Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Organic Root Stimulator - Replenishing Pak

One of my staples. I usually use it once a week until my hair gets enough protein and starts to feel dry. It's amazing. Tangles fall right out and my hair is super soft. Make sure you rinse thoroughly. Has a tendency to make your hair gummy if not rinsed properly. Also try not to get any in your mouth (if you wash in the shower). Yuck!
Hair -Unlisted Brand - MACADAMIA NATURAL OIL Deep Repair Mask

Did nothing for my hair. It was actually more tangled than before I washed it. I had to coat my hair with serum to make it soft and manageable again. I will try it one more time since I bought two packets since the conditioner combined with the serum afterwards work so well.
I bought this in the smaller size so I only paid $6.50 at Ulta (thank goodness). I used it after the deep repair mask and I'm not sure whether it was the mask or the leave in that made my hair feel and look so dry. I had to slather it with serum to make it soft and shiny again. The one plus side to it was that it left my hair slightly stronger (i had severe breakage) and for some reason my curls had more definition. I am willing to give it one more chance... BTW I have long, relaxed hair that I straighten weekly.

Didnt really 'bronze' my skin, though it gave it a sparkly sheen. Not really what I was looking for. It also caused me to have whiteheads all over, mostly on my forehead which went away right after I ceased usage. It could have been because I piled it on to try to create more definition, who knows.

Its okay. Doesnt remove all my makeup, but I love that it doesnt dry my skin out so I just use it in the morning. It leaves my skin soft and glowing the whole day. Plus I dont even have to use a moisturizer under my foundation (which does contain spf)
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Elucence - Moisture Balancing

Just when I thought I found my HG, it just stopped working! When I applied it, my hair felt like butter, but then when I rinsed it out it felt dry and stringy...buuuut after I apply it as a leave in-my hair is soft again. Now I just use it as a leave in/setting lotion. I'm still up in the air on this one.I'll continue to purchase because I love the ingredients and scent.. btw my hair texture is curly/coily (af am)

Love this scent! Usually I buy the body mist for 18 bux, but I just couldnt pass up the roll on on sale for 4. So convenient I can care my favorite scent everywhere for touchups. The scent is so subtle and sexy.

Love it! I just purchased it at walmart for just under 3 bux in the color fudge. its more like a caramel on my highly pigmented lips but its perfect under my favorite gloss. Will probably go back to purchase a few more because there were just so many colors I wanted to try!

Hate it! It's nothing but a big watery mess! Does nothing for my hair!

It's been 2 weeks and i definately notice a difference. I have a lot of baby lashes growing in which makes them look a lot fuller. I can take off my mascara at night and still look as though I left a coat on. Also the tiny bald patches in my eyebrows (due to overplucking) have grown in and I can actually reshape them now. I've been giving this stuff away as gifts, it's awesome! And only 5 bux (regular price) at the CVS by my house.
This mascara is just blah. The brush was really weird and stocky. I dont even know how it combs through the lashes, because the bristles are so short. My lashes only began looking 'fabulash' after the tube aged a bit and the liquid got a little thicker, but I will not repurchase. There are way better mascaras out there!
Lotions/ Creams -Sally Hansen - Hand, Nails & Cuticle Cream

Love it!!!! This cream is like a tiny miracle for my hands. I can also credit it for the strength and recent growth of my nails. This stuff is awesome! Can't leave the house without it!
I'm still not sure about this one. For one, I can put it on in the morning and by the afternoon my skin is ashy. But I can say it definately firms. I can notice a difference in my skin when I stop using it soooo...maybe I'll use it as a night time lotion because its just not moisturizing enough for me to wear during the warmer months with my skin being exposed, ashy and all.
At first I didn't like this product b/c I thought it broke me out, but it turned out to be something else. Anyway, this stuff is cool. I have it the caramel shade and it does a lovely job blending in with my skin tone. However it doesnt really cover my blemishes that well but I like the spf factor.
It's a shame it took me reading the reviews on this board to change my mind about ProActiv. I was under the impression that it worked for everyone! Everyday I'd tell myself, "okay, one more day...it'll get better...". It's been like 2 months and it only worked the first couple weeks. I may as well go back to my previous regimen. I just recall finding my sister's old batch of proactiv 6 months ago which had actually expired. I used it anyway and it had worked! But when I bought my own system, brand new...nothing. Everytime I get excited about a pimple clearing up, another one will pop up and a week later the pimple that cleared up will show up again worst than before. It's just so depressing- this up and down. I'm done with this crap!!Update 2/22/06: Well i've discovered a system to help my skin using proactiv. I find that it is best if I only use it at night. Therefore I will continue to purchase the three month supply and I gave it one extra lippie
