Review for Aussie Instant Freeze Sculpting Gel - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Pros: Curly Girl approved, the hold is amazing, it doesn't build up on my hair, it holds even better after I refresh with water and diffuse again, it doesn't smell bad

Cons: If you use too much and reapply several days in a row without cleansing, you will see occasional flakes

I have been doing the CGM (curly girl method) since April 2018 and it has taken me until last week (February 3, 2019) to discover this product. I absolutely love it. A bunch of curlies I follow on Instagram rave about this product so I decided for $4 I could try it and see what happens. I should have started using this sooner! My hair used to not hold past one day so I was washing or co-washing every day. I tried refreshing but ended up with a gigantic stringy mat on my head. Two weeks ago I tried refreshing again, this time with misting my hair with water and a little bit of leave in, and my clumpies came back! This past week, ever since I got AIF (aussie instant freeze) I have been reapplying after misting my hair and my clumps are more defined, hold their natural shape longer, and just look good! I contribute my awesome day 2 and 3 hair to AIF, and discovering how my hair likes to be refreshed, but mostly to AIF!! I don't have to use a million products anymore to get my hair to hold throughout the day, just a quarter size of AIF and I'm good to go! It's amazing!
Review for Cantu® Shea Butter Comeback Curl Next Day Curl Revitalizer, 12 fl. oz. - 1 month, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I've heard a lot of great things about this product so I was excited to try it. Yesterday was my wash day and I was going to use it today to refresh, but I was too excited to wait and tried it last night. It's a good thing I did because I ended up washing my hair again.
.
1. This product smells like coconut. I don't like coconut but I was hoping this scent would disperse after it dried like most products. It didn't. Even after it dried it stayed as strong as ever and every time I moved my head I could smell it. My dad, sitting four feet from me, said it was really strong, too. I tried misting my hair with water to dilute it, but that didn't help.
.
2. I don't know if all Cantu spray bottles are like this or if it was just mine, but it wouldn't spray. It would just spit on my hair in one line so it didn't evenly coat my hair either.
.
3. Where the product spit on my hair, even after it dried, it looked and felt wet and thick and really oily and grimy.
.
4. It dulled my hair and made it look even dirtier.
.
5. The intensity of the scent gave me a headache.
.
I ended up washing my hair after after about two hours of applying this product. I am definitely returning it.
Review for Frontline - 1 month, 2 weeks ago
We only use Frontline on my 15 year old golden retriever puppy. It works very well and is reliable to do its job. Once applied I have no need to worry about whether or not it is doing its job. I highly recommend this product to pet owners who are looking for an effective and lasting flea and tick repeller.
Review for Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray - 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I absolutely love Jane Iredale products. I could rave about them forever but I'll stick to just this product. Out of all the sprays I've used by Jane Iredale, this is my absolute favorite. It smells like citrus and is incredibly refreshing. I use it after applying my Jane Iredale foundation and concealer. When using the two together, it makes the powder (I prefer powder over painting my face with a cream) waterproof and binds the particles together so you have almost porcelain looking skin. It also creates a hold so your makeup lasts longer throughout the day and you will have no need to reapply or fix anything. I highly recommend any Jane Iredale product because you will absolutely get your money's worth and no other product comes close to this quality.
Review for jane iredale POMMISST™ Hydration Spray - 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I absolutely love Jane Iredale products. I could rave about them forever but I'll stick to just this product. Out of all the sprays I've used by Jane Iredale, this is probably my second favorite (my favorite is Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray). It smells like pomegranate and is simply just wonderful. I use it after applying my Jane Iredale foundation and concealer. When using the two together, it makes the powder (I prefer powder over painting my face with a cream) waterproof and binds the particles together so you have almost porcelain looking skin. It also creates a hold so your makeup lasts longer throughout the day and you will have no need to reapply or fix anything. I highly recommend any Jane Iredale product because you will absolutely get your money's worth and no other product comes close to this quality.
Review for Jane Iredale D20 Hydration Spray Refil - 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I absolutely love Jane Iredale products. I could rave about them forever but I'll stick to just this product. Out of all the sprays I've used by Jane Iredale, this is probably my least favorite simply because I don't prefer the scent. It's floral, which I don't mind, but the specific flower reminds me of an old lady. Don't get me wrong, it smells good and the spray is perfect. I just prefer the Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray over this one. I use it after applying my Jane Iredale foundation and concealer. When using the two together, it makes the powder (I prefer powder over painting my face with a cream) waterproof and binds the particles together so you have almost porcelain looking skin. It also creates a hold so your makeup lasts longer throughout the day and you will have no need to reapply or fix anything. I highly recommend any Jane Iredale product because you will absolutely get your money's worth and no other product comes close to this quality.
Review for 3 Pack - La Looks Gel #10 Extreme Sport Tri-Active Hold (Blue) 20 oz - 3 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Purchased at: Walmart
I absolutely love this gel. I have wavy/curly hair and this gel gives me the perfect hold that lasts all day. I'll use this gel then diffuse until 98% dry. When completely dry, I'll scrunch my hair to break the hard shaft the gel creates. My hair then feels soft while still having the great definition and hold it had before I scrunched! This gel does make your hair feel hard, but scrunching makes that completely go away. I got one of these large bottles from walmart for $1.94. Love, love, love!
Review for Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water - 3 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I received this product this morning and decided to give it a try. Initially, I loved it! It smells wonderful and feels so good on my skin!

After a little while I decided to look in the mirror to see how it was sitting on my skin...

I look more oily than I usually do first thing in the morning. I'm not incredibly oily, but this makes it look like I have a thin oily sunscreen on.

My face itself feels fine, but if I touch my face, it's sticky. Why would someone want to feel sticky? It isn't terrible but I have a feeling I will collect dust and fuzz if I don't wash it off.

For the product itself, it really is a good idea. It is very refreshing when sprayed on my face and it does feel and smell so good! The nozzle is kinda crappy but it doesn't spit in you like other spray nozzles do. It sprays evenly, but because it has a small spray radius, it takes several pumps to cover your whole face. Some of the bubbles inside (mine got shaken up in the mail so it was quite bubbly) have tried to come out around the nozzle.

If you are looking for a cheap spray, this one is it. It smells wonderful but you can tell it's cheap. If you are looking for a good, refreshing, delicious smelling spray, try any of ( jane iredale POMMISST™ Hydration Spray ) these sprays! I've used this Pommist, the Balance Hydration spray (my personal favorite), and the D2O spray. They are more expensive, but you can get refills for quite cheap on overstock.com. These sprays last a while, feel wonderful, don't make you oily or break out, and aren't sticky!
Review for Equate Cotton Swabs - 3 months, 1 week ago
Purchased at: CVS
I've tried several different brands and these are by far the best. The cotton stays on, each cotton blob is equal thickness, you don't feel the stick underneath, and the stick doesn't easily bend. I've always used them after I shower but over the last few months I've also been using then to clean up my makeup. If I've smudged my eyeliner or eyeshadow, I'll dampen the cotton and it cleans it right up. I'll even use it to get excess mascara off my eyelids or nose, if I accidentally poked it while applying to my eyelashes.
