I really enjoy this product. I was shocked to find how small it was after looking at reviews online, and for around 20 dollars I thought that was a bit steep but I purchased a bottle about two months ago and I have pleeeeenty left. I use two pumps a day minimum, and when i remember to apply at night it's around four. I was experiencing very steep bags under my eyes the past few months, but now they appear much less sunken in. Additionally, I have some pock marks and acne scars, and I've noticed an improvement in that as well...I also started to see some fine lines around my eyes, and those are also fading. While my skin is far from perfect, it looks so much better. Because I have oily skin, this suffices as my light moisturizer substitute beneath my makeup. I love this serum, and will definitely repurchase when I run out because the improvement I've seen in my skin is priceless.
Wonderful color! And so reasonably priced. I picked this up at CVS last week and the lightest color, I believe it's 001 shows up so natural on my light skin with pink undertones. I have tried several bronzers like PF, Rimmel, and Benefit's hoola, but this is by far the best! Try it and you won't be dissapointed :)
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup

I'm not sure about this product...I've been looking for my HG foundation, but I'm pretty sure that I've broken out from this. I had acne prone skin during my teenage years, but now that I'm a little older it takes a lot for me to break out and for whatever reason my skin went crazy a week after using this consistently. Therefore, I have stopped using this and have fallen back on Neutragena skin clearing makeup, although I'm still looking for my HG I'm pretty sure this is not it. As others have stated, the opening is very large so a lot comes out at once. A bit pricey for a drug store foundation, especially one I probably won't be using again.
I really wanted to purchase the 3 minute miracle Deeeep, but the drugstore I went to did not have it in stock. I tried it in the shower and it felt like it worked ok after leaving it in the recommended time, but my hair is SUPER damaged so it was in desperate need of rehab. I purchased a shower cap as another MUA user suggested and slept with the product in overnight, when I awoke my hair was so much softer! My hair has become so fried from dye jobs and styling tools my hair stopped cooperating with me completely. But after this, my hair did not feel like straw anymore and I could tell that it brought back a lot of life it was missing. I'm still in search for a real miracle because my hair isn't as manageable as I would like, but perhaps If i continue this treatment a bit more! It's sooo cheap also! If it can do something for my hair, it will definitely help others as well!
I broke out really badly this past month and this stuff cured horrible nodule pimples that had developed. It can be a little drying so i would recommend plenty of moisturizer in the morning and you should be good to go. It's pretty inexpensive and gets the job done
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

At first I wasn't sure whether I liked this or not, but I stay pretty fresh for at least five hours without blotting. Usually I can feel the oil building up on my face throughout the day and I dread looking in the mirror at the mess of makeup that has begun to drip down my face but stress no more! This stuff leaves me shine free! I love it and I especially love the price, I've tried the Smashbox products for primers and it is so not worth the price
I've gone through dozens of hair straighteners and this one I've bought and rebought three times total. I have very thick cury hair, and although I do blow dry, sometimes my hair can still be a bit damp when I want to hurry up and flat iron it. This is a wonderful too for me, the price is outrageously cheap for the quality. I think I paid like $39.00 at walgreens for it. Has been with me through many good hair days :)
I'm a sucker for bronzers, but still looking for my HG. This is NOT something that should be used as a bronzer, as the other MAU have said, the colors are absolutely beautiful for eyeshadow or a highlighter. But I made the mistake of eagerly applying this as a bronzer before I went to work..big mistake. I looked like a ball of glitter, no thank you. The packaging is nice and sturdy, seeing as I've dropped it plenty. For a drugstore product it's sort of pricey but not unreasonable. As for now, I'll stick to Benefit's Hoola for Bronzer until something better comes along.
Other -Crest - 3D Professional Effects White Strips

I'm on my eighth day or so but I started to see results after four or five, I have used Crest whitestrips before and they would always slide off my teeth before the 30 minutes were up...therefore I did not get that dramatic of results. With these, the "advanced seal" really improved this problem. However, my one major complaint is that the strips for the lower teeth are so small, they only cover six, I would much rather they kept to the original size of the old Crest whitestrips. The packaging is pretty flimsy, i threw away the box and placed all the strips in a little zip lock baggy. I paid about $40.00 for them, I'll probably have to use another batch in less than a year because that's usually when these at home whitening kits wear off. Overall, glad my smile will be at it's best for the weddings come up this summer!
Nothing memorable about this product, I bought it due to a recommendation from a friend. The colors are gorgeous in the cute packaging, but barely show up on me! If anything it just makes me look like I'm wearing too much powder and magnifies my pores (NOT attractive). I will not be buying this blush again, too expensive for such a mediocre result.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

This stuff is amazing! I bought it years ago and forgot about it until I was in dyer need of a hair serum. I recently cut my naturally curly hair pretty short, so straightening has become a huge hassle. I bought this and used it yesterday to be pleasantly surprised at how it cut down my styling time. After hoping out of the shower, I squeezed out the excess water, towel dried it a little and due to my thick hair, I used about three pumps, and began the blow drying/straightening regimen. Goodbye frizz! My hair is so much more manageable and easier to tame, now I know why I loved this stuff so much. And the bottle is sure to last at least a year, so much product for the price you pay. The 23 something was worth it!
Liquid -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup

I don't know why I ever abandoned this gem! This is perfect for my oily skin without giving too much coverage. I have acne scars to cover up and despite the sheer to medium coverage this foundation does a wonderful job, I use a little concealer to blend. A pump would be a little bit more convenient, but the opening isn't too wide that it's a total disaster.
I was using this stuff for a few months (in oily/combo) and the coverage is way to heavy...it took me awhile to realize, but a little goes a long way. Yes, I'm aware this can be a good think and a bad thing, it just looked really unnatural and cakey on me. It may have helped my oily skin though to prolong the wear throughout the day, not sure though. I went back to my first love, Neutragena Skin Clearing makeup for oily skin, amazing!
I really like this as a bronzer even though it says foundation I purchase a darker yet nateral shade like Carmel 2 and to gives me a perfect finishing touch on my face while applying with a thick headed brush. Good bronzer!!
