Wowww wut a disappointment!!!! This shampoo made my hair sooooo dry and tangled. I had to follow up with a moisturizing mask because I was afraid of the damage it might have caused. The conditioning balm works wonders so I thought the shampoo would do the same. Boy was I wrong! I will definitely not be rebuying this. Nor do I recommend.
Although this did not work for me because of the high fragrance, I still would consider this a good drugstore sunscreen. It did not make my skin feel greasy but my face did have a little sheen to it (nothing powder cant fix). I did not use it long enough to see if it helps with age spots but some of the ingredients look promising. I would recommend but if your sensitive to scents in your skin care products like I am, I would stay away. I gave it an extra lippie for the packaging because it is so secure and great for traveling, plus its a pretty green color.
Cleansers -Boots - expert sensitive gentle cleansing wash

Sad to say but this was not a win for me. I used it a couple of times and it just made my face feel dry, not tight but dry and weird feeling (eventhough my skin is oily). I should have known though because some of the ingredients usually don't agree with my skin. I did give it two lippies because it takes off makeup pretty well. I will not repurchase and honestly this cleanser should not have "gentle" in its name. Would not recommend.
Mascara -Rimmel - Magnif'Eyes Eye Magnifier Eye Opening

I absolutely LOVE this mascara. This is the only mascara that have given my lashes a WOW factor. I like the fact that the wand has two rows of short spikes for thickening and two rows of long spikes for lengthening and the plastic bristles gets into every lash and corner. I usually use this mascara whenever I wear eye makeup or when I want a dramatic look to my eyes. Don't let it get into your eyes though because it does sting and can become bothersome. Nevertheless, I still love it and I have recommended to almost everyone I know.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Mascara - Blackest Black

Just finished a tube of this and I have to say I like it. My lashes are thick but short and these lenghten and curl them so beautifully and keeps them soft and conditioned. I also like that no matter how much I might get into my eye, it does not irritate me. And the packaging is so cute that it makes me want to apply my mascara in public. It can clump at times but I just remove the excess gunk on a tissue before I apply. This is my everyday mascara and I will be repurchasing very soon.
These are the first makeup remover wipes I ever tried and they are my favorite. They are well saturated and really do a good job at cleansing off my makeup. At times they do make my eyelids sting but that is minor to what these babies can do. I store them upside down which helps them from drying out. I got my sister hooked on these and I have repurchased several times.
Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Oatmeal and Shea butter

Tried this for the first time when my sister came to visit and I fell in love! The texture is so creamy and really moisturizes my skin and the smell is so sweet and heavenly. I might branch out and try the other scents. I have repurchased twice already. Highly recommend.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Body Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion for Dry Skin

I am not sure why everyone likes this but this sucked for me. It was nothing special and actually didn't do a great job at moisturizing (I had to mix it with vaseline). There are much better lotions out there. I wouldn't repurchase.
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads
jodeygtaylor 11/11/2009 10:42:00 PM
Eh! They need to reformulate this product or something because it doesn't do much. I mean the first time you open it, its all dried out. The only good thing is that it IS gentle but that's it because it takes about two pads to attempt to get my eye makeup off. I would never repurchase. Waste of time.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
jodeygtaylor 11/11/2009 10:38:00 PM
These wipes cleaned my face really, really well. They are very wet so one sheet takes off all my makeup (including my eyes). The reason I stopped using them is because they can be a little irritating depending on what skin care products I am using at the time but they are still one of my favorite wipes and I would repurchase.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub
jodeygtaylor 11/11/2009 10:33:00 PM
I should have known when my sister gave this to me something was wrong.lol. This scrub gave me the worst breakout I have seen in a long time. At first I thought it was just purging my skin but after 2 weeks I realized that my skin did not likey :/ However, I did give it 2 lippes for how smooth it got my skin but I would not repurchase nor would I recommend. Thanx sis!
Cleansers -Garnier - Nutri-Pure Detoxifying Wet Cleansing Towelettes Oil-Free
jodeygtaylor 11/11/2009 10:25:00 PM
This pretty much gets the job done when I need to remove my makeup. The reason I like them is because they do not irritate my skin, they are not overly wet, and they are cheaper than my top fav (Mac wipes). These are also great for those hot summer days when you need to jus clean your face but have no time or place to wash it. I would repurchase.
I am soooo disappointed with this serum. I have read such great reviews and now that I have tried it, I really don't understand the hype! It did nothing to even out my skin tone. It caused alot of clogged pores and made my face more oily. I don't mind paying money for skin care products but paying for something that doesn't do anything? That's just crazy. So to anyone who is thinking about trying this product, I would definitely think twice. I would never recommend.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 45 with Helioplex
jodeygtaylor 11/1/2009 11:07:00 AM
I really wanted to keep using this but it made my skin look like chicken grease.lol.The minute I put it on I had to use blotting papers within 30 minutes. It was also causing cystic acne (which I rarely get). I did give it 2 lippies because it gave me great protection and I hardly tan with it on but I had to let it go. Maybe this will be good for dry skin individuals but I wouldn"t recommend to oily or acne-prone skin types.
I can't say I loved this product but I can say it was worth a try. I bought it to help some blemishes on my shoulders and back but failed to clear them up. I can say though that this was not drying and it did help my armpits from sweating excessively in the summer.LOL. Nevertheless, I wouldn't buy again.
