Hair - Living Proof - PHD Fresh Cut Split End Mender

Jul/29/2016

Heard about this product on a podcast where some people in the cosmetic industry said this was one of the few products that actually (temporarily) bonded split ends together. I currently have quite a few split ends (am about 2 months overdue for a cut!), so tried it out. I am pretty impressed. From a distance, my hair looks similar to when I use chi (my usual product for end of hair). But, up …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

I use in the evening, most every day, leaving on about 5 minutes. After about a week of use, I saw a visible difference in my pores, and a few months later, I still see similar results. It also seems like my skin 'glows', but that's subjective. There's no downtime, no redness. easy for travel in self-contained packets. I don't think the results are quite as good …Read more

Styling Products - Sexy Hair - Big Sexy Hair - Spray & Stay

Mar/03/2015

Love this. Non-aerosol. Not sticky, brushes out. I typically use when in wearing my hair down - spritz at the Roots for some volume and at the ends if I've curled. Somewhat similar to Elnett, but doesn't seem to dry my hair out as much.

Love this product. I use on my roots while they're damp. I lift up sections I'd hair, spray into the roots, then brush through. I then blow it dry. This product makes a visible difference in the volume of my hair near the roots an stays all day. Even though I use quite a bit of product (maybe 10 sprays) , my hair feels touchable. The biggest downside is that my hair is greasy the …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Olivia Garden - Ceramic + Ion Professional Brushes

I have one of the round brushes (1 3/4 inch). It's the first non-drugstore brush I've owned, so I can't compare with other similarly priced brands. I use while blow drying my hair. It's easy to use-my hair doesn't get caught or tangled like with cheaper brushes. The brush also heats up a lot- sometimes too much, it hurts when I accidentally touch the brush to my neck …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Feb/08/2015

I've used the clarisonic regularly for about 3 years, usually once a day. One of my favorite tools-I even take it with me when I travel. It seems as though my scrubs and products absorb more easily when I use this. My pores seem smaller. It is a pricey tool, there are a number of cheaper versions available now-if I were first purchasing a product now, I might try one of those first.

Hair Styling Tools - T3 - Bodywaver

Feb/08/2015

I bought mine from sephora (an authorized dealer), and have not had any quality concerns. I use on one of the higher heat settings. It heats quickly and evenly. At 1.75 inches, this provides body more than providing curls. I previously had long hair - midway down my back. It gave me about 1 curl, just enough to provide some body and movement to my normally straight hair. I now have shoulder …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - L'Oreal Elnett Extra StrongHold UV Hair Spray - 11 oz.

Jan/16/2015

It smells like bug spray to me, and is quite a strong scent. This is a different type of hairspray than I'm used to. It's quite light, but build able. I do not use it on my roots or to hold an up do. Instead, I use on the body of my hair when I wear it down. I have lots of fine hair that does not hold a curl, slips out of ponytails, and gets flyaways. If I'm curling my hair …Read more

Lipstick - Buxom - Full On Lip Stick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2015

This is essentially a large lip pencil meant to be used on the whole lip. I sometimes use lip liner to fill in my lisp, then finish with a gloss, so this seemed like a great choice for me. It is matte, as advertised. I found that it will accentuate any dry skin on my lips, but otherwise goes on smoothly. There was a tiny bit of coldness after I put it in, but no tingling and no plumping. …Read more
