This does absolutely nothing...waste of $$.
Hair -L'Oreal - EverSleek Frizz Taming Creme Serum

Another waste of $$... at least it was cheap! This does nothing for my hair. Tried it on damp hair and blow dried, and also used on hair when dry. The scent is nice, but what's the point if it does nothing else?
This is by far the WORST tinted lip balm I have tried. It's very hard, which makes it really difficult to apply. Once I get it on my lips, it doesn't feel moisturizing at all and has a funky smell & taste. The worst part is that it makes my lips look chapped even when they aren't! I'm very disappointed considering all of the positive reviews, kinda makes you wonder... ;-\
I love my Origins, but this is going back. This is a tinted moisturizer (however much origins want to deny this). For me it was not very moisturizing and just sits on my skin, with a slightly oily film. Tried it out for a few days b/c I really wanted to like it...couldn't use on my forehead at all since it overly accentuated my wrinkles. Normally I can't see my wrinkles too much, but with this they really stood out. Will exchange this.
This looks more pink in the bottle. Even with 2 or 3 coats, still very little pigment. Goes on nice, as does all Essie. If you want a natural clear look, this would work.

This product left my hair very, very dry. It looked dull and still had the frizzies. I used a sample so no $$ lost, just a few bad hair days.
Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Petites Nail Polish in Cabernet

This color looks great on toes. You need a couple of coats. It lasts forever and I don't use a topcoat. If it starts looking ragged I just put on another coat. This is great if you don't want to spend a lot of time on your toes. I tried it on my fingernails, but am not liking as much - looks too red. This is super cheap at WM.

I bought this b/c my ring and pinkie nails had become very soft and kept splitting. I followed the directions and applied this daily, and amazingly it worked! Now I just apply a coat before polish, and my nails are still strong. This dries instantly, which is a huge bonus for me. Also, I recently had on a very dark polish for a couple of weeks. To my surprise the color came off very easily and didn't make a huge mess. This protected my nails from the staining of the dark color.
This polish came in a set (tube) with 2 or 3 other bottles of basic sheers, at Big Lots for cheap. Got it for the sheers and had no intention of using this b/c it looks sparkly in the bottle. Well, I tried it on my toes and loved it. Just put it on my fingers and am loving the color. It's a great option if you want a darker polish, but not the black look (opi lpad). Isn't staying on my tips, but also didn't use a top coat. Probably wouldn't buy again b/c it will last forever and by then will want something else!
Conditioner -SAMY - Esencia by Samy - White Lotus Hydrating Conditioner

Doesn't add any moisture. used the shampoo w/ it and after a couple of weeks my hair was really dry. Left my hair frizzy and fluffy (and not in a good way). Waste of $$.
Love, love, love the scent. Lathers up nicely and my hair feels nice and clean after using this. I rotate this in, since I'm using a "color safe" shampoo on most washes. Wish the reviews were better on the conditioner b/c I'd like to try it as well - just to keep the aroma in my hair.
Just bought this at TJM for $2!! Used to have this color and always loved it, but all my nail polish got lost in a move and hadn't replaced this one yet. So happy I did! Gorgeous color - right combo of white and pink tones for me. Beautiful pearly white with a hint of pink, with a nice shimmer. I didn't have a problem with streaking like some of the other reviews. First, I put on NTF II, then a coat of "happily ever after" (had to try it - got it for $3), then 1 coat of "east hampton cottage". It looks great, just enough opaque - doesn't look thick. Get it!
Bought this after reading rave reviews on MUA...but disappointed. The color is so nude/sheer! Even after 3 coats! It goes on kind of thick too, and takes a while to dry. Will try this as a top coat to freshen up manicure. I love Essie and will continue to be loyal to the brand.
This conditioner works great as a detangler, it smells good, and it's dirt cheap. However, I need more moisture for my dry damaged hair and it doesn't deliver.
I'm loving this cleanser. It easily removes all my eye make-up and is super gentle, could open my eyes while cleansing. Probably would not recommend for those with oily skin or acne though. Should be great for this winter when my skin gets a little dry.
