Shampoo - Shea Moisture - Organic Coconut & Hisbiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo

Ugh. After debating on buying this shampoo at Target for months, I caved and got it. (A few weeks later they came out with trial sizes of it, which was much cheaper... ugh...) This brand is a popular curly hair product on some curl forums I frequent.

But anyway. This stuff absolutely destroyed my scalp. I'm not sure what happened? Maybe I have a scalp issue I haven't been …

Treatments (Face) - Avene - Cold Cream

May/20/2014

This was my first Avene product.

The packaging makes me feel so fancy, it's kind of in a really nice metal tube. I had to ask my husband how to open it cause i'm a dummy--the top of the lid can be turned around to poke the top of the spout on the tube. Pretty neat.

It smells fantastic. Also makes you feel really fancy. But I'm not sure how I feel on the …

Treatments - Blue Cross - Cuticle Remover

May/20/2014

Good amount of product for your money. It's kind of awkward trying to apply it, it gets everywhere, but I like it a lot. I use pure acetone for nail polish removal so I moisturize the crap out of my hands and cuticles after using it. The blue cross has helped soften my cuticles and ends up making nail polish application easier, without overflooding your cuticles. It's good stuff. It …Read more

Moisturizers - St. Ives - Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

Nov/18/2013

I'm on my 3rd large container of this St Ives moisturizer, so I've had a few months to experiment with it. It's cheap, lots of product for around $5. I do have a few bones to pick with it though.

I think it would work better for oily skin. I have very dry, maybe even dehydrated skin. It sucks as a moisturizer by itself but works wonderful in combination with OCM and …

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Total Moisture Body Lotion - Clean Feeling with Pure Oat Extract + Stratys 3

Works very well for hands. A lot of stuff, particularly shea butter, is way too greasy for hands and can make picking up anything a slippery slope. This one doesn't have shea butter, so no grease!

I have a lot of trouble with ingredients irritating my face. One day I re-read the ingredients on this lotion and realized it was missing a LOT of big trigger ingredients that are …

Masks - Silk Naturals - Pumpkin Yogurt Mask

5.0

Nov/18/2013

I really enjoyed this. Though it was a bit awkward having to measure it out and stir it together, it came out nice. The amount was so small I needed something relatively small to mix it in: I used an old washed out yogurt container. It smells wonderful, like organic baby food if that makes sense? (Not in a bad way at all.) It didn't break me out which was also a shocker because I have a long …Read more

Skincare - Face - Stridex - Triple Action Pads, Alcohol Free

3.0

Nov/18/2013

I was very surprised at how much I liked these pads. The menthol isn't working for me though, I think it dries me out too much, but it doesn't break me out otherwise. Salicylic acid also has some mild anti inflammatory properties so it actually soothes my redness and rosacea problems while unclogging my pores. (I had some closed comedones on my forehead.) Because I have mildly dry skin …Read more

Conditioner - Avalon Organics - Lemon Clarifying Conditioner

Also drying like the shampoo from this set. Smells nice, cleans well, but again--not for daily use. Overuse can cause relatively brittle hair. It helped accentuate my curls as long as I don't dry my hair out too much. Didn't do a whole lot for detangling, I usually get a few snags when using this conditioner.

Shampoo - Avalon Organics - Clarifying Lemon Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2013

It's pretty drying, definitely not your every day shampoo! Also not for dyed hair since clarifying shampoos can be stripping. I have very thick long natural mildly curly hair, dry scalp too. This shampoo actually helps a lot, I use it once or twice a week. I'm getting ready to switch over to co-washing whenever I run out of what I got, including the Avalon clarifying duo. It has pretty …Read more

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

Sep/24/2013

Not a huge fan of jojoba oil for general skin use, which is what I originally bought it for. It doesn't do too much for me; breaks my face out in particular. I've been having some itchy dry scalp--I do really enjoy it for hair use. I've also been using a bit before shaving to prevent razor burn and such. I'd probably buy again, but I wouldn't be in a huge rush to go out …Read more
