I really hate this stuff. I have naturally wavy, FRIZZY hair. Putting this in my hair made me look like I had an afro of frizz. Not the most attractive look. I usually use this when my hair is half up, because the bottom half of my hair is not as frizzy as the top. The spray also clogs super easily and it took me a long time to unclog it. Rawr. I will not be repurchasing.

I had such high hopes for this product... Okay, well it's not terrible. I don't really mind the scent, but it doesn't really do much. It reduces frizz a bit, but not considerably. I also had to use TONS of it to see a difference. Not really worth trying.

Okay.. so when I had long hair (about 8 inches past my shoulders) this stuff was FANTASTIC. I have wavy/curly hair that is a bit spazzy. Sometimes it's really curly and sometimes it's just wavy. I don't understand it either. Usually I'd put a good sized amount in my towel dried hair. Then about half an hour later, I'd put in another good sized amount. This would result in practically frizz-free, smooth, gorgeous hair. Unfortunately, I got my hair cut and now it barely brushes my shoulders. The curls and the waves don't form for some reason with my shorter hair, so this did nothing. My hair just dries all weird and not quite straight but not quite wavy. I'm still looking for a good product!
I've been using this shampoo for three years now. It's not amazing, but it's the only thing I've ever found that helps with my dandruff. It never really got rid of it, but it does keep it under control. It smells wonderful and doesn't make my hair greasy. It's also really cheap. Overall, it's pretty good. Not incredible, not fantastic, but pretty good. I have no complaints.

This conditioner is orange. Honestly, how much cooler could it get? I have the formula for thick hair, and I love it. It doesn't weigh down my hair, it doesn't make my hair greasy, and it moisturizes really well. What else could you possibly want in a conditioner? Okay, so it doesn't really have a scent.. but I can live without that.
This stuff is amazing. My hair used to be so dry and nasty... and now it's unbelievably soft! It's so exciting!! The scent is INCREDIBLE, the packaging is clever, and it works so well! I've recommended this to tons of my friends, and they've all loved it too.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Fresh Look Pressed Powder ] [DISCONTINUED]

This is nice powder. Nothing fancy, but it works. I find that I have to reapply a lot during the day, but I do have really oily skin, so I'm assuming that's normal? I might try a new kind of powder in the future, but I was pretty happy with this one,
I had been using The Body Shop blush for a few years and I was kind of tired of paying ten dollars for blush. I took the remains of my old blush and headed to the drug store to pick out a new one that was the same shade. I ended up getting this blush, and the colors matched almost perfectly. It was wonderfully cheap and I couldn't tell the difference between the three dollar blush and the ten dollar blush. The packaging is also nice and simple.

I was so disappointed with this product. I thought it was going to be incredible and cover up all of my acne.. and it didn't really do anything. It was ridiculously expensive for the (extremely small) amount of coverage it provided. The packaging was also rather annoying, it liked to burst all over the place. I eventually gave up and started using it as under-eye concealer. It works much better this way. Oh, and it didn't look natural at all! You could totally tell that I was wearing foundation, which is why I usually don't bother. I switched to just using regular pressed powder, and I'm much happier now.
I love Featherlash Mascara. It's amazing! I'm almost finished with my fourth tube, and I'm about to get another one in a week or so. It doesn't clump hardly at all until it starts getting old. I throw mine out about every three or four months. I just wipe the wand on a tissue to get rid of the excess mascara, and then apply. It's a staple for me. I've tried higher end mascaras, but this one has been better than all of them. I've tried Lancome and Clinique.. but they made my lashes so clumpy and gross! I highly recommend this mascara.
I have mixed feelings towards this product. I like it, but I don't really know how much it does for my skin. I've had constant acne since I was about 12 years old, and I decided to try this mask because of all the great things I heard about it. I wasn't necessarily disappointed, but I don't think it did a lot. I really like the minty tingle, and I think it does help make my skin less oily. I don't know if does anything for my acne though.
I love this lip balm. I honestly do. I've been using it for at least three or four years now, and it's amazing. It smells nice, it tingles pleasantly, and the moisturizing is wonderful. I would totally recommend Burt's Bees to anyone and everyone.
