Clumpy hot mess! One pro is that it is super black and that's about it! Ever since Cover Girl came out with Lash Blast sooo many companies are copying the brush, which I can't stand, I don't get the hype! One coat of this stuff is clumpy and you have to work fast to get your lashes just right or else they freeze into spider lashes! Not attractive. Definitely don't attempt a second coat unless you are wearing sunglasses for the rest of the day! Really really hard to remove. Won't be repurchasing!
After spending too much money in Salons and often disappointed with results, I went back to this good old drugstore stand by. That was two yrs ago and I will never pay Salon prices again. The name says it all Nice and Easy!!! The color does come out darker ex: I have dark brown hair and I use Medium Natural Brown and it is a perfect match, shiny and natural looking! I also use this brands Root touch up every other month and its good as well. Why bother paying $60 plus bucks every 4 - 6 wks when you can get just as good results for less than $10.

Love the pakaging and that's about it. My combination skin was an oil slick within 2 hrs, because it was moisturizing i did not even use a moisturizer before. Also it did not even out my complextion what a joke with the green and lavender! What a wast of $11.00 and it was on sale! Will stick with monistat anti chafing gel it's cheap and it works!
Hair Color -Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color
GlosslipGirl 9/12/2011 11:41:00 PM
I have used Natural instincts for years, I color my hair once per month and it always covered my greys nicely, i would follow the directions and leave it on for 5 extra minutes and always had lovely results.....until they changed the package and obviously the formula. My greys are shining through after 2.5 wks and that 2 wk orange crap refresher is a waste of time and DOES stain your scalp like others have mentioned. Great job Clairol now i am on the hunt for another hair dye that actually does what it claim,s come on most women color their hair to cover greys, get a clue and provide what your consumers want!
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - Clearly Natural - glycerine Soap

I found this soap at the grocery store in their small natural products area, i decided to try it because of the small amount of natural ingredients listed. I have to say i really like the soap! Smooth clean skin without alot of bs ingredients. I don't mind that it doesn't lather alot, to me lots of lather = chemicals! If you find the soaps try it, your skin will thank you :)
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel
GlosslipGirl 1/17/2011 3:08:00 AM
I bought this in a sample size and mix it with hydrolonic acid for my daytime moisturizer a smal squirt of aloe and a few drops of ha rub my hands together and apply.. too easy! and i have to say i am loving the way it makes my face feel and look! My skin is oily in the T zone and this moisturizes my face without it feeling and looking greasy it absorbs wonderfully! Many other uses for aloe vera gel , it should be a staple for everyone! Cheap and effective try it!
I have a love hate relationship with LUSH, i love that alot of their products are "homemade", and when i personally think of homemade i think good for you, alas not the case w/ LUSH, i use to love their shampoo bars and soap until i read in their newsletter the ingredients, they all have SLS! Anyway this is a review for Jungle for me it was a conditioner that did NOT condition my fine dry hair, it was a pain to use either too mushy or to hard! I will continue to buy some things at LUSH but Not this conditioner!
Gels/Soaps -Dr. Bronner's - dr bronners assorted scented castille soaps

My 2 year old has suffered with Exzema since he was 4 mths old....finally i have found a great all over body and hair wash for him that doesn't irritate his skin!! I have been using Dr. Bronner's baby on him for a couple of months now and love the results. I bought a sample size and it has lasted 2 mths with a bit still left! Will continue to purchase!
I have been using this since it hit the shelves here in Canada....so about 4 mths now. I love it, i don't curl my lashes anymore simply because i don't have too! My lashes are now longer with a bit of curl and there is less fallout if any and they look long and strong! Highly recommend trying it to see if it works for you!
On my quest to make my own skin care products this mask really caught my attention! I do suggest start off with using 2 asprins to test your sensitivity also mixing the asprin with yogurt and or honey really makes this mask soothing on your skin. So many variations you can add to the asprin to customize it to suit your skins needs. Works great overnight as a spot treatment really gets the red out, a bit crumbly when left on overnight but worth the results the next morning! Try it!
Love ACV it is all natural and cheap, I use it as a hair rinse, mix it into my homemade face masks and make my own ACV and Green Tea face toner! Yes it smells a bit funky but it is so worth it for the results you get! Try it and let the experimenting begin!
I love using Green Tea as a toner! I also mix Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar with it about a 50/50 mixture. I make a really strong cup of tea and bought small plastic bottles to store it in. This combo has really reduced my pores and faded red marks, less break outs and oiliness too! There are so many Natural skin care recipes you can make with Green Tea!
I was so excited when i got this for a Birthday gift from my sister, but the excitement quickly faded after wearing it! I really didn't see what the hype was about.....I can't justify paying that much $ for something that was no better than a cheap drugstore brand, it also dried out really quickly! I used it for a few weeks and then tossed it! Damn Benefit for their awesome packaging and marketing foiled again!
