Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Vanilla Bean Lip Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/29/2014

I love anything vanilla, so when I saw Burt's Bees came out with a vanilla balm, I had to try it. I don't love or hate the original Burt's Bees, but there are other balms I'd rather use. I used this a few times during the day, and although it smelled delicious (like birthday cake), I felt like I had to constantly reapply it and still my lips never felt moisturized. My lips …Read more

Lip Treatments - Alba Botanica - Coconut Cream Lip Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2013

I've tried almost every lip balm available in the drugstore, from Blistex to Burt's Bees and everything in between. I use Aquaphor on my lips at night, so during the day I just need a simple moisturizing balm to maintain and keep my lips hydrated, and I always prefer something that smells and tastes good. Most drugstore lip balms either don't moisturize well, moisturize too much …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2013

I prefer using oils and gels to lotions when it comes to moisturizing, and I'm a huge fan of Palmers cocoa butter lotion so when I came across good reviews for the oil, I had to try it. I paid about $6 for a bottle at Walmart. I thought that was a little steep, but the bottle lasted longer than I expected. The smell took a little time to get used to. It reminds me of the Palmers cocoa butter …Read more

Lip Treatments - Blistex - Simple and Sensitive

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2013

I'm a fan of the medicated Blistex, so I thought I might give this a try based on the good reviews. I picked it up at Walmart for $0.98. I'm glad it wasn't much, because this didn't do anything for me. My lips aren't overly dry or chapped, so most drugstore balms work just fine. This, however, was almost completely useless. I felt like it never actually sunk in to …Read more

Powder - Physicians Formula - Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2013

I generally like most Physician's Formula powders, so when I saw the new Beauty Balm powder, I couldn't wait to try it. I was surprised to see there were only two shades available, so I picked the lighter which was Light/Medium. The packaging is the same as other PF powders, the compact holds the powder pan which lifts up to reveal a mirror on the underside of the pan, as well a brush …Read more

Hair Treatments - Ion - Crystal Clarifying Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2013

I've been coloring and highlighting my hair for years, and occasionally because of how porous my ends are, it will pull green or gray. I used to think the only way to fix that was to use a toner or another all over color, but a stylist at my salon recommended using a clarifying treatment and to my surprise, it worked. A clarifying treatment at the salon is around $20, but you can pick up …Read more

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Instant Cuticle Remover

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2012

I picked this up after reading though all the rave reviews and I definitely believe it lives up to it's claim. I used it according to the directions, which a number of reviewers mentioned is extremely important. I applied it to two nails at a time, pushed the cuticle back, and washed it off with warm, soapy water. My cuticles looked perfect after I finished. They weren't dry or peeling …Read more

Lip Treatments - Carmex - vanilla click stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2012

I really like this stuff. I've been looking for a vanilla lip balm but this is the first one I've found that smells great and actually works. The tube is convenient, and the vanilla really helps mellow out the Carmex scent. This is the first lip balm that actually leaves my lips moisturized even after it wears off, so I'm not stuck in that cycle of constantly reapplying just to …Read more

Lip Treatments - Chapstick - Medicated

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2012

I'm amazed at how well this stuff works, especially something that only costs $1. I must have tried upwards of 20 different lip balms trying to find something to sooth my chapped lips, and nothing would work. They would provide temporary relief, but after they wore off my lips were even more painfully chapped than they were in the first place. I finally pulled this out of my makeup drawer …Read more

Lip Treatments - eos - LE Strawberry Sorbet & Passionfruit 2-Pack

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2012

I picked up the strawberry sorbet scented balm at Target after the pink packaging caught my eye. I thought they'd be miracle products based on all the rave reviews, but I wasn't the least bit impressed. The balm itself is kind of hard, so it doesn't apply very smooth. It feels a little more cakey on my lips than other balms do, and I don't feel like it's really …Read more
