  • Dove Advanced Care Sheer Moisture Leave-In Replenishing Mist

    I've been looking for this product for ages ever since I saw all the amazing reviews on it! Finally finally, I found it at Safeway and just had to buy it. And it did not disappoint! Though I never really have problems with static in my hair, it does in fact make my hair UBER soft. It is also a wonderful detangler! This morning when I took my hair out from my towel after I got out of the shower, as always, it was super tangly. And I hate having to comb it out when its wet and causing hair to fall out. So today, I sprayed some in and a few seconds later when I ran a brush through it, there were barely any tangles! So basically, it detangles, softens, and just makes hair look healthy in general! What's not to love about it?

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    This stuff is amazing - actually makes me kinda like the smell of sunscreen. I have a small tube of this stuff that I use on my face (the big, spray version is what I use on my body) that I carry with me in my purse. It doesn't leave any residue at all or some weird, sticky feeling afterwards *cough cough* BANANA BOAT *cough cough*. My ultimate sunblock.

  • Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil
    9.0

    Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil

    BABY SOFT SKIN. no lie.

    I initially bought it b/c I heard that it can reap some great benefits for one's hair - notably, hair growth. I have some thin-ass asian hair and I was searching desperately for something to help promote new growth. I've attempted to use the jojoba oil for my hair as a hot-oil treatment, a scalp massage, and a leave-in conditioner. I don't know, maybe I was using it incorrectly or I wasn't using it long enough for change to be noticeable in my hair or it just didn't work for me but I didn't see these amazing results like others. So, for a good couple months it remained untouched underneath my sink until one day I decided to give it another go. But instead, I used it as a skin moisturizer after my shower. At first, it does seem to give an uncomfortable, oily residue but I mean - it IS oil, so what do you expect? But after letting it sit on my skin for a few minutes I noticed it made my skin BABY soft. And I mean BABYYYY soft. But you have to give this stuff a good 20 minutes or so to sink in, after that, your skin no longer has that greasy feeling. Just wonderful moisturization. Great stuff - totally worth the second chance. BUT I will note that it is quite messy and the oil kinda gets everywhere. The bottle sitting on my dresser right now probably has a thin film of oil all over it. But that's a tiny price I'm willing to pay in exchange for baby soft skin I haven't experienced since.. well.. I was a baby! :)

  • Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes

    I just bought it yesterday and tried it - let me tell you it's fantastic! It really does brighten up my eyes! The consistency is nice - not too thin or thick. And it will probably last me a good few months - a little goes A LONGGG way. It also didn't sink into fine lines like the Neutrogena smoothing stick did. At first, I was apprehensive on what shade to get but I ended up just sticking with medium - I'm so glad I didn't go any lighter because the medium is perfect on my skin. BUT, I will say that this concealer only comes in lighter colors so I'm not sure if African Americans & some Hispanics will be able to use this.. So that kind of brought it down a notch - a wider range of colors would've been great! But overall, this product is super! Will definitely be repurchasing!

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick

    This was my first ever concealer! I love the consistency - it's just the right amount of thickness and doesn't look cake-y at all. Performance-wise, it was a bit of a "mehh" for me - idk why it just didn't look too natural on me. It probably works a heck of a lot better on girls who wear foundation in addition to the concealer, but as for me, it's simply concealer & mascara and I'm out the door. That being said, it kinda made my under-eyes look like a different color than the rest of my face.. It wasn't too noticeable but I could definitely tell.. I also saw that it tended to sink into the fine lines. Even after about maybe 15-20 min. after applying, I see bright lines of concealer underneath my eyes. It's really not that big of a problem since you just have to blend it in a little more and it's back to normal - it's just that it gets annoying to deal with all the time.. All in all, It works alright and is SUPER easy to use, but idk, I feel like it's not the greatest... Would probably be a great concealer for first-time users because of how simple it is to use. I'll maybe be trying the 3-in-1 concealer also by Neutrogena - hopefully that one works! :)

  • Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer

    I only did a sample of it at Ulta but it worked amazingly! It really helped brighten up my under-eye area and it didn't sink into the fine lines underneath at all! It's such a shame it's so freakin' expensive, otherwise this would be my staple make-up product forsure. Maybe I can get it for my birthday..? Let's hope so :)

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

    L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

    I'd prefer the non-waterproof version...

    I've heard so many raving reviews about this stuff and I thought I'd give it a try. So I stopped by Walmart the other day and I really wanted to try the Carbon Black one so I did. Only little did I know, I'd purchased the waterproof version. I tried it on and it worked really well - it did plump up my lashes and gave it this super ink-black color. But when it came time for me to take it off, this stuff did not budge! Yeah I know it's waterproof blah blah blah, but still! I use a make-up removing cleanser and I had to use like three pumps and thoroughly scrub it into my eyes to get MOST of it (not even all of it) off. My last resort was to use my Lancome eye make-up remover which did the trick like it always does even though it did remove a couple lashes. & that make-up remover is not cheap! Not only this but it flakes like crazy! Maybe it's just me but that's what I'd been experiencing - I just can never find a good flake-free mascara - it's insane. But performance-wise, I'd give it a 9/10. Just the whole flaking and waterproof thing dropped it down a couple notches. Overall, I'd repurchase this mascara - just this time I'd be more careful and get the non-waterproof instead :)

  • Pantene Pro-V Texture and Shine Defining Pomade

    Works well to create texture but since I have very thin hair it does weigh my hair down quite a bit and makes it slightly greasy. But overall, I like it!

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

    The only reason I'm trying this product is to try and brighten up my complexion. So far, I haven't noticed much of a difference at all when it comes to brightening. As for the exfoliating part, it's farrr to gentle for me. I can barely even feel the little bead-like things. I guess this would be pretty good for people with super-sensitive skin but for me, it just isn't doing anything. Once this bottle runs out (or if I start breaking out) I'm most definitely going back to my St. Ives Microderm Abrasian!

  • Redken Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer
    7.0

    Redken Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer

    Great.. but only when used with heat!

    I have to say this product works wonders! But for me.. it only works well when used with heat. I just spritz some into my palm, work through towel-dried hair, blow-dry upside down and voila! I have LOVELY texture! This is probably one of the only products I've tried that creates such great definition without tons of weight. The only con I can possibly think of about this product is the fact that you can only achieve this textured look when applying heat. I'm really trying to stay away from heating tools, especially since my hair is currently recovering from years of flat-ironing. That's probably the only thing keeping this texturizer from getting a 10 out of 10. BUT if I'm ever getting ready for a special occasion or just want a little extra something in my hair, this is definitely going to be my go-to product!
