    DevaCurl Arc Angel

    Review subject

    I have long, thick shoulder length hair and like to wear it curly to give my dry hair a break from blow drying. Works well to define the curls,but not effective in reducing frizz. Used in combo with Moroccan Oil and it works great!

  • M2 Skin Care M2 Exfoliating Cleanser

    After reading some of the favorable reviews from another reputable site I quickly purchased this cleanser. It's a gel and I use Shesheido's clensing facial brush and leave it on for up to 10 minutes. My hope since I have Melasma, (brown spots on my face) was that it would be beneficial along with the Retin A-based night cream I use several times a week to aide in eliminating these spots. It's a decent cleanser, but there are numerous drug store brands like Aveeno's exfoliating pads that are comperable for less than half the price.

  • Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser

    I was enthusiastic to use a new all around cleanser that would also remove my eye make up. I was very disappointed at the thick consistency and am so disappointed at its overall bad quality. I'm going back to using the One stepeye make-up remover by neutrogena, don't waste your money.

  • L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    Living in S. Florida with medium length hair, I've been trying for years to find a quality hairspray that won't weigh my hair down or make it dirty after one use. Bought this at Target and I love it. Though I could only find a strong hold, it keeps my styled hair in place even with our high humidity all day. Now if they could only expand their product line to include other styling products.

  • Revlon Custom Creations Foundation

    I trust the consumer ratings on this site and decided to try this foundation after reading the favorable ratings. I found the coverage to be buildable, but sheer and had several attempts before finding my perfect color match. Used my Estee transluscent powder and it stayed on all day. A loose powder is essential for all day coverage. Best for flawless skin that needs minimal coverage, but a decent product at this low price.

  • Umberto Curl Enhancing Lotion

    I typically have fine curly hair thats a crazy frizzy disaster if I don't blow it straight. I thought I'd try this on a fluke. Amazingly smooths and calms my hair and helps draw out my natural curl. I can now wear it curly when I want a change and it stays looking great all day.

  • Obagi C-Exfoliating Day Lotion

    Obagi C-Exfoliating Day Lotion

    Expect Great Results

    In desperation to get my melasma treated, I started using the Obaji C RX system both their cleanser and the Fxfoliating Day Lotion following up with a sunblock of 55 or -70. It's starting to work on my newer and lighter freckles and will continue to use in my daily regiment. Another outstanding Obaji product.

  • Moroccanoil  Intense Curl Cream

    I 've had the opposite experience. I use the entire line including their hydrating masque. I have very wavy hair that I typically blow out straight using either Redken's Smooth Down Detangler and a serum. I've used this product 3 times and for my wavy hair was very happy with the results. My understanding is that this is a product used to define your curl, it gives it extra body and left my hair feeling conditioned. My surprize in using their styling products including their oil, is that they never leave your hair feeling greasy or oily.

  • Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector
    2.0

    Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector

    Not Worth Your Time Or Money

    I thought I'd take a gamble on this inexpensive pigment corrector a try. I have some new freckles forming and was hoping since their fairly light that this would with consistent use fade them. I tried it for 3 months and two tubes with no change. I recommend the MD Forte line, Obaji- Nuderm line as well as Glytone products. Save your money.

  • DermaNew Accelerated Formula Replacement Creme
    6.0

    DermaNew Accelerated Formula Replacement Creme

    Reasonable and Effective Exfoliator

    I have melasma for over 15 years and purchased this in the hopes that regular usage would save me tons of money at the derms office and aide in removing the minor melasma spots. I rated this product a 6 because it's a great exfoliator, and would be excellent for anyone with oily skin. It didn't help lift my freckles or even fade them. I still use this once a week as my 1 exfoliating product and highly recommend this. I believe that they reformulated this cream from the original I purchased 6-7 years ago as the formula is less abrasive. Would not recommend for dry or sensitive skin. Also follow with a good emollient moisturizer.
