I picked this up after getting SO frustrated with how quickly Seche Vite went from AWESOME to a thick, goopy mess. I've had it for 6 months or so now, and the bottle is *just* running out - and I do probably two manicures a week at least. Its STILL of a thin consistency, not AS thin as it was, but definitely easy to apply (just hard to reach the bottom of the bottle!). I don't like …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLINIQUE - Turnaround Body Smoothing Cream

Amazing. Made the rough skin on my thighs smooth overnight. I can exfoliate that area with different scrubs, just a shower pouf, whatever, and nothing works to smooth the skin. This is so easy and effective, and it doesn't irritate my ezcema in the least. HG!

The only problem is that the cap is hard to get open - but that's just more annoying than anything else.

I bought this due to the good reviews, but I just wasn't wowed. I found it cumbersome in the shower to use, and I while I felt moisturized afterward, I didn't feel a whole lot smoother. It had a nice smell and it felt good knowing you were using all of those essential oils on the skin, I'll grant it that. But in terms of effectiveness, I can't really testify to that. I was …Read more

One of the best reds I've ever encountered for my skin coloring (sort of like Halle Berry)!! I wear this to work often and never feel like my mouth is screaming for attention. I find red can be tricky with darker skin and fuller lips, but this is the perfect shade that compliments my skin tone beautifully. Good wear if I'm not eating/drinking, but it does transfer easily. I …Read more

Amazing. I've been using this product now for about 3-4 months and *might* be through half the bottle, and I use it almost every day! You really only need half a pump (I've got super curly hair that DEVOURS product but even for myself a full pump is too much). Aside from the longevity of this, it smells amazing and it works. I use this with Aveeno's leave-in treatment and my …Read more

Yummm! I love the smell of this balm. Plus, it makes my lips feel so soft, not sticky at all, and I love the look of my bare lips with just this product. I don't really have much else to say about it - it's excellent. I can't think of any drawbacks. I don't know if its the BEST balm ever in terms of moisturizing/treatment, but it doesn't do anything negative and in …Read more

Dec/22/2010

After doing a friend's makeup and using her Full'n'Soft mascara with ease on her eyes, I thought I'd pick one of these up to try it out. Can't say it's my favorite...it does what it claims - lashes are soft and feathery - but that is NOT what I wanted at all (so I guess it's my own fault!). I find that for some reason this mascara makes my lashes go every …Read more

Dec/13/2010

I am always keeping an eye out for skin lotions/creams that don't have petroleum/mineral oil in them, but it's a hard task! Additionally I have eczema so it has to be hydrating enough for my skin, especially this time of year. Last winter I used Curel's lotion in the old blue packaging and while it didn't irritate, it is chock full of skin smothering ingredients. Works …Read more

Dec/07/2010

Sorry, but I just can't get down with this product. I remembered using this before like, 10 years ago, and LOVING the smell - which I still do. However, I don't find this does much of anything in terms of exfoliation, at least not on the soles of my feet. I haven't used it in conjunction with a pumice stone, but to me that's sort of rating the product inaccurately - I …Read more

Conditioner - TRESemmé - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/07/2010

This is by far the best drugstore conditioner I have ever used! Possibly the best daily conditioner I've used overall, too. And on top of that, it's silicone-free, hypoallergenic, and dye-free. I just find that amazing considering that it truly works - my dry, uber curly hair feels amazing after I use it, and really hydrated, not just that false 'moisturized' feeling when …Read more
