This review is for the green "Normal" gel. I have naturally curly hair, and I love this gel! It only takes a little to define my curls and eliminate frizz without making my hair hard and crunchy. It lasts all day. The price is great online. My only cons are: it has a strong smell in the container, and that it's hard to find in stores. The smell fades, and this is easily available …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Johnson & Johnson - Baby Lotion

Sep/14/2014

I never thought I'd write a review for baby lotion, seeing as I'm in my late 20s and don't have kids! My Nivea body lotion was just too thick and rich for the weather, but I still needed a lotion. I've used Johnson & Johnson's No More Tangles on my hair successfully, so I figured I'd give the baby lotion a try. It's very lightweight, absorbs with minimal …Read more

I bought this in Ivory. I have pale skin with pink undertones. Most fair/ivory shades of foundation are either too dark or too yellow. I figured for about $3, what did I have to lose?
I could not get this to come out of the bottle easily, so I used a Q-tip to remove some foundation from the bottle, apply to the back of my hand, and use a foundation brush to apply it to my face. If I needed …

Feb/09/2014

I've been polishing my nails nearly every week lately, and my nails were showing the effects! My nails felt dry and ridged when they had nothing on them, so I bought this strengthener to use under polish or when I don't feel like doing a colored manicure. It dries very quickly and leaves a nice shine.I applied a new coat of this everyday for a week, without adding any other polish on …Read more

Cleansers - Basis - Vitamin Bar

Nov/03/2013

Another face soap had been leaving my skin dry, irritated and with pimples along my chin and on my cheeks, which rarely happens. As soon as I used this soap the first time, my face felt comfortable after washing. It left my skin smooth and soft instead of rough and stripped like my old soap. It has a mild, sweet citrus scent, which I really enjoy. Within 3 days, my skin has cleared up!The only …Read more

Cleansers - Dove - Beauty Bar - Sensitive Skin

Oct/31/2013

I needed more face cleanser since I was about to run out, and I decided to try this after reading so many positive reviews. I have combination skin which typically doesn't react to products. I had a few pimples on my chin prior to using this bar, and thought maybe something more "sensitive" would help since acne products are too drying for me. Well, this soap has dried out my whole …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Facial Soap Mild

5.0

Mar/10/2013

I originally tried this back in 2007. I liked it then, but ultimately stopped using it because the dish it came in didn't let the water drain away from the soap, leaving it really squishy and gunky on the bottom. I also seem to remember it made my cheeks a little dry. I've recently bought a new bar, and the dish has holes to allow water to drain away from the bar which is perfect. So …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Double Duty Base & Top Coat

Jan/20/2013

I tried this as a base coat and top coat for the first time today. I applied this, two coats of polish, and then one last coat of this. Three hours later, it's chipping and flaking off. It dries quickly as a base coat, and polish applies well over it. As a top coat, it's terrible! I didn't do anything rough on my hands, and my polish is just chipping off! I'll try something …Read more

5.0

Oct/06/2012

I've tried so many face washes over the years, and I think I've finally found my "holy grail"! I have combination skin with occasional blemishes. I've used this for two weeks now, and my skin just looks so much better! This cleanser foams well, removes makeup (including eye makeup, without irritating my eyes at all!), and rinses cleanly. After use, my face feels soft and …Read more

Aug/12/2012

I finally got around to trying this toner. It was around $11 at Target. They've recently changed the packaging so it's now in a plastic bottle instead of the glass (I added a picture above). This toner smells lightly of roses, doesn't burn or sting my combination skin, and leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed. It doesn't leave a sticky residue like other toners I've …Read more
