Conditioner -TRESemme - Climate Control Conditioner
gloriaeavalos 1/1/2012 7:21:00 PM
For the most part, look at my review for the corresponding shampoo. However, I feel that the conditioner is the star of this collection and be used either without or with the matching shampoo. Tresemme hasn't let me down much since I started using their products and this one is no exception.
I can't claim if my hair is more resistant to UV rays, but I feel like it lessened the amount of frizz I have. I have straight fine hair, but on humid summer days & some days in winter, my hair gets frizzy. The smell was pleasant and didn't make my hair greasy until a bit past 24 hours from when I last showered. It cleanses the hair well and leaves hair feeling really smooth and soft when used in conjunction with the corresponding conditioner.
This is the one perfume that I haven't gotten tired of (yet). I especially love the citrusy/granny smith apple element and it works for either everyday use or going out, even thought I think it is more of a casual scent.
I'm usually a big fan of TRESemme products, but this wasn't the best one I have from them. It cleaned my hair well, lathered nicely, easy to work with, had a pleasant smell, and wasn't that expensive; however, I didn't feel that it is any better at preventing/stopping breakage than a normal shampoo. I would have thrown it away sooner, but I didn't any of the product to go to waste.
Moisturizers -Clean & Clear - Finishes Mattifying Moisturizer spf 15
gloriaeavalos 7/23/2011 12:29:00 PM
I have really oily skin and this is the only moisturizer I have had good luck with. It really does mattify my face while protecting it from the sun. The sunscreen doesn't even make my skin look or feel more greasy like I have experienced in the past with other lotions. It doesn't provide much moisture, so it's not ideal for people with dry skin. My skin does look lighter b/c of the whitish cast the lotion comes with, but I don't look ghostly unlike other reviewers have mentioned. (I am on the tan side, so that's maybe why. Who knows?) It has a fairly strong fruity floral scent, but I don't mind it. Overall, I love this product and would buy it again. I got mine for around 6 dollars at Wal-Mart, which is well worth trying if you have skin like mine. :)
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

I bought this product b/c of people raving about it on Youtube and that it was made from natural ingredients. I love the feel it has on my lips, how long it lasts, the scent, and it has SPF 15. The only thing I don'r like is the price, but the amount of product you get balances that out.
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Veet's Bladeless Razor hair removal kit
gloriaeavalos 7/10/2011 2:40:00 PM
I used this when I first start removing hair. The concept was great, but like many others, I hated the smell. It gave me good results, but it would make my legs & armpits have irritated red spots. I hated that and I hated not being able to put on deodorant b/c I sweat a lot. I just hated the product and I prefer shaving so much more.
Concealers -Cover Girl - fresh complexion concealer

This concealer had minimal coverage when it came to covering up my dark circles & blemishes. It did brighten up my skin whenever I put it on and it was easy to blend, but it looked cakey on me.
This is the first mascara I have ever tried and it is my HG mascara! It lengthens and defines my lashes and comes off easily with my Almay eye makeup remover pads. Also, it leaves little to no clumps! :D
I love the LashExact by CoverGirl and I wanted to give this a whirl. I didn't notice any volume and it clumped my lashes a lot.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturizing Cream
gloriaeavalos 5/9/2011 2:06:00 AM
I live in Illinois, more closer to Chicago and the winters here are crazy! I would apply this every time I would leave the house and before I go to bed. This cream is great for the wintertime to keep your hands moisturized and dry skin stays at bay. :) I wish they made this in a tube for on the go reapplication.
I love this lotion, especially for the non-winter months! It's moisturizes and absorbs quickly. :)
This was the first acne wash I used when I first started breaking out. It does cleanse & control acne, to an extent, but it's not a cure-all.
Moisturizers -Equate - Naturally Beaming Daily SPF 15 Moisturizer

I will that this is a good moisturizer and didn't irritate my skin, especially for the price. It makes your skin look brighter, but I didn't notice that it evened out my skin. It absorbs quickly, but it makes my skin oilier, once I put it on.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free
gloriaeavalos 5/9/2011 1:43:00 AM
This was my first moisturizer ever and it worked when my skin was combination. The product does what it says it does, pure and simple. It didn't break me out, but when I used this on my (now oily) skin, it makes my face all greasy.
