I love this stuff. I put it on after I put on mineral powder foundation. It goes on easy, and has good coverage--not too much, giving an 'overdone' look. I like it.
Styling Products -Matrix - Sleek Look Water-Free Hairspray

This stuff has NO HOLD...and it flakes! I have thick hair..and after I straighten it, it becomes fine...and this product did nothing whatsoever. After about 2 minutes my hair would fall flat. But--atleast my hair wasn't stiff and sticky after it fell flat. The smell wasn't that bad to me.
I'm not sure if this gets my face clean or not...the fact that you have to put it on to your face when it's dry makes me think it doesn't do a good job. But, it hasn't irritated my face yet.
It absorbs very easly, its natural and they don't test on animals. This product is okay with me! I could do without the scent, but it's not a big deal.
Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica - Passion Fruit Nectar Lip Balm

I love this lip balm! I have tried this, and the other 2 flavors that Alba has. I use this when I'm indoors, because it has no spf. It glides on easy and keeps my lips moist for a good while. I LOVE that Alba products are 100% vegetarian and are not tested on animals, (as I am an animal loving vegetarian)...that alone will get me to buy a product!
I have thick, brittle, hair that tends to get dry, along with my scalp. I wash my hair twice a week, because it takes 1 1/2 hours to blowdry/straighten it, and my hair breaks off in the shower and during the styling process alot. If I washed my hair more than 2x a week, I wouldn't have any hair. Anyways...I bought this stuff and used in when my scalp was flakey and my roots a little oily from product build up. It was okay. It doesn't make dandruff dissapear, (I didn't expect it too), but it did make my hair look a little better than the current nasty-gym-hair state it was in.
Cleansers -MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross - All-in-One Facial Cleanser with Toner
ng76 5/26/2008 6:36:00 PM
I'm not exactly sure what the purpose of this product is...is it just a regular cleanser, or is it good for acne...I just don't know. The packaging is probably the vaguest I have ever read. I have used it twice so far--it's okay. I haven't noticed anything special. I don't know what I'm supposed to be looking for!
The shape is a little awkward, and it smells like paint. I bought it because it was broad-spectrum. Glides on easy and keeps my lips moisturized! I wish I had known about this years ago.
Works great all day. Smells great. This is my favorite scent from BAN.
I have used this deodorant in every scent available....I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! It is the first deodorant that works!! I never have to worry about odor or moisture anymore since using this. It's not "invisible". There is no way that a white deodorant will go on invisible..but, that is why I use the Ban clear roll-on when I'm wearing something that might show my armpits. I love this stuff. I have been using it for 3 years and I have no intention of stopping.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel
ng76 4/27/2008 1:21:00 PM
Did not do a single thing for my acne. I get zits once in a while, only a few...and small, too. This did not work at all. It smells horrible and burns.
I love this stuff. I put it on my blemishes 2-3 times a day (or less), and they are gone by the end of the day. It doesn't burn/scar my skin. The only bad thing, is that I noticed it doesn't work so well towards the end of the tube. I have two tubes of it (one at home and one in my dorm), and they are both about empty and not working so fast...but they still work, it just takes longer. Also, watch this stuff around fabrics, it will bleach out your stuff. I have a few bleached out towels because of this stuff. I will buy this stuff for as long as they make it.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 30

Made me break out in tiny bumps all over my arms, and forehead. You couldn't pay me to use this stuff again.
Sunscreen -Aveeno - Active Naturals Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion - SPF 45
ng76 4/27/2008 1:07:00 PM
This stuff smells like your average sunscreen; strong. It hasn't made my skin break out yet (I only use this from the neck down), which is something that rarely happens. It rubs in fast and doesn't make my skin look shiny.
Polishes -Rimmel - Lasting Finish in Celebrity Bash
ng76 4/27/2008 1:03:00 PM
Beautiful color!! I have to apply sevral coats in order to get an even color. When used with base and top coat, this stuff won't chip for up to two weeks. One of my favorite polishes.
