Shampoo - JASÖN - Dandruff Relief Dandruff Shampoo

3.0

Apr/02/2015

This shampoo really does work---amazingly well. It does everything it claims it will do. The only problem is the odor. It is extremely strong, and it's sulfur, so it's not exactly a pleasant smell. You won't notice it when first washing, as there is a fragrance present that masks it that is not offending. But give it about 1 hour after drying, and it picks up intensely. I really …Read more

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2014

This product looked really intriguing---it comes in a nice round little container and the balm itself consists of green and white swirls. I really wanted to like this balm, but overall I would say it is pretty mediocre. While it does moisturize, the color of the balm gives a grayish cast on the cuticles---even when rubbed in---that can make your nails look almost dirty. I also find it is not …Read more

Hair Treatments - Coppola - Keratin Complex Straight Day Spray

5.0

Jul/20/2014

I happened to get my haircut at a Visible Changes recently, and the stylist used Keratin Complex Straight Day Spray by Coppola (this is exactly what is said on the bottle) on my thin, straight (though at times prone to frizz) hair.

I was so impressed with the results after the cut that I decided I would purchase the product, which is not typically what I will do on the spot without …

Treatments (Face) - Murad - Acne Treatment Concealer

4.0

Jun/29/2014

As a treatment, which is how this product is labeled, blemishes improve greatly during the day and heal well. It does cause some peeling at times, so it is important to moisturize.

As a concealer though, this is where I had to take away a lippie. It goes on very creamy so that is nice---it is easy to blend. It's staying power is so-so. But since this really does border more …

Shampoo - John Frieda - Luxurious Volume

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2014

Pros: Does volumize (fair job), lathers very well, no obnoxious fragrance (in fact, no detectable fragrance at all)

Con: Probably too drying for very frequent use

This shampoo is pretty average---it does do a fairly decent job of adding volume (and I have very fine hair), but the cost is that it does seem to dry hair out. It's not as excessively drying as some …

Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Facial Sunblock 30

Jun/14/2014

EDIT April 2015--- This is still my favorite sunscreen for the face! However, it's super hard to find at Whole Foods. I was worried that it was being discontinued, but I found you can find it on Amazon. :)

Original Review:

Wow, how I love this sunscreen.

I had written a very positive review two years ago for "L'Oreal - Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Spironolactone for Acne

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/11/2014

First of all, this is a prescription drug so you need to make sure to take the advice of your doctor with this. However, I can tell you that this has worked wonders on my skin when nothing else (prescription topicals and antibiotics) would! I have not tried accutane before so I can't speak for that.

Spironolactone (the brand name is Aldactone) was actually designed to control …

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Clear Skin Cream

4.0

May/10/2014

I really do like this stuff. I used it a lot in my college days, and I find myself now coming back to it years later. I wouldn't think of it as a treatment to help treat acne, but I do find that it keeps my acne-prone skin from getting worse and allows you to use retinol at the same time. It also makes a great moisturizer for my combo skin, and make-up looks nice over it. It seems to …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2014

I have really had problems where mascara flakes or somehow transfers under my eyes. Even with waterproof mascara. It makes me read reviews carefully before purchasing, and I have tried a few of the really well reviewed mascaras.

The formula for this mascara really adheres well to lashes. It doesn't get clumpy, unless you layer too much, and even then it's easy to comb out …

Masks - Aztec Secret - Indian Healing Clay

Dec/07/2013

I would never have found this stuff without reading about it on reviews on this site. Then, I looked at Acne.org (where it was reviewed highly) and Amazon (also reviewed highly)---there's a lot of consistency. Plus, I found it on Amazon for less than 10 dollars. For the tub you get, this will last you forever.

It does, after about 10 minutes for me, feel like its …
