When I first learned about sulfates and silicones (and that they can damage your hair), I decided to switch to this range of shampoos and conditioners. I really like the rosemary mint scent. However, my hair seemed drier, and I would need TONS of conditioner just to make up for it. The trick is this: it's not actually sulfate free. It contains harsh cleansers under different names so that you think you're getting the real thing. It also contains dimethicone, and, well...if it ends in -cone, it's silicone. Now, some sulfates are gentle and alright to use (like the ones in Giovanni's hair range), but these are not. Ignore the very false advertising and throw this crap away.

My favorite nail polish ever. I generally only wear gold polish, so I've tried a lot of them. This is glitzy and pretty, but understated. It's a lovely dark gold color with a lot of fine gold shimmer. The brush is the best brush I've ever used - I don't know why other companies don't use this flat brush. It's precise, carries a lot of polish, and creates the smoothest nails. One coat on me is about 80% opaque. Will keep buying this. Probably until the end of time.

This is my favourite foundation! It doesn't dry out my dry spots or make my oily spots any oilier--essentially, it's neutral! It's never broken me out and it doesn't feel heavy. I also love it because it's the closest I've ever come to finding a foundation that matches my super-pale skin tone.
I loved this product. For me, it's the perfect mascara. It gives great length AND volume to my lashes, and also adds a nice curl without needing to use a curler. I also like that one coat gives me a pretty dramatic look. It's also never spidery, like most mascaras are these days. It's never smudged, either. 4 for price, since it was fairly expensive, and 4 for packaging, since it came neatly and without a bunch of unnecessary stuff.
