This used to be my hg. Today I opened a new bottle and was like hmm, this smells different, then hmm this looks different, the pearliness is gone. Whatever. Then I put it in my hair. Where is all my glorious slippery bubbly lather? Did I buy the wrong ish? I check the bottle. Yup, I got the right stuff, then I see it. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!! It says: "You asked and we listened. Now sulfate-free" Ummm I didn't ask, and it looks like all the positive reviews below mine are for the original formula, and the bleh ones are for the new and unimproved. I am soo angry. I love this line. I have long long long colored hair that I wash every other to every three days or so. This stuff used to clean my hair awesomely. Now it's still all groady, and I used way more product than usual. I am so mad. I wish all you anti-sulfate hippies would stick to your hippy brands and leave a girl's perfectly good hg shampoo alone. UGH!
LOVE this! the sephora website recommended this because I like Blue. It was on the top of my x-mas list before even taking a whiff and I squealed when I opened it on christmas day, just to give you an idea of how much I hyped this stuff up in my head. It did not disappoint! Unlike other scents the rose part of this perfume is noticeable and lasts and lasts. I also like subtle spicyness of this perfume, its uber sexy. I have to admit that it does give me a tiny headache, and I am not sensitive to frangrances in this way, but whatever. We wear high heels and underwire bras and I am willing to bear the pain to smell so good. My favorite EVER, hg fo sho
I love rose scents. Most of the scents I like would be called old lady by my peers. But this is old lady to me. I don't even think it smells like a good old lady either. I wouldn't even recommend this to my worst enemy or her grandmum.
Total crap. There were a few spots in mine where a clump of bristles were glued together. Its like there are 3 hard spiky pieces that hurt my skin. And judging from most of the comments here this company has a problem with consistency and quality and I most likely will never buy anything from them again no matter how cheap it is. Do they have any quality control in place?
Treatments -MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

I'm on the fence about these still, I usually use them at night and when I wake up and look it the mirror, my skin is noticeable smoother, brighter, and post acne discoloration is lightened. but it seems to me that all the effects are temporary. I dont think my skin (or wallet) can handle daily application of this product so I usually use it every 3 nights. By the time is time to apply again my skin looks as if nothing's changed. I wil try to increase application to everyother day and see if I get longer lasting results that way and then update. As of now, I am unwilling to spend this kind of money on a product that I need to use everyday forever for results.
I tried a sample of this and its over-rated natural product hype. The smell is gross, however I'm not hypersensitive to that kind of thing so I would use it if it was effective. but it barely did ish. Coconut oil works better for my hair and is cheaper. I didn't have the problem that other people did washing out, since it was oily I just assumed that I should shampoo 2x because I have to do that with coconut oil, and that was enough. The smell also did not linger in my hair. I do have another sample and try it again. I'll leave in in overnight instead of an hour and update this is results are different.
Lipstick -Make Up For Ever - Rouge Artist Intense #36

I received a sample of this lipstick with a sephora order and am so happy because I don't think I would have tried this line if I didn't. Its a bright fuschia which they say has a satin finish. I dont really agree that its a satin finish, to me it looked like bright pink vinyl on my lips but was surprisingly comfortable to wear. Its applies smooth and opaque and is not drying, however I think it would accentuate any dryness you already have. It wears great under gloss but then you lose that awesome vinyl looking finish. This is an bright fuschia if you dig that sort of thing, but they have a beautiful collection of more wearable colors. I will be getting more!
These are the first brushes that I have ever reviewed. I love them. They are so soft and gorgeous and I will use each brush regularly. The powder brush picks up and distributes powder nicely and does not disturb my foundation, a big problem I have in winter when I have to apply foundation over moisturizer. Its also a smaller size than alot of other powder brushes and find that its easier to use to pick up powder from smaller containers than my huge fluffy powder brushes. The eyeliner brush is good, I use it to apply dry shadows as liner and it makes a crisp clean pigmented line, even with dry shadows. The 2 eyeshadow brushes pick up a lot of color and deposit it where you want it. These work awesome with a few loose eyeshadows that I have had a hard time working with due to weak color payoff and fallout. The one they call a crease brush I think would be very good for cut creases, its flat with a sorta blunt edge, but for my everyday looks I prefer a crease brush with a rounder shape and tapered edge. The fluff brush has longish hairs and is round, and I use it to blend out the outer edges of my crease color. And did I mention they are soft? Cause they are soo soft.
I really like this duo. It's very pigmented and the colors are beautiful. I love how this looks with my hazel eyes. My only complaint is that it doesn't hold up as well on my oily lids as my UD eyeshadows.
I used this for my halloween makeup. I was looking for a matte white thick eye pencil. I applied under my eye and it went on very creamy without tugging my skin. It didn't cake in my fine lines. However, it did transfer to my upper eyelashes when I blinked, but I fixed that with a little white powder over the pencil. It lasted all through my party and looked almost perfect when I got home 7 hours later.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Black Platinum

This nail polish is pretty good. Its a very dark gunmetal with subtle shimmer. Even though it isn't black like the name says, it applies very close to what you see in the bottle. It's a wide brush with a rounded edge which is a plus to me, but I don't like the stick part. I like to wipe the excess polish off the stick in the neck of the bottle. Its wide and flat and due to its shape its awkward. Without base and top coats it lasts at least 5 days and with base and top coats I've only had redo my nails because of tipwear after a whole week. It covers well with 2 coats, but usually touch up with another coat the next day. In general I like this formula just as much my OPIs, and it covers better than a lot of them. But OPI has better colors. Also this polish is pricey for a drugstore brand.
Cleansers -Noxzema - Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Cleanser

I have gone through maybe 4 tubes of this stuff and I love it. I use this with my clarisonic and it foams up nicely and rinses easy. Before I got my clarisonic it took a bit longer to rinse off but still left my skin very clean. It's very creamy and I like it's texture better than all other acne washes I've tried. It hasn't completely cleared my skin but it helps and doesn't dry me out irritate my skin.
This is review is for plain ole neosporin. I use this after I pop a zit. I swab it with H2O2, pierce it with disinfected lance, and squeeze with latex gloves on. Then I dab more H2O2 and then rub in a tiny bit of neosporin. I was scared to try it at first but it works so good. The morning after I use this, I'm usually left with just a flat red mark that is easily concealed with makeup. Sometimes I need to reapply the next day and that takes care of it. It's amazing.
Im not sure how effective this product is because I could not get passed the insane burning and itching. It made sleep impossible, so I always had to wash it off. I was prepared to experience some discomfort from reading other reviews, but it was unbearable. I'm not usually very sensitive to products, so this ish is certainly potent.
