I went in looking for one of the v05 clarifying shampoos. My ends were crunchy after a coconut oil treatment and my trusty Terax Latte didn't work. I couldn't find the kiwi lime in the store or the tea vanilla mint, so I picked this up hoping it would get the job done. Not only did this clarify my hair in one wash, the smell is luscious and it is incredibly moisturizing. All the build up on my hair is gone without feeling stripped. I usually use a leave in conditioner but I was able to skip it. And, obviously, it's dirt cheap. Never buying Terax again.
I got this free from BzzAgent. I find the vibrating thing on the end to be very gimmicky and ineffective, but worst of all, this cream irritated my eyes. This is going in the trash.
I picked this up on a whim since it was so cheap and I was running out of my usual GoW Heather Blossom cleanser. I am really surprised with how much I like this soap. It is runny, as other reviewers have mentioned, but I don't feel like I have to use any more cleanser than I normally would. It effectively removes sunscreen and eye makeup, and so far, I find that it is gentle and non-irritating to my skin.
Bought this because it's sls free and available at the drugstore. It does an okay job at cleaning my hair, but it's too drying. I prefer their coconut milk shampoo. The price is reasonable if you can find it on sale.
Such a great np for fall! I get tons of compliments on this color. I just bought one for my mom, too.
Sheer Red is a red lipstick that anyone can wear. The color is buildable. If you want a really sheer application, use lipbalm first. For a semi-translucent look, use a lip brush. For full impact, apply the lipstick directly to your lips without balm or brush. It also looks great with a dab of gloss over it to give it more shine. As other reviewers have stated, it doesn't turn fuschia on your lips (I do have that problem with Ruby). On my lips, the color is a true blue-red, not at all brick colored like it looks. Definitely worth a try, especially at this price.
gorgeous coral, very wearable because it's not too bright. it's a great summer pedicure color if you're looking for a little pop of color but nothing too crazy.

Red with bright pink/coral undertones. I have cool-toned skin and I only like the way this looks in the summer when I have a bit of color. It's a very wearable red if you don't tend to wear reds, and the lasting power is great. On me it kind of fades to a stain that I put chapstick over during the day. It has a little bit of shimmer, but nothing obvious, just makes it easier to wear.

the color is okay but I hate the formula. It doesn't apply as easily as other gel/creme eyeliners and doesn't wear well. I ended up tossing it.
I love the tube technology! Finally a mascara that doesn't flake off all day or give me raccoon eyes. No, it's not great a volumizing or lengthening, but everything else smudges too much on me. It's very easy to remove with warm water at the end of the day.
This is my favorite yankee candle scent. I like the herb/citrusy smell. It's a less obvious scent than some of their food scents, which I find a bit too overwhelming. I've been through one of the large housewarmers and am now have one of the large 3-wick candles. I'd buy this one over and over....it's such a great scent for the kitchen, living room, and dining room. I wish they made more nuanced scents like this! The only draw back is the packing. I really hate the cheesy yankee candle packaging, but at least the 3-wick candle has a more modern look.
I'd been looking for this color for awhile after I read that it was a dupe for Chanel's White Satin. The color is a gorgeous milky white with no shimmer, striking the right balance between being too sheer (i can just barely see my natural nail) or too opaque (like white out). It manages to look both classic and modern at the same time. My only complaint is that it goes on a bit streaky. I need to use three coats to even it out
Stone age is a gorgeous color, like pewter but with a blue tinge. It looks darker in the bottle than it came out on my nails. It's on the darker end of the spectrum, but definitely not in the category of vamps. Very appropriate for day or evening. I think that anyone could pull this color off. If you're in to unusual shades, this fits the bill, but if you rarely stray from pinks, reds, and corals, I think you would find this color to be very wearable. It looks great with my tanned hands and I think it will make an excellent fall color as well.
Sun Goddess is a wonderful bronzey/orange color. Normally I don't go for such warm colors, but this is such a great color for summer for a bronze eye look. I wear it on my lid with a dark brown liner. It's very pigmented and goes on easily. It's a nice pop of color, (I'm ppp, but a little darker in summer) but it also subtle at the same time.
I had the vanilla scent. Didn't have a problem with odor, but it broke me out, so I had to toss it. Guess it was the fragrance that I had a reaction to, but I'm going back to Dove.
