Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush

Ok, so maybe I'm a bit overzealous in my reviewing of this product - I've only used it twice. This is the most expensive beauty product purchase I have ever made, so I have very high expectations. So far, in my using it twice, my skin is glowing and I have a significant reduction in blackheads on my chin and cheek - one of my cheeks actually feels very smooth, no blackheads at all! That in itself is a miracle. I am a teenager and have been suffering from congested skin and the occasional (but horrible) big zit. I was quite fed up and, after reading the amazing reviews here, I splurged. Again, so far it is amazing! *knocks on wood*
This is crap. I have oily hair and this dried it out like none other. It made my hair flat, dull, and flaky. Not to mention that Suave is a persistent animal tester, but I found this in my bathroom and thought that I should use it up. I will not though. Total crap. Don't buy this.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Sheer Violet Lip Gloss

This is a pretty, natural color if applied sheerly. But this gloss stinks! Literally! It smells so bad, I have to wipe it off immediately or I start to feel nauseous. It doesn't fade away either. Ick.
No, no, no. It leaves hair dry and J&J tests on animals. There are so many other ways to test these days and thinking that 'you'd rather have it tested on a lab rat than never on animal skin at all' is ridiculous. There are so many companies that don't test on animals - Revlon, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Nexxus, Clinique, Paul Mitchel; The list goes on. They get by without testing on animal skin and has anyone EVER heard of a company having problems with reactions because they didn't test on animals? I don't think so. So overall this would get a three if J&J didn't test, now it gets a one.
I adore this so, so much! Hawaiian Tropic does not test on animals which is amazing since nearly all sunblock companies that are on the cheaper side do. I also use this is 30+ and 45+ and they are all amazing! I love the coconut smell, the way it absorbs quickly and the price! This is my HG body sunscreen.

Meh, this is more of a 3.5. It is difficult to find good hair care for my straight, flatish, oily-at-the-roots and dry-ish everywhere else hair. This smells nice and I like the tingle, but while its nice to my roots, it dries out the rest of my hair. Not for me. (But then, what is?) EDIT: Down two lippies for animal testing. Now a one.
This is nice, I really like the color. It looks so natural. But I don't really like powder blushes, cause on me they never last. I don't know why I bought this, probably because I loved the color so much. Sorry, I can't love this or repurchase. I also hate the EXTERMELY fingerprint-prone packaging.
Smells okay, barely showed up on my fair skin. End of story
I love this! The whole C.O. Bigelow clear line has quickly become my HG daily balms. They are shiny, moisturizing, and smell/taste amazing! *Heart*

I love this. The whole C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lipshine clear collection have become my HG daily balms. This is moisturizing, smells/tastes delicious, and adds just a bit of sheen. *Heart*

This is a very good product, but I wouldn't buy it again. It's too thick coming out of the tube and from now on, I will only use it as a night lip conditioner, but I have never neeeded one before. I still don't need it, but want to use up this balm as it makes my lips super-soft and smells nice, but is annoying to use. So, since I don't need a night conditioner and it's too much of a hassle during the day, I wouldn't buy it again.
These are really nice and not at all expensive, less expensive than the clean and clear. The Clean and Clear are $5 for 50(.10/sht) and these are $11 for 120(.09/sht)
Would be nice if Dove didn't test on animals. Down two lippies.
I am 99% positive this broke me out..... plus it was soooooo greasy, even though it is oil-free. Terrible, cheap, crappy product. Doesn't help that Coppertone tests on animals, which I didn't know when I bought it. Would give it 0 lippies if I could.
