Styling Products - Matrix - Vavoom Height Of Glam Volumizing Mousse

I have a lot of heavy hair, with fine individual strands. I need volume. I enjoyed the effect of this product, didn't make my hair oily or crunchy or leave residue, but unfortunately it was really drying and makes my hair really staticy. I have tried to combat this every which way, but even using spray oil in combination leaves my hair with static.

Shampoo - Clear Scalp & Hair - Shampoo

Jul/10/2012

I bought the Men's Dry Scalp 2 in1 version for my husband who has suffered with dandruff for years despite trying different shampoos designed for dandruff. He doesn't really like to talk about it, so I just forced him into it when he was running low on his current shampoo. OH MY GOSH. If you have dandruff, run out and buy this now. I pray they never discontinue it. I cut his hair …Read more

Shampoo - Alba Botanica - Natural Hawaiian Drink It Up Coconut Milk Shampoo

This shampoo is a god send. I have scalp psoriasis and have been hunting for a good shampoo for close to ten years. Some things have worked better than others, not really related to sulfates vs sulfate free, but even the best (Paul Mitchell Lavender and Tea Tree) was never what I was hoping for -- I'd still be itchy and flaky and some were expensive. About a year ago I read how beneficial …Read more

Top/Base Coats - REVLON - Quick Dry Top Coat

Everything about this is just "OK." I am a former Seche Vite believer, but once I got halfway through the bottle (like everyone else) I found out it was worthless because of how gummy it got ASIDE from the fact that its near impossible to reach the bottom of the bottle. I think its ridiculous that I can't use half of a product especially when that wasn't all that cheap . …Read more

Feb/27/2012

I got so angry with the end of this product, I finally have to write a review. I am still using what's left of the old packaging, so I can't comment on the new one (butI hear it's eliminated the waste issue). Although I did cut the bottle to get the extra out, storing it in 2 airtight mineral jars, I've found that I can't go through it fast enough to keep it from drying …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Alpha Skin Care - Revitalizing Body Lotion with 12% Glycolic AHA

Feb/24/2012

I wanted to add a new review for the improved version of this lotion. I've been looking for a good AHA body lotion due to icky texture on my arms, and dry elbows no matter what kind of torturous process I put them through to soften them up (I've been in pain many-a-time from taking a pumice stone to them with only one-day of softness to show). I was hesitant b/c the reviews below …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Jun/22/2011

I don't know why it took me so long to write this review, but I have a lot of insight to offer, so please be patient.

I began using this cleanser a couple years ago in preparation for my wedding. I've had consistently sensitive, oily skin. When I was using this, I loved my skin, but attributed the greatness to other things. I ran out and never repurchased because I felt …

Pressed Powders - Urban Decay - De-Slick Mattifying Powder

Sep/29/2010

I have fairly oily skin, so I've tried many of the mattifying products out there and found none to live up to their promises (with, perhaps, Mac Blot being an exception). I have had success with Lancome Primer for oil control, but don't like to use it every day because it's fairly expensive, so I save it for days I know will be 10+ hours for me.

I opened my Mac Blot a …

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Blot Powder Pressed

Jun/15/2010

I know there are like 15385 reviews on this already but I felt it was necessary to add my two cents. I have relatively oily skin so a touch up during the day for oil absorption is absolutely necessary for me. I don't always like messing with blot papers so I like to have another option around to give me more of an airbrushed look. Overall I would give this product a …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Sexy Hair - Volumizing Dry Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2010

Hands down best dry shampoo on the market. It blows away all the competitors I've tried and managed to fix the problems other dry shampoos have. #1 It is a spray thus so much easier to use than the loose powder cousins (I'm looking at you Oscar Blandi). With the loose powder squeeze bottles, I can never get all the oil out. I either get white streaks in my hair or it all …Read more
