Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Argan Oil

For hair, this is like a silicone serum without the silicone. 'Nuff said really! Shiny, glossy, smooth, silky hair. I was about to give up on hair oils altogether before I discovered this stuff. Coconut oil makes my hair straw like, other oils just sit on top and make it greasy. Worth the hype honestly. Use like you would a silicone serum and be amazed!

Top/Base Coats - essence - Express Dry Drops

5.0

10 months ago

Whaaat. I purposefully did a haphazard job painting my nails to truly test these out. I did a base coat, 2 coats of essence gel polish, and then the gel top coat. Put a drop on each nail, left to sit for a minute, then rubbed the oil on evenly and let sit for another 5 minutes. Then I washed my hands of the oil residue and I was good to go!

I literally did a full 4-layer paint job from …

Fragrances - Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum

May/02/2018

I shied away from buying another bottle for the longest time, because I was so spooked by all the hype about reformulation and terrible longevity. I bought the EDT just because I knew I couldn't cope in my heart if the EDP wasn't as I remembered.

But, here I sit and the jury is in: she's exactly the girl I fell in love with in 2010. People may say she's changed, but …

Deodorants - NIVEA - Pearl & Beauty Deodorant Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2018

The smell is probably the best I've encountered of any women's deodorants. Subtle and powdery but also a bit floral, just lovely. It doesn't linger long after the initial spray so it doesn't clash with perfumes. The skin is left with a really nice, fresh, powdery and cool feel even when you reapply after sweating. No marks on anything.

It's not terribly …

Hair Treatments - Lee Stafford - Hair Lengthening Treatment Intensive Conditioning

5.0

Feb/20/2018

Wow! OK, real talk, I'm not sure if this actually has some witchery that actually makes your hair grow. I have noticed a difference, but I could chalk it up to a couple things:

1) It's a scalp treatment as well as a hair treatment. It banishes dandruff, leave your scalp feeling wonderfully clean, and reduces oilyness at the roots that might prompt you to wash your hair before …

Hair - TRESemmé - Expert Botanique Damage Recovery with Macadamia Oil

4.0

Jan/06/2018

Good value! Lacks THAT tresemme smell that makes me nauseous, actually smells rather nice, an expensive vanilla kind of smell. It leaves my hair really soft, smooth, and nicely scented.

My only gripe is that even with very dry, frizzy hair, this set is too moisturizing. But on the other hand, this means I can actually skip conditioner on the top part of my head and use it from the ears …

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Black Orchid Eau de Parfum

Dec/20/2017

Oh my goodness. I tried to like it, I did, but this fragrance is simply trying too hard. I can see a very bold, very vampish woman using this and pulling it off, but let's be real most of us aren't her. It's only wearable if you're dressed to look congruent with what this fragrance throws.

Far too masculine for my taste. I powered through the opening notes (very …

Fragrances - Lolita Lempicka - Eau de Parfum

Dec/16/2017

Lolita is pleasant enough, but unfortunately I am just too tired of fragrances with fruity notes to enjoy this at the moment. I was skeptical about the licorice and anise notes, but I was surprised how well they blended with the rest of the notes and didn't smell at all like licorice. I also enjoyed the ivy notes, which kept the fragrance somewhat reigned in from being too sweet …Read more

Dec/16/2017

I was really jazzed to give this one a try, as I'd never smelled it before. Or so I thought. I sprayed it and it immediately hit me: yes, yes I have. A million, trillion, ba-zillion times. Even if not the actual fragrance (which I have indeed, undoubtedly), this smells like every shampoo and body wash with fruity notes these days. But I know Fantasy was the one who started the …Read more

Pretty, cute, innocent, and not apologetic about it. I love putting this on when I want to smell vaguely nice, but don't want to make a statement. It subtly sweetens the air around you, and it's one of the only perfumes my SO commented on without prompting. It doesn't scream ''perfume'', it whispers ''I smell nice''. Comforting and warm …Read more
