BB Cream - Neutrogena - Visibly Even BB cream

2.0

Thick and chalky. Chalkier than my foundation, which surprised me because I thought BB creams were supposed to be lighter than foundation. Smells chemically. Average coverage and spreadability. Packaging is not recyclable, which makes me sad that this will sit in a landfill for 500 years when it wasn't that good of a product.

Conditioner - PANTENE - Gold Series Moisture Boost Conditioner

Watery given the packaging. I expected a thick cream with the packaging, but this wasn't. I rarely buy product in plastic tapered squeeze bottles because I can't recycle them. Usually those products are quite thick, thus the un-recyclable packaging. However, this is quite watery for price too. It seems adequate as a conditioner. Not thick enough for my hair, but I can't return it …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

This was not waterproof for me. It didn't survive a hot tub, it didn't survive swimming.
Neither did it add much volume or length to my lashes, which is fine since I like a natural look, but I was disappointed that after being in various types of water over different days, that it didn't even stay on in the water for me :(

Great conditioner-thick, coats hair, works well for the price point but terrible packaging. I rarely buy products in tubes because you can't get the last bit out, have to fight it toward the end (trying to squeeze these bottles with slippery shower hands is so frustrating ineffective) and you can't recycle the container.

Hair Treatments - TRESemmé - Nourishing Rituals Protein Renewal Creme

1.0

Mar/09/2017

This did nothing for my hair-no shine, no strength, no manageability, no moisture--so I've gone back to dissolved gelatin for my protein treatment. I tried using it intermittently (in case I need more moisture and less protein), I tried using it a little more often, and I tried using it with the frequency you would for a hair that needs a lot of protein. I noticed no change no matter what I …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Oscar Blandi - Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray

2.0

Jan/09/2017

Smells great but a bad choice for brunettes, OR if you have curls or waves. As a brunette with curls and waves (that you really cannot brush unless you want frizz), this did not cut it for me and I went back to brushing in 1 part cornstarch to 2 parts cocoa powder.

It worked fairly well and smelled good. I just can't use a product that must be brushed out without ruining my …

Dry Shampoo - Salon Grafix - Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Salon Grafix's invisible dry spray shampoo really is invisible. Most dry shampoos, even the ones that claim to work on brunettes, are not invisible and have to brushed out--which is a problem if you have curly hair that cannot be brushed. This is truly invisible which I loved. I thought it was average in effectiveness. I did find it really stinky--the stinkiest dry shampoo I've …Read more

I did not find that Age Beautiful Intense Strengthening Treatment helped my hair. I expected my hair to be softer, shinier, feel stronger, something, but I didn't not notice any difference. If anything, I felt my hair was a bit more brittle after using this four times over six weeks. I am not yet clear on how much protein v conditioning my hair needs. This has keratin protein and I suspect …Read more

I have combo hair: wavy on the crown and curly underneath. This is terrific for wavy hair and manages my frizz. I mostly applied it to dry hair that had frizzed out to tame it. I didn't notice it strengthening my hair but then again I didn't use it as directed for wet hair because it didn't work as well for me that way. Cheap. Smells good. Very happy with it.
