  • Pureology Hydrate Condition

    This conditioner is effective without weighing down fine hair, but is expensive and no better than less expensive conditioners. It's minty freshness is invigorating, however "tingling" means it will ultimately irritate your scalp with continued use. Mint is a known skin irritant. It may be okay to just use on your ends. No thanks. Not for me.

  • Pureology Hydrate Shampoo

    This shampoo was effective, but expensive. It did not work any better than less expensive shampoos I have tried, and it really irritated my scalp even after just one use. Disappointing.

  • Redken Curvaceous Cream Shampoo
    6.0

    Redken Curvaceous Cream Shampoo

    Edit, update--Good quality shampoo

    I got this in a travel size for vacation. Even though I have fine, straight hair and this product is for curls, I liked it. It cleaned effectively, left my hair full and shiny. It did not weigh down my hair or make it look greasy. It has a slightly spicy, Cinammony fragrance. The only thing is I felt I used more than normal because this is a cream shampoo and does not lather. Even though there is no lather, my hair looked and felt clean after rinsing. It is a nice shampoo. I am dropping my rating down a notch because after a few days, it causes my scalp to itch and I have to stop using it. It is heavily perfumed and I do have allergy prone, sensitive skin. If you like the fragrance, do not care that it does not lather (it does not affect its ability to cleanse), and do not have sensitivity issues, you will like this. Unfortunately, it is not for me. : (

  • John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Conditioner

    I got this in a travel size for vacation and will be buying the full size. It is outstanding. It made my fine, color treated hair shiny and voluminous. It left it soft and manageable. It is has a pleasant, light fragrance and is reasonably priced. I loved it and highly recommend it.

  • Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Nail Color

    My daughter wanted this. We tried it. It is so cool! We are going to buy more colors. It is clear polish with fuzzy flecks of turquoise and yellow. We painted over regular turquose nail polish. I am not sure I would say it looks fuzzy but the flecked, non glittery effect is cool and different. It is quality and long lasting. Recommended!

  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Awesome Gel Deodorant

    First of all I have to say I am torn with this product. As far as gel deodorants go, this one is by far the best I have ever trie. I have never had success with a clear gel deodorant--they do not work for me at all as far as odor or dryness. This one DID. It feels like you are not wearing anything, no stickiness or sliminess at all. I got the protecting powder scent which did not smell powdery at all to me, which is a good thing. I do not like powdery scents. This one had a floral smell, strong enough that you should smell it before buying to make sure you like it. It lasts at least for a day and a half of normal activities (not exercise or swimming-I always shower and reapply after those). It does not have any white film, clumps, nor does it transfer to clothing. For this reason, it will be my first choice for when I wear anything dark that is sleeveless or strappless. The downside is the high amount of alcohol in it which can be damaging to you skin which is the only reason I woud NOT personally use it daily. I will continue to buy this to have on hand for dark sleeveless and strapless occasions, though.

  • L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer

    I LOVE L'oreal products. They are owned by Lancome and are usally great and reasonably priced. I am always on the hunt for a better concealer for my dark, under eye allergy "shiners". This is my new favorite! I have tried everything from super expensive, luxe brand to cheap and this is my favorite. I bought it in Light/Medium N-4,5. I am caucasian. This one blends easily and perfectly to my skin tone while providing great coverage. It is creamy, so you want to use gentle pressure. A little provides a lot of coverage. It has no fragrance and did not irritate my sensitive skin. It did not settle into small wrinkles, but I used it sparingly over a moisturizer. It also concealed a small scar and red spot well. If you join L'Oreal's website you can always find a coupon, plus their products go on sale. The only one I liked better was cliniques city stick because it was fatter and not so fragile, had spf, and did not settle into creases at all, but it was discontinued. Use it over moisturizer.

  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    Good beneficial skin product

    It has good ingredients, I like the dropper applicator--you only need a couple of drops, it does not cause acne or irritate my sensitive skin. It seems to have softened up a deep wrinkle of mine after about a couple of weeks of use and is beneficial for my skin. You can get an equally good serum that is less expensive, but it is one of the products I really like at Lauder gift time or as a bonus sample.

  • Gillette Venus Malibu Disposable Razors

    Horrible! COMPLETE waste of money. I bought these as disposables to take on a trip. They completely nicked and tore up my legs which is exactly opposite of what you want on the beach. I have never, ever used a razor this bad. A dull serated steak knife would probably work better. I had to waste my vacation time to find a drugstore and buy a new razor. This product deserves a negative number. Gillette should do much better, shame.

  • Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation

    This product provides good coverage and imparts a very beautiful even natural luminous glow as it promises. It is a bit heavy and greasy feeling for my dry/combo skin. All of the colors have a yellow cast which worked well for my light-medium warm skin color. I loved the way my face looked initially, but I have sensitive skin and unfortunately, this product made my skin red and irritated. It is also pretty pricey.
