Self Tanners -Jergens - Natural Glow -- Medium-Tan

Love this stuff. I'm a paper-white girl, who likes to look tan in the summer, without the skin damage. I purchased this to use during the week to help keep the color between my weekend sunless tanning session. I have been very pleased with this product! Keeps me evenly dark, and it has no tanner smell! I tried this on it's own (no other tanner), and I believe it works best as an in-between. But either way, give it a shot! And don't waste your time with the light to medium, unless you aren't looking to be noticeably darker.
Hair Removal -Nair - brazilian spa clay body cream

Holy. Crap. This product has BLOWN ME AWAY! My arm hair was an embarrassment for most of my life. Long, dark hair with pale skin. It was always noticeable, and I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to shave due to stubble, and due to some moles, I was scared to wax. So for years I did nothing. Until now. Tonight on a whim, I purchased this product. I haven't used hair removal cream in years, and I hoped that maybe the product had improved, but sorta doubted it. Little did I know... I applied the cream to my arms, avoiding the moles (just in case), and waited 8 minutes. Consider the hair was so long and never removed before, I went for the max time. Right before I started to wipe the cream off, I thought "This was probably a mistake. I'll have to shave all the hair it didn't get." Needless to say I almost fell over from shock when I wiped, and ALL OF THE HAIR CAME OFF. ALL OF IT. NO SHAVING OR PLUCKING NEEDED! I will never go without this product again. I'm so excited, as soon as I finished washing my arms, I turned on the computer and wrote this review. Please try this product if you need to remove unwanted hair! I do recommend that if you have stubborn hair, leave it on for 5 to 8 minutes (max time). It didn't cause any discomfort, and actually smells pretty all right, and I couldn't be more ecstatic! Thank you, Nair!!!
This product is absolutely unbelievable and I will continue using this until the day I die. I currently use the shampoo from this line, then I apply this treatment. I have hair past my shoulder blades that I'm still growing out. I'm determined to keep it healthy, and I believe this stuff will do it for me. I use it as my regular conditioner, and I never experience buildup. It has good slip and detangles my hair like a dream. After leaving in for five to ten minutes, rinsing with warm water, then doing a cold rinse, the result is smooth, frizz free, and shiny shiny shiny hair. I can't believe how strong my hair feels. Please try it! You will not regret it!!!
Love, love, love it! It's a great shampoo. Doesn't leave your hair a tangled mess. I saturate my hair with water really well, then get a dime sized amount in my hands. I apply this shampoo just to my roots and suds really well. It smells good, and doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped. Finally, I rinse really well and let the suds run down the length of my hair. The result is hair I can still get my fingers through, and ends that aren't dried out. Give it a shot!
I've only used this product twice, and I love it. I have hair past my shoulder blades that I'm determined to keep healthy as I continue to grow it out. I picked this up based on reviews, and I'm so glad I did! I like the flip top of the container, and it's easy to get the product out (the smell is all right). After shampooing my hair, I saturate my hair with this conditioner. I clip it up and finish the rest of my shower, trying to keep this stuff in as long as possible. I rinse with warmish water, then do a cold rinse. The result is smooth, silky, SHINY, gorgeous hair! I use this once a week, and wouldn't use it more than that. Too much of a good thing is never good. But pick it up and give it a shot! You might be as surprised as I was!
I use this as a leave-in conditioner. I have long, thick, wavy hair that I straighten three to four times a week. Needless to say, my hair is prone to damage and needs a lot of moisture. This stuff is awesome! It helps calm my wavy hair, and keeps it moisturized. I get a little more than pea sized amount, rub my hands together, distribute it through the ponytail section of my hair, and then rub the residue left on my hands and put it on the rest of my hair. It nourishes and helps delay the damage, and I love it. I can see how it might be too much for those with thin or fine hair, but if you have long or thick hair that needs moisture, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product!
I'm in love with this color! I love barely there polishes, perfect for the office. This one takes the cake. One light layer give your nail beds a healthy pink hue. It's like my natural nails, only better! Makes my hands look darling!
Fantastic! Works just like Bare Escentuals' Mineral Veil. Gives your makeup a softness and definitely helps keep down on the oil production. I have a very mild oil problem in my t-zone. One light coat of this stuff keep the shine at bay all day! This is a must have when using any EM foundation!
This is a keeper. I bought it to replace the Bare Escentuals bronzer, after the brand aggravated my adult acne. Everyday Minerals never does, which is why I keep coming back to it. It is a great bronzer, which looks natural. Occasionally in the heat, my pores will open and my face will begin to itch. I believe it is the bronzer, as it's the only new product I've added to my EM collection. The itch isn't bad, just more an annoyance, and my face never becomes red. It's not enough to deter me from using it, but I wanted to let others know my experience.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - foundation semi-matte formula

This is an HG product for me. I love mineral foundation, and this is the only brand that doesn't break me out. It covers wonderfully, is buildable, and gives you a bit of a glow. The foundation powder actually has light reflecting minerals in it, which you can see in the powder before you apply. It stays all day. Definitely gives a finish much like Bare Escentuals, and is cheaper. I will keep coming back!
Self Tanners -SUN Laboratories - Ultra Dark Lotion
morningblues342 8/12/2011 8:39:00 PM
I bought this lotion hoping it would be a one coat and you're several shades darker than your natural skin tone. One coat didn't give me the depth I desired. The fade is great with one coat. With two, it is a little blotchy because the tan is so much darker than your skin tone. It might take a little extra work to exfoliate evenly on non-tan days, but it's worth it. On my very pale skin (fair to fairly light in Bare Escentuals foundation), the color looks nice and brown. Even with one coat applied, I've had friends and family ask me if I had been going to the tanning bed. Of course, I never tell them the truth. ;) Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. It would be a five, if only it made me a little darker with one coat. The 8 oz bottle lasts a while. I use it twice a week, and the bottle lasts about two month. Give it a shot, it might be just right for you!
Foundations -Bare Escentuals - bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

I wanted to love this, I really did, but it just gave me acne flare-ups which haven't happened in a long time. The makeup gave me the no makeup look and beautiful, glowy skin, but everyday I'd wake up with a new (painful!) pimple. Looks like it's back to everyday minerals for me.
Treatments -Nexxus - Emergencee Strengthening Polymeric Reconstructor
morningblues342 7/24/2011 11:12:00 AM
This product is amazing! I have color treated, heat styled, bra strap length hair. For a long time, I was using a salon brand of shampoo and conditioner that was straight up destroying my hair. Along with all the damage I was inflicting on it too, it seemed hopeless. From about mid-shaft to the ends, my hair was a overly porous, tangled, fly-way mess and embarrassment. No amount of product could give it back that strong, healthy shine and manageablity, until now. I washed with Nexxus' Therappe shampoo, towel dried my hair and applied this product all over, especially focusing on the ends. I let it sit for an hour without heat, rinsed well with luke-warm water, and conditioned with Humectress conditioner. When my hair was air drying, I was worried. My hair was still a poofy, tangled mess, although I could tell it seemed stronger than before. After flat-ironing is where I could REALLY tell a difference! It's like I just got back from the salon. My hair looks HEALTHY and SHINY. It's not tangled in the slightest (just woke up and haven't brushed my hair yet) and is laying beautifully in this humidity (no weird sucking up the humidity and growing like my overly porous hair use to). My hair as been sealed in shiny, protein goodness. I think I'll use it again in a week from midshaft to ends to really seal up that damaged area. My hair is on the way back to healthy, naturally gorgeous hair, and this product is the only thing that has made leaps and bounds in the journey. I HIGHLY recommend this product. If you want salon-quality hair by only stepping out of your house, give this a go!
To help my damaged hair, I purchased Nexxus' Therappe Shampoo, this, and Emergencee. I'm reviewing each one, and this conditioner was pretty good. It moisturized my hair and complimented the Emergencee treatment perfectly. It definitely brought my hair back from that dry, kinda tangled mess the shampoo gave. I'll purchase again if needed, but this one didn't leave a lasting impression. I'll keep searching for better.
I purchased this product along with the Humectress Conditioner and Emergencee, because my hair was in need of some serious help. I will review each product separately but out of the three, I liked the shampoo okay. I'm not a terribly big fan of shampoos, which I suspect was the culprit to destroying my hair previously. This one lathered a lot and smelled just like Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen. I was taken a bit back by that. The condition of my hair after shampooing was a little stripped and moderately tangled, but not "squeaky" clean (that level of clean the most unhealthy thing ever). I might purchase this again in a pinch, but I'm off in search of greener pastures.
