  • Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir

    I tried a sample of this. It makes your hair soft, shiny, and frizz free, like any other hair serum on my fine hair. I liked it, but it was not any different than the others. Its fragrance reminds me of YSL Parisienne.

  • Olay Soothing Cucumber Massaging Bar Soap

    I love Olay products-they tend to be the best at Skincare out there, PLUS affordable. TB was generous enough to send me a full size bar to try and review. While I loved the massage nubs on the bar, that's where the love ended for me. This soap left my skin feeling dried out and tight like other bar soaps. It is very highly fragranced--that was the big deal killer for me. I think the amount of fragrance caused my skin to be itchy. I did not like the smell at all. It was the signature Olay scent which is very perfume with a touch of cucumber. The scent lingered in my bathroom all day and my husband even commented that he did not like the smell of the new soap I was using. I recommend you smell it before you buy it. You will definitely be able to smell it through the wrapper. You probably also want to avoid it if you have any skin allergy or sensitivity. Bummer.

  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture
    7.0

    Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture

    Great packaging and execution

    The engineering behind the spray packaging is perfect. One press dispenses and even mist right where you want it--not to heavy, not too light. It feels moisturizing. It coats evenly, is not messy like I thought it would be and is convenient. The lotion absorbs quickly and moisturizes well. I really liked the concept and the lotion. The only thing that put me off was the scent. It is kind of a floral, cocoa buttery smell that I did not care for. If this was fragrance free, I would absolutely recommend it. If you like the scent, it is a great product.

  • Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Créme

    I kind of like this product, but not exactly. I may be that it is not appropriate for my baby fine hair/oily scalp. It smells wonderful--like fresh oranges. I have to use a tiny, tiny bit rubbed between my hands and smooth down my fly aways. Any more, and it makes my hair look really greasy and limp. My hair frizzed later on in the afternoon. It may be a good option for thicker, coarser hair. It is a bit too pricy for my taste as well.

  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel
    6.0

    Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel

    okay if you need a fragranced anti-bacterial

    This is a bit expensive for anti-bacterial hand gel and does irritate my skin if I use it often. The scents are strong but pleasant--may interfere with your perfume.

  • Clinique Long Last Lipstick

    These lipsticks are, in my opinion, the best without SPF. They are reasonably priced. They are very pigmented and last for at least six hours, but wear off evenly. They feel great on the lips and have no fragrance or taste to irritate or interfere with your palette. I LOVE "Twilight Nude", Bamboo Pink, Chianti, guava stain, and pink chocolate. There is a large color selection that works for all skin tones and color preferences from nude to vibrant and deep.

  • Paula's Choice Brow/Hair Tint
    10.0

    Paula's Choice Brow/Hair Tint

    No mess + totally foolproof

    The unique brush design is the "secret ingredient". This product is excellent for covering stray gray brows and to color a few gray hairs between touch ups. It is similar to mascara, but in side of the bristles is a little longer. It allows you to precisely get the color on the eyebrows and not on your skin (I notoriously get my mascara everywhere around my eyes). If you read the tab for instructions/ usage, the website gives great color recommendations. I use "fawn". It matches my natural color perfectly. It is also extremely affordable. If you are considering this, I HIGHLY recommend it. I was skeptical too.

  • Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer

    This primer is a little expensive. It is lightly moisturizing, did not irritate my sensitive skin and blends easily. This primer is tinted, but there was not enough coverage to even out my skin. It behaves well under both liquid and powder foundation. It leaves a shiny finish which brightened my face, but did nothing in terms of smoothing my pores. It did not cause acne. I personally prefer the results of Olay's fragrance free serums to this product, but would still use up this product.

  • NeXXus Color Assure Replenishing Color Care Shampoo

    I don't know that this product protects my hair color, but it does not damage or strip it either. It keeps my fine hair clean, hydrated, and shiny without weighing it down. It is not cheap, but not ridiculously priced either. It has a pleasant scent, but is too girly for my husband which makes me wish they had a more neutral scent or fragrance free option.

  • Clairol Professional Repair Daily Shampoo

    This shampoo definitely makes the hair feel clean, but dried my hair out. The second ingredient is sodium lauryl sulfate which is a harsh cleaning agent. I feel it is too harsh for color treated hair and may actually strip it. Nothing new or special. Especially for the price, I would opt for something else, personally. It was not horrible, but not my preference either.
