These are an absolute lifesaver for my super oily skin. Rather than repeatedly powdering over the day (which can make my makeup look cakey or chalky), I use these to soak up the oil right through my foundation. Additionally, it helps prevent my foundation from breaking up or pooling into my pores. And for only $5.99? You can't beat it!

Jan/26/2015

I love this body wash! It has a very nice, fresh scent and is a gentle yet effective exfoliator that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. In fact, I think it's helped clear up some of the acne on my back. I don't use it everyday, only a few times a week, and then follow up with my Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Body Lotion (which I also love) and my skin is noticeably …Read more

I was very fortunate to receive this as a gift for my birthday and it has become my everyday, all occasions palette!

It has a great mix of mattes, satins, and even a bit of glitter! Whether I'm looking for a neutral everyday look or something more glamorous, this palette has it. Also, it is a great deal for the money considering the wide array of eyeshadow options.

I will hate this stuff forever.

A few years ago, I had mild/moderate acne (nothing too terrible) and decided to give ProActiv a go since it seemed to be working for my sister. I used it for about a month without any positive effects (rather it made my skin red and irritated) and so I gave it up--big mistake!

My skin became so much worse after I stopped using it--apparently …

I love this stuff! I have highlighted hair that was starting to get a bit brassy (especially at the ends) and subsequently headed to Ulta to find a purple shampoo. I was about to purchase a more expensive alternative, when I stumbled across Beach Blondes for $9.99! I decided it was worth a go and am so glad I did.

I use it once every one or two weeks. I shampoo as normal, tie my hair …

This is a pretty good mascara, although I think there are waaay better options from the drugstore, including the original L'Oreal Butterfly mascara, Maybelline Full 'N Soft, and (my all-time favorite!) L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black.

It does a nice job of lengthening without clumping--making it a great mascara for everyday use when I don't want anything too …

Oh man, what a disappointment :(

I've used these for nearly a month and have finally come to the conclusion that they are causing closed comedomes ALL over my forehead and are actually aggravating the hormonal acne around my mouth. It's unfortunate because they do make my skin feel quite a bit softer and are oh-so-cheap... I was hoping that they would be a good BHA …

I have been using this mascara for over six years and still love it. I've strayed now and again, but I always come back to it. The brush is fantastic and the formula makes my lashes long and thick without being clumpy--not to mention the fact it's cheap and you can find it pretty much anywhere.

However, I will say that it takes a few uses for the mascara to hit its …
