  • Maybelline New York  Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation

    This is my first try at mineral makeup, and it really makes me look like I'm wearing a mask. It feels thick and almost greasy on my face, much worse than the tinted moisturizer I had been using (and I have dry skin, but this product makes my skin actually look oily). It is easy to apply, but not really easy to blend to get a more natural look.

  • Ojon Tawaka Ancient Tribal Rejuvenating Conditioner

    This works nicely as a conditioner for the hair, but it does take a LOT of it to go though my extremely thick hair (making it not such a good value, as the product is very expensive to begin with). I actually prefer using it as a rinse-off conditioner on my face and body. It makes my skin incredibly soft and smooth. I would give this a 9, but the price is so high that I am taking a star off for that.

  • Ojon Tawaka Ancient Tribal Rejuvenating Cleanser

    Pros: INCREDIBLE SCENT (even my husband loves it when I use this!). Not a lot of useless lather. Softens my coarse, curly hair. Is even a great facial cleanser and body wash. Cons: VERY EXPENSIVE. I have to use a lot of the product to get through my thick hair, so a bottle doesn't last as long as others that lather more and distribute more easily.

  • E.L.F. Studio Mini Makeup Collection

    I am impressed with the array of colors the company put in this kit. I am a redhead with fair, freckly skin, and many colors just don't look good on me -- but I can actually wear most of the colors in the kit. I don't use the two sparkly highlighters (sparkles just don't look good on an almost-50 year old, although I might potentially use them for fancy occasions as a body highlighter). My one complaint is with the tools. They are very difficult to get out of the bottom of the case, and are a bit too small to be really useful (necessitating taking separate brushes, which kind of lowers the usefulness of the kit). Oh, and also, they should really have in included a concealer and translucent powder to make this kit really practical for travel. Perhaps they should replace the two sparkly highlighters with those two items. The makeup is decent quality but not the best, however, for this price I didn't expect top-of-the-line!

  • American Beauty Luxurious Lather Creamy Cleanser

    I have sensitive skin, and this truly does make me "comfortable in my own skin" as it says on the label. Even after just one use, my skin felt soothed and very soft. Even better, my skin doesn't get as shiny during the day, although this cleanser is so moisturizing. I'm so happy to have found this product!

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Super Rich Foot Cream Shea It isn't So

    I got this in the "Ultimate Tote" bundle, and was really looking forward to trying it. First, it smells like a typical minty foot cream (which I don't like). Second, it is extremely greasy and thick, so you really can't put it on unless you are going to put socks on right away (unless you want to slitch around in your shoes, or God forbid, slide around on a hardwood floor!). Third, it just doesn't do as good a job as many other creams I've used, foot-specific or otherwise, even when put on before bed with socks for overnight. I was disappointed!

  • Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co. Scented Candle

    Although I loved the scent, this candle left the walls of my guest bathroom covered with a thin layer of black soot! I had it burning for several hours during a party, and the next day, my husband noticed the blackened walls (especially the wall behind the sink where it was lit). I will not buy any more of these low-quality (but not low priced) candles, and recommend if you are going to use them, not to burn them for very long or in a small room!

  • Jaqua Peach Parfait Exfoliating Body Polish

    This exfoliates better than anything I've ever used, plus leaves skin super soft and moisturized. Can't beat the smell, either! I was so impressed -- I used this before shaving my legs, and my shave lasted two full days (something that has never happened in my 46 years!). I usually get sharp stubble within a few hours of a shave, so that was miraculous for me. Wonderful stuff!

  • E.L.F. Luscious Liquid Lipstick
    8.0

    E.L.F. Luscious Liquid Lipstick

    Pretty good stuff!

    Although it looks more like a very sheer gloss than a "Liquid Lipstick," it really stays on for a long time compared to other glosses I have (including expensive ones from Lancome, for example). The color I got, Maple Sugar, is excellent. My only complaint is the chemical taste, which I am not really happy with (I wish it really did taste like vanilla!). Overall, great value for the dollar.

  • Avon ANEW CLINICAL Micro-Exfoliant

    I had used Dr. Brandt's Microdermabrasion, but my husband heard of Avon's "alternative" at 1/4 the price, so I decided to give it a try. The level one, which is only the white formula, was very much like Dr. Brandt's, and I loved it! However, once I got up to level two, where the grey formula starts getting mixed into the white, my face started breaking out. I went back to only level one, and it was fine. Therefore, if I could purchase ONLY the level one, white formula, I would be a faithful user. However, I won't pay $20+ to only be able to use half the tube!
