Conditioner - Garnier - Triple Nutrition Conditioner

Not bad for a conditioner. Nice thick consistency with good slip, but I don't think it was as moisturizing as it claims. The scent is really strong; my roommate loved the scent and I find it tolerably fruity, but others may find it overpowering. I have wavy hair and while I don't think it got rid of frizz enough, I did feel like it protected my ends well from damage. I wouldn't …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Ageless Intensives Tone Correcting Moisture SPF 30

Nov/12/2016

The Neutrogena Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 is what I had; I'm pretty sure it's the same thing as what is pictured here.

Gosh how I love this product. Lightweight, yet offered great skin benefits. Great sun protection without feeling greasy or disturbing my somewhat sensitive and acne prone combination skin. Seriously, the retinol in this formula actually helped …

Fragrances - Giorgio Armani - Si Eau de Parfum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2016

I was given a sample of this by a pushy sales associate at Macy's when I was trying to buy my sister a perfume as a gift. She said Si was one of their best sellers. I really did expect to like this; fruitchoulis and sweet patchouli blends are among my most recent favorites. My longtime love, Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire, is such a blend, as are my new favorites, DKNY MyNY by Donna …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Preferred Fragrance Stunner (Bombshell by Victoria's Secret)

4.0

Nov/02/2016

For a cheapie, this one ain't bad at all. I bought the gift set at Rainbow for ~$5, which included the lotion (used this twice and tossed it before a move; kind of plastic-y, which many gift set lotions are), rollerball, and 50 ml perfume spray.

I have to say, it does match Bombshell's notes pretty accurately. To me, Bombshell smells like men's cologne in the opening …

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Britney Spears - Island Fantasy

Nov/01/2016

I am so torn on this review. Scent-wise, this is probably one of the nicest and most unique offerings from Britney's Fantasy line. I'd even go so far as saying it's in my top 5 of all her fragrances (behind Cosmic Radiance, Rocker Femme Fantasy, original Fantasy, and Curious).

The top notes start with a powerful burst of watermelon, with a nice and refreshing citrus …

Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Mela-D Daily depigmenting care SPF15

1.0

Nov/01/2016

I've been lucky enough to test out a bunch of L'Oreal products, including from the company's drugstore holdings (Garnier, L'Oreal) to high-end (La Roche Posay, Vichy). Some of it works great, some of it terrible. The Mela-D SPF 15 falls into the terrible category.

I guess I should be comparing it to the Vichy Reti-C SPF 15 I had used (and hoarded) until it became …

Fragrances - Juicy Couture - Fragrance

Aug/24/2016

White floral powerhouse; not really for the faint of heart or those who are ambivalent on those kinds of fragrances. I'm a little torn on whether to give this a four or a five, mainly because there's debate among myself and my loved ones regarding the actual notes. I smell tuberose and jasmine (the latter of which isn't in here), others smell gardenia or magnolia, neither of which …Read more

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2016

This was another discount store find; I paid maybe $4-5 for it? Anyway, it's probably a lot less than what it retails for, which means that I don't feel bad that it didn't really work for me.

I've got combination, though sensitive and acne prone skin. I like cream cleansers, and I especially prefer them with my new Clarisonic; they have more heft for the brush. I …

Styling Products - Garnier - Curl Calm Down Anti-Frizz Cream

2.0

Apr/04/2016

Found this at Lot Less, a closeouts/discount store similar to Big Lots in the NYC area, for $2.99. I'm assuming that the product is being discontinued.

This is a lightweight cream styler with moisturizing properties. I don't know if I got an old bottle or what, but the texture of this was hella weird. It felt gritty, like it had bits of sand mixed in with the cream. Every …

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Britney Spears - Midnight Fantasy

Mar/20/2016

I'm a huge Britney fan, but I wasn't a huge fan of the perfumes except for Cosmic Radiance, as most of them were strong gourmands and I didn't like that. Now my nose has evolved, and I find myself loving gourmands, and loving her Fantasy line. I have Fantasy, Island Fantasy, Rocker Femme Fantasy, and Midnight Fantasy, plus original Radiance (my fave, Cosmic Radiance, is long since …Read more
