This is a great cleanser for sensitive skin. Cleanses thoroughly without drying me out. However, it's a bit pricey ($33 for 8.4 fl.oz.) I've also recently found that Olay's sensitive foaming face wash has worked just as effectively for me as this.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash

I picked up this cleanser while on vacation after forgetting to bring along my HG (Dermalogica special cleansing gel). My skin is extremely sensitive, so most cleansers usually irritate my skin, dry me out or break me out. This cleanser has been awesome! In fact, I think I might like it better than my Dermalogica (Shhh....don't tell). I'll probably end up making this my daily face wash, as it works just as well as my Dermalogica at literally a fraction of the price. Definitely give this one a try.
I really adore this polish, it's one of my favs so far. It's a very light pink that's slightly build-able. One coat is basically invisible, 2 coats is slightly darker, but I think 3 coats gives a very pretty faint pink color. Application was super easy and so far it's wearing well. 4 days now and no chips. (of course I use my zoya base and top coat, which might affect the durability). Overall, awesome color for a MNBB look and I would definitely repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm spf 25

I recently purchased this lip balm in the natural mint scent. and I love this stuff! I consider myself a chapstick junkie and I really hate wearing lip gloss. This does not feel anything like a sticky lipgloss. To me, it feels like I have a really smooth and moisturizing chapstick on. It doesn't have a glossy look to either. My husband is always using my chapstick, and he was hesitant to try this since it comes in a lipgloss looking tube, but he likes it too and has even taken it to work on some days, since he works outside and his lips get chapped from the cold and wind. I will be buying more of these on my next trip to Sephora!
This nail file is Awesome! I've always hated to file my nails and thus never really did. I've been obsessed lately with taking better care of my nails and decided to give this a try. I'm so so glad I did! It files my nails so nice, makes them so smooth and neat looking. I would recommend this to everybody! Seriously, if you think you hate filing your nails you should do yourself a favor and give this a try!
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Foot works Deep Moisture Cream

This is a decent lotion; nothing special or fancy, but nothing bad either. It moisturizing properties are average, but for the cheap price you can get it at, I'd definitely repurchase.
Great topcoat! This is definitely my favorite so far. Keeps my polish from chipping and I'm pretty rough with my nails. Would definitely repurchase!
I really like this basecoat. I use this interchangeably with Zoya's other basecoat, Get Even (Which I also love!). No, this won't fill in your ridges, but it also doesn't claim to. This applies very nicely and helps to make my polish last a bit longer. Will definitely repurchase.
Styling Products -Aveda - Light Elements Smoothing Fluid

I use this as sort of a smoothing serum once my hair is dry/styled. Works well to keep frizzies away and gives my hair a nice healthy shine. Replaced my matrix serum with this. Will definitely repurcahse.
Styling Products -Aveda - Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener

Love this! I put it in my hair after the style-prep smoother when my hair is about half way dry. They blow dry and style as usual (which is usually straight with a flat iron). It does a great job of keeping my hair from getting frizzy and adds a nice gloss. Would definitely repurchase.
Treatments -Aveda - Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother

I don't like to style my hair very often, so this is great to put in my damp hair and allow it to air dry without getting super frizzy. I can definitely see a difference when i don't use this. It's also great that it works as a heat protector, for the days I do style. I love the smell of aveda products and this is no exception. I will definitely repurchase!
Okay, I'm a serious foot cream/lotion junkie. My feel always get dry and this is definitely my favorite foot cream to reach for! This is pretty thick, smells great, moisturizers well and never irritates my skin. I will repurchase for as long as they sell it.
I LOVE this hand cream. This is my all time favorite HG! I have very sensitive skin, so a lot of lotions will irritate me, but this never does. This is a lighter lotion in texture, but it does a great job of moisturizing, sinks in super fast and never ever leaves a greasy feeling. I will continue to buy this as long as they sell it!
I love this conditioner! This works great as an everyday conditioner; it's not heavy at all, actually a bit on the lighter side so it never weighs my hair down. I also love the smell. However, I hate the tube it comes it. I feel like I can never get all the product out and there's no way you could refill it if you were to buy the larger size; I don't like keeping huge bottles in the shower. Kind of strange for a company that's so big on being 'green'. The price is also crazy; $21 for 6.7 fl.oz. I will definitely repurchase as long as my wallet allows!
This is hands down my all time favorite HG shampoo! I have very thin, wavy and often frizzy hair that tends to get oily at the scalp. This shampoo does a great job of cleaning my hair, while not drying out the ends. The faint, herbal smell is awesome, IMO. My only complaint is the price; it's ridiculous. $21 for an 8.5 fl.oz. bottle. Not the most expensive I've seen, but it's up there. Will definitely continue to repurchase as long as my wallet allows!
