Tea Tree oil is the only thing that has ever been a foolproof solution to my acne, even as a thirteen year old with raging hormones. All I need is a Q-Tip and clean face. Dab some on the zit and by morning it's gone, or at the very least, a lot less pissed off. I'll probably never use anything else as a spot treatment again.
This sh*t's amazing you guys. I rarely have time or energy to rub in a cream and wait for it to set properly, and this stuff is working better for me than any moisturizer ever has. Plus it is indeed refreshing. Same goes for hair!!

For me, this stuff is great. It smells beautiful on my skin, and as promised, my boyfriend loves it. He actually sniffs at me now...Haha not sure if that's a good thing but I'm sure it's a compliment. My friends know this as my signature smell, and I must say I'm proud. It's all about how it smells on you, so try the samples first.
Ugh. I've been using this for a YEAR for stretch marks, and I should have known it wouldn't do much. DAMN YOU WOMEN'S STRIPES! Anyway, it is a good moisturizer. It's too hyped up though, and it takes ages to absorb into my skin. It smells nice as well, but I just can't repurchase in good faith.

I really wanted to love this. I have it for sensitive skin, and while it does seem to soothe the irritation of shaving, I can't say without lying that it protects against odor. It just didn't hold up, not even on short walks to the drugstore or bus stop. Shame.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - EverCreme Nourishing Conditioner

I'm pretty impressed with this. I bought it on accident looking for my regular conditioner, when I knocked it over. FATE Anyway, when you put it on in the shower it really doesn't feel like much, but my God. Rinsing it was even nice. My hair is fuller and softer, split ends look a bit mended or at least less pissed off, and it smells lovely, kind of a spicy vanilla. It isn't outrageously expensive and it's lasting power is good, try it out!

I'm honestly impressed with this stuff. I've been using it since Christmas every now and then happily, but what really sold me was something that happened just recently. I got one of those pubescent mountain zits on my cheek, you know the ones. They HURT when you touch them and everyone stares? So, I just popped open this stuff, put a small amount on it, and decided to leave it be completely until it healed. Two days later, it's as good as gone, just a bit pink and raised. I never had this kind of luck with any acne spot treatment, including that pink potion by Mario Bedescu. I recommend! :]
This product works decently for the price, if the color matches your own natural brows. For me, slightly reddish brown, it did, but I have been breaking out on my eyebrows AND eyelids (? ew) with no other rational explanation. I'm gonna try and use the powder alone. F*ck that wax. To me it looks and feels like bacon grease. I'll update. *** Okay. About a month later, after using the powder alone, MUCH beter results. More natural looking and not a zit in sight. I give you all the go ahead to avoid that nasty paste.

I'm guilty of loving this product, even though it's basically Vaseline with some pink tint and fragrance. It works fabulously in all areas you'd ever think to use Vaseline. If you have a mind for the needlessly expensive and pretty, swoop it up at Sephora for six dollars. If not, go to CVS and swoop some Vaseline for half that.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Banana, Milk, Honey Hair Mask
HoneyBlunts33 4/11/2012 4:22:00 AM
Euh. Made this mask right after coloring my hair at home. Two ripe bananas, a tablespoon of honey, and a splash of milk, all mashed to a paste. It took me ages to pick the banana out after rinsing, not to mention trying to detangle my hair. Somehow I succeded in both pursuits and I am now waiting for my hair to dry. I have to admit that it looks pretty healthy, which is new for me, since I haven't gotten a hair cut in quit sometime (blasphemy, I know). Maybe I'll have to try again, but this time I'll be sure to puree the sh*t out of this before I let it anywhere near my hair. And more milk. Definitely more milk. It tasted f*cking incredible though. Give it a shot, when you have a couple of days where you don't actually need to leave the house, just in case.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship

This shampoo isn't moisturizing like it claims to be, but really, does anyone believe a moisturizing cleansing agent exists? That said, if you wet your hair thouroughly before use, only use a very tiny amount, and leave it in for no longer than ten seconds, it works suprisingly well. Just be sure to use a generous heap of the conditioner, and leave it in for a long time. That's what I do. It's a meh.
This mascara is pretty good, but I just wish it came off more natural-looking on my lashes. That's why I ended up sticking with Lash Blast, which I'm not very fond of other than that reason. The choice had to be made damnit! Full n Soft is very dark, which is great, and it lenghtens well without looking too spidery or clumpy. I wish the best of luck to everyone else with this product. But for me it smudged, another con. Not sure what to do with myself while holding a tube of this.
I have this in Quenched, and I love it more than I love my grandmother. The smell is nice but not strong, and I find myself applying it when I don't need it just to smell it. The balm itself is about as good as it gets with consistencey to me, and it's pretty good at moisturizing, too. Bonus points for the 20 SPF; I just wish it wasn't such a campy looking product. I prefer the discreet but I shouldn't complain.
I use this when I spend the night at my boy's house. There isn't room in my bag for a huge thing of shampoo/conditioner, so I just pop it in my makeup bag. Very convieniently sized, and it works wonders. Not quite sure about the tiny little applicator tip. I usually just twist the top off and shake some into my hand, then rub it together a bit to distribute. Just a dime sized pile of the sh*t and my hair is no longer greasy, and a bit more voluminous. It also smells great, to me just like Fruit Loops with a hint of lemon. Also, if you smoke cigarettes (or anything else), this is great to prevent your hair from smelling like an ashtray.
Moisturizers -Cerave - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM

I'm honestly confused about the amount of negative reviews. This is by far one of the most satisfactory moisturizers I've ever had the fortune to find. It doesn't leave my face sticky or dry, and I don't get red patches or breakouts from it. I'm sure some people have trouble with it, but I say it's worth a shot. My skin is getting much nicer as puberty comes to a close, and this is helping the process right along it seems. Haven't tried the AM version because I'm afraid of SPF in any moisturizer, but once summer comes and if my luck here continues I may give it a try.
