Hair -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Clean & Go Dry Shampoo

I was excited to try this because I love dry shampoos. I usually use Batiste, but I thought I would pick this up over the weekend. I was disappointed with the texture this gave to my hair. It feels somewhat stiff or sticky, like I put hairspray in it. When I was brushing my hair after applying it, as the directions said to do, my boar bristle brush had more trouble getting through my hair than it ever has before. It feels like it made my hair tangly. I ended up putting my hair up so I wouldn't make any knots. I also don't like the smell. It smells kind of like that Baby Soft perfume they sell, I can't remember the brand. I'm sensitive to certain smells and this gave me a headache. It's also more than twice what I pay for Batiste. Also, the cashier warned me that people have been returning this because of the bottle malfunctioning. That didn't happen to me, but I only used it once. On the positive side, this doesn't really leave any white residue, unlike Batiste. I would not repurchase and I will probably return this for store credit.
Nice matte eye shadows are hard to find, and cheap ones are even harder. I've been using some from Urban Decay, but this works wonderfully and is only $4. I put it in the crease and use Wet n Wild's Brulee on my lid I would definitely repurchase.

I've been loving matte eyeshadows lately. This is a great light matte, especially for the price. I use it on my lid and put Urban Decay's Buck or Revlon's Rich Sable in my crease.Works friggin great
This is a beautiful red for the price. It came out fairly dark on me because my hair was a dark brown before I dyed it. It did leave my hair in pretty bad condition though. I had been using demi permanent color for awhile and forgot how tangled my hair gets with box color. It would be VERY hard to comb through for the first three weeks every time I showered.
I've been wanting this for a long time, but haven't bought it because of the price. I saw it on allcosmeticswholesale last week and bought it though, because they had a depotted version for $18.99. It was well worth the wait and instantly brightens up my complexion.
This highlighter looks great on my fair skin. I use it when I want a matte finish. It's a great price and I would definitely repurchase. I bought it on cherryculture when they had a twenty percent off sale because no stores around where I live sell NYX.
This is definitely my favorite elf product! I've regretted a lot of the stuff I've bought from them, but this is a great cream highlighter. I have the Boots highlighter, which was $15 and I get a lot more use out of this. I use the white shade to highlight my inner corner, the pinks on my cheeks and the tan on my forehead and on the bridge of my nose.
This is a nice facial sunblock for a low price. I bought it and the serum when Sally's had the Beyond Belief line on sale for two for $10 a few months ago. It goes on smooth, doesn't leave a white cast and hasn't made me break out. I only gave it a four because I wish it had a higher SPF.

I apply this at night with vitamin e oil and alba's un-petroleum gel. It helps minimize my pores and evens out my complexion. I would definitely repurchase this, it's a great serum at a low price!

This is a great product! I put it on before I go to bed along with some vitamin e oil and my skin looks flawless the next morning. I had been using the Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Mask, which is great, but this gives me better results for a third of the price. I will definitely be repurchasing.
This gives pretty coverage when applied wet, and sheer coverage when dry. I like it, but I still usually find myself reaching for my liquid foundations. I don't think I would buy this again.
I got one of these earlier this week because they were half off at a local salon. They didn't ask me what level I wanted, so I'm not sure what they gave me. I am very fair skinned and I was hoping for a darker result. It took awhile to develop, I felt like I didn't notice a difference after six hours and it wasn't til the next day I could see any difference. The glow was really light, kind of like Kristen Bell when she has a tan. A friend of mine had gotten the tan where an esthetician applies it instead of a machine and she had a deeper tan, more like Jennifer Aniston, which is what I was hoping for. I'm doing what one of the other reviewers suggested and have been putting on lotion daily and that is keeping it from fading in a blotchy way. This turned the bottoms of my hands and feet orange even though I put on a lot of the lotion. It also stung a little bit when the machine was spraying it on. I don't think I would try this again because it's still pretty expensive, but I might try the another spray tan.

This gave me whiteheads when I used it as a moisturizer on my face. Works well to moisturize my body, though. My favorite use of it is as a hair treatment. I melt a bit in the microwave and massage it into my scalp and hair and wash it out after twenty minutes. I do it at night so that I'll still be able to shampoo in the morning so it doesn't look oily. I prefer this to olive oil on my hair. I bought a tub two years ago and still have plenty left. I love the smell too.
This is on a par with Mario Badescu's Glycolic Foaming Cleanser for me and is cheaper. It doesn't dry my skin out as much as the lotion, so I could use it more if I wanted to. Keeps my skin clean and minimizes pores.

I pick up a few of these whenever T.J. Maxx has a sale on them. I use it a few times a week before I put on my moisturizer at night. I use acne.org's treatment and this because it's cheaper than what they sell on the website.
