The first time I used this, I thought maybe I'd gotten a really old bottle because the texture was so bad, sort of like very very small curd cottage cheese rather than a smooth cream. I checked the date and it was nowhere near expired. I put this on over my regular serum and had a lot of trouble getting it to apply evenly; it left white streaks that were difficult to get rid of. It also …Read more

May/15/2011

I've tried this twice now and don't plan to do so again. The consistency is runnier than I like going on, but it's workable. It smells/feels stronger than the other home hair colors I've used, perhaps because it's supposed to work in 10 minutes. I haven't found it to be a real timesaver, though, because it doesn't rinse out very fast at all. It could be that …Read more

I used to use a ridge filling basecoat, but I find IA serves the same purpose and adds strength to my nails without adding that milky color a lot of ridefillers have. Sometimes I use two coats of this as a base, sometimes I use one coat over a treatment product like Orly Nail Defense. My polish wears well when I use IA as a base. It doesn't do everything (I still have peeling sometimes) …Read more

I tried the Girl Flower design while on vacation. They were fairly easy to apply; I liked that the box had the orange stick and file included. I did get a few wrinkles near the tips of my nails but since I've never used a product like this, that's not surprising. By Day 6, I saw only a few signs of wear (at the spots where I'd gotten the wrinkles in the strips and near my …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer

Jul/02/2010

I won this in a raffle, so not sure about the value for money, but it doesn't matter because after using it for a few weeks on my chest and neck, I know I won't be buying another bottle (or pump or can or whatever this should be called). The foaming feature is, as far as I can tell, pointless, unless the point was to make one guess how much product will squirt out and force the user to …Read more

I got this in a brownish black. Color is fine, but I really do not like the brush. Maybe I got a bad one, but it's not very wide and has short bristles that don't go all the way around the wand, so I'm always having to rotate it so I get bristles on my lashes and can't roll the brush up my lashes because of the flat spots on the brush. My brush looks nothing like the one in …Read more

This does a good job smoothing ridges and other surface imperfections and does seem to help keep my nails in good shape. On me, it's more a milky white than the light pink other reviewers have mentioned. I prefer to use it under color, as the slight streaking I get with one or two coats of this alone isn't the best look.

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Cuticle Remover Gel

Feb/04/2010

This is a nice thick gel that stays where I put it. I do wish the opening of the tube were a little narrower, as it's very easy to squirt out too thick a line and thus waste product--but it's fairly cheap so I guess that's not that big a deal. I never use the angled tip of the tube to push back my cuticles after the gel has done its work; an orange stick or even my thumbnail …Read more

Brows - MILANI - Brow Fix Kit

3.0

I only use the two brow colors and the slant brush from this kit, so the highlighter, tweezers, and sponge applicator are wasted for me. The part of the package that holds the tools came out of its slot on my package; I'd just toss it but the way the lid is shaped I need it to keep the one brush I use from rattling around. The brow colors themselves are fine.
