  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin

    I wanted to like this foundation, but I just hate it. It provides very little coverage and doesn't even out my skin tone. Plus it gives my dry skin a shiny look. I like that it has SPF in it and that it goes on smoothly, but that's about all I like.

  • Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes With Cotton Extract

    I fell in love with the Burt's Bees Towelettes with White Tea, but when I went to the store they were out and I ended up getting these. I like these even more! They are all natural and remove makeup wonderfully, including foundation and heavy duty eyeliner. They also have cotton extract to soothe sensitive skin. I can vouch and say as a person with sensitive skin these wipes don't irritate my face or make it red at all. The main reason I like these better is because these don't have a strong smell like White Tea wipes. The price is very reasonable, since it's a pack of 30 instead of 25, although for something you use once I always think wipes are overpriced. Overall I love these and don't think I'll be buying any others!

  • L'Oreal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Strong Hold Defining Gel

    I'm loving this gel for many reasons. It doesn't dry out my already dry hair and it definitely controls frizz. I put some on damp hair and really work it through, It's also true to its name as a strong hold gel. If you don't spread it out enough it will harden and give your hair a crunchy feeling and look. It also smells great, a light scent that lingers but isn't at all overpowering. It's alcohol-free, paraben-free and 100% vegan. A+ in my book!

  • Stila Lip Glaze
    3.0

    Stila Lip Glaze

    Horrible Packaging

    This lip glaze has the worst packaging design ever. The click-twist design makes it very difficult to get the product out and get an even flow. You either get too much product or not enough. The product itself is not that great either. It's sticky and doesn't spread easily, giving uneven coverage on the lips. There are better, less expensive lip colors available.

  • Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser

    Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser

    Great for removing makeup

    I don't use this as an actual cleanser because even for my dry skin it is heavy and greasy. But it is fantastic for removing mascara and eyeliner, I mean great! In the middle of the day if my eyeliner is smudged under my eye all I need to do is dip a Q-tip into this, rub away the smudge, dry it and good as new!

  • Olay Foaming Face Wash - Sensitive Skin

    This is a good cleanser. Not a great one, but it's still really good. My sensitive skin is definitely happier now that I use this. It's not the best at removing makeup, especially eyeliner and good foundation, but overall it cleans my face pretty well. It's a tad drying, but not all that much. I love that it is fragrance-free and that it lathers up very nicely. Overall a very good product.

  • Philosophy Hope in a Jar

    I am so glad I only received a sample of this because it is pretty bad. The first thing I noticed when I put it on was the smell. It's very intense, almost like a dish soap smell. Then as soon as I put it on my face, around my eye area, they began to burn. I didn't even get any product in my eyes, just on my forehead and that area! They burned for at least a minute after application. Now I have very sensitive skin and so I'm sure that in the morning I'll have broken out because of this product. Do not buy if you have sensitive skin.

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    This balm is SO WONDERFUL! Now I can't decide whether I love this or my Burt's Bees better, it's that good. The packaging is so unique and distinctive, and the dome shape of the balm allows me to apply it more evenly on my lips. I love that it is all natural as well. it hydrates without being greasy and it doesn't feel like I'm simply coating my lips. It really moisturizes. Plus the smell is great, I have summer fruit and strawberry sorbet. Overall this product is just fantastic!

  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    Great product, poor value

    So I got a set of these as a birthday gift from Sephora. It came with the basic sugar one and the sugar rose. To start, I absolutely love the packaging, and I'm not usually one to care about what the outside looks like. The product itself is pretty wonderful, because it isn't sticky, it goes on your lips so smoothly and your lips aren't left feeling dry and cakey after it wears off. Plus it's all natural and smells wonderfully, like lemons. However, the product is quickly used up. I've had mine less than 3 months and it's pretty much gone without even using it everyday. Also, since it's such a soft stick you cannot use much pressure when applying otherwise it will get pushed around to the sides of the tube and become deformed. Now that I'm to the bottom of the tube, this happens pretty much every time I use it and is really frustrating, because it makes it difficult to apply. With such a steep price tag of $22, I really don't believe it's worth the money since it doesn't last and doesn't perform well at the end. It's sort of a love-hate relationship. I probably will not repurchase unless I really feel like splurging, since my $3 Burt's Bees works just as well.

  • Alba Clarifying Shampoo

    This is a GREAT clarifying shampoo. I have dry hair and it didn't leave my hair feeling like straw after I used it. I use a lot of styling products, and using this shampoo really cleans my hair and removes buildup. My hair is super soft now and it smells so wonderful. The added bonus with this shampoo is that it's natural and without harsh chemicals. Such a good buy.
