Misc Beauty Tools - Tria Beauty - Laser Hair Removal System

Feb/28/2017

Okay, so: I said, in my review of Summer's Eve feminine wash a number of years ago, that it would probably be the most embarrassing review I'd ever post on MUA. I was wrong.

THIS review here, right before your very eyes, is about to be - far and away - the most embarrassing review I've ever posted on MUA and perhaps the single most embarrassing thing I've ever …

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss - Angel Food Cake

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/18/2016

I'm normally a lipstick gal, but I own a few shades of NYX Butter Gloss and I absolutely love them. The formula is moisturizing without being sticky and gives a gorgeous shine (it makes my lips look so much fuller that I was once asked if I'd used a plumping gloss!).

I have fair, neutral olive skin (foundation matches include MUFE Ultra HD in 117/Y225 and Revlon ColorStay …

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

5.0

Dec/18/2016

My hair type: medium thickness, chemically-straightened, and almost waist-length.

Just one(!) pump of this oil on damp hair before blow-drying leaves it soft, smooth, and shiny.

I think the trick to making this product work is figuring out exactly how much your hair needs. As with many oil-based products, it's incredibly easy to over-apply and doing so will leave your …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

Of the many wonderful gifts Mother Nature could have bestowed upon me, she chose ... acne! Awesome.

So, as you can probably guess, I'm really thankful for the Paula's Choice Acne Treatment.

The 2.5% concentration of benzoyl peroxide is strong enough to calm flare-ups without irritating or drying out the surrounding skin. Its thin, water-like texture makes it easy …

Hair Treatments - TRESemmé - Platinum Strength Renewing Deep Conditioning Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2015

This is a great product at an even greater price point. Prior to discovering the Platinum Strength Renewing Deep Conditioning Treatment, I was using a salon-quality masque that cost more than triple the price (!!!) - and I didn't love it nearly as much as I love this.

The majority of my hair is chemically straightened. Since I'm overdue for my next straightening (overdue is …

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser

Oct/10/2015

This is, quite honestly, one of my favorite skincare products I've ever used. Ever. This stuff is what I'd bring with me if I was going to be stuck on a desert island. No food? No shelter? No problem! I'll be too busy washing my face!

In all seriousness, though, I love this cleanser. It is true that a cleanser isn't the "be-all, end-all" of your skincare …

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex

I have combination skin, so I need a lighter moisturizer for the majority of my face - but the Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream works beautifully for my eye area! It keeps the delicate skin there soft, smooth, and moisturized. I use a different product during the day since this one doesn't have SPF, but it's my go-to eye cream for the evening. Highly recommended! :)

Oh, Korres Lip Butter. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! ;)
You impart just the right amount of color to my lips in a way that looks completely natural (even though my entire face is perpetually pale).
You have a pleasant, light scent that isn't overpowering (which is especially important for any product designed to be used on one's face).
And, most importantly …

Shampoo - Paul Mitchell - Tea Tree Special Shampoo

Mar/07/2013

I'm on the fence about Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Special Shampoo.

Does it do what it claims to do? Yes! A resounding yes. Although I wouldn't say I have oily hair, I'm still prone to those days where my scalp is greasy and gross. And this shampoo delivers! ;) It cuts right through the oil and takes care of any itchiness that comes along with it.

But I …

Conditioner - Shea Moisture - Organic Anti-Breakage Hair Masque Yucca & Baobab

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/05/2013

This is, without a doubt, my HG hair masque! :)
One of the main problems I've had with finding review-worthy hair and skin products is that what you see isn't always what you get. In a sea of hair masques, each company is going to try and stand out by printing the most enticing claim on its labels: "Infused with real shea butter! Moisturizes with avocado oil!" But if you …
