Nails -Sephora - Sephora by OPI Nail Polish Remover
Pamda 4/17/2012 11:09:00 AM
I actually got a sample of this in a beauty insider perk and I am really surprised how much better this is than DS nail polish removers. It does a better job at removing my polish so I use less remover, it doesn't dry out my nails, and as a nice bonus it smells nice. I plan on buying a bottle of this when the one i have gets low.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips

Love this stuff it really does work. I only use it like once a month max but it gets out a lot of blackheads on my nose. Prior to using the strip I exfoliate and if you can I recomend steaming (you can also use a wash cloth damped with hot water and hold over area for about 30 seconds) those two steps make a huge difference. Now the only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it seems not work as well on the central part of my nose while it works really well on the sides. When I finish the box I will be buying more of these for sure. p.s. don't use these on your nose when you have a pimple on it
This is alright but not nearly as good as original nailtek II. I used this for a couple of months and found it not to work as well. My nails also yellowed with this and I got stains from dark polishes none of these things did I exprience with orignial nailtek. If you are insistent upon formaldyhe free this is an ok option.
I love this stuff!! I redo my nails 2-3 times a week and they do a get a little yellow from time to time. Bubble white takes care of it for me. I usually do this every couple months with good results. After I soak my hands I just rinse my hands with warm water and use my nail brush to make sure my nails are good and clean. I like how I can purchase this in the little packets they are easy to store and very reasonable.
My nails are a peely so I figured I would try something different at first I though this stuff was making my nails worse but now after sticking it out for 12 days I see some improvement. My nails grew a little faster then normal and I have had a little less peeling. The little ridges in my nails still look the same. As far as my wear on my polish this base coat seems about average. After two12hr nursing shifts I had some tip wear and some minor chiping after. (at work I was my hands a ton). I used this under dark polishes and didn't exprience staining. I do think this base coat is a little pricey for something I bought in the drugstore at $8.
I bought this as a gift for my mother who has more ridges in her nails then a bag of ruffles. Well with this stuff on her nails look smooth. She is now in love with this stuff. She wears it with polish or alone and she tells me that she has had slightly less breakage since.
I can't believe it this stuff made my pimples worse. I feel like this stuff feeds the bacteria and makes my skin oily. I used this for over a week then I stopped as my pimple did nothing but grow. I changed to a benzol peroxide cream and pimples vanished. What a waste of $18.
This is my new HG cuticle oil fast absorbing smells great. I love the brush applicator. Very hydrating since using this my cuticles look so much better and no more hangnails. My only wish is that the packing was more travel friendly. Since it is a glass nail polish style bottle it's not so travel/purse friendly. This cuticle oil was very reasonable at about $6 a bottle it cheaper in the same price range as burts bee's yet cheaper than other brands such as opi. I will be getting moe of this when I run out * Usage tip I found I had best results if i put this on coming out of the shower and then before bed.
So I decided that my hair routine needed a serious overhaul with my wedding a year away. The girl who cut my hair recomened I try this. Now I was very skeptical being a fine curly hair girl (think shirely temple). However I am impressed, this conditioner leaves my hair silky, smooth, and hydrated plus works great with my shower comb. It is a little pricey though so I may seek a cheaper alternative. I will probably buy this again at some point in the future

Dear Quatro Trimstyle, Where have you been all my life.I used you the first time today. You are sleek and compact. Your razor head easily manuvers around my curves. Although I must handle your trimmer carefully while at work in sensitive areas you make grooming so easy and fast. Thank you for the perfect shave. Love, Pamda p.s. after months now of using this I will never go back to venus, intution or even regular shick quatro razor (which is also excellent)
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
Pamda 7/27/2010 11:46:00 PM
I decided to give this a try since it seemed to have so many glowing reviews. It smells amazing like lemon italian ices. The texture is a little gritty and waxy. I didn't find this to absorb quickly(my bigest issue with this product). Overall this was hydrating but not as much as my sephora opi cuticle oil (certainly much cheaper though). I also didn't care for packaging tubs or tins of products always seem a little unsanitary to me. Break Down Pro's - Smells amazing (like lemon italian ices) - Hydrating -Price at ~ $6 very reasonable - Packaging is purse friendly (small round tin) - lot of product in little tin Con's - Slow absorbing (compared to other creams and oils)
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Maximum Growth Cuticle & Nail Moisture Treatment Pen
Pamda 7/13/2010 2:46:00 AM
While I love the way they package this sucker and how easy this is to apply with percision. I can honestly say this did squat for me. No hydration or growth. Breakdown Cons -not particulary hydrating vs. other cutilce oils or creams (i.e. sephora, burts bees) Pro's - brush applicator allows easy application - pen applicator excellent for travel - easy to control flow of oil
Masks -Bliss Labs - Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

This is one of my favorite masks why you say. Well when my skin looks dull I just use this little guy and in 5 minutes my skin looks better. I also love the tingling feeling. Yes this is pricey but this bottle goes a long way even if you use it several times a week. So you get your bang for your buck.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails in Sheer Strawberry

This guy is my good old stand by. It is a beautiful sheer pink. It gives your nails a very nice natural look with a hint of pink almost like french mani. Gotten a lot of compliments of this. I am on my 2nd bottle and have a back up. Break down Pro's - Aplication is not streaky, 2-3 coats needed -Lovely sheer pink complimentary to most skin tones -Good for french manicures -Chips that are present are not easily spotted (due to the sheerness and color of polish) - Price $2 or less this guy is a really steal Con's -easily chips (although like i said with this color they are harder to spot but yes this guy is a chipper)
This is my first and last essie polish I will ever own.The color is so beautiful so and I really wanted to love this polish. I even gave it two good chances to see if my first poor exprience was afluke. But alas essie is no good for me. Break Down It takes about 2-3 coats to get bottle color. Pros's -beautiful color yes name is spot on Con's -streaky application -bubbles - easily chips -Pricey $8 a bottle
