Vit C serums are essential, but the ones I've tried caused irritation and inflammation and never seemed to fully absorb. This serum is on another level. It sinks in beautifully, causes no adverse reacts, and WORKS. For context, I use this in the morning with the DE B-Hydra layered over, and at night I use the DE TLC glycolic with Accure Organics marula oil.

After a few weeks …

Polishes - Essie - Find Me an Oasis

I don't gravitate toward blue/green polishes, but this really caught my eye. I like pure white manicures, and this is a softer, subtle, pretty alternative to that. It's really just a tiny icy hint of blue. Really pops on my pail, cool-toned skin and I can imagine wearing this almost any time of year.

I'm quite impressed. This leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth, without weighing it down or turning it into a greaseball (I'm looking at you, Dove). I have very thick and wavy hair that tends to be coarse and dry, but this gives me the silky hair that I'm used to only getting with a blowout. I've tested this both blow-dry and air-dry, and the results are about the same -- …Read more

Mar/22/2012

From the reviews, this is a hit-or-miss product. I'm one of the lucky ones - this worked out great for me. I generally have clear skin, but I was looking for a basic, inexpensive but nevertheless quality moisturizer without SPF for daytime use (I use a separate sunscreen). Previously I was using the Cerave lotion, but read that the facial formulas had even better ingredients; the …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Mudslide

On my NC20 skin this was darker than a true nude, but still a beautiful rosy silky matte neutral that really flatters my skin tone. I love the Complete Salon Manicure line -- I get really excellent wear from these polishes and I like the wide flat bush (I have large, wide nails, and this helps avoid streaking for me.)
This is a staple polish for certain.

Shave Products - Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel

May/05/2011

I had such high hopes after hearing so many good things about this product. I'm often a soap-and-water shave girl, sometimes splurging on CVS gel, and I always go too long before changing my razor. And I've never in my life had any problems with ingrowns, bumps, or irritation.

This product destroyed my legs -- utterly. Did it work? Absolutely - in most places it's …

Oh my goodness, I could marry this hair dryer. This is my first professional (non drugstore) hair dryer purchase; considering how low the price for this was on folica.com (i paid about $120), it was completely worth the extra money. It is even smaller than I thought it would be (very cute), with a long, heavy industrial cord. The dryer itself is also heavier than it's small size would …Read more

Mar/03/2011

I have long (almost to my waist), thick (very, very thick), slightly wavy hair that tends toward dry. I don't blow dry, and have only colored it a few times in my life (not recently), so I thought I'd give this shampoo and conditioner a whirl. I LOVED the smell. I HATED what it did to my hair. After the second use, my hair was a dry and matted mess. I couldn't get a detangling …Read more

I haven't had the problems with the pump that others have mentioned, but I can see how that's very possible with this packaging.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this product; I prefer to PC hydralight, which I was using previously. This sinks in better, and in addition to moisturizing, has dramatically evened out the texture of my skin. I don't think I need any other …
