This is a stick cream eyeshadow that has a nice, subtle color payoff. I don't like a lot of eyeshadow, and these are a nice, easy way to apply eyeshadow without it looking overdone. The stick formula makes it easy to swipe on - and it's almost impossible to overdo this product. I would definitely repurchase!
I got this on clearance at CVS for $3. Good thing I only wasted 3 bucks. This product is horrible. After about 2-3 days of using it, I noticed I was developing millia under my eyes - those tiny white bumps. I stopped using VitaK and they disappeared. Horrible product.
I used Glytone products several years ago and constantly received comments about how great my skin looked - like it was glowing. I stopped using it because I thought maybe it had done it's job - cleared up my acne, and provided a facial peel. Big mistake. It took about a year, but my face broke out again and just seemed dull and lifeless. I purchased Glytone again (the mild gel wash, and exfoliating fluid level 1). My skin is back to it's glory days!! My dermatologist told me this, so good to keep in mind, that THIS PRODUCT TAKES AT LEAST A MONTH TO WORK!! Be patient - it's worth every second!
Eyes -Ardell - Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel

I've been using this product for over a year after reading some great reviews on this site. I'm not sure that's it's really made my lashes longer or thicker, but it just conditions them and keeps them healthy - not brittle, like some mascaras can do to your lashes. I will keep using this - both as a lash conditioner and an eyebrow gel. At $4 a tube, you really can't beat it! My only complaint is that it's pretty hard to find. I find it at Ulta every now and then and try to buy all the tubes they have.
I LOVE the scent of this. It's so light, clean and fresh. It's not "perfumy" by any means. It just smells clean and "baby-like". I get comments on this scent all of the time. I apply it while i'm in my closet so my clothes take on the scent of this fragrance!
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Skin Genesis Moisturizer Lotion Oil-Free

I'm on my second bottle of this lotion. I'm always looking for a light, oil-free lotion that doesn't break my face out. I'm 32 with normal skin, and concerned about lines and wrinkles, as well as the occasional breakout. So far, this lotion has done a great job! It's a great moisturizer, feels like a gel, rather than a lotion. It hasn't broken my face out at all, and I love the bottle. I will definitely repurchase.
Treatments (Eye) -Cosmedicine - Opti-mologist with Light Diffusers

I've been using Opti-mologist for about 2 weeks now. I like the packaging, no pots to dip fingers in.... and the smell doesn't bother me at all. I'll update in a few weeks to see how I like this product down the road...UPDATE: I've stopped using this. I think it gave me little white bumps around the eye area so I stopped using it. It seemed to work well at first, and then started drying out my undereye area. Very disappointed....
This is a fantastic product! I have used Lancome Definicils for 10 years now and thought that nothing could compare to it. But I saw an add for the rubber bristle Cover Girl mascara and thought it looked cool. To my amazement - it does everything it promises! Long, perfectly defined lashes - and no need for an eyelash comb or spoolie after applying! With Definicils, I had to comb my lashes because they would clump together, but with Lash Exact, my lashes come out perfect with one or 2 strokes of the brush. Who would've thought a $5 mascara from Cover Girl could be so effective! I will buy this again and again. It's my new HG mascara.
I have tried many anti-acne products, treatments and therapies but this was by far the worst! I honestly think you'd get the same results from just splashing water on your face. I returned mine for a full refund. And when I asked for the refund they kept harrassing me. Bad customer service and poor product.

This product really makes my hair look healthier, shinier and softer. I think it helps prevent breakage too - which I need since I always stick my hair back in a clip or ponytail, come midday. It seems to make my conditioner more effective, too! I definitely will buy this product again and again.
I bought this b/c my eyelashes turned dry and brittle after taking Accutane for 6 months. I don't notice my eyelashes being any longer or thicker than they were, but this product is a great lash conditioner. I can definitely tell a difference in the way my mascara applies since I've been using this product - it's smoother and less clumpy and my eyelashes look much glossier. I'd buy this again, but I'd also like to find a product that really does make your lashes grow and thicken?
This product made my eyes sting so badly I thought I may have to go to the hospital. I'm not sure what ingredient is in it that causes this effect, but those of you with sensitive skin, do not purchase!
I've been using this product for years. It's a good undereye moisturizer, although I can't say that I think that it helps prevent/correct wrinkles. The reason I keep going back to this product is because my eyes are extremely sensitive and it's the only thing that I've found that doesn't make my eyes burn and sting. So I keep purchasing it for the moisturizing effect and the fact that it's very gentle on skin.
While this product does give my fine hair a little bit of volume at the roots, it leaves a lot of flakes in my hair, which looks like a bad case of dandruff - yuck! My hair only does this with TiGi Root Boost so I know it's not actually dandruff. I've tried spraying it about an inch down the hair strand rather than directly at the root and it still did the same thing? I probably would not buy this again because of the white cakey residue it leaves on my hair.
Concealers -Lancome - Maquicomplet (Complete Coverage Concealer)

Since I only use a dab of concealer under my eyes and around my nose (and of course on any spots on my face), I've found that this concealer is the perfect balance of color and weight. It's the only concealer that I go back to time and time again - and I've tried almost all of them out there. It's not too think, so it doesn't crease or run - but the color still covers well if you are looking for a medium coverage concealer. I find that this product is very effective when applied with a sponge applicator - I just dab the wand under my eyes and then blend with the sponge and Voila!
