I wanted to try one of these and was excited when I received one in my Birchbox. I love the color of this lip balm. It's a purple-ish, rosy color that shows up nicely on my lips while still looking natural. It's not long lasting, but I didn't expect it to be. When I run out, I'll purchase it when I catch it on sale.

Lotions/ Creams - Davines - Authentic Balm

I received a sample of this in my Birchbox. It's marketed as a multitasking product, but it only worked for me as a body cream. However, as a body cream it is amazing! It sinks in at the speed of light, truly hydrates my skin, and the hydration lasts all day. Best of all, it is in no way shape or form greasy and leaves a wonderful, velvety finish. As much as I love it, it's pretty …Read more

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is HG for me. It is incredibly versatile. Surprisingly, it does not break out my acne/clog prone skin. I use 1-2 drops on damp skin as a facial moisturizer and it absorbs quickly. At night, I use it to remove sunscreen (followed by Cerave foaming). It also works perfectly for my long, fine hair. I massage a small amount on my scalp before I shampoo and then apply a couple drops onto …Read more

Lip Treatments - Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25

I thought I had found my HG daytime lip balm. As others have said, it is truly moisturizing and makes my lips so soft. Works beautifully to prep my lips for lipstick. Unfortunately, the SPF is unstable. So as much as I loved this, I will not repurchase as I need a product with stable SPF protection for daytime.

Hair Removal - NADS - Nad's Body Wax Strips, 24 Strips

These wax strips are fantastic. The directions say to rub them between your hands to warm them up, but I used a blow dryer and it worked perfectly. The box was $5 at WalMart and included more than enough strips to wax both legs. They're easy to use, there's no mess involved, and they even worked better than the kits with microwavable wax. I was so impressed.

Moisturizers - Garden of Wisdom - Matcha Green Tea HA Serum

Dec/27/2013

My skin was terribly dehydrated. Every moisturizer I tried either broke me out or clogged my pores. I started using a few drops of oil after cleansing, which helped but did not completely solve my problem.
This is the first HA serum I have ever tried, so I can't compare it to others. Texture is like a serum and the product is odorless. I apply a couple drops after cleansing while my …

I have struggled for years to find a moisturizer that wouldn't clog/break me out. I decided to try oils and emailed GOW for recommendations. Based on their recs, I ordered a sample pack which included camellia sinensis oil. This oil works beautifully for me. It is lightweight and absorbs nicely. Here are the specs listed on the GOW website:

Shampoo - DermOrganic - Sulfate-Free Conditioning Shampoo

Dec/23/2013

This is my HG shampoo. It works wonders for my hair (which is fine, straight, thick, and just past my shoulders). It manages to thoroughly clean my hair without stripping it. It also does not create build up on my scalp like most other shampoos. The product is thick but does lather for me. I use a full pump, which is probably more than I need to.
However, I must agree with previous …

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Creamy Moisturizing Oil

Dec/17/2013

This lotion is pretty good. It soaks in quickly, is non-greasy, and truly does leave my skin feeling silky. It may not be enough for some during the winter months or for those with really dry skin. I find myself needing to reapply on my legs, which get pretty dry. But I think this would be perfect during the summer.

I love the smell. It's delicious, like sweet almonds. The scent …
