I bought this at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $3 on clearance along with another $3 for the shampoo. Honestly I've used it for a week and it feels like my hair is coated with something weird. I may come back to this because I can't return it and I hate wasting it. Might be good to shave with but I'm not a fan for it with my hair :(
I have these in multiple shades because they have been on super sale where I work (drugstore) not being discontinued but just many rewards after purchase. I applied the base coat, cobalt blue, and top coat on Saturday (it's Monday AM) by now with a normal color, it would have chipped. I struggle so much with keeping polish on that I stopped for a few months. Too much of a hassle to get perfect and then have it chip. Very shiny with top coat. No tip wear after 2 ish days- which is a lot for me! I really like the brush, the color goes on well, and I like the top coat and base coat.
I bought this after having an updo done for my cousin's wedding. Little did I know, I wouldn't need it because the stylist already sprayed the **** out of my hair. I took the bobby pins out and my hair stayed! perhaps overkill...... ANYWAYS. I think it is expensive but I like Aveda products so I will spend the money for them. Packaging is good but you have to make sure the aerosol doesn't get clogged. Now to the hairspray itself, this stuff HOLDS- it does make your hair sticky if you touch it but once it dries it will hold you FOREVVVERRRR. Great stuff for summer humidity. I find myself using this with both straight and curly looks to get some hold in this weather. If you aren't looking for SUPER SUPER HOLD, don't buy this product. I will rebuy if I ever run out but who knows when that will be.

Sadly, I will not repurchase. I got this at my local drugstore for $1.50 so super cheap. Like the bottle, standard mousse bottle. The product can leave my hair crunchy and makes it hard to get second day hair if I use this the first day. HOWEVER, if I don't use this on the first day, I can scrunch this in and add hair spray to get second day hair. It was a good price but sadly the product is just ok- nothing great. Still in search of HG curly wear for my hair.
This is one acne treatment I will be repurchasing. I don't remember the price being outrageous probably between 4-7 dollars. The packaging helps to funnel the product to the bottom so you can get every last drop, with this you can even cut the top and scrape out that among the bottom of the tube. I like that I don't get "peely" with this product and that it helps to clear up my acne.
I thought I would should have some toner in my cabinet so I went to Walmart and this was $4. I thought it was a cheap price but not compared to other toners. I was looking for the "Proactive" knock off specifically because I have heard some (not all) good things about proactive. Packaging is awesome, as someone said below it has a twist off cap that reveals a small hole in which you can squirt out as much as you need. Love that I don't need to touch it to my cotton. I wouldn't buy this again because I didn't feel like it helped my skin that much. I'm not sure what I was looking for but I didn't see any change.
I really like this scent. I bought it in a perfume tube that you put in your purse (shaped like a lipstick with a cap that reveals the sprayer) I'm not sure if I would buy a full size bottle as I have many other perfumes in my cabinet but I enjoy the scent enough that I would buy another purse pack for locations where you might have forgotten to put yours on! Price was cheap because I got mine on clearance for $2.49
I have re-boughten this product probably 3 times since 2009 and still have some left! I originally bought this in 2009 because it had a nice scent with a free lotion with purchase. I love this scent and use it daily for work. One squirt per wrist and wipe on my neck and I can smell it without it being overwhelming. I like that its a clean scent. I have no idea what "notes" or "undertones" it has but I know that it smells nice on me.
I have seen this for the last probably 2 years and finally bought it this past week when it was on sale for 99 cents. I tried it on a break on top of my Sally Hansen "Shell We Dance" and put 3 coats on. Looked nice but I needed to clean up my cuticles. The price is super cheap. The packaging is ok- I don't know how you could improve. It can seem goopy but mine was ok for application. I re-did them again at home and found that putting a clear coat (not a base coat because I didn't have any) and then more clear coat on top- helps tremendously with removal. It does chip pretty easy but like I said, I didn't use a proper base/top coat with this. I would definitely buy this again if I lost mine but I doubt I can ever finish a nail polish!
I love this scent! My boyfriend bought it for me because I love Coach (flammable I know!) I really like that you only need 2-3 squirts max and you can still smell it later on that day. I am almost done with my first bottle and will definitely be repurchasing!
I bought this about a year ago from TJMaxx for $10. I do like the packaging because it channels all the product downward. I think the price is ok, not dirt cheap but not super expensive because it lasts a long time. I would buy this product again given my results. I shampoo/condition my hair, get most of the "dripping" water out and put this in while my hair is very wet. I find that the water left in my hair, along with the quarter size amount helps to distribute this through my shoulder length hair evenly. I also add Herbal Essances Tousle Me Softly mousse (which I'm not a fan of but I'm trying to use it up) and Aveda Control Force hairspray which I love. I can get second day hair with this as long as I never put up my hair... it messes with the pattern somehow.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Shell We Dance

Let me start off by saying that I bought this in a 3 pack with Back to the Fushcia and a clear for $4.24 so YES it was a great value. I love this super sheer pink, it looks great when I'm just trying to look professional for work. It gives my nails a lovely color and I hardly notice when it starts to wear out. I love the brush for this formula, I know people have complained that it is too big and bulky- well I LOVE that part of it because it cuts the time in half to do. I hate when I have a tiny brush and I need to go back to the pot for more color. Anyways, now to the formula- I think this formula is FANTASTIC- I own about 10 of this type of polishes and pick them up anytime I can on sale ( I never pay full price for anything) I've found them from $2-4 dollars on clearance or stacked with coupons.
Yes I would rebuy this product if I lost mine or if it was somehow damaged- I really don't think I will EVER be able to finish all this shadow ;) This was an impulse purchase for me after picking up the MUFE HD foundation- I decided that instead of going somewhere for spring break- I would head to the "fancy mall" and spend $100 at sephora. I really like watching Youtube videos to help me figure out how to apply all these beautiful colors. I think this is a great value for 12 shadows and I would normally purchase neutrals as I am not brave in color. I think the colors are blendable and apply nice compared to some of the cheaper shadows that I have. I also use the brush that came with it to apply my base color or my lid color.

I bought this two years ago and still have product left- it is also still as good as the day I started using this. The stylist who cut my hair used this when my hair was wet before blowdrying but also a teeny bit before flat ironing. My hair was so glossy and smooth. I loved it. Now I am able to recreate that look at home. Probably about 6 months ago, I thought I would need to repurchase soon, but the bottle is still going strong. The tube helps it drain to the bottom and even when I think its done, I will cut off the top and see if there is any left. I would 100% repurchase this even if I couldn't find it on sale. It is a staple in my straight hair arsenol.

I have naturally wavy hair that I straighten 3-4 days a week for work. I sometimes stray from this product, but when I come back, I remember how much I love it. I have also used this when scrunching my hair to decrease frizz in this lovely Ohio weather. I find that the product is expensive, but mine has lasted me for over 18 months and I use two pumps per time for shoulder length hair. I wish I could find this on sale somewhere but I don't think I ever will
