Conditioner -Garnier - Fructis Leave-In Conditioning Cream, Sleek & Shine

I used this product when I used to have relaxed hair and it left my hair instantly moisturized. I even used it as an everyday cream to keep the sun from drying my hair out. Excellent product and it smells really good.
This product is a definite no no for natural hair! I bought this because I just wanted to use one product that would wash my hair and still condition it at the same time. This did the total opposite! After rinsing it out my hair was sooo dry and thirsty! I had to deep condition my hair again. I threw out the bottle the next day.

This is the best natural moisturizer around! I use it as a hot oil treatment, a sealant and an everyday body oil. This stuff is way better than most products that claim to be effectively moisturizing! My hair is coarse and kinky but after I section it up and coat it with this bad boy, my hair feels soft and easy to style. The bonus it does for my skin is that it keeps it healthy and supple. I love using it right after a nice, warm shower. Works waay better than any man made lotion in my opinion!
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black

This cream eyeliner is one of the best eyeliners I've ever used! It goes on smoothly, lasts all day and has a nice, gorgeous black hue to it. I used this on an everyday basis but it dries out pretty quick. I had to throw it out because I microwaved it one too many times but you've got to make sure to tightly close it after each eyeliner application.
I hate this mascara with a passion. I would rather use Maybelline's Great Lash mascara as a better alternative. The brush is bulky and I can't even apply any mascara on my outer lashes without it having to leave a black smudge by the corner of my eyes. The plastic bristles just scratch my eyes and I haven't gotten any volume. I mainly bought it after I saw the Drew Barrymore ad but I won't recommend this product to anyone.
This styling cream smells awesome but it sucked. It did a better job on styling my hair extensions than my own actual hair. I applied it to my hair one day to actually see if the product would get rid of the frizz I consistently get and it left a white sticky film on my kinky hair. This product is better for people with straight hair. I was upset that I spent $22 on it but I do love the cute packaging.
The only wonderful thing I have to say about this product is that it gave my lashes that volume that I have always wanted. I loved how this mascara gave my lashes a dramatic black color. Sadly, this product flakes. During the day, I noticed black specks on my under eyes. I've even tried mascara primer and it still does nothing to prevent the flaking. I won't buy this product again until they create a formula that's non-flaky.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner

Worst product ever. It made my skin crack around my tzone area and nose. I returned it back to where it belongs.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

The best toner I have ever used! Keeps my combination skin balanced and oily free. I love how it seeps into my pores and removes all the makeup water can't do. My skincare routine has never been easier. I love how I finally found something that's 100% natural and affordable.
I love this mineral foundation!! Its the perfect match and you can apply it to your face evenly. I hate liquid foundations they always tend to feel heavy and irritate my face. It feels so light and it feels like my skin can breath. And the definite bonus it matches exact skin tone. Definitely my HG foundation.
Moisturizers -AMBI - Even Clear Skincare Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30

This is my HG sunscreen lotion for my face and neck! It doesn't leave my skin with that white texture I usually receive from most sunscreens and it moisturizes my face. The downside to it is that I have combination skin and it covers my tzone and my nose with an oily slick feeling. But I still love it.
It made my acne scars disappear which thats a good thing but it also made my face two shades lighter than the rest of my body. I'm not a fan of products that contain hydroquinone so I won't purchase this again.
Cleansers -AMBI - Even Clear Skincare Exfoliating Wash
ljoseph29 11/7/2012 8:51:00 AM
I used this product for this first month and my acne disappeared! I was soo happy! This scrub is soo amazing! Its not too harsh and its so gentle on the skin. It exfoliated my skin so well leaving it nice and smooth. My skin wasn't squeaky clean afterwards. The bonus is that its also affordable. Awesome product from AMBI.
Honestly, this isn't a complexion bar at all. I used it for my face and it completely left a stripped feeling after I dried my face. My skin around my t-zone was peeling and I was left with that really tight feeling. Plus it did nothing for my acne. I liked the smell but its not really worth using it to clean your face.
This scent smells nice and delicious. Its not too strong and I have a sweet smell lingering all night. I still love it but I'm bored of the smell. Time for something new.
