Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

Aug/15/2016

Absolutely loved this mascara. Made my lashes a perfect, beautiful fan with no smudging, clumping or stickiness. So why wouldn't I buy again? After four days of using it, the skin around my eyelids and under my eye began to itch and get red. I had to freeze spoons and place them over my eyes to get any relief. I don't have sensitive eyes but this and another Maybelilne mascara made them …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - Nourishing Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2015

For years I've been trying to find an alternative to DHC's pricy but amazing cleansing oil. Nothing, including makeup-removing wipes, wipes out a full face of makeup like a cleansing oil does. But I couldn't reconcile the $29 per bottle. Along comes Garnier's cleansing oil. It is not the same as olive or baby oil; it has emulsifiers so it rinses clean, and those do not. I use …Read more

Sep/15/2014

This is the BEST hair color I've ever used. I haven't written a review here in a long time, but I feel compelled to after using this fantastic project. I'm a L'Oreal gal through and through, and have been using Preference for years, but my hair never felt this soft or looked this shiny after using Preference. Never. I used medium golden brown, and it's perfect...truly …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Feria Haircolor

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2011

I've tried all L'Oreal hair color products now; Excellence, Preference, and Feria. I'm so disappointed in Feria. It's the most expensive of the three, and has a great variety of color selections. You would think with this type of investment, the company would make this their gold standard product. Not for my hair. My hair is fine and oily, and it takes a LOT to make it dry and …Read more

Styling Products - TRESemmé - 24HR Body Foaming Mousse

5.0

Jul/21/2010

This mousse is a fantastic product for a great price. I use it like I do a regular mousse, I don't put it on a vented brush, but I do use my hands to distribute it evenly. I flip my head over and dry my hair, then dry it normally with a round brush. The volume, softness and hold is amazing. No stickiness, no drooping, just soft, bouncy volume. Used to use Big Sexy Hair products for styling …Read more

Moisturizers - Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer 100% Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF30

Jul/14/2010

I wanted to love this--I saw it had no avobenzone like the spf 15 product, so I bought it with the highest of hopes. My skin is really sensitive and when I put this on it stung and turned my skin red. The moisturizing properties are great but I can't take the stinging and burning. This goes back and I'll continue to use the only moisturizer that doesn't hurt my skin and actually …Read more

Jun/09/2010

I've been waiting for this to come to the stores here after all these intriguing reviews. This mascara is terrific. I like a dramatic eye look most days and this fits the bill. Ever since Cover Girl discontinued my favorite, Fantastic Lash, I've been looking for something that can give me fringy eyelashes you can see a mile away. After trying about every drugstore mascara out there …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Preference Shine Extending Hair Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2010

I gave L'Oreal Excellence haircolor a five-star rating last year and I still stand by that--but for my hair, I like Preference even better. I use Medium Golden Brown (5G) and it is a gorgeous color. It really warms up my straight, fine, naturally medium brown hair. The reasons why I like Preference more than Excellence are: 1) my hair is much shinier for much longer. You can see the shine …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Redness Soothing Facial Wash gel

5.0

Dec/02/2009

Wow--a redness soothing wash that doesn't burn and sting like crazy AND an acne wash that doesn't dry out my skin?? And Neutrogena makes it? Unbelievable! I was hesitant to try this because my experiences with this cleanser's orange cousin made my face dry, red and scaly. But this strikes the perfect balance between calming facial redness and cleaning out pores with pimple-causing …Read more

Conditioner - PANTENE - Pro-V Nature Fusion Smoothing Conditioner with Avocado Oil

5.0

Oct/30/2009

I have been using this conditioner with the nature fusion shampoo and I'm surprised and happy about how wonderful it's working. I have limp, oily, fine, color-treated hair that can't hold a curl and basically just hangs. With this conditioner my hair is so smooth and shiny, it looks great even when I just wear it down, no styling. I was afraid that this would make my hair greasy …Read more
