Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - Smooth Straight & Silky Styling Mist
angellove1705 2/25/2012 5:32:00 PM
This is my first hair product I have tried from Victoria's Secret. I was really excited being their body products are amazing. This fell really short for me. I loved the clear packaging so I could tell how much was used but that was about it besides the scent. This did leave a pleasant scent behind which was a nice bonus. This left my hair kind of greasy and weighed down. I found I had to wash my hair sooner then I normally would considering I had done a full blow out and flat iron. I only used this before blow drying and it left my hair greasy enough that I am glad I didn't use it before flat ironing my hair. I would not try this again.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Hawaii Coconut
angellove1705 2/25/2012 5:27:00 PM
I got a sample of this and it is so fun and beachy. I find most coconut scents are a little too strong, but this is such a great blend. I love this scent for when the weather is nice and warm. It defintely is a beachy scent and reminds me of fun, sunny days. This is of course a great moisturizing lotion being it is from Bath and Body Works. The packaging is nice. I find I can turn this upside down in a glass and almost all slides to the bottom. I also can easily cut the bottle open to get the last of the lotion out. This is one I will defintely be buying again.
I got a sample bottle of this and really liked it. The scent is really pretty and the lotion itself sunk in so quickly. I used it in the dead of winter and this did a pretty good job moisturizing quickly. I do not think it lasted more then a few hours though so I think this would be the best when I only need light moisturizing. For the most part, this is a pretty good lotion.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Country Chic
angellove1705 2/9/2012 11:43:00 AM
I got a sample bottle of this when BBW was doing a promotion. I love the formula of the lotion itself. BBW lotions always do a good job of leaving my skin soft, smooth and moisturized. The scent of Country Chic is pretty, but I find it a little strong to wear. I could only handle using a little bit of this lotion or it was just too overwhelming. For that reason I have lowered the rating on it. The packaging is great. For the most part the lotion drains to the lid when turned upside and if it does not the bottle is really easy to cut open and scoop the rest out.
I love the scent of this. It is not overly sexy as you would think with the name. I find it sweet and girly. I really cannot say enough good things about the amazing scent of this bath bomb. The color it leaves is a pretty pink. I was surprised that this does leave my skin feeling soft and still scented. The scent sticking around was a nice surprise. I always find myself relaxed after using this. I do find this is a little overpriced though and for that reason I always break it in half. It takes away from the cute look of it, but I find this helps to save a little on the cost of the bath bomb.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Daily Skin Balance Skin-Fortifying Body Lotion
angellove1705 2/3/2012 11:34:00 PM
I have been in love with the scent of this lotion. Usually Eucerin is not known for scent and I find that disappointing. I was so happy when I found this and the scent is amazing. I find the smell of this kind of expensive and not what I think of for a drugstore lotion. The lotion itself is a weird texture, but I think for that reason it sinks in very quickly. There was only one place I think that was dry too soon were my elbows, but for the most part this was great at leaving me feeling soft. The packaging is not pretty, but I found it was really easy to turn this bottle upside down and get all of the lotion out of the bottle. Altogether this is a great product for me and I will continue to use it.
Moisturizers -Burt's Bees - Radiance SPF 15 Day Lotion
angellove1705 2/3/2012 11:30:00 PM
I will be honest that there is not a single Burt's Bees product that I like so I was not thinking I would like this to begin with. I was a little surprised though. The scent is not too bad and it is nice that it has a scent. Most Burt's Bees products I think have a funny smell to them. This lotion is very thin and I found I did not need much to moisturize my skin which I found really nice. It also sunk in really quickly. My problem with it was that it left me with breakouts that days later I am still dealing with. I would have given if a better rating had the breakouts not shown up.
Skincare - Face -Biore - Makeup Removing Towelettes
angellove1705 2/3/2012 6:31:00 PM
These are disappointing. They have a nice smell upon opening. The wipes are think a little small and kind of dry. I usually have to use two to get all of my makeup off. My biggest complaint is that this makes my skin feel icky. I always feel like it leaves something behind on my skin that leaves a film on it. I also hate how my skin stings after this. My eyes sting, but even my skin just feels a small sting and I do not like that. This does take off makeup though, although not very well. Not what I expect from Biore.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
angellove1705 1/28/2012 3:08:00 PM
I got a sample of this with the matching shampoo. This stuff is horrible. The shampoo was not very good, but this is just nasty. The scent of this is so disgusting and I actually thought it was spoiled. The worse part of this is that this conditioner did nothing. Absolutely nothing. I actually had to use another conditioner on top of this because this provided such little moisture. A horrible example of bad drugstore hair products.
Shampoo -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo
angellove1705 1/28/2012 2:55:00 PM
I got a sample of this with the matching conditioner. I am always kind of divided by Tresemme products. I love they are inexpensive and our supposed to be salon quality although I usually find they are not. This shampoo is alright. I found the scent nice. I do not think the claim of lower sulfates proves true low. This still has such a lather that stripped my normally greasy hair. I cannot imagine how dry my hair would have been if it was dry. A so so product in a pinch, but not a buy for me.
Lotions/ Creams -J. R. Watkins - Mango Shea Butter
angellove1705 1/21/2012 8:29:00 PM
I got a sample of this and have been wowed. Although I am not a big fan of the scent - I mostly smell the shea and not the mango. The sample size of this seemed pretty small, but this is such a concentrated product that I was able to get a ton of use out of it. I was able to smear some of this into my hands and it made them so smooth and silky. The best part was even after washing my hands I could still feel this on my hands almost like a thin glove. Not many lotions can leave my hands soft even after I have washed my hands. This is a great product and I will be purchasing it.
Fragrances -Avon - Blushing Temptations Sparkling Plum Blossom
angellove1705 1/19/2012 3:37:00 PM
I got a sample of this to try. The scent from the start is fresh and fruity. I actually found this smelled very nice. I found it very girly, but classic at the same time. I think this smells a little bit more expensive then it really is. The downside is that it has no lasting power. I applied this and within a little bit of time it was gone. I would love if this could last longer. I found myself drawn to it and I keep grabbing the sample for a sniff. The downside of sniffing it so much is I feel like it has a little bit of a yucky after smell.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Color Quick Nail Color Pen - Sand Shimmer
angellove1705 1/17/2012 5:51:00 PM
I got this on a whim. The idea is great, but the product itself had some good and bad parts. The good is that this does work somewhat in applying the polish. My polish was pretty simple to apply because I did not have to smooth it against the polish bottle. I found it was extremely easy to just click the back of the pen and smooth it on.The polish also dried pretty quickly. The downside was that the brush is a little wide so some spots my polish went on a little messy. I think if the brush was improved that it would have a lot in applying it better. This went on a little streaky and I am not sure if it is the polish or the brush. The shade itself is ok. It is kind of just "eh" and nothing special. I think I would purchase the pen itself, but not in this shade.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Full Repair Full Body Conditioner
angellove1705 1/17/2012 5:39:00 PM
I got a sample of this with the matching shampoo. I found they were actually pretty good and not what I expect from drugstore hair products. The scent is pretty and smells more expensive then it is. This left my hair smooth and silky and not weighed down. I think together with the matching shampoo this is pretty good and a good dtrugstore product to choose.
I got a sample of this and the matching conditioner. I am not fond of drugstore hair products, but I found this to be pretty good. This has an amazing scent that smells more expensive then it is. I found I did not need very much of this to get my hair feeling clean and surprisingly it did not dry my hair out. Together with the conditioner this left my hair soft and smooth. I would defintely think about purchasing this.
