I can't say I love the color or this, it reminds me of a vomit-y, 5 year old princess polish. But the formulation of this polish great. I definitely recommend it if you like the color, though it's just not for me. Price is great, too. The brush is medium to small, not too hard to work with, either.
Mascara -Rimmel - Lash Flirt Volume & Lift Mascara

This mascara makes the lashes look great. And with the different sized brushes on each side of the wand, you can get a lot of product on with the shorter side, and brush it out to de-clump it and lengthen your lashes with the longer side. The only problem I have with this is it getting on my lids when I apply it. I have never had this problem with any other mascara, and I can't figure out why it does this. My only other problem is the drying time. Once it dries it doesn't smudge, but it does take a good 5-10 minutes to dry.
Pros: -Makes my hair unbelievably soft -Saved the ends of my hair -Makes my hair dry much faster -Defines my normally frizzy curls after brushing my hair out in the morning Cons: -The packaging -The price I either use this if I shower in the morning, after I get out and towel dry my hair. I let it soak into my hair for a while, and then brush it out, and it dries beautifully. Another way I use it is if I shower at night, and then just fall asleep on my wet hair (or braid it first), in the morning I brush it out, which usually makes it frizz out. I run this through my hair and it makes my curls defines and shiny. Last way is if its my second day without washing my hair, I'll a liberal amount of baby powder through my scalp, braid my hair, then wake up brush out my hair, and put some of the moroccan oil through my hair. any of these ways makes my hair look amazing. I have very dead ends, but I don't want to cut them much because I'm trying to grow out my hair. After about a month of use my hair is sooo much healthier at the ends. Definitely a holy grail item for me.
This product saved my face. I've been having horrible stress-induced eczema, and nothing is helping. I've always sworn by cetaphil to get rid of my eczema but it just hasn't been working (not sure why, and its not the weather because I live in Hawaii and the weather doesn't change much). But I finally busted this stuff out, and my face feels so much better. Though the dry patches on my eyelids aren't entirely gone, they're so much better. I have pretty delicate skin, and in combination with the dryness sometimes I get some discomfort shortly after applying it, but it quickly goes away. Afterwards my skin feels amazingly soft, and my makeup blends over it very well. Its also made some of the hyper pigmentation from old acne on my cheek start to fade. The smell isn't to die for, but its not horrible, and it doesn't linger after applied. I would have preferred it to be in a bottle with a pump, but the jar really isn't a problem. the price is great, too. definitely suggest this if you have dry skin.
