LOREAL MAGIC SKIN BEAUTIFIER BB CREAM





I was amazed at how much it covered and how nice the color blended into my skin. I have the light color. I even got compliments from my family and friends - they said my skin looked "airbrushed"!  and I absolutely loved the way it looked. I have a few freckles (that I love) and they weren't covered, but my skin tone was evened and I was glowing- but not in an artificial way. It looked like I just had really great skin an the most important Stays fresh and matches skin tones great if applied correctly. looks very natural not cakey at all. I couldn't be happier.  This is At 1/5 the price of the brand I was using before . I'm really impressed by the quality and performance, and I feel like I'm saving a lot of money. It is easy to use and makes my skin brighten and glow a bit even though it is matte. It is kind to my lines and if anything diminishes the look of them.



HOW I USE IT: 
I mix a tiny pea size of this BB cream on the back of my hand with a same size blob of my spf moisture cream and blend them together and then dot it all over my face, neck, and chest. Not greasy and feels light. I Will re purchase for sure.



Blends perfect with my skin tone



Pros:
Inexpensive.
Lightweight.
Long-wearing.
Natural-looking.
Not strongly-scented.
Good for combination skin.
Needs minimal other products to look good.
Non-greasy.
Easy to apply.
Didn't sting my eyes.
looked the same at the end of the day. 
Lite coverage.
Nice packaging.
Very minimal touch ups.
Didn't slip around my face (most liquid makeup does).

Cons:

I wish their was some sort of skin protection in here.

NATURE'S GATE RICE BRAN MOISTURIZER





Absolutely lovely moisturizer, I use it everyday. This is for Normal to Dry/ Skin. This is just a brilliant, natural moisturizer. I have combination, slightly dry skin. This absorbs beautifully, leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and comfortable. I have a bit of thing about using as natural as possible moisturizer, which is a bit weird because I have plenty of makeup that is by no means natural. But I just feel like the moisturizer is the most important part of my face care routine, it is the thing that stays on my skin most of the time and sits between my skin and makeup, keeping my foundation from sliding around but also contributing some hydration to those areas that need it.

Packaging?
The packaging is pretty, it doesn't come in some very fancy packaging but I like it.

Smell?
Fragance free.


Price?
I got this for about $14.99 for 4 oz.  price is good, not overly expensive for a natural moisturizer that really works.

Overall?
This product works great for my face and hands, parabens, petrolatum and cruelty  free.

Herbal Essences Shine Collection Shampoo sulfate free and Conditioner Silicone free




I bought this shampoo a few weeks ago and didn't expect much. I was pleased to see it was sulfate free shampoo and conditioner silicone free as I have chemically treated hair but beyond that assumed it would just be a typical shampoo.
I couldn't have been more wrong. I have noticeably softer, smoother, minimum  frizz hair. It works great in conjunction with a flat iron and gives me a fresh from the stylist look. I was so impressed because I really can see the difference now on my hair and I can really feel this product do something for my hair. I have fairly fine hair that is mostly straight, with a few stubborn waves and curls. This helped me smooth out my trouble spots but doesn't make my fine hair look too thin or flat. This herbal essences line smell great  and have a very good price I bought both shampoo and conditioner on walmart for only $10.


BENEFITS OF SULFATE AND SILICONE FREE HAIR PRODUCTS

1) you eliminate sulfate and silicone allergies.
2) Your hair remains healthy instead of being stripped.
3) you keep the oils that make look your hair healthy and shiny.
4) your hair will grow faster and stronger.
5) Keeping breakage to minimum.
6) The biggest benefit is that you may actually gain some hair volume because of the health of you scalp and hair follicles will improve without the irritation of sulfate or silicone on your shampoo or conditioner . So if you have a sensitive scalp, chronically dry or brittle hair, color treatments or perms, these are some of the reasons why sulfate and silicone free products are better for your hair.



NOTE: I bought this product with my own money.

Lancome Definicils Mascara




I got this mascara as a free sample from Lancome when you spend over a certain amount. After having used a sample of this I bought the full-size product and I really like it. This mascara is a really good one. An absolute staple for anyone that wants a classic look. This mascara lasts and lasts, and looks great without being clumpy or tacky. I’m sure, just like hair, the texture of eyelashes varies from person to person and I believe that accounts for the many different results from this mascara. My lashes are nearly invisible without mascara and are very light and fine. But with this mascara, I have discovered lashes I didn’t even know I had! Even though it is not meant to be volumizing, it gives me that effect because of the beautiful definition so you can see each and every one of my lashes. It also lengthens very well so now I look like I have tons of fluffy, long lashes!


Pros:1. It is incredibly easy to apply. It distributes from the base to the tip of my lashes with barely any effort on my part.2. It is wet enough for great color transfer, but not so wet as to make a mess and smudge. 
3. I didn’t find it to be clumpy at all. I always use a metal eyelash comb just to make sure my lashes come out as perfect as possible, but I think this is the only mascara I have tried that I could have gotten away without it.4. The lengthening is superb! I really never knew how much lengthening a mascara could do until I tried this.5. It preserved my curl all day long. it didn’t flake or smudge.6. I felt that it was weightless and I had to check to see if my mascara was still on (and it was)!7. I chose the black/noir and the color is incredible.8. It is very easy to remove, comes right off with my Olay Foaming Face Wash For Sensitive Skin. 9. The product is more important to me than the packaging, but I must comment that this tube is very elegant.

Cons:1. The price, it is expensive (but so worth it)! I wouldn’t really want to, but I would spend more if I had to for the results I have gotten.I do believe application is the key to success with any mascara. What I do with this one (and have tried with others to no avail) is to apply 2 or 3 coats over the base while combing through the lashes as I go along. Then I let it dry and apply one very light coat (mainly to the tips) and don’t comb it. The end result is spectacular!

Clinique Butter Shine Pink a-boo Review




This is a very pretty pink color with subtle gold shimmer. It's not super sheer so it shows up well on fairly pigmented lips. It's a great shade for spring and summer; it looks young and fresh. If you look great in pinks, women of all ages would probably like this shade. Love the moisturizing formula of the Butter Shines. If you're looking for something in between a gloss and a lipstick in a true, medium-toned pink, you might like Pink-a-boo Butter Shine .



Pros: The color is beautiful. This is such a pretty, perfect, neutral shade. It's pinky, but not PINK. It's mauvey, but not MAUVE. it's just a nice rosy, pink but kind of warm color. 
It looks great with my coloring. I have medium/dark brown hair, fair skin with slight yellow undertones. It's not too bright, dark or pale.It goes on sooo smoothly, the butter in the name says it all.It feels nice. Not sticky, gloppy, or dry.It's got a nice shine to it, but not TOO much shine.It doesn't dry my lips out.It doesn't have a funky smell or taste.

Cons:It is almost too soft, sometimes little chunks end up staying on my lips. And it melts much more easily than any other lipstick I have tried.
It doesn't stay on very long. I have to reapply it very often. Which leads to.A tube doesn't last very long.
I think it lasted at most 2 hours on my lips.



I bought this for $15.00

Olay Professional ProX Anti-Aging Age Repair Lotion With Sunscreen SPF 30 Review





This is a very moisturizing skin age repair lotion with a high SPF 30 . This is for morning use. that will probably do a good job for every one . with no flaking or falling into wrinklesthis product has impressed me! I was looking for something to add moisture and spf. I used other expensive products and I have to say, Olay works great and for 1/4 the price. My face has definitely been a lost softer and smoother. It goes on easily and my make up goes on smoothly over top. it absorbs fast & leaves no residue. I could see a difference in my skin's texture within the fourth day. Make's my foundation look perfect!. This is, overall, my favorite product. The packaging is easy to use and never clogs. The rich lotion absorbs nicely, yet keeps my extra dry skin supple and comfortable. Also the spf 30 protects very well. I never burn with this lotion. The best part is the plump moisture that seems to last all day.

This is my third week using this lotion and this is what I have observed:

1) My skin is moisturized and glows. these products are not oily at all. I also like the fact that the product seems to absorb rather than SIT on the surface of my skin.


2) Always comfortable and never makes my face red or irritated (and NO breakouts). 


3) Firming and smoothing effect to face, neck and hands. My skin looks refreshed, healthier, brighter, smoother and my fine lines barely noticiable.

4) My skin is more even toned and pores appear smaller- I say "appear" because your pores can't shrink and don't buy anything that says it will SHRINK pores. Also, my skin has better clarity and it's more even toned.


Indications Can be used for the following skin conditions: Sunscreen
