Treatments -Neutrogena - Instant Nail Enhancer [DISCONTINUED]

I was excited to buy this product when I found it--I will give it a rating of 2 for the idea of "polish" that eventually wears off, is quick drying, and easy to apply. However, it didn't really work like that. It was very easy to apply (but, like other MUAers said, after the first use you really have to squeeze that bottle), it did dry quickly and had no real smell. My nails looked great and natural--that is, until I took a shower. When your nails hit water with this stuff, it peels off and so it is half on/half off. I will not be repurchasing until I hear that Neutrogena has improved the formula.

I have minimal scarring from occasional zits I've gotten over the years, which is not horrible but makes me self-conscious enough to usually wear foundation. After using this stuff about 5 times over the last 2 weeks though, I have to say that I have seen a significant improvement in the visibility of the scars! I was very skeptical that this stuff would work as well as the reviews said, but it has! Yes, the smell is anything but pleasant but it really isn't that bad, and it's worth enduring the bad smell for the result. The longer I leave the mask on, the redder my face gets so I reccommend using this before bed. I also haven't gotten one zit (not even a small one) since I started using this! Amazing! Edit: I have used this for months now, and it doesn't work as well as I thought, but still great for exfoliating. I will take off 2 points for that.
Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - Lipgloss in Kiss Me

I bought this awhile ago and only recently opened it up and started using it. It's okay as far as color goes--it would look good on most, but it's incredibly sticky (moreso than even Lancome Juicy gloss). I know some stickiness is needed for the gloss to last longer, but this is a little ridiculous! I wouldn't purchase again for that reason.
I love the "Lighten Up" highlighting foam, it's my HG. I started using it about 5 years ago when my naturally blonde hair got a little darker and have been using ever since. Unfortunately Salon Selectives is no longer and I have to buy this stuff on eBay. But it has kept me from spending the extra $$ on pro. highlighting, so I will try to use it as long as possible! It looks very natural and is foolproof (believe me, I am horrible with hair)!

I'm new to using mousse, but this seems to work pretty well. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because it did not significantly change the body of my hair, but just gave it a nice extra lift. Smells fine.
One of the best conditioners I've ever used. My long-ish hair is so manageable after using this, and that is not easy for a conditioner to do. It smells great, and for this price, you can't beat it!
My favorite shampoo. Love the price, the smell, and how it works. I have nothing more to say, this shampoo is awesome.
