Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Selsun Blue - Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Selson Blue works well (I wont use the menthol formula, though) however I cannot use it on a regular basis because of the sulfur. Your head will smell like poop after washing and other people around you can easily smell it, too. It even stinks up my pillowcase.
Try it if you are tired of sickly sweet fragrances. I just think mature, classy woman when I smell it, not old lady. It's a good winter fragrance. Receive lots of compliments when I wear it.
I picked this powder based on Paula Begoun's review (Below) & I'm glad because I love it! It goes on nice & smooth (Use a brush) with good coverage & hides some redness from acne etc... In my opinion the coverage & texture is nice enough to be used as a powder foundation if you like those. I don't apply powder with puffs so that went right in the trash & I like the mirror separate from the powder as it stays clean. PB Review*This talc-based pressed powder goes on exceptionally smooth and blends perfectly, imparting a soft matte finish best for normal to oily skin due to its super-absorbent ingredients. (It's worth noting that while the finish is a soft matte, it does contain tiny shimmer particles that are noticeable in the daylight.) It controls shine without looking chalky or dry and provides medium coverage in flattering shades suitable for fair to medium-dark skin tones. All that plus a great price and broad-spectrum sun protection from pure titanium dioxide! Although we don’t advocate relying solely on a pressed powder for sun protection because most people don’t apply powder liberally enough, which is essential when applying sunscreen, when paired with a foundation with sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater this is a brilliant option. Well done, Maybelline! Oh, one more thing: The anti-aging claim is tied to the goji berry extract that’s present. Listed by its Latin name Lychium barbarum, there is no proof that goji berry will rewind anyone’s age, not to mention that the antioxidants won’t remain stable in a product like this. This powder’s real anti-aging superstar is the sunscreen!*
If you are counting on this product to provide sun protection find something else, it doesn't contain the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone (also known as butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane), ecamsule, or Tinosorb. Why do they even label it as SPF 30? Fair to light matched my skin nicely but I dont like the shine particles. I definitely would not purchase this again as without suncreen it is useless to me.
I like this shampoo & will probably switch from what I have been using. My hair is slightly thick, coarse textured. It's not amazing but it gets my hair clean without problems. I have not had any issues with buildup, scalp/body acne from using this product (For a change). Price is great for the amount you get, smells nice & doesn't linger.
Liquid -Cover Girl - CG Smoothers All Day Hydrating Makeup

Usually I wear Paula Begoun's Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 15 which I love. I wanted an inexpensive backup foundation so I grabbed CG Smoothers (Classic Ivory). I really like this foundation. It provides light to medium coverage, very easy to blend & holds up fine with a light dusting of powder on my combo skin. If this foundation included SPF 15 sunscreen I'd probably stop buying Paula's foundation.
Shampoo -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture cream lather shampoo

Great shampoo you can pick up at the drugstore. This is not for people with fine hair. I have thick, coarsed textured hair & this shampoo leaves it soft & very manageable. I dont need to use conditioner afterwards if I dont feel like it, It does a great job on it's own. This is a conditioning shampoo so it can buildup. Every few washes use Neutrogena Anti Residue shampoo or Suave Daily Clarifying to keep shampoo/conditioner/styling product buildup at bay. Once a month you can also mix a tiny bit of baking soda with shampoo in your palm & wash as usual. Condition well afterwards. Baking soda will really remove buildup.
Yuck! Believe me (& most everyone else) when I say stay away from this stuff. Terrible.
I use this on my legs, upper lip, & bikini area. Does it get rid of every single hair? No, but find me one cream hair remover that does. Like most cream hair removers, it easily removes fine hair but will leave behind some coarser hairs. Still, it only takes a second to shave the hairs the cream didnt dissolve. Be sure you spot test before using it. Overall I really like it.
I use this twice a week as a mask. It helps with my oily skin & breakouts. Magnesium hydroxide-The active ingredient, is an absorbent and has antibacterial properties for skin. You can put a very thin layer on your face prior to applying your makeup to keep your face shine free. It's cheap & works great, what else could you ask for?
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! Totally agree with the person who said people must not be using this stuff properly. This *styling cream* should be used prior to blowing out, flat ironing or curling your hair. Apply it to your towel dried hair & combine it with heat & you WILL get smooth, soft, frizz free hair. My hair looks & feels amazing when I use this cream before hitting my hair up with my Sedu or blowing my hair out.
Eyeliner -Paula's Choice - Constant Color Gel Eyeliner in Nightfall

Absolutely excellent! I use the color Nightfall which is black with a very, very subtle plum undertone. It is easy to apply (I use Paula's eyeliner brush-Also excellent) & it lasts all day without smudging or flaking. I have oily eyelids & needed an eyeliner that lasts-this product definitely delivers.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom EDT

I just love this fragrance, It wears so lovely on me. Sometimes I forget I put it on, wonder what smells so good, then realize it's me.
HORRIBLE! Absolutely poor excuse of a so-called conditioner. Man, as soon as I put it in my hair I knew I had made a mistake purchasing this. My hair didnt feel soft like it usually does when applying my conditioner. Worst part was when I tried to brush it- Good lord my hair was a tangled, knotted mess. I never have problems with tangles etc. after washing/conditioning my hair. Spare yourself & save your money!! This product definitely needs to be discontinued.
Skincare - Body -Paula's Choice - Silk Mist Dry Oil Spray

I got a sample of this when I placed an order. This product absorbs well and leaves my skin very soft. The problem? Like others have mentioned, the scent. It has a vanilla-chemical type scent which I dont like at all. If this were fragrance free I would definately purchase it.
