Styling Products -Suave - Soft & Smooth Detangling Spray in Twirlin' Strawberry

Yeah, I'm 38 and use a product meant for kids! It's Suave Kids Soft & Smooth Detangling Spray in the Twirlin' Strawberry scent! I'm a sucker for strawberry so when I saw this at Kroger I grabbed it. Very inexpensive and works perfectly. Makes hair feel great. The spray bottle is good. The scent fades out of your hair after a while, so the strong strawberryness is enjoyable. There's a fact and a question on the back of the bottle. It says: "Did You Know? There are five different types of ballerina tutus. Many ballerinas wear tutus when they twirl and dance. Can you twirl like a ballerina?" My answers are as follows: no, duh, and kind of. LOL. In short, this is a good product and I would recommend it and probably purchase it again. :-)
Treatments -TRESemme - Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Spray

I hated this. Made my hair sticky and dull, both times I used it. Left a gummy film on my hair. YUK. Threw it away. Also, the formula was way too thick to spray evenly out of the bottle. I had to spray it in my hands then work it through my hair. Will never repurchase.
Very nice red that appears dark in bottle but lightens up a bit after application. I love it. Blood red. Two coats is perfect.
This is a great tomato red. Applies nicely and dries fast even without SV. Good product. Color looks different in different lighting situations. Pretty.

I like this. Makes my hair smooth and adds more shine. Detangles nicely. I mainly use it on dry and and I think it's a good product. Good ponytail refresher.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Starbucks - Napkins

I have used these and they work beautifully, but I prefer white tissue paper. But yes, Starbucks napkins you grab on the way out blot oil quite well. Know what? Taco Bell napkins work too. Any brown paper napkin I think. Very useful to have in your car or purse, but again, tissue paper is my HG.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

Too dark and gets darker as day goes on if I apply it straight from the tube. Orangey toned. Greasy too. It gets better and lightens up when mixed with another moisturizer ( current fav is Embryolisse lait creme concentre), but in my mind kinda makes this product pointless. I probably will not repurchase this item.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Tissue Paper-white

HOLY GRAIL BLOTTING PRODUCT! I will never ever again purchase a brand name blotting sheet when plain, white generic tissue paper works so well. You can pretty much find it in any store. My package contains 30 sheets at 20 inches x 20 inches. HUGE amounts for $1. If you are wrapping gifts you can go through all that pretty quick, but if you're using it on your face, it'll last quite a while. It is just like the disposable seat covers in a ladies restroom-it's just tissue paper. Blots oil and does not rub makeup brilliantly. You can cut it to any size you want. I like one sheet cut into four, so I can blot more of my face at once. They can be pre cut and stashed in a ziploc bag for convenience. I cannot believe I didn't use this sooner. As much as I love the blue Clean & Clear, and even the generic Kroger version, I can definitely say I will never buy those again when plain white generic tissue paper works just as well. Love it! I would also just use plain white. Probably the colored versions won't transfer color onto your face, but it's not worth finding out. Just use white and keep it easy.
The most gorgeous red glitter polish. The glitter is fine and the polish is a nice deep pure red. It is as pretty as a pair of the Ruby Slippers.
I got a hot pink color, slanted tip. Expensive but well worth it. Comes with a plastic tube for storage. Easily the best tweezers I have ever had. PERFECT.
I cannot say how much I love this pedi tool! Where can I start? It's a rotary "sanding" tool for your feet, and so very easy to use. It comes with a metal round rough plate for serious callous removal, and another attachment for finishing. I prefer the finishing head. I put my own "spin" on it, pun intended. The sandpaper it comes with is great, but I wanted something a bit rougher, so I purchased some 100 grit sandpaper, cut a disc to fit and stuck it to the head that attaches to the tool with a rolled up piece of duct tape. Presto, a rougher buffer and perfect for me. It comes with 12 fine sandpaper refills, and don't get me wrong, they work wonderfully. If you choose to not DIY they are perfect. You can replace them with every use or wash, rinse and dry and use until it no longer meets your needs. If you use your own sandpaper, you can change it after every use because sandpaper it very inexpensive. My 100 grit sheet was 52 cents for a whole sheet. The tool won't spin if you press your skin too hard, it is a safety feature, which is good because then you don't get a friction burn. It has two speeds, slow and faster. The device takes 4 AA batteries and has no cord. I found mine at CVS and seriously don' t know how I lived before I had it. Wait, yes I do- I sweated over manually buffing, and it was a pain. Actually, this tool makes a pedi fun and it's mesmerizing and addicting to use. My feet are extremely smooth, but WARNING- they may get so smooth that when you step into the tub BE CAREFUL- your foot has lost " grip" and could slip. Nobody wants to fall in the tub. It happened to me, I slipped but caught myself, scared myself, and am careful from now on if I sanded that day to step wisely on the tub floor. Hold on and everything will be fine. The only mess is "dust" aka dry skin, ewww, but it's all part of the process. Needless to say, I highly recommend this product and hopefully I'll never have to replace it, but I certainly would if I had to. I believe it was under $20.
These are great! I was pleasantly surprised that they completely removed all of my MAC Splashproof Lash mascara. Very good, inexpensive. I use them before I take my nightly shower and wash my face to remove my makeup.

Wonderful lotion. Very light and not sticky at all. I even use it on my face, and in my hair. It's lovely. Nicely inexpensive no matter what size you buy! Will purchase again.

This is the best brow color EVER! Even though it has shimmer it works beautifully for my brows. Will absolutely purchase again. The color doesn't darken or change once applied. Love it.

This is an absolutely wonderful product. So luxurious for a drugstore item. I love it. I got a small sample size stacked with a larger product I was purchasing and I most certainly will buy the full size when the little one is gone.
