This is my HG product for when I don’t want to blow dry my hair. I am not sure what sorcery they are performing, but this stuff takes my baby fine, slightly wavy shoulder length hair and adds volume, a controlled wave, while taming frizz and leaving my hair super soft. I got this in a fab fit fun box and while I normally stay away from leave in conditioners since my hair usually gets weighed …Read more

I am surprised (kind of) at the negative reviews, but I can see why. I already have longish black lashes that just happen to be getting a bit sparse with age along with deep set eyes. If I use “normal” mascara, even waterproof, I get raccoon eyes after a few hours. This mascara, for some reason, maybe due to the type of brush, just lightly coats and defines my lashes, making them appear more …Read more

I usually cheap out on cleanser, and I have used the Trader Joe's Nourish cleanser for years now. TJ's does the job, but I like this a lot more. It makes cleaning my skin in the morning a real treat, and leaves my mature skin a lot softer. It has a nice light rose smell, and a nice gel consistency.

I was hesitant to buy this but I really liked the idea of the product and some of the colors so I decided to try it out. I ended up buying the color cub. It took a little work getting the right application, but I really like the overall look of the product. It isn’t meant to be highly pigmented, just a sheer wash of color. When I first tried it, I used too much product and it creased a bit …Read more

I got the color Beam as a gift, and I am planning on purchasing another color or two. This is one of the prettiest blush products I have used, very natural looking. The only con is the packaging can make it easy to dispense too much product.

I recently “rediscovered” this product, after thinking that there must be something “better” for my skin.

I used this in my early 30’s, before BB creams were popular and I wanted something lighter than foundation, but still with a bit of coverage. I liked it back then, but got bored and started trying a bunch of BB creams. I forgot about this stuff for the most part.

Now …

This is my least favorite in the nourish line of products. I have been using it for a few months, and it doesn’t seem to provide much benefit. I do like the orange scent however, but I won’t bother buying again.

Another good basic staple from TJs. It isn’t fancy, but it does the job and is only $10 for a large container. I don’t love the packaging as the moisturizer can solidify in the pump and clog it, adding waste, but since it is so cheap, it isn’t a huge deal.

After spending a lot of money on Purity cleanser over the years, I tried this on a whim when I saw it at Trader Joe’s. It is a very good solid cleanser for my skin, which I would describe as normal to slightly oily with a few dry patches in the winter. I use this with a clairasonic mia, and the jar lasts about a year. Excellent value and good product. It does not have much of an odor at all …Read more
