Lotions/ Creams - Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

3.0

Feb/15/2011

I like it because it's cheap and reminds me of my grandmother, who used the stuff religiously. There are positives and negatives here. It makes my skin very soft and smooth immediately, and sinks in/dries very quickly, so I am not waiting 5 minutes for my cream to dry. Also, you only need a tiny dab. Downside, it doesn't moisturize as much as a really high quality hand cream, leaving my …Read more

Polishes - BORGHESE - Stellare Notte

The color is so beautiful in the bottle. But, unfortunately, as others have said, the nail color doesn't quite live up to that. Plus, 3 coats are needed for opacity, not quite the shine or finish I was hoping for, and chipping on tips on the first day, even with my rubberized base coat, and a top coat. Also, the bottle sucks with a grandma- looking cap that's hard to twist off. the …Read more

Truly did save my winter-chapped lips! Also has spf and a nice feel, plus a matte look that lasts hours. I find this is also good under lipstick, especially matte lipstick that tends to be drying. Great!

Lotions/ Creams - AVEDA - Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme

I bought this because the place I go was all out of l'occitane shea hand cream (my usual HG). This is much lighter, but moisturizes really well and smells great. It's not as rich as the l'occitane, but had a cumulative effect when used often. Also not sticky- nice silky texture. I'd call it a higher quality version of bliss's high intensity hand cream. Will definitely be …Read more

Got this as a gift, and I really like it! The eye colors are all excellent, and blend together well. It's bold, but totally wearable. The case is a bit big, though the mini-pallettes pop out, the mirror is in the big part. But still a super-cute case. Blushes are also very vibrant, not subtle at all, so you need a very light hand with those. I'd also prefer a formula without talc, but …Read more

Moisturizers - Caudalie - Premier Cru La Creme

5.0

Dec/29/2010

It is fantastic! This is the only cream I have used that rivals, maybe surpasses fresh creme ancienne in moisturizing and brightening ability. It has a light, whipped texure that sinks in perfectly and is still rich. Leaves my skin as soft as a child's, and helps with breakouts and evenness. Also has a divine smell! The only downside, like creme ancienne, is the price- over $100 for an ounce …Read more

Deodorants - Lavanila - The Healthy Deodorant

I love lavanila, but the deodorant is mediocre. It smells wonderful, has natural ingredients, etc, but wears off quickly and doesn't even mask heavy sweating. It's more like a fragrant underarm butter. I'll try it with a deodorant crystal, but I'm still looking for a really nice, natural deodorant.

Styling Products - SEBASTIAN - Crude Clay [DISCONTINUED]

This stuff is the only thing that will save me from a bad hair day, in a pinch. Of course, I have naturally curly hair that I like to wear wild, so your results may vary. But it gives amazing body and texture. Unfortunately, it has silicones and also is hard to get out. I only use a teeny-tiny amount, and it doesn't give me any problems.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Naturally Glossy Mascara

I like this one a lot because it looks really natural and does not clump. It's one step up from a clear mascara. FYI I have black, naturally curly lashes though, so I don't need that much enhancement.
