Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
DrsWife 1/11/2013 11:55:00 AM
I like to use this product when I wear heavy makeup all day and its a little too set to remove with liquid cleanser. Feels nice and gentle and removes about 85-90% of makeup. I use it dry on my skin, rub for a minute then rinse. You will still need to use eye makeup remover but its good for heavy makeup over all.
I have Mexican dark brown hair that is thick and wavy with slight frizz. It is 4 inches past my shoulders and really full. My hair is my thing <3 I had reading MUA reviews for weeks trying to decide which shampoo to buy next. This shampoo does what it says it does. I have only used it once and I bought it as a set with conditioner and some sort of styling milk. The latter 2 I haven't touched yet but the shampoo after one use MADE AN AMAZING difference in the texture of my hair. I didnt switch conditioners so I am CERTAIN it is the shampoo that made the diff since all other variables remained constant. I recommend this shampoo for girls with thick heavy hair. While youre washing and lathering up you can feel the difference and when your hair dries ( I let mine naturally air dry) its a softness that my ponytail holders have to be wrapped an extra time around so they dont slip due to silkiness. At $13 a pop per bottle this is an amazing value. Not ridiculously over priced AND DOES WHAT IT SAYS. SO SOFT!!!!
I have thick coarse dark hair and inorder to best use this product I have to do it in sections. First I apply from knees down on both legs and wait about 8 minutes and then I get in the bathtub and wipe off with sponge. I find that alot of product is wasted if I used the sponge to apply so I just use my hands. This is messy to do and the tube is not very convenient- but they do offer a larger bottle in pump that is so much smarter to use. Last I do the top half of both legs and leave on for 8 minutes and jump in the shower to clean off. Its time consuming, but its a hair remover cream so what do you expect. Its messy yes, it has an odor although that has improved from the start up model of this. I dont think its all bad if you have the time. It does get your legs super smooth. I think I would recommend it but with all its warnings.
Would not flat iron without this. I use it with Iron Guard by Chi. The diff it makes is OUTSTANDING. I have colored hair- including bleaching for about 5 years and its down to a little below shoulders. This coats your hair in a good way. I apply it to my hair when wet and then blow dry dry with flat brush. When my hair is dry I apply over all Iron Guard and section my hair. When I am ready to go over my hair with iron, I apply Iron Guard to each individual section. I AM TELLING YOU the DIFFERENCE IS OUTSTANDING- Incredible. This should COME with the flat irons because it is necessary for such strong heats. I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT Along with IRON GUARD. I purchased mine @ Nordstrom Rack for a little over $12-13. Worth the price. Big fat bottle. Will DEF Repurchase. The smell is not bad and doesnt linger on, so dont let that stop you from having silky hair.
In love with these. Get em during the sale for best value. Stays on. The perfect blend of stickiness with moisture. Colors are vibrant. you can also get em new on ebay for cheap. BEST GLOSS I have ever tried. $14 seems a little much but you do get your moneys worth. Totally rec. to all!
Treatments -Goldwell - Dry and Porous Intensive Treatment

I shoulda known by the low % Makeupalley gave it... I purchased this @ Marshalls for 3.99. What a deal- but in the end I got what I paid for. Does not condition, does not do much for "Dry and Porous" hair. Nothing. Would never buy again. Waste of $4, I coulda had a Starbucks instead! Will probably use this with actual conditioner just to use it up for I can not bear to throw stuff out during troubled times. Do not buy this. Save your $ for something that actually helps your dry hair. NOTE: I just tossed this out. Its absolutely no good!
Great color for a brunette. I have fair skin and brown hair and eyes. Looked GREAT! Coppery shimmer, not too dark. Tastey too. Staying power is above most drugstore brands. Great price of 2 for $10, altho I would not pay $ 7.50 for this product (regular price). fun, cheap, girly.

These are fun, girly, and cheap. DOnt expect too much and you wont be let down. Staying power is about a 7 out of 10. Some have glitter and some just have sheer shine. Flavors are awesome. Not too gooey. Just right for the price of 2 for $10. However, I would not pay regular price of 7.50 each. That is too much for an average product, IMO.
I didnt know how to use this product. I have wavey hair and I just wanted a little something to add shine, control frizz, and perhaps to add a little bit of style of my waves. It did none of the above. The texture is nice, a little puddy-ish not really oily with somewhat of a stick to it. But I had no idea how to use it!
I am reviewing the curl enhancing gel. This product is dissapointing. I purchased it @ Nordstrom Rack for over $10. It doesnt do anything! light- but too light to have any affect on my hair. I have moderately thick wavy hair. I have applied it in diff ways to see if there are any changes the application method makes- wet hair, semi dry hair, only the ends, all over and put it back, etc. But this does nothing. I wish I could get my $13 back.
Skincare - Face -Murad - Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel

THERE SHOULD BE A WARNING LABEL ON THIS! DO NOT TRY THIS. PLEASE! Made my skin even worse. Applied this in a thin layer and started stinging. I ignored the burn (dumb) and the next day I had a large patch on my cheek where it was red and bumpy. Its been 3 days now. I cant believe this is on the market! Will never buy again.

I loved this! I would recommend that you apply a thin layer right out of the shower. And if you need more go back and reapply. I used to have flakey dry skin and in the mirror you could see all the dry spots and scaling, but not more! This product has transformed my skin into supple prettniess. I was careful not to write a review immediately and I have been using it for almost 6 months. I am def going back to purchase more. I dont use it as a night cream, I didnt even know you could. But I just might now....
Moisturizers -Philosophy - when hope is not enough replenishing cream

I got this as a sample from Sephora. My complaints are as follows: 1. It kinda stings when you first apply it. Is that normal? 2. It made me break out. I dont recommend it, I will not purchase full size, I dont like it.
Bought this at Big Lots for about 2.99. Im pretty happy with my purchase. It does have a mens cologne spray but unless youre way sensitive to it it shouldnt bother you so much. Glossing effect that I enjoy. Very light misting comes out of the bottle. Not oily, not too much, not sticky, just light. Great for my dry wavy hair.
Recieved this as gift recently. HORRIBLE! YUCK. Im gonna toss it and buy a new mascara ASAP. clumpy, dries fast, formula sucks. NOT GOOD AT ALL. DO NOT PURCHASE.
