Hair Color - REVLON - ColorSilk in Medium Rich Brown #47

Who hasn't turned to Revlon in a hair dye emergency, when the grays are peeking through but the funds are just not quite there? Well, I have. The coverage is good and the price is great, and it won't over-damage the hair. Finding a color that doesn't turn too brassy or too ashy in their lineup can be a challenge in and of its own, though. My hair is brown and I usually obey the …Read more

Deodorants - Suave - 24-Hour Invisible Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant

3.0

I have this in the Everlasting Sunshine scent, which the packaging would lead you to believe smells like tropical flowers but I think actually smells like a fruit daiquiri. It's not unpleasant, though. And it works, in that it it will keep your armpits smelling like fruit daiquiri and not sweating through your shirt until you take it off. It's when it comes time to take the 24 hour …Read more

Conditioner - Suave - Professionals Thick and Full Conditioner Caffeine & Chia Infusion

I have a love/hate relationship with Suave hair care products. I love finding a great product and I hate knowing they will discontinue it sooner rather than later. I've learned to appreciate Suave hair care lines like a summer camp romance: go ahead and enjoy it while it lasts, but don't get attached. So, I usually try out their new product lines even as I know about 3 out of 5 of them …Read more

Conditioner - Alberto VO5 - Ocean Refresh conditioner

I love Alberto V05 conditioners for everyday use. This is just a simple conditioner with no 'cones, it uses oils instead to add some slip to the hair. For those days when you're just hanging around the house or running errands with your hair in a ponytail it will do the job, and it smells really nice. I like the ocean breeze flavor but it doesn't really matter which one you use …Read more

Cleansers - Trader Joe's - Facial Cleansing Oil

Aug/29/2018

I'm a big fan of DHC's olive oil cleanser, so when I saw this at TJ's I was hoping for a lower priced dup. No such luck. It is an effective oil-based cleanser for taking off foundation and powder, leaving my skin very soft. However, it's also got a lot of volatile fragrant oils that are extremely irritating to the eyes. When I buy an oil based cleanser, I buy it with the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Brandless

I agree with the other reviewer about the Brandless hand cream. The lemon verbena smell is fantastic, and you get a decent amount of product for the price. It glides on smoothly and feels so soft, but not tacky, right after application. Then in about 30 minutes your hands feel dry again. I think it's because the product has dimethicones in it. I'm going to tentatively say I might buy it …Read more

Hair - John Frieda - Visibly Brighter Lightening Shampoo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2018

I wish there was a button for 'maybe' instead of just yes or no as to whether I would repurchase. I'm actually still on the fence. I tried this out hoping it would help me extend my color over the summer, and it does help, though it's not a replacement for a good hair dye. It has a subtle lightening effect on the hair, adding a bit of neutral yellow. It disguised my roots well …Read more

Conditioner - Suave - Rose Oil Infusion

Apr/20/2018

This is a lightweight conditioner that imparts a little manageability to hair. It's basically a really nice smelling detangler. I don't prefer to use this with the matching shampoo because it's just not emollient enough to work well with it. I do like it a lot matched with more emollient shampoos, like Suave's Morrocan Shine for example.

Shampoo - Suave - Rose Oil Infusion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2018

This is an old school volumizer, which means it's a product that removes all buildup from the hair, unlike the newer volumizers that add coats of protein or silicone to temporarily thicken the strands. So basically what it's doing is it is removing anything that could be weighing the hair down. It leaves the hair fluffy and it's fantastic for second day hair since the effect lasts …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2018

This is a good mascara. I don't know if I would go so far as to call it my HG, but for a drugstore product it definitely exceeded my expectations. It does what I was hoping it would do: give me the fluffy lash look without clumping and without having to apply too many coats. The brush is pretty genius. The formula smells like coconuts which is nice I guess? I gather the coconut oil is …Read more
