if you apply too much of this it will make your hair crunchy and wet-looking. however, it does define curls and will make your hair shiny and hold down that frizz. and if you apply too much , just add a bit of leave-in conditioner. this is good for curly hair (think shakira) looks that i will use this for. definitely worth a try for girls with frizzy curly hair like mine.
great for the money ($3 at target) i use this to apply (stipple on) my MUFE face & body foundation. it goes on beautifully and doesn't suck up all of the product. it takes a while to dry if you do a thorough washing, but i spray mine everyday with a cleanser spray concoction i made and brush the excess product off and it dries within a few hours. will definitely repurchase, but that'll be in years at the rate this brush is holding up.
HG tweezers! i've had many drug store tweezers, but none compare to tweezerman. they're definitely worth the price. i've had mine for 2 years and they are still sharp and precise. i use them everyday and they will grab even the shortest hairs. I RECOMMEND THIS! (i have the cute Betsy Johnson tweezers with pink roses on them btw)

i got a sample of this product. it does hydrate and keep my eye area soft for a of couple hours, but it's nothing special and for the price it's not worth it. this is comparable to any drug store brand. it has not helped with the small dry bumps under my eyes. i wanted to like this but i'm also glad i didn't find it so amazing as to spend so much on it. wouldn't recommend
I have the fusion proglide. I've had it for about 2 years and i think it's the best razor i've had to date. mind you i'm a girl. i use it for pretty much every part of my body that grows hair, and the blade will last me a max of two weeks. which is extremely good for someone who shaves very often. definitely worth a try and you can get the razors in bulk at costco for a reasonable price

this makes me feel like the fat German kid in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory who fell in the chocolate river. and let me tell you, I LOVE IT! i am a chocoholic and this is a dream. my only wish is that the scent would stay with me after the shower. sadly to say, i do not think i will repurchase this, only because i can't afford this every month (it was a gift (: )
I've been using this for about 5 years. after i shave i tend to sweat a little more than usual, but this really works as an antiperspirant and the smell is terrific. also, it lasts all day. (but i don't sweat a lot so i can't speak for those who tend to be sweatier than average, sorry gals)
at first i loved this perfume. i think the smell is great. a light beachy smell that seemed to really suit me. however, within one hour it was completely gone. i went through this perfume pretty fast because of how short-lasting it is. if you are the kind of person who enjoys spraying perfume ever 15 minutes then go for it. otherwise, don't bother. sorry jenn
this was my first mascara when i was about 14. even though i'd had no experience with makeup back then i knew this was not good mascara. it hardly applied at all and then when you put one too many coats in an attempt to look normal, it was just clumpy! still my least favorite mascara after almost a decade. don't get this

LOVE THIS! i wasn't willing to pay for a whole spray bottle of this so i got the travel set, which is a great deal. you get .75 oz (.25 oz non-spray dabber bottle and .5 oz refill) for $30, which is a much better deal than the smallest .68 oz spray bottle for $50. i got this at sephora after getting a sample. this stuff is amazing. it smells floral and sweet and lasts all day. my fave
I've been using this everyday for about a month under my makeup. I think it's very good, definitely works as a sunscreen. It prevents my face from tanning. It does sting a little around the eyes when first applied, but nothing i can't handle. If you're putting makeup on after this i would wait 15-20 minutes for it to sink in. I'm not sure i could repurchase this however, only because i would like to try other products. But, i think this is definitely reliable.
who doesn't love this stuff? a friend of mine used a moisturizer which caused an allergic reaction, making her face swollen and red, she went straight to the dermatologist who told her that the only hypoallergenic noncomedogenic skincare product is vaseline. and that it is really the only product on the market that can reliably help keep your skin moisturized. that being said, i love this stuff. i use it as a nightly moisturizer and on my cuticles and other dry parts. its great. and now they sell an adorable mini jar at target so you can keep it in your purse!

HG for everything. i use this on my lips before lipstick, as a every-other-night face moisturizer, on my elbows, heels, you name it! great stuff. never breaks me out, just moisturizes like a BOSS! i would die without this!
i have the car freshener of this scent and it's uhhh-mazing! i feel like i'm sitting on a private beach under swaying palms with a warm breeze brushing my face and clear waters lapping at my feet while drinking a pina colada with a hot guy catering to my every whim, when in fact i'm sitting on the 405 freeway trying to ignore all the douchers cutting me off on my way home. must try/smell/burn this if you love the beach and everything that comes with it.
a little goes a long way. i used to straighten my hair way too often and noticed that on the days when i rubbed a dab of this in i would get compliments up the wazoo! don't use too much though or you'll look like a greasy bum. this will last a long time. i'm almost half way through the smallest bottle of this and i've owned it for over half a year. awesome stuff to give that natural shine and a nice soft finish.
