Conditioner -Organix - Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment
MOIx2 7/20/2012 6:09:00 PM
I recently did some damage to my hair. Did my own ombre and I really like how it turned out buI don't like how it left my hair feeling. Lightening does damage. Been using this once a week now for 3 weeks and it really brought moisture back to my hair. I can really tell the difference and I love it. I leave it in for about 5-10 minutes. And if I feel like my hair is in super need I will leave in for 30 minutes. This is super affordable, about $8 a tub for a good amount of product. Def will repurchase.
Styling Products -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Penetrating Oil

PROS: Great smell, affordable, leaves hair soft and smooth and great as a heat protectant.
CONS: I wish there was more product in the bottle, scent doesn't last as long as I want it to and packaging could be better (a pump would be nicer)
This is the first bottle of argan oil i've ever tried. The high prices of other always drew me away from trying. Found this at Target for about $7-$8. I'm in the process of growing out my hair and this helps prevent my ends from breaking. I use about a quarter size amount after I shower to my lightly towel dried hair, concentrating on the ends. Also if I use any type of heat to my hair I will use about a nickle size. Great oil and I will most likely repurchase.
Self Tanners -Jergens - Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer with SPF20
MOIx2 4/23/2012 3:20:00 PM
I've been a fan of the original natural glow (medium to medium-tan) for about 5 years now and when I went to buy another bottle I noticed this version so I picked it up. It works exactly the same as the original formula just with a added spf20. Finally one with spf for the body! That was always one of my main concerns before. Not a problem anymore:) The scent is different and I actully prefer it over the original scent. The scent does fade after a few hours and the smell of self tanner becomes more present but not overlly poweful. Performance, like I said, is the same. After about a week of daily use you will be able to see a difference. This stuff is perfect for maintaining my tan in between beach/pool visits. Love this stuff, will buy over and over!
Lotions/ Creams -Trader Joe's - Spa Lavender Hand & Body Lotion

I love the smell of lavender. Especially before bed. I slather this all over my body after I get out the shower at night. The smell relaxes me and gets me ready for bed. Gives me just the right amount of moisture. Very affordable as well! I love it and will continue to buy.
Moisturizers -Trader Joe's - Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion

Great everyday basic facial lotion. Cheap. Doesn't make my face super oily. Has spf. Always available. And doesn't contain parabens. Thumbs up. Will continue to buy.
Cleansers -Trader Joe's - Spa Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil
MOIx2 2/20/2012 7:13:00 PM
I've been using this as my main face wash for about 2 weeks now. The first thing I noticed was the consistancy is super watery, kind of weird but whatever. Lathers really nicely with my Clarisonic. The smell is really herbally and pretty strong. It doesn't linger though, which is good. Once the product is washed off the smell is gone. Be careful not to get any in your eyes or let it creep up into your nose, it burns if it does! Not really bad but enough to make it a little uncomfortable. Once all product is washed off, your face feels really squeaky, literally. It's a little weird but the feeling doesn't last, especially after putting on moitsturizer. I haven't really noticed any big changes to my skin after using this for 2 weeks. I will continue to use it though because I like the fact that it is all natural and has tea tree oil in it, which I heard is great with tackling acne. Oh and I forgot to mention it's cheap! It's about $5. You can't go wrong with that. Will purchase again.
I got this in a gift set along with a bunch of other VS frangrances. This stood out to me the most and one I would repurchase. The first thing I thought of after the first few sprits were that it smells really clean and masculine. It's a really nice change from the typical floral and fruity sweet scents. I starts to wear off at about the forth hour to a nice shampoo like scent. I love any thing clean and fresh smelling!!! The bottle is a little to girly for something very masculine smelling but the name "Bombshell" totally fits.
Media is a deep burgandy lip color. PERFECT for winter!!!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

GREAT product!! I may be jumping the gun with this review but this product is so good so far. Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe are the two colors I got and I love love love them!!! I'm actually going back to CVS and getting Pomegranate Punk and Bold Gold. The lasting power is great. Today i'm wearing Bad to the Bronze all over my lid with no base and there is no creasing what so ever. They do leave my lids just a tad tacky though, kind of weird. I want to say they are way better then MAC painpots. These are what I want the MAC paintpots to be. These are going to be perfect for those warm spring/summer days when you don't want too much eyeshadow on, something simple. color with a little shimmer and that will last.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
MOIx2 1/30/2012 3:28:00 PM
I love this lip butter!! The color is a nice not too sheer orange. Goes very well with my NC42 skin tone. This is more of a spring/summer color then fall/winter. The texture is smooth and very moisturizing just like all the other lip butters.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
MOIx2 1/30/2012 3:12:00 PM
This is a AWESOME palette!!! Bought it on sale for 40% off at CVS, came out to two dollars and some change. TWO DOLLARS???!!! For 8 VERY pigmented eyeshadows. The 4 on the right are neutral browns and the 4 on the left are a variety of greens. Love them all! I've heard so many great things about these Wet N Wild palettes I finally decided to pick one up. I'm so happy I did. These shadows remind me a lot of the Urban Decay eyeshadows, texture wise. They are very smooth and soft, not chalky at all. Really considering on going back to get more:)
Lips -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum
MOIx2 1/19/2012 3:32:00 PM
When I wear this I get the berry bitten look on my lips. I really like it. Pigmentation is good and super moisturizing. Lasts for a good 2 hours, which is fine with me. You can't really expect long wear with something so moisturizing. Overall a very pretty berry color=)
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
MOIx2 1/11/2012 3:16:00 PM
Awesome duo!! And even better price! For $3 you can not go wrong!!! My favorite out of the two is the bronzer. It acts as a bronzer and a crease/transition color for my eyeshadow. As for the blush, it's a little too light for my skintone in the summer time. But winter works good. Nice for travel when you're trying to minumize products. Overall great duo, worth the try, it's only $3:)
Stored on it side before my first use, application was a pain due to barely any liquid on the brush. Stored over night upside down so the liquid can saturate the brush for my second use. The brush was a little more wet then the previous day, was still a little hard to apply. Performance wise, it lasts all day without smudging, flaking or coming off due to watery eyes. That is a plus. I think the dryer formula slash application process helps with the lasting power of the actual product. For a dollar I will repurchase. I think the longer I store it upside down the more moist the brush will get therefore make a easier application process:)
I recieved this for Christmas this year and I am impressed. If I was to compare these to MAC eyeshadows the shimmery ones are comparable to veluxe pearls and the matte ones are more like satins. All are very pigmented. If you're looking for more warm colors you might want to pass on this palette because majority of these are on the cooler side. Overall great product. You can pull off any type of look, natural to dramatic.
