I just used the black side and it works really well. It doesn't smudge, good coloring, and the good thing is unlike the other brand I've used black is black it doesn't go through as quickly-it lasts longer. The silver part came out awhile ago, but oh well the black part is really good.
I don't know why everyone loves this brush. It made my hair all staticy, tangled, dry, and frizzy. My main complaint is it is too big to handle with the hair dryler, it's like 4 1/2 in. I know I have the older style so maybe it improved a lot, but I donated mine cuz I never use it.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Sun Kissed firming moisturizer light to medium skin (body)

THE SMELL ALONE SHOULD DISCOURAGE ANYONE FROM GETTING THIS PRODUCT. I CAN ONLY USE IT AT NIGHT SO THE SMELL GOES AWAY BY MORNING. AS FAR AS COLORING GOES IT DOES A GOOD JOB, NO STREAKING OR BLOTCHES. IT COMES OUT ALL RUNNY THOUGH AND QUITE FRANKLY COMES OFF AS CHEAPLY MADE.
Scrubs -Softsoap - Moisturizing Body Wash Coconut Scrub

I used this at my sister-in-laws house and smells great. It also is gentle and soft on your skin with mini microbeads to exfoliate. It is a creamy, silky body wash.
Best and gentlest eye makeup remover. It is a great moisturizer for your lashes and has other great uses as well. Good buy for such a cheap price.

First of all this product was supposed to be a free trial, but they tried to charge me and make me keep the product. Anyways I wound up returning most of it. It was overpriced and didn't do crap. Also I stopped using it and threw it out (which I rarely do-hate to waste beauty products) because it was burning my skin and going into my eyes and making them water. I felt like it was doing more harm than good and irritating my skin. Product turned a weird green color after awhile. Pretty much a scam and made me feel like a guinea pig.

I just remember the product being expensive and not doing much. It was a little bit moisturizing and that's about it.

If I recall correctly it was expensive back when I bought it-like 20 bucks. Right now I looked online and it's fairly cheap like 10 bucks. It really does tighten the eye skin area at least for awhile and maybe temporarily reduces wrinkles a little. I don't really have that many wrinkles yet so it's hard to tell how good this works. My main peeve is that I kept the product for awhile since I was using other creams as well and it mostly all dried up and disappeared in the stupid bottle they packaged it in. Other issue is it gets all sticky and hard on my skin like a glue or something. I think I will just stick to a good moisturizer from now on because that helps more.
Shampoo -Pantene - Fine Hair Solutions - Flat to Volume

It really is a so-so product. It really doesn't deliver on the volume, seems like a normal shampoo to be honest. It does leave my hair feeling soft and healthy and smells decent. I think if you buy their cheaper, regular shampoo it would do the same though. It tangles my hair up a lot and is not gentle on my ends.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - SISTINA-ALPHA-BETA CLEANSING LOTION

Its pretty expensive for a small tube. Yes it is drying and did I feel a difference-not really. In fact I had new acne after using it. It has a nice light smell, but the product is just meh.
For the price, you get a ton of product. It really is cleansing and you only need a little bit, but even the one for dry skin is a bit drying. That's probably the only bad part and the smell is pretty strong. Other than that I would say its a good buy. I usually have to use a moisturizer afterwards because it makes my skin tight. It really does work well if you've got acne to dry it up quick.
I noticed my hair felt really greasy wherever I put this product on. At first I thought it was from hair styling products then I realized it was this. It also makes my hair clump up at the ends. It also didn't detangle at all, I prefer biolage to this because I had. to use half the amount to detangle. I wouldn't buy this again it's cheap crap.
One of my fiance favorite perfumes of mine. Very flowery and kind of like a cherry almond smell-if you like cherry almond soap you'll like this. It also is exotic and not too girly, but kind of sexy. I have liked it over several years and would recommend it, don't know where you can still find it, so it's expensive now.
Styling Products -John Frieda - luxurious volume hairspray

Made my hair crunchy and smelling like chemicals. I much rather prefer Big n Sexy hairspray to this. It also doesn't add that much volume, it goes away quick. I don't think I will purchase this again. While Big n Sexy is more expensive but worth it.
I love this stuff! My mother in law and my friend loves it too. It really makes your lashes dramatic and volumizes them, people ask my friend what she is wearing when she uses it. It also lengthens them some too and almost gives the appearance of falsies. This is kind of like Maybelline's Great Lash, but better. I will definitely buy this again.
