Shampoo - John Frieda - Root Awakening Strength Restoring Shampoo

Jun/28/2009

Let me preface this by saying that I just moved to very humid South Florida, where it's summertime. This shampoo is great and doesn't make my hair frizzy or oily. It isn't the World's Greatest Shampoo by any means, but instead of talking about what it does, I'm gonna talk about what it doesn't do, to my hair: my hair doesn't frizz, feel oily, or fall flat. This …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - thrrrob [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/29/2009

I am NW15 and Georgia doesn't show on me at all, but I LOVE Thrrrob! I think it's perfect for fair-skinned ladies. While I own a lot of makeup, I don't usually WEAR a lot unless I'm going out. For work I've just been using concealer, Studio Fix, eyebrow pencil and mascara, but something seemed amiss. Add Thrrrob and you have a PERFECT natural look. It's really the …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Powerhouse Oscillation

Nov/09/2008

I find it a bit daunting that 2 of the 5-star reviews on this product are from Lancome sellers themselves. This isn't meant to really be an insult, because I work in sales as well and know the importance of realizing the joy of a new product. However, for someone who isn't completely competent in makeup application, this mascara isn't great. Far from it. I used Defencils and was …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Plumage

Dec/04/2007

I just applied Plumage for the first time and while it's never been my style to rave about any product that I haven't worn for at least a few occassions, I just love this that much. I am very pale with dark hair and tend to choose eyeshadows that are darker lately to give a high contrast, but was pleased that this doesn't start off as too dark and you can build upon it. It is …Read more

Shampoo - Suave - Tropical Coconut Shampoo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2005

This is, by far, the best low-end shampoo for dry/damaged hair that I've ever tried. The only drawback is that after a few weeks of use, my hair starts to look a little greasy, so I have to then switch to a clarifying shampoo. It's tough to make this last more than 24 hours without starting to look greasy, which is a setback for people like me who straighten their hair. But it's …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - St. Ives - Whipped Silk Body Moisturizer ] [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2005

This is a great lotion, I use it in "Pure White Silk" and I've found my lotion holy grail. It smells great, MUCH less plastic-scented than St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Lotion (which was nice but the driest part of me is my hands and whenever I'd wash my hands it would come off in white, greasy puddles in the sink - gross - and hence the 24 hour moisture part not being of any …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - St. Ives - 24-Hour Moisture Lotion

Jan/17/2005

This smells pretty gross, and I do find that I need to reapply pretty often. I'm sensitive to smell and just can't get over that - I feel like I've just rubbed myself down with chlorine. I may try St. Ives Whipped Silk next time, but this is definite non-repurchase.

Styling Products - Suave - Frizz Control Gel

5.0

Jan/17/2005

This is a great gel. The smell is lovely, it doesn't feel crunchy, and it makes my hair frizz-free and soft. After reading the negative reviews on Suave's Aloe Vera Shampoo I was a little unsure about picking up the gel, but it's leaps and bounds over any gel I've tried, including expensive brands. I love this!!

Shampoo - Suave - AromaBenefits Cucumber & Melon Refreshing Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2005

I used this while visiting my boyfriend's apartment (he has very strange tastes in shampoo - see my Tea Tree reviews!) and I didn't like it at all. I have very oily hair, but since I dry and straighten every day I've been looking for a shampoo that both combats the oil and lets me go without washing it every day, to protect against damage - well this certainly dried my hair out …Read more

Fragrances - Giorgio Armani - Mania (re-release 2004; beige cap, not black)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2004

Let me begin by saying I'm not a big perfume person, and it takes a lot for me to both like a scent and see it as "me." Dior's J'Adore was my staple since it came out but I was getting a little bored with it and I'd rather just use a body spray or something less overpowering. But Armani Mania is the perfume for girls who hate overpowering perfume, is a dark, rich …Read more
