Wow, nothing better than a hidden gem that's also cheap!

I have long wavy/straight Caucasian hair (I'm only mentioning this because I did find this product in the ethnic hair section in Target) with oily roots and dry ends. My hair is recovering from a medication I was on that made me lose a ton of hair, so it is still a bit on the thin side. I use this as a leave in …

Lots of FAKE rave reviews (click some of the names below, only the review for this product and posted on the same day the account was made. hmmm) for this product, very sketchy! This did nothing for my hair & I would not recommend it. I also would not purchase from a company that creates false hype.

Fragrances - La Maison de la Vanille - Absolu de Vanille

Nov/13/2015

I've really loved all of the LMDLV's I've smelled (Madagascar and Mexique are full bottle worthy) EXCEPT for this one. I was hoping for a pure vanilla as the name would lead you to believe, but all I smell is burnt caramel, campfire, and Carmex. Yes, Carmex. I guess theres a camphor note from something? I enjoy a good patchouli as long as it doesn't smell like a headshop, but …Read more

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip seed oil was not a home run for me the way emu oil was. I tried doing a 50/50 mix of emu and rosehip oil to get the benefits of both, and had some stubborn flakiness that wouldn't go away and thought it felt a little astringent. I switched to straight emu oil and both issues went away almost immediately. I have only tried rosehip oil alone a couple of times, and I didn't feel …Read more

This is my newest beauty discovery and I wish I would have found it sooner! I got done with my second cycle of Accutane earlier this year, and now my skin is normal-dry depending on the time of year. I live in an arid climate, so I was dreading the winter coming up and my skin being parched. I found this by chance on Amazon, and it got such excellent reviews and the price was decent so I thought …Read more

Hair Treatments - One 'n Only - Brazilian Tech Keratin Deep Penetrating Conditioning Treatment

2.0

Aug/10/2015

I had high expectations for this product considering the great reviews on here and the Sally Beauty website, but it was just ok for me. Less than 24 hrs after use my hair is staticky and dry (and it's summer, it would be even worse in winter!) which is awful for a "deep" conditioner. The best feature of this conditioner is the smell which is awesome, but that's not enough to …Read more

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Emu Oil

Jan/13/2015

I've tried a lot of oils and emu oil is by far my favorite. It's hard to find an oil that moisturizes acne prone skin without clogging, most of the "safe" oils are too drying (grapeseed) or just don't moisturize enough (maracuja). This one actually seemed to penetrate and do something other than being greasy. It grosses me out that it's from an animal, but I use …Read more

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Midnight Dare

Sep/29/2014

This is a warm and fruity fragrance, which is a nice step away from the straight up fruity that you usually find at VS. I detect nothing powdery, and it smells pretty much the same from initial application to when it wears off so it's not very complex. This seems like a fragrance that men would like. I would personally like it even more if it was less raspberry & more sandalwood, but VS …Read more

This is my current HG foundation!
My skin is combination/sensitive/acne prone, emphasis on the acne prone. I have yet to find a foundation that didn't cause clogs, until now. This actually seems to help clear my skin which is crazy, I'm attributing it to the tea tree oil. This has medium coverage, and on days when I want lighter coverage I just mix it with a little moisturizer …

Hair Color - Clairol - Second Nature

Created with Sketch.

May/15/2013

I normally use Color Gloss (same brand), but the last 2 times I went to Sally's they were out of my color so I decided to use this instead. I did light ash brown like I normally do, knowing that these types of dyes usually end up 2 shades darker, and used Clairol Color Radiance developer like I do with my usual dye. I left it on for 10-12 min. as usual too, the bottle had very little in the …Read more
