumps on my forehead. I reduced my use to 2 times a week and tried a more gentle cleanser. I then started seeing a lot of redness all over my T-zone and found some broken capillaries along my nose. I also got these huge cysts along my nose and my blackheads were actually worse. I thought this might just be part of the so-called "purging" period people often claim is associated with this product. Finally, after speaking with a dermatologist, I discontinued use of the brush. He informed me that there really is no such thing as a "purging" period - which has also been confirmed by other doctors I have spoken with. Within 2 days my skin was healing. I honestly felt like something was wrong with me as everyone raves about their clarisonic, and some how I felt a bit ashamed that it didn't work for me. The reason I am writing this review is not to bash this product, but to let other people know that it is okay if this doesn't work for you. It didn't work for me, and not because I used it too much or too harshly or with the wrong product. So if it works for you, great, but if it doesn't, don't hesitate to return it.

  • Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

    This is a nice face mask. It is very cooling when it goes on and is fun to peel off. I notice that my skin is clearer when I use it, but it also can be a bit drying if I use too much. Additionally, I found that it is incredibly difficult to get the entire mask off.

  • tarte Lengthen, Curl, and Volumize Mascara - Black

    Long lasting on the lashes. The brush is probably the favorite of any I have tried. Does not dry out in the tube. Definitely worth the money!

  • Tarte Carried Away Collector's Set

    I love everything about this set, but it will be difficult for readers to find now. It is an amazing value. The shadows are beautiful and the tray pulls out. The brush has become my go to blush brush and the blush is absolutely beautiful!

  • Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

    This is by far my favorite razor. I never get any cuts or nicks. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and gives me an incredibly close shave. I recommend not keeping it in the shower though, as it can cause the moisture strips to wear out faster.

  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Not quite effective

    The bottom line on this is that it simply didn't work for me. It was difficult to apply the right amount of product. I found that it took a long time to dry - although it didn't leave any white marks. It also failed to help keep me from sweating. I have tried other deodorants that work better.

  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    This razor works nicely. I am particularly impressed at how sharp the blades remain even after several uses. Even though it costs more, I do feel like I get my money's worth.

  • Revlon Perfect Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron

    I don't curl my hair very often, so I can't attest to everyday use, but I have had this iron for over a year and never had any problems. It heats up just fine and keeps the curl.

  • Revlon Basic Dryer Turbo Matte Chrome

    My other Revlon hair dryer died after nearly a decade of use. I love this hairdryer. It dries quickly, the settings are actually varied. No problems with it and have had it for about 2-3 years.
