Here are all my reviews:
  • Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

    This mositurizer is the best! I picked it up at Walgreen's on sale this week for $5.99! It sinks in right away, but completely takes away my dry, flaky cheeks. It also has helped keep my skin clear and my pores look smaller after apply it. When you put it on, it feels cool and refreshing and smells great:) It also doesn't make the oily part of your skin more oily. I can't wait to try the face wash!

  • Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara
    10.0

    Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    Full 'N Soft Washable-My HG Mascara!

    I have tried all kinds of mascaras (why I stray I'll never know) and I always quickly come back to Full 'N Soft by Maybelline! I have naturally long, but straight lashes and this masara always holds a curl with my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. It lengthens, thickens, and darkens. This mascara does not irritate my eyes and does feel much softer on than traditional mascaras. I have actually had two different ladies ask me what I use for mascara because it's that good!! And the price is right, too. You cannot make this mascara clump even if you try and it does not flake or smear. My favorite mascara ever!!

  • Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15

    I love the pressed nature of this product and the porcelain matches my skin perfectly. It looks the best on my skin of any of the mineral foundations I have used. BUT...that lasts for only an hour or two because it makes my skin extra-oily and it caused me to break out badly. A shame, because the potential is there, but it's a big FAILURE for me.

  • Ulta Finishing Powder
    3.0

    Ulta Finishing Powder

    NOT Mineral Veil!

    While I really like the Ulta Minerals' loose powder foundation, this is not-so-great. It doesn't absorb oil, thus seemingly increasing the propensity to break out. It is soft and has a nice finish, but does not even compare to BE's Mineral Veil.

  • Aveda Brilliant Shampoo
    9.0

    Aveda Brilliant Shampoo

    Aveda Brilliant Shampoo-I LOVE it!

    I have very thick, wavy long hair and Aveda's Brillant Shampoo works wonders for me. It makes hair shiny and soft, and rinses out easily/quickly/cleaning, yet without stripping your hair. The combination of Aveda Brilliant Shampoo. Brilliant Conditioner, and Light Elements Smoothing Fluid are my recipe for a good hair day, every day. I took away one star because the smell is a bit much, but that memory fades quickly when you use the awesome-smelling Conditioner afterward. Plus, I can deal with a scent that's a touch overpowering for a short while when I know how great my hair looks after I use it!

  • Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid

    Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid

    Light Elements Smoothing Fluid is the BEST Hair Shiner/Smoother

    I have very thick, wavy long hair and I only need 2-3 small pumps on wet hair to make my hair shiny and soft. Smoothing Fluid kills the frizzies without affecting hair's volume and body. I can let my hair dry naturally, blow it dry, roll it in hot rollers, use the flat iron, whatever I choose, and it still looks just right. To me, the best-hair-day regime is Brilliant Shampoo, Brilliant Conditioner, then Light Elements Smoothing Fluid. I use the Smoothing fluid on wet hair and then 2 pumps on dry hair that day or the next day, if I want to. It never weighs hair down or makes it look greasy and always tames the frizz and flyaways. I apply it first from ponytail length down, then use what remains from the top down. The smell is very nice and not at all overpowering.

  • Aveda Brilliant Conditioner
    10.0

    Aveda Brilliant Conditioner

    Brillant is THE Perfect Conditioner

    Aveda's Brilliant Conditioner does everything right. It conditions and detangles better than anything I have ever used, and it rinses out quickly and cleanly. Of course, the scent is amazing (but not overpowering) because it's Aveda. It leaves my hair full, soft, shiny, and easy to comb through. Pair it with Brillant shampoo before and Light Elements Smoothing Fluid after and you've got an easy, quick-rinsing, perfect-hair-day routine.

  • Aveda Scalp Benefits Balancing Shampoo

    I love this shampoo because it cleans your scalp thoroughly, but without stripping it or your hair. It may seem to take a lot of shampoo, but please, use a smaller amount, suds up, add some water, and then it spreads around nice and foamy. This way, you use less and it works better. Combined with the Scalp Benefits conditioner, your hair will feel new and fresh, light and soft, and just plain perfect. The smell is a huge bonus, too-someone referred to it as "earthy" and I'd say that's dead-on. A previous reviewer wrote that it makes your hair feel like virgin hair and that's exactly what it does.

  • Aveda Scalp Benefits Balancing Conditioner

    This conditioner, plus the Scalp Benefits Shampoo, has made the biggest difference in my hair. I agree with a previous reviewer who stated that it makes your hair feel like virgin hair. The system also cleans and protects the scalp. Do no be afraid to massage the conditioner into your scalp, as well as the length of your hair. My hair shines and feels soft and manageable-not stripped, not weighed down, just perfect. The smell is amazing, relaxing and uplifting at the same time. It has the correct name, since it really does benefit your scalp immensely.

    Principal Secret Reclaim Total Facial Cleanser

    Great Skin-Softening Cleanser

    This cleanser removes makeup easily, doesn't strip, and leaves skin soft. Perfect anytime cleanser, but especially great for combination skin in the winter.
