This stuff is amazing, my mom has super frizzy poofy hair that is naturally a mess unless you straighten it to tame it. But this stuff made a huge difference, it drastically cut down the frizz and defined her hair into curls rather than a bunch of poof. It is super cheap under $4 and it smells like grape lollipops so overall it was a very good investment.
I used to like these nail polishes, now I hate them. I find most of them to be too thick, and goopy. The thickness causes many of the colors to streak. They do last, due to the thick formula. They also have a great color selection, so it's a shame that I just can't stand them.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Sunless Tanning Creme - Deep Dark
haleyhay 9/6/2009 12:23:00 AM
Overall this is a really good self tanner, it is really cheap, about $6 I think. It gives you a really dark tan really really quick. It doesn't last very long though, you have to reapply it at least once a week to maintain it. Since it is so dark if you have really pale skin like me then the first time you use it, it can get pretty streaky if your not careful. To prevent it exfoliate all over and apply moisturizer the night before. The day you apply it moisturize about 20 minutes before and then apply it. It doesn't stink too bad like a lot of tanners, it smells a bit like soap at first but after time it turns and smells like classic self tanner. Overall I like it a lot because it gets you so dark so fast.
This is a great moisturizer I have very dry and sensitive skin I tried this one in August and when I finished it up I decided to get the Hydra Quench Rich which actually suites my skin better but for someone with a normal to dry skin this is great. They are really expensive but if you have troubled skin it is really worth it.
Toners -Clarins - Extra Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry/Sensitive Skin

I really like this toner used along with the cream cleanser. It is soothing and leaves my dry sensitive skin feeling clean and refreshed and not a tad dry. It has a nice light scent. It is expensive but for me it is worth it. Though I am not a fan of this bottles packaging the spout allows too much toner to come out at once so if you were to drop it a lot could come out quite easily.
Cleansers -Clarins - Extra-Comfort Cleansing Cream

I am so happy with this cleanser I have super dry skin that is sore tight and flakey. My skin flakes when I do not use this cleanser along with the rest of the system, I love it, it completely saved my skin. It is really expensive but for me it is worth it, though it probably won't be worth the money for someone with naturally decent skin.
This is a good conditioner, I used it a couple of years ago when I had bleached highlights in my hair and it managed to keep my soft. It also smells amazing.
Shampoo -Dove - Advanced Color Care for Lightened or Highlighted Hair

This is a good shampoo, I used it a couple of years ago when I had bleached highlights in my hair. It kept my hair pretty soft. But the best thing about this stuff is the smell, it smells amazing.
Cleansers -Phisoderm - pH2O daily replenishing wash
haleyhay 7/27/2009 1:38:00 PM
This is a good gentle face wash. It will not work for acne, but if you have no problems with that then this is a great cleanser especially if you have sensitive skin.
This scrub is okay, it does help clear up your blackheads, but I don't find that it helps for much else besides that. There are many better products that clear up blackheads just as well that also clear up other things besides blackheads. I like Clearasil daily face wash the best.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner
haleyhay 7/26/2009 11:34:00 PM
Overall it is a good eyeliner, the applicator is way too stiff. I have had to work it a bit to help soften it a little. The liquid is a bit thin. I have bad allergies usually with watery eyes and that never causes the liner to run but sweating makes it run and transfer pretty bad. Overall it is okay, it is some of the cheapest waterproof liquid liner available so it's okay.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips - Custom Bronzer Blush and Eye Shadow
haleyhay 7/26/2009 11:29:00 PM
I have this in Malibu strip and I really like it. It has pinkish tones to it and I love using it as an eyeshadow. It is super shimmery and pretty. It looks a lot like the Bobby Brown Shimmer Brick which is uber expensive. Although Physicians Formula is a bit expensive for drugstore products, I really do like them and I have found very few products of theirs that I do not like.
I really like this powder, many translucent powders say they are translucent but seem to leave behind some white. This doesn't have any color to it but it sets my makeup very well so it doesn't slide off. I also love it because it doesn't have any fall out like many powders do. I bought this at Walgreens for about $3.50 on clearance so I am not sure if it is being discontinued or Walgreens is just not going to sell it anymore. All in all it is a really good setting powder, and I really like it.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Bronze Gems Matte and Bright Bronzer in Bronzer
haleyhay 7/26/2009 11:17:00 PM
I bought this on clearance at Walgreens for like $3.50, so I am not sure if they are completely discontinuing it or Walgreens is just not going to carry it anymore. But I really love it, if I could find this somewhere else at regular price I would buy it. This is a great bronzer that is not a bit orange, but it is also not too brown so it won't make you look dirty. I also love how they have a little bit of highlighters on the side, they are nice too, not too shimmery. I really love it and I hope I will be able to be able to find it again.
This is a decent self tanner, but it's not for me. It is way too gradual for me, but I suppose for some it might be great. It won't turn you orangey, my mom has a problem with that and it didn't turn her orange. I am naturally very light, with very yellow undertones and this just didn't do too much for me, I like my skin to be very dark.
