Hair Treatments - Bumble and bumble - Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco Masque

Dec/03/2011

I have been lemming this product for years now, but the cost has kept me from breaking down to buy it. Recently, I saw that this was offered as a sample through Sephora so I thought that would be the perfect way to kill the lemming. Yeah...not so much. I tried the sample and was immediately won over. My hair has been so dry, tangly and rough but after using this product it was transformed. I …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Sanitas Glycolic Citrus Cleanser

Sep/28/2009

I live in the Eastern US and spent a week in Colorado with some friends and they had this cleanser that they encouraged me to try. I have oily skin and get cystic acne regularly and I was really happy with this cleanser. It has a citrusy scent and is a clear liquid. While I was using it, it really helped to keep my skin clear without making it feel tight or dry. I came home and ordered some for …Read more

Shampoo - Nexxus - Therappe

I didn't find this shampoo to be anything special. I kept using it because I kept seeing good things about it, but it's just not a good product for me.
I have long, dyed, straight hair which ended up really frizzy every time I used this shampoo.

Conditioner - Jessicurl - Aloeba Daily Conditioner

I tried the Aloeba as a regular conditioner on my fine hair, but it just wasn't enough. However, I tried it as a leave in (little pea size amount) and I LOVE it! This is my new HG leave in. I've had a hard time finding a leave in that isn't too heavy, but this works like a dream.

Jan/05/2008

I've been using other versions of Voluminous for years now with success, so I was really excited to see this version at the store. It's a huge disappointment! This stuff will stick to everything EXCEPT for my lashes and it doesn't matter how careful I am, whether I wipe off the brush first, etc. A few hours of wear and I have that terrible "heroine chic" look from how …Read more

Lip Gloss - Neutrogena - Moisture Shine Gloss in Whisper

4.0

I really like Whisper. I hate the scent and taste though, which is why I subtracted a lippie.
I'm NC20 with highly pigmented lips and this pale peachy pink gloss tones them down just enough and makes them look a little plumper.

Fragrances - Mary Kay - Belara Eau de Parfum

I bought this as a roll on and I really like the scent. I usually can't wear florals, but this one seems to be complex enough to work on me. I agree that it's sort of a laundry, clean smell.
Don't know if I would buy a full sized bottle, but the roll on is perfect for my purse to do little fragrance touch ups after a long day.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Myth

I bought this l/s as a prop to use for a 60s-70s party I was going to.
Boy, is this some pale l/s! Putting this on alone makes me look like death, but with the right liner (not sure what that is yet!) or gloss (I use Stila's lip glaze in Nutmeg Spice so far) this could be beautiful.
It does have a dry texture and like other reviewers have said, you should have nicely exfoliated …

Conditioner - TIGI - Bedhead Moisture Maniac Conditioner

This is a great conditioner that I found thanks to Marlena_M. This is a cone free conditioner which is what I was looking for.
I wouldn't use this as a deep treatment or expect those kinds of results, but the conditioner as an every day rinse out detangler is great! My hair is shiny and happy when I use this with the Terax Collagene.

***12-3-11 UPDATE***
I suspect that …

Shampoo - TIGI - Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo

Dec/15/2007

I can't believe this is what they pair with Moisture Maniac conditioner! First of all, I noticed that the second ingredient is SLS. Forgive me, off the top of my head I can't remember if it's Lauryl or Laureth, but you get the idea.
This stuff was like washing my hair with detergent. My hair felt fuzzy and dry afterwards. It may make a good clarifier, but if that is the case …
