May/28/2011

I picked this up to compliment the shampoo after having to swap out my products after having some sort an allergic reaction. The ingredients looked to be pretty moisturizing so I was pretty hopeful about this product. This is not an intensive conditioner, but it does a great job of smoothing and detangling on a daily basis. It rinses out nicely, leaves my hair soft, and doesn't build up. …Read more

Shampoo - Finesse - Clean + Simple Hypoallergenic For Dry Color Treated Hair

May/28/2011

I picked this up because a few months ago I inexplicably broke out in hives and rash and thought it'd be best to switch out all my products to hypoallergenic items. At first I was afraid it'd dry out my heavily highlighted hair when I saw it was a clear shampoo, but this stuff is great! It does a great job of clearing the product and effects of hard water from my hair and it …Read more

Shampoo - Pureology - Super Smooth Shampoo

Stellar product at a jaw dropping price. Why consider buying a bottle of shampoo that costs nearly $30? It works. A dime sized dollop emulsifed in palms will clean my medium-thick, heavily highlighted hair thoroughly, rinses clean, and leaves a non-obtrusive and pleasant floral scent on strands. This product is gentle but effective and helps keep my highlights vibrant and hair soft in spite …Read more

This rinses cleaner than anything other shampoo I've ever used!

What I love about this shampoo is that it's especially great when I'm in a hurry. I have the 1 Liter bottle with pump; One pump of shampoo rubbed between the hands (it's thick but not gooey) and then rubbed into the scalp gets my 2" below the shoulders hair thoroughly (not squeaky) clean quickly …

I'm a NC20/25 and have been wearing this in the Tone shade all summer. The staying power is good and it blends really well. I've worn this foundation with and without an oil control lotion under it and have had consistently good results. I still need some extra concealer on top of blemishes and under the eyes, but notice I use less concealer than I did with other foundations. My …Read more

Sunscreen - Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Sunscreen with Hemp Seed Oil Chemical Free

Jul/25/2010

I tried the Burt's Bees Chemical Sunscreen with hemp seed oil this afternoon prior to embarking on a 70 mile convertible ride. This sunscreen is the consistency of cake frosting and is difficult to rub into the skin. About 30 minutes after application, I observed white patches appearing on my skin as it dried. As the product dried more, white granules began to slough off my arms. The …Read more

Why? Why? Why do I have to grind the applicator against the shadow and then grind the color into my skin to get it to appear. And for a product bearing the Elizabeth Arden name no less.

FAIL.

I can affect the color and texture of this through application method. Whenever possible I'll use a brush and application technique similar to BE (swirl, tap, buff) and find that the application is a bit more matte. I can layer it on thicker to darken the color but this isn't really necessary now we're at the time of the year where I see the sun about once a week. I go over …Read more

Dry Shampoo - TIGI - Dirty Secret Rockaholic Dry Shampoo

Sops up oil nicely and makes my hair bigger in the process. The odor isn't overwhelming and it 'brushes out' nicely - no powdered wig look here. Minus a point for package quality for the lid's inability to withstand a 3.5 foot fall onto a tile floor without shattering into multiple pieces.

Meets and exceeds expectations for a drugstore lipstick. Extra props for BOGOs allowing to try multiple colors. Color is opaque enough that it's true to the stick on the lips. Staying power is decent and I don't recall anything about the taste or smell being overly-funky. It falls exactly middle of the road for level of moisture. I consider this the bargain version of MAC's …Read more
