It dries my hair out.
So much for moist.. it's really drying. I got a great deal on this huge bottle but now I know why- it's not a great product! I really only use it now when my hair hasn't been washed for a few days and has a lot of other products in in. It works pretty well for taking out the residue left by dimethicone based stuff but beyond that it just sits in my shower.
It's expensive but it's nice to have.
My showers wouldn't be complete without this Neutrogena oil. I also use the product with the black cap that Daniela M mentioned below but I'm pretty sure the oil is the same. It's great to use at the end of a shower with one of those plastic loofa things (I'm too oily afterwards unless I use the loofa with it). I do a quick final rinse and pat dry... PS, your towel will be nice and oily now too so plan on washing it after! It really makes my skin feel super smooth.
Too sickly sweet for me.
Perfume is one of those super personal things (and they smell a little bit different on everyone) so maybe it's just ME that this scent doesn't work for. But to be honest, a good friend of mine wears it, and I don't care for it on her either : / It's just too sweet for my taste but that might really appeal to someone else!
Conditions but left a residue behind.
I tried this after rediscovering it in one of my many "product bins." It did a good job of conditioning my hair, and while I liked the smooth texture it provided right after I blowdried, I noticed that my hair felt pretty filmy the next day. It's not terribly expensive but I'm not sure I'd purchase this again.
Not for me but the bottle is fantastic!
So perfume is definitely one of those things that is very personal. What smells great to one person just might not do it for another. I was lured in by the $12 pricetage of the mini Flora and decided it was definitely worth trying. What can I say... I'm a sucker for packaging. The teeny little bottle with it's teeny little bow totally made me want it. The perfume is nice but a bit "Grandma" for me, if ya know what I mean. I forced a few coworkers to smell my arm and they agreed that it smelled "mature" for sure. But who knows, maybe YOU'LL love it?
What's not to love?
It's a fab, floral-y (but subtly citrus) scent and has a GIANT CAT HEAD on it! Thanks to my FF Kristina H., I can acually call this wonder-product mine! She definitely wins at sharing. I love it (and her- just don't tell her, we don't gush in person so much). I take it everywhere (the perfume, not Kristina) and have had oodles of girls ask me what I'm wearing because they love it too. It's definitely worth the investment, you know, in case you don't have a totally awesome FF that hooks you up with Hello Kitty Rollerball perfumes.
I've tried both varieties of strips for whitening and these are definitely more convenient. They really seal onto your teeth and make it a lot less of a hassle. The other strips slip and slide everywhere and you can't really talk normally.
One day I accidentally left them on for more than half an hour and noticed my teeth were supppper sensitive for the next two days. Guess the whitening agent is pretty powerful stuff!
I'm glad I used these. I saw some pictures of my smile after I was done with the strips and was really shocked at how dingy my teeth appeared in older photos!
My cheap n lovely friend, Conair 3/4"...
These aren't expensive curling irons. That said, my Conair has yet to really let me down. I've had it for years and it hasn't crapped out yet. It curls, afterall- and like, that's kind of its only job- so I'm happy enough.
The heat dial is kind of a joke though because I always have it on the hottest setting possible (even with my bleach-blonde dew over here) and I still have to hold it for what feels like FOREVER to get a curl. But I get one. So yeah.
Took Sephora off my arm...
Literally. After Kristina H. and I had another crazy "touch everything in sight" session at Sephora we needed to clean up a bit. Thankfully, we were right over by Josie's wipes and gave them a go.
FAAAAbulous! Numero uno, the scent is amazing. Dos, they're all natural. Three, (the Spanish thing just wasn't cute anymore) they actually DO take product off. I had quite the array on my hands and arms too.
Granted, none of it was waterproof, but some of it was considered longwear and it came off. And the best part? The wipe just kept going and going and going. I used it until it was completely saturated with product and it still had removing power!
Pricey but worth it if you've got the bucks and like the idea of being eco-conscious (and fancy).
