I also found this at Target for about $3 (23 fl oz) a bottle First off, I've never really been an advocate for herbal essences haircare line. I've always seen it on sale and thought it was just another cheap shampoo and conditioner. However, I saw the commercial and decided to give it a try. I was wrong... This shampoo and conditioner is AMAZING! I wash my hair every 2-3 days, so I need a really good shampoo and conditioner to help untangle and refresh my hair. My first impression was "wow" this smells amazing. I did shampoo twice, to make sure my hair was really clean. My hair felt silkier after washing. I followed with the conditioner and I have to say the magic is in the CONDITIONER! My hair felt so silky and soft when applying the conditioner! I left it in for the remainder of the shower and rinsed it off at the end (applying a pea sized amount as a leave-in conditioner). My hair dried wonderfully, actually shinier and frizz-free if you can believe that (even without using my trusty Biosilk). I guess great hair does start in the shower.THE SMELL LASTS HOURS AFTER SHOWER!!! This has definitely become my miracle product, I can't wait to try the leave-in treatment! Give It a try, for the price it's a steal. I hope this works for you as much as it did for me!
I use it everyday, and if you put enough and give it enough time to dry, its a perfect eyeshadow base... I even like it better than UD primer potion, I can use more and it lasts longer! I think it works the same or even better than UD primer potion! love it worth $1.. esp. good for those starting w/ makeup!
I just started using bronzer and this is the best! It doesn't look fake or orange just a nice sun-kissed color! if your looking for a simple travel friendly bronzer get this one! I don't use the mini brush that comes with it, I use my bonzer elf brush and works beautifully gives me nice color! I use medium to dark. Its winter now so my asian skin is about medium, not yet tan.. I know some people don't like the packaging but I don't mind it, i think its durable!
This is the best moisturizer for my oily skin! it goes on so light and fresh and absorbs fast! If you have oily skin and need a moisturizer thats light and simple not heavy- YOU NEED THIS! When I went to NJ i accidentally left it in the hotel room, It came as a free gift so I wasn't terribly disappointed. im looking for an alternative.. I think ULTA has one I might try. If you can afford to just purchase this from pro activ please do you won't regret it, mine was the 2.5 oz bottle which lasted pretty long!
I love shimmer and use this palette everyday. I use it for traveling. The colors are beautiful and pigmented. Mine came with the brush instead of the eyeliner b/c I got mine late! It's about $50, I love it but If i ever lost it, I don't think I'd go out and buy another one... There are so many dupes out there! If your looking for a comparable palette just google "urban decay naked palette dupes."
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar

I LOVE LOVE THIS! I had horrible acne on my entire face chin, forehead,cheeks... I started using this after I had gone through so many drugstore scrubs/washes, claiming to clear my acne but they only irritated it and did nothing to cure it..My aunt recommended it and It's the best thing ever! I do have oily skin (esp. in the summer I have extremely oily skin, which is when I began using this) and although It says its for dry sensitive skin, It works for me! I use it with my acne medication (clindamycin solution and retin A generic version and anitbacterial pills). I have one in my shower and near my sink.. It melts a whole lot faster in the shower but the one by my sink lasts months! I just place it in a soap dish that you can stick to the wall- got mine at walmart for a few dollars) and It lasts and stays clean.. The bars also come in packs of four our five for like $15? it's worth it! P.S if you are struggling with acne GO TO THE DERMATOLOGIST it really helps, I spent probably 100's of dollars looking for the perfect face wash, toner, moisturizer when it was all a waste! Go to the professionals, Its worth it. my clindamycin solution is only $35, retin A generic is only $40 at most and the pills are $4! all at walmart! about $80 total for lasting results!
(Before blow drying my hair) I use it everyday in conjunction with my frizz cream (garnier frutis leave in conditioner) I take a little of the leave in, rub my hands together and put it through my hair, than I take two tiny squirts of the hair serum, rub my hands together and apply to my hair from my ears down *focusing more on the ends! I would buy again because, It lasts a long time while using it everyday and I also blow dry plus straighten or curl my hair everyday and its still healthy and shiny!

I use this as a brow gel with my brow brush to shape my brows! I love it and is a reasonable price for a huge bottle vs the tiny tubes of brow gel people normally buy, this will last forever! I will definitively buy again, if i ever need to (; I also want to start using this as a facial moisturizer, will update in a week or 2!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner

I really like this eyeliner! I use it everyday on my WATERLINE...For me it stays a whole school day! *Applying it from 7:20am and lasting till 5:10pm! You do have to check for a little smudging throughout the day, but it's not a problem- just take a wet paper towel/lotion and swipe under your eyes and your good! I also have oily lids/skin, and wear contacts and when I started out applying this to my waterline I was terrible at it...A tone got in my eyes, I looked very scary, but you just have to take out your contacts and rinse them with solution and allow eyeliner to dry before putting them back in. When I get it in my eye, It doesn't hurt- I just blink multiple times till all the eyeliner is on my lower waterline then wipe it off with lotion and a towel. paid $4<3
