Skip this if you have sensitive skin or (potentially) sulfa allergies. First time I tried it, I turned bright read and my face started burning and itching. I couldn't wash it off fast enough.

Lotions/ Creams - Kiehl's - Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion

Nov/20/2014

I do like the scent of the product (citrusy, lemony almost). I really like how thick and rich it is. And it is very moisturizing. (I might repurchase as a treat from time to time on this basis alone--even though it is a bit too expensive to purchase regularly.) I used it to lotion up my hands and arms before bed and it really made a difference to my dry skin.

Unfortunately, like many …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sympathy for the Skin Body Lotion

Pros: The best thing about this lotion is its scent. It has a beautiful, warm, subtle scent, a mixture of vanilla and sandalwood. It also has a lovely texture and absorbs quickly.

Cons: The packaging is not great--a big tub of lotion (definitely not a cream of a body butter) is not ideal--and it's a bit too expensive for lotion, even good lotion.

I received this as a …

Jun/29/2012

I bought this product at my beloved local hippie-dippy organic co-op for about $10 (about twice what I usually pay for mousse), thinking that I would try more "natural" products on my hair. I don't use it for volume (nothing but nothing gives volume to my pin-straight, very fine, extremely long hair) but to control fly-aways when I pull my hair into a bun or ponytail. For that …Read more

Hair Treatments - Redken - All Soft HEAVY CREAM Super Treatment

Nov/28/2011

My hair is very long, thin-medium thickness, and stick straight. Because I live in a very dry climate, I don't use shampoo everyday, but I do condition every day. I had been using Pantene and Suave's Paul Mitchell knock-off in the shower followed by John Masters detangling conditioner as a leave-in, but I wanted to try something better. I found the Redken All Soft line at Target. The …Read more

Nov/25/2011

I have dry skin with patches of redness and usually some small blemishes but with little/no dark undereye circles. That said, I think this is a really, really good concealer. I use the medium (yellow-toned shade) and the greenish-tinted shade and only very rarely the powder (though I don't wear powder usually) to set it. I use a brush to apply (a small concealing brush from e.l.f. for …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Powder Duo

This is absolutely HG for me, a top of the line product that does exactly what it's supposed to and looks great doing it. The colors are spot on (not too dark, absolutely no red tinge like some brown brow powders have). They go on easily and last all day. Yes, it's pricey, but it lasts forever. I would recommend this to everyone and I will definitely repurchase.

Lips - NIVEA - A Kiss of Milk and Honey

This is initially very moisturizing and I even like the (heavy, flowery, sweet) smell. But it wears off after about 20 minutes, leaving my lips dry and peeling (way more so than they were when I first put it on). It was cheap enough, though that I won't feel guilty throwing it out!
