Hair - PANTENE - 2 in 1 Classsically Clean

Created with Sketch.

Jun/24/2015

I can't believe there aren't more reviews about the Pantene Pro-V Classic Clean 2in1 Shampoo and Conditioner! This was the shampoo they had at a Best Western hotel I stayed at and I ended up taking what was left with me on a trip where I stayed at a retreat center that didn't provide shampoo. It had been nearly a year since I got it, and I had not thought about what a great …Read more

Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Sunblock SPF 30

Jun/23/2015

I like the texture of this sunscreen (moisturizing, but not oily) and it seems to work well. It smells like sunscreen, but I don't mind (some people might, however). This product is fragrance-free, which I like, and the broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen seems to protect my skin well. However, it is not really "all-natural," depending on how you define "natural." The …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - The Honest Company - Honest Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

Jun/23/2015

Honestly not that special. The Honest Company's claim to fame is that their products are natural and free of PABA, petrochemicals, silicones, parabens, phthalates, fragrances, gluten, dyes and synthetic chemical sunscreens. It's great that this product is free of "nasties," but what's not so great is the texture. This feels greasy, just like your run-of-the-mill …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Rhonda Allison - Blemish Serum

5.0

Jun/23/2015

I use this blemish serum once or twice daily on the oily areas of my face (T-zone and underneath my jawline) after washing and using toner, but before applying my moisturizer. My esthetician had recommended this product to me for summertime use, when my combination skin becomes more oily. The texture is somewhat watery but not too watery, it glides on smoothly, and smells nice. I think …Read more

Moisturizers - Rhonda Allison - Amino Peptide Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2015

My esthetician had recommended this product to me as an alternative to the Arbonne RE9 Night Repair Creme that I had been using, since I have combination to oily skin and the RE9 Night Creme was formulated for very dry skin. I started using the Amino Peptide Moisturizer at night and really enjoyed the lightweight texture of the product. It is still moisturizing and offers anti-aging benefits …Read more

Moisturizers - Arbonne - Re9 Restorative Day Cream SPF 20

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2015

I'm still in my 20s, but my friend, who is an Arbonne sales rep, was really pushing the RE9 line because she claimed skin cell turnover greatly decreases after age 18. Whether or not this is true, I have not been able to find supporting evidence. Anyway, I have combination skin which is oily in the summer and dry in the winter. This lotion, like one of the other reviewers said, was too …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2015

This is basically an acne cleanser with a lower percentage of salicylic acid (this product has 0.5% salicylic acid while most of Neutrogena's acne wash products have 2% salicylic acid), so it ends up being gentler on the face if the 2% salicylic acid is too drying for you. The alpha-hydroxy acid, which Neutrogena claims will help smooth fine lines (by promoting exfoliation), is glycolic …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2015

First off, the smell! This product smells heavily perfumed and I generally don't like putting scented products on my face. It wasn't even a good scent... just really... perfume-y. I bought the color Fair to Light, as shown in the picture. I think it might have been a shade too light for my complexion as the season transitioned from spring to summer, but it didn't matter too …Read more

BB Cream - Garnier - SkinActive 5-in-1 Miracle Perfector BB Cream Oil-Free

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2015

This is my first BB Cream, which a friend had recommended to me. I have previously either used foundation or gone makeup-free. I tried a tinted moisturizer, but didn't like it, as I wanted a little more coverage. This BB Cream offers the perfect in-between coverage; more than a tinted moisturizer, but less coverage than a foundation. The Light/Medium color works well for my skin tone …Read more

Conditioner - Alterna Haircare - Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo - Bamboo Leaf Scent

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2015

I have dark hair and have been on the hunt for a translucent dry shampoo that won't leave a white powdery residue in my hair while still absorbing oil. I think this is it. I was first introduced to Alterna's Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo on a website that listed some top dry shampoos. So far, I have only tried this once, but it did seem effective at absorbing …Read more
