Powder -Pur Minerals - 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (new formula)

Would not recommend this product if you have acne-prone skin. I developed white heads and cystic acne all over my forehead and cheeks... It was horrible and took months to heal. The packaging looks cheap and you don't get your money's worth for the amount of product you receive. The only thing I liked about this foundation was the medium to full coverage. I will be going back to Bare Minerals.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink

This is the best gel eyeliner I've used and I've been wearing eyeliner daily for about 10 years. This product is creamy and applies easily, never tugging at the skin. what I like most is the fact that is really does last all day even if you manage to get your face wet. A great alternative is The L'Oreal Super liner 24H Waterproof gel eyeliner.
Hair -Unlisted Brand - MACADAMIA Natural Oil - Healing Oil Treatment

I've used Moroccan oil in the past and I definitely prefer Macadamia oil. It's cheaper, works just as well and smells better. I have been using this product for over a year and Have noticed a difference. My hair is very long (almost reaches my belly button), it has been bleached many times and I use heat styling tools on a regular basis... It's gone through hell and back so you can imagine the state that my hair was in. Macadamia oil has restored the shine and prevented split ends. I've also tried Argan oil but found that it did not perform as well as this product.
I have been using this foundation in Medium Beige on and off for 5 years. I find that this foundation only looks great when my skin is free from scarring and acne. It also causes massive breakouts during so summer so I only use it in the colder months. I'm also not too fond of the packaging - it's messy and annoying to carry around in my purse. With that being said, I will definitely be trying the READY foundation. This foundation also leaves my T-zone very shiny. However, I like this foundation because it can be applied quick and easily, the coverage is pretty decent, the price is reasonable, and the product will last a long time even with everyday use. I will continue to repurchase this product until I find my holy grail foundation.
Shampoo -Wen by Chaz Dean - Cleansing Conditioners - All

I purchased the 90-day supply Of the cleansing conditioner in Sweet Almond Mint for $90 CAD. I was hesitant at first but decided to try Wen after hearing from a friend that it had reduced fallout. After finishing 2 bottles, I can honestly say that this product did absolutely nothing but leave my long, chemically-treated hair feeling dry. What I do like about Wen is that it's free from harsh chemicals. It is however, very difficult to massage into the hair and you need quite a bit of product. The instructions also recommend to work it into the scalp for about 10 minutes. On a positive note, the pump that comes with the cleanser is great. What doesn't work for me might work for you so I suggest ordering the 30-day supply first.
My hair has been thinning drastically over the past eight months and I thought I've give this product a try. Fyi,I have long chemically treated brown hair that rests nearly past my breasts. I've taken one pill a day of 1000 mcg Nature's Bounty Biotin for about a month and I noticed my nails become longer with less breakage, hair looks healthier and has already grown a little more than an inch. This product stimulates hair growth all over the body so be prepared to shave your legs more frequently, wax facial hair.. etc. Unfortunately, I have decided to discontinue taking this vitamin due to horrible breakouts. However, I am more than willing to try a different brand that doesn't have such negative effects on the skin.
