Styling Products -Beyond The Zone - Turn Up the Heat

I am on my 3rd bottle of this product. I have tried many flat iron sprays ranging from $25+ a bottle. This product is much less expensive and provides the same quality results. This product works great on the ends of my hair as a flat iron protectant. I have color damaged hair from bleaching,so my ends are basically fried. This spray provides my hair with moisture without making it greasy and leaves my hair feeling smooth and less damaged. I have never applied it to my entire head because I have naturally oily hair. But it works great on my ends.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Full Repair Full Body Shampoo

I purchased this Shampoo after experience great results from the Full Body Conditioner. However, I feel that the shampoo does nothing for my hair and actually is a little bit too oily for my hair. I have had better results from using a different shampoo with the Full Body Conditioner. Therefore, I do not recommend this shampoo. (However, the Full Body Conditioner works great).
Conditioner -John Frieda - Full Repair Full Body Conditioner

I have been using this conditioner for almost a year now. Everytime I switch to another condition I almost always regret it. I have damaged over-processed hair from a bad bleach job and too much heat. JF Full body conditioner is the only conditioner that leaves my hair (especially my ends) feeling smooth. After just one use I noticed a dramatic difference in my hair. I would (and do) recommend this product all the time as a great conditioner. I do not like the shampoo that goes with this conditioner. I find that the shampoo leaves my hair a little too oily.
Moisturizers -Ponds - Ponds Nourishing Moisturizing Cream

I purchased Pond's moisturizing cream after experiencing such great results from Pond's cold cream. I find this to be a good moisturizer. However, because I have oily skin I do not think I can use it on a daily basis. I rated this cream a 3 because I do not like jar packaging because I feel that constantly dipping your hand in the jar causes unnecessary bacteria in the jar. However, this effectively moisturizes your skin, has a light smell, and does not cause breakouts.
Ponds works great not only as a makeup remover but also as a great cleanser to use throughout the week. After using Ponds my skin feels dewy, soft and looks and feels smoother than normal. I have acne-prone skin. Pond's cold cream does not make my skin break out. I have not used it for more than 2 consecutive days in a row, therefore, I do not know how it work with continued long term use. However, Pond's is great to use at least once a week to make ur skin smooth, soft, and moisturized. I took away a lipstick because I do not like jar packaging leaves it susceptible to bacteria.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I bought this product yesterday. I have oily, acne prone skin and needed a moisturizer that would prevent too much oil being produced. I used this product before I went to bed and when I woke up my skin was soft and not super oily as it usually is. I also used the gel in the morning and noticed that it does decrease the amount of oil my face usually produces. However, i still find my face to be somewhat oily. I will continue using the product because so far it has worked better than most moisturizers I have purchased.
I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. Many products leave my skin irritated or feeling tight. However, after using Purpose cleanser, my skin felt fresh and soft. It was not tight and did not cause any further breakouts.
Treatments -MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

I purchased the pack of 5 and found that after using this product, my face had more of a glow to it, felt smoother, and helped diminish my acne scars. It did not work any wonders, however it does seem to exfoliate the skin nicely. After running out of the product, I purchased the Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel and found that this gave me small bumps that many reviewers seem to complain of. Therefore, I would recommend the Alpha Beta Peel but not the Extra Strength formula.
