I was looking for a whitening toothpaste, so I purchased the Crest 3D Whitening Therapy Enamel Care. I really liked the idea of whitening at the same time as caring for your enamel. I must have been allergic to one of the ingredients in this toothpaste, which made this unusable for me. :( I really wanted to love this toothpaste but unfortunately, I'm unable to really use this one. I liked the mint flavor of this toothpaste and how it wasn't super strong. It just wasn't very gentle in my opinion. I never had sensitivities before, so I am not sure what caused the reaction. I am sure this is a great toothpaste for others, but it was just not the right product for me personally.
The Aveeno 60 Second in Shower facial is a nice cleansing product. I do have sensitive skin/mild eczema and am careful about skin care. Luckily, I've had no problem or negative reactions to this at all. It doesn't cause me any irritation. :) It cleanses my skin and face really well, removes dirt, and make-up. It's very gentle and does have a like exfoliation, which is nice. I can't use many exfoliates because they are usually too irritating for my skin. This is very slight and doesn't bother me at all. While it's a really nice cleanser, I can't say that I noticed any real differences in my skin. It does help to keep skin feeling healthy in general and doesn't dry out my skin. It's a nice product and cleanser, but not necessarily anything different or super effective.
I love this Chapstick Duo Lip Balm. :) Both flavors, the strawberry kiwi and watermelon smell amazing. I like that it comes with two different flavors so you can have a choice. The packaging is perfect when trying to find a chapstick in your purse! It is also very hydrating on your lips and helps keeps them feeling healthy and smooth. They are not drying at all. Would definitely recommend these and purchase again in the future. :)
I am very picky about mascaras so I am always skeptical trying a new one - but I can say that I liked this one.
This mascara gives me the length and volume that I was hoping for. I only needed about two coats to get that volume too, unlike other mascaras I've had when you need many coats to get that type of volume. The only downside of this mascara is that it does dry a bit quickly, so you can't really wait too long in between coats or it will dry. It also doesn't last as long as I wanted and did fade off towards the end of the day. But I would still purchase this again. This mascara did not really flake or smudge while applying or throughout the day. It also did not really clump at all when applying, even with multiple coats. I will say that it is a little on the pricey side, but it gives really nice volume so I think it is worth it. :)
I have tried two of the Nyx Blush sticks in the shades Magnolia and Pink Lotus.
I can say that I love them!! Both colors I've tried are beautiful so far and would definitely purchase more to try in the future. What I love about these are how pigmented they are. These are blush sticks and I was happy at how creamy the texture of them are. You do have to put some work into blending these in because they are not necessarily easily blendable. However, the color lasts all day so it is worth it! I personally love these blush ticks and would highly recommend them.
The Pacifica Coconut Water Facial Cleansing Wipes work really well for me!
Since I have very sensitive skin , I am always careful on what skin products I pick. Luckily, these do not irritate me at all. They are very gentle and light. The best part of these cleansing wipes is the coconut smell - it is amazing! They do remove my make-up fairly well, but do have to work a bit harder to remove some eye make-up. Still, they are definitely more natural. I would definitely purchase these to use again in the future. :)
I tried a sample of this Death Valley Dry Shampoo.
While it does work, I don't think it is as effective as other dry shampoos I have used. I find that for my hair you need to use a very good amount for it to work how I'd like. I do have hair on the thicker side, so I am not sure if this was maybe not just the best choice for my hair type. I also can say that I wasn't a huge fan of the smell. Overall, this dry shampoo is just okay to me. I didn't love the way it made my hair feel after using either. I'm glad I go to try the sample, but I wouldn't purchase this on my own personally.

I love all of the shades of pink and red that come with the palette. They can be used to create so many different looks - a very nice range and variety of colors. I was pretty impressed by the pigment of these colors! Luckily I didn't find any of them drying at all personally. They are not necessarily hydrating, but they did not dry out my lips throughout the day. The colors do have a finish more on the glossy side, they are not really matte colors. While I do love the colors, I didn't find they lasted as long as I hoped for. I wish they were a lot more long-lasting. Since this is a palette, it's not as easy to carry around in your purse as opposed to a lipstick. But I still love this palette and would definitely recommend it because of the nice variety of shades. :)
I got this Jersey Shore lip balm in my ipsy bag some time ago and can say that I really love it!
The Vanilla and Coconut Cream scent is amazing - one of my favorite parts of this product. Great scent - very summery!! The formula on this lip balm feels really natural - perfect to wear under your lip color throughout the day to keep your lips feeling healthy. It is smooth and applies nicely. It's super moisturizing and didn't cause any skin irritation at all. It definitely keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day and prevents them from getting too chapped. I can say I would highly recommend this to others and re purchase from this brand in the future. :)
I love the idea of this highlighter and was excited to try it, but I was not really impressed.
The Maybelline Rainbow Highlighter is not something I could recommend to others. Maybelline has many good products I purchase, but this is definitely not one of them in my opinion. I don't really like to leave negative reviews, but this was not my favorite product. I knew this would be a difficult look to pull off since it is a rainbow highlighter, but this pigment was not what I was hoping for. The blue shade has a much stronger pigment than any of the colors in the highlighter, so it ends up looking strange trying to blend the other colors in. It makes it difficult to achieve a look with this one. While the blue is shimmery and pretty, it really overpowers the other shades. Of I was not expecting this to perfect, but I really didn't love this at all. Maybe it would be good for an eye shadow, but I don't think I can use this again as a highlighter. It's not something I would personally re-purchase. I am sure others do like this product, but I cannot recommend it myself.
