Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

It felt good and cold when rolling it on, but it did not do anything.
Ughhh I bought this because it is "sulfate, paraben free" supposedly meaning not harsh on your hair. Well my hair was a tangled, dry mess after using this(the bright green one), my hair didn't smell. The only positive is the bottle is nice to look at. And it's expensive, although I got it during Walgreen's buy one get one sale. Seriously one of the worst shampoo and cnd I ever used.
LOVE this stuff. Use it everytime I wash my hair I have very thick, somewhat dry hair. It would be almost impossible to comb my hair without putting this in first. My hair really does turn to silk once I apply this. It also does not make my hair greasey or weigh it down which is a common problem for me and leave in conditioners. The smell is wonderful. I have long hair and a bottle lasts forever. They stopped carrying it at a lot of stores and me and my best friend started freaking out because we both use it religiously(I first tried it at her place). I seriously went to 5 different stores and thought I lost all hope and it was discontinued til I found it at a wal mart far away. I bought six bottles! Of course I gave 3 to my best friend :)
I used Great Lash for a while, but this one is amazing! It gives me very thick, glam lashes. Sometimes it does get a little clumpy but you have to apply it just right. Also, it's weird but this has a smell to it. Not that I go around smelling mascaras(lol) but you I am sure you girls know how mascara smells(gross!), but this one smells like roses!
I been using this for about a year now. My face is normal, with slight breakouts from time to time. Being young (22) and still getting pimples, I am starting to become cautious about wrinkles as well. I never used much moisturizer on my face until the past couple years and found this one to be just perfect. It balances and evens out my skin, and it looks better when I put it on and wake up in the morning. Has a natural glow to it. I also love how it contains tomatoes, a natural antioxidant. This is a great product, smells and feels wonderful with top quality ingredients(the price is kinda high but you are paying for wonderful ingredients) An excellent, light moisturizer.
Conditioner -Pantene - Nature Fusion Moisture Balance

LOOOOVE this stuff!! It makes my hair so soft, manageable, shiny, and bouncy! I can run my fingers through my hair it's that healthy. My boyfriend constantly smells my hair, lol it's so cute. I can't blame him, the smell is so amazing. I usually get bored using the same shampoo and cond, but I been using this for 3 months now. I just don't even want to try anything else! I use this with Pantene's smoothing serum, a drop or two when my hair's wet and my hair looks so much healthier.
Cleansers -AcneFree - 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser
Amoravy 5/5/2008 5:14:00 AM
I have been using this product since it came out a few years ago and everytime Id switch just out of boredom and thinking maybe I am done getting pimples, I break out and go back. I went to the derm for years when I was younger and was given benzoyl peroxide face wash which is what this contains. Theres a 2.5% in the white bottle and 10%(or maybe 5%?) in the orange for severe acne, I use the white, its enough. Although the kit is nice, I prefer to just buy the facewash. It finally came out for individual sale. I hated the toner and hardly needed the lotion. Nice not having to spend 18 dollars on the whole kit when I can get the facewash for 6 now. Its an amazing product. I now have 3 people who use it religiously. Buy it, end of story.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Extra Strength Hair Color Remover - Color Oops
Amoravy 4/17/2008 1:28:00 AM
WOWZA!!! So I was super scared to use this even after all the excellent reviews I read on it...this is what my hair history is like: I have been dying my hair since I was like 13 and have had every color:Red, blonde, black, blue(Oh geeze). The past 3 years I have been dying it dark colors from purplish black to most recently the past year the blackest black you can imagine. I decided that I was over this dramatic color and wanted to get back to my natural roots(I didnt even know what my hair color is anymore). I was pretty skeptical because of all the terrible color changing experiences I have had like a green tint to a dark color or turning my hair orange with brown roots, I have had it all! I thought this was too good to be true reading all these reviews but I decided to try it because many people seem to have had the same coloring experiences and black hair like me. Last time I lightened my hair to a medium brown was a little over a year ago. I had to spend over 250 dollars to bleach my hair from black to lighten it taking 6 hours all the while of course it dries it out and is very damaging. It was too good to be true because I wouldnt ever think a product at CVS that cost 13 dollars and takes 20 minutes would work so well, even better than at the salon!! My hair came out FABULOUS! I havent seen my natural hair color in years and I love it! It's a light golden brown I found out, lol. Also, it even feels healthier and softer because there is no bleach or ammonia(and theres no deposited color on my hair weighing it down), you can even color your hair the same day! What a waste of money at the salons I have spent in the past to torture my hair when I could have done this at home for much much much cheaper. It's like the salons dont want you to know this secret and tell you"Oh black hair is impossible to lift". Can't tell you how many times I have heard that. LIES!!! I definately learned my lesson. I did have to use 2 boxes. The first time my hair didnt turn crazy or orange or anything, its just I have long thick hair and could still see a TINY bit of black left underneath some layers. I dont care, for a total for 26 dollars it is totally worth it and I feel like a new woman! Yes the smell is very chemical like, reminds me of when my mother permed her hair back in the day but it is very tolerable. Plus, what kind of scent are you expecting from a chemical that removes hair color anyways? Roses? Um, no! Now I wont have to dye my roots every month and can let it keep growing. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Conditioner -Wen by Chaz Dean - Tea Tree Oil Cleansing Conditioner

So my mother told me about this product and how much she loved it. I wanted to try it so she sent me a collection off the QVC channel and was very excited to try it. I wanted it to be as good as it sounds, but I was not impressed at all. I followed the directions on the bottle and after a couple weeks my hair was flat, stringy, and greasey. Even when I got my haircut my stylist was asking what I was using in my hair because there was so much residue and build up. I couldnt run my fingers through my hair anymore! Not only were my results terrible, but it is crazy how much I have to use for the price! After a few uses it was already halfway gone in the bottle. I ended up selling it on Ebay. It may be better for ethnic/coarse/curly hair but not for my normal, thick shoulder length hair.Will stick to my loreal vive nutri-gloss shampoo and conditioner, that stuff is amazing. The ratings prove it.
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion
Amoravy 12/20/2007 10:32:00 PM
I am now on my 9th(?) bottle of this lotion. It smells amazing(I love coconut, some people dont). It gives me a great glow to my skin and I swear...it erased my stretch marks almost completely. I use it everyday when I get outta the shower and also to take off my eye makeup. It is VERY cheap, and I will never switch lotions. The only con is how big the bottle is. The more the better but it's hard for me to transport it anywhere.
Styling Products -Dove - Intense Frizz Control Anti-Frizz Cream
Amoravy 12/20/2007 10:21:00 PM
This is an excellent product! I think it depends on how much your hair is actually frizzy. It says EXTREME frizz but I think it is moderate, which is what my hair needs. Its thick, long, and gets a little frizzy, but this stuff makes my hair shiny, VERY soft, and more of a put together, polished look without weighing it down. It does not even feel like anything is in your hair. I use to use John Frieda's Frizz Ease serum, but this replaced it. My hair smells great and feels wonderful for half the price. It is like a leave- in conditioner. If you have very unmanageable hair, besides making it soft, this product is probably too light. Tip: I put about 3 pumps in my past shoulder length hair when it is wet after a shower, and then blow dry. I don't even need to use a straightner after!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - VIVE PRO Nutri Gloss Med-Long hair DAMAGED

I LOOOOOOOVE this product! I am always looking for better shampoos and cond out in the market, and when I find one I like, I usually have to switch to another because my hair gets heavy and coarse after a while. However, I have been using this for 4 months straight and I doubt I will stop! My hair is super shiny and healthy looking. My hair is always bouncy, even at the end of the day. Not to mention the smell is fantastic as well. My hair has been dyed and is very thick and gets greasy roots. This product is simply amazing! I have gotten a few of my friends to buy it after using mine!
