Love this one and have used it for a couple of years. I have a lot of blonde highlights in my brown hair and I don't want to overwash my expensive color. I have read numerous reviews about people having this product leak and evaporate but I have never had this happen. It isn't cheap but it works for me and allows me to wash my hair every 3rd day as oppossed to daily. I shake this product well and let it set for a few minutes before I brush it through. I have to brush it through really well and I don't have any problems with the "white powder effect." It smells much nicer than most dry shampoos. Love this one! It does the job and doesn't damage my hair.
Ok! I don't say this lightly but.....I feel that this is the worst hair product that I have ever used. It made my hair look dull and greasy. Not a good look. I also didn't care for the smell. I have never had a dry shampoo leave my hair looking and feeling greasier. Epic fail of mass proportions! Tossed it.
Chocalate and peppermint dream in a bottle. This is the perfect Christmas body wash. The color is fun and I love to bubble bath with this. Not too bubbly and drying but it smells great and the gentle bubbles are lovely. This one never lasts long for me because I use it every day until the bottle is empty. Love it!
Loving it! This is a pretty sheer red gloss and the pepperminty smell/taste is heavenly. My favorite Christmas lip gloss. Not overly sparkly but just right over lipstick or for a pretty sheer look when you wear it alone. Leaves my lips soft and kissable too!
Lip Gloss -Philosophy - Lip Shine - Marshmallows For Toasting

Not a fan. This is a sticky lip gloss and it has a funny smell/taste which is nothing like a toasted marshmallow, in my opinion. The gloss is a pretty delicate pink shimmer but the smell/taste and gloppy texture kill this one for me. Tossed it!
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Mega Shine Top Coat

Not so much on this one. The one pro is that it dries fast but the negatives include the bottle which keeps you from being able to tell how much product is left, it isn't the most expensive but I have bought $1.00 products which are way better, and the final, kiss of death, is that it causes my beautiful polish to peel after only a day or so. Not at all happy with this product but I will say that Sally Hansen has an overall great product line.
Love this stuff. I have dry skin and this brand of argan oil really helps my skin stay moist and younger looking. These pads are great and I use them about three times a week to take off my makeup and add some moisture to my skin. The argan oil capsules from this line are wonderful as well.
This is a pretty color that looks different on than in the bottle. It's a frosty beigy pink that's my go to color for my toes. With a good top coat I can easily get a week or or longer of good wear out of this polish. It applies smoothly and I love it!!!
Styling Products -Kenra - Platinum Finishing Hairspray 26

Great hairspray. I use the working spray from Kenra as my everyday spray but when I need extra control and hold I use this one. It smells nice and works the best at taming and holding the style of my hair of any hairspray that I have ever used, and I think I've tried just about everything. As I said, I use this only when I really need extra hold, on windy and rainy days and on special occassions. This one does make the hair a little scrunchy but, in my opinion, it's worth it because it really holds and lasts. I love the Kenra line!
Great hairspray. It smells nice and it gives my hair volume and hold without feeling scrunchy. This is my everyday spray and a large can goes a long way. I am in love with this line of products.
Styling Products -Kenra - platinum silkening gloss
lilylou40 2/25/2012 4:55:00 PM
This silkening gloss was my introduction to the Kenra line and I really love their products. I have highlighted hair and, at times, it can get dull and dry looking so my stylist turned me on to this and I purchased the 2.2 oz bottle a couple of years ago. I use it once a week or so and a little bit goes a looong way. My hair is just below my sholuders and I only use a drop on the ends and am careful not to put it within a couple inches of my scalp because it will make my scalp oily if I apply it to the scalp area and my hair tends to be on the dryer side. I pump out maybe a dot the size of a quarter of a dime and then blow dry. The smell is a dream and somewhere between strawberries and cotton candy. As an added benefit this product makes my hands feel so soft and silky after I apply it to my hair. Just remember that a little goes a long way. I am still on my first bottle which I bought two years ago in April.

I used to use this all the time but then it disappeared from the shelves of my local drug stores and big box stores. It does a wonderful job of exfoliating my skin and I am sooo happy that I found this wonderful product on amazon and ordered several packages. The small daily pufs are wonderful as well.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Lippin' Large Lip Plumper- Plum Tart
lilylou40 2/25/2012 4:18:00 PM
This stuff really works! It does noticeably make my lips look fuller. The color is lovely and the price is great. It does cause your lips to tingle but it's a pleasant sensation. This is now my lip gloss of choice!!
I have been in love with this fragrance for a couple of years. It is sweet and the cotton candy and vanilla really stand out in this one. It's my signature scent and it wears well on me and always garners compliments. If you aren't into sweet frangrances then I don't recommend it but for those, like me. who gravitate to this sort of fragrance it is a real gem.
OPI has a great line of nail colors and this beautiful pink has now become my favorite. This is a girly pink with lots of silver sparkles. It just doesn't get any better than this for me. On my pink-o-meter this is a 10!! Many sparkle polishes are a pain to remove but this one isn't too bad. Staying power is very good when paired with a good top coat. Sally Hansen is my top coat of choice. This polish just screams "Spring" to me. Love it!
