Hair Treatments - Aphogee - Two-Step Protein Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2010

While my hair is not damaged from coloring/bleaching, it is extra fine and fragile and begins to break off badly after one use of a flat or curling iron even when coated with heat protective spray. My splits travel far up the hair shaft which makes them difficult to nip in the bud with a trim and they also tend to fray into many splits on one strand of hair. Enter Aphogee. This treatment, when …Read more

May/26/2007

Retails for around $7.99. I found mine at Walgreens. In a red box with the other Samy "Fat Hair" products.
<p>
I have fine hair, but a lot of it, that tends to fall flat and not hold style very easily. It also gets greasy easily and gets slightly frizzy in wheather that even hints of humidity.

This pomade did what I've wanted every …

Moisturizers - Kiss My Face - Peaches and Creme moisturizer with AHA

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/05/2007

I might have found my HG moisturizer. Keeps my face nice and soft but not heavy feeling. I have persistent acne and the AHA's in this keep it under control even when I'm not using any topical acne medications. The smell is devine.

UPDATE: I'm still really enjoying this moisturizer. The AHA is still keeping my acne nicely under control and I'm not using any …

Nov/21/2006

Update: I'm still seeing this in stores so I believe Ponds just decided to re-package it. I still love it. On my second tub, plan to rebuy when I run out again.

Update: I still absolutely love this stuff. However, I've only seen it recently with a "clearance" tag attached to it so I'm so worried that they are not making it anymore. …

Second update: After a few months of use I really wasn't noticing any difference in my acne so I've stopped using. I'm now using a simpler regimine of cleanser, moisturizer, and microdermabrasion with Ponds Purely Polished. My skin is looking amazing!
<P>
Update: Still loving this product. I'm using this as an all over treatment, spot treating with tea tree …

update: the first time i used these pads (when they first came out) i had wonderful results. fast forward a year later and i decide to shell out the money again hoping for the same wonderful results. my skin did improve some, but not as drastically as it did the first time as i wanted it to. due to the price i've decided that the results were not worth it.

if you can afford …

Polishes - Essie - National Velvet

5.0

Jan/16/2006

National Velvet is a lovely deep berry color with very fine shimmer. To me, it is INRAW's cousin-has the same shimmery base, but is a deep berry wine instead of a candy apple red. On a swatch card, National Velvet looks identical to Bagota Blackberry to me but I think National Velvet has more character with a better shimmer base. I haven't tried it on my tips yet, but my toes look …Read more

Product comes in a blue box filled with 5 single serve pouches. Retails for approximately $15 (or $3 per use).

Before I used this product I shampood my hair (I used Vo5 Kiwi lime
clarifying shampoo) because I had products in my hair that contained
-icones or oils. If you have not used products that day or have not
used ones containing -icones or oils, shampooing is …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Laquer - I'm Not Really A Waitress

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2006

INRAW is a gorgeous candy apple red with a subtle and classy shimmer. Up close you can see the depth of that shimmer...from far away it just looks deliciously glossy. On me, one coat (and it covers well in just one coat!) gives a brighter red closer to a fire engine red (but not quite). I prefer 2 coats because I get that deep candy apple color that really compliments almost any skintone. I …Read more

Hair - L'Oreal Paris - L'oreal Kids shampoo - Cherry Almond

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2005

I have fine hair but lots of it. Ends are damaged and dry. Oily scalp.

So far I am really enjoying this 2-in-1 shampoo but I definitely don't rely on it for conditioning. That being said, it cleans my hair very well without over drying it. The scent is wonderful-lovely without being overly cherry (like cough syrup). The smell does not linger which is fine with me. Hours …
