Conditioner - Carol's Daughter - Monoi repairing conditioner

Apr/19/2015

I have tried several of the Carol's Daughter hair products and I am very impressed with this brand. The line for curly hair gave me better results but I couldn't get past the rose scent. To me it smelled like plastic baby dolls. The shampoo and conditioner with Monoi oil are great as well, but they smell AMAZING. Pretty much an exact dupe of the Jennifer Aniston perfume, and the scent …Read more

Shampoo - LUSH - Curly Wurly

My frizz is its own entity with this shampoo! I was disappointed because I've loved everything else I've tried from Lush. It does emphasize my curls a bit, but it dries out my hair and leaves it tangled. I'm still using my usual conditioner, but after I started using this shampoo I seriously have an inch of frizz standing up like a halo around my head. It's definitely not a …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Raw Gaia Hemp Heaven Moisturizer

Jun/16/2014

I absolutely love this moisturizer! It has completely natural ingredients and is packaged in a nice glass jar. A little goes a long way, and it has a dry oil type texture that dries matte when applied. The only drawback for me is the scent. It smells exactly like tequila, but luckily it doesn't linger.

My typical complaint with moisturizers is that they break me out. This one …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Kari Gran Lip Whip

Jan/07/2014

This is my new favorite lip balm, and I am a lip balm junkie. It comes in a black glass tub, and it has the creamiest softest consistency. The shade is peppermint, which is just a slight pink tint with a tiny bit of shine. It's like my lips but much much better! It softens very well, and it doesn't leave goopy residue in the corners, which I love. I bought this online for $15, which is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Gillette - Venus Breeze

1.0

Nov/17/2013

I have the Venus Spa Breeze. Not sure what makes it different from Venus Breeze, but it's pink instead of purple. I usually get the standard blade refills, but I found a good deal on these at Costco and thought they couldn't be that different. Wrong! They have built-in shave lotion strips around the blades, which are useless because I still have to use shave gel and somehow STILL get …Read more

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

Jun/06/2013

This stuff smells so good I would use it on my hair even if it didn't de-tangle, condition, and protect against heat styling and UV rays. Luckily it does all of that! Plus, I think it helps to tame frizz. The scent reminds me of Pink Sugar perfume (cotton candy and vanilla) and I LOVE it so much. I can still smell it the next day. My hair feels instantly soft when I spray it on, and it seems …Read more

Body Scrubs - Bath & Body Works - Cashmere Glow Golden Sugar Scrub

Jan/07/2013

Wow this scent is strong! If I used the scrub, the lotion, and the body spray all at once I'd knock someone over. Using the scrub alone is plenty. It smells very nice and my skin is really smooth and exfoliated after. But if you don't like scents from shower products to linger, I'd avoid this one. you're like me, and want to use this in place of perfume, it's perfect.

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Accutane (by prescription)

Created with Sketch.

Dec/23/2012

I've had problems with acne since I was 14. I tried everything but Accutane, honestly because it scared me and I went for a while without insurance. Just this year I got insurance, went to a dermatologist to get a prescription for more Tazorac, and he suggested Accutane. He had taken it himself and was able to be very clear about all the possible side effects. I went on it for 5 months and …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy

Aug/12/2012

I bought this shampoo on a whim just because I liked the scent. It smells wonderful! I wish I could find a perfume that smells this good. I was also surprised by how moisturizing it is. I usually wash my hair at night and then sleep on it braided. I have not had a bad hair day since using this product and I've gotten so many compliments. When I bought the shampoo I didn't realize it …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Authentic African Black Soap-Product of West Africa

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2011

I love natural and organic beauty products, and after reading all the great reviews of African black soap I had to try it. I ordered mine from Ebay seller natureandherbs because it was listed as "handmade in Ghana West Africa". It was delivered on a 90-degree day when I was out of town, so when I opened up the plastic tub the texture was very mushy. From what I read about it, it's …Read more
