This product is awesome! I had bought it at my local health food store after a recommendation of someone on the boards and reading the MUA & Amazon reviews. I'm a harsh critic on skin products because I really do believe that a lot of products are scams/rip-off's -- but this product really does work! I've noticed a difference with my fine lines and my acne has completely cleared up. I have hormonal acne and get blackheads from time to time an now they're gone and I haven't had to use any acne creams or washes etc. My skin tone seems more even and I have one acne scar that seems to be fading. Additionally, this product is relatively inexpensive and a staple in my routine. I've read some people had stinging or a little irritation but I had zero stinging or irritation! I have fair skin, blonde hair green eyes - so my skin does get irritated from some products but I had no problem with this one! Definitely recommend - 5 stars!!!
Wow! I just tried my first few yogurt masks this week and my skin feels AMAZING! I just slather plain full fat yogurt on my face, leave on for 20-30 minutes and rinse with water and pat dry. I don't wash afterwards so that the residue is left behind on the skin. Even after the first one I felt a noticeable difference; my skin is so soft. Best mask I've ever used! Love it! And so cheap. I buy the generic brand for around $2. Amazing.
I really like this acne treatment line! I have been using it on and off for years and it always works great on my combination skin. I only get acne once a month bc of hormones or when I am stressed and this always helps a lot. I just bought some at Nordstrom Rack (I've been buying it there for years) and from what I researched online it doesn't look like it's discontinued. Hoping not!
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

I am really surprised this BB cream doesn't have a higher overall rating! It is a great price for the money - you get a huge bottle compared to other drugstore rand BB creams. I feel like this gives you very good coverage and I use this in place of a Foundation. It is a little on the thick side and definitely applies like a cream foundation. I find that it does a great job at making my complexion even and smooth looking. The smell is not good and not bad, just basic and unobtrusive. It is the perfect everyday BB cream because it is cheaper than most per ounce. When I'm going out and doing full makeup I use this as a secondary primer; first my primer to even fine lines, them this BB cream to even complexion and help the foundation grab better to my skin and give it longer lasting power, and then my foundation. I really like this BB cream!!!
BB Cream -L'Oreal - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
Summer8167 3/1/2013 11:52:00 PM
I've bought this product several times and I'm surprised the overall rating isn't higher! It's actually a really good drugstore BB cream! As other people have said, the only thin I do not like is the "beautifying beads" (it can irritate skin) and the fact that it can pool and crust around any dry patches you may have. However, those two things aside it's a GREAT primer to even out skin! I often wear it as my foundation. Great product for the price!
Rimmel makes a few pretty good mascara's but this one is not one of of them. The purple tube (can't remember the name) is a lot better! Scandal eyes works just ok. Seems to come off by the end of the day. Wouldn't recommend.
I like this perfume, although I would not put it on my top ten list. I have had mixed reactions to Burberry scents; I've tried most of them over the years and I either hate them or really like them. This one I really like. I think I like the regular Burberry Brit better, but the two are completely differen. The Sheer is very citrusy and sweet. Reminds me of a more floral Light Blue and reminds me a lot like I Love Love (another great citrus based scent). It's great for daywear. I am a perfume junkie and I love to layer my fragrances. This is a great top note fragrance to use when layering with another perfume.
You can find this fragrance for super cheap nowadays and it's a great basic perfume to have. I use it as a base; I love to layer my perfumes. It allows me to find new fragrances out of my collection of current scents. It definitely smells like a unisex scent with a slight sweet overtone. Has a mild lingering smell that lasts all day.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)
Summer8167 2/24/2013 12:48:00 AM
I love using coconut oil on my hair and skin! I use it on my scalp as a carrier for other hair growth products I use and I use it on my skin and hair to moisturize. I often mix it with other essential oils like tea tree oil or peppermint oil or rosemary. It has antimicrobial properties and is great for preventing or getting rid of dandruff or dry flaky skin.
Even though I said I wouldn't buy this primer again, I still think it works just fine - espcly for the money since its really cheap. It keeps the shadow on decently but doesn't do a great job at preventing creasing.
It's a lovely scent - while it lasts! I have spent & wasted so much money on perfumes that I now always test out perfumes for a week before I buy (I either get a tester from Sephora or I go to ulta and fill up one of those small travel refillable pumps you can get). I've been wanting to get a new sweet / flowery fragrance and decided to try Gucci Envy Me before buying. I love the smell but it lasts less than an hour even though it's an EDP.
I like this perfume even though I said I wouldn't buy it again. It is very unique and everything I initially smell it I love it. However, the only reason I wouldn't buy it again is bc after the dry down I sometimes smell a "bug spray" chemically whiff. This happened when I tried it out at Sephora but I thought maybe it was the mixture of the other perfume I had put on earlier in the day. Regardless, it might just be my body chemistry! It's def a unique smell and it smells good. I think I like Burberry Brit better; it's a little deeper. Both good fragrances!
Hair -Unlisted Brand - Brazilian Keratin Treatment - Marcia

Watch out! I would not do this or ANY BTK again! Please do some research before getting one of these treatments. I have personally had horrific side effects from them and have read / met many other women whom have as well. I had major hair loss and after two years have finally recovered from it. My bf is a physician and he was encouraging me to sue the salon or manufacturers but I ended up not doing it. However, if you reaserach it you will find that there are serious chemicals like fermalhyde in it. Some say there isn't any fermalhyde in it but if you research further you will find they actually have other aldehyde chemicals that when heated to a certain temperature will turn into a fermalhyde complex. Point is, if you are thinking of doing one please please please do a lot of reaserach!!!
I found this hair spray randomly and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I have tried every salon and drugstore finalizing spray or flexible hold hairspray out there over the last few years and haven't found one that keeps my hair soft, holds a long style, helps keep down frizz and still is brushable or able to keep my hair soft. I don't even know where to buy this product but I found it on Amazon and am going to buy every bottle I possibly can. I've recently been using Rusk W8tless Hairspray but Haven't been totally happy with it; it still kinda makes my hair hard and gives it that hairspray feel to it which I cannot stand if I am wearing my hair down in a long style. This hairspray makes my hair look and feel amazing.
Wow!!! This is one of the best hair oils I've ever bought mostly because it is literally an all-natural hair oil that is GREAT for growing out your hair or making your hair healthier. A lot of salon brand oils use fillers that are unhealthy for the hair and scalp. I have been liking for an all natural oil, and tool to making my own composed of essential oils but it cost a small fortune to do so. Eden's Body Works Peppermint Tea Tree oil cost $9.99 regular price at Sally's (I bought on sale for $6.99!) In comparison, when I bought some all natural essential oils separately it cost me over $60). Yes, they are some hair oils that perform better as a hair styling aid to combat frizz in the sense that it is lighter (I love Rusk's Argan Oil) - however, this oil is better for thick hair, or as a hair or scalp treatment because it has so many oils in it and is all natural. There is no mineral oil in it and it is paraben free. When you read the ingredients it lists only oils: sweet almond oil, jojoba, coconut oil, rosemary, lavender, peppermint oil, tea tree oil. I definitely recommend this hair oil, especially for the price!
