This is by far my favorite dry shampoo spray. It smells wonderful and blends really well. My flat, greasy hair loves the volume it gives me!
I have very oily hair if I don't wash it for one day, and this product does a decent job in keeping my hair not looking totally gross when I am in a hurry. I hate how it doesn't blend well (I have to put it on and rub it in, then get it wet so it doesn't show). It does have a nice citrusy scent, and it works quite well for touch ups. I also don't like how when I do use it (not matter how little I use) it flies in the air and gets on my clothes.
I use the original scent which reminds me of honeysuckles. My boyfriend originally turned me onto to this deodorant and I have to say I haven't looked back in 6 years! I used to hate roll ons because they left a slimy/sticky feel but this one doesnt. Also, the scent lasts all day and I feel very fresh and not smelly all day.
This former prescription-only lotion is great for dry skin and really helps speed up the exfoliating process. The fragrance is a strong ammonia like formula but it doesn't linger. It isn't too creamy and blends easily.
This product delivers in making pores looking smaller and skin looking dewy and fresh. The tube lasts much longer than i had anticipated.....almost a year! I used it about 3 times a month. Easy to go on, doesn't burn, feels cool, dries evenly and without a lot of cracking.

This sunblock made my eyes burn like crazy and it doesn't matter if I just focused on my t-zone and cheeks. This was difficult for me to blend and I don't think the high spf did much as my melasma became worse. It has been resigned to my arms, neck, and legs.

This has been a go-to moisturizing oil of mine since grade school. I use it during the winter months immediately after the shower. Every once in a while I will use it as a shave lotion too. The trick is to use just a bit and it will absorb readily. I love the scent and enjoy how soft it makes my skin feel. Since my skin can feel very, very dry in winter I also use this with AmLactin cream and the combo is perfect.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I really love this product, except it does sting my eyes. I don't know what the big deal about the smell is - mine smells just fine. I think some reviewers may be too sensitive to the lactic acid smell. Anyhow, this does a great job moisturizing but I find that I have to give it up for a few weeks because it stops becoming effective after awhile. The packaging quality is good for type (jar) but not in terms of sturdiness - the jar is made of plastic and seems to be cracking on the sides even though I have never traveled with it.
This product works, but not for the long haul. I find myself reapplying it often. It comes out too bright on my skin if it's too hot and I pretty much use this on my cheeks and lips, because it's just the same as the o-blush or whatever it's called. I was disappointed with this product, but I will use it because it does work for a little while and is easy to carry around in a purse.
I have used this since high school and it works wonders for me. I have used it off and on, and I always think to myself, "why did I ever leave?" This product can burn when put on initially, but it immediately sets into skin. I wish this had a higher spf, and I also wished it was more moisturizing. This and the Neutrogena healthy skin anti-wrinkle cream definitely help with my melasma and keep my face fresh.

This is a great anti-wrinkle cream and it does wonders for my melasma. I have some melasma above my lip and on my forehead and it fades within a week of using this cream consistently. I can tell the next day whenever I use this cream because my skin looks so dewy and fresh, not like the other retinol creams which leave me feeling dry and red. My only complaint is the packaging - as I near the end of the tube it becomes hard to squeeze out and the metal can start to deteriorate and break open if squeezed too much.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

I love this sunscreen because it is gentle on the skin, doesn't take much to blend, and has a pleasant scent. Most importantly I know it does a great job at keeping my skin protected and it doesn't burn or sting my eyes. I love that it is so easy to apply and isn't too runny.
My skin is clean feeling, very smooth, and my sun spots are starting to fade after using this product for a few weeks. The only drawback is the price, HOWEVER I found an at home facial that kate sommerville does on youtube involving brewers yeast, avocado, flax meal and yogurt that works just as well as this expensive product. Luckily I only bought the trial size but it has lasted me about 3 months because you only need a dime sized amount or less to get results. It is a green goopy product that has an herbal/organic smell. It will burn while it is on, but you are only supposed to leave it on half a minute. I have a rosy (not red) glow after I step out of the shower. I would recommend looking at the video of her facial on youtube - it is an amateur video by some sort of beauty website. The facial is all natural that she does, and is very effective!
This shampoo is not good if you have really long hair. It doesn't lather well, and really doesn't thicken all that well either. It left my fine, straight hair unmanageable after getting out of the shower. Also, "Ojon oil" is really just palm oil with a fancy name.
So soft, easy to clean (mild soap product - little bit- warm water, lay flat and finished!) dense and flexible. I have had mine for about 3 years and have since bought most of their other brushes from Walgreens. Durable, gets the job done, and a great all around high quality product!
