Other - Unlisted Brand - Birchbox

It's my first month with Birchbox, and it was much better than Ipsy, though I still love Ipsy. The thing is I got so much makeup, and Ipsy products is mostly makeup, which is fine, but I'm just getting too much. Some of Ipsy products are very cheap, though, which is also fine for the price.

However, Birchbox was all a little better, little more well made, better quality …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Plus White - 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel

Jan/26/2014

It works VERY well!

First, let me say that my yellowing teeth are surface stains. In other words, I drink a liter of coffee everyday. I drink red wine on the weekends. In the winter, I might add a pot or two of black/orange tea or earl grey or something.

Well, anyway, I've been using strips from the drugstore forever, but even the "sensitive teeth ones" …

Primer/ Corrector - Etude House - Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base

Jan/21/2014

This is the best primer that I have ever used. I tried Laura Geller Spackle, and it was a total joke when compared to this. The spackle is thin and runny and doesn't do anything at all.

This actually smoothed out my skin and made it look really nice and picture perfect. Smoothed out my pores unbelievalby. I have little tiny forehead lines coming in, and this erases those. Lastly …

Styling Products - Garnier - Garnier Fructis Survivor Rough It Putty

Jan/19/2014

Very cool. I used this to straighten my hair with and the results were amazing. I have long, wavy hair. I applied this while damp and went over it with a wet-to-dry straightener. I've never seen my hair so smooth before! And shiny! Usually, it looks feathery and straw like no matter what hair serum I use.

I discovered this putty works well with heat on accident. I usually use a …

Conditioner - Clairol - Herbal Essences None of Your Frizziness Conditioner

Jan/11/2014

I gotta say that this stuff smells amazingly mandarin and so clean. I just love it! And wow, my hair is sooo smooth! I honestly wonder if this could dry my hair out if I use it too much, though, because it does have some citrus in it. However, I wonder if the citrus is supposed to be in lieu of short chain alcohols, of which I didn't see any on this conditioner.

I should note …

Like many others, the smell really bothers me. It works, don't get me wrong; in fact, it works really well. It's very moisturizing and left my hair very soft. But the god awful smell. You have no choice but to rinse, unlike other cleansing conditioners, because you don't want this smell to linger.

The bottle isn't very good. Although if you have finer hair, then …

Styling Products - Wen by Chaz Dean - Sweet Almond Mint Styling Ceme

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2013

This works much better than the cucumber aloe styling creme, which make my hair frizz out and dry. This sweet almond is smoothing and smells great, but the antifrizz version of this really sucks. Might as well just get the regular almond mint because it works the same.

If you need a little more moisture and smoothing, lavender or fig.

Lotions/ Creams - Curél - Curel Targeted Therapy Foot Cream

Nov/26/2013

This is a gimmick. This lotion is the exact same lotion as every other one they make. It is no different than a basic all purpose lotion. There is nothing special about it. It's a waste of money. These guys took regular lotion and put it in a bottle and called it foot lotion, but I bought it after reading the reviews. I was surprised at how ineffective it was, turned it over and read the …Read more

Nov/17/2013

This styling creme is very nice. It left my hair nice and soft, smooth and de poofed. I had to take one lippie off because it smells nothing like the cleansing conditioner. In fact, I think it smells really bad. It's gonna be hard to finish this. I only hope it doesn't linger in the morning. It's like a strong cinnamon scent. To be fair, I've never liked cinnamon scents, but …Read more

Shampoo - Renpure - Ren Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner

Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2013

This is a very nice cleansing conditioner. It smoothed, de-frizzed and de poofed my wavy hair. The only thing that I can say, negative about it, is this left my hair crunchier than HairOne and Wen. I have to say that, hands down, Hair One is better and perhaps equal to Wen. Renpure is also a great alternative, and you get more for your money. Also, I woke up the next morning and not a single hair …Read more
