This spray is not the best... While it does make and keep hair pin straight all day, it also makes hair sort of dry and straw-like to touch. It doesn't weigh hair down, and doesn't make it greasy in any way, but you don't get and shine either. I do prefer softer, shinier hair though, even if it's not pin-straight or weighted down a bit. Will not be repurchasing this one. There are better products out there.

I love Fructis hairsprays, I find them simply amazing for long hair. This hairspray is very light and not a tiny bit sticky. Even if you use too much, you can still run a brush trough your hair and it will feel and look very natural and clean. The scent is very pleasant and light (like most Fructis products- huge bonus), you can still wear your perfume, and not have smell overload. I'm not sure this spray is the best for those needing extra strong rock-solid hold, I'd probably choose another product for such purpose. But if you like your hair soft, natural-looking and still frizz free, get this hairspray. This is my go-to hairspray, it performs really well in humidity, and keeps my bangs, and the rest of the hair looking good all day long. The packaging is nice and cheerfully green. The dispenser is great as well- you get very fine mist (which cheaper sprays usually don't have). I must have gone through 10 cans or so, and NEVER had an issue with gunky clogged nozzle. Highly recommended!

This heat tamer didn't impress me at all, didn't seem to do anything for my hair except adding some unwanted smell. I have long hair and use heat tools regularly, so a bit extra protection and conditioning is a must, and I didn't feel that this product delivered. The hair felt on a dry side, and the smell was waaaay too strong. The good thing about this heat tamer is a very nice spray bottle, which makes application nice and easy, since it provides fine mist. The price is very low. However, I don't think I'll repurchase, there are better products out there. Even Pantene's heat protectant offers significantly better visible results.

It's avery nice makeup remover, very gentle. It comes in a cute bottle. It is a two-phase, and does feel oily on the life when you remove makeup, but it does the job really well. Removes even tough makeup. I've often had a lot of discomfort on my eyelids using more expensive oil based makeup removers, but didn't have any issues with this one. It is very gentle, and doesn't have any smell to it, which is perfect. Excellent product, affordable. I would recommend it to a friend.

This is a very nice highlighter! I didn't like it at first, because it seemed like too much shimmer, and I hate obvious shimmer/glitter, but once I figured out the right way to apply this highlighter I fell in love. I usually use this product on my cheekbones for a fresher look and a bit more definition. The trick to application is to use just a little bit, dab a couple of small dots on the area you want highlighted, and then blend really well either with fingertips or with the foundation brush you've just used. This way you just get the glow, instead of obvious shimmer. The tube is not too great, I often find it hard to put the top back on, it doesn't screw on right, which can be annoying. But I really can't complain much since the price is just $1. Mine is in color "toast", and I highly recommend it for subtle, natural glow.

I got this after reading all the excitement in reviews. Wile I overall like this eyeshadow, I'm not particularly impressed. It just seems like a lot of effort to apply it in such a way that it doesn't crease after half an hour of wearing. Since I don't like white/silverish or excessively bright shades on my eyelids, I skipped everyone's favorite in Milk, and got the pencil in Cashmere, and the color is very natural, subtle gold. I never felt I had very oily eyelids, but with this pencil I can't skip primer+shadow+powder. That's the only way to make it last a bit longer it seems. Otherwise, it glides on easily, it is smooth, the packaging is nice. Not sure I will buy this product again, I feel like there are better options out there.

Absolutely great! Light and extra moisturizing.
This moisturizer is simply amazing! And I can't believe I'm saying this about a moisturizer. I got this product to review from Total Beauty, and was ready for your typical lotion that moisturizes for about an hour and then leaves my skin flaky and itchy. But here came the first surprise- I applied this lotion, and my skin felt great! All day. I haven't been using it long enough, but I already see my skin much less dry in general, even my extra-dry, flaky legs look sooo much better. The tight, itchy feeling is gone too. Another thing that I LOVE is the spray idea. It makes application really fast and easy. I have always felt like regular lotions are pain in the neck to apply (a reason to skip application), and it is particularly difficult early in the morning. With the spray- one-two minutes, and I'm good to go. I only had a little bit of trouble with learning to aim better. But basically you just spray yourself, and then lightly pat the skin, and distribute the moisturizer here and there. The texture is very light and non-sticky, so you can get dressed right after application. It doesn't leave a film on skin, yet moisturizes really-really well. I love the smell of this moisturizer too, it is very pleasant to me, but not overpowering at all. Smells like heaven! (I am hard to please when it comes to smells, btw) The packaging is nice- cheerful yellow tube, easy to hold and use. I like that it is designed in a way that you can lock the spray part by twisting the top- no accidental spilling and spraying if you happen to take this with you someplace. This is the best body moisturizer I've tried, it is actually perfect given how easy it is to apply, how light and non-greasy it is, and how great it smells. I will keep getting this lotion, and recommend it to anyone in need of good moisturizer.

Very questionable product
This is most certainly not Alamay's success. The first thing that I have noticed and didn't like was that the blush itself is extremely uneven in color and thickness. Sometimes I'd squeeze it out and it'd be darker, then other time lighter, and every now and then even if I shake it (the blush has not expired or anything like that). With all this it ends up being annoyingly messy- dripping or spitting out of the tube. When applied to face, yes, you can blend it easily, and it can look nice. For 2 minutes maybe. After that it's just gone, can't see anything. I guess the shade does adjust. To my real face color or foundation. Not recommending this to anyone, and will not buy it again- waste of time and money.

Not their best
I do like how easy it is to apply the polish, nice flat rounded brush really helps to do a good job. The finish is smooth, that is if you have the patience to get it dry. The polish can take a lifetime to dry, don't even bother trying if you don't have some fast-drying top coat. From my experience nail polishes that dry slower last longer, but it's not the case with this one. It starts peeling and chipping very fast. Will not buy again.

expensive stinky mascara
This mascara is probably one of the worst I have tried, and what makes it even worse- it is waaay too expensive. First of all, the smell is horrible! Strong and "chemical-y", no product you put on your face, especially near eyes should smell like that. That's where I should have stopped my relationship with this mascara, but I still decided to try it. The smell stayed with me almost all day. The brush is pretty rough- with longer bristles on two sides, and longer ones on the other 2. I had to spend A LOT of time on application to make my eyelashes look decent, because with a first coat they looked like spider legs (my lashes are naturally pretty long and full), so I tried to build some volume with more coats. To cut it short, I didn't manage to get much volume or length for that matter, but certainly got some weird clumps, and the lashes just looked weird. To top this off, the mascara irritated my eyes, must be that horrible perfume they add to it, never had mascara make my eyes itchy before. The product wasn't expired, and I got it at Lancome's stand in Lord & Taylor, so it wasn't a fake either. Just a bad product Lancome came up with. I don't recommend this to anyone, I can only recommend to stay away from smelly eye-products, I don't know why someone might want whatever they are trying to cover up in their eyes. And most certainly will not repurchase. Back to old good Voluminous...
