Review for Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Foam Conditioner - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
This made my hair a lot softer with every use. I have fine hair so regular cream conditioners always makes my roots weighed down and get oilier. I prefer using the foam because it gives my hair lift + volume without oily build up. I too off on star though because this product lasts me about 1 1/2 months of use because I have medium-long thick amount of hair to take care of. I wished it was cheaper in cost than it is now.

Review for Swisspers 100% Cotton Makeup Removal Wipes - 4 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I usually use fragrance free makeup removing wipes because it’s more gentle on my skin and on my eyes so I was excited to try out these wipes from Swisspers. I used this brand’s cotton pads before and didn’t know they also made makeup removing wipes until I got a sample in my Spark Voxbox. Compared to the Simple makeup wipes that I regularly use, I don’t think these do as good of a job to get off stubborn makeup - eye makeup, red lipstick. I do feel a cooling sensation though when I use it to wipe my face and it does collect most of my tinted sunblock but it does feel a bit rough as I am dragging it across my skin even though the cloth feels soft when I am holding it in my hand. The 100% cotton aspect means it won’t tear apart when you are using it which is true as I haven’t had one rip a part on me like other brands I tried but texture wise it feels rough on my face. The scent is more chemical smelling too so I don’t really like it. I much prefer my Simple brand wipes because they work on stubborn makeup and has a nicer scent and doesn’t feel like it’s harsh on my skin. Maybe if it smelled differently or was softer on the face I would like it more. If you are using non-waterproof makeup this is enough to get it off but if it’s waterproof I would choose a different product. Simple® Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes
Review for Live Clean® Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Lotion - 4 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I am not a lover of coconut scents but this one will be an exception! It’s sweet scent is more on the baked goods side like coconut angel food cake and less like the usual coconut scents in other brands of body lotion. I really enjoyed using this on my skin because it was non-sticky and the pump bottle makes it easy to apply but I do wish the bottle was more steady so it won’t up over easily. I love using this lotion after cleansing with my Philosophy Cinnamon Buns shower cream because the fragrances pair well together. My skin looked hydrated and not super shiny (which happens with other brands of coconut lotions) and left a light scent that doesn’t linger for a long time so I didn’t get a headache from the fragrance. The more I used it, the more soft my skin became. I like that it’s free of the usual suspects that can cause cancer or clog skin pores to create breakouts: paraben, silicone, phthalate, petrolatum, mineral oil. I love that it’s hypoallergenic and uses certified organic ingredients so it great for people with sensitive skin like me. It’s a pro that this brands never tests on animals. For a smooth skin experience, during a hot shower, I first scrub with Shea Moistures Bamboo Charcoal Body Scrub, shave my legs with the Pure Silk Contour 6 razor, then cleanse with the Philosophy Cinnamon Roll and finally apply the Live Clean Coconut Milk Lotion to rehydrate my skin afterwards.

Review for Pure Silk Contour 6 Razor - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
I got to try the Pure Silk Contour 6 razor in the Spark Voxbox and I am glad I did because I doubt I would have found it on my own when buying razors for myself. The best thing about this razor is that you can catch all the hair in one swipe because of the unique design of the flex head and the large head shape. I absolutely cannot believe I found a razor that will rinse away easily the shaving cream and hair that gets caught between the blades and I don’t have to bang it against the bath to get it out — this is a constant issue I find with other brand of razors. The reason it is easy to clean is because the flex head allows it to open a larger gap to release the things trapped between the blades. This feature alone makes it stand out and its going to be my new go to razor. The only bad thing about the kit which I deducted one star is that it has a wall mount that doesn’t stick to the tile wall of my shower. I tried so many times and it always came crashing down after 30 seconds. One of the pink strips from my razor actually broke off from the razor itself the last time I mounted it and luckily I was able to glue it back onto the razor because pushing it in place like a puzzle piece wasn’t working. :( Other than that, I highly recommend you try out this razor but I would not use the wall mount.

Review for Country Crock® With Sunflower Oil - 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Foodie Expert Level 1
I haven’t used Country Crock for a long time cause I didn’t like the taste of the original and I was put off by the artificial looking yellow color but the new one with Sunflower Oil has a much closer taste to real butter and it’s more ivory colored in the tub. I like that they kept it to be an easy to spread consistency so mixing it into my pizza dough wasn’t difficult. After putting all the toppings on my pepperoni pizza, I put some garlic butter along the crust so it comes out a nice golden brown color. My end result is a perfect crust (but too bad my pizza came out well done more than what i would have wanted). Even though this happened, The Country Crock Sunflower Oil butter didn’t burn easily or alter the butter taste even though I was baking at a high temperature (375 to 400 F). I have tried I on toast and the taste is creamy and light. If you want an alternative to natural butter, I would choose this one because it’s closer in taste and is easy to spread. No matter eating it cold or cooking with it, the taste is delicious.

Review for Hair Food Apricot Conditioner - 8 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I liked the scent on the conditioner more than on the shampoo counterpart. It’s more floral than fruity but both have a sweetness to them. I liked that this was mineral oil and silicone free so I don’t have to worry about it breaking out my skin or giving me flat hair the more I used it but I don’t think this product worked with my fine hair. The conditioner was not too greasy and thick so it washed off easily and I didn’t feel like it got stuck to my body like some conditioners do. I don’t think it made me breakout more and it didn’t irritate my scalp. I used this for about a month so I could write a detailed review. The first 2 weeks were great, my hair looked amazing and it was sleek, shiny, and soft. I was impressed. However, by week 3 and 4 it made my hair super frizzy and the ends of my hair wasn’t curving the way it naturally would to frame my face. Instead it was going all over the place. I looked like I just rolled out of bed. Only solution would be to blow dry it every time to look like it did in weeks 1-2 which actually would dry it out and give heat damage so that’s not an option I want to do. I used this product everyday because my hair gets super greasy if I don’t but I guess maybe this product isn’t meant for that. The longer I used it, the worse it would get. If your hair routine is like mine then I wouldn’t recommend this product. Attached pic is when blow dried.

Review for Clearasil® Ultra 5-in-1 Exfoliating Acne Medication Wash - 1 year, 5 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
I was excited to see this "all in one" cleanser at my Target and had high hopes for it because I did want something that could be a cleanser, makeup remover, mask, and exfoliator in one. Sadly, from actually using this I don't think it was the right product for me. This product has a very chemical smell to it so if you are picky about scents this might be a con like it was for me. It left my skin feeling clean after the wash but hours later my skin was oilier than normal, which I didn't expect. I was shiny all over and I was worried it would cause more breakouts instead of healing them or preventing them like it promises. I did like the abrasiveness to the exfoliator because it's granules were small and gentler than other drugstore brands and I did make my skin feel smoother but because of the other things that happened to my skin I don't think it works for me. My skin type is combination and is prone to acne.

Review for IT Cosmetics® Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ - 1 year, 6 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 4
After seeing the promotional videos of how great this product is at covering blemishes and the many flourishing reviews, I couldn't wait to try this product. I was looking for something with good coverage to cover blemishes and this CC cream sadly won't cover acne scars or dark brown spots. Redness is a yes like in the demonstration videos from IT Cosmetics but anything other than that it doesn't conceal. I wish it was more moisturizing too because it's a CC cream but without applying moisturizer first, it will accentuate the dry spots on my face. If you have dry skin, this won't be moisturizing at all and will make your skin look worse. I like that it doesn't have fragrance because that usually irritates my skin when it is in skincare. When I do have this product on, I look more rested and glowing. I didn't give high marks on this though because the tinted coverage will fade by the end of the day even though I still protection from the sun since it is high SPF 50. :( Wished it was able to look good the whole day so I wouldn't have to find an alternative to meet my needs.
