There's not much I can say here that hasn't been said before. I got this brush because I wanted something inexpensive to put in my cosmetics bag for my gym bag. I didn't want to get anything too expensive since my gym bag goes through a lot of wear and tear. This brush really surprised me not only in how soft it is, but also in how versatile it is. I've used this to apply …Read more

Brows - MILANI - Easybrow

Feb/02/2015

I picked this up at my local drugstore to keep in my gym bag when I needed to do my makeup quickly on the go. Normally I prefer use powder and wax for my brows, but that would mean taking too many things (powder compact, spoolie, wax, brushes, etc) and I wanted something that would be a good "all in one product."

I really like this pencil a lot and it does exactly what I …

Conditioner - Suave - Professionals Almond & Shea Butter

This is a nice conditioner. I found that it is about the maximum level of moisture that my fine hair can tolerate without looking flat or dull. This detangles well and leaves my hair soft and shiny after use. I think the smell is great -- it's just a nice, clean-smelling, neutral scent.

The main reason why I'm not repurchasing this is because my favorite "value" …

I can't believe I would fall in love with a $1.07 conditioner, but there's a first time for everything! Like some kind of addict, I just brought home two more bottles yesterday and I paid for them with the change at the bottom of my purse.

I'm not sure why I tried these to begin with. I suppose I am just generally not that picky about hair stuff and I'm willing …

Styling Products - Johnson & Johnson - No More Tangles - Spray Detangler

Jan/18/2015

I could definitely see this product working for other people, but it just didn't work for me!

Pros:
1) Great non-"babyish" smell
2) Does a great job of detangling with only a few sprays
3) The spritzer nozzle can be turned "on" and "off" so it won't leak or spray in your travel bag

Cons:
1) Makes my hair look very …

I picked this up to keep in my gym bag to use when I had to schedule my workouts and shower at the gym in the middle of the day. I didn't want or need anything fancy since I would only be needing it on occasion for half of a day.

On the one hand, I agree with a lot of the reviews on this product. This is a mascara that truly does it all (lengthens, adds volume, holds a curl) for …

Lip Gloss - wet n wild - Megaslicks Balm Stain (all colors)

Jan/15/2015

I picked this up today because I was looking for something easy to apply on the go but long-wearing enough that I could forget about it for a little while. I found that this had about 2 or 3 hours wear-time before it started fading and looking patchy. That's not bad, but I really didn't expect this to leave my lips so dry feeling at the end of that time. It went on moist and felt like a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Dove - Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion

Jan/12/2015

It takes me a long time to go through a bottle of this because I always forget to moisturize after I take a shower. So, the only occasion I really end up using this is when my skin starts to get uncomfortably dry and itchy. It moisturizes really well on the spot and absorbs nicely. It doesn't leave any weird film or residue on my skin. It isn't too thick so it spreads really well and a …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - St. Ives - Nourish & Soothe - Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash

Jan/12/2015

I love using luxurious bath products, but I can't justify literally washing my hard-earned money down the drain. I enjoy being gifted nice soaps and scrubs but when those run out, I typically reach for this. This is just a great "staple" item. It's not fancy, but it's not harsh or bare-bones-feeling either.

Many body-washes dry my skin out. While I …

I really liked the creamy consistency of this lotion. I tried it on my chapped hands and I liked that my hands didn't feel greasy to the touch. That said, I couldn't test it any further to see how well it did over time because I could not get over the smell of the product. I had to wash my hands immediately after applying this lotion to try and get the smell off. The smell lingers even …Read more
