Deodorants -Dove - Ultimate Clear Sensitive Skin Deodorant

I love it, I wish it lasted all day! I find it lasts for about 12 hours max. That being said, it's the only non-scented anti-perperant I trust so far. *edit* The kind I have is called "Dove Sensitive Skin Invisible Solid." I'm assuming it's similar.
I'm assuming this is for the "radiant silk invisible stick" deoderant. I enjoy the scent and it lasts all day. Perfect :) I wish I could find it in travel size!

I like cliniderm shampoo, but I'm not a huge fan of the conditioner, mainly because I don't like the smell. My boyfriend says, "it just smells clean, like nothing," but I don't feel the same way. Also, you have to use a lot to get good results. I will continue to use it on work days because it is nice to have a non-irritating conditioner, but on weekends I wanna smell good!

I have purchased this twice. My hair comes out clean with no residue. Regular shampoo causes eczema on my back and this does not. This also seemed to solve my unsolveable dandruff. The only thing I don't like is the smell (so I took off a lippie), but what can you expect from a fragrance free shampoo.

I like this brush better than the cheap ones I've tried. It is good for blush and powder. I have had it for a couple years and have not noticed shedding, but I am a light user. I will use quo for all my make-up brushes from now on.
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion

I wouldn't recommend this for sensitive skin because the fragrence is very strong. It also contains a paraben preservative which may be linked to breast cancer, but the jury is still out on that. I will probably just use it occasionally on my legs until it is used up. I imagine this would be a perfect product for people with non-sensitive dry skin who enjoy a strong frangrance.

We don't have much choice as consumers when it comes to semi-perminant dye, so we're lucky this is an excellent product! I have used the dark brown over my med-brown a couple times. Roots aren't an issue because by the time my hair is grown enough, the dye has faded :) I also made my DIY highlights too light once and (as per the advice of my hairdresser sister) used a blonde shade as a toner. The colour came out great and it nourished where the bleach had dried!
Me and my roommate both love this scent!

Use sparingly! I think biosilk is a bit nicer.
It is kind of cakey and powdery, but I think that's the point. It evens out skin tone beautifully. It is not good for day-time all-over coverage. It is good for photos and night-time. I use this with the sponge it came with mainly to reduce redness under my nose. I also use it under-eye when I am too lazy to use a liquid concealer, but it magnifies wrinkles more than liquid concealer does.
I simply love this lotion. I use it daily on my face and body. People with normal skin probably won't notice anything exceptional about it, but for my dry sensitive skin it is perfect. 1) It doesn't ever sting (!) 2) Moisturizes well 3) Pump bottle and consistancy make for easy application 4) It's unscented and doesn't smell "medical" like some other unscented stuff does. Cetaphil hit the nail on the head yet again. I use their cream as well on extra dry areas.
This cream is great. I use cetaphil lotion everwhere and this cream on places that are extra dry (including face sometimes). It reduces my eczema and doesn't sting my sensitive skin like 99% of other moisturizers out there. I have already repurchased twice. HG!
I have wavy hair that straightens easily. This stuff is ok... PROS: Reduces frizz, not greasy CONS: Doesn't straighten much Not worth the price tag imo. I can do without it.
