Gels/Soaps -Dove - purley pampering nourishing body wash

Amazing. I've always loved Dove's body washes, and this is their best in my opinion. They all smell amazing and make my skin so soft. Definitely helps during the winter months when skin is super dry.
I love this stuff! I use the kind meant for "Extra dry, damaged hair" as they say on the package. I will say I've tried the shampoo for just "Dry, damaged hair" and I can tell a huge difference between the two. The shampoo for extra dry hair works wonders! My hair is naturally curly, and I use this on the days when I just want to throw my hair back in a ponytail. It makes my hair so smooth, shiny, and soft. I can also tell it does a really good job of defining my curls. Plus, my man thinks it smells wonderful so that's a bonus :)
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Dermacontrol OIl Control Foam Wash

This face wash was a huge disappointment. Slightly expensive for a drugstore face wash too. I've used much better for half the price. The first week or so of using this I had no acne but wanted to find a face wash that could control my oily skin. Now after two weeks, my face has horribly broken out all over the place. My jawline, cheeks, forehead, areas that haven't broken out like this since I was in middle school. I can feel that it doesn't remove all of the dirt and oil in my pores like my previous acne wash had. Will definitely not be using this again since I am having to do serious repair on my skin now.
Styling Products -Redken - Real Control Crema Care

I have curly hair that I straighten pretty frequently and use this when I'm going to be drying and straightening it. This product makes my hair so shiny and smooth and it prevents flyaways and frizziness without weighing it down or making it greasy. Redken can do no wrong!
I bought the first Naked palette and loved it, so of course I was excited when I heard they were making a second one. I love this one even more! The shades are more gray and silver based instead of bronze and gold like the first one. They're highly pigmented and last all day long without creasing when used with the UD eyeshadow primer. Definitely worth the price.
I tried this mascara on its own and hated it. It didn't hold a curl and made my lashes clumpy. However, I tried layering it on top of another mascara (Cover Girl Lash Blast 24 HR) and LOVED the results. It made my lashes look significantly longer, darker, and thicker. I have never had a mascara that has given me results like this. If you don't have luck using it on its own, try layering it with another one.
This is a great mascara if you're looking for something that's long lasting. Doesn't flake and is the best at keeping curl all day long. However, I bumped it down a couple of points because of how incredibly difficult it is to remove. I have to scrub it off with makeup remover and it takes a long time. Even after washing my face, I can still see leftover mascara on my eyelashes. I'm hoping to find another mascara that performs as well as this one without being so difficult to remove.
I love this color! With a good shiny top coat the shimmer stands out and makes it so pretty. Great color for fall.
This lotion makes my skin very soft and healthy. My only complaint is that it also made my skin somewhat greasy and would get very slick whenever I sweated.
Didn't do much for me at all. It would last for maybe 4-5 hours and then I'd have to reapply. It's also really easy to get too much product out which was annoying.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Degree Clinical Protection

Great deodorant. Lasts all day and is the best for preventing sweat.
The best liquid eyeliner I've used. Easy to apply and lasts all day long without smudging. Perfect for doing winged eyeliner!
This foundation has great buildable coverage which I love so I can hide imperfections without having my face look like a pancake. It also keeps my face shine-free, which is a feat that no other foundation has been able to do, and it does so without making my skin feel dry and tight like other mattifying foundations. Lasts long and doesn't transfer onto anything. Definitely will be using this for a while!
Hair -Clairol - herbal essences honey i'm strong shampoo and conditioner

After reading all of the good reviews, I decided to try this shampoo. I was very disappointed. It made my hair dry and frizzy and it completely fried it. The only reason why I gave it two stars instead of one is because it smells really good. Not going to buy this again.
I love having my hair highlighted because of the results, but HATE the amount of damage that always comes after. I recently got them done and had more damage than usual. I couldn't do anything with my hair, no matter what I did with it it would always just frizz up and look a mess because it was so damaged and was lacking so much moisture. I love Redken products and have always had success with them, so when I heard about this I hoped that it would rescue my hair. After using this, my hair is in better condition than it was before I even got it highlighted. It is so shiny and feels so soft, I no longer have that "crunchy" feeling on the ends of my hair. And plus, it doesn't even get frizzy in humidity, which is a miracle during the summer in Virginia. Will definitely be buying this again.
