PROS: - smells really nice but not overwhelming, found myself sniffing my hair all day - left my hair soft and shiny, but did not weigh it down too much - definitely reduced frizziness - the leave-in is moisturizing but not too oily - overall loved the way my hair looked and felt
CONS: - might be too heavy for extremely oily or fine hair - it contains wheat protein, not good for those of us with gluten issues :-(
This is a great product if you are looking for subtle highlights that blend in with your natural color. My hair is dark blonde and takes color quickly - I left this on for 25 minutes (recommended time is 15-30) and you can barely see the highlights I added. I consider this a plus because I can't stand streaky highlights. My advice is to keep the pieces of hair very small (think the new "babylights" tend). Definitely not the kit for you if you are going for bright white, noticeable highlights.
I have this product in Escape. They are a bit pricey so I was nervous to see how it would go on. It is a gorgeous shade of pink that I absolutely love, very natural looking and comfortable to wear. Tarte uses high quality ingredients and is gluten free, so it was worth the money to me.
I was super excited to get the email letting me know I'd be receiving the Colgate SlimSoft VoxBox. Included were the SlimSoft toothbrush, and some travel-sized Colgate Advanced toothpaste and Colgate Advanced mouthwash.
According to Colgate, the bristles on this brush are 17x slimmer than a regular toothbrush and get deeper into the crevices between teeth and gums.
I opened this baby up right after eating my breakfast this morning (perfect time to test it out). I'm already a Colgate toothpaste fan. Their Optic White toothpaste is the only toothpaste I've ever used that made me say "Hmm...my teeth actually look whiter!".
My thoughts about this brush: PROS: *This actually feels like a combination of brushing and flossing. The little bristles really do get further between my teeth. *This is a nice gentle brush, but it still gets the job done.
CONS: *I wish the head of this brush was a bit wider - it's quite skinny and doesn't cover a ton of surface area.
OVERALL: I would definitely consider buying this again, especially if they made the head of the brush larger. I was skeptical that it would feel any different from a typical toothbrush, but it really does feel like flossing while brushing, pretty cool. :-)
I am really surprised that so many people find this to be an effective under eye concealer - I must have freakishly dark under eye circles! This works fine as a highlighter, but it did nothing to cover up my dark circles, and in fact the shimmer drew more attention to them. I'm giving it a D because it does effectively highlight, but if you're looking for a good concealer, this may not be the best option for you.
